Ben Simmons plays uninspiring basketball in win over the Rockets

Ben Simmons totaled ten points (5-8 FG), three rebounds, and three assists in 24 minutes in the Sixers' 135-115 win over the Rockets on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Simmons played uninspiring basketball in the Sixers' win over the Rockets by putting up his worse fantasy performance of the season. He has been in unpredictable form recently, which can be a huge threat to the success of the Sixers and your fantasy team. Simmons has not been able to recapture or reproduce the momentum and value that comprised his state of play in February but has instead managed to regress substantially in his form. The silver lining is that Simmons is a talented player who at any time can change the "tides" of a game as well as your fantasy lineup. Despite his poor form, he remains a must-consider play, especially if there is a generous discount in price given his underwhelming efforts.

Ben Simmons scores 15 points in win over the Bulls

Ben Simmons totaled 15 points (6-7 FG, 3-5 FT), six rebounds, five assists, and three steals in 33 minutes in the Sixers' 106-94 win over the Bulls on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Simmons scored 15.0 points in the Sixers' win over the Bulls, contributing to a stat-line that showcased his productivity across several performance categories. His overall production was acceptable in this contest, as he demonstrated his versatility and playmaking ability in each phase of the game. However, Simmons' price tag may be a tad too rich given his inconsistent play and propensity to play to his high-floor as of late. He is undoubtedly a viable fantasy option for your DFS lineups; however, it would probably be best to search for better value before landing on Simmons for your roster.

Ben Simmons scores five points in win over the Spurs

Ben Simmons totaled 35 points (2-6 FG, 1-5 FT), six rebounds, five assists, and two steals in 35 minutes in the Sixers' 113-111 win over the Spurs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Simmons scored 5.0 points in the Sixers’ win over the Spurs, making it his worst scoring performance since January 12th against the Heat, in which he also scored five points. Ever since his dominant play in February, he has regressed in his production, making him a less than ideal fantasy target. Simmons' versatility has been his saving grace, as his ability to contribute to several performance categories has prevented his value from plummeting. He has slate-breaking upside and can be added to your DFS lineups at a significant discount. Given his role and potential, he remains a must-consider fantasy play.

Ben Simmons “stuffed” the stat-sheet in win over the Hawks

Ben Simmons totaled 18 points (8-10 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists, one block, and one steal in 27 minutes in the Sixers' 126-104 win over the Hawks on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Simmons “stuffed” in the stat-sheet the Sixers' win over the Hawks, contributing to his best all-around performance since returning to the court. He has a great ability to put up fantasy-friendly lines even when his stat-sheet doesn’t look like it. Simmons’ ability to contribute to several areas of the stat-sheet makes him a great asset to have on your roster when looking for premium production in some of the heavier weighted performance categories. Feel free to leverage him as a well-positioned fantasy asset for your DFS lineup.

Ben Simmons “stuffs” the stat-sheet in win over the Thunder

Ben Simmons totaled 12 points (6-8 FG), three rebounds, four assists, two blocks, and three steals in 23 minutes in the Sixers' 121-90 win over the Thunder on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Simmons “stuffed” the stat-sheet in the Sixers’ win over the Thunder, making a satisfactory return to the court after missing the team's previous four games. He produced a fantasy line that was right on par with where he was producing before his absence. Although his scoring has been questionable as of late, Simmons' ability to create value across each performance category gives him much upside. He has a reasonable price-point given his talent, but maybe a little more match-up dependent than one would like; be sure to evaluate the slate to play him in the best spot to maximize his value.
