    Dewayne Dedmon logged just 15 minutes in Sunday's leisure stroll against the Knicks but still managed eight rebounds, three assists, a block and a steal.

    Two points is pretty light but that's not why Dedmon's on your fantasy radar anyway. He's been horrid to start the season and has probably lost his starting job for good, but he's someone that should at least be on watch lists in 12-team leagues. That said, Dedmon isn't a guy that you need to create space for, either.

    Dewayne Dedmon logged 27 minutes on Friday adding 10 points, seven rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one three in the win over the Jazz.

    Just when you thought he was a "dead man" after logging only four minutes last time out, Dedmon showed some signs of life and played more than Richaun Holmes (20 minutes). It could've just been an off night for Holmes, but keep an eye out for how the minutes get distributed here moving forward in the wake of the Marvin Bagley injury.

    Richaun Holmes started and stuffed three shots on Wednesday to go with 17 points (8-of-10 from the floor), nine rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes.

    Stop everything and go add Holmes everywhere you can. Holmes has shown monster per-minute production throughout his career and is a standard-league player in only 24 minutes per game. Dewayne Dedmon (four minutes) didn’t play in the first half tonight and that bodes well for Holmes’ chances at sustaining minutes even when Marvin Bagley returns. If the minutes stick where they were tonight, Holmes can be a top-75 player while offering elite field goal percentage and great defensive stats.

    Dewayne Dedmon scored 11 points and contributed six rebounds, one block and seven turnovers in Saturday's blowout loss to the Jazz.

    After a great year in Atlanta, where he was capable of being a nightly double-double guy, Dedmon was given the keys to the Kings frontcourt with Willie Cauley-Stein leaving for the Warriors and Marvin Bagley injured. His performance this year has not been horrible, though it has been less than inspiring. He will need to start playing a lot better to justify the hype surrounding his signing with the Kings.

  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley suffered a non-displaced fracture in his right thumb and will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks as a result.

    Bagley might have injured himself during Wednesday's blowout the Kings suffered at the hands of the Suns. With Bagley sidelined, Dewayne Dedmon and Richaun Holmes will have more opportunity in the frontcourt while Harry Giles (sore left knee) could have opportunity if he is able to return from injury.

    Dewayne Dedmon had an uneventful debut on Wednesday, picking up three points, six rebounds and a block in just 14 minutes of action.

    The alarm bells are probably sounding in casual leagues, so you might want to consider Dedmon a bit of a buy-low target. That said, the push from Richaun Holmes will be very real, and while the Dead Man should still play enough (usually) to pick up boards, blocks and triples, he's going to be more of a late-round guy than a sneaky top-100 option. We'll be watching his minutes very closely over the next few games.

  • Harry Giles III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Harry Giles (sore left knee) was able to take part in the non-contact portion of practice on Monday.

    Giles still has not had a full practice, but this is a step forward for him. He is still unlikely to begin the regular season on the court. With Dewayne Dedmon and Marvin Bagley III expected to start, Giles does not have significant fantasy value right now.

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    The Kings had a healthy roster on Friday, with De'Aaron Fox (sore lower back), Dewayne Dedmon (illness), Corey Joseph (calf) and Trevor Ariza (lipoma excision) all full participants at practice.

    The team is rounding into form with the regular season around the corner. This roster comes with a decent amount of depth which could keep typical fantasy-relevant names, such as Dedmon, Ariza and Joseph, from reaching their full potential.

    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox (sore lower back) got in some non-contact work at practice along with teammates Dewayne Dedmon (illness) and Cory Joseph (calf) while Trevor Ariza (lipoma excision) returned to practice.

    This is good news for the Kings as they look like they will be near full strength when the regular season begins. Expect all four players to be healthy enough to play opening night barring a major setback.

    Dewayne Dedmon (illness) is probable for Thursday's tilt against the Suns.

    Dedmon was held out of practice on Wednesday due to a sickness. It will be interesting to see how the Kings will divide minutes amongst the plethora of centers that they have. Dedmon is a candidate to look at in standard redraft leagues towards the end of drafts. With the illness, it might be better to look elsewhere for a DFS play tonight.

    Dewayne Dedmon (illness) and Cory Joseph (illness) were both held out of practice on Wednesday.

    Dedmon and Joseph may have picked up this illness while traveling to India for a couple of preseason games. This isn't serious but it is worth noting that Joseph is also dealing with a calf issue.

    Dewayne Dedmon is the odds on favorite to start at Center according to James Ham of NBC Sports.

    This isn't much of a surprise seeing the money he was able to land from them this summer. He will obviously have to worry about some of the younger guys on this roster taking time from him down the road, but he makes sense starting with the Kings looking to win now. He's being taken around thee top-100 in drafts right now, making him a flier worth taking with his well-rounded approach.

    The Kings announced the signings of Dewayne Dedmon and Harrison Barnes on Monday.

    Dedmon figures to start at center and will give the Kings better rim protection and spacing than the departed Willie Cauley-Stein did. He will likely be pushed for minutes by Richaun Holmes, however, and the organizational desire to test out Marvin Bagley and Harry Giles at the five also makes his standing tenuous. Dedmon should be a steady, late-middle round center as long as he's playing minutes in the mid-twenties, at least. Barnes rejoins the Kings after being traded to Sacramento last season and will further cloud the forward mix. Miscast as a small forward, we'll see if that's where the Kings put him. He's going to be his usual plodding self and is a late-round option with limited upside.

    Dewayne Dedmon has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal with the Sacramento Kings according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    It felt like the Kings were in on basically every big-name center on the free agent market. While Dedmon doesn’t come with name recognition, he should serve to be an excellent fit with an up-and-coming Sacramento team. Dedmon figures to start in and play minutes in the high 20’s, while not taking away too many opportunities from Marvin Bagley. He should be considered to maintain the same level of fantasy value that he held last season.

    The Kings and Dewayne Dedmon are expected to come to a quick agreement on a three-year, $40 million deal when free agency opens.

    It looks like the Kings have found their center, and Dedmon is a good fit in the sense that he won't be expecting massive amounts of playing time. He'll provide better shooting and rim protection than Willie Cauley-Stein and will leave more than enough minutes for Sacramento to trot out Marvin Bagley or Harry Giles at the five. Dedmon, 30 years old, will have a partial guarantee on the final year of the deal.
