The Scoop:He scored 18 of his 20 points in garbage time Monday, but coach Stan Van Gundy left him in the game to shake the rust off. "I felt like I got into a bit of a rhythm," Meeks said. "It is only my third game back, so I have to take it day by day and, when I'm open, shoot it with confidence." Meeks has the ability to consistently knock down 3-pointers while also contributing assists and steals, so he should be owned in all standard leagues. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's spot in the starting lineup could soon be in jeopardy.
Jodie Meeks came off the bench for nine points and a 3-pointer on 2-of-8 shooting in 20 minutes on Wednesday.
The Scoop:Starter Kentavious Caldwell-Pope played a little better than normal tonight with 14 points and three 3-pointers on 5-of-15 shooting in 28 minutes. But once Meeks is healthy and rolling, these two are probably going to split minutes, making both of them tough to use on a regular basis in fantasy. Meeks scored 20 on Monday, but a lot of that came in garbage time.
Jodie Meeks scored 20 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 5-of-10 shots (3-of-5 3PTs, 7-of-7 FTs) with one rebound, four assists and two steals in 30 minutes.
The Scoop:The Pistons love Meeks and they don't like a lot of the other guys on the roster so you can do the math. Look for him to handle the ball, hit threes, steal the ball and he should be owned in all standard formats.
Jodie Meeks played 20 minutes against the Kings on Saturday with six points, two rebounds, two assists and four steals.
The Scoop:The Pistons are 2-0 with Meeks, but he hasn't played well. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is not untouchable and the two are sharing minutes, so it's fair to expect their minutes to flip-flop soon. Meeks is worth a look in standard leagues.
