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.
Apr 7 - 12:15 AM

Corey Brewer started the second half against the Hornets on Saturday, finishing with 21 points, three rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes

The Rockets might be going back to their starting lineup with Brewer and shifting Ariza at the four because Donatas Motiejunas has looked really bad. Even in the starting lineup, Brewer averaged just 10.6 points, 2.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.1 treys in those 12. He's more of a deep-league pickup.
Mar 12 - 9:37 PM

Corey Brewer has gotten in the groove lately and has hit 25 of 48 shots in his last six games.

Fresh off one his his best games of the season on Sunday, Brewer said he's getting hot after putting up 23 points with five three-pointers against the Raptors. "Eventually, I'm going to get hot," Brewer said. "I get hot every season. I'm glad it's right now. I got hot at the right time." While Brewer is capable of a big game now and then, his fantasy value is limited to deep leagues as he's too streaky to rely on in standard leagues.
Mar 8 - 9:31 AM

Corey Brewer moved back to the bench on Friday with two points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 21 minutes against the Suns.

He didn't have much value in the starting lineup and he lost some here. There was no reason to add Brewer in most leagues in the first place.
Feb 20 - 1:44 AM

Corey Brewer could come off the bench against the Suns on Friday.

The Rockets losing Marcus Thornton takes away some depth on the wing off the bench, so slotting Brewer in the second unit makes sense. Regardless, Brewer can stay on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 19 - 3:25 PM

Corey Brewer scored nine points on 3-of-9 shooting with five boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

His coach loves him and said that he's "disruptive" on the defensive end, but he really hasn't looked that good other than a 24-point outburst vs. the lowly Suns on Thursday. Brewer will be on the fantasy radar for any owner in need of steals or 3-pointers as long as he continues to start, but he's better suited for deeper leagues until further notice.
Feb 10 - 2:13 AM

Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that Corey Brewer is "disruptive" on the defensive end.

"He's disruptive," Bickerstaff said. "When he's able to get steals, that's when his offense starts. His offense starts on the defensive end of the court. It's a steal for us. It's a defensive rebound for us and then it's a quick outlet. When we're getting stops, that's when [Brewer] is at his best." Brewer scored 24 points against the Suns on Thursday and is still starting at small forward, but he was struggling prior to that game. Unless he does this again, he's better suited for deeper leagues.
Feb 6 - 10:57 AM

Corey Brewer scored a game-high 24 points against Suns on Thursday with one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

The Rockets scored 26 points in fast break, so that kind of output there is right up Brewer's alley. In his previous starts, Brewer only has averages of 9.6 points, 3.4 boards, 1.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 treys on 38.8 percent from the field. If you want to ride him while he's played better, hopefully you're not dropping anything of value. He's not an add in standard leagues yet.
