Danny Green hit 7-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two steals in Wednesday's win.
With Manu Ginobili shelved with an ankle injury, there should be more where this came from Green going forward. If he's floating out there on your wire, pick him up. Just keep in mind that he had eight points in Tuesday's loss. Mar 19 - 12:18 AM

Danny Green knocked down three 3-pointers to finish Sunday's game with 13 points, two assists and one steal in a mere 15 minutes of action.

No Spurs player logged more than 25 minutes in tonight's blowout win. Green's low playing time could even prove to be beneficial next week, as Pop might be less inclined to bench him as a precaution. Green was averaging 11.9 points, 2.4 threes, 4.5 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 1.0 blocks over his previous 10 games, enough for steady top-40 value.

Danny Green put up a big stat line against the Cavs on Thursday with 24 points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals, four blocks and five 3-pointers.

That's a gigantic line, but it's nothing new. In fact, this was his third game this season with at least four threes and four blocks. The rest of the NBA only has two of those games (Kawhi Leonard and James Harden). Green hasn't quite been as hot as he was earlier, but he's really coming on strong. He should be starting in all leagues.

Danny Green was benched 35 seconds into Tuesday's game, but he quickly recovered to finish with 19 points on seven field goal attempts, five 3-pointers, six rebounds, two assists, one block and one turnover.

Gregg Popovich didn't hesitate to yank Green despite the absence of Manu Ginobili (illness) but fortunately the teaching moment had the desired effect and Green was locked in the rest of the way. He's averaging 2.0 threes, 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks over his past 10 games, to go along with solid percentages and a trickle of across-the-board stats. It's enough for top-50 value in all formats and he's a terrific player to own with 16 games on tap over the next four weeks.
Mar 10 - 11:14 PM

Danny Green posted his standard all-around stat line during Sunday's win over the Bulls, scoring 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting to go with three 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist, two steals, and two blocks over 25 minutes of action.

Green's numbers don't often jump off the page, but his steady contributions to 3-pointers (2.3), steals (1.3), and particularly blocks (1.1) have him turning in early-round value on the season. Green hit a rough shooting slump during the month of February, but so far he's shooting 45.8 percent from the field during the month of March, so it appears that his slump is behind him.
Mar 8 - 3:44 PM

Danny Green is averaging just 8.7 points, 5.5 boards, 0.5 assists, 0.3 blocks, 0.7 steals and 1.3 treys in 22.7 minutes during his six second-half games this season.

Besides the rebounds, all of those numbers are considerably down from his pre-break numbers. Green was one of the biggest fantasy steals in the first half, but he was one of the bigger roller-coaster rides of the 2013-14 season. Still, he is worth owning in all leagues and he should be fine. If your trade deadline hasn't passed, try to buy low.
Mar 1 - 10:30 AM

Danny Green was quiet against the Warriors on Friday with four points, four rebounds and nothing else in 21 minutes.

This type of line was commonplace last season, but he's done a great job avoiding them this year for the most part. Green has second-round value on the season in standard leagues and he'll get it going again on Monday against the Jazz.
Feb 21 - 4:17 AM

Danny Green had another one of his patented monster games against the Pistons during a 104-87 win on Wednesday, scoring 19 points with eight rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and five 3-pointers.

He was having a horrendous start to his month in his previous four games, averaging 7.0 points, 6.5 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.3 blocks, 1.8 steals and 1.0 treys on 25.0 percent from the field. Still, Green is the only guard in the NBA to average more than 1.0 blocks and steals while he boasts a 2.4 trey per game average. He's a fantasy stud and should keep it going.
Feb 11 - 10:49 PM

Danny Green grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds against the Pacers on Monday with eight points, one rebound, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

It was another bad shooting game for Green, making 2-of-9 from the field. Green played 33 minutes tonight after playing just 20.0 per game in his previous two. Coincidently, he's made 2-of-9 from the field in three of his last four games. He's still crushing his ADP and is a must-start player.
Feb 9 - 11:35 PM

Danny Green connected on five more 3-pointers on Saturday against the Clippers, finishing with 16 points, two boards, three steals and three blocks in 30 minutes.

He has now hit nine 3-pointers over his last two games, and it appears that he is finally over his shooting slump. Green's ability to produce in all categories makes him very valuable in fantasy, and this line confirms that he will be a must-own player for the rest of the way.
Feb 1 - 1:23 AM

Danny Green filled the stat sheet against the Hornets during a 95-86 win on Wednesday, scoring 16 points with five rebounds, two assists, two steals, three blocks and four 3-pointers.

He was coming in off two horrible games, averaging just 5.0 points, 2.0 boards, 2.5 dimes and 1.0 triples on 20.0 percent from the field. Green has been an early-round guy on the season and it would appear his floor is a mid-round guy. His owners have nothing to worry about, but they knew that just by reading his stat line tonight.
Jan 29 - 1:17 AM

Danny Green is in the midst of a major shooting slump, but a lot of that has to do with the fact that he has seen an increased workload this season.

"Some days the energy is there," said Green. "Some days, you’re fighting to find it." He is averaging a career-high 30.1 minutes per game, and currently leads the Spurs in minutes played so far this season. Over his last four games, he has made just 8-of-33 shots, including 6-of-21 from 3-point range. He should be able to turn things around soon, but knowing coach Gregg Popovich it's very possible that Green misses a game or two down the stretch in order to keep him fresh for playoffs.
Jan 28 - 10:32 AM

Danny Green couldn't break out of his cold spell against the Bucks on Sunday, scoring just three points on 1-of-9 shooting while adding two boards, three assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

He has now failed to score in double digits for the fourth game in a row, and it's obvious that he is losing confidence quickly. Green was in the midst of an incredible season prior to this slump, so his owners should hold onto him in the hope that he turns it around soon.
Jan 25 - 10:37 PM

Danny Green had a quiet game vs. the Nuggets, scoring six points on 2-of-12 shooting with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

The pair of 3s and defensive stats prop up the line for fantasy purposes, which isn't uncommon for the six-year veteran. He's notching 12.7 points, 2.5 threes, 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocks this season, and the return of Kawhi Leonard may actually help him in the long run -- he's shooting 50.0 percent with Kawhi alongside him this season, but just 41.7 percent when Kawhi isn't on the court.

Danny Green was fantastic against the Blazers on Friday, making 6-of-8 from the field for 19 points with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

That's good for a 100.0 effective field goal percentage and Green is just rolling this season. He was putting up big numbers while the Spurs were somewhat healthy back in November, so his performance over the past month was no aberration.
