  • SAS Power Forward #10
    Sochan’s season has been a ride of highs and lows, marked by standout performances alongside less impactful outings. His recent game against the Lakers showcased his potential, with Sochan contributing 15 points, securing 13 rebounds, and recording two steals. This performance exemplifies the impact he can have when he’s at his best. Sochan’s inconsistency, however, makes him a challenging player to roster. While his capability to deliver strong performances is evident, the unpredictability of his contributions can be a dilemma for managers.
  • LAL Point Guard #1
    Russell has been showing up big, positioning himself within the top 70 in 9-category leagues. His recent performances have highlighted his scoring ability, especially from beyond the arc, where he’s been exceptional, averaging 2.7 three-pointers per game this season. In his latest game against the Spurs on Friday, he finished the night with 22 points. His ability to consistently hit three-pointers boosts his scoring totals and adds significant value to rosters needing strong perimeter shooting.
  • LAL Small Forward #28
    Hachimura’s performance against the Spurs on Friday is another testament to his growing role and effectiveness on the court. Finishing with 17 points on an efficient 7-for-11 shooting, Hachimura is making the most of his opportunities, showcasing his scoring ability and solidifying his place in the rotation. The fact that he’s logged 30 minutes or more in his last 6 games indicates a significant shift toward consistency in his playing time. As he continues to carve out a significant role within his team’s lineup, Hachimura’s stock is on the rise, making him a player to watch and potentially a valuable pickup.
  • LAL Small Forward #23
    LeBron continues to defy the odds, ranking in the top 25 in 9-cat and soaring into the top 10 in points leagues. His remarkable efficiency is evident with a 52% shooting from the field, although he faces challenges from the free-throw line, where his accuracy dips to 74%. Despite this, his contributions remain monumental, averaging 24.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 7.8 assists per game. LeBron led all scorers in Friday’s match with the Spurs dropping 30 points. At 39 years old, his performance is unprecedented, showcasing a level of productivity that seems to outpace Father Time himself.
  • LAL Power Forward #3
    Davis has been exceptional this season, solidifying his position as a top-five player in 9-cat. Notably, Davis has participated in 54 games, a significant achievement given his history with injuries. His ability to stay healthy has been crucial to his performance and value. AD’s shooting efficiency has been outstanding, with a 55 percent success rate from the field and an 81 percent accuracy from the free-throw line. These percentages are a testament to his skill and consistency as a scorer. Averaging 24.9 points per game, Davis is a dominant offensive force. However, his contributions extend far beyond scoring, as evidenced by his impressive averages of 12.2 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game. These statistics underscore his impact on both ends of the court and his ability to contribute across multiple categories. As one of the most well-rounded players in fantasy basketball, Davis offers a unique blend of scoring, rebounding, and defensive prowess. He torched the Spurs on Friday for a 27 and 12 double-double. His balanced contributions make him an invaluable asset to managers, providing a solid foundation in nearly every category.
  • POR Shooting Guard #1
    Simons, who played 36 minutes on Friday, was one of many Trail Blazers who played poorly in the team’s blowout loss to the Timberwolves before the All-Star break. He was better on Friday, shooting better than 50% from the field while committing just one turnover. Over the past three weeks, Simons has been averaging 3.0 turnovers per game, which is one reason why there has been a two-round difference in his fantasy value during this period. A 4th-round player in 8-cat formats, he’s provided 6th-round value in 9-cat. With Scoot Henderson sidelined, Simons was the lone playmaker in the starting lineup, which positively impacted his assist production. Portland hosts Charlotte on Sunday, and that could be a good matchup for Simons despite the Hornets boasting a 4-1 record since the trade deadline.
  • MIN Center #27
    Gobert came into this one with seven straight double-doubles, averaging 15.9 points, 13.4 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in that span. He kept up the strong work on the glass, pulling down a game-high rebound total and putting in work as a shot-blocker. Over the last month, Milwaukee ranks sixth in most rebounds allowed to opponents, so Gobert’s monster night shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Minnesota’s next opponent, Brooklyn, has allowed the sixth-fewest boards to opponents in that span, making Saturday’s matchup a bit more difficult for the “Stifle Tower.”
  • POR Center #2
    After having one of his worst games of the season in Portland’s final game before the All-Star break, a February 15 loss to the Timberwolves, Ayton was much better on Friday. The double-double was his 19th of the season, and the former first-overall pick has provided top 20 per-game value in 8-cat formats over the past three weeks. While Ayton can have the occasional poor night, the more significant concern for fantasy managers is a potential shutdown later in the season. We’ve seen Portland pull the plug in past seasons when the postseason was no longer a realistic objective, and Friday’s loss dropped the team’s record to 15-40.
  • SAS Power Forward #1
    Wembanyama has quickly ascended to the upper echelons of fantasy basketball, securing a top 10 ranking in 9-cat and top 15 in points leagues. His anticipated entry into next season’s fantasy drafts as a top-five pick speaks volumes about his extraordinary impact and the high expectations surrounding his performance. Wembanyama’s play has been nothing short of revolutionary, earning him the reputation of being an otherworldly talent on the court. His defensive prowess is particularly noteworthy, with Wembanyama recording multiple blocks in 14 of his last 15 games, culminating in a staggering 10-block triple-double. On Friday versus the Lakers, he kept the defensive dominance going, amassing five blocks and five steals. This level of dominance is rare, highlighting his unique ability to alter the course of games. Wemby’s blend of size, skill, and defensive acumen makes him a fantasy phenomenon, the likes of which the league has rarely, if ever, seen.
  • MIN Power Forward #32
    KAT got off to a good start Friday, securing a 12/10 double-double in the first half on the way to his best rebounding effort in quite some time. In five games before this one, the big man averaged 22.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists, hardly doing much to get fantasy managers excited. His 50-point effort in the All-Star Game didn’t translate back to the regular season, as opposing defenders didn’t let him catch the ball in space and throw it down in reverse every other possession. Towns and Co. will look to get back in the win column Saturday for the second half of a back-to-back set when the Nets come to town.
