Kudos (you have to pronounce it all bougie-like: Kyoo-dos) if you made it this far, there’s only one more week to go. The Championship week will be extra hard so you need a Warrior song…
April 11, 2019, 1:38 amTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tyus Jones went 4-of-12 from the field for eight points and eight assists in Wednesday's season-ending loss to the Nuggets.
Jones requested a trade in the offseason because he was upset about his lack of playing time, and rightfully so. Tom Thibodeau talked him down and promised a larger role, only to sign Derrick Rose. While Jones wasted away for most of the season's first half, he did get a chance to start once Minnesota fell out of playoff contention. He was able to post top-100/120 value once he became a full-time starter, averaging 7.2 assists and 1.1 steals over that span. On the full year Jones returned top-190/165 value, and he was a top-170/150 option in total value despite missing 13 straight games with a sprained left ankle. Keep Jones in mind in case he ends up with a larger role, whether that's with the Wolves or someone else.

Tyus Jones shot 5-for-9 for 11 points with 10 assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes in a loss to the Raptors on Tuesday.
Jones has held down the backcourt for the Wolves after injuries to Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose. Roll him out there for the season finale.

Tyus Jones matched his career-high with 13 assists on Sunday, rounding out his line with 10 points and five rebounds in 35 minutes.
It's a bummer that Jones couldn't add in any more stats, but it's still a nice game to add onto his middle-round resume of late. Jerryd Bayless wasn't around to eat into his workload today so Cam Reynolds (seven minutes) and Jared Terrell (four points in 13 minutes) handled the backup work. It's Jones or bust from a fantasy perspective.

Tyus Jones played well as the Wolves edged out the Heat 111-109 on Friday, delivering 12 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 31 minutes.
Jones is a lock for solid production down the stretch with top-65 value over the last week. He's a solid source of assists and steals and will be a player to watch as he could fare prominently in the Wolves' developmental plans for the future.
April 4, 2019, 12:36 amTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tyus Jones put up 15 points with six assists on 6-of-9 shooting in a win over the Mavs on Wednesday.
With Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose out for the season, Jones has been able to show what he can do and has played well as the starting point guard. Over the past two weeks, he is averaging 12.7 points and 7.1 assists on 50-percent shooting. Those numbers are good for top-100 value and he is a must-own guy to finish the season.
April 2, 2019, 12:14 amTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tyus Jones double-doubled with 14 points (7-of-12 FGs) and 10 assists, adding three rebounds and three steals in Monday's loss to the Blazers.
Jones has been flirting with top-100 value lately, but he's mainly providing value in just two categories: assists and free throw percentage. Previously, he'd been a reliable steals source, but he's under 1.0 per game over the last month despite having the starting role for most of that time.
March 31, 2019, 1:20 amTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tyus Jones started at point guard but was on the floor for only 22 minutes, scoring nine points on 3-of-9 from the field and adding six assists with little else on Saturday night.
Tyus Jones has been underwhelming over his last 10 games with per-game averages of 28 minutes, 10.6 points and 5.8 assists considering he has soaked up the majority of the point guard minutes after Derrick Rose (right elbow) and Jeff Teague's (left foot) respective season-ending injuries. Jerryd Bayless did not fare much better, shooting 2-for-11 from the field while adding seven assists in 26 minutes.
March 27, 2019, 12:39 amTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tyus Jones had three triples and eight dimes in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers.
Jones shot well, going 5-for-9 (including 3-for-3 from deep) which was good for 13 points. He'll be starting at the point for the rest of the season, so he's worth an add if you need a low-turnover point guard.
March 23, 2019, 10:50 pmTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tyus Jones scored 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, nine dimes and a steal in 35 minutes on Saturday.
With Jeff Teague (left foot) and Derrick Rose (left elbow) out for the rest of the season, Jones will be able to put up lines like this and reward fantasy owners who snagged him early. The steals and assists will always be consistent but the field goal shooting has never been that great to begin with.
March 21, 2019, 9:43 pmTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tyus Jones continued his strong play on Thursday with 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting while handing out seven assists to go with two rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer.
Jones is a guy that should be owned in all leagues right now as Derrick Rose (left elbow) and Jeff Teague (left foot) have been shut down for the year. The shooting numbers won't be pretty and there are plenty of owners who won't put up with it, but the steals and assists are too good to leave on the wire and Jones is a guy who can tilt a matchup in your favor.
March 20, 2019, 1:11 amTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tyus Jones struggled with his shot (3-of-14 FG) on Tuesday, though he did salvage his night with ten points, four rebounds, seven assists and a steal while making all four of his free throws.
Jones is still a smart play for as long as Jeff Teague is out. Derrick Rose missing games helps him as well, but he's still a good bet to do well even with Rose back. You can plan on starting Tyus for at least a few more games.
March 17, 2019, 11:28 pmTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tyus Jones started on Sunday and had zero points on 0-of-6 shooting in 29 minutes of action in a loss to the Rockets.
The last blurb on Jones did not age well as we jinxed Jones' stellar play as a starter. He added four rebounds and five assists, but missed both of his attempts from the line as well. He is a pretty reliable option when he starts, but this was definitely not one of his better games.
March 14, 2019, 11:22 pmTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tyus Jones scored 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting with three rebounds, nine dimes and a steal on Thursday.
Jones is almost a guarantee to deliver big numbers whenever he starts. With Derrick Rose (elbow) and Jeff Teague (foot) constantly questionable, it isn't a bad idea to stream Tyus for elite steal numbers with some dimes as well.
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…
