Goran Dragic was on the bench down the stretch against the Raptors on Monday with six points, one rebound, four assists and four turnovers in 21 minutes.
Dragic missed his first four shots and couldn't create like he usually does. Coach Jeff Horacek usually goes with the flow on his guards, so nights like this will happen. This is a potential buy-low opportunity as long as you're not paying a top-50 price. Nov 24 - 11:40 PM

According to reports, Goran Dragic will test out free agency next summer.

After coming to life last season for the Suns, Dragic will surely command huge interest from around the league if he opts out of his contract in the summer. However, this doesn't mean that he will leave the Suns even though it has been a huge adjustment for him to play alongside fellow point guards Isaiah Thomas and Eric Bledsoe. This is definitely something we will monitor, but for now Dragic's owners can continue deploying him as usual.

Goran Dragic had another impressive showing on Monday against the Celtics with 22 points, six rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

He's suddenly been nailing treys at 45.8 percent over his last five, averaging 18.0 points, 2.8 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.2 triples per game in that span. Dragic has also seen consistent minutes and coach Jeff Hornacek is going to have a tough time benching him as long as he's playing well. He's probably not going to be this good, though.
Nov 17 - 11:46 PM

Goran Dragic scored 19 points with one rebound, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

He looked a lot better since his rock-bottom game, averaging 18.0 points, 2.2 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.8 triples on 50.0 percent from the field in his last five. Dragic is unlikely to be a top-40 guy this season, but his owner might consider him a serious bust, so see if he/she would be willing to sell the Dragon at a discount.
Nov 16 - 3:13 AM

Goran Dragic had a slow night with 12 points, two rebounds, two assists and one block over 32 minutes in Friday's loss.

This time owners can't blame the bench unit of Isaiah Thomas and Gerald Green because the duo got just 28 minutes and 13 shot attempts. One of the less publicized threats to he and Eric Bledsoe's value this season is a deep and improving roster, such as the Morris twins (11-of-25 FGs together) and an increasingly active Miles Plumlee (6-of-9 FGs). Still sitting outside of the top-100, there is some buy low appeal but it's well past time for folks to downgrade expectations into a top 40-80 range.
Nov 15 - 3:04 AM

Goran Dragic scored 18 points with three rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.

It was Eric Bledsoe's turn to get benched down the stretch as coach Jeff Horacek went with Dragic, Isaiah Thomas and Gerald Green to help seal the deal. Dragic has bounced back for what looked to be a rock-bottom, six-point game on Nov. 5, but he's certainly going to have some bad games with the Suns strong second unit taking minutes away from him.
Nov 13 - 1:28 AM

Goran Dragic scored 19 points in Sunday's win vs. the Warriors, along with three assists, two boards, three steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

After a slow start to the season, the Dragon is finally starting to turn it on and has scored 41 points combined over his last two games. However, the addition of Isaiah Thomas has put a dent in Dragic's value and he may struggle to finish as a top-50 option.
Nov 9 - 11:05 PM

Goran Dragic finally hit a 3-point shot and finished with 22 points, three rebounds, four assists and two steals in Friday's double-overtime loss to the Kings.

Dragic hit 7-of-17 shots from the field and 7-of-8 from the foul line to go with his 1-of-2 mark from deep. Owners are still pretty down on him and a buy low offer could possibly fly, with tonight's output being the bait for an overly pessimistic owner. We figured his production would take a hit with Isaiah Thomas in town, but it's too early for everybody to just scrap preseason projections here.
Nov 8 - 3:32 AM

Goran Dragic was quiet against the Grizzlies on Wednesday with six points, one rebound, three assists, one steal and two turnovers in 26 minutes.

Dragic was one of the most efficient guards in the NBA last season on his way to a 20 point-per-game season, so he probably will get it turned around in some capacity. That said, there's a very good chance he doesn't turn in top-50 value this season, as Isaiah Thomas, Eric Bledsoe and Gerald Green appear to be ruining him before our eyes. Dragic is averaging just 12.0 points, 2.2 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.0 3-pointers thus far, and there doesn't appear to be a lot of relief in sight.
Nov 6 - 1:08 AM

Goran Dragic neared his season-high with 16 points vs. the Lakers on Tuesday, adding seven rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

Dragic had zero 3-pointers or steals and he's yet to make a 3-pointer in four games this season. Eric Bledsoe has the security of a massive contract extension, and Isaiah Thomas seems comfortable in his niche as a go-to playmaker off the bench, but Dragic has yet to find his footing in 2014-15. He can't be much worse than he's been through four games, but fantasy owners may have to quickly accept that the competition in the Suns' backcourt will preclude Dragic from approaching last year's career-best averages.
Nov 5 - 1:47 AM

Jeff Hornacek said Goran Dragic will have to adjust with teams playing him differently this season.

Dragic is 0-of-8 from distance, and just 2-of-15 on jumper through the Suns' first three games. "Guys are going to play him differently," Hornacek said. "They're not going to give him any open shots now. He's got to be a little quicker on the shot and make bigger, quicker decisions." Another concern for Dragic is that he's doing less playmaking, totaling just four assists through three games. There's a buy-low opportunity here for owners willing to gamble on The Dragon.
Nov 3 - 11:30 AM

The Suns will use the same starting lineup for Friday's game against the Spurs.

Along with Dragic, that will mean Eric Bledsoe, Miles Plumlee and the Morris twins will draw the start. Given that the Suns looked excellent (against the Lakers) in their first game, it makes sense for Jeff Hornacek to roll out the same group in the second affair.
Oct 30 - 6:15 PM

Goran Dragic made 6-of-12 from the field and all six shots at the line against the Lakers on Wednesday, scoring 18 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 26 minutes.

His minutes would have been higher, but the Suns just demolished the Lakers to get this game to garbage time. Dragic was still the focal point of the offense and had no problems getting into the lane. He was more of a top-40 player while Eric Bledsoe was in the lineup last year, so fantasy owners shouldn't have the bar set too high right now.
Oct 30 - 3:53 AM

Goran Dragic, Eric Bledsoe and Isaiah Thomas each played between 28-30 minutes in Friday's preseason finale, with Dragic scoring 18 points on efficient 8-of-11 shooting.

He drained two 3-pointers and had three assists and one steal, but it could be difficult to match last year's averages with Bledsoe healthy and IT3 carving out a big role off the bench. Jeff Hornacek played his three guards simultaneously for a while tonight, which could pay dividends during the season, but it's hard to imagine that being a staple of the Suns' rotation.
Oct 24 - 11:44 PM

Goran Dragic was quiet on Wednesday, hitting just 2-of-8 shots for four points, two rebounds, four assists and two steals in 26 minutes.

He missed all three of his 3-point attempts and what's more disturbing about his line is that Isaiah Thomas played just 17 minutes off the bench. Eric Bledsoe got hot and scored 27 points, and these three guards are going to cause a lot of headaches for their owners, as they'll likely take turns getting hot on any given night.
