Aaron Brooks scored 21 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 8-of-13 shots (including three treys) with two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes.
Brooks has flown under the radar and now has a month of top-100 value under his belt. During that 17-game span he has averaged 12.5 points, 2.1 threes, 2.2 boards, 2.2 assists with 1.0 combined steals and blocks. He's shooting a bit high at 44.7 percent in that span, but that's his field goal percentage for the year (41.7 percent career). His role seems tenuous and things could change, but those numbers are worthy of a pickup. Jan 31 - 2:45 AM

Aaron Brooks was ejected in double-overtime against the Lakers on Thursday, finishing with 15 points, one rebound, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

Coach Tom Thibodeau hasn't been bashful about using two-PG lineups and Brooks has played well next to Derrick Rose. Brooks' fantasy value will take a hit once Mike Dunleavy (ankle) comes back, so he's not really a great pickup right now. Although, that could change if Derrick Rose's minor injury becomes something.
Jan 30 - 1:34 AM

Aaron Brooks was a lone bright spot off the Bulls bench on Sunday, scoring 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting, to go with two rebounds, four 3-pointers, one steal, and two turnovers.

This is pretty much what you get with Brooks, some scoring, some 3-pointers, and not much else. His value will likely take a hit when Mike Dunleavy eventually returns to the lineup, but until that happens, he'll be able to post some low-end value in deeper leagues.
Jan 25 - 7:03 PM

Aaron Brooks scored 13 points with three rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes on Saturday.

His minutes are likely going to take a minor dip with Mike Dunleavy getting closer to a return. Brooks will have a tough time putting up consistent value in standard leagues while Derrick Rose is healthy.
Jan 17 - 11:21 PM

Aaron Brooks scored just two points on Monday, hitting 1-of-3 shots with four assists and one steal in 15 minutes.

When the Bulls are close to full strength, it's going to be hard to rely on Brooks for consistent fantasy value.
Jan 6 - 12:35 AM

Aaron Brooks scored 19 points against the Celtics on Saturday with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He had a whopping 15 shots in 20 minutes and continues to carry the bench. Brooks could flirt with scoring in the low teens while Mike Dunleavy (ankle) is out, but his upside isn't quite as strong as Nikola Mirotic's.
Jan 4 - 12:17 AM

Aaron Brooks played 23 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday with 12 points, four rebounds, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

His minutes didn't really take a hit even with Kirk Hinrich back because the Bulls shifted Jimmy Butler more to the three today. Brooks is still not going to be a consistent guy to trust in standard leagues.
Jan 1 - 10:48 PM

Aaron Brooks was ejected from Tuesday's game after receiving two technical fouls for arguing with the officials, finishing with four points on 1-of-2 shooting in seven minutes.

Brooks was clearly heated at the officials and even approached one of them after his first technical. The Bulls were already missing Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) for this contest, so now it will be up to E'Twaun Moore to lead the second unit.

Aaron Brooks scored just two points with one rebound, two assists, one steal and four turnovers against the Pacers on Monday.

Ouch. Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) is very close to a return and this dud from Brooks suggests Hinrich will be active for Tuesday against Brooklyn. If you own Brooks, you might want to start planning on looking for someone else.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 10:15:00 PM

Aaron Brooks scored 13 points with four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

He made 5-of-14 from the field and continues to get a ton of shots in the second unit. Brooks should put up decent value while Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) is out.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 11:08:00 PM

Aaron Brooks played 28 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday with 13 points, two rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer.

He played a handful of minutes next to Derrick Rose tonight and coach Tom Thibodeau is one of Brooks' biggest fans. As long as Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) is out, Brooks should put up enough value to be worth holding in standard leagues.
Thu, Dec 25, 2014 11:21:00 PM

Aaron Brooks took advantage of Kirk Hinrich's absence on Tuesday, coming off the bench for 13 points, four rebounds, six assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 26 minutes.

Hinrich (hamstring) is questionable to return for Chicago's game on Christmas Day, leaving the door open for Brooks to post another fantasy-worthy line. Owners should keep an eye on the Bulls' injury report, with the understanding that Brooks' value will fade as quickly as it appeared.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 09:40:00 PM

Aaron Brooks scored 17 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 6-of-10 shots (including a three) with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes.

If Kirk Hinrich's hamstring injury keeps him out then Brooks could have some low-end value best suited for deeper leagues.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 12:43:00 AM

Aaron Brooks scored 17 points in a 103-97 win at Memphis on Friday with one rebound, four assists, three 3-pointers and four turnovers.

He had three turnovers before scoring or handing out an assists and he really turned it on in the third quarter. Derrick Rose only has an illness, so he should be ready to roll on Monday. Brooks can be left on the wire.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 01:41:00 AM

Aaron Brooks played 25 minutes off the bench against the Knicks on Thursday with 18 points, two rebounds, five assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

Derrick Rose (illness) is not traveling with the Bulls for Friday, so chances are Brooks has another game ready to go on Friday. Although, it's not going to be as great of a matchup against the Grizzlies, but he's still worth a look for short-term value.
