Eric Bledsoe notched his second triple-double of the season in a win over Dallas on Tuesday, finishing with 16 points, 11 assists, 10 boards, three steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.
He did shoot just 6-of-19 from the field and turned the ball over three times, but his owners have to be thrilled with this line. Bledsoe's rebounding has really improved over his last three games, and he has been able to snag 29 boards over that span. He will look to continue his torrid pace against the Kings on Friday.

Eric Bledsoe led the Suns to a win over the Wizards on Sunday, finishing with 17 points, nine boards, three assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes.

He had 25 points with 10 rebounds on Saturday, so hopefully he can keep rebounding and scoring at a high rate. Bledsoe probably won't see more than 30 minutes most nights as long as Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas are healthy, but Bledsoe should continue to be an elite asset moving forward.
Dec 21 - 8:36 PM

Eric Bledsoe was terrific against the Knicks during a 99-90 win on Saturday with 25 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He carved up the Knicks and they didn't have anyone to cover him. Bledsoe has not been affected by the return of Isaiah Thomas, averaging 15.8 points, 4.8 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.8 triples. He can be viewed as a top-10 fantasy shooting guard.
Dec 20 - 4:08 PM

Eric Bledsoe struggled in Sunday's loss to the Thunder, scoring 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting to go with four assists, one board, one steal and one block in just 22 minutes.

Goran Dragic (back) was sidelined for this one, and Bledsoe was unable to keep the Suns in this game. This was not what his owners were expecting from him, but he should be much better against the Bucks on Monday. Bledsoe should still be considered a must-start option moving forward and his usage rate should rise if Dragic has to miss any more time.
Dec 14 - 10:10 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored just four points in a loss to the Heat on Tuesday, adding eight assists, five rebounds and one steal in 36 minutes.

After posting what was arguably the best fantasy line of the season on Monday, he responded with his worst game of the season on Tuesday. Bledsoe shot just 2-of-11 from the field and missed all six of his 3-point attempts. To make things worse, he turned the ball over seven times and just couldn't get anything going. Bledsoe should bounce back vs. the Pistons on Friday, and owners should give him a pass for Tuesday's dud.
Dec 9 - 11:57 PM

Eric Bledsoe had one of the best lines of the season in Monday's overtime loss to his old Clippers squad, scoring 27 points on 8-of-16 shooting (2-of-6 from deep, 9-of-9 from the line) with 11 rebounds, a career-high 16 assists, two steals and two blocks.

Bledsoe was all over the court and made innumerable big plays as he tortured his former teammates. Don't look now but he's returning top 20-40 value and that could be sell-high territory given his injury risk and the pending return of Isaiah Thomas, but we like him as the safest asset among the Suns' backcourt producers.
Dec 9 - 2:23 AM

Eric Bledsoe brought the defensive stats in a 100-95 loss to the Rockets on Saturday with three blocks and three steals, adding 23 points, four rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He had a couple emphatic blocks in transition and he's been much better in that regard. Last season, Bledsoe had a disappointing 0.3 blocks per game with the Suns, but he's up to 0.7 this year while most of his other stats are similar. He should be fine even when Isaiah Thomas (ankle) comes back.
Dec 7 - 12:12 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 19 points with three rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

Like his teammate Goran Dragic, it's been the same story with Bledsoe with 32.3 percent of his points coming in fast-break over his last five without Isaiah Thomas (ankle). Bledsoe averaged 19.2 points, 2.6 boards, 6.8 dimes, 1.6 steals and 1.2 triples in that span, too. His hip injury from last week looks to be behind him and he's on cruise control right now.
Dec 6 - 2:19 AM

Eric Bledsoe made 11-of-20 shots to finish Tuesday's convincing victory with 27 points, three rebounds, seven assists, four steals and just two turnovers in 39 minutes vs. the Pacers.

EB has been bothered by a hip injury lately but it wasn't an issue tonight, and fantasy owners can take him off their injury-watch lists. As a pertinent side note, Bledsoe leads the NBA with six technical fouls and will need to keep his cool if he's to avoid earning a few mandatory suspensions late in the season.
Dec 2 - 11:58 PM

Eric Bledsoe had six turnovers in Sunday's loss to the Magic, while scoring 13 points along with six assists, three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He shot just 5-of-14 from the floor and he was often careless with the ball Sunday. Perhaps his hip injury from Friday has carried over as Bledsoe was grimacing throughout this game and he was very lazy without the ball. Plus, coach Jeff Hornacek took him out with about one minute left in the first half for Archie Goodwin -- an unusual move for his rotation. With Isaiah Thomas (ankle) up in the air for Tuesday, Bledsoe should be better. He might not be the strongest bet in daily due to this nagging injury, though.
Nov 30 - 11:20 PM

Eric Bledsoe was the only Suns player to make noise in the box score in Friday's 25-point loss in Denver, scoring 16 points on 4-of-14 shooting (0-for-2 3PTs, 8-of-8 FTs) with three rebounds, four assists and one block in 27 minutes.

No other starter played more than 24 minutes and the team looked like they ate too much Turkey before a game in Denver's thin air. Goran Dragic's owners don't have Isaiah Thomas (DNP-ankle) to blame in his seven-point, three-assist affair, Markieff Morris (seven points, three boards, two steals, two blocks) was saved by his defensive stats, and everybody else had a forgettable night.
Nov 29 - 3:36 AM

Eric Bledsoe returned from a fall on his hip in the third quarter against the Nuggets on Wednesday, finishing with 21 points, one rebound, 10 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.

In the post-game interview, Bledsoe said he's dealt with this type of injury all the time and just needs to get treatment. Although, it's worth mentioning he did dismiss a calf contusion last season and it cost him multiple games. His owners will want to keep an eye on him until a rematch against Denver on Friday.
Nov 27 - 3:00 AM

Eric Bledsoe went to the locker room in the third quarter of Wednesday's game against the Nuggets and has returned.

He looked to land on his hip and hobbled back to the locker room under his own power. Bledsoe was down for a very long time, so it was nice to see him get back out there. He exited with 15 points, one rebound, seven assists, three steals and two turnovers. Stay tuned. If he's out, Isaiah Thomas (ankle) and Gerald Green would get bumps.
Nov 26 - 10:46 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored a season-high 25 points against the Raptors on Monday with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

He made 8-of-16 from the field in this stat-stuffing line. Bledsoe played 37 minutes tonight and there has been a slight upward trend in his minutes, but it hasn't really showed up because the Suns had garbage time come into play in their two previous games. He has barely been in the top 100 before today, but this massive line should raise his value over one round.
Nov 24 - 11:43 PM

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.
