My love for Nikola Jokic has been well documented in this little internet corner so the introduction of today’s article couldn’t have been anything else than the passing masterclass that Jokic provided us in yesterday’s game vs the Memphis Grizzles. Enjoy all his assists in a single video.

Of course, special mention needs to be made for the following insane between the legs pass which resulted in a Bruce Brown dunk.

I mean this is basketball poetry in motion. Jokic is clearly on another level in terms of court vision than anyone else in the league and is always a very fun player to watch.

Regarding last week’s suggestions, Walker Kessler was already a hot add but Kelly Olynyk missing some time with an ankle injury makes him even more must add, while Jordan Goodwin had a good run and is still a steals specialist but with the Wizards healthier, he becomes more of a 16-team league player. Finally, Maxi Kleber got unlucky and injured his hamstring in practice, while the two “Sell” suggestions from last week, Jalen Smith and John Wall did nothing to change their status as players I don’t want in my fantasy team.


Jamal Murray: Second time this year that Murray is part of the “Buy” section, and for good reason. I still think he is rusty from all the missed time and his stats are not that far from his season averages, with a notable exception being his shooting percentages, both from the field and from the charity line. I am very confident that he will only improve as the season progresses and a questionable tag today presents a very good opportunity to float some buy low offers to try and take advantage of his current shooting slump.

Markelle Fultz: Although there have been some subpar games since his return, Fultz has arguably been the best playmaker in Orlando and has been integral to their 6-game winning streak that ended by one point in Atlanta on Monday. It is very rare to find his combination of 5.1 assists and 1.4 steals on the waiver wire so I really like him as an add as a safe top 150 player with upside. Act now before it is too late to get him for free (57% owned).

Tyus Jones: No, Ja Morant is not injured (although he did look to nurse his hand on his last game at Denver) but you would be excused to think that was the case, as that is when Jones is usually a suggested add. However, Jones played almost 30 minutes alongside Morant’s 38 minutes in Memphis’ last game and can provide deeper league value all year long. In 14-teamers or deeper there are worse ways to utilize a roster spot than giving it to Jones, who is available in those kind of leagues (39% owned).


Tyler Herro: The development program of the Miami Heat has done it again. Herro, a 2019 first round pick, can be safely added to the numerous examples of young players improving significantly while they wear a Miami jersey, as he has clearly taken the next step in his career this year, both in terms of real life play as well as his fantasy production. With averages of 21.1 points, 3.4 triples and 6.1 rebounds, he has been a top 35 player, but his last two weeks have been exceptional with 5.3 triples, so this presents the perfect opportunity to try and sell above his usual value. I don’t doubt his improvement, but he has taken advantage of multiple injuries to the Heat roster and, if I could snag a top 15 player for him, I would explore those options.

Cole Anthony: Directly related to the rise of Markelle Fultz is the fall of Anthony, who played 22 and 20 minutes in the last two games respectively. While I do believe that he will have the occasional offensive outburst, remember that both Jalen Suggs and Gary Harris are still sidelined, so his minutes are bound to take a further hit. So check his trade value and try to could package him in a trade right now, before that happens.
