Ben Simmons triple-doubled on Wednesday with 18 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in a massive comeback win vs. the visiting Heat.
He shot 8-of-15 from the field with four steals in 36 minutes. This marks' Simmons sixth triple-double of the season, and at this point he's basically going head-to-head with Donovan Mitchell for Rookie of the Year. The Sixers are in the playoff hunt and they also have the best projected fantasy schedule in Weeks 20-26, so everything is coming up roses for Simmons' owners. Feb 14 - 10:51 PM

Ben Simmons stuffed the stat sheet with 11 points, six rebounds, six assists, four steals and three blocks vs. the Knicks on Monday.

This was his third game of the season with at least three blocks and three steals which leads the NBA -- Giannis Antetokounmpo, Steven Adams and DeMarcus Cousins each have two. Simmons was 6-of-8 from the field and 1-of-2 from the line in 33 minutes while leading the 76ers to their fourth straight win. He's quickly becoming a superstar in fantasy and in real life.
Feb 12 - 10:52 PM

Ben Simmons made 3-of-11 from the field for 10 points with nine rebounds, eight assists, one block and three steals in 25 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

While he did struggle from the field, Simmons made all four of his free throws during this easy win. He's actually shot the ball much better lately, making 71.4 percent from the line over his last five. If Simmons can keep it around 70, that will help his value tremendously in nine-category leagues. That member of the Australian Parliament can add this to his next speech.
Feb 9 - 9:37 PM

Ben Simmons hit 6-of-8 shots for 15 points, six rebounds, eight assists, three steals and a block, and even hit 3-of-5 free throws in Tuesday's win over the Wizards.

He did have five turnovers, but it's hard to fault him for that as much as he has the ball in his hands. And as players continue to drop like flies with injuries throughout the league, Simmons might just find himself on an All-Star Team soon.
Feb 7 - 12:43 AM

Ben Simmons scored 10 points with 11 rebounds, six assists and one steal in 35 minutes during a loss to the Pacers on Saturday.

The good news for Simmons is he didn't turn the ball over for his second straight game, which comes after he turned it over in every game during January with an average of 3.4 per game. The bad news is the 76ers have lost four of their last five games and have the Pistons just 0.5 games behind them. Simmons may also be losing his grip on Rookie of the Year with Dononvan Mitchell going bonkers these days.
Feb 3 - 10:41 PM

Ben Simmons finished with 20 points, six rebounds, five assists and two steals while adding a blocked shot in Friday's 103-97 win against the Heat.

Simmons hit 8-of-13 from the field and he was a perfect 4-of-4 from the line. At one point Josh Richardson was guarding him, but it didn't see to make a difference who was trying to contain him. The rookie was doing his thing, helping out across the board in the team's six-point win. He'll be back at it Saturday in Indiana. He had a triple-double in the last meeting with the Pacers on Nov. 3, posting 14 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, three blocked shots and two steals.
Feb 3 - 12:50 AM

Ben Simmons made 11-of-16 shots to score 24 points on Wednesday, adding seven assists, two rebounds, one steal and just one turnover in 38 minutes.

Simmons has scored double-digit points in 41 games this season, which leads the Sixers and ranks second among rookies behind Lauri Markkanen. He's been better than advertised in fantasy leagues this season, particularly in leagues that don't penalize his turnovers (3.6 per game) and free-throw shooting (61.0% on 3.7 attempts). There's no reason to think that will change in Philly's final 33 games.
Jan 31 - 11:29 PM

Ben Simmons went for 21 points, seven assists, five rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot over 34 minutes in Friday's 97-78 win at San Antonio.

Simmons was nearly flawless, hitting 10-of-11 from the field while adding 1-of-2 from the free-throw line while turning it over three times with a plus-20 rating. While the overall performance was a step back from the triple-double he dropped Wednesday against Chicago, the point total was his most since he dropped 26 points on Jan. 3, also against San Antonio.
Jan 27 - 12:38 AM

Ben Simmons triple-doubled on Wednesday with 19 points, 17 rebounds, 14 assists and two blocks in 39 minutes vs. Chicago, going 6-of-15 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line.

Simmons hauled in 11 boards in the first quarter alone, which were the most for a Philly player in any quarter since Samuel Dalembert in 2010. He got his triple-double faster than any rookie has done it in 20 years, and he's also the first player with multiple trip-dubs vs. the Bulls in a single season since Darrell Walker in 1989-90. We're going to hear plenty more historic parallels for Simmons in the coming years -- if you own him in a dynasty points league, start engraving the trophy now.
Jan 24 - 11:04 PM

Ben Simmons finished with 16 points, nine assist sand eight rebounds over 31 minutes in Saturday's home win against Milwaukee.

Simmons might have had a chance at the triple-double, but the 76ers pulled away in the fourth quarter and the starting five received a well-deserved rest for a good chunk of the final stanza. He bounced back nice after an eight-point dud last time out in Boston on Thursday. Simmons will look to keep it going in Memphis on Monday night against a team allowing 102.1 points per game.
Jan 20 - 10:23 PM

Ben Simmons scored eight points with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and three turnovers in 34 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.

He's been a little overshadowed lately because of rookies like Donovan Mitchell going off, and Simmons' scoring has dropped in every game for 2018. His assists are down, but Simmons continues his Giannis-like output in defensive stats with 2.0 blocks and 1.4 steals over his last five. Expect him to get hot in a hurry and hope that his output at the charity stripe continues to drop -- he's only attempted five freebies in his last four.
Jan 18 - 9:56 PM

Ben Simmons scored 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting Monday to go with four assists, one rebound, two steals, two blocks and six turnovers in Philly's 117-111 win over Toronto.

Simmons came through with some clutch shots down the stretch to ensure the victory for Philly, but he also exchanged some words with Kyle Lowry in the final seconds and got ejected. Simmons and Lowry then reportedly got into an altercation in the hallway after the game, so depending on the severity of that episode, Simmons could potentially be looking at a suspension. Stay tuned.
Jan 15 - 4:21 PM

Ben Simmons scored 19 points with four rebounds, nine assists, two steals, two blocks and four turnovers in 23 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

The 76ers just dominated this game and it was Ben Simmons doing the damage. In almost 16 minutes, Simmons scored 15 points and accounted for another 20 points off his dimes. The low playing time was all about the garbage time, so expect him to get back up to 36 against the Celtics on Jan. 11. Yes, the 76ers have a little break coming up here.
Jan 5 - 9:38 PM

Ben Simmons got to the free-throw line 15 times on Wednesday, making 10 of his attempts to finish with 26 points, five rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block.

It was Simmons' second-highest makes and attempts from the FT line, and he also went 8-of-18 from the field in a win vs. San Antonio. He's had a few rough scoring nights recently, hitting single-digits twice in the past four games, but he got back on track at home after a tiring five-game road trip.
Jan 3 - 9:57 PM

Ben Simmons filled up the boxscore on Sunday with 21 points, nine rebounds, six assists, three steals and three blocks in 32 minutes.

Philly's Rookie-of-the-Year frontrunner made 7-of-11 field goals and 7-of-11 free throws tonight, and the defensive stats continue to buoy his fantasy appeal in a variety of formats. All but one of Simmons' makes came in the restricted area tonight, which is exactly what owners hope to see -- he's shooting 68.2% in the restricted area this season, but a combined 33.2% everywhere else on the court. If he expands his shooting range, the sky is the limit.
