Phew! Last night was quite the stressful one; I couldn’t get to sleep at all. I was streaming intently and in addition to my planned moves, guys like Jeff Teague, Marvin Williams, Moe Harkless, Richaun…

Jakob Poeltl put up six points and 10 rebounds on 3-of-6 shooting with two blocks in a win over the Celtics on Sunday.
Poeltl has provided solid middle-round value over the past month and should hover around the top-100 for the final stretch of the season. Davis Bertans played well off the bench as he had nine points and six rebounds on three 3-pointers. Bertans is more of a deep-league shooting specialist.

LaMarcus Aldridge had one of his worst games of the season with 10 points on 5-of-13 shooting to go with four rebounds, four assists and five blocks in Friday’s road loss to the Rockets.
Aldridge was spectacularly ineffective tonight and owners can just hope he bounces back in his next game. Jakob Poeltl came off the bench in this one and added eight points, eight rebounds, one steal but unfortunately no blocks which is the third straight game he’s failed to record a rejection.

Jakob Poeltl scored six points on 3-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds on Monday.
Poeltl cooled off on the defensive stats, but we expected that, given he tallied 10 blocks in his last two games. Coach Popovich has taken a liking to Poeltl and it looks like he's finally getting consistent rotational minutes which means he's a must-own player going forward.

Jakob Poeltl kept his foot on the gas in Saturday's 108-103 win over the Blazers, posting eight points, six rebounds and five blocks in 25 minutes of action.
That's two consecutive five-block outings for Poeltl, who has risen to top-40/20 levels in 8/9-cat leagues over the last couple of weeks. In the month of March he's shooting .724 from the field with 6.7 rebounds, 2.3 blocks and 1.2 steals per game. Poeltl should not be on any waiver wires right now and has finally come into his own as a member of the Spurs.

Jakob Poeltl swatted five shots in 27 minutes as a starter for the Spurs on Friday, adding 12 points, nine rebounds, two dimes and two steals to the box score.
This was by far Poeltl's best game over the last month so he could be heating up. He's been a top-30 play in 9-cat over the last couple of weeks thanks to his decent blocks and low turnovers.

Jakob Poeltl had an underwhelming start, putting up just four points on 2-of-2 from the floor, though he added seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 29 minutes vs. the Mavs on Tuesday.
Poeltl is just a streaming option, even though he's been starting. He can help you in field goal percentage, rebounds and blocks in most games, but it's not reliable at this point.

Jakob Poeltl (left hamstring soreness) will start on Sunday against the Bucks.
Poeltl expected to play after going through practice on Saturday. He'll be returning from a brief one-game absence and has been on a nice run of late, so look to get him in your lineups if you need some blocks.

Jakob Poeltl (let hamstring soreness) participated in practice on Saturday and expects to play against the Bucks on Sunday.
Poeltl said after practice that he felt good and didn’t have any problems so he should be back after missing only one game. He has played over 25 minutes twice in his last three games and with Pau Gasol out of town, he might get some more of those. He is still difficult to trust in standard league settings but his per-36 line of 12.5 points, 11.8 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.7 blocks makes him somewhat intriguing.

Rudy Gay will replace injured Jakob Poeltl in the Spurs starting lineup Wednesday vs. the Hawks, per Gregg Popovich.
With Poeltl out, Davis Bertans should see a bump in minutes and deserves a look in deep leagues as a streaming option for points and threes.

Jakob Poeltl (hamstring) is listed as out for Wednesday night's game against the Hawks.
Poeltl has been very productive lately since joining the starting unit. Rudy Gay may return to the starting lineup with Poeltl out, and rookie Drew Eubanks is a name to watch if he picks up some of the minutes left behind.

Jakob Poeltl participated in the Spurs’ shootaround this morning, but he's still considered questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Hawks.
The Austrian center has been productive lately, averaging 7.3 points and 8.0 rebounds in 3 games after Pop inserted him in the lineup. His injury could mean more playing time for rookie big man Drew Eubanks with Pau Gasol now in Milwaukee. In 26 games for the Spurs' G League team in Austin, Eubanks is averaging 16.6 points on 64.1 percent shooting from the field, 7.5 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 1.3 assists.

Jakob Poeltl (left hamstring soreness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.
Poeltl, who has been starting recently as Gregg Popovich prefers the two-big lineup to start games, has been putting up decent numbers since the change. Keep on rolling with Poeltl for as long as this arrangement lasts.

Jakob Poeltl will draw another start on Monday against the Nuggets.
Poeltl will make his third-straight start on Monday and Gregg Popovich said he'd prefer to start each game with two bigs, but the matchups don't always allow it. It's good to hear if you're a Poeltl owner. He only had five points in Saturday's game, but seven rebounds, two steals and three blocks in 26 minutes is not too shabby at all. You can keep rolling with Poeltl as long as he's starting.
