F - HOU
Robert Covington scored 21 points with six made three-pointers in the Rockets' game 7 win against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Covington also had 10 rebounds, two assists, three steals, and three blocks.
Covington played great on both ends of the court in game 7 to help the Rockets move on to the next round. Covington has played very well for the Rockets in the past four games, but could have a tougher time moving forward as he will match up against a much tougher Los Angeles Lakers' front court. Covington may be a player to avoid in DFS until he shows some success against the Lakers.
Robert Covington put up 22 points (8-14 FG, 6-11 3PT), seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and one turnover across 31 minutes of playing time during the Rockets' 114-80 dismantling of the Thunder on Saturday.
Covington couldn't buy a bucket early on in Orlando but has since found his stroke, drilling 14 three's on just under 43 percent in the Rockets first-round series against the Thunder. Already possessing elite defensive ability, Covington is a fantastic fantasy option across any format when his shot is falling. He will look to stay hot and help the Rockets close out the series in Game 6 on Monday.
Despite Monday's loss, Robert Covington nailed 50 percent of his three's en route to 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-8 3PT), six rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two turnovers across 34 minutes during the Rockets' 114-117 loss to the Thunder on Monday.
Covington has seemingly found his stroke over the last two games after starting out ice cold in Orlando. He will remain a great value play in daily fantasy when he is knocking down the three-ball consistently.
Robert Covington posted 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3PT), two rebounds, one assist, one block and three steals across 27 minutes of action during the Rockets' 111-98 victory over the Thunder on Thursday.
Although his numbers weren't great, it was very encouraging to see him knock down two three-pointers as he was shooting 24 percent heading into Game 3. Covington will look to continue breaking out of his slump moving forward while also being a great source of defensive stats.
Robert Covington once again couldn't buy a bucket on Tuesday, posting a season-low three points (1-6 FG, 1-5 3PT), five rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 31 minutes of action during the Rockets' 123-108 victory over the Thunder in Game 1.
Covington's struggles offensively are becoming a bit concerning as the forward is shooting just under 24 percent from downtown during his time in Orlando. He usually does a fine job racking up steals and blocks on defense but it may be wise to fade him in daily fantasy until he shows any signs of life on offense. Covington is averaging 8.7 points and 7.8 rebounds per game in the Bubble.
