Eric Bledsoe had 23 points, five rebounds, seven assists, a block, a 3-pointer and zero turnovers on 6-of-14 shooting in 39 minutes of Saturday's win over the Knicks.

Nice. Bledsoe's fantastic season keeps rolling on and the zero turnovers made tonight's line extra special. He's averaging 20.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 8.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five games, and the only negative is that he's shooting just 41 percent over that stretch. He has a history of injuries, so his run could come to an end at any time, but for now, he's one of the most reliable guards in all of fantasy.
Jan 21 - 10:29 PM

Eric Bledsoe hit 11-of-20 shots, 2-of-6 3-pointers and 7-of-7 free throws for 31 points, nine rebounds, nine assists and a steal in 37 minutes of Monday's 106-101 loss to the Jazz.

He just missed the third triple-double of his career, but is quietly rolling this season. He's averaging 23.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 7.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on 53 percent shooting over his last five games and hasn't missed a single game thus far. He has an ugly injury history and this season's minutes could catch up to him at some point, but for now, he looks like a must-own, must-start player until further notice. If you do trade him due to injury concerns, make sure you get plenty in return, as he appears to be on a mission to have a big season.
Jan 16 - 11:46 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 11 points with six rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 28 minutes against the Mavericks on Thursday.

Bledsoe attempted just four shots which tied his season-low. He has had a strong January, averaging 24 points, 7.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds, and two steals per game prior to tonight’s contest. He has a tough task on Saturday against the Spurs, so fantasy owners should temper their expectations for him in that contest.
Jan 13 - 12:59 AM

Eric Bledsoe hit 12-of-18 shots for 31 points with eight assists, two rebounds, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in Sunday’s loss to the Cavs.

His valiant effort was not enough to get the Suns a victory. The good news is that this was one of his better shooting nights in quite some time and it was the first time he scored 30 points since Dec. 13. Bledsoe is one of six players in the league averaging at least 20.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists, joining Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kyle Lowry, James Harden, Russell Westbrook and LeBron James.
Jan 8 - 11:18 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 26 points in a 102-95 win over the Mavs on Thursday, adding seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

It was the Bled Show late with his seven-point run as the only points in the game from when it was tied at 93 to when the Suns were up 100-93 with 17 seconds left. Bledsoe also scored 12 in the fourth thanks to the Mavs going under so many screens, which he was certainly a fan of. "I hope so," Bledsoe said about how teams have been going under screens more. He's been a cold jump shooter, but fantasy owners can't really complain with his fourth-round value on the season.
Jan 6 - 12:22 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 22 points on 8-of-27 shooting in Monday's loss to the Clippers.

That's obviously a really inefficient line and he also turned the ball over four times, but he nearly recorded a triple-double by racking up nine assists, eight rebounds, three steals and one triple in 41 minutes. With the Suns tanking, Bledsoe might be the only veteran who isn't in danger of losing minutes down the stretch as long as he can stay healthy.
Jan 3 - 1:22 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 22 points in a big 99-91 win over the Raptors on Thursday, adding five rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

He was coach Earl Watson's go-to guy with minutes next to every player except for Leandro Barbosa. It was interesting to see Bledsoe log 12 minutes next to Tyler Ulis, which had only occurred for 19 minutes in the entire season before tonight. The Suns are shifting to their youth, but clearly Bledsoe is their best player. He should be a stud as long as he's healthy.

Eric Bledsoe was outstanding in a 123-116 win over the 76ers on Friday, handing out a season-high 11 assists with 24 points with two rebounds, three blocks and two 3-pointers.

The Suns pulled off a nice 14-point comeback to get this win. They were able to get to a season high as a team for points thanks largely to Bledsoe's second double-double of the season. Yes, going against Sergio Rodriguez helps, but Bledsoe looks great with the Suns running at the fastest pace in the Western Conference.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 12:42:00 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 27 points on 9-of-20 shooting with three assists, one rebound and three triples in Monday's loss to the Wolves.

He was everywhere on the defensive end, racking up two steals and two blocks in 33 minutes. Coach Earl Watson said after Saturday's game that Bledsoe is playing a through a groin injury, so while it didn't seem to bother him tonight, it's worth keeping that in the back of your mind for back-to-back sets and if the Suns tank some games late in the season.

Coach Earl Watson said Eric Bledsoe is playing through a groin injury.

Watson was talking about how Bledsoe had some trouble staying in front of Russell Westbrook. It doesn't sound serious, but this will be something to keep an eye on, especially for back-to-back games. In Saturday's loss, Bledsoe finished with 12 points, three rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes. We'd expect him to play against the Wolves on Monday.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 07:57:00 PM

Eric Bledsoe hit 5-of-14 shots for 14 points, four rebounds, five assists, and one steal in 29 minutes on Thursday night.

This performance ended Bledsoe’s three-game streak of scoring at least 30 points and tied his lowest scoring night of December. He looks to get back on track on Saturday against a Thunder team that allows the seventh most fantasy points per game to point guards.
Thu, Dec 15, 2016 11:39:00 PM

Eric Bledsoe stayed hot on Tuesday, hitting 9-of-21 shots, a 3-pointer and 12-of-12 free throws on his way to 31 points, six rebounds, eight assists, two steals, a block and five turnovers in 39 minutes of a 113-111 overtime win over the Knicks.

This marked Bledsoe's third straight 30-point game, making him the first Sun to pull off that feat since Amare Stoudemire did it back in 2010. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Eric Bledsoe scored a game-high 32 points in a losing effort vs. the Pelicans, going 13-of-26 from the field with eight assists, three rebounds, two steals and three 3-pointers.

EB has 30+ points in back-to-back games for the first time in his career, and his usage rate continues to climb -- it's currently at 26.7 percent. He looked somewhat tentative to begin the season but has since resumed alpha-dog status, to the delight of his fantasy owners. He's worked his way into top-40 value and his arrow is pointing straight up.
Mon, Dec 12, 2016 01:01:00 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 30 points with nine assists, four rebounds, three steals, one block and three triples in Friday's win over the Lakers.

Not a bad way to celebrate his 27th birthday. Bledsoe shot 10-of-18 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line for the 11th 30-point game of his career. Bledsoe has shown flashes this season, so hopefully he can keep it going in a favorable matchup with the Pelicans on Sunday.
