Player Notes

  • Derrick Favors post another nice line
    Derrick Favors registered his first double-double of the season on Thursday at Dallas with 17 points, 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 35 minutes.

    Advice: He played just 27 minutes on Wednesday, but that was due to foul trouble. Clearly, Favors is going to be a major factor on both ends of the court and all signs point to a breakout season. Rotoworld.com

  • Carmelo Anthony scores 25 in shocking win
    Carmelo Anthony scored 25 points in a surprising 95-90 win over the Cavs on Thursday, adding two rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: He looked awful with just 14 points on Wednesday, but he was aggressive with a nice presence in the post tonight. Anthony only has 30 shots in his two games so far, which is down from his league-high 21.3 from last season. He hasn't been in isolation as much, but he's still going to be among the league leaders in scoring. Anthony is a top-10 fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com

  • Iman Shumpert scores 12 in starting lineup
    Iman Shumpert played 29 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday with 12 points, three rebounds, two assists and one turnover.

    Advice: He handled the ball a little bit for the Knicks, but he wasn't running the point. Shumpert isn't going to be involved enough on offense to warrant a pickup in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Anderson Varejao scores 10 with four boards
    Anderson Varejao started at center against the Knicks on Thursday with 10 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 27 minutes.

    Advice: It's going to be a split at the center spot, but Varejao has been a solid player to own even with minutes in the mid 20s. He is worth owning in standard leagues while he's healthy and should have better lines than this one. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Love looks great with 19 and 14 line
    Kevin Love scored 19 points against the Knicks on Thursday with 14 rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: He had a few beautiful assists and some wide-open looks from deep. Love didn't post up too much and was used more like Chris Bosh next to LeBron James, so there will be an adjustment period. That said, his fantasy owners have to be pleased with this start. Rotoworld.com
