San Antonio Spurs Fantasy Spin
DeMar DeRozan led the Spurs with five assists in Saturday’s win over the Pelicans, and he also tallied 13 points (3-of-10 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), six rebounds and one blocked shot in 29 minutes. DeRozan’s struggled with his shot since returning to the lineup after missing three games due to knee and ankle soreness, shooting a combined 8-of-26 from the field over the last two games. But he’s managed to contribute in other areas, accounting for 16 rebounds and nine assists in those outings. DeRozan’s averaging 6.3 rebounds and 6.2 assists to go along with his 21.4 points per game on the season, with the rebound and assist numbers being career-highs.
Sacramento Kings Fantasy Spin
Buddy Hield got off to a fast start during a 115-108 win over the 76ers on Saturday, finishing with 34 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and seven 3-pointers in 35 minutes. He scored 15 in the first 10 minutes and didn't really slow down. It would sound like a scorching hot take to say Hield has been the best shooter in 2019, but Hield's 70 treys in 2019 are third in the NBA (Harden, Curry). Plus, of the 103 players to hit at least 20 treys, nobody is even within five percent of Hield's 53.4 3P% (Klay Thompson 48.1). He's been a third-round player for total nine-cat value in 2019 and at this point he looks like a lock for at least top-50 value with a top-20 in the range of outcomes, as well.
