Justin Holiday hit 4-of-11 shots to score 12 points on Wednesday, adding two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes.
Holiday is averaging 2.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.0 blocks over the past three games, while shooting a combined 11-of-43 from the field (25.6 percent). That about sums up his lack of fantasy appeal in the bulk of formats, and there should be 3-point specialists available who won't drag you down in other categories. Nov 23 - 12:38 AM

Justin Holiday scored 13 points with three 3-pointers, three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes on Sunday, but he shot just 5-of-20 from the field without any FT attempts.

David Nwaba (ankle) will "most likely" be out again vs. the Lakers on Tuesday, according to coach Fred Hoiberg, so Holiday's playing time should be safe in the short-term. That said, his heavily-weighted 35.9% shooting is dragging down his value in most fantasy formats, and the eventual return of Nwaba and Zach LaVine (knee) makes him an obvious sell-high player.
Nov 19 - 11:08 PM

Justin Holiday scored a season-high 27 points in Friday's 123-120 win over the Hornets, hitting 10-of-15 shots and 3-of-3 free throws.

He was returning from a one-game absence for personal reasons and finished two points shy of his career-high. Holiday nailed four triples in the win, adding three rebounds, three steals and one block in 36 minutes, Zach LaVine (knee) isn't expected back until mid-December, so there are more good times ahead for Holiday's owners.

Justin Holiday (personal) will start on Friday vs. the Hornets.

He's back after a one-game absence. Holiday will join Lauri Markkanen and Robin Lopez in the first unit, but coach Fred Hoiberg hasn't decided who he will start in the other two spots. If you need triples, Holiday is your guy with averages of 14.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.5 triples.
Nov 16 - 1:15 PM

Coach Fred Hoiberg said Justin Holiday (personal) would not play Wednesday vs. OKC.

Congrats are in order, as Holiday is away from the team due to the birth of his first child. Holliday leads the Bulls in minutes (33.9 per game) and field goal attempts (14.3), so there will be plenty of playing time and scoring opportunities to go around on Wednesday. Coach Hoiberg said that Kris Dunn will likely make his first start of the season but that he was unsure who would start at small forward. Lauri Markkanen (ankle) is expected to play and could be leaned on heavily.
Nov 14 - 12:13 PM

Justin Holiday finished with just three points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and a blocked shots across 25 minutes Saturday in San Antonio.

Holiday must've felt like he was shooting at a basket with a lid, hitting just 1-of-10 from the floor, although his successful make was a 3-pointer. With a young player there will be uneven performances, and this certainly fit that description. Hopefully it doesn't turn into a prolonged shooting slump and he can get back on track Wednesday in Oklahoma City.
Nov 11 - 11:59 PM

Justin Holiday posted 14 points, four assists, three rebounds and a steal with just one turnover across 30 minutes Friday against the Pacers.

Holiday was the only starter to make more shots than he missed, finishing 6-of-11 from the field, while also hitting 2-of-5 from behind the arc. There's something about Fridays that agrees with Holiday. He has missed more shots than he has made in all but two of his 10 outings this season. Both of the good shooting nights have been on Friday, as he is 13-of-23 (56.5 percent) in the two outings.
Nov 10 - 11:31 PM

Justin Holiday broke out of his slump on Friday vs. the Magic with 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting.

After a dominant preseason, Holiday was shooting just 31.2 percent from the field in his last six games. "My shot isn’t falling," Holiday said prior to tonight. "But I’m not worried about that in terms of what am I doing wrong? I’m just shooting because I know what you’re supposed to do in situations like this." Credit Holiday for staying aggressive, and his fantasy owners can feel more confident with his slump hopefully behind him. He added two rebounds, two assists, one steal and two triples and will look to keep it going on Saturday vs. the Pelicans.
Nov 3 - 9:33 PM

Justin Holiday connected on just 4-of-16 from the floor in Saturday's 101-69 loss against the Thunder, finishing with 11 points.

Holiday was jacking up 3-pointers all night, but he hit just 3-of-10 from behind the arc while turning it over four times in his 32 minutes. He also had a terrible minus-18 rating, worst among the team's starting five. Head coach Fred Hoiberg is looking for the right combinations right now, and all jobs are up for grabs. Holiday will need to display more efficiency if he wants to keep a big piece of the pie for himself.
Oct 28 - 11:03 PM

Justin Holiday hit 8-of-17 shots and four 3-pointers for a season-high 25 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 37 minutes of Tuesday's 119-112 loss to the Cavs.

The Bulls need scorers and Holiday got hot in the preseason, and has carried it over into the regular season. He scored 15 points in each of his previous two games and even though his team has lost all three of its games, Holiday should be locked and loaded into the starting lineup and firing at will all season. Make sure he's not accidentally sitting on the waiver wire in your league.
Oct 24 - 9:42 PM

Justin Holiday made 5-of-16 from the field for 15 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

He is the trigger man and attempted a whopping 12 treys in this game. Holiday is a career 34.2 percent shooter from deep, but he did light it up with the Bulls at 43.3 percent on 60 attempts two seasons ago. The minutes are clearly going to be there and the offense is suited for him, so Holiday should be owned in all standard leagues.
Oct 19 - 10:17 PM

Justin Holiday scored 17 points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers on Friday.

He is likely locked and loaded for minutes around 30 and he may even be the leading scorer on this club. Holiday is coming off a 28-point game on Tuesday, and coach Fred Hoiberg really wants his team to play with pace and shoot treys. These are big positives for a 28-year-old journeyman in Holiday, so he's clearly moving to the 100-150 section of all standard drafts.
Oct 13 - 10:52 PM

Justin Holiday brought his A game on Tuesday and hit 8-of-16 shots, four 3-pointers and 8-of-8 free throws for 28 points, 11 rebounds and three steals in 28 minutes and a start.

The Bulls are going to be looking for offense this season with Zach LaVine injured and Jimmy Butler in Minnesota, and Holiday could be a big factor for them. He was fantastic on national television tonight and his draft stock just took a jump. He's still not worth drafting until the later rounds of your draft, but it does feel like he's primed for a nice season in Chicago. Put him on your radar.
Oct 10 - 10:12 PM

Fred Hoiberg expects to open the 2017-18 season with Jerian Grant, Justin Holiday, Paul Zipser, Nikola Mirotic and Robin Lopez as his starters.

Holiday has had a nice preseason run thus far with averages of 13.7 points, 4.3 boards, 2.3 assists, 3.0 triples, 1.3 steals and 1.7 turnovers per contest, although he's only managed to convert on 38.9 percent of his shot attempts, and he figures to lose minutes once Zach LaVine (knee) gets back to the court. Still, he might be someone to think about towards the later rounds in deep, points leagues.

Justin Holiday scored 21 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and five 3-pointers against the Bucks on Friday.

He did it all with his range and getting to the basket. Coach Fred Hoiberg said is going to want some energy from his guards and Holiday brought that tonight. "If [guards] aren’t going to get us up the floor quickly, I’m going to assume they’re tired and I’m going to have to make a change," Hoiberg said. It's usually a good idea to take a younger player on a bad team late in your draft, so Holiday certainly is in the mix to produce.
