Josh: These sort of lines are why we love Reed as a per minute dynasty watch guy, but he is unlikely to play much this season
Kyle: Reed can put up nice stats when he gets minutes, but if the Sixers are healthy, he's unlikely to be a regular part of the rotation.
Kyle: Frank will likely be in a regular bench role but may be out of the rotation at times, too.
Josh: Had struggled a bit, so it's good to see him put up this sort of line to solidfy his value in the mid rounds
Kyle: Stewart broke out of his preseason funk with this nice performance, and he seems to have a secure role as the starting center.
Josh: Joe's outstanding preseason cotinued. He is looking better than Milton, and it will be interesting to see if he can crack rotation minutes.
Watch Kyle: Joe has played great this preseason and could be working his way into a regular rotation role this season, but he's unlikely to play enough early to be of much more interest than watch lists, streaming, and deeper leagues.
Josh: Look for some stream value if Hayes isn't ready opening night, although I believe Joseph would start
Josh: Filled it up and could be a stream option if Cade misses regular season time
Kyle: Coach Casey said Jackson will have a rotation role this season. Jackson has played well this preseason, but when the team is healthy, he'll be in a modest bench role most games. He'll just be for deeper leagues and conditional streaming.
Kyle: Grant's production this preseason has been in line with his role from last season. He remains a fine pick in the middle rounds, especially if he falls some.
Josh: No one denies he can put up numbers. I just am not enthused about draftung a guy who plays 15 minutes a night.
Kyle: Drummond started with Embiid out but will be in too short of a role most games to be treated as more than a streamer, specialist, and maybe best used in deeper leagues.
Josh: I am feeling more and more like Simmons will play opening night, which reduces Maxey's value, but he should still have a nice scoring role off the bench
Watch Kyle: Maxey should be in a good backup role to open the season with Ben Simmons likely starting and playing a good role until a trade happens. Maxey is OK as a flier in most leagues going into the season, but whether or not he becomes a must-roster player will depend on who comes back in a Simmons trade.
Josh: I expect him out of the rotation opening night
Kyle: Diallo will likely be in a regular bench role but may be out of the rotation at times, too.
Kyle: The Pistons have been consistent in saying they're being cautious with Cade, which is good, and it appears he'll be ready around the start of the season. I had hoped this minor injury would have helped Cade fall in drafts, but he's been going steady in the 6th round, 7th at the latest.
Kyle: Hayes is in the concussion protocol but is improving and may be ready by Opening Night.
