News: Bulls guard Marquis Teague continues to play just a limited role for the team, as the third point guard in the lineup. Teague is averaging 15.8 minutes per game since the All-Star break, but was back in a reserve role Thursday against the Trail Blazers, with Kirk Hinrich healthy. Teague is averaging just 3.3 points and 1.9 assists per game over the last 10, while shooting 34.6 percent from the field.
Analysis: Teague was drafted as a freshman out of the University of Kentucky, and was considered a very raw prospect. He was expected to be worked in slowly this season despite Derrick Rose's knee injury, and that has proven true. Teague is averaging just 2.3 points and 1.4 assists per game on the season, and with just a few weeks remaining, can be safely ignored in the majority of Fantasy formats.
News: Bulls guard Marquis Teague scored in doubles figures for the second time this season on Wednesday night against the Spurs. He finished with a career-high 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting in the 101-83 loss. He was an efficient 3 of 4 from beyond the arc while playing 24 minutes off the bench. Teague also posted three assists, three rebounds and a steal in the defeat.
Analysis: Teague has been seeing more playing time recently with Kirk Hinrich and Richard Hamilton banged up but has not shown much consistency thus far in his rookie campaign. He was a solid player at Kentucky, however, so keep an eye on his progress going forward. The 20-year-old could develop into a reliable backup to Derrick Rose down the line but should be ignored in the majority of Fantasy formats at this point.
News: Bulls guard Marquis Teague played a decent role Thursday against the Heat, as he logged 19 minutes in a blowout loss. Teague did not do much with his playing time, scoring six points on 3 of 5 shooting, while snagging five rebounds. The backup point guard finished with no assists, while turning the ball over four times, in an 86-67 loss.
Analysis: More often than not, Teague has been the Bulls third point guard this season, and as a result has seen little of the floor. He is averaging just 1.9 points and 1.2 assists per game in 7.2 minutes as a rookie, so Fantasy owners should continue to ignore him in all yearly formats.
News: Bulls rookie guard Marquis Teague saw his most extensive playing time of the season Thursday against the Nuggets, as the Bulls were blown out early. Teague played 22 minutes off the bench, scoring 10 points on 5 of 8 shooting from the field. He added four rebounds and three assists, while turning the ball over four times, in a 128-96 loss. The 10 points were also a season-high.
Analysis: Teague had played just 6.6 minutes per game in his previous 27 appearances, and it looks like the first-round pick is going to finish his first professional season with little seasoning. He is shooting just 39.7 percent from the field, and can be ignored in all Fantasy formats.
News: Bulls guard Marquis Teague matched his career high in scoring on Tuesday against the Rockets. The rookie finished with eight points on 4-of-10 shooting in the 120-97 loss. Teague also dished out three assists and blocked a shot while playing 18 minutes off the bench.
Analysis: Teague has not seen a ton of run behind Kirk Hinrich and Nate Robinson thus far and is not contributing enough to be considered a viable option in Fantasy. While the 19-year-old appears to have some decent upside, leave him for long-term formats at this point.
News: Bulls guard Marquis Teague saw his most extensive playing time of the season Wednesday night against the 76ers. With Kirk Hinrich (knee) out, he scored six points while playing 20 minutes off the bench in the 96-89 win. He went 2 for 6 from the floor and made both of his free throws. Teague also posted four assists, two rebounds and two steals while turning the ball over just once.
Analysis: Teague has not seen much run thus far in his rookie campaign as the Bulls continue to develop him. He could see more playing time if Hinrich remains out so keep an eye on the situation going forward. Teague showed a lot of things to like in his days at Kentucky but should continue to be ignored in all but long-term Fantasy formats at this point.
News: Bulls guard Marquis Teague saw the floor for just the second time Saturday against the Timberwolves, after Kirk Hinrich was forced to leave with a hip injury. Teague played six minutes in an 87-80, scoring two points, the first of his NBA career. He added a rebound in the game.
Analysis: If Hinrich is forced to miss significant time, Teague could find himself thrust into a bigger role, whether he is ready or not. He was considered raw coming out of the University of Kentucky as a freshman, but he was still a first round pick. The Bulls could use an injection of energy and athleticism, which Teague would certainly bring. He has no track record, so continue to ignore Teague in yearly Fantasy leagues.
