Otto Porter scored 20 points with 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes vs. the Lakers on Thursday.
This was his third double-double of the season and Porter was efficient once again, hitting 9-of-16 shots and his only free throw. The Wizards rewarded Porter with a max deal over the offseason and so far it's paying dividends, as he's averaging 17.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.7 blocks and 2.3 triples on 57.1 percent shooting. He's been a top-10 player in standard 9-cat leagues and is proving that his top-24 finish from last season was no fluke. Nov 9 - 10:35 PM

Otto Porter scored 13 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Mavs on Tuesday.

After missing one game due to an illness last Wednesday, Porter hasn't skipped a beat. He's averaged 15.7 points, 5.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.7 blocks, 1.0 steals and 2.3 treys with at least 60.0 percent made from the field in each of those three games. Porter has been even better this year than last year with first-round value in standard leagues so far.
Nov 7 - 10:10 PM

Otto Porter Jr. (illness) was able to play Friday against the Cavaliers, finishing with 15 points and five rebounds across 31 minutes.

Porter was back after missing Wednesday's game due to illness, and he shot a very efficient 6-of-10 from the field, including 3-of-7 from behind the arc. It's a great sign he was able to play his regular allotment of minutes, meaning it's safe to get him back into the active fantasy lineup in all leagues allowing daily transactions.
Nov 3 - 10:06 PM

John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter, Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat will start against the Cavs on Friday.

The Wizards will go with their main lineup from last year, but Morris is going to be limited today. Porter did not play on Wednesday, but there's no indication he'll be limited tonight. He needs to be in all season-long lineups, but he is pricey in DFS.
Nov 3 - 6:28 PM

Otto Porter (illness) is listed as probable in the game notes for Friday's matchup against the Cavs.

Porter missed Wednesday's game, but was able to practice on Thursday and is on track to suit up Friday night. We should have confirmation shortly. Jason Smith, who started in place of Porter on Wednesday, will get bumped back to the bench. Porter is off to a terrific start this season, ranking in the top-10 overall in nine-category fantasy leagues.

Otto Porter (illness) was back with the Wizards for Thursday's practice.

He wasn't able to play through the illness on Wednesday, but it sounds like he's probable to face the Cavaliers on Friday. Similar to last season, Porter has been a fantasy stud, averaging 18.7 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.7 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.5 triples on 55.7 percent shooting. Jason Smith will return to the bench if Porter is a go.
Nov 2 - 1:39 PM

Otto Porter (illness) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday and Jason Smith will start in his place.

The Wizards starting unit has played more minutes together than any other lineup and they've been superb with their top-ranked net rating among lineups with at least 35 minutes. Kelly Oubre should get all he can handle at small forward, Mike Scott should see minutes around 20, and there should be more small-ball lineups with Jodie Meeks. Oubre makes sense in DFS and Smith is an option as a DFS punt.
Nov 1 - 5:23 PM

Otto Porter (illness) is questionable to face the Suns on Wednesday.

We should get another update on Porter in about an hour. Porter has been outstanding all season, especially on the offensive side with his 66.1 TS% for his 18.7 points per game. If he can't go, Kelly Oubre would be locked in for big minutes while Jason Smith and Jodie Meeks would also likely get more run. Plus, the Suns could be less likely to be blown out, so that may help DFS players target what could be a high-scoring game.
Nov 1 - 4:27 PM

Otto Porter had another strong all-around game on Sunday with 16 points, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block.

The Wizards got out to a 13-0 lead and never looked back, with a 31-point halftime lead that was the biggest for Washington since 1975. Porter has been sensational and he rounded out tonight's line with efficient 5-of-9 shooting in 28 minutes -- he would have played more if it weren't a complete blowout. He's sitting pretty with top-10 value through Washington's first six games.
Oct 29 - 8:54 PM

Otto Porter had 17 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, four steals, a block and three 3-pointers on 6-of-13 shooting in 32 minutes on Monday.

The rebounds and 3-pointers were season highs and this was his first double-double of the season. OPJ is rolling, averaging 18.3 points, 9.0 rebounds, 3.7 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.7 3-pointers after three games. He had his breakout season last year, but he's rapidly building on it right now.
Oct 24 - 12:41 AM

Otto Porter scored 28 points with nine rebounds, three assists, four steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

He did most of his damage in the first half with 20 points before the break. Porter has been effective as a stretch four and coach Scott Brooks will gladly play him there as much as possible. He did slow down a bit last year, but so far he's getting big minutes and could be a bigger part of the offense to go with his well-rounded game.
Oct 21 - 12:15 AM

Otto Porter had 10 points, eight rebounds, three steals, one block and zero turnovers in 33 minutes vs. the Sixers.

Porter came out scorching with eight straight points for the Wizards, after which he took a backseat offensively. John Wall said that Porter was the most improved player on the roster this preseason, and it looks like he could improve on last year's strong fantasy campaign -- he's borderline elite in category leagues.
Oct 18 - 10:06 PM

Otto Porter quietly racked up 11 points, eight rebounds, three assists and one steal without any turnovers in 22 minutes on Friday.

Porter is a case-study in fantasy values -- he's solid in most points-based leagues, emerges as an early mid-round value in 8-cat, and is borderline elite in 9-cat. He's not the flashiest early-round pick, but there's no reason Porter can't duplicate last season's averages of 13.4 points (51.5 percent FGs, 83.2 percent FTs), 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and just 0.5 turnovers.
Oct 13 - 11:04 PM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said Otto Porter could fill the void at power forward with Markieff Morris (hernia) sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks.

"Otto definitely has the ability to play four. It's such a smaller league. In the 80s or 90s, Otto at the four probably wouldn't be the decision," Brooks said. "But now with all the shooting fours in the league, I think he can play that position." Brooks also said guys like Kelly Oubre, Jason Smith and Mike Scott could see a bump in minutes as well -- Oubre is likely the other big winner here. Porter was a fantasy stud last season and is a great value in the middle rounds.
Sep 25 - 7:35 PM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks praised Otto Porter during Wednesday's press conference, saying, "He does so many little things that the stats don't show."

"I never look at Otto and judge him by the stat sheet," Brooks said. "He dives on the floor for a loose ball, he sets screens. He makes the extra pass to the corner, offensive rebounds." Across-the-board stats are the bedrock of Porter's roto-league fantasy appeal. He was a top-20 player on a cumulative basis in 9-cat leagues last year, averaging 13.4 points (51.5% FGs, 83.2% FTs), 1.9 threes, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 0.5 turnovers, with only two missed games all season. He doesn't jump out in any category, however, and is likely to be undervalued in most drafts.
