23/24 Nov. 6 Box Score Analysis (12 Games)
Dereck Lively (Hold): The low minutes were due to foul trouble. Lively picked up two quick offensive fouls about halfway through the first quarter and we didn’t see much of him after that. The rookie is a hold in 12-team leagues. In 10-team leagues, I would try to hold as well, even though his current production is just streamer-level there. Lively has been more productive on offense than expected, and that has allowed him to post top-125 numbers in nine-category leagues up to this point despite his minutes often being limited by Kidd or foul trouble. Through the first seven games of his career, the center is averaging 9.0 PPG on 77.8 FG%, 7.7 RPG, and 1.0 SPG in 23.9 MPG. His numbers in the guard categories have been nonexistent this year, so he will gain multiple rounds of value when paired with a build that is punting a guard category or two.
