Daniel Gafford totaled 18 points (7-10 FG, 4-7 FT), eleven rebounds, three assists, and three blocks in the Wizards’130-125 loss to the Magic.

Fantasy Impact:

Gafford double-doubled in the Wizards’ loss to the Magic, making this his third of the season. Gafford is being afforded a career-high 25.1 minutes of playing time per game, allowing him to build and sustain his production level from night in and night out, something he hasn’t been able to do effectively in years past. The increase in playing time and usage is deserved, as Gafford has successfully demonstrated his utility and value as a multi-categorical contributor early this season. Gafford warrants must-roster consideration and could flirt with must-start status in season-long leagues should he find a way to continue bolstering his value. His floor, upside, and price point are appealing enough to make him a viable asset in daily formats. Gafford has a usage rate of 13.4 percent, a plus-minus of -4.5, and averages 25.1 minutes, 9.8 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.6 steals, and 2.1 blocks per game while shooting 70.3 percent from the floor and 64.1 percent from the free-throw line.
