  2. Harry Giles (22% rostered) — Giles has been starting for the Kings consistently for the last six games and has been putting up encouraging numbers in them. In those games, he averaged 12.8/7.3/2 along with roughly a stock a game.
  3. Norman Powell (35% rostered) — Powell is back from injury and has picked up right where he left off. In his first two games back, Powell put up 22 and 24 points, taking 18 field goal attempts in each.
