Channing Frye, who has a $6.8 million player option next season, would like to negotiate a contract extension with the Suns.
"I'd love to stay here. It's up to them and their future and what they want to do," Frye said. "I love wearing this uniform. I think I take a little more pride in it than everyone else because I'm from here." He's averaged 11.2 points and 5.1 rebounds while starting all 82 games for Phoenix (he's expected to start Wednesday), an amazing feat after missing the 2012-13 season due to an enlarged heart.

Channing Frye hit 7-of-13 shots and five 3-pointers for 21 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in Saturday's loss to the Mavericks.

Frye has been in a serious slump for the Suns, but got hot early and was able to keep it going. The Suns are still battling Memphis for the last playoff spot available, so Frye will continue to play. But the fact remains that tonight's game might have been more of a fluke than anything else, given his poor play over the last several weeks.
Apr 12 - 11:47 PM

Channing Frye scored two points on 1-of-6 shooting with four rebounds and no steals or blocks in Friday's win.

Frye played just 19 minutes and though his overall value has not fallen off a cliff because of a fantasy friendly game, the recent results have made him droppable.
Apr 5 - 1:31 AM

Channing Frye made 1-of-7 field goals for two points in Sunday's lopsided loss, adding six rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes of action.

He went without a 3-pointer for the second straight game, and the normally deadly outside shooter is just 32.7 percent from deep since the All-Star break. Nevertheless, Frye's valuable combination of 3-pointers, steals (0.8) and blocks (0.8) has buoyed his mid-round value in nine-cat leagues this season.
Mar 31 - 12:23 AM

Channing Frye scored 18 points vs. the Hawks on Monday with seven boards, one block and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

He did not play more than 23 minutes in any of his previous four games and his playing time has dwindled a bit with guys like Markieff Morris really stepping up. Frye's 18 points were also his best total since Feb. 4 and he also entered tonight with March averages of 8.9 points, 4.5 boards and 1.2 triples. He's not quite worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 24 - 10:48 PM

Channing Frye played a season-low 15 minutes as the Suns relied on small lineups in a comeback win vs. the Wolves on Sunday.

The Suns erased a double-digit deficit with Marcus Morris playing center, which gives some idea of coach Jeff Hornacek's unorthodox but effective lineups. The end result was a 127-120 victory for Phoenix but Frye should resume playing 20-30 minutes against Pero Antic and the Hawks on Monday.
Mar 23 - 6:29 PM

Channing Frye hit just 1-of-6 shots for two points in Friday's win, but did manage two steals and a block to go with his four rebounds over 23 minutes.

It hasn't been pretty for Frye lately but his fantasy-friendly game has still managed to return late-round value through it all. Depending on your needs and who is available on the wire you may opt for a hotter player, but Frye is operating at his floor and the Suns will need every ounce of effort he can bring as they hunt a playoff spot. They also play four games next week.
Mar 22 - 2:53 AM

Channing Frye scored 17 points on 5-of-14 shooting (including four threes) with six rebounds and one steal in the Suns' 110-101 loss to the Cavs on Wednesday.

Frye cooled off in a big way but he never really lost all of his value so hopefully folks were able to hold on. If he's available your team would need to be stacked in a standard format not to make the pickup. He's a top 65-85 play when he's on the floor this season and though we can't guarantee he's out of his slump those metrics are too good to pass up, even with Eric Bledsoe back and P.J. Tucker returning from his suspension.
Mar 13 - 1:32 AM

Channing Frye started again on Tuesday, but hit just 2-of-6 shots for four points, three rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes.

He also had a block, but the sudden rise of Markieff Morris is clearly hurting Frye right now. Morris had 24 points tonight, and has scored between 21 and 24 points in three straight games, while Frye had scored a total of 10 points over his last two games. Frye will likely get hot again at some point, but with Morris coming on so strong, is no longer a must-start player.
Feb 26 - 12:44 AM

Channing Frye hit 4-of-7 shots and four 3-pointers for 15 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a block and four 3-pointers in Wednesday's win.

Frye tends to ebb and flow for the Suns, but has scored in double figures in four straight games, averaging 13.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.75 3-pointers over that stretch. Markieff Morris is an appealing fantasy add right now, but Frye looks like a more consistent player.
Feb 20 - 1:00 AM

Channing Frye hit just 6-of-16 shots and 2-of-11 3-pointers, but still finished with 18 points, eight rebounds, a steal and two blocks in Tuesday's loss to the Bulls.

Frye has been a bit hit-or-miss lately with the emergence of Markieff Morris, but looked pretty good tonight despite the desperation from downtown. Morris had 12 points, but also struggled, hitting just 4-of-13 shots. Frye missed Monday's practice for personal reasons, but was back in the starting lineup tonight.
Feb 5 - 12:40 AM

Channing Frye (personal) is not with the team and missed practice on Monday.

He is believed to be available for Tuesday's home game against the Bulls. Frye is from Arizona, but not much else is known about what family issue he's dealing with. His numbers have come down since coach Jeff Hornacek has gained trust in Markieff Morris, but Frye is still worth owning in some formats for his 3-pointers.
Feb 3 - 4:11 PM

Channing Frye played only 28 minutes in Sunday's victory, but he scored a season-high 30 points courtesy of 12-of-16 shooting with five 3-pointers.

He added five rebounds, one steal, three blocks and just one turnover. Frye ranks fifth in the NBA for catch-and-shoot scoring, at 7.5 points per game, which is even more impressive considering he's averaging just 28 minutes. He's been a top-50 option in nine-cat leagues and retains solid mid-round value when turnovers are excluded.
Jan 19 - 11:13 PM

Channing Frye scored 20 points on 9-of-20 shooting (including a three) with eight rebounds, two steals and one block in Wednesday's win over the Lakers.

Frye goes hot and cold but in the end he should be in most fantasy lineups.
Jan 16 - 1:51 AM

Channing Frye scored 21 points during Saturday's 110-108 loss to the Pistons with three boards, one assist, two steals and five 3-pointers on 7-of-14 shooting.

He has three 20-point games in his last five and has been as hot as a deep fryer from distance. Over that five-game span, Frye averaged 17.2 points, 5.2 boards, 1.0 blocks and 3.8 triples on 45 percent shooting from the field. He's worth owning in standard leagues despite his inability to defend in the low post.
