Channing Frye scored seven points with six rebounds and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the Spurs on Monday.
He's reportedly on the trade block, which would be music to the ears of Aaron Gordon fans. By the way, those two played just 3.2 minutes together tonight on the heels of Frye's DNP-CD on Sunday. Frye can be left on the wire in most leagues. Feb 2 - 12:41 AM

The Magic have received "multiple inquiries" on a potential Channing Frye trade, sources told The Sporting News.

We're inclined to meet this report with a bit of skepticism. Given the source, Frye's age (32) the amount of time and money (2 years, $15.2M) left on his deal as well as the obvious non-fit on Orlando's roster, there shouldn't be any team beating down the Magic's door in order to facilitate a trade. We'll see how it shakes out, but Frye is now comfortably buried behind starter Aaron Gordon, not a part of the rotation and belongs on the waiver wire in your league.

Channing Frye picked up a DNP-CD vs. the Celtics on Sunday.

Frye had appeared in every game since Nov. 7 but he dropped out of the rotation with Aaron Gordon and Jason Smith playing well at the PF spot. It doesn't bode well for Frye that his DNP-CD coincided with Orlando's first win in nine games.
Jan 31 - 9:57 PM

Channing Frye scored five points off the bench against the Hornets on Friday with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

He would've played a lot less if not for Aaron Gordon getting into foul trouble. Frye isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 22 - 9:57 PM

Channing Frye will move to the bench on Friday against the Hornets.

He could play very little and it wouldn't be a shock to see him get out of the rotation again. Frye is not worth owning in most leagues right now.
Jan 22 - 5:26 PM

Scott Skiles said that he'll "more than likely" make a change to the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

Skiles has made these declarations before, and nothing ever seems to come of it, so we're skeptical of this quote. Skiles also wouldn't say whom he's considering sending to the bench, but from a statistical standpoint, Channing Frye should not be running with the starters. If Frye heads to the bench on Friday, Aaron Gordon or Mario Hezonja would have the opportunity to start, and we'll be monitoring this situation closely leading up to Friday's tip. Stay tuned.
Jan 21 - 3:12 PM

The Magic will start Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier, Tobias Harris, Channing Frye and Nikola Vucevic on Wednesday against the 76ers.

So much for a change. The Magic starters have been destroyed in the first quarter all month with Channing Frye, Elfrid Payton and Evan Fournier posting the lowest net ratings in that span. Meanwhile, Aaron Gordon has been in all of the top three lineup combinations with more than 12 minutes played in January. Channing Frye covering an Ish Smith and Nerlens Noel pick-and-roll should be a riot. Gordon is still a stash and Frye is not.
Jan 20 - 5:17 PM

Channing Frye blocked a season-high four shots against the Raptors on Thursday, adding two points, six rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes.

He had a combined four blocks in December and four in November. Before this one, he was losing minutes to Aaron Gordon, but tonight it was Jason Smith logging most of the second half minutes at power forward. Frye played just 17.0 minutes per game before this outing and only has one game with more than four points in that span. He's only a deep-league guy.
Jan 14 - 7:12 PM

Channing Frye scored two points with two rebounds and two blocks in 14 minutes against the Pistons on Monday.

The milk might be going bad for Frye and the low playing time isn't really garbage time related because he played just six minutes in the first half. He looked awful in the first quarter and teams may have figured out how to exploit Frye now. He has very little fantasy value.
Jan 5 - 1:14 AM

Channing Frye tweaked his right ankle on Friday against the Wizards and did return, finishing with four points, six rebounds, two assists and no turnovers.

He didn't play down the stretch tonight, but might not have been due to injury because the Magic were killed on pick-and-roll against the Wizards. Frye has actually been playing well and putting up fantasy value, but he's still not a pickup.
Jan 1 - 9:18 PM

Channing Frye played 26 minutes against the Heat on Saturday with 10 points, four rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers.

Despite not playing well, Frye's minutes are up. In his previous five, he played 23.9 minutes per game with averages of 9.8 points, 3.0 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.0 treys on 66.7 percent from the field. He's still not playing enough to grab in most leagues, but he's on the radar in deep leagues now that coach Scott Skiles loves him.

Channing Frye chipped in across the board on Sunday, scoring 13 points to go along with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 27 minutes.

The veteran continues to start ahead of Andrew Nicholson and Aaron Gordon, but he's not even cracking the top-150 over the past two weeks. Don't let tonight's line sway you -- he belongs on the waiver wire.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 09:21:00 PM

Channing Frye scored two points in 23 minutes against the Blazers on Friday with four rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

He keeps getting minutes and is one of the worst starters in the NBA. The Magic starting five actually has better net rating numbers than they did before the big lineup switch on Nov. 25, so Frye probably staying there. He has very low value.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 10:57:00 PM

Channing Frye made 5-of-7 shots from downtown to finish Wednesday's game with a team-high 17 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 30 minutes.

Scott Skiles was reportedly considering another change to his starting lineup, with Frye a likely suspect to be benched, but that never came to fruition. The threat of a demotion may have lit a fire under the veteran, who is averaging 14.0 points and 4.0 triples in his past two games, but he's strictly a 3-point specialist.
Wed, Dec 16, 2015 10:13:00 PM

Channing Frye scored 11 points in a start against the Nets on Monday with four rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

He was overdue for a good game and his five dimes crushed his previous season high of just two -- he only had 10 assists the entire season. Frye looks like he'll be sticking in the starting lineup, but doesn't have much value in most leagues.
