Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 23 points in Friday's 121-85 win over the Hawks, shooting 9-of-20 from the field in 30 minutes
KCP is from Georgia and also went to school there, so he put on a show in front of his family and friends. He added eight rebounds, one steal and five triples, and he's one of the hottest SGs in the East right now, averaging 18.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 3.0 triples on 45.3 percent shooting over his last five games.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope looked great on Wednesday, posting 25 points, five rebounds and four assists in 35 minutes during a road win in Boston.

KCP made 10-of-17 shots with two 3-pointers, one steal, one block and just one turnover. In the past five days he's had games with 10 assists, seven assists, and then four assists tonight, a new wrinkle that he can hopefully sustain once Reggie Jackson returns to the starting lineup. KCP is proving himself to be more than a 3-point specialist, and he should be owned in all leagues.
Nov 30 - 10:37 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit 6-of-14 shots for 18 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal, and one block in Tuesday’s win against the Hornets.

Caldwell-Pope was three assists and three rebounds shy of a triple-double and continues to shoot the ball well from beyond the arc. He made four 3-pointers on Tuesday and has drained 13 from beyond the arc in the last five games. He remains a solid contributor in 3-pointers, steals, and is averaging a career-high 2.7 assists per game this season. Fantasy owners should be content with his production thus far this season.
Nov 29 - 9:52 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 10 points with two rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 34 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

He didn't start the second half tonight and it didn't look like he was on the bench to start it either, but Caldwell-Pope did get back on the court with 9:33 left in the third. It doesn't appear to be injury related, so continue to start KCP as a mid-to-late round asset in standard leagues.
Nov 26 - 11:05 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope dished out a career-high 10 assists vs. the Clippers on Friday, while scoring 16 points on 5-of-11 shooting with four 3-pointers.

KCP connected with Andre Drummond on multiple lobs at the rim, which was a very good look for the Pistons offense. He's a favorite of coach Stan Van Gundy and we're not reading into his recent dip in playing time -- he logged 29 or fewer minutes in three recent games, but is still at 33.0 for the season.
Nov 25 - 10:10 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 26 points with one rebound, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Rockets.

He got the ol' Houston bump here against James Harden and Co. Caldwell-Pope is coming off two awful games with just 13 points combined. KCP hasn't really done much, but his two treys per game and solid steals have made him close to a top-100 player. He's a fine low-end hold.
Nov 22 - 12:38 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope fell victim to some vicious defense from Avery Bradley on Saturday, going 1-of-7 from the field and ending his night with just four points, one triple, one steal, one block and one turnover in 28 minutes.

That’s two stinkers in a row. KCP can be hit-or-miss, and his 37.9 percent shooting percentage isn't doing his owners in 9-cat and 8-cat leagues any favors. He’s a much more attractive guy to own in points leagues.
Nov 19 - 10:05 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit 9-of-22 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, four boards and three assists in Wednesday's loss.

He's rolling right now, averaging 17.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.4 3-pointers on 40 percent shooting over his last five games. If he was shooting it better, he'd flirt with becoming an elite shooting guard, at least for now.
Nov 17 - 7:25 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 10 points with seven assists, three boards and two treys vs. the Spurs on Friday.

He was just 3-of-9 from the field and continues to be one of the streakiest shooters in the NBA. With that said, he has no competition for minutes and is currently returning ninth-round value in standard leagues with averages of 12.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.0 triples per game, shooting 39.0 percent from the field.
Nov 12 - 1:01 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored a season-high 27 points against the Suns on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, one assist, one steal, one turnover and five 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

Coach Stan Van Gundy played KCP for the entire second half because his shooting guard was easily his best player. SVG has kept his word for the most part to keep Caldwell-Pope's minutes down a bit, averaging 32.5 per game. Although, the Pistons have been involved in a lot of blowouts both ways, so KCP is more of a 36-37 minutes guy in close games. He's holding mid-round value and should be a low-end hold in standard leagues.
Nov 10 - 1:24 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed all six of his shots on Monday vs. the Clippers, finishing with one point and one rebound in 23 minutes.

KCP’s as streaky as they come, but to be fair the entire Detroit roster was ice cold tonight. KCP was averaging 17.0 points per game in his previous four, so his owners should cut him some slack. He gets a date with the 2-5 Suns on Wednesday.
Nov 8 - 1:21 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope struggled with his shot on Wednesday, going 4-of-14 from the field, but he still finished with 15 points, seven boards, four steals, two assists and two 3-pointers.

KCP worried some owners by playing just 24 minutes in Detroit's second game, but that was a blowout-induced result -- in the three games since he's averaging 18.3 points in 35.0 minutes. With the ability to contribute points, 3-pointers and steals with strong FT percentages, he's a fine addition to most fantasy rosters.
Nov 2 - 10:28 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope stayed hot on Tuesday, knocking down 7-of-11 shots and four 3-pointers for 19 points, three rebounds, three assists and a steal in Tuesday's easy win over the Knicks.

He had 21 with two 3-pointers on Sunday so his early-season struggles are now behind him. Hopefully he can stay hot and keep knocking down threes.
Nov 1 - 11:01 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored a season-high 21 points on Sunday, hitting 7-of-13 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and zero turnovers.

KCP's previous season-high was just five points, and his owners can take a deep breath after this performance. He shot 32.5 percent from deep last year but is a combined 2-of-11 this year, so it's only a matter of time before the shots start falling. He's not particularly versatile, but KCP is worth considering as a cheap source of scoring, 3-pointers and steals.
Oct 30 - 8:35 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope struggled vs. the Magic on Friday with five points (2-of-5 FGS), one rebound, one assist and two steals in 24 minutes.

He missed all three of his 3-point attempts and he's going to be prone to nights like these. KCP also struggled in the season opener with four points in 39 minutes, but he will eventually figure things out -- he averaged 14.5 points, 1.5 treys and 1.4 steals in 2015-16, so he's still a hold for now.
