10/21/2017 George Hill, Sac, G
George Hill scored 21 points Friday on 9-of-12 shooting as the Sacramento Kings defeated the Dallas Mavericks 93-88. Hill pulled down five rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +14 in his 31:56 of playing time. He added two steals. Hill went 3 of 3 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Hill played a huge role in the Kings' first win of the season by hitting a few big shots down the stretch of a game he was on target just about the entire night. Though the 31-year-old does carry some fantasy risk due to his lengthy injury history, he's one of the league's better outside shooters and fully capable of being a consistent asset when healthy.
10/21/2017 Kosta Koufos, Sac, F-C
Kosta Koufos scored three points Friday on 1-of-4 shooting as the Sacramento Kings topped the Dallas Mavericks 93-88. Koufos pulled down five rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -9 in his 21:09 of playing time. He added one block and one steal.
10/21/2017 Buddy Hield, Sac, SG
Buddy Hield scored 13 points Friday, going 4 of 11 from the field, as the Sacramento Kings topped the Dallas Mavericks 93-88. Hield grabbed six rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +7 in his 27:28 on the floor. Hield went 1 of 6 from 3-point range.

Analysis: After going 3 for 7 from 3-point range while netting 19 points in the season opener, Hield's outside shot was a bit off on this night. The second-year guard has been contributing in the rebound and assist categories, though, and there's fantasy upside to be found as long as he continues not to be shy with his shots.
10/21/2017 Justin Jackson, Sac, SF
Justin Jackson scored two points Friday on 1-of-4 shooting as the Sacramento Kings defeated the Dallas Mavericks 93-88. Jackson grabbed four rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +3 in his 17:12 of playing time.
10/21/2017 Skal Labissiere, Sac, F-C
Skal Labissiere scored eight points Friday on 4-of-9 shooting as the Sacramento Kings defeated the Dallas Mavericks 93-88. Labissiere pulled down five rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -1 in his 12:57 of playing time. He added one block.
10/21/2017 De'Aaron Fox, Sac, PG
De'Aaron Fox scored nine points Friday, going 4 of 13 from the field, as the Sacramento Kings defeated the Dallas Mavericks 93-88. Fox grabbed six rebounds and dished out 10 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -7 in his 26:19 of playing time. He tacked on one steal. Fox went 1 of 1 from behind the arc.

Analysis: The talented rookie point guard posted his first career double-digit assist game after scoring 14 points in his NBA debut on Wednesday. Fox's short-term fantasy outlook remains a bit limited due to the fact he's playing about 25 minutes a game off the bench, but his potential is considerable.
10/21/2017 Willie Cauley-Stein, Sac, F-C
Willie Cauley-Stein scored 10 points Friday, going 4 of 7 from the field, as the Sacramento Kings topped the Dallas Mavericks 93-88. Cauley-Stein pulled down 11 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +14 in his 26:51 on the floor. He added one block.

Analysis: Cauley-Stein has had a very promising start to his third NBA season, having notched double-doubles in each of the Kings' first two games and putting up 21 points in Wednesday's opener. It's still very early, but he could be on his way to a breakthrough season.
10/21/2017 Elfrid Payton, Orl, PG
Magic coach Frank Vogel said an MRI exam showed Payton sustained a "mild to moderate" hamstring strain Friday against Brooklyn and would miss some games.

Analysis: D.J. Augustin got the starting nod Saturday in Cleveland.
10/21/2017 Dante Cunningham, NO, F
Dante Cunningham scored six points Friday, going 2 of 8 from the field, as the New Orleans Pelicans lost to the Golden State Warriors 128-120.

10/21/2017 E'Twaun Moore, NO, G-F

10/21/2017 Jordan Crawford, NO, G
Jordan Crawford scored 13 points Friday on 5-of-10 shooting as the New Orleans Pelicans lost to the Golden State Warriors 128-120. Crawford did not grab a rebound but dished out five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +1 in his 26:37 of playing time. He added one steal. Crawford went 3 of 3 from behind the arc.
10/21/2017 Jrue Holiday, NO, PG
Jrue Holiday scored 13 points Friday on 5-of-18 shooting as the New Orleans Pelicans fell to the Golden State Warriors 128-120. Holiday grabbed six rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -9 in his 34:36 on the floor. He added one steal. Holiday went 2 of 6 from behind the arc.

Analysis: Holiday is off to a dreadful start. He's 7 for 29 from the field with seven assists and six turnovers.
10/21/2017 Darius Miller, NO, G-F
Darius Miller scored four points Friday on 2-of-4 shooting as the New Orleans Pelicans fell to the Golden State Warriors 128-120. Miller grabbed two rebounds and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -11 in his 20:10 of playing time.
10/21/2017 Ian Clark, NO, G
Ian Clark scored 14 points Friday, going 5 of 7 from the field, as the New Orleans Pelicans fell to the Golden State Warriors 128-120. Clark pulled down one rebound and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 22:20 of playing time. Clark went 4 of 4 from 3-point range.
10/21/2017 DeMarcus Cousins, NO, F-C
DeMarcus Cousins scored 35 points Friday, going 11 of 22 from the field, as the New Orleans Pelicans fell to the Golden State Warriors 128-120. Cousins grabbed 15 rebounds and dished out five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +6 in his 32:37 on the floor. He added one block and three steals. Cousins went 3 of 7 from behind the arc.

Analysis: Both Cousins and Anthony Davis have put up monster double-doubles in each of the Pelicans' first two games, so it's clear that being on the same team doesn't hurt the fantasy value of the other. It's the lack of talent elsewhere that has the team off to an 0-2 start.
10/21/2017 Anthony Davis, NO, F-C
Anthony Davis scored 35 points Friday on 15-of-21 shooting as the New Orleans Pelicans lost to the Golden State Warriors 128-120. Davis pulled down 17 rebounds and had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of -18 in his 52:09 on the floor. He added three steals. Davis went 3 of 3 from 3-point range.

Analysis: This was a second monster double-double in as many games for Davis, but this time he had a much better shooting performance after going 9 for 23 from the field in the opener. Surprisingly, though, he has only one blocked shot.
10/21/2017 David West, GS, PF
David West scored 10 points Friday, going 4 of 5 from the field, as the Golden State Warriors topped the New Orleans Pelicans 128-120. West pulled down one rebound and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -2 in his 12:54 on the floor.
10/21/2017 Andre Iguodala, GS, G-F
Andre Iguodala scored seven points Friday, going 3 of 4 from the field, as the Golden State Warriors topped the New Orleans Pelicans 128-120. Iguodala pulled down seven rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 22:20 of playing time.

Analysis: Iguodala appears to be just fine after having to sit out the opener with a back strain.
10/21/2017 Zaza Pachulia, GS, C
Zaza Pachulia scored eight points Friday, going 3 of 6 from the field, as the Golden State Warriors topped the New Orleans Pelicans 128-120. Pachulia grabbed nine rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +5 in his 21:01 on the floor.
