Tyson Chandler scored just eight points, but had 14 rebounds and a block in 25 minutes of Tuesday's blowout win over his former team, the Knicks.

He played well in the revenge game, but honestly, probably felt sorry for them. He also played just 25 minutes due to a lopsided score, or he might have had a 20-rebound night.

Tyson Chandler scored 11 points with 12 rebounds and two turnovers in 31 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

More importantly, Marreese Speights lost his shoe and while Stephen Curry tried to pass it back to him during the game, Chandler swatted it. As far as actual basketball goes, Chandler has been superb with his new-old team and is rapport with Monta Ellis is uncanny. He's an elite fantasy center and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Tyson Chandler missed his only shot attempt on Tuesday, finishing scoreless with nine boards, one assist and two blocks in 32 minutes vs. the Grizzlies.

Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph are an imposing matchup for anyone, which gives some understandable context for Chandler's dud. He's been phenomenal all year, as his fantasy owners will attest, and should bounce back quickly during Wednesday's home game.
Dec 9 - 10:37 PM

Tyson Chandler stayed hot against the Bucks on Wednesday with 18 points, 20 rebounds, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

He is one of the hottest big men on the planet right now. In the two weeks leading up to this game, Chandler was the No. 17 player in standard leagues and he has turned in gem after gem. His fantasy owners might want to consider selling high given his injury history, but he looks like an unbelievable fit with Dallas again.
Dec 4 - 12:47 AM

Tyson Chandler was just too much for the 76ers on Saturday during a 110-103 win with 20 points, 13 boards, three assists and four steals in 32 minutes.

His ability to beat teams in pick-and-roll has been a huge part of his success. Chandler and Monta Ellis are on the same page on offense and it's led to the big man posting four double-doubles in his last five, averaging 13.4 points, 14.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.0 steals on 68.4 percent from the field. He obviously likes playing in Dallas.

Dirk Nowitzki said he and his Mavericks teammates wanted to win Wednesday's game against the Knicks for Tyson Chandler.

Chandler was quick to downplay Wednesday's matchup against his former team, but Nowitzki said Mavericks wanted to win the game for their center. "We were actually talking about before the game that we had to shoot him with a tranquilizer gun to slow him down a little bit," Dirk Nowitzki said. "He was obviously amped up for this one. And we wanted to get this one for him." This was likely Chandler's high-water mark for the season, but his fantasy owners can still look forward a potential double-double every time the 32-year-old steps on the court.

Tyson Chandler hauled in a season-high 25 rebounds on Wednesday, while making 7-of-12 shots to finish with 17 points, one steal and two blocks in 43 minutes vs. the Knicks.

Chandler was three boards shy of his career high and New York simply had no answer for him in the paint. "You can't always try to outscore the other team every single night," Chandler said before the game. "Some nights, you're going to rely on your defense." He did it all in this game, grabbing 10 of his boards on the offensive end, and he's been an absolute steal for fantasy owners through the Mavs' first 16 games.

Tyson Chandler said he felt like a scapegoat for the New York Knicks' failures last season.

"At times, at times, at times," Chandler said when asked if he felt like a scapegoat. "But I feel like New York made me a lot stronger, a lot stronger of a person going through trials and tribulations there. But that's life." Chandler is having a strong start to the 2014-15 regular season and should be fixture in fantasy owners' lineups for his nightly double-double potential.

Tyson Chandler posted 13 points and 13 rebounds on Saturday, making 5-of-7 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs in 26 typically efficient minutes of action.

Chandler tweaked his ankle by stepping on teammate J.J. Barea's foot while walking to the Mavs' bench during a timeout, but he confirmed after the game that he's fine. He has six double-doubles this season and has barely missed a few more while appearing in each of the Mavs' first 14 games, which is all that his fantasy owners could have asked for on draft day.
Nov 22 - 11:58 PM

Tyson Chandler scored just five points, but added 16 rebounds, a steal and three blocks in Wednesday's win over the Wizards.

Nov 20 - 12:21 AM

Tyson Chandler made all seven shots from the field for 14 points against the Hornets on Monday during a 107-80 win, adding nine rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes.

The Mavericks are just ridiculous on offense right now as one of the most efficient offenses in the history of the NBA. Chandler has made at least 71 percent of his shots from the field in each of his last three games and he also has three double-doubles in his last five. He is a very hot property in fantasy right now and has turned in second-round value over the past two weeks.
Nov 17 - 10:55 PM

Tyson Chandler scored 12 points with 16 boards, two assists and three blocks in just 24 minutes.

The Mavericks just owned the paint tonight with 76 in-the-paint points. Chandler has thrived in pick-and-roll and has seen his scoring go up, averaging 13.2 points, 13.0 boards, 1.4 assists and 1.4 blocks on 68.4 percent from the field over his last five. This might be one of his higher points of the season.
Nov 16 - 1:43 AM

Tyson Chandler had a massive double-double on Sunday and finished with 16 points, 15 boards, two assists, and one block in 30 minutes.

He was the best player on the floor for Dallas tonight, as the undersized Heat had no answer for him on the glass. Chandler has been solid this season and will continue to be a double-double force for the Mavs if he can stay healthy.
Nov 9 - 10:28 PM

Tyson Chandler set season-highs for both scoring and rebounding on Friday, finishing with 15 points, 13 rebounds and one block.

So far, so good for Chandler and his owners, as the late-round pick is returning mid-round value early on. As long as he can stay healthy owners can expect that to continue.
