Aaron Gordon totaled 18 points (8-14 FG, 0-3 3 PT, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and three steals in the Nuggets’ 122-105 loss to the Suns on Monday.
Gordon played well in the Nuggets' loss to the Suns, scoring 18.0 points to go along with an impressive 3.0 steals. Since the tail end of the Trailblazers Series, he has been on an upswing and has become a viable fantasy option in the process. Some players simply play well against certain teams, and this could be Gordon's team which could lead to some impressive results for a player of his athletic caliber. There is still a lot of series to play and a lot of rhythm checking, but it is still worth keeping him on your radar especially given the value-light nature of these slates.
Aaron Gordon totaled 13 points (4-9 FG, 2-2 3PT, 3-6 FT), six rebounds, and two assists in the Nuggets' 128-109 win over the Trailblazers on Monday.
Gordon continued to contribute good minutes in the Nuggets’ win over the Trailblazers, posting another double-digit scoring performance with five or more rebounds. He is still finding his identity in the crowded front-court of the team; however, he is slowly finding his rhythm and putting up the kind of performances that are impactful to the team's overall success. Although this doesn’t mean fantasy-friendly lines night-in and night-out, Gordon finding this rhythm can make way for him to further play to his strengths while leveraging his overall athleticism to put a stamp on each game he plays in. Gordon is worth considering for your lineups and could become an excellent overall fantasy asset in the first round of the playoffs.

Gordon put up 16.0 points in the Nuggets' loss to the Trailblazers, coming in as the team's third-leading scorer on the night. Although he has been underwhelming since joining the Nuggets, his athleticism makes him an asset in the rotation. The team needs additional production on offense, and if Gordon can build on this performance, he could build on his fantasy profile as a reasonable option for salary relief. The apprehension of investing in him is understandable given his inconsistency, but on a slate where most of the value could rest with the elite having him as an option at his price point with his potential upside based on his athletic pedigree could pay off in a big way.
