Corey Brewer SG/SF MIN 5 Days
Corey Brewer scored 16 points in Monday's up-tempo game against the Nuggets with two boards, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer.
He's starting to turn it around after a slump back in the middle of February. Brewer's averages over his last five games include 13.2 points, 2.8 boards, 1.6 steals and 0.6 triples and he's taken 10.4 shots per game. The Wolves have made some hay on the offensive side lately, but it may have something to do with weaker defenses. Brewer isn't a slam-dunk player to own in standard leagues.

Corey Brewer bounced back from a six-point night with 18 points, two steals and a 3-pointer on 7-of-9 shooting on Tuesday.
He's scored in double figures in four of his last five games, but should take a hit once Kevin Martin is back from his thumb injury. Chase Budinger had 10 points in 30 minutes, and will move back to the bench once Martin is back in action. Brewer will be a borderline player to own once Martin's back, but owners should be prepared for a falloff once it happens.

Corey Brewer scored just six points vs. the Blazers on Sunday with five boards, one assist, two steals and no turnovers in 32 minutes.
His numbers have been all over the place this season, but he's played well in February. In that span, Brewer averaged 14.4 points, 2.0 steals and 0.5 triples on 52.2 percent shooting in 32.6 minutes. His shot total has jumped up to 11.5 in that stretch from 7.1 in January, so his owners should be expecting a hit once Kevin Martin returns, which could be this week.

Corey Brewer hit 9-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 22 points and five steals in Wednesday's win.
We've been hyping him with Kevin Martin's broken thumb and he came through tonight. That wasn't the case on Monday, when he had just five points and was in foul trouble, but for as long as Martin is out, Brewer should put up some nice numbers.
Corey Brewer SG/SF MIN 26 Days
Corey Brewer battled foul trouble against the Rockets on Monday, finishing with five points, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes.
He picked up his third and fourth fouls in the first few minutes of the second half to cost him a little bit of playing time. Brewer was terrific with a 26-point game on Saturday, so his owners should cut him a little bit of slack. Obviously he's not going to be scoring in the high teens too often and is far from a must-own player based on his body of work in the past few years.
Corey Brewer SG/SF MIN 28 Days
Corey Brewer scored a season-high 26 points against the Blazers on Saturday to go with seven boards, two assists, one block and no turnovers on 11-of-23 shooting.
He only attempted one shot from downtown and had a different look about him on offense. Entering tonight, Brewer only had four baskets in isolation on the season, which he may have passed on tonight alone. He still was very active in the transition game and it looks like he'll have a bigger role while Kevin Martin (thumb) is out. While he probably won't be this good because Kevin Love will be back soon, Brewer is worth a long look in standard leagues, especially after shooting 51.4 percent from the field in January.

Corey Brewer returned from a one-game absence on Friday with 16 points, four boards, two steals and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes against the Pelicans.
His wife had a baby boy and Papa Brewer missed Wednesday's game. He's been making his money in transition on offense this season while providing some defense on the wing for the Wolves. Chase Budinger having some problems with his knee should keep Brewer relevant in most formats and shooting 51.4 percent from the field in January really helps his case, as well. He's a decent steals specialist in deeper formats.

Corey Brewer will not play on Wednesday following the birth of his son.
It's a joyous occasion for Brewer and his family, but it leaves the Wolves absent one of their best wing defenders against Kevin Durant and the Thunder. Brewer is expected to rejoin the team in time for Friday's game. Chase Budinger and Dante Cunningham should pick up the most playing time in his absence, with Bud likely starting at SF.

Corey Brewer scored 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting with three treys, four assists and two steals in Friday's win.
Brewer logged 33 minutes to Chase Budinger's 15 minutes and he has been hot for two games now. Give him a look if you need some threes or if you're in a deeper format.
