Saturday's PUD

Cedi Osman- I’m very surprised how many leagues this guy is available in. He’s a must-own player and could have a Joe-Ingles like season with sneaky top-75 upside.
 
Terry Rozier- Quiet night in terms of points scored, but he’s filling it up in other categories and should get 25ish minutes every night. 
 
Marvin Bagley- He was dropped in a bunch of leagues after his 12-minute season opener, but hopefully his performance on Friday is an indication of what’s to come. 
 
Spencer Dinwiddie- The Nets were able to give Dinwiddie, D’Angelo Russell and Caris LeVert 30+ minutes.

Jae Crowder- I don’t know if he can sustain it because he’s been bad since he left Boston, but Crowder is averaging 15.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.0 triples through the first two games. Jazz playing more small ball definitely helps. 

 
Danny Green- Is this really happening after three years of nothing!? I’m shying away just because of my history with Green, but if you want to take a chance on him, go for it. 
 
Malik Monk- He cooled off after his awesome opener, but still played 24 minutes with 11 shot attempts. The Hornets don’t have much young talent outside of Monk/Willy/Miles and need to start looking towards the future after years of mediocrity. 
 
Boban Marjanovic- The Clippers seem like they are committed to giving him around 15 minutes, and that’s enough for him to flirt with top-100 value. His per-minute numbers are off the charts like they have always been. 
 
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander- He had an off night after an impressive opener. The minutes are still there, he’s only going to get better and Patrick Beverley has started slow and could be traded. I’m holding SGA. 
 
Fred VanVleet- He’s rosterable until Delon Wright comes back. Played 28 minutes against the Celtics, so that’s pretty telling. 
 
Jordan Clarkson- He’s going to put up a lot of popcorn stats on a really bad Cavaliers team. 
 
Joe Harris- He will probably be a top-100 guy in the short term with so many Nets out. 
 
Trey Burke- Despite the poor shooting, he has no competition for minutes with Frank Ntilikina playing off the ball. 
 
Dante Exum- He only played 18 minutes after his impressive opener, but was still productive with 13 points on 4-of-5 shots. Keep an eye on him because I think the Jazz will find a way to get him close to 25 minutes. 
 
Garrett Temple- He had a 30-point fluke on Friday, but he’s a deep-league asset as long as he’s starting. 
 
Miles Bridges- Feasted in garbage time, but still a good stash in 14-16 team leagues. 
 
Nerlens Noel- He just needs more minutes and I’m not sure if he’ll get them behind a healthy Steven Adams
 
Jerami Grant- He’s just a low-end source of blocks and hustle stats, but the minutes have been there through two games. 
 
Damian Jones- Never imagined that he’d be the center to own in Golden State, but I still think that changes soon. Jones is just a low-end big that is thriving in the Zaza Pachulia role.
