  • Player Notes
    Zach LaVine Mar 18 1:20pm ET

    Chicago Bulls point/shooting guard Zach LaVine led his squad with 18 points in Sundays loss to the Sacramento Kings, but he needed 18 shot attempts to get there. LaVine added three rebounds, three assists and three steals to add other contributions, but it was an overall disappointing showing against a defense that has had a propensity to allow big performances to opposing guards this season. He has another golden match-up Monday against the Phoenix Suns, whom he dropped 29 points again in their prior showdown Nov. 21.

    Lauri Markkanen Mar 18 1:20pm ET

    Chicago Bulls power forward Lauri Markkanen logged just 23 minutes during Sundays defeat at the hands of the Sacramento Kings, his lowest total of playing time since Dec. 8. Markkanens offensive slump continued, as he finished with 11 points and three rebounds. The second-year big man has averaged 13.9 points per game over his last eight contests, which is markedly down from the 26.5 PPG he averaged in the 11 prior. Owners will now have to adjust to Markkanens new stock, although he should be somewhat fresh for the second leg of a back-to-back Monday against the Phoenix Suns, who are allowing a Western Conference-high 116.1 points per game and could be a solid buy-low candidate in DFS.

    Harry Giles Mar 18 1:10pm ET

    Sacramento Kings power forward/center Harry Giles tied his career high with 14 shot attempts during Sundays victory over the Chicago Bulls, finishing with 16 points, six rebounds, three assists and three blocks to his credit. Giles has now seen between 18-22 minutes in each of his last seven games, and with the Kings likely on the outside looking in as it pertains to the playoff picture, he should see his role only increase down the stretch. After a quiet first half, Giles is averaging 10.4 points and 5.8 rebounds over his first 12 games since the All-Star break and presents a lower-end wire add for season-long owners.

    De'Aaron Fox Mar 18 12:50pm ET

    Sacramento Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox and shooting guard Buddy Hield only played 25 minutes each during the teams win over the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, with both knocking down a pair of triples and finishing 6-for-12 from the field. The Kings cruised to victory, which kept both men from posting gaudier numbers, although both finished with impressive showings: Fox collected 17 points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals, while Hield had 16 points, four assists, three steals and two rebounds. The duo have what should be a fast-paced match-up versus the Brooklyn Nets come Tuesday, who are allowing the most points per game (111.8) for any team currently projected to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.

    Aaron Gordon Mar 18 11:40am ET

    Orlando Magic small/power forward Aaron Gordon has begun to find the mark from long range, knocking down three triples for the third consecutive game during Sundays win over the Atlanta Hawks. Gordon collected 22 points, eight rebounds and three assists across his 38 minutes, his first game shooting above 50 percent from the floor during the month of March. He has averaged 1.5 makes from deep this season, down from the 2.0 he hit last year, although his percentage has ticked up to 34 percent in 2018-19. Owners know what to expect out of Gordon down the stretch, but adding a consistent three-point game to his arsenal makes him all the more valuable.

    Dewayne Dedmon Mar 18 11:30am ET

    Atlanta Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon was all over the boards during Sundays loss to the Orlando Magic, piling up 14 rebounds to go along with 10 points, giving him his 11th double-double of the year, this one across just 25 minutes. Dedmon also added two assists, two steals and two made triples to his stat line, continuing to produce down the stretch for a Hawks club that seems content to roll with him as their center so long as he remains healthy.

    Jonathan Isaac Mar 18 10:30am ET

    Orlando Magic small/power forward Jonathan Isaac delivered a clunker during Sundays win over the Atlanta Hawks, finishing 0-for-7 from the field en route to a scoreless effort across his 26 minutes. Isaac got up six three-point attempts, none of which found the bottom of the net. He added three rebounds, but was unable to salvage his stat line. The silver lining is that he next faces the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday, whom he went for a career-high 20 points against on Feb. 12. His DFS price tag should drop following Sundays outing, making him a strong bounce back candidate at a reasonable value.

    Trae Young Mar 18 10:30am ET

    Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young collected 20 points during Sundays loss to the Orlando Magic, all while failing to knock down a three-point bucket for the second time against the Magic this year. Young went 0-for-5 from deep, the 18th time in 71 games that he has failed to knock down a triple. He added six rebounds and five assists to still finish with a solid performance, but hell look to get his shot back in order for Tuesdays match-up against the Houston Rockets, whom he stroked a career-high eight threes against in their last meeting Feb. 25.

    Nikola Vucevic Mar 18 10:20am ET

    Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic went for 27 points and 20 rebounds during Sundays victory over the Atlanta Hawks, marking his first 20-20 performance since the 2013-14 campaign. Vucevic is attempting to carry his squad to the postseason, now having delivered seven consecutive double-doubles and 16 in his last 17 outings. He next squares off with the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday, whom he went for 25 points and 17 rebounds against on Feb. 12.

    Ben Simmons Mar 18 10:10am ET

    Philadelphia 76ers point guard/small forward Ben Simmons was on the doorstep of recording his 11th triple-double of the season during Sundays win over the Milwaukee Bucks, but ultimately finished with eight points, nine rebounds and nine assists. The scoring output was Simmons lowest since the All-Star break and overall since Feb. 10. He remains a top-notch fantasy asset that presents a double- and triple-double threat on a nightly basis, no matter the opponent. Hell take on an expanded role on the glass Tuesday versus the Charlotte Hornets with Joel Embiid ruled out, making Simmons an attractive DFS target.

    Jimmy Butler Mar 18 10:00am ET

    Philadelphia 76ers shooting guard/small forward Jimmy Butler was in a groove offensively during Sundays win over the Milwaukee Bucks, collecting 27 points on 8-for-16 shooting, giving him his largest points total since Feb. 2. He also added six rebounds, three assists and three steals across his 34 minutes of action. Butler has seen his numbers take a bit of a dip since joining the Sixers, but with many mouths to feed, he seems to have found his niche in the offense, while remaining a steady contributor. Joel Embiid will be absent for Tuesdays game against Charlotte, which could mean Butler will have additional shot opportunities.

    Nikola Mirotic Mar 18 7:00am ET

    Milwaukee Bucks power forward Nikola Mirotic drew the start in place of the injured Malcolm Brogdon during Sundays loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Bucks will likely tinker with different rotations over the coming weeks of the regular season, but for now, Mirotic appears to be the first man up to try his hand as a starter and his first impression could have gone better, to say the least. He shot 1-for-7 from the field overall, as well as 0-for-6 from three, finishing with two points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals across 24 minutes. Mirotic could present himself as a cheap DFS play with high upside Tuesday against the Los Angeles Lakers, should he remain in the starting lineup and find his shot.

    Joel Embiid Mar 18 7:00am ET

    76ers' C Joel Embiid scored a monster 75.25 fantasy points with 40 points scored, six assists and 15 rebounds in a 130-125 win over Milwaukee on Sunday. Embiid has scored an average of 61.75 fantasy points in his last 3 games.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo Mar 18 7:00am ET

    Bucks' F Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a monster 88.00 fantasy points with 52 points scored, seven assists and 16 rebounds in a 125-130 loss to the 76ers on Sunday. Antetokounmpo has scored an average of 67.08 fantasy points in his last 3 games.

    Joel Embiid Mar 18 6:50am ET

    Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid paved the way for his squads victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, dropping 40 points on 15-for-31 shooting, including 4-for-13 from deep, the most threes he has ever attempted in a single outing. The performance also marked his 14th consecutive double-double, as he added 15 rebounds, six assists and three steals, delivering one of his best fantasy outputs of the season. The Sixers have already announced that hell be held out Tuesday in the front end of a back-to-back against the Charlotte Hornets, which would have presented an elite fantasy match-up, but will instead next play Wednesday against the Boston Celtics.

    James Harden Mar 18 6:00am ET

    Houston Rockets guard James Harden provided his fourth consecutive double-double on Sunday in the win over the Timberwolves. Harden connected on 8-for-24 shooting to score 20 points while handing out 10 dimes with a steal. Harden interestingly enough did not attempt a shot at the line for the first time since January 2nd, 2015. Harden helped lead the charge for the Rockets who connected on 21 of 50 attempts from three in this one. The Rockets play four times this week and this includes on back-to-back set on Tuesday and Wednesday, and we could easily see coach D'Antoni giving the beard a night off.

    Chris Paul Mar 18 6:00am ET

    Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul posted an excellent line on Sunday when he connected on six of seven from three to score 25 points while dishing out 10 assists in the win over the Timberwolves. Paul shot 8-for-12 from the floor overall and also hauled in seven boards with a steal while committing just a single turnover. There is not much more owners could have asked for out Paul on the last day of the week and with the Rockets playing four times this, we can expect the excellent play to continue. Although, keep an eye on his status for Tuesday and Wednesday's back-to-back set against the Hawks and Grizzlies.

    Clint Capela Mar 18 5:50am ET

    Houston Rockets center Clint Capela continued his efficient interior scoring on Sunday as the Swiss native connected on 8-for-11 shooting to score 20 points in the win over the Timberwolves. Capela made it a double-double as he grabbed 13 rebounds while also swatting away two shots as he held his own against Karl-Anthony Towns on this night. Capela has been a fantasy stud this season, and owners shall keep him rolling this week as the Rockets play four times and he is worth a look on Tuesday in DFS when the Rockets have a favorable matchup against the Hawks.

    Karl-Anthony Towns Mar 18 5:50am ET

    Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns scored 13 of his 22 points in the first quarter on Sunday, but it was not enough in the rough loss to the Rockets. Towns connected on just 8-for-22 shooting and added 10 rebounds while dishing out six assists with two blocks. This was more a quiet line for Towns who has been in beast mode as of late. The Timberwolves play three times this week with the first game coming Tuesday when they square off against the Warriors.

    Taj Gibson Mar 18 5:40am ET

    Minnesota Timberwolves power forward/center Taj Gibson was one of the very few bright spots for his club on Sunday in the loss to the Rockets. Gibson provided a double-double of 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds off the bench while adding a single block to his line. Gibson was a bit quiet in his last two games, but prior to those games, he was playing well and is averaging 13.8 points, 8.0 boards, 0.6 blocks, and 0.6 steals in his last five games. He could be worth a look as streamer this week when his club plays three times.
