I’ll highlight one player at each of the five positions who has played well of late and could continue that trend in the coming weeks.

A few quick notes:

  1. While someone like Derrick Favors has excelled recently, he’s benefited from the absence of Rudy Gobert, and his value doesn’t appear sustainable, especially after Gobert returned to action Monday night. The list below does not include players who have seen an obvious bump in production due to an injury.
  2. The players that I will discuss are owned in most formats, so they are not guys you can go running to the waiver wire to pick up. They are players who, if you own, you could try to sell high on. Alternatively, you could try and buy low on these players if you suspect that their owner is not as high on them as they should be.
