Jeff Teague scored 11 points with seven assists, three rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple in Friday's loss to the Lakers.
He was just 3-of-9 from the field in 33 minutes with six turnovers, but did hit all four of his free throws. Teague cooled off tonight, but he's been great for the most part this season and Pacers president Larry Bird made it clear that re-signing Teague in the offseason will be a priority. "We like Jeff. We like Jeff very much," Bird said. "We hope he’s a part of this franchise for a long time." Teague should be a top-50 option going forward with the Pacers making a playoff push. Jan 21 - 1:35 AM

Jeff Teague double-doubled with 16 points and 10 assists in Monday's 98-95 win over the Pelicans.

Teague rolled his right ankle and hobbled to the bench, but fortunately he didn't miss any time. Teague had a right ankle sprain back in November and a left ankle sprain earlier this month, but it sounds like he escaped with a minor tweak. He finished 7-of-10 from the field and hit his only free throw, adding eight rebounds and one triple in 37 minutes. Teague should be fine for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings, but his owners should double check his status just in case his ankle swells up overnight. He's yet to miss a game this season.
Jan 16 - 7:05 PM

Jeff Teague scored 14 points on 5-of-7 from the field against the Nuggets on Thursday, adding three rebounds, nine assists and six turnovers in just 25 minutes.

Despite matching his season high in turnovers, he was really the only starter to have a decent game. The offense looked horrible with the other four starters combining for just 31 points and five assists. Teague has made 63.6 percent from the field in 2017 thanks to his top-notch shot selection right now, so he could keep it going for a while.
Jan 12 - 5:19 PM

Jeff Teague scored 19 points with four rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

He suffered a very minor injury in the fourth quarter and stayed in the game. Teague continues his excellent season with career highs in assists, free throw makes, rebounds and matching his best steals average. Teague should be able to flirt with early-round value going forward.
Jan 7 - 9:44 PM

Jeff Teague scored 21 points with seven rebounds, 15 assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

Yeah, it's against the Nets, but Teague gets some credit. The assists continue to be the story for Teague, who just had a career-high 17 on Friday. Over his last five, Teague averaged 15.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 12.0 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.8 treys on 49.1 percent from the field and 85.7 percent from the line. Teague should flirt with early-round all season.
Jan 5 - 10:09 PM

Jeff Teague played through a sore ankle on Tuesday and hit 5-of-8 shots, a 3-pointer and 6-of-7 free throws for 117 points, three rebounds, eight assists and a steal in 33 minutes.

He also had five turnovers, but given that he was very questionable coming in, this was a nice showing for Teague. He's been very quiet offensively over the past several games, averaging just 12.2 points over his last five, but is also averaging 3.2 rebounds, 10.0 assists and a steal on 40 percent shooting over that stretch. Hopefully his ankle injury is behind him and he'll be ready for the Nets on Thursday.
Jan 3 - 10:45 PM

Jeff Teague (ankle) is a go for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

Teague played through the ankle injury on Sunday, and he'll likely just continue to tough this thing out. He'll get a favorable matchup against the Pistons tonight, so make sure you have him active. Aaron Brooks is no longer a viable DFS target.
Jan 3 - 6:36 PM

Jeff Teague (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Detroit.

Teague played through the left ankle injury on Sunday and finished with 12 points (5-of-9 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), nine assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes, but the history of his left ankle is a little worrying. He has sprained his left ankle in six straight seasons, including three times during the 2015-16 season alone. If he's unable to play on Tuesday, look for Monta Ellis and Aaron Brooks to pick up the slack.
Jan 2 - 8:39 PM

Jeff Teague played through a minor left ankle injury on Sunday, finishing with 12 points (5-of-9 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), nine assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes.

Teague exited just before halftime but it didn't cost him any time in the second half, and he didn't look tentative after the injury. None of Indiana's starters played more than 32 minutes with the score in hand tonight, and Teague shouldn't have any limitations vs. Detroit on Tuesday. We'll let you know if he graces the injury report over the next few days.
Jan 1 - 9:24 PM

Updating a previous report, Jeff Teague (sprained left ankle) is starting the second half of Sunday's game.

Teague left in the first half after suffering a sprained ankle, but started the second half which is a good sign. With Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) sidelined, Aaron Brooks is the backup point guard for the Pacers.
Jan 1 - 7:20 PM

Jeff Teague handed out a career-high 17 assists against the Bulls on Friday, adding seven points, six rebounds, two steals and three turnovers.

Despite many people thinking Teague would take a hit in dimes, his season average of 7.6 per game is a career high and crushes last year's 5.9. What may be another surprise is Teague actually has the ball in his hands for one more minute per game compared to last year, so the added wing talent in Paul George isn't hurting him for play-making chances. Expect him to continue to flirt with early-round value.

Jeff Teague scored 19 points with two rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He's heated up while Monta Ellis has been out, so it'll be interesting to see how Teague can perform now that he's back. Although, Teague has better efficiency with only a slight hit to his assist percentage and usage rate next to Ellis compared to without him, so Teague should still be able to flirt with early-round value.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 10:06:00 PM

Jeff Teague finally cooled off on Monday, hitting just 2-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for six points, two rebounds, five assists and three turnovers in 24 minutes.

Teague has been on fire ever since Monta Ellis went down with a groin injury and had scored between 17 and 31 points in his previous five games, while racking up gobs of assists in the process. Aaron Brooks caught fire off the bench tonight and Teague was a non-factor. He should bounce back on Wednesday against the Wizards and the good news is there are no reports of an injury.

Jeff Teague scored 31 points with five rebounds, eight assists, one block and two 3-pointers during a 109-102 loss to the Celtics on Thursday.

He was 9-of-15 from the field and made all 11 attempts from the line, which marked the third time in his career he's made more than 10 free throws without a miss. That's actually been a big story for Teague lately with 8.8 free throw attempts per game over his last five, averaging 22.2 points, 6.2 boards, 9.6 dimes, 1.2 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 treys in that span. He's on fire right now and playing next to Paul George hasn't hurt him.

Jeff Teague recorded his second consecutive double-double in a loss to New York on Tuesday, finishing with 17 points, 12 assists, seven rebounds, one block, one steal and one turnover in 37 minutes.

Teague has been a beast of late, taking advantage of Monta Ellis' (groin) absence. Tuesday's effort was Teague's third double-double in the Pacers last four games. Over that four-game stretch, he is averaging 20.0 points, 10.0 assists, and 6.5 rebounds. He has shot below 40 percent from the floor in three of his last five games, but all things considered, his fantasy owners have to be extremely pleased with his recent production.
