Draymond Green flirted with a five-by-five line against the Wolves on Saturday with four points, eight rebounds, six assists, three blocks and a career-high six steals in 32 minutes.
He just seems to find a way to fill it up and he remains as the Western Conference version of Jimmy Butler -- to a slightly lesser degree. In case you needed convincing, David Lee's return is not hurting Green's fantasy value and that shouldn't be the case all season. Dec 28 - 1:57 AM

Draymond Green was his usual productive self against the Clippers during a 100-86 loss on Christmas, scoring 10 points with 10 boards, three assists, two steals, two blocks, two 3-pointers and no turnovers in 34 minutes.

His coach loves him and his play speaks for itself. Green doesn't look like he's in jeopardy of losing his playing time to David Lee and he's also held a solid usage rate since Lee's return. He was the No. 31 player in standard leagues before tonight and should continue to be owned in all leagues.
Dec 26 - 1:23 AM

Draymond Green sputtered in 23 minutes on Tuesday, making 1-of-6 shots to finish with two points, three rebounds, two assists and one turnover in a loss to the Lakers.

Green didn't attempt a free throw or record any 3-pointers, steals or blocks, making this one of his worst statistical lines of the season. David Lee played well with 12 points in 18 minutes off the bench but Green's fantasy owners should view this as a fluke in an otherwise tremendous season. All signs point to Steve Kerr keeping his starting lineup intact -- when asked about it on Monday, Kerr said, "I mean, Draymond has been fantastic."
Dec 24 - 1:22 AM

Draymond Green filled the stat sheet as per usual with 16 points, nine rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 44 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

He did make just 1-of-4 from the line, but who cares? Green is probably third on the NBA's Most Improved Player list behind Jimmy Butler and Anthony Davis, and he's also absolutely no fluke. He has Wally Pipp'd David Lee and should be worth owning in all leagues.
Dec 19 - 1:57 AM

Draymond Green hit just 2-of-11 shots and was 0-for-4 from downtown in Tuesday's loss at Memphis, which snapped the Dubs' 16-game winning streak.

Despite his dismal shooting, Green was still effective with four points, 10 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a career-high five blocks. He's blocked at least two shots in three straight games and with Andrew Bogut's knee injury suddenly becoming a bigger concern, Green's role is going to remain strong with this team, even when David Lee returns. Hang onto him at all costs.
Dec 16 - 11:11 PM

Draymond Green finished Sunday's win with a cotton ball in his nostril to stop the bleeding.

Green finished with 11 points, 13 boards, five assists, a steal and four blocks, so clearly the cotton didn't impact his ability to ball out. Despite David Lee's (hamstring) impending return, Green is on fire and showing no signs of slowing down. He's one of the best bargain-bin values of the season to date.
Dec 15 - 10:32 AM

Draymond Green had 11 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, one steal and four blocks in 48 minutes of action during Sunday's OT road win in New Orleans.

Dray is in the lead for Most Improved Player honors, with tonight's bonanza merely the latest example of his all-around production. With averages of 13.5 points, 1.8 threes, 7.7 boards, 2.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks, he has crept into top-30 fantasy value (nine-cat) with no signs of slowing down. David Lee's return isn't a threat at this point, and Green's owners should ignore any low-ball trade offers.
Dec 14 - 9:16 PM

Draymond Green continued his breakout season against the Mavericks on Saturday, making 5-of-8 from the field for 20 points with eight rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

Is there anything he can't do on a basketball court? The Warriors put him on Tyson Chandler for some of this game and Green just keeps getting better. He holds third-round value in standard fantasy leagues and has done enough to alleviate concerns of the return of David Lee. He's making a case to be an All-Star this season.
Dec 13 - 5:07 PM

Draymond Green had 11 points, eight rebounds, four steals and a 3-pointer on 4-of-8 shooting on Wednesday.

Festus Ezeli started at center, but the Dubs went small during the game and Green spent a lot of minutes at center. That probably wouldn't have been possible if Dwight Howard were healthy, but if you were worried about Green eventually losing minutes, you shouldn't be. David Lee should be locked into a bench role and Green can play four positions, and maybe five for the Warriors.
Dec 11 - 1:58 AM

Draymond Green double-doubled with 10 points, 10 boards, three assists, three steals and two blocks in the Warriors' easy win over the Wolves on Monday.

Green is rolling with top-30 value this season and it's fair to expect some drop-off when David Lee returns but not enough for owners to work overtime on a sell-high deal. Yes, he's blasting away career marks for shooting percentages and that may be an area of regression as the season goes on, but that's not a given and he could easily pick up value on the defensive end.
Dec 9 - 1:34 AM

Steve Kerr said Draymond Green gives the Warriors a "new dimension."

"He's given us a new dimension ... when your [power forward] can play pick-and-pop like that." David Lee, your thoughts? All jokes aside, Green has cemented himself as the Warriors starting power forward, and Lee will be returning to a bench role when he's healthy enough to return. Green is averaging 13.5 points, 7.6 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.9 3-pointers, 1.1 steals and 1.1 blocks on 46.2 percent shooting as a starter.
Dec 8 - 12:16 PM

Draymond Green stole the show against the Bulls on Saturday during a road win, scoring a career-high 31 points with seven rebounds, three assists, four steals, three blocks, one turnover and seven triples on 11-of-20 from the field.

Wow. He made both free throws to make this arguably the biggest nine-category line of the season. Chances are there are not going to be many more questions about Green remaining in the starting lineup with the way the Warriors are elite on both ends. He's a better fit and a better defender than David Lee (hamstring) and coach Steve Kerr loves him. His fantasy owners should not be looking to sell and can expect him to put up nice stats all season.
Dec 6 - 11:24 PM

Draymond Green scored 14 points against the Pelicans on Thursday with 14 boards, two assists, one block and two 3-pointer sin 32 minutes.

He had to deal with Anthony Davis and did look bad on occasion, but no human being can defend Davis one-on-one right now. Green is a fantastic fit for the Warriors and he's been overshadowed by Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Green's improvement in pick-and-roll and becoming a better passer has a lot to do with the Warriors having the best record in the NBA. He should still hold some nice value even when David Lee (hamstring) returns.
Dec 5 - 1:30 AM

Andrew Bogut said that Draymond Green (thumb) will start on Thursday as the Warriors take on the Pelicans.

Green will have a very difficult matchup tonight against Anthony Davis, but he remains a must-start option in standard leagues for his ability to contribute to each category on the stat sheet. However, people playing daily leagues may want to look for someone else to slot into their power forward spot.
Dec 4 - 2:48 PM

Draymond Green (thumb) will be available to play Thursday vs. the Pelicans.

With Green available to play, and David Lee (hamstring) still out, it would be quite shocking if he didn't start tonight. Green will have a difficult matchup tonight vs. Anthony Davis, but he remains a must-start guy, especially on a night with just three games being playing. Get him active.
