The sixth-year pro was in his element Saturday, setting up his teammates for numerous scoring opportunities while posting double-digit assists for the fifth time in the last six games. Rubio managed double-digit scoring for the fourth time during that stretch as well, and he's now averaging a season-high 12.1 points and 10.5 dimes in February.
Gordon found his rhythm from the field during his second game as the
Dieng submitted 16 points (7-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists, four steals and one block over 36 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 loss to the Rockets.
The fourth-year big man was a distant third behind the prolific Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins on the night, but turned in his best scoring total since Jan. 24. He also hauled in double-digit boards for the third time in the last five games, and has now posted 13 rebounds on three occasions during February. Dieng's offensive contributions continue to fluctuate, but he remains a reliable source of rebounds and steals in all formats.
Wiggins collected 30 points (11-22 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), two rebounds, two assists and three steals over 37 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 loss to the Rockets.
Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns combined for 46 shot attempts in what was a wild shootout, and the former hit the 30-point mark for the fourth time in the last seven games. He also continued his torrid pace from the field, one that's seen him shoot at least 50 percent in seven straight contests. Wiggins' usage rate has now climbed to 33.5 percent with Zach LaVine (knee) off the court this season, and he remains one of the most appealing fantasy options in any format given his production and robust role in the Minnesota offense.
Ross exploded for 24 points (10-15 FG, 4-7 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block across 35 minutes during Saturday's 105-86 victory over the Hawks.
Ross hasn't been shy with the Magic, shooting a combined 32 field goal attempts during his first two outings with the team. His acquisition before the trade deadline provided the Magic with a much-needed player that can create off the dribble and find his own shot, a role that Ross is very comfortable filling. Though it's a small sample size, Ross is demonstrating very quickly that he's been given the green light with the Magic and is therefore worth a serious look in many fantasy formats, including DFS if his price continues to reflect that of a bench player.
