O.J. Mayo hit 4-of-11 shots but missed all five of his 3-point attempts to finish with eight points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in another start on Friday against the Pistons.
Mayo turned the ball over five times on Wednesday and he was mistake-free in that department tonight, and if he hits a few of those longballs this would look like a pretty serviceable line. He has a low-end value for 12-team formats on the season and he'd need an injury to somebody like Brandon Knight to truly tap into any upside. Nov 28 - 11:53 PM

O.J. Mayo started again on Wednesday against the Wolves with 10 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block, two 3-pointers and five turnovers on 3-of-11 from the field.

Coach Jason Kidd seems to like the idea of using Mayo in the starting lineup, but more lines like this one will make it tough to keep him around 30 minutes. Chances are nobody is going to be running to grab him in your league anyway, so you can probably leave him on the wire in most leagues.

O.J. Mayo made his first start of the season vs. the Pistons on Tuesday, scoring 17 points on 5-of-10 shooting with three 3-pointers, two rebounds, three assists and one steal.

Jason Kidd has been juggling his lineups through the first month of the season, and tonight Mayo got the nod ahead of Khris Middleton. "We looked at [Mayo as a starter] at practice yesterday and as coaches we thought it looked good," Kidd said, by way of explanation. Mayo has enough upside to be worth a speculative add, especially since the Bucks won tonight's game, but don't be surprised if he's back in a reserve role by the end of the week.
Nov 25 - 10:54 PM

O.J. Mayo will enter the starting lineup Tuesday vs. the Pistons, sending Khris Middleton back to the bench.

Coach Jason Kidd's rotations have been all over the place this season, so while Mayo enters the starting lineup tonight, he could just as easily head back the bench in the next one. Mayo has been hit-or-miss this season, averaging 10.9 points, 3.4 assists, and 1.3 three-pointers per game while shooting 40.3 percent from the field. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach to see how Mayo fares with the starting unit.
Nov 25 - 6:31 PM

O.J. Mayo played a season-high 39 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday with 21 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

The triple-overtime game obviously helped him, but the high minutes are nice to see considering how out of shape he was last season. Mayo is shooting just 35 percent from the field this month and hasn't done enough to warrant an add in most leagues just yet.
Nov 20 - 1:06 AM

O.J. Mayo played a season-low 18 minutes in Sunday's win in Miami, making 4-of-8 shots to finish with eight points, two rebounds, three assists and one steal.

Mayo was hot to begin the season but he has just one double-digit scoring performance in the Bucks' past eight games. It'll be hard for him to establish reliable value as long as Brandon Knight, Jared Dudley, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Nate Wolters are all in the rotation.
Nov 16 - 8:56 PM

O.J. Mayo provided a huge lift off of the bench on Tuesday by scoring 19 points to go with four boards, one assist and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

He did shoot just 6-of-15, but owners who took a chance on him would be more than happy with this line. Mayo has looked rejuvenated this season and has slowly crawled his way into standard league consideration once again. If you want to take a flier on him, just be prepared to take the good with the bad.
Nov 11 - 11:46 PM

O.J. Mayo handed out a season-high seven assists against the Grizzlies on Saturday with nine points, four rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

The dimes were nice, but O.J.'s field goal percentage is not concentrated, making just 29.5 percent from the field over his last five to go with averages of 7.2 points, 2.2 boards, 1.4 steals and 0.8 triples. Mayo will need to string together a few games before he becomes a decent pickup.
Nov 9 - 1:27 AM

O.J. Mayo played just 19 minutes off the bench on Friday, hitting 2-of-9 shots (including a three) with one rebound, three assists, one steal and one block.

Mayo is averaging 23.2 minutes per game and returning top-100 value, but he hasn't been able to take control of this young unit and his minutes have been all over the place. Jason Kidd is also doing his best Larry Drew impersonation, so it's hard to get behind Mayo as a must-own player in 12-team leagues but statistically he's in the hunt.
Nov 8 - 1:26 AM

O.J. Mayo played 22 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, scoring nine points with three rebounds, five assists and three steals as Milwaukee won on the road in Indiana.

He quickly bounced back after a dreadful three-point game on Saturday, but fantasy owners should expect his production to fluctuate as long as he's stuck in a 20-28 minute role off the bench. Mayo coughed up three turnovers tonight and the Bucks lead the NBA with an average of 19.0 giveaways through their first four games, led by Brandon Knight (3.3), Zaza Pachulia (3.0), Khris Middleton (2.7) and Jabari Parker (2.7).
Nov 4 - 9:38 PM

O.J. Mayo was the 2013-14 version of himself on Saturday, making 1-of-7 from the field for three points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover.

Just when we thought he was back with a 25-point game on Friday, he comes up empty tonight. If you added Mayo, you must have known it wasn't going to be smooth sailing, so feel free to reconsider if you like a more consistent player.
Nov 2 - 1:00 AM

O.J. Mayo continued to put distance between his fat days and his skinny days with another solid effort on Friday, scoring 25 points on 8-of-13 shooting (including five threes) with three rebounds, five assists and a steal in 28 minutes.

Starting or not he's arguably the Bucks' best player right now and he looks like he's going to be one of the steals of this year's drafts. If he's available in your league, he shouldn't be.
Nov 1 - 12:50 AM

O.J. Mayo came off the bench to hit 6-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 17 points, three rebounds, three assists and a block in 24 minutes on Wednesday.

He finished the preseason on a high note and kept it rolling tonight. If he's available in your league, he's probably worth grabbing while things are still going so well.
Oct 29 - 10:29 PM

O.J. Mayo scored all 11 points in the first quarter against the Wolves on Wednesday to go with two rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

He's playing a lot better and looks like a new player. Mayo is coming off a two-game span with 21.5 points per game and it looks like he might be one year late to the party. Obviously, we're still going to see a lot more out of him, but fantasy owners should watch him closely. Plus, the Bucks need a shooting guard.
Oct 22 - 11:06 PM

A slimmed down O.J. Mayo scored 24 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 7-of-13 shots (including six threes) with zero rebounds, three assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

Milwaukee news can be hard to come by and even the local writers tweeting the game were surprised about how he looked. On that front, he looks like a totally different person and owners would be wise to not summarily dismiss him as a fantasy asset this year. He has had some good games mixed in with bad ones and the Milwaukee rotation is a crowded mess, but if Mayo can return to past form he should theoretically move toward starter's minutes.
