Brewer contributed 13 points (5-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four steals, three assists, one block, and one rebound across 27 minutes in Sunday's 115-104 win over the Mavericks.

Brewer was making his second straight start while Dwight Howard (ankle) remained sidelined, and was much more active in this contest after he was held to four points on 1-for-6 shooting from the field Friday against the Bucks. So long as the Rockets are comfortable with going with smaller lineups during Howard's absence, Brewer should be a primary beneficiary, and may be worth a speculative short-term pickup in deeper leagues. However, once Howard returns, Brewer's fantasy value will likely dwindle.
