We finally saw a trickle of injured guys getting back - Will Barton, Gary Harris, Taurean Prince, Elf Payton, Bobby Portis - when Clint Capela, Lonzo Ball, then Anthony Davis and Spencer Dinwiddie went down…

Kenneth Faried quietly put up a 12-point, 11-rebound double-double in a loss to the Wolves on Wednesday.
It was not one of his best performances as a Rocket, going 4-for-12 from the field and failing to record a steal or a block. Chalk this one up to a tough matchup against Karl-Anthony Towns. This is Faried's fourth double-double in his last five games.

Kenneth Faried had a solid outing on Monday vs. the Mavs, abusing their thin frontcourt to produce 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.
Yes, Clint Capela is nearing a return and the natives (Faried owners) are getting restless. Don't panic. Hold and see how he adjusts to life in Houston's second unit before doing anything drastic. He's earned a lot of leash given his recent performances.

Kenneth Faried started the second half Monday after leaving the game with a right knee injury.
It's good to see it was nothing major. We'll assume all is well at this point since he's already out there again.

Kenneth Faried headed to the locker room with an apparent right knee injury on Monday against the Mavs.
He appeared to be favoring his right knee after taking a charge. Isaiah Hartenstein replaced him in the lineup. We'll keep you updated on his condition.

Kenneth Faried double-doubled with 17 points on 8-of-11 shooting, 12 rebounds, two assists and one steal over 31 minutes in Saturday's home loss to the Thunder.
Faried has slowly improved his free throw shooting and it's allowed him to check in with top-75 value over the last two weeks. Competitive league owners aren't going to fall for it, but try to move Faried now while his future is still mildly obscured.

Kenneth Faried lit up the box score in Wednesday's win over the Kings and produced 13 points (6-of-9) shooting, 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and even one rare 3-pointer.
Faried has been money in fantasy since joining the Rockets and we even project him to earn minutes in the low-to-mid 20s when Clint Capela returns. He's one of the season's hottest pickups and is not showing any signs of slowing down.

Kenneth Faried scored 17 points on 8-of-11 shooting with 14 rebounds, an assist and a block on Monday.
Faried got a soft matchup against the Suns tonight and had himself a game. He's going to roll with value until Clint Capela comes back and even when he returns there's an outside chance he still retains low-end value with a bench role.

Kenneth Faried continued his solid run as a Rocket in Saturday's win, going for 16 points, 12 rebounds and a block in a tough matchup with the Jazz.
Houston's been far more effective at setting the tone with some physicality since Faried has climbed aboard. He even hit all four of his free throws tonight. The Manimal has been shelved for basically two whole seasons and looks ready to spend all that pent up energy in a flash, much to the delight of fantasy owners.

Kenneth Faried was in attack mode on Friday as he posted a season-high 23 points (9-of-13 shooting), six rebounds and one assist in a loss to the Nuggets.
He did not bring any defensive stats to the table but the Maninal went 5-for-6 from the line, which is more than what a lot of big men can boast of on most nights. He's a must-own, must-start guy while Clint Capela (finger surgery) is out for his points, rebounds and field goal percentage.

Kenneth Faried scored 19 points on 8-of-17 shooting with 11 rebounds, one steal and two blocks over 30 minutes in the Rockets' 121-116 loss to the Pelicans on Tuesday.
It's nice playing with James Harden and he's a must-start player until Clint Capela returns, though he needs to cool it on the free throws (50.0% on 5.2 FTAs/gm, last five) to really make the ROI sing.

Kenneth Faried continued to play well for the Rockets on Sunday as he had 12 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in a win over the Magic.
He shot 5-of-9 from the field and added two steals to the box score. He is looking like an ideal pick-up candidate right now if he is available in your league and should provide late-middle round value until Clint Capela returns. PJ Tucker did not do much in this game as he only had five points on 2-of-5 shooting with one steal in 39 minutes.

Kenneth Faried was huge in Friday's win over the Raptors, posting 21 points, 14 rebounds and a pair of blocks while going 8-of-11 from the field.
Faried corralled six of his boards on the offensive glass and helped the Rockets surge out to a huge early lead — a good thing, considering they lost the final three quarters and nearly blew an 11-point lead in the last 90 seconds. His boundless energy gives the Rockets a new look and is much-needed given the state of their frontcourt. While the Raptors resorted to hacking Faried towards the end of the night (5-of-9 FT), he still played 38 minutes as the only real option at center. He's an add for all teams that can take the hit at the free throw line.

Kenneth Faried drew the start at center for the Rockets on Wednesday and rewarded them with 11 points (5-of-11 shooting), eight rebounds, one assist, three steals and three blocks.
Faried, who normally prefers to operate close to the rim, made two attempts from long range but sadly, missed both. A potentially fresh facet to his game would only serve to further fan the flames of his already heating up fantasy value. He's worth owning in all formats after tonight. Add him with confidence.
'twas a week for fairly obvious choices at center to surface, but the gems don't end there!To access this post, you must purchase 2018-19 Hoop Ball In-Season Premium Membership or 2018-19 Hoop Ball Season Pass.
