April 10, 2019, 1:18 amJulius Randle - F - New Orleans Pelicans
Julius Randle didn't play in Tuesday night's finale, but he had quite a season with a top-50 finish in 8-cat total stats.
Randle was top-55/85 (8/9-cat) on a per-game basis in his 73 games this season. He increased all his counting stats (most notably his points and threes to 21.4 and 0.9 respectively) while improving his free throw percentage slightly. His field goal percentage did drop a bit as he increased his 3-point attempts. The 24-year-old Randle has a player option that he's likely to decline this summer. If he returns to a rebuilding Pelicans squad, he could be even more valuable. However, he's probably in line for a dip in value if he goes most anywhere else.

Julius Randle is expected to be given the night off on Sunday, which will allow Christian Wood to make another fill-in start.
Randle has had a long and successful season, but we will get to see Wood in action tonight from the get-go. Feel free to fire him up in DFS or if you can still stream him in season-long leagues.

Julius Randle hung 31 points with 13 rebounds in Friday night's 133-126 loss to the Suns.
Randle attempted 24 shots in Friday's loss as he is really the only consistent veteran left on the active roster for the Pelicans. He has upped his scoring average to 25.8 points per game over the last two weeks as he does his best to position himself for a nice payday this summer should he decline his player option and become a free agent as expected.
April 3, 2019, 11:32 pmJulius Randle - F - New Orleans Pelicans
Julius Randle was keeping the Pelicans alive on Wednesday in a 115-109 loss to the Hornets as he had 34 points and 11 rebounds on 12-of-19 shooting.
He added three 3-pointers, three assists, two steals and one block and shot 7-of-8 from the line. Randle has been the most reliable player on the Pelicans this season and the Anthony Davis saga has only benefitted his value and growth as a player.

Julius Randle sprained his left index finger late in the fourth quarter of the Pelicans’ game with the Lakers on Sunday to finish with 17 points, five boards, three assists, a steal and two triples.
X-rays came back negative on Randle’s finger so hopefully, he doesn’t end up missing any time. He was listed as available to return after the injury.
March 28, 2019, 11:24 pmJulius Randle - F - New Orleans Pelicans
Julius Randle led the charge with 34 points (12-of-24 FG, 3-of-5 3PT, 7-for-7 FT), 11 rebounds and three assists in Thursday's 121-118 win over the Kings.
Randle's feasting with Anthony Davis and his back spasms going from probable to out before tipoff, and we wouldn't expect to see much of The Brow from here on out. It's been a career season that should finish on a high note for Randle.
March 26, 2019, 11:36 pmJulius Randle - F - New Orleans Pelicans
Julius Randle finished Tuesday's 120-130 loss to the Hawks with 24 points, nine rebounds, five assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Randle played a team-high 34 minutes and went 7-of-13 from the field and 9-of-11 from the line. He predictably had a full line with Anthony Davis out and should be rock solid from here on out. Randle's managed to stay above the fray in New Orleans this year and should get a nice new paycheck this summer.
March 18, 2019, 11:19 pmJulius Randle - F - New Orleans Pelicans
Julius Randle thrived against the Mavs on Monday, flirting with a double-double with 30 points on 14-of-24 shooting, adding nine rebounds, four dimes, two 3s, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.
Randle has been a steady source of production as the Pelicans go through the motions of finishing off the 2018-19 season. He should hold steady as a mid-round play. Deploy him with confidence.
March 16, 2019, 10:37 pmJulius Randle - F - New Orleans Pelicans
Julius Randle followed up Friday's career performance with 21 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and a steal on Saturday against the Suns.
Randle predictably slowed down with Anthony Davis back in the lineup, but you're not going to find many players upset with this output. Davis logged 22 minutes and had 15 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and a block.
March 15, 2019, 11:20 pmJulius Randle - F - New Orleans Pelicans
Julius Randle had a career-night in Friday’s 122-110 loss to the visiting Blazers, scoring 45 points on a ridiculous 20-0f-34 from the field, adding two 3s, 11 rebounds, six assists, three blocks, two steals and seven turnovers in 42 minutes.
The seven turnovers and his 3-for-11 from the line take some of the shine off that line, but not much. Randle has averaged over 30 points a game over his last three with massive usage as Anthony Davis (rest) and Jrue Holiday (abdominal strain) continue to miss games. Hopefully, he can keep it up for owners battling in H2H playoffs.
March 8, 2019, 10:30 pmJulius Randle - F - New Orleans Pelicans
Julius Randle was an effective facilitator in the post for the Pelicans in Friday's loss to the Raptors with seven assists, while adding 18 points on 6-of-15 shooting and seven rebounds.
Given the Pelicans' recent injuries, Randle should be in for a strong finish to the season. While he's not the most defensively proficient of big men out there, Randle does help in the assists category with his 3.0 assists per game this season.
