Tayshaun Prince came off the Grizzlies' bench on Tuesday for 11 points, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two assists and one steal in 29 minutes.
The much-maligned veteran SF has suddenly averaged 30.3 minutes over the past three games. He's a combined 9-of-18 from downtown this season, which is crucial for the perimeter-deprived Grizzlies' offense, and he's worth a look in deep leagues while he's scorching the nets in a sizeable bench role.

Tayshaun Prince came out of nowhere to score 20 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 8-of-11 shots (including four threes) with five rebounds, two assists and a block in 33 minutes.

Maybe Prince got all fired up after reports hit the wire that the Cavs were interested in him, but whatever the reason may be for this outburst it's something for owners to ignore in almost every format.
Dec 6 - 2:06 AM

The Cavs are reportedly interested in acquiring Tayshaun Prince, who has fallen out of the rotation in Memphis.

The Cavs are a very deep team, and Prince is at the end of his career, so he wouldn't have much value in Cleveland. This is just something to make a note of for now.
Dec 5 - 10:03 AM

Tayshaun Prince vanished vs. the Clippers on Sunday, and he was the only player on the Grizzlies' active roster to pick up a DNP-CD.

Prince is a terrible fantasy option whether he's coming off the bench or starting at SF, as he did in the Grizzlies' previous game. He's not contributing in ways that aren't reflected in the boxscore, either, as his PER of 8.9 will attest.
Nov 23 - 9:19 PM

Tayshaun Prince will start in place of Tony Allen (illness) Friday vs. the Celtics.

Prince is going to get some increased opportunity tonight with Allen and Quincy Pondexter sidelined, but that doesn't mean much. He's averaging 7.2 points and 2.6 rebounds with the starting unit, and with Allen and Pondexter not expected to be out long, he's not worth an add in almost any league.
Nov 21 - 7:59 PM

Tayshaun Prince hit 6-of-8 shots and scored a season-high 15 points with three rebounds and one assist on Wednesday.

Several of his teammates were out with the flu, including Tony Allen and Courtney Lee, which resulted in a start for Prince. He's been awful this season and once his mates are back in action, you can forget about him.
Nov 20 - 2:18 AM

Tayshaun Prince will move back to the bench on Monday.

He has been starting the past two games and the Grizzlies haven't fared well while he's out there. Prince can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Nov 17 - 7:54 PM

Tayshaun Prince will draw another start on Saturday, and Courtney Lee will come off the bench.

We don't understand what the Grizzlies see in Prince but he will get the nod with the first unit once again. Prince started on Thursday but ended up playing only 11 minutes and scored two points, so Lee's owners shouldn't be too concerned. Prince can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Nov 15 - 8:15 PM

Tayshaun Prince started for the Grizzlies on Thursday, playing 11 minutes for two points, one assist and nothing else.

Why? Prince had a plus-minus of minus-20 in just those 11 minutes while off-the-bench Courtney Lee was plus-20. OK then.
Nov 13 - 11:28 PM

Tayshaun Prince started over Courtney Lee on Thursday against the Kings.

This comes out of nowhere and it's probably a matchup-based move. Lee has been phenomenal all season and his fantasy owners shouldn't panic. Prince has very little fantasy value.
Nov 13 - 8:19 PM

Tayshaun Prince played 27 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday with eight points, two rebounds, one assist and two steals.

He shot 3-of-10 from the field and it's hard to guess why he saw so much run while Vince Carter received a DNP-CD. Prince has no fantasy value in almost any league.
Nov 9 - 1:04 AM

Tayshaun Prince did not play against the Suns on Wednesday.

You can read the next blurb. Prince is out of the rotation.
Nov 6 - 1:38 AM

Tayshaun Prince is getting a chance to play again due to Courtney Lee's concussion.

After being relegated to the Grizzlies' bench to start the season, Prince is making the most of his opportunity to play due to Lee's concussion. After the veteran scored 14 points to go along with five rebounds and one trey during Monday's win against New Orleans, Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger said, ""I’m very happy for Tayshaun Prince. He’s a guy who didn’t play the first game, didn’t play the first half in Indiana, and then starts the second half in Indiana. His plus/minus was plus 15 in Indiana in the second half." While it's nice to see Prince get some run, he doesn't offer much to fantasy owners in standard leagues and can safely be left on waiver wires.
Nov 4 - 11:17 AM

Tayshaun Prince scored 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and no other stats in 33 minutes on Monday against the Pelicans.

This is pretty much his ceiling and with Courtney Lee (concussion) coming back soon there's no reason to give him a look in most formats. Zach Randolph added 15 and 11 with four assists and two steals, and Marc Gasol went for 16 and 11 with two assists and three blocks in the Grizzlies' win.
Nov 4 - 12:41 AM

Tayshaun Prince played 18 minutes in the starting lineup on Saturday with two points, three rebounds and one assist.

He shot 1-of-5 from the field and looks like he's playing in slow motion. Even with Courtney Lee (head) out for a while, Prince still is more of a pauper in fantasy leagues.
