Marvin Williams scored 16 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.
He has been one of the hottest non-star players in the NBA and he did take advantage of guys like Frank Kaminsky going down. With Kaminsky blossoming as a five man, Williams should still be seeing minutes in the low 30s and score in the teens. He probably won't be the early-round guy he's been recently, but his owners should be expecting him to flirt with top-50 value. Mar 18 - 10:27 PM

Marvin Williams cooled off on Wednesday, going 2-of-8 from the field for four points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.

Williams came in with five double-doubles in his past six games, but neither he nor his teammates could generate any offense tonight. The Hornets have lost three of their last four games and they'll really need Williams to get back on track if Nic Batum (migraines) isn't ready to play by Saturday.
Mar 15 - 10:14 PM

Marvin Williams scored 13 points and tied his career-high with 18 rebounds on Monday vs. the Bulls.

He still played 38 minutes with Frank Kaminsky (shoulder) back in the lineup, but keep in mind that his minutes could take a small hit once Nicolas Batum (migraine) returns. Williams shot 5-of-12 from the field with five assists, one block and one triple, and he's been a first-round player in standard leagues since the break. He's going to eventually cool off, but his owners have to love this run.
Mar 13 - 10:56 PM

Marvin Williams kept his torrid stretch going during a 125-122 loss to the Pelicans on Saturday, scoring a season-high 27 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

It's his seventh double-double on the year and fourth in his last five, which is part of the reason he's been so scorching hot. Williams came out like gangbusters in the first half with 20 points for his first 20-plus scoring half since the 2015-16 season. Believe it or not, Williams has been a top-eight player for total value since the break. Sure, he won't be this good, but this is quite a run for the must-start power forward.
Mar 11 - 10:24 PM

Marvin Williams exploded during a 121-81 win over the Magic on Friday, grabbing a career-high 18 rebounds with 12 points, seven dimes, one steal and one turnover in 33 minutes.

Marvelous. His dimes also matched a career high in this win. Williams doesn't really have a backup right now, so he is getting all he can eat until Frank Kaminsky (shoulder) gets back. Coach Steve Clifford loves his defense and he probably trusts him enough to use him against Anthony Davis on Saturday or really any big man. Williams has been a sneaky difference maker in fantasy with third-round value in the last two months.
Mar 10 - 10:14 PM

Marvin Williams bounced back from Monday's 1-of-7 shooting performance to score 14 points on 5-of-8 FGs in 37 minutes on Wednesday.

Williams added 12 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one 3-pointer, rounding out a terrific line for his fantasy owners. The Hornets' frontcourt injury problems have thrust more minutes onto Williams and he's responded in style, flirting with top-50 value since the All-Star break.
Mar 8 - 11:07 PM

Marvin Williams scored just six points on 1-of-7 shooting vs. the Pacers on Monday.

This was a huge letdown considering Williams logged 40 minutes. He added five rebounds, one steal, one block and hit all four of his free throws, but couldn't connect on any of his five 3-point attempts. Williams has been returning early-round value since the break and averaged 16.3 points and 3.0 3-pointers in his previous three games, so his owners have no reason to panic after one bad game.
Mar 6 - 11:28 PM

Marvin Williams scored 14 points with 12 rebounds during a 112-102 win in Denver on Saturday, adding three assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Coach Steve Clifford loves his defense and he even put him on Nikola Jokic at times during this game. Williams doesn't really have a backup right now with Frank Kaminsky (shoulder) out, so there is big playing time headed his way. He should be owned in all standard leagues and has posted third-round value since the break.
Mar 5 - 12:25 AM

Marvin Williams scored 19 points with four rebounds, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Suns on Thursday.

He could be looking at some serious minutes because Frank Kaminsky (shoulder) may be missing some time. Williams was already posting top-75 value in February, so he has made it fairly clear he should be owned in standard leagues right now.
Mar 3 - 12:20 AM

Marvin Williams (right shoulder strain) scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

He was listed as questionable in the game notes, but his status was never really in doubt -- The Hornets didn't even update his status before tip-off. He logged 34 minutes and added six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and four 3-pointers, passing Matt Carroll for the seventh most 3-pointers in Hornets history. He's worth deploying in most leagues until further notice.
Mar 1 - 1:34 AM

Marvin Williams (right shoulder strain) is starting on Tuesday vs. the Lakers .

He was listed as questionable in the game notes, but the Hornets didn't update his status which suggests that the injury isn't serious. Get him active.
Feb 28 - 10:27 PM

Marvin Williams (right shoulder strain) is listed as questionable in the game notes for Thursday's matchup with the Lakers.

This is the first we've heard of a shoulder issue for Williams, who hasn't missed a game since early December. In fact, Williams is averaging 38.4 minutes over the Hornets last four games. With Cody Zeller (quad) also listed as questionable, the Hornets would be very thin up front if Williams is unable to play. Christian Wood would see a big bump in minutes and Johnny O'Bryant would probably make his Hornets debut. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist would also likely be asked to slide over and play PF at times.

Marvin Williams scored 16 points with six rebounds, one block, two steals and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

He was in some kind of slump heading into the break, but he's out of it to start the second half. Williams played 40 minutes with 13 points on Thursday during a loss to the Pistons. Plus, his minutes are also up because the Hornets are playing Frank Kaminsky at the five now. He should be owned in standard leagues.
Feb 25 - 8:40 PM

Marvin Williams was held to four points on 1-of-7 shooting vs. the 76ers on Monday.

Yikes. Williams logged 33 minutes and missed all five attempts from beyond the arc, adding two assists with one steal and zero rebounds. The 76ers are actually a top-5 team in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing power forwards, but expect a much better effort on Wednesday vs. the Raptors. He's a hold in standard leagues with averages of 13.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.4 3-pointers in his previous five games.
Feb 13 - 9:53 PM

Marvin Williams scored 16 points with 14 rebounds on Saturday vs. the Jazz.

This was his third double-double of the season. Williams shot 5-of-10 from the field against his former team, adding one assist, three steals, one block and three triples in 38 minutes. He's now played 30+ minutes in six straight games, returning top-60 value in standard leagues in that span.
