Philadelphia 76ers

Eastern Atlantic

Ben Simmons totaled 17 points (8-11 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, six assists, and one steal in 42 minutes in the Sixers' 131-124 win over the Jazz on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Simmons scored 17.0 points in the Sixers' overtime win over the Jazz, making it his twenty-first consecutive double-digit scoring performance. His game's versatility and consistency heavily contribute to his upside and make him a strong play in all fantasy formats.

Danny Green totaled three points (1-6 FG, 1-5 3PT), four rebounds, one block, and one steal in 22 minutes in the Sixers' 131-124 win over the Jazz on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Green scored 3.0 points in the Sixers' overtime win over the Jazz, making it his fourth consecutive game, scoring less than 10.0 points. He is a low-volume shooter and scorer whose play is inherently inconsistent. Green has, however, demonstrated some value over his past six games, as he has managed to contribute to three or more major statistical categories in each of those contests. His low-floor and ceiling make him a risky play night-in and night-out; however, shouldn’t disqualify him from being considered for your DFS lineups.

Joel Embiid totaled 40 points (14-27 FG, 2-5 3PT, 10-13 FT), nineteen rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and one steal in 40 minutes in the Sixers' 131-124 win over the Jazz on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Embiid erupted for 40.0 points and 19.0 rebounds in the Sixers' overtime win over the Jazz, making it his third 40.0 point or more performance out of his past three games, as well as his third consecutive double-double performance. He has just completed playing some of his best basketball in February and will look to build on his excellent play in March. Embiid is an elite talent and is easily securing his place in the MVP conversation; he should also be securely aligned with your DFS lineup strategy anytime the Sixers are on the slate.

Seth Curry totaled 14 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 35 minutes in the Sixers' 131-124 win over the Jazz on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Curry scored 14.0 points in the Sixers' overtime win over the Jazz while shooting 71.4 percent from the floor and 50.0 percent from beyond the arc. He significantly regressed in his shooting efficiency last month and will look to right the ship as the Sixers fight to retain their number one spot in the Eastern Conference. Curry’s value is significantly tied to his scoring, which presents several risks to your lineup's integrity. However, his significant role in the rotation as one of the team’s core scoring assets make him a viable last-piece option for your fantasy roster.

Tobias Harris totaled 22 points (9-18 FG, 0-3 3PT, 4-5 FT), ten rebounds, two assists, one block, and one steal in 38 minutes in the Sixers' 131-124 win over the Jazz on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Harris double-doubled in the Sixers' overtime win over the Jazz, as he had 22.0 points and 10.0 rebounds to start the new month. His high-floor and ceiling are fortified by his consistent play and core role in the rotation; Harris remains a strong value to consider for your DFS lineups.

Furkan Korkmaz scored 19 points (6-14 FG, 6-13 3PT, 1-2 FT) with two rebounds, two assists, a steal, two blocks, and two turnovers across 23 minutes during Monday's 130-114 win over the Indiana Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Korkmaz came off the bench to splash six three-pointers, racking up 19 points while getting involved on defense to elevate his usual fantasy production during Monday's win. Fantasy managers can roster Korkmaz in deeper leagues but his eight-point season average across just 19 minutes is not enough to warrant a consistent start in fantasy lineups moving forward. The 76ers will host the Utah Jazz on Wednesday, which is definitely a matchup to fade Korkmaz in DFS contests.

Shake Milton scored 26 points (9-14 FG, 3-5 3PT, 5-5 FT) with four rebounds, four assists, and two turnovers across 30 minutes in Monday's 130-114 win over the Indiana Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Milton led the 76ers in minutes (30) and scoring (26) in their win against the Pacers on Monday. Fantasy managers can roster Milton moving into the All-Star break but this was one of his more explosive performances this season, so don't expect consistent repeat performances mirroring his offensive production against the Pacers. Fantasy managers can opt to insert Milton into starting lineups again when the 76ers host the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.

Mike Scott totaled six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 3PT) and one rebound in 17 minutes in the Sixers' 134-123 loss to the Jazz on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Scott scored 6.0 points in the Sixers’ loss to the Jazz. With Joel Embiid out of the rotation, Scott got the start but didn’t do anything of note. He is averaging 18.2 minutes, 4.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.1 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game while shooting 34.0 percent from the floor and 28.9 percent from beyond the arc per game this season. His limited production disqualifies him from fantasy consideration at this time.

Tyrese Maxey netted 17 points (6-12 FG, 2-3 3PT, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and three steals across 21 minutes in Monday’s 104-119 loss to the Pistons.

Fantasy Impact: Maxey was one of the few bright spots for the Sixer’s offense Monday night, scoring 17 points in just 21 minutes. The rookie is looking to carve out a role on this loaded Sixers team but has impressed in limited game action so far. Keep an eye on Maxey as the season progresses as more minutes could open up for him if he continues to play well.

Dwight Howard managed just five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 FT) with four rebounds, two steals, and one block across 24 minutes in Monday’s loss to Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: Howard received a spot start Monday night in place of Joel Embiid (back) and was virtually ineffective. With Embiid’s injury not deemed to be serious, look for Howard to return to a bench role sooner than later.

Fantasy Impact: Mathias was a hero of sorts after knocking down a go-ahead three-pointer in overtime against the Heat to secure the Sixers' victory last week. Due to unforeseen circumstances relating to COVID-19, he was thrust into the rotation to provide some stability to the line-up, with several key team members unavailable. Mathias averaged 15.4 minutes of playing time, 6.0 points, 0.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.1 steals, and 0.4 blocks per game across eight contests.

Isaiah Joe scored 13 points (4-10 FG, 4-10 3PT, 1-1 FT) and added five rebounds, one assist, and two blocks across 37 minutes in the Sixers 137-134 overtime win over the Heat.

Fantasy Impact: Joe hit four triples for the second game in a row while hitting three in his past three games. He's earned the trust of HC Doc Rivers and has seen at least 28 minutes in three straight. He's worth picking up in 12-team formats with the Sixers roster depleted because of COVID.

Tony Bradley scored 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 FT) and pulled down a game-high 15 rebounds, along with one assist, one steal, and one block across 24 minutes of action in the Sixers' 115-103 loss to the Nuggets on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley was aggressive on the glass in his second appearance of the season, pulling down 15 rebounds (five offensive) and notching his first double-double of the year. If Embiid misses any more time, Bradley is looking like Dwight Howard's backup in the short term.

Fantasy Impact: Thybulle along with 6 other 76ers have been ruled out on Saturday. We can expect the short-handed 76ers to turn to backup guards Tyrese Maxey and Isaiah Joe in his absence.
