Jodie Meeks SG DET 13 Days

Meeks scored 11 points (2-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-8 FT) with two rebounds, five assists and four steals in 33 minutes in the Pistons loss to the Jazz on Saturday.

Meeks has been playing alongside Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in the Pistons' lineup recently, and is averaging 1.3 three-pointers and 1.7 steals in his last seven games. He's averaging less than two rebounds and assists on the season, so won't help in those categories, but can be a boost in his areas of strength for some owners.

Meeks had a poor shooting night Sunday in a loss to the Hornets, going 3-for-12 from the field but finishing with 12 points (6-6 FT) and three steals in 24 minutes.

Meeks has been wildly inconsistent as of late. He did have a 20-point performance March 4, but has also gone for eight or fewer points in three of his past six games. He also hardly does anything else on the stat sheet, averaging 1.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game this season.

Meeks had 20 points (8-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt), one assist, and two steals in 28 minutes Wednesday against New Orleans.

Meeks hadn't scored 20 points in a game since Detroit's final game of 2014, where he scored 34. He also hadn't attempted more than 10 field goals since Feb. 6 against Denver. Although Meeks gets a decent amount of run, he's too inconsistent on a night-to-night basis to be counted on in most formats.

Meeks scored 13 points (5-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with five assists and a steal in 30 minutes off the bench Wednesday.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope went down early in the first quarter with a sore Achilles tendon, opening up plenty of minutes for Meeks at small forward. Should KCP end up missing significant time due to the injury, Meeks would become a must-add in most formats.

Meeks had 19 points (4-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 10-11 FT), three assists and two steals in 34 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

The Pistons were blown out by the Sixers and that's likely why he played a bit more than usual. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is going to get a lot of run at the shooting guard position and averages 32 minutes per game, while Meeks sees 25 minutes per game, but if something were to happen to Caldwell-Pope, Meeks would see an uptick in minutes and probably be inserted into the starting lineup.

Meeks scored 13 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), to go along with four rebounds, one assist, and a steal in 26 minutes on Sunday.

Meeks has been carving out steady mid-20 minutes for himself lately and is good for a couple three-pointers, a steal, and handful of points. He's a good guy to have on the back of your bench, but as long as Detroit is planning on playing KCP heavy minutes then Meeks' upside is capped.

Meeks scored 34 points (11-16 FG; 9-11 3Pt) with two steals in 27 minutes in Tuesday's blowout win against the Magic.

Meeks was simply on fire in this one, hitting a preposterous nine three-pointers against the hapless Orlando reserves, including all six of his three-point attempts in a 20-point second quarter. Tuesday was only Meeks' ninth game of the season, after he missed eight weeks with a stress reaction in his back. As a result, Meeks has only played 30 minutes once this season, despite being new coach Stan Van Gundy's major signing this offseason. As he continues to get his legs back under him, Meeks should start to see bigger minutes and could be a valuable contributor for fantasy owners looking for three-pointers and steals.

Meeks scored 20 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3P, 7-7 FT) with four assists and two steals in 30 minutes off the bench Monday.

In just his third game of the season, Meeks finally looked like the player the Pistons thought they signed this offseason. He badly outplayed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in this one, and it may not be long before Meeks bumps KCP out of the starting lineup.

Meeks (back) played in his first game of the season Friday, scoring 12 points (4-10 FG, 4-4 FT) in 22 minutes off the bench.

Meeks had been out for eight weeks with a stress reaction in his back, but was second on the Pistons in bench minutes in a win over the Suns. The shooting guard didn't do much else to fill up the box score outside of his scoring, but will likely play a decent role off the bench for the struggling Pistons, who just broke a 13-game losing streak.

Meeks (back) will play Friday against the Suns.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said he has "no expectations" for Meeks, but he'll "run him out there" as the Pistons take on the Suns. The Kentucky product, one of the better catch-and-shoot guards in the league, is yet to play this season due to a stress reaction in his lower back. He signed on with Detroit as a free agent this summer. While Meeks is worth a look in most leagues, it may be worth waiting to see how he's used once healthy, as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope may hold onto the starting designation.
