O.J. Mayo kept it going against the Pistons on Saturday with 20 points, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and four 3-pointers on 8-of-14 from the field.
He's been in a bizarro world lately. O.J. Miracle Whip? Kidding aside, Mayo has a Kyle Korver like 70.8 effective field goal percentage in his last six games, averaging 15.2 points, 2.5 boards, 2.5 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.5 blocks and 2.5 treys. This is probably the hottest he'll be, but he's been too good to ignore. If you need scoring, give him a long look. Jan 24 - 10:51 PM

O.J. Mayo scored 12 points with two rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

He is playing well these days and has surprisingly been consistent. Over his last five, Mayo averaged 14.2 points, 2.4 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.2 treys on 58.7 percent from the field. His ceiling is capped because he's only playing 24.2 minutes per game this season, but he's worth a look if you need scoring and treys.
Jan 22 - 11:52 PM

O.J. Mayo scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes on Monday.

Mayo has been producing lately with averages over his last six games of 13.0 points, 2.2 threes, 2.5 boards, 2.8 assists and unsustainable levels of shooting the ball. When the shooting cools off the bottom could (and should) fall through, and he's still only a deep league asset until he can produce without the fluky 54.7 percent shooting from the field.
Jan 20 - 2:04 AM

O.J. Mayo scored a team-high 22 points against the Knicks on Thursday with one rebound and four 3-pointers.

He was 8-of-14 from the field for his highest scoring game since October. Mayo is turning the corner over his last four games, averaging 15.3 points, 2.5 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 30.0 triples on 59.0 percent from the field. Those are must-start numbers right there, so feel free to give him a look in all leagues that count 3-pointers. Reminder: Mayo is wildly inconsistent.
Jan 15 - 8:41 PM

O.J. Mayo scored an efficient 12 points in a 98-84 victory over the team that drafted him on Friday, making 4-of-6 from the field for 12 points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

That's good for a 100 effective field goal percentage against a soft Wolves defense. Mayo does have two strong games in a row with a 15-point effort on Wednesday, but that was against the 76ers. His minutes are too inconsistent to be owned in most leagues right now.
Jan 10 - 3:10 AM

O.J. Mayo hit 6-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, four rebounds, six assists and a steal in 24 minutes off the Bucks bench on Wednesday.

He's over his illness and should see solid minutes going forward, but he'll still be a model of inconsistency as long as he's coming off the Bucks bench.
Jan 7 - 11:40 PM

O.J. Mayo (illness) played 18 minutes off the Bucks' bench on Tuesday, scoring four points on 2-of-6 shooting with one rebound, three assists and two turnovers.

He missed all three of his 3-point attempts and didn't take any free throws, and there's simply no reason to own him outside of very deep fantasy leagues. He played the third-fewest minutes of any Bucks player tonight, ahead of only Johnny O'Bryant (14 minutes) and Kendall Marshall (13 minutes).
Jan 6 - 10:38 PM

O.J. Mayo (illness) will play vs. the Suns on Tuesday.

He didn't go through shootaround and may not be 100 percent, so he may not play more than the 25 minutes he got off the bench on Monday. He's averaging 11.1 points on 40.4 percent shooting over the past month and his fantasy production is too limited for use outside of very deep leagues.
Jan 6 - 7:03 PM

O.J. Mayo (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

Mayo missed Tuesday's shootaround, but it's worth noting that he played with the same illness on Monday night. We'll update his status as more information becomes available, but Jared Dudley (who also missed shootaround) and Jerryd Bayless would be the biggest fantasy beneficiaries if Mayo sits Tuesday night.
Jan 6 - 1:15 PM

O.J. Mayo played 25 minutes on Sunday vs. the Knicks despite coping with an illness, finishing with just four points, five boards, two assists, one steal and one block.

He shot just 2-of-9 from the field and missed all four of his 3-pointers, but he deserves a pass considering he clearly wasn't feeling 100 percent. However, even when he is healthy Mayo simply doesn't have a large enough role to make an impact in most fantasy leagues, so he can be left on the waiver wire for now.
Jan 4 - 10:16 PM

Bucks' head coach Jason Kidd said that O.J. Mayo (illness) will give it a try off the bench for Sunday's game against the Knicks.

Mayo said that he's feeling a bit better, but his outlook for tonight's game against the Knicks doesn't look promising. People playing daily leagues should probably look elsewhere for production.
Jan 4 - 6:40 PM

O.J. Mayo (illness) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game vs. the Knicks.

He wasn't able to participate in the morning shootaround so his owners will have to check back prior to tip-off for official confirmation. If Mayo is unable to play the Bucks will likely use a committee approach to soak up his minutes with Jared Dudley likely being the biggest beneficiary of this news.
Jan 4 - 11:56 AM

O.J. Mayo hit 6-of-13 shots for 15 points, three rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's win.

This was one of Mayo's better games in recent memory and it's probably not a coincidence that a red-hot Jared Dudley cooled off tonight. Mayo played just 20 minutes to Dudley's 30, but was far more efficient and productive.
Wed, Dec 31, 2014 09:45:00 PM

O.J. Mayo scored 11 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 5-of-8 shots (including a three) with five rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes.

It didn't look like he'd be in the rotation at one point but he got into the game and made a little bit of noise, but this is the same exact stat line that has qualified as a 'good night' lately. Jason Kidd said he likes him coming off the bench after the game, too, so there's not a lot to like with Mayo's current situation.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 01:31:00 AM

O.J. Mayo will come off the bench against the Hawks on Friday.

Coach Jason Kidd said he wants to see how Mayo fared in the second unit, which sounds like a nice way of saying he's going to cut his playing time. Mayo has made just 4-of-14 from the field in his last two games and is not worth using in almost any league tonight.
