Jrue Holiday hit 12-of-19 shots, four 3-pointers and 5-of-5 free throws for a season-high 33 points, six rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and three blocks in 39 minutes.
Wow. The Cavs aren't great against opposing point guards and Holiday was in full effect tonight, scoring more than 23 points for the first time this season. We're still a little worried about him being rested down the stretch if the Pelicans are no longer flirting with the playoffs, but owners should plan on riding him until he breaks down at this point. Then again, if there was ever a time to sell high on Holiday, Tuesday will be the day. Jan 23 - 11:19 PM

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the 76ers will take a "hard look" at Jrue Holiday.

The 76ers traded away Holiday to start "The Process" back in 2013, but he would be an interesting fit next to Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid in Philly. Holiday is set to become a free agent and several teams will be in the market for a PG including Philly, Orlando, New York and Sacramento, and the Pelicans are worried that he will walk this summer. It's not clear if the 76ers will entertain the idea of trading for Holiday when they can just wait until the summer to make him an offer, but this is something to keep an eye on as we approach the Feb. 23 deadline.

Jrue Holiday stole the ball five times vs. the Magic on Wednesday, while scoring 14 points with five assists, two rebounds and two blocks in just 26 minutes.

The Pelicans have "tried something new" by going small lately, and coach Alvin Gentry noted that "it increases the pace" but makes it hard to compete on the boards. New Orleans wound up with a season-high 38 fast-break points tonight, and Holiday could have had an even bigger line if the game weren't out of hand in the fourth quarter.

The 76ers will reportedly "take a hard look" at Jrue Holiday during free agency this offseason.

Holiday will be an unrestricted free agent when the offseason hits, and Holiday will be one of the more attractive point guards on the market, and he also makes sense in Philly's system as he could work off the ball next to Ben Simmons. We still have a long way to go until free agency, so this is just something to file away for later.

Jrue Holiday scored 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting with six assists, two rebounds, one steal and two triples vs. the Pacers on Monday.

Holiday only played 26 minutes because E'Twaun Moore had the hot hand off the bench Monday. His minutes are down in January and he's coming off a one-point dud in his previous outing vs. the Bulls, but this has opened up a nice buy-low opportunity for savvy fantasy owners. Holiday has early-round upside and was a monster after the All-Star break last season, so hopefully he can find his form soon. Moore is not a long-term threat.
Jan 16 - 7:53 PM

Jrue Holiday missed all seven attempts from the field against the Bulls on Saturday, adding one point, three rebounds and 12 assists in 29 minutes.

It was a bad day for Holiday for obvious reasons. He did also tweak his foot or ankle, but he didn't need to miss time. Another negative is that Tyreke Evans was really in control of the offense and had a better feel for where the weak spots of the defense were. To be clear, there's no need to worry about Holiday, but there could be an adjustment period playing with Evans. He should flirt with early-round value once he gets it going.
Jan 14 - 8:16 PM

Jrue Holiday scored 21 points with four rebounds, four assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He was in a brutal slump before this one. In his previous seven games, Holiday made just 38.7 percent from the field with averages of 11.6 points, 3.3 boards, 8.7 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.1 treys. It definitely helped to get the Nets today and there were more shots to go around with Anthony Davis (hip) out. This game could get Jrue going again.
Jan 12 - 11:01 PM

Jrue Holiday wore a clear mask at shootaround on Thursday and could wear it in games.

He will go through warmups to see if he wants to wear it instead of his goggles. "The goggles are actually just kind of cool," Holiday said. He added he doesn't think the goggles protect his orbital socket, which required surgery last year. This shouldn't affect him much.
Jan 5 - 3:13 PM

Jrue Holiday double-doubled vs. the Cavaliers on Monday with 11 points and 13 assists.

This was his second double-double in a row and it's his third game out of his last four with 11+ assists. Holiday finished just 4-of-11 from the field and 1-of-2 from the line, but he added four rebounds, three steals and two triples in 35 minutes. He has played 34 or more minutes in four straight games and we're expecting big things from him in 2017 alongside Anthony Davis and a healthy Tyreke Evans.
Jan 2 - 10:19 PM

Jrue Holiday double-doubled vs. the Knicks on Friday with 12 points and 11 assists.

He was an efficient 5-of-10 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, adding four rebounds, one steal, two blocks and one turnover in 35 minutes. Tyreke Evans' return hasn't really impacted Holiday at all, as Tim Frazier has taken the hit instead, picking up his second straight DNP-CD on Friday. Holiday is returning eighth-round value in standard leagues on the season, but we're expecting that to climb in the new year.

Jrue Holiday notched his second double-double of the season on Wednesday with 23 points and 10 assists, going 9-of-15 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line in 35 minutes.

As imposing a matchup as Russell Westbrook presents for defenses, it hasn't translated to muted lines for opposing point guards -- the Thunder are actually in the top-five for fantasy value allowed to the position (9-cat). Holiday added four boards, one steal and two 3-pointers to round out one of his better lines all season.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 11:21:00 PM

Jrue Holiday scored 12 points in a win over the 76ers on Tuesday with four rebounds, nine assists, one turnover and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

You can call that a letdown in a revenge game and against sub-par defender Sergio Rodriguez. You may remember the 76ers were fined $3 million by the league for not revealing all of Jrue Holiday's medical info when the dealt him to New Orleans for the rights to Nerlens Noel. Holiday still hasn't clicked this season and only has 14th-round value this month. He's a great buy-low player.
Tue, Dec 20, 2016 10:24:00 PM

Jrue Holiday handed out a season-high 14 assists against the Pacers on Thursday, adding 16 points, seven rebounds and two turnovers in 36 minutes.

He pushed the ball more than usual and said it was due to Tim Frazier (wrist) not being in the lineup. Holiday was on the injury report as probable for his toe injury, so his fantasy owners will have to be on the lookout for his road back-to-back on Friday. Besides that, he looks like he's about to get hot and flirt with early-round value.
Thu, Dec 15, 2016 11:32:00 PM

Jrue Holiday (toe) is in the starting lineup against the Pacers on Thursday.

He was never really in doubt to miss this game. Holiday should play big minutes tonight, especially with Tim Frazier (wrist) out. Langston Galloway will also get a nice amount of run even with Tyreke Evans (calf, knee) back. The Pelicans are also starting Buddy Hield, Solomon Hill, Anthony Davis and Alexis Ajinca.

Jrue Holiday (wrist) is probable to play against the Pacers on Thursday.

The Pelicans will start a back-to-back set here, so this may be more of an important update for Friday's game in Houston. For now, we're expecting Holiday to give it a go and he may have to play even more with Tim Frazier (wrist) listed as doubtful.
