Jodie Meeks was invisible on Tuesday, scoring three points with one rebound in only 15 minutes vs. the Cavaliers.
He shot 1-of-5 from the field and hasn't found any lasting traction since returning from his serious back injury on Dec. 12. Meeks has intriguing potential if you're in search of 3-pointers, steals and FT percentage, but for now most owners should cut him in favor of a more reliable free agent. Feb 24 - 10:23 PM

Jodie Meeks didn't play well off the bench against the Bulls on Friday with nine points, two rebounds and one steal in 19 minutes.

He made all five free throws to boost his season shooting to a league-leading 94.7 percent. On the other hand, he is in some kind of slump from deep in his last 12 games, making 14.3 percent from beyond the arc with averages of 10.6 points, 1.7 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.5 treys. We like Meeks, but there are a lot of hotter pickups these days.
Feb 21 - 1:11 AM

Jodie Meeks scored 18 points with three rebounds, one assist and three steals to help the Pistons breeze past the Hornets on Tuesday.

He shot 4-of-8 from the field and made all 10 of his free throws, tying his season-high for FTs made. Meeks is shooting just 40.5 percent this season but he's crept into standard-league value over the past five games by averaging 13.6 points, 0.6 threes, 2.0 boards, 1.6 assists and 1.0 steals. He's a decent waiver-wire pickup if those numbers appeal to you.
Feb 10 - 9:37 PM

Jodie Meeks hit 8-of-12 shots in Friday's win, finishing with 18 points with two rebounds and no other stats in 25 minutes.

Meeks had been slumping but picked up the pace on Wednesday with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) missing most the game. Tonight, he took some minutes from a mostly healthy KCP (23 minutes) and he is worth a look as a pickup, keeping in mind we haven't seen a lot out of him this year. He still didn't hit any threes last night, making him 19-of-76 in 2015, and when that number corrects itself he'll probably be a hot pickup.
Feb 7 - 1:23 AM

Jodie Meeks picked up some extra run against the Pacers on Wednesday, finishing with 13 points, one rebound, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) had some soreness and did not return. KCP was on the bench in the second half, so it doesn't look like a serious injury. Meeks has been quiet lately, so there's little reason to pick him up based on tonight.
Feb 4 - 9:30 PM

Jodie Meeks failed to score in just 19 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope went nuts tonight, scoring 28 points, hitting six 3-pointers and racking up a massive stat line, so Meeks simply watched from the bench. He'll bounce back, but at this point, we'd rather own KCP, who is starting for the Pistons.
Feb 1 - 1:05 AM

Jodie Meeks played 34 minutes off the bench and hit just 4-of-16 shots, but also hit 10-of-11 free throws to salvage a fantasy line, that included a 3-pointer.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope started, but hit just 2-of-9 shots for four points. Meeks could be a sneaky pick up with Brandon Jennings out for the foreseeable future, but we'd like him a lot more if he were starting over KCP.
Jan 28 - 11:01 PM

Jodie Meeks plays 15 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday with four points, one rebound and one steal.

The Pistons do use a lineup of D.J. Augustin with Brandon Jennings on occasion, so there are a handful of minutes available now that all of DJA's minutes will be at point guard. Meeks hasn't hit his stride yet, but the upside for steals and dimes makes him worth a look in standard leagues.
Jan 24 - 10:26 PM

Jodie Meeks scored 15 points with two rebounds, two assists, six steals and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

He did not have a single steal in any of his previous nine, which is a shock after his 1.4 per game last year. Meeks is logging 25.4 minutes per game this month and that will be enough for him to remain owned in standard leagues.
Jan 17 - 10:42 PM

Jodie Meeks continued to slump on Monday, hitting just 4-of-10 shots (1-of-5 from deep) for nine points, two rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes off the bench.

Meeks hasn't lost confidence shooting the ball and finally got a triple to fall late, so hopefully that will crack the seal and get him back on his way. Brandon Jennings is on fire and that has kept the ball in his hands, so Meeks' touches are down and so are his minutes because of the slump. Still, Meeks has enough upside to be held in most standard formats unless it's for a mid-to-high level free agent.
Jan 16 - 10:04 PM

Jodie Meeks hit just 5-of-14 shots (including a three) on Monday against the Raptors, and also chipped in with three rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes.

Meeks is in the midst of a slump but his value is still strong enough to be held in all 12-team standard formats. When he's producing at peak levels he has a mid-round upside and he's still just 16 games into his season. And as shooters do, look for him to rebound in the near-term.
Jan 12 - 11:05 PM

Jodie Meeks made 1-of-9 from the field for seven points with one assist in 24 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.

He is really struggling from deep, making just 3-of-16 (18.8 percent) in his last four. Meeks is still getting 27 minutes per game, which is all he'll need to be a mid-round guy. He should be owned in all leagues that count 3-pointers.
Jan 10 - 10:31 PM

Jodie Meeks scored 15 points with three triples off the bench in Friday's game, hitting 6-of-13 shots with one rebound, one assist and two steals in 25 minutes.

As long as his durability hasn't been impacted by his back injury, Meeks is poised to cruise into a late-round floor with some mid-round upside. He should be owned in all standard formats. In just 10 games back, he's already returning top 45-60 value in just 24 mpg.
Jan 3 - 12:17 AM

Jodie Meeks said that he is finally getting his legs back after dropping 34 points with nine 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Magic.

"I think I'm just getting my legs back," Meeks said. "As a team, we are playing with a lot better ball movement. Everybody is excited. The bench is excited for one another so I think that is the biggest difference. Winning is definitely fun. We are having a good time." The Pistons are 5-4 since the return of Meeks and while it is unfair to expect these kinds of numbers, Meeks should still be owned in most leagues for contributions in points, assists, steals and 3-pointers.

Jodie Meeks exploded for 34 points off Detroit's bench on Tuesday, shooting 11-of-16 from the field including an incredible 9-of-11 mark from downtown.

The 27-year-old sharp-shooter was an unheralded top-50 value last season -- he may not reach those lofty heights as a reserve in Detroit, but tonight's huge game is a reminder that he must be owned in 12-team formats. He chipped in two steals and fell eight points shy of his career high, despite playing only 27 minutes in the Pistons' third straight victory.
