Giannis Antetokounmpo went berserk during a 111-93 win over the Nets on Thursday, scoring 23 points with eight rebounds, eight assists, four steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in just 30 minutes.

The steals numbers are off the charts and it's moved Giannis to No. 3 in steals per game while he's also fifth in blocks per outing. Antetokounmpo made a season-high two treys in this game and hit his first corner trey, which make have lead to some post-game talk on his shooting. After the game, Giannis said he's been invited to work out with Dirk Nowitzki next summer and Giannis also talked about his shot. "My main focus is to shoot without hesitating," Antetokounmpo said. "That's my main focus right now. I don't care if it goes in or it goes out. I just shoot. I have nothing to lose. Just let it fly." If he develops a strong shot, no team is safe.

Jabari Parker scored 22 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one turnover and one foul in 29 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

He went right at the smaller Sean Kilpatrick throughout this game. Parker still hasn't quite turned the corner as a jump shooter, making just 35.6 percent of those on the year. Although before tonight., his added 3-pointers have bumped up his catch-and-shoot efficiency by 17.1 effective field goal percentage points compared to last year. He's going to be an offense force and should flirt with top-50 value.

Tony Snell - G/F - Bucks

Tony Snell scored 13 points with five rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

He's been a somewhat reliable shooter with at least one 3-pointer in all but one November game. Snell played 30.1 minutes per game in November, averaging 9.5 points, 4.4 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.5 steals and 1.8 treys. His 14.0 usage rate on the season indicates his limited upside.
Dec 1 - 11:43 PM

Matthew Dellevedova scored nine points with four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

He's seen a slight dip in minutes due to how he's missing shots and how Malcom Brogdon is playing well. In his last seven, Dellavedova made just 33.3 percent from the field, including just 26.7 percent on his two-point shots. He does still have some value because of his dimes and steals, but he's a drop candidate to get a hotter free agent.
Dec 1 - 11:39 PM

Malcolm Brogdon scored 13 points with four rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

It's just the second time this season Brogdon has seen more playing time than Matthew Dellavedova -- garbage time was a factor for both, though. Brogdon is playing some very good basketball these days with double-digit scoring in each of his last three. He's quickly creeping into the 16-team mix and climbing.
Dec 1 - 11:31 PM

John Henson played 25 minutes against the Nets on Thursday with 12 points, eight rebounds, one assist and five blocks.

Believe it or not, we may actually have a consistent role for Henson. He's played at least 21 minutes in each of his last three games, averaging 13.0 points, 8.0 boards, 1.3 assists and 3.3 blocks. This does come with a grain of salt because the matchups have helped Henson, but his block rate is just too good to leave on the wire in any standard-style league.
Dec 1 - 10:06 PM

Michael Beasley scored 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting on Tuesday vs. the Cavaliers.

He added two rebounds, two assists, two steals and one triple in a season-high 26 minutes. Beasley took some minutes away from Tony Snell and Mirza Teletovic (DNP-CD), and he's scored in double digits in back-to-back games for the first time this season. However, he's a one-trick pony in fantasy and won't really help you outside of the scoring column. Leave him on the wire in standard leagues.
Nov 29 - 11:19 PM

Greg Monroe scored 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and three turnovers against the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

John Henson (21 minutes) started again and Miles Plumlee (two minutes) was out of the rotation, so Monroe is trending in the right direction. It looks like he may form a timeshare at the center position with Henson, but it's hard to believe that this was the first time in his last seven games that he eclipsed the 20-minute mark. His owners will be hoping the Bucks trade him out of Milwaukee sooner rather than later.
Nov 29 - 11:14 PM

John Henson made his second straight start on Tuesday vs. the Cavaliers and played well, scoring seven points on 3-of-7 shooting with nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 21 minutes.

Greg Monroe logged 26 minutes off the bench and it looks like he and Henson will be splitting the center minutes on most nights -- Miles Plumlee played just a couple minutes. Coach Jason Kidd can be unpredictable with his rotations, but Henson is coming off a 20-point effort with seven boards, three blocks, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes against the Magic on Sunday, so feel free to grab him off the wire if you need blocks and boards.
Nov 29 - 11:08 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo matched his career-high with 34 points on 13-of-19 shooting in a 118-101 win over the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

He posted a monster line with 12 rebounds, five assists, five steals, two blocks, one triple and six turnovers, hitting 7-of-10 from the line. He's also outscored LeBron James in three out of his last four matchups with the Finals MVP. The 21-year-old superstar will be a top-five fantasy play the rest of the way
Nov 29 - 11:03 PM

Khris Middleton (hamstring) said that he's still hopeful of returning at some point this season.

"I’ve been doing some shooting; I’m just trying to get back into a little shooting form,’’ Middleton said. "I’m doing a lot of mid-range shooting, maybe with one or two dribbles. I’m just trying to move around. Nothing strenuous." The Bucks gave him a timetable of sixth months after he had surgery on his left hamstring, so if that timetable holds up it means he could play in the final 13 games of the season. There are obviously no guarantees, so Middleton is going to be very tough to stash in leagues without IR slots.
Nov 28 - 10:30 AM

Jabari Parker shot 3-of-8 from the field to finish Sunday's road win with nine points, seven rebounds and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

It's the first time all season that Parker hasn't scored double-digit points, and he also went without any defensive stats for the second straight game. Those aren't lasting concerns and he's on pace for career-high numbers in almost every single category this season. Parker is returning top-60 roto value and shows no signs of taking his foot off the gas pedal.
Nov 27 - 9:52 PM

Greg Monroe served as John Henson's backup on Sunday, scoring 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 17 minutes.

After playing 19 minutes on Friday, Monroe managed to stick in the rotation despite Jason Kidd's ever-changing whims. His per-minute production has been great but as long as his minutes are in the teens it's hard to deploy him in 12-team leagues. The waiting game continues for his owners.
Nov 27 - 9:51 PM

Malcolm Brogdon fell just shy of his season high in scoring on Sunday, chipping in 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and a pair of 3-pointers.

Brogdon did his damage in 20 minutes and his ability to knock down 3-pointers is critical to his fantasy appeal, not to mention his playing time. He's shooting just 37.2 percent from the field this season, and under 30 percent from deep, but is a combined 4-of-5 in his past two games. Deep-league owners should keep an eye on him.
Nov 27 - 9:51 PM

Miles Plumlee fell from the starting lineup on Sunday and wound up going scoreless in just three minutes off the bench.

We warned against picking up Plumlee despite his recent starting gig, and this is exactly why. Jason Kidd's center rotation has been chaotic all year and he appears no closer to settling it down, which will likely result in night-to-night fluctuations. As far as Plumlee is concerned, this is a situation to avoid.
