Greg Monroe bounced back from Friday's disappointing nine-point performance on Sunday, scoring 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting to go with 10 boards, three assists, two steals and two turnovers through 30 minutes.
Moose is currently producing at a top-35 pace in standard 9-cat leagues (top-45 in 8-cat formats) behind averages of 15.6 points, 9.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.0 block per game on 49.8 percent shooting from the field and 72.1 percent from the stripe. There's no one to question him for playing time, so he'll be an early-round guy the rest of the way. Nov 29 - 5:36 PM

Greg Monroe made 3-of-12 from the field for nine points with eight rebounds and one turnover in 19 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

Ouch. Monroe has really seen his numbers come down recently and the Bucks being blown out in four of their last five isn't helping. In that span, Monroe averaged just 13.6 points, 10.0 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals on 42.4 percent from the field and 63.2 percent from the line. His minutes are obviously safe and this is probably going to be one of his worst five-game runs all year, so buying low works here.
Nov 27 - 9:37 PM

Greg Monroe scored 11 points during a 129-118 loss to the Kings on Wednesday with seven rebounds three assists and four blocks in 29 minutes.

He was in a little bit of foul trouble, but credit to the Kings big men for keeping Monroe in check. He's seen his numbers dip since Michael Carter-Williams returned from an ankle injury, which isn't a surprise since his usage rate is down and the team isn't getting enough entry passes to him in the paint. He's still likely to be an early-round player this season.
Nov 25 - 11:38 PM

Greg Monroe dominated against his former team during a 109-95 win over the Pistons on Monday, scoring 20 points with 13 rebounds, one assist and two steals in 31 minutes.

He was 9-of-19 from the field and the team went to him early and often. This was Monroe's best game in over a week and just his third 20-10 of the season. He'll likely be a third-round guy this season.
Nov 24 - 1:22 AM

Greg Monroe made 4-of-10 from the field for 11 points against the Pacers during a 123-86 loss on Saturday, adding 14 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers.

He continues to put up worse numbers next to Michael Carter-Williams. The Bucks offense isn't giving him enough space to operate and it's led to more double teams for Monroe. He hasn't shot above 50 percent in any of the four games with MCW back and the Bucks being blown out a couple times has led to garbage time. Monroe should still flirt with early-round value.
Nov 21 - 9:26 PM

Greg Monroe scored 17 points with eight rebounds, one assist and two steals in 34 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

Before tonight, Monroe's usage rate was down 3.2 percentage points when he's with Michael Carter-Williams. After a torrid run last week, he's taken a step back in his last three, averaging 12.3 points, 10.0 boards, 0.7 blocks and 0.7 steals on 43.2 percent from the field and 45.5 percent from the line. His owners should be hoping MCW plays less.
Nov 19 - 11:55 PM

Greg Monroe took a step back on Tuesday against the Wizards with four points on 1-of-6 from the field, adding five rebounds, four assists and one block.

He was putting up some monster numbers in his past five games, but keep in mind Michael Carter-Williams does take a lot of shots and MCW missing time could have helped Monroe post those inflated stats. He was exposed on defense today and coach Jason Kidd does put guys on a short leash for stuff like that. That said, Monroe owners have nothing to worry about as long as they're not expecting him to be quite as good as he was in the past week.
Nov 17 - 9:33 PM

Greg Monroe owned the paint in a 108-105 double-overtime win over the Cavs on Saturday, scoring 16 points with 17 boards, three assists and one block in 43 minutes.

He's having an awesome year in Milwaukee, averaging 17.8 points, 10.2 boards, 3.1 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.9 turnovers on 54.8 percent from the field and 78.9 percent from the line. After a somewhat slow start, the former Piston is hitting on all cylinders with second-round value on the season.
Nov 15 - 12:34 AM

Greg Monroe hit 7-of-11 shots for 17 points, 14 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 33 minutes of Tuesday's loss to Boston.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 16 with a 3-pointer and two steals, and Khris Middleton added 13 points, but hit just 3-of-12 shots (and two 3-pointers). These are the only trustworthy starters for the Bucks, and it's important to note that Jabari Parker will be rested on Wednesday, possibly clearing the way for more John Henson and Chris Copeland. As for Monroe, he's fit in quite nicely in Milwaukee and is a very reliable fantasy center right now.
Nov 10 - 11:30 PM

Greg Monroe went for 20 and eight with two assists, two steals and two blocks in Saturday's win over the Nets.

Monroe has been on a tear to start the season but he hit a speed bump on Friday. Until the Bucks are full strength, he should be locked into solid early round value.
Nov 8 - 7:23 AM

Greg Monroe scored just eight points on 3-of-12 shooting with seven rebounds, three assists and one block in 23 minutes of action on Friday against the Knicks.

Monroe has started the season off on fire and was an early sell-high candidate based on a ridiculous first round start. He'll settle in somewhere around the top 40-50 producers per night.
Nov 7 - 12:07 AM

Greg Monroe scored 18 points with eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and two turnovers in 36 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

The Bucks really like to use him in the post for passing to get the defense to collapse, and most of his assists have gone to Khris Middleton this season. The Moose is just as loose as expected in Milwaukee, averaging 19.8 points, 9.2 boards, 1.8 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.6 turnovers in five games this season.
Nov 5 - 12:29 AM

Greg Monroe's early season tear continued on Monday against the Nets, as he scored 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting with 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

Monroe has been returning first round value and is enjoying life with the extra touches he's getting due to various absences. Jabari Parker is returning on Wednesday with 15-20 minute cap, O.J. Mayo should get back at some point, and this seems like a bit of a sell-high moment for the aggressive trader. Otherwise, Monroe looks like a late early-round play this year.
Nov 3 - 12:04 AM

Greg Monroe scored 14 points with six rebounds, five assists, one steal and two blocks in 28 minutes during a 106-87 loss to the Raptors.

He could not handle Jonas Valanciunas in the low post tonight. Monroe not having Andre Drummond around has put a little more pressure on him as a center, but he's still performing on the stat sheet with averages of 19.3 points, 8.3 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.7 steals. The Bucks are now 0-3 while the Pistons are 3-0.
Nov 1 - 9:57 PM

Greg Monroe scored 22 points on 10-of-14 shooting with five rebounds, three assists and two steals in Friday's loss to the Wizards.

Everything is in the right place here except for Giannis Antetokounmpo's return, which netted Alphabet nine rebounds. The needle doesn't move for one game, but there is a lot of length on this squad that could contend for Monroe's boards. Regardless, he's a mid-round producer at minimum with some early round upside.
