Chris Paul scored 26 points on 12-of-20 shooting with four rebounds, 14 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in Monday's win over the Wolves.
Paul has fallen into the category of used toy this season and is getting practically no MVP buzz despite another excellent season. In fantasy terms, he's still a top-half of the first round guy whenever he has stepped on the floor. Mar 2 - 11:49 PM

Chris Paul was incredible during Sunday's win over the Bulls, scoring 28 points on 12-of-19 shooting, with 12 assists, five rebounds, one block and just one turnover through 38 minutes of action.

Efficiency is why Paul is such an elite option in fantasy leagues, and he was particularly amazing during the month of February with averages of 19.1 points, 11.5 assists, 1.6 steals, and just 2.6 turnovers per game on 47.1 percent shooting from the field. Over the past month Paul has emerged as the league leader in assists per game, but his value will take a minor hit when Blake Griffin (elbow) returns to action.
Mar 1 - 3:31 PM

Chris Paul scored 19 points against the Grizzlies on Friday with four rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, one turnover and one 3-pointer.

The Grizzlies gave out flip-flops tonight and it wasn't a coincidence because their team/fans haven't been bashful about saying the Clippers flop a lot. As for Paul, his numbers in his last nine are amazing, averaging 20.0 points, 4.8 boards, 12.1 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 treys on 49.3 percent from the field. The Clippers are playing very well without Blake Griffin (elbow).

Chris Paul handed out 14 assists against the Rockets during a 110-105 loss on Wednesday, adding 22 points, three rebounds and two 3-pointers.

He's up to 9.9 assists per game and is getting very close to catching John Wall's league-leading 10.1. Paul has put up some fantasy MVP-type numbers in his last eight, averaging 20.1 points, 4.9 boards, 12.0 boards, 1.5 assists and 1.3 treys on 49.2 percent from the field and 93.5 percent from the field. He and DeAndre Jordan are carrying the Clippers right now with a little Jamal Crawford, as well.
Feb 26 - 2:44 AM

Chris Paul was spectacular pretty much all night on Monday, scoring 30 points, four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and two threes, but a late turnover sealed the Clippers' 90-87 loss to the Grizzlies.

Paul is gaining a reputation for mistakes in big moments and that's a bit unfair, but he's still in his prime and he can totally redeem himself by going huge in the playoffs. He has dropped off a bit in the overall rankings with just top 5-7 value on a per-game basis in 9- and 8-cat leagues, respectively, but counting games played he's a top 3-4 asset.
Feb 24 - 1:47 AM

Chris Paul handed out 16 assists against the Spurs on Thursday during a 119-115 win, adding 22 points, five rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers.

This was a huge win for the Clippers to move them up to No. 5 in the Western Conference standings. CP3's numbers have taken off without Blake Griffin (elbow) in his last three, averaging 19.7 points, 5.7 boards, 13.7 assists and 1.3 treys -- all wins against Western Conference playoff teams (Spurs, Rockets and Mavericks). Paul raised his assists to 9.8 per game with tonight's performance and there's a chance he can catch John Wall and Ty Lawson (10.1) for the league lead.
Feb 20 - 2:25 AM

Chris Paul finished Sunday's blowout loss to the Thunder with 18 points (7-of-13 shooting), 13 assists, six rebounds, three steals and just one turnover over 36 minutes of action.

Paul also was a perfect 4-of-4 from the charity stripe, making this the prototypical CP3 line. His ability to hand out assists at an elite level, while limiting his turnovers and hitting a high percentage of his shots makes him an elite asset in fantasy leagues, and he'll need to carry a larger load on offense with Blake Griffin expected to miss at least 4-weeks with a staph infection. Keep rolling him out there.
Feb 8 - 3:34 PM

The NBA has fined Chris Paul $25,000 for his public criticism of officials.

Paul received a technical foul during Thursday's game against the Cavaliers for criticizing female referee Lauren Holtkamp for not allowing him to inbound the ball as fast as he would have liked. Paul obviously isn't going to face a suspension, so his owners can deploy him like they normally would moving forward.
Feb 7 - 10:55 AM

Chris Paul scored 22 points with six rebounds, nine assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

He was under the microscope tonight for saying that being a referee might not be for Lauren Holtkamp. "Last night was about a bad call," Paul said before Friday's game. "That's all." The Clippers do tend to complain a lot and lead the NBA in technical fouls. As for his play, CP3 is a top-10 fantasy asset.
Feb 6 - 10:19 PM

Chris Paul scored just 10 points with two rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

He had four consecutive 20-point games before this dud, but he hasn't had a double-digit dime game since Jan. 25. Paul has also struggled from the line in that span and only made 50 percent from there in his last four. The good news is that he's avoided injury this season and he's still been a top-10 player in the past month in standard leagues.
Feb 5 - 10:24 PM

Chris Paul scored 20 points with six assists, three boards, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

He did turn the ball over five times, but the Spurs aren't exactly the easiest team to go up against so his owners should give him a pass. CP3 has now scored more than 20 points in four of his last five games, and he's one of the main reasons why the Clippers are finally starting to figure things out this season.
Feb 1 - 12:57 AM

Chris Paul scored 24 points on 10-of-20 shooting (including three treys) with eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals in Friday's loss to the Pelicans.

Paul has been a top 5-6 player this season and that's right around his ADP. DeAndre Jordan went for 12 and 15 with three blocks in the loss.
Jan 31 - 1:39 AM

Chris Paul flirted with a triple-double during Sunday's win in Phoenix, getting 23 points with three 3-pointers, eight rebounds, 12 assists and two steals.

He committed an uncharacteristic four turnovers, but made up for it by shooting 7-of-11 from the field and 6-of-7 at the FT line. The Clippers have now won four straight games, tying them with Houston for the No. 4 seed in the unforgiving Western Conference.
Jan 25 - 9:47 PM

Chris Paul handed out 17 assists in just 24 minutes against the Nets on Thursday with six points, three steals and one 3-pointer.

Coach Doc Rivers in 1987 was the last player to hand out 17 assists in less than 25 minutes. The Clippers also set an NBA season high with the 41 assists as a team. Paul has handed out at least nine assists in all but one of his 10 games in 2015, so he certainly could pass John Wall for the league lead in assists per game soon.
Jan 23 - 1:46 AM

Chris Paul was quiet against the Celtics on Monday, making 3-of-9 from the field for nine points with six rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

Kudos to Marcus Smart for putting the clamps on CP3 today. Paul's scoring has suddenly fallen off in his last three, scoring just 12.0 points on 29.7 percent from the field. After making an incredible 54.7 percent from the field in November, he's failed to make above 44 percent in both January and December. Expect him to turn it around soon.
