Cory Joseph played 23 minutes and had 10 points, five rebounds, six assists and a steal in Saturday's blowout win over the Hawks.
CJ has hit double figures in scoring in three straight games and is averaging 11.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists over his last five games, but has hit just two 3-pointers and come up with two steals during that stretch.And with Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan playing at such a high level as starters, it's going to be tough for Joseph to make a big impact on most nights. But if Lowry ever goes down with an injury, Joseph will be an extremely hot pickup in fantasyland. Dec 3 - 11:52 PM

Cory Joseph had 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes off the Raptors bench on Wednesday.

Joseph has been flying under the radar, but is averaging 12.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 3-pointers over his last five games. If you're in a deep league, give him a look.
Dec 1 - 5:15 AM

Cory Joseph (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards.

The Raptors won't push him at less than 100 percent and it gives them an excuse to get a long look at rookie Fred VanVleet. Joseph usually gets minutes in the 20s when healthy and he's had a strong preseason, but he's more of a handcuff for Kyle Lowry's owners.
Oct 21 - 11:29 AM

Cory Joseph came off the bench for 10 points, six boards, four assists and one steal during Wednesday's road win, making 4-of-7 shots with one 3-pointer.

Terrence Ross (knee) sat out which resulted in 24 minutes for Joseph, who has been shooting the ball very well this preseason. He's not worth drafting in standard-depth leagues, but will be a popular pickup if Kyle Lowry gets injured.
Oct 19 - 10:09 PM

Cory Joseph and Pat Patterson will also rest on Friday.

The Raptors will have basically their entire 2015-16 regular-season rotation out tonight. Fred VanVleet gets his chance to shine at the point.
Oct 14 - 6:05 PM

Cory Joseph pitched in 13 points, one assist and three steals during the Raptors' loss to the Clippers on Wednesday, making 5-of-8 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs in 18 minutes.

Kyle Lowry was resting so Fred VanVleet joined the first unit, but that's likely to maintain second-unit cohesion -- CoJo is the team's backup point guard with VanVleet as emergency depth. Plenty of teams would love the luxury of bringing Joseph off their bench, but as long as Kyle Lowry is healthy he won't see enough minutes for standard-league value.
Oct 6 - 1:08 AM

Dwane Casey praised Cory Joseph's strong showing in Toronto's Game 3 win on Saturday.

"He did a much better job tonight of controlling the game," Casey said. "Running the offense, keeping things under control, not letting the defense speed him up." The head coach then added that "Cory did a good job of handling their defensive pressure,"switching and making sure he had the right person involved in the pick-and-roll." Joseph is an important part of Toronto's formula for success, so he'll need to play well again in Monday's Game 4 for the Raptors to be firing on all cylinders.
May 23 - 9:17 AM

Cory Joseph was terrific in 31 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday with 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers.

It was easily his best game of the series and possibly his best game of the postseason. The most important part of his performance tonight was his outstanding defense on Kyrie Irving. The Raptors bench was destroyed in the first two games, so this was a huge boost. Joseph also played a lot of the clutch minutes late, which was a major against the Pacers in the first round. Don't expect him to be this effective in Game 4.
May 21 - 11:30 PM

Cory Joseph was a no-show during Toronto's Game 7 victory, scoring just one point to go with three assists and one steal through 19 minutes of floor time.

Joseph went scoreless through the first three quarters of action, and it wasn’t until the nine-minute mark of the fourth quarter that he scored his first point by going 1-of-2 from the line. He also missed all eight of his shot attempts, and while the Raptors were able to pullout a win despite him, he'll need to have a much more impactful performance during the Eastern Conference Finals if the Raptors hope to have any chance of upsetting the Cavs.
May 15 - 7:02 PM

Cory Joseph scored seven points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and no turnovers in 26 minutes against the Heat on Friday.

It was easily his worst game of the postseason. Joseph missed a fast break layup that was basically uncontested after a beautiful pass from Kyle Lowry. Now that DeMar DeRozan looks like himself again, Joseph's playing time should drop.
May 13 - 10:47 PM

Cory Joseph played 37 minutes against the Heat on Monday with 14 points, one rebound and one assist.

Kyle Lowry fouled out in the fourth before overtime to give Joseph some extra run. He was still likely on his way to 32-34 minutes with the way he's played off the bench. As the Raptors try to figure out what to do with the minutes, Joseph is likely going to be in their plans. He'll be a fine DFS punt when you don't want to spend up on point guard.
May 9 - 11:18 PM

Cory Joseph is expected to see an increase in playing time without Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) available.

The Raptors showed their comfort level in regularly deploying a backcourt of Joseph and Kyle Lowry during the regular season, so it only makes sense that Toronto will go back to that now that they'll be forced to play small more often than not. The expected increase in minutes should put Joseph on the radar as a potential DFS play, but we wouldn't get too excited about his ceiling.

Cory Joseph had another terrific game on Sunday, posting eight points, three rebounds, four assists and one block in the Raptors' series-clinching 89-84 home victory.

Joseph is shining in the national spotlight, and his two-way play off the bench is a big reason Toronto won their first playoff series since 2001. His penetration helped Toronto win the fastbreak battle for the first time all series, 12-8, and he was even more critical with Kyle Lowry (11 points on 5-of-14 FGs) struggling for most of the game.
May 1 - 10:48 PM

Cory Joseph scored 15 points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal, three 3-pointers and two turnovers in 25 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

He's arguably been the best Raptor of the series. Joseph has hit value in DFS majority of the time in this series, so he's on the table as a punt on Sunday.
Apr 29 - 10:31 PM

Cory Joseph did not score in 14 minutes on Saturday with one rebound, three steals and three turnovers.

He was one of the better bench players in the playoffs, but he just didn't have it today. Joseph didn't get as many minutes at off guard in this game and it'll be interesting to see what coach Dwane Casey does going forward. It'll be tough to use him in Game 5.
