J.J. Barea- He’s getting the job done for deep-league owners because Dallas is using so many Two-PG lineups. Seth Curry’s (leg) return could ruin him, though. 

 
Salah Mejri- As long as he can hold off Nerlens Noel, Mejri will have some value as a blocks and boards specialist. Find someone who loves you like Rick Carlisle loves Mejri. 
 
Patty Mills- He scored 19 points with four triples and four steals in arguably his best game of the season. I’d like him a lot better, but Tony Parker (quad) could be back in late November. 
 
Kyle Anderson- Who would’ve thought that he’d be getting more burn than Rudy Gay. Anderson will continue to be a sneaky source of fantasy value with Kawhi Leonard’s timetable still up in the air. 
 
OG Anunoby- The Raptors love him and it’s easy to see why. They trusted him enough to guard James Harden and he also had an awesome game on offense, dropping 16 points with three 3-pointers in 30 minutes. He could have some value with Norman Powell sidelined. 
 
C.J. Miles- Like he’s been for most of his career, Miles can be viewed as a boom-or-bust fantasy option. 19 points in 17 minutes with six(!) 3-pointers. 
 
Delon Wright- If you own Kyle Lowry- handcuffing him with Delon Wright is wise. Had one of the best games of his NBA career, scoring 14 points with two rebounds, two assists and one steal. 
 
Tarik Black- Might have some low-end value in very deep leagues while Nene (foot) is out. Two solid games in a row, but not many minutes. 
 
Joe Harris- He gets a bump with D’Angelo Russell out, but he’s merely a 3-point specialist. 
 
Marcus Morris- His 21-10 game was likely a fluke, but put him on your watch list in case he does this again. 
 
Trevor Booker- He had 12 points and eight rebounds with supporting stats, and I’d be surprised if the Nets went back to Timofey Mozgov
 
Spencer Dinwiddie- For me, Dinwiddie is the pickup of the night. We don’t know how long Russell will be out, and Dinwiddie had a great game in the starting lineup with 12 points, 11 assists and four rebounds in 34 minutes. 
 
Caris LeVert- He ran some point for the second unit and finally found his shot, scoring 15 points in 22 minutes.
