Josh: Yeah, he is actually good and did it while playing with Ivey. He's now a top 50 player for the season
Kyle: Cade stayed on the offensive even with Ivey back in the lineup, which is a great sign for Cade's ceiling going forward. It's a little surprising these 35 points were a career high, but he's sure to surpass this soon. -- Highlights: https://twitter.com/jack_kelly_313/status/1586319437673730048
Josh: He is climbing the rankings and settling in. Dejounte isn't impacting him at all really.
Kyle: Young's FG% has been better the last two games, and he could be in line for a rise. It may not seem like it, but Young is worth considering as a potential buy-low target of sorts.
Josh: Big minutes with Hunter in foul trouble, but I wouldn't react to this performance
Kyle: Holiday earned extra run with Hunter in foul trouble
Josh: He looked solid in this game and remains a hold, but still fewer minutes than Capela.
Kyle: Okongwu is going to have full lines like this regularly but will also put up thinner lines a lot of nights as long as he's in a modest-to-middling bench role behind Capela.
Josh: Another 50% three point shooting day and it will cool off, undoubtedly.
Sell High Kyle: Bojan is shooting unsustainably well, so I'd at least be entertaining sell-high options if available in standards. Bojan should maintain useable value most the season, but his ceiling could drop on a better roster if traded at some point.
Josh: Assists are well down at the moment, but the scoring is solid
Kyle: Murray has had a couple short assists games, which is a concern in regard to his ceiling in that category, but he continues command huge minutes and will be fine even if his assists are a bit lower than his hot start may have pumped up hope to.
Josh: Weird bad game, but still brought the defense.
Kyle: Short minutes with the game in hand, but the low touches are concern. Luckily, Collins did well on the boards and blocks at least. It's hard to peg whether Collins is truly having a resurrection in fantasy this season or if he's best treated as a sell-high, as there are several avenues to him faltering as we go (injury risk, production inconsistency, minutes volatility).
Josh: Better game, but he is really only a backend guy with limited upside.
Kyle: Stewart's poor percentages have made him best used in H2H and Points leagues over Rotisserie this season. He has a little upside going forward if he continues to improve in his hybrid role, but it's also possible Stewart flounders some if his minutes get reduced around Duren's improvement down the stretch.
Kyle: Johnson got a few extra minutes with the game being in hand. He hasn't played enough yet to make an impression in fantasy, but an injury to Hunter or Collins could lead to a surprise big role
Droppable 12 teams Josh: Had some foul trouble, but I don't think there is much rationale for him being a 12 team guy
Kyle: Low minutes due to foul trouble. Hunter is OK to treat as a streamer, adding and dropping as needed in standards, though I'd be holding through Saturday's game at least.
Josh: He has fallen outside the top 100 and these last few games are what I thought was going to be the reality for Ivey to begin the season. Hold for now
Buy Low Kyle: Ivey was back from his illness and right back starting as well. It was a poor game, but he'll be better going forward, and this is certainly a time to try buying low.
Josh: It's a tough hold. There are a plethora of backup centres you can hold and Duren is one, but he may find himself in the G League when Bagley returns.
Josh: Really disappointed to see him play so little. Poor coaching, but it also wasn't a good game from Livers
Kyle: Inconsistent production, partially due to having too modest of a role. Livers has the talent to produce well for fantasy, but a good role may not be there for standard leagues unless injuries or a trade open the door.
Josh: Not a drop, but he could be. Wildly inconsitent and is rightfully not getting as many shots as Bogdanovic.
Kyle: Bey's minutes were short with this being another bad loss for the Pistons, and he's a streaky scorer, so the poor offense usually irons out. However, Bey's reduced touches so far may be hard to reclaim with Ivey added to the mix and Stewart trying to be a threat. Ultimately, he's been efficient and is getting to the line. He just needs to take more shots, which will likely find him, so this could be a buy-low stretch to consider.
Kyle: Joseph was back in a modest bench role after starting the previous game in Ivey's absence.
