Recent Player Analysis

Nov. 10 - Karl-Anthony Towns (MIN)

The Timberwolves’ trade of All-star Jimmy Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers can only lead to good things for Towns, who clearly was not a fan of Butler or his attitude. You can expect an immediate uptick in value from the young Towns from a fantasy perspective, though we aren’t sure this is going to make him a better defensive player between the lines, something that Minnesota desperately needs to take a step forward as a contender.Karl-Anthony Towns profile page

Nov. 10 - Andrew Wiggins (MIN)

Wiggins has certainly taken a step back from a developmental standpoint the last couple seasons, but the trade of Jimmy Butler could rejuvenate him. Newly acquired Robert Covington is a much more traditional small forward, and will fit nicely next to Wiggins at shooting guard. Keep in mind that Wiggins is only 23 and still has time to take a leap forward as an impactful player. This trade at least gives him new circumstances and a fresh start to do so.

Nov. 10 - Taj Gibson (MIN)

Taj has been having an awesome season, but with the Timberwolves’ acquisition of Dario Saric and Robert Covington, Minnesota now has a boost of three point shooting talent it can place next to Rose, Wiggins, and Towns. This is a great trade for both teams considering the circumstances, but Taj might find himself losing some playing time and moving back into a bench role. He is a favorite of his coach, which could delay this inevitable move, but Taj simply can not stretch the floor enough to steal minutes from Saric. Taj Gibson profile page

Nov. 10 - Dario Saric (MIN)

Saric has been traded to the Timberwolves, where he provides a much needed talent: three point shooting. While current PF Taj Gibson is having an amazing year, it simply makes sense for Saric to take much of the playing time in today’s NBA, and next to players like a rejuvenated Derrick Rose, Andrew Wiggins, and KAT. Taj is an old favorite of coach Thibodeau, but he could easily slide into the role of first big off the bench. Buy low on Saric. Dario Saric profile page

Nov. 10 - Ben Simmons (PHI)

With the 76ers’ acquisition of Jimmy Butler, Ben Simmons will find himself in a somewhat new situation, as Butler is much more of a go-to scorer than he is. Simmons is certainly the third option on offense now, and we would not be surprised to see Simmons to move into even more of a distributor role with Butler by his side, but this shouldn’t negatively impact his overall fantasy value as the departure of Covington and Saric still leaves plenty of points on the table to be scored.Ben Simmons profile page
