February 14, 2019, 12:51 amWillie Cauley-Stein - C - Sacramento Kings
Willie Cauley-Stein scored eight points on 3-of-5 shooting with seven rebounds, three assists and five steals in Wednesday's road loss to the Nuggets.
Cauley-Stein is as inconsistent as they get but it all averages out to a late-round value. De'Aaron Fox added 15 points and 10 assists, and Buddy Hield put up 25 points with a mostly normal line in the loss.
February 14, 2019, 12:50 amNemanja Bjelica - F - Sacramento Kings
Nemanja Bjelica scored 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds, three assists and one steal over 20 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets.
If Bjelica is engaged in the game and not getting crushed out there, he can put up stats in spurts. If all goes well he's a late-round value the rest of the way, and there's easily a chance he gets marginalized as the season concludes.
February 14, 2019, 12:48 amHarrison Barnes - F - Sacramento Kings
Harrison Barnes scored 19 points on 7-of-19 shooting (including three treys) with 11 rebounds, four assists and two steals over 41 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets.
This isn't what you wanted to see if you're a Kings fan, popcorn numbers aside. He probably has a late-round floor but will be inconsistent from night to night as the Kings don't really have a game plan offensively, but rather they just go with the flow and whatever happens happens.
February 14, 2019, 12:46 amMarvin Bagley III - F - Sacramento Kings
Marvin Bagley struggled in Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets, scoring 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes off the bench.
Bagley got worked over inside by the bigger Nuggets frontcourt and got benched in crunch time. He's still trying to do a bit too much and he might be skipping a few rookie steps, but he'll probably be a late-round guy however the cards fall with the reality basketball stuff.
February 14, 2019, 12:44 amBogdan Bogdanovic - G - Sacramento Kings
Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 16 points off the bench in Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets, hitting 5-of-13 shots (1-of-5 3PTs, 5-of-5 FTs) with four rebounds, two assists and one block in 27 minutes.
Bogdanovic has been slowly getting out of his slump as he takes a hit in value with Harrison Barnes on the scene and Marvin Bagley trying to establish himself as a No. 1 scorer. He's still a must-own player in 12-team standard leagues.
February 11, 2019, 3:52 pmBen McLemore - G - Sacramento Kings
CBA complications prevented Ben McLemore from signing his rumored 10-day deal with the Raptors over the weekend, and Josh Lewenberg of TSN is reporting that that agreement may have fallen through.
McLemore was going to help Toronto meet the NBA's roster requirements since they were down to 10 guys after the trade deadline, but they've since added Malcolm Miller and Chris Boucher with Jeremy Lin soon to follow. McLemore will hope to latch on elsewhere.

February 10, 2019, 9:37 pmWillie Cauley-Stein - C - Sacramento Kings
Willie Cauley-Stein came to ball on Sunday against the Suns with a season-high five blocks, 10 points, eight boards, two assists and one steal.
Cauley-Stein has been overshadowed by Marvin Bagley lately but is doing his job to get himself a nice big contract this summer. If the blocks become a part of every game for WCS his value would solidify within the top-100 in 8-cat leagues.
February 10, 2019, 9:06 pmBuddy Hield - G - Sacramento Kings
Buddy Hield had a solid game on Sunday against the Suns with 18 points. three triples, six boards, a steal and a block.
Buddy Buckets will be at All-Star Weekend to participate in the Three-Point Contest. His sharp shooting was on display tonight as his timely shots kept the Suns at bay in the second half. Buddy is a top-50 asset and will continue to have every opportunity to lead the Kings to the postseason.
February 10, 2019, 9:03 pmDe'Aaron Fox - G - Sacramento Kings
De'Aaron Fox handed out nine assists on Sunday vs. the Suns while adding 17 points, six boards, two steals and two triples.
Fox is one of many deserving Most Improved Player candidates as he's blown up this season with top-50 production after being outside of the top-200 as a rookie in 8-cat leagues. He'll be at All-Star Weekend this season but for the lesser festivities on Friday and Saturday.
February 10, 2019, 8:46 pmBogdan Bogdanovic - G - Sacramento Kings
Bogdan Bogdanovic swiped three steals with 14 points, five boards, five assists and a block on Sunday against the Suns.
Bogdan is still coming off the bench after the trades of Justin Jackson and Iman Shumpert and producing just outside of the top-100. He’s one of the Kings’ best players and produces as a starter or bench guy.
February 10, 2019, 8:41 pmMarvin Bagley III - F - Sacramento Kings
Marvin Bagley played well in his homecoming to Phoenix, where he grew up, dropping a career-high 32 points with seven boards, a triple, a steal, a block and an assist on 10-of-15 shooting in the 117-104 win on Sunday.
The second overall pick is coming on strong, following up his previous career-high game just five days ago. The Kings have a favorable playoff schedule so feel free to send out a solid offer for Bagley who is outside the top-150 on the season but has a path to top-120 production as the Kings push for a playoff berth.
February 9, 2019, 1:36 pmBen McLemore - G - Sacramento Kings
Ben McLemore is expected to sign a 10-day contract with the Raptors after he clears waivers.
The Raptors need to fill out their bench as they now have five empty roster spots after the trade deadline. McLemore could be a decent end of the bench piece for them but don't expect him him to be picked up in any fantasy leagues.

February 9, 2019, 1:21 amWillie Cauley-Stein - C - Sacramento Kings
Willie-Cauley Stein had a tough matchup against Hassan Whiteside in a 102-96 win over the Heat on Friday, but still managed to produce seven points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks.
WCS has been outside the top-200 in 9-cat over the last couple of weeks. He's been too inconsistent to be trusted in most leagues this season and his combined four steals and blocks tonight are the exception and not the rule for Trill. He's a low-end big who can be useful for rebounds given the Kings' favorable fantasy playoff schedule.
