Channing Frye followed up Tuesday's terrific performance with just four points on 1-of-8 shooting vs. the Pacers on Wednesday, adding eight rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes.
Frye was coming off multiple season-highs of 21 points and 10 rebounds, but he finished tonight's game 0-of-6 from downtown and suffered some minor cramps late in the game. He'll continue to play a big role with Kevin Love out approximately six weeks due to knee surgery, and is worth a look as a 3-point specialist who can chip in points and boards with occasional defensive stats.

Channing Frye started for Kevin Love (knee surgery) and hit 7-of-15 shots and four 3-pointers for 21 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks in 33 minutes of Tuesday's 116-108 win over the Timberwolves.

Hello, Mr. Frye. He's going to get a ton of minutes at power forward with Love out for the next six weeks and looked very good shooting it from long range tonight. With the new opportunity he's going to get, Frye deserves to be picked up in almost all leagues, although we don't expect him to play quite this well every night. But if you have someone you don't mind cutting, taking a flier on Frye makes a ton of sense right now. Go get him.
Feb 14 - 10:47 PM

Channing Frye will start in place of Kevin Love (knee) on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.

Love may not play on Wednesday vs. the Pacers as well, so Frye is on the radar as a short-term pickup. In three previous starts this season, Frye has averaged 11.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 0.7 blocks and 2.0 3-pointers.
Feb 13 - 1:22 PM

Channing Frye scored 14 points with three rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 16 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

Kevin Love (back) looked fantastic in this game, so Frye will go back to being irrelevant in fantasy leagues. To his credit, he was very good on Wednesday with 17 points and he was hot in this game with a team-high +14 in plus/minus.
Feb 4 - 11:34 PM

Channing Frye will come off the bench on Saturday vs. the Knicks.

He scored 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, two blocks and one steal on Wednesday as a fill-in starter with Kevin Love (back) out, but Love will be returning from a two-game absence tonight. As a reserve this season, Frye is averaging 9.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.9 triples in 18.1 minutes per game.
Feb 4 - 8:07 PM

Channing Frye looked great as a fill-in starter for Kevin Love (back) on Wednesday, playing 22 minutes to finish with 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting, three 3-pointers, four rebounds, two blocks and one steal.

Frye's starting gig may be very short-lived, however, since Love's recent MRI was negative. He's seventh in the league for 3-point percentage (42.5 percent), but barring a more long-term injury to Love or Tristan Thompson, he's nothing more than a perimeter specialist.
Feb 1 - 10:32 PM

Channing Frye will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

Kevin Love (back spasms) is out, so Frye should see his minutes rise to the mid-20s at the very least. In two starts this season, Frye has compiled averages of 7.5 points, 4.0 boards and 1.5 triples per game on 40.0 percent shooting, so he's more of a deep league streamer for those looking to close the gap in the 3-point category rather than a DFS target.
Feb 1 - 12:30 PM

Channing Frye played 19 minutes and hit 4-of-8 shots and 3-of-6 3-pointers for 13 points, seven rebounds and two blocks in Monday's ugly loss to the Mavericks.

Frye figured to get a boost with Kevin Love sidelined with a back injury, but basically saw the same minutes he normally does, although his production was nice. Richard Jefferson started in place of Love tonight, but isn't really a fantasy option, despite his 11 points and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes. Frye makes more sense than RJ on paper, but given tonight's low minutes, there isn't really a reserve player on the Cavs we'd rely on if Love misses more games going forward.
Jan 31 - 12:25 AM

Channing Frye was terrific off the bench against the Suns on Thursday, scoring 18 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

It was a season high in boards and his first double-double on the year. On top of Kevin Love (back) not playing, Frye also saw some heavy run with Tristan Thompson (finger) missing some time during this game. Both Love and Thompson are likely just dealing with minor ailments, so there's little reason to add Frye unless you're dropping something you won't miss at all.
Jan 19 - 9:58 PM

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.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 11:04:00 PM

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.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 12:24:00 AM

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.
