    Jalen Brunson put up 14 points and six assists on 6-of-11 shooting in a 131-111 win over the Cavs on Sunday.

    Brunson started over Dorian Finney-Smith, who had 10 points and five rebounds in this one. The fluctuation of Brunson's role and performances make it hard for him to be worth owning in standard leagues. Wait for him to string together a few performances like this one before picking him up.

    Jalen Brunson came off the bench for just 16 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets, but he dished out eight assists, grabbed four rebounds and scored 11 points (4-for-8 FGs, 3-for-7 FTs).

    Brunson had some great stretches in this game, but the low minutes are a reminder that this team has quite a few guards that are going to be sharing minutes and usage. It's going to be tough for Brunson to carve out a consistent-enough role to be trusted in standard leagues this season. Delon Wright played 24 minutes and had 12 points, three rebounds, six assists and a steal tonight.

    Jalen Brunson did not play well on Sunday in a loss to the Blazers as he put up four points on 1-of–6 shooting in 26 minutes.

    Brunson and Delon Wright have played well to start the season, but neither of them played particularly well in this one. Wright put up eight points and five assists on 3-of-4 shooting. Wright is the preferred option of the two as he holds more late-round potential in standard formats than Brunson does.

    Jalen Brunson put up 14 points, eight rebounds, two 3-pointers and two assists in Friday's win over the Pelicans.

    Brunson found success as a support scorer alongside Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis on Friday. The move also seemed positive for the fantasy value of Delon Wright. Keep an eye on this situation moving forward as it will be interesting to see how Rick Carlisle plays this.

    Jalen Brunson is getting the starting nod for the Mavs on Friday, replacing Delon Wright in the starting five.

    This is an interesting twist in the Brunson-Wright position battle. While we know Wright is the more well-rounded player, he hasn't exactly inspired much confidence out of the gate. Keep a close watch on their minutes tonight.

    Jalen Brunson (sore left hamstring) posted six points, five rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 15 minutes on Thursday night.

    Brunson started next to Delon Wright, which is something to remember in case the Mavs deal with injuries that force them to reshuffle the starting five during the year. He's only a deep-league option but did have some stints of relevance last season, so he's not someone to completely write off if injuries strike.

    Jalen Brunson (sore left hamstring) and Dorian Finney-Smith (hip flexor) are both questionable for Thursday's game against the Clippers.

    Both Brunson and Finney-Smith are likely being held out as a precaution in advance of the regular season. Continue to monitor their status up until tip-off if you are looking at playing some Mavs in your Thursday DFS lineups.

    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Niether Dorian Finney-Smith (hip flexor) nor Jalen Brunson (left hamstring soreness) will play on Monday.

    Both players sat out practice on Saturday and Sunday, and there's no need to push them through meaningless games. Finney-Smith is closer to the fantasy radar given his ability to play PF and Dwight Powell's injury, but we're looking at deep-league value here. DFS and Brunson are both progressing so we may see them before the exhibition slate wraps up.

    Jalen Brunson (left hamstring) did not practice on Saturday.

    This is the first we are hearing about Brunson's injury but Mavs reporter Eddie Sefko did add that he was only day-to-day. Brunson can be avoided in standard formats as Delon Wright is expected to take his spot in the starting lineup to start the season.

    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Justin Jackson scored 13 points with three treys, two rebounds and two assists on Friday.

    Jackson had more minutes than any other Mavs player off the bench, but wasn't the only productive one. Jalen Brunson also had 12 points with four assists, two rebounds and two threes. Jackson is at a critical point in his career with the Mavs and if he doesn't earn a role this year don't be surprised to see them move on.

    Jalen Brunson has been added to the USA Select Team that will train against the USA Men's Team in August.

    What an honor for Brunson, who will gain valuable experience this summer. Brunson's fantasy value took a sizable hit for next season after the Mavs signed Delon Wright and Seth Curry this offseason.

    Jalen Brunson scored 11 points on 5-of-13 shooting with three rebounds, 10 assists and one trey in Wednesday's final regular season game against the Spurs.

    Brunson continued to increase his role as the season went on, partly as he convinced Rick Carlisle he could handle stuff, but also as attrition set in for the Mavs. His stat set wasn't great for standard leagues, as he hung around the bottom of the top-300 in a healthy 21.8 mpg.

    Jalen Brunson, who is coming off a missed game (load management), recorded a new career-high with 10 assists on Sunday, adding 12 points two rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes.

    With Luka Doncic sitting this one out with a thigh contusion, Brunson handled the playmaking duties. He's been one of more pleasantly surprising rookie revelations this season but only emerged as a fantasy factor after the Mavs offloaded Dennis Smith Jr. to the Knicks. He's a player to watch come 2019-20.
