Dwayne Bacon scores 28 points in loss to Hornets on Friday

Dwayne Bacon scored 28 points (9-19 FG, 2-7 3PT, 8-10 FT) with four rebounds and two assists across 34 minutes during Friday's 122-112 loss to the Charlotte Hornets.

Fantasy Impact

Bacon led the Magic in scoring while dishing two assists and collecting four rebounds without committing a turnover to return excellent value in fantasy lineups on Friday. The fourth-year shooting guard out of Florida State is a good floor play with the potential to unlock the ceiling upside he displayed during Friday's loss. Bacon and the Magic will get their next opportunity against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.

Dwayne Bacon registers 20 points, collects four rebounds in blowout loss

Dwayne Bacon registered 20 points (10-18 FG, 0-1 3PT) with four rebounds, a block, and a turnover across 29 minutes during Wednesday's 132-96 blowout loss to the Boston Celtics.

Fantasy Impact

Bacon has been a steady contributor on offense for Orlando in recent games, shooting 10-of-18 from the field during Wednesday's blowout loss against Boston. The fourth-year shooting guard has a low ceiling but safe floor and can be added into lineups next when the Magic play the Charlotte Hornets on Friday.

Dwayne Bacon scores 23 points, forces three steals in win over Grizzlies

Dwayne Bacon scored 23 points (9-15 FG, 0-4 3PT, 5-5 FT) with two rebounds, two assists, and three steals across 36 minutes during Saturday's 112-111 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.

Fantasy Impact

The fourth-year shooting guard shot 60 FG% from the floor despite failing to convert any three-point attempts against the Grizzlies during Saturday's win. His production fluctuates dramatically from game to game, making Bacon a risky insert into lineups, reliant upon specific matchups. Orlando's next game against the Pistons on Monday could be one of these favorable matchups, so keep an eye on his availability and salary in DFS contests.

Dwayne Bacon finishes with team-high 20 points in loss to Pacers

Dwayne Bacon scored 20 points (6-15 FG, 1-3 3PT, 7-8 FT) with five rebounds, an assist, and two steals across 32 minutes during Sunday's 131-112 loss to the Indiana Pacers.

Fantasy Impact

Bacon preserved his scoring total by going seven-of-eight from the free-throw line, adding five boards and two steals on defense to elevate his total production against the Pacers. He is a low-ceiling option moving forward but provides decent value from time to time, making him a good depth piece heading into Monday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.
