Thaddeus Young scored 20 points with seven boards, two assists, three blocks and one steal vs. the Nuggets on Monday.
He has now put together four dominant performances in a row with three double-doubles in that span.

Date:

Thaddeus Young scored 22 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block against the 76ers during a 103-98 loss on Saturday.

He's back with some well-rounded output. In his last five, Young averaged 15.2 points, 10.2 boards, 3.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.4 blocks. Young's rebounding numbers fell off in the middle of January, so getting that back is huge.
Feb 6 - 11:38 PM

Thaddeus Young scored 14 points with 14 rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 39 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

He's finally on the right track again coming off a 16-point, 14-board game. The Nets handed out 29 assists and Thad's seven were a season high. He should be back to being a top-50 guy going forward.
Feb 6 - 12:16 AM

Thaddeus Young broke out of a funk and had 16 points and 14 rebounds in 35 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.

He didn't do much else, but this was just his third double-double since Jan. 15. He's still a candidate for steals on most nights and we're hoping this is a sign that he's ready to start racking up solid fantasy stats again. He had just eight points and five rebounds in his previous game.
Feb 3 - 11:09 PM

Thaddeus Young scored eight points with five rebounds and one block in 25 minutes against the Pistons on Monday.

After he became one of the most improved rebounders in the first month of the season, Thad has cooled off. In his previous 10, Young averaged 13.6 points, 7.9 boards and 1.6 steals. He's still a very good bet to be a mid-round player going forward and flirt with top-50 value. He also had an awesome block on Ersan Ilyasova tonight (in link below).
Feb 1 - 10:41 PM

Thaddeus Young made 9-of-18 shots to finish Wednesday's win vs. the Knicks with 19 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one turnover.

Brooklyn snapped a 10-game losing streak at the Barclays Center, where they are now 7-14 overall, as they lucked out tonight with Carmelo Anthony (ankle) on the sidelines. Thad is nearly averaging a double-double this season, to go along with 1.5 steals and solid 51.5 percent shooting, making him one of the least-discussed top-50 values in the league.
Jan 13 - 11:44 PM

Thaddeus Young said his main focus this season is just to win more basketball games.

"I [couldn’t] care less about stats," Young said. "My biggest thing is I just want to win basketball games, and that’s how I’ve been throughout the course of my career, just trying to win as many games as possible to help put my team in a position to where we can be successful. Obviously it’s not happening this year, but no matter what, I’m still going to go hard, 110 percent." Young is averaging 16.0 points and 9.3 rebounds, returning top-40 value on the season.
Jan 10 - 10:16 AM

Thaddeus Young scored 16 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

It's his 17th double-double of the season, which ranks seventh in the NBA this season. Young's rebounding has been the biggest positive to his fantasy stock and he managed to crack top 50 value in December. The potential loss of Jarrett Jack (knee) might not affect his value.
Jan 2 - 6:38 PM

Thaddeus Young scored 16 points with 14 rebounds, four steals and one block in 37 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

For a 6'8" power forward, he sure can rebound. Young has four double-doubles in his last five, averaging 17.4 points, 11.8 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.6 blocks, 2.6 steals and 1.6 turnovers on 52.7 percent from the field. The bad news is that he's missed nine straight free throws and dropped his season shooting to 56.5 percent. He's still putting up fourth-round value this year.

Thaddeus Young torched the Mavs on Wednesday, hitting 14-of-20 shots to finish with a team-high 29 points, 10 boards, two assists, four steals and one block.

He added a 3-pointer and only turned the ball over twice in 43 minutes, abusing Dirk Nowitzki's defense all night long. The only true caveat was Thad's 0-of-5 mark at the FT line, which dropped him to 65.0 percent at the stripe this season. He's a solid mid-round option regardless of the Nets' opponent, but it's worth noting that Dallas is giving up the second-most points to opposing PFs this season (23.7 ppg)
Thu, Dec 24, 2015 12:27:00 AM

Thaddeus Young double-doubled in Monday's win over the Bulls, finishing with 16 points, 13 boards, two assists and three steals in 31 minutes.

Other than Brook Lopez, Young has been the most consistent player in Brooklyn and now has 14 double-doubles on the season which ties him with Greg Monroe and Pau Gasol for sixth place in the NBA. Young has been a top-50 player in standard leagues and only a trade or an injury would slow him down at this point.
Mon, Dec 21, 2015 11:09:00 PM

Thaddeus Young double-doubled against the Pacers on Friday with 14 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one turnover.

He was just 5-of-14 from the field and surprisingly didn't have a lot of success against C.J. Miles tonight. Young has vastly improved his rebounding percentages this year and is up to a career-high 9.1 per game. Young has top-50 value on the year and there's really no sign of him slowing down.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 09:21:00 PM

Thaddeus Young scored 10 points during a 105-82 loss the Magic on Monday, adding 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes.

He scored all 10 points in the first half. Young has been fairly consistent on the season. He has five double-double-doubles in his last six games, averaging 18.2 points, 10.7 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.7 turnovers on 54.9 percent from the field. He's clinging to top-50 value on the year despite his woeful 59.6 percent from the line on the year.
Mon, Dec 14, 2015 10:50:00 PM

Thaddeus Young double-doubled with 18 points, 11 rebounds and two steals in 33 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

It looked like it was a revenge game with an outstanding start, but Young slowed down. It was his 11th double-double of the season and 10th in his last 13 games, so he's really improved on that department in the past couple weeks. Thad has fourth-round value in standard leagues and shows no signs of slowing down.
Thu, Dec 10, 2015 10:57:00 PM

Thaddeus Young hit 10-of-13 shots for 20 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Rockets.

Young's suddenly feeling it again, as he had 25 points and 14 boards on Sunday against the Warriors, and has double-doubled in three straight games. He's not going to stay this hot forever, but is playing well enough in Brooklyn to be considered a must-start on most nights.
