Arron Afflalo scored 31 points in Sunday's loss to the Spurs, adding five boards, one assist and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.
He was dynamic all game long and was able to shoot 12-of-20 from the field, including 4-of-6 from 3-point range. He has seen his minutes rise in recent games and will be worth owning in all leagues unless he sees his role change. Keep him active in all lineups for solid contributions in points and 3-pointers.

Arron Afflalo made four 3-pointers on his way to 25 points in 44 minutes against the Raptors on Monday with six rebounds, two assists and three turnovers.

The Nuggets are using him more at the three lately and it's led to more minutes. If not for garbage time, he probably would be in the upper 30s and he should be able to score in the high teens until Kenneth Faried (back) gets back.
Dec 8 - 11:26 PM

Arron Afflalo has been fined $15,000 by the league for his flagrant 2 foul against Alec Burks.

The fine is for "making excessive contact above the shoulders," but Afflalo will not face a suspension. He's averaging 14.5 points and 1.7 three-pointers this season while shooting 45.8 percent from the field and 85.7 percent from the charity stripe. He doesn't do much aside from score, but he's a solid source of 3-pointers and points in standard leagues.
Dec 2 - 4:29 PM

Arron Afflalo said the flagrant 2 foul against Alec Burks in Monday's win over the Jazz was just the result of an attempted block.

Afflalo's attempted block resulted in a hard foul on Burks that caused the Jazz guard to hit the ground hard and the flagrant 2 call led to Afflalo being ejected from the game. "I was trying to go for a block, pretty much," Afflalo said. "I’m not trying to be a tough guy, not trying to commit a hard foul. Things that ensue after that is all verbal in front of the refs and a lot of people. To me that means nothing. Honestly I just thought I committed a hard foul and he finished the game so he was OK." We'll have to await word from the league, but there's a good chance Afflalo could be facing a fine for the flagrant.

Arron Afflalo was charged with a flagrant 2 foul in the fourth quarter of Monday's game and has been ejected.

He hammered Alec Burks in the face on a transition layup and it caused Burks to take a bad fall. Afflalo didn't mean it because Burks gave him a fake mid-air, but it was the right call to toss him. He finished with 14 points, one rebound, one assist and two 3-pointers. We'd be very surprised to see him be suspended.
Dec 1 - 11:11 PM

Arron Afflalo kept his foot on the gas with 22 points in Friday's blowout win over the Suns, hitting 5-of-9 shots (1-of-1 from deep, 11-of-13 from the line) with four rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes.

Afflalo did not record a steal or block and that's one of the factors limiting his upside, but if he can be the Nuggets' primary scorer then he'll hold late-round value with unlikely mid-round upside.
Nov 29 - 3:44 AM

Arron Afflalo logged 42 minutes on Sunday but made only 5-of-17 shots to finish with 15 points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal.

He made one 3-pointer and hit 4-of-4 free throws down the stretch, which helped take the sting out of his lousy shooting performance. As usual, Afflalo is a solid source of points (17.6) and triples (2.4), while failing to contribute many rebounds (3.4), assists (1.8), steals (0.4) or blocks (0.2). Despite the gaps in his fantasy game, he's returning top-120 value while playing heavy minutes in the Nuggets' chaotic rotation.
Nov 24 - 12:43 AM

Arron Afflalo scored a season-high 23 points in Monday's win over the Cavs, hitting 8-of-17 shots (including four threes) with four rebounds, three assists and a block in 40 minutes.

Afflalo has been able to turn the corner on a harsh start but with the way things are going in Denver -- even after a win over the Cavs on the road -- we're not betting the house on any mid-round upside. A low upside player to begin with in standard formats, he should be owned in all formats while he's hot, nevertheless. Ty Lawson went for 24 and 12 in the win.
Nov 17 - 10:09 PM

Arron Afflalo is averaging 17.5 points over his last two games.

It's a small sample, but Afflalo is shooting 59 percent from the field and 57.1 percent from behind the 3-point line. AA credits a "mental adjustment" for the difference in his game, and that may have been sparked by Brian Shaw benching him in a recent contest. He shouldn't be on the waiver wire.

Arron Afflalo had another nice outing on Sunday, scoring 18 points to go with four rebounds, three assists, and five 3-pointers over 32 minutes of action.

Afflalo has gotten some increased opportunity with Randy Foye (knee) unavailable to question him for minutes, but he really doesn't do much aside from score. He's not going to have the same season in Denver that he had in Orlando last year, but his ability to put up points and hit 3-pointers in bunches makes him worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 16 - 4:56 PM

Arron Afflalo was effective against the Pacers on Friday with 17 points, one rebound, two assists and three 3-pointers on 7-of-11 from the field.

He was benched for the entire second half on Wednesday and stepped up with Randy Foye (knee) out tonight. Afflalo isn't going to do much outside of scoring, but the treys should make him worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 14 - 10:46 PM

Arron Afflalo played just 10 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with four points and no 3-pointers on 1-of-4 shooting.

There are no reports of an injury, but Randy Foye, Alonzo Gee and Nate Robinson got his minutes tonight. Afflalo scored 18 points on Sunday, but clearly was in Shaw's doghouse tonight. It looks like Shaw may have already lost this team, and there will surely be some closed-door meetings as they try to get this figured out. For now, bench anyone not named Ty Lawson when you set your lineup.
Nov 13 - 1:14 AM

Arron Afflalo is finding his role in the Nuggets offense.

Afflalo met with Nuggets coaches and asked for how he could get a better hold on his role in the offense prior to scoring 18 points on Sunday, so it appears something may have clicked. Ty Lawson (ankle) being in the lineup undoubtedly helps Afflalo as well, so hopefully Lawson can stay healthy and on the floor.

Nov 10 - 12:44 PM

Arron Afflalo recovered from Friday's scoreless game to chip in a season-high 18 points on 8-of-14 shooting in a loss to the Blazers on Sunday.

Afflalo added one 3-pointer and four rebounds tonight, but the usual knock against his fantasy game applies -- he had zero assists, steals or blocks in 26 minutes of action. With his scoring down (9.4 points per game) and more competition for minutes and shots than he faced last year in Orlando, it's hard to be optimistic about Afflalo's season outlook.
Nov 9 - 11:55 PM

Arron Afflalo went scoreless over 31 minutes of action in Friday's uneventful loss to the Cavs.

Afflalo missed the four shots he took and added just five rebounds and a steal on the night. Aside from the fact that something is rotten in Denver, Afflalo looks slow right now and nobody is doing anything worthwhile that might get him the ball in a position to score. With a crowded rotation if you need to pull the trigger on this low-upside player we won't hate on you.
