Matthew Dellavedova scored five points with three assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.
The boo birds were out in force at Oracle, but that didn't stop Dellavedova from a somewhat dirty foul on Stephen Curry in the second half. Delly is way behind Malcolm Brogdon and has very little fantasy value. Mar 19 - 1:34 AM

Matthew Dellavedova shifted to the Bucks' bench on Wednesday, where he picked up 12 points, three 3-pointers, three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.

Delly hadn't cracked 28 minutes in his previous six games -- Giannis Antetokounmpo was in foul trouble early, which helped, but the shift to the bench didn't have a clear impact on his overall role. Minutes aren't the real issue for his fantasy value though -- over the past dozen games he's averaging 9.1 points on 39.6 percent shooting, 1.3 triples, 1.7 rebounds, 4.1 assists and a miserly 0.2 steals, with zero blocks.
Mar 16 - 2:08 AM

Matthew Dellavedova will come off the bench on Wednesday.

Malcolm Brogdon is getting the start vs. Chris Paul and the Clippers tonight. Now that Brogdon (back) is healthy, this move is likely to stick down the stretch.
Mar 15 - 9:19 PM

Matthew Dellavedova started his second straight game on Saturday vs. the Wolves and scored 16 points in 28 minutes.

He flopped in Friday's start with eight points on 2-of-7 shooting, but there's not much to see here with Malcolm Brogdon (back) possibly returning on Monday vs. the Grizzlies. Delly is just a short-term streaming option for now with a low floor. He shot 5-of-12 from the field and added two assists, one rebound and four triples.
Mar 11 - 10:46 PM

Matthew Dellavedova started at point guard on Friday vs. the Pacers and scored eight points on 2-of-7 shooting.

Malcolm Brogdon (back) wasn't able to play, but the injury isn't serious and he could be back in the lineup on Saturday vs. the Wolves. Delly played just 24 minutes and basically split the PG duties with Jason Terry down the middle, adding three assists, one triple and three turnovers. He's a deep-league option at best, even if Brogdon misses more time.
Mar 10 - 10:38 PM

Matthew Dellavedova will start for Malcolm Brogdon (back) against the Pacers on Friday.

It'll be his first start since Feb. 27 and he did play 32 minutes during that game. Dellavedova should be looking at minutes in the mid-30s tonight and will likely be taking a handful of treys. Giannis Antetokounmpo should be handling the ball a lot in this game, so Delly's upside isn't the greatest. He's still a viable DFS play and a stream in season-long leagues. It's tough to drop anything with value for him because Brogdon may not be out long.
Mar 10 - 6:28 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored 15 points with eight assists in Friday's win over the Clippers.

He came off the bench behind Malcolm Brogdon for the second straight game, but still played 36 minutes with the rookie getting into some foul trouble. Delly shot 6-of-9 from the field and added one rebound and one triple, but we're not expecting many more lines like this from the Aussie. He was a borderline fantasy option when he was the starter, so his outlook isn't the greatest as a reserve.
Mar 3 - 11:12 PM

Matthew Dellavedova will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

Malcolm Brogdon will be returning to the starting five tonight, and that should be a lineup move that sticks, but who knows with Jason Kidd. Delly wasn't worth owning as a starter, and his value will only get worse with the second unit. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 1 - 6:30 PM

Matthew Dellavedova finished with just four points, six assists and three rebounds over 32 minutes in Monday's 102-95 road loss against the Cavaliers.

Delly missed eight of his 10 attempts from the field, including all five of his triple tries. The good news is he only turned the ball over once. He has really struggled with his shot over the past three games, hitting just three of his 22 shot attempts (.136) while misfiring on all 11 tries from behind the arc. His fantasy appeal is limited to the deepest of formats right now, and he should even be reserved there until he gets somewhat back on track.
Feb 27 - 9:51 PM

Matthew Dellavedova was quiet in 15 minutes vs. Miami on Wednesday, scoring five points on 2-of-6 shooting with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer.

The starting unit got clobbered tonight and Malcolm Brogdon (33 minutes) was playing well off the bench, with the result that Delly played his fewest minute since Jan. 20. Khris Middleton's return to the backcourt rotation does Dellavedova no favors, which is one more reason to leave him untouched.
Feb 9 - 12:43 AM

Matthew Dellavedova scored four points with four rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and three turnovers in 31 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.

He's not really much of scorer anyway with his 16.0 usage rate, so it's possible Khris Middleton (hamstring) doesn't hurt him at all. Still, even if he hurts him a little bit, Dellavedova hasn't done enough to be owned anyway.
Feb 4 - 3:07 AM

Matthew Dellavedova played 23 minutes on Friday vs. the Raptors and scored 11 points on 3-of-9 shooting.

He also added two rebounds, two assists, one steal and three triples, but he split the PG minutes with Malcolm Brogdon tonight and they didn't log any minutes beside each other -- Rashad Vaughn entered the rotation and played 30 minutes, but it was likely just a fluke. Delly was coming off two strong games, so give him another chance if you picked him up.
Jan 27 - 11:32 PM

Matthew Dellavedova started again on Monday vs. the Rockets and had 16 points with seven assists.

He played 31 minutes compared to 30 minutes for Malcolm Brogdon, but both guards should be heavily involved going forward. Delly added three rebounds, two triples and three turnovers, and considering he was coming off a 15-point game with seven assists, two rebounds and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes on Saturday, feel free to give him a look if you need a low-end guard.
Jan 23 - 11:55 PM

Matthew Dellavedova hit 5-of-8 shots for 15 points, seven assists, two rebounds and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes on Saturday against the Heat.

The move into the starting lineup helped the slumping Dellavedova, who scored more than 10 points for the first time since Dec. 28. Although this was refreshing to see, fantasy owners can leave him on waivers, as he does not produce like he did tonight on a consistent basis. However, if he sticks in the starting unit over Malcolm Brogdon, he's at least worth putting on your watch list in case he starts playing like this on the regular.
Jan 21 - 10:07 PM

Matt Dellavedova will start and Malcolm Brogdon will come off the bench against the Heat on Saturday.

This is designed to get Dellavedova going and get out of a slump, according to coach Jason Kidd. It could be a one-time thing for Delly and he wasn't playing well even when he was a starter before the injury, so leave him on the wire for now.
