Saric made significant offensive contributions for a third straight game, with his scoring total Sunday serving as a team high. The 23-year-old big man once again demonstrated outstanding range, shooting 80.0 percent on his five attempts from behind the arc and improving his success rate from that distance in the last three games to 66.6 percent (12-for-18). Coupled with his above-average work in both rebounds and assists, Saric's recent offensive surge has his fantasy stock trending skyward in all formats, irrespective of whether or not he's sharing the floor with Joel Embiid.

The 2017 Rookie of the Year runner-up is putting up big stat lines in the shadow of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. His uptick in minutes is a primary factor in his success, as he's seen an average of 34.8 minutes on the floor in his past ten games, a sharp increase from the 24.6 minutes he was averaging over the first two weeks of the season. Although he's universally owned in most formats, he should also be considered as a GPP option in DFS play.
