Channing Frye started Wednesday's game in place of Kevin Love (illness), finishing with 15 points, five boards, three 3-pointers, one steal and zero turnovers in 30 minutes.
Frye has one primary role for the Cavs, and that is to stretch the court offensively. He's taking just 7.3 shots per game but 64.7 percent of those attempts come from downtown, which is the 11th-highest ratio in the league. That about sums up his fantasy appeal. Jan 4 - 10:55 PM

Channing Frye will start for Kevin Love (illness) against the Bulls on Wednesday despite playing through an illness.

The Cavs are really sick right now, but they really need Frye to go out there and soak up the power forward minutes left by Kevin Love (illness). With Tristan Thompson set to play all of his minutes at center like always, Frye should get all the playing time he can handle. He'll be risky, but he's worth a look tonight.
Jan 4 - 6:32 PM

Channing Frye scored 14 points with six rebounds, two blocks and four triples against the Pelicans on Monday.

He played 25 minutes in the win, shooting 5-of-9 from the field and 0-of-2 from the line. Kevin Love left the game in the fourth quarter and never returned, and we learned after the game that he's dealing with food poisoning. If Love is unable to play on Wednesday vs. the Bulls, Frye will be streaming option for any owner in need of triples -- Frye was averaging 2.1 triples in 18.1 minutes per game prior to Monday.
Jan 2 - 9:54 PM

Channing Frye hit 4-of-8 shots and three 3-pointers for 11 points and four rebounds in Monday's loss.

He's averaging 11.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 3-pointers on 51 percent shooting over his last five games, but also hasn't had a steal or block in any of them. He belongs on waivers unless you're desperate for threes in a deep league.

Channing Frye came off the bench for 15 points, three rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's overtime win over the Bucks.

This was Frye's best game in over a month and he hadn't scored more than eight points in his previous four games played. Kevin Love was out with a knee injury, and is iffy for Wednesday, while Frye might finally be getting over the personal issues he's been dealing with over the last several weeks. Just keep an eye on him in case this is the start of a hot streak for Frye.

Channing Frye struggled as a fill-in starter on Wednesday, going scoreless with three rebounds, one steal and no other stats in 23 minutes.

Tyronn Lue previously stated that he would start James Jones (15 points in 25 minutes), but he changed his mind prior to tip-off tonight. Frye operates best when he's getting wide open looks against centers who aren't comfortable defending the perimeter, so his PF role tonight wasn't ideal. He'll return to his usual bench role on Saturday.

Channing Frye will start on Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

Well, this was a wild hour, but it'll be Frye in the starting lineup. Theoretically, he could get plenty of shots tonight, but maybe he gets rested like everyone else. Use him at your own peril.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 07:05:00 PM

Channing Frye scored eight points on 2-of-6 shooting in his return to action on Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies, adding one rebound, one assist and one triple in 15 minutes.

He was away from the team for the past two games for personal reasons, but they were excused. With Kevin Love resting on Wednesday vs. Memphis in addition to Kyrie Irving and LeBron James, Frye could be a sneaky option in DFS even though James Jones is getting the start at PF.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 10:12:00 PM

Channing Frye has been excused from the team for personal reasons and will miss Friday's game vs. the Heat and Saturday's game vs. the Hornets.

Frye has had to endure an extremely difficult couple of months, as he lost both his mother and father. Kevin Love (back spasms) was surprisingly listed as listed as questionable for Friday night. If Love can't play, the Cavs will be extremely shorthanded at power forward. As a result, Tristan Thompson would likely play more minutes than usual. Richard Jefferson, Mike Dunleavy and possibly Chris Anderson could all see extended action as well.

Channing Frye was back from a personal leave on Thursday but missed both his shots and finished with five points and five rebounds in 15 minutes.

He missed three straight games after the death of his father, but not even garbage time in a blowout could save him tonight. Frye was playing pretty well before his absence, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues if you need a big man who can hit 3-pointers.

Channing Frye (personal) will play against the Clippers on Thursday.

Frye had been on bereavement leave after the death of his father, but has returned to the team and will be active on Thursday. While the 33-year-old is capable of a big game now and then, his only fantasy value comes as a three-point specialist.
Thu, Dec 1, 2016 11:43:00 AM

Channing Frye will not play Tuesday at Milwaukee but will return Thursday when the Cavs host the Clippers.

Frye's father passed away on Thanksgiving and he has been away from the team since. Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson will likely see additional playing time on Tuesday night, before Frye returns on Thursday and reclaims his 18-plus minutes.
Tue, Nov 29, 2016 06:41:00 PM

It is possible that Channing Frye will arrive in Milwaukee in time to play on Tuesday.

Frye has been with his family since his father passed away last week. Ty Lue said Tuesday morning that he was unsure if Frye would be able to play on Tuesday. Check back for an update.
Tue, Nov 29, 2016 11:17:00 AM

Channing Frye (personal) is listed as out for Sunday's game vs. the Pistons.

Sadly, Frye lost both his father and mother over the course of a month. Kevin Love will look to continue his terrific play on Sunday and should see extended minutes. Tristan Thompson, Richard Jefferson and Mike Dunleavy might also see increased opportunities.
Sat, Nov 26, 2016 02:19:00 PM

Channing Frye (personal) is not with the team and will not play Friday night vs. the Mavericks.

Frye's father passed away on Thanksgiving, and Frye has left the team to be with his family. It has been a heartbreaking couple of months for Frye, who lost his mother in October. Frye is averaging 18 minutes per contest this season. Tristan Thompson, Richard Jefferson and Mike Dunleavy could all see a slight uptick in playing time while Frye is away from the team. Kevin Love, fresh off his terrific game Wednesday, will also likely see increased opportunities.
