Danilo Gallinari double-doubled on Friday with 16 points (5-of-15 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), 10 rebounds, two 3-pointers and two assists through 35 minutes of playing time.
It was Gallinari's 14th career double-double, and he was a lone bright spot for a Denver team that struggled to put any points on the board. Gallinari has struggled to get his shot to drop for most of the season (38.7 percent shooting) but he's still putting up fourth-round value in 9-cat leagues with averages of 18.2 points (career-high), 6.4 rebounds (career-high), 2.5 assists, 1.5 three-pointers and just 1.5 turnovers per game. If this is The Rooster's floor, it'll be fun to see his ceiling when that shot starts to drop. Nov 28 - 1:47 AM

Danilo Gallinari shot just 2-of-10 from the field in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers, but he was able to get to the free throw line at will and finished with 20 points and 18 boards.

He has been in a slump lately and is shooting just 35.3 percent from the field over his last five games, but he was still aggressive tonight and hit 16-of-17 free throws. The Nuggets are in desperate need of offense and Gallinari is their best weapon by far, so he should be able to get it going from the field soon. Regardless, his owners will be pretty pumped with his numbers tonight.

Danilo Gallinari shot 4-of-16 from the field in Sunday's loss vs. the Warriors, but he went 10-of-11 at the line to finish with 19 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Gallo is slumping, averaging only 14.3 points on 10-of-39 shooting in Denver's past three games. He's too talented to struggle much longer, however, and this is a prime opportunity to pry him away from his owners below cost. He should fare better vs. the struggling Clippers on Tuesday.
Nov 22 - 10:49 PM

Danilo Gallinari scored 15 points with 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

There was a really bad play by Gallo to leave a 3-point shooter, so there's a decent chance coach Mike Malone isn't happy with Gallinari's effort. The Rooster hasn't had his effort called into question before, so hopefully he gets Malone's message loud and clear. His owners shouldn't worry yet.
Nov 21 - 2:16 AM

Danilo Gallinari cooled off vs. the Spurs on Wednesday, scoring nine points on 2-of-9 shooting with eight boards, three assists and one block.

He was coming off a 32-point game on Tuesday, but the matchups were night and day -- he blew up vs. the Pelicans and struggled vs. the Spurs. The Rooster should get back on track in a favorable matchup vs. the visiting Suns on Friday.
Nov 19 - 12:12 AM

Danilo Gallinari made 12-of-19 from the field for 32 points during a 115-98 win over the Pelicans on Tuesday, adding eight rebounds, eight assists and five 3-pointers.

It's the fourth time in his last six in which he scored at least 25. Gallinari also threw down an alley-oop jam and said he didn't know he had it in him during the post-game interview. Plus, he continues to run the offense more a lot like he did at FIBA. His efficiency is trending up with a 59.7 true shooting percentage to help him rise to a second-round value on the season in standard leagues. If he can stay healthy, he should be an outstanding value.
Nov 18 - 1:46 AM

Danilo Gallinari scored eight points with four rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Suns on Saturday during a 105-81 loss.

It's his third game of the season below 25 percent from the field with his 2-of-12 shooting line. Gallinari was always in a position to succeed and he's still putting up fourth-round value on the season after this one. As long as he stays healthy, he'll be worthy of his ADP.
Nov 15 - 12:51 AM

Danilo Gallinari couldn't miss during the Nuggets' win over the Rockets on Friday, scoring 27 points on 7-of-9 shooting (10-of-10 from the line) to go with three 3-pointers, three assists, one rebound, one steal and two turnovers through 36 minutes.

Over the past four games The Rooster has shot a perfect 28-of-28 from the free throw line, to go with averages of 20.8 points, 2.3 treys, 3.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.5 turnovers per game. He's currently posting third-round value on the season in standard nine-cat leagues, and he looks all set up to build off last year's terrific post-break run. Congrats if you stole Danilo on draft day.
Nov 14 - 1:13 AM

Danilo Gallinari scored 25 points during a 103-102 win over the Bucks on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers.

He scored the 5,000th point of his career tonight. Gallinari still isn't hitting on all cylinders this season, averaging 17.9 points, 5.1 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.4 treys on 40.0 percent from the field and 90.6 percent from the line. His efficiency and usage rates are both trending up, so the buy-low window is just about closed.
Nov 12 - 1:38 AM

Danilo Gallinari hit just 2-of-10 shots and missed all five of his 3-pointers for six points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal and four turnovers in Monday's win over the Blazers.

Yuck. Gallo had 25 points and a couple threes on Friday and had been playing pretty well prior to this dud, so don't read too much into it.
Nov 10 - 12:04 AM

Danilo Gallinari scored 25 points on 7-of-13 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, one assist and no steals or blocks in Friday's blowout loss to the Warriors.

Gallo hit all nine of his free throws and that's an area that can really lift him up in the rankings. He has turned the ball over just 0.5 times per game this season and he's beating his ADP handily in 9-cat formats. In 8-cat formats his top-60 value so far is more of a push.
Nov 7 - 2:13 AM

Danilo Gallinari got back on track with 21 points on 6-of-12 shooting in a win over the Lakers on Tuesday, adding eight boards, three assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

That's more like it. Gallinari shot just 26. 9 percent from the field in his last two games, so it was nice to see such a great response from the rooster. If Gallinari's shot keeps falling then all he will need to do is stay healthy in order to have a fantastic fantasy season.
Nov 4 - 2:22 AM

Danilo Gallinari made 3-of-13 from the field for 15 points against the Thunder during a 117-93 loss on Sunday, adding four rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers.

That's two bad shooting games in a row from the Rooster and he's also seen his other stats take a dip since his big 23-point opener. Gallinari is struggling around the basket and has made just 2-of-9 in mid-range. He'll get it figured out soon.
Nov 1 - 11:01 PM

Danilo Gallinari showed mid-season form vs. Houston on Wednesday, scoring 23 points with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, three blocks and zero turnovers in 36 minutes.

Gallo drained 7-of-15 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs, with three of his makes coming from downtown. It was a true nine-cat gem, and his owners couldn't have asked for a better start to the season. He was a top-15 value over the final 24 games of 2014-15, and games like this show exactly why. Congrats to all those who stole him in the middle rounds.
Oct 28 - 10:50 PM

Mike Malone is expected to give Danilo Gallinari more time with the ball in his hands this season.

"We're going to try and let him use all the strengths he has as a player," Malone said. "I think ball handling and playing pick-and-roll, especially when he's a four, we're going to play small ball at times, I think that puts a lot pressure on opposing defenses." Gallinari is going to be a focal point for whatever the Nuggets achieve, and he's worth the risk at his current mid-round ADP as a result.
