Raymond Felton will exercise his $3.9 million option for next season.
This was an obvious move for Felton. He'll probably only fetch the veteran minimum on the open market even though he was surprisingly effective down the stretch. Felton is still nowhere near being on the fantasy radar next season even with Rajon Rondo headed out of town. May 8 - 2:42 PM

Raymond Felton played through a mild hamstring injury on Sunday but he finished with only two points and one rebound in six minutes.

Felton didn't have any assists or defensive stats and he's unlikely to play more than 10-15 minutes on Tuesday even if his hamstring is 100 percent healthy. Even with Rajon Rondo unavailable, Felton is buried on the depth chart behind J.J. Barea and Devin Harris at PG.
Apr 27 - 12:39 AM

Raymond Felton (hamstring) is expected to play in Sunday's Game 4.

The absence of Rajon Rondo has thrust Felton into a bigger role in the playoffs, averaging 15.0 minutes in Games 2 and 3. He's a dubious source of daily fantasy value, however, at least while Monta Ellis, Devin Harris and J.J. Barea are in uniform.
Apr 26 - 7:29 PM

Raymond Felton (hamstring) is still planning to play against the Rockets on Sunday, but head coach Rick Carlisle said he will be a game-time decision.

Felton's presence is very important now that Rajon Rondo (back) is away from the team, but he still probably won't see too many minutes if he is cleared to play. Instead, Monta Ellis will handle the bulk of the ball-handling responsibilities, while J.J. Barea and Devin Harris will play more as well. Expect an update on Dallas' lineup prior to tip-off.

Raymond Felton (hamstring) is expected to play in Game 4 on Sunday, but is listed as questionable.

He suffered the injury in the first quarter and was able to return. Felton played just 13 minutes and didn't score. J.J. Barea was by far the best point guard for the Mavs and he could wind up starting. Felton is not likely to play more than 20 minutes in any game the rest of the way.
Apr 25 - 2:47 PM

Raymond Felton suffered a right hamstring tweak in the first quarter and returned to action on Friday, finishing with no points, four rebounds, one assist and one foul in 13 minutes.

He got the start and just looked a step slow. It might not have been due to the hamstring tweak and it may have just been because he had to guard James Harden. Felton did have a right hamstring injury back in 2008, but there really hasn't been a trend here. Considering how poorly he played, he probably won't start in Game 4 and his status is questionable.
Apr 24 - 10:19 PM

Raymond Felton will start against the Rockets on Friday in place of Rajon Rondo (back).

Usually, the Mavs would go with J.J. Barea, but they're so thin that they need to get Felton in the rotation because of Chandler Parsons (knee) also out. Felton is likely going to act as an off-ball guard while Monta Ellis handles the offense. Barea is not as attractive in fantasy leagues because it's going to be tough for him to log at least 24 minutes. Additionally, the Mavs used a three-guard lineup of Monta, Felton and Barea three minutes in the second half in Game 2, so coach Rick Carlisle will likely go that route again. Devin Harris should also get minutes close to 20.
Apr 24 - 6:49 PM

Raymond Felton started on Monday with most of the starters resting against the Jazz, scoring seven points on 3-of-8 shooting with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

Owners looking at Felton if the Mavs rest everybody again on Wednesday should consider this his baseline, and anything above that would be a donut on top.
Apr 14 - 4:13 AM

Raymond Felton pitched in 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting off the Mavericks' bench on Sunday, adding two rebounds and three assists in 18 minutes with Devin Harris resting.

Rajon Rondo could sit out on Monday or Wednesday, giving Felton a narrow window of opportunity. He looked exhausted at times tonight and is unlikely to be part of the Mavs' playoff rotation, so enjoy it while it lasts.
Apr 13 - 12:17 AM

Raymond Felton started for Rajon Rondo (rest) on Friday against the Nuggets, scoring 13 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block.

We joked about a revenge game earlier and he totally came through. He's hungry (pun partially intended) to show that he can still play and if Rondo misses more games and he continues to start -- he'll be worth a look as a flier pickup.
Apr 11 - 3:26 AM

Raymond Felton will start on Friday night against the Nuggets.

Revenge game? Kidding aside, Felton should see around 20 minutes in the starting lineup tonight. He's obviously not someone you'll want to trust.
Apr 10 - 8:56 PM

Raymond Felton went scoreless in five minutes off the Mavs bench on Sunday, failing to take advantage of Devin Harris' absence with a hand injury.

This is Felton's season in a nutshell. His conditioning has been an issue over the past few seasons and he's buried on the depth chart behind Rajon Rondo, Devin Harris and J.J. Barea, eliminating him from contention in all fantasy leagues.
Mar 9 - 12:10 AM

Raymond Felton made his first start of the season against the Nuggets on Wednesday with 10 points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers.

Not bad. He's been a DNP-CD almost the entire season and played a combined 15 minutes on the year before tonight. Felton can be ignored in almost all leagues unless the Mavericks bench 60 percent of their starting lineup again. If you're in a deep league, you can keep an eye on Rajon Rondo's Achilles.
Jan 14 - 11:37 PM

Raymond Felton will start at PG on Wednesday with Rajon Rondo (ankle) sidelined.

Devin Harris is still the PG to target if you're looking for value in Rondo's absence, and there's no reason to trust Felton in typical formats. He's averaging a mere three minutes in five appearances this season, but is at least worth watching with Rondo's return date up in the air.
Jan 14 - 7:51 PM

Raymond Felton (ankle) was on the Mavericks' active list for the first time all season on Sunday, but he failed to record any statistics in one minute of action.

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle was clearly unimpressed during Felton's brief stint, during which he racked up a +/- rating of -5. He may have stayed on the inactive list if the Mavs weren't deploying a small lineup in Tyson Chandler's absence, and there's simply no reason to touch him in fantasy leagues.
