Julius Randle had a brief reprieve to his poor shooting in his previous game, but was back to the usual in Wednesday's loss, scoring 17 points (5-of-13 shooting), eight rebounds, two assists, three steals and two triples in 36 minutes.
Randle has been one of the fantasy season's worst picks with his high-volume, low shooting numbers, and until he turns that around he will keep himself outside of being usuable in standard leagues.

Julius Randle finally got it going on Monday night in a 123-105 blowout win over the Cavs with a season-high 30 points (12-for-17 FGs, 3-for-5 FTs) and seven boards, four dimes, two steals, one block, three triples and just one turnover in 32 minutes.
Randle had been one of the worst regular players in fantasy until this game. His turnovers are up (2.8 to 3.6), his free throw percentage is down (73.1 to 62.1) and his field goal percentage is still down significantly (52.5 to 44.7) even after today's boost. He should continue to improve, but last season's middle-round finish doesn't look like it'll be replicated this season.

Knicks coach David Fizdale said that Mitchell Robinson will not start but is available off the bench on Monday despite his sprained right ankle.
Fizdale tabbed Taj Gibson, Julius Randle, and Marcus Morris as starters in the frontcourt. It seems odd that Robinson would be deployed if he's not fully healthy considering the Knicks' record, but Fizdale is desperate for a win.

Bobby Portis scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting, adding two rebounds, one assist and one steal in Saturday's loss to the Hornets.
Teammate Taj Gibson got the start at center over Mitchell Robinson but Portis was still able to play 22 minutes off the bench. The Knicks wanted to go small this game, though they actually found a lot of success when they plugged Robinson in, and Portis was an integral part of their offense putting up 10 shots. Offensively Portis provides a punch but leaves a lot to be desired with the rest of his game. Fantasy managers should be wary with the current logjam in the Knicks front court.

Julius Randle scored 17 points on 8-of-18 shooting to go with 10 rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer in Thursday's 106-103 win over the Mavs.
This is just another typical line for Randle and the only thing that was missing was a lack of free throw shooting. He's going to be good for points and boards, but that's about it and the Knicks are a fantasy wasteland.

Julius Randle struggled with his shot, going 5-for-15 from the field and 6-for-9 from the line for 17 points, six rebounds, three assists one 3-pointer and two steals.
Randle is outside the top-250 right now, which is not something that's going to hold. He's a buy-low candidate right now, but calibrate the price you're paying as the Pelicans-Randle is a thing of the past.

Julius Randle scored 20 points on 6-of-14 shooting with 16 rebounds in a blowout loss to the Cavs on Sunday.
Despite having solid real-life stats, Randle’s value has remained outside the top-200 value. He has solid value in points, rebounds and assists, but he has been detrimental to fantasy squads in every other category. He could turn it around and he is definitely worth hanging on to.

Julius Randle had a well-rounded line on Friday, notching 21 points (7-for-16 FG, 5-of-8 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, a steal and two 3-pointers.
Randle got some extra opportunity up front with Mitchell Robinson out, and it certainly gave him more room to operate down low. The big man has disappointed so far this year, returning top-135/235 (8/9-cat) value, with that big gap the result of an insane 4.2 turnovers per contest. He should pick up the pace but anyone who drafted him off last year's great campaign will probably end up disappointed this year.

Julius Randle recorded 20 points (8-of-15 shooting), three rebounds, two assists, three treys, one steal and one block in Wednesday's 102-122 loss to the Pistons.
The steal and block were a welcome sight coming from Randle, who isn't particularly known for his defense. He, Marcus Morris and RJ Barrett have emerged as the most consistent fantasy assets from the Knicks given early returns.
November 3, 2019, 9:33 pmBobby PortisPF, New York Knicks
Bobby Portis drew the start on Sunday but was quiet in 20 minutes of action, scoring two points with six rebounds, one assist, a steal and a 1-for-6 shooting line.
Portis started over Mitchell Robinson because David Fizdale thought it might "unlock" some things for Julius Randle. Randle found a whole other level all right, scoring eight points with seven rebounds on 4-of-13 from the field. The Knicks should just stick to their expected starting lineup as it seems to suit everyone better, but you know how things go in New York.

Julius Randle was a ghost in Friday's loss to the Celtics, chipping in just eight points on 3-of-7 shooting with 10 rebounds, five assists and one steal in 34 minutes.
Randle has been playing well enough to earn him a pass for this bad game. He played more of a facilitator's role in this one, but expect him to reassert himself on the offensive end soon enough.

Julius Randle nearly triple-doubled with 16 points (7-of-13 shooting), 10 rebounds and seven assists on Wednesday.
Randle was minus-16 on the floor tonight in 37 minutes. It doesn't hurt his fantasy game though, since he has the ball in his hands constantly with the Knicks. Expect Randle to produce mid-round value with big counting stats, big turnovers and little defensive stats.

Julius Randle struggled again on Monday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting with 14 rebounds and five assists while committing eight turnovers.
Randle is the main playmaker on the Knicks, for better or for worse. He's going to bludgeon his way into high-volume stats across the board with his usage, but the ball-handling duties have been sloppy at best lately. In his last three games, he's committed eight, five and six turnovers and it doesn't look like that'll clean up much in the future. The shooting hasn't been there either, as he's .432 through the first four games of action. He'll pick that up a bit, but the stat set deficiencies are still there from last season.

Julius Randle wasn't able to get his shot going as he scored 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting, along with 10 rebounds, three assists and a steal on Saturday vs. the Celtics.
Randle played a season-low 30 minutes in the blowout loss. He missed both his 3-point attempts and was 2-of-4 from the line. Look for him to bounce back against the Bulls in the next game.

Julius Randle struggled with his shot, going 5-for-15 from the field to finish Friday's game with 14 points, 11 boards, four dimes and six turnovers.
Randle's team-high 39 minutes indicates that his role is safe from the big-man logjam that the Knicks have. Taj Gibson (14 minutes, two points) and Bobby Portis (10 minutes, two points) were not much of a threat tonight, keeping Randle's mid-round value window safe.
