Puts up 12 points from bench
Monday's performance was a strong indication that Hampton will be more than just a preseason darling. After an excellent string of games in the preseason, Hampton fell on the depth chart and didn't do much in the Magic's first two games, but he woke up with an excellent total in Monday's loss. It's a good sign for Hampton, but his fantasy value will remain low unless an injury brings him into the starting five.

Solid after blowup game
We can safely assume that Anthony's performance on Sunday was an anomaly, but it's an encouraging sign for the youngster, who's been plagued by injury throughout his short career. 2021 could be the year where he puts it all together, and if he stays healthy, the rest of his game looks solid. Although Jalen Suggs appeared to be an initial threat to Anthony's usage, the team seems to be content fielding them together.

Drops 15 points in loss
Wagner is getting a lot of minutes with the new-look Magic, but his fantasy outlook is uncertain. As long as Wagner and Wendell Carter are on the court together, they negatively impact each other's fantasy potential because they are serving a similar role. The only difference is that Carter will provide more rebounds in certain situations, while Wagner will see more scoring opportunities. Both players are inexpensive in DFS formats but are tough to depend on in seasonal leagues due to their negative correlation.
