Greivis Vasquez scored four points on 2-of-9 shooting with two rebounds and four assists in 20 minutes off the bench on Monday.
Vasquez just hasn't gotten it done during his window of opportunity and owners can feel free to move on. That said, he'll probably turn things around and level out at the low-end of 14-16 team leagues. Dec 16 - 2:11 AM

Greivis Vasquez scored 10 points with two threes, four assists and one block in 25 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Vasquez looked poised to be a late-round value after DeMar DeRozan's injury but it hasn't worked out that way. Folks were panicked after Landry Fields moved into the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Cavs and Vasquez played just 13 minutes, but that looks like it was a matchup thing. The problem has simply been Vasquez's punchless output, and he doesn't have the body of work that fellow reserve guard Lou Williams has. Feel free to move on for a hot free agent, even if Vasquez should hang around the bottom of 12-14 team formats.

Greivis Vasquez (flu) shifted to a bench role on Tuesday and finished a loss the Cavaliers with three points, two assists and one turnover in only 13 minutes.

Lou Williams isn't a natural PG so Vasquez's temporary move to the starting lineup left Toronto's bench without "the head of the snake," to use coach Dwane Casey's description of Vasquez. He's been great in DeMar DeRozan's absence and fantasy owners should monitor his role over the next game or two before dumping him back onto the waiver wire -- there are no guarantees that Landry Fields will continue starting, as this may have been a one-game change vs. LeBron James and the Cavs.

Greivis Vasquez was unexpectedly shifted to Toronto's bench on Tuesday.

Landry Fields started and the move may have been made for defensive purposes vs. the Cavaliers, so there are no guarantees that it will be permanent. Vasquez was recently called "the head of the snake of the second unit" by coach Dwane Casey, however, so there's a chance he'll return to a backup role despite DeMar DeRozan's absence.
Dec 9 - 7:19 PM

Raptors head coach Dwane Casey said Greivis Vasquez is the head of the snake of the Raptors' second unit.

"He’s kind of the head of the snake of the second unit and will proudly tell you that," Casey said. Vasquez has been starting for the Raptors with DeMar DeRozan (groin) out and has responded with averages of 16.0 points and 5.7 assists in the three games since DeRozan has gone down. Vasquez is a must-own player in all fantasy leagues while DeRozan is out.
Dec 4 - 12:30 PM

Greivis Vasquez made his third start of the season on Wednesday with 17 points, four rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He is playing more than expected and is currently picking up most of DeMar DeRozan's (groin) 34 minutes per game. Vasquez should be owned in all leagues right now.
Dec 4 - 1:33 AM

Greivis Vasquez was impressive in another start on Tuesday, scoring 11 points to go with seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

This was yet another strong showing for him, as he has really stepped up in the absence of DeMar DeRozan. Vasquez will continue to see big minutes for the foreseeable future given the fact that DeRozan has no timetable to return, so owners in standard leagues should have already picked him up by now.
Dec 3 - 12:55 AM

Greivis Vasquez stayed hot with 19 points, five assists and one steal vs. the Lakers on Sunday, making 8-of-16 shots in 34 minutes while starting in place of DeMar DeRozan (groin).

Vasquez is a career 42.4 percent shooter who has been even worse to begin the 2014-15 season, but he's on fire over Toronto's past three games. He has a green light from downtown and is capable of impressive per-minute assist totals -- with a starting job in hand, at least for now, he's worth a speculative add in most formats.
Dec 1 - 12:54 AM

Greivis Vasquez is set to replace DeMar DeRozan (groin) in the starting lineup on Sunday against the Lakers.

Vasquez is worth a look in almost all leagues as he should see a good chunk of playing time with DeRozan out indefinitely. Lou Williams and James Johnson will also see a boost in minutes off of the bench for the foreseeable future. Williams should be owned in most leagues as he has been on fire over the past two weeks, while owners should give Johnson an extended look for his ability to rack up defensive stats in a hurry.
Nov 30 - 8:38 PM

Greivis Vasquez played down the stretch against the Mavericks on Friday, finishing with 14 points, three rebounds, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

He's hot with a 21-point game on Wednesday and he looks like he'll get more run with DeMar DeRozan (groin) possibly out. Vasquez started the last time DeRozan missed a game due to injury and he's been fairly effective from a per-minute standpoint. He's worth a look in standard leagues.
Nov 29 - 12:06 AM

Greivis Vasquez was on fire against the Hawks on Wednesday with 21 points, two rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers on 8-of-12 from the field in just 17 minutes.

This is one of the most efficient lines of the year. For the advanced stats guys out there, Vasquez put up a 36.9 usage and had an 81.5 true shooting percentage. He was horrible before tonight and made just 33.3 percent from the field, so we'll obviously need to see it again.
Nov 27 - 12:47 AM

Greivis Vasquez (knee) will play against the Jazz on Saturday.

He was a game-time decision and must be feeling good to be declared as a go before pre-game warmups. Vasquez will back up Kyle Lowry and won't have too much fantasy value. if you picked up Lou Williams or wanted to use him in daily fantasy, it might be time to reconsider.
Nov 15 - 5:54 PM

Greivis Vasquez (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against Utah, and will likely be a game-time decision.

It is just a contusion so he shouldn't be in danger of missing too much time. This news will only matter for owners in deep leagues, as Vasquez would need an injury to Kyle Lowry before being considered. If Vasquez can't go, Lou Williams could see a good chunk of minutes in Toronto's backcourt, and makes for a sneaky daily play.
Nov 15 - 11:27 AM

Greivis Vasquez notched a season-high 13 points vs. the Sixers, adding one 3-pointer, four rebounds and six dimes in an easy 120-88 victory.

Plenty of players get season-highs vs. the Sixers, and Vasquez also logged a season-high 26 minutes thanks to the Raptors' insurmountable lead. This doesn't affect his fantasy outlook, in other words, which remains bleak as long as Kyle Lowry is healthy.
Nov 9 - 9:27 PM

Greivis Vasquez scored 12 points off the bench Sunday, while adding two assists, two boards, two 3-pointers, and one steal before fouling out after 25 minutes.

The Raptors needed a spark off the bench tonight, and Vasquez was exactly that. However, unless Kyle Lowry goes down with an injury, Vasquez is only an option in deeper leagues.
