Must Add 12 teams Josh: Be prepared for pain , but he was the main ebenficiary of the Siakam/Achiuwa absences. The inconsistency will kill and when Siakam is back< i would drop, but he should be added now
Sell High Kyle: Boucher had a big night with strong minutes, but this came with Siakam and Achiuwa out and it being a blowout loss. I wouldn't be chasing Boucher hard, but he's a fine streamer and someone to sell-high on before Siakam is back.
Watch Josh: File it awat, but I doubt it's going to be a thing
Watch Kyle: Omoruyi took advantage of Bazley being out, JRE being a Coach's Decision-DNP, and this game being a blowout to put up a heck of a line, but we can't trust Omoruyi to be a consistent part of the rotation, so this isn't much more than something to watch for now. I'd even have some trepidation about deep-league fliers given how obtuse the Thunder rotation is from day to day and week to week.
Josh: Had literally bee n out of the rotation and now played 34 minutes. With a great line. I am not adding, but I am watching
Stream Kyle: Mr. Wiggins had a great game in start, and he's worth considering as a flier in very deep leagues or streaming conditionally if he starts again, but I'd be reluctant to chase this in standards given how much the rotation waffles from game to game.
Must Add 12 teams Josh: It's going to be rocky, but you can't leave Poku on the wire
Must Add Kyle: APokulypse was awesome with a season-high 4 blocks, and he would have been better if this weren't a blowout. Poku has been getting good minutes of late and is producing well. He should be on someone's roster in all standard leagues to see where this goes. He's arguably a sell-high, but with coach D benching JRE here, Poku's prospects are looking up.
Kyle: Juancho earned some run in the blowout and played well, but this generally isn't even worth chasing in very deep leagues as Hernangomez isn't in the rotation consistently. Though, he could get a more regular role while Achiuwa is out.
Josh: Rebounds have really started to 'rebound' after some low games to begin the season.
Kyle: It's hard to argue about taking the ball out of SGA's hands, especially on a night that G-Diddy had 7 turnovers, but Giddey's best skill is his passing, so it's a little strange the Thunder aren't putting him in position to be the primary more, even if SGA continues to be the focus of those passes.
Stream Kyle: Mann has conditional streaming value but is hard to trust with his modest-to-middling role most games.
Maybe Add 14 teams Josh: The potential is there. The role isn't quite yet, but he deserves to be considered in deeper leagues
Watch Kyle: Jalen took advantage of big minutes in a blowout to post a career-high 11 assists. Impressive, and totally in his arsenal, but Jalen usually won't get to touch the ball this much while SGA and Giddey are healthy. This is mostly just something to watch for now. Deeper leagues could take the flier, but don't be surprised if Jalen's minutes are middling next game.
Josh: In a category league of 12 teams, you can leave Dort on the wire.
Hold Kyle: Short minutes in a blowout. Otherwise, the line was good and this is a moment to hold most places, especially with another game Sunday.
Kyle: "Only" 2 steals this time out.
Buy Low Josh: I would try to buy low, but I would not have the expectation that some did of Barnes being a top 40 player.
Josh: Outside the top 200 over the last week. Without insane steals, Trent looks more like a fringe 12 team guy. Hold for now
Kyle: Short minutes are a concern, but these came in a blowout loss, so I wouldn't be reacting too much to this. Here's the thing, though. With his poor play of late, Trent could be considered a buy-low target, but I would be cautious about paying too much, as he could get pushed to a smaller bench role at some point this season.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: He will have better games, but I expect them to be so sporadic that holding him won't be worth it.
Droppable Kyle: Koloko is droppable as needed for most leagues, but he also has a good role at the moment, so I wouldn't be rushing to drop him if I need to stream his blocks Saturday.
Josh: We hope the reason he left the game early is not going to cause further issues
Kyle: This game was over, so hopefully FVV sitting out late with an illness isn't much of a concern, though it could keep him out of the b2b Saturday.
Josh: Blowout minutes
Droppable Kyle: Achiuwa is OK to drop as needed beyond deeper leagues where he should just be thrown in an IL slot.
Josh: From starting to not playing
Droppable Kyle: Out of the rotation? Coach Daigneault said this was simply to give other players opportunity.
Kyle: Muscala will be in and out of the rotation randomly.
Kyle: In deeper dynasty, this is a buy-low stretch for Dieng. He's down in the G-League playing great. His best skill is his passing, and he doesn't get to show that in the NBA with the ball always in SGA or Giddey's hands.
