Kyle McKeown joins the show to do a little dumpster-fire-team analysis: what are they thinking when they make strange moves? Why? And how can we use that to plan for fantasy value? Plus, a look…

Paul George stayed hot in Wednesday's loss to the Pelicans as he exploded for 25 points, 11 boards, five dimes, three triples, one block and two steals.
PG13 hit 9-of-17 shots from the field, making this his second straight game where he's shot over 50 percent. He's doing it all and if he can improve his shooting efficiency, sky's the limit for this superstar.

Paul George was on fire on Monday against the Jazz, converting on 8-of-10 shots and 10-of-12 freebies to score 31 points with five boards, three assists, three boards and four steals.
That's back-to-back four-steal games for PG-13 but he's been rated R by his opponents this season. George is currently the 6th most valuable 8-cat player and is showing no signs of slowing down as he's finished as the 2nd overall return over the last week.

Paul George struggle with his shot, hitting just 6-for-16 from the field to finish with 19 points (2-of-9 from deep), six assists, five rebounds and four steals in Friday’s loss to the Bulls.
George also missed a game-winning 3-pointer as time expired which was fitting for the dud he gave us tonight. Tonight’s poor shooting aside, P.G. has been returning top-10 value in 8/9-cat and is rewarding owners who drafted him at the turn.

Paul George scored 47 points (25 in the 4th) with 15 rebounds and four assists and hit the game-winning shot as the Thunder got a comeback win over the Nets on Wednesday.
The Nets were up 18 points to start the last frame and George single-handedly wrecked them and led the Thunder to a comeback win. He shot 15-of-27 from the field and added six 3-pointers to the box score. He is a top-10 fantasy player this season and a dominant performance like this one only helps him. He should be worth the pick for owners this season as the Thunder are just the Paul George and Russell Westbrook show.
December 3, 2018, 9:45 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George double-doubled against the Pistons on Monday with 17 points, 10 boards, four assists, two steals and two triples.
George is returning top-10 value on the season and likely has some regression coming considering the highs he’s averaging for steals and blocks. If you can get a bonified first-round talent for George it might be worth your while. Keep in mind that Russell Westbrook also missed some time early in the season when George dominated.

Paul George scored 20 points (three 3s) to go with five boards, three assists, two steals and three turnovers in Friday’s easy defeat of the visiting Hawks.
With or without Russell Westbrook in the lineup, PG’s returned first-round play in 8 and 9-cat as had been a great play for anyone who took him around the turn in drafts. Dennis Schroder added 18 points, two 3s, eight assists and two blocks and has had consistent top-75/100 in 8/9-cat.
November 24, 2018, 11:51 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder dropped a 98-105 decision to the Nuggets on Saturday despite another great showing from Paul George, who posted 24 points, 11 rebounds, two steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers.
George continues to post top-15 fantasy numbers and won't slow down all season. You can worry about some of his shots, rebounds and assists being taken by Russell Westbrook but George does so much heavy lifting in steals, threes and blocks that it won't push him outside the second round in terms of fantasy value.

Paul George scored 27 points on 9-of-24 shooting with four triples, nine boards and three assists against the Kings on Monday.
George was slow to start the game but ended up getting his points. The return of Russell Westbrook shouldn't affect his defensive numbers and he's continuing to launch from deep, going 4-for-11 from downtown tonight. George was the No. 1 fantasy player last week and he should be much better gathering defensive stats against their next matchup against the Warriors.
November 18, 2018, 1:03 amPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George continued his hot run on Saturday, notching 32 points, 11 rebounds, three steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers in a win over the Suns.
George went 9-of-22 from the field and hit all 11 attempts from the free throw line. PG has been electrifying over his last five, averaging 27.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.6 steals, 0.8 blocks and 4.0 3-pointers while shooting .457 on over 21 shots per game. Life's good without Russell Westbrook but it's not like George is going to slip outside of the top-15 when OKC is at full strength.
November 14, 2018, 10:53 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George lit up the Knicks on Wednesday night, needing only 29 minutes to tally 35 points (13-of-22 from the field), seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers.
George also didn't commit a turnover and hit all four of his free throws to complete one of the lines of the night. PG's shooting percentage can sometimes be harmful, especially as he gets more touches with Russell Westbrook sidelined, but there's no doubt he can deliver first-round lines on any given night. Enjoy the ride.

Paul George put up 32 points in Monday's 118-101 win over the Suns, going 11-of-19 from the field with eight boards, six assists and six triples.
OKC got out to a huge lead and was able to coast for most of the night, though a big third-quarter push from the Suns meant that the starters had to stay out there and keep racking up stats. We're forever in your debt, Phoenix. PG is going to get all the touches he wants with Russell Westbrook out and we might see him push into late-first-round territory over the next week or so.

Paul George scored 20 points on 8-of-21 shooting with 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals, three treys and five turnovers over 38 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Mavs.
As you can see he's having to do too much and it'll result in some voluminous but inefficient lines. He's bringing back top-20 results so far this year and owners have to be comfortable with his trajectory.
November 8, 2018, 10:46 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George scored 20 points and added 11 rebounds, six assists and six steals on Thursday night.
It wasn't an efficient night for George who shot 7-of-21 from the field. The six steals were huge from him and he was able to play a big hand in eliminating the big guns for the Rockets. He is an elite asset for fantasy purposes with his versatility and should be a building block for any lineup.
November 7, 2018, 9:32 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George put up 18 points with seven rebounds on 7-of-16 shooting in a 95-86 win over the Cavs on Wednesday.
Russell Westbrook was out, so you would think that his stats would increase. However, he had a similar game to his averages on the season in 38 minutes of play without Westbrook. He did add his typical two assists and two steals to the box score, so it was a type of game you would expect from George on any given night.
