Eric Bledsoe hit 10-of-19 shots and five 3-pointers on his way to 27 points, five rebounds, four assists and five steals in Saturday's blowout 138-109 loss to the Warriors.
You hardly hear Bledsoe's name this season or see him in the highlight shows, but he's killing it, averaging 22.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 2.4 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 3-pointers over his last five games. He's returning fourth-round value for the season in leagues that don't count turnovers, and his value appears to be climbing right now. Dec 4 - 1:42 AM

The Suns are looking to add more passing into their offense.

"It’s been stagnant at times," Eric Bledsoe said of the team’s passing. "But at the end of the day, everybody is happy with how the offense is going. The heart of our team is me, Brandon and Devin. We’re going to have the ball the majority of times." The Suns are 29th in dimes per game and lead the NBA in unassisted baskets per game. There shouldn't be much change overall, but more dimes could add more fantasy value to the Phoenix guards.

Eric Bledsoe went off for a career-high 35 points Sunday, adding four 3-pointers, six rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and three turnovers in 40 minutes.

This was Bledsoe's 10th career 30-point game, and the four 3-pointers also tied a career-high. He got off to a slow start this year, but he's been a top-50 play over the past six with averages of 22.7 points, 6.3 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.8 treys and 4.0 turnovers per game while his usage rate has spiked to 32.5. This hot streak does happen to coincide with T.J. Warren (head) hitting the sidelines, but it would be surprising to see a significant drop-off in production when T.J. gets back.
Nov 27 - 7:06 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 23 points during a 98-85 loss to the Wolves on Friday, adding six rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, seven turnovers and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

Since he was semi-benched with only 13 minutes on Nov. 18, Bledsoe is surging again. In those four, he averaged 23.8 points, 7.3 boards, 6.8 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.8 blocks, 1.8 treys and 4.5 turnovers. Although, those turnovers are really high and coach Earl Watson was not happy with his team turning it over 26 times tonight. Still, Bledsoe is trending up after a brutal start.
Nov 26 - 1:54 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 27 points against the 76ers during a 120-105 loss on Saturday, adding five rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

He was hot in the first half with 20 points, but garbage time kept him in check. Bledsoe badly needed a good game three of his last four resulting in single-digit scoring games. He's off to a terrible start with only 10th-round value in standard leagues, but he's an obvious buy-low guy.
Nov 19 - 10:59 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored six points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two turnovers in 13 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

He may have tweaked something based on some his expression on the bench, but coach Earl Watson may have just wanted to roll with his second unit anyway. Bledsoe's sub-par defense lately has been a thorn in the Suns' side and Watson didn't seem to be happy about it. He'll get his minutes back at some point, so he's a bit of a buy-low target with some issues in his last four.
Nov 18 - 9:59 PM

Eric Bledsoe finished Wednesday's road loss with more turnovers (six) than shot attempts (four).

Bledsoe had eight points, five assists, three rebounds and three steals, but he was iced out offensively for most of the night by Devin Booker (18 shot attempts) and Brandon Knight (20 attempts). He still logged 34 minutes tonight and should resume his normal workload vs. the Pacers on Friday.
Nov 17 - 12:36 AM

Eric Bledsoe played 35 minutes against the Pistons on Wednesday, scoring 21 points with 11 rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer.

He's officially rolling with a 25.3 usage rate and a 66.7 true shooting percentage in his last four. Bledsoe's regular averages look really nice in that span with 22.0 points, 6.0 boards, 4.5 assists, 0.5 steals and 1.3 treys. His minutes are right where they need to be at 32.8 per game in that run, so hopefully he can stay healthy this year. The weight loss this summer seems to be helping him.
Nov 10 - 1:58 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 31 points on 9-of-13 shooting in Tuesday's 124-121 loss to the Blazers.

His previous season high for points was 21, so this could be a sign that he's getting his legs under him. Bledsoe added four rebounds, four assists and two treys in 31 minutes, hitting 11-of-12 from the line. He's a buy-low candidate, but his price will jump significantly after tonight.
Nov 9 - 1:14 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 17 points with seven rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers and three turnovers against the Pelicans on Friday.

He's playing some terrific ball despite his shot not falling. Thanks to making 68 percent at the rim, Bledsoe has made 43.5 percent from the field on the season. As long as he's healthy, he should be an early-round player.
Nov 5 - 12:27 AM

Eric Bledsoe hit a fadeaway 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat the Blazers 118-115 in overtime on Wednesday, finishing with 20 points, seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, three turnovers and four fouls in 40 minutes.

He also hit a go-ahead layup with 1.1 seconds left in regulation, but he Blazers tied it after that with a genius play from coach Terry Stotts. Bledsoe is getting a whopping 35.0 minutes per game this year, averaging 17.2 points, 6.2 boards, 5.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 treys. The Suns are also sitting at No. 3 in pace, so Bledsoe is logging a ton of possessions in a favorable system. As long as he stays healthy, his fantasy owners will be pleased with his output.
Nov 3 - 2:43 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 17 points against the Thunder on Friday, adding five rebounds, six assists, three steals and one turnover in 38 minutes.

He went coast-to-coast a few times in this game and looked 100 percent healthy. Bledsoe did have to give up some shots to up-and-comer Devin Booker and he did miss all seven shots from deep. Whatever happens with the Suns, Bledsoe should still put up nice value as long as he's healthy.
Oct 28 - 11:50 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored nine points with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and five turnovers on Friday night.

His assist rate did take a bit of a hit with his minutes next to Devin Booker, but it's not a strong enough correlation to draw any conclusions. Even if the rate does drop, Bledsoe lost weight and the Suns are absolutely flying in pace of play to negate that possible lost. The bottom line is Bledsoe's biggest risk remains his injury history and his prospective owners can still pounce in the early rounds.
Oct 22 - 1:10 AM

The Suns are reportedly uninterested in trading away Eric Bledsoe.

Bledsoe's value is at a low point right now, so it's not surprising that they aren't fielding offers for him. Still, the Suns are currently in a strange place carrying the contracts of guys like Bledsoe, Brandon Knight and Tyson Chandler while also needing to find minutes for Alex Len, Devin Booker and Archie Goodwin. At the moment, if someone is to be traded Knight seems the most likely to go, but there's currently nothing on the table in Phoenix. Bledsoe is the ultimate risk-reward pick, but if he could just manage to stay healthy, he could be on a lot of winning teams this year.

Eric Bledsoe scored three points in 18 minutes against the Spurs on Monday, adding four rebounds, four assists, three steals and one turnover.

He's lost some weight and may be making some minor adjustments to his offensive repertoire. Bledsoe takes a lot of contact due to his playing style, so maybe his lighter self can up his durability. He'll be starting next to Devin Booker with Brandon Knight backing him up. Bledsoe is a risky early-round pick due to his injury history.
