Miles Plumlee fell from the starting lineup on Sunday and wound up going scoreless in just three minutes off the bench.
We warned against picking up Plumlee despite his recent starting gig, and this is exactly why. Jason Kidd's center rotation has been chaotic all year and he appears no closer to settling it down, which will likely result in night-to-night fluctuations. As far as Plumlee is concerned, this is a situation to avoid. Nov 27 - 9:50 PM

Miles Plumlee will return to the bench for Sunday's game against the Magic.

Jason Kidd likes to mix-and-match his starting center based on the matchup, and while it was Plumlee's turn to run with the starters on Friday night against Phoenix, he'll return to a bench role tonight for a matchup against an Orlando team that likes to play big. Plumlee isn't worth owning in most leagues, regardless of how he enters the game.
Nov 27 - 4:58 PM

Miles Plumlee shifted into the Bucks' starting lineup on Friday, posting five points, three rebounds and two steals in 20 minutes of action.

Plumlee's stint as a starter earlier this season is instructive -- he averaged a mere 3.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 14.3 minutes per game. Jason Kidd frequently gives him a quick hook and there's no reason to expect Plumlee to help owners outside of the deepest leagues.

Miles Plumlee will start against the Raptors on Friday with John Henson moving to the bench.

Coach Jason Kidd has been mixing it up and usually wants to roll with just two centers, so this might be a night for Greg Monroe. Plumlee has very little value as the starter.
Nov 25 - 6:32 PM

Miles Plumlee will not start against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

About time. Henson has played much better while Plumlee has struggled. Plum-Dawg might be a DNP-CD.
Nov 12 - 6:57 PM

Miles Plumlee was moved to the bench in the second half on Thursday, finishing with three fouls and three missed shots from the field.

Not good. Plumlee has been quiet all season and coach Jason Kidd may have seen too much. Plumlee has been outplayed all season by John Henson, so the move isn't a surprise. He isn't worth owning in almost any league regardless.
Nov 10 - 10:43 PM

Miles Plumlee started again on Sunday and posted eight points, five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 17 minutes.

Plumlee played a combined 16 minutes in the Bucks' first two games, but he avoided a quick hook from coach Jason Kidd tonight. John Henson played 12 minutes off the bench, Greg Monroe played 18 minutes, and it's futile to guess which center will play the most vs. New Orleans on Tuesday.
Oct 30 - 8:32 PM

Miles Plumlee was ineffective as a starter on Wednesday, finishing scoreless with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in eight minutes.

Plumlee lasted less than four minutes in the third quarter and didn't get back on the court, so there are no guarantees that he'll get another start vs. Brooklyn on Saturday. Suffice to say, he's off the radar in standard leagues.
Oct 27 - 12:05 AM

Miles Plumlee is starting on Wednesday.

The Bucks used John Henson as a backup power forward at times, so the flexibility there makes Plulmee the starting option. Henson has better fantasy value for his blocks, though. Greg Monroe will still get big minutes off the bench and isn't affected too much with this move.
Oct 26 - 6:26 PM

Miles Plumlee has been practicing with the starting unit, so it looks like he'll be Milwaukee's starting center for Wednesday's regular-season opener against Charlotte.

Through 14 games as a starter last season, Plumlee only managed to contribute averages of 6.6 points, 5.4 boards and 1.0 block, so he's a good example of how starting doesn't necessarily lead to fantasy value. Greg Monroe will come off the bench.
Oct 25 - 3:13 PM

Miles Plumlee chipped in 10 points and eight boards in 19 minutes on Wednesday, going 4-of-5 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line.

The points and rebounds were both preseason highs for Plumlee, which says plenty about his fantasy outlook. Even as the Bucks' presumptive starting center, he's only worth a glance in deep leagues.
Oct 19 - 10:34 PM

Matthew Dellavedova, Orlando Johnson, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Miles Plumlee will start on Saturday.

Orlando Johnson starting in the preseason is peak preseason for the Bucks. We'll see how Plumlee does in the starting lineup.
Oct 15 - 7:46 PM

Miles Plumlee and Rashad Vaughn are expected to start for the Bucks this season.

Wow. Even with Greg Monroe on the trade block, this is surprising. The Bucks did give Plumlee a four-year, $52 million deal over the summer, so they clearly believe in him. The Bucks also have John Henson signed to a long-term deal, so they could have three centers vying for minutes unless a trade opens things up. Plumlee averaged 6.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.0 block in 14 starts last season, so he's not exactly an attractive fantasy asset. We should have more clarity once camp officially begins on Tuesday.
Sep 26 - 4:25 PM

The Bucks have officially re-signed Miles Plumlee.

"Miles is an athletic big man that gives us added depth on the frontline," said Bucks' GM John Hammond. "He does a really good job as a finisher around the basket and also as a rim protector on the defensive end. We’re very happy to have him back with the Bucks." Miles is unlikely to have much fantasy value at all competing for minutes with the likes of Thon Maker, Mirza Teletovic and John Henson.
Aug 2 - 6:20 PM

The Bucks and Miles Plumlee have reportedly agreed to a four-year, $52 million deal.

Plumlee had multiple suitors but the Bucks were able to retain him without matching an offer sheet, offering an average annual salary of $13 million. He'd be an intriguing fantasy option if Greg Monroe is traded, with per-36-minute averages of 11.2 points, 10.6 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.8 blocks, but for now he's only worth a look in deep formats.
