G - CHI
Bulls backup point guard Ryan Arcidiacono (health and safety protocols) is out for Thursday's game against the Wizards.
Several Bulls, including Arcidiacono, are out for Thursday's game versus the Wizards. Backup guards Garret Temple and Denzel Valentine should see a heavy uptick in minutes.
Ryan Arcidiacono scored 13 points, (5-6 FG, 3-4 3PT), 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals during his 25 minutes of floor action off the bench against the Pelicans.
Arcidiacono scored 26 fantasy points against the Pelicans and is averaging 9 on the season in standard leagues. This was his best fantasy performance on the season. He remains owned in less then 3% of all standard fantasy leagues and should remain that way until more if provided on a weekly basis.
Ryan Arcidiacono scored 12 points in just 11 minutes last night against the Thunder, shooting 5-of-6 and making both of his attempts from deep. He also had two assists and a steal.
Playing the role of "sparkplug off the bench" on a roster crowded with point guards doesn't elicit much excitement for fantasy value, but it's good to see an efficient night from the young Bull. He was seeing a bit more time on the court while Denzel Valentine was out with an ankle injury. Since Valentine's return though, Arcidiacono has failed to top 21 minutes in a game. While he's an exciting player to watch, there probably isn't much worth in fantasy consideration.
Ryan Arcidiacono scored 10 points in 16 minutes of play Friday night against the Indiana Pacers. He also had four assists and two rebounds.
With all the guards getting minutes in Chicago, Arch is buried on this roster. Look at him as a potential waiver pick-up if there is a trade or injury to Kris Dunn, Tomas Satoransky or Coby White.
Ryan Arcidiacono got another start on Tuesday with Zach LaVine (knee) out. He produced 14 points, four rebounds, and six assists in 32 minutes while shooting 5-of-8 from the field with two three-pointers.
With question marks surrounding LaVine's status going forward, Arcidiacono should continue to get some starts and extra playing time at least in the short term. He doesn't put up big fantasy production but he could be worth a look in deep leagues.
