Nickeil Alexander-Walker scores 29 points in loss to the Magic

Nickeil Alexander-Walker totaled 29 points (11-18FG, 2-6 3PT, 5-5 FT), one rebound, seven assists, and one steal in 35 minutes in the Pelicans' 127-133 loss to the Magic on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Walker provided a nice "going-away" present as he scored 29 points against the Magic. This level of production is a testament to his potential; however, until the Pelicans provide him a consistent role in the rotation, it won't be realized.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker can’t “find” his shot in loss to the Kings

Nickeil Alexander-Walker totaled nine points (3-10 FG, 1-5 3PT, 2-2 FT), six assists, two steals, and one block in 24 minutes in the Pelicans' 112-106 loss to the Kings on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Walker was unable to find his shot against the Kings and shot 30.0 percent from the floor and 20.0 percent from beyond the arc. With many starters being unavailable for the season finale, it wouldn't be a surprise if he saw more opportunity to see the floor. He has shown the ability to produce when provided the playing time and will look to do so against the Magic this Thursday. Although the match-up isn't ideal, Walker could serve as an ultra-cheap value flier in DFS, given his potential upside.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker logs eight minutes in loss to the Spurs

Nickeil Alexander-Walker totaled three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3PT), and one steal in eight minutes in the Pelicans' 122-113 loss to the Spurs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Walker logged eight minutes in the Pelicans' loss to the Spurs, marking the second time he had more than five minutes of playing time in a contest since the start of the "seeding" games. Even after showing promise throughout the scrimmages, the team has shown no commitment to having him be a part of the rotation. He is a natural fade at this time.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker logs four minutes in loss to the Kings

Nickeil Alexander-Walker totaled zero points (0-2 FG), and one rebound in four minutes in the Pelicans' 140-125 loss to the Kings on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

For the second week in a row, Walker only logged four minutes for the Pelicans. Although he has the potential to produce for the team, they do not show any signs of commitment to integrating him into a meaningful role within the rotation. It would be best to keep him on waivers as he is a natural fade at this time.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker only logs four minutes in win over the Grizzlies

Nickeil Alexander-Walker totaled zero points and one rebound in four minutes in the Pelicans' 109-99 win over the Grizzlies on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Walker only logged four minutes in the Pelicans' win over the Grizzlies, after putting up 15 points in 12 minutes against the Clippers. From the past three games, it is unclear what the team is doing in their back-court. Even though both him and teammate Frank Jackson have shown the potential to add value coming off the bench, they have seen little to no time in the rotation. Due to the inconsistency of Walker's role, it would be best to keep him on your radar as a potential deep-league play, and DFS flier option as a part of a stars-and-scrubs lineup.
