Eric Bledsoe scored 27 points with three rebounds, eight assists, five steals and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.
Those five steals get him back in second place with his 2.12 steals per game this year (Paul George has 2.21, Victor Oladipo has 2.10). Bledsoe's scoring is also up over his last six games with 21.5 points per game while adding strong percentages and full lines. He's trending up and is a strong bet for top-50 value the rest of the way. Feb 15 - 10:26 PM

Eric Bledsoe struggled in the first half of Tuesday's 97-92 win over the Hawks, but had a nice second half that included an emphatic dunk over Ersan Ilyasova to help fire up his team and propel them to the win.

Bledsoe finished with 14 points, three rebounds, nine assists, a steal, three blocks and two 3-pointers on 5-of-14 shooting in 35 minutes. The three blocks tied his season high and were a bit fluky, as he hasn't blocked a shot in eight of his last 10 games, but he did a little bit of everything tonight, including turned it over six times. Bledsoe is hot over his last five games, averaging 20.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.0 blocks and 2.2 3-pointers on 54 percent shooting. Milwaukee's won five of their last six games and are currently the No. 4 seed in the East, and Bledsoe is a big part of the equation for their success.

Eric Bledsoe posted 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting across 33 minutes in Saturday's 111-104 win at Orlando.

Bledsoe also chipped in with a 2-of-3 night from behind the 3-point line while going a perfect 4-of-4 from the free-throw line. He added eight assists with three rebounds and a steal, but it still might be a bit disappointing across 33 minutes. Fantasy owners want to see more, but unless Giannis Antetokounmpo or Khris Middleton are sidelined, it appears Bledsoe is the tertiary scoring option at best.
Feb 10 - 9:39 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 23 points with eight assists, five rebounds, one steal and two triples in 29 minutes vs. the Knicks on Thursday.

With Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) and Malcolm Brogdon (quad) looking at a lot of time on the shelf, Bledsoe is locked into a heavy workload going forward. He was 7-of-11 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line, finishing as a +34 in the 14-point win. After a brutal stretch in which he scored in single digits in three straight games, his ankle must be feeling better because he's scored an average of 25.5 points in his last two games.
Feb 7 - 1:05 AM

Eric Bledsoe powered the Bucks to their sixth win in the past seven games on Sunday, scoring 28 points on 12-of-20 shooting with six assists, four rebounds and three 3-pointers.

EB missed Thursday's game with a minor ankle injury, and he'd been slumping for nearly three weeks before catching fire vs. Brooklyn today. He's even more critical for the Bucks' success with Malcolm Brogdon (quad) out 6-8 weeks, so owners can be confident the minutes and touches will be there rest-of-season. And clearly his ankle injury isn't bothering him.
Feb 4 - 2:45 PM

Eric Bledsoe (ankle) returned from a one-game absence only to foul out in 23 minutes vs. the Knicks on Friday.

He looked a step slow on defense for most of the night and it's surely related to his ankle. He finished with seven points on 3-of-8 shooting with three assists, one rebound, one steal and one triple, but he now gets a day off to rest up for Sunday's favorable matchup vs. Brooklyn. Once he's back up to 100 percent, Bledsoe should see a bump in value with Malcolm Brogdon (quad) out 6-8 weeks.
Feb 3 - 12:09 AM

Eric Bledsoe (ankle) will play and start against the Knicks on Friday.

Bledsoe sat out on Thursday after playing just three minutes earlier in the week, but the Bucks need him more than ever with Malcolm Brogdon (quad) out 6-8 weeks. If his ankle holds up, Bledsoe should see a small bump in value.
Feb 2 - 6:22 PM

Eric Bledsoe (ankle) is listed as available for Friday against the Knicks.

The Bucks may have planned to rest Bledsoe on the front end of a back-to-back set on Thursday. Bledsoe is going to have to step up even more with Malcolm Brogdon (quad tendon) out for around two months.
Feb 2 - 5:23 PM

Eric Bledsoe (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Wolves.

He was previously listed as doubtful and never really had a shot to play tonight. His status for Friday's game vs. the Knicks is also in danger. With Bledsoe out, we should see more of Malcolm Brogdon, Matthew Dellavedova and maybe even Jason Terry, but Brogdon is the only guy you can trust in most fantasy formats.
Feb 1 - 1:14 PM

Eric Bledsoe (ankle) was listed as doubtful in the game notes for Thursday against the Wolves.

As usual, do not trust the game notes. The bigger story on Bledsoe today is that he was limited in practice, so chances are that update is more recent than this one because it takes a lot of time for teams to write game notes. For now, expect Bledsoe to be a game-time call for Thursday. We'll get an update at Thursday shootaround.

Eric Bledsoe (left ankle) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

Bledsoe reportedly could have returned to the game on Monday if needed, but the Bucks wanted to be cautious with him. The ankle issue doesn't sound very serious, but maybe they give him one more day off to ensure he's completely past the issue. If Bledsoe sits on Thursday, Matthew Dellavedova would likely get the start, although that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops.
Jan 31 - 1:50 PM

Eric Bledsoe said he didn't tweak his ankle on Monday and that "it will be fine."

Bledsoe, who has been dealing with a left ankle issue since the Suns game last week, started on Monday vs. the Sixers, but played less than three minutes before exiting and never returned to the game. "That was the plan, to go in and see how I feel," Bledsoe said. "Unfortunately it didn’t work out the way I planned." The Bucks don't play again until Thursday, but we'll consider him questionable for that contest. We should have an update after Tuesday's practice.
Jan 30 - 9:36 AM

Eric Bledsoe started on Monday after being listed as probable with a sprained left ankle, but didn't look right and lasted just three minutes before being shutdown for the rest of the night.

The Bucks said after the game that Bledsoe's ankle didn't allow him to continue to so we're putting him on the injury report. This was a tough break for his fantasy owners and Bledsoe is now questionable for Thursday's game at Minnesota. Tony Snell started in place of Bledsoe to start the second half and had 11 points in 31 minutes.
Jan 29 - 10:52 PM

Tony Snell started the second half of Monday's game vs. the 76ers in place of Eric Bledsoe.

Bledsoe got a quick hook in the first quarter and played three total minutes in the first half. He wasn't giving them any anything defensively, but while there's no official word yet, it sounds like he might be dealing with an injury. Stay tuned.
Jan 29 - 9:30 PM

Eric Bledsoe couldn't get his shot to drop on Sunday, going 3-of-11 from the field on his way to eight points, eight boards, six assists, two steals, one 3-pointer and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

Bledsoe’s been in a shooting rut over the past few weeks, connecting on just 33.0% of his shot attempts, and some of that has to do with the fact that he’s been settling for tough jumpers more than usual over that six-game span. He’s a career 44.4% shooter, so it should only be a matter of time until he turns things around.
