Corey Brewer played 13 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday with two points, one assist, one steal and one turnover.
Trevor Ariza (back) was hurt in this game, which could help Brewer. He's really fallen down in the wing pecking order, but coach Mike D'Antoni may opt to go with Brewer in the first unit to keep some continuity. Just keep an eye on Brewer with his low upside. Dec 3 - 2:33 AM

Date:

Corey Brewer will come off the bench on Monday vs. the 76ers.

With Patrick Beverley (knee) targeting a return on Wednesday, Brewer could lose some minutes in the coming weeks. He's averaging 15.3 minutes per game this season and doesn't belong on fantasy rosters.
Nov 14 - 6:23 PM

Corey Brewer started again on Saturday and missed all three of his shots and failed to score in just 16 minutes.

Once Patrick Beverley is back, which should be soon, Brewer will go back to the bench and will be irrelevant, while James Harden and Tyler Ennis will also see less minutes. Harden is good to go, but if you've somehow been playing Brewer or Ty Ennis, it's time to start making alternative plans.
Nov 13 - 1:11 AM

Corey Brewer started at SG again on Wednesday but went scoreless on 0-of-5 shooting with two boards and one assist in 14 minutes.

It's anyone's guess how long Brewer will continue to start, especially with Pat Beverley (knee surgery) aiming to return in late November. Considering his averages in two starts (2.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists and zero defensive stats) he's clearly not an intriguing pickup.
Nov 10 - 12:24 AM

Corey Brewer will start at SG again on Wednesday, with Eric Gordon coming off the bench.

The move brings more defense to the starting lineup, while giving more offensive firepower to the second unit. There's still no reason to own Brewer in standard leagues.
Nov 9 - 8:06 PM

Corey Brewer started over Eric Gordon on Monday for matchup reasons and and had four points, three boards and one assist in just 16 minutes.

He was in the starting five to play defense, while Gordon got 32 minutes off the bench and hit 4-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 11 points, a steal and a block. Starting or not, Gordon is the player to own here, and he should be back in the starting unit sooner than later.
Nov 7 - 9:46 PM

Corey Brewer will replace Eric Gordon in the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Wizards.

It's a matchup-based move, as the Rockets want Brewer to start out guarding John Wall. Brewer was only averaging 15.2 minutes per game prior to Monday and could return to the bench next time out, so there's no reason to consider an add outside of deeper leagues. Gordon will be fine.
Nov 7 - 11:00 AM

Corey Brewer played only 14 minutes off the bench vs. New York on Tuesday, but he still racked up eight points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Fellow reserve swingman K.J. McDaniels was also impressive, pitching in nine points, three boards, two blocks, one steal and a few highlight-reel dunks. Brewer's fantasy limitations are well known, and he's unlikely to help standard-league owners while Eric Gordon and Trevor Ariza are healthy.
Oct 4 - 10:43 PM

Corey Brewer played 10 minutes with two points and one assist against the Warriors on Monday.

He probably shouldn't have played at all. The Rockets just aren't having success with their small lineups these days. Brewer is not a fantasy option anymore.
Apr 19 - 1:30 AM

Corey Brewer made 1-of-8 from the field for three points with five rebounds, six assists, one block and two turnovers against the Warriors on Saturday.

He is in some kind of funk. Including the regular season, Brewer hasn't made any of his last 20 attempts from deep dating back to Mar. 26. The Brewer lineups actually weren't too bad in this game, but he didn't help himself for minutes going forward. He's still in play as a punt in DFS.
Apr 16 - 6:24 PM

Corey Brewer will start at small forward and Trevor Ariza will move to power forward on Saturday.

The Rockets will go small out of the gate with the Warriors starting big. They actually had some success with their big lineup of Clint Capela at the four this year, so that will be interesting. Brewer might play minutes in the mid 20s and he's a fine punt in DFS.
Apr 16 - 3:21 PM

Corey Brewer played 15 minutes against the Wolves on Monday with two points, one rebound, four assists, two steals and one block.

He had an arm injury and wore a sleeve. Brewer hasn't played well lately, but coach J.B. Bickerstaff trusts him probably more than he should. Brewer isn't a great fantasy option.
Apr 12 - 12:16 AM

Corey Brewer (arm) will play on Monday against the Wolves.

He has a sleeve on his right arm and he is good to go. Brewer has not played well at all, so he's not a fantasy option right now.
Apr 11 - 6:41 PM

Corey Brewer (right arm contusion) is questionable for Monday's game against the Wolves.

He might not get his revenge game after likely suffering the injury on Monday with just nine minutes. If Brewer can't go, his minutes will likely be split up among Patrick Beverley, Michael Beasley and Donatas Motiejunas.
Apr 11 - 3:54 PM

Corey Brewer made 1-of-9 from the field for four points with three rebounds and one turnover in 23 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.

If Rockets fans want to nitpick on mistakes from coach J.B. Bickerstaff tonight, they can start with Brewer playing too much. He didn't have it and took too many shots. He's not worth owning almost anywhere.
