Date Player
10/27/2016 Clint Capela, Hou, F-C
Capela, a 6-foot-9 Swiss forward, replaced the departed Dwight Howard in the middle of the lineup and had 16 points and nine rebounds in Wednesday's season opener.

Analysis: Capela played in 77 games last season, and in his 35 starts he averaged 8.3 points and 7.7 rebounds while shooting 55.2 percent.
10/27/2016 Eric Gordon, Hou, SG
Gordon had 19 points and five rebounds in his Rockets debut Wednesday.

Analysis: Gordon, who agreed to a four-year, $53 million contract in the offseason, has dealt with numerous injuries during his career. He played in 64 games or less in each of the previous seven seasons.
10/27/2016 Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Cha, SF
Kidd-Gilchrist knocked down 10 of 18 shots for 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds while playing 34 minutes to lead the Hornets to a 107-96 victory at the Bradley Center.

Analysis: Considering all the health issues Kidd-Gilchrist has dealt with, this is a solid start to the season.
10/27/2016 Cody Zeller, Cha, F-C
On Wednesday, Zeller, who missed the entire preseason with a bone bruise in his right knee, made the most of his 14 minutes, scoring 15 points on 5-for-6 shooting.

Analysis: Zeller likely won't have much fantasy value but keep him in mind as a potential injury replacement throughout the season.
10/27/2016 Tony Snell, Mil, G-F
Snell was unavailable for the season opener because of a sprained left ankle.

Analysis: He has not been able to practice with the Bucks since he was acquired from Chicago in exchange for PG Michael Carter-Williams on Oct. 17.
10/27/2016 Giannis Antetokounmpo, Mil, SF
Milwaukee got a game-high 31 points from Giannis Antetokounmpo on Wednesday.

Analysis: The Greek Freak also pulled down nine boards and should earn some serious fantasy consideration.
10/27/2016 Mike Conley, Mem, PG
Conley scored 24 points Wednesday.

Analysis: Conley is a solid fantasy contributor must not someone to build a team around, obviously.
10/27/2016 Zach Randolph, Mem, F-C
Randolph had 19 points and 11 boards in 24 minutes off the bench Wednesday.

Analysis: No longer a starter, Randolph will still get quality minutes and could be used to provide fantasy depth as well.
10/27/2016 Andrew Wiggins, Min, G-F
Wiggins had 25 points Wednesday for Minnesota.

Analysis: Rounding into a pure scorer at this level, Wiggins is a solid fantasy option.
10/27/2016 Karl-Anthony Towns, Min, C
Towns had 21 points Wednesday.

Analysis: Towns is a solid player but not a must-have fantasy option at the moment.
10/27/2016 Rudy Gay, Sac, F
Gay had 22 points Wednesday.

Analysis: Gay is a solid scorer who can provide fantasy depth.
10/27/2016 DeMarcus Cousins, Sac, F-C
Cousins had 24 points Wednesday.

Analysis: Cousins is a strong fantasy option, as long as he can stay on the floor.
10/27/2016 Paul Millsap, Atl, F-C
Millsap stepped up with 28 points, seven rebounds and six assists in Thursday's 114-99 win over the Wizards. He also knocked down three 3-pointers.

Analysis: With Al Horford now in Boston, it should be interesting to see if the paint is opened up more for Millsap.
10/27/2016 Dwight Howard, Atl, F-C
Howard only finished with 11 points on Thursday, but he pulled down 19 rebounds in a win over the Wizards. He also blocked three shots.

Analysis: At the very least, Howard should be in line for some big rebounding numbers in Atlanta.
10/27/2016 Tim Hardaway Jr., Atl, G-F
Hardaway finished with 21 points and three 3-pointers in Thursday's 114-99 win over the Wizards.

Analysis: This was a surprising performance for Hardaway, who isn't expected to be a huge fantasy option this season.
10/27/2016 Markieff Morris, Was, F
Morris finished with a team-high 22 points in Thursday's loss to the Hawks.

Analysis: Morris could be a big riser in the fantasy world after averaging 12.4 points in 27 games with the Wizards last season.
10/27/2016 John Wall, Was, PG
Wall struggled in the season opener on Thursday, finishing with just 12 points on 3-of-15 shooting in a loss to the Hawks. He did, however, dish out 10 assists with four steals.

Analysis: Wall averaged a career-high 19.9 points last season and we think he'll bounce back quickly next time out.
10/27/2016 Isaiah Thomas, Bos, PG
Thomas came up big with 25 points on 10-of-15 shooting in Thursday's loss to the Bulls. He hit three 3-pointers in the contest.

Analysis: Thomas has gotten off to a solid start, totaling 50 points on 17-of-29 shooting in the first two games.
10/27/2016 Jimmy Butler, Chi, G-F
Butler had a big opener with 24 points and seven rebounds in Thursday's win over the Celtics. He also hit four 3-pointers and had two steals.

Analysis: Butler shot just 31.2 percent from 3-point range last season, so this was a promising performance from beyond the arc.
10/27/2016 Taj Gibson, Chi, F-C
Gibson proved he earned a starting role Thursday with 18 points and 10 rebounds in a win over the Celtics.

Analysis: Gibson, who averaged 6.9 rebounds last season, was a big reason why the Bulls controlled the glass against the Celtics. He could be a fantasy sleeper this season.
