    Pelicans' Ryan Anderson: Scores 24 in Saturday's win

    Anderson scored 24 points (8-15 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding six rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block in 26 minutes off the bench during Saturday's win over the Nets. He's now scored at least 22 points in four straight games, capping off a big January in which Anderson averaged 19.1 points, 5.9 boards, 2.9 threes and 0.9 steals a game. The Pelicans are now 7-2 in their last nine games, in large part due to Anderson's strong play, and despite their poor start to the season sit just three games out of a playoff spot.

    Pelicans' Ryan Anderson: Tallies season-high 36 points in Thursday victory

    Anderson tallied a season-high 36 points (13-25 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds and four assists over 40 minutes in Thursday's 114-105 victory over the Kings. The eight-year veteran made the most of his starting opportunity in place of Anthony Davis (concussion), turning in a dominating all-around performance. While Anderson has abundantly proven capable of terrific production off the bench, he has occasionally underwhelmed in previous starts this season, but his 16 first-quarter points Thursday seemed to indicate that this wouldn't be the case against the Kings' vulernable defense. Anderson could well be in for another start on Saturday versus the Nets, making him an outstanding play once again in all fantasy formats

    Pelicans' Ryan Anderson: Effective fill-in for injured Davis

    Anderson scored 22 points (7-20 FG, 5-6 FT, 3-6 3Pt) to go along with nine rebounds and a block in 37 minutes during Monday's 112-111 loss to the Rockets. The 27-year-old assumed a larger role once Anthony Davis departed with a possible concussion, and he delivered a useful line for fantasy owners despite the poor field goal percentage. Anderson would be in line for an increased workload for as long as Davis is sidelined, although the latter will now have two days to pass through the concussion protocol before Thursday's game against the Kings.

    Pelicans' Ryan Anderson: Scores team-high 23 in Saturday's win

    Anderson scored 23 points (8-20 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding six rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes off the bench during Saturday's win over the Bucks. The six made threes tied his season high, and Anderson has now scored in double digits in 11 of his last 12 games, providing the Pelicans with valuable secondary scoring. The team has also won five of their last six, and if they stay hot and begin to make a push for a playoff spot, the front office might decide to hang onto Anderson rather than dealing the pending free agent at the trade deadline.

    Pelicans' Ryan Anderson: Pours in season-high 32 in Friday's win

    Anderson scored 32 points (12-19 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding eight rebounds in just 29 minutes off the bench during Friday's win over the Hornets. Charlotte simply had no answer on defense for Anderson, whose 32 points were a season high. He's been on a tear since the final day of 2015, scoring in double digits in eight straight games and averaging 18.1 points, 5.9 boards and 2.5 threes over that stretch. The 13-26 Pelicans are still well out of a playoff spot, however, and with Anderson headed for free agency in the offseason, expect him to be moved by the trade deadline.

    Pelicans' Ryan Anderson: Scores 18 points in return to bench

    Anderson provided 18 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two steals, and one rebound across 20 minutes in Wednesday's 109-97 win over the Kings. With Anthony Davis (back) returning from a two-game absence, Anderson headed back to a bench role saw his playing time nearly cut in half from the 42.5 minutes he'd averaged in the previous pair of contests. Despite the stark drop in minutes, he still produced more points than he had in either of those two contests. While the overall ceiling for his statistics won't be as high now that he's coming off the bench again, Anderson should still see enough minutes and put up enough shots to remain a useful commodity in most formats.

    Pelicans' Ryan Anderson: Plays team-high 42 minutes Tuesday

    Anderson recorded 15 points (7-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, and one block in 42 minutes during the Pelicans' 95-91 loss versus the Lakers on Tuesday. Anderson has now played a team-high in minutes in each of the past two games with Anthony Davis (back) sidelined. For whatever reason, coach Alvin Gentry prefers not to start Anderson and Davis alongside each other, but they still share a fair amount of time on the court together. The Pelicans are back in action on Wednesday against the Kings, and if Davis is forced to miss another contest, Anderson is the obvious bet to earn another start in his place. During the last five games, he is averaging 15.6 points (33.8 FG, 27.3 3Pt, 86.4 FT) on 14.8 shots to go with 6.8 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and 0.6 blocks in 36 minutes per appearance.

    Pelicans' Ryan Anderson: Double-double in Sunday's start

    Anderson scored 16 points (5-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding 10 rebounds in 43 minutes during Sunday's overtime loss to the Clippers. Getting the start in place of Anthony Davis (back) once again, Anderson picked up his fourth double-double of the season. At this point, Davis' status for Tuesday's game against the Lakers is still up in the air, so Anderson could be a strong DFS play if he remains in the starting five.

    Pelicans' Ryan Anderson: In the starting lineup Sunday

    Anderson is expected to draw the start for Sunday's game against the Clippers, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports reports. With Anthony Davis sitting out because of a back injury, Ryan Anderson will move into the starting lineup for his fourth start of the season. Anderson is averaging 31 minutes per game this season and could see that increase with Davis on the sideline. As soon as Davis is healthy, Anderson will return to his normal bench role, which could be as soon as Tuesday's tilt with the Lakers.

    Pelicans' Ryan Anderson: Scores 21 off the bench Friday

    Anderson scored 21 points (7-17 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding six rebounds, three steals, two assists and two blocks in 37 minutes off the bench during Friday's loss to the Pacers. He got some extra run after Anthony Davis left the game early in the first quarter with a sore back, and Anderson responded with his best performance from beyond the arc since late November. Davis' status for Sunday's road game against the Clippers is still unknown, and if he's unable to play expect Anderson to slide into the starting lineup.
