Marreese Speights scored 19 points off the bench in the Warriors' 126-101 win over the Kings on Friday, hitting 8-of-13 shots with six rebounds and one block in 21 minutes.
Speights is a solid late-round value in 9-cat leagues this season, but in 8-cat formats he's hovering at the bottom of the top-150. Still, owners know what they're going to get with him on most nights and that makes him a serviceable low-end big man in 12-team formats. Jan 24 - 5:04 AM

Marreese Speights was headed for a disastrous line on Wednesday, but got hot in the final minutes and salvaged a line of nine points, two rebounds, a block and a rare 3-pointer in just eight minutes.

He got hot in garbage time and the desperation 3-pointer was the icing on the cake. The Warriors need Speights down the stretch in order to keep Andrew Bogut healthy and rested, and Speights was just getting a rest of his own tonight. He's not a must-own or must-start player, but he's probably worth keeping around with Bogut's health always in question, as well as the Warriors' strong weekly schedule the rest of the way.
Jan 22 - 1:59 AM

Marreese Speights scored 15 points off the bench on Saturday with five rebounds, three assists and one block against the Rockets.

He played 20 minutes and he might see his playing time dip into the teens now that the Warriors are healthy again. Speights has one of the highest usage rates among bench bigs, so he should still be able to muster up some value for owners in deeper leagues.
Jan 18 - 12:37 AM

Marreese Speights will draw the start on Saturday against Houston, while Andrew Bogut will come off the bench.

Bogut was rested on Friday, so this may simply be an attempt to monitor his minutes. Speights has been able to contribute even in limited minutes this season, so if you're in need of a big give him a look.
Jan 17 - 7:33 PM

Marreese Speights started with Andrew Bogut out on Friday against the Thunder, scoring 20 points on 9-of-16 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in 28 minutes.

Speights has standalone value as a low-end big man but obviously he can get a little loose when Bogut is out. Give him a look.
Jan 17 - 12:30 AM

Marreese Speights returned to a bench role vs. Utah on Tuesday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with one 3-pointer, one rebound and one block.

He racked up four personal fouls but still logged 22 minutes, and should average 20-25 per game due to the fact that starting C Andrew Bogut is on a minute-limit. Speights' efficient scoring makes him a borderline option in most fantasy formats, but he's not a must-own player while Bogut is healthy.
Jan 13 - 11:40 PM

Marrese Speights will be replaced by Andrew Bogut (illness) in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Jazz.

While Speights obviously loses some value with this move, owners should use a wait-and-see approach before making any drastic decisions. Speights has proven that he can contribute in limited action, so it's not out of the question for him to make some noise off the bench. However, is there's a hot free agent on the wire, we wouldn't blame you for making the switch.
Jan 13 - 7:45 PM

Marreese Speights scored 12 points with eight rebounds, one steal and two blocks over 28 minutes on Friday against the Cavs.

Speights dipped a little bit after getting held up outside of a nightclub but he didn't dip much and he's back on track now. He should be owned in 12-team formats as a lower-end asset.
Jan 10 - 4:08 AM

Marreese Speights escaped unharmed after he had a gun pulled on him outside of a downtown San Francisco nightclub on Monday morning.

Speights was outside a SanFran night club early on Monday morning when a convicted felon pulled a gun on him in a parking lot and tried to steal his gold chains, but was able to run away and escape injury. Speights struggled with his shooting on Monday when he hit just 1-of-8 shots and had six points in 17 minutes in a win over the Thunder, and this story likely explains his poor performance. Speights was solid against the Pacers with 18 points and three rebounds on Wednesday, and could continue to maintain some fantasy value despite the return of Andrew Bogut.
Jan 9 - 2:59 AM

Marreese Speights played 26 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday with 18 points, three rebounds and one turnover.

His minutes did not fall off with Andrew Bogut returning and he should be able to hold them in the mid-20s for at least a week. Speights was only playing 15.6 minutes per game in November, so there's a good chance his fantasy value starts heading south.
Jan 8 - 2:15 AM

Marreese Speights posted a dud in Monday's blowout win over the Thunder, hitting just 1-of-8 shots for six points and six rebounds in 17 minutes.

The blowout makes this an excusable absence to some degree and he has been a solid late-round value lately. His upside isn't great so don't hesitate to move on a hot free agent but owners will probably want to see how he does on Wednesday against the Pacers.
Jan 6 - 3:06 AM

Marreese Speights scored 26 points on 12-of-19 shooting with eight rebounds in Friday's win over the Raptors.

Speights is playing pretty well and yes it's enhanced by his stellar teammates but owners can't bury their heads in the sand here. Even if Andrew Bogut returns it's likely that Speights maintains a significant role and he's turning in late-round on a consistent basis.
Jan 3 - 3:27 AM

Marreese Speights teed off against the Sixers on Tuesday, scoring 23 points on 9-of-13 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs, with four rebounds, four assists and four blocks in only 24 minutes.

Speights' per-minute production is terrific, and he's getting the playing time since Andrew Bogut (knee) still doesn't have a firm timetable for his return. Owners seeking typical big man production should eagerly insert Speights into their starting lineups, with the caveat that the Warriors play just four games from Dec. 31 through Jan. 12.
Wed, Dec 31, 2014 01:23:00 AM

Marreese Speights will draw another start against Minnesota on Saturday.

Festus Ezeli (ankle) and Andrew Bogut (knee) are both sidelined, so Speights will continue to see extended run with the first team. However, Bogut is nearing a return and David Lee is finally healthy, so it is only a matter of time before Speights heads back to the waiver wire, as there simply aren't enough minutes to go around in Golden State.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 08:51:00 PM

Marreese Speights made 4-of-9 from the field and 3-of-6 from the line for 11 points with one rebound, one steal and two turnovers in 22 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

As expected, his usage rate took a hit tonight, but he was still able to get involved on the offensive side. Draymond Green has been too good and David Lee won't take minutes from him, so it will likely be from Speights. His owners in deep leagues should expect a dip.
