The Wizards are expecting to receive calls on Davis Bertans, but opposing teams will have a hard time convincing them to make a deal, according to Chris Crouse of HoopsRumors.
Bertans is averaging a career-high 15.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.0 triples so far this season. Many within the team’s front office are huge fans of Bertans and with the franchise looking to improve sooner than later, the Wizards could opt to keep the 27-year-old power forward with the intention of re-signing him this offseason and having him available for a more competitive campaign next year. The Latvian forward is in the middle of a breakout year and owners should enjoy the ride.

Davis Bertans continued to drain threes, making eight more on Tuesday in a 107-114 road loss to the Hornets in which he also had 32 points (11-of-18 FGs), nine rebounds, one assist and one block in 30 minutes off the bench.
That makes it at least four 3-pointers in 11 of Bertans' last 13 games. In 9-cat leagues, he's been the 13th-best player over the past month. It's quite a shock, and it won't last, so either enjoy it while you can or sell high if you happen to have picked up Bertans at the right time.

Davis Bertans did it again on Sunday vs. the Clippers, going for 25 points (7-of-13 FG, 5-of-6 FT), six 3-pointers and steal.
Bertans is lights out from deep, and has the greenest of lights any shooter can get. With Thomas Bryant absent for the time being he will get plenty of minutes, and he clearly is capable of returning mid-round value with them.

Davis Bertans made just 7-of-20 shots from the field in a loss to the Heat on Friday, but did his damage elsewhere, mustering 19 points, 10 rebounds, five 3s, one assist and two blocks.
Bertans has been a lights-out shooter as of late, catapulting him into fantasy's top-10 last week with 5.7 3s and 22.0 points per game.

Davis Bertans hit a season-high seven 3-pointers in 37 minutes off the bench on Thursday, scoring 25 points.
Bertans took advantage of a hobbled Moritz Wagner in this contest and the seven triples were a season-high in a season that has already featured four games before this with at least five 3-pointers. Bertans is definitely a 3-point specialist at his lowest and with Thomas Bryant out for the next few weeks, he has to be deployed.

Mo Wagner (left ankle sprain) participated in a "light practice" on Wednesday and his status for Thursday's game remains unclear.
Wagner has missed the last two games with this injury. He should be owned across all formats, especially with the news of Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction) being sidelined for at least the next three weeks. If Wagner is unable to play on Thursday, Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans will likely see more minutes in the frontcourt.

Davis Bertans started for Thomas Bryant (foot stress reaction) on Tuesday and did not disappoint with 21 points on 7-of-16 shooting with five rebounds, four 3s, one steal and two blocks (zero turnovers) in 40 minutes.
With Bryant out, Bertans is officially must-own, must-start in all formats on the heels of this performance. He should easily flirt with top-30 to top-50 value over the next few weeks.

Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Tuesday's game.
Davis Bertans would be in line for more minutes if Wagner cannot play. Wagner has averaged 12 points per game in limited minutes so far.

Davis Bertans put up 20 points on 7-of-10 shooting in a loss to the Clippers on Sunday.
Bertans knocked down six triples and added four rebounds, two steals and one block to the stat sheet. He had nine cash counters, which is why he is a valuable fantasy asset. He is a top-80 option in 9-cat formats and should easily maintain that value.

Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Clippers.
Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans should see a few extra minutes, while Thomas Bryant holds down the center position. All three guys are worth looking at in DFS, as the Clippers tend to be vulnerable in the paint.

Davis Bertans hit four 3-pointers on Wednesday night to finish with 16 points and four rebounds in 27 minutes.
Bertans is a good 3-point specialist option with some upside for some other popcorn numbers. It's been enough to put him in the top-75 in 9-category formats. He's going to maintain value as a shooter throughout the year.

Davis Bertans was on full-auto mode on Friday, knocking down 6-of-11 shots from deep en route to his 20 points (7-of-13 shooting), eight rebounds, four assists and one steal.
This is a classic Bertans explosion. Efficient 3-point shooting is his upide-wheelhouse, so this is what you can expect when he's finding the bucket. Excellent value so far coming from a mostly late-round flier pick.
November 20, 2019, 10:04 pmRui HachimuraPF, Washington Wizards
Rui Hachimura put in a solid effort, ending Wednesday night's contest with 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting, seven boards and two assists.
Hachimura has been able to score and rebound with nice a field goal percentage, but that's about it. Until he adds another dimension to his game, he'll hover at late-round value. Davis Bertans, on the other hand, came off the bench adding 21 points, five boards, four assists, a steal and four 3-pointers. Bertans is just inside top-100 value on the season.

On Sunday vs. the Magic, Davis Bertans let it rain from deep as he scored 15 points on 5-of-11 3-point shooting along with eight rebounds and two steals.
We know Bertans will always be good for 3-pointers, but the increased rebounding of late would be a welcome addition to his fantasy game. If you are in need of 3-pointers Bertans is your guy, just don't expect much else from the low thrills fantasy option.
November 13, 2019, 10:01 pmDavis BertansF, Washington Wizards
Davis Bertans put up nine points, 10 rebounds, three assists, a block and three 3-pointers on Wednesday night.
Bertans went 3-of-9 from the field, with all but one of those attempts coming from deep. The big man is averaging 27.5 mpg this season and is quietly turning in top-130/100 value in 8/9-cat leagues, so he should be rostered in just about all formats. Bertans is rarely exciting but you can't argue with the output.
