Billy Hamilton went 1-for-3 with an RBI and his 40th stolen base in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.
Hamilton has his safely in four of his first six games since returning from the All-Star break, more importantly he has now logged a stolen base in back-to-back games. His fantasy value relies solely on his speed, and up to this point he has certainly lived up to the hype, batting .281 with 40 steals and 49 runs scored through 356 at-bats. It would be nice to see him get on base at a higher clip (.312 OBP), but that will come as he progresses in his big league career. Either way he is an elite base-stealer that is a must-own in all formats. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jahlil Okafor scored 14 points (7-18 FGA) with nine rebounds, three blocks, one steal and one assist in 30 minutes on Monday for the 76ers.
Concern came when Okafor switched to the four from the five as the guarding of stretch fours could cost him rebounds and make run more than he typically does on the block, but with the early results in, it seems that those concerns are not to be worried about. Following the best game of his young career on Saturday, Monday's outing was another very solid effort from the Duke product coming close to yet another double-double and contributing in every category. Now that we are passed the typical college season in terms of games played, it's good to see that the rookie is keeping his production steady. He should be a starter every night in all formats.
