Dillon Brooks had a strong performance against the Thunder on Friday, finishing with 22 points (10-of-18 FG), six rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers and one steal.
The good Dillon Brooks is back! Brooks is always living and dying on his jumper, and this was his best performance in the bubble on the strength of strong shooting from the field. He did a lot of damage in just 26 minutes of action, and the Grizzlies will continue to let him fire away as they try to hold onto the final playoff spot out West. Kyle Anderson did not bring the offense in comparison, but he did provide seven points, four assists, three rebounds, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer. Anderson was very on-brand.

Kyle Anderson came through with eight points (2-for-7 FG), eight assists, a steal and two threes against the Spurs on Sunday.
Anderson's had some weird games in Orlando, going completely against the grain in terms of what we know about his skill set. He's produced just two steals across his first two resumption games but has three 3-pointers and nine assists, which sticks out compared to his season averages of 0.8 steals, 0.5 blocks, 0.3 threes and 2.2 assists per game. Production is production but Slo Mo is going against type right now. He should be rostered for his efficiency and defensive work, so hopefully Anderson sorts that out soon.

Kyle Anderson managed 13 points on 4-of-6 shooting while chipping in another seven rebounds, two assists and one steal in Tuesday's win over the Heat.
Anderson has been arguably the Grizzlies' most consistent player since returning to action. He turned in another strong performance on Tuesday including going 3-of-4 from the perimeter. His improved shooting has certainly been evident, an indication he is well and truly over the shoulder injury that has plagued him in recent times. The starting position seems to be his for the taking and given what we have seen thus far, he is worth a flier in most fantasy resumption formats.

Kyle Anderson put up 15 points on 3-of-7 shooting in 24 minutes in a 119-104 loss to the Rockets on Sunday.
Anderson put on a 3-point barrage against the Sixers, but his points came from the free-throw line in this one as he shot 9-of-10 from the stripe. He also added three blocks and four rebounds to the stat sheet. The Grizzlies were 12-8 in games he started during the season. Anderson has the ability to produce versatile stat lines, so pay attention to his numbers and success as a starter.

Kyle Anderson drew the start on Friday vs. the Sixers, dropping 14 points, four 3-pointers (4-of-5 shooting), eight rebounds, one steal and one block in a strong outing.
With Jae Crowder no longer in Memphis, there is some new opportunity available. Justise Winslow (hip) recently went down and is no longer a threat to be active, and Anderson has a great opportunity to seize the starting slot if he can perform well. Playing well has been a challenge for Anderson who has struggled since joining the Grizzlies last year. If he were suddenly to have a strong 3-ball at his disposal this would be a completely different conversation. Just keep an eye on Anderson's success as a starter for now.

Kyle Anderson finished the 2019-20 fantasy season with top-230 value, averaging 5.7 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.5 blocks and 0.3 3-pointers in 19.3 mpg.
You can see SloMo's roto-friendly game, but there just wasn't enough to justify serious fantasy ownership this year. This was a far cry from last year's 29.8 mpg, and while Anderson did see his minutes increase after Jae Crowder was traded, it wasn't enough to undo the damage of a very slow start. Fantasy GMs should consider Anderson a potential late-round selection going forward, though it will largely depend on what the Grizzlies' forward rotation looks like around him.
February 28, 2020, 11:39 pmKyle AndersonSF, Memphis Grizzlies
Kyle Anderson had an unimpressive four points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block on Friday.
That's not inspiring but Anderson has been a comfortable middle-round play over the last two weeks and still saw 33 minutes. He looks locked in as a starter with Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke out, and while his blend of production certainly works better in roto formats it's time to consider Slo Mo a must-add, especially if you need defensive stats, a strong FG% and a smattering of rebounds.

Kyle Anderson scored seven points with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 18 minutes on Wednesday.
Anderson has the ability to post across-the-board production, but isn't great in any category outside of steals. He is a top-100 player over the past two weeks and will have a boost in value while Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke are sidelined. He can be added in 14-team leagues as a low-upside steals specialist until the Grizzlies get healthy.
February 22, 2020, 1:23 amJosh JacksonSF, Memphis Grizzlies
Josh Jackson put up a season-high 20 points in Friday's loss to the Lakers, shooting 9-for-12 from the field and hitting two 3-pointers plus grabbing three rebounds.
This makes it back to back games where Jackson has pinged in deep-league radars. He scored 11 points in his last game, so he's definitely someone to keep an eye on for value moving forward. Kyle Anderson started at SF but was mostly quiet in his 22 minutes with just seven points, six rebounds, three assists and a steal to his name.

Facing the Wizards on Sunday, Kyle Anderson re-entered the fantasy landscape with 16 points (7-of-9 FG), five rebounds and one steal.
After Jae Crowder and Solomon Hill were shipped to the Heat, Anderson was inserted into the starting lineup and has been able to take advantage thus far. Justise Winslow is supposed to enter the conversation, but his health is always in question and it makes sense to give Anderson some time if you have him. SloMo is looking like a streaming option for the time being. De'Anthony Melton is another player expected to rise after these departures, but he was quiet with seven points and one steal on 3-of-12 shooting from the field. Don't throw in the towel on the steals-specialist with upside yet.

Kyle Anderson started for a late-scratched Jae Crowder on Wednesday and managed six points on 2-of-5 shooting, five rebounds, six assists and one steal in 26 minutes.
The Grizzlies finally traded Andre Iguodala and both Crowder and Solomon Hill were held out of this contest and are rumored to be possibly part of the deal. The Grizzlies are expecting to receive Justise Winslow in return, so when he's healthy he should eat up into the little value SloMo's managed to muster lately.
February 5, 2020, 8:44 pmJae CrowderPF, Memphis Grizzlies
Jae Crowder is a late scratch on Wednesday with trade rumors surrounding him.
Zach Lowe reported on Monday that the Grizzlies were asking for a first-round pick in a trade for Crowder. Solomon Hill is also a late scratch and Kyle Anderson got the start. Anderson may be starting but he would be a deep-league player only if Crowder is traded. De'Anthony Melton is the player who would benefit the most if minutes opened up in the Grizzlies' rotation and could be a standard-league player in only 25 minutes per game.

Marko Guduric (illness) will not play during Wednesday's game.
Guduric has only averaged 10.8 minutes over his last ten appearances. Kyle Anderson should see a couple of extra minutes.

Kyle Anderson bounced back on Friday with 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting, adding six rebounds, three dimes, one steal, one trey and two blocks in 24 minutes.
Anderson is coming off a two-point dud in his return the bench on Thursday. This marks his best performance to-date in 2020. He's still a ways away from being fantasy-relevant outside of streaming opportunities but is someone to watch as Slo Mo can bring a good game when he's healthy.
January 29, 2020, 1:22 pmJae CrowderPF, Memphis Grizzlies
Jae Crowder (right knee soreness) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game.
Crowder has missed two straight games with the knee ailment but seems ready to return. Kyle Anderson is likely to see a lesser role against the Knicks.
