Jared Dudley said he could envision himself playing for the Utah Jazz.
Dudley responded to a fan's tweet asking if Utah was a possibility for the unrestricted free agent and the 30-year-old responded by saying he could see that happening. Dudley is far from a fantasy star, but the Jazz have minutes open at the wing position and he could be a sneaky late-round option if he signs in Utah. Jun 21 - 12:01 PM

Jared Dudley said he doesn't see Kevin Durant joining the Wizards next season.

"I realistically don’t," Dudley said. "I hope for the fans they do, because he’s from there, and he would bring such excitement. They’d be right behind Cleveland, right there with them to be able to contend. I don’t see it though." Dudley hasn't been shy about comments in his career, but he's probably right on this one.

Jared Dudley is hoping for a three-year deal in free agency this summer and is open to returning to the Wizards.

"Going forward, I could definitely see me coming back," Dudley said. "As I told some other reporters, I’m never anybody’s first or second or third option, I’m your fourth option. So if you don’t get your girlfriend you want right away, I’m the one at the end. For me, it’s no problem. You know what I can do in this system. When I play, I play the right way." Dudley had a solid season in Washington with averages of 7.9 points, 3.5 boards, 2.1 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.2 3-pointers, and he should get a decent raise this summer with the salary cap expected to expand.

Jared Dudley is open to returning to the Washington Wizards.

Dudley didn't want to return if Randy Wittman was still the head coach, but Dudley can now consider returning to Washington with Wittman being relieved of his duties. While Dudley will likely seek long-term security on the open market, we could see him back in Washington as a fantasy option in deeper leagues.
Apr 14 - 9:23 AM

Jared Dudley scored eight points in a start against the Nets on Monday with six rebounds, five assists, one steal and no turnovers.

It wasn't a big scoring line for Dudley with Markieff Morris (rest) out, but he filled it up in the other areas. He's not really worth using in the finale with several other better options.
Apr 11 - 11:12 PM

Jared Dudley and Marcus Thornton will start on Monday vs. the Nets.

Markieff Morris (rest) will not play and Nene (rest) might not play as well, so the Wizards may need Dudley to play big minutes tonight. He's worth a look if you're targeting 3-pointers or if you're trying to save some money in DFS.
Apr 11 - 7:19 PM

Jared Dudley scored 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting Sunday, to go with seven rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer, four steals, two blocks and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

Over the past seven games, Dudley had only been earning 13.9 minutes a night, but he saw some increased opportunity with Bradley Beal (pelvis) taking an early seat on the sidelines. If Beal can't play on Monday vs. the Nets, which seems like a likely scenario, Dudley could earn meaningful minutes in the rotation. However, he often struggles with consistency, so Dudley can only be considered a low-end target in deep leagues.
Apr 10 - 5:40 PM

Jared Dudley didn't score in 11 minutes off the bench on Sunday, finishing with just one rebound, two assists and two personal fouls to his credit.

Dudley was surprisingly quiet given the absence of Markieff Morris (calf), but the Wizards turned to Nene and J.J. Hickson tonight. This was an essential win to keep the Wizards' playoff hopes alive, as it moves them within 2.5 games of the idle Pistons for the No. 8 seed. They have a steep climb to make the cut, especially with the No. 9 seed Bulls also ahead of them, and it's doubtful that Dudley will be a fantasy asset down the stretch.
Mar 28 - 12:03 AM

Jared Dudley scored 16 points off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Blazers with five boards, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

Bradley Beal (sprained pelvis) was out, Otto Porter was playing poorly and Markieff Morris got into some foul trouble, so Dudley had to step up for the Wizards. This was his first good game in a while and he's only been getting minutes in the teens recently, so most owners can use a wait-and-see approach here.
Mar 9 - 1:42 AM

Jared Dudley did not score in 15 minutes against the Cavs on Friday with two rebounds and one turnover.

It looks like it's time to cut him in fantasy now. Dudley had a really nice run after the Markieff Morris trade, but his chance to keep his minutes may have passed.
Mar 4 - 11:58 PM

Jared Dudley played just 12 minutes off the bench on Monday with four points, four boards, one assist and one 3-pointer against the 76ers.

It was by far his worst game since the Markieff Morris trade. It looked like the Wizards were going to have Dudley split minutes with Morris, but maybe Dudley only gets minutes in the teens. He's not quite worth holding in standard leagues.
Feb 29 - 10:13 PM

Jared Dudley will come off the bench on Monday vs. the 76ers.

The Wizards will go with Markieff Morris in the first unit tonight. Dudley has been benched at halftime recently in favor of Morris, so it's possible that this could be a permanent move. Dudley's fantasy value is trending in the wrong direction.
Feb 29 - 6:28 PM

Jared Dudley scored eight points on 3-of-6 shooting on Sunday, to go with four boards, two 3-pointers, two assists and zero turnovers in 22 minutes of action.

Dudley again came off the bench behind Markieff Morris to begin the second half, but Morris did little to separate himself from Dudley during his time on the court, registering a meager nine points through 21 minutes of play. Dudley has a much better concept of what head coach Randy Wittman would like to do, and he's been far more effective for the Wizards than Morris, so his minutes should be relatively safe moving forward. He's worth hanging onto if you own him.
Feb 28 - 6:11 PM

Jared Dudley did come off the bench in the second half on Friday, finishing with 14 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers.

This man does not want to give up minutes to his new/old teammate Markieff Morris. Dudley has played some of his best ball since the deadline and maybe he can hold value after all. His value is volatile, but feel free to give him a look to see if the added motivation can keep him hot.
Feb 26 - 9:52 PM

Jared Dudley hit 6-of-11 shots and 6-of-10 3-pointers for 18 points, four rebounds, five assists and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Pelicans.

Dudley has scored 18, 16 and 10 points in each of his last three games with seven 3-pointers. He could head to the bench once Markieff Morris joins the starting lineup, but until it happens, Dudley looks like a decent fantasy option.
