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.

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.
Mar 9 - 10:23 PM

Channing Frye scored 21 points on the shorthanded Cavs roster on Saturday, adding four rebounds, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

He had the highest usage rate on the squad and made his shots count. Frye has been a fairly big letdown since Kevin Love went down and had barely turned in top-175 value since Love's injury prior to this game. He's only worth owning in deeper leagues. and obviously this is a fluke with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving resting.
Mar 4 - 10:26 PM

Channing Frye will come of the bench against the Heat on Saturday.

Someone has to score in the second unit, so it'll be Frye in that role. Although, it's tough to use a 33-year-old big man coming off the bench when players are resting, so he'll be a risky DFS play today.
Mar 4 - 6:45 PM

The Cavaliers opened their three-game road trip with a tough loss in Boston, in which Channing Frye contributed a mere three points and two rebounds in 13 minutes.

There were conflicting reports about Cleveland's starting five tonight, but Frye wound up getting the nod over Richard Jefferson. He was really bad tonight, however, going 1-of-4 from the field while doing little else to help his team, so coach Ty Lue opted for more from Derrick Williams (31 minutes). Frye will be better most nights as a 3-point specialist.

Channing Frye started on Wednesday night against the Celtics.

The conflicting reports are never fun and it was Frye out there for this one. Richard Jefferson is coming off the bench.
Mar 1 - 8:11 PM

Channing Frye will start Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics.

There were conflicting reports before the game, but in the end it's Frye getting the nod. He came off the bench against Milwaukee on Monday, but that was a one-game switch for matchup purposes. The veteran continues to be a reliable 3-point shooter who won't hurt you anywhere, giving him late-round appeal with Kevin Love on the shelf.
Mar 1 - 7:41 PM

Channing Frye will come off the bench for Monday's game against Milwaukee.

Richard Jefferson will be moving into the starting five to better matchup with the small-ball Bucks, but this will likely just be a one-game thing. Frye should still see quality minutes off the bench, and he's worth deploying if you're in need of some 3-point shooting.
Feb 27 - 5:49 PM

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.
Feb 15 - 10:35 PM

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.
