Jrue Holiday managed a double-double on Sunday vs. the Thunder, finishing with 11 points, 15 assists, one board, four steals and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.
He did shoot just 4-of-12 from the field and turned the ball over four times, but he was matched up against Russell Westbrook so his owners should be thrilled with this performance. Yet to miss a game this season, Holiday is rewarding owners who took a gamble on him and is showing no signs of slowing down as the Pelicans pursue a berth in the playoffs. Dec 21 - 10:05 PM

Jrue Holiday tied his season high with 30 points on 12-of-23 shooting during Sunday's overtime loss to the Warriors, adding two 3-pointers, three rebounds, nine assists and five steals.

Holiday missed the bulk of the 2013-14 season with a leg fracture but he's been a revelation for fantasy owners this year, averaging second-round fantasy value without a single DNP. He's a plus-contributor in every category but rebounds (3.3 per game) and blocks (0.5), and even his 1.9 turnovers per game are efficient for a starting point guard.
Dec 14 - 9:33 PM

Jrue Holiday scored a season-high 30 points to go along with 10 assists, three steals and five 3-pointers on 12-of-22 shooting.

The Mavericks are a mess at point guard and Holiday took advantage of it tonight. He's having a nice season, but could take a step to the next level if he could post a line like this once a week.
Dec 11 - 12:50 AM

Jrue Holiday had 22 points, four 3-pointers, four rebounds, eight assists and a rare block as the Pelicans cruised past the Lakers in L.A. on Sunday.

Holiday is averaging 14.8 points, 1.0 threes, 3.3 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 1.2 steals per game, and he has room for growth as the Pelicans' unquestioned PG of the future (he's owed a combined $22.9 million for the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons). His fantasy value isn't touted often enough, as he's quietly producing at a top-50 level in 9-cat leagues when you factor in his meager 1.8 turnovers per game.
Dec 8 - 12:20 AM

Jrue Holiday helped close the door on Saturday's 106-94 win over the Jazz with 19 points, six rebounds, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He made Trey Burke look like he belonged in the D-League and just roasted him late. Holiday is really starting to come on and he's going to have some extra shots come his way with Eric Gordon (shoulder) out. He's been a top-10 guard before and that's possible this season.
Nov 23 - 2:13 AM

Jrue Holiday hit 9-of-10 shots in the Pelicans' 139-91 beatdown of the Wolves on Friday, finishing with 24 points, nine assists and two 3-pointers.

The Pelicans never let up from start to finish so everybody got to eat tonight. Anthony Davis scored 22 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks, Tyreke Evans posted 16 points, six boards, seven assists, four steals and a trey, and Ryan Anderson hit four threes on his way to 16 and six. And if you saw Austin Rivers with an 8-for-9 shooting night for 17 points and a relatively full stat line, it's pretty easy to understand what was going on here.
Nov 15 - 1:48 AM

Jrue Holiday made 8-of-17 from the field for 17 points with one rebound, five assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer against the Lakers on Wednesday.

He's hit his stride on offense with at least 15 points, one triple and five dimes in each of his last four games. The Pelicans are playing with some nice pace and Holiday has great weapons around him in the starting lineup, so he should be a must-start guy as long as he's healthy.
Nov 13 - 12:30 AM

Jrue Holiday posted a double-double against the Spurs on Saturday with 15 points, three rebounds, 11 assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He did a nice job controlling the tempo on both sides of the spectrum. Holiday has a lot of weapons around him and 10 of his dimes went to Anthony Davis, Eric Gordon or Tyreke Evans tonight. As long as he's healthy, he looks like he'll be a top-15 point guard in fantasy leagues.
Nov 9 - 1:57 AM

Jrue Holiday looked solid in a win against Charlotte on Tuesday by finishing with 16 points, nine assists, one rebound, one block, and one 3-pointer.

This was his first back-to-back set since January, so it was good to see him active Tuesday. Holiday is appearing to make strides every day and should keep improving as long as he doesn't have any setbacks. He is a must-start player in all formats.
Nov 4 - 11:24 PM

Jrue Holiday will play his first back-to-back since January when the Pelicans face the Hornets on Tuesday.

After playing just 34 games last year, Holiday is ready to take the step of playing his first back-to-back since a stress fracture in his right tibia ended his 2013-14 season.. "I think I progress every day,'' Holiday said. ’’I definitely getting more comfortable running and jumping over a longer period of time. I think I’m getting better. I guess you’re going to be put in situations where it’s a back to back, it’s just the way the league is." Holiday has had a slow start to the 2014-15 regular season, but his fantasy owner should remain patient as the 24-year-old is still getting back to full speed.
Nov 4 - 12:04 PM

Jrue Holiday improved against the Mavericks on Saturday with 24 points, four rebounds, six assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He looks like he's close to 100 percent and was getting plenty of clean looks. That'll be the case for Holiday more often than not with how teams are keying in on Anthony Davis. As long as he's healthy, he should be active in all lineups.
Nov 1 - 9:35 PM

Jrue Holiday needed stitches above his right eye after a collision during Tuesday's game, but he quickly returned to finish with eight points, two rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block.

This was Holiday's first regular season game since going down with a leg injury in early January, but he's been playing without restrictions throughout the preseason and looked fine in 27 minutes tonight. He raised his FG percentage to a career-high 44.7 percent before going down last season, and his combination of excellent assists and steals makes him an underrated mid-round PG. Just keep an eye on his role for a few weeks, as Tyreke Evans handled the ball more often than not tonight.

Jrue Holiday returned to Tuesday's game after he received stiches above his eye.

He had a laceration above his eye after colliding with Elfrid Payton so he should be fine. We will update his status as needed.
Oct 28 - 9:54 PM

Jrue Holiday (leg) said that he's 80 percent healthy to start the regular season.

"I’m maybe 80 percent," Holiday said on Monday. "I think I’m to the point where I can play and I can play hard, and I can give you some good minutes."This isn't exactly music to fantasy owners' ears as Holiday prepares to play his first regular season game since January due to his leg injury. The 24-year-old will presumably inch closer to 100 percent as the season progresses, but fantasy owners may need to temper their expectations in the early going.
Oct 28 - 1:03 PM

Jrue Holiday made 6-of-9 from the field against the Thunder on Thursday for 14 points with two rebounds, five assists, three steals and one turnover.

His leg injury from last season left a sour taste in fantasy owners' mouths, but Jrue is a highly capable point guard, especially in fantasy leagues. He's gone on stretches as a top-three fantasy point guard and certainly could be a No. 1 point guard this year. Although, the risk makes Holiday a nice target in the middle rounds.
