With 11 games scheduled for Saturday, there was no shortage of options for the manager who needed to replace injured players.like a portland duo with Nasir Little Drew Eubanks didn’t make the most of his starting opportunity, but the others shone.And one of those players, Toronto’s Precious Achiuwa had one of the best games of his career with the Trail Blazers.
Achiuwa, who is enrolled in 43% of the Yahoo League, started for injured OG Anunoby (wrist) on Saturday night. Shooting 11-of-16 from the field and 4-of-4 from the foul line, Achiuwa produced 27 points, 13 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block and 1 3-pointer in 33 minutes to take the lead. I helped. The Raptors won 123-105. It should be noted that as with this performance, Achiuwa looked like a player that should be signed up in more leagues even before Saturday’s performance.
Over the past two weeks, he has been an 8-round player in a 9-cat format, averaging 15.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.8 blocks, 0.8 3-pointers and a 57.8 shooting percentage in approximately 30 minutes per game. % was. 69.0% off the field and off the foul line. Even if Anunoby is cleared to play against the Suns in Phoenix on Monday, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to keep Anunoby if he’s there, especially since the Raptors have four games in Week 16. More players won Fantasy Manager on Saturday.
Gafford started in mid-December and averaged 11.7 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.4 steals and 1.5 blocks in 23.8 minutes per game, but didn’t put together a game like Saturday’s victory. Above the Pelicans. Playing 29 minutes, he had 21 points, 12 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 5 blocked shots, and shot 8-of-11 from the field and 5-of-8 from the foul line. His two notes on this: The Wizards have been without Kristaps in his Porzingis (ankle) for his third straight game, and Pelicans starting his center Jonas Valanciunas, after playing his nine minutes. He was sent off for a foul on Fragrant 2. It’s not Gafford’s fault that the JV night ended early, but Porzingis’ absence has a lot to do with him being a fifth-rounder last week.
Ben Simmons has been dealing with knee pain for days, and it was Curry who joined Jack Vaughan in Saturday’s starting lineup against the Knicks. The veteran guard provided a modest but efficient stat line in a 122-115 win, posting 1 rebound, 3 assists and 2 3-pointers for 13 points (5 of 9 FG) in 33 minutes. , 2 out of 2 FT). Curry is one of his three Nets to provide top 100 value over the past two weeks. Kyrie Irving and Nicholas Claxton are the others. Until Simmons is cleared to return, he should be on the roster, and after that happens, keeping Curry might not be a bad idea.

Soo-chan has been a regular in the starting line-up this season when he is healthy, but his rookie fantasy value is a little lower. So while he’ll be a popular target once the season is over, few expected him to have a night like the Spurs’ overtime loss to the Suns. Sochan shot 11-of-25 from the field, shot 5-of-5 from the foul line, scored a career-high 30 points, had eight rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes. bottom. He didn’t provide any defensive stats, but that’s fine, especially considering Saw Chang’s improvement as a shooter.In these two weeks, he’s done his 50% off the field and fouled him off his line. achieved a shooting success rate of 86.4%.
Tali Eason (24%) and KJ Martin (29%)
Eason made the most of his starting opportunity in what looked like a pre-trade deadline stash before Saturday’s victory over the Pistons.When Kevin Porter Jr. (legs), With Jalen Green (calves) and Alperen Şengün (ill) all ruled out, the rookie forward had 16 points, 10 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals and one 3-pointer line in 31 minutes. Martin, who started after Porter went down in mid-January, was not to be outdone as he had 15 points, 13 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 blocked shot in 27 minutes to clinch the win.
Not only have Martin and Eason proven their fantastic short-term worth, but they will be worthy of a roster spot after the trade deadline, especially if the Rockets make a move. Eric Gordon (12% registered). Gordon was solid on Saturday, scoring 24 points with seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer. He had a tough night from deep (1 of 8), recording four turnovers, but his points, assists and steals were great counterpoints.
Ahead of Saturday’s 3-point loss to the Rockets, Pistons coach Dwayne Casey said of his starting lineup: Become “fluid” For the rest of the season, it explains Burks’ recent participation. After he had 20 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal and 3 3-pointers on Thursday against the Nets, on Saturday he had 21 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 6 3-pointers in 27 minutes. was recorded and finished. How long Burks will stay in the starting line-up remains to be seen, but he gave the fantastic manager no reason to ditch him in Saturday night’s performance. Cillian Hayes’ value has taken a hit with his return to the bench, but he’s not a player to give up, especially given Casey’s comments about the starting lineup.

Avdija is another Wizards player who took advantage of the additional opportunities presented by Porzingis’ injury. Last week’s sixth-round player finished his win over the Pelicans on Saturday with 15 points, nine rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes off the bench. Corey Kispert (3%) could replace Porzingis in the starting lineup, but he’s primarily a point and 3-pointer option, averaging 1 steal last week. Avdija is a better target for managers looking for all-around production.
Luka Doncic (ankle) joins Christian Wood (thumbs up) on the sidelines, the Mavericks will need someone else Spencer Dinwiddie steps up aggressively. Brock did so in Saturday’s loss to the Jazz, scoring 19 points with five rebounds, two assists and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes. , averaging 6.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.7 3-pointers in 29.5 minutes per game, so you can’t blame the fantasy manager for letting the block go. But Saturday’s performance showed that Doncic’s absence could pay off at times. But should Bullock be trusted as a consistent fantasy choice going forward? Probably not.
