Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Strong two-way performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl recorded 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, four blocks and two assists across 35 minutes in Sunday's win over the Mavericks.

Poeltl has scored in double digits in eight of the Spurs' last 10 games, and he also has recorded five double-doubles during that stretch. Poeltl usually embraces a lesser role on offense when he's sharing the court with Dejounte Murray and DeMar DeRozan, but he was extremely effective in this contest. The four blocks also tied a season-high mark for the former Utah standout.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Strong production continues despite loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl tallied 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 10 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes during Friday's 121-119 loss to Denver.

Poeltl had a nice bounceback game after two of his poorer performances, finishing with his 11th double-double of the season. The departure of LaMarcus Aldridge has opened up a mammoth amount of playing time for Poeltl, and he finally has the chance to show what he can do as a starting NBA center. The addition of Gorgui Dieng (shoulder) may cut into his playing time slightly, but, at this point, there is no reason he won't continue to be a must-roster asset the rest of the way.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Logs fourth-straight double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl recorded 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-3 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists, three blocked shots and two steals across 40 minutes in Saturday's 139-133 loss to that Pacers.

Poeltl gets more comfortable with his starting role with every passing game, and his surprisingly efficient lines are a saving grace for the Spurs, who desperately needed a larger presence in the frontcourt. In a matter of weeks, his fantasy stock has skyrocketed. A significant contributor of rebounds, Poeltl is a guy who might still be found on the waiver wire in shallow leagues.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Records double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl registered 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 44 minutes in Thursday's 134-129 loss to the Hawks.

Poeltl fared surprisingly well against Clint Capela in the narrow double-overtime loss, and Thursday's stat line delivered the center's fifth-straight double-digit scoring total. While there's some variance in his production, his 7-foot-1 frame creates a size mismatch for several teams. The Spurs are doing much better than expected in the frontcourt since parting with LaMarcus Aldridge, and it's due to Poeltl's presence.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Another double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl registered 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-6 FT), 14 rebounds, one assists, one steal and one block during Wednesday's win over the Kings.

The 25-year-old has now scored double-digit points in four straight games, a span in which he's averaged 12.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks while shooting 68.4 percent from the field. The fifth-year center has been on a roll lately, and he should continue providing high-end production in rebounds, blocks and field-goal percentage the rest of the way, though his scoring may be sporadic due to his inconsistent shooting volume.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Big double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl had 17 points (8-11 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 32 minutes during Monday's 132-115 loss to the Kings.

Poeltl had himself another strong outing despite the loss, affirming himself as a clear must-roster player across all fantasy formats. The Spurs recently signed Gorgui Dieng, and while he is likely to come off the bench behind Poeltl, he could cut into his playing time somewhat. There is no real reason to panic, but this is certainly a situation to monitor going forward.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Posts 20/9 with three blocks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl tallied 20 points (8-9 FG, 4-10 FT) nine rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 31 minutes during Saturday's 120-104 win over the Bulls.

The 25-year-old attempted a season-high 10 free throws as the Bulls were playing "Hack-a-Shaq" on the fifth-year center towards the end of the game. Before Saturday's game, Poeltl was averaging only 1.5 free-throw attempts per game this season. Poor free-throw shooting aside, he delivered another strong defensive effort with three blocks along with making eight of his nine attempts from the field. Poeltl is locked in as the starting center and should continue to provide elite field-goal percentage and blocks along with decent points and rebounds the rest of the way.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Comes close to double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl notched 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and three blocks across 31 minutes in Thursday's loss against the Clippers.

Poeltl continues to play big minutes in the frontcourt with LaMarcus Aldridge set to be bought out, and he's now started 21 games in a row for San Antonio. He has five double-doubles in that stretch and, while he's probably never going to be a go-to player on offense, he can provide value on the glass and defensively while also shooting the ball at an effective clip from the field.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Swats four shots in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl contributed just four points (2-4 FG), 11 rebounds, four blocks and one assist in 26 minutes during Monday's 100-97 loss to the Hornets.

Poelt scored in single-digits for the third straight game but salvaged what could have been a disappointing night by matching his season-high with four blocks. With LaMarcus Aldridge on his way out of town, Poeltl has quickly become a must-roster player, although his limited fantasy strengths make him less appealing in certain team builds.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Sniffs double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl registered eight points (4-8 FG), 12 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 25 minutes during Friday's 116-110 win against the Cavaliers.

The 25-year-old has been on fire over his last three games, averaging 14.0 points, 13.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocks while shooting 69.0 percent from the field. Poeltl is one of the last big men standing in San Antonio after the Spurs agreed to part ways with LaMarcus Aldridge. He's locked into the starting lineup and should continue to play anywhere between 25-35 minutes per game while proving fantasy owners with elite blocks and field-goal percentage along with decent points and rebounds.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Puts up 20 and 16 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl totaled 20 points (9-11 FG, 2-5 FT), 16 rebounds, and one assist across 34 minutes Wednesday in the Spurs' 106-99 victory over the Bulls.

Poeltl recorded his second consecutive double-double and really dominated the game, coming away with new season-high point and rebound totals. The center has taken advantage of his increased role of late, shooting an impressive 65.7 percent from the field in his first five games since the All-Star break. Poeltl isn't a huge part of the Spurs offense, but he converts his opportunities at a high rate, and he's typically an elite source of blocks and rebounds. He's worthy of rostering in every 12-team league.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Double-double in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl scored 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 FT) to go along with 12 rebounds, four blocks, two assists and one steal in a 109-99 victory over the Pistons on Monday.

Poeltl was able to pick up his fifth double-double of the season while also playing great defense and tying his season-high block total. The center had been struggling a bit of late despite seeing the majority of the team's minutes at center. Poeltl won't provide elite scoring, but he should contribute enough rebounds and blocked shots to be a reliable fantasy player for the rest of the season, barring any significant roster additions.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Quiet in loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl collected just six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 FT) and five rebounds in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 115-104 loss to the Mavericks.

Poeltl turned in a highly underwhelming performance in the loss but those with a vested interest will simply have to give him a pass here. It was earlier announced that LaMarcus Aldridge's time with the Spurs has come to an end, so for the time being, Poeltl has two hands on the starting center position. Despite Wednesday's dud, Poeltl is a must-roster player going forward, unless the Spurs acquire another starting-caliber big man before the deadline.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Double-doubles in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl collected 14 points (7-8 FG, 0-2 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes during Monday's 124-113 loss to Brooklyn.

Poeltl appears to have locked up the starting center spot if Monday's playing time is anything to go by. Even though LaMarcus Aldridge has returned to the lineup, it has been Poeltl who continues to be the man in the middle. He is unlikely to explode on the offensive end but the rebounds, blocks and efficiency from the floor are more than enough to give him sustainable 12-team value moving forward.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Game vs. Detroit postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl and the Spurs won't play Tuesday against the Pistons after the game was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

With COVID-19 contact tracing ongoing, Tuesday's game will be rescheduled for later in the season. For now, the Spurs' next game arrives Wednesday night in Cleveland, but depending on the results of the tracing, it's possible that game could also be in jeopardy. Poeltl is coming off a big performance in Sunday's win over the Hornets, with the center providing eight points (3-7 FG, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, four blocks, two assists and one steal in the contest.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Fills stat sheet against Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl registered 14 points (7-7 FG, 0-1 FT), 12 rebounds, three steals, three blocks and an assist across 28 minutes in Friday's win over the Hawks.

Poeltl didn't miss a single shot from the field and also left his mark defensively, pacing the Spurs in rebounds, steals and blocks. This was Poeltl's second double-double over his last three starts, and he has delivered a few decent performances since moving to the starting lineup as the replacement of LaMarcus Aldridge (hip). Poeltl is averaging 10.6 points and 9.4 rebounds per game over his last five appearances, all of them as a starter.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Disappoints in start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl recorded four points (2-4 FG), five rebounds and two blocks through 20 minutes in the 114-91 loss to Golden State on Tuesday.

Poeltl was given another shot with teammate LaMarcus Aldridge still out, and he failed to deliver. The center had a big night only a day prior against the same team but could not follow up that performance. Poeltl has been a great rotation player, but seems to be off and on when he receives the big role. He'll continue to be terrific in deeper formats once Aldridge returns.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Posts another double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl registered 14 points (7-9 FG), 11 rebounds and four blocks across 30 minutes in Monday's 105-100 win over the Warriors.

Poeltl has started three games in a row due to LaMarcus Aldridge's hip injury, but the European big man has made the most of his short-lived expanded role -- he has scored in double digits in two of those games while grabbing eight of more rebounds in each one of those contests. His upside moving forward will depend heavily on Aldridge's recovery, but Poeltl has proven to be a valuable asset when given enough minutes.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Ties season high in rebounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl provided two points (0-6 FG, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block across 29 minutes in Saturday's 111-106 win over the Rockets.

Poeltl shot unusually poorly from the field, but he at least pounded the glass and chipped in a block. In the short term, Poeltl should continue to be an asset in those areas while also typically providing excellent efficiency from the field on a low volume of attempts. If he impresses during his run as the starting center, Poeltl could poach more playing time from LaMarcus Aldridge (hip) once the latter is healthy again.

Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Productive as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poeltl posted 19 points (9-10 FG, 1-3 FT), eight rebounds, four blocks, an assist and a steal across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 111-108 win over the Timberwolves.

Poeltl got the start due to LaMarcus Aldridge's hip injury, and he responded to Gregg Popovich's trust with a season-best scoring output while also posting a season-high mark in blocks. As if that wasn't enough, Poeltl ended just one rebound away from putting up his second double-double of the campaign. Poeltl is expected to remain in the starting lineup with Aldridge set to face a multi-game absence, and that could translate into a slight bump in his fantasy value across most formats.
