Phew! Last night was quite the stressful one; I couldn’t get to sleep at all. I was streaming intently and in addition to my planned moves, guys like Jeff Teague, Marvin Williams, Moe Harkless, Richaun…

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.
April 7, 2019, 9:52 pmJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
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.

Jalen Brunson is not listed on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.
He got a game off on Friday for load management, despite being a rookie and the game not being on a back-to-back. Luka Doncic is out again in this one, so Brunson should be able to be productive once again.

Jalen Brunson (load management) won't play in Friday's game against the Grizzlies.
Trey Burke has averaged 17.7 points, 5.7 assists and two threes over the past week and stands to gain a lot of value while likely looking at minutes in the mid-30's.

Jalen Brunson (load management) carries the questionable tag ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Grizzlies.
Brunson has been losing some of his playing time to fellow point guard Trey Burke. With Burke's emergence, Brunson has lost fantasy value. However, if Luka Doncic misses Friday's game and Brunson plays, he should still see plenty of opportunity to produce at top-100 value

Jalen Brunson scored 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting with seven dimes and a 3-pointer on Monday.
Brunson continues his strong play, despite only logging 19 minutes tonight. He should still be owned in all leagues as the season winds down while Trey Burke (24 minutes, 16 points, six rebounds and five assists) makes for a solid streaming play for points and triples as well.

Jalen Brunson scored 18 points with four assists, two rebounds and a 3-pointer in Sunday's win against the Thunder.
Brunson logged 30 minutes in this one and made some big plays down the stretch. He certainly does not look like a second-round rookie out there. The Mavs look like they have another building block to go with Luka Doncic in the backcourt.

Jalen Brunson and Dirk Nowitzki both scored 13 points and added little else in Thursday's loss to the Heat.
Both Brunson and Nowitzki have been borderline fantasy assets over the last two weeks. Realistically, neither are reliable, as the Mavericks are kind of a fantasy wasteland, with no top-100 players at this point on a per-game basis. Justin Jackson was also generally fine with 14 points and nothing else in 33 minutes.
March 22, 2019, 12:29 amJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Brunson cooled off a bit on Thursday, scoring 10 points on 5-of-12 shooting with three rebounds and two assists.
Brunson finally showed some signs of slowing down, but the minutes are still going to be there which means you should hang onto him. Tim Hardaway Jr. (stress reaction) is out for the year which leaves even more room for Brunson to pile up counting stats.
March 21, 2019, 1:18 amJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Brunson scored 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting (4-of-4 FTs) with two rebounds, three assists and two steals over 26 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Blazers.
Brunson has been cruising along as an early round level lately, which is unsustainable production over a long period of time but in the fantasy playoffs this development might not have time to correct itself.
March 18, 2019, 11:36 pmJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Bruson had another solid game with 14 points, three rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one three in 39 minutes in Monday's loss to the Pelicans.
It's not as exciting as Brunson's last few games. However, this should be his around his floor for the rest of the season. That's a must-start floor for anyone in need of a safe point guard with a nice ceiling too. Dwight Powell also continued his great play tonight with 16 points and eight boards on 6-of-8 from the field.

Jalen Brunson posted 16 points, seven assists and two 3-pointers in only 26 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.
Brunson's really been playing well of late and should be rostered in all formats for his output in scoring and assists. He played the least of any starter tonight, which is a bit surprising since Dallas was missing Luka Doncic, but Trey Burke and Devin Harris stepped up off the bench. Burke had 11 points in 22 minutes while Harris had six points and nine assists in 22 minutes of his own. Outside of Brunson there's nothing to look at.

Jalen Brunson scored 20 points on 8-of-15 shooting to go with five rebounds, four assists, a steal and three 3-pointers against the Nuggets on Thursday.
Brunson is on fire and he should be owned everywhere after how well he's been playing. Coach Carlisle likes him and he's been aggressive and confident with the ball as the second playmaker next to Luka Doncic and is going to give a lot of owners a huge boost in playoff formats.
