Cory Joseph came off the bench on Wednesday for five points, three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes.
CoJo exploded as a starter on Tuesday with 33 points, four boards and four assists, but that was the result of a perfect storm -- Kyle Lowry was resting and he was up against the Nets' terrible defense. He's barely inside the top-200 for season-long value. Jan 18 - 10:20 PM

Cory Joseph scored a career-high 33 points in Tuesday's win over the Nets.

Starting in place of the resting Kyle Lowry, Joseph shattered his previous career high of 20 points set back in 2014. He hit 15-of-22 shots from the field with four rebounds, four assists and one triple in 37 minutes, as the Nets' young backcourt had no answer for him. Lowry is expected to return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers, but remember this performance from CoJo the next time Lowry gets a night off.

Cory Joseph is starting in place of Kyle Lowry (rest) on Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Lowry is getting the night off to rest some bumps and bruises, so Joseph could eclipse the 30-minute mark tonight and looks like a strong punt in DFS. DeMar DeRozan should also be a popular play, as his usage rate climbs from 31.7 to 41.5 with Lowry off the court.
Jan 17 - 7:21 PM

Cory Joseph made all seven shots from the field for 16 points against the Nets on Friday with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes.

He was limping in the first half after stepping on Rondae Hollis-Jefferson's foot, but he didn't need to miss time after the trainers looked at him briefly. His 7-of-7 shooting line marked his highest total in a game with 100 percent from the field, topping his 6-of-6 from Apr. 8, 2016. Joseph won't have too much value while Kyle Lowry is playing so many minutes.
Jan 13 - 11:06 PM

Cory Joseph played 25 minutes and scored 15 points with six rebounds and one assist in Thursday’s loss to the Suns.

Joseph was favoring his hip during the game and had another minor leg issue. This could have led to his poor defensive effort. He has a favorable matchup on Sunday against the Lakers and should get back on track.

Cory Joseph hit just 2-of-11 shots for six points and one assist in 23 minutes in Monday's 95-91 win over the Blazers.

Joseph has been playing well for most of the season and has been featured in our Waiver Wired column on an almost weekly basis. But he's struggled recently, hitting just 4-of-19 shots over his last two games. He should bounce back against the Warriors on Wednesday and is worth a deep-league look if you need a point guard.

Cory Joseph returned from an illness and played 26 minutes on Tuesday, finishing with 11 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a 3-pointer on 4-of-11 shooting.

He's averaging 11.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.5 3-pointers on 48 percent shooting over his last four games, making him worth a look if you need a point guard in a deep league.

Cory Joseph (illness) is a go for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

Joseph is too inconsistent to depend upon in most leagues, although he could see some increased minutes tonight if the game turns into a blowout. With Joseph back in action, Fred VanVleet should fall out of the rotation entirely.
Tue, Dec 20, 2016 06:21:00 PM

Cory Joseph (flu-like symptoms) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

Joseph missed Sunday's game due to the flu, the first game he didn't appear in this season. Fred VanVleet played a career-high 22 minutes off the Raps bench on Sunday. He would likely see extended playing time again on Tuesday if CoJo is ruled out.

Cory Joseph (illness) won't play vs. Orlando on Sunday.

It's flu season. Joseph's absence means more minutes for rookie Fred VanVleet and Norman Powell, but neither guy is great for DFS purposes. Consider Joseph questionable to return for Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 05:18:00 PM

Cory Joseph was excellent in 29 bench minutes on Wednesday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-9 field goals and 3-of-4 free throws.

CoJo added five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and just one turnover, and he continues to be a subtle glue-guy for the Raptors' impressive second unit. His real-world value exceeds his fantasy appeal, however, and he's only worth owning in very deep leagues.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 10:37:00 PM

Cory Joseph played 27 minutes off the bench and had six points, four rebounds, seven assists and two steals on 3-of-8 shooting on Monday.

He didn't hit a 3-pointer and was a beneficiary of garbage time in a blowout win tonight. He's worth keeping an eye on, but is averaging just 8.2 points, 2.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 0.8 steals over his last five games. And there are probably other players on your waiver wire who can help you more at this point.

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.

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.
Thu, Dec 1, 2016 05:15:00 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.
