Channing Frye finished with five points and a rebound in eight minutes off the bench Saturday against the Magic.
Frye didn't get a lot of run against his former team, but he made 2-of-3 from the field and connected on his only 3-pointer try of the evening. He isn't likely to see much of the floor as long as everyone stays healthy in Cleveland, and Tristan Thompson shifting to the backup center spot did Frye no favors. Oct 22 - 12:02 AM

Channing Frye scored six points with 10 rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 23 minutes on Friday.

He got the start with Kevin Love (general tightness) not playing today. Frye is not going to see much playing time as the Cavs will be shifting Tristan Thompson to the backup five spot, so minutes up front will be hard to come by.

The Cavs are reportedly shopping Channing Frye.

Frye reportedly helped bring the Cavs locker room together, but his on-court impact with Cleveland during the Finals was minimal. Cleveland likely won't get much of a return for Frye alone, but he could be included as a throw-in piece in a larger deal.

Channing Frye went 5-of-7 from deep en route to 18 points on Wednesday, as the Cavaliers cruised to a 2-0 lead in their second-round series vs. Toronto.

Frye benefited from non-existent defense from Jonas Valanciunas early, finishing 6-of-9 from the field overall with five rebounds and one assist in just 18 minutes. The Cavaliers scored a playoff franchise-high 125 points tonight -- they got 39 points from LeBron James, with solid contributions from Kyrie Irving (22 points) and Iman Shumpert (14 points).
May 3 - 10:02 PM

Channing Frye started in place of Kevin Love (rest) on Wednesday and posted five points, one rebound and one 3-pointer in seven minutes.

The Cavs were erring on the side of caution tonight despite their neck-and-neck chase of the No. 1 seed with Boston. Even Frye was rested after halftime, which explains his limited minutes despite Love's absence.
Apr 12 - 9:25 PM

Channing Frye scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting Sunday, to go with eight rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal and two blocks through 24 minutes as a starter.

Over the past three games as a starter, Frye has compiled averages of 12.7 points, 7.0 boards, 2.0 triples, 1.0 steal and 1.3 blocks on 56.0 percent shooting. If Tristan Thompson (thumb) is again forced to the sidelines for Monday’s game in Miami, Frye will be someone to consider as a 3-point streamer or low-budget DFS option.
Apr 9 - 7:03 PM

Channing Frye will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Hawks.

This is a pretty good indication that Tristan Thompson (thumb) will miss his third game in a row tonight, and we should have official confirmation on that soon enough. Frye posted 16 points, five boards, two blocks and two triples in a start against the Hawks on Friday, so he could be someone to look at as a potential 3-point streamer.
Apr 9 - 2:17 PM

Channing Frye scored 16 points with five rebounds, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

With Tristan Thompson up in the air for the next handful of games, Frye could get some additional run. If we do get word that Thompson is indeed out, then give Frye a look as a 3-pointers specialist.
Apr 7 - 9:48 PM

Channing Frye started for Tristan Thompson (thumb) against the Celtics on Wednesday, scoring 10 points with eight rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 17 minutes.

He did not play in the final 17 minutes and that was likely due to the Cavs being up big late. With Tristan Thompson set to miss at least one more game, Frye should be looking at minutes in the 20s against the Hawks on Friday. He can be viewed as a low-end option for that one, but his upside is limited as long as the big three is active.
Apr 5 - 10:59 PM

Channing Frye will get the start for Wednesday's game against the Celtics with Tristan Thompson (thumb) unavailable.

Through 10 starts this season, Frye owns averages of 10.7 points, 4.8 boards and 2.1 triples per contest on 40.2 percent shooting, so he could be someone to look at as a potential deep league 3-point streamer. Derrick Williams should also be a more significant part of the rotation tonight with Thompson out, and Larry Sanders might be able to log more than two minutes off the bench.

Channing Frye scored five points with seven rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

He did pick up some extra minutes today because of Kevin Love being in foul trouble while he should also play more if Richard Jefferson (knee) needs to miss time. Frye still won't have enough value to trust while the Cavs are somewhat healthy.
Mar 30 - 10:50 PM

Channing Frye played 13 minutes off the bench on Sunday, scoring three points with one rebound and two turnovers.

Frye started Saturday's game but that was only because Kevin Love was resting, so there shouldn't have been any real expectations here. He's a low-end 3-point specialist while the Cavs are near full strength.
Mar 20 - 12:37 AM

Channing Frye moved into the starting lineup on Saturday vs. the Clippers and scored 10 points with four rebounds, one assist and two triples in 28 minutes.

He probably would've played a bit more, but this game was over in a hurry. Strangely enough, every starter for the Cavaliers scored between 10-11 points. Kevin Love (rest) is expected back on Sunday vs. the Lakers, so feel free to leave Frye on the wire.
Mar 18 - 11:08 PM

Channing Frye will start vs. the Clippers on Saturday.

Kevin Love is resting, but he should be back for Sunday against the Lakers. With Kyrie Irving and LeBron James also resting, Frye should be a solid punt option in DFS and is worth streaming in season-long leagues if you're targeting 3-pointers. In nine starts this season, Frye has averaged 10.8 points, 4.9 rebounds, 0.8 blocks and 2.1 triples.
Mar 18 - 7:18 PM

Channing Frye came off the bench and hit 5-of-7 shots (all 3-pointers) for 15 points, nine rebounds and a steal in 22 minutes of Thursday's loss to the Pistons.

Frye runs hot-and-cold and scored just five points in his previous game, which saw him play just 14 minutes. When he gets 20-plus minutes things tend to run more smoothly and he's hit double digits in scoring in three of his last four games, and he played at least 22 minutes in each of the good ones. He's worth keeping an eye on as long as Kevin Love is out, but if he's not starting for the Cavs, you probably don't want him starting for your fantasy team, either.
