Kenny Atkinson happy with DeMarre Carroll at power forward in Brooklyn

Brooklyn Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson was happy with DeMarre Carroll's play at the power forward spot against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.

What It Means:

"We felt like we need more shooting [at power forward]," said Atkinson, adding, "with DeMarre in there at the four, we can really spread them out. [the defense] can't really help." Carroll is averaging 14.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 27.7 minutes per game in his first season in Brooklyn.

numberFire's models project Carroll for 12.4 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists -- good for 25.9 FanDuel points -- in 29.0 minutes against the Orlando Magic on Tuesday.

Rodney Hood (calf) listed as questionable for Jazz on Tuesday

Utah Jazz guard Rodney Hood (calf) went through portions of practice on Monday and is questionable for Tuesday's game versus the Los Angeles Clippers.

What It Means:

Donovan Mitchell got the start on Saturday for Hood and he played well in 28 minutes of action. Alec Burks also saw 20 minutes with Hood out, so if that happens again on Tuesday, look for those two to fill the void left at shooting guard.

If he is able to play, our early models project Hood for 15.9 FanDuel points over 22.8 minutes per game on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Lakers' Corey Brewer unlikely to have big role as a reserve moving forward

After playing 33 minutes in a start on Friday, Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward Corey Brewer returned to the bench on Sunday against the New Orleans Pelicans, getting just 2 points and 2 rebounds in 9 minutes of action.

What It Means:

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope returned from a two-game suspension on Sunday, sending Brewer back to the bench. Brewer is unlikely to play heavy minutes as a reserve unless an injury opens up playing time. The Lakers play the Washington Wizards at home on Wednesday.

Looking forward to Wednesday, numberFire projects Brewer to score just 9.8 fantasy points on FanDuel.

Lakers' Julius Randle frustrated about coming off the bench

Los Angeles Lakers power forward Julius Randle is "a little frustrated" about not starting, according to head coach Luke Walton.

What It Means:

Randle has come off the bench for each of his three games this season, and Walton has said that Randle's bench role is "not about whoever being better or playing better, it's about what units play well," indicating that Randle's success with the second unit isn't likely to lead to a move into the starting lineup in the near future.

Randle is averaging only 9.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 18.3 minutes per game this season, but numberFire's models project him for 30.2 FanDuel points on 13.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 28.1 minutes against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.

Philadelphia's Ben Simmons drawing early MVP money in Vegas

Ben Simmons' fantastic opening week performance is turning some heads in Las Vegas.

What It Means:

Simmons became the first player since Oscar Robertson to produce at least 10 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in each of his first three career games. The rookie forward's hot start has caused his MVP odds to change from 80/1 to 33/1, putting him ahead of Damian Lillard, Blake Griffin and tying him with DeMarcus Cousins.

Our models project Simmons for 28.8 FanDuel points on Monday night. We have him pegged for 14.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 34.41 minutes of action. The Australian-born rookie will cost $8,000 for Monday's slate.
