Bradley Beal had another big game on the stat sheet with 33 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Heat during a 115-109 loss. He did go back to the locker room in the first quarter, but he was able to return quickly. Beal is batting 1.000 with productive fantasy lines in each game since the John Wall injury, and he'll continue to crush while on the roster.

He's now made 5+ triples in seven games on the season. PG continues to post top-5 value and is firmly in the MVP conversation. It's hard to understate how awesome he's been.
