Best and worst teams: 

Team AlexBurnsff was the highest-scoring team of the week with 285.10 points, while Baron’s Boys was the lowest scorer with 192.90 points.

Highest-scoring picks: 

Sleeper has a new scoring setting where you essentially just select one game a week for each of your starters that will count towards your matchup. This eliminates the advantage of having certain players play in more games than another player in a certain week. It also creates far more strategy having to look at all the necessary stats and numbers to know which game each week you want to count towards your starters.

  • Kevin Durant: 70.30 points vs. Phx (Durant dropped 39 points to go along with nine rebounds, seven assists, four steals and one block)
  • Joel Embiid: 68.30 points vs. Min (In his first game back, Embiid dropped 42 points to go along with 14 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in a thrilling 2OT loss for the 76ers against the Wolves)
  • Christian Wood: 61.70 points vs. Cha (Wood dropped 33 points to go along with 16 rebounds, three assists and two blocks)
  • Lonzo Ball: 60.10 points @Was (Ball scored 28 points to go along with 13 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block)
  • James Harden: 46.20 points @Cle (Harden scored 14 points to go along with six rebounds, 14 assists and three steals)
