How crazy was the Magic vs. Thunder game? The Victor Oladipo triple-double wasn't even the coolest thing about that game. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook dropped 91 together. What?? There was a lot more to like from this one.

 

Rodney Hood - All good in the hood.

 

Marcus Morris - You have to find a way to add Morris.

 

Aaron Gordon - The guy plays 18 minutes and puts up 15 points, three boards, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer. That's easy must-own to me. He'll play more.

 

Alec Burks - Very tidy 15 points with seven boards, one steal and one 3-pointer on 6-of-8. It's vs. Philly, though. 

 

Marcus Smart - He can't shoot, but that should come. He's safe in the rotation, I think anyway.

 

Marvin Williams - 2011-2014 would laugh at putting him this high, but he looks great.

 

Willie Cauley-Stein - Too Thrill. We'll see how he does against a non-Lakers team.

 

Jeremy Lin - I can dig it and he looks good as a shooting guard.

 

Nik Stauskas - I'm addicted to upside and Sauce has so, so much of it.

 

Dennis Schroder - I wouldn't call him a pickup from Friday and I think he'll be up and down.

 

T.J. Warren - He has a trey in each game. Hmm.

 

Steven Adams - Billy Donovan is a little wild, but he likes Adams.

 

Festus Ezeli and Andre Iguodala - Only have short-term value.

 

Jae Crowder - I just can't trust Brad Stevens.

 

Nemanja Bjelica - Loving the 26 minutes and playing down the stretch on Wednesday.

 

Taj Gibson - He is making the most of his minutes.

 

Evan Fournier - He scored 22, but he'll have a tough time keeping Gordon and Mario Hezonja at bay.

 

Montrezl Harrell - He is in the rotation already.

 

Will Barton - The Thrill saw 30 minutes.

 

Tristan Thompson - He's coming for Mozzy's minutes, but TT is not a great fantasy guy.

 

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson - He's on the map, but low upside.

 

Anthony Tolliver - He played 30 minutes. It sucks.

 

Dion Waiters - He's playing down the stretch, but no.

 

Reggie Bullock - He was not good. PLEASE play Stanley Johnson at the 2, SVG. You can probably cut SJ in standards, by the way.
