Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter was impressive in Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans, scoring 28 points to go with seven boards, one assist, two steals and one block in 37 minutes.

He was a tank inside the paint on Tuesday, and was able to hoist up 22 shots on the night, connecting on 12 of them. Kanter doesn't usually contribute blocks and steals consistently, which makes him tough to own in standard leagues. However, Kanter has seen his value rise in the absence of Derrick Favors (ankle), and should be owned for owners in need of points and rebounds.

Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter went for 25 and eight with Derrick Favors (ankle) playing just 10 minutes in the Jazz's 100-95 loss to the Heat.

Kanter hit 10-of-17 shots (including a three) and all four of his free throw attempts, but as usual he did not have a steal, block or assist. With Favors leaving the arena in a boot there could be a nice window for Kanter to produce in, so pick him up but realize he'll never be a high upside player in standard formats due to the aforementioned deficiencies.

Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter notched 12 points, 15 rebounds and one block in 31 minutes of action on Tuesday, as the Jazz upset the Spurs with a 100-96 victory in Utah.

Kanter was in danger of being suspended for this game after throwing his mouthpiece into the stands in frustration on Monday, but the league was (relatively) lenient and only gave him a $25,000 fine. He made 6-of-9 shots vs. San Antonio and his fantasy value remains tethered to his scoring (13.6 points), rebounds (7.0) and FG percentage (52.9 percent on 10.9 attempts).

Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter has been fined $25k for throwing his mouthpiece into the stands on Monday.

Kanter is going to get a fine instead of a suspension, so owners can continue to roll him out there for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs. Click the link below if you'd like to see the video of Kanter letting frustration get the best of him.

Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter scored 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds and two blocks over 32 minutes in Monday's loss to the Kings, and he also got away with chucking his mouthpiece into the stands without being ejected.

A suspension seems possible if not likely and owners should be keeping an eye out for that. Now that Alec Burks is back, any designs on extra touches are null and void and the last thing Kanter wants to do is open the door for young and promising Rudy Gobert.

Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter scored 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting with five rebounds and no other stats in 28 minutes on Friday against the Magic.

Kanter's overall value hasn't changed much as an end-of-the-bench big man in 12-14 team leagues, but it's worth pointing out that Alec Burks' injury will open up some shots for everybody in the starting lineup.

Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter played well against the Raptors on Wednesday with 19 points, nine rebounds, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.

Apparently Kanter's big Monday game has helped him get minutes. Coach Quin Snyder seemed to be cooling on Kanter, but he looks to be giving him another chance. Tonight was not a great night for Kanter on the defensive end and that could ultimately be his undoing. For now, he looks to be worth owning in standard leagues.
Dec 4 - 1:19 AM
Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter posted a double-double against the Nuggets on Monday with 17 points, 15 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 31 minutes.

He attempted 8-of-19 from the field and the Jazz went to him a ton tonight with Derrick Favors (illness) out. His 15 boards were also a season high and the same goes for his 19 shots tonight. He played 20 minutes or less in three of his previous five games, so this output could help him earn more minutes in the future. Kanter is a fringe player to own in standard leagues.

Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter didn't play well against the Clippers on Saturday with six points, two rebounds and two fouls in 18 minutes.

Blake Griffin reminded everyone why everyone was so bearish on Kanter coming into the year. His defense was just not there, but his minutes are not in jeopardy or anything just yet. Kanter is a fringe option in standard leagues and Rudy Gobert isn't quite building off his tremendous summer.

Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter scored 19 points on 9-of-13 shooting with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block over 33 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bulls.

Kanter is averaging just 0.2 steals and 0.2 blocks per game, so if you're using him you probably wanted to uncork some cheap champagne tonight. He's more of a 14-team guy given his lack of statistical upside in standard leagues.
Nov 25 - 2:03 AM
Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter scored 16 points and grabbed a season-high 15 rebounds in an easy win vs. the Thunder on Tuesday, making 6-of-16 FGs and 4-of-8 FTs in just 27 minutes of action.

This was Kanter's first sub-.500 shooting game since Nov. 7, and he's shooting 85.0 percent from the charity stripe this season, so he gets a pass for the poor percentages. He also had zero assists, steals or blocks tonight, which is an unfortunate trend -- his 8-cat fantasy value is severely limited by averages of 0.4 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.3 blocks per game.

Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter played just 12 minutes against the Knicks on Friday, scoring six points with five rebounds and no steals or blocks.

So much for any momentum gained earlier in the week. The Knicks played small and unless there is some unknown injury it appears as if Quin Snyder simply went small, but it's not a great sign that Kanter's minutes are subject to this type of swing. Weigh out your options and consider a drop if you're looking at a hot free agent.

Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter played 29 minutes and hit 7-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers on his way to 16 points, five rebounds, a steal and a block against the Hawks.

Kanter went through a slump but is playing well. He's blocked three shots over his last two games and is averaging 14.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 0.6 blocks and .08 3-pointers over his last five games. If he was dropped in your league and you need a big man, think about grabbing him.

Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter had two blocks against the Pacers on Monday with 18 points, three rebounds, one 3-pointer and five turnovers.

These were his first two blocks of the season. Kanter is also shooting the ball well right now and made 58.2 percent of his shots from the field in his last five to go with averages of 15.0 points, 7.6 boards, 0.2 steals and 0.4 triples. He's still not a great player to own in standard leagues, but points league owners should be somewhat satisfied with the Turkish big man.
