Eric Bledsoe was good for 20 points, four rebounds and three steals with an assist across 35 minutes in Saturday's 117-100 win against the Jazz.
Bledsoe is enjoying his most productive stretch since arriving in Cream City, posting his first three-game stretch with 20 or more points. He is also working on a 10-game stretch with at least one 3-pointer, and he has a 12-game run with at least one steal. Even when he isn't putting up big point totals he is chipping in across the board in multiple categories. Dec 10 - 1:45 AM

Eric Bledsoe posted 19 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in Saturday's win against the Kings.

After a bit of a shaky start to his tenure in Cream City, Bledsoe has started to settle down. He has hit at least one 3-pointer in each of his past six outings while averaging 21.2 points, 4.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 2.8 steals per contest. He continues to put up outstanding numbers despite playing next to a huge talent like Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Eric Bledsoe scored 25 points with one rebound, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

He's still be able to put up solid numbers next to Giannis Antetokounmpo. In his previous 200 minutes with GA before tonight, Bledsoe had per-36 averages 18.7 points, 5.6 boards, 6.7 dimes, 2.7 steals and 1.4 treys on 45.1 percent from the field. His owners will take that all day, so expect him to be close to an early-round guy as long as he's healthy.
Dec 1 - 12:42 AM

Eric Bledsoe had one of his best games with the Bucks on Tuesday in Sacramento, scoring 21 points on 7-of-10 shooting.

He was shooting 39.7 percent from the field and 23.4 percent from deep prior to Tuesday, but as expected, his percentages are rising as he develops some chemistry with his teammates. Bledsoe only played 24 minutes because of the lopsided score, but he managed to rack up five rebounds, five assists, three steals and three triples. He's trending up and should be a blast to own if he can stay healthy.

Eric Bledsoe scored a season-high 30 points against his former Suns in a 113-107 overtime win on Wednesday, hitting 11-of-26 shots and 6-of-13 free throws with seven assists, six rebounds, two steals and two triples in 45 minutes.

Bledsoe is off to a slow start with his new team, but there's nothing like a "revenge game" to get the juices flowing. "I’m with a talented group of guys who can also make plays," Bledsoe said of his new teammates. "So I’ve got to try to find my game a little bit. It takes time." Bledsoe enjoyed a nice bump in usage with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) resting, and while his value will trend back down after this massive line, he still has enough upside to flirt with early- to mid-round value once his shot starts falling.
Nov 23 - 12:30 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 14 points with six steals, three boards, two assists and one 3-pointer vs. the Wizards on Monday.

He finished one steal shy of his career-high and hit 6-of-13 shots, but his struggles from the perimeter continued. Since joining the Bucks, Bledsoe has hit just 4-of-25 triples (16%). He'll eventually find his rhythm and he's playing for a team that isn't chasing lottery balls, so his rest-of-season outlook is still pretty promising.
Nov 21 - 12:05 AM

Eric Bledsoe played only 22 minutes vs. Dallas on Saturday, hitting 2-of-10 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs for six points, four rebounds, four assists and one steal.

Bledsoe committed his third foul with 6:40 left in the second quarter, and he didn't play at all in the fourth quarter with the score out of hand. He's yet to score more than 15 points in five games with the Bucks, but the supporting stats have helped and an adjustment period was inevitable. Patience is a virtue.
Nov 18 - 11:56 PM

Eric Bledsoe finished Wednesday's home win with 14 points, eight assists, six rebounds, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

That type of across-the-board production is exactly what EB's owners want to see, and he balanced out his 4-of-12 FGs with a 5-of-5 mark at the line. The Bucks are being careful with Bledsoe, but he said after playing 27 minutes on Monday that his legs "felt good," and the playing time should ramp up soon enough. The Bucks are now 4-0 since inserting Bledsoe in the starting unit.
Nov 16 - 12:10 AM

Eric Bledsoe played through a right knee contusion on Monday vs. the Grizzlies, scoring 15 points with seven rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

The low minutes were probably by design, but Bledsoe didn't seem bothered by his knee and played some really nice defense on Mike Conley down the stretch. He's averaging 13.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.7 triples through his first three games with the Bucks, but those numbers should improve once he develops some chemistry with his teammates and when his minutes go up.
Nov 13 - 11:18 PM

Eric Bledsoe (right knee contusion) is in the starting lineup on Monday vs. Memphis.

"If he can go that means his knee is fine," coach Jason Kidd said about an hour before tip-off. Bledsoe made it through warmups just fine and this injury sounds relatively minor, so get the PG in your lineups.
Nov 13 - 7:58 PM

Eric Bledsoe (right knee contusion) remains a game-time decision for Monday's matchup with Memphis.

The Bucks may want to play it safe with Bledsoe, who hadn't seen the court for roughly three weeks before making his Milwaukee debut on Friday and has a history of knee issues, but we likely won't get official word until just prior to tipoff. If he's out, Malcolm Brogdon would return to the starting five and Khris Middleton would see some increased playmaking opportunities. Stay tuned.
Nov 13 - 6:27 PM

Eric Bledsoe is a game-time call vs. Memphis on Monday with a right knee contusion.

The Bucks were worried about Bledsoe picking up an injury because he was off for nearly two weeks when the Suns were shopping him, but at least this sounds minor. If Bledsoe can't go, Malcolm Brogdon will likely move back into the starting lineup and would get a nice bump in usage, while Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton will have a little more weight on their shoulders as well.
Nov 13 - 1:39 PM

Playing in his second game for the Bucks on Saturday, Eric Bledsoe finished with 11 points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers in 31 minutes.

He made 4-of-13 FGs (0-of-6 from deep) and it will inevitably take him a while to fully mesh with his new team, but fantasy owners have to be thrilled. It didn't take long for him to get traded away from Phoenix, and his efficiency should quickly improve with defenses focused on Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton. It's all-systems-go for EB's owners.
Nov 12 - 12:24 AM

Eric Bledsoe had a successful debut for Milwaukee in Friday's 94-87 win over the Spurs, scoring 13 points with seven assists, four rebounds, one steal and one triple in 29 minutes.

The Bucks kept a close eye on his minutes since he hasn't played in an NBA game October 21st, but he appeared to be in excellent shape and meshed well with his new teammates. He finished 6-of-15 from the field and missed his only free throw with three turnovers, but all in all it was a solid showing with a 26.7 usage rate -- similar to his usage rate in Phoenix. The Bucks actually shortened their rotation with Malcolm Brogdon getting plenty of minutes (34) as well, so Bledsoe could be closer to 32 minutes in his next outing.
Nov 11 - 12:03 AM

Eric Bledsoe will replace Malcolm Brogdon in the starting lineup Friday vs. the Spurs.

Kidd did say that they would monitor Bledsoe's minutes on Friday night, as he has just one full practice under his belt and hasn't played in an NBA game October 21st. Thus, it's best to avoid Bledsoe in DFS formats on Friday, but being named the starting point guard right away is encouraging for his long-term fantasy value. We will have to wait and see how playing time between Brogdon and Bledsoe is divvied up once Bledsoe is back in game shape.
