Al Jefferson hit 13-of-19 shots for 29 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks, racking up his 40th double-double of the season in Saturday's win over the Sixers.
Jefferson is a beast in Charlotte and has now gone for 20 & 10 in six straight games. And it was almost seven, as he had 19 points and 11 rebounds in the game before the streak started. He got off to a real slow start this season, but rewarded patient owners with second-to-third round fantasy value this season in 9- and 8-cat leagues, respectively. We previously reported that he could achieve first round value, which would be mathematically impossible by a long shot. Our apologies. Apr 12 - 10:26 PM

It's probably not a bad idea to tank for the seventh seed with the way the Pacers are playing right now and the Bobcats might even be considered as the favorite based on a current four-game winning streak. As for Jefferson, he's a fantasy beast.

Al Jefferson went to the locker room during the first quarter of Monday's game vs. the Wizards and returned in the second quarter.

He looked like he may have been poked in the eye and went back to the locker room with a towel over his face. Jefferson was replaced by Bismack Biyombo, but he's fine and just has an adhesive bandage above his eye.

Al Jefferson's recent strong play is even leaving his opponents in awe.

Following Jefferson's 35-point, 15-board outburst during Wednesday's overtime win over the Nets, opponents heaped praise upon the big man. "No one on the planet can guard him," said Brooklyn forward Paul Pierce. "We tried to double him. Single, triple – there’s nothing we could have done with him tonight. He was in that type of zone, and that’s the way he’s been playing." Big Al has stepped up his game as of late and is averaging 23.4 points, 11.0 boards, 3.0 assists, and 0.6 blocks over his past five games, so his fantasy owners should be joining his opponents in marveling over his recent play.
Mar 27 - 11:00 AM

Al Jefferson hit 15-of-27 shots for 35 points, 15 rebounds and zero blocks in Wednesday's overtime win.

He abused Mason Plumlee tonight and Plumlee didn't have much to offer on either end of the court tonight, although a block or two would have been nice from Jefferson. He's in line to get some MVP votes, as he's been a beast ever since he became fully healthy a month into the season. The Bobcats have won 10 of their last 12 games at home and currently sit as the No. 7 seed in the East.
Mar 26 - 9:54 PM

Al Jefferson dominated in the paint against the Blazers on Saturday with 28 points, seven boards, six assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes.

The Bobcats put up 54 points in the paint and Big Al put on a clinic against Robin Lopez. He's quickly become the master of the 2-point field goal and scoring at a 25-point-per-game clip since the break while only making 2.4 free throws per game. Jefferson is a beast.
Mar 22 - 9:46 PM

Al Jefferson scored 20 points with seven boards, two assists, two blocks and two steals in 37 minutes during Sunday's 101-92 win over the Bucks.

He shot 10-of-17 from the field and his production on 2-pointers is out of this world. Since the All-Star break, Jefferson has 162 makes from inside the arc in his 14 games which is leads the NBA -- Carmelo Anthony has 121 in his 15 games. Jefferson is absolutely rolling right now and scored at least 20 points in nine of his last 10 games.
Mar 16 - 4:53 PM

Al Jefferson was up to his usual tricks against the Wolves on Friday during a 105-93 win, scoring 25 points with 16 boards, one assist and one block in 38 minutes.

A 25 and 16 line is usually exciting news for most players, but not for Big Al. In his previous seven games this month, Jefferson averaged 27.7 points, 10.1 boards, 2.1 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.1 steals on 61.5 percent from the field. He's carrying a lot of his fantasy owners right now.
Mar 14 - 10:12 PM

Al Jefferson hit 16-of-25 shots for 34 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's surprisingly easy win over the Pacers.

Jefferson also hit and 3-pointer (which he banked in) and played solid defense against Roy Hibbert, holding him to four points on 2-of-6 shooting. Jefferson is a fantasy beast and should keep it going, especially since it appears the Cats are heading to the playoffs.
Mar 5 - 10:27 PM

Al Jefferson destroyed the non-existent interior defense of the Heat on Monday, scoring 38 points on 18-of-24 shooting with 19 rebounds and a steal.

Jefferson took Steven Adams to school on Sunday and the Heat don't have anybody outside of the Birdman that can remotely slow the big fella down. Jefferson is just a top 35-50 value (9/8 cat) on the season because of his early ankle issues, but he is a top 24-36 play on a per-game basis this year.
Mar 3 - 10:13 PM

Al Jefferson torched the Thunder for 25 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in Sunday's road loss, hitting 10-of-16 shots from the field.

Jefferson quickly got rookie Steven Adams into foul trouble and he had it going all night. The Bobcats' bench was also effective, shooting a combined 13-of-25 with three players in double-figures, but the rest of the starters came up empty.
Mar 2 - 10:04 PM

Al Jefferson finally cooled off on Saturday, in a big way, hitting just 2-of-13 shots for six points and nine rebounds in 31 minutes.

Jefferson has been as hot as any center in the league for almost two months now, so he was due for an off game. He's healthy and played solid minutes, so he should bounce back in the next one. Hopefully you didn't start him in a daily money league tonight, although it wasn't easy to see this one coming after he went off for 33 points, 10 boards and two blocks a night earlier.
Feb 22 - 10:06 PM

Al Jefferson feasted on Alexis Ajinca's overmatched defense in Friday's 90-87 win over the Pelicans, scoring 33 points on 14-of-30 shooting with 10 rebounds and two blocks.

If Big Al didn't do this against Ajinca we'd have been surprised. Kemba Walker went for 13 and eight with five rebounds, Gerald Henderson scored just seven points, and Josh McRoberts had three blocks but added just six points and five boards in the win.
