Saturday's Pickups of the Day

Updated On: October 4, 2018, 4:04 pm ET

Patrick Patterson- He's just an add in deeper leagues, and while the minutes are intriguing, the production hasn't been. He's looking at a heavy workload for at least a few months while Jared Sullinger (foot) out. 

 

Tristan Thompson- After a miserable opener, Thompson got back on track with 11 points, 10 rebounds and one block. This is what you can expect on most nights. 

 

C.J. Miles- He's so hard to trust and has some durability issues, but he's looking at a decent workload with Rodney Stuckey tweaking his hamstring on Friday. Miles had 15 points, six rebounds and two treys in 21 minutes. 

 

Sean Kilpatrick- He was hot on Friday with 18 points, five boards and four treys, but he's not going to hit 7-of-11 from the field very often. He could lose value when Randy Foye (hamstring) comes back and the Nets are also high on Joe Harris

 

Justin Hamilton- He's a nice handcuff for Brook Lopez's owners and had his second solid performance in a row on Friday with eight points, seven rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer. You could do a lot worse in 14-team leagues.

 

Jon Leuer- Garbage time was a factor, but Stan Van Gundy loves him. He finished with seven points, nine boards, two assists, two blocks and one trey in 28 minutes. 

 

Willie Reed- He's improved a ton and is the ultimate handcuff for Hassan Whiteside's owners. 

 

Cody Zeller- Roy Hibbert went down with a sore right knee and Zeller is the next man up. He finished with 10 points, three rebounds, two steals and a block.

 

Jeremy Lamb- He scored 16 points with eight rebounds, but he's had random scoring outbursts like this in the past. Just keep an eye on him. 

 

Marquese Chirss- Only 11 minutes, but he is loaded with upside. He's just a stash, but he's going to play a ton after the break. 

 

Andre Roberson- He had a fluky line of nine points, 11 rebounds, five steals, one block and one trey, but I'm more excited about the 40 minutes. Decent low-end pickup in 14-team leagues to see what happens. 

 

Lou Williams- He played down the stretch over Jordan Clarkson and had 17 points, six assists and three treys in 27 minutes. 

 

Zaza Pachulia- He had a double-double in 17 minutes, but his workload will be capped in the lower 20s. Not a great add unless you're desperate for a big. 

 

Terrence Jones- Anthony Davis has played more than 40 minutes in two straight games. What could possibly go wrong?
