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. Nov 27 - 11:12 AM

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.

He's a rebounding machine right now and is averaging 10.8 points, 12.4 rebounds and 1.6 blocks over his last five games, despite tonight's scoring dud.
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.
Nov 8 - 3:50 AM

Tyson Chandler missed both his shots and hit 4-of-4 free throws for four points, four rebounds and three blocks in 29 minutes on Thursday.

That's too many minutes for Chandler to not produce, especially in a blowout game. Chandler is simply not an offensive player, and while he's not set to lose his job, he's not a guy who should be in starting lineups for fantasy players on most nights.
Nov 7 - 1:41 AM

Tyson Chandler logged his first double-double of the season against the Celtics on Monday with 10 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks in 30 minutes.

Surprisingly, he's scored in double figures for three consecutive games. The former Defensive Player of the Year isn't the greatest weapon on offense, but he's a plus option as a roll man in pick-and-roll sets. As long as he's blocking shots, he'll be worth starting in all standard formats.
Nov 4 - 1:06 AM

Tyson Chandler made all five attempts from the field for 13 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

Garbage time was a factor tonight and he did have some foul trouble in the opener, so he should be above his 26.5 minutes per game. Chandler is more of a three-category guy in fantasy for boards, blocks and field goal percentage.
Oct 31 - 1:57 AM

Tyson Chandler played fantastic in a loss against the Spurs on Tuesday, scoring eight points on 4-of-8 shooting with 10 rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes.

He did suffer a lower back injury and briefly left the game, but did return and appeared fine. Chandler was very active tonight and was a huge factor for Dallas on the boards. He struggled with foul trouble, which explains the low minutes, so he should be able to improve upon these numbers as the season progresses.
Oct 28 - 11:08 PM

Tyson Chandler (rest) is out for Saturday's exhibition game.

He has been decent so far in preseason but the Mavs will sit him down tonight for some extra rest. Apart from rebounds and blocks, Chandler doesn't do much else in the box score. Still, he is worth a selection in the early-late rounds of standard leagues.
Oct 18 - 6:31 PM

Tyson Chandler debuted for the Mavs (again) on Tuesday and had 10 points, six rebounds and a block in just 14 minutes on Tuesday.

Chandler is psyched to be back in Dallas and Mavs fans feel the same way, showering him with love tonight. He's going to board and block, but a lack of scoring is a concern if you're thinking about drafting him this season.
