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.

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.
Apr 23 - 5:46 PM

Cory Joseph scored 16 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and one turnover in 24 minutes against the Pacers on Monday.

That's two fantastic games in a row from Joseph. Coach Dwane Casey went with Norman Powell and Joseph over DeMar DeRozan and DeMarre Carroll to help close out this game before garbage time. With the Pacers essentially starting two point guards, this has been a good spot for the Raptors to go with two-PG lineups. Joseph has played 33 of his 48 playoff minutes next to Kyle Lowry. He's in play as a punt in DFS.
Apr 18 - 10:18 PM

Cory Joseph scored a team-high 18 points against the Pacers on Saturday, adding three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

The Cory Joseph pick-and-roll was by far the best play for the Raptors. Every other perimeter player was sub-par on the offensive end, especially Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan. Joseph did close this game out, but coach Dwane Casey waited too long to put him back out there. Joseph played 13 minutes next to Lowry in this game, so that's something to watch. He might be a sneaky punt play in DFS.
Apr 16 - 3:44 PM

Cory Joseph shot 1-of-5 from the field to score two points vs. Brooklyn on Wednesday, but he chipped in six boards, three assists and two steals in just 18 minutes off the bench.

Joseph was rested on Tuesday and he was a reserve tonight despite the absence of Kyle Lowry (rest), presumably so that the second unit could stay the same. He'll serve as the primary backup PG for the Atlantic Division champs as they try to march deep into the playoffs following a franchise-record for wins this season.
Apr 13 - 10:31 PM

Cory Joseph will come off the bench behind Delon Wright on Wednesday.

CoJo was initially reported as the likely starting PG but coach Dwane Casey had a different idea. The move allows Toronto to keep their second unit intact, which is likely why Casey opted for Wright ahead of Joseph, but either way it's bad news for Joseph's outlook tonight.
Apr 13 - 7:13 PM

Cory Joseph is expected to start against the Nets on Wednesday.

With Kyle Lowry resting, Joseph should get minutes in the upper 20s while Delon Wright gets minutes in the low 20s. Considering the matchup and how he should get shots, Joseph is a decent punt in DFS tonight.
Apr 13 - 4:37 PM

Cory Joseph returned to the bench on Sunday, where he posted four points, three rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 18 minutes.

The Raptors earned their franchise-record 23rd road win of the season tonight, holding off a late run from the Knicks to win 93-89. CoJo shot just 1-of-5 tonight but he's still 56.4 percent from the field in April, which is a great sign for Toronto as they look ahead to the playoffs.
Apr 10 - 10:27 PM

Cory Joseph scored 18 points with one rebound, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers against the Pacers on Friday.

He obviously benefited from Kyle Lowry not playing. The Raptors are basically locked into their No. 2 spot, so we might see another start out of Joseph again in the final three games.
Apr 9 - 12:55 AM

Cory Joseph, James Johnson and Jason Thompson will start against the Pacers on Friday.

The Raptors are resting Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, so there will be a lot of chances for Joseph. Delon Wright will be his backup for this game.
Apr 8 - 6:56 PM

Cory Joseph returned to the bench on Tuesday with Kyle Lowry (rest) back in action and put up 11 points, four rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer and one steal in 25 minutes.

Joseph provided a nice spark off the bench, and he even took away a few minutes from Norman Powell. However, a 20-minute reserve role isn't enough floor time for Joseph to produce on a consistent basis. He'll be someone to consider as a punt play or streamer option on the nights Kyle Lowry is rested, but his value in standard season-long settings is pretty much non-existent.
Apr 5 - 10:53 PM

Cory Joseph scored 16 points in a start for Kyle Lowry (rest) against the Spurs on Saturday, adding one rebound, seven assists, one steal and four turnovers.

It was his first game in San Antonio since he was a Spur last season. Joseph turned in his best scoring game since February and was one off his season-high eight dimes. Kyle Lowry should be back for Tuesday, so Joseph isn't a pickup.
Apr 2 - 11:23 PM

Cory Joseph is starting for Kyle Lowry (rest) on Saturday.

It's just rest for Lowry, so it's only a spot-start for Joseph. He gets a revenge game, so maybe he can turn in a big game.
Apr 2 - 8:08 PM

Cory Joseph scored 12 points 4-of-10 shooting Friday, to go with three boards, two assists, two 3-pointers and four turnovers in 22 minutes.

Kyle Lowry logged 42 minutes in this one, so he could be in line for a rest day on Saturday with a matchup against the Pelicans. Joseph would start sans Lowry, and would be someone to consider as a punt play in DFS given the matchup, but as he's not really worth owning in most season-long settings.
