Marvin Williams went 4-of-8 from deep vs. the Lakers on Sunday, finishing an easy win in L.A. with 19 points, 12 rebounds (four offensive), three blocks, two assists and one steal.

The Hornets made 11 triples in the first half, setting a new season-high, and Marvin was a big reason for the success. Perimeter defense is one of the few areas in which the Lakers have been above-average this season, so the team-wide eruption was pleasantly unexpected. Williams has been impressive for a variety of reasons this year and it's reflected in his stats -- tonight marked his career-high eighth double-double of the season.
Feb 1 - 12:23 AM

Marvin Williams scored a team-high 20 points against the Blazers on Friday with nine rebounds, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He played 100 percent of his minutes at power forward, which is likely going to continue now that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is back. Williams is a better off-ball player than Frank Kaminsky right now and is a better fit in the offense, so expect him to get the lion's share of the minutes. He's a hold, especially with Frank struggling big time.
Jan 30 - 2:15 AM

Marvin Williams scored 21 points in 33 minutes before ultimately fouling out in Monday's double-overtime win over the Kings.

The forward added five boards, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers, and he shot 8-of-17 from the field. Williams just won't go away, and the injury to Cody Zeller (shoulder) means that he is poised to play big minutes moving forward. He is averaging 11.6 points, 8.2 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five games and is worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 26 - 1:23 AM

Marvin Williams made 1-of-8 from the field for four points with 12 rebounds and no turnovers in 35 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

At least the boards and minutes were there for him. Williams is starting to trend up and is playing the big/important minutes for the Hornets, so he should be owned in standard leagues. Frank Kaminsky isn't gaining ground on him anymore.
Jan 23 - 10:15 PM

Marvin Williams grabbed a season-high 14 boards against the Magic on Friday with 11 points, two assists, two steals, one block and one turnover.

He made just 3-of-11 from the field in his 34 minutes, but Williams had a very good defensive game and played the clutch minutes. He'll likely lose some value in a month or so, but he's holding sixth-round value in January. He's worth owning.
Jan 22 - 10:22 PM

Marvin Williams played a season-high 44 minutes against the Jazz on Monday, scoring 19 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers.

Revenge game for the former Jazz Man? The Hornets are playing Marvin at the three a little more these days and he's played 9.0 minutes per game next to Frank Kaminsky in his last three games. Perhaps the two power forwards can co-exist, so Marvin is still a hold if you've stuck with him this long.
Jan 18 - 5:54 PM

Marvin Williams scored 14 points against the Bucks on Saturday with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He's not lighting it up like he was back in November, but he's still hitting treys and adding some other stats. Williams isn't going to be anything more than a low-end player to own in standard leagues and he is trending down.
Jan 16 - 9:25 PM

Marvin Williams posted a minimalistic stat line on Friday, putting up just 10 points, three boards, four assists, one 3-pointer, one block and one turnover through 27 minutes of action.

Williams’ value has been on a steady downward trajectory since his unsustainable hot start to the season, and over the past month he's been putting up just late-round value in standard leagues. He's still worth owning as a low-end guy in 9-cat formats, but no one should be expecting him to be the mid-round guy he was to start the year.
Jan 15 - 11:18 PM

Marvin Williams played only 19 minutes vs. the Hawks on Wednesday, notching eight points, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

It's not a bad return, fantasy-wise, considering the limited playing time. Charlotte turned this game into a blowout, which contributed to Williams' low minutes, but he faces a perpetual threat from Frank Kaminsky (29 minutes), whom the Hornets have plenty of incentive to develop. That said, Williams continues to defy expectations with late-round value in 9-cat leagues.
Jan 13 - 10:35 PM

Marvin Williams played 30 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday with seven points, three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

He made just 3-of-12 from the field and did not play well. That said, today was kind of a positive for his value going forward because Frank Kaminsky has been terrible. Williams is still a hold in standard leagues.
Jan 9 - 6:15 PM

Marvin Williams played 29 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday, scoring 15 points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He's gaining some fantasy value because his competition, Frank Kaminsky, is falling on his face. In his last four, Williams averaged 11.0 points, 5.3 boards, 1.0 blocks, 0.3 steals and 2.0 treys. That's good for fifth-round value in somewhat limited playing time, so those who held him should feel a little better now.
Jan 7 - 1:39 AM

Marvin Williams played 30 minutes against the Warriors on Monday with eight points, six rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers.

It's the first time he's hit 30 minutes since Dec. 19. Frank Kaminsky was a threat to Marvin's playing time, but the rookie hasn't played well. Even though he's had horrible run, Williams still was able to put up top-150 value in his bad eight-game run. He should still be owned in standard leagues.
Jan 5 - 2:47 AM

Marvin Williams scored 17 points against the Raptors on Friday with four rebounds, one assist, one block and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He really needed a good game and hasn't played well in his past handful of games. Williams is clearly losing minutes to Frank Kaminsky and he's only put up 14th-round value in his last 10 games. He's not a must-own player anymore, but he's still someone most owners should hold.
Jan 1 - 10:54 PM

Marvin Williams (neck strain) will play vs. the Lakers on Monday.

Frank Kaminsky is earning more minutes in Charlotte, so Williams will need to play well in order to secure his role. He is averaging 8.6 points, 5.8 boards, 1.2 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five games.
