Dario Saric made 6-of-17 from the field for 13 points with 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.
This starting unit with The Homie Dario was one of the best in basketball heading into tonight, so coach Brett Brown went heavy with each member of the starting five playing at least 33 minutes. Saric didn't shoot the ball well and is in a slump from deep over his last three, making just 2-of-16 (12.5 percent) in that span. The 76ers are expected to provide an update on Markelle Fultz (shoulder) on Sunday, but Saric should still have value until the No. 1 pick returns, assuming you're OK with bad FG%. Nov 18 - 10:53 PM

Dario Saric hit just 1-of-8 shots and missed all five of his 3-pointers in Monday's win over the Clippers, finishing with two points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

The minutes were there but his shot wouldn't go down tonight. Dario was playing very well coming into this one, scoring between 13 and 25 points in his previous four games while knocking down threes and crashing the boards. As long as he's starting for the Sixers, he should be starting for your fantasy team after a slow start to the season.
Nov 14 - 1:39 AM

Dario Saric had 14 points, three rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes in a another start for the Sixers on Saturday.

The lack of depth at guard has led to Ben Simmons playing next to just one guard and Saric is starting to bust loose. He's hit in double figures scoring in four straight games and is averaging 14.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.8 3-pointers over his last five games. It'll be interesting to see how Markelle Fultz (shoulder) and/or Jerryd Bayless (wrist) fit in, but Saric should be owned until further notice.
Nov 12 - 12:00 AM

Dario Saric scored 13 points with 10 rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

The hot shooting from early in the preseason is showing up again with 11 treys over his last three games. The 76ers have won their previous five games Saric has started, so there's almost no doubt he'll be starting until Markelle Fultz (shoulder) gets back. He should be owned in standard leagues and is trending up.
Nov 10 - 12:38 AM

Dario Saric scored a season-high 25 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and a career-high five 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Jazz.

This monster performance will have an asterisk beside it because usage-rate monster Joel Embiid was resting tonight. Saric finished 7-of-13 from the field and hit all six of his free throws in a season-high 36 minutes, but he'll likely fall back down to earth on Thursday vs. the Kings. In four previous starts, Saric posted 11.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 2.5 triples.
Nov 8 - 12:26 AM

Dario Saric made 6-of-9 from the field for 15 points in a start against the Pacers on Friday, adding six rebounds one assist and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

He didn't close this game for the most part, but he was right around his 20 minutes from his start on Wednesday. Saric isn't going to be this efficient most nights and there really aren't going to be many shots available, so he's more of a borderline player to own in standard leagues.
Nov 3 - 10:29 PM

Dario Saric was quiet in the starting lineup on Wednesday vs. the Hawks, scoring five points with six rebounds and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

J.J. Redick (back) was back in the starting lineup, but Saric kept his spot in the first unit with Ben Simmons shifting to point guard. The good news is that Jerryd Bayless looked great with the second unit, so maybe the 76ers will continue to start Saric. He hit just 1-of-9 shots and turned the ball over twice, and while the return of Richaun Holmes (wrist) will only further complicate things, Saric is at least worth keeping tabs on while he's starting.
Nov 1 - 10:13 PM

Dario Saric hit 6-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 14 points, six boards and one assist in 31 minutes of Monday's win over the Rockets.

Dario started again with J.J. Redick out with a back injury and we'd be much more excited about him for fantasy purposes if he was a permanent member of the Sixers' starting five. However, he's not and has taken a back seat to guys like Redick and Ben Simmons. Once Redick is healthy again Saric should return to the bench, where he'll be a borderline fantasy option.
Oct 30 - 11:12 PM

Dario Saric will remain in the starting five for Monday's game against the Rockets, with J.J. Redick (back) unavailable.

Saric played well through 30 minutes as a starter on Saturday, posting 12 points, one board, three dimes, one steal and four triples, so feel free to get him active. Joining Saric in the starting five will be Jerryd Bayless, Ben Simmons, Robert Covington and Joel Embiid.

Dario Saric made his first start of the season against the Mavs, scoring 12 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes on Saturday.

The lineup with Dario, Jerryd Bayless, Robert Covington, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid was only used for one minute before tonight, and it didn't really work in this game either. Saric obviously took advantage of J.J. Redick not playing today and he is coming off a zero-point dud on Wednesday. He should be better than his 5.6 points per game in his first five, but Saric is more of a stash in standard leagues with standalone value in deep leagues.
Oct 29 - 12:02 AM

Dario Saric will start for J.J. Redick (back) against the Mavs on Saturday.

It makes sense and we've seen Saric start second halves or Jerryd Bayless a couple times this season. This is going to be foreign territory for the 76ers because of how J.J. Redick has been out there for most of Joel Embiid minutes. Saric is a nice DFS option.
Oct 28 - 7:44 PM

Dario Saric started the third quarter again on Wednesday, but he finished scoreless (0-of-1 field goals) with two rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes vs. the Rockets.

After halftime, Saric joined a lineup with J.J. Redick, Robert Covington, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, with Jerryd Bayless coming off the bench. It appears to have been a defensive move to prevent Bayless from getting stuck on James Harden, but it's interesting that it's now happened in consecutive games. Whether or not he's starting third quarters, Saric needs substantially more minutes and usage to salvage fantasy value.
Oct 25 - 11:40 PM

Dario Saric was quiet in 23 minutes vs. the Wizards, going 1-of-5 from the field for three points, three rebounds, two assists and one block.

Saric was great in recent preseason games, so we'll give him a pass here. He's likely to continue earning some backup center minutes with Richaun Holmes sidelined, which should prop up his value in most fantasy leagues. Give him a week or two before making any moves.
Oct 18 - 10:08 PM

Dario Saric blew up for 26 points, nine rebounds and three steals in 24 minutes off Philly's bench on Wednesday.

Saric made 10-of-14 shots overall, including a sparkling 5-of-8 from downtown. Brett Brown is experimenting with him as a backup center, due to Richaun Holmes' wrist injury, and things couldn't have gone better for Saric tonight. His ADP has plummeted with Ben Simmons taking over the PF spot this season, but Saric is still a viable late-round option in roto leagues.
Oct 11 - 10:52 PM

Dario Saric scored nine points in his preseason debut vs. Boston on Monday, adding seven rebounds, one assist, one block and one triple in 20 minutes.

The 76ers have been keeping an eye on his workload because he played several games for Croatia at Eurobasket this summer, but he'll be a full go for the regular season opener. He started at power forward in this one and finished 4-of-10 from the field, but didn't log any minutes at center -- coach Brett Brown hinted that Saric could be in the mix at the five while Richaun Holmes (wrist) is out. Saric will likely come off the bench this season as the sixth man, but he's still looking at minutes in the mid-to-high 20s.
