Bradley Beal takes advantage of shorthanded Pistons’ squad

With Drummond and Griffin out, Detroit has no answer for Beal.

This game figured to be an uphill battle for the Pistons once Blake Griffin (knee) and Andre Drummond (avocado) were ruled out shortly before the game. Markieff Morris ($3,900), Derrick Rose ($6,100) and Luke Kennard ($5,400) have stepped up to help fill the void on offense, but its wasn’t enough. Morris and Rose tied for a team-high 22 points and with Rose putting up 43 DKFP while Morris scored 33.75 KDFP. Kennard has a solid 14-6-6 stat line and finished with 30 DKFP.

On defense, the Pistons clearly missed the presence of their stars. The Wizards put up 133 points, led by Bradley Beal ($9,400). He scored 35 points to go along with 10 assists in what was a monster fantasy game. Beal’s 58.25 DKFP currently leads the slate. Isaiah Thomas ($4,800) has also looked good returning from a calf injury. After missing four games, Thomas started at point guard tonight and scored 38.25 DKFP. He looks like somebody to roster going forward.
