Raymond Felton said that he's hopeful to return with the Mavs as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
"I'm pretty sure I put myself in a good situation," Felton said when asked if he felt he increased his earning potential after putting in averages of 15.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.6 assists through the first-round of the playoffs. "Hopefully, that situation is back here again next year and we can make that happen. I love Dallas." Felton's fantasy value will hinge upon what Dallas does with their point guard situation next season, but it's tough to see him establishing himself as a standard league asset. Apr 26 - 3:05 PM

Raymond Felton scored 19 points during a loss to the Thunder on Saturday, adding three rebounds, 11 assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

It's definitely Felton time. Deron Williams (hernia) is likely out for the playoffs while J.J. Barea is clearly limited. He's playing really well this round and has become a major part of the offense, averaging 16.3 points, 5.0 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 treys in 35.8 minutes in his last four games. It's not too far-fetched to expect even a slight uptick going forward.
Apr 23 - 11:57 PM

Raymond Felton scored 18 points in a start on Thursday vs. the Thunder, adding four assists, three boards, four steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

Deron Williams (hernia) missed tonight's game and it sounds like he could miss more time, so Felton could have another start coming his way. He also played well in Game 2 with 21 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes, so owners in DFS should keep rolling with him while his price is still low.
Apr 21 - 10:39 PM

Raymond Felton scored 21 points during an 85-84 win over the Thunder on Monday, adding 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

Felton did miss both late free throws and said after the game he'll be shooting 500 free throws in practice. Felton needed to run more point guard than usual with J.J. Barea (groin) not playing and Deron Williams hurting. He should be charged with a lot of responsibility on Thursday for Game 3.
Apr 18 - 11:40 PM

According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN, Raymond Felton could start in place of J.J. Barea (groin) in Game 2 vs. the Thunder on Monday.

Deron Williams (hernia) is listed as doubtful but will try to play, while J.J. Barea has already been ruled out. In 31 previous starts during the regular season, Felton posted averages of 11.4 points, 4.3 assists, 3.8 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.1 3-pointers. He will be a solid option in DFS if Williams joins Barea on the shelf.
Apr 18 - 1:24 PM

Raymond Felton started the second half against the Thunder on Saturday, finishing with seven points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

He is likely headed for more run with J.J. Barea (groin) aggravating his injury. This is a bad matchup for Felton against the athletic Thunder backcourt, so it's still going to be tough to trust him as anything more than a punt in DFS.
Apr 17 - 12:12 AM

Raymond Felton scored 22 points vs. the Spurs on Wednesday, adding four boards, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He was forced into heavy playing time due to the absences of J.J. Barea (groin) and Devin Harris (thumb), but the Mavs should be back to full strength during the postseason which means Felton will have a smaller role.
Apr 14 - 12:14 AM

Raymond Felton scored 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting Sunday, to go with four boards, five assists, one 3-pointer, two blocks and four turnovers in 31 minutes off the bench.

J.J. Barea (groin) was not available for this one, so Deron Williams' return from a sports hernia didn't affect Felton's minutes at all. He looked poised for a monster game going into halftime, scoring 15 points on 5-of-8 shooting while posting a ridiculous usage rate of 39.0, but was unable to keep his momentum going as he connected on just 2-of-6 shots in the second half. If Barea can't play Monday vs. Utah, Felton should again be busy off the Dallas' bench.
Apr 10 - 6:43 PM

Raymond Felton dropped a season-high 14 assists during the Mavs 103-93 win over the Grizzlies on Friday, adding 11 points, six boards, two steals, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 36 minutes.

J.J. Barea exited the game during the first quarter with a groin injury and did not return, which resulted in Felton moving into the starting five to begin the second half. If Barea is unable to give it a go Sunday vs. the Clippers, that will leave Felton and Devin Harris as the only remaining guys on the Dallas roster capable of playing the point guard position. He did appear to tweak his groin injury, but he played through it, and it would be surprising to see the injury force Felton to miss any time given how badly they need him on the court right now. He's worth a look in most leagues.
Apr 9 - 1:59 AM

Raymond Felton (groin) struggled in 18 minutes off the bench on Sunday, scoring two points on 1-of-6 shooting with three rebounds and three assists.

Felton tested the injury in pre-game warmups and felt good, giving the Mavs some much-needed minutes in the backcourt alongside J.J. Barea and Devin Harris. Rick Carlisle deploys Felton in both traditional and small-ball lineups, yielding solid playing time, but his shot has abandoned him and he lacks substantial fantasy appeal.
Apr 3 - 6:57 PM

Raymond Felton (groin) will be available to play Sunday vs. the Timberwolves.

Felton looks set to return from a one-game stint on the sidelines, and his minutes could be in the 30s tonight with Deron Williams (groin) out of commission. Devin Harris' value takes a bit of a hit with Felton active.
Apr 3 - 3:22 PM

Rick Carlisle said that he's optimistic that Raymond Felton (groin) will be able to suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

Felton was forced to the sidelines on Friday night with the groin injury, but he's currently getting treatment from the Mavs medical staff and will go through his pregame routine with the intention of giving it a go. It sounds like he's headed for a game-time call, but if he is able to play, he'll be looking at some quality minutes with Deron Williams (groin) unavailable. Stay tuned.
Apr 3 - 2:12 PM

Raymond Felton (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Wolves.

Deron Williams (sports hernia) is out, meaning J.J. Barea and Devin Harris could be looking at big minutes on Sunday. We should have another update after the morning shootaround, but Felton's only on the radar in deeper leagues anyways.
Apr 3 - 9:43 AM

Raymond Felton (groin) is out for Friday night against the Pistons.

He has a right groin strain and the Mavs will miss him tonight. J.J. Barea should see a ton of run i the first unit while Devin Harris may actually get more run at the point. Not having Felton should also get Justin Anderson some extra run, too. Felton can be dropped in most leagues.
Apr 1 - 6:54 PM

Raymond Felton started at point guard on Monday vs. the Nuggets and scored 11 points with five boards, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

He finished 3-of-8 from the field and had one turnover, but the minutes were nice. Deron Williams (groin, abdominal strain) doesn't have a timetable to return and coach Rick Carlisle isn't afraid to use Felton next to J.J. Barea, so he's on the radar in deeper leagues.
