Jrue Holiday carried the load on Sunday in Minnesota, leading the Pelicans to a win with 37 points (13-for-20 FG, 8-of-9 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers.
Holiday set a new season-high in scoring today and it was good to see a line like this after he's been playing like more of a support player while New Orleans' younger charges have been outstanding. Holiday is as safe as it gets in the early-middle rounds and has top-20 upside. Hopefully this is the start of a production binge.

Jrue Holiday finished Friday's 110-104 win over the Heat on Friday with 20 points (7-for-13 shooting), six assists, six rebounds, three steals, three triples and a block.
Holiday and Lonzo Ball (16 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block) were key to the Pelicans getting a crucial win to stay alive in the Western Conference playoff race. Look for the Pelicans to continue to rely on both of the talented guards as they make their push which should mean good things for fantasy.

Jrue Holiday put up the fourth triple-double of his career on Tuesday vs. the Wolves, going for 27 points (10-of-16 FG), 12 assists and 10 rebounds in a loss.
Holiday has been the definition of consistency this season and ranks right inside the top-50. He and Josh Redick are the senior members and leaders of this Pelicans squad, and with Redick (hamstring) on the sidelines, the floor is all Holiday's. Despite the big night from Holiday, the Pelicans were not able to pull out the victory tonight. Look for Holiday to continue balling out.

Brandon Ingram scored a team-high 29 points in Friday's 116-104 win over the Cavs, going 11-of-19 from the field while adding six rebounds, seven assists, a steal and two 3-pointers.
Impressively, Ingram also went 5-of-6 from the charity stripe as his remarkable turnaround there continues. After shooting .621, .681 and .675 in his first three seasons, Ingram is at a sterling .860 on a career-high 6.1 attempts per game this season. It's led to a massive season with second-round fantasy value. Ingram's efficiency was replicated in this one by Zion Williamson (24 points on 11-of-16 FG) and Jrue Holiday (22 points on 10-of-16 FG with six assists, two steals, a block and two triples) as the Pelicans rolled right over the hapless Cavs.

Jrue Holiday struggled to get his shots to fall in a road loss to the Lakers on Tuesday, going for just 11 points on 5-of-19 shooting with five rebounds, nine assists, two steals and a three in 38 minutes.
Holiday was tasked with guarding LeBron James for much of this game, so he could be forgiven for not being at his best on the other side of the floor. He should bounce back on Friday against the Cavs with no problem.

Jrue Holiday put up 23 points with 15 dimes in a team-high 38 minutes of action in a 115-101 win over the Warriors on Sunday.
Holiday shot 10-of-17 from the field and added seven rebounds and three triples to the box score. He is locked in as a top-30 option for the rest of the season.

Jrue Holiday finished Friday's 128-115 win over the Blazers with 20 points (5-for-10 shooting), nine assists, four triples, four steals and two rebounds.
This was an elite line from Holiday, who was very aggressive in attacking the basket as evidenced by his eight free throw attempts. As Holiday figures out his spots in this new-look offense watch for his scoring to tick up.

Jrue Holiday scored 14 points with six rebounds, 11 assists and a 3-pointer on Thursday.
Holiday had another solid night, but overall could have been a lot more impactful on offense late in the game. Believe it or not, he's still learning how to play alongside Lonzo Ball and Zion Williamson and once things start to click, you should see much bigger scoring lines.

Jrue Holiday put up a well-rounded stat line on Tuesday vs. the Blazers with 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting, four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.
Holiday has produced second-round value over the last month, partly due to his defensive prowess. He's averaged 1.7 steals and 1.4 blocks per game over that stretch of 11 games. It's worth finding out if the person that rosters him in your league values him this highly since he could easily keep this up. Lonzo Ball resumed his strong production on Tuesday with nine points, six boards, 10 dimes and a triple-one.

Jrue Holiday, despite getting five stitches for a head laceration, returned to action and powered the Pelicans to a 124-117 win over the Pacers on Saturday with 31 points on 10-of-22 shooting.
Holiday went all beast mode on the Pacers, recording six rebounds, 10 assists, four 3s and three steals for his sixth double-double of the season. The Pelicans were without Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson with sprained ankles, so Holiday stepped up to help take the road win. He's a shoo-in for top-25 value if he keeps this up.

Jrue Holiday got five stitches above his eye, which got cut in Saturday's game and is available to return.
The stitches have closed the wound, so bleeding is no longer a concern. Holiday should be able to help put away the pesky Pacers in this one.

After knocking heads with Domantas Sabonis, Jrue Holiday suffered a head laceration and started bleeding, prompting him to go to the locker room to get it looked at.
The injury might need stitches, but it did not look too serious. The referees stopped the game due to the blood coming out, so once that's addressed, we could see him back in the game.

Jrue Holiday kept the buy-low window open on Thursday with nine points on 4-of-11 shooting to go with three rebounds, five assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer.
Keep firing the buy-low offers on Holiday. He barely played tonight because guys like J.J. Redick (23 minutes, 18 points, one rebound five assists and three triples) got hot and he's going to easily clear first-round value in the back half of the season.

Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday left the game and headed to the locker room early in the first quarter of Tuesday's game against the Rockets.
Shortly thereafter, he returned to the court ominously, uninjured. Holiday seemed fine when he returned to the bench. With trade rumors swirling ahead of Thursday's NBA Trade Deadline, there has been plenty of speculation regarding the Pelicans plan with Holiday. Stay tuned.

The Heat and Nuggets are among the "many teams" that have expressed interest in Jrue Holiday, according to Zach Lowe.
Holiday has been clear that he likes the current group in New Orleans and would like to stay pat at the deadline, but Holiday could be the best player available and would certainly fetch the Pelicans a haul. The Nuggets have been in this conversation for some time now, and the Heat obviously have been in the market for a guard upgrade since adding Jimmy Butler. Still, that Holiday wants to stay is a big part of this, and the Pelicans may want to test their luck on a playoff run now that Zion Williamson is healthy. Holiday's fantasy value shouldn't change if he's traded but New Orleans is already a great spot, and fantasy GMs shouldn't want to mess with a good thing.
