Unless we’re talking Jevon or MCDub, Wendell is all we’ve got. The Bulls’ big man has been playing pretty well since returning from injury. The minutes are slowly increasing: 21, 27, 25, 33, and 29 in his last five outings. This was easily his best one yet, and I’m expecting top-80 production the rest of the way.

Young is somehow clinging to fantasy relevance even in diminished minutes. When those 20 minutes shrink to 15-17 with Markkanen’s return, that should spell the death of Thad.

Tate has been a top-65 player in the past two weeks, thanks in large part to his prodigious swiping abilities, but also the out-of-position affinity for boards. I will say the shooting seems unsustainable, though.

Most of the starters played low minutes as this was a blowout after three quarters. Covington still did enough to please fantasy owners, though he also turned the ball over four times. The whole Blazers team kind of rolled over on this one, so he gets a pass.

Dropped 18 in just 16 minutes of action. Little was efficient and racked up 5 boards along with 2 stocks. If he’s only playing 16 minutes now, though, with the Blazers all banged up, I don’t see him getting any more thrown his way when the team’s healthy.

This kid is so good already, and has been proving naysayers wrong especially with respect to his shooting. Averaging a respectable 80% from the line, LaMelo’s value is buoyed by his high assist and steal rates.
