Greivis Vasquez made 5-of-6 shots including 3-of-3 triples to finish Tuesday's game with 14 points off the bench, his highest-scoring performance since Feb. 6.

James Johnson (six points in 26 minutes) is locking down the starting SF job and Vasquez isn't an appealing fantasy option as long as Johnson, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry are all healthy. Toronto's offense has flagged lately but their real liability has been defense -- Raptors' opponents are shooting 45.6 percent from the field this season, the worst mark of any playoff-bound team other than the Heat.

Greivis Vasquez played 22 minutes off the bench with six points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

He was roasted on defense and this bad game is going to sting. Vasquez played almost all of his minutes at point guard and that might continue with Lou Williams (ankle) out. He's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Feb 22 - 12:30 AM

Greivis Vasquez shifted to the bench for Sunday's game against the Spurs and played just 16 minutes, finishing with five points, two boards, two assists and one 3-pointer.

James Johnson moved into the starting lineup and notched 20 points on the night, so it would be surprising to see coach Dwane Casey alter his lineup after such an impressive win over the Spurs. Vasquez can now be dropped in most leagues due to his reduced role, and he will likely need Kyle Lowry to go down with an injury in order for him to pop up on the radar in standard leagues again.
Feb 8 - 9:39 PM

Greivis Vasquez will move back to the bench for Sunday's game against the Spurs with James Johnson replacing him in the starting lineup.

Vasquez averages just 9.1 points and 3.5 assists off the bench this season, so owners in most leagues should go ahead and start looking elsewhere for production. Unless Kyle Lowry goes down with an injury, Vasquez belongs on the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Feb 8 - 6:47 PM

Greivis Vasquez played just 21 minutes and had five points and one assist on 2-of-5 shooting Wednesday.

Terrence Ross (23 points, five 3-pointers) caught fire off the bench, which made it tough for Vasquez to get much run tonight. Ross appears to be better suited for a bench role and is worth a look after this one, while Vasquez is also intriguing since he's starting. GV has cooled off in his last four games, scoring eight or fewer points in three of them, while Ross seems to be coming on.
Feb 4 - 10:51 PM

Greivis Vasquez started at shooting guard again and had 18 points, four rebounds, six assists, a steal and four 3-pointers on 7-of-9 shooting in 31 minutes on Wednesday.

After a slow start to his starting tenure, Vasquez has hit double digits in scoring in three of his last four games, and is averaging 10.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five. And that includes a dud of three points on 1-of-8 shooting a week ago. If you need a shooting guard and Mario Chalmers isn't available, think about grabbing Vasquez.
Jan 29 - 12:01 AM

Greivis Vasquez played 28 minutes on Tuesday but had only seven points, four rebounds and four assists in the Raptors' 104-91 victory.

He shot 2-of-6 from the field and has taken more than 10 shots just three times in January. DeMar DeRozan's return has ensured that Vasquez's usage rate won't improve despite his newly-minted starting job. Consider him a low-end option who can help with 3-pointers and assists, but little else.
Jan 27 - 9:53 PM

Greivis Vasquez started Wednesday's game in Memphis, but finished with only three points on 1-of-8 shooting in the Raptors' road loss.

Vasquez logged 22 minutes and he's been underwhelming since overtaking Terrence Ross for a starting job. He chipped in two steals tonight and deep-league owners may find him to be a worthwhile gamble, but everyone should avoid him while Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, James Johnson and Ross are all healthy.
Jan 21 - 11:37 PM

Greivis Vasquez started at shooting guard in Monday's win, scoring 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with two rebounds, three assists and one triple in 31 minutes of action.

Vasquez isn't a good bet to produce more than this with the Raptors at full strength so he's only worth a look in deeper formats.
Jan 20 - 12:51 AM

Greivis Vasquez will draw the start over Terrence Ross for Monday's game against the Bucks.

Vasquez made five previous starts this season when DeMar DeRozan was injured, and averaged 12.2 points and 4.8 assists on 44 percent shooting during that span. While coach Dwane Casey didn't indicate whether or not the move was permanent, Vasquez is worth a look in most leagues as longs as he holds onto the starting spot.
Jan 19 - 7:19 PM

Greivis Vasquez started the second half of Sunday's game, putting up 16 points, nine assists (season-high), four 3-pointers, two rebounds, two steals, and three turnovers.

Head coach Dwane Casey said he felt Vasquez was guarding Tyreke Evans better than any other player, which is why he decided to make the switch and send Terrence Ross to the bench. It's unclear at this point if Vasquez will stick with the starting unit, but he's struggled with consistency throughout the season, so we'd like to see another game like this one before we recommend adding him in standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 7:12 PM

Greivis Vasquez scored 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Vasquez has held very low-end value in 12-team leagues over the last two weeks and he's about as up-and-down as they come. With DeMar DeRozan's return on the horizon, owners should only look at him as a desperation option in those formats.
Jan 12 - 11:01 PM

Greivis Vasquez couldn't duplicate Friday's 25-point outburst vs. Phoenix on Sunday, missing all six of his field goals to finish with two points, two rebounds and four assists.

He turned the ball over three times in 19 minutes of action, and he's been a liability in most formats despite an increased role in DeMar DeRozan's absence. His consistent 3-pointers and assists may look good on your waiver wire, but don't overlook his poisonous shooting over Toronto's past five games -- 36.1 percent from the field and a mere 42.9 percent from the FT line.
Jan 4 - 10:37 PM

Greivis Vasquez got hot against the Warriors on Friday, scoring 25 points on 10-of-19 shooting (including five threes) with five rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 34 minutes.

This wasn't exactly a defensive game and Vasquez has been up and down for a while now. With DeMar DeRozan returning next Thursday, this seems like a bad time for owners to chase unless they're doing it as a coin flip in a daily situation.
