Justin Holiday totaled 21 points (8-13 FG, 5-8 3PT), four rebounds, and three assists in 29 minutes in the Pacers' 141-137 win over the Timberwolves.
Holiday scored 21.0 points in the Pacers’ win over the Timberwolves, making it his best scoring performance since February 2nd when he faced off against the Pelicans. His immense opportunity in the rotation and his ability to create some, albeit small, production across performance categories make him worth considering for your DFS lineup as an "elite" last-piece flier play. It would not be wise to chase this performance as his play is highly volatile, but it would be no surprise if he put up similar numbers in the team’s next game in true Holiday “fashion.”
Justin Holiday totaled 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-8 3PT), one rebound, two assists, and two steals in 27 minutes in the Pacers' 113-103 loss to the Nuggets on Thursday.
Holiday scored 16.0 points in the Pacers’ loss to the Nuggets while shooting 60.0 percent and 50.0 percent from beyond the arc. His scoring performance was his best of the month, and marked his tenth consecutive game in which he contributed to three or more stat-sheet categories. Holiday's value is quite "elastic" when it comes to the varying degrees of competition, making him a risky play night-in and night-out; however, his role in the rotation does a good job of keeping him fantasy relevant. Holiday is worth considering for your DFS lineups as a viable flier option.
Justin Holiday totaled eight points (3-13 FG, 2-10 3PT), three rebounds, two assists, one block, and two steals in 37 minutes in the Pacers' 114-111 win over the Cavaliers on Wednesday.
Holiday scored 8.0 points in the Pacers’ win over the Cavaliers, ending his streak of double-digit scoring outings at three games. This game also marked his worse shooting performance of the year as he shot a dismal 23.1 percent from the floor and 20.0 percent from beyond the arc. Holiday was able to stuff every category of the stat-sheet, which has been his value's saving grace this season; however, he remains ineffective and inefficient in his play given the magnitude of his role in the starting rotation. Holiday's role in the rotation, mixed with his ability to put together a full line once in a while, keep him fantasy relevant as a last-piece play for your DFS lineups. In some ways, Holiday is more of a "glorified" flier than a regular value contributor at this point in the season.
Justin Holiday totaled 13 points (3-7 FG, 2-6 3PT, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, one assist, and one block in 31 minutes in the Pacers' 110-107 loss to the Knicks on Saturday.
Holiday scored 13.0 points in the Pacers’ loss against the Knicks, making it his tenth game out of the twelve played this month where he had a double-digit performance. Holiday's role in the starting rotation creates most of his appeal when considering him for DFS lineups; however, his low-floor and limited ceiling strongly combat his upside, making him a frustrating play in most if not all fantasy formats.
Justin Holiday totaled 19 points (6-10 FG, 5-9 3PT, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, and two assists, two blocks, one steals in 33 minutes in the Pacers' 118-112 loss to the Celtics on Friday.
Holiday scored 19.0 points in the Pacers’ loss to the Celtics, making it his ninth game out of the last eleven that he has had a double-digit performance. He is playing some of his best basketball this month as he has seen increased production in all major performance categories. Holiday's improved consistency makes him an intriguing last-piece value asset for your DFS lineups.
