Eric Bledsoe stayed hot on Saturday, tallying 30 points on 12-of-14 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists and two triples, as the Bucks crushed the Magic in an easy win.
Bledsoe, who has worried owners on occasion this season with some lulls in productivity has swung the pendulum in the right direction recently. Over his last five games, Bledsoe has been scorching-hot on offense with 21.0 points on .526 shooting and 5.8 assists per game.

Eric Bledsoe was stellar in Sunday's 133-114 win over the Hawks as he tallied 24 points on 9-for-13 shooting to go along with 10 assists, two rebounds, one block, two steals and two 3-pointers.
It was Bledsoe's third double-double of the season and his first game in ten days to shoot over 50 percent from the field. Bledsoe struggled for a few weeks but has picked up his play recently. Hopefully Sunday's performance is a sign of things to come.

Eric Bledsoe (hamstring) will be available to play in Sunday's game vs. the Hawks.
Bledsoe was probable coming into this one so this doesn't come as much of a surprise. In his last outing Bledsoe played 28 minutes and dropped 18 points, eight rebounds and nine assists so definitely plug him into his lineup and see if he can keep it going.

Eric Bledsoe (sore left hamstring) is listed as probable ahead of Sunday's game against the Hawks.
Bledsoe was added to the injury report prior to Friday's game but he ended up coming through with 18-9-8 against the Wizards. If things take a turn and he can't play tomorrow it'll mean more minutes for George Hill and more usage for Malcolm Brogdon, but for now you should feel fairly safe penciling Bledsoe into lineups tomorrow.

Eric Bledsoe (sore left hamstring) racked up a near triple-double with 18 points (two 3s), nine assists, eight rebounds, three steals and one turnover in Friday's loss to the home Wizards.
Bledsoe continued his struggles shooting the ball (7-for-21 from the field, 2-of-4 from the line) but at least he looked active and plugged in the whole game. He's been pretty bad over the last two weeks (barely top-150) so hopefully this game helps him get back on track.

Eric Bledsoe (sore left hamstring) will play on Friday vs. the Wizards.
Bledsoe was previously called questionable but will be suiting up with no Giannis Antetokounmpo (sore right quad, left hip contusion). Hopefully, Giannis’ absence will help Bledsoe jump start his game as he’s fallen outside the top-120 over the last two weeks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (sore right quad, left hip contusion) will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards.
If you have another option in daily leagues you can make that move now. It’s likely just a maintenance day for Giannis as his services shouldn’t be needed against the lowly Wizards. Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe (sore left hamstring, playing) should get the largest boosts in usage. Donte DiVincenzo (right ankle, left heel) will join Giannis on the sidelines.

Eric Bledsoe is questionable for Friday's game with a hamstring injury.
Bledsoe has been a little quiet over the last couple games and it's unclear whether he's been bothered by a minor injury such as this. He's sitting outside the top-50 right now which is a little disappointing given his expectation.

Eric Bledsoe was shut down on Monday vs. the Jazz and was limited to scoring just six points on 3-of-11 shooting but contributed elsewhere as he posted four rebounds, six assists and three steals.
Bledsoe's .273 shooting from the field and his six turnovers this game were as pleasant to experience as stepping on a piece of Lego while barefoot. Yes, that cringe-worthy, at least relative to the standards Bledsoe has been held up to so far this season. He's not hit his stride on a consistent enough basis for us to call him a bankable early-round stud as we did in the past. Still, he's been good enough to chime in with top-50 value and should be reliable thereabouts, nightly volatility notwithstanding.

Eric Bledsoe finished Saturday's loss to the Raptors with 14 points, eight assists, two 3-pointers and two steals.
Bledsoe isn't quite where owners hoped he'd be with just top-50 value but he's got plenty of time to pile up those marginal gains the rest of the way. Even if he does fall a round shy of expectations, he's probably not the problem on any fantasy rosters that aren't up to par.

Eric Bledsoe hit 7-of-14 shots (0-for-2 3PTs, 4-of-4 FTs) with four rebounds, six assists and one steal over 30 minutes in Tuesday's blowout win over the Pistons.
Bledsoe had been struggling but he should be able to maintain his late-early round value going forward.

Eric Bledsoe's shot was off the mark on Saturday as the 28-year-old guard went 4-for-12 from the field to finish with 17 points, three rebounds, six assists and one steal.
Bledsoe has been off lately, posting top-120 value over the last week. This opens up a small buy-low window for a guard projected to finish in the top-50 in 8/9-cat formats.

Eric Bledsoe couldn't get in on the fun in Wednesday's win over the Pelicans, finishing with nine points, six rebounds, four assists and a 3-pointer in only 24 minutes of action.
This one didn't feature any garbage time, and perhaps Bledsoe's three fouls had something to do with it. George Hill logged 29 minutes in this one and delivered 11 points, three steals and a pair of treys, taking advantage of tonight's opportunity. Bledsoe remains a top-40 player this year so you're not panicking after a disappointing game like this.
December 17, 2018, 9:23 pmEric Bledsoe - G - Milwaukee Bucks
Eric Bledsoe scored 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting with a 3-pointer, three rebounds, nine assists and two steals on Monday.
Bledsoe's line could have been much better if he didn't miss three free throws in a row in the fourth quarter, but besides that his line was everything you'd expect from him. There were a couple layups that he should have finished, but overall the Bucks are letting him play his game which has equated to solid fantasy value.
