Dario Saric scored 23 points on 8-of-15 shooting vs. the Nets on Tuesday.
This was his 14th game with 20+ points which ranks second in the NBA for rookies -- Joel "The Process" Embiid still ranks 1st with 19 such games. Saric grabbed seven rebounds with one assist, one block and one triple, and he also had to play a bit of center tonight with the 76ers only having nine available players. The 76ers play three more times this week and Saric should eat the rest of the way. Mar 28 - 10:24 PM

Dario Saric went just 3-of-15 from the field on Sunday, finishing a loss vs. the Pacers with nine points, 10 rebounds, one assist and four turnovers in 28 minutes.

Sixers coach Brett Brown said that Saric has been able to "figure out the NBA quicker than [he] thought," and he's peaking at a perfect moment for fantasy owners. "When I start to shoot well, I can play easy," Saric said. "I can do good things here in the NBA." Tonight's quiet game was atypical and he's going to be on plenty of winning fantasy squads. He won't come cheap on draft day next season.

Dario Saric scored a career-high 32 points during a 117-107 win over the Bulls on Friday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

The Homie Dario just will not let up. As he has all season, coach Brett Brown talked up his future Rookie of the Year. "When you can find someone that competes at his level and also has a selfless side, that's a hell of a package," Brown said. When the 76ers add so much talent to their roster next year, it'll be very interesting to see how Brown uses Dario. Until then, Saric's fantasy owners can just enjoy the ride.
Mar 25 - 2:03 AM

Dario Saric continued his Rookie of the Year campaign during a 105-99 win over the Celtics on Sunday, scoring 23 points with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

He should have ROY locked up right now. The Homie Dario was off to a bad start in this game and made just 1-of-6 from the field to start, but he carried the 76ers late and attacked the basket. Saric just drops big lines almost every night since the deadline, averaging 19.3 points, 8.3 boards, 4.6 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.4 treys in his previous games since the break. He is going to be a league-winning asset for a lot fantasy owners.
Mar 19 - 5:18 PM

Dario Saric made 3-of-9 from the field for 10 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers against the Mavs on Friday.

It may have been his worst offensive game since January, but he still was able to turn in a multiple-category stat line. Saric did go to the locker room in the first half during this game, but he returned to the bench within about two minutes in real time. Saric gets a day game against the Celtics on Sunday and should bounce back. He's the heavy favorite for Rookie of the Year.
Mar 17 - 10:16 PM

Dario Saric hit 11-of-20 shots and two 3-pointers for 25 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and two blocks in 37 minutes in Tuesday's tough 106-104 loss to the Warriors.

Go ahead and give him the Rookie of the Year Award and if you're looking for something he did wrong, the six turnovers qualify. Saric has been a beast ever since the Sixers sent Ersan Ilyasova to the Hawks and it will be interesting to see what Saric's role is next season, when Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, theoretically, will be playing. Saric has played well enough this season that the Sixers will surely find a way to get him 30 minutes a night, regardless of who he's playing with.
Mar 15 - 1:15 AM

Dario Saric lit up the Lakers on Sunday with a career-high 29 points, making 10-of-20 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs with seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

Saric has scored double-digit points in 16 straight games, the longest streak by a rookie this season, and he's simply thriving at an ideal time for fantasy owners. Ben Simmons' return next season will complicate Saric's outlook, but his versatile combination of size and skill ensures that coach Brett Brown will find substantial minutes for him one way or another. Even injured teammate Joel Embiid touted Saric as 'Rookie of the Year' during a post-game interview on Sunday.
Mar 13 - 12:33 AM

Dario Saric scored 16 points with five rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

We all know the drill with Dario's output on the stat sheet, but he's vastly improved as a defender. He was last among power forwards in defensive real plus-minus earlier this season, but he's starting to climb -- that's even more interesting considering Joel Embiid is out. Saric is almost a lock for Rookie of the Year and is a must-start fantasy stud.
Mar 11 - 6:54 PM

Dario Saric hit 11-of-16 shots and four 3-pointers for 29 points, nine rebounds and two steals in 41 minutes of Philly's 114-108 loss at Portland.

Go ahead and give him the Rookie of the Year Award with Joel Embiid done for the season. Saric could be even better down the stretch as the Sixers try to solidify the chances of him getting the award, but he's already doing plenty, averaging 18.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on 47 percent shooting over his last five games.
Mar 10 - 1:03 AM

Dario Saric scored 14 points with eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes during a 112-98 loss to the Bucks on Monday.

He did go to the locker room for about a minute, but he returned and looked totally fine. Saric continues to get some minutes at center, which should help his boards in the short term. Plus, Dario's assists have been on the rise with 5.4 per game over his last five games played. He's a must-start player right now.
Mar 6 - 9:45 PM

Dario Saric filled it up yet again during an ugly 136-106 loss to the Pistons on Saturday, handing out a career-high eight dimes with 19 points, six rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in just 29 minutes.

He had those eight dimes in the middle of the third, so he could've had his first triple-double if not for so much garbage time. Saric continues to have the offense go through him while his teammates look for him on outlet passes to lead the fast breaks. He's also 6'10" and coach Brett Brown has used him at center a ton, which could help him even more with Jahlil Okafor (knee) missing time today. The Homie Dario is a must-start player right now.
Mar 4 - 9:09 PM

Dario Saric was back at it during a 105-102 win over the Knicks on Friday, scoring 21 points with 10 rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

He was in some early foul trouble, but just carried the 76ers late in this game. The reigning Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month may be the favorite to win Rookie of the Year because his coach certainly has his back. He's dropping 20-10 like it's nothing and has been a fifth-round player in his last 10.
Mar 3 - 11:36 PM

Dario Saric cooled off on Wednesday with 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting, two 3-pointers, six rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes vs. the Heat.

The matchup looked good on paper, with Luke Babbitt starting at PF for Miami, but Philly's starters never found a groove tonight with combined 18-of-45 shooting (40.0 percent). The Sixers scored 58 points in the paint tonight but they gave up the exact same amount, while getting beat from the perimeter and committing 19 turnovers. Expect better from Saric and co. for Friday's game vs. New York.
Mar 1 - 11:42 PM

Dario Saric played 35 minutes and hit 6-of-15 shots and 9-of-10 free throws for 21 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Monday's loss to the Warriors.

As if things weren't going well enough for the Homie, he also logged some minutes at center tonight with Jahlil Okafor in foul trouble, although it's doubtful that he'll actually qualify there this season. His line would have been a whole lot sweeter had he hit any of his six 3-point attempts, but we're not about to complain about his 21-7-7 line. His price is rising quickly in DFS, but it looks like he's going to be a fantasy beast the rest of the way.
Feb 27 - 9:51 PM

Dario Saric grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds during a 110-109 loss to the Knicks on Saturday, adding 19 points, five assists and one 3-pointer in a career-high 40 minutes.

That's four consecutive double-doubles and the seventh straight game with at least 18 points. Saric doesn't have a backup and the 76ers continue to run offense through him. Amazingly, he's still be efficient lately despite making just 5-of-29 (17.2 percent) from deep in his last five games to get him to 47.7 percent from the field overall. The Homie Dario looks like a league-winning type of asset going forward.
