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.
Feb 5 - 12:15 AM

Corey Brewer scored 17 points with two rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes against the Thunder on Friday.

The scoring is nice and all, but this wasn't a great line. Brewer doesn't gain too much value in the starting lineup and he's more of a 16-team guy.
Jan 30 - 12:14 AM

Corey Brewer is starting again on Friday against the Thunder.

The Rockets are going small again, so that means Trevor Ariza will probably have to guard Serge Ibaka. Brewer may have to guard Kevin Durant, so that'll be fun for him. This lineup also helps Josh Smith and really hurts Clint Capela, who played just 0.1 minutes next to Dwight Howard on Wednesday.
Jan 29 - 6:51 PM

Corey Brewer scored eight points with one rebound and one 3-pointer in 14 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.

He probably won't stick in the starting lineup for long. Regardless, Brewer scores 33 percent of his points in fast break, so he's going to be extremely inconsistent due to nothing being drawn up for him. Even if he does keep his job, leave him on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 28 - 12:06 AM

Corey Brewer started again on Sunday and produced 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting to go with three assists, one rebound, one block and four steals through 27 minutes of action.

Brewer has benefitted from the Rockets' small-ball ways over the past two games with Dwight Howard (back) sidelined, but he could find himself back on the bench as soon as Monday's game vs. the Pelicans with Howard being listed as day-to-day. Brewer isn't anything more than a steals specialist in deep leagues.
Jan 24 - 6:47 PM

Corey Brewer scored four points in a start with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and two turnovers in 32 minutes against the Bucks on Friday.

The move of putting Brewer in the starting lineup is likely matchup-based, so he's still might move back to the bench. Even if he starts, Brewer isn't a fantasy asset unless he's on one of his patented heaters. He obviously is not right now.
Jan 23 - 1:24 AM

Corey Brewer and Jason Terry will start against the Bucks on Friday.

They will join James Harden, Trevor Ariza and Clint Capela in the first unit. The Rockets are getting beat up in the paint lately, so it's very odd to go small against the Bucks. Brewer is not a great pickup here.
Jan 22 - 7:43 PM

Corey Brewer played 19 minutes and hit 4-of-10 shots for 11 points, two rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer in Saturday's loss.

Brewer's minutes are just not there and he's been brutal lately, averaging just 5.6 points in 16 minutes over his last five games. You've got to be in a very deep league to be rostering Brewer right now, and in an even deeper league to actually be using him.
Jan 3 - 12:39 AM

Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff is a big fan of Corey Brewer's and believes he will snap out his shooting slump soon.

"I love Brew. I had him in Minnesota when we drafted him, and he is a champion," Bickerstaff said. "People may see his game is kind of awkward. If you were teaching your kid how to play, you could never in a thousand years teach your kid how to play the way he plays." Brewer is shooting just 25.9 percent from the field over his last five games, but he will look to get back on track vs. the Spurs on Friday.

The Rockets could trade Corey Brewer to the Suns after Jan. 15, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Because Brewer just signed a deal this summer, he can't be traded until that date. He didn't have much value to begin with anyway, so he's not a very intriguing stash.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 03:33:00 PM

Corey Brewer returned to the bench for Saturday's game vs. the Lakers and scored seven points in 17 minutes.

He also added four assists, two boards, four steals, one block and two 3-pointers, so he certainly made the most of his playing time. Brewer's production will be inconsistent while the Rockets are at full strength, so he's only worth owning in deeper leagues at the moment.
Sat, Dec 12, 2015 11:09:00 PM

Corey Brewer will come off the bench on Saturday vs. the Lakers.

Trevor Ariza (back) will return to the starting lineup, so there are no surprises here. Brewer's owners should think about moving on.
Sat, Dec 12, 2015 08:08:00 PM

Corey Brewer (personal) missed practice and is expected to play on Saturday against the Lakers.

He'll have a good chance to start and build off his 15-point game on Wednesday. Brewer's value for this game will depend on Trevor Ariza's availability.
