Duncan Robinson, SG/SF, Miami Heat (29% owned)

With Terry Rozier sidelined due to a knee injury and Josh Richardson out with a shoulder issue, Duncan Robinson has stepped up big-time for the Miami Heat. Over his last four games, Robinson has been on fire, averaging 18.8 points, 4.3 three-pointers, 1.5 rebounds, and 3.0 assists, boasting a 54.2% field goal rate and perfect from the free-throw line.

The Heat's Week 18 schedule looks promising, featuring four games, including some against less challenging opponents. They're kicking off with back-to-back games against the Sacramento Kings and Portland Trail Blazers, followed by a showdown with the Denver Nuggets, and wrapping up against the Utah Jazz.

Need a boost in points and threes for Week 18? Duncan Robinson is your man. With extended playing time due to the absence of Rozier and Richardson, he's poised to elevate your team in those categories.

Andre Drummond, C, Chicago Bulls (38% owned)

Andre Drummond has been a force in his last six games, with averages of 11.5 points, 11.3 rebounds, 0.7 steals, and 1.2 blocks. With Patrick Williams sidelined for the season due to foot surgery, Drummond will have more chances to dominate the Bulls' frontcourt.

The Chicago Bulls' Week 18 schedule is streaming gold, featuring three games in four nights starting Tuesday. They face the struggling Detroit Pistons, then the formidable Cleveland Cavaliers in a back-to-back, and cap off with a challenge against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

For those seeking rebounds and out-of-position steals, Andre Drummond is your man, particularly in deep leagues. Even as Nikola Vucevic's backup, Drummond is clocking solid minutes and making his presence felt in fantasy circles.

Grant Williams, PF/C, Charlotte Hornets (36% owned)

Grant Williams is enjoying a career resurgence with the Charlotte Hornets. Over the last five games, he's averaging 17.0 points, 2.6 threes, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.8 assists. His shooting has been on point, with a 48.3% field goal and 93.3% free-throw accuracy, placing him in the top 90 of nine-category leagues during this time.

The Hornets' Week 18 slate is favorable for fantasy owners. Their action-packed stretch starts on Thursday, following a Tuesday tip-off against the Milwaukee Bucks. They face the Bucks again on Thursday, clash with the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday, and round off the week against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

Charlotte has found a new sharpshooter in Williams, who may be overperforming but is seizing his moment with the team. He's a smart pickup for those needing a boost in points, threes, and boards, especially in deep leagues.

Taylor Hendricks, PF, Utah Jazz (5% owned)

Taylor Hendricks recently made his starting debut against the Charlotte Hornets and showed promise. Scoring 12 points, grabbing 9 rebounds, hitting a three, and dishing out an assist, he's making noise. The Utah Jazz are leaning into their youth movement, starting Hendricks and Keyonte George early. The trades of Simone Fontecchio and Kelly Olynyk open doors for Hendricks' increased role.

For those in deeper leagues, Hendricks is worth a shot. Despite the competition from Walker Kessler for court time, Hendricks has the potential to be a strong contributor, especially if the Jazz commit to their young talent. His ability to rack up threes, rebounds, and blocks could be a boon as the season winds down.

Here are some players who might also be relevant in the upcoming week:

  • Kyle Lowry, PG, Philadelphia 76ers (19% owned)
  • Andrew Nembhard, PG/SG, Indiana Pacers (15% owned)
  • Royce O’Neale, SG/SF, Phoenix Suns (8% owned)
  • Jordan Goodwin, PG, Memphis Grizzlies (2% owned)
