Channing Frye played 21 minutes off the bench against the Raptors on Monday with 12 points, six rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers.
He played down the stretch and was a big reason for a fourth quarter charge. The Cavs are using him at center to help open things up and keep Bismack Biyombo away from the rim. Plus, Kevin Love isn't making shots and can't rebound right now. Frye might hit 25 minutes in Game 5. May 23 - 11:15 PM

Channing Frye was on fire during a win over the Hawks on Friday, scoring a playoff career-high 27 points with seven rebounds, one steal and seven 3-pointers.

Well, that deal with the Magic at the trade deadline is worth it now. He was 10-of-13 from the field to give him a 103.8 effective field goal percentage. Frye scored a grand total of three points in the series against the Pistons, but he's scored 20 in the previous two games. He picked up some extra run in the third quarter because Kevin Love got into some foul trouble and was able to keep it rolling. He'll likely go back into a secondary role in Game 4.
May 6 - 10:10 PM

Channing Frye came off Cleveland's bench on Wednesday for 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, five boards, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes of action.

Cleveland hit 18 threes in the first half thanks to solid ball-movement, lax defense and unconscious shooting, and Frye merely picked up where the starters left off. Richard Jefferson added eight points with three 3-pointers, Iman Shumpert scored seven points on 3-of-3 shooting, and even Dahntay Jones got into the mix with three points -- his only make was the 3-pointer that broke the previous NBA record for most threes made in a game.
May 4 - 10:40 PM

Cavs GM David Griffin praised Channing Frye for being a "huge, huge plus" in the locker room.

"We needed someone who was truly joyful to be part of the process to remind everybody how blessed we are to be together," Griffin said. It's a little odd that a Cavs team filled with talent needed a reminder to enjoy the chance to achieve greatness, but it speaks volumes that Frye, Dahntay Jones and James Jones have such an impact on team chemistry for a roster that includes LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving.

Channing Frye played 41 minutes as a starter on Wednesday, notching 14 points, six rebounds, four assists and one steal in a home loss.

The Cavs were playing with half of their team tonight, as Iman Shumpert and Mo Williams are injured and four players were rested. Frye made 6-of-10 shots with one 3-pointer, and he's fitting in nicely as a stretch big man, but tonight's result has zero bearing on his role for the postseason.
Apr 13 - 11:47 PM

Channing Frye scored five points with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 14 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

Well, the milk has finally gone bad for Frye. He was one of the most efficient players over a five-game span before Wednesday, but he's cold again. He's a drop candidate for those who hoped he'd stay hot.
Mar 24 - 10:16 PM

Channing Frye was scoreless in 13 minutes off the Cavs' bench on Wednesday.

The sharp-shooting big man has been as-advertised since joining the Cavaliers, draining 22-of-37 triples in his previous seven games, but he didn't have it tonight. There's no lack of 3-point specialists on most waiver wires, so Frye isn't a very appealing asset.
Mar 23 - 10:06 PM

Channing Frye will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Bucks, with Kevin Love back in the starting lineup.

Frye should still be able to earn roughly 20 minutes off the bench tonight, so his value isn't going to take a massive hit with the demotion to the second unit. He's worth a look in deep leagues for those seeking a 3-point specialist that can sprinkle in some blocks here and there.
Mar 23 - 6:49 PM

Channing Frye scored 14 points with three rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Nuggets.

You could argue he's been better than Kevin Love and the Cavs offense has looked great at times with Love on the bench. Frye's minutes have been trending up even when Love plays and he's shockingly been a fourth-round player in his last seven games. The chances of him staying this hot are pretty slim, but he's worth a look if you want to ride him while he's hot.
Mar 21 - 10:24 PM

Channing Frye will start on Monday vs. the Nuggets.

Kevin Love (illness) is out with an illness, so both Frye and Tristan Thompson should get solid minutes tonight. Frye's actually been pretty decent in Cleveland and has averages of 10.6 points, 3.4 boards, 1.2 assists and 2.8 3-pointers over his last five games in just 18.8 minutes, so he's certainly worth a look for any owner in need of triples. He's also a nice target in DFS for his low price tag.
Mar 21 - 6:03 PM

Channing Frye scored 14 points with one rebound, two assists and four 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

He's actually been very good for the Cavs, averaging 14.2 points, 4.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 0.6 blocks and 3.6 treys in just 20.4 minutes over his last five games. Frye has some low-end value in 14-team leagues, especially if you need treys.
Mar 18 - 10:33 PM

Channing Frye made three more 3-pointers on Wednesday to finish a 99-98 home victory with 14 points, three rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes off the bench.

Frye is thriving on easy shots created by his dynamic teammates, allowing him to float around the perimeter for spot-up 3-pointers -- over the past four games he's a combined 14-of-22 beyond the arc. Barring an injury to Kevin Love, however, he's strictly a 3-point specialist.
Mar 16 - 10:56 PM

Channing Frye was ejected from Monday's game vs. the Jazz due to an altercation with Trey Lyles.

It wasn't anything too crazy and you can check out the incident in the link below. Frye was coming into tonight's game with averages of 18.0 points, 4.5 boards, 2.0 assists and 5.0 3-pointers in his previous two games, but he fell back to Earth on Monday with seven points, four boards, two assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes. He's better suited for deeper leagues.
Mar 15 - 1:41 AM

Channing Frye logged 20 minutes off the bench on Sunday, scoring 15 points on 5-of-8 shooting to go with five 3-pointers, five boards, two assists and one turnover.

Frye moved back to the bench with Kevin Love (leg) back in action, but he still found a way to be effective, and this was an encouraging performance after he went off for 21 points in his previous outing. Frye can fall off at a moment's notice, but with two consecutive productive outings, he may be worth a speculative add in deep leagues. It'll be interesting to see if he can keep his momentum going into Monday's game with a tough matchup against Utah.
Mar 13 - 6:30 PM

Channing Frye started in place of Kevin Love (leg) on Thursday vs. the Lakers and exploded for 21 points on 8-of-10 shooting from the field.

He was on fire from deep, hitting 5-of-7 3-pointers while adding seven boards, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes. The Lakers aren't exactly world beaters this season and Love's injury is likely pretty minor, so it makes sense to use a wait-and-see approach here. In seven previous games as a Cavalier, Frye was putting up averages of 4.0 points, 3.6 boards and 1.0 3-pointers in 12.0 minutes per game.
