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.
Jan 10 - 2:51 AM

Eric Bledsoe made 7-of-17 from the field for 17 points against the Wolves during a 113-111 victory on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, one assist and five steals.

Bledsoe tends to struggle shooting the ball on the second half of back-to-back sets so far this season, but he was fantastic besides the efficiency issues. Over his last five, he's averaged 18.6 points, 4.4 boards, 7.0 dies, 2.4 steals and 1.2 triples. Bledsoe put up second-round value in the past month and is one of the hottest properties in fantasy basketball.
Jan 8 - 3:25 AM

Eric Bledsoe turned the ball over seven times while shooting 3-of-10 from the field on Tuesday, finishing the Suns' road victory with 10 points and 10 assists.

Bledsoe carved through the Bucks' defense with ease but was wild with the ball once he got in the paint. The dimes kept it from being a total wash for fantasy owners, and he added six rebounds and two steals. He's been phenomenal over the past month and has obviously found his comfort zone in the Suns' guard-heavy attack.
Jan 6 - 10:36 PM

Eric Bledsoe stuffed the stat sheet in 30 minutes vs. the Raptors, finishing with 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting, two rebounds, eight assists, three steals and only one turnover.

EB has been solid in 33 minutes per game all season, returning top-40 value in spite of the Suns' busy backcourt rotation. The Suns have a mediocre fantasy schedule during the second half of the season, but they have another favorable four-game slate in Week 11.
Jan 4 - 10:40 PM

Eric Bledsoe hit 10-of-19 shots for a season-high 29 points, two rebounds, eight assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Thunder.

Bledsoe was a monster tonight and benefitted by not having to deal with Russell Westbrook, who was ejected in the second quarter. Isaiah Thomas is the odd-man out in the backcourt right now, so continue to ride Bledsoe until he cools off. He just missed a triple-double on Sunday after hitting for one of those on Christmas Eve.

Eric Bledsoe flirted with a triple-double vs. the Lakers on Sunday, notching 22 points, one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, eight assists, four steals and one block in the Suns' road win.

Bledsoe's 3.2 turnovers take a toll in 9-cat leagues, and his 43.8 percent shooting could use improvement, but otherwise his fantasy owners have nothing to complain about. He's averaging 15.9 points, 1.0 threes, 5.3 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.7 blocks, while making 84.0 percent of his 5.0 free throw attempts per game.

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.
Wed, Dec 24, 2014 12:14:00 AM

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 10:10:00 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.

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.

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.
