Dwight Powell had a mediocre game on Friday night, dropping eight points (3-of-6 FG), six rebounds and two assists against Hassan Whiteside and the Blazers.
Powell has a nasty habit of posting uninspiring lines like this right after he gets people back on the bandwagon. Still, he's been an easy middle-round value over the last couple of weeks thanks to an insane .783 mark from the floor and is now up to top-150 value on the full season. It's been a disappointing year overall, but Powell is at least trending in the right direction.

Dwight Powell was one rebound shy of a double-double on Wednesday, finishing with 17 points (8-of-10 shooting), nine rebounds and a single assist.
Powell continues his productive streak as Kristaps Porzingis was a late scratch. This will likely take a small hit with KP's return, but he has certainly played well enough to keep his share of minutes.

Dwight Powell didn't miss on Tuesday, shooting 9-for-9 from the floor and 2-for-2 from the line as he put up 21 points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes in a 124-97 blowout win over the Warriors.
Powell was excellent tonight, and he's on an incredible "shooting" (mostly dunking) run. There aren't many players that help in field goal percentage as much as he does given his low volume. His value has been helped by the absence of Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness), but he shouldn't drop off much once Porzingis returns. Give him a look if you could use a boost in field goal percentage with solid boards, steals and blocks.

Dwight Powell finished with 19 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and one steal on 8-of-11 shooting in a team-high 34 minutes on Saturday.
The only three shots that Powell missed were 3-point attempts and he could’ve had a much bigger game if he knocked those down but we won’t complain. With Kristaps Porzingis out of the lineup, Powell should continue to produce and be worth a spot in starting lineups.

Dwight Powell had a strong overall performance on Wednesday, ending with 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks.
Powell continues to provide value with Kristaps Porzingis out of the lineup. Until Porzingis returns, Powell can be a safe start in standard leagues. He is only just outside the top-50 in the last two weeks.

Dwight Powell shot a perfect 6-for-6 from the floor on Monday, scoring 16 points with seven board and one assist.
Powell had another classic line for himself tonight and should continue to see an extra boost while Kristaps Porzingis nurses his knee injury.

Dwight Powell picked up five fouls in 23 minutes on Thursday, finishing with four points, one rebound, a steal and two blocks.
Powell's defensive work saved his night, especially since he went an uncharacteristic 2-of-8 from the field. An 0-for-4 mark from deep skewed that a bit but give Powell some leash considering his top-90 value over the two weeks.

Kristaps Porzingis (sore right knee) is being listed as out for Thursday's game against the Nets.
With Porzingis missing another game Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber will see their values increase with additional playing time, while Dorian Finney-Smith will see extra minutes in small-ball lineups.

Kristaps Porziņģis is questionable ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Nets as he nurses a sore right knee.
Porziņģis was a late scratch on Tuesday and head coach Rick Carlisle did not give a timetable in regards to his return. It is very positive that this injury did not occur on his surgically-repaired left knee. Maxi Kleber and Dwight Powell will see their values increase for as long as Kristaps remains out.

Dwight Powell scored 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting with eight rebounds, three assists and two steals over 24 minutes in Saturday's win over the Warriors.
Powell has re-established his 9-cat value as he has flirted with top-100 value over the last month. Give him a look if you need big man help.

Dwight Powell stirred on Sunday, delivering 17 points (6-of-9 FG), nine rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.
Powell has been a big disappointment with top-195/175 value (8/9-cat) so far, but this is what it looks like when he's at his peak. He isn't a must-roster player at this point but if you have space he's a nice stash.
December 19, 2019, 12:34 amDwight PowellPF, Dallas Mavericks
Dwight Powell had a quiet game on Wednesday night, but still tallied five boards, an assist, a steal and two blocks to go along with his seven points.
Powell is not an exciting fantasy player but can add rebounds and FG% at the end of your roster. He's not a must-own in standard leagues, but could be someone worth picking up for some top-120 upside.
December 14, 2019, 11:43 pmDwight PowellPF, Dallas Mavericks
Dwight Powell had eight points, four rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer in 27 minutes on Saturday.
Powell looked to be building some positive momentum after two notable performances in his last four, but this game doesn't do much to inspire optimism even if it isn't a complete dud. Even amidst a disappointing start to the year, Powell has top-190 value because of his elite FG% and is a top-120 player in the last couple of weeks. It's not an exciting profile but there's value to be had.
December 12, 2019, 11:48 pmDwight PowellPF, Dallas Mavericks
Dwight Powell put up nine points, 10 rebounds, and two defensive stats in 31 minutes on Thursday against the Pistons.
Powell got the bulk of the minutes up front again and it looks like he's going to separate himself from Maxi Kleber going forward. Kleber scored just five points in 18 minutes. Powell has way more potential as a top-100 option going forward so some clarity is nice here.

Dwight Powell netted four points, six rebounds and three steals in only 18 minutes during Saturday's win over the Pelicans.
Powell followed Wednesday's 9-of-9 shooting night by shooting a perfect 2-of-2 on Saturday. Powell's night was cut short with the rest of the starters, but Powell will look to keep the ball rolling on Sunday versus the Kings.
