The Wizards have made it clear that they will do what they must to retain Bradley Beal.
With Beal up for a contract extension after the 2015-16 season, rival executives expect that the Wizards will do whatever necessary to retain the 21-year-old. We're still a ways off from anything happening here and Kevin Durant's impending free agency after the 2015-16 season could change things. For now, fantasy owners will have to enjoy the fact that Beal is healthy and on-pace to return top-50 fantasy value as long as he can stay on the court. Nov 27 - 12:21 PM

Bradley Beal struggled in his first start of the season on Wednesday against the Cavs, making 4-of-10 from the field for 10 points with two rebounds, two assists and three steals in 28 minutes.

He only had 13 points in his last game and is just 1-of-8 from downtown in his last three games. There is obviously nothing to worry about here despite his season averages sitting at just 14.6 points, 3.6 boards, 3.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 triples on 44.6 percent from the field. He'll be better on Saturday against the Pelicans.
Nov 26 - 11:36 PM

Bradley Beal will move into the Wizards' starting lineup on Wednesday, moving Garrett Temple to the bench.

Beal has come off the bench in all four of his games this season, averaging 15.8 points on 45.5 percent shooting, 1.5 threes, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.0 steals. It was only a matter of time before he displaced Temple and he should already be locked into all active fantasy lineups.
Nov 26 - 6:13 PM

Bradley Beal made just 4-of-14 shots off Washington's bench in Tuesday's tough loss, scoring 13 points with one 3-pointer, six rebounds, one steal and a game-high seven turnovers.

It seems like only a matter of time before Garrett Temple is benched and Beal starts alongside John Wall, so Beal's owners should remain patient. The self-proclaimed best backcourt in the NBA had its struggles tonight, however, as Wall and Beal combined for a whopping 13 turnovers in a three-point defeat.
Nov 25 - 9:50 PM

With Nene expected to miss a few games with a foot injury, it's possible the Wizards are ready to start Bradley Beal over Garrett Temple.

As Kyle Weidie notes, the Wizards will miss Nene's passing skills and his absence could be the impetus to get Beal back into the starting unit sooner than later.
Nov 25 - 2:20 PM

Bradley Beal looked good against the Bucks on Saturday with 17 points, two rebounds, six assists and one turnover in 34 minutes.

He's played starter's minutes in each of the last two games and coach Randy Wittman will likely be putting him in the starting lineup any day now. Beal has third-round upside and just needs to stay healthy.
Nov 23 - 1:39 AM

Bradley Beal is coming off the bench again on Saturday against the Bucks.

Coach Randy Wittman does not want to throw Beal out there in the starting lineup, but he should still get plenty of minutes. Perhaps he didn't want to tweak his rotation in a back-to-back because it worked for him. Regardless, start Beal in all leagues.
Nov 22 - 8:15 PM

Bradley Beal played 32 minutes off the bench against the Cavs on Friday, scoring 12 points with five rebounds, five assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.

He looked great tonight and it would be a shock for him not to start against the Bucks on Saturday. Beal was outstanding last season with the Wizards and could improve in his third year. He just needs to stay healthy.
Nov 22 - 12:59 AM

Bradley Beal will again come off the bench on Friday.

It's really only a matter of time until Beal takes back his job with the starting unit, and the Wizards are simply easing him back into the rotation. Beal was able to put up 21 points over just 26 minutes of action during his last outing, to go with three 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists, two turnovers, and a steal, so he's going to get his whether he's starting or coming off the bench. He has a favorable matchup tonight vs. the Cavs, so owners can go ahead and roll him out there.
Nov 21 - 7:25 PM

Bradley Beal said he wants to play more this season.

"At the end of the day, we had some good lineups and good things going before I came back," Beal said. "So what Coach is doing, I have no problem with it at all. As far as me coming off the bench, me playing the minutes I’m playing, that’s totally his call." Beal is going to start and it's probably going to happen tonight against the Cavs. His fantasy owners will want to put him in their lineup as he looks to back up his words that he and John Wall are a better backcourt than Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters.
Nov 21 - 3:15 PM

Bradley Beal made his season debut and came off the bench, hitting 9-of-17 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 26 minutes on Wednesday.

He's back and Garrett Temple started, but played just 13 minutes for two points. Get Beal in your lineup and pray that he can stay out of the trainer's room for the rest of the season. He looked great tonight, and should be back in the starting lineup on Friday against the Cavaliers. And if you own Temple, it's time to move on.
Nov 20 - 12:44 AM

Bradley Beal (wrist) will come off the bench in his season debut against the Mavs on Wednesday.

Garrett Temple will likely get his last start with Beal active tonight. Fantasy owners shouldn't have high hopes for Beal with an expected minutes limit. He obviously should be owned in all leagues.
Nov 19 - 6:53 PM

Bradley Beal (wrist) is active for Wednesday night against the Mavs.

It's still unclear if he is going to start, but he's very likely to have his minutes limited. Beal will likely see his minutes in the high teens tonight before he gets more run on Friday. Garrett Temple will likely get decent minutes tonight.
Nov 19 - 6:13 PM

Contrary to a previous report, Bradley Beal (wrist) is now a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against Dallas, though he will come off the bench if he is active as he works his way back into shape.

He is now expected to have a discussion with coach Wittman prior to tip-off and it will be up Beal as to whether or not he will play. Owners will want to check back before the game for updates, as Beal would be a must-start player if active for his 3-point shooting. If he can't go, expect Garrett Temple to enjoy the glory for at least one more game.
Nov 19 - 12:19 PM

Bradley Beal (wrist) is set to make his season debut against the Mavericks on Wednesday.

This is exciting news for his owners, as Beal is expected to hit the ground running after he was able to stay in shape while rehabbing his wrist. Beal is an elite 3-point shooter, and barring a setback, he needs to be in all lineups going forward and we will let you know how he fares after the game. Meanwhile, Garrett Temple's value will take a huge hit and he should be cut in almost all leagues.
