Dillon Brooks scored 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting to go with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers on Monday against the Warriors.
Brooks has been providing steady value for owners in need of triples and points. Grayson Allen (15 points, two rebounds, one block and three triples) had a solid game, but can be left on the wire as Brooks is the better of the two to own in Memphis.

Dillon Brooks (shoulder) started on Saturday and scored 10 points with two steals in 23 minutes.
Brooks was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury but was able to play through it. Brooks is a late-round value in standard leagues and will have a boost in in the short term with Ja Morant (back) week-to-week.

Dillon Brooks popped up on the injury report as questionable for Saturday with right shoulder soreness.
It would be disappointing to see Brooks miss time as he is getting plenty of touches with Ja Morant out of the lineup. Tyus Jones and De'Anthony Melton are going to get plenty of run right now, and are worth a pickup in most standard leagues.

Dillon Brooks burned the Timberwolves for 26 points, three assists and two rebounds on 9-of-18 shooting.
Brooks had it going and was 4-of-5 from downtown. Brooks should continue to see an increase in usage with Ja Morant ruled out for at least the next week. Brooks is worth a look in standard leagues if you have a roster spot to play with at the end of your bench.

Dillon Brooks scored only nine points on 4-of-13 shooting on Monday to go along with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, one trifecta and one turnover.
Brooks did not shoot the ball well on Monday but was able to contribute in other categories during Monday's loss. He tied Jae Crowder for most minutes played with 31. Brooks' fantasy value hinges on scoring so he needs to shoot the ball better in order to be relevant in standard leagues. Although it was nice to see him contribute more than normal in other categories.

Jae Crowder double-doubled with 15 points (5-of-11 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), 11 rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes in a 95-114 home loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
Crowder has been a late-round player this season, but unless you need an inefficient player with a high floor and low ceiling, there are probably better options available. Dillon Brooks, who is in the same range but with a bit more upside, had 18 points, three rebounds, two steals, one block and three treys in 32 minutes.

Dillon Brooks finished Friday's win with 20 points, two rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers.
Brooks has an extremely hollow stat set (his current 1.1 steals and 1.7 threes would go down as career-highs) but is returning top-110 value so far thanks to 27.5 mpg. He's been a nice source of scoring a should continue to hold down that role for the Grizzlies. Brooks is safe to stick into your lineups until further notice.

Dillon Brooks led the Grizzlies with a game-high 21 points on Monday, while adding two rebounds, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer.
He went 8-for-17 from the floor and 4-for-6 at the line. Brooks has been the best option at shooting guard for the Grizzlies and hopefully you held onto him throughout his mini slump. There aren't many options for wing scorers in Memphis which gives Brooks some extra leash to work with.

Dillon Brooks struggled to score five points on Saturday, shooting 2-of-8 from the field while adding five rebounds and four assists.
Foul trouble got Brooks tonight as he picked up five fouls in 20 minutes. It was Brooks' second bad game in a row (three points on 0-of-7 shooting on Friday) and it is extra disappointing as he wasn't able to benefit with Ja Morant (rest) sitting out. Brooks is just two games removed from scoring 31 points with five threes on 9-of-16 shooting. Brooks is worth holding on to for one more game, but don't hesitate to drop him for a hot free agent if he plays poorly again on Monday.

Grayson Allen (left ankle soreness) will remain out against the Mavs on Saturday.
This will be Allen's fourth consecutive game on the sidelines after averaging 7.4 points in 16.9 minutes in his first five games. Dillon Brooks and Marko Guduric will continue to soak up all the shooting guard minutes in the meantime. Brooks followed up a 31-point gem on Wednesday with a 3-point clunker on Friday so he has been as hit-or-miss as they come so far this season.

Dillon Brooks scored a grand total of three points (0-for-7 shooting) in Friday's loss to the Magic, adding four rebounds, two blocks and one assist.
At least Brooks went a perfect 3-for-3 from the free throw line? In all seriousness, the blocks salvaged his line for fantasy managers who were just starting to buy into his hot streak. If you used an add on Brooks you might as well hold him for his game on Sunday, but be ready to cut bait if his cold streak continues.

Dillon Brooks led the Grizzlies in scoring on Wednesday with 31 points on 9-of-16 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assists and five 3-pointers.
Brooks has separated himself from the pack on the Grizzlies now and should be owned everywhere to see where this goes. He's posted two big lines consecutively and Memphis has been dying for a dynamic wing with any hint of playmaking for years now. It might only last a few games, but Brooks just can't be ignored with how well he's been playing as of late.

Grayson Allen (ankle) is being listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Wolves.
Dillon Brooks and Marko Guduric are likely to continue seeing increased minutes for however long Allen remains out. Brooks had 17 points and nine rebounds in 32 minutes against the Rockets on Sunday.

Dillon Brooks scored 17 points on 7-of-18 shooting (0-for-7 3PT) while adding nine rebounds, an assist and two steals on Monday.
Brooks had another great game tonight and the fact that he was able to fill it up across the board without hitting any triples gives us hope for him in fantasy leagues. He's worth an add to see how things shake out in deeper leagues, but he's barely inside the top-150 in value so those in standard leagues might want to wait a bit before making a move.

Dillon Brooks shot 9-of-15 from the field, hit three 3-pointers and scored 21 points on Sunday, marking his best performance of the young season.
The Grizzlies clearly valued Brooks’ spacing as he received over 37 minutes in the OT victory. Brooks will need to shoot well to have late-round value this season as he is not going to contribute in many other categories outside of scoring. A few more games like this could get him on the radar in standard-leagues, but for now he is more of a deep-league special.
