Jodie Meeks scored a season-high 21 points vs. Philly on Wednesday, hitting 5-of-11 FGs and 8-of-9 FTs with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.
It's the fourth time all season that Meeks has logged more than 20 minutes in a game, and the playing time was heavily influenced by the score -- Washington trailed by 18 points at halftime and leaned on their bench in the second half. He's been hot over his past two games, but remains little more than a specialist for 3-pointers and strong FT percentage. Nov 29 - 11:04 PM

Jodie Meeks scored six points in 18 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

He was also out there for five minutes in no-PG lineup combos, mostly with Brad Beal. Meeks could have some low-end value in deep leagues as a triples specialist.
Nov 25 - 9:41 PM

Jodie Meeks posted 10 points with three rebounds, an assist and a steal in 27 minutes off the bench Friday at Golden State.

Meeks connected for a pair of 3-pointers, but he also finished with a dismal minus-20 outing, as he was on the floor longer than expected with Bradley Beal ejected for a dust-up with Draymond Green earlier in the game. The team did all right without Beal for a while, but then they folded in the final quarter getting outscored 33-20. He'll be back to a smaller role Sunday in Sacramento and remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Oct 28 - 1:48 AM

Jodie Meeks went 3-of-7 from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe during Sunday's preseason win over Cleveland, on his way to 13 points and three 3-pointers.

Meeks also chipped in four boards an assist and a steal, and he's been playing well through the preseason with averages of 13.3 points, 3.0 triples and 1.0 steal in 14.5 minutes per contest. Meeks figures to have a sixth man type role in Washington this season, but Scott Brooks will likely try and keep his minutes in the low-20s given his injury history, which won't be enough floor time for him to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 8 - 5:49 PM

Jodie Meeks hit the ground running in his Wizards preseason debut vs. the Guangzhou Long-Lions, notching 19 points in 16 minutes with four triples and two steals.

It's nice to see Meeks find some success after spending so much time on the sidelines over the past few seasons. Meeks was one of the first players off the bench along with Kelly Oubre and could be looking at minutes in the high teens to lower 20s when the games actually matter. He's unlikely to have any real fantasy value while the Wizards are healthy, though.
Oct 2 - 9:42 PM

After appearing in an average of 33 games over the past few seasons due to foot, back and thumb injuries, Jodie Meeks said he finally feels healthy.

"I would say I'm 100 percent now. Thank the good Lord that I'm past that," Meeks said. "It's summer time, so my body feels great. I came back from my thumb at the end of the season. I played okay and finished out the season healthy. This summer I got some rest. Now I'm working out again and I feel fine." The Wizards lost Bojan Bogdanovic to the Pacers, so Meeks will be relied on to add a scoring punch to Washington's bench. As long as Bradley Beal is healthy, Meeks won't have much fantasy value.
Jul 17 - 10:16 AM

Jodie Meeks believes that he can be a "perfect fit" in Scott Brooks' system.

"Before I signed I asked what my role would be and it's pretty much what I've been doing my whole career. Come off the bench, obviously behind [Bradley Beal]," Meeks said. "I just wanted to find the best situation for myself with what I bring to the table shooting-wise and playing with a lot of energy. I wanted a perfect fit for both sides and I think I did that." Meeks has seriously struggled to stay healthy over the years, so Brooks may want to limit his playing time to the teens.
Jul 16 - 3:18 PM

Jodie Meeks has agreed to a two-year, $7 million deal with the Wizards.

Injuries have really slowed Meeks down over the past couple years, but he's a career 37.6 percent 3-point shooter and immediately improves the second unit in Washington which was their biggest weakness last season. Meeks put up 9.1 points per game with the Magic in 2016-17 with 2.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.6 treys in 20.5 minutes per game, but his role will probably be reduced on his new team.
Jul 2 - 12:39 PM

Jodie Meeks scored eight points with three rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers against the Pacers on Saturday.

Evan Fournier's wrist looked fine, so Meeks may not be starting again. There's a chance he gets bumped from the rotation to look at some of the younger guys.
Apr 8 - 8:31 PM

Jodie Meeks will move back to the bench on Saturday.

His third quarter on Thursday was great, but he didn't do much else in that start. Meeks may lose even more playing time with the Magic wanting to look at their young guys.
Apr 8 - 5:22 PM

Jodie Meeks started vs. Brooklyn on Thursday and had 20 points, two rebounds and four 3-pointers, including an 18-point explosion in the third quarter.

Evan Fournier was out with a sore right wrist and the severity of the injury is unknown -- the Magic have nothing to play for at this point, so more DNPs are possible. Meeks' third quarter was the highest-scoring quarter for any Magic player this season, and it's hard to trust him with Orlando shifting toward player evaluation -- guys like Marcus Georges-Hunt, Patricio Garino and Mario Hezonja could all usurp Meeks' minutes, even if Fournier misses more time.
Apr 6 - 11:03 PM

Jodie Meeks will start for Evan Fournier (wrist) against the Nets on Thursday.

He gets a great matchup against a very soft Nets defense. Meeks has also fared well as the starter, averaging 11.4 points, 3.0 boards, 2.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.0 treys on a tidy 61.9 true shooting percentage in his previous nine starts this season. He'll likely be a popular punt for DFS and is worth a look as a stream or add in deep leagues. We should see more Mario Hezonja with Terrence Ross able to slide over to the two, as well.
Apr 6 - 5:23 PM

Jodie Meeks (thumb) missed eight of his nine field goal attempts in Monday's game against the 76ers, finishing with nine points and four rebounds in 20 minutes.

Meeks managed to get to the free throw stripe nine times, converting seven, to somewhat salvage the stat line in his return. Fantasy owners in deeper leagues might want to hold off using Meeks until he can knock off the rust after a two-month layoff.
Mar 20 - 11:12 PM

Jodie Meeks (thumb) will be available to play Monday vs. the 76ers.

Meeks hasn't taken the court since January 18, and while he'll be available to play tonight, there are no guarantees he'll actually get out there. Meeks may cut into Mario Hezonja's minutes once he's fully up to speed, but he doesn't offer enough upside to warrant a pickup anywhere.
Mar 20 - 5:24 PM

Jodie Meeks (thumb) has been cleared to play and is expected to be available Monday against the Sixers.

He has been going through some on-court work and some videos of him have shown him working up a good sweat. It'll be interesting to see if the Magic go with Meeks or they continue to take a look at Mario Hezonja off the bench. Regardless, Mario and Meeks are not worth owning in most leagues.
