Grabs 13 boards in loss
For the most part, Green has been underwhelming since he entered the starting lineup back on Nov. 8, posting averages of 11.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.1 threes in his last 13 games entering Monday. As has been the case throughout his career, however, Green is capable of occasionally reminding fantasy managers why he was the No. 5 overall pick back in the 2007 NBA Draft. Managers shouldn't expect the rebounding outburst to continue, as prior to Monday, Green hadn't grabbed more than five boards in any game this season.

Adds 19 points in loss
Coming off of a nine-point effort in Saturday's win over the Knicks, Morris bounced back to score in double figures for the sixth time in the last seven games. The Iowa State product has started every game this season with Jamal Murray (knee) sidelined, and while he hasn't taken much of a step forward compared to last season, he's capable of providing lower-end value in points, assists and threes. Morris is shooting just 33.7 percent from downtown on the season, however, after hitting 38.1 percent of his attempts in 2020-21. He's also attempted only 10 free throws in nearly 700 total minutes.

Puts up triple-double in loss
While the Nuggets were out-classed in the second half, Jokic came through with another elite effort to post his third triple-double of the season. The big man has struggled a bit from three of late (5-19 3Pt over last four games), but any criticism of his fantasy profile is nitpicking. Last season's No. 1 overall player in nearly all formats, Jokic remains one of the league's most unique and valuable producers, with the only real black mark being the fact that he's missed five of Denver's first 23 games.
