Several players have been returning surprisingly solid fantasy value recently, and we’ll take a look at what has been happening around the NBA over the past couple of weeks.

Herbert Jones, Bennedict Mathurin, Ayo Dosunmu, Kevin Durant and Bam Adebayo all make the list.

Risers

Herbert Jones, SF/PF, Pelicans (34.9%): Jones has been a top 30 fantasy player during his past five games with averages of 16.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.4 3-pointers, while shooting a stellar 64% from the field and 80% from the free throw line. He was helped by the absence of CJ McCollum, who missed time recently with an ankle injury, but Jones appears to be locked in right now, with or without McCollum.
