Giannis Antetokounmpo scored just nine points on 3-of-8 from the field against the Pacers on Saturday, adding five rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 29 minutes.
Even with the sub-par scoring, he still managed a solid line with defense and boards. The Cavs still couldn't keep Antetokounmpo out of the paint with all but one shot coming inside of six feet, but they defended him better than most teams. He's trending up as an offensive talent and hopefully the Bucks run the offense through him more. The Greek Freak should flirt with top-50 value on the year with a huge ceiling in a couple seasons.

Giannis Antetokounmpo went off for a career-high 33 points against the Cavs on Thursday, adding five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He was 12-of-15 from the field, made all eight attempts from the line and didn't even turn the ball over at all for a ridiculously efficient night. It looked like the NBA was figuring out Antetokounmpo, but he pulled out some new post moves and just feasted around the basket with nine makes at the rim tonight. He's a special young talent.

Giannis Antetokounmpo made 3-of-13 from the field for nine points against the Wizards on Tuesday, adding five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

Teams are starting to smarten up on Giannis and they're not closing out as hard on him for his jumpers. After making at least 46 percent from the field in all of his eight games to start the year, Antetokounmpo has been below 34 percent in each of his last two. On the other hand, he's still stuffing the stat sheet in other areas. He's probably not going to be quite as good with his third-round value, but he should be near top 50 going forward.
Nov 17 - 9:52 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo made 6-of-18 from the field for 16 points with 11 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 45 minutes against the Cavs during a double-overtime win.

It's the first game he's shot below 46 percent from the field. The good news is he had season highs in blocks and boards. He's having a wonderful third season and should be a top-50 player this season with second-round upside.
Nov 15 - 12:27 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 12 points during a 103-102 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, five assists, two blocks and three turnovers.

Giannis is sitting at a 23.5 usage rate on the season -- his usage rate was actually higher before MCW went down, too. His efficiency has really spiked this season while he's doing a good job on the glass and is on pace for a career-high in steals. He looks like he's in for a breakout season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo's offensive growth continued on Wednesday, as he made 7-of-11 from the field for 17 points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes.

When it comes to scoring, he knows what he wants and knows how to get it. Antetokounmpo has a whopping 77.6 percent of his shots inside of the paint this season and he's also made a terrific 4-of-8 from beyond the arc in his four games to get him to a 67.2 true shooting percentage and a 24.1 usage rate. The third-year offensive breakout is real, and it's spectacular.
Nov 5 - 12:34 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo had another big game for owners on Monday against the Nets, scoring 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting with one trey, eight boards, three assists and two blocks.

Giannis was among the more hyped players over the last year and then a quiet preseason made him somewhat affordable on draft day. He has been repaying owners early on and with an unknown ceiling everybody should be holding tight.
Nov 3 - 12:14 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 20 points against the Raptors on Sunday with nine rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

He is off to a terrific start on offense, making 63.0 percent from the field for averages of 23.5 points, 9.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.0 treys. Antetokounmpo has taken just two shots in the mid-range and is starting to figure out how to be more efficient.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (suspension) made his season debut in the Bucks' 118-113 loss to the Wizards on Friday, scoring 27 points on 9-of-15 shooting (1-of-3 3PTs, 8-of-10 FTs) with nine rebounds, two assists, three steals and six turnovers in 34 minutes.

For a guy that has been incessantly hyped on the Internet, Antetokounmpo started to slide in drafts after a quiet preseason. Here's the slingshot effect at its best. It should be a fairly bumpy ride but the upside is through the roof, and owners have to be thrilled with the across-the-board output.
Oct 31 - 1:50 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo will return to the lineup on Friday against the Wizards after serving his one-game suspension on Wednesday.

"In moments I was feeling a little bit emotional that I wasn't there," Antetokounmpo said in regards to missing Wednesday's game. "I was feeling a little bit sick." The Greek Freak sounds like he is motivated to make an impact in his 2015-16 season debut, and his owners can safely activate him off their bench.
Oct 30 - 10:18 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (suspension) will not play vs. the Knicks on Wednesday.

The Greek Freak will have to wait until Friday's game against the Wizards to make his 2015-16 season debut. With O.J. Mayo (hamstring) and Jabari Parker (knee) also out, Rashad Vaughn and Grevis Vasquz should see a boost in minutes off the bench.
Oct 28 - 10:42 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo exploded off the bench on Friday, scoring 23 points with seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks in 33 minutes.

Coach Jason Kidd brought him off the bench to mix things up. Antetokounmpo isn't shooting 3-pointers quite as much as expected, but he's blocked at least two shots in each of his last three. This big line to end his preseason probably won't help his ADP. Everyone loves the Greek Freak because he's so much fun to own, but just don't spend an early-round pick on him.

Jason Kidd said that Giannis Antetokounmpo will play all five positions for the Bucks this season.

"He's 20 years old and he's going to play every position for us," Kidd said. "He never complains. He just goes out there and plays. I think he's showing he's confident in shooting the three. He's confident while he's on the floor and he's doing a lot of good things for us." Point-Giannis didn't work out very well last season, but Kidd isn't backing off on deploying the 20-year-old at all five positions. Basically this translates to Giannis will be playing massive minutes in Milwaukee, and if he is able to knock down that 3-point shot consistently, his fantasy value will be much improved. He's well worth a mid-round selection on draft day.
Oct 22 - 5:20 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (illness) did not practice on Friday.

There is a chance he is out against the Wizards on Saturday. Antetokounmpo is off to a slow start and he's only attempted one 3-pointer in his 43 minutes of action this preseason, so that storyline is losing a little bit of steam -- he did make just 15.9 percent from deep last year. He's worth a look in the middle rounds.
Oct 16 - 3:18 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (rest) won't play Tuesday night agains the Cavs.

Alphabet's absence on Tuesday is nothing for fantasy owners to worry about as he's just getting a rest day, per head coach Jason Kidd. As long as he stays healthy, the 20-year-old is primed to continue his breakout trajectory and should be considered in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.
