Jeff Green scored 16 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 7-of-12 shots (including two threes) with eight rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.
Tony Allen got knocked out of the game with a hamstring injury and the rest of the backcourt isn't exactly a picture of health. Green's minutes become solidified if Allen misses any time and he might be in line for a few more touches too. He's on a bit of a hot streak with mid-round value over the last two weeks, but the Grizzlies' pair of three-game weeks offsets some of the buzz that might create. Give him a look with late-round expectations. Mar 28 - 2:08 AM

Jeff Green was terrific in the starting lineup against the Blazers on Saturday with 23 points, nine rebounds and five 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

He and Tony Allen picked up most of Courtney Lee's (hand) minutes. Green is going to move back to the bench once Lee gets healthy, but he still looked good on Friday with 15 points. Unless you were already eyeing him, Green isn't a great pickup in shallow leagues. He's worth a look if you need scoring, though.
Mar 21 - 11:37 PM

Jeff Green asked head coach Dave Joerger if he could come off the bench prior to Friday's game vs. the Mavericks.

The move certainly paid off for Green and he was really active with the second unit, scoring 15 points with three boards, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes. "The flow was there," Green said after their win over the Mavericks. "I’m going to end up playing with those guys in the starting unit anyway. But it’s good for myself because now I can be more aggressive. I don’t have to worry about getting Marc [Gasol] and Zach [Randolph] involved. By the time I get in they’ve already been involved. It’s on me to just go in be aggressive and try to score." Green will likely continue coming off the bench for the foreseeable future, and it looks like his value could actually be on the rise.

Jeff Green came off the bench against the Mavs on Friday with 15 points, three rebounds, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

It was a good game for him and he'll be able to do more on offense if he's getting more run with the second unit. This is another reminder that starting doesn't necessarily mean more fantasy value. Green will continue to be a low-end player to own going forward, but keep an eye on him to see if he plays well again on Saturday.
Mar 21 - 1:43 AM

Jeff Green, who played only 17 minutes on Monday, finished Tuesday's loss vs. the Pistons with a team-high 21 points (7-of-12 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), three 3-pointers, five rebounds and two steals in 33 minutes.

Green has found a bit of a groove from downtown since the All-Star break, which is terrific news for the perimeter-starved Grizzlies. They rank 22nd in 3-point percentage (33.3 percent) and they're 29th in both 3-pointers made (5.0) and attempted (15.1). Green has been on the verge of 12-team value for the past few weeks, so hopefully this will jumpstart him for the final stretch of the regular season.
Mar 17 - 10:16 PM

In advance of the Grizzlies game vs. the Celtics on Wednesday, Jeff Green said that he had no hard feelings towards his former team.

"It’s a business, it happens," Green said in regards to his trade. "I had speculation. I just went upon each day like I’m still a Celtic, like I gotta play hard every game." Green has averaged 12.5 points and 4.1 rebounds on 40 percent shooting with the Grizzlies, so while he isn't exactly a must-own player in fantasy leagues, Green has been much more valuable in real life. If you need help in scoring, rebounding and 3-pointers, Green is still worth a look, but expectations should be held in check.
Mar 11 - 9:45 AM

Jeff Green had another nice night against the Bulls on Monday, scoring 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting (including three treys) with seven rebounds and one steal.

Green scored 20 points on Saturday with a full line, but tonight's lack of defensive stats gives a better picture of his value. He has played above the cut line in 12-team formats for the last week but prior to that he has been a deep league guy, so plan accordingly.
Mar 10 - 12:00 AM

Jeff Green scored 20 points against the Pelicans on Saturday during a 95-89 loss with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

He was 8-of-18 from the field and his shots have increased a bunch lately, with at least 12 attempts from the field in each of his last four games. Green has made just 19-of-55 (34.5 percent) in that span, so it's hard to get excited about his increase in usage. He isn't a great player to own with his lack of defensive stats.
Mar 7 - 9:30 PM

Jeff Green scored just six points on 3-of-13 shooting in a loss to the Jazz on Tuesday, adding six boards, four assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes.

He is in the midst of a horrible slump, averaging 9.6 points, 4.4 boards and 2.6 assists while shooting just over 33 percent from the field over his last five games. It's pretty obvious that his departure from Boston was detrimental to his fantasy value, and he is going to be a tough player to own in most leagues moving forward.
Mar 3 - 11:20 PM

Jeff Green hit 5-of-12 shots with three treys in Monday's win, finishing with 16 points, six rebounds, two assists and a steal against the Clippers.

Green had a decent outing on Sunday but between that game and tonight's contest we're not seeing a major shift in value. With low upside owners can look at him as a potential short-term solution but expecting more is probably too optimistic.
Feb 24 - 1:34 AM

Jeff Green got going offensively vs. Portland, making 6-of-9 shots to finish Sunday's road victory with 12 points, five rebounds, one steal and zero turnovers in 25 minutes.

This is a mild relief for Green's fantasy owners, as he was shooting a mere 36.0 percent over his past eight games, averaging 11.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists with negligible defensive stats during that span. He's been a liability in 12-team leagues since joining the Grizzlies and this solid per-minute effort isn't enough to change the equation.
Feb 22 - 11:53 PM

Jeff Green had 11 points, six rebounds, one steal and one turnover on Sunday, while knocking down one 3-pointer in 26 minutes of action.

Green's real-world impact in Memphis has been far greater than his fantasy impact, and we're not expecting a renaissance in the Grizzlies' deliberate offense. He made 3-of-10 shots tonight without any assists or blocks, and he's been a standard-league liability over the past 20 games.
Feb 8 - 8:41 PM

Jeff Green posted an empty 15-point, three-rebound, two-assist line in Friday's loss to the Wolves.

Green hit just 5-of-13 shots, 5-of-9 free throws and didn't have any money counting stats. He's worth owning in 9-cat, 12-team leagues, but in 8-cat leagues owners probably want to slide that down to 14-team formats.
Feb 7 - 2:15 AM

Jeff Green scored 12 points including the game-winning bucket against the Suns on Monday, and also chipped in with seven rebounds and two steals in his 36 minutes.

Green hit 4-of-12 shots with one 3-pointer and got his game-winner on a fortunate rebound that quickly became an old fashioned 3-point play. Green's value is below the cut line in 12-team formats as a member of the Grizzlies, but owners might want to give it another week to see if he can finally gel. His upside isn't going to be great, however, so if a mid-to-high end free agent becomes available don't hesitate to make the move.
Feb 3 - 3:24 AM

Jeff Green finished Tuesday's win in Dallas with eight points on 3-of-7 FGs, five rebounds, two assists and zero steals, blocks or turnovers in 31 minutes.

Green has settled into a 30-minute role, even while starting, and the best news for fantasy owners is that he's lighting it up from beyond the arc -- over the Grizzlies' past three games he's a ridiculous 6-of-7 from deep. That efficiency won't last and he'll need to start contributing elsewhere to maintain his value, but for now he's worth starting in most formats.
