Adrian Benjamins and Neil Rochlani break down the seven games from Monday night. Harden goes for fifty-four and currently sits on top of 8 category leagues (on a per game basis). Durant scores 49 as…
December 8, 2018, 8:28 pmJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden recorded a game-high 35 points on 11-of-22 shooting (six 3s) with four rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block in Saturday's loss to the Mavs.
Harden did his best to carry his team but the Rockets' losing streak is now up to three games. He played hard but it's been pretty clear in recent games that they need more help. Until help does arrive, expect Harden to carry a heavy load like this one on most nights.
December 7, 2018, 1:00 amJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden struggled against the Jazz on Thursday, scoring 15 points on 5-of-16 shooting with two triples, six rebounds and two assists.
He also committed seven turnovers and couldn't hit any shots inside the paint. Harden was draped all night by multiple Jazz defenders and even when he got to the rim he was always contested. The reigning MVP has been great this season and tonight just wasn't his night.
December 3, 2018, 10:52 pmJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden had an amazing first half and a second half to forget on Monday against the Wolves, scoring 22 of his 29 points in the first two frames to finish with eight assists, two steals, a block, four boards and three triples.
The Rockets completely fell apart in the fourth and Harden and Chris Paul (five points, seven assists, three steals) both struggled to put themselves and their teammates in positions to score. The Rockets are only one game outside the eight seed but they'll need to improve their roster if they want to make the same amount of noise as they did last year in the playoffs.
December 1, 2018, 10:40 pmJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden was a scoring machine on Saturday as he dropped a game-high 30 points on 9-of-16 shooting (six 3s) with six rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block.
Harden did commit seven turnovers but we've loved him more in 8-cat from the beginning anyway. That said, he does so much that he's still posting top-4 value in 9-cat. He's a bankable stud who is capable of carrying any fantasy team to the top of the podium.
November 30, 2018, 10:46 pmJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden got his regular backcourt mate back (Chris Paul) in Friday's win over the Spurs and fed off their on-court rapport to finish the night 23 points, 10 dimes, three triples and a blocked shot.
Harden has been killing it lately and is on track to finish as a top-5 player in 9-cat, whether he sports a headband or not. It's all steam ahead for this fantasy train.
November 28, 2018, 11:22 pmJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden scored 25 points, with 11 rebounds and 17 assists in a loss to the Mavs on Wednesday.
Harden dropped another monster line since Chris Paul was once again out with a leg injury. Eric Gordon started in Paul's place and 17 points on 6-of-15 shooting. Harden added six steals and eight turnovers to the box score. The performance was an 8-cat gem, but the turnovers made the game slightly less monstrous for 9-cat owners.
November 26, 2018, 10:06 pmJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden went ballistic on Monday, hanging 54 points on 17-of-32 shooting with seven triples, eight boards, 13 dimes and three steals.
Harden has been dropping monster lines consistently and it's partly due to Chris Paul (leg) sitting out. The Rockets are back in a mini-funk which means Harden's usage is going to skyrocket, especially with the team short on wings lately. When you have a top-5 fantasy asset lines like this are bound to roll in.
November 24, 2018, 10:08 pmJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden finished Saturday's game with 40 points (14-for-30 from the field, 7-of-12 from the line), four rebounds, 13 assists, five 3-pointers, one assist and nine turnovers, but it wasn't enough as the Rockets fell to the Cavs.
Harden was uncharacteristically poor from the line and the turnovers are ugly, but he's still a top-5 player in 9-cat and it was nice to see him stay relatively efficient despite the massive volume. The Beard took advantage of a great opportunity tonight with Chris Paul resting and he should be in for plenty more big games this year whether CP3 is active or not.
November 23, 2018, 9:59 pmJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden didn't have enough juice in overtime as he finished with 33 points (9-for-27 from the field), three treys, eight assists and a block in Friday's road loss to the Pistons.
Harden also had seven turnovers tonight and his 5.1 turnovers per game lead the league. He's the No. 1 player in 8-cat (top-5 in 9-cat) and is still putting up major stats for his owners despite Houston's struggles.
November 21, 2018, 10:38 pmJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden had another full line in Wednesday's 126-124 win over the Pistons with 43 points on 10-of-20 shooting to go with four triples, seven rebounds, nine assists and four steals.
Harden worked the Pistons all night with the two-man game and had a pristine night from the free throw line as well. The hamstring injury is a thing of the past and the Beard is rounding into MVP form.
November 18, 2018, 12:06 amJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden toyed with the Kings in Saturday's 132-112 win, going 10-of-17 from the field for 34 points to go with four rebounds, eight assists, three steals, four 3-pointers and a perfect 10-of-10 mark at the free throw line.
Harden's routinely posting 8-cat gems but is still the sixth-ranked player in 9-cat despite 5.0 turnovers per game (and six more tonight). There's no need to ever worry about The Beard; as long as he's on the floor he's locked into first-round value.
November 15, 2018, 10:35 pmJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden led the Rockets in scoring in Thursday's 107-86 win over the Warriors with 27 points on 8-of-23 shooting to go with four triples, three rebounds, three assists and two steals.
Harden was launching from deep all game and even though he made four triples, he attempted 14 shots from deep. He was able to go 7-for-8 from the free throw line to help offset his 8-for-23 mark from the floor. The Rockets offense is starting to hum again and Harden and Chris Paul are still playing the three-man game with Clint Capela hunting mismatches.
November 11, 2018, 10:02 pmJames Harden - G - Houston Rockets
James Harden dropped 40 points on 9-of-20 shooting with seven rebounds, nine assists and nine turnovers in a 115-103 win over the Pacers.
The turnovers were not ideal in this one, but he had an 8-cat gem. He added eight 3-pointers, one steal and one block to the box score. He has been a top-15 value this season and should not fall below that point at all this season.
Adrian Benjamins and Neil Rochlani break down Sunday's games, the Jimmy Butler trade, and Carmelo. Antetokounmpo, Harden, Milsap and Paul have big nights. Mitchell Robinson has 9 blocks and Hernangomez starts and plays 30 minutes…
