Nikola Jokic scored 31 points on 14-of-19 shooting with 11 rebounds, five assists, and four turnovers in 26 minutes on Saturday against the Knicks. Jokic has double-doubled in nine of his last ten games, posting averages of 27.6 points 13.5 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.6 triples made on 37.2% shooting. The former league MVP is a top-two fantasy player and we expect this to be the trend as long as he is healthy. Enjoy the ride.

Chicago Bulls DFS Spin

Zach LaVine played 37 minutes in Saturday's 111-107 win over the Nets, accounting for 31 points (9-of-20 FGs, 11-of-13 FTs), eight rebounds, six assists, one blocked shot, and two 3-pointers. LaVine has now scored 25 points or more in three straight, and four of his last six games. While he didn't have his best night shooting the basketball, the athletic wing made up for that by scoring 11 points from the foul line. LaVine's providing 3rd-round value in 9-cat formats for the season, and he entered Saturday's game averaging a career-high 5.3 rebounds per game. The unfortunate thing for managers who have LaVine rostered is that Chicago has just three games on the schedule for next week, beginning Monday night against the Nuggets.
