  • Randle posted 24 points (11-18 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and five assists across 32 minutes in Sunday's 127-109 win over the Nuggets. Randle parlayed a season-high minutes total into his best scoring output of the season, as he put together a lights-out performance from the field for the second straight contest. The 2014 first-round pick has shot 60.7 percent (17-for-28) from the floor over the last pair of games and has been excellent on the glass all month, averaging 7.7 rebounds in 10 November contests. Given his secure role in the frontcourt rotation and multi-category production, Randle's fantasy stock appears to be on the rise.

  • Randle finished with 16 points (5-9 FG, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 21 minutes during Wednesday's 107-96 loss to the Celtics. Though Randle continues to see limited action, he's been very productive on a per-minute basis. In fact, per 36 minutes, he was posting 21.3 points, 11.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game coming into Wednesday's contest. Despite Larry Nance (thumb) being sidelined, Randle's workload has remained relatively unchanged while Kyle Kuzma is the one gaining more run.

  • Randle produced 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block across 16 minutes in Friday's 124-112 win over the Nets. Randle ceded the start to rookie Kyle Kuzma in Larry Nance's first missed contest since undergoing thumb surgery. Despite his abbreviated playing time, he generated his typically strong production and posted his fifth double-digit scoring effort in the last seven games. Randle has also hauled in at least five rebounds in six consecutive contests and is shooting a career-best 62.5 percent thus far this season. It appears Kuzma will hold on to the starting power forward job for the time being, but Randle remains a viable fantasy asset in deeper formats and as a modestly-priced DFS play.

  • Randle managed 17 points (7-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal across 17 minutes in Tuesday's 113-93 win over the Pistons. Randle was hyper-efficient in the surprisingly easy victory, and his scoring total served as a team high on the night. The third-year forward has hit double digits in the scoring column in four of his last five and has between seven and nine rebounds in three of his last four contests. Despite head coach Luke Walton apparent set on keeping Randle in a bench role for now, the 22-year-old has proven capable of offering solid returns in scoring and rebounding with modest minute totals, keeping him viable in all formats.

  • Randle scored 18 points (6-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-8 FT) while adding five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 24 minutes off the bench during Friday's 101-92 loss to the Raptors. He led the Lakers in scoring on the night and once again saw more minutes and delivered better numbers than starting power forward Larry Nance Jr. The team needs someone to help provide a spark on the second unit, so Randle will likely continue coming off the bench for now, but the fourth-year player will struggle to provide consistent production without more consistent court time.
