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. Dec 2 - 10:23 PM

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.
Dec 2 - 12:26 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.
Dec 1 - 6:48 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.
Nov 29 - 11:40 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.
Nov 27 - 9:58 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.
Nov 27 - 5:22 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.
Nov 25 - 9:48 PM

D.J. Augustin closed out Saturday's 95-87 win over the Mavs, scoring 18 points with two rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

Coach Frank Vogel was planning on going with Elfrid Payton down the stretch, but DJA was just too hot. On top of Vogel having his back, Evan Fournier liked what he saw out of Augustin. "D.J.’s got to be aggressive like that every night," Fournier said. "That’s what we need from him coming off the bench. We need points. He’s a guard that can shoot." This is going to be a headache for owners in shallow leagues, so it may be best to sit this one out. If you need a guard in a 14-team league, give DJA a look.
Nov 20 - 1:17 AM

D.J. Augustin played 24 minutes off the bench against the Jazz on Friday, scoring a season-high 19 points with three assists and three 3-pointers.

He played the final 3:53 over Elfrid Payton and probably should've come in sooner. Augustin's 24 minutes were a season high and he could get more late run, especially with Payton having some inconsistency. Augustin is only a 16-team guy for now, but keep an eye on this.
Nov 11 - 9:47 PM

D.J. Augustin played 21 minutes off the bench and hit 5-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for 13 points, three assists and a steal on Saturday.

He scored a total of 10 points in his first two games, so tonight was easily a season high for DJA. He's going to hit some treys this season, but as long as the Magic starters are healthy (and they are), there's no need to get excited about this decent game from Augustin.
Oct 29 - 10:43 PM

D.J. Augustin (rest) will not play on Friday against the Pacers.

Elfrid Payton should get a few extra minutes. Augustin has played well for the Magic and he'll be a very important part of their second unit. When he's hot, it's not too wild to think he closes out games over Payton.
Oct 14 - 5:29 PM

D.J. Augustin earned his second straight start at PG for the Magic, finishing Wednesday's loss with six points (0-of-3 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs) and four assists in 18 minutes.

The veteran PG signed a four-year, $29 million deal this summer. He'll serve as Elfrid Payton's backup but has begun the preseason as a starter while Payton rehabs a strained left hip flexor. Augustin hasn't been a top-100 fantasy value since the 2010-11 season with Charlotte, which says plenty about his lack of appeal.
Oct 5 - 9:30 PM

D.J. Augustin's deal with the Magic is for $29 million over four years.

Augustin played well after a mid-season trade to the Nuggets, averaging 11.6 points, 4.7 assists, 1.9 boards, 0.9 steals and 1.6 3-pointers in 28 appearances. He will likely back up Elfrid Payton in Orlando, but his arrival should push C.J. Watson out of the rotation. Augustin is only on the radar in deeper fantasy leagues for now.
Jul 1 - 11:34 AM

D.J. Augustin has reached an agreement on a deal with the Magic.

The Magic get their backup point guard early. Augustin is actually a really nice complement to Elfrid Payton, making 40.5 percent from beyond the arc last season. The Magic could also use him in two-guard lineups. Augustin is still just 28 years old and should be looking at minutes close to 20. He's only an option in deeper fantasy leagues.
