Mike Trout went 2-for-6 with a home run, one RBI and a run scored during the Angels' 7-4 loss to the Royals.

Well, well, well...look who getting back into the swing of things, literally. Trout homered for the second-straight game and has now hit safely in each of his last five games, batting .400 (8-for-20) with the two long balls, five RBI and four runs scored over that span. Even better is that he's also only struck out twice over his last four games. There are those who have been just dying to trash Trout and the slump he's now breaking out of was the perfect opportunity to run him down. Too bad it's over though. Was he struggling? Yes. Was he putting himself on-pace for far too many strikeouts? Yes. But he's back in his groove and it looks like he is through the woods with the first real slump of his career. Move ahead with Trout with confidence.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Tyreke Evans had a solid night Friday, scoring 11 points with seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in the Pelicans 104-98 loss to the Celtics.

Evans has a done a great job since filling in for the injured Jrue Holiday at the point guard position for the Pelicans this season. Hes also been a blessing to fantasy owners as hes a stat sheet filler, averaging 16.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 1.2 steals per game this season. With news that Holiday is out of his walking boot but still experiencing pain it appears that Evans role is secure for the time being. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Eric Gordon scored 20 points with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in the Pelicans 104-98 loss to the Celtics on Friday.

Gordon has started to heat up again and though he scored just four points on Wednesday hes averaging 16.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 3.2 three-pointers over the past five games. Gordon is shooting 45.7-percent from three-point range which has been the key component to his recent surge. As long as Gordon is hitting threes again hes a worthy fantasy play in all formats. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Anthony Davis registered a double-double on Friday, scoring a game high 29 points with 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in the Pelicans 104-98 loss to the Celtics.

Davis has torched the Celtics throughout his career as Boston lacks an imposing front court. In their first meeting this season Davis scored 34 points with nine rebounds, four assists and three blocks. Fridays game was Daviss second since returning to the Pelicans lineup and he has not disappointed, averaging 34.0 points, 13.5 rebounds and 5.5 blocks between those two games. The shoulder injury will likely worry Davis owners throughout the season now that he has injured it multiple times but its encouraging to see that when he is on the court he is still one of the most dominant players in the game. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Evan Turner filled the stat sheet on Friday, scoring 16 points with six rebounds and six assists in the Celtics 104-98 win over the Pelicans.

Turner has a secure role in the Celtics rotation and while he overall production does not wow you in any one category he acquits himself nicely in points and daily leagues as he consistently contributes across the stat sheet. Over the past five games Turner is averaging 7.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game which averages out to nearly 20 fantasy points a night in most daily league formats at what is a relatively cheap price. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Brandon Bass scored 17 points with six rebounds, one assist and one steal in the Celtics 104-98 win over the Pelicans on Friday.

The return of Kelly Olynyk had figured to cut into Basss playing time but on this night Bass locked down the power forward spot while Olynyk and Tyler Zeller found themselves in a time share at the center position. Bass has proven throughout the season that he is more than capable of producing this type of stat line when given the minutes as he is averaging 15.2 points and 8.3 rebounds in games where he plays at least 30 minutes. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Isaiah Thomas scored a team high 27 points with one rebound and three assists in the Celtics 104-98 win over the Pelicans on Friday.

The reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week is making a case for back to back awards as hes been directly responsible for the Celtics recent success since his acquisition. Thomas scored 14 of his team high 27 points in the fourth quarter as he continues to be the go to guy when its crunch time, a role that Celtics have struggled to fill since Paul Pierce was traded. Though Thomas still starts the game on the bench his fantasy value is through the roof as he gets plenty of minutes and shots, making him a must start in all formats. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Mo Williams scored 23 points (7-14 FGA 4-8 3PA) and recored seven assists in the Hornets 103-94 victory over the Raptors on Friday night.

Williams continued his excellent play on Friday night, as he scored 23 points, shot 50-percent from both the floor and from three, and recorded seven assists in the process. Quietly, Williams has been one of the better players NBA since the trade, and has proved to be the best pickup in fantasy leagues since the deadline. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Terrence Ross scored eight points (3-10 FGA), grabbed three rebounds, recorded seven assists, and two steals in the Raptors 103-94 loss to the Hornets on Friday night.

Ross had high expectations after being reinserted into the starting lineup, but unfortunately, he struggled from the field and only scored eight points. Luckily he was able to sort of salvage his performance by recording seven assists, but this isn't something to become accustomed to from the lanky small forward. Analysis: Dom Murtha
