Navigate the ebbds and flows of the deep league landscape to find which hot streaks will stick and which ones will fizzle

Shaquille Harrison delivered seven points, four rebounds, six assists and five steals in 27 minutes off the bench on Saturday.
Harrison went 1-for-7 from the field and capitalized on some sloppy play from Toronto's G-League group tonight but it's hard to argue with the stat line for a guy who's probably available in just about every league out there. Cameron Payne wasn't impressive and Ryan Arcidiacono was quiet in 31 minutes of another start (six points, three assists, two threes), so perhaps Shaq will get a chance to start at some point this year. He's only a name to know for extremely deep leagues.

Shaquille Harrison went big in the Bulls' blowout loss to the Celtics on Wednesday, hitting 7-of-10 shots for 16 points, six rebounds, one assist and four steals in 23 minutes off the bench.
Harrison tends to produce when given the minutes but there's nowhere near enough meat to the bone for fantasy owners to take the plunge outside of 30-deep formats.

Recently waived Shaquille Harrison is expected to sign with the Bulls according to Shams Charania.
Harrison will provide depth but will need a few injuries before he's on the fantasy radar.

The Suns announced that they waived Shaquille Harrison on Monday.
With Devin Booker set to start the year as the lead guard in Pheonix the Suns took the initiative to waive Harrison and sign Jamal Crawford. Harrison should not be on anyone's radar so don't worry about it too much.

Shaquille Harrison finished Wednesday's exhibition win with 11 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, a whopping four blocks and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes of action.
It sure looks like Harrison will start at point guard for the Suns on opening night unless they pull the trigger on a trade for a veteran. De'Anthony Melton made his preseason debut tonight but played 11 minutes with two points, one rebound, one assist and one steal while Elie Okobo, who was running with the starters in recent practices, played just 13 minutes with two points and one assist. As of right now Harrison is the late-round target but this situation could become a headache in short order.

Suns beat reporter Gina Mizell said the Suns' plan has been to rotate 2-3 point guards per game during the preseason.
Mizell added she expects to see Isaiah Canaan and De'Anthony Melton get some minutes on Sunday. If your draft happens before we have a chance to see this situation shake out then Shaq Harrison is your best bet to start for the Suns opening night. He averaged 1.1 steals per game in limited minutes as a backup so there is some nice steal upside if he can play at least 25 minutes per game. Take the 24-year-old as a flier towards the end of your draft. This is a very fluid situation however, and will need to be closely monitored.

Shaq Harrison started against the Kings on Monday and scored nine points on 3-of-7 shooting with two steals and a block.
Harrison committed six turnovers and played the same amount of minutes as Elie Okobo (24 minutes, eight points, five rebounds, three assists). De'Anthony Melton was a DNP-CD tonight which is a bit odd considering how well he played for the Rockets in Summer League. The Suns have no clear answer at the point guard slot so it'll be interesting to see how the minutes are distributed throughout the preseason.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said that the Suns are hoping Shaquille Harrison "could take a bigger role at point guard this season."
The trade of Brandon Knight means there's no clear starter on the depth chart, and aside from Harrison it's rookies Elie Okobo and De'Anthony Melton and Isaiah Canaan, who is coming off a devastating injury. If we're handicapping the race right now then Harrison is the best fantasy flier with Okobo second and likely to increase his workload as the season wears on. Woj later tweeted that the Suns will continue to look for starting-caliber point guards on the trade market but for now Harrison is the Suns PG you'll want to be eyeing in fantasy.

Shaquille Harrison led the Suns with 17 points and added eight rebounds and six assists, while Davon Reed added 16 points and five boards on Thursday.
Harrison and Reed are both trapped behind the newly-paid Devin Booker in the guard rotation for the Suns. There's a chance either of them could have some deep-league appeal if things go awry, but for the time being they're just mainly fun Summer League players to keep an eye on.

Shaquille Harrison established a new career-high with 18 points in 36 minutes on Tuesday night, ending his season with collecting his first double-double by adding 10 assists.
Harrison also pitched in four rebounds and two threes in an 8-for-11 shooting performance. He was the final random Phoenix guard of the season and seemed to do a better job than most for fantasy purposes. Shaq also saw a new career-high with 36 minutes tonight, and he was able to deliver top-250 value on a per-game basis in his short NBA stint. That was buoyed by 1.1 steals per game, and Harrison had three separate four-steal performances and multiple swipes in seven of his 23 games. We'll see if the Suns keep him around for next season.

Shaquille Harrison logged 30 minutes on Friday night and ended up with 13 points, four rebounds, five assists and two steals in the Suns’ 122-103 loss to the Pelicans.
With Elfrid Payton out yet again, it’s a perfect opportunity for Tyler Ulis to show that he belongs in the Suns’ rotation but Ulis hasn’t been able to outplay point guard teammates all season long. First, it was Mike James. Then, Payton comes along and steals the show and easily obtains the starting job. Now, Harrison is playing just as well as Ulis in Payton’s absence. Ulis got the start and finished with 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals. But he also finished a game-low minus-28. If Harrison can lock down a roster spot this summer, watch out for the battle for backup point guard in Phoenix.
April 6, 2018, 8:50 pmElfrid PaytonPG, Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker (hand), T.J. Warren (knee), Elfrid Payton (knee) and Troy Daniels (ankle) will all miss Friday’s game vs. the Pelicans.
Tyler Ulis will get the start and has been playing well recently, as has Marquese Chriss. Both, however, are a little risky to use as Phoenix is extremely shorthanded and if they get blown out early, coach Triano might empty the bench to get guys like Alan Williams and Shaquille Harrison more run.

Danuel House Jr. scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting with two treys, six boards and five assists in 28 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's win over the Kings.
House has logged 25 or more minutes in each of his last three games and in his last two he's averaging 15.0 points, 1.5 treys, 6.0 boards, 4.0 assists and 1.0 blocks. With Troy Daniels (ankle) getting knocked out of tonight's game it's feasible he's in that ballpark of production so give him a look. Shaquille Harrison (10 points, two steals, one block, 23 minutes) is worth a look in very deep leagues, too.
April 3, 2018, 2:22 pmDevin BookerPG, Phoenix Suns
T.J. Warren, Elfrid Payton, Alex Len and Devin Booker will all likely sit out against the Kings on Tuesday.
The Suns are really wanting to lose this game against the Kings and will bench four out of five starters to do so. Josh Jackson should have major usage tonight as will Tyler Ulis, Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender in that order. Alan Williams and Shaq Harrison also make for cheap DFS plays off the bench.
