Channing Frye hit 3-of-10 shots (3-of-8 from deep) for 10 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks over 24 minutes in Friday's loss to the Hawks.
Frye has provided some late-round value over the last week but as you expand the sample he has been a mess for fantasy owners. Feel free to give him a look but he comes with no guarantees at this point. Feb 28 - 12:11 AM

Channing Frye got hot vs. the Sixers on Sunday, hitting 6-of-10 shots with three 3-pointers to finish with 15 points, three boards and one block in just 21 minutes.

Frye said he's still "getting used to this new offense" under interim coach James Borrego, who seems content starting Frye at PF ahead of Aaron Gordon (10 minutes), Kyle O'Quinn (DNP-CD) or Andrew Nicholson (four minutes). Frye's 3-point shooting gives him instant specialist appeal, and he contributes just enough in other categories to warrant attention in standard leagues.

Channing Frye played 18 minutes in the Magic's 95-84 win over the Pelicans on Friday, finishing with just two points on 1-of-6 shooting, two rebounds and one steal.

Frye's contract is going to look worse and worse as time goes on in Orlando, and one has to wonder why he's even playing these days. That said, if he can turn it around he doesn't need many minutes to be productive in fantasy leagues so be ready to move if that happens.
Feb 21 - 12:41 AM

Channing Frye has been cleared to play after dislocating his finger on Feb. 11 against the Knicks according to head coach James Borrego.

Frye has scored in double digits just once in his last six games, so he has his work cut out for him if he wants to pop up on the fantasy radar again. Unless you are desperate for 3-pointers, Frye isn't worth owning in almost any league.

Channing Frye suffered a dislocated left index finger on Wednesday and will not return.

It doesn't sound like he suffered a fracture to his finger and he'll have some time to recover over the All-Star break. Frye is a righty, so a non-shooting hand injury probably won't cost him significant time. If it does, Kyle O'Quinn would likely take over as the starter. Frye finished with three points and one steal in 10 minutes. He's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Feb 11 - 8:36 PM

Channing Frye played 17 minutes in a start against the Lakers on Friday with seven points, two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

He may continue to start, but Frye is just another case that starting isn't everything. He is going to have to share his minutes with Kyle O'Quinn and Aaron Gordon, so the ceiling isn't too high. Leave him on the wire unless you could use the treys from the power forward spot.
Feb 6 - 10:03 PM

Channing Frye will start against the Lakers on Friday.

He'll join Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo, Tobias Harris and Nikola Vucevic. Frye hasn't been starting due to Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier stepping in for the last days of the Jacque Vaughn era. Coach James Borrego looks like he might tweak the rotation a bit, but it's still hard to have much faith in Frye tonight. We'll let you know how it goes with him and Kyle O'Quinn later.
Feb 6 - 5:43 PM

Channing Frye played just 12 minutes on Monday against the Thunder.

Frye hit 1-of-4 shots for three points, four rebounds and one assist, and owners should simply watch him if/when the Magic axe Jacque Vaughn. He isn't worth owning in 12-team leagues at this time.
Feb 3 - 1:57 AM

Channing Frye attempted one shot in 15 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday.

That's his entire stat line from the box score right there. Frye has been a waste of space on the court in his last few games and he's simply not worth owning in most leagues right now.
Jan 29 - 10:39 PM

Channing Frye will remain in the starting lineup for Thursday's game vs. the Bucks.

Frye was benched during the entire second half of Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies, but head coach Jacque Vaughn will continue to go with him as a starter for the time being. However, Frye has been pretty bad lately hitting just 15-of-37 shots over the past five games. He can be viewed as a 3-point specialist in deep leagues, but guys in standard leagues should be able to find better production on the wire.
Jan 29 - 7:01 PM

Channing Frye was benched for the entire second half against the Grizzlies on Monday due to poor defense.

Zach Randolph looked like he was playing in Rookie mode on a video game with easy bucket after easy bucket. Frye has fallen out of favor with coach Jacque Vaughn and there's a good chance it'll happen again. His fantasy owners can consider dropping him depending who they're going to add instead.
Jan 26 - 10:52 PM

Channing Frye made 3-of-4 shots with two 3-pointers on Wednesday, scoring eight points with one rebound and one steal in 23 minutes vs. the Pistons.

His production predictably tailed off with Tobias Harris back in action -- he averaged 10.2 shots per game while Harris was sidelined, considerably higher than his 7.1 season average. Kyle O'Quinn is also a lurking threat to Frye's value, and 12-team owners shouldn't hesitate to cut him for a player with more rest-of-season upside.
Jan 21 - 10:19 PM

Channing Frye had another quietly effective line in Sunday's home loss, scoring nine points with two 3-pointers, five boards, one assist, three steals and one block.

He turned the ball over once in 35 minutes and has been a major beneficiary of Tobias Harris' absence with a sprained ankle. Kyle O'Quinn (four points, four boards in 16 minutes) has been struggling in a backup role, so it's within reason that Frye will keep rolling even after Harris returns.
Jan 18 - 8:49 PM

Channing Frye continued to heat up with 17 points on 5-of-12 shooting, four threes, eight rebounds, two assists and three blocks over 38 minutes on Friday against the Grizzlies.

Frye has a fantasy friendly game and he should be picked up in all 12-team standard formats now that he's hot again.
Jan 17 - 12:10 AM

Channing Frye broke out of a brutal slump on Wednesday, hitting 5-of-10 shots and five 3-pointers for 15 points, five rebounds, five assists and a steal in 39 minutes.

This was Frye's first double-digit scoring night in six games and his highest point total since Nov. 11. Maybe he's finally ready to start playing again, but he's been so bad it's going to take more than one good game to make us change our mind about him. Keep an eye on him in case this is the start of a hot streak.
