The holiday and New Year's celebrations are done and it's time to get back to life, back to reality. The reality is that there are only 8 more weeks (scoring periods) left for standard Yahoo…
January 18, 2019, 11:08 pmMarco Belinelli - G/F - San Antonio Spurs
Marco Belinelli scored 19 points on an ugly 5-of-14 shooting and added three 3s, five boards, three assists and two steals in Friday’ s home win over the Wolves.
Belinelli played 34 minutes with no DeMar DeRozan but has held top-80 value in 9-cat over the last two weeks on the back of 15.3 points and 2.7 treys. Derrick White also stayed hot, hitting 6-of-8 shots for 12 points, two 3s, six boards and three assists but had no defensive stats.

Derrick White scored 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting with two 3-pointers, four rebounds, seven assists and a block against the Hornets on Monday.
Over the past month, White has been a top-70 player in 9-cat leagues thanks to his averages of 0.9 triples, 1.1 steals and 1.1 blocks. He shouldn't be on any waivers in standard leagues.

Derrick White scored 23 points on 10-of-17 shooting with a 3-pointer, five rebounds, eight assists, two steals and a block on Thursday.
White's only 3-pointer was a huge one towards the end of regulation and has played well enough to push back Patty Mills (14 points, three triples, three boards, six dimes and two steals) in the rotation. It took a while, but White is finally shaping up to be the multi-cat contributor we thought he would be.
January 9, 2019, 10:30 pmDerrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White had 12 points (4-of-7 shooting), two rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer in Wednesday's road loss but also racked up five fouls and was limited to just 16 minutes of action.
This one was definitely rough but the production was there — the minutes were lacking. Patty Mills took advantage to net 13 points, three triples and a pair of steals in 31 minutes of action. Don't think too much about this off game from White, as he's asserted himself as a must-start option of late. It's a standing he should hold the rest of the way, even accounting for some shooting regression.
January 7, 2019, 9:44 pmDerrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White scored 17 points on 4-of-7 shooting with five rebounds and two assists on Monday.
White stayed relatively hot in regards to shooting and went 9-for-9 at the line which is a huge boost for owners in that category but he failed to record a block or a steal tonight. That's the first time in 14 games that he's failed to gather any defensive stats which is his bread and butter. He's on a bit of a hot streak in terms of scoring and should cool off soon, but the defensive numbers should come back.
January 6, 2019, 12:11 amDerrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White scored 19 points on 8-of-9 shooting with a three, a block and a steal against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
White has continued his hot streak, shooting 80.0 percent from the field in his last four games. This kind of shooting is unsustainable especially for a guard so you could consider selling high on him especially if you could get a top 70-80 asset in exchange.
December 31, 2018, 9:39 pmDerrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White scored 22 points on 8-of-9 shooting (2-of-2 3PTs, 4-of-5 FTs) with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and three blocks in Monday's home win over the Celtics.
White is starting to tip his balance of good and bad games into the correct direction and he's well worth a look if you need a point guard. Over the last month while he has been struggling, he has returned solid top-125 value when we include this performance in the sample. If he can carve out a consistent role he can possibly cross top-100 value, which was why he was hyped up in the first place before all the vanishing acts.
December 30, 2018, 1:04 amDerrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White scored 12 points on 4-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer over 29 minutes in Saturday's win over the Clippers.
If White could hang around here on the slow nights he'd be a great fantasy asset with a late-round floor and upside beyond that. He had six steals on Friday night and he's been heating up. Our advice prior to this was to try and put a marker on him when he makes some noise, just in case he can finally pull it all together. He has been doing that.
December 29, 2018, 12:00 amDerrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White started again on Friday night and came through for fantasy owners with 10 points, six rebounds, three assists, a 3-pointer and six steals in 28 minutes of work.
White continues to bounce up and down, and while most owners are probably comfortable moving on without him after he got some post-Dejounte Murray-injury hype late in the offseason before suffering his own injury, he's one to keep an eye on. That's three straight quiet-but-good performances from White, so it might be time to start thinking about a pickup in 12-team formats. He's not a must-add guy just yet, but if you need a guard he's probably forced his way onto your roster with 13 defensive stats over his last three games and 4.4 assists per game over the last five.
December 22, 2018, 11:53 pmDerrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White scored five points on 2-of-6 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and three blocks over 28 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Rockets.
White blocks the ball well for a point guard and he has a sneaky good stat set if he can ever step into a more prominent role. He has been added and dropped quite a bit this season and hasn't been able to consistently produce, but he'll be worth watching and possibly stashing in hopes the upswing you catch him on is the one that lasts.
December 12, 2018, 12:15 amDerrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White started again in the Spurs' 111-86 win over the Suns on Tuesday, scoring four points on 1-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, seven assists and three steals in 27 minutes.
The assists and steals keep this line from being a disaster and the bottom line here is that he's a starting point guard that stands a good chance to play the 27 minutes you're seeing over the long haul. The smart money says he finishes the rest of the year out with value in the top-125 range, with some risk and reward on both sides of that target.
December 9, 2018, 9:37 pmDerrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White started on Sunday and scored six points with two rebounds, four assists and three steals as the Spurs beat the Jazz.
He saw more minutes with both Dante Cunningham and Davis Bertans out, but this performance was promising to see from White nonetheless. He is outside the top-300 this season despite the hopes of being a solid late-round play heading into the season. Look for a few steady performances from White before adding him to your fantasy roster.
