Mario Chalmers finished with six points in Saturday's game against the Rockets, his second game since moving into the starting five with Mike Conley (Achilles) injured.
Chalmers was just 1-of-7 from the floor, although he did salvage the line with eight assists, four rebounds and four steals across 29 minutes. He is 1-of-8 from behind the arc since moving into the starting lineup. Conley is just day-to-day, so Chalmers doesn't have much appeal outside of streaming, DFS and those in need of a cheap PG in deeper leagues. Nov 18 - 11:08 PM

Mario Chalmers started in place of Mike Conley (left Achilles) on Wednesday, notching eight points on 4-of-9 shooting, six assists and four rebounds.

He didn't have any defensive stats and went 0-of-4 from downtown -- in fact, he made just one field goal outside of the restricted area. Conley is day-to-day which limits Chalmers to streaming and DFS appeal, unless you need a cheap PG in a deep league.
Nov 15 - 11:29 PM

Mario Chalmers will start for Mike Conley (Achilles) against the Pacers on Wednesday.

Chalmers played 26 minutes in his previous start without Conley. Chalmers didn't shoot the ball well with his 3-of-12 shooting line, but he should get plenty of usage with 5-10 assists. Conley could miss additional time due to his Achilles, so picking up Chalmers isn't a bad idea in 12-team leagues.
Nov 15 - 6:42 PM

Mario Chalmers scored 14 points (3-of-4 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs) with six assists, five rebounds, one steal and one triple before fouling out in 25 minutes vs. the Bucks on Monday.

He gave the Grizzlies a nice spark on a night in which Mike Conley was held to seven points on 2-of-12 shooting. Conley hasn't looked right lately, so keep an eye on Chalmers if you need a PG.
Nov 13 - 11:58 PM

Mario Chalmers (knee) played 17 minutes vs. the Blazers on Tuesday with seven points, three rebounds, two assists and one triple.

He was probable with knee soreness, and he played a few less minutes than he normally does. The Grizzlies only have one more game this week and it's not until Saturday, so Chalmers is more of a deep-league handcuff for Mike Conley's owners. As for Conley, he scored 20 points with six assists, two steals and two triples in 31 minutes.
Nov 8 - 1:21 AM

Mario Chalmers (knee) will be available to play Tuesday vs. Portland.

Mike Conley is healthy, so Chalmers won't be receiving enough floor time to make an impact in most 12-team leagues. Leave him on the wire.
Nov 7 - 5:23 PM

Mario Chalmers (left knee) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers.

This is a new injury, but it sounds like it's just minor soreness. Chalmers is averaging 8.1 points, 3.5 assists, 2.5 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.7 triples this season and does have some low-end value, but the Grizzlies only have two games on the schedule this week.
Nov 6 - 7:58 PM

Mario Chalmers played 27 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday with 12 points, four rebounds, four assists, two steals and one turnover.

He played some key fourth quarter minutes and closed out this game. Chalmers was dreadful down the stretch as a starter on Wednesday, so coach David Fizdale trusting him here next to Mike Conley speaks volumes. With Conley dealing with an Achilles issue, it's very possible Rio gets another start in the next few weeks, including a possible back-to-back game on Sunday. He's a solid handcuff in 16-team leagues and has some standalone value, too.
Nov 4 - 6:47 PM

Mario Chalmers scored seven points during his start for Mike Conley (Achilles) against the Magic on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, five assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

He did not have a great finish to this game with a turnover and a missed three late. "I have to take control, run the team like Mike [Conley] runs the team and I didn't do that tonight," Chalmers said. Conley shouldn't be out for long, so Chalmers is only a speculative add in deeper leagues.
Nov 2 - 12:46 AM

Mario Chalmers, Andrew Harrison, James Ennis, Jarell Martin and Marc Gasol will start on Wednesday against the Magic.

Coach David Fizdale didn't want to break up his second unit, but he'll get Chalmers in there for his first start since his Achilles injury. He should be looking at close to 30 minutes tonight, so he'll be a solid DFS play or stream. Expect to see Harrison staggered at times to open up minutes on the wing, or Tyreke Evans may get some PG minutes.
Nov 1 - 7:50 PM

Mario Chalmers hit 6-of-10 field-goal attempts to finish with 15 poinds, four assists, two rebounds and two steals in 25 minutes off the bench Saturday against the Rockets.

Chalmers might have been affected a bit by his ankle injury in Friday's game, but he displayed no such problems in this performance. Still, until he continues to hit shots more consistently his fantasy appeal is limited to the deepest of leagues right now.
Oct 29 - 12:12 AM

Mario Chalmers missed all four shots against the Mavs on Thursday, adding two boards, six assists and one steal in 20 minutes.

While he was questionable for this game, Chalmers has struggled to score all season. He missed three shots from deep and one shot in the paint tonight. On the year, Chalmers ranks dead last among guards with at least 10 shots at the rim, making just 27.3 percent of those attempts. He isn't worth owning in most leagues right now.
Oct 26 - 11:10 PM

Mario Chalmers (ankle) is available to play tonight against the Mavs on Thursday.

He was a game-time call, but the team announces he'll be ready with an hour to spare. Chalmers is likely just going to get minutes behind Mike Conley tonight, so he may only be looking at 12-15 minutes. After a strong preseason, Chalmers has slowed down quite a bit during the regular season, making him a deep-league property to own right now.
Oct 26 - 6:55 PM

Mario Chalmers (right ankle) is questionable to face the Mavs on Thursday.

This is the same foot as his surgically-repaied Achilles, but it may not be related. If Chalmers does need to rest in this game, it makes sense to slide Andrew Harrison to the second unit and the Grizzlies could start Dillon Brooks. Tyreke Evans and James Ennis could also benefit as a result.
Oct 26 - 2:06 PM

Mario Chalmers (Achilles) looked great in Monday's preseason opener vs. the Magic, scoring a game-high 19 points with two assists, one rebound, one block and one triple in 20 minutes.

Playing in his first game since tearing his Achilles back in March of 2016, Chalmers looked spry and was easily one of the biggest surprises of the night. His contract for 2017-18 isn't even guaranteed, but now we know why coach David Fizdale said he will play a "big role." Expect him to make the team and open the season as Mike Conley's primary backup.
