Earl Boykins on a Scoring Tear

Milwaukee Bucks point guard Earl Boykins has averaged 20 points and 1.5 three-pointers in his last four games.

The Breakdown
The smallest player in the NBA has been putting up some big scoring nights. He was barely getting off the bench when Brandon Jennings was healthy, but he's averaged close to 30 minutes a game since Jennings went down. Head coach Scott Skiles has been playing a lot of small ball with Boykins and Keyon Dooling on the court together and it has worked out well for both player's fantasy values. Team managers in all formats should consider Boykins as another scoring and three-point option until Jennings returns. He's also helpful in the percentages, but be aware he won't give you much in any other category. He's available in nearly every league.
