Tobias Harris Headshot

Harris collected 31 points (13-24 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 38 minutes in Saturday's 111-107 victory over the Knicks.

Harris doubled took 12 more shots than any other player on the roster Saturday night, proving the belief that with Marcus Morris now in Boston, Harris will have an expanded role in the front court for the Pistons. Through the first three games, Harris has averaged 24.3 points and 6.3 rebounds per game, numbers that are more than serviceable to fantasy owners.

Patrick Beverley Headshot

Beverley scored 15 points (6-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding five steals, two rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes during Saturday's 130-88 rout of the Suns.

The 29-year-old guard had free rein to pick pockets against an extremely young and inexperienced Suns squad, and Beverley now has seven steals through two games to begin his tenure with the Clippers. Milos Teodosic suffered a foot injury Saturday, however, and if it proves to be serious, Beverley may be required to handle more distribution duties than he has so far -- after averaging a career-high 4.2 assists per game last season with Houston, he has only three in total to begin 2017-18.
9:36 am (EST)
Lou Williams Headshot

Williams scored 18 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding six assists and three rebounds in 24 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 130-88 rout of the Suns.

The 30-year-old has slid comfortably into Jamal Crawford's old role as a provider of instant offense off the Clippers' bench, but Williams has also shown some impressive distribution skills in the early going as well. With the team's point guard situation still a little unsettled without Chris Paul around, Williams could continue to produce elevated assist totals, although he's unlikely to keep up his current pace in that category given that his career high is only 4.2 assists per game, set back in 2009-10.
9:28 am (EST)
Blake Griffin Headshot

Griffin scored 29 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 12-14 FT) while adding eight rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 28 minutes during Saturday's 130-88 rout of the Suns.

While Griffin's scoring and rebounding haven't been a surprise to begin the season, his three-point shooting certainly has. After making a career-high 38 treys in 2016-17 on 113 attempts (33.6 percent), he's come out firing this season, draining six of his first 11 shots from beyond the arc through two games. While his efficiency from that range will undoubtedly decline as defenses adjust, if the 28-year-old has added stretch-four capabilities to his already outstanding skill set, he could be in line for a career year from a fantasy perspective.
9:22 am (EST)
Tyson Chandler Headshot

Chandler scored six points (3-4 FG) while adding 14 rebounds in 24 minutes during Saturday's 130-88 loss to the Clippers.

The 35-year-old's skills are declining, but he can still attack the glass with the best of them. Chandler seems increasingly out of place on the youngest roster in the NBA, but as long as he's in Phoenix he should remain the starting center and supply solid rebounding numbers, at least on a per-minute basis.
9:16 am (EST)
Alex Len Headshot

Len scored 15 points (3-6 FG, 9-11 FT) while adding seven rebounds, two assists and a block in 24 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 130-88 loss to the Clippers.

He looks fully recovered from the ankle injury that cost him the Suns' first game of the season, and the 24-year-old center is settling into his role as the relative greybeard on a ridiculously young second unit for Phoenix. His minutes and fantasy value will remain capped while he works behind Tyson Chandler on the depth chart, but should the veteran get hurt or traded, Len seems the most likely choice to step into the starting five.
9:09 am (EST)
Ricky Rubio Headshot

Rubio scored 16 points (5-14 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding six rebounds, five assists and a steal in 37 minutes during Saturday's 96-87 win over the Thunder.

The 27-year-old Spaniard failed to dish 10 assists for the first time in three games to begin his tenure with the Jazz, but Rubio was still plenty productive. He's taken on a little more of the scoring load so far for a Utah lineup that doesn't have a go-to primary option, but otherwise his numbers are right in line with the usual output he generated in Minnesota.
9:01 am (EST)
Joe Ingles Headshot

Ingles scored 19 points (7-12 FG, 5-9 3Pt) while adding three rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 27 minutes during Saturday's 96-87 win over the Thunder.

He's taken full advantage of Rodney Hood's absences due to illness and a strained calf so far, draining 12 treys through three games. Ingles will likely see his looks and usage decline once Hood is 100 percent, but his spot in the starting five seems secure and a career year will almost certainly be the result for the 30-year-old.
8:57 am (EST)
Rudy Gobert Headshot

Gobert scored 16 points (8-11 FG) while adding 13 rebounds, two assists and a steal in 33 minutes during Saturday's 96-87 win over the Thunder.

While he didn't get credited with a block, Gobert's presence in the paint was a big factor in a stifling Jazz defense that held the Thunder to 14 points in the first quarter and limited Russell Westbrook to just six points on the night. The 25-year-old center has now kicked off the season with three straight double-doubles, and he figures to be among the league leaders in that category once again after racking up 58 of them in 2016-17.
8:51 am (EST)
Paul George Headshot

George scored 22 points (8-19 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding five rebounds, five steals and two assists in 38 minutes during Saturday's 96-87 loss to the Jazz.

He and Carmelo Anthony were the only Thunder players to eventually solve the Jazz defense, but their efforts weren't enough to produce a come-from-behind victory. George has now drained nine treys through his first two games with OKC, and if he keeps up that volume from the outside he'll still be an elite fantasy asset even if some of his other numbers slip from his time as the primary focus of the Pacers' offense.
