  • Caldwell-Pope scored 24 points (8-20 FG, 4-14 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go with four rebounds, three assists and three steals across 38 minutes in Tuesday's 113-109 overtime loss to New York. Despite leading the team with 24 points, Caldwell-Pope's shooting breakdown was less than efficient, especially from beyond the arc. The Los Angeles guard sank four three-pointers on a season-high 14 attempts from three-point land in a losing effort in overtime to New York. Caldwell-Pope is shooting a career-best 36.0 percent on a career-high 6.1 shots per game after his high-volume shooting performance on Tuesday. However, shooting nights like Tuesday's will not go a long way towards sustained success for the guard.

  • Caldwell-Pope recorded 21 points (7-18 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds and a steal across 42 minutes in Wednesday's 127-123 loss to the Warriors. The former Georgia standout arrived in Los Angeles with minimal fanfare but his impact has definitely been felt. After four seasons in Detriot, Caldwell-Pope has seen increased opportunity as the Lakers' starting shooting guard, and he's really been turning it on lately, as he scored a season-high 29 points against the Clippers on Monday. His performance tonight marks four straight games with 20 points or more, and while he only recorded one steal Wednesday, he leads the Lakers in steals and is ranked 15th in the league with 31 total steals. Caldwell-Pope is also an excellent rebounder and his balanced stat line makes him a valuable commodity. He should be considered a strong buy in all formats.

  • Caldwell-Pope scored 29 points (12-28 FG, 5-11 3Pt) while adding six rebounds, three steals and an assist in 37 minutes during Monday's 120-115 loss to the Clippers. The 29 points were a season high, and it was KCP's third straight game with 20 or more and seventh straight game with multiple three-pointers. His season averages still look very similar to his standard prior output as a Piston, but the 24-year-old is averaging a strong 17.9 points, 5.9 boards, 3.4 threes, 2.9 assists and 2.1 steals over that seven-game stretch, and there's no reason to think his usage in the Lakers' offense will decline any time soon.

  • Caldwell-Pope recorded 20 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, a rebound and a steal across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 113-102 loss to the Kings. Caldwell-Pope followed up a season-high 21 points against the Bulls with another great outing despite the disappointing loss. His minutes have remained consistent through the first 16 games, but his output can be a bit under-the-radar due to players like Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram taking up the spotlight in Los Angeles. While he is widely owned in seasonal leagues, he is an intriguing GPP option and can also be utilized as a cheap option in cash games, depending on the matchup.

  • Caldwell-Pope finished with 21 points (6-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 5-7 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and three steals across 39 minutes in Tuesday's 103-94 victory over the Bulls. Caldwell-Pope was good again on Tuesday, collecting a season-high 21 points on just 11 field-goal attempts. He is beginning to find his role on the team, scoring in double figures in five consecutive games, while also averaging 2.2 steals over that same period. He is locked into big minutes, and with his defensive upside, he is a player worth owning in most leagues.
