Tyreke Evans scored 22 points and had a career-high 15 assists in a 102-95 win over the Jazz. He also had five rebounds, three steals and one block.
Although he isn't the most consistent fantasy contributor, he has been performing at a high level of late averaging 20.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 8.6 assists over his last five games. As long as he continues to shoot a high percentage from the field (50.6 FG PCT) there is no reason to think he will slow down anytime soon. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Wandy Rodriguez allowed just one run on five hits and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings against the Angels on Friday.
Sigh. He’s like that bad penny you just can’t get rid of, no matter how hard you try. Just when you think Major League teams have had enough of him and his boring mediocrity, someone goes and brings good ol’ Wandy back from the dead. It’s difficult to imagine that he’ll last long with the Rangers, especially with the number of home runs he normally allows, but consider this the warning to stay away. This start may not look bad on the surface, but it’s just setting you up for something downright horrible in the future. He’ll get another start next week against the Mariners, but we cannot, in good conscience, recommend using him. Analysis: Howard Bender
