Marvin Williams, who played only 19 minutes on Monday, finished Wednesday's game with 14 points, two 3-pointers, 11 rebounds, one steal and one block in 33 minutes of action.
The Hornets are making 36.3 percent of their 26.5 attempts from downtown this year, a surprising turnaround for a team that made 6.1 triples on 31.8 percent shooting last season, both last in the NBA. Williams is a big reason for that success and he's been a surprising mid-round value this season. He's likely to slide toward the late rounds, but remains a steal for owners who plucked him off the wire. Nov 25 - 9:38 PM

Marvin Williams played just 19 minutes against the Kings on Monday with nine points, two rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He had a little bit of foul trouble and didn't play in overtime. Williams was burned by Rudy Gay on the last play of regulation, so that might be a factor. He's still putting up must-start value on the season and should be owned in all standard leagues.
Nov 24 - 12:15 AM

Marvin Williams scored 11 points with nine rebounds, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers against the 76ers on Friday.

He just keeps on chugging along and has been fairly consistent, too. Believe it or not, Williams has top-50 per game value on the year. He won't be that good, but his owners should be looking for at least mid-round value if they want to sell high.
Nov 20 - 10:09 PM

Marvin Williams was fined $15,000 for his flagrant 2 foul on Tuesday.

That means he won't be suspended for his shot to Lou Amundson's head. Williams has played very well and the Hornets focusing more on the 3-pointer is a big reason why. Of course, he's a sell-high player.
Nov 18 - 3:21 PM

Marvin Williams was ejected for a flagrant 2 foul during Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks.

He elbowed Lou Amundson in the face, so the call wasn't too controversial. Williams came into the game with a right pectoral strain, and he really struggled with just four points on 1-of-4 shooting with one board, one assist, one steal and one block.
Nov 17 - 9:40 PM

Marvin Williams (right pectoral strain) will start at small forward against the Knicks on Tuesday.

With P.J. Hairston (quad) sidelined, Williams will slide into the small forward spot for Tuesday night. He's averaging 10.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.3 blocks, and 1.7 three-pointers thus far and is making a case for universal ownership in all fantasy leagues.
Nov 17 - 11:42 AM

Marvin Williams (right pectoral strain) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks.

This is the first we've heard of a pectoral injury for Williams, but it doesn't appear to be anything serious whatsoever. Averaging 10.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 1.7 triples, owners overlooking Williams are doing so at their own peril.
Nov 16 - 12:48 PM

Marvin Williams scored 14 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

He did fizzle out as a scorer in his previous three games, failing to score in double-digits in any of those. However, he averaged at least a steal, block, and a three in that span with good production on the glass. Williams should be a solid-late round guy with mid-round upside this season thanks to the Hornets wanting to take so many more 3-pointers.
Nov 14 - 1:31 AM

Marvin Williams attempted only six shots vs. New York, hitting three of them to finish with eight points, two rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes.

The good news is that Marvin contributed one 3-pointer, one steal and three blocks to balance out the lack of scoring and boards. We've been anticipating a cool-down ever since Williams got hot, but the veteran continues to defy expectations with mid-round value through Charlotte's first eight games.
Nov 11 - 9:42 PM

Marvin Williams scored seven points with 10 boards, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes on Tuesday.

Williams is playing well right now and head coach Steve Clifford is clearly a fan, so he is still the power forward to own in Charlotte moving forward. He is averaging 10.4 points, 8.2 boards, 1.2 assists, 1.2 blocks and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five games and will have a favorable matchup against the Knicks on Wednesday.
Nov 11 - 12:33 AM

Marvin Williams scored nine points with four rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes on Saturday against the Spurs.

If you pick up Marvin Williams, you had better not be expecting him to light it up every night. Williams was inside of top-50 value before tonight, which is unsustainable. He's still capable of being a mid-round player in the new system and is worth owning in most cases. To be clear, he probably won't be a mid-round player, though.
Nov 8 - 3:28 AM

Marvin Williams' strong start continued on Thursday against the Mavs with 17 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers.

After being one of the worst teams for treys last year, the Hornets have fully embraced the 3-point shot and it's led to some major output from Marvin. In five games this year, Williams has averages of 11.8 points, 9.8 boards, 1.0 blocks and 2.2 treys. He kind of has to be owned right now.
Nov 6 - 1:00 AM

Marvin Williams hit just 2-of-6 shots and zero 3-pointers for four points in Tuesday's blowout win, but did have 10 rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes.

The Hornets won in blowout fashion so Williams didn't see the normal minutes he's been getting. He's now hit double figures in rebounding in three of his four games, and has scored at least 10 points in the same number of games. He had hit eight 3-pointers in his previous two games and should be owned in all leagues for now.
Nov 3 - 9:37 PM

Marvin Williams got hot from beyond the arc on Sunday, draining five 3-pointers on his way to 15 points, five rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two turnovers through 33 minutes of action.

Williams has gotten off to a hot start this season, compiling averages of 12.7 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.7 three-pointers per game, but we've seen this act before and he could just as easily fade to the background during Charlotte's next game. Still, if you're not a fan of the guy sitting on the end of your bench, it couldn't hurt to pick up the former No. 2 overall selection from the 2005 draft class and see if he can finally put together a consistent NBA season.
Nov 1 - 6:46 PM

Marvin Williams scored 13 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes on Friday.

He looks like the clear winner of the Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) injury. Williams has now double-doubled in both games while the other non-Nic Batum forwards on the team are really struggling. For years, he hasn't been able to break through in fantasy, but this is his best opportunity. We certainly don't blame you for not wanting to pick him up, but he's worth a very long look with how he's spacing the floor for this offense.
