Cory Joseph scored 19 points with two assists, one rebound, one steal and one triple vs. the Bulls on Tuesday.
He logged 43 minutes in the overtime win, shooting 6-of-11 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line. CoJo is only averaging 11.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 triples in his last 13 games since the All-Star break, but with Kyle Lowry's (wrist) timetable still up in the air, he's worth owning as a low-end guard.

Cory Joseph scored 11 points to go along with a career-high nine assists, four rebounds, a steal and a blocked shots in 31 minutes Sunday against the Pacers.

Joseph misfired on just four of his nine field goal attempts while draining his only attempt from beyond the arc. His production has been rather erratic lately, as he entered with single-digit point totals in three of his past four outings. However, Sunday's stat line was nothing for fantasy owners to complain about. The career-high dimes were a treat, and he has six or more in each of his past three outings.
Mar 19 - 9:25 PM

Cory Joseph scored 11 points with two rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

The Raptors are losing grip on their home-court advanced in the first round and probably don't have any chance at a top-three seed. Joseph hasn't really done anything special with his starting role, averaging 11.6 points, 3.6 boards, 4.0 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.9 treys in his previous games this month. He has barely had standard-league value, so his owners shouldn't hold on too tightly if a hot free agent pops up. Dropping him for someone like Tyler Ulis is a no-brainer.
Mar 16 - 9:51 PM

Cory Joseph scored six points with three rebounds, one steal and two turnovers in 22 minutes against the Heat on Saturday.

After one of his best games on Friday, he had one of his worst games on Saturday. Since Joseph took over following the Kyle Lowry (elbow) injury, he's been a ninth-round guy and has been slightly disappointing along the way. In other words, he should be worth using this week with four games.
Mar 11 - 11:35 PM

Cory Joseph scored 15 points with two rebounds, eight assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

It was easily his best game since the Kyle Lowry injury. In his previous games since Lowry went down, Joseph only averaged 11.7 points, 3.4 boards, 4.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.7 treys. This was a very favorable matchup and the refs let him get away with some stuff, so there's no need to overreact to this line. He gets a much tougher matchup on Saturday in Miami.
Mar 11 - 12:51 AM

Cory Joseph scored 14 points with five rebounds, eight assists and two 3-pointers in Saturday's loss to the Bucks.

He looks to have finally found his footing in the first unit and it certainly helps with teams paying so much attention to DeMar DeRozan. After a rough start as a starter, Joseph averaged 12.0 points, 3.6 boards, 4.4 assists, 0.8 steal and 0.8 treys in his last five. He's still more of a low-end guy, but the consistency should count for something for owners in competitive leagues.
Mar 4 - 11:09 PM

Cory Joseph scored 15 points with five rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 32 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

Delon Wright is suddenly applying some pressure behind Joseph, but the Raptors did play them together again. They only played together for three minutes on Wednesday and that was up to six minutes today. Joseph is still a low-end guy to hold in standard leagues, especially since he actually turned in some production today.
Mar 4 - 12:30 AM

Cory Joseph played 28 minutes on Wednesday to finish with 11 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and zero turnovers.

Joseph has vanished from the waiver wire in most standard leagues, and he's worth holding in most instances. Kyle Lowry (wrist) is out for about a month and the starting job belongs to CoJo -- in the past four games he's averaged 10.5 points, 4.3 assists and 2.3 steals in 32.8 minutes. More 3-pointers and boards would be nice, but he's still getting it done for a PG you scooped up for nothing -- the assists would have been higher tonight if Toronto had shot better than 36.7 percent.
Mar 1 - 10:52 PM

Cory Joseph was held to six points on 3-of-7 shooting on Monday vs. the Knicks.

The important takeaway is that CoJo played 34 minutes, and with Kyle Lowry (wrist surgery) out several weeks, he will have a significant role if he can hold off Delon Wright. Joseph added four assists with three rebounds and two steals, and while his upside is low playing next to a usage rate monster in DeMar DeRozan, he's worth owning as a low-end guard. He averaged 12.5 points, 6.0 assists, 1.0 rebound and 2.0 steals in his previous two starts.
Feb 27 - 9:58 PM

Cory Joseph got another start on Sunday, posting 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting with six assists, one rebound, one steal, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 33 minutes.

Delon Wright earned some fourth-quarter minutes tonight, alongside Norman Powell, but CoJo took the reins down the stretch. Kyle Lowry (wrist) was out again tonight and it's unclear when he might return -- until a timetable is established, it makes sense to hold CoJo for short-term value.
Feb 26 - 9:07 PM

Cory Joseph will earn another start on Sunday with Kyle Lowry (wrist) unavailable.

Joseph had 11 points, six assists and three steals in 36 minutes on Friday, and the playing time should be very high again tonight. He's a fine streaming and DFS option, and is worth a look everywhere while Lowry is on the shelf.
Feb 26 - 5:59 PM

Cory Joseph scored 11 points in a start against the Celtics on Friday, adding one rebound, six assists, three steals and one turnover in 36 minutes.

He started out slow in this game, but was still able to turn in a decent stat line. Kyle Lowry (wrist) is going to need further evaluation and was in a brace on Friday night, so Joseph is likely looking at another game in the starting lineup. If you need a point guard or want some Kyle Lowry insurance, it's not a bad idea to add Joseph in most leagues until Lowry gets a clean bill of health.
Feb 24 - 11:59 PM

Cory Joseph will start for Kyle Lowry (wrist) against the Celtics on Friday night.

The Raptors will just throw their best point guard in the first unit with Delon Wright and Fred Vanvleet. Lowry had an X-ray on his wrist and will get more evaluation, so he could miss more action. Joseph is worth a look as a speculative add until Lowry gets the all clear.
Feb 24 - 7:16 PM

Cory Joseph played 22 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday with four points, two rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers.

He was a DNP-CD on Sunday, but has played at least 20 minutes in each of his last two. Coach Dwane Casey talked about Joseph needing a mental blow, so it looks like it's over. Joseph only has value in deeper leagues and likely wouldn't get a big bump if Kyle Lowry needed a day off.
Feb 9 - 1:08 AM

Cory Joseph was a DNP-CD against the Nets on Sunday.

Wow. The last time Joseph played in Brooklyn, he had a career-high 33 points back on Jan. 13. Coach Dwane Casey said Joseph needed a "mental blow" on Friday and basically just had him help close while they were losing. Today, they were winning, so Casey just stuck with Fred VanVleet over CoJo. We'll see if anything changes, but VanVleet played well on the defensive end today, so maybe this sticks until FVV cools off.
