The Bulls were supposed to take a step forward with their young core. A lot of teams are supposed to do a lot of things...

Shams Charania is reporting that the Bulls plan on releasing Antonio Blakeney.
Blakeney has proven to be an elite scorer at the G-League level but has yet to carry that over in the NBA. With Denzel Valentine returning to the court this season and the Bulls adding a few point guards into the mix, Blakeney was looking at another season on the edge of the rotation. Players in 30-team leagues should keep an eye out to see where he lands.

Antonio Blakeney played 14 minutes in the season finale on Wednesday as the Bulls fell to the Sixers.
After spending much of the 2017-18 season in the G-League, and frankly, dominating the G-League, he played 56 games in the NBA this season. It didn't amount to much as he finished right around the 430th best player in 8 and 9-cat formats.

Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion, knee) is doubtful to play on Saturday vs. the Raptors.
With LaVine looking like he’ll miss another one for the tanking Bulls, it’ll once again be Shaq Harrison, Wayne Selden and Antonio Blakeney getting a whole lot of usage. Harrison is the best bet to produce of those three.

The Bulls will start Shaq Harrison, Antonio Blakeney, Wayne Selden, Brandon Sampson and Robin Lopez on Wednesday night against the Blazers.
Chicago is without Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine, Otto Porter and Lauri Markkanen, so everyone's getting into the pool. Lopez is the safest option while Harrison should also be started in most formats given his quality play of late. Beyond that, Blakeney and Selden are deep-league darts for points and threes, while Ryan Arcidiacono is a streaming option for assists off the bench. We're not all that interested in Sampson from a fantasy perspective but the Bulls are missing so many players that everyone's bound to get decent run tonight, so nobody's truly off the table.

Antonio Blakeney rejoined the rotation with Otto Porter (rest) on Sunday and scored 17 points on 8-of-13 from the field.
Blakeney scored 13 of his points in the fourth and is a microwave type at the end of Chicago's bench. He's generally not this efficient but owners in 30-team leagues can consider him a scoring specialist if he sticks in the rotation.

The Bulls have assigned Antonio Blakeney to the G-League on Sunday.
Blakeney has played over 10 minutes for the Bulls just once since January 11. His G-League numbers are at 32.0 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.8 triples across 32 games so he has the ability to put up numbers if given the chance but is currently out of the rotation.

Antonio Blakeney reemerged on Wednesday night and scored 11 points with four rebounds and a 3-pointer while shooting 5-for-12 in 24 minutes.
Blakeney was dropped from the rotation for much of December but wasn't shy about maximizing his chances tonight, getting up six shots in his first five minutes. He cooled off after and we'll see if he becomes part of the regular rotation again. he's only a percentage-killing, hope-and-pray scoring option in super deep fantasy leagues.

Antonio Blakeney wasn't shy on Saturday night, hitting six of his 19 shots to finish with 13 points, three rebounds and one assist against the Raptors.
Blakeney played a team-high 33 minutes but it's hard to argue that he was productive. That's the quandary that deep-league owners face, as his scoring upside might not be worth the far-more-frequent percentage-destroying lines.

Antonio Blakeney made some noise on Friday as he outplayed the other Bulls point guards, posting 18 points (8-of-14 shooting) with two rebounds, two treys and one assist.
Yup, that came out of nowhere for sure as the last time Blakeney pinged on fantasy radars was on November 5 when he scored 17 points against the Knicks. Starter Ryan Arcidiacono fell flat with three points, two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes. Leave Blakeney on the wires until he's assured of steady minutes.

Antonio Blakeney scored 17 points on 6-of-13 shooting in Monday's win over the Knicks.
Blakeney added a 3-pointer, two steals and a block in 20 minutes off the bench. Deep league owners can pick him up for some scoring punch given the general scarcity of impactful points totals on the waiver wire, but just know that his next category-killing shooting line is probably right around the corner.

Antonio Blakeney had two points on 0-of-6 shooting in nine minutes in the loss to the Rockets on Saturday.
After scoring 10 or more points in four of his last five games, this performance was not something you would like to see. His minutes will fluctuate and his value is limited, so he is not worth owing in anything other than super deep leagues.

Antonio Blakeney came off the bench and scored 22 points (three 3s) to go with three boards and a turnover in Friday's close home loss to the Pacers.
Blakeney played 26 minutes including down the stretch in crunch time as his potential game-winning shot was blocked by Myles Turner. He's at top-200 value right now but has scored at least 10 points in four of the last five games. His lack of peripheral stats is a bummer but very deep leagues needing scoring can keep watch.
With little season-long value left on the wire, who should we turn to for specific category boosts?
