Brandon Jennings wasn't happy about the Knicks making lineup changes on Monday.
"'Every day is something new, you never know if you're going to play," Jennings said. Uh oh. Jennings was also in a bad mood when he and Mindaugas Kuzminskas totally whiffed on a switch to leave Malcolm Delaney wide open for a jumper. Jennings may be feeling passed over for the Knicks starting Ron Baker over him here, but he's not worth adding in most leagues anyway. Jan 16 - 4:13 PM

Date:

Brandon Jennings shifted to the bench on Wednesday, where he posted nine points, three rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 24 minutes.

Derrick Rose returned to the lineup after a one-game absence, bumping Jennings to his usual, unpredictable bench role. He went 4-of-6 from the field with a 3-pointer, to his credit, but as long as Rose is healthy he's best suited to leagues with 14 or more teams.
Jan 11 - 10:07 PM

Brandon Jennings will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

Derrick Rose (personal) has rejoined the team, and he will be back in the starting five tonight, thus queuing the end of Jennings' run with the starting unit. As a reserve, Jennings is only averaging 6.8 points, 5.0 assists, 1.8 turnovers and 1.0 triple per contest on 37.0 percent shooting, so he's not worth owning in most leagues while he's running with the second unit.
Jan 11 - 11:22 AM

Brandon Jennings started at point guard in Monday's loss to the Pelicans and scored 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting.

Derrick Rose didn't even show up to the game and the Knicks still don't even know why. Whatever the case, Jennings looks like a nice add in all formats and played well in the lopsided loss, adding five rebounds, four assists, two steals, four 3-pointers and two turnovers in 29 minutes. In five previous starts this season, Jennings has posted averages of 17.0 points, 6.0 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.2 triples on 43.3 percent shooting.
Jan 9 - 10:37 PM

Brandon Jennings is starting in place of Derrick Rose (undisclosed) on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

The Knicks have not revealed why Rose is away from the team, so Jennings is just a speculative add in deeper leagues for now. We'll have an update after the game. Ron Baker will take over as the backup PG.
Jan 9 - 7:42 PM

Brandon Jennings was ejected with 21 seconds left in the fourth quarter against the Pacers on Saturday.

He was being very physical all night and the refs finally called him out on it. Jennings likely won't be suspended for this infraction and should be ready for Monday against the Pelicans. Jennings finished with 17 points, three rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes. He's worth a look if you're desperate for a point guard.
Jan 7 - 9:31 PM

Brandon Jennings played a season-low five minutes in Friday's win over the Bucks, finishing with one rebound, one assist and two turnovers.

The Knicks turned to Ron Baker down the stretch, but this was likely a fluke. Jennings has been solid off the bench all season and we'd be surprised if Baker suddenly leapfrogged him in the rotation after one bad game. With that said, Jennings shouldn't be owned in standard leagues right now anyways.
Jan 6 - 11:52 PM

Brandon Jennings played 16 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday, scoring three points with five rebounds and one 3-pointer.

That's a big cut in playing time and you can bet it has to do with all the size on the wings for the Bucks. Coach Jeff Hornacek has been talking up defense a lot more, so that should suggest we don't see as many two-PG lineups. Jennings should play more than this most nights, but most of his value lies in being a handcuff for Derrick Rose.
Jan 4 - 10:50 PM

Brandon Jennings returned to the bench on Monday vs. the Magic and scored 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting.

Courtney Lee (wrist) returned to action and saw a full workload of 34 minutes, so that will down Jennings' momentum after he went off for a season-high 32 points with seven assists, five rebounds, one block and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes in Saturday’s loss to the Rockets. He was impressive for the second straight game on Monday with four assists, three boards and two triples, but he only played 24 minutes. He's not the most reliable asset while Derrick Rose and Lee are active, but he's still trending in the right direction.
Jan 2 - 11:40 PM

Brandon Jennings scored a season-high 32 points with seven assists, five rebounds, one block and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes in Saturday’s loss to the Rockets.

With Courtney Lee (wrist) sidelined, Jennings got the start and took full advantage of his playing time. He started off going 5-of-5 from the field and finished the night shooting a healthy 54.5 percent. With Lee really just day-to-day and Jennings having some consistency issues, he's only a pickup for owners need a short-term boost.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 10:43:00 PM

Brandon Jennings and Lance Thomas will start for Courtney Lee (wrist) and Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) on Saturday to face the Rockets.

The Knicks are giving up some serious size to James Harden and Corey Brewer. Jennings and Derrick Rose have played together plenty this year, so it's not too surprising to see this move. The team has also used Sasha Vujacic at the point at times, so he may be in that role for the second unit. There's no need to make a pickup here.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 07:49:00 PM

Brandon Jennings handed out a season-high 12 assists against the Magic on Thursday, adding four points with one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Revenge game? He was on a dime fest early with seven assists in his first seven minutes with many of them of the flashy variety. Jennings can't really make shots right now with only a 28.6 field goal percentage in his last five outings, but he does have an impressive 7.2 assists per game in that stretch. He doesn't have a high usage rate and the Knicks bench offense is still decent lately. He's a dime specialist in fantasy, but his awful shooting can hurt in standard leagues.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 11:13:00 PM

Brandon Jennings will get bumped back to the bench with Derrick Rose returning Tuesday vs. the Pacers.

Jennings has started in place of Rose four times this season, averaging 13.3 points, 5.8 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 33.8 minutes per game in those four contests. His fantasy value is significantly diminished when coming off the bench. Jennings is averaging 7.4 points, 5.2 assists, and 2.6 rebounds in 22.1 minutes as a reserve this season
Tue, Dec 20, 2016 06:01:00 PM

Brandon Jennings started for Derrick Rose (back) once again Saturday and finished with 14 points, seven assists, three steals, two 3-pointers, and three turnovers.

Jennings has done a solid job filling in for D Rose. Jennings is averaging 11.8 points, 5.8 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.0 steals over his last five games. He is worth considering in DFS whenever Rose is sidelined, but be aware that his shot is broken right now. He's hit just 7-of-27 shots over his last three games.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 12:12:00 AM

Brandon Jennings started for Derrick Rose (back) on Thursday and hit 4-of-13 shots for 10 points, six rebounds and six assists in a blowout loss to the Warriors.

He didn't have a steal or a 3-pointer, but his line would have looked a lot better had he hit more shots. Rose is iffy for the near future with his injury, so Jennings could be in line for a couple more starts. And we're guessing he'll play better next time out, even if he comes off the bench. He's in a shooting funk right now, hitting just 5-of-19 shots over his last two games.
