Deron Williams scored 13 points on 6-of-9 shooting during Sunday's 122-73 blowout win over the Lakers, adding eight assists, five boards, one 3-pointer and zero turnovers in 26 minutes.
Williams surpassed Kevin Johnson for the No. 20 spot on all-time assist list in this one, and he now needs just 11 more dimes to pass up Muggsy Bogues for the No. 19 spot. Williams was widely regarded as one of the best point guards in the league during his Utah days, but in 2017 he’s past his prime and just clinging to late-round value. Jan 22 - 5:49 PM

Deron Williams scored 16 points during a 112-107 loss to the Jazz on Friday, adding four rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

His scoring chances should be going up, as well. Compared to when he's with J.J. Barea (calf) this season, Williams gets a 7.9 usage rate bump without JJB. Although, the sample isn't too big with just 106 minutes of Barea-Williams lineups, and also some of this is due to Dirk Nowitkzi's absence overlapping Barea's time off. Still, Williams is playing some great ball as a sell-high player due to his injury history and the Mavs losing so many games.
Jan 21 - 2:46 AM

Deron Williams hit 2-of-8 shots for six points with nine assists, three rebounds and one 3-pointer on Thursday against the Heat.

It was a quiet night for Williams who was averaging 15.1 points in the month of January heading into tonight. He has another tough task tomorrow against a good defensive Jazz team, so fantasy owners should temper their expectations. That said, he remains a must own PG in all formats.
Jan 19 - 10:36 PM

Deron Williams hit 5-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, six rebounds, nine assists and a steal in Tuesday's thrilling 99-98 win over the Bulls.

Harrison Barnes scored 20 and Dirk Nowitzki had a 10 & 10 double-double in the win, and Williams has scored in double figures in four straight games. He's averaging 13 points, 4.2 rebounds, 8.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on 48 percent shooting over his last five and should be owned in all leagues right now.
Jan 17 - 10:37 PM

Deron Williams scored 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting Sunday, to go with 10 assists, four rebounds, three 3-pointers, two steals and four turnovers in 31 minutes.

Williams has been playing very well in his past three outings, owning averages of 15.7 points, 9.7 dimes, 2.7 triples, 1.0 steal and 2.7 turnovers per game on 57.6 percent shooting, which has been good enough for mid-round value. However, the sky-high field goal percentage is unsustainable, and Williams is definitely a guy that could be rested down the stretch with the Mavs sitting on a 13-27 record, so owners may want to use this hot streak to try and sell high on the oft-injured point guard.
Jan 15 - 5:19 PM

Deron Williams called the plays in the fourth quarter on Thursday night.

D-Will was in a serious groove in the first three quarters as a scorer, but he actually didn't have any points in eight fourth-quarter minutes. Plus, the Mavs were -21.9 in net rating during that time, so technically it didn't work. Among players with fewer than 31 minutes per game, Williams ranks first in touch time per game, so this is a positive for him. He's worth owning in all leagues while he's healthy.
Jan 13 - 4:51 PM

Deron Williams hit 9-of-16 shots and four 3-pointers for 23 points and 12 assists in Thursday's win over the Suns.

This was just his second double-double of the season and it's not surprising, given how bad the Suns are against opposing guards. He's played in 25 straight games and the Mavs have five more on the schedule before a back-to-back on Jan. 25-26. He may sit in one of those, but Williams looks good to go for another week or so. He's got another good matchup on Sunday against Ricky Rubio and the Timberwolves.
Jan 13 - 12:36 AM

Deron Williams kept the Mavs in it on his bobblehead night on Thursday, scoring 20 points with four rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

The bobblehead night narrative rides again. Anyway, Williams did have a minor leg injury in the first half. He was able to return and only had quick attention from the training staff. For now, we think he'll be ready for the weekend. He should be owned in standard leagues.
Jan 5 - 11:45 PM

Deron Williams played through an illness on Tuesday vs. the Wizards and scored 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting.

He saw his normal workload of 32 minutes and helped the Mavs grab their second win out of their last three games. Williams dished out six assists with one rebound, four triples and five turnovers, and he should be in line for a couple more great games on Thursday vs. the Suns and Saturday vs. the Hawks with J.J. Barea (leg) on the shelf.
Jan 3 - 11:47 PM

Deron Williams (illness) is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. Washington.

He did not practice on Monday, but made it through the morning shootaround and was considered probable to play. He usually plays 30+ minutes per night with J.J. Barea (leg) out, so season-long owners can plug him into lineups. Seth Curry will benefit if D-Will struggles tonight.
Jan 3 - 8:23 PM

Deron Williams (illness) went through shootaround on Tuesday morning and appears to be on track to play Tuesday night vs. Washington.

Williams did not practice on Monday, but the fact that was present for and able to get through shootaround on Tuesday bodes well for his availability. After playing well for most of December, D-Will has struggled over the last week, averaging 8.3 points (on 37.5 percent shooting), 7.0 assists and 3.3 turnovers in 25.5 minutes over the Mavs last three games.
Jan 3 - 11:55 AM

Deron Williams (illness) did not practice on Monday.

He should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards. With J.J. Barea (leg) out for another week, Seth Curry could be looking at a lot of burn on Tuesday if D-Will sits. Pierre Jackson would benefit as well, but Curry would be the better play in all formats.
Jan 2 - 1:59 PM

Deron Williams hit 3-of-6 shots and a 3-pointer for eight points, 11 assists, six turnovers and six fouls on Thursday, fouling out late in the contest.

He wasn't as good as he has been and has now struggled a bit in two straight games. Devin Harris played pretty well tonight, but with J.J. Barea out with an Achilles injury, Williams is still the point guard to own in Dallas. Maybe he'll bounce back against the Raptors on Sunday.
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 01:48:00 AM

Deron Williams played 23 minutes, but hit just 2-of-11 shots (both 3-pointers) for six points, three rebounds and six assists in Tuesday's blowout 123-107 loss to the Rockets.

Deron came in cooking, but never got it going tonight. It's a little concerning that he was this bad against the Patrick Beverley-less Rockets, but this simply looks like a buy-low opportunity on Williams. Prior to this dud, Williams had scored in double figures in eight games, scoring at least 23 points in three of his previous four. He'll bounce back in the next one.
Tue, Dec 27, 2016 11:31:00 PM

Deron Williams scored 24 points with nine assists in Monday's 111-104 loss to the Pelicans.

He's either as healthy as he's been in years or he's found a time machine, because D-Will is rolling right now. He shot 9-of-18 from the field in 32 minutes and added two rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers, and he's now scored 23 or more points in three out of his last four games. He belongs in all active lineups right now, but selling high before he gets hurt would be a wise move.
