Rookie Stock Watch and Recent Hot Streaks

Podcast cover
Read more

Matt Stroup and Tommy Beer check in on the star NBA rookies, and underline why Deandre Ayton remains the top rookie to own going forward -- even over Luka Doncic and Jaren Jackson Jr. Plus, why you might be able to capitalize on the hype surrounding Doncic, and why it may be worth exercising caution on Jackson Jr. We also break down some recent hot streaks (including Jaylen Brown, Darren Collison and Justise Winslow), and try to measure just how sustainable they might be. And in Part 3 of the show, we review Matt's updated fantasy top 50, and gauge the value of Victor Oladipo and Chris Paul going forward. (You can check out Matt's fantasy top 50 on Rotoworld right here.)
