90s HIP-HOP Edition It was 90s hip-hop that I grew up on and it’s what indirectly got me into the wider world of music. First, it was being exposed to so many 70s R&B and…

Mason Plumlee posted 11 points (5-of-6 shooting), eight rebounds, three assists and three blocks in Monday's home win over the Heat.
Plumlee started even with Paul Millsap returning from an ankle injury and logged 31 minutes. He's going to fade a bit as Millsap gets back to full strength and retakes the starting job, but you can feel good about rolling with Plumlee until the wheels fall off. It's been a surprisingly productive season for him considering the wealth of talent in Denver's frontcourt.

Mason Plumlee played well in another start for Paul Millsap (ankle soreness) and produced 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting with eight rebounds, six assists and one steal in Friday's loss to the Sixers.
Enjoy his value while it lasts. Millsap could be back after an extended rest over the All-Star break. Trey Lyles has also been playing well in Millsap's absence. Tonight he posted 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting, four rebounds, five assists, one steal and two blocks in 24 minutes.

Mason Plumlee was glorious for the Nuggets as he started for Paul Millsap (ankle soreness) on Wednesday, tallying 24 points (season-high) on 10-of-12 shooting, six rebounds, one steal and three blocks.
Frankly, Plumlee has been the better player this season when given the right opportunity. He's a must-own, must-start guy while Millsap is out of commission.

Mason Plumlee started on Monday and scored 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting with 11 rebounds, six assists and two steals.
Plumlee got the start in place of Paul Millsap (right ankle soreness) and he made the most of it. Coach Malone was more inclined to play Plumlee with the twin towers lineup against the Pistons and on a night where the Nikola Jokic struggled, Plumlee made plays across the floor for the team. When either of the Nuggets bigs go down, Plumlee makes for a strong value play in DFS and is also a great streaming target.

Mason Plumlee will start in place of Paul Millsap on Monday against the Pistons.
Millsap's dealing with an ankle issue. Plumlee will be a relatively popular DFS option tonight given his ability to chip in defensive stats with some out-of-position assists. Look for Trey Lyles to get extra run off the bench as well.

Mason Plumlee started for a suspended Nikola Jokic on Friday and had a productive game with 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting from the field and 4-of-4 shooting from the line.
Plumlee added seven rebounds, six assists and one steal to box score in his 25 minutes on the floor. However, with Nikola Jokic expected back in the next game, Plumlee should deflate back to a late-round value reserve, making this gem more appealing for DFS than season-long formats.

Mason Plumlee scored nine points on 3-of-7 shooting with five rebounds, six assists and one steal in 20 minutes off the bench on Tuesday against the Warriors.
Plumlee has been useful lately but things are going to get really crowded, eventually, and he's more suited for deeper leagues where his modest, but consistent role can pay off.

Mason Plumlee started again on Thursday night, turning in 12 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 30 minutes of action.
The Plumlee-Jokic frontcourt didn't really work the first time the Nuggets tried it on for size but it's been a decent look this year, and it has the added benefit of keeping Paul Millsap's minutes down. Plumlee still is only a rebounding guy for standard-leagues (i.e., not an option) but if the minutes stay in the upper twenties he's going to have more deep-league appeal than anticipated. Millsap had 10 points, six rebounds, two dimes and a triple in 22 minutes off the bench.

Mason Plumlee scored seven points on 3-of-5 shooting with eight rebounds, three assists and one steal over 22 minutes in Saturday's win over the Suns.
Plumlee didn't really get the job done when the Nuggets were banged up, and now that they're getting healthy he's well off the fantasy radar. The same goes for Trey Lyles and Torrey Craig.
December 18, 2018, 11:48 pmMason Plumlee - F/C - Denver Nuggets
Mason Plumlee started and got 34 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Mavs, scoring 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting with nine rebounds, three assists and no steals or blocks.
Plumlee is going to be on the late-round radar for however long the Nuggets are in their current configuration. The return of any one main cog will send him to deep league status but for now he's worth a look.
December 10, 2018, 11:23 pmMason Plumlee - F/C - Denver Nuggets
Mason Plumlee double-doubled in a start on Monday with 12 points and 10 boards to go with an assist, a steal and two blocks.
Plumlee played well in a start over Trey Lyles tonight and logged 35 minutes. He's going to be good for low-end big man stats if he continues to start while Trey Lyles (nine points, 4-of-12 shooting with seven rebounds and two steals) needs to fix his shooting before he can be valuable for fantasy owners. Both players are decent flier options as the Nuggets will be shorthanded for quite some time.
December 10, 2018, 8:46 pmMason Plumlee - F/C - Denver Nuggets
Mason Plumlee will join Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray, Torey Craig, and Juan Hernangomez in the starting five on Monday.
Plumlee gets the starting nod over Trey Lyles tonight. Both big men should be added in deep leagues for their uptick in value with Paul Millsap out 4-6 weeks with a broken toe.

Mason Plumlee came to play on Saturday night, posting 11 points, seven rebounds, two assists and four blocks in 21 minutes of work.
Plumlee has eight defensive stats over his last two games and is a fine deep-league specialist, but we can't endorse him as anything more than that despite the occasional outburst.
November 24, 2018, 3:32 amMason Plumlee - F/C - Denver Nuggets
Mason Plumlee double-doubled in 21 minutes off the bench in Friday's blowout win over the Magic, scoring 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting with 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks.
Plumlee can do this every once in a while but as long as Nikola Jokic is upright he's just a deep league asset.
