Jaden McDaniels scores 13 points in defeat to Milwaukee

Jaden McDaniels pitched in 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3PT), four rebounds, and two turnovers in Wednesday's loss to the Bucks.

Fantasy Impact

McDaniels has now recorded seven double-figure scoring games in his last 12. He still hasn't been consistent enough to be rostered in 12-team leagues, but is worth owning in deeper formats.

Jaden McDaniels drops 18 points in win against Knicks

Jaden McDaniels registered 18 points (7-13 FG, 4-9 3PT), five rebounds, three assists, and two turnovers in Wednesday's victory over New York.

Fantasy Impact

Tonight marked McDaniels' fourth straight double-figure scoring effort. A key reason for this is coach Chris Finch ramping up his minutes to the mid-30s. As long as McDaniels continues to see this amount of action each contest, he is worth rostering in all formats. He'll look to keep rolling against the Grizzlies on Friday night.

Jaden McDaniels has perfect shooting night; scores 14 points in win

Jaden McDaniels pitched in 14 points (5-5 FG, 2-2 3PT, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and two blocks in Friday's win against the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact

McDaniels was coming off six straight games of single-digit scoring efforts, but broke that streak tonight, as he fired in 100% of his field goal and free throw attempts. The rookie out of Washington has certainly showed plenty of promise and provides a ton of value on defense. For now, however, McDaniels should remain on the waiver wire until he can get more consistent on offense.

Jaden McDaniels records career-high 20 points in win against New Orleans

Jaden McDaniels compiled 20 points (8-9 FG, 4-5 3PT, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist, two steals, and three blocks in Thursday night's victory versus the Pelicans.

Fantasy Impact

This was easily McDaniels' best game of his career, as he knocked down 8-of-9 shots from the field, picked up two steals, and swatted three shots. However, fantasy managers in deeper leagues will want to see more consistency out of McDaniels prior to adding him.

Jaden McDaniels registers first career double-figure scoring game

Jaden McDaniels produced 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3PT), eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, and three blocks in Wednesday night's defeat to the Magic.

Fantasy Impact

McDaniels saw a very healthy 26 minutes of action tonight, after getting slightly over 10 minutes in each of his previous two games. He additionally recorded a team-high +/- of +19, despite the tough loss. It's too early to recommend managers in deeper leagues to pick up McDaniels, but he should be on watchlists.
