Saric recorded 17 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and one steal across 24 minutes in Monday's 113-104 win over the Bucks.
After begin 2017 on a brutal four game stretch going just 12-for-38 from the field for an average of 31.6 percent, Saric has rebounded nicely in his last three games shooting 13-for-28 for an average of 46.4 percent. Over half of his shots have come from three point range in that span and he's connected on 50 percent of them. Still the rookie from isn't reliable enough to be counted on in anything but deeper fantasy leagues.
Saric supplied 15 points (5-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT) six rebounds, two assists, and one steal across 21 minutes during Friday's 102-93 victory over the Hornets.
The Croatian rookie found his stroke from beyond the arc Friday, hitting four of his six attempts from that distance, well above his season average of 34.1 percent. The key to Saric's success in the scoring department seems heavily dependent on his ability to hit the three, since he's only registered double-digit points once this season without hitting a shot from that distance, and he's never scored more than 16 points in game without hitting at least three triples. His inconsistency in both minutes and production seem to make him a fantasy option only in deeper leagues, and for DFS players looking to take a risk.
Saric produced 18 points (5-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds and one steal across 30 minutes in a 105-95 win over the Nets on Sunday.
Saric had failed to connect on any of his 10 three-point attempts over the past three games, but he was able to find his stroke from distance Sunday, guiding him to his best scoring effort since Dec. 3. The 22-year-old's production has been trending up of late after a rough spell in mid-December, but since his playing time typically falls in the 20-to-25-minute range, he doesn't possess a particularly high ceiling whenever he takes the floor. His value is still largely limited to deeper leagues.
Saric finished with 13 points (4-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 11 rebounds and five assists across 28 minutes in a 124-122 win over the Nuggets on Friday.
A little extra playing time has been available for Saric the last handful of games with key rotation players sitting out with injuries or for rest purposes, and the rookie has been making the most of it. Though he's shooting only a middling 41.9 percent from the floor in the last four games, he's averaging 11.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.3 three-pointers per contest. That will give Saric some short-term value in deeper leagues, but just be aware that his playing time and production may start to slip when the likes of Gerald Henderson (hip) and Jahlil Okafor (hamstring) return.
Saric posted 14 points (6-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block across 25 minutes in a 100-83 loss to the Jazz on Thursday.
Saric now has back-to-back double-digit scoring outings on his ledger, after having failed to hit 10 points in his preceding six contests. He's seen his playing time tick up of late since moving over to small forward, but because he's not a major contributor in the defensive categories, Saric's fantasy appeal remains mostly limited to deeper leagues.
