Date:

Miles Plumlee will come off the bench on Monday night.

It is likely going to stick for the Suns. Plumlee has been unable to do much on either end and the Suns are not playing well, so the move makes sense. Plumlee is not worth owning in the vast majority of leagues.
Dec 15 - 8:01 PM

Miles Plumlee scored 10 points on 5-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, two steals and two blocks over 27 minutes in Friday's loss.

It's a good defensive line but we'll need to see more of this before recommending Plumlee in 12-team formats. Alex Len played just 12 minutes tonight and had only a steal and block in the box.
Dec 13 - 3:22 AM

Miles Plumlee went 6-of-6 from the field on Sunday and finished with 12 points, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 25 minutes.

He is likely going to be in a timeshare with Alex Len for the Foreseeable future, but lines like this will get him more playing time. Regardless, Plumlee will be strictly a deep league asset until he strings together a few good games. Owners in standard leagues can watch him from the waiver wire.
Nov 30 - 11:14 PM

Miles Plumlee played a surprising 30 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday with six points, seven rebounds, two assists and four blocks.

He was dominated on Monday, but coach Jeff Hornacek gave him a little extra run. Plumlee's minutes really disappeared before tonight, so it would be another surprise to see him at 30 minutes again. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 27 - 3:10 AM

Miles Plumlee played five minutes against the Raptors on Monday with two points, two boards and three fouls.

Jonas Valanciunas' season highlight reel will likely have a lot of Plumlee in the background. Plumlee was a ghost on defense and this isn't the first time he's failed miserably in the low post. His minutes are not going to be there and Alex Len closed some ground tonight.
Nov 24 - 11:52 PM

Miles Plumlee hit 1-of-3 shots for two points and 10 rebounds in 23 minutes on Wednesday.

Alex Len had six points, four rebounds and five fouls in just 16 minutes, and probably would have played more without the foul trouble. This is a position battle to keep a close eye on, as Len could be in the process of stealing Plumlee's job as we speak.
Nov 20 - 1:00 AM

Miles Plumee did not score in 19 minutes against the Celtics on Monday with one rebound and two blocks.

He was riding the bench down the stretch as Alex Len stayed hot. Plumlee has been quiet for two consecutive games and it's pretty clear he won't be getting more than 24 minutes per game as long as Len is around. Len looks like the better player to own.
Nov 17 - 11:26 PM

Miles Plumlee scored 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 33 minutes on Friday against the Hornets.

Plumlee has worked his way into standard leagues as a low-end center, averaging 7.2 points with 6.9 boards, 0.8 steals and 1.1 blocks. With good percentages to boot, he should be owned in most formats.
Nov 15 - 3:10 AM

Miles Plumlee flirted with a double-double against Nets on Wednesday with eight points, 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

He's been able to keep Alex Len at bay and has now played at least 32 minutes in each of his last three games. Plumlee hasn't set the world on fire outside of a nice 15-point, 16- board game on Nov. 5, so he's just fringe player to own in standard leagues.
Nov 13 - 1:36 AM

Miles Plumlee played just 18 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday with two points, two boards, one steal and two blocks.

He's a great example of how starting doesn't necessarily translate to fantasy value. Plumlee shouldn't be owned in even 20-team leagues.
Nov 6 - 1:10 AM

Miles Plumlee played 24 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday with six points, two boards and one block.

Alex Len is coming for his minutes and Plumlee has been struggling. He wasn't really worth owning to begin with, so owners in even deep leagues might want to start looking for a replacement.
Nov 2 - 2:21 AM

Miles Plumlee committed five fouls in 25 minute against the Lakers on Wednesday with 10 points, six boards, one steal and one block.

Just like his brother Mason, he had a couple egregious fouls and was easily the worst player in the starting five tonight. Plumlee should still be safe as the starter and would really have to have a meltdown, but the Suns going with smaller lineups will keep his minutes and touches limited. Fantasy owners in 16-team leagues can probably do better.
Oct 30 - 3:47 AM

The Suns exercised their option on Miles Plumlee.

It was an easy call to keep him on his rookie deal. Plumlee was a steal from the Pacers in the Luis Scola deal and he'll start at center on opening night. Although, his game doesn't translate to fantasy very well.

Miles Plumlee had eight points and eight rebounds in 18 minutes on Wednesday.

His brother, Mason, is a better fantasy option while Brook Lopez is out for the Nets, but Miles has a starting job in Phoenix until further notice.
