Eric Bledsoe came up short against his former teammate, Goran Dragic, during a 115-98 loss on Monday with 20 points, four boards, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.
He had a very slow start tonight and picked it up late. However, Bledsoe's team was lit up on the outside on defense and that's been a trend lately. Bledsoe has been a disappointment in most games since the trade deadline, but there is still a very good chance he turns it on late. In his previous games without Dragic, he averaged 17.2 points, 7.7 boards 6.5 boards, 1.2 blocks, 1.3 steals and 1.0 treys in those six. That's still pretty good. Mar 2 - 11:25 PM

Eric Bledsoe was on the other end of the spectrum on Saturday during a 101-74 loss to the Spurs with 12 points, six rebounds, no assists and two turnovers.

Brandon Knight went down tonight, which actually might hurt Bledsoe a tad. In fact, Bledsoe was making a sterling 70.0 effective field goal percentage off Knight passes before tonight. Basically, fantasy owners can throw this game out the window for every Sun. Alex Len (six points and nine boards), P.J. Tucker (five points and 11 boards) and Markieff Morris (10 points and two boards) also didn't play well.

Eric Bledsoe was a superstar against the Thunder on Thursday during a 117-113 overtime win, making 11-of-16 from the field for 28 points with 13 rebounds, nine assists, one steal, four blocks and two 3-pointers.

That's good for an effective field goal percentage of 75.0. In what was a very uptempo game, Bledsoe seemed to be in total control, which has been the story for his game lately. In his last six games, Bledsoe averaged 20.7 points, 7.3 boards, 7.2 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.3 blocks and 1.3 treys on 50.6 percent from the field. People don't call him Mini-LeBron for no reason.
Feb 27 - 2:48 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 21 points on 8-of-18 shooting (including two threes) with seven rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one block and six turnovers in Monday's home loss to the Celtics.

With Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas out and just Brandon Knight coming in, don't be surprised if Bledsoe posts first and second round value in 8- and 9-cat leagues, respectively.
Feb 24 - 1:10 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 12 points on 4-of-11 shooting (no threes) with seven rebounds and six assists in Friday's loss.

Bledsoe's stock improved with Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas heading out, but with Brandon Knight and Marcus Thornton heading in there's only so much he can gain in fantasy leagues.
Feb 21 - 1:35 AM

Eric Bledsoe returned from a one-game personal absence to finish Tuesday's 118-127 loss to the Rockets with a team-high 32 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block.

Bledsoe has been hot offensively and he didn't cool off while missing Sunday's game, as he finished 9-of-19 from the field and 12-of-13 from the FT line vs. Houston. Fantasy owners have to be excited about Bledsoe's production as he's piled up top-30 value in 9-cat leagues, and is in the top-20 when you ignore turnovers. Expect more of the same after the break, especially with Phoenix clawing their way toward a playoff berth.
Feb 10 - 11:29 PM

Eric Bledsoe will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

Bledsoe missed Sunday's game against the Kings due to the birth of his child, but he'll be back in action on Tuesday. He'll have a favorable matchup in what will be a very fast-paced game, and he looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues. His return to the lineup will hurt the value of Isaiah Thomas.
Feb 10 - 5:56 PM

Eric Bledsoe is expected to return for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

He missed Sunday due to the birth of his child. The Suns lost their fourth game of the season on a buzzer-beating shot in Sacramento on Sunday and Bledsoe probably would have made the difference. His fantasy owners can lock him into their lineups this week. Expect to see less output from Isaiah Thomas.
Feb 9 - 3:51 PM

Eric Bledsoe (personal) will not play on Sunday against the Kings, and Isaiah Thomas will replace him in the starting lineup.

He's not in Sacramento due to the birth of his child, so his owners can breathe easy knowing that he isn't injured. The Suns play the Rockets on Tuesday, and it's likely that Bledsoe will be back in time for that one. Thomas should be in line for a nice game in a favorable matchup with the Kings, so owners in daily leagues should give him a long look. Expect Goran Dragic and Gerald Green to see more minutes as well.
Feb 8 - 7:47 PM

Eric Bledsoe turned the ball over six times against the Blazers during a 108-87 loss on Thursday, scoring 17 points with seven rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer.

He made a 3-pointer for the 13th consecutive game tonight and he's made some strides from there as the year has gone along. Bledsoe is putting up early round fantasy value thanks to two steals per night in 2015. His boards, assists and field goal percentage are also climbing, so his owners can just enjoy the ride.
Feb 6 - 1:14 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, eight assists, four steals and two blocks in the Suns' tough 102-101 loss to the Grizzlies on Monday.

The three-headed point guard continues to be one of the best shows around and it's paying dividends in fantasy leagues after a rough start. Goran Dragic added 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a three, and Isaiah Thomas was lethal in the fourth quarter on a 24-point night. The Suns fell apart in the final moments against a solid Grizzlies squad, but they're going to be a tough out in the loaded West as they continuously improve.
Feb 3 - 3:41 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting (2-of-3 from deep, 5-of-5 from the line) with four rebounds, six assists and three steals in the Suns' 99-93 win over the Bulls on Friday.

The Suns' three-headed point guard experiment is working and at 16-6 over their past 22 games, they look plenty happy as a squad. Goran Dragic added 21 points on 9-of-18 shooting with two rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and one three, and Markieff Morris went for 12 and 14 with three assists in the win.
Jan 31 - 3:10 AM

Eric Bledsoe filled the stat sheet against the Rockets during a 113-111 loss on Friday, scoring 25 points with eight rebounds, nine assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

He's coming off a 33-point game from Wednesday and is on a non-Klay tear right now. In each of the three months this season, Bledsoe's points, assists and steals have gone up while his turnovers have gone down. The Suns didn't overpay him, apparently. He'll get a great matchup against the Clippers on Sunday.
Jan 24 - 1:20 AM

Eric Bledsoe hit 11-of-22 shots, a 3-pointer and 10-of-15 free throws for a career-high 33 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and three steals in 34 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Blazers.

That's a season high in points for Bledsoe, who has increased his scoring in each of his last five games. Isaiah Thomas came off the bench for 27 points and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes, while starter Goran Dragic added 16 points, four assists and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes. Thomas is coming on again, so it wouldn't be surprising to suddenly see Dragic or Bledsoe start to struggle a bit, but that was not the case tonight.
Jan 22 - 12:44 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting with five rebounds, 10 assists and three treys in Friday's loss to the Spurs.

The Suns' point guards are producing and even making some amends for slow starts in fantasy leagues. Bledsoe has been a second round value this year, Goran Dragic (17 points, four assists) has been a top-50 play, and Isaiah Thomas (11 points, four assists) has been in the top-75.
