Josh: This is why an overreaction to opening night was just that, an overreaction.
Kyle: Vassell responded to his poor performance with a big night, including a career-high 23 points, that could look like a normal night in short order. He was a buy-low target, but that window has likely closed. I'm loving the assists, and they'll probably be a regular part of his responsibilities.
Josh: From the top rope! The minutes are interesting, but the opposition was pure trash. I will keep this in my mind, but he isn't someone I would add
Maybe Add 14 teams Kyle: Richardson had a big night, and it's worth keeping tabs on, but I wouldn't expect him to be a consistent streaming option unless the Spurs are trying hard to move him. And if they are actively shopping Richardson, I'd bet he gets traded soon if he's producing like this with any regularity. While I'm suspect of this paying off in the long run, he's OK to take a flier on given the opportunity on the Spurs. This is a big flier, though, and I'm not ready to give him
Josh: STarters were bad, so Carlisle benched them. Numbers still good, but be aware of how bad this team actually is
Kyle: A fantastic line in just 27 minutes as he went off late. The bench was playing well, and coach Carlisle road them. It's sounding like the Pacers could be a bit of a mess from game to game if Carlisle is going to want to play mad scientist for fun in a tanking season.
Stream Kyle: 7 blocks through two games while only playing limited minutes. He's at least worth streaming and using as a specialist, but also make sure to track in case Poeltl rests on occasion.
Josh: The frustration of not playing him, even when he plays like this, is palpable. This is a good line, and you should hold, but I do not understand what Carlisle is playing at.
Must Add Kyle: Jackson's upside, even in modest minutes is too high to be sitting on the wire in any standard category leagues. He's someone to trade and hold, not just discard. Carlisle is already talking about a starting lineup change, and while that may mean Bitadze to open, Jackson will hopefully earn more minutes in short order, as there's no reason for him to be so limited while Turner is out. It's absurd.
Kyle: Hield's minutes were short
Must Add Josh: Started on fire and actually started the second half, but his production ground to a halt when he was paired with Hield and Hali. He shouldn't be on the wire though.
Must Add Kyle: Mathurin is a must-add anywhere he's available. It's possible he struggles as teams start to game plan for him, but the watching him, it's evident he's going to be a fantastic scorer for a long time. He plays to contact like a 10-year vet. He's not even selling, either. He's going into the other players, creating the contact, and then finishing. It's so fun. He started the second half, and it'd be a surprise if he's not starting and playing a lot more sooner than later.
Josh: How this guy led the team in minutes is anyone's guess. The rotation is screaming mess all season. I would only look at him in deeper formats
Maybe Add 14 teams Kyle: Nembhard is on a two-way contract and wasn't expected to play much to open the season, but after a great debut like this, coach Carlisle will likely be looking for more opportunities for the rookie. I wouldn't be chasing in standards yet, but it's OK to take a flier or consider Nembhard a stream for Saturday to see what happens in deeper leagues.
Josh: Nice and solid and I am intrigued by the assists here
Kyle: The assists are looking intriguing, and I'm buying it stick a bit.
Josh: Much better after Game 1. Restores some of my confidence
Maybe Add Kyle: Big minutes. A great sign for Jones' potential upside. He should be on someone's roster to see if these minutes have a chance to settle in around 33 mpg or so.
Josh: Started again for Turner and I don't know why. He isn't an add
Kyle: Taylor was given a second straight start with Turner out and coach Carlisle rolling a 20-sided dice to decide his starting lineup. Carlisle talked about using a different starting lineup, so maybe Taylor is on the bench or out of the rotation entirely Saturday. He's just for watch lists and very conditional streaming.
Kyle: Nesmith is getting decent minutes. Just something to watch and consider for very deep leagues.
Kyle: No idea why Johnson is getting minutes on this rebuilding roster, but for very deep formats, it's something to be aware of in case he surprises with regular modest run off the bench.
Kyle: If you need assists and steals in deeper formats, McConnell could be worth a look even in modest bench minutes.
Josh: He looked quite shaky at times, but those assists are interesting. Jones clearly outplayed him though. He is more of a stash guy, who is giving some value as is.
Maybe Add 14 teams Kyle: Short minutes and low attempts, but 7 assists is nothing shirk at. Primo is a hold and worth consideration as a streamer or flier in most category leagues if you need assists.
Kyle: Both of Poeltl's 21 free throw attempts and 13 makes were career-highs. An oddity, not something we should expect to see again, but fun for the night. He's playing great through two games. Here's hoping the tanking Spurs aren't planning on resting him on the b2b Saturday.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: He is only a hold for later in the season, and even then, I'm not sure he is going to be a high enough upside guy to hold.
Droppable Kyle: A disappointing night in minutes and production. The rookie is struggling to find his place in the pecking order early, but at least keep tabs on him, as he shouldn't be at risk of losing the starting job.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: I don't think he is going to last as a starter. Not an auto drop, as he could start all season if Hield is dealt, but the reality is he isn't a very good prospect nor player at this point.
Droppable Kyle: Duarte is falling out of the mix as rookie phenom Benn Mathurin has taken flight through two games. Duarte can be dropped as needed most places. He should find a bigger role as we go, but the Pacers are looking at a lot of guys right now, so maybe Duarte continues to flounder for a bit. He came off the bench in the second half with Mathurin starting.
Watch Kyle: Bitadze started the second half and could get a look starting at center to open Saturday's game against the Pistons, though I'd hope Carlisle just goes with Jackson after his soled performance tonight.
Josh: He isn't a centre. He also had his night cut short with a mouth injury and his knee is sore. I wouldn't automatically drop him, but he isn't someone I am feeling great about and I wouldn't be critical of dropping him
Buy Low Kyle: Smith was literally listed by the team as being out with a "blow to the face". Hopefully he's OK for Saturday's game, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see him sit out on the b2b, even if just as precaution. He's a buy-low target at the moment as his manger's are likely frustrated by the questionable tags going into each game and the lack of excitement from him so far despite great opportunity at center with Turner out and Carlisle running odd lineups.
Kyle: Not in the rotation.
Kyle: Not in the rotation.

Josh: Almost half of his points came from the line. It has inflated the output a lot. He was great, no doubt, but I would not be buying this as his level.
Sell High Kyle: Valanciunas is obviously fine to just roll with, but nights like this are going to be hard to come by consistently if teams are playing smaller. The Hornets played big all night, giving the Pelicans the room to give JV and Hernangomez run. Don't make a point to sell JV unless you're getting back a great value. He's in a great spot still despite the depth on the Pels.
Josh: Love what he is doing so far this season
Kyle: Great start to the season. Ingram's injury absences usually leave a sour taste in the mouth of fantasy managers, though, so it's always worth considering a player's return value when they're on an impressive stretch.
Sell High Josh: You won't have luck selling him, I'm sure, but you always have to enquire.
Sell High Kyle: That's two great games for Hayward, and the huge minutes here are intriguing, but this is coming with LaMelo out, and we can't trust Hayward to stay healthy. Which means this is a sell-high moment for Hayward in most leagues. I wouldn't give him up for peanuts, but I would be willing to accept a reduced expectation to gain more security in the long run.
Josh: Hurt his ankle late and played through it. FG% is horrid. Part of the reason for his ascension last two years has been huge jumps in fg%, so we will watch this
Kyle: Rozier injured his ankle and toughed it out to finish the game, but he was seen wearing a boot leaving the arena.
Watch Kyle: McDaniels was nice here, and he's worth having on watch lists to see how big of a role he earns this season, but I wouldn't be chasing him too hard beyond conditional streaming if the Hornets continue to have injuries.
Maybe Add 12 teams Josh: He racks up defensive stats. It's what he does and it's valuable for deep leagues. If Rozier is out, Smith is a great add
Maybe Add 12 teams Kyle: This would be a streaming add based on the chance that Rozier is out Sunday and LaMelo doesn't make a miraculous return, which doesn't seem to be in the cards.
Josh: Disappointing minutes. I would hold if I added, but upside is limited by his role as a sixth man
Stream Kyle: Murphy has put up some nice all-around production in the first couple games, but it'll be hard for him to provide consistent value for standard leagues in his middling bench role. I'd be watching closely to add if an injury happens, but I'd also only be treating RoboCop as a streamer in standards for the moment. He should be rostered as a flier in all deeper leagues, including 14-team leagues.
Maybe Add 12 teams Kyle: Oubre is a good streaming option and flier to consider with LaMelo still out and Rozier getting a sprained ankle Friday.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: The droppable tage is mainly for points leagues, but also in categories, he is only a defense specialist - think Thybulle with more minutes. He just doesn't get to touch it on offense
Hold Kyle: If Jones gets dropped anywhere, I'd likely be adding him. His role is secure, and there's upside for him to improve as we go, especially if injuries happen.
Kyle: Ingram is the real PG on this team, and CJ's the SG, and that's they way it should be. This squad has the talent to win the championship this season. All they lack is the experience.
Stream Kyle: Plumlee has streaming value, but I wouldn't be chasing him beyond deeper leagues and use as a specialist for his FG% and modest blocks. He can drop dimes, but he'll likely do so less when LaMelo is back.
Maybe Add 12 teams Josh: More minutes than Plumlee, but the per minute production from last game was a mirage. He still can at least be a streamer, but he isn't a must roster player
Watch Kyle: Good minutes. Poor production. Nothing to chase in most places, but keep Richards on the watch list in case he steals more run as we go or Plumlee gets injured.
Josh: He will rough shooting nights, but he was useful in some other areas.
Josh: A weird night for Zion and he was ineffiecient.
Buy Low Kyle: Zion struggled with his shot and took a backseat to Valanciunas playing great. I'd be buying low if his manager is worried.
Kyle: Can't believe he's in the rotation at the moment given his personal issues, and he's not playing well.
Kyle: This kid deserves to get rotation minutes already. I wouldn't be surprised if other guys like Graham are only playing over Daniels because the front office asked coach Green to feature them for a bit. I'd be trying to buy low in very deep dynasty formats.
Kyle: Not in the rotation.

Josh: This role seems about right for him. It isn't for 12 teams, but deeper leagues will like the defensive upside.
Maybe Add 14 teams Kyle: Foul issues, and the team said they might limit his minutes a bit, so I wouldn't be worried about that. There's upside in Avdija's minutes going forward, and to see him contribute so well in short action is intriguing. I'd consider a flier in deeper leagues and would be watching closely in standards.
Josh: Carrying without LaVine. His usage will interesting tomorrow
Josh: FG% putrid again. Is this him now?
Kyle: Vucevic's perfect work at the line came with career-highs in attempts and makes, going 12-for-12.
Josh: Strong start to the season. I would say he is a sell high, but it isn't unreasonable that he stays close to this
Sell High Kyle: Kuzma is off the a hot start, and he's fine to jsut enjoy, but with the team healthy, I wouldn't expect his great opening to be a reliable ceiling.
Josh: Love what he does, but he would need to usurp Morris for me to think he is a must add player.
Stream Kyle: Wright is putting up nice defensive production and is at least worth having on watch lists as a reminder of his streaming value.
Hold Josh: He isn't a drop, but the upside some claimed he had coming from Denver has not materialised, but I am not surprised.
Kyle: Morris is fine to hold, but with Wright forcing a near timeshare, it's also going to be OK to drop Morris in standards for the right wire add.
Josh: Usage very low. I don't think 30 point Beal is coming back, but the assists are nice.
Kyle: Great assists and efficiency, but the low shots are a concern if Beal is going give way to his teammates regularly. It's something to watch, and I'd be a little wary of buying low in case this is a trend.
Josh: These are the lines which made me subdued on Dosunmu's value. And now LaVine plays tomorrow. Fine to have him, but the saviour some touted him as is not likely to be real. The usage here is a big red flag
Kyle: LaVine is back tomorrow and not supposed to have any minutes restrictions. If Dosunmu falters again, he'll be OK to drop as needed in most leagues.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: Unless multiple injuries strike, he isn't a 12 team guy. Couldn't crack 20 minutes.
Droppable 12 teams Kyle: Barton's role is looking like it'll waffle too much on the bench
Stream Josh: He is just a steals guy and will lose chances with LaVine back
Kyle: Caruso is best treated as a streamer and steals specialist, especially with LaVine expected back Saturday.
Kyle: Very deep leagues could find value in Dragic's middling bench role, but I might wait to gauge how much use if he ends up getting rested Saturday on the b2b.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: No reason or hope for him to be a 12 team guy. Free yourself.
Droppable Kyle: Another limp performance from P-Won't take a shot or won't get a rebound. Even long-time Bulls beat writer KC Johnson was making a point to track how anemic Williams' performance was in comparison to his teammates. It's inconceivable that he could fail to simply assert himself consistently. That is the entire issue. And he could be losing his starting job soon as a result.
Kyle: Good minutes, but White could be at the fringe of the rotation when LaVine plays. Nothing to chase here beyond very deep leagues.
Kyle: OK to hold or treat as a streamer and drop as needed.
Stream Kyle: Drummond has value as a streamer and specialist, but he may not be consistent enough to hold throughout his poor games if his minutes remain too low.
Kyle: There was a report saying that LaVine is expected to play Saturday and not have any minutes restrictions. Based on that report, it would seem LaVine is doing OK and that the team was simply playing out a strange ramp-up schedule with him. If you believe that (I don't, yet.), then LaVine could be worth considering as a buy-low target at the moment.

Josh: Only 38 minutes on first night of a back to back with knees made of Doritos, but I was told Nurse would play him fewer minutes this yeah. Anyway, good production.
Kyle: Huge minutes again. I really hope this doesn't mean he gets rested Saturday.
Kyle: Siakam was on fire with his first triple-double of the season and 4th of his career.
Josh: Another strong, across the board line from Barnes, who hasn't elevated, just producing well.
Josh: There we go
Kyle: Irving bounced back nicely with a 30-piece after a low-scoring night to open the season.
Josh: A huge night bar the ft%. I like thiose minutes after he split them with Sharpe last game
Kyle: Huge minutes, and another double-double. This is the first time Claxton has recorded a double-double in b2b games. He's playing fantastic and came at a great value in drafts. This could be seen as a sell-high stretch, but only for the right return.
Josh: Steals and blocks are nice, but game 1 was a big fluke in terms of overall production. He isn't someone I look at as must roster.
Maybe Add 12 teams Kyle: More good defense and huge minutes even with Harris back in action. They traded a first-round pick to get him for a reason. The minutes and production could stick in many respects, though it'll likely fall some when Curry is ready.
Josh: Much better. Phew. Low socring will happen a lot, but the rest is great.
Kyle: Simmons stayed out of foul trouble and had a good game. He gave us rebound, assists, and defense. That's all we should expect, and the offense will be a bonus while Kyrie and Durant are healthy.
Josh: He is going to be a huge fg% drain most nights and the lack of rebounds and assists can make him hurt some teams. It's about volume and steals.
Josh: Low minutes in his return. I do not think there is any reason to add him in 12 or 14 team leagues given his injury and the other guards taking minutes away.
Droppable Kyle: Harris looks like he's going to have to settling for a middling bench role this season as long as the team is healthy.
Josh: I like him, but there is too much competition for it to matter for most leagues.
Watch Kyle: Coach Nurse was sticking up for Koloko after the game, saying he was called for several fouls that were actually blocks, getting a rookie treatment from the refs. Based on the minutes already, Koloko is looking like someone to keep close tabs on in most leagues and to consider a flier in deeper formats.
Droppable 14 teams Josh: I won't be long until Koloko is head of him most nights.
Droppable Kyle: Achiuwa is becoming a smaller part of the plans with Koloko showing promise.
Kyle: Available but did not play.
Kyle: Out of the rotation already.
Kyle: Out of the rotation.

Josh: I love those defensive stats and fg%
Must Add Josh: If someone dropped him, go and add him.
Sell High Kyle: If you think Lowry is closer to the stinker he put up in the opener than the nice line here, this could be seen as a sell-high moment.
Josh: He has looked really solid as a starter which was a little bit of a worry before the season.
Kyle: Two blocks is a nice little bonus to go with an already great line.
Josh: We know he blocks shots, but the minutes cap keeps him from being a must roster 12 team guy
Stream Kyle: The minutes weren't great, but the three blocks and overall production at least makes White someone to be aware of for streaming situations.
Josh: Nice blocks, but while he can be a 12 team guy, the upside is pretty low in my opinion
Josh: Great response to Game 1. Still, the overall line is a bit underwhelming.
Kyle: A good bench line from Gabe, but he's in too modest of a role most nights to be chasing beyond very deep leagues and watch lists for now.
Josh: A very low end option. He isn't must roster, but he can be considered, that's it.
Kyle: Martin's upside isn't so high that he can't be treated like a streamer and added and dropped as needed, but he's also a fine hold for Saturday at least.
Josh: Two poor games in a row. Hold him, but usage and low scoring will be things that reduce a lot of his value.
Kyle: Big minutes, and he's supposed to play in the b2b. Coach Mazzulla is rolling the dice putting this much weight on Horford. I wouldn't be surprised to be shorter run Saturday. The production could improve, though, as Horford was short on anything but his threes Friday.
Hold Josh: Rough night after a good opener. Curious they are splitting his and White's minutes. I will hold him for now.
Kyle: Not great, and the middling minutes are a worry for Brogdon providing consistent production.
Josh: Fall back to Earth after game one. It's why I didn't rush to add him. He is only a threes streamer.
Kyle: Strus is best treated as a streamer while the team is healthy, OK to drop and add as needed. He's fine to hold through Saturday's game, though.
Kyle: What happened to the preseason hype? Maybe Kornet gets a good look Saturday on the b2b.

Josh: He is thriving this season. More minutes and he seems more engaged.
Kyle: Collins' minutes are up, and he's looking good despite. He came at a nice value on draft day and is smashing his draft slot at the moment. While he's OK to consider a sell-high player given his history of injuries and inconsistency, I'd only give him up if the return makes a lot of sense, as this flow with Murray in the mix is benefiting JC.
Josh: Slow start to the game, but dominated in the end. I love to see what he's doing and I definitely didn't see it coming
Kyle: That's almost back-to-back games with double-digit assists for both Murray and Young. This team is fun and producing fantastic for fantasy. Murray isn't getting slowed down with Hawks, and the fact he won't be rested like last season for tanking means great upside down thee stretch just for being in the lineup as long as he's healthy. I would not be selling high unless the return is great and makes sense for my build.
Josh: See, Capela is not dead and Okongwu is taking his job yet. I doubt it happens this season.
Must Add 12 teams Josh: Thrived off the bench, but will almost definitely start next game. Make sure he isn't on the wire, but also make sure you understand he probably shoots 38% next game
Maybe Add 12 teams Kyle: Cole was back from his illness and had a great game with Suggs leaving due to injury. Anthony is a nice flier and streamer for Saturday's game with Suggs possibly out again.
Josh: Usage taken by Cole which is a little worrying.
Kyle: Great minutes, and the 4 steals are fantastic.
Josh: He looks awesome.
Kyle: Poor shooting, but it's hard to complain about an awesome all-around performance from the rookie.
Josh: That is too many minutes for Ross, but it may maintain with Suggs getting hurt now. Not much of a fantasy option.
Watch Kyle: Ross is worth considering as a conditional streamer Saturday if Suggs is out and he gets another start.
Josh: The Bol Bol 'explosion' didn't happen, but he is a rotation guy for now. Not much of a fantasy option though.
Kyle: As the team gets healthy, I'd think we see less of Bol.
Josh: Rough shooting, but otherwise, not much drop in production.
Kyle: It's really exciting to see the assists so high through two games. And I wouldn't worry about the poor percentages. If anything, that's a reason to try buying low.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: I only see him being worth it if there is an injury and in daily changes leagues, that's tough to deal with.
Droppable 12 teams Kyle: I'd be fine dropping Bamba as needed in standards for another flier or streamer.
Josh: This is the Hunter I have seen for three years. At least he rebounded, but the poor shooting and no supporting stats is what crucifies him for category leagues. I do not think he is must roster.
Josh: Minutes are great, just couldn't get shots to fall. BNothing to worry about.
Josh: Love the steals, but he's hurt again. Wait to see what happens, but he is a drop if it's a week+
Kyle: Suggs' injury hopefully won't hold him out for long, but it was awkward looking play, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's something more than a sprain. -- -- HIs right ankle seems to buckle a little on lift off, and then it bangs hard into the floor on its side. I certainly don't think he'll play Saturday on the b2b, but hopefully I'm wrong there and the play simply looks bad. I'd be holding most places until we get more information.
Josh: If you have him it's likely because you believe he is taking over from Capela. And I'm not going to be able to convince you otherwise, I fear. So, keep holding for a bit, but I think it may be just a wait for an injury type situation.
Kyle: Out of the mix.

Josh: Great bounceback from last game on elite shooting. The defensive stats are nice too.
Kyle: Bey bounced back nicely after a light showing in the Pistons' first game. He's in a great secure role, so hold him through any poor streaky shooting.
Must Add Josh: Got into the 20s which is all you can ask for. Should be rostered.
Josh: Got more minutes in the blowout and took advantage. We've seen it before. The key is getting more minutes.
Kyle: Extra run and great production in the blowout win. Toppin is someone to watch for conditional streaming, but nights like this can't be planned for, and he's generally in too modest of a role to be of consistent use beyond deeper leagues.
Stream Josh: Love it. It's just hard to rely on him every night for this much playing time. He is name to watch
Kyle: Extra minutes and touches in a blowout win. Quickley can put up some great lines, and this should earn him more bench run in the short term. But the Knicks are deep on the wing, and it's hard to see consistent production coming from Quickley unless the team has injuries.
Josh: Usage continues to be a little low, but it's hard to fauly the output.
Kyle: Great production, but in just 16 minutes, and it doesn't look like Rose is going to have much more than a modest run most games. I wouldn't be chasing him beyond watch lists, conditional streaming, and very deep leagues.
Josh: He hit his shots, but the supporting stats are still an issue.
Hold Kyle: Low minutes due to the blowout. He's a firm hold.
Kyle: Low minutes in a blowout, and he still contributed. If I had Fournier, I wouldn't be dropping him because of this line. But that doesn't mean he can't be dropped as needed for a better add in standard leagues.
Must Add Josh: A super strong game with assists and I didn't really see that coming. He should be rostered, but I can see some slumps coming.
Must Add Kyle: Low minutes due to the blowout, but Ivey shined again, this time with a career-high 9 assists in just his second game. He's a must-add if on the wire anywhere still.
Must Add Josh: Had some early foul trouble, but still ended with 23 minutes. That's a massive green flag. Add him
Must Add Kyle: Duren is flashing too much potential to be on the wire in any standard leagues.
Josh: Blowout and THubs limited the minutes, but it was also that the bench was rolling, again. They do that a lot.
Josh: Nowhere near his best, but still producing some numbers
Buy Low Kyle: The efficiency can be ugly, but Cade will iron some of that out with streaky hyper-efficient games, and general improvement. He's too skilled and crafty of a player not to improve his percentages as his career moves forward. If you're punting FG%, he's a great buy-low target.
Josh: Started well, but a bit lacklustre overall. Hartenstein makes the team better and that does not fare well for Robinsone. Hold him.
Buy Low Kyle: Low minutes due to the blowout, but Hartenstein had another good showing. It's fair to be slightly concerned about Hartenstein forcing more of a timeshare, but I'm not fixating on it after these two games. Let's let it play out a bit more. Both are worth rostering and capable of continuing to produce in middling minutes. I'd be buying low on Robinson with the hype around Hartenstein.
Josh: Good minutes, but it feels like Duren will be the starter soon. Butr, with Casey, soon may mean next season.. Hold Stewart for now.
Hold Kyle: Not exciting, but useful production and upside going forward. The minutes are good to see hitting 30.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: A lot of people chased the opening night production, but he has proven he cannot be that guy consistently. Go drop him.
Droppable Kyle: The magic faded. He can be let go if you took the flier on his amazing performance in the opener.
Droppable Kyle: Until coach Casey stops giving needless minutes to CoJo, Hayes will likely continue to have a low floor and ceiling. If you need assists, though, he's someone to track closely for streaming if nothing else.

Must Add 12 teams Josh: It won't last all season, but he isn't allowed to be on your wire. I don't make the rules, except for this rule. I made it. Add him
Must Add 12 teams Kyle: Olynyk showed his upside and potential here as a tank leader, and he shouldn't be on the wire in any standard leagues.
Must Add 12 teams Josh: No reason for Clarkson to be on the wire either.
Must Add 12 teams Kyle: Clarkson should be on someone's roster in most leagues to see how great he can produce with a starting job on a tanking team.
Josh: Steals and boards, that's what he is. Hurts in other spots too. So, he makes sense for some teams, but not others.
Kyle: Vanderbilt is producing in the stats we expect him to, despite short minutes so far. He's providing in rebounds and steals, and it's possible we see more production in blocks and assists going forward. Vandy has easy upside if he can just stay out of foul trouble.
Josh: Doing enough in reserve minutes to be a 12 team option, especially with Vando always in foul trouble.
Maybe Add 12 teams Kyle: Walker should be on someone's roster in most leagues for his FG%, rebounds, and blocks.
Stream Josh: A very nice deep league player who gets good usage off the bench
Watch Kyle: Nowell has streaming value and is someone to be aware of in case injuries give him a bigger role as we go.
Sell High Kyle: Conley is a sell-high guy as long as he's playing well and getting big minutes. In fact, I might be trying to offload him with a purpose before he starts getting rested on b2bs.
Josh: This is what we saw so much of last season. Not saying Game 1 was a fluke, but it is likely the outlier.
Kyle: Not as good as the first game, but the big minutes stuck, keeping McDaniels' upside high.
Hold Josh: Not dropping him, but he is not playing well. A short leash
Buy Low 14 teams Kyle: Sexton's low minutes will come up as the team looks to rest Conley and others on b2bs and other occasions. And an eventual trade of Conley, Clarkson, Beasley, and others could clear a huge role for Sexton. I wouldn't be dropping him beyond shallow leagues. I'd hold through the b2b Sun/Mon and would be buying low for the right price, especially in deeper Rotisserie.
Kyle: Reid was given spot run with Towns in foul trouble.
Josh: Nice game, but weirdly poor from the line.
Kyle: A nice jump in scoring after light work there in the previous game from Edwards.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: He's droppable because he isn't a high ceiling player and he isn't producing all that well. A streamer.
Stream Kyle: Stream Beasley for threes, but I wouldn't count on consistency if the Jazz start losing and roll more fully into the tank year.
Josh: Great to see a nice boucneback, but low boards, low fg% and low blocks were all what I feared with Gobert arriving.
Kyle: Towns is still finding his way playing next to Gobert, and I'd be buying low if his manager is turned up through two games. Towns had a little foul trouble limit him here, or his minutes would have been higher due to OT.
Kyle: Anderson left and did not return due to back spasms.

Kyle: Morant was amazing with a season-high 49 points, three off his career-high of 52, and one of his blocks was spectacular. It's so refreshing to see an athletic player using his hops for defense. As a counter point, Paul George's lack of blocks throughout his career has been an annoying hole in his game given his potential to have contributed there. Thankfully we have the explosive Morant to meet our expectations and exceed them. -- The block:
Stream Josh: As long as Brooks is out, Konchar is a stream guy
Stream Kyle: It sounds like Brooks could play Saturday, so it may not be worth chasing, but if Brooks is out again, Konchar is worth streaming.
Kyle: Great bounce back game after a sub-standard opening night.
Josh: Interesting line. He has a nice skillset, but I doubt a big enough role emerges, but he is a name to watch
Josh: The peripherals help, but he has not been able to shoot at all, which is weird, given it's his main strength.
Kyle: Rough shooting, but a great line overall.
Josh: This is why the panic was not warranted. I expect he will start at some point, but it may not even matter.
Kyle: Sengun shined, and Fernando was out early with knee pain, so we could see Sengun starting as early as Saturday. Though it wouldn't be a surprise to see Silas do something else out of left field.
Must Add 12 teams Josh: Not the best, but we love the minutes and defense. He remains a 12 team guy
Kyle: The 3 blocks and versatile production held this line up for Aldama. He should be on someone's roster in all standard leagues, but don't be surprised if the returns of Brooks and eventually Ziaire chip away at Aldama's ceiling a bit.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: He may not play when Tate is back. Which is unfortunate. Holding him might be a 3 month experience, if you can deal with that in your format go for it, but I don't think that hold advice is right for everyone. BUT, you may hold for tomorrow, if Gordon sits the B2B
Watch Kyle: Deeper leagues could give Martin a look is Fernando is going to be out.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: Hurt his knee and didn't return. But was outplayed by Sengun before that. I don't believe he is a 12 team guy
Droppable Kyle: OK to hold until we know his status for Saturday, but I also wouldn't worry about dropping him as needed for a different streamer or flier.
Kyle: Jones has extra streaming value if Brooks continues to miss time, but Brooks could be back Saturday, so I wouldn't be chasing yet.
Buy Low Josh: Shooting off in first two games, so you may be able to get at a cheap price. Really nice rim protection and could've had more blocks if not for fouls.
Kyle: 3 blocks saved this line, and the big minutes. Don't worry about Smith. He's a firm hold and not someone I'd be selling unless the return makes a lot of sense.
Watch Kyle: Gordon likely rests on the b2b Saturday, especially after so many minutes Friday. He was good, but this is nothing to chase beyond deeper leagues and conditional streaming.
Josh: Looks like he is out of the rotation.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: No foul trouble today. He is Adams' backup, it seems, and you can do better.
Droppable Kyle: He's not getting the run and is OK to drop as needed in standards for a better flier or streamer.
Watch Kyle: If he's back Saturday, Brooks would be worth grabbing as a flier or streamer most places.
Kyle: I don't know why Silas can find room for Fernando in the rotation but overlooks Garuba so much. This guy's defensive potential shows special flashes that remind me of Ben Wallace's impact with the Pistons.

Josh: Usage is really bad, but at least he produced in other areas. He showed signs of passivity last season, but it's gotten worse now.
Kyle: Lilliard was great, scoring 28 of his 41 points in the first half.
Josh: Let's go! Minutes up, production up. Awesome to see a change after one game
Kyle: Nurkic bounced back from a poor showing with a great line in extended minutes of a blowout. This is a bit of a sell-high moment, as I don't trust Nurkic to be consistent. Even in 35 minutes, he still only blocked 1 shot.
Josh: Closed over Johnson and that is too interesting games in a row. He isn't a 12 team add, but a deep league option.
Kyle: A nice line, but Johnson was limited, Shamet was out, and it's not worth chasing Lee beyond very deep leagues.
Josh: Big drop from last game, but minutes are there and that is what matters.
Must Add 12 teams Kyle: Hart is still sitting on some wires, and he shouldn't be in standards.
Josh: Getting solid minutes, which is useful for deeper leagues.
Josh: Another thoroughly average performance, but it's what you drafted him for
Kyle: Poor from the line, but on few attempts, and it's hard to find much fault with this line, as it's nice to see 22 FG attempts and big scoring from Ayton.
Hold Josh: Took a charge early and appeared to hurt himself. He was able to return, but I don't think he was right. He is a hold though
Buy Low Kyle: Johnson has a good role but has been limited by injury issues in the first two games. Neither is a long-term concern, and he's a firm hold or a buy-low target.
Josh: Not great. I think we are going to have limited upside unless injuries strike this team. That's why he was going late in drafts.
Josh: This what I feared, but every other game had been much better. I'm not worrying
Watch Kyle: Not a good line or minutes, but Sharpe is already getting hyped up for what should be a bigger role as the season goes. Keep tabs, especially in deeper leagues.
Kyle: Not in the rotation.

Josh: Much better after a pooor opening night and minutes are still rising.
Sell High Kyle: That's a great line from Draymond, but given his supposed minutes limits for now and his inconsistent production, I'd be looking at this as a bit of a sell-high, especially in H2H where I wouldn't want to navigate rests.
Josh: Another big rebound night, but the ft% remains an issue. But, overall, the production is up.
Sell High Kyle: Wiggins is crushing it out of the gate and is worth considering as a sell-high guy before Klay gets up to speed and Poole starts taking more touches.
Kyle: MPJ was limited by foul trouble or would have played more.
Kyle: Jokic impressed with his first triple-double of the season and helping secure a win after their poor lose to the Jazz in the opener.
Josh: Nice offense, but he isn't a guy who I would rush to grab
Stream Kyle: KCP is a fine streamer and worth tracking in case his production proves more consistent on the Nuggets than it has been on other teams.
Josh: Impressed with his defense, but doubtful he is a fantasy factor.
Watch Kyle: Braun could be worth a look in very deep leagues for his
Josh: Minutes up without Murray. He is really good and is going to have some stream value through the season
Watch Kyle: Brown was given the spot start at PG with Murray resting, but Murray is playing Saturday, so Brown is just someone to watch, not chase beyond deeper leagues and conditional streaming.
Josh: The assists remain up, but I had some fears that he wouldn't get the role many hoped unless a star was sitting. That has been true.
Buy Low Kyle: A poor game on offense, particularly with the low attempts, but the 7 assists and 3 steals saved this line. Poole is a buy-low target after this empty scoring.
Josh: I don't Wiseman is doing enough to contribute to 12 team leaguers at the moment. It's just a stash for later, but I don't even know that pays off.
Droppable 12 teams Kyle: Wiseman is going to be OK to treat as a streamer and specialist, but he's also OK to hold for now with Draymond's minutes still somewhat limited. He's currently rostered so much for his upside and potential, though, and that's not playing out yet.
Kyle: What on planet sanity is coach Kerr thinking wasting so many minutes on JaMychal to open the season? He's insurance depth, not a super-sub.
Kyle: Nice production despite the short minutes for a bit. He could be considered a bit of a buy-low in Rotisserie, but I'd be worried about investing in H2H is rest days will be prevalent.
Kyle: Out of the rotation early as coach Kerr continues to spin the wheels on empty socks like JaMychal Green in big lineups that shouldn't even be contemplated when Moody is sitting on the bench waiting to play. Frustrating situations justify run-on sentences.
Droppable 10 teams Josh: This is looking like a drop. He didn't start without Murray and barely played. If he can't succeed in this situation, I don't see the upside unfortunately.. In shallow leagues, move on
Droppable 12 teams Kyle: Even with Murray out, Hyland's role was limited as Brown started at PG.
Kyle: Bizarrely low minutes for Donte as Kerr is still stubbing his toe on too many minutes for JaMychal Green.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: I don't see any reason for him to be on a roster
Droppable 12 teams Kyle: Gordon is best treated as a streamer in most leagues as long as the Nuggets are healthy.
Kyle: Not in the rotation even with Murray resting. Wow. Good job, Malone.
Buy Low Kyle: I'd be considering buying low for the right price. This was just an early rest. I doubt he sits b2bs for too long.
