Julius Randle finished Wednesday's 122-101 win over the Hawks with 25 points (9-of-19 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), 11 rebounds, two assists, and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes. Randle is up to 38 double-doubles on the season, with Wednesday's being his fourth in five games. He's providing 5th-round value in 9-cat formats over the last two weeks, averaging 25.1 points, 10.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 0.6 steals, and 2.8 3-pointers. That matches Randle's value for the season as a whole, a big reason why he's headed to Salt Lake City for this weekend's All-Star Game. Randle, Jalen Brunson, and RJ Barrett (17/5/2/1 in 32 minutes) were the only starters to score in double figures for the Knicks.
Washington Wizards DFS Spin
Bradley Beal (right knee soreness) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Knicks after missing practice Thursday. Beal has yet to practice since the team returned from the All-Star break however the fact that he is still just being listed as questionable should be a positive sign for fantasy managers. Keep tabs on his status though, as Beal has been no stranger to last minute scratches this season.
