Jrue Holiday was quiet on Sunday with seven points on 2-of-5 shooting, adding four assists, three rebounds and one steal in a win vs. the visiting Celtics.
Holiday logged 28 minutes but simply couldn't get going tonight, and was held scoreless in the first half. The eight-year veteran has been thriving with an expanded role since the All-Star break, and he hasn't been held to single-digit points in consecutive games all season. Expect him to come out firing vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday. Mar 18 - 9:11 PM

Jrue Holiday scored 19 on 8-of-16 shooting Saturday, to go with six rebounds, eight assists, one 3-pointer, three steals, two block and an unfortunate seven turnovers in 38 minutes.

Holiday had the hot hand early for New Orleans, and he also helped them go on a big run late to keep the game competitive, but silly turnovers were an issue that arguably cost the Pelicans the game. Holiday did get whacked in the face during the first half, which opened up a cut over his left eye, but he got right back out there after getting patched up in the locker room and we wouldn’t anticipate this being an issue that forces him to spend any time on the sidelines.
Mar 17 - 9:47 PM

Jrue Holiday hit 11-of-21 shots and three 3-pointers for 25 points, six rebounds and nine assists in 39 minutes of Tuesday's 119-115 win over the Hornets, and also committed just two turnovers.

Holiday helped the Pelicans snap a two-game losing streak tonight and New Orleans is in an intense playoff battle the rest of the way, so Holiday will need to bring his A Game every night. And that's great news for his fantasy owners. He had a four-point, two-assist dud on Friday, but has otherwise been playing at a really high level.
Mar 13 - 10:59 PM

Jrue Holiday came through with an 18-point, 10-assist double-double in Sunday's 116-99 loss to the Jazz.

Holiday also added six rebounds, three triples, two steals, one block and four turnovers through 39 minutes of floor time, and while the end result was a loss for the Pelicans, this was a solid bounce-back performance from Jrue following Friday's four-point disaster against the Wizards. This was Holiday's 66th game of the season, which triggered a $255K bonus in his contract, and he's on pace to play in the most games he has since the 2012-13 season.
Mar 11 - 7:20 PM

Jrue Holiday matched his season-low of four points on Friday vs. the Wizards, hitting 2-of-8 shots in 28 minutes.

He was a popular target in DFS, as Anthony Davis (ankle) sat this one out and Holiday has per-36 averages of 29.2 points, 3.8 boards, 8.1 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.1 blocks and 3.1 treys with both AD and DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) off the floor. Holiday couldn't salvage his line either, adding just three rebounds and two assists. He did have three blocks, though. Holiday has second-round value on the season and is crushing his ADP, so his fantasy owners should just chalk this up as an off night.
Mar 9 - 10:44 PM

Jrue Holiday scored 23 points with three rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers during a 114-101 win over the Kings on Wednesday.

He and Anthony Davis (ankle) have been tremendous together with Jrue assisting AD 10 times on Tuesday night. Davis did get hurt tonight and will get an MRI tomorrow, so Jrue could be busy. Holiday has played 160 minutes without AD and DeMarcus Cousins next to him, posting per-36 averages of 29.2 points, 3.8 boards, 8.1 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.1 blocks and 3.1 treys. The Pelicans also tied their franchise record for consecutive wins at 10.
Mar 8 - 1:41 AM

Jrue Holiday dished out a career-high 17 assists in Tuesday's win over the Clippers to go with 19 points, four rebounds, one steal, two blocks and two triples in 36 minutes.

The Pelicans have won nine straight games, and while Anthony Davis is getting all the headlines, Holiday has been a stud as well. During their streak, Holiday is averaging 25.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 8.6 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.4 triples on 52% shooting. His defense has been just as good and he's returning second-round value in 9-category leagues on the season.
Mar 7 - 1:17 AM

Jrue Holiday's hot streak continued on Sunday with 30 points on 12-of-19 shooting, seven assists, three rebounds and two 3-pointers.

Holiday's career-high 49.5% shooting ranks eighth in the NBA among guards -- among players averaging at least 30 minutes, he trails only Klay Thompson, Darren Collison, Ben Simmons and teammate E'Twaun Moore (seven points, two assists in 30 minutes). Jrue has made at least half of his FG attempts in six consecutive games, and he's tied a career-best streak with 20+ points in eight straight. He's carrying plenty of owners into the fantasy playoffs.
Mar 4 - 10:00 PM

Jrue Holiday helped lead the Pelicans to victory on Sunday, popping off for 36 points, nine boards, six dimes, two triples, one steal, one block and two turnovers in 42 minutes of action.

Holiday really struggled through the first half of action, but he dominated the second half and overtime, scoring 26 of his 36 points while rocking a ridiculous 44.6 usage rate. This was Holiday's fifth straight 20+ point performance, and the sixth time this season he had 30 points or more, which accounts for the most 30-point games he's had in a single season. After struggling with injuries and various restrictions over the past four seasons, he's finally healthy and having himself a career-year.
Feb 25 - 6:49 PM

Jrue Holiday scored 29 points with seven rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Heat on Friday.

He hit the game-winning bucket and coach Alvin Gentry gets some props for that. Gentry said Jrue was dumping off to Anthony Davis in the final few minutes, and told him the Heat were leaving space to attack the rim. Holiday used that advice and was able to connect for a pull-up. He's having a terrific season.
Feb 23 - 11:38 PM

Jrue Holiday hit 8-of-16 shots and 5-of-5 free throws for 21 points, three rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and a block in 35 minutes of Monday's win over the Pistons.

He didn't hit a 3-pointer but the 12 dimes were a season high and he racked up his third double-double of the season tonight. The Pelicans are a much better team on nights when both Holiday and Rajon Rondo are playing well, and have won two straight games with both of them (and Anthony Davis) hot.
Feb 12 - 10:09 PM

Jrue Holiday scored nine points with one rebound, two blocks and three turnovers in 23 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

He was really the only one to show up on defense in the first quarter as the Pelicans fell behind 32-14 after one. Holiday has been one of the more consistent players in the league and he's a decent bet for 20 points per game in the rest of the way with loaded stat lines. Regardless of if Rajon Rondo comes off the bench, Holiday will get his in the post-Boogie era.
Feb 9 - 9:27 PM

Jrue Holiday hit 13-of-21 shots and two 3-pointers for 28 points, five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 33 minutes of Monday's loss to the Jazz.

He hit just 3-of-13 shots on Saturday and 5-of-15 shots on Friday, so it was nice to see him break out of the funk tonight. He's having a monster season, returning third-round fantasy value and will look to keep it going against the Pacers on Wednesday.
Feb 5 - 11:26 PM

Jrue Holiday hit just 3-of-13 shots for nine points, five rebounds, nine assists, a steal and two blocks in Saturday's loss to Minnesota.

Holiday has struggled in his last two games and has hit just 8-of-28 shots over his last two. He was on fire prior to that, and this has to be looked at as nothing more than a mini-slump, although the steal, two blocks and dimes were great. He'll bounce back offensively against Ricky Rubio and the Jazz on Monday, so don't back off of him.
Feb 3 - 11:20 PM

Jrue Holiday finished with 20 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and a steal while also blocking three shots across 37 minutes Sunday against the Clippers.

Holiday seems to be embracing his new role, as he'll be the secondary scoring option in the Crescent City behind Anthony Davis with DeMarcus Cousins done for the season. The guard was 7-of-15 from the field while going 5-of-5 from the free-throw stripe. The biggest surprise was the blocked shots, and you shouldn't count on that being a regular thing. But the 6'4 guard stepped up and did his best Boogie imitation at the defensive end in this one.
