L. Kennard - SG
Luke Kennard dropped in 20 points in 21 minutes off the bench on Sunday, adding five triples, four rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in an easy win over Indiana.
Kennard has been inconsistent this season, but he's seen some increased opportunity while Lou Williams (hip) has been out. If he can do this again on Wednesday vs. the Kings, then he'll have our attention as a potential standard league guy, but for now, he's not much more than a speculative grab in deep leagues.

M. Morris - PF
Marcus Morris scored a season-high 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting in Sunday's easy win over the Pacers, adding four triples, seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover in 27 minutes off the bench.
The Clippers trailed the Pacers by 23-19 midway through the first quarter, but they ended it on a 17-3 run — led by a flurry of Mook buckets — to regain the lead for good. When asked about his uber-efficient shooting after the game, Morris responded, "I was wide open. If I can't make those I'm in the wrong place." He's starting to heat up with back-to-back double-digit scoring performances, so he's on the radar in deep leagues.

P. George - SF
Paul George scored 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting in Sunday's 129-96 win over the Pacers, adding two triples, seven boards, four assists, one steals and four turnovers across 34 minutes.
PG-13 was also a perfect 4-of-4 at the charity stripe tonight, and he's currently the only player in the league who is averaging at least 25 points a game to be in the 50/40/90 club. He's hitting career-highs in triples (4.1), assists (5.1) and FG% (51.0) and is posting first-round value on the season. Kawhi Leonard is also contributing first-round value, and he finished Sunday's game with 17 points (8-of-13 FG), seven rebounds, five assists, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 31 minutes.

P. Beverley - PG
Patrick Beverley (personal) scored 11 points on 3-of-7 shooting (3-of-4 FT) Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers, five rebounds six assists and a block over 26 minutes.
Beverley returned from a one-game personal absence, which sent Reggie Jackson back to the second unit. Jackson finished with just six points, three rebounds, three assists and three turnovers, but neither of these guys deserves your attention in standard 12-team leagues.

D. Sabonis - C
Domantas Sabonis double-doubled yet again on Sunday with 19 points, 14 rebounds, six assists and two steals across 34 minutes in a blowout loss to the Clippers.
Sabonis had his double-double by halftime, and he hit a ridiculous circus shot at the buzzer to close out the first half of action. He also finished the game with just one turnover, and this was his second straight game with multiple steals. Sabonis has been a steady early-round producer this season and he’s showing no signs of slowing down.

D. McDermott - PF
Doug McDermott hit 9-of-12 shots for 23 points, five triples, one rebound, two assists and three turnovers through 32 minutes as a starter on Sunday.
McDermott was en fuego to start this game, hitting his first six shots and scoring 18 of his 23 points through the first half of action on 7-of-8 shooting. He cooled off after that, but he likely made a difference if you streamed him. The Pacers don’t play again until Wednesday, and Myles Turner’s hand issue seemed minor, so McBuckets could be headed back to the second unit his next time out.

E. Sumner - PG
Edmond Sumner went 3-of-7 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line on his way to nine points, three rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, three steals and two turnovers through 21 minutes as a starter on Sunday.
Most of Sumner's production came during garbage time in this one, as he didn't get his first bucket until late in the third quarter. He's been starting over the past three games, but hasn't done much with the opportunity, posting meager averages of 9.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.7 turnovers per game on 46.2% shooting. You can do better in most leagues.
Added 12:37 am (EST)
A. Holiday - PG
Aaron Holiday was held to just two points on 1-of-5 shooting Sunday, to go with one rebound, two assists and one turnover in 19 minutes off the bench.
Holiday was scoreless through the first three-quarters of play, missing his first four shot attempts, and he finished 0-of-3 from distance. He had a big 16-point, 12-assist game against the Dubs on Tuesday, but he hasn’t done much since with back-to-back single-digit stinkers. He’s far too inconsistent to roster in most 12-team leagues. His brother, Justin, finished with 15 points, three triples, three rebounds, one assist, three steals and two turnovers across 35 minutes as a starter, and he should continue to have solid value until Jeremy Lamb (knee) and T.J. Warren (foot) get back.
