Jared Dudley played just 13 minutes in Saturday's blowout loss to the Warriors, hitting 1-of-4 shots for two points, two rebounds and one assist.
This was basically his worst game of the season and a little surprising, as he had 17 points and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday. The lopsided score had a lot to do with it, but the bottom line is that Dudley has been maddeningly inconsistent this season. We'd rather own P.J. Tucker. Dec 4 - 1:48 AM

Jared Dudley (foot) returned vs. the Hawks on Wednesday, scoring 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting with three 3-pointers, two rebounds, two steals and one assist.

Dudley missed Sunday's game but it looks like a minor ailment that won't limit him going forward. Phoenix relies on two-point field goals for 60.0 percent of their scoring (sixth-highest in the league), but three-point shots account for just 20.7 percent of their scoring (third-lowest in the league). Dudley's shooting should be critical, in other words, but he's a borderline option in most leagues while Devin Booker and P.J. Tucker are healthy.
Dec 1 - 1:53 AM

Jared Dudley (foot) will be available to play Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

Dudley missed Sunday's game due to soreness on the ball of his left foot, but he was back at practice on Tuesday and should step right back into his 25-minute reserve role tonight. With Dudley active, P.J. Tucker's minutes will likely fall closer to the 30-minute mark.
Nov 30 - 1:50 PM

Jared Dudley (left foot) will not play on Sunday vs. the Nuggets.

The severity is not known, but the injury leaves the Suns shorthanded at forward with T.J. Warren (head) out for a while. P.J. Tucker and Dragan Bender should both see an uptick in minutes off the bench, but neither player is worth adding in standard leagues.
Nov 27 - 1:54 PM

Jared Dudley hit 3-of-9 shots and zero 3-pointers for six points, five rebounds and four assists in 27 minutes of Monday's 106-101 loss to the Wizards.

Dudley's had some nice games this season, but he's also had some bad ones. He's scored seven or fewer points in three of his last four games, and while there's some intrigue in owning Dudley, there might be better options on your waiver wire. He has just four blocks and four steals over his last 10 games, hasn't blocked a shot in 12 of his 15 games this season, and didn't hit a 3-pointer tonight for the first time in six games.
Nov 21 - 10:29 PM

Jared Dudley was hot off the bench against the Pacers on Friday, scoring 16 points with five rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

The Suns talked about speeding up the process on their young guys, but it's been Dudley going off night after night. In his last five games, Dudley averaged 14.4 points, 4.2 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.4 steals, 0.4 blocks and 2.8 treys on 56.8 percent from the field. He'll eventually lose minutes, but he is absolutely rolling for anyone needing a boost for the next month or so.
Nov 18 - 10:05 PM

Jared Dudley kept up his torrid bench play on Sunday, hitting 5-of-9 shots with three 3-pointers for 14 points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal and one turnover in 31 minutes.

Defense has been the Suns' undoing this season and they didn't re-write the script tonight, allowing 133 points to the Warriors' potent offense. Phoenix is just 1-3 since Dudley shifted to the second unit in favor of Marquese Chriss, but the move is likely to stick. Fantasy owners might as well ride Dudley until he cools off.
Nov 13 - 10:46 PM

Jared Dudley scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists, one turnover and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes during a 122-104 loss to the Nets on Saturday.

That's two great ones from Dudley. The Nets really put a lot of pressure on the strong side of the halfcourt plays, which opened up some shots for Dudley. He's already said the Suns will speed up the process on Marquese Chriss, so it's tough to get excited about his short-term value. If you want to ride him while he's hot, go for it.
Nov 13 - 2:20 AM

Jared Dudley had multiple season-highs with 19 points and 30 minutes against the Pistons on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, one assist, two blocks, one steal and four 3-pointers.

He was on fire in the first half with 16 points, so that explains the bump in minutes. Dudley was shifted to the bench for Tuesday's game and he'll continue to fill that roll for the foreseeable future. There won't be enough upside to scoop him up in most leagues.
Nov 10 - 2:03 AM

Jared Dudley has been replaced in the Suns starting lineup by Marquese Chriss.

The move is not simply just for Tuesday night, but rather is being termed as "permanent." Dudley is currently averaging 6.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 23.3 minutes per game. He will likely still see around 20 minutes off the bench most nights, but it is safe to drop Dudley in most standard leagues.
Nov 8 - 5:31 PM

Jared Dudley played 20 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday with five points, two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

The Suns are really growing fond of their lineups with T.J. Warren and P.J. Tucker at the forward spots. It's tough to trust Dudley in most leagues right now.
Nov 5 - 12:08 AM

Jared Dudley scored 11 points with four rebounds, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes on Friday.

His minutes should be in the upper 20s to start the year while the Suns groom their two top-10 picks at power forward. If you want a little boost early in the season, Dudley could definitely be a top-150 player in the first two months of the season.
Oct 22 - 1:22 AM

Jared Dudley (right knee tendinitis) finished Wednesday's preseason game with two points, three boards, three assists, one steal and two turnovers.

The veteran played 15 minutes and the knee tendinitis that bothered him last week seems like a non-factor. He's worth a look in 16-team drafts.
Oct 13 - 12:21 AM

Jared Dudley (right knee tendinitis) won't play vs. the Jazz on Wednesday.

Dudley logged 23 minutes on Monday and this is likely just a precautionary rest day for the veteran. His absence opens up even more playing time for guys like T.J. Warren, Marquese Chriss, Dragan Bender and Alan Williams.
Oct 5 - 8:35 PM

Jared Dudley is expected to start at power forward on opening night.

This has been the story since they signed him back in July. Dudley isn't very big at 6'7", but he played the vast majority of his minutes at the four last season. He'll be a low-end pickup late in deeper drafts as a 3-pointers specialist.
