Jrue Holiday dropped 28 points, six assists, three rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes in the Pelicans' 118-107 win over the Wizards on Friday.
Holiday had his best game of the restart so far (by far), as his previous high in points was 20 in Orlando. The Pelicans were without Zion Williamson (rest) on Friday, so that played a part in the increased volume for Holiday. When Williamson returns, Holiday's load should decrease a bit.

In Thursday's loss to the Kings, Jrue Holiday shot 7-of-10 from the field on his way to 17 points to go with five rebounds, five assists, two 3-pointers, one steal, one block and four turnovers.
Holiday did all of his work in 29 minutes but unfortunately couldn't lead his team to victory. Every game that the Pelicans drop makes it more and more likely that they will focus more on developing their young talent instead of attempting to make the playoffs. Holiday may be a victim if this happens as he is the top veteran on the roster. However, we can continue to roll with Holiday until/when that day comes.

Jrue Holiday played a supporting role during 33 minutes on Monday, ending with 15 points.
While Holiday didn't play poorly, he also didn't flirt with 30 points like he can on his best nights. Holiday added four rebounds, three assists and a steal while going 1-for-3 from downtown. On the bright side, Holiday committed only one turnover after registering nine over his prior two games.

Jrue Holiday posted the full line we've come to expect from him in Thursday's slim loss to the Jazz, finishing with 20 points (9-of-18 shooting), five boards, four assists, three steals, two triples and a blocked shot in a team-high 37 minutes.
The six turnovers were unsightly for Holiday, but he was a pest on the defensive end trying to get the ball back to combat that. From a fantasy angle, getting to play off the ball has been pivotal to making Jrue a fantasy stud. That should continue in the bubble as the Pelicans try to make their way into a play-in tournament.

Jrue Holiday scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with two triples, four rebounds, three assists and a steal in Wednesday's scrimmage against the Bucks.
Holiday looked great out there and continues to play shooting guard to allow Lonzo Ball handle the playmaking duties. He's as reliable as they come at the guard slot.

Jrue Holiday scored five points with five assists, two steals and one block in 13 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Saturday.
Holiday's defensive stats are a big reason he is posting top-30/40 value in 8/9-cat leagues this season. His 0.8 blocks per game were the fifth-highest for guard-eligible players and his 1.7 steals per game put him in the top-10 for that category this season. Holiday's fantasy value took a hit with the emergence of the young players in New Orleans, but he looks to be a solid bet for the top-50 for the next two seasons.

Jrue Holiday contributed in all categories during 2019-20 while claiming top-30 fantasy value in 8-category leagues.
Holiday's production slowed a bit when Zion Williamson joined the Pelicans. Nevertheless, he averaged 19.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.8 blocks. The 1.3 offensive rebounds per contest were a career best. While Holiday shot a career-low 70 percent from the charity stripe, he sank 35.7 percent of his 3-point attempts compared to 32.5 percent the year before. Holiday finished with top-40 value in 9-category formats.

Jrue Holiday said that he plans on joining his teammates in Orlando for the restart.
Holiday was a nightly triple-double threat back in March, so he's obviously a key player for the Pelicans if they hope to advance in the playoffs. He won't be cheap in daily leagues, though.

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.
