Mason Plumlee totaled 12 points (6-9 FG), six rebounds, five assists, and two blocks, and one steal in 25 minutes in the Pistons' 118-104 loss to the Sixers on Saturday.
Plumlee “stuffed” the stat-sheet in the Pistons’ loss to the Sixers, putting up a respectable performance line in his return. He has great upside and is a consistent producer, and if his availability wasn’t so spotty, he might be worth more consideration than he currently is. Plumlee is a viable value play for your DFS lineups; however, it would be best to monitor his status and planned use carefully before committing him to your roster.
Detroit Pistons C Mason Plumlee (rest) will not play against the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday due to rest.
With Plumlee receiving a night off to rest, Isaiah Stewart becomes a great value play in point formats, averaging 13 points and 6.7 rebounds across his last four games. He will have even more opportunity to generate production in the starting lineup against a Hornets team that allows 52.31 FanDuel points per game to opposing centers. Stewart can be rostered for $6,200 on FanDuel during Tuesday's seven-game slate.
Mason Plumlee totaled 10 points (5-6 FG, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, and one block in 21 minutes in the Pistons' 100-86 win over the Hawks on Monday.
Plumlee "cooled off" in the Pistons’ win over the Hawks, regressing considerably in his production from his effort against the Pacers this past Saturday. His performance against Hawks is more telling of his true value level. Plumlee is an intriguing last-piece play for a unique build or stars-and-scrubs lineup. His upside and price-point can make him an attractive asset to have in GGPs, but be sure to remember that his consistency can vary significantly from game to game.
Mason Plumlee totaled 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-4 FT), twenty-one rebounds, five assists, and two blocks in 29 minutes in the Pistons' 115-109 loss to the Pacers on Saturday.
Plumlee had 21.0 rebounds in the Pistons’ loss to the Pacers, contributing to his 17.0 point double-double. His second consecutive double-double didn’t see Plumlee miss a step, as he dominated the boards while shooting an efficient 77.8 percent from the floor. He can put up slate-breaking performances; however, the consistency between those performances can be less reliable than one would like. His upside, role, and price-point make him a viable fantasy option for your DFS lineups.
Mason Plumlee totaled 13 points (4-4 FG, 5-5 FT), sixteen rebounds, and seven assists in 32 minutes in the Pistons' 127-117 loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday.
Plumlee double-doubled in the Pistons’ loss to the Mavericks, scoring 13.0 points to go along with 16.0 rebounds. If he hadn’t been in foul trouble up until the point of fouling out, his line might have looked even better. Plumlee was productive in his return and put up a well-received stat-line making it even harder for Isaiah Stewart to differentiate himself into a more meaningful role. Plumlee has a high floor and a modest ceiling. If positioned well in the right lineup his value could bode well for your overall success.
