    Nets' Thaddeus Young: Scores team-high 20 points in victory Monday

    Young scored 20 points (9-15 FG, 2-2 FT) to go with seven rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and a steal over 37 minutes in a 105-104 victory over the Nuggets on Monday. Young has continued to anchor Brooklyn's offensive production, now averaging 18 points over his last four games. The 27-year-old Young, who has logged at least 34 minutes of court time in seven of his last eight games, has been the face of consistency for a team that has otherwise come up short of all expectations. After a day of rest, Young will look to continue his scoring ways against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Nets' Thaddeus Young: Scores 22 points to go with 10 boards

    Young compiled 22 points (10-15 FG, 2-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block across 39 minutes in Saturday's 103-98 loss to the 76ers. Young tied his season high with five turnovers in the outing, but his deft shooting touch and strong contributions on the defensive end helped keep the Nets afloat on a night they received very little assistance from the other four starters. The veteran forward has emerged as one of the focal points of the offense under interim coach Tony Brown, as he's received at least 35 minutes in each of the past three games.

    Nets' Thaddeus Young: Massive double-double in Friday win

    Young scored 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-2 FT) to go along with 14 rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 39 minutes on Friday in a win against the Kings. Young was phenomenal on Friday, getting it done in every facet of the game. This performance shows just how successful the Nets can be when all of their key pieces are playing to the best of their abilities, but it was against the defensively-inept Kings and we shouldn't expect too many like this going forward. Young will continue to have personal success and should be deployed in every fantasy format. On Saturday, the Nets face the Sixers and Young is considered a strong play in that one.

    Nets' Thaddeus Young: Double-doubles in Wednesday loss

    Young scored 16 points (6-12 FG, 4-6 FT) to go along with 14 rebounds and an assist in 35 minutes on Wednesday in a loss to the Pacers. Young added to his impressive 2015-16 campaign with yet another double-double on Wednesday against the Pacers. Being matched up against rookie phenom Myles Turner, Young went under the radar and posted a performance that shows his overall value to the Nets. Young will continue to be the second option on this struggling team, but he still holds an immense value in every fantasy format. In season-long leagues, it would be great to have him, but in the DFS game, he remains more of a matchup-based play.

    Nets' Thaddeus Young: Five steals and a double-double in Friday's loss

    Young scored 11 points (4-13 FG, 3-4 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and five steals in 41 minutes during Friday's loss to the Mavericks. The steals matched his season high and the double-double was his 21st of the season, tying his previous career high set (in 76 games) with the Sixers in '12-'13. Young is having a big year for the talent-starved Nets, and barring a trade he should continue to pile up production in the second half.

    Nets' Thaddeus Young: Double-double in win over Thunder

    Young scored 14 points (7-17 FG) to go along with 14 rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 39 minutes during Sunday's win over the Thunder. Coming off a quiet performance in Friday's loss to the Jazz, Young responded with his first double-double since Jan. 13, while turning in his best rebounding effort in nearly three weeks. His shooting percentage has dipped significantly since the start of November, but that could be a function of the increased number of shots he has attempted as he assumes a larger offensive role. Young should continue to play a big part at both ends of the court for the lowly Nets, and he is easily on pace to set a new career-high in rebounding.

    Nets' Thaddeus Young: Scores team-high 18 in Saturday's loss

    Young scored a team-high 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-4 FT) while adding seven rebounds, two steals and a block in 27 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Hawks. He continues to produce solid numbers, averaging 14.4 points and 9.4 boards in nine January games, but the Nets have now dropped seven of their last eight games despite Young's contributions. Given all the Nets' injuries, though, his spot in the starting lineup seems very secure, even when rookie Rondae Hollis-Jefferson returns from his ankle injury in a month or so.

    Nets' Thaddeus Young: Posts 19 points, 11 boards Wednesday

    Young recorded 19 points (9-18 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 39 minutes during the Nets' 110-104 win over the Knicks on Wednesday. Young is a nightly double-double threat, and one of the lone legitimate scoring options on a Nets team that recently lost Jarrett Jack (knee) for the season. Considering his role and rock-solid reputation, Young is likely to be extremely valuable in most fantasy formats so long as he can stay healthy.

    Nets' Thaddeus Young: Returns to form in Monday's loss to Celtics

    Young turned in a solid performance posting 23 points (9-18 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with 15 rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 38 minutes in Monday's 103-94 loss to the Celtics. It was the first time all season that Young hit two 3-pointers, as the double-double machine went back to work on the boards. Normally when Young has one of these types of games, it's a precursor for whats to come, so perhaps it's time to jump back on him in daily formats.

    Nets' Thaddeus Young: Double-double in Saturday's win

    Young scored 16 points (7-16 FG, 2-2 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and a steal in 33 minutes during Saturday's win over the Celtics. After racking up nine double-doubles in 15 December games, Young has started off the new year right where he left off 2015. He's now got 17 double-doubles in 33 games, and should blow past his previous career high of 21, set in 76 games during the '12-'13 season.
