Bucks rookie Jabari Parker returned to double-digits on Tuesday, scoring 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting in a home win vs. Detroit.
He added nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in just 27 minutes of action, and continues to return steady but unremarkable top-175 fantasy value. His minutes should rise as the season progresses, making him a good guy to target before he gets on a roll. Bucks writer Andrew Gruman pointed out an odd stat during the game, which is worth keeping an eye on -- Parker has made 22-of-30 free throws on the road this season, but he's just 0-of-6 at home.

Jabari Parker scored six points on 3-of-11 from the field against the Wizards on Saturday with five rebounds and two steals.

He looked good in his past couple games, but Parker is a rookie after all. His fantasy owners should expect him to have some down games in the next couple months, but at least the Bucks are committed to him.

Jabari Parker was the only Bucks player to truly survive Friday night's 39-point loss to the Raptors, scoring 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting with six rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one three in 27 minutes.

Believe it or not the game wasn't as close as the score entailed. Larry Sanders went for eight and five in 21 minutes, Brandon Knight was held to 11 points, two rebounds, two assists and a three, O.J. Mayo was held scoreless in nine minutes, and Ersan Ilyasova scored 14 points with two threes in 21 minutes off the bench. Owners need to ignore this game for evaluation purposes, but it was nice to see Parker have a versatile line for once. He's heating up.
Nov 21 - 11:02 PM

Jabari Parker scored a career-high 23 points against the Nets on Wednesday in a triple-overtime win to go with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals.

He made 8-of-13 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line. Parker is taking less 3-pointers these days, which is probably a good sign because he's made just 21.4 percent from beyond the arc on the season. He'll be inconsistent, but his fantasy owners can expect him to get it going as the year goes on.
Nov 20 - 1:15 AM

Jabari Parker was aggressive in the first half of Sunday's game, finishing the Bucks' road victory with 13 points with six rebounds, one assist and two steals

The Bucks rank in the bottom five for team FG percentage (43.4 percent) and they're 28th in free throw attempts per game (18.7), which helps to explain why they're 29th in offensive efficiency. Parker made 5-of-11 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs and was effective early before taking a backseat in the second half, and it would be a shock if his role didn't expand throughout the course of Milwaukee's season.
Nov 16 - 8:51 PM

Jabari Parker was quiet in Friday's loss to the Magic, scoring six points on 2-of-5 shooting with three rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes.

Hanging around the top-200 he's certainly not playable and as a stash he's going to have to turn up the volume in his bread and butter areas of scoring and rebounding in the second half of the year. Otherwise, his lack of versatility is going to hurt too much and the exercise will be all for naught. It's hard to call him a must-own player with all that going on.
Nov 14 - 10:23 PM

Jabari Parker was benched in Tuesday's win over the Thunder, finishing with just six points, four boards and three assists in 21 minutes.

This is the second straight game in which he was benched down the stretch and this has to be concerning for owners. It will be interesting to see if this becomes a trend as coach Kidd is known for being sporadic with his rotations. Parker is still a must-own player for his upside and owners just have to exercise patience for now.
Nov 11 - 11:32 PM

Jabari Parker scored 18 points on 8-of-14 shooting with five rebounds and three steals over 28 minutes in Friday's loss to the Pistons.

Parker has been inconsistent to start the season and that's to be expected for a rookie playing in an 11-man rotation. Hang onto him but start him at your own risk.
Nov 8 - 1:52 AM

Jabari Parker scored eight points with six rebounds against the Bulls on Wednesday.

He played both forward spots and his versatility is part of the reason why the Bucks have such a messy rotation. In fact, 11 players played at least 12 minutes tonight, which is ridiculous. Parker will do most of his work in the second half and isn't an absolute must-start player in shallow leagues right now.
Nov 5 - 10:56 PM

Jabari Parker double-doubled against the Wizards on Saturday with 13 points, 11 rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He did shoot 5-of-17 from the field and turned it over five times, so it wasn't all good for the rookie. Parker entered this game shooting 40.0 percent from the field and it looks pretty clear that he won't be shooting above 45 percent from the field. Still, he's worth starting in just about all leagues right now.
Nov 2 - 12:52 AM

Jabari Parker double-doubled for 11 points, 10 boards, a steal and a three in 31 minutes on Friday against the Sixers.

Parker was quiet on Wednesday and he's likely to be inconsistent for much of the year, but there is enough upside to hang on and see how it all plays out. The Bucks are going to feed him as many minutes as he can handle as the centerpiece of their arena funding effort, not to mention because they'd like to win some games too.
Nov 1 - 1:03 AM

Jabari Parker started at power forward and hit 3-of-9 shots for eight points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 37 minutes.

Not the start his owners were hoping for, but the minutes were there and he'll figure this out. While Milwaukee's rotation and minutes could be a mess all year, Parker seems assured of getting his 35 minutes a night. Don't panic.
Oct 29 - 10:12 PM

Jabari Parker stated during a recent interview that his goal for this season is to make the playoffs, not the Rookie of the Year award.

Parker may have to settle for a Rookie of the Year distinction, as his Bucks team is simply not very good. Still it's a good sign that Parker is setting his goals so high, and he's been billed as the most "NBA-ready" player coming out of the 2014 draft class. He had a nice preseason, and he doesn't really have anyone to question him for minutes in Milwaukee. Parker's first NBA game will be on Wednesday as the Bucks take on the Hornets.
Oct 28 - 5:00 PM

Jabari Parker will play both forward positions this season, but Bucks head coach Jason Kidd said the rookie will primarily be used at power forward.

Entering the 2014-15 season as the favorite for Rookie of the Year, Parker's versatility is a trait that the Bucks plan to take advantage of. "Jabari is a special player," Kidd said. "He can play both positions. We'll probably look at him playing the 4." While Parker's usage will primarily affect the playing time of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and John Henson, an uptick of minutes at power forward would seem to be good news for Antetokounmpo's owners.

Jabari Parker scored a team-high 18 points against the Wolves on Wednesday with nine rebounds in 33 minutes.

He had 150 percent of the scoring output of the other four guys in the starting five with their 12 points. Parker really showed off a lot of weapons on offense and he doesn't look like a rookie out there. He's the favorite for Rookie of the Year and his stats should translate to fantasy. It'll be tough for him to live up to his high ADP, but he's still worth a look in the middle rounds.
