Marreese Speights scored a season-high 23 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes in Monday's 120-98 win over the Thunder.
He scored 10 of his points in garbage time during the fourth quarter, but Speights was on fire all night, hitting 8-of-15 shots from the field and 4-of-4 from the line. Speights is a per-minute monster, but the problem is that he's only eclipsed the 20-minute mark one time in January (tonight). With Blake Griffin (knee) nearing a return, it's tough to get excited about this. We'll let you know if his role grows. Jan 17 - 1:24 AM

Marreese Speights scored 13 efficient points off the bench on Wednesday, hitting 5-of-6 shots with three 3-pointers, three rebounds and one assist in a home win vs. the Magic.

Speights has made at least one three-pointer in 14 straight games, the longest streak of his career. He's managed to carve out late-round value in Blake Griffin's absence despite playing just 16.9 minutes over the past month. During that time he's established a nice rapport with Chris Paul -- coming into this game, Speights had a 72.7 effective FG percentage off passes from CP3. That said, he's an atypical fantasy big man whose primary virtues have been 3-pointers and FT%.

Marreese Speights was ultra-efficient on Sunday, going 6-of-8 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line on his way to 19 points, three 3-pointers, two boards, one assist, one block and one turnover.

Speights did all of his damage in a mere 14 minutes off the bench, and he's been a per-minute monster ever since Blake Griffin (knee) went down. Unfortunately, his playing time has been too sporadic to trust him in standard leagues, so he's just a low-end asset to own in deep leagues for those seeking some help in the 3-point department.
Jan 8 - 7:21 PM

Marreese Speights made just one bucket from the field for five points against the Grizzlies, adding six rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 13 minutes on Wednesday.

He's usually the go-to guy when the Clippers need buckets late, but that wasn't the case with coach Doc Rivers having a lead. Speights did draw his 20th charge this season, which leads the league. He'll be hit and miss until Blake Griffin (knee) comes back.
Jan 5 - 1:43 AM

Marreese Speights scored 18 points with five rebounds and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

That's a Mo Buckets special. He continues to get most of his minutes as the backup five, but getting 29 minutes next to DeAndre Jordan in the last seven is a decent little bonus. He actually only has a 24.2 usage rate, but his 65.3 true shooting percentage has given him some short-term value until Blake Griffin (knee) gets back.

Marreese Speights hit 5-of-10 shots for 14 points, seven rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in Thursday’s win against the Spurs.

This was the third consecutive game that Speights scored double-digit points. With Blake Griffin (knee) out for at least four weeks, Speights could see a bigger role during that stretch. He remains an unreliable fantasy option at this time, but is someone worth adding to the watch list.

Marreese Speights scored 17 points with 12 rebounds, four assist and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

Blake Griffin (knee) is going to play on Monday, so Speights will go back to his reserve role. Mo Buckets isn't really an add here, but keep this in mind if Griffin needs to miss more time at some point in the future.

Marreese Speights struggled in 17 minutes vs. the Pacers, scoring just two points on 1-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds and one steal.

Speights racked up 16 points and 12 rebounds vs. Dallas on Wednesday, but that was largely due to the quality of the opponent -- in the two games since he's averaging 2.5 points and 4.5 boards. There's no reason to own Speights in typical leagues.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 08:41:00 PM

Marreese Speights double-doubled vs. the Mavs on Wednesday with 16 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in just 22 minutes.

It's Speights' first double-double with the Clippers and he's proven to be a valuable offseason addition, giving L.A.'s second unit an offensive dimension they've lacked in years past. Despite his excellent real-world fit, he's only worth fantasy owners' attention in 14-team leagues and deeper.

Marreese Speights did his thing in 19 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday, scoring a season-high 16 points with four rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers.

Mo' wins for the 12-2 Clippers and Mo Buckets getting, well, mo' buckets. Speights didn't score in double figures in any of his previous five games and his 19 minutes matched his season high. He's a blast to watch when he's on, but his unpredictability factor makes him tough to own.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 01:52:00 AM

Marreese Speights had four points, four rebounds and one block in 17 minutes of action on Sunday, finishing 1-of-8 from the field and 1-of-2 from the line.

The eight-year veteran had a strong Clippers debut, scoring 15 points with two 3-pointers, but occasional disappearing acts are inevitable. With limited defensive stats and middling rebounds for a big man, Speights is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Sun, Oct 30, 2016 07:19:00 PM

Marreese Speights played just 16 minutes on Thursday, but hit 4-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points and two rebounds in a 114-106 win over the Blazers.

This is reminiscent of some of his lines in Golden State and he is the main back up for DeAndre Jordan. DAJ could get some bench time late in games due to his poor free throw shooting, so Speights may end up having some value. But 16 minutes is not very much run and it will likely take an injury to DAJ for Speights to be worth a look in most fantasy leagues.
Fri, Oct 28, 2016 02:24:00 AM

Marreese Speights scored 14 points vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, adding five rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 17 minutes.

He was basically the only Clipper who showed up tonight, but it's not a surprise that Speights went off against his friends at Golden State. We love that he added a 3-point shot to his arsenal and he could have some big nights off the bench, but his production will be too volatile to trust in season-long leagues. He's not a great option while the Clippers are healthy.
Wed, Oct 5, 2016 01:34:00 AM

Marreese Speights has agreed to a deal with the Clippers.

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, it's expected to a be one-year deal for the minimum salary. Speights had some nice moments for the Warriors last season, averaging 7.1 points and 3.3 boards in just 11.6 minutes per game. Speights could fill the void left by Cole Aldrich, but he won't be a fantasy asset in Los Angeles while they're at full strength.
Fri, Jul 8, 2016 11:43:00 AM

Marreese Speights is reportedly willing to re-sign with the Warriors at the veteran's minimum.

Speights may want to continue being a part of the championship culture, but with David West now on the roster, his roll with the Dubs would be non-existent as would his fantasy value.
