Stuckey has not only been pacing the Pistons in scoring despite coming off the bench, but came in leading the entire Eastern Conference in bench scoring at 15.9 per game. And over his last five he's at 21 points per game on 56 percent shooting, meaning he should be owned in all leagues at this point.

Don't look now, but Stuckey has been very consistent with at least 16 points in each of his last seven games. He's shot at least 46 percent in six of those games and he's found his groove as the sixth man for the Pistons. Now that he's getting some looks from beyond the arc, he's worth owning in all standard leagues.

Rodney Stuckey scored 16 points off the bench on Friday against the Kings, hitting 6-of-13 shots (including a three) with four rebounds, four assists and a block in 30 minutes.
The Kings have troubles on defense and that's probably enough to explain the slight bump in production tonight. With Chauncey Billups fading away and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (seven points, 21 minutes) not really a threat yet, owners should give Stuckey a look as a low-end play best suited for deeper formats.

With Chauncey Billups' knee injury and old age slowing him down, it sounds like the Pistons will have a new starting shooting guard on Friday against the Kings.
Rodney Stuckey is the favorite to get the call and could keep the job going forward, while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is also in the mix for the job. Stuckey looks like the safest bet and warrants a close look if he's sitting on your waiver wire.

Rodney Stuckey came off the bench to hit 2-of-9 shots for seven points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 28 minutes of Tuesday's ugly loss to the Warriors.
Stuckey played 34 minutes in his previous games and will start hitting shots, making him worth a look off fantasy waiver wires. But he'll need Chauncey Billups to see limited minutes in order to be effective. The minutes have been there though, since he returned from a thumb injury, and he could be getting ready to make a run.

Rodney Stuckey hit just 4-of-15 shots in Monday's loss, scoring 13 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one 3-point shot in 34 minutes off the bench.
While Stuckey might not be this productive or utilized this much, he is looking at some derivative of this role at least until Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is brought up to speed, as Chauncey Billups (14 minutes) appears to be running out of gas. Give him a look if he's floating around your waiver wire.

Rodney Stuckey was efficient in Friday's 119-110 loss to the Thunder, shooting 5-of-7 from the field for 17 points with two boards, three assists and two 3-pointers in just 23 minutes.
Chauncey Billups has been starting at shooting guard, but is not really doing anything on the stat sheet. Meanwhile, Stuckey has shot 52.9 percent this season and has provided a huge jolt to the Pistons' second unit. Stuckey should take over as the starter sooner rather than later and is worth a look in all leagues.
