Fantasy Player Updates & News  2016 MLB Draft Guide Is Here!

Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-2 with a base hit, a walk, a run scored, and a stolen base in Monday's win over the Phillies.

Stanton has yet to have been caught stealing going seven-for-seven in stolen base attempts this year.The seven steals are second most on the team behind injured outfielder Christian Yelich's 10. ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Aaron Afflalo scored 14 points (4-of-15 FGA, 2-of-7 3PA, 4-of-4 FTA) and grabbed five rebounds on Friday night against the Grizzlies.

He started out mighty cold on Friday night, however down the stretch Afflalo really turned on the clutch gene, as he rattled in two 3-pointers in the final minutes, one of which was with only a handful of seconds left. On the night, he finished with 14 points – his season average – while his five rebounds came in just above par. Hopefully the time off during the break gives him a chance to rest up good, as the Knicks are going to need the Afflalo of December and early January if they plan on making a second half playoff push.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Jose Calderon scored 18 points (7-of-14 FGA, 3-of-7 3PA, 1-of-1 FTA), grabbed eight rebounds, and recorded five assists on Friday night against the Grizzlies.

An appropriate moniker for Calderon right now might be “Two-Face,” as he, just a night ago, finished with zero points in what will likely be remembered as his worst 13 minutes of basketball of his career. On Friday night, he bounced back in a strong way, proving to be much more aggressive on both ends of the floor. He finished with 18 points on the strength of 50-percent shooting and three 3-pointers, while he also added five assists, and a totally out of character eight rebounds. Unfortunately his bounce back big game wasn’t enough to get the Knicks the win in the absence of Carmelo Anthony. Hopefully this is a performance that he can build off of headed into the second half.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Kristaps Porzingis scored 17 points (6-of-12 FGA, 3-of-6 3PA, 2-of-2 FTA), grabbed 10 rebounds, and blocked six shots on Friday night against the Grizzlies.

Just a night removed from where it seemed solidified that KP had hit the “Rookie Wall,” he goes out and drops a tremendous stat line of 17 points – on the strength of three 3’s – 10 rebounds, and six blocks against a streaking Memphis Grizzlies team. His field goal percentage, at 50-percent, was his best in weeks, while he looked more active since he fell ill to a respiratory infection almost two weeks ago now. Hopefull this is something that he can build off of headed into the break, while he hopefully recharges his batteries and gets ready for a second half Knicks playoff push.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Marc Gasol scored 10 points (5-of-11 FGA) and grabbed seven rebounds on Friday night against the Knicks.

Gasol did nothing particularly special in the box score on Friday night, however his defense was supreme, as he held his counterpart, Robin Lopez, to under 10 points in 30 minutes to go along with a -15 plus/minus rating. This unfortunately will not help fantasy owners much, as his statistical decline this season has really hurt owners who drafted him as a top fantasy center. During the game he flashed plenty of ability, the same of which he had just a couple of years ago when he was dominating opposing bigmen, so maybe his usage is just down due to the overall struggles that the Grizzlies have faced this season. In any event, Gasol is locked up for another five years, so he likely isn’t going anywhere carrying a top-dollar price tag, so he and the Grizzlies are just going to have to figure things out. Expect his stats to return somewhat back to form as the second half rolls around.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Matt Barnes scored 12 points (4-of-9 FGA, 2-of-5 3PA, 2-of-2 FTA) and grabbed seven rebounds on Friday night against the Knicks.

In his return to The Garden, Barnes really heard it from the New York faithful, which was in blind support of their fearless leader in the form of head coach, Derek Fisher. If you didn’t know by now, Fisher and Barnes have recently been connected in a very messy love triangle where Fisher apparently stole Barnes’ ex. Barnes was very outspoken about he wants to physically confront Fisher and teach him a lesson about home wrecking. Barnes just recently came off of suspension due to his actions and wouldn’t you know it, one of his first games back happened to be against Derek Fisher’s New York Knicks. Well, instead of stabbing Fisher for real, Barnes focused his emotions in hurling proverbial daggers into coach Fisher and the Knicks in the form of incredibly clutch three point jumpers. He was integral in the Memphis victory, and for now has the upper hand in this “Days of our Lives” like saga.  Analysis: Dom Murtha
