Hey Hoop-Ballers! Welcome back to a very special dynasty edition of Deep League Digging – my weekly column scouring the darkest reaches of the fantasy NBA landscape in search of diamonds in the rough for…
March 22, 2019, 5:35 pmStephen Curry - G - Golden State Warriors
Steph Curry (rest) will not play on Saturday vs. the Mavs.
This is the front end of a back-to-back so we’re not surprised Curry is getting a day off in this five-game week. He should be out there for Sunday’s game. With Shaun Livingston and Andrew Bogut also out for rest, Quinn Cook and Andre Iguodala will get more run, though neither is a long-term play.
November 25, 2018, 1:14 amQuinn Cook - G - Golden State Warriors
Quinn Cook scored six points on 2-of-11 shooting (2-of-6 from deep) with six rebounds, five assists and one block over 29 minutes in Saturday's win over the Kings.
Stephen Curry sounds likely to play at some point during the Warriors' road trip so Cook is probably looking at about 2-4 more games of value. He's had some poppy lines but has been just a low-end play in 12-team standard formats while Steph has been out.
November 24, 2018, 4:26 amQuinn Cook - G - Golden State Warriors
Quinn Cook scored 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting with five treys, five boards and two assists over 30 minutes in another start for Steph Curry (groin) on Friday against the Blazers.
Cook's value ends when Curry returns and that seems to be sooner rather than later based on the tenor of the local reporting.
November 22, 2018, 1:54 amQuinn Cook - G - Golden State Warriors
Quinn Cook scored seven points on 3-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, six assists, one steal and one three over 33 minutes in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Thunder.
Cook's owners were hoping for more during this stretch but he's still starting and getting a bunch of minutes so until Stephen Curry (groin) returns he should be in most lineups. Andre Iguodala was also quiet with six points and three assists in 26 minutes and he can be looked at in very deep formats.
November 18, 2018, 9:45 pmQuinn Cook - G - Golden State Warriors
Quinn Cook managed 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting in 28 minutes in a loss to the Spurs on Sunday.
He came off the bench again and outplayed the starter, Andre Iguodala, who only had four points in 26 minutes. Cook added eight rebounds, two assists and a steal to the box score. He is still a great pickup and start while Steph Curry is sidelined, but his value vanishes once Curry returns to action.
November 18, 2018, 12:09 amQuinn Cook - G - Golden State Warriors
Quinn Cook logged 22 minutes on Saturday night, posting 15 points with three triples, three assists and a steal in a loss to the Mavs.
Cook came off the bench with Andre Iguodala (8-5-4 in 28 minutes) starting at point guard. He's been a bit of a disappointment in Golden State's five-game week so far, but he should still be owned in all 12-team leagues with no firm timetable set for Steph Curry's return. Shaun Livingston might hold some appeal in deeper leagues with 12 points, four rebounds and four assists in 20 minutes tonight.
November 14, 2018, 1:11 amQuinn Cook - G - Golden State Warriors
Quinn Cook scored 18 points on 8-of-18 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds and six assists in another start for Stephen Curry (groin) on Tuesday against the Hawks.
Cook should be rated at least as a late-round asset while Curry is out but he has easy mid-round upside. He's 1-for-2 putting up good lines and it's anybody's guess if he'll get another shot on Thursday against the Rockets.
November 13, 2018, 1:19 amQuinn Cook - G - Golden State Warriors
Quinn Cook started for injured Stephen Curry (groin) in Monday's overtime loss to the Clippers, scoring seven points on 3-of-7 shooting with one rebound, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes.
Cook's owners were hoping for a lot more and he'll get another chance on Tuesday against the Hawks, where Trae Young's defense is ready to be exposed. He's a must-start player in any game that he's starting for Curry based on past performance.
November 10, 2018, 11:22 pmQuinn Cook - G - Golden State Warriors
Quinn Cook stepped up big time for the Warriors on Saturday and helped starters Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson dispatch with the Nets as he chipped in 27 points, three boards, five assists, three triples and one steal.
Cook has established himself as a solid go-to pick-up last season when Curry missed time and this big game was just a friendly reminder. He shot a blistering .688 from the field on 11-of-16 shooting and is a must-own guy while Curry remains on the sidelines.
November 2, 2018, 8:52 pmShaun Livingston - G - Golden State Warriors
Shaun Livingston (right foot soreness) will not play on Friday vs. the Wolves and remains day-to-day.
The Warriors will continue to give Quinn Cook minutes at backup point guard as long as Livingston is out, but neither is an option for standard formats.
