Jeff Green posted 13 points across 20 minutes off the bench in Friday's 97-95 loss at Indiana.
Green has been a bright spot in an otherwise dreary week for the Cavaliers, as he is averaging 16.0 points per contest during the current three-game losing skid. He is shooting 53.1 percent (17-of-32) while going a perfect 9-of-9 from the charity stripe over the past two outings. He remains rather useful in deeper fantasy formats, and right now he isn't a bad low-end DFS play while running relatively hot. Jan 12 - 10:16 PM

Jeff Green scored 22 points on 9-of-15 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and three triples in 27 minutes on Monday vs. Minnesota.

This was his third game of the season with at least 22 points, but he scored eight of his points in garbage time. This was a total blowout, so there's no need to read into this. At least he can tell his kids one day that he scored just as many points in a game as LeBron James (10), Isaiah Thomas (9) and Kevin Love (3) combined.
Jan 8 - 11:45 PM

Jeff Green finished with 22 points, five rebounds, two blocked shots and a steal across 27 minutes off the bench on Saturday in Utah.

Green was red hot off the bench, especially from the perimeter where he was 4-of-4 from behind the arc. That's nine games with double-digit point totals across 14 outings in the month of December, but this was easily his best game of the month. Every now and then he has a big scoring outing, but quickly fades back to low-end fantasy status. Don't get too excited unless he strings together a few performances like this. That's unlikely.
Sat, Dec 30, 2017 11:16:00 PM

Jeff Green finished with 11 points, four assists and a rebound over 17 minutes in Saturday's win against Utah.

Green was a very efficient 3-of-4 from the field, including 3-of-3 from behind the 3-point line, while turning it over just once and finishing with a team-high plus-18 rating. He is having his best month of the season, averaging 12.0 points per game across eight outings in December. Green is someone to rely upon on a regular basis in fantasy leagues, but if you need an emergency injury replacement you can certainly do worse.

Jeff Green had 17 points, three rebounds and one assist on 7-of-12 shooting in 26 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Hawks.

Green is now averaging 13.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.6 3-pointers on 59 percent shooting over his last five games. And with four games this week and him being available in most leagues, he appears to have been a decent pick-and-play this week. He's not a must-own player, especially given his lack of threes, steals and blocks, but if you need a warm body to plug into an injury-riddled lineup, he might fit the bill.

Jeff Green finished with 13 points, six rebounds, two steals and an assist over 30 minutes in Saturday's win against Philadelphia.

Green didn't start, even with Kevin Love sidelined, but he was in the starting five heading out of halftime with Ante Zizic doing nothing in his five minutes. Green finished with a team-high plus-25 rating, turning it over just twice while hitting 5-of-8 from the field and 1-of-1 from behind the 3-point line. He continues to give fantasy owners in deeper leagues pretty decent production.

Jeff Green sank 6-of-8 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws en route to 17 points on Wednesday, adding three boards, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer.

Kyle Korver also got hot late, hitting three straight triples to reclaim the lead in the fourth quarter, and he finished with 15 points, three rebounds and two assists. Both backups have been hovering at the edges of fantasy value, especially Korver as a 3-point specialist, and their minutes should be steady until Iman Shumpert (knee) gets back.
Wed, Dec 6, 2017 10:09:00 PM

Jeff Green played 25 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 14 points, eight rebounds and two assists in Monday's win over the Bulls.

Green is getting run with Iman Shumpert out and is averaging 11 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.6 blocks and shooting 51 percent over his last five. He's not a must-own player, and tends to alternate good nights with slow ones, but he might be able to help your team with three more games this week.

Jeff Green started the second half of Thursday's win over the Hawks, scoring 12 points on 4-of-9 shots with three boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 19 minutes.

Green replaced Jose Calderon who was struggling defensively, but it's not a permanent switch by any means. Green has played really well in the second unit and he's on pace to shoot a career-high from the field, but his minutes could take a hit with Tristan Thompson (calf) due back next week. For that reason, he's a deep-league asset in fantasy leagues.

Jeff Green started the second half of Thursday's game vs. the Hawks over Jose Calderon.

Calderon couldn't stay in front of Dennis Schroder, so the move is matchup related. Green has been really efficient from the field this season, but he doesn't play enough to help most fantasy owners.
Thu, Nov 30, 2017 08:55:00 PM

Jeff Green played 27 minutes and hit 6-of-12 shots for 14 points, a season-high 10 rebounds, three assists and a block in Monday's easy win over the Sixers.

This was his first double-double of the season and while he's not someone who can be counted on in fantasy, he has had some good games. He got some solid garbage-time run tonight, but if the Cavs decide to bench some stars in Tuesday's back-to-back against the Heat, Green could be a very sneaky play in that one, especially in DFS.
Mon, Nov 27, 2017 09:53:00 PM

Jeff Green scored 27 points with five rebounds, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Rockers on Thursday.

He has been a difference maker all season and is fitting in nicely as the main option in the second unit. Although, Green has been marvelous next to LeBron James with his 68.1 TS% in those 100 minutes, which blows away the 52.3 TS% in the 159 minutes without James. Green scored just 20 points combined over his last three games, so this game was more about the matchup and him playing extremely well. He's not really worth owning in standard leagues just yet.
Thu, Nov 9, 2017 11:25:00 PM

Jeff Green scored 15 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He's probably going to be looking at more minutes with Tristan Thompson out, and really something has to change with this rotation. Green still hasn't been a great per-minute guy in standard leagues, so there's no reason to add him unless he starts heating up.
Wed, Nov 1, 2017 09:29:00 PM

Jeff Green scored seven points with two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 16 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

As expected, the return of Dwyane Wade (knee) caused Green to lose a lot of playing time. He was very effective with Wade on the shelf and could re-emerge, but his fantasy owners should be looking for greener pastures at the end of their bench. Danny or JaMychal Green?

Jeff Green scored 18 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.

With LeBron James logging minutes at the point, there have been some minutes available at the forward spots. Green has also benefitted from Dwyane Wade not playing tonight, but Wade and Derrick Rose figure to be back soon. Green's upside beyond this weekend may not be there.
