Carmelo Anthony shot 11-of-28 from the field for 28 points in a win at Boston on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He was spotting up for jumpers for most of the game with 18 of his 28 attempts coming from beyond 10 feet. Melo hasn't been too effective at scoring around the hoop this year, shooting just 52 percent on shots from within three feet -- the league average is 64 percent. On the other hand, he's third in the league in points per game and is producing big numbers in his first full season with Mike Woodson.

Nikola Jokic, who started the season off by hitting 3-of-13 shots and scoring a total of seven points in his first two games, broke out against the Wizards on Monday by hitting 9-of-14 shots for 29 points, nine rebounds, five assists, a steal and three 3-pointers.

Whew. Owners were squirming, wondering if they burned a first-round pick on a dud, but it was only a matter of time before this would happen. Jokic is easily one of the best centers in fantasy and should continue to build on tonight's performance, although a block would have been nice. Hopefully you didn't do anything crazy with him before tonight's breakout.

Danny Green had a monster night vs. Toronto on Monday with 17 points, eight rebounds, three 3-pointers and five blocks in 34 minutes.

The five blocks matched his career-high. Green was a headache to own in the previous two seasons, but he was a top-24 player in 2014 with several nights like this. He's balling right now with averages of 14.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.0 steals, 2.3 blocks and 2.3 triples, but we all know he's just as likely to score 20 as he is finishing scoreless. Ride him while he's hot, but expect a dip in production when Kawhi Leonard (quad) eventually returns.

Dejounte Murray had one of the best games of his NBA career in Monday's 101-97 win over the Raptors, scoring 16 points with 15 rebounds and six assists in 28 minutes.

He tied the franchise record for boards by a guard and is just the second guard in Spurs history with 15+ points and 15+ rebounds in a game -- Manu Ginobili had 34 points and 15 rebounds back in 2008. Murray finished 6-of-12 from the field and 4-of-6 from the line and it's easy to see why the Spurs believe he's the PG of the future. San Antonio has no need to rush Tony Parker (quad) back with Murray playing like this.
Oct 23 - 11:47 PM

Eric Gordon scored a season-high 27 points in Monday's loss to Memphis, adding seven assists, four rebounds and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

Gordon also played a handful of minutes at point guard in relief of James Harden, and considering how well he did tonight, we may see more of that going forward until Chris Paul (knee) returns in a few weeks. Gordon hit 8-of-20 shots and 6-of-7 from the line, and he's off to a hot start to the season with 23.5 points and 2.5 triples per game. He's a must-start player until further notice.
Oct 23 - 11:36 PM

Dennis Smith Jr. returned from his knee injury and hit 3-of-11 shots and just 4-of-10 free throws for 10 points, six rebounds, one assist and two steals in 30 minutes.

He also missed both his 3-pointers, but the good news is he played after sitting out a couple games. He struggled tonight, and the six missed FTs are certainly a concern, but he still has a solid handle on the starting point guard job, so don't let this game bring you down. He also tried to dunk on Draymond Green while talking trash, to which Green replied "That s--- ain't happening."
Oct 23 - 11:22 PM

Marc Gasol scored 26 points in Monday's 98-90 win over Houston, hitting 8-of-15 shots and 10-of-10 free throws.

Gasol also grabbed five rebounds with two assists and two blocks, and the only bad news is that he missed all three of his 3-point attempts -- he hit four triples in his previous two games. Gasol was concerned about Memphis' ability to compete in the West prior to the season, but he finds himself on top of the standings with a 3-0 record. Gasol is locked in as a top-10 fantasy center until further notice.
Oct 23 - 11:08 PM

Josh Richardson did a little bit of everything against the Hawks on Monday, scoring 21 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

We're going to see a lot of these lines because Richardson does so many things. He ran the point tonight more than usual in this game, and his blocks weren't cheap ones on a John Collins dunk attempt and another on Taurean Prince. He is sitting at 37 minutes per game, he wants to lead all wings in blocks, he can get hot in a hurry and he's playing three positions, so he checks all the boxes as a must-own breakout candidate.
Oct 23 - 11:03 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo stayed hot on Monday with 32 points, 14 rebounds, six assists, a steal, two blocks and six turnovers on 13-of-21 shooting.

He's now averaging 36.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 2.3 steals, 1.3 blocks and a true shooting percentage of 69.6 percent. If you took him with the No. 1 pick in fantasy this season, you're loving life. And if he somehow fell to you at No. 4 or 5, you got a steal.
Oct 23 - 10:56 PM

Taurean Prince matched his career-high 20 points with seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, seven turnovers and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Heat during a 104-93 loss on Monday.

It's a season high in minutes, usage, steals, and a career high in turnovers. Prince is going to get more involved in the offense and the Hawks will need him to produce in transition due to their lack of a go-to scorer. He figures to feast without Dennis Schroder (ankle) this week, so the must-own player gets a little short-term boost.
Oct 23 - 10:53 PM

John Collins scored 14 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and one block in 18 minutes against the Heat on Monday.

He continues to be one of the highest motor players in the NBA and is always looking to set a high ball screen on the offensive end. Collins played all power forward minutes on Sunday, but he was able to get a good amount of minutes at both big spots for this game. With Ersan Ilyasova (knee) banged up and the Hawks slipping in the standings, Collins should be owned in all standard leagues.
Oct 23 - 10:14 PM

Joel Embiid returned from a day of rest and led the 76ers to their first win of the season on Monday vs. Detroit, dropping 30 points in 28 minutes.

He'll probably be capped at 28 minutes for a little while longer, but at least the 76ers don't have another back-to-back set until Nov. 29 and Nov. 30. He toasted Andre Drummond tonight, hitting 11-of-15 shots and 7-of-8 free throws with nine rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer and seven turnovers. He'll need to take better care of the ball, but his owners won't care with lines like these.
