Channing Frye hit 4-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points,, five rebounds and a steal in Wednesday's loss.
This was his first game in double-digit scoring in four games and while he doesn't belong in starting lineups right now, this could be a sign that he's about to become relevant again. Dec 17 - 10:43 PM

Channing Frye hit 4-of-8 shots and 3-of-7 from deep to finish with 11 points, six rebounds and one block over 35 minutes in Friday's road win over the Jazz.

This is a Frye-line if we've ever seen one and evidence that he should be owned in all standard formats. His numbers won't blow you away but they're good for starting consideration during three-game weeks and he's a must-start player during the four-gamers.
Dec 6 - 2:49 AM

Channing Frye hit just 2-of-7 shots for six points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal in 26 minutes on Wednesday.

Frye is in a serious funk right now and has scored in single digits in eight straight games. He's going to get it turned around at some point and the minutes are there, but he just can't get out of his own way right now. Cut him if you must, but you may regret it a week from now. Then again, you might not.
Dec 4 - 1:44 AM

Channing Frye was held to single-digit scoring for the seventh straight game on Tuesday, posting three points with eight rebounds, one steal and two blocks vs. the Warriors.

He fouled out after 30 minutes and fantasy owners should be fed up with his paltry scoring -- he's shooting a combined 11-of-35 from the field (31.4 percent) over the past seven games. It's almost unfortunate that he's chipping in 2.0 threes, 5.3 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 0.5 blocks per game this season, as it makes him difficult to cut loose in 12-team formats.
Dec 3 - 1:16 AM

Channing Frye bounced back from a two-point outing to score nine points on 3-of-7 shooting (3-of-6 3PTs) with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in Friday's loss to the Pacers.

Frye is a top-100 value and that makes him a must-own player in most formats.
Nov 29 - 3:06 AM

Channing Frye was held to single digits for the fourth straight game on Wednesday, making just 1-of-4 shots for two points in 24 minutes vs. Golden State.

Frye added three boards and one block but this was an unvarnished dud for his fantasy owners. The return of Kyle O'Quinn presents another challenge for Frye's playing time, though he has enough upside as a 3-point shooter to be worth hanging onto in most 12-team formats.
Nov 26 - 10:04 PM

Channing Frye hit 3-of-8 shots (all 3-pointers) and finished with 10 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.

Frye has hit a 3-pointer in seven straight games and is averaging 2.6 of them on the season, along with 11.2 points and 6.1 rebounds. He's not all that reliable in the steals and blocks categories, but came through across the board tonight. He's always capable of disappearing for a game, but has bounced back well all season.

Channing Frye said he loves playing as a stretch-four in the Magic's free-flowing style of offense

Frye has been thriving with his new team and is now averaging 12.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals, and 3.2 three-pointers over his last five games. "For me, I love this style and I think it’s how basketball should be played. For me, I’ve found success in playing this way [as a stretch-four] and it’s one of the reasons that I came here to Orlando," said Frye. We'll see if the 31-year-old can keep this up, but fantasy owners should just sit back and enjoy the ride as Frye is currently among the NBA's top-10 in three-pointers made.
Nov 18 - 1:23 PM

Channing Frye hit 4-of-6 shots (all threes) for 12 points, five boards and three assists in Monday's win over the Pistons.

Frye is rolling right now with averages of 10.4 points, 2.4 threes and 5.7 boards since getting back on the floor. He should be in most, if not all lineups.
Nov 18 - 12:40 AM

Channing Frye turned in another nice game against the Wizards on Saturday with 14 points, seven rebounds, two steals and four 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

He's making the most of his minutes without Kyle O'Quinn (ankle) and there's really no way Frye should be sitting on the wire in any league. He'll continue to get his shots and the rebounding numbers have been better than expected.
Nov 15 - 9:36 PM

Channing Frye hit just 2-of-8 shots (2-of-7 from deep) to finish with six points, eight rebounds, one assist and three steals in Friday's win over the Bucks.

It's not flashy but it gets the job done as Frye has easily moved into top-100 status.
Nov 14 - 11:14 PM

Channing Frye hit just 4-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, six rebounds and a block in 38 minutes on Wednesday.

We were thinking he might have a big game against his former team, but it never developed. The minutes are there and he's going to be better than this on most nights, so don't be afraid to drop him into your lineup right now. Teammate Tobias Harris wasn't much better, finishing with 12 points and five boards, but the Magic still upended the Knicks.
Nov 12 - 11:30 PM

Channing Frye scored 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting in Tuesday's loss, making 5-of-8 shots from downtown in his best game as a member of the Magic.

He filled out his line with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and just one turnover in a game-high 43 minutes of action. He has quietly found his rhythm after missing the beginning of the season with a sprained MCL, and belongs in all but the shallowest fantasy rosters.
Nov 11 - 10:26 PM

Channings Frye scored an efficient 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting Sunday, to go along with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists, and three turnovers.

Frye also played 33 minutes, so his MCL sprain that sidelined him for the beginning of the season appears to be a non-issue moving forward. Frye is averaging just 7.0 FGA per game, down from the 9.5 FGA he averaged with the Suns last season, so he doesn't appear to be a major component of Orlando's offense. Still, his ability to offer 3-point shooting from the power forward position, without hurting you in any one statistical category makes him worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 9 - 7:27 PM

Channing Frye made it through Orlando's first back-to-back set without any problems, despite missing the entire preseason with a knee injury.

He logged 36 minutes on Wednesday and said he felt "pretty good," so his sprained MCL is obviously not a lingering problem. Frye is a career 38.4 percent shooter from downtown and he's averaging 6.3 attempts from downtown in Orlando's past three games, which is a great sign for his fantasy value going forward.
