D.J. Augustin played 28 minutes off the bench vs. L.A. on Sunday, scoring six points on 1-of-6 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs with a game-high eight assists, five rebounds and one 3-pointer.
The veteran logged more minutes than Elfrid Payton (nine points in 19 minutes) for the second straight game. He was a negligible fantasy option even while starting, and the past two games feel like 'hot hand' flukes, so we're not biting on D.J. as a fantasy pickup. Jan 9 - 1:37 AM

D.J. Augustin scored a team-high 19 points against the Rockets on Friday, adding one rebound, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

The bench role has been better for DJA, but this game is clearly a fluke. Augustin is not worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 6 - 9:42 PM

D.J. Augustin shifted to a bench role on Wednesday and had just six points, two rebounds and one assist in 13 minutes of action.

Augustin averaged 20.9 minutes as a starter and he was actually scoring more points (9.4) in fewer minutes (19.1) as a reserve earlier in the season. He should already be on the waiver wire in standard leagues, so this doesn't have a big impact.
Jan 4 - 10:13 PM

D.J. Augustin will move to the bench on Wednesday.

His playing time was really starting to drop with only 15.0 minutes per game over his last three. Augustin could see another drop, but he already lost most of his fantasy appeal before Christmas.
Jan 4 - 6:22 PM

D.J. Augustin was benched to begin the third quarter on Sunday, finishing a 117-104 road loss with five points, three assists and one steal in 15 minutes of action.

Augustin averaged just 23.1 minutes over the past month, despite his starting gig, so this isn't a big surprise. He's not worth owning in leagues with fewer than 16 teams, no matter where he begins Monday's game vs. the Knicks.
Jan 1 - 9:15 PM

D.J. Augustin did not score any points in 13 minutes on Sunday against the Raptors

It was the first time this season that Augustin did not score any points. He has been in the starting lineup and has been efficient at times, but has scored fewer than four points in three of his last four games. Elfrid Payton is playing much better than Augustin at this time, making Augustin lose the little fantasy value he had.

D.J. Augustin scored 17 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and two triples in 27 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

He's back from the dead after scoring a combined six points in his previous two games. Augustin hit 6-of-14 shots and 3-of-3 from the line, But Elfrid Payton is still breathing down his neck and had 10 points, five assists and six rebounds in 21 minutes. This was Augustin's first sign of life in over a week and Payton has been outplaying him, so he's a low-end asset to own going forward.

D.J. Augustin scored nine points with three rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

His time in the starting lineup hasn't gone too well, averaging 8.5 points, 2.5 boards, 4.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.8 treys on 48.0 percent from the field in his last four starts. Augustin isn't really handling the ball too much next to Evan Fournier and he only has a 15.7 usage rate. He's only worth a look for PG-needy owners.

D.J. Augustin played just 19 minutes on Thursday, hitting 2-of-6 shots and two 3-pointers for seven points, two assists and a steal.

Yuck. He started, but Elfrid Payton played 29 minutes off the bench. DJA had been playing pretty well and the reliance on Payton in the fourth quarter cost the Magic tonight, as they blew a 14-point lead and Payton gave up a late steal to JaMychal Green to seal their fate. And given how this one ended, new owners of DJA should probably hang on for another game to see if he starts and how much he plays, as Payton may be back in the doghouse. Unless you can pick up Andrew Harrison.
Fri, Dec 2, 2016 12:26:00 AM

D.J. Augustin, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Serge Ibaka and Bismack Biyombo will start against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

The Magic will stick with the same lineup. They had some success with it against the Spurs on Tuesday with Augustin and Elfrid Payton basically splitting the point guard minutes down the middle -- DJA played 25 minutes and Payton played 23. Augustin is worth a look for owners needing a point guard, but his ceiling isn't great.
Thu, Dec 1, 2016 06:48:00 PM

D.J. Augustin scored seven points with five assists, four rebounds, two steals, one triple and one turnover in 25 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Spurs.

Making his second straight start for the Magic, Augustin shot 2-of-6 from the field and closed out the game over Elfrid Payton (ankle). Payton could actually end up missing time even though X-rays were negative, so Augustin is on the radar as a sneaky pickup for owners in need of a PG.
Tue, Nov 29, 2016 11:40:00 PM

D.J. Augustin will remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

Augustin started on Sunday, but only played 25 minutes on his way to 11 points, five assists, one 3-pointer and two boards while Elfrid Payton logged 29 minutes off the bench and put up 16 points, three boards, three dimes, one triple, one steal and three turnovers. This is starting to feel like a value killing timeshare situation, and while DJA can bury those triples, his lack of contributions on the defensive end keeps him out of the standard league equation. Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Serge Ibaka and Bismack Biyombo will join Augustin in the starting five for tonight's game.

D.J. Augustin started at PG vs. the Bucks on Sunday and posted 11 points, five assists and two rebounds in 25 minutes, making 5-of-7 shots with one 3-pointer.

The veteran came in averaging 19.1 minutes per game and it's anyone's guess how long he'll keep the starting job ahead of Elfrid Payton. He was shooting below 40 percent on the season, with negligible rebounds or defensive stats, so he's just a speculative add in deeper leagues.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 09:58:00 PM

D.J. Augustin will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Bucks, sending Elfrid Payton to the bench.

Augustin has played well in limited minutes this season, while Payton has really struggled as a starter, and it's not clear if this is a matchup based decision or if Frank Vogel is ready to give the reins to DJA. Either way, Augustin could be viewed as a streamer option or DFS punt play tonight, while Payton can't be considered in daily leagues.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 05:22:00 PM

D.J. Augustin played 26 minutes against the Wizards on Friday with eight points, four rebounds and one 3-pointer.

He played next to Elfrid Payton during this game for four minutes, which is close to double their usual time together. Augustin doesn't really do much on the defensive side with one of the lowest block rates in NBA history, so he'll likely need a larger role to have value in standard leagues.
