Eric Moreland racked up multiple career-highs on Wednesday with 16 points, 17 rebounds, four assists, four steals and four blocks in 41 minutes of action.
Moreland was filling in for Andre Drummond (Achilles) in the Pistons' final game of the season, and he took full advantage of the extra run, resulting in his second career double-double. The rebounds and defensive stats probably won some matchups for owners who streamed him, and it's a terrific way to end his season. Assuming the Pistons guarantee his $1.8 million salary, though, it'll be hard to find daylight in the frontcourt. Apr 11 - 10:31 PM

Eric Moreland getting the start vs. the Bulls on Wednesday.

Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin are not playing in this game, so there are a lot of frontcourt minutes available. Henry Ellenson should still see a ton of minutes off the bench, especially with the Bulls having a smaller second unit.
Apr 11 - 7:25 PM

Eric Moreland started on Monday and had 11 points, seven rebounds, two steals and a block on 5-of-6 shooting in 32 minutes.

He had a double-double earlier this season, but the 11 points are a season high. Andre Drummond was out with an achilles injury and if he sits out Wednesday's finale and Moreland starts again, he'll be worth a look in fantasy on the final day of the season.
Apr 9 - 9:20 PM

Eric Moreland will start Monday vs. the Raptors, with Andre Drummond (Achilles) unavailable.

Joining Moreland in the starting five will be Reggie Jackson, Luke Kennard, Stanley Johnson and Anthony Tolliver. In Moreland's previous start this season, he finished with eight points, eight boards, four dimes, two steals and a block, so he could be someone to think about streaming.

Eric Moreland grabbed 10 rebounds with four points, three assists, two blocks and one steal vs. the Nets on Sunday.

Moreland played 23 minutes off the bench and his role increased late because Andre Drummond was ejected for a scuffle with Quincy Acy. It's doubtful that Drummond will face any more punishment from the league, though, so this doesn't impact Moreland's role unless Detroit eventually rests their All-Star center.
Apr 1 - 8:57 PM

Eric Moreland recorded his first career double-double on Wednesday with 10 points, 12 rebounds and six assists in 21 minutes off the Pistons bench.

Two words are sufficient to explain Moreland's outburst tonight -- garbage time. The scoring, rebounds and assists were all career-highs, and five of Moreland's dimes came with the game already decided in the fourth quarter. This is worth remembering, but shouldn't prompt anyone to pick him up.
Feb 28 - 11:38 PM

Coach Stan Van Gundy said that he plans to give Eric Moreland additional playing time going forward, as the Pistons play six games over the next nine days.

Van Gundy said he "wants to give Drummond and Griffin a break and spread the minutes around." Moreland is averaging 1.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 11.1 minutes per game this season. Even if he sees 15-plus minutes a night over the next two weeks, that's not enough to make an impact in fantasy. He should be left on waivers.
Feb 24 - 1:39 PM

Eric Moreland set a career-high with five assists on Saturday, adding three points and five rebounds in 14 minutes off the bench.

Moreland had two turnovers but generally looked good, and he made some smart passes from the high post tonight. This will help him hold off Boban Marjanovic (DNP-CD) for backup-center minutes, but he's not a fantasy asset while Andre Drummond is healthy.
Jan 13 - 11:48 PM

Eric Moreland played nine minutes off the bench on Monday, going scoreless with two rebounds, one assist and one block.

Moreland made a fill-in start on Saturday for Andre Drummond (ribs), but he predictably saw his role dwindle with Drummond back in action tonight. He belongs on the wire.
Jan 8 - 11:45 PM

Eric Moreland scored eight points with eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 36 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

The Rockets did pull a Hack-A-Moreland in the fourth, but it didn't work with him making both. Andre Drummond (rib) is only day-to-day and Moreland doesn't have much upside despite what this stat line says. We'd rather add Boban over Moreland here.
Jan 6 - 11:14 PM

Eric Moreland will start on Saturday against the Rockets.

Coach Stan Van Gundy doesn't like Boban Marjanovic out there against floor-spacing teams, so that explains this one. Moreland is still a risky play and you could say the same for Boban.
Jan 6 - 6:56 PM

Eric Moreland did not score in 12 minutes on Friday against the 76ers with five rebounds and one assist.

In the first quarter, Boban Marjanovic did leapfrog him, but Moreland got the garbage time. The fantasy world will be rooting for Boban to stay ahead of Moreland.
Jan 5 - 9:23 PM

Eric Moreland logged 18 minutes during Wednesday's loss in Miami, going scoreless with five rebounds and one steal.

Andre Drummond (ribs) was out tonight, so Moreland picked up minutes behind starter Boban Marjanovic, but Drummond could return as soon as Friday. Moreland has now failed to score in four straight games, which about sums up his non-existent fantasy appeal.
Jan 4 - 12:12 AM

Eric Moreland (illness) was absent from morning shootaround but is expected to play Tuesday vs. Denver.

Moreland is averaging just 1.2 points and 3.1 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per game backing up Andre Drummond this season.
Tue, Dec 12, 2017 12:38:00 PM

Eric Moreland didn't take any shots on Friday with three rebounds, two turnovers and three fouls in 12 minutes against the Wizards.

He's currently the No. 2 center with Boban Marjanovic getting an inactive today. Boban DFS support group meets on Thursday. Punch and pie will be served. As for Moreland, he won't play enough to have value in almost any league.
