Jrue Holiday PG NO 7 Days
Holiday matched a career-high, picking up 15 assists in a win over the Thunder.
Holiday needed the assists to help his fantasy day, since he scored just 11 points in 36 minutes on 4-for-12 shooting (3-7 3Pt). He's certainly worth using in all fantasy leagues, given how much he plays. It also helps that he has fantasy MVP Anthony Davis to dish the ball to on a nightly basis.

Holiday scored 30 points (12-23 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine assists, five steals, three rebounds, and a block in 45 minutes Sunday against the Warriors.
After spending the beginning of the fantasy season getting back into form, Holiday has been one of the better fantasy point guards in the past 15 days. Before going down with a leg fracture, Holiday was one of the better fantasy players in the game. It was only natural that he would need some time to adjust himself to playing after the injury and now seems like the time where he's really putting it all together.
Jrue Holiday PG NO 18 Days
Holiday scored 30 points (12-22 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), with 10 assists, three steals and one rebound in 35 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks.
Holiday and Anthony Davis led the charge, as two of three players to score in double figures during this game. Holiday had a monster game, and fantasy owners have to be happy after some mediocre ones recently. Keep an eye on Holiday moving forward, but he should remain in most lineups regardless of the situation.
Jrue Holiday PG NO 20 Days
Holiday scored 22 points (9-17 FG, 4-5 3Pt) and added four rebounds, eight assists and a block against the Lakers in 35 minutes.
Holiday bounced back after a poor performance against the Clippers on Saturday. He just missed a double-double and shot great from downtown (4-5 3Pt). He will not continue to shoot 80 percent from three-land, but it is nice to see him come out and be aggressive after dropping a dud against the Clippers. Of course, playing the Lakers makes it a lot easier to be effective as they have been one of the worst defensive teams in the league as they allow nearly 112 points per 100 possessions.
Jrue Holiday PG NO 21 Days
Holiday scored seven points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with three rebounds and six assists in 28 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.
Holiday simply had an off night. There is no reason to read into this. The good news is that he was still able to chip in six assists on a night when he clearly was not playing well.
Jrue Holiday PG NO 26 Days
Holiday scored 16 points (6-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), with 10 assists, five rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 38 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Thunder.
Another strong game from Holiday, and he's definitely benefitting from the likes of Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans. Expect Holiday to be a threat to come close to double-digit assists on a nightly basis, while remaining as a major scoring threat.

Holiday led the Pelicans with 24 points (9-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with nine assists in 28 minutes in the easy win over Minnesota on Friday.
The Pelicans hit 66.7 percent of their shots from the field and 75 percent on 3-pointers, and Holiday was the best of the best. He has scored at least 15 points in his last five games and tallied at least nine assists three times in that span.
Jrue Holiday PG NO 2 Months
Holiday is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets.
Holiday is not injured, but Tuesday marks the Pelicans' first back-to-back of the season, and Holiday is still less than a year removed from surgery to repair a tibial stress fracture. He's played big minutes of late (36.5 over the past two games), so he doesn't appear to be limited, but the Pelicans could exercise caution as he continues to build up to full strength.

Holiday put in 24 points (10-19 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with four rebounds, six assists, and three steals in 37 minutes in the loss to the Mavs on Saturday.
Holiday had a quiet opener in the win over the Magic with eight points and four assists. He was more aggressive with jumpers, but his one free throw through two games indicates that he has not been taking the ball to the basket.
Jrue Holiday PG NO 3 Months
Holiday (leg) will start in Saturday's preseason game against Miami, the New Orleans Times-Picayune's John Reid reports.
Holiday is still recovering from the tibial stress fracture he suffered last season, but the fact that both he and the team are feeling confident enough to run him out there for the first preseason game is a very positive sign. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he should be fine for the Pelicans' Oct. 28 season opener.
