Rajon Rondo flirted with a triple-double against the Bucks on Wednesday with 10 points, nine rebounds, 13 assists, one block and four turnovers.
He's leading the NBA in assists and he's had at least nine dimes in each of his last 10 games. Rondo also has pulled down 9.1 boards per game in his last 10, adding averages of 12.9 points and 14.0 dimes in that span. Rondo has put up early-round value this month and his owners are getting a hefty return on investment right now. Nov 25 - 11:43 PM

Rajon Rondo handed out a season-high 20 assists during a loss to the Hornets on Monday, adding 14 points, eight rebounds, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

It's the most assists in an NBA game this season and now Rondo has twice as many 15-dime games as the rest of the NBA with four (Russell Westbrook and Brandon Knight). Coach George Karl is running Rondo into the ground right now, so hopefully the wheels don't fall off. In his last eight games, Rondo is putting up second-round value and selling high makes a lot of sense.

Rajon Rondo was superb against the Magic during a win on Saturday, scoring 13 points with seven rebounds, nine assists, three steals, three 3-pointers and one turnover.

While this wasn't quite as eye-popping as some of his other games and he did snap his double-digit dime streak, Rondo had his most efficient game and had one turnover for just the second game all year. After the game he was asked by the Kings broadcast team if he was playing like he was in his prime. "I'm in my prime now," Rondo said. His value will go up sans Rudy Gay (shoulder) and is a must-start player.

Rajon Rondo filled the stat sheet yet again during a 116-109 loss to the Heat on Thursday, scoring 14 points with nine rebounds, 18 assists, one steal, two 3-pointers and three turnovers.

That's the most assists handed out in a game this season. Rondo had his third game with at least 15 assists, which is more than the rest of the league combined (Russell Westbrook and Brandon Knight each have one). There's no doubt Rondo is putting up monster numbers, but the perception is a lot greater than his actual fantasy output with only mid-round value on the season. He's obviously a must-start player, but selling high makes a lot of sense.
Nov 19 - 10:10 PM

Rajon Rondo had the fourth triple-double of his season on Wednesday with 12 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and seven turnovers.

He was 6-of-9 from the field and didn't go to the line in his 31 minutes. Rondo didn't have his best game defensively and coach George Karl won't like all those turnovers, so he'll likely be around 30 minutes most nights. After a monster run last week, Rondo will probably trend down now that Darren Collison is back. He's still worth owning in all leagues, of course.
Nov 18 - 10:29 PM

Rajon Rondo piled up seven points, seven rebounds, 14 assists and two steals in 43 minutes on Sunday, but he also shot 3-of-10 from the field with seven turnovers.

Rondo has overtaken Steph Curry, Kyle Lowry and John Wall for most touches per game, at a whopping 95.9, and he also leads the league in passes per game at 72.4. He's likely to calm down once Darren Collison returns, but Chris Webber's franchise record for triple-doubles in a season (five) is already in serious jeopardy.
Nov 15 - 11:51 PM

Rajon Rondo played 44 minutes against the Nets and posted a triple-double, scoring 23 points with 10 rebounds, 14 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

He was 10-of-19 from the field and 1-of-4 from the line. Rondo did have a bone-headed out-of-bounds play late in the game as he tried to throw a pass off Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, but it bounced off RHJ and back on Rondo. Bad plays aside, Rondo is on fire with his third triple-double of the week. He was benched for most of the second half in the last game Darren Collison (hamstring) was healthy, so it'll be interesting to see what happens when DC is back. If you can sell high on Rondo, it makes a lot of sense.
Nov 14 - 4:22 AM

Rajon Rondo notched his second triple-double of the season on Wednesday with 14 points, 11 rebounds and 15 assists, helping the Kings upset the visiting Pistons.

Rondo added three steals and made one 3-pointer, and the triple-double helps distract from his poor shooting (6-of-16 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs) and high turnovers (five). He played every minute of the game and has seen his role expand in Darren Collison's absence, something to keep in mind with DC day-to-day. With two triple-doubles in the past three games, Rondo's owners should just cross their fingers and hope that he keeps rolling.
Nov 12 - 1:17 AM

Rajon Rondo played all 48 minutes in Monday's loss to the Kings, scoring eight points with 12 assists, six boards and three steals with nine turnovers.

The turnovers were obviously a huge buzzkill for his fantasy value and he failed to score again after hitting his first four shots of the game. Rondo is coming off a triple-double against the Warriors on Saturday, so he deserves a pass here. With Darren Collison (hamstring) on the shelf, Rondo is poised to play some heavy minutes in the coming days.
Nov 10 - 1:00 AM

It was a good day for Rajon Rondo as he messed around and got a triple-double against the Warriors on Saturday, scoring 14 points with 12 rebounds, 15 assists, four steals and three turnovers in 44 minutes.

Needless to say, this is his best game in quite some time. The Kings are going to be without Darren Collison (hamstring) for a bit, so Rondo will be playing heavy minutes. Interestingly, Rondo didn't play in the final 17:26 on Friday during a close game. Regardless, he has to be in starting lineups after this one.
Nov 8 - 4:25 AM

Rajon Rondo scored 12 points on 6-of-14 shooting (no threes) with eight rebounds, five assists and three steals in Friday's home loss to the Rockets.

This qualifies as a good game for Rondo and it should keep him owned, but his impact on the offense for Sacramento hasn't been great and they keep losing games. This is probably his high water mark and owners will want to hope that things start to turnaround in Sacto.
Nov 7 - 2:59 AM

Rajon Rondo was disappointing in Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies, scoring five points with six boards, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

To make things worse, Rondo was 2-of-10 from the field and 1-of-4 from the free throw line, but his owners didn't draft him for his percentages. To be fair, the Kings looked out of sync with DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) in street clothes and Rondo has been playing really well prior to tonight's dud, so his owners should give him a break. He will look to bounce back vs. the Suns on Wednesday.
Nov 4 - 1:18 AM

Rajon Rondo said he's not worried about how he's perceived by the media.

While Rondo has earned his cantankerous reputation, he's not worried about how he's perceived. "The perception the media gave me, the character of the person they made me, whoever they made me out to be, that's their prerogative," Rondo said. "It doesn't affect me at all." Rondo's free throw shooting leaves a lot to be desired, but he's off to a strong start to the season and should be started in all fantasy leagues.
Nov 3 - 10:18 AM

Rajon Rondo backed up Friday's game with another nice performance, notching 21 points on 9-of-17 shooting, one 3-pointer, five boards, eight assists, two steals and one turnover in a tough loss to the Clippers.

We've been tracking Rondo's jump shot and tonight he was on, shooting 5-of-10 from beyond 15 feet. He was particularly effective from the right elbow, where he sank all three of his attempts, and he's showing signs of the Rondo we knew and loved with the Celtics. Free throws are still a big issue (2-of-6 tonight) and this is the first time he's exceeded 25 minutes this season, but owners can at least be satisfied with the early returns.
Nov 1 - 1:31 AM

Rajon Rondo was the teacher and the Lakers' young backcourt were the students in Friday's blowout win, as Rondo finished with 21 points on 9-of-13 shooting, three rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

This one has to be taken with a grain of salt because any team with fatal failures on defense is going to be picked apart by Rondo. When the Clippers' Chris Paul and Co. packed it in and doubled off him, the Kings offense fell apart and that's going to be a more likely result against good teams. Owners should wait and see how he does against the Clippers on Saturday before making a pickup.
