2019 Fantasy Outlook
Holiday averaged 10.5 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.5 steals per game last season, splitting time between the Bulls and Timberwolves. He saw significant run for both teams, starting 77 games and playing 31.8 minutes per contest -- his second straight season with at least 31 minutes. Holiday also drained 2.0 threes per game in 2018-19, and he's averaged 2.1 threes on 35.4 percent shooting from deep in his last two seasons. Though he got a lot of playing time for the Bulls and Grizzlies, his minutes are likely to be reduced substantially as part of a deep Pacers lineup. Victor Oladipo, Jeremy Lamb and T.J. Warren are all firmly ahead of Holiday on the depth chart, and his role will be scaled back as he comes off the bench. But Holiday could still be a useful source of threes and steals as a deep-league add in 2019-20. Read Past Outlooks

Past Season Summaries
2018

Justin Holiday began the 2018-2019 campaign with the Chicago Bulls. He started 38 games at shooting guard and saw heavy minutes. Holiday played 35 minutes per contest, parlaying those minutes into averages of 11.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists. The 6-foot-6 wing had a monstrous double-double on Nov. 23 against Miami, tallying 27 points and 13 rebounds in a 103-96 loss. Despite the significant playing time, Holiday was dealt to the Memphis Grizzlies on Jan. 3. Holiday ended up starting 39 of the 44 games he appeared in with the Grizzlies, putting up similar numbers in slightly fewer minutes with 9.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists per contest. The 30-year-old matched a career high with 30 points towards the end of the season in an overtime loss to Dallas on Apr. 7. Holiday's durability and defense enabled him to appear in all 82 games for the season. Holiday averaged 1.9 steals-plus-blocks per game between the two organizations. His 121 steals for the season ranked 11th league-wide. Holiday recorded at least three steals in a game on 18 different occasions. This was Holiday's second season of playing in a full 82 games.

2017

Holiday was traded by Chicago to the Knicks in June 2016 in the deal that sent Derrick Rose to New York. After one season with the Knicks, Holiday returned to the Bulls as a free agent in the summer of 2017 and saw his role expand considerably in his second stint at the Windy City. Holiday averaged 31.5 minutes per game, by far the highest total of his career and started the 72 games he played. Not surprisingly, Holiday's increased playing time resulted in increased production. Holiday set new career-highs in points (12.2), rebounds (4.0), assists (2.1) and steals (1.1) during the 2017-18 campaign. The University of Washington product proved capable of contributing in several different areas. Holiday had eight games in which he posted at least 20 points, a pair of double-digit rebounding contests, and seven games with at least three steals. He finished with seven made threes in a win over Miami on January 15 after never hitting more than five in a single game.

2016

During June 2016, Holiday was traded from the Bulls along with Derrick Rose and a 2017 second-round draft pick to the Knicks in exchange for Jose Calderon, Jerian Grant and Robin Lopez. Holiday proceeded to take on biggest role of his career. With New York, he appeared in all 82 games (four starts), averaging 20.0 minutes per contest. He averaged career highs in points (7.7), rebounds (2.7) and all three shooting percentages (43.3 field goal, 35.5 three point, 82.5 free throw). Holiday also set new single-game career marks of nine rebounds and six steals. His six-steal performance Dec. 15 against the Warriors was his best all-around effort of the year. Holiday also chipped in 15 points, three assists, two rebounds and a block across 23 minutes. Holiday's best extended stretch of the season occurred from Dec. 2-20. Across those 10 games, he averaged 8.2 points on 6.1 shots, plus 3.5 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.5 assists in 20.7 minutes. The Knicks finished the campaign 31-51 and did not qualify for the postseason.

2015

In July 2015, Holiday signed a contract with the Hawks. He proceeded to appear in 26 games (one start) with the team, averaging 2.4 points and 1.0 rebounds in 10.1 minutes. In February, he was traded from the Hawks to the Bulls as part of a three-team deal. Holiday then appeared in 27 games (four starts) with the Bulls, averaging 6.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 18.9 minutes. Over the entirety of the campaign, Holiday set a new career high in three-point accuracy (34.3 percent) and also set new single-game career highs in both points (29) and blocks (four). His 29-point effort took place April 13 during a 10-point win over the 76ers. He shot 9-for-15 from the field, 5-for-7 from three and 6-for-8 from the free-throw line while also contributing five assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block. Holiday had three performances with at least two blocks, three games with at least five rebounds and 32 games with at least one assist. He also posted 23 games with at least one steal and 14 games with at least one block. The Bulls finished the season 42-40 but did not make the postseason.

2014

Holiday signed a contract with the Warriors in September of 2014. He proceeded to appear in 59 games (four starts) during the 2014-15 season. In 11.1 minutes per game, he averaged 4.3 points, 1.2 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 0.6 three-pointers. "The Fireman" snagged a career-high five steals on Jan. 13 during a win at Utah. He collected two or more steals in nine games. Holiday scored a career-high 23 points during his best overall performance of the season, which occurred on Mar. 13 during a loss to the Nuggets. Holiday played 36 minutes and shot 9-of-16 from the field and drained a career-high five three-pointers while also accumulating three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block. The Warriors finished the season 67-15 and won the NBA title. They defeated the Pelicans in the Western Conference First Round, the Grizzlies in the Western Conference Semifinals, the Rockets in the Western Conference Finals and, finally, the Cavaliers in the Finals. Holiday saw 11 minutes of playing time during the playoffs. He totaled three points, one rebound and one assist.

2013

Holiday spent the 2013-14 overseas. He played in Hungary with Szolnoki Olaj. He appeared in 50 games, drawing 38 starts and seeing 27.5 minutes per contest. He averaged 12.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.3 steals. Holiday also shot 40.4 percent from three on 4.6 attempts per matchup. He set single-game highs of 25 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, four steals and three blocks. Holiday's best overall performance of the season was Feb. 25 during a win over Cholet Basket. He posted 22 points (7-10 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and one steal across 29 minutes.

2012

Following four seasons in college at Washington, Holiday went unselected during the 2011 NBA Draft. He spent the 2011-12 season overseas in Belgium with Okapi Aalstar, where he averaged 7.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 steals in 22.9 minutes. Holiday spent most of the 2012-13 season in the D-League with the Idaho Stampede, where he averaged 17.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.4 steals and 1.1 blocks in 34.7 minutes. Those numbers led to him signing two 10-day contracts with the 76ers in April. He proceeded to play nine games for the 76ers, where he averaged 4.7 points, 1.7 assists, 1.6 rebounds and a combined 1.0 blocks-plus-steals. Holiday made his NBA debut April 4 against Charlotte, recording two points and two rebounds in seven minutes. His best scoring output of the season came April 15 against the Pistons, when Holiday logged 11 points (3-9 FG), two rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2015
Last season, Holiday was afforded the opportunity to start double-digit games for the first time in his career. Across his previous four seasons, the University of Washington product drew just 13 starts with four different teams (Warriors, Hawks, Bulls, Knicks) after going undrafted in 2011. Holiday set career highs almost across the board, averaging 12.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 31.5 minutes. Though he struggled with efficiency (37.1 percent from the field), Holiday continued to flash his potential as a scorer, racking up eight twenty-point games. That said, with the Bulls re-signing Zach LaVine and adding Jabari Parker through free agency, there may be fewer minutes to go around for Holiday. As a result, he can probably go unselected in most Fantasy drafts, despite his breakout season.
Holiday's 2016-17 campaign was once again at a new destination, as the 28-year-old journeyman's stop in New York was the fourth organization he's played for over his first three seasons in the NBA. However, for the first time, Holiday was able to take part in all 82 games after playing less than 60 contests every other year, allowing him to put up career numbers. Holiday finished the season boosting his points (7.7), rebounds (2.8) and assists (1.2) for a year prior, while also posting career highs as a shooter with a 43.3 percent clip from the field and 35.5 percent from the three-point line. After signing a two-year, $9 million contract with the Bulls this offseason, Holiday could be in line for a slightly larger role. That said, with Zach LaVine, Paul Zipser and Denzel Valentine seeing time at shooting guard and/or small forward as well, Holiday is going to have plenty of competition for minutes. The potential buyout of Dwyane Wade could be especially beneficial for Holiday's value, though even if Wade sticks around, look for Holiday's numbers to once again trend upwards despite remaining in a bench role.
In his second season, Holiday averaged 4.3 points, 1.2 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 11 minutes per game through 59 regular season games. Holiday shot 39 percent from the field, 32 percent from downtown, and 82 percent from the charity stripe before being mostly relegated to the bench in the playoffs during the Warriors' championship run. He's 26 years old, but having played in only 68 regular season games during his career, he still has relatively little NBA playing experience. Still, in four games as a starter last season, he averaged of 10.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal, and 0.5 blocks in 25 minutes per game while shooting 49 percent from the floor, 46 percent from deep, and 75 percent from the free-throw line. Holiday may be unlikely to earn significant playing time in 2015-16, but his length, athleticism, and outside shooting will be warmly welcomed given DeMarre Carroll's departure this offseason.
