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 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.
March 16, 2019, 11:06 pmJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
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.
March 15, 2019, 1:01 amJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
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.
March 13, 2019, 12:28 amJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Brunson had a career-high 34 points on 12-of-16 from the field in Tuesday's 112-105 loss to the Spurs in Dallas.
Brunson hit all seven free throws, as well. He also added five rebounds, four assists, a steal and three 3-pointers to round out his big night. He's a top-100 player over the past month, so look him up if you need point guard stats.
March 10, 2019, 9:48 pmJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Brunson finished Sunday's last-second loss with 18 points (6-of-13 shooting), seven rebounds, four assists and a 3-pointer.
Brunson had his shot blocked by Chris Paul at the buzzer, ending an improbable comeback in the closing minutes. He's looking like the starting point guard for the rest of the season and will be a fine low-end option for fantasy owners that need the typical guard stats.
March 8, 2019, 9:28 pmJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Brunson hit 8-of-11 shots to finish Friday's loss to the Magic with 18 points, one 3, nine assists, two rebounds and two turnovers in 30 minutes.
The minutes are there for Brunson when he's playing well, but coach Rick Carlisle will give him the hook when he's not. Brunson has been averaging low-end numbers over his last seven games with 12.3 points, 1.3 threes and 4.3 assists with pretty good efficiency. That's good enough for 9-cat value around the top-150.
March 3, 2019, 1:58 amJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Brunson went 1-for-10 in 28 minutes on Saturday night, finishing an ugly loss to the Grizzlies with two points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Brunson had a career-best performance on Wednesday night but didn't do much of anything in this one. He remains a deep-league asset given his starting gig, and if it's any consolation he certainly won't be this bad moving forward. The Mavs shot 30.6 percent as a team and only three guys scored more than 10 points tonight.
February 27, 2019, 11:32 pmJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Brunson had the best game of his career on Wednesday, dropping a career-high 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting with three rebounds, five dimes three triples and three steals.
Brunson is someone to watch as he's a rookie who is line for a lot of burn down the stretch. He's got the chops to break out late, making him a solid hold in 14-team leagues or deeper.
February 24, 2019, 1:58 amJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Brunson started for injured Luka Doncic (sore right ankle) in Saturday's loss to the Jazz, scoring 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds and two assists over 25 minutes.
Brunson's lack of defensive stats really hurts and he's barely worth owning when he gets bigger minutes. You have to be in 14-18 team leagues to make this work.
February 22, 2019, 11:23 pmJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Brunson started for an injured Luka Doncic (sore right ankle) and did not disappoint as he tallied 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting with two rebounds, five assists, three triples, one steal and one block in 31 minutes.
He was DFS gold tonight and should be worth owning for another game or two while Doncic is on the mend. He will drop like a bad guy in a John Wick 3 trailer once Luka returns though, so don't get too attached.
