Jerryd Bayless downplayed a postgame exchange with DeMarcus Cousins.
Bayless and Cousins reportedly exchanged some words after Wednesday's game, but Bayless said the incident was just part of a heated game. "It happens," Bayless said. "You move on." There was reportedly no contact made by either player, so it doesn't sound like we should see any punishment from the league here. Nov 26 - 9:42 AM

Jerryd Bayless played 36 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday with 13 points, four rebounds, four assists, four steals and three 3-pointers.

With Michael Carter-Williams struggling, Jerryd Bayless picked up some extra playing time. Bayless also benefited from Jabari Parker only playing in 21 minutes. He's not quite worth owning in all standard leagues, but he is on the radar in almost any format.
Nov 25 - 11:12 PM

Jerryd Bayless scored nine points with one rebound, two assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

Jabari Parker and O.J. Mayo returning really hurt Bayless tonight. Parker has looked great and is already hitting 30 minutes, so there's a very low upside for Bayless right now.
Nov 19 - 11:40 PM

Jerryd Bayless played well in a start for Jabari Parker (foot) on Tuesday, scoring 13 points with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He's done a fine job in almost any role the Bucks have asked him to play. Bayless has some terrific numbers in his last five, averaging 16.6 points, 2.6 boards, 4.8 boards, 1.8 steals and 2.8 treys. He won't be quite this valuable because Michael Carter-Williams and Jabari Parker missed most of that time, but he's worth a look in most leagues while he's playing this well.
Nov 17 - 9:34 PM

Jerryd Bayless will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Wizards with Jabari Parker (foot sprain) unavailable.

The Bucks will roll out a starting lineup of Michael Carter-Williams, Bayless, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Greg Monroe for Tuesday's game, and Bayless is someone to consider in daily leagues with a favorable matchup against Washington. Jabari is going to be on the sidelines for at least the next three games, so Bayless could have a prolonged stint in the starting unit.

Jerryd Bayless scored 17 points off the bench on Saturday against the Cavs with two rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

This is a lot better than anticipated with Michael Carter-Williams back in action today. Bayless hasn't really been able to string games together, so we'll need to see him do it again before suggesting him as a pickup.
Nov 15 - 12:19 AM

Jerryd Bayless scored a team-high 22 points off the bench against the Nuggets on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

He made 7-of-10 from the field in his 28 minutes. Bayless is on a nice little run in his last three, averaging 17.7 points with 5.3 assists, 2.3 steals and 2.7 treys. Michael Carter-Williams (ankle) and his high usage rate should return this weekend, which means there's little incentive to adding Bayless right now.
Nov 12 - 12:19 AM

Jerryd Bayless played 30 minutes on Tuesday, but hit just 3-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 12 points, two rebounds, two assists and three steals in a loss to the Celtics.

With Michael Carter-Williams still out with his sprained left ankle, and it's still unknown when we might see him again. Tyler Ennis is starting and Greivis Vasquez is getting run, but Bayless is the best bet for success as long as MCW is out, even though he's not all that reliable, either.
Nov 10 - 11:34 PM

Jerryd Bayless went nuts off the bench in Saturday's win over the Nets, scoring 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting (including three treys) with one rebound, 10 assists, two steals and two blocks in 32 minutes.

Bayless has an explosive quality that makes these games possible but owners should consider the opponent and know that his long-term outlook isn't the best. Whether it's Michael Carter-Williams' (ankle) return or Jabari Parker getting up to speed, there are a number of ways for Bayless' value to take a big dip. With consistency also an issue, Bayless is a short-term flier for those in daily leagues.
Nov 8 - 7:19 AM

Jerryd Bayless will come off the bench for Friday's game against the Knicks.

Bayless was very disappointing in a start vs. the 76ers on Wednesday and Jason Kidd is never reluctant to shake up his rotations, so it's not a surprise to see Tyler Ennis inserted into the starting lineup with Michael Carter-Williams (ankle) still sidelined. Bayless is a deep-league option at best.
Nov 6 - 11:56 AM

Jerryd Bayless got the start at point guard on Wednesday with five points, four rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

He had trouble on both ends and coach Jason Kidd went away from him down the stretch. Bayless should still get big minutes as long as Michael Carter-Williams is out. He doesn't have great long-term value this season, but is worth a look in deeper leagues right now.
Nov 5 - 12:39 AM

Jerryd Bayless will start at point guard for Wednesday's game against the 76ers with Michael Carter-Williams (ankle) unavailable.

Bayless compiled 26 points, six 3-pointers, three boards and two assists through 47 minutes of action on Monday, and with a favorable matchup against the 76ers tonight, he makes sense as a DFS target.
Nov 4 - 6:24 PM

Jerryd Bayless hit a career-high tying six triples in Monday's win, finishing with 26 points on 8-of-15 shooting, three rebounds and two assists in 47 minutes.

O.J. Mayo did not play and Jabari Parker returns on Wednesday so there are a few different reasons to not chase these numbers. If he keeps it up, we'll let you know.
Nov 3 - 12:00 AM

Jerryd Bayless will start on Monday.

The Bucks will move Johnny O'Bryant back to the bench tonight. This move doesn't make much fantasy impact and it's just about the lineup combos. Bayless can be ignored in most leagues.
Nov 2 - 6:54 PM

Jerryd Bayless started at SG for the short-handed Bucks on Wednesday, but he scored only four points on 0-of-6 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs.

Bayless chipped in six rebounds, two assists and two steals, with three turnovers, and it wasn't the performance opportunistic DFS owners were hoping to see. There's no reason to own Bayless with Giannis Antetokounmpo due back from his suspension on Thursday.
