James Harden couldn't find the basket on Wednesday, shooting 3-of-12 from the field, but still ending with a respectable line of 13 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and only two turnovers.
Harden has had a couple rough shooting nights back-to-back, but still manages to help the team out across other categories. James Harden is still the top player in both 8/9-cat leagues.

James Harden shot just 13-for-37 from the field but still delivered for fantasy teams with 41 points (10-of-11 FTs), six rebounds, six assists, five 3-pointers and a block in 39 minutes in a 110-121 loss to the Grizzlies on Tuesday.
Harden may have missed 24 shots, but he did only turn it over once. This season's top fantasy player, Harden has missed just one game and shows no sign of relinquishing his title anytime soon.

James Harden recorded the wrong kind of triple-double in Saturday's win over the Wolves, collecting 32 points on 8-of-17 shooting with 12 rebounds, six 3s, two steals eight assists and 11 turnovers.
Ouch. Those 11 turnovers hurt for sure, highlighting Harden's value gap in 8 and 9-cat formats. That said, we don't really care about the turnovers, seriously and are just happy to see him dominate in so many other categories.

James Harden was awful on Thursday, scoring 17 points on 5-of-17 shooting to go with three rebounds, three assists, one block and two triples.
Harden continued his awful shooting into this game and looked gassed. He played 38 minutes last night and the Rockets were down big entering the fourth so he wouldn't check in during the final period. He should be much better in the next game.

James Harden was cooking on Wednesday, ending the night with 41 points (9-of-34 shooting, 4-of-20 from deep), 10 boards, 10 assists, two steals and three blocks, but also turned the ball over eight times.
Harden had a great popcorn stat line, but the shooting was atrocious. The 19 made freethrows helped save his night, but it's difficult to praise that kind of field goal percentage. That being said, this is James Harden, and is one of the best players in the game.

James Harden put on a clinic on Friday to lead the Rockets to victory over the Sixers with another gaudy line of 44 points (13-of-24 FGs, 12-of-12 FTs), 11 rebounds, 11 assists, six 3-pointers, a steal and a block in 41 minutes.
Harden is just out of this world. No one in the league has come close to throwing down monster lines like this one. He's a near-lock to finish atop of the 8/9-cat rankings at season's end.

James Harden (sprained right toe) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday and filled up the box score with 35 points (10-for-17 FG), three rebounds, six assists, a steal, two blocks and six 3-pointers.
This is nothing special for Harden but it's big for fantasy GMs, as he was questionable to play and the Rockets have only one more game this week. This game should erase any concerns one might've had about Harden coming off his seemingly minor injury.

James Harden (sprained right toe) and Clint Capela (heel bruise) will play in Tuesday's matchup vs. the Nuggets.
Fantasy's top dog in James Harden will be returning tonight and Capela will be back on the court alongside him for what should be a good matchup vs. the Nuggets. Both players should be plugged back into lineups accordingly.

James Harden (sprained right toe) is planing on suiting up for Tuesday's marquee matchup with the Nuggets.
Harden missed his first game of the season in Sunday's loss to the Pelicans, but it looks like the team will be back to full strength as C Clint Capela (heel) plans to play as well. Harden has been the best player in fantasy this year by a country mile and can safely be plugged back into lineups.

James Harden (sprained right toe) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.
Harden missed Sunday's game against the Pelicans and they were predictably blown out. He's on the record as being a stat-chaser so don't expect this absence to linger for much long, which is to say, he'll likely be out there against Gary Harris and the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Jame Harden (sprained right toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Pelicans.
The Rockets will be resting both of their studs tonight and this will open up a ton of DFS and streaming value. Austin Rivers and Eric Gordon are expected to start in place of Russell Westbrook and Harden, but neither hold any long-term value.

James Harden (sprained right toe) is being considered questionable on Sunday vs. the Pelicans.
He's yet to miss a game this season and he's currently fantasy's top dog. Russell Westbrook has already been ruled out of this one so if Harden does play, expect a huge line out of him. If not, then Ben McLemore and Austin Rivers should get some more opportunity.

James Harden dominated the Nets on Saturday with 44 points (17-of-27 from the floor), 10 rebounds, six assists and six threes in a 108-98 victory.
Harden continues to roll as the top player in fantasy and nothing should stop him from staying on top all season.

Russell Westbrook hit just 11-of-32 shots (0-for-8 3PTs) in Wednesday's Christmas Day loss to the Warriors, finishing with 30 points to go with 12 boards and five assists.
The Rockets fell asleep on national TV and they don't have the depth to survive when one of their superstars goes cold like this, even to a team like the Warriors. James Harden was quiet with 24 points, six boards, 11 assists and three steals, and Danuel House added 18 points, five boards, five treys, one steal and one block in the loss.

James Harden scored 34 points on 10-of-19 shooting with five rebounds, five assists, two steals, a block and four 3-pointers on Monday.
Harden took a backseat for a good chunk of the game, allowing Russell Westbrook to handle things, but late in the fourth he took over. The No. 1 fantasy player continues to play as such.
