Tristan Thompson double-doubled on Friday with 10 points on 5-of-14 shooting and 15 boards in 32 minutes.
Thompson is a double-double machine and should hover around the top-100 all season. He doesn't have much upside but is still a must-own player.

Tristan Thompson collected another double-double on Wednesday night with 14 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Thompson is sitting just outside the top-100 currently. However with his scoring efficiency and threat to double-double on any given night, it wouldn't be surprising to see him back inside that mark again soon.

Tristan Thompson scored 18 points on 9-of-14 shooting with eight rebounds and three assists on Monday.
Thompson had a very average night, scoring on high efficiency with some boards and not much else. He's a top-100 player still.

Tristan Thompson just missed a double-double with 12 points and nine rebounds in 27 minutes on Saturday.
Thompson bounced back after putting up only two points with seven rebounds on Thursday. Thompson is a standard-league player as a double-double threat every night and should be given some leash if he has cold stretches.

Tristan Thompson scored two points with seven boards, two assists and a block in 26 minutes of action on Thursday.
Thompson only logged 26 minutes in an OT game and that's mainly due to Larry Nance (zero points, 11 rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes) getting some extra burn. Nance is still a waiver wire guy and Thompson remains a strong hold.

Tristan Thompson was the only player on the Cavs that showed up on Monday, scoring 17 points on 8-of-11 shooting with 11 boards and an assist.
The rest of the team succumbed to the blowout nature of this game and put up awful lines, but Thompson survived. Surprisingly, he's been the best Cavs player in fantasy throughout the year, posting top-75 value in 9-cat leagues.

Tristan Thompson scored 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting to go with three rebounds and four assists in 22 minutes on Saturday.
This game was a blowout from the beginning which hurt Thompson's playing time. Thompson is still a top-75 player on the season averaging 13.6 points and 10.0 rebounds. Expect him to remain within the top-100 for the foreseeable future.

Tristan Thompson is questionable to take the floor for Friday's game against the Magic due to an illness.
The illness is making its way through the Cavs' locker room as Kevin Love is already out for this one. If Thompson can take the floor he will be in for a big DFS night with Love out.

Kevin Love (illness) will sit out Friday's game vs. the Magic.
With Kevin Love out Tristan Thompson would be line for a big night, but he is also questionable for this one. That could mean Larry Nance or Ante Zizic emerge with larger roles tonight.

Tristan Thompson is officially listed as probable ahead of Friday's game against the Magic.
Thompson has been averaging a double-double through the first 20 games of this season and there is no reason to believe that this trend won't continue. So far this year, Thompson is inside the top 100 in per-game value for both 8 and 9 cat leagues.

Tristan Thompson double-doubled with 10 points (4-of-11 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), 14 rebounds and a block in 30 minutes in a blowout loss to Pistons on Tuesday.
After averaging a double-double last season out of nowhere, Thompson is doing it again with more points and triple the blocks. On a rebuilding team, a veteran with an injury history like Thompson isn't the safest bet to keep putting up these numbers all season, but he's a solid top-100 center until something happens.

The Cavaliers have loved what they have seen out of Tristan Thompson so far this season, and while there is internal support for keeping him around long-term, the two sides have yet to have a real discussion on a contract extension.
Thompson has looked absolutely rejuvenated in his contract year, sporting career-high averages of 14.1 points. 10.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per contest. He has been as important as any player to the Cavs' relative success so far and it makes sense that Cleveland would like to keep a stable veteran in their organization as they continue their rebuild. It also makes sense, however, to look to sell him high as he could fetch some genuinely helpful assets in a deal that would send him to a teetering contender in need of his capable interior presence. The Cavs will have a difficult decision to make with him once the trade-deadline rolls around, making him an intriguing guy to monitor once we get to February.

Larry Nance Jr. was efficient off the bench, hitting 7-of-8 shots for 18 points and adding nine rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes on Friday vs. the Bucks.
Nance had some huge games recently as a starter, but this was a great one with the second unit. Since November 3rd, Nance hasn't shot under 50 percent from the field in any game. Tristan Thompson kept chugging along with yet another double-double, this time producing 11 points and 13 boards in 31 minutes.
November 25, 2019, 10:22 pmLarry Nance Jr.PF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Larry Nance Jr. made the most of the absence of Kevin Love (back) and erupted for a season-high 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting, along with 13 rebounds, two dimes, two treys, one steal and on block.
Nance has managed to shake off a slow start and is showing why he's a fantasy darling, now that he's being given the minutes to strut his stuff. The hot starts of both Love and Tristan Thompson (seven points, 10 rebounds, two assists, two blocks) have now simmered down, so expect Nance to, in turn, be the one to heat up.
