  • Capela contributed 28 points (13-14 FG, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, and five blocks in 24 minutes during Monday's 130-123 win over the Pelicans. Capela finished with a career high in scoring and matched his career best in blocks while playing only half the game. Moreover, he locked DeMarcus Cousins down in the pivotal fourth quarter, holding him to just one point in the final eight minutes of action.

  • Capela finished with 22 points (10-15 FG, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, two steals and one assist in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 118-97 victory over Indiana. Capela recorded another double-double Wednesday, while taking a season-high 15 shot attempts. He has been outstanding over the first 6 weeks of the season, eclipsing the expectations of many owners. The major concern heading into the season, was whether he was going to receive enough minutes to put up consistent production. This has been quickly alleviated however, with Capela currently averaging almost 26 minutes per night. He appears to be locked in as one of the steals of the draft.

  • Capela totaled 12 points (4-7 FG, 4-6 FT), 15 rebounds, three assists and three blocks in a 117-102 win over the New York Knicks on Saturday. Capela has double-doubles in five of his last six games, as he's becoming one of the most reliable centers in fantasy. What makes him so good is the fact that he has two elite passers, as Chris Paul and James Harden continue to provide him easy buckets. That's especially evident when looking at his field goal percentage, as Caplea ranks top-three in the league with a 67.6 field goal percentage. He is also posting a 61.2 free-throw percentage, which is a career-high by leaps and bounds.

  • Capela totaled 17 points (7-11 FG), 13 rebounds and three blocks in a 104-82 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. This marks Capela's 11th double-double of the season, as he continues to provide fantasy owners with what they wanted when they drafted him. What's quietly been a nice surprise is his free-throw shooting, as Capela is setting a career-high with a 64 percent free-throw percentage. He's also providing nearly two blocks a game, as his value should only rise with Chris Paul back in the lineup.

  • Capela scored 12 points (6-11 FG, 0-3 FT), to go along with 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 21 minutes Thursday in Houston's win over Phoenix. Capela has made the leap from being a mobile big man with a lot of potential to being a bonafide difference maker for the perimeter-heavy Rockets. He is the ideal big man for coach Mike D'Antoni's system that is predicated on speed and spacing. The paint is left without much clutter for Capela to deal with, a result of Houston's extensive collection of shooters. Capela leads the league in field-goal percentage at 68.4 for all players that have attempted at least 60 shots. He checks in behind only Detroit's Andre Drummond (221) and New Orleans' DeMarcus Cousins (205) in total rebounds with 182. He has the opportunity to develop alongside James Harden, and his fantasy ceiling will continue to rise.
