Gian Clavell scored nine points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

Garbage time did help him out, but Clavell is in the rotation as the Mavs try to get over the Dennis Smith Jr. (knee) injury. He is only worth a look in ridiculously deep leagues unless DSJ is out for several games.

Kevin Durant posted 29 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, three blocks, one steal and four 3-pointers on Saturday, before being ejected for arguing with the refs.

Durant was coming to the defense of teammate Steph Curry, who had just been tossed for throwing his mouthpiece, but there's no reason to think he'll face further punishment. This was his first double-double of the season and he's cruising along with the elite value his owners expected on draft day -- it must be noted that he has a stunning 14 blocks through three games.

Reggie Jackson scored 16 points and dished out a game-high seven assists in 26 minutes on Saturday in a 111-107 win over the Knicks.

Jackson struggled with his shot (4-of-12 from the floor) but knocked down all seven of his free throws. R-Jax is averaging a solid 16.6 points and 6.6 assists per game through the Pistons first three contests. Even more encouraging is the fact that he's been able to avoid any injury setbacks. If he can somehow stay healthy all season, Jackson has a chance to finish the year ranked in the top-100 overall.

David West was active in nine minutes vs. Memphis on Saturday, scoring four points with six rebounds, three assists and two steals.

West is looking to double-up on championship rings with the Warriors this season, but his real-world value far exceeds his fantasy value. The 14-year veteran has been on a steady decline, fantasy-wise, since a stellar 2012-13 campaign.
Oct 21 - 11:13 PM

Patrick McCaw went scoreless with two assists and one steal in 12 minutes on Saturday.

Memphis walked away from this game with a 111-101 victory, leaving McCaw and the Warriors with an unfamiliar 1-2 record to begin the season. Steve Kerr said after Friday's game that McCaw was still battling Nick Young for the backup SG job -- no matter which guy wins, they won't be a reliable option in leagues with 14 or fewer teams.
Oct 21 - 11:13 PM

JaVale McGee finished Saturday's road loss with four points and zero other stats to his credit in four minutes off the bench.

McGee revived his NBA career as an impact player for the Warriors last year, ensuring that he's more than a 'Shaqtin a Fool' footnote. Rookie big man Jordan Bell looks like a favorite of coach Steve Kerr's, however, which makes McGee a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
Oct 21 - 11:12 PM

J.J. Barea scored 19 points off the bench with five rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

He came off the bench most likely because coach Rick Carlisle didn't want to put him on James Harden, but Barea tends to produce no matter where his minutes come from. Dennis Smith Jr. (knee) isn't expected to miss much time, but Barea looks to have a role around 20 minutes until Seth Curry (leg) can return. He's worth a look in 14-team leagues.
Oct 21 - 11:12 PM

Nick Young had one turnover and zero other stats to his credit in five minutes vs. Memphis on Saturday.

Young started the season by coring 17 points vs. Houston, but since then he's averaged 1.5 points in 8.0 minutes. Steve Kerr said after Friday's game that his second unit rotation was still being decided: "Nick and Patrick [McCaw], I don't think either has won the [backup SG] job yet." Klay Thompson logged 38 minutes tonight, and neither Young nor McCaw will hold value while Klay is healthy.
Oct 21 - 11:11 PM

Tobias Harris scored a team-high 31 points and knocked down three 3-pointers on Saturday in Detroit's 111-107 victory over the Knicks.

Harris was 13-of-24 from the floor and also chipped in six boards and an assist. Harris' fantasy value is climbing, as he's now averaging 24.3 points, 6.3 boards and 2.6 treys through the first three games of the season.
Oct 21 - 11:08 PM

Dwight Powell scored six points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

He won't be seeing much playing time while Nerlens Noel and Dirk Nowitzki are healthy. Powell is only a stash in very deep leagues.
Oct 21 - 11:08 PM

Wesley Iwundu (hamstring) saw his first regular season action Saturday at Cleveland, scoring one point with two rebounds in five minutes.

Iwundu turned heads in summer league and was given a look during the preseason, but he'll likely be nailed to the bench most nights unless disaster strikes with several injuries to the Orlando backcourt.
Oct 21 - 11:04 PM

Dorian Finney-Smith did not score in his start against the Rockets on Saturday.

Coach Rick Carlisle has used him in matchups for his length on perimeter defense, but the offense just won't be there most nights.
Oct 21 - 11:04 PM

Andre Drummond scored 21 points and hauled down 12 rebounds in 38 minutes during Saturday's 111-107 victory over the Knicks.

Drummond was impressively efficient in this contest, shooting 9-of-11 from the field and knocking down all three of his free throws. Incredibly, Drummond, a career 38.2 percent free-throw shooter, is now a perfect 5-of-5 from the charity stripe this season. If he can shoot above 60 percent from the line this year, that would increase his fantasy value significantly.
Oct 21 - 11:00 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. struggled with his shot once again on Saturday, finishing just 4-of-16 from the floor, including 3-of-10 from 3-point territory.

THJ finished with 14 points, one rebound, two assists and two turnovers. He didn't record a steal or block. Late in the fourth quarter, he was actually 1-of-10 from the field and 0-of-7 from downtown, before knocking down his final three 3-point attempts. Despite his cold start to the year, Hardaway is still one of the focal points of the Knicks offense and will put up plenty of points this season.
Oct 21 - 10:59 PM

Iman Shumpert connected on 4-of-5 from behind the arc, finishing with 21 points, seven rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot Saturday against the Magic.

Shumpert was seeing extended playing time with the game well out of hand in the second half, and he made the most of his opportunity. He is still not expected to see enough minutes to warrant fantasy consideration in most formats as long as Dwyane Wade and J.R. Smith are healthy. He'll see extended run in garbage time and that's about it.
