Fantasy Impact: You would not have been able to notice that Giannis was a game-time decision leading up to Sunday's game against the Spurs given his performance.

Fantasy Impact: Antetokounmpo was once again doing what he does in this one and that's help fantasy owners get a solid amount of points with a little bit of everything else thrown in from him for good measure. Obviously, you should continue to start him in any fantasy leagues you own him in.

Giannis Antetokounmpo drops 40

Wed, Nov 8th 1:00pm EST
By Jeff Latka

After two consecutive games of shooting below 50 percent from the field, Antetokounmpo got back to his incredibly efficient ways as he secured his second 40-point game of the season and missed just five field goal attempts in the process. He also matched a season-high with four blocks. On the downside, however, Antetokounmpo fouled out late in the game and also coughed up a season-high eight turnovers.

Fantasy Impact: The Greek Freak was the only player in the NBA to average 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks in 2016, not bad for a player who has seen his scoring average increase by more than four points per game every season of his career. In fact, the production across the board has been on the rise since we first got to know Antetokounmpo in 2013, and there is little reason to think that stops in 2017-18. He shot just 32.1 percent from outside of eight feet last season, something that could be viewed as a flaw, or room for significant growth for a player who doesn't turn 23 until December.

Fantasy Impact: The Greek Freak is on a tear to start the season averaging a double-double to go along with an NBA leading 31 points per game. He's also posting 9.9 boards, five assists, plus over one steal and one block per game. He's making his case for the top fantasy player.

Fantasy Impact: Antetokounmpo put up his lowest-scoring performance of the season -- 32 points. He's been dominant so far, to say the least. In addition to averaging 36.8 points, he's notching 10.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.0 block per game while shooting no worse than 50 percent from the field in any contest. It's safe to say that Giannis should be fired up whenever he's on the floor, no matter the opponent.

Fantasy Impact: If you don't have Antetokounmpo on your season-long squad try to trade for him now. He is only going to gain more value as the season plays on. In daily fantasy lineups always build around him. He is going to consistently give you 35-plus total fantasy points.

Fantasy Impact: At times in the game, Giannis looked unstoppable and seems to have figured out that he will need to have a year like Lebron James did in 2006-2007. Each year since his rookie season he has improved his points per game by an average of 5.3 points per game. He should average 28.2 points per game if this trend continues. He is a weekly starter and a must-have in daily fantasy this week while his price is lower.

The Milwaukee Bucks and Antetokounmpo have agreed to a four-year extension. The forward is expected to sign the contract on Tuesday. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Affectionately known as the "Greek Freak", the 6'11" small forward had a career-year across all major categories and is only 21 years old. He's still an improving player which is a scary thought for opponents. With his unique combination of size and ball-handling ability, he should have no issues with continuing to put up strong rebounding and assist numbers. He'll also have multiple position eligibility which makes him one of the top SF options off the board this upcoming season.

Fantasy Impact: Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to grow through his second season in the NBA. After an inconsistent start to the year, the Greek Freak is settling into his role and contributing across the board. The last two weeks he has averaged 15.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.6 blocks. If you are in a keeper league, Antetokounmpo is a player you should be targeting.

Fantasy Impact: The Greek Freak (Antetokounmpo) is on fire! He topped his career high of 25 points on Wednesday with 27 on Friday night. He is shooting well from the field as well as limiting his turnovers. He is a must own right now. If for some reason he had been dropped, pick him up now.

Fantasy Impact: Giannis Antekokounmpo has stepped up his game the last few weeks. He is contributing in multiple categories and in the last 14 days has averaged 11.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists and a steal and a block a game. He should continue to get playing time with the Bucks injury situation and can hopefully become more consistent.

Fantasy Impact: Giannis Antetokounmpo got the start at power forward due to an injury to Ersan Ilyasova. He finished with a strong stat line contributing to all categories and no turnovers which has been a problem. If Ilyasova remains out look for Antetokounmpo to continue to opportunities at power forward and play enough minutes to be owned in all leagues.

 

After making his NBA All-Star Weekend debut last season in the Rising Stars Game, Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been selected to participate in this year's slam-dunk contest. Antetokounmpo will compete against Minnesota's Zach LaVine, Orlando's Victor Oladipo and Brooklyn's Mason Plumlee. (Source: Fox Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Giannis Anteokounmpo has definetly earned a spot with some highlight reel dunks this season. While his dunking has earned praise his overall game has been inconsistent. Fantasy owners have seen flashes of how good Anteokounmpo can be. He can contribute across the board with points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. He should be owned just for his potential but he will continue to frustrate owners with up and down production.

Fantasy Impact: This just re-affirms Coach Kidd's trust in the young buck. Extra quarters always bolster box scores so his final line of 16 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and three blocks should be considered slightly inflated. Regardless, his stock is steadily on the rise.

Fantasy Impact: The sigh of relief heard around Milwaukee. After losing Jabari for the season, this is great news for fantasy owners and Bucks fans. Giannis was playing incredible to start the game after the loss of Jabari before he went down, and will look to take on a larger role going forward.

Fantasy Impact: Giannis did not warm-up after halftime, and was replaced in the 2nd half starting line-up. Will update with a timetable when the information becomes available, but after reviewing the play via the source, it's likely just a sprain and should be considered day-to-day for the time being

Fantasy Impact: Giannis played only 25 minutes after accruing 5 fouls, yet managed to salvage a decent line despite the low minutes. He should still be considered a stash/start depending on league size, as his minutes should be consistent with Jabari Parker and Brandon Knight assuming he limits his fouls.

Fantasy Impact: There was no reason for him to make a comeback in the disappointing loss tonight. Owners should be relieved that Antetokounmpo had more time to rest tonight and did not try to play through the pain. Look for him to bounce back with no minutes restriction in the next one, Jason Kidd seems to trust him on both ends of the floor

Fantasy Impact: Coach Jason Kidd is notorious for keeping his starting line-up in question right up until tip off, but signs are leading to Giannis playing tonight. He's becoming a key component in the Buck's lineup, especially with his great perimeter defensive skill set. However owners be wary, his minutes may remain low tonight to avoid further damage to his ankle.

 

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 13 points to lead the Bucks in scoring in their 95-86 loss against the Bulls. Antetokounmpo also added eight rebounds and an assist in 27 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: Antetokounmpo recieved his season high in minutes, and produced season highs in points and rebounds. Fantasy owners had to think that the Bucks' rotation would get better when coach Larry Drew was fired. However, coach Jason Kidd has been picked up where Drew left off. If Kidd gives Antetokounmpo minutes, he could produce for both the Bucks, and fantasy owners.
