Eric Bledsoe scored nine points on 2-of-10 from the field against the Pacers on Saturday with nine rebounds, five assists and six turnovers in 25 minutes.
It was one of his worst games of the season, but the Suns bench did their thing to get the win. Bledsoe came in hot over his last 10 games, making 50.5 percent from the field to go with averages of 14.1 points, 4.6 boards, 5.2 assists and 1.3 steals. He'll be better against the Raptors on Monday. Nov 22 - 11:12 PM

Eric Bledsoe took care of business against the 76ers on Friday with 13 points, five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes.

This game was over in the third quarter despite the 76ers actually leading 27-26 at the end of the first. Bledsoe was booed for his comments about the University of Kentucky being able to beat the 76ers and he also got into it with Nerlens Noel, a former UK Wildcat. He is going to have some ups and downs, but Bledsoe should be an early-mid round guy in standard leagues.

Eric Bledsoe hit 6-of-11 shots for 18 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.

It looks like it's his turn to get hot, after Isaiah Thomas was cooking for the first week or two, and then gave way to the hot hand of Goran Dragic. Dragic had 12 points and four assists tonight, while Thomas continued his recent quiet ways with five points on 1-of-9 shooting off the bench. Jeff Hornacek is going to ride the player on the best streak all season, making it very tough for any of these guys to be fully reliable. Hey, IT2 - you're up next.

Eric Bledsoe said he would take the University of Kentucky over the Sixers in a seven-game series.

"I'll definitely take Kentucky," Bledsoe said. "I think Philly would probably get maybe one game." Kentucky just dominated No. 5 Kansas by 32 on Tuesday while the 76ers have lost games by an average of 16.9 points per game and have a putrid 88.3 offensive efficiency rating -- no team has been below 92 since 2003-04. The former Kentucky Wildcat will take on the 76ers on Friday and plenty of good seats are still available.

Eric Bledsoe said he is fine making sacrifices as part of the Suns' three-guard rotation with Isaiah Thomas and Goran Dragic.

Though still adjusting to playing off the ball more, Eric Bledsoe said he's OK with the Suns' guard rotation. "Some games it's a struggle and some games it goes well," the 24-year-old said. "You just have to stick with it. It's tough, but at the end of the day it's about the team. It's about making sacrifices." Bledsoe's game-to-game numbers have fluctuated due to the guard rotation, but fantasy owners still have to be happy with his averages as he's been a top-40 player thus far.

Eric Bledsoe bounced back on Monday against the Celtics during a 118-114 win with 15 points, five rebounds, seven assists, three steals and three turnovers.

He didn't make any field goal attempts on Saturday and had a few big plays late to help the Suns get to 6-5 following the win tonight. Bledsoe might sit in some stretches this season because of the Suns having so much depth, but the stats should be there. He'll be more of an early-mid round guy.

Eric Bledsoe didn't make any of his six shots from the field for one point with six rebounds, 10 assists and three steals in 34 minutes against the Clippers, his former team.

The Suns backcourt has been a huge headache on the year and Bledsoe has been up-and-down. He's still likely going to get his chances to make plays and should be a mid-round fantasy asset.
Nov 16 - 3:07 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting (3-of-7 3PTs, 3-of-3 FTs) with a career-high tying 11 boards, five assists, one steal and one block in Friday's loss to the Hornets.

Bledsoe had just two turnovers and like fellow starter Goran Dragic he's going to struggle with the Suns' overall improvement and depth. He profiles as a mid-round value with some early round upside if he can press forward while Dragic is stuck in the mud.
Nov 15 - 3:08 AM

Eric Bledsoe did not play down the stretch against the Nets on Wednesday, finishing with 11 points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and seven turnovers.

The turnovers were probably why he was benched while Gerald Green and Isaiah Thomas were too hot to take out of the lineup. The Suns have a lot of depth in the backcourt, so just about any guard on their roster will have a bad night here and there. Bledsoe should bounce back on Friday against the Hornets.
Nov 13 - 1:17 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 23 points on 9-of-19 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two blocks in Friday's double-overtime loss to the Kings.

Bledsoe still turned the ball over five times but it looks like he and Goran Dragic got their sea legs back tonight. Owners hopefully accounted for a few less touches this season when they drafted, and in general there will probably be more variance in his production from night to night, because Jeff Hornacek will ride the hot hand with a deeper roster.
Nov 8 - 3:36 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored a team-high 23 points against the Grizzlies on Wednesday to go with five rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers and nine turnovers.

The nine turnovers are bad and he did rank dead last on the team in plus-minus at minus 20. Bledsoe and the Suns have so much depth at guard that there are going to be a lot of different guys going off each night. The fast pace does help, though.
Nov 6 - 1:17 AM

Eric Bledsoe was limited to 21 minutes vs. the Lakers on Tuesday, scoring six points on 2-of-4 FGs and 2-of-3 FTs, with zero rebounds, one assist, zero steals and one block.

Yikes. Bledsoe was in early foul trouble tonight, but he's averaging 11.0 points in the Suns' first four games and he's topped 30 minutes just once, which isn't what most fantasy owners anticipated when drafting him in the third round. Phoenix signed him to a five-year, $70 million extension this summer and he can only get better from here, so fantasy owners shouldn't overreact to a quiet first 10 days of the season.
Nov 5 - 1:41 AM

Eric Bledsoe had 10 points in Saturday's surprising 118-91 loss to the Jazz, adding four rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block in 29 minutes.

Goran Dragic was not much better with 10 points, four boards, one assist and two turnovers. Fantasy owners can chalk this up to the ol' back-to-back on the road and expect Bledsoe to go off against the Lakers on Tuesday.
Nov 2 - 2:24 AM

Jeff Hornacek would like Eric Bledsoe to gamble a little less on defense.

He's great at reading the play and he does go for some steals," Hornacek said. "He's strong and he gets his hands on it. He gets it. He's got that quick first step that allows a guy to get steals. We don't want him to gamble unnecessarily, but he's a guy that we kind of have to, when we have our defensive principles, let him go a little bit because he does have a good read on it." Bledsoe will defend guys who are both bigger and smaller than he is because he brings so much at that end of the floor.
Oct 30 - 3:29 PM

Eric Bledsoe is entering the 2014-15 season with a new determination, according to head coach Jeff Hornacek.

Bledsoe was ejected during the third quarter of Wednesday's win over the Lakers, but he had a strong performance of 16 points, nine assists, six rebounds, and three treys before his ejection. "He's pretty determined this year," Hornacek said. "Glad the contract thing is all up and he just wants to prove he's one of the best players in the league." As long as Bledsoe stays healthy this season, Hornacek could expand his comment to say that Bledsoe is one of the best fantasy point guards in the league too.
