Robin Lopez set a career high with eight blocked shots on Wednesday, adding 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting with nine rebounds, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes.
RoLo had six blocks vs. the Nuggets last Tuesday, so the Bulls' defensive scheme is clearly suiting him well. The Lakers as a team had been blocked just 4.7 times per game prior to this evening, the seventh-lowest mark in the league, which makes his block party even more impressive. Lopez has scored double-digit points in nine straight games and should obviously be owned in all leagues. Nov 30 - 11:57 PM

Robin Lopez had 12 points, eight rebounds, a steal and a season-high six blocks in 35 minutes of Tuesday's tough loss to the Nuggets.

After a dreadful start to the season, Ro-Lo is Ro-lling, averaging 11.4 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks over his last five games. He's scored in double figures in seven straight games and has double-doubled in four of them. The buy-low window is officially closed after this one.
Nov 23 - 12:46 AM

Robin Lopez hit just 5-of-16 shots, but still finished with 10 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks in 38 minutes of Thursday's win in Utah.

After failing to double-double in his first nine games, he's now done it in three straight, and just missed it being four straight by one rebound. He's played at least 38 minutes in three of his last four games and is averaging 11 points, 10 rebounds and 1.2 blocks over his last five. The problem is his shooting, which is at 38 percent over that stretch, but if he keeps double-doubling and racking up monster minutes, we suspect the shots will start falling now that is slow start to the season is behind him.
Nov 18 - 1:12 AM

Robin Lopez hit 6-of-15 shots for 13 points, 11 rebounds and a block in Tuesday's blowout win over the Blazers.

Ro-Lo's off to a slow start this season, but has now double-doubled in each of his last two games, and is averaging 13 points, 11 boards and 1.3 blocks over his last three. He's starting to figure it out with the Bulls and will hopefully keep it going, as preseason expectations were kind of high on the big man. He's finally starting to live up to the hype.
Nov 16 - 12:48 AM

Robin Lopez got hot early and hit 8-of-20 shots for 16 points, nine rebounds and a block in 38 minutes on Thursday.

He hit season highs in minutes, shots, makes, rebounds, and points tonight, and this was a long time coming for his owners. Hopefully there's more where this came from in his near future, while the fact he did it against Hassan Whiteside is pretty impressive.
Nov 10 - 11:28 PM

Robin Lopez played 29 minutes against the Knicks on Friday with five points, six rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He was back for his normal playing time. After that weird 14-minute Wednesday, Lopez should be back to his role with minutes in the upper 20s. His game translates well to standard-style leagues, so he should be owned.
Nov 5 - 1:47 AM

Robin Lopez played just 14 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday with eight points, five rebounds and two blocks.

Coach Fred Hoiberg went away from Lopez late in the game and it may have cost his team. The move didn't really make sense and we're not expecting it to continue. Lopez's fantasy owners can keep trust him as a low-ceiling, high-floor big man worthy of ownership in all standard leagues.
Nov 2 - 11:54 PM

Robin Lopez scored eight points with eight rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 27 minutes on Thursday.

If you drafted Robin Lopez and expected some "wow" stat lines, you're sure to be disappointed most nights. That said, he's likely going to be in the top 15 for blocks, has played in 82 games for three of the last four seasons, and is one of the best bigs for percentages. He should have no problem hanging inside the top 100 for nine-category leagues.
Oct 27 - 11:46 PM

Robin Lopez blocked six shots on Thursday, adding seven points and four rebounds.

Not a bad finish for Lopez in his seven preseason games, averaging 8.6 points, 5.4 boards, 0.7 assists, 0.3 steals, 2.3 blocks and 1.3 turnovers on 54.2 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line. The scoring won't be there, but Ro-Lo's blocks, plus percentages and no glaring holes are huge for his fantasy game. He's a sneaky pick in the middle rounds after the high-end big men are off the board.
Oct 20 - 11:56 PM

Robin Lopez scored eight points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks in 20 minutes against the Bucks on Monday.

While he played in a slow system last year, Lopez has played in up-tempo styles before. He's already established a great rapport with Rajon Rondo, who said Ro-Lo could be an All-Star this year. His fantasy floor has always been very high with good percentages to go with some blocks, so he's a great target in the middle rounds after the big-name centers come off the board.
Oct 3 - 10:39 PM

Jimmy Butler said he enjoyed playing with Robin Lopez at camp on Tuesday.

"I got a wide open layup because he sealed everyone off," said Butler. "The way he’s crashing the boards, sets incredible screens, and he can shoot it a little bit. He has great hands, nice footwork. He’s going to be big. Everyone is going to love him.’’ Coach Fred Hoiberg wouldn't commit to Lopez as the starting center, but that just means he's keeping an open mind. He's still the heavy favorite to start and is a solid mid-round pick after averaging 10.3 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.6 blocks last season.

Fred Hoiberg praised Robin Lopez's ability to "rim roll" and play defensively.

Lopez should serve as Chicago's new Joakim Noah, and right now he doesn't have a lot of competition for minutes with Pau Gasol also out of the picture. Even if the Bulls add a backup behind Lopez—which Chicago should do despite Cristiano Felicio's presence on the roster—the "other" Lopez projects as an underrated, under-appreciated fantasy asset ahead of the 2016-17 season.
Jun 27 - 12:27 PM

Robin Lopez has been traded to the Bulls in Wednesday's Derrick Rose trade.

This also means Pau Gasol is as good as gone from the Bulls. Lopez has really blossomed into a solid starting center and he should be looking at close to his 27.1 minutes per game average from last year. It might be tougher for him to fit in to coach Fred Hoiberg's system, but Lopez fared very well with Terry Stotts in Portland. He's a fine late round pick and should have more offensive chances on his new team.
Jun 22 - 3:23 PM

Robin Lopez scored 24 points with 15 boards, one assist and three blocks in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

It was a great matchup for him. Lopez has been a block machine lately with 15 in his last four, adding averages of 12 points, 10.3 boards, 2.3 assists and 0.3 steals in 44.2 percent from the field. His minutes haven't dropped either at 31.9 per game in that stretch, so he's good to go with some added offensive responsibility while Kristaps Porzingis (shoulder) is out.
Apr 8 - 11:29 PM

Robin Lopez was ejected late in Wednesday's game vs. the Hornets, finishing with eight points, seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 35 minutes.

It could have been much worse for RoLo's owners as he used a few 'magic words' with just four minutes left in the game. He should bounce back quickly vs. the 76ers' weakened frontcourt on Friday.
