Gordon Hayward lit up the Wizards for a game-high 30 points on Sunday, making 11-of-22 field goals with four 3-pointers, nine rebounds and two assists.

Hayward went just 4-of-8 at the line tonight, unusual for him, but his owners will happily overlook that small defect. He's exceeding expectations this season, averaging career-high numbers in multiple categories, and fantasy owners are reaping top-20 value over the past month.
Feb 26 - 7:48 PM

Malcolm Brogdon scored 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting Sunday, to go with seven assists, one 3-pointer, two steals and two turnovers in 24 minutes off the bench.

Brogdon helped spark a third-quarter run by the Bucks which put them in the lead, and all 15 of his points came during the second half of action. Brogdon continues to severely outplay starter Matthew Dellavedova, who missed all six of his shot attempts and finished the game with just two boards, three dimes, one steal and one turnover in 24 minutes, but with Jason Kidd at the helm, it's anyone's guess if Brogdon will ever make his way back into the starting five. He's still worth owning, though.
Feb 26 - 7:48 PM

Derrick Favors blocked four shots in 24 minutes vs. the Wizards, adding 10 points and seven rebounds in a 102-92 road victory.

Favors is looking good after getting time off during the All-Star break -- in his past two games he's averaging 14.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.0 blocks, while shooting 14-of-23 from the field. His owners' patience is finally starting to pay off, and as long as he stays healthy he should build momentum through the fantasy playoffs.
Feb 26 - 7:48 PM

Zach Randolph picked up 30 points, 11 rebounds and two assists across 26 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 105-98 win against the Nuggets.

It was Randolph's 15th double-double, all coming as a reserve. He leads the NBA in double-doubles off the bench this season. Despite a reserve role, Randolph has flourished. He is averaging 15.7 points and 9.3 rebounds per game over his past three outings. While he is no longer a 20-point, 10-rebound guy every night, he is still very productive in a majority of fantasy formats.
Feb 26 - 7:48 PM

Rudy Gobert dominated Sunday's game with a game-high 20 rebounds to go along with 15 points (2-of-5 FGs, 11-of-14 FTs), three assists, one steal and four blocks.

Gobert and his teammates turned up the defensive pressure after halftime and they finished with 11 blocks as a team. Gobert is returning steady third-round value over the past month, checking all the boxes his owners expected on draft day. He's still only 24 years old, and the best is yet to come.
Feb 26 - 7:47 PM

Michael Beasley scored 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting Sunday, to go with three rebounds, two steals, one block and four turnovers in 23 minutes off the bench.

Khris Middleton replaced Beasley in the starting five for Sunday's game, but Middleton will be rested on Monday, meaning Beasley has a good chance of returning to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Cleveland. However, Beasley doesn't do much aside from score, so he's not necessarily a "must-own" guy in standard leagues.
Feb 26 - 7:41 PM

Mike Conley posted 31 points, five assists, four rebounds and two steals with just one turnover over 35 minutes in Sunday's 105-98 road victory against the Nuggets.

Conley has 30 or more points in six outings this season after posting just five 30-plus performances over his first nine NBA seasons combined. He has three of those performances over his past 11 games, too. The Ohio State product is on pace for career highs in points per game and rebounds this season. He is also well ahead of his career average of 1.2 triples per contest, hitting 2.3 per from behind the perimeter through 48 games.
Feb 26 - 7:39 PM

Greg Monroe scored 14 points on 5-of-13 shooting Sunday, to go with eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

Over the past few weeks, Monroe has averaged 30.0 minutes a night and he’s responded with averages of 17.5 points, 9.3 boards, 2.5 dimes, 2.0 steals and 2.3 turnovers per game on 59.6 percent shooting, which has been good enough for top-25 value in standard 9-cat leagues. The sky-high shooting is probably unsustainable, and Jason Kidd has some of the most unpredictable rotations in the league, but if Monroe can continue to flirt with minutes in the 30s he could have a strong finish to the year.
