Jeff Teague posted 25 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a blocked shot over 34 minutes in Saturday's 122-104 win against the Bulls.
Teague hasn't been terribly aggressive on offense this season, but he is enjoying his hottest stretch of the season. He joined forces with Andrew Wiggins to try and pick up the offensive slack with Jimmy Butler (knee) on the mend. Teague is averaging 20.0 PPG, 7.0 APG, 4.0 APG and 1.4 SPG over his past contests. Next up will be a favorable matchup Monday in Sacramento, kicking off a three-game work week. Feb 24 - 11:58 PM

Jeff Teague's 25 points weren't enough in Tuesday's loss to Houston, hitting 10-of-15 shots and a perfect 3-of-3 from the line.

Teague isn't usually this aggressive on offense, but the Wolves needed him to be with Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins' shots not falling. Teague also dished out eight assists with five rebounds and two triples, and coach Tom Thibodeau didn't want to take him off the floor -- he played 38 minutes compared to 10 for Tyus Jones. He'll try to keep it going against the Lakers on Thursday, a team that has allowed the second most fantasy points to PGs this season.
Feb 13 - 11:14 PM

Jeff Teague ended up with 12 points and 10 assists over 32 minutes in Sunday's 111-106 win against the Kings.

It was the 10th double-double of the season for Teague, who also tacked on three steals and a rebound while posting a 3-pointer. He has reached 10 assists on 14 different occasions, with three of those outings coming across the past seven games dating back to Jan. 29. Teague is also working on a six-game streak with at least one 3-pointer, one short of tying a season best.
Feb 11 - 10:03 PM

Jeff Teague was limited to just nine points over 23 minutes in Friday's 114-113 road loss against the Chicago Bulls.

Teague hit 4-of-8 from the field, including 1-of-1 from behind the 3-point line, but it was Jimmy Butler who was running the show on offense with everyone else taking a backseat. Teague was able to add five assists, a steal and a rebound with just three turnovers to somewhat salvage the stat line. His scoring is down lately, as he is averaging just 7.9 PPG over the past seven outings, well below his overall season average. Despite the power outage he remains a must-start fantasy player. He'll work out of his slump and get back on track eventually.
Feb 10 - 1:34 AM

Jeff Teague handed out a season-high 15 assists during Wednesday's overtime loss in Cleveland, adding 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting.

The Wolves fell to 1-7 in their past seven road games, with an atrocious defensive rating of 119.1 in those losses. The good news is that the Cavs' defense is just as bad, so nearly anyone who took the court had an inflated stat line tonight -- Teague padded his with two 3-pointers, three rebounds, one steal and zero turnovers in 39 minutes.
Feb 8 - 12:06 AM

Jeff Teague hit just 2-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for five points, six assists, a steal and a block in Saturday's 118-107 win over the Pelicans.

Tyus Jones came off the bench for one of his best games of the year, but Teague is still the point guard to own in Minnesota, obviously. Jones had been quiet for most of the season, but blew up for 15 points in one of his highest scoring games of the season.
Feb 3 - 11:29 PM

Jeff Teague hit 6-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 14 points, three rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors.

He didn't exactly kill it, but it was a lot better than his last two games, when he hit just 1-of-16 shots and scored a total of four points. Hopefully this game gets him back on track.
Jan 30 - 10:15 PM

Jeff Teague hit 1-of-12 shots for two points, 10 assists, four steals and two crucial turnovers in Monday's 105-100 loss to the Hawks.

Teague threw a horrible, long pass that was intercepted with the Hawks holding a one-point lead late, and then failed to get the ball inbounded after a timeout, resulting in another turnover that allowed the Hawks to put the game away. Teague just doesn't look right right now, going 1-of-16 for four points over his last two games, but he was playing well before that. He's dealing with an ankle injury and the Timberwolves play again on Tuesday night at Toronto, so owners should double check to make sure he's playing tomorrow night.
Jan 29 - 10:05 PM

Jeff Teague said his ankle is "all right" and that he will play vs. the Hawks on Monday.

He scored just two points in 24 minutes vs. the Nets on Saturday and didn't play down the stretch. He wasn't aggressive either and added that he hurt his wrist "a little bit" in Thursday's game at Golden State. Despite being banged up, season-long owners can deploy him tonight.
Jan 29 - 1:31 PM

Jeff Teague is dealing with a sore ankle.

Coach Tom Thibodeau called for Teague to play in the fourth quarter against the Nets on Saturday, but Teague asked him to leave Tyus Jones in. This explains why he only saw 24 minutes with just two total points. We'll put him on the injury report to be safe, but his status for Monday's game vs. the Hawks is to be determined. If he can't go, Jones would be a solid streaming option and Jamal Crawford would see a bump in value as well.
Jan 29 - 10:50 AM

Jeff Teague finished with two points across 24 minutes in Saturday's 111-97 win against the Nets.

Teague was 0-of-4 from the field, and his only points came as a result of a 2-of-2 night from the charity stripe. He was able to add four assists, two rebounds and a steal, but it was a far cry from the season-high 30 points he dropped earlier in the week against the Clippers. The return of Jimmy Butler (knee) certainly didn't do him any favors.
Jan 28 - 1:01 AM

Jeff Teague scored a season-high 30 points in Monday's win over the Clippers, hitting 7-of-14 shots and 16-of-17 free throws.

The 16 free throws were three more than his previous career-high, but Teague wasn't done there, as he racked up six assists with three rebounds and a turnover in 34 minutes. He was in a funk coming into tonight's game with averages of 11.0 points, 6.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.7 triples on 36.8% shooting in his previous six games, and while he obviously benefitted from Jimmy Butler's (knee) absence, hopefully this a sign of things to come.
Jan 23 - 1:18 AM

Jeff Teague made 2-of-11 from the field for five points with three rebounds, 10 assists and two turnovers in 33 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

While this shooting line is tough to shallow, Teague did make plays late and coach Tom Thibodeau went with him down the stretch yet again. Tyus Jones keeps playing well for the most part and Teague hasn't exactly been thriving, but it does look like Teague has some leash to close games. He's actually a decent buy-low option, especially if Jimmy Butler needs to miss more time.
Jan 21 - 12:56 AM

Jeff Teague scored six points with five rebounds, three assists and three turnovers in 32 minutes against the Rockets on Thursday.

He got the Chris Paul treatment, but Teague was playing well coming into this game. It was also somewhat encouraging that coach Tom Thibodeau went back to Teague after a rough night, so he still has some leash. Expect him to be a mid-round point guard in standard leagues. He does get another really tough matchup against the Raptors for his next game.
Jan 18 - 11:43 PM

Jeff Teague hit 6-of-17 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, two rebounds, six assists and two steals in 35 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Magic.

Teague was coming off a big game against Portland on Sunday when he had 22 points and eight assists, but returned to form tonight. Teague hasn't shot the ball particularly well since returning from his knee injury, but then again, he's only played in four games after missing seven straight with the injury. He should be nearing 100 percent health for the second half of the season.
