Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Scores 24 in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiggins scored 24 points (11-18 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding three blocks, two rebounds, two steals and an assist in 42 minutes during Sunday's 100-97 loss to the Pistons.

For only the second time this season, both Wiggins and Jimmy Butler scored 20 or more points on the same night, but both those games have come in the last five for Minnesota -- a sign that the duo may be figuring out how to play together effectively. If they do start to click, Wiggins' production could bounce back to last year's level in a hurry.

Bulls' Jerian Grant: Struggles in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant registered two points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 21 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 loss to the Suns.

Grant continues to hold onto the starting point guard spot, at least for now. However, sophomore backup Kris Dunn is consistently outplaying Grant this month, especially over the last five tilts. It might not be long before Dunn steals the starting job, but regardless he already appears to have leapfrogged Grant in terms of relevance in most fantasy leagues.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Scores team-high 26 in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler scored 26 points (10-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, five steals and four assists in 42 minutes during Sunday's 100-97 loss to the Pistons.

He had a chance to tie the game at the buzzer, but his three-point attempt couldn't find the mark. The double-double was Butler's second of the season and second in four games, and he seems to have found his groove on offense as well, scoring 20 or more points in four of his last five contests. The 28-year-old's production is starting to match his typical output as a Bull, and the window for attempting to pick him up at a discount due to his slow start may already be closing.

Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Bullied by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prescott completed 18 of 31 passes for 145 yards and three interceptions during Sunday's 37-9 loss to the Eagles. He also carried twice for 10 yards while losing one fumble.

It was an ugly day for the Cowboys and Prescott was square in the center of the team's offensive struggles. His three interceptions mark the most he's thrown in a single game throughout Prescott's young career but aren't the only turnovers he committed Sunday, as Prescott also had a fumble that was ultimately returned for a touchdown. Perhaps the offense is struggling to find an identity in life without Ezekiel Elliott (suspension) but, with Elliott or not, Prescott still needs to avoid costly turnovers for Dallas to contend with the league's best. The Mississippi State product will look to get back on track Thursday against a Chargers secondary allowing just 6.6 yards per pass attempt, the seventh-lowest figure in the league.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Finds end zone versus Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson carried 13 times for 37 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Bengals. He also caught two of three targets for 19 yards.

Anderson scored on a three-yard touchdown plunge in the first quarter, but he couldn't get much going after that and finished with a sub-par 2.8 yards per carry. He watched as Devontae Booker piled up 98 scrimmage yards on 19 touches of his own, leading the team in both categories. With the team on a six-game losing streak since the bye and Brock Osweiler struggling under center, both Anderson and Booker could see similar workloads moving forward, though it's difficult to predict who will have the greater impact next week against the Raiders.
