Fantasy Basketball - Dynasty Rundown for Week 5


Welcome to RotoBaller's weekly dynasty league rundown! Dynasty leagues are becoming more and more popular, and we're here to keep you ahead of the game.

Each week, we'll touch on topics and players that may not necessarily be relevant in single-year formats, but they can make a splash in keeper leagues.

With that being said, let's look at the dynasty rundown for Week 5.

Guards

Ky Bowman, Golden State Warriors

Bowman took a step back Tuesday night after he dropped 19 points Sunday. The important thing is that he played 28 and 25 minutes in the last two games. He looks to be ahead of fellow rookie guard Jordan Poole, who is shooting a horrendous 26 percent from the floor this season. The "Dubs" have a ton of injuries, and Bowman will have plenty of playing time allotted to him. He's a back-end keeper option that should be owned in most leagues to see if he can develop.

Donte Divincenzo, Milwaukee Bucks

The second-year pro is starting to make a name for himself with 14.5 points, four boards, 2.5 assists and 2.5 steals per game the last two games. He has an opening with forward Khris Middleton (quadriceps) out a month. The Bucks lost a lot in the offseason with Malcolm Brogdon going to the Indiana Pacers, and their depth will be tested. DiVincenzo looks like he'll be a big cog in that test. He has improved his three-point shooting from 26.5 percent to 45.2 percent. That's probably not sustainable, but he is starting to emerge as a valuable sixth man that could be worth having at the back end of your dynasty lineup.

 

Forwards

Brandon Ingram, New Orleans Pelicans

Ingram is in the midst of a career year, and the knee injury that forced him to miss four straight games did not slow him down upon his return Tuesday night. He had 21 points, seven boards and five assists. The 22-year-old is averaging 25.9 points, 7.3 boards and 3.9 assists per night as he's finally blossoming in his fourth year. If you have Ingram, you have a potential secondary building block. If you're looking to acquire him, it might be getting a little too close to midnight.

Moritz Wagner, Washington Wizards

The 22-year-old big man from Michigan had the game of a lifetime Friday night with a career-high 30 points and 15 boards in 25 minutes. He followed it up Sunday with a meager 12 points, three boards and three dimes. However, he has scored in double figures in eight of 11 games. He just needs more minutes for the 5.7 boards per game to come up. Regardless, he has shown he can be a factor, and he's on a team that can allow him to play.

 

Centers

Daniel Gafford, Chicago Bulls

The second-rounder out of Arkansas came out of nowhere Monday night with 21 points in 20 minutes off the bench. Center Luke Kornet (face) underwent sinus surgery and is out an undetermined period, but Gafford made a statement. He also had five boards and two blocks, which gives him multi-category luster in the short term with an undetermined road for the long term.

Jaxson Hayes, New Orleans Pelicans

The 6-foot-11 lottery pick has started to see some run of late with 9.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and three blocks per game over the last two tilts. With forward Derrick Favors (back) and center Jahlil Okafor (ankle) out, Hayes will have plenty of room to roam the paint. Hayes is very raw, but he has some long-term value. Scoop him if you need some frontline prospects.
