Marc Gasol dominated the Clippers on Sunday, racking up 30 points (13-of-18 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), 12 rebounds and two blocks in a relatively easy home victory.
The Clips have the second-worst rebounding rate in the NBA and the Grizzlies' vaunted frontcourt abused them all night long, led by Gasol's phenomenal performance. He only handed out one assist tonight, but fantasy owners can live with that since it was a result of him looking for his own shot early and often. He's established himself as a second-round fantasy value at this early juncture of the season. Nov 23 - 9:19 PM

Marc Gasol tied a career-high with 32 points in the Grizzlies' easy 117-100 win over the Celtics on Friday, hitting 13-of-22 shots (6-of-6 FTs) with eight rebounds, two assists and one block.

Gasol looks like he has lost some weight and he's ripping off solid top 15-20 value so far this year, averaging 19.1 points with 7.8 boards and a combined 2.8 steals and blocks per game. Zach Randolph went for 16 and 16 with four assists, and Mike Conley scored 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting with three treys, four rebounds and eight assists.

Marc Gasol scored 23 points against the Pistons on Saturday with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks.

He made 11-of-12 from the line tonight, which has been a big story for him on the season. Gasol is on pace for career highs in points, field goal makes, free throw makes and steals. His fantasy owners have to be pleased with their selection.

Marc Gasol scored 20 points against the Kings on Thursday with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 37 minutes during a 111-110 win.

It wasn't quite as big of a line as his big bro, but Marc is certainly rolling. Although, his shooting percentage hasn't topped 50 percent in any of his last five games, averaging 14.4 points, 6.6 boards, 4.2 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.6 blocks in 35.8 minutes in that span. His fantasy owners should have no complaints.

Marc Gasol made 10-of-11 from the line during his team's first loss of the season on Saturday, finishing with 18 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 34 minutes at Milwaukee.

He's getting to the line a lot this season and he's also on pace for career highs in points and steals. Gasol is a must-start player and just needs to stay healthy.
Nov 9 - 1:14 AM

Marc Gasol continued his case as a darkhorse MVP candidate on Wednesday with 18 points, five rebounds, six assists and four steals in 35 minutes.

He has become a much bigger part of the offense, averaging 22.5 points per game in his previous four. With the exception of 3-pointers, Gasol can do it all for fantasy owners and it wouldn't be a total shock for him to finish as the most valuable starting center in fantasy.
Nov 6 - 1:43 AM

Marc Gasol has had an incredible 29.8% usage rate for Memphis through three games this season.

Yes the sample size is small, but to put it in perspective, Gasol has only cracked a 20% usage rate once in his career. He has looked fantastic so far this season as he is averaging 24.7 points per game. Keep him locked into all starting lineups.
Nov 2 - 12:24 PM

Marc Gasol looked great in a very Memphis-like 71-69 win over the Hornets, scoring 22 points with eight rebounds, two assists and four turnovers in 36 minutes.

He's scored over 20 points in ever game and even dropped a 32-point explosion in the opener. Gasol has yet to score more than 15.0 points per game in any season in his career, but it might be this year. He's capable of being a top-12 asset in fantasy leagues.
Nov 1 - 10:51 PM

Marc Gasol was all over the place against the Pacers on Friday with 20 points, six boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks.

It wasn't the 32-point gem from the opener, but this is a monster line. Gasol is an across-the-board fantasy stud and he'll crush his third-round ADP as long as he stays healthy.

Pau Gasol thinks his brother Marc may end up with the New York Knicks when he hits free agency after the 2014-15 season.

The Knicks are a logical suitor as they'll have over $20 million in cap space next summer, but it sounds like the brother have already spoken about Pau's former coach. "Hopefully he’ll have a strong year and all the options in the world, because he’s one of the top centers, interior players in the league, so any team would be fortunate to have him," Pau said. "It’s a personal decision. I talked to my brother enough about Phil that he knows what he brings to the table. Gasol had a strong season opener with 32 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two blocks and is one of the better centers in fantasy basketball as long as he is healthy.

Marc Gasol hit 12-of-17 shots for 32 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in Wednesday's opening win against Minnesota.

He's coming off a big preseason and it looks like he's going to be a dominant center this season. If he's healthy, he should be in your lineup.
Oct 30 - 1:16 AM

The Knicks could make a play for Marc Gasol during 2015 NBA free agency.

The Knicks will be armed with cap space and looking for a second star to pair with Carmelo Anthony, so expect reports like this to continue throughout the season. Regardless, Gasol and the Knicks have been linked more than a few times, and it makes sense considering Gasol's skillset and New York's commitment to the Triangle Offense.
Oct 27 - 10:28 AM

Marc Gasol's preseason came to a quiet end on Sunday, as he scored three points with two rebounds and no other stats in 12 minutes of action.

Coach Dave Joerger simply gave his big man some rest tonight, in anticipation of their season opener on Wednesday. Gasol is relatively undervalued in most fantasy drafts, as his lackluster 2013-14 campaign was due solely to a fluke MCL injury. Expect a return to form this year, putting him in the mix for top-30 value.
Oct 24 - 11:10 PM

Marc Gasol hit 6-of-10 shots for 16 points, nine rebounds and two blocks on Wednesday.

He's had a nice preseason and is ready to go. Andre Drummond, DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard get most of the hype as fantasy centers, but Gasol might be the most efficient player of the group.
Oct 22 - 11:05 PM

Marc Gasol scored 17 points on 11 field goal attempts to go with seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and no turnovers.

He was 5-of-5 from the line and this is the type of line that defines him as a fantasy asset. He doesn't hurt owners anywhere, brings defense and takes good care of the ball. He was a first-round guy a couple seasons ago, but his MCL tear hurt him last year. He's a nice value in the third round for nine-cat leagues.
