Description: Suns small forward P.J. Tucker will have a tough time being a valuable fantasy asset in 2014-15.
Insight: While he gave solid rebounding production (6.5 RPG) last season, Tucker simply does not provide enough elsewhere (9.4 PPG, 1.7 APG, 1.4 SPG), for owners to take him even in the middle rounds. We would probably leave Tucker undrafted, but if anybody really wants him, target him late in drafts.

Description: Suns swingman P.J. Tucker will spend the first three games of the 2014-15 season on the bench after being suspended by the NBA for a DUI according to nba.com.
Insight: Tucker blew a .222 blood alcohol level when the legal limit in Arizona is .08. The small forward averaged 9.4 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 1.7 apg last season
 
4/9/2014 10:34:00 PM
Description: Suns swingman P.J. Tucker had 15 points, nine rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes Wednesday at New Orleans.
Insight: Tucker has been one of the top rebounders among shooting-guard eligible players this season and averaged 11.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.9 steals and 1.1 threes over his last 18 games.

Insight: Tucker (9.4 ppg, 6.6 rpg) took a swing at Blake Griffin on Monday and the league has rules against that sort of thing. It's a huge break for Gerald Green (15.7 ppg), who was probably headed back to the bench with Eric Bledsoe (torn meniscus) set to return from a two-month absence.

Description: Phoenix G/F P.J. Tucker threw a punch at Blake Griffin Monday night and fantasy owners should prepare for his suspension.
Insight: Tucker doesn't score much but is one of the top rebounders at his position (6.6 rpg). This only helps Gerald Green, who is already averaging 22.0 ppg over his last six contests.
 
3/5/2014 9:25:00 AM
Description: Phoenix G/F P.J. Tucker had a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds in 39 minutes Tuesday.
Insight: Tucker doesn't score much but is one of the top rebounders among shooting guards. He has averaged 10.1 points, 8.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.5 steals his last 11 games. Tucker will probably see fewer minutes when Eric Bledsoe returns to the lineup, as the Suns will have to find time for Gerald Green and his 15.2 ppg.
 
2/19/2014 9:15:00 AM
Description: Phoenix G/F P.J. Tucker has averaged 10.4 points, 8.1 rebounds and 0.9 steals over his last 19 games and had 13 points and 11 boards Tuesday night.
Insight: Tucker is one of the top rebounders among shooting-guard eligible players. He has scored at least 13 points in four straight games and pulled down double-digit rebounds in two of them.
 
2/9/2014 9:23:00 AM
Description: Phoenix G/F P.J. Tucker had 16 points, 15 rebounds, four thefts and two treys Saturday against the Warriors.
Insight: Tucker won't wow you with his production but he's eligible at shooting guard and has averaged 10 points, 7.9 rebounds and 0.9 steals over his last 17 games. Tucker is fourth among SG-eligible players with 6.3 rebounds per game this season.

Insight: Tucker's a pretty hit or miss fantasy choice. If you're thin at small forward or shooting guard, he could be worth a look.
 
1/26/2014 8:46:00 PM
Description: Suns forward P.J. Tucker had a nice line Sunday with 13 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and two steals.
Insight: Tucker has shooting guard eligibility and is among the leaders at that position with 6.0 rebounds per game. He's also averaging 9.3 points, 1.2 steals and 1.0 threes per game.
 
1/11/2014 10:18:00 PM
Description: Suns forward P.J. Tucker's 17 points Saturday were his most since Dec. 6.
Insight: Tucker added 11 rebounds and three triples Saturday at Detroit. The 28-year-old has started all 36 games for the Suns this season and played 30 minutes per game, but he's only a borderline fantasy option averaging 9.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.0 threes per game.
 
12/7/2013 9:20:00 AM
Description: Suns forward P.J. Tucker has scored 18 points in two straight games and had 13 rebounds in 38 minutes Friday against the Raptors.
Insight: Tucker has started all 20 games for the surprising Suns and is averaging 9.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.3 threes per game, which makes him a fantasy option in deep leagues.
