Simmons didn't hit a 3-pointer, missed 3-of-4 free throws and committed four turnovers, proving he's human. The kid's a beast, is the consensus for Rookie of the Year, and has helped the Sixers get off to a 9-7 start to the season. Nov 20 - 9:59 PM

Ben Simmons made 11-of-15 from the field for 23 points with eight rebounds, 12 assists and one steal during a 124-116 loss to the Warriors on Saturday.

The 76ers were incredible in the first quarter with 47 points, but the Warriors returned the favor and then some with a 47-15 edge in the third. Not even the Warriors could limit Simmons because of his size, and he received a lot of praise from Kevin Durant after the game. "Something I've never seen before," Durant said. "[Playing the point guard] with that height, that speed and that strength." Simmons is also like something we've never seen from a fantasy rookie. He has Rookie of the Year in the bag as long as he plays 60 games.

Ben Simmons had another impactful game against the Lakers on Wednesday, scoring 18 points with nine rebounds, 10 assists, five steals and one block in 39 minutes.

He and Joel Embiid are already one of the most dominating duos in the Eastern Conference. In their 266 minutes together, they have a +13.8 net rating and it feels like they're on their way to the postseason. Not coincidently, the 76ers have turned it on with a 7-2 record in their last nine games and Simmons has filled the stat sheet like few others with averages of 18.6 points, 8.8 boards, 7.9 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.0 blocks in that span. He's still made just four shots outside of 15 feet on the year, but who cares? His upside is Giannis-esque.
Nov 16 - 2:15 AM

Ben Simmons had 22 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and five turnovers on 9-of-14 shooting in Monday's big win over the Clippers.

Yes, his turnovers are a buzzkill, but he's steamrolling toward the Rookie of the Year Award (assuming he can hold off Donovan Mitchell and Dennis Smith Jr.), and is averaging a ridiculous 16.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.4 blocks on 45 percent shooting over his last five. Baller.

Ben Simmons had 13 points, five rebounds, eight assists and two steals on 6-of-17 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Warriors.

Simmons is just fine. He had four turnovers tonight, which is to be expected, but he's still a fantasy monster despite tonight's line. Can you say Rookie of the Year?
Nov 12 - 12:14 AM

Ben Simmons scored 18 points with two rebounds, six assists and two steals in 27 minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

He had some foul trouble in this game and picked up his fourth foul with 10:43 left in the third quarter. Somewhat shockingly, this was the first time Simmons was under 33 minutes in his NBA career and he likely would've been right at his usual 36 minutes had he avoided foul trouble. The heavy favorite for ROY is also up to 75.0 percent from the line this month and he's racking up the dunks to buoy his field goal percentage. If he ever gets a jumper, the sky is the limit.
Nov 10 - 12:47 AM

Brett Brown has been impressed with how good Ben Simmons has been to open the 2017-18 season.

"I didn’t realize that he was going to be as gifted athletically, immediately," Brown said. "I see it clearly now. You wished and you hoped, but you didn’t know... the realization is this organization has something very unique we hope for a very long time." Simmons has hit the ground running this season, posting top-60 value in 9-cat leagues behind averages of 17.8 points, 10.1 boards, 8.0 dimes, 1.7 steals, 0.9 blocks and 3.7 turnovers per contest, and he shows no signs of slowing down.
Nov 8 - 10:48 AM

Ben Simmons was a monster in Tuesday's 104-97 win over the Jazz, racking up 16 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, three steals and three blocks in 36 minutes.

He was 7-of-22 from the field with six turnovers, but hit both of his free throws and carried the 76ers with Joel Embiid resting, as he matched his career-highs in blocks, steals and rebounds. His usage rate rises from 21.1 to 28.4 with Embiid off the floor, so DFS owners should keep that in mind the next time The Process sits out. Simmons will be a triple-double threat every time he touches the floor and is the heavy favorite for Rookie of the Year.
Nov 8 - 12:20 AM

Ben Simmons posted his second career triple-double during a 121-110 win over the Pacers on Friday, scoring 14 points with 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and three blocks in 39 minutes.

He's off to one of the fastest stat-stuffing starts in NBA history and joins Oscar Robertson as the only players to post multiple trip-dubs in their first nine games. Las Vegas actually had the over/under on Big Ben triple-doubles at just 0.5 on the season, so he is just shattering expectations. Simmons also went 4-of-4 for his first perfect free throw game of his career and he matched his career total in blocks today. Trust the process, raise the cat or whatever you want to do, but make sure you watch one of the most fun teams in the NBA.
Nov 3 - 10:48 PM

Ben Simmons nearly triple-doubled on Wednesday vs. the Hawks with 19 points, 13 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and four turnovers in 34 minutes.

He's healthy, he's playing big minutes and the 76ers look like a potential playoff team in the East, so Simmons' owners are loving life. As for the rookie himself, he still thinks he has a lot more to offer. "I thought I’d be playing better, honestly," he said. "I need to pick it up. It’s awesome [being in the NBA]. I wouldn’t want to do anything else. I love what I do. I’m just grateful to be here, just got to keep working."

The 76ers have exercised their team option on Ben Simmons.

They also picked up their options on Dario Saric, Timothe Luwawu, and Justin Anderson, all easy decisions for the Philadelphia franchise. Simmons has gotten off to a great start this year with averages of 18.4 points, 9.1 boards, 7.7 dimes, 1.4 steals and 3.1 turnovers per game on 53.5 percent shooting, so he's definitely in the discussion for Rookie of the Year.

Ben Simmons scored a career-high 24 points (10-15 FGs, 4-9 FTs) to go with seven rebounds and nine assists over 38 minutes in a 115-107 win against the Rockets on Monday.

He's been incredibly efficient from the field, but that's because he's not taking many jumpers. Simmons is working on expanding his range, but he'll keep playing to his strengths while he develops it on the practice floor. His free throw shooting is his biggest concern (for fantasy), but his owners are still loving life as Simmons is averaging 18.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 1.4 steals through seven games.
Oct 30 - 11:30 PM

Ben Simmons dominated in a 112-110 win over the Mavs on Saturday, scoring 23 points with seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.

He is just unfair and coaches are probably losing sleep on how to match up with him at the point. "Everybody knew he was gonna be good, but he's way better than expected," Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. Much like Giannis Antetokounmpo, teams can't keep Simmons out of the paint. This season, he has 52.4 percent of his shots at the rim, making 65.9 percent of those. He does have some holes in his game, but he will be posting some enormous lines in DFS and points leagues.
Oct 29 - 12:24 AM

The Sixers blew a late lead on Wednesday, despite Ben Simmons' 14 points, nine assists, seven rebounds, three steals and one block in 34 minutes.

Simmons is stuffing the stat sheet like few others to begin his career, with his double-doubles and triple-doubles putting him in the same sentence, statistically, as guys like Shaquille O'Neal and Oscar Robertson. He committed four turnovers tonight and wasn't very efficient (7-of-17 FGs, 0-of-2 FTs), but it's still all sunshine for his fantasy owners.
Oct 25 - 11:41 PM

Ben Simmons posted his first career triple-double in just his fourth NBA game, scoring 21 points with 12 rebounds and 10 assists in Monday's 97-86 win over the Pistons.

This was his best game by far, posting career-highs in points, rebounds and assists with one steal and four turnovers. He was very efficient, hitting 8-of-11 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line and his pick-and-roll chemistry with Joel Embiid was on point. Simmons became just the third player in NBA history to have a triple-double in his first four games and also the first player to go 10-10-5 in each of the first four since the Big O (Oscar Robertson).
