Coach Brett Brown acknowledged Richaun Holmes as a keeper for the 76ers. Jahill Okafor was not included in this group. Holmes clearly outplayed Okafor late in the season and his transition to center has gone about as seamless as possible. If the 76ers can indeed unload Okafor, Holmes could be looking at 20 minutes off the bat next year. Given Joel Embiid's injury history, Holmes will be one of the best fantasy handcuffs out there.

Richaun Holmes scored 17 points and hit a career-high three 3-pointers in Saturday's loss to the Bucks. James Johnson is going to get a lot of love and he deserves it, but Holmes is in the mix for Waiver Wire Pickup of the Year as well. He finished 6-of-11 from the field with 10 rebounds and one block in 36 minutes and will continue to be a must-start player in the final two games of the season.

Richaun Holmes had a productive game in 24 minutes vs. the Nets on Tuesday, scoring 16 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal, three blocks and two triples. He was well on his way to a big night and hit 7-of-11 from the field, but the Nets ran away with this game and the 76ers pulled their starters early. 76ers coach Brett Brown recently described Holmes as a "lightning-in-the-bottle" player and it sounds like they want him to open the 2017-18 season as the primary backup behind Joel Embiid (knee). Prior to Tuesday, he was averaging 13.3 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steals on 60.0 percent shooting since the break, so he's obviously a must-start player the rest of the way.

76ers coach Brett Brown showered Richaun Holmes with praise. "I think a lot of the good teams have those lightning-in-the-bottle players that can just change a game," Brown said. "You know, initially, you are wondering can he be one of those. Is he a duration player? I think since he's come into the starting five, you are recognizing that there's more durability." Holmes is helping Philly fans forget about Nerlens Noel, posting averages of 13.3 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steals on 60.0 percent shooting since the break. He's been one of the best fantasy pickups of the season and is the favorite to open the 2017-18 campaign as Joel Embiid's primary backup.

Richaun Holmes led the Sixers on Wednesday with 25 points on 11-of-16 shooting, adding eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block. Holmes even went 2-of-2 from the line with just one turnover in 32 minutes, rounding out a very strong line vs. Dwight Howard and the Hawks. He made all of his attempts from within 10 feet tonight, and is a terrific fantasy option with Jahlil Okafor (knee) is sidelined.

Richaun Holmes started the first quarter and came off the bench in the second half against the Bulls on Friday, scoring eight points with three rebounds and one block. Shawn Long had his breakout game, so coach Brett Brown took it easier on Holmes in this game. Jahlil Okafor (knee) is dealing with knee soreness, so Holmes should have a clear runway for minutes the rest of the way. Even if it is close to a spilt with Long, Holmes should be owned in standard leagues.

Richaun Holmes will start at center on Friday night vs. the Bulls. Jahlil Okafor (knee) is sidelined once again on Friday night, which makes Holmes a very intriguing DFS option. Holmes has started six games this season and is averaging 13.8 points and 6.8 rebounds in those six contests, including a monster 24-point, 14-rebound effort in his most recent start on Monday. Shawn Long will backup Holmes.
