Adrian Benjamins and Neil Rochlani break down the nine games from Monday night. Paul George goes for 47 points and 8 3- pointers and is now 2nd overall in total fantasy value. Saric starts in…
February 14, 2019, 10:21 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George scored 28 points on 11-of-29 shooting with three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block against the Pelicans on Thursday.
So it turns out George is actually human and it showed tonight. Even though he had a poor shooting night, he was still able to deliver a full line for owners and we're going to cut him some slack since he's been playing at an MVP level for the past month. The All-Star Break should charge him back up.
February 11, 2019, 10:48 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George scored a season-high 47 points and triple-doubled in the Thunder's 120-111 win over the Blazers on Monday, hitting 15-of-26 shots (8-of-13 3PTs, 9-of-11 FTs) with 12 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals.
George is just ridiculous this season and he's moving into a solid top-3 position on the year with no end in sight. Russell Westbrook had a mere 21-point triple-double with 14 rebounds, 11 assists, one steal, two blocks and one trey, but hit just 5-of-19 shots to get there with six turnovers. There's no question who OKC's top player is nowadays but Thunder fans will gladly take both of them.

Paul George scored 45 points on 12-of-22 shooting (6-of-14 3PTs, 15-of-18 FTs) with 11 rebounds, three assists and one steal in Saturday's road win over the Rockets.
George surpassed Steph Curry for the No. 3 slot in 9-cat leagues when on the floor this season and he's right there in 8-cat formats. He'll be a common characteristic of winning squads this season. Russell Westbrook added 21 points, 12 boards, 11 assists, two steals, one block, one three and 10 turnovers, Steven Adams went for 6 & 9 with two steals and two blocks, and Jerami Grant went for 8 & 8 with two steals and two blocks of his own in the win.
February 7, 2019, 10:44 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George cooked again on Thursday with 27 points on 7-of-16 shooting with six 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists and four steals.
George's ridiculous scoring bender came to a halt against the Grizzlies today, but it wasn't surprising due to the pace of the game. He was still able to give you elite 3-and-D stats and is playing a a peak level in his career. It's an awesome thing to witness especially after that leg injury years ago.
February 6, 2019, 12:07 amPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George scored 39 points on 9-of-26 shooting (6-of-15 3PTs, 15-of-16 FTs) with eight rebounds, three assists and three steals in the Thunder's 132-122 win over the Magic on Tuesday.
George is sitting at No. 4 in standard leagues when on the floor and has about a 10-game games played edge on Steph Curry and Anthony Davis, the latter of which might not play again this season if he's not traded. Russell Westbrook added 16 points, 15 rebounds, 16 assists, one steal, one block and seven turnovers in the win.
February 3, 2019, 4:42 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George kept his foot on the gas in Sunday's loss, scoring 37 points to go with four rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and five 3-pointers.
George did go 11-of-27 from the field, but he's been a top-5 fantasy player this year and has his name in the MVP conversation. It's a forgivable offense considering his body of work this year, as well as the rest of the line today.
February 1, 2019, 11:08 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George went thermonuclear on Friday vs. the Heat, hitting 10 treys while shooting a blistering 14-of-26 from the field to end the night with a team-high 43 points.
George added seven boards, five assists and two steals to complement his scoring binge. This is the fourth time he's eclipsed the 40-point mark this season. He's been one of fantasy's surprise invaders into the top-5 territory and has well-earned his chance to stake his claim as one of the game's elite superstars.
January 27, 2019, 8:59 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George brought down the house on Sunday, leading the Thunder to a 118-122 win over the Eastern Conference-leading Bucks with 36 points, 13 boards, three steals, three assists and eight threes.
George shot 12-of-21 from the field and had some monstrous dunks. He's been a top-5 player in 8-cat on the season and has shown no signs of slowing down.
January 24, 2019, 10:27 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George dropped 23 points with six treys, 11 boards, seven dimes, a steal and a block against the Pelicans on Thursday.
George has been the MVP for the Thunder this season and tonight's stat line was just another day in the office for him. He's keyed in on the defensive end and is also jacking up triples at a career-high rate (8.8 3PA). It helps that he's hitting them at a .389 clip, good for 3.4 a game paired along with his elite 2.3 steals. All of this is a recipe for the No. 5 player in 9-cat leagues with little room to fall due to his skill set.
January 22, 2019, 10:44 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George scored 36 points on 10-of-21 shooting (3-of-6 3PTs, 13-of-15 FTs) with eight rebounds, four assists, five steals and one block in the Thunder's 123-114 win over the Blazers on Tuesday.
George is sitting prettily in the No. 5 slot in standard leagues this season and we could quibble with a few numbers but the reality is that he has taken over the top spot for this Thunder squad. Russell Westbrook can still light it up and had 29 points, 10 boards, 14 assists, one steal and one three on 9-of-20 shooting (10-of-12 FTs), and Steven Adams waltzed to 14 & 8 with three assists, two steals and a block in the win.
January 21, 2019, 3:36 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George scored 31 points for the second consecutive game on Monday, going 9-of-18 from the field and 9-of-9 from the charity stripe along with four rebounds, four assists, four 3-pointers and a steal.
An easy day for PG as the Thunder were up comfortably after about eight minutes of action and never looked back. Jerami Grant, who has sneakily become another of OKC's consistent fantasy options, added 16 points, six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer. There's never a reason to remove either player here from fantasy lineups.
January 19, 2019, 6:44 pmPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George posted 31 points, six boards, five assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in Saturday's win against the Sixers.
George had a four-point play with five seconds to go when the Thunder were down two that ended up as the game-winner. His 8-for-20 from the field was a tad low, but he was 4-for-9 from beyond the arc and 11-for-11 from the free throw line. George continues to be the best player on the Thunder in the best year of his career so far.
January 18, 2019, 1:00 amPaul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Paul George had another excellent game in Thursday's 128-138 loss, posting 27 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals and five 3-pointers.
George continues to cook this season and it certainly looks like he'll finish as a first-round fantasy asset. It's not often that you can spin a nice profit at the turn of round one but PG is pulling it off for his lucky fantasy owners. Even with his shooting numbers looking likely to regress somewhat, it'd take a major collapse to topple George at this point.
Adrian and Neil break down the four games from Tuesday. Paul George has the best line of the night. Lillard, Towns, and Westbrook also put up monster lines. DeAndre Jordan has a revenge game against…
