Richard Jefferson SF UTA 1 Day
Richard Jefferson got hot and hit 7-of-9 shots for 20 points, three assists, a steal and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes of Wednesday's blowout win over the Kings.
If you catch RJ on the right night, like tonight, he can help you win a daily league, but is far too inconsistent to be relied upon in most leagues. He has scored 13, 13 and 20 points in his last three games, but is due to fall off a cliff now that Derrick Favors and Marvin Williams are back for the Jazz. Prior to his three-game mini explosion he scored a total of 10 points in his previous three games.

Richard Jefferson had 15 points, five rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer on 6-of-11 shooting in Saturday's win.
RJ has been hit or miss, but is still starting for Utah and averaging 10 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.2 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting over his last five games. And if you catch him on the right night, he can be a difference maker in fantasy. Just expect plenty of inconsistency if you choose to roll the dice on him.

Richard Jefferson scored six points on 2-of-5 shooting (no threes) with two rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes on Friday against the Suns.
Jefferson had been a nice stopgap solution for owners but now that the Jazz are getting healthy he might be too inconsistent for 12-14 team leagues. If you're eyeballing a hot pickup go ahead and make the move.

Richard Jefferson scored 15 points on 5-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds and one block on Monday.
Jefferson logged 38 minutes and with Enes Kanter out tonight it guaranteed that both he and Marvin Williams would log heavy minutes. Jefferson has been a solid late-round value over the past two weeks but that could change when Kanter gets back.

Richard Jefferson scored just seven points on 3-of-8 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes on Friday against the Mavs.
Jefferson had worked his way into the standard league discussion but it's possible the return of Marvin Williams will eventually make him too inconsistent for fantasy use. He's much better suited for deeper formats.

Richard Jefferson played 41 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday during a 105-98 loss, scoring 13 points with five boards, three assists and three 3-pointers.
He's playing 36.4 minutes per game over his last five outings, averaging 13.2 points, 2.8 boards, 3.0 assists and 2.4 triples. That's enough to put him in the conversation as a pickup in standard leagues. Although, Jefferson's upside won't be too high and Marvin Williams (nose) won't be out long.

Richard Jefferson backed up a 22-point outing with 14 points and three treys on Friday, adding three boards and two steals in a whopping 43 minutes.
Jefferson is the type of player to get hot for stretches and then cool off, so owners should still approach him with caution, but outside of Marvin Williams (two points, 22 minutes) there is nobody challenging him at small forward right now and he could be a sneaky pickup.

Richard Jefferson shot 7-of-11 from the field for 22 points in Utah's first win of the season to go with three boards, four assists and three 3-pointers.
He scored just 20 points combined in his previous three games and this explosion came out of nowhere. Jefferson hit some clutch shots tonight and was a big part of the win, so he might be getting more than his 25.3 minutes per game. It's tough to pick him up in most leagues until he can start stringing games together.

Richard Jefferson had a season-high 32 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday, scoring 13 points with two rebounds, three assists and five steals.
He came into the game shooting just 33.3 percent from the field, but wasn't much better at 5-of-12 tonight. Jefferson seems safe as the starter, but he'll have a lower upside with the team not really drawing anything up for him.

Richard Jefferson hit just 1-of-7 shots for two points, three rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Nets.
He surely wanted to have a better showing against his former team, but couldn't get it going tonight. Hopefully you didn't have him in any lineups tonight, although we were expecting him to play better than this against the Nets.
