Guards

Bruce Brown Jr., Detroit Pistons

The 23-year-old former second-round pick has binged the last couple of games after a slew of injuries hit the Pistons' backcourt. Brown has averaged 18 points, seven assists, 4.5 rebounds and two steals in the last two games. He has done this without much help from the three-point shot as he was just 1-for-7 (14.2 percent) from distance. Brown has a chance to earn a larger role even when guards Derrick Rose (hamstring) and Reggie Jackson (back) return. Jackson is out at least a month, and Brown needs to be owned in dynasty formats.

Furkan Korkmaz, Philadelphia 76ers

The 6-foot-7 guard has come of age the last three games with 16 points, 2.7 rebounds and two assists per game the last three games. He has shot 47.6 percent from deep during the stretch, and 10 of his 15 makes have been of the three-point variety. That rate probably can't continue, but the impending return of center Joel Embiid should keep things open on the perimeter. Korkmaz is just 22, and this is the most noise he has made as a pro. He's worth taking a flyer on to see what more can develop.

Jordan Poole, Golden State Warriors

The loss of point guard Stephen Curry (hand) for three months was a crushing blow to the "Dubs", and this season is likely going to be defined as one that gave the team an extended look at younger players. Poole, the team's first-round pick in 2019, has delivered mixed results. He has scored in double figures in three of the last five games, but consistency has been an issue. He's shooting just 26.9 percent from the floor and 32.5 percent from three. Those numbers have to improve, and if he's still hovering on waivers, scoop him up. He should have a long leash with Curry out.

 

Forwards

Troy Brown Jr., Washington Wizards

After missing all of training camp and the start of the regular season with a calf injury, Brown has shown flashes in multiple categories. Brown has the potential to be a stat-sheet stuffer, but he doesn't have a polished enough offensive game to rely on. He's averaging 10.7 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals per game while shooting 57.1 percent from the floor and 33.3 percent from distance. The 15th pick in last year's draft could emerge into an important cog in an offense that desperately needs support from someone other than shooting guard Bradley Beal. Brown's versatility gives him keeper clout right now, but his shot will ultimately be what has to develop to take him to the next level.

Jabari Parker, Atlanta Hawks

The former No. 2 overall pick in 2014 has turned back the clock this season as Parker has played incredibly well off the bench. Still just 24 years old, but with a checkered injury history, Parker is averaging 13.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. Parker is expected to receive an even larger role with center John Collins suspended 25 games. Parker needs to be owned in all formats, and he might be scratching the surface on being a player to build around again.

Eric Paschall, Golden State Warriors

Paschall went off so hard Monday night that the second-round pick may not be on many waivers now. He had 34 points and 13 rebounds filling in for another second-round gem in forward Draymond Green (finger). Paschall has scored 20 or more points in three of four games, but the 13 boards the other night tripled his career high. It's too early to tell if the Warriors have found Green's potential replacement, but he is certainly worth owning in all formats.

 

Centers

Goga Bitadze, Indiana Pacers

Injuries have opened up a bigger role for Bitadze as center Myles Turner (ankle) and forward Domantas Sabonis (calf) are on the mend. Bitadze posted 10 points, 10 boards and four blocks Friday night and nine points, four boards, three assists and four blocks Sunday. The 20-year-old is even firing from three-point land, as he went 2-for-4 from distance. His short-term value is really high right now, but the intermediate value may be minimal. At the very least, he has entered the discussion as a long-term contender at center.
