Dwayne Bacon scored 14 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) with three rebounds, two assists, and a turnover across 29 minutes during Monday's 120-97 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.
Bacon managed to shoot 42 FG% and collected three rebounds during Monday's lopsided loss to the Spurs. The Magic are now on a six-game losing streak but fantasy managers can opt to stream Bacon for his floor against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday, as the fourth-year shooting guard is averaging 8.5 points and 3.8 assists across his last four starts.
Orlando Magic SG Dwayne Bacon scored 26 points (9-19 FG, 2-6 3PT, 6-6 FT) with eight rebounds, an assist, and a turnover across 33 minutes during Sunday's 96-93 loss against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Bacon shot an efficient 47 FG% while corralling eight rebounds in a closely-contested loss to the Lakers on Sunday night. The fourth-year guard out of Florida State should be rostered and started in most formats moving forward due to the increased opportunity provided following the trade of Evan Fournier to Boston at the trade deadline. With Bacon solidified as a starter for a Magic franchise that is clearly in full rebuild mode, he becomes a relevant starter in most formats through the rest of the 2020-21 season and remains available on 97 percent of ESPN waiver wires.
Orlando Magic SG Dwayne Bacon scored 17 points (7-19 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-4 FT) with three rebounds, six assists, a steal, and a turnover across 34 minutes during Friday's 112-105 loss against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Bacon managed to rack up 17 points despite shooting 36 FG% against the Trail Blazers on Friday. The third-year guard out of Florida State becomes a fantasy-relevant player to target in DFS lineups and season lineups alike, as Evan Fournier was traded away to the Boston Celtics for future draft picks prior to Thursday's trade deadline. Bacon is averaging 10.1 points and 2.8 rebounds across 25.1 minutes this season but should see increased run and production after the Magic traded away their top-three players. Bacon will have his next opportunity against the Los Angeles Lakers without LeBron (ankle), making him an intriguing play in most formats on Sunday.
Dwayne Bacon registered nine points (2-9 FG. 1-6 3PT, 4-4 FT) with six rebounds, two assists, and a turnover across 32 minutes during Sunday's 102-97 loss to the Miami Heat.
Bacon shot terribly from the floor, converting just 1-of-6 triples but securing six rebounds to slightly increase his total fantasy production against the Heat on Sunday. The Magic get most of their scoring production from Nikola Vucevic and Terrence Ross, so rostering Bacon should only be done as an added depth piece to your bench. The third-year forward is a capable player but his role on the offense is tailored more towards a paint presence, making him a player to avoid in season and DFS contests when the Magic travel to play the New York Knicks on Thursday.
Dwayne Bacon scored 15 points (5-16 FG, 3-8 3PT, 2-2 FT) with two rebounds, three assists, and a turnover across 33 minutes during a 104-77 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday.
Bacon remains a solid Utility streaming option in point formats, as the Magic continue to be short-handed due to injuries. Although not a consistent offensive threat, the third-year forward has totaled 36 points across his last two starts and can provide solid value off of waivers. The Magic are on a seven-game losing streak and their season appears lost after a hot 4-0 start. Bacon can be started as a Utility in deeper leagues on Sunday in a difficult matchup against the Miami Heat, as he scored 21 points across 32 minutes in their previous game on Thursday.
