Lou Williams came off the bench for 27 points, two rebounds, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers on 7-of-16 shooting in 26 minutes on Wednesday.
Williams has hit double figures in seven straight games and has only scored in single digits one time in 14 January games, and this is officially your notice to pick him up. Just don't expect him to do this every night, as he's only scored 20 or more points in three of those 14 games. Jan 29 - 12:06 AM

Lou Williams scored 15 points on 4-of-12 shooting (2-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-5 FTs) with two rebounds, two assists and four steals in 28 minutes off the bench on Monday.

DeMar DeRozan went 0-for-9 from the field and logged just 26 minutes, which isn't going to happen every night, but Williams at least has a chance of holding some low-end value in standard formats.
Jan 20 - 12:00 AM

Lou Williams had a nice game on Sunday, scoring 17 points on 4-of-9 shooting (9-of-10 from the line) with two steals and an assist over 20.7 minutes of action.

Williams was playing well even when DeMar DeRozan was healthy, so the return of DeRozan shouldn't have too much of a negative impact on Williams. He's locked into the Sixth Man role in Toronto, and while he doesn't do much aside from score, he's more than capable of sustaining low-end value in standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 8:00 PM

Lou Williams had a nice game against his former team on Wednesday with 19 points, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the 76ers.

He actually had one of his hottest stretches of the season just before the DeMar DeRozan injury, so a decent game tonight shouldn't come as a big surprise. Williams will be a low-end guy in standard leagues.
Jan 14 - 11:08 PM

Lou Williams scored 15 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 7-of-14 shots (including a three) with one rebound, three assists and one block in 24 minutes.

Lou has been struggling lately and DeMar DeRozan's return is still cloudy, but it's going to happen sooner rather than later. Owners shouldn't pass up a hot free agent to hang onto Sweet Lou.
Jan 12 - 10:59 PM

Lou Williams made 4-of-15 from the field for 15 points with four rebounds, five assists and one turnover in 28 minutes against the Hornets on Thursday.

He continues to shoot the ball poorly and made just 39.9 percent from the floor over the past month. Williams has consistently been in that neighborhood all season, but his efficiency might rise once DeMar DeRozan (groin) comes back. He's likely to be more of a late-round guy the rest of the way than the mid-round one we saw the past month.
Jan 8 - 10:15 PM

Lou Williams scored 20 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 6-of-14 shots (1-of-5 from deep, 7-of-7 from the line) with three rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes.

Owners should simply ride Williams out until DeMar DeRozan returns next week and figure out a contingency plan as we near DeRozan's return date next Thursday. It's possible that Williams holds value in 12-team leagues at that time but not likely.
Jan 3 - 3:06 AM

Lou Williams shot just 1-of-10 from the field in Tuesday's loss to Portland, finishing with seven points and three boards in 26 minutes.

After scoring 31 points on Saturday, this was quite disappointing from Williams considering he is a candidate for Sixth Man of the Year. Regardless, his owners will have to take the good with the bad and should hold onto him for his ability to produce 3-pointers, points, and steals. Expect him to redeem himself vs. the Warriors on Friday.

Lou Williams scored 31 points on 11-of-18 shooting in a win over the Nuggets on Saturday, adding five boards, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He broke out of his slump in a big way, and was unstoppable all game long. Williams has been an obvious candidate for Sixth Man of the Year, and he should continue to be owned in standard leagues for his ability to contribute in 3-pointers, points, assists, and steals.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 12:00:00 AM

Lou Williams stayed cold against the Clippers on Saturday with nine points, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He only made 3-of-10 from the field in his last game on Monday. Williams has seen his shooting numbers come down this month and has only made 39.1 percent from the field even before this dud. Williams is still doing enough to in triples, free throw percentage and points to remain owned in standard leagues.

Lou Williams lit up the Knicks on Sunday for 22 points (6-of-14 shooting) to go with four 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist, and a steal.

This is what Lou does. He doesn't offer much peripheral stats, but if you're looking for some points, treys, and a free throw percentage booster, he's your guy. He's averaging 14.4 points and 1.8 three-pointers this season while shooting 41.8 percent from the field and 86.4 percent from the charity stripe (on 4.4 attempts per game). He's certainly in the running for Sixth Man of the Year.

Lou Williams scored 18 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 6-of-14 shots (including a three) with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 28 minutes.

Williams will be streaky in his bench role but he's a must-own player as long as DeMar DeRozan is out.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 02:09:00 AM

Lou Williams scored 26 points on 9-of-18 shooting (including five threes) with four rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Williams is a top 90-100 play on the season in just 21 mpg, which he is going to get on most nights while DeMar DeRozan is out. He's a must-own player right now, but expect inconsistency and see if he was dropped during this recent cold streak.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 01:03:00 AM

Lou Williams had another quiet game on Tuesday, scoring six points with one 3-pointer, one rebound and four assists in 20 minutes off the Raptors' bench.

Williams must be very efficient to impress fantasy owners, as he's averaging a mere 22 minutes per game as a reserve. His playing time has hardly budged since DeMar DeRozan's groin injury, so owners should be resigned to inconsistency from Lou Will.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 09:48:00 PM

Lou Williams scored a game-high 26 points against the Nuggets during a 112-107 overtime win on Monday, adding three rebounds, one assist and 3-pointers.

His last 3-pointer was a dagger in overtime. Williams played 28 minutes tonight, which was big because he wasn't above 20 in two of his previous three games. Williams is going to be very inconsistent, but he should wind up holding low-end value in standard leagues.
