Ersan Ilyasova hit just 2-of-7 shots for four points with one rebound and one steal in 17 minutes on Wednesday.

At this point, no owner should feel bad about dropping him, obviously, as he is a lead candidate for bust of the year. We've talked about his upside until we've turned blue in the face, and even the most patient of us over here only have a few more weeks in which we'll stash him in the appropriate formats.

Wes Matthews scored a season-high 22 points with two rebounds, eight assists, two steals and six 3-pointers against the Bucks on Saturday.

His eight dimes were also a season high, and that has been a trend this month with 3.8 per game -- he averaged a career-high 2.9 per game last season. Matthews is still ice cold inside the arc and his steals are down to just 0.9 in November. He's still getting a good amount of shots and chances are you weren't counting on him for FG%, so he should be owned in standard leagues.

The Bucks' four-game win streak was snapped on Saturday, despite Giannis Antetokounmpo's career-high 17 rebounds, with 24 points, three steals, two assists and one 3-pointer.

Antetokounmpo came in averaging a league-high 30.6 points per game, and his stellar 57.8% from the field was second only to LeBron James among non-centers. He made just 7-of-20 FGs and 9-of-13 FTs tonight, but fantasy owners still benefited from his steals and career-best work on the glass. He's simply ridiculous.

Stephen Curry scored 35 points with five rebounds, five assists, one block and four 3-pointers during a 124-116 win over the 76ers on Saturday.

It's not often you seen Steph have multiple-game slumps, and he bounced back quickly from his nine-point dud in Boston on Thursday. The Warriors were hit in the mouth in the first quarter as they gave up 47 points in that frame, but were still able to overcome a 22-point deficit at half. They put up 47 of their own in the third and this game became the seventh time in the Shot Clock Era that two teams both scored at least 47 points in a quarter in the same game. Curry was a big part of that with his 20 points in that quarter to get to their fifth 40-point quarter on the year. Steph gets the Nets on Sunday, so he should be in for another big night.

Kevin Durant scored 27 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

He's on another one of his 20-plus scoring streaks with seven straight, but the non-scoring stuff is the most impressive part of his stat lines. In those games, Durant averaged 24.4 points, 6.1 boards, 5.1 assists, 2.0 blocks, 0.9 steals and 1.9 treys on 53.4 FG% and 94.1 FT%. KD also wanted to win this game badly, but not for the reasons you might think. "We didn't want to lose to these guys. Especially Joel [Embiid]," Durant said. "He would've went straight to Twitter and talked [expletive]." We'll have to wait until next year to see what The Process has for the Warriors. Until then, KD is in the mix to be fantasy's top player.

Ben Simmons made 11-of-15 from the field for 23 points with eight rebounds, 12 assists and one steal during a 124-116 loss to the Warriors on Saturday.

The 76ers were incredible in the first quarter with 47 points, but the Warriors returned the favor and then some with a 47-15 edge in the third. Not even the Warriors could limit Simmons because of his size, and he received a lot of praise from Kevin Durant after the game. "Something I've never seen before," Durant said. "[Playing the point guard] with that height, that speed and that strength." Simmons is also like something we've never seen from a fantasy rookie. He has Rookie of the Year in the bag as long as he plays 60 games.

Patrick Beverley (knee) is targeting a return to the lineup on Monday to face the Knicks.

This makes a lot of sense after we saw him put in a good workout before today's game. Beverley seems to be up to speed for the most part and the Clippers missed him badly due their current NBA-high eight game losing streak. Sindarius Thornwell, Juwan Evans, Lou Williams and Austin Rivers should lose some value. Beverley needs to be added in all standard leagues.
Nov 18 - 11:03 PM

John Collins looked great in 25 minutes off the bench vs. Boston, hitting 7-of-8 shots to finish with 18 points, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal.

The rookie's energy is palpable when you watch the Hawks, and he even hit 4-of-4 free throws tonight. Collins somehow failed to get to the line in his previous four games, a span of 93 minutes, but at least we know he won't be a liability when he gets there. He's providing late-round value and should only get better throughout the season, so don't hesitate to grab him.
Nov 18 - 10:42 PM

Jaylen Brown sank 10-of-13 field goals to finish Saturday's road win with a career-high 27 points, four rebounds, four 3-pointers and one steal.

Brown committed one turnover in 35 minutes, and the four 3-pointers were one shy of his career-high. He's had at least one steal and 3-pointer in five straight games, and needs to be owned despite a glaring weakness -- he made 3-of-7 free throws tonight, lowering his season average to 60.8 percent.
Nov 18 - 10:24 PM

Rodney Hood thrived off the bench against the Magic on Saturday, scoring 31 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and seven 3-pointers in just 26 minutes.

He has the greenest of lights off the bench and came into this game with 18.0 points and 3.4 treys in his previous five games in the second unit. There are not many reliable offensive weapons off the bench, so he'll have every opportunity to score 20 per game like the Jazz were hoping for. He'll need to stay healthy, but things are looking up after a letdown in 2016-17.
Nov 18 - 10:23 PM

The Celtics won their 15th consecutive game on Saturday, led by Kyrie Irving's game-high 30 points on 10-of-12 field goals and 5-of-5 free throws.

Boston trailed by 15 points after one quarter tonight, but as usual they clawed back to improve their record to an astounding 15-2. Kyrie hit five 3-pointers with five assists, four rebounds and one block tonight, rounding out an uber-efficient game. His recent facial fracture obviously isn't bothering him, and it's important to remember that he hasn't even played 20 games with his new team -- the best is yet to come.
Nov 18 - 10:23 PM

Derrick Favors made 10-of-12 from the field and all five free throws for a season-high 25 points with 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 25 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

Besides the awesome stat line, this was probably the best Favors has looked all year. He was battling for position down low and he is establishing a nice rapport with Donovan Mitchell -- the guard threw one off the glass to feed Favors for a dunk. He is easily a beneficiary from the Rudy Gobert (knee) and things are looking up now that he looks spry again. He could be a sell-high player, but there's a good chance Favors cruises in the next month.
