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.
Jul 18 - 12:10 PM

There are several teams trying to free up cap space to sign Miles Plumlee, according to David Aldridge.

It's unclear which teams are interested in Plumlee, but Aldridge reports the restricted free agent has a few suitors. The 27-year-old only averaged 5.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 2015-16, but played just 14.3 minutes per game with the Bucks. While he'll never be a fantasy star, a move to the right team could make Plumlee an interesting late-round option on draft day.
Jul 7 - 10:30 AM

The Bucks have extended a qualifying offer to Miles Plumlee, making him a restricted free agent on July 1.

This will give the Bucks the ability to match opposing offers in free agency. Plumlee has previously said that he would like to re-sign with the Bucks, so it appears that the feeling is mutual. However, unless the Bucks trade Greg Monroe, there won't be many minutes available in Milwaukee's frontcourt.
Jun 28 - 9:48 PM

Miles Plumlee said he would like to re-sign with the Bucks this summer.

"I'm just really thankful for the opportunity to get out there and play," Plumlee said. "I love the game. I love the team here. I think we're building something really special and I hope to continue to be a part of it." He will be a restricted free agent, but the Bucks will likely prioritize bringing in some 3-point shooters first because both Greg Monroe and John Henson are signed to long-term contracts. Plumlee averaged 5.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 61 appearances for the Bucks.
Apr 18 - 10:21 AM

Miles Plumlee started Sunday's game in place of Greg Monroe (rest) and racked up eight points on 4-of-7 shooting with six rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 28 minutes.

If Jason Kidd's recent comments are any indication, the Bucks should make every effort to retain him in restricted free agency this summer. "He's done well no matter who he's playing with," Kidd said. "Different lineups, coming off the bench, starting, playing with two bigs, playing small. He's shown his versatility and he's playing at a very high level for us." If he stays in Milwaukee his fantasy appeal will be stifled by the presence of big men Greg Monroe and John Henson.
Apr 10 - 8:10 PM

Miles Plumlee will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the 76ers, with Greg Monroe (rest) unavailable.

While Plumlee will draw an extremely favorable matchup against the 76ers tonight, his averages of 6.5 points, 5.4 boards and 1.0 block through 13 starts this season show why he's not necessarily a lock for production despite the increased opportunity. He's not much more than a low-end punt in DFS.
Apr 10 - 3:46 PM

Miles Plumlee scored 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting Friday, to go with five boards, one assist, three steals and two turnovers in 20 minutes off the bench.

The steals were a nice surprise for a guy with just 16 on the season, but that's obviously not a trend that's going to continue. Plumlee shows up every now and again, but with meager averages of just 7.9 points, 5.0 boards and not much else since the break, he's not worth owning in most leagues.
Apr 8 - 11:01 PM

Miles Plumlee led Milwaukee's reserves with 12 points, seven boards and one block in 21 minutes on Sunday, going 4-of-10 from the field and 4-of-5 from the FT line.

This is the second time all season that Plumlee has attempted 10+ shots, and both times occurred in the Bucks' past three games. They made a concerted effort to feed him in the post tonight, with mixed results, and this is an encouraging twist for anyone relying on him in deep leagues. As long as Greg Monroe (14 points in 27 minutes) is healthy, however, there's no reason to target Plumlee in average leagues.
Mar 13 - 10:40 PM

Miles Plumlee came off the Bucks' bench on Wednesday for a season-high 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting, with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes.

Perhaps he just needed to be benched again to motivate him offensively -- this was his fifth double-digit game all season and the first in March. Plumlee makes the most of his limited shot attempts, and he rebounds well on a per-minute basis, but he's not a reliable fantasy option while Greg Monroe is healthy.
Mar 9 - 11:25 PM

Miles Plumlee will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

The Bucks will roll out a starting five of Jerryd Bayless, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Greg Monroe for Wednesday's game, and it'll be interesting to see just how long this lineup sticks. Plumlee was only putting up late-round value as a starter, and the move to the bench will likely return him to being a non-factor in nearly all leagues.

Miles Plumlee was not a factor during Sunday's loss to the Thunder, scoring just two points on 1-of-2 shooting to go with five rebounds, one block and one turnover in 18 minutes.

Plumlee has been clinging to late-round value over the past month with averages of 7.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.3 swats per game on 73.1 percent shooting from the field. He’s little more than a shot blocking specialist in really deep leagues.
