Suns SF TJ Warren
Moved back into the starting lineup with back to back 25 plus point performances. Suns are the lowest scoring team in the NBA at 101.2 PPG. Warren can put the ball in the basket and that’s what the Suns need if they want to improve on a 2-10 record. 3 games this week on the road with the Thunder on Monday, a Wednesday home tilt with the Spurs, followed by a home game Saturday with the Thunder.

Knicks C Mitchell Robinson
Getting the chance to start in David Fizdale’s rotation. Robinson is a raw offensive player that will help fantasy owners with defensive stats. Robinson is averaging 1.8 BPG and 4.4 RPG in 18.0 MPG. 3 road games this week on Wednesday vs. the Thunder, Friday vs. the Pelicans, and Sunday against the Magic. Owned in 0.5% of ESPN leagues. Owners looking to streaming defensive stats can play Robinson.
Raptors PF Pascal Siakam
8 straight contests scoring in double figures. 7 or more rebounds in 6 of 13 games played this season. Siakam is starting and averaging 27.9 MPG. Head Coach Nick Nurse may have his hand forced to play Siakam more. 4 games this week Monday home with the Pelicans, Wednesday home against Detroit, followed by back to back road games with the Celtics and Bulls starting on Friday. Could get extra run in those since Kawhi Leonard doesn’t play back to backs. Owned in 36% of ESPN leagues.
