Pickups of the Day for Tuesday

by Steve Alexander

Nemanja Bjelica – The King went off again for 19 points, five boards, five assists, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers. Seriously, he better not be available in any leagues right now.


Kent Bazemore – Had 18 points and a full stat line, and should be owned in all leagues.


Rodney McGruder – He had a ‘bad’ night with seven points, two rebounds, six assists and a 3-pointer. If someone jumps ship, pick him up.


Markelle Fultz – Off to hot start in 5-game week with 16 & 7.

Serge Ibaka – Went off for 30 points, nine boards, a block and two 3-pointers. Of course, Kawhi Leonard was out, but Ibaka should be owned everywhere.


Josh Hart – Went to bench for Lakers and was quiet, but you should grab him if a frustrated owners dumps him.


Zach Collins – Did you gamble on him for his five-game week? He got it done with 17 points, three boards, three assists, a block and a 3-pointer on 7-of-10 shooting. He still has four games left this week.


Cameron Payne- Still starting for the Bulls and had 15 points and a decent line, and is worth owning as long as Kris Dunn is out.


Marvin Bagley – He might start showing up on waiver wires with Bjelica stealing all his minutes. But I like the idea of stashing him if you have room.


Al-Farouq Aminu – Did you gamble on him for his five-game week? Nice job, as he had 11 points, 10 boards, a steal and a 3-pointer.


Ersan Ilyasova – Should be owned and played for as long as he’s starting with Giannis Antetokounmpo’s in the concussion protocol. He scored 19 with 10 boards and three 3-pointers last night.


Noah Vonleh – He started for the Knicks again, had eight points, 10 boards, a steal and a block in 29 minutes. I like him. A lot.


Frank Ntilikina – He had 16 points, five boards, four assists, a block and three 3-pointers in another start. It’s time to move on him.


Bryn Forbes – The Spur had 12 points, one assist and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes last night. He’s not killing it, but still has three games this week and is scoring nicely.


Derrick Rose – Had 11-7-7 line, but hit just 4-of-16 shots. He’s worth a look, but will struggle when Andrew Wiggins is back (soon).


Damyean Dotson – Had 10 points, five boards and a 3-pointer. Worth a deep-league look.


Evan Turner – Another Blazer with five games this week – He had 13 points, eight boards, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on 6-of-9 shooting. Congrats if you rolled the dice!


Iman Shumpert – Has three more games this week to get it going, but only had eight points and not much else tonight.


Spencer Dinwiddie – Had a big night with 17 points, three assists and two 3-pointers, but D’Angelo Russell and Caris LeVert struggled in this one.


Josh Okogie – Started again for Andrew Wiggins and had 17-4-3-3-1-1 line, but Wiggins will be back soon.


Antonio Blakeney – Went off for 21 points and four 3-pointers for the Bulls last night, but it was a garbage-time special.


Allonzo Trier – Bounced back with 12 points, five boards and two assists in 25 minutes for the Knicks. Keep an eye on him.


Dewayne Dedmon – Only had 11 points and five boards, but has been playing well for Hawks.


Nik Stauskas – He had 10 points, five assists and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes last night, and still has four games left for the Blazers.


Jonas Jerebko – Worth a look as cheap DFS flier or deep-league option, and had 10 points, five boards, two assists, a steal and two 3-pointers in 20 minutes for the Warriors last night.


Omari Spellman – Had 11 points, six boards and a 3-pointer. If you’re in a super-deep league, check him out.


Alfonzo McKinnie – The Warrior went nuts with 19 points, 10 boards, a block and four 3-pointers, but it was a blowout. If you’re in a really deep league, give him a look, as he’s played reasonably well for most of the season.
