Arron Afflalo attempted only eight shots vs. Denver on Sunday, but he connected on six of them to finish with 15 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and zero turnovers.
This is the third time in a month that Afflalo has attempted single-digit shots, but he scratched out some fantasy value by virtue of his efficiency. It's a fluky outing for the veteran, who is shooting 40.3 percent over the past month, and he should revert to his high-volume ways vs. the up-tempo Wizards on Tuesday. Feb 7 - 4:34 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 24 points on 8-of-15 from the field with three rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes against the Pistons on Thursday.

He had a lot of isolations and post-ups against rookie Stanley Johnson and had his jumper working. Afflalo is one of the most up-and-down players in the NBA and he was over 50 percent from the field for the first time since Jan. 20. He's a low-end hold.
Feb 4 - 11:03 PM

Arron Afflalo hit 7-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 18 points, two rebounds, three assists and a steal in 40 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Celtics.

Afflalo has been pretty hit or miss all season and had just five points in his previous game, but has also become more consistent lately, scoring in double figures in 11 of his last 13 games. He's also hit a 3-pointer in six straight games, and all but three of his January games.
Feb 2 - 10:25 PM

Arron Afflalo, who had just five points on 2-of-12 shooting on Sunday, called his performance "unacceptable."

"I didn’t have it tonight for whatever reason," he said. AA had hit double-digit scoring in four straight games prior to that, but he hasn't shot better than 50 percent from the field since January 20. Afflalo is what he is—an inconsistent scorer who doesn't offer much else across the stat sheet. You could (and should) be aiming higher.

Arron Afflalo hit just 6-of-21 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, five rebounds and two assists in 40 minutes of Tuesday's OT loss to the Thunder.

Afflalo scored 38 points on Jan. 5 and 25 points on Jan. 18, but has been very inconsistent throughout the season. He has scored in double figures in eight of his last nine games though, and is capable of going off on any given night that his shot is falling.
Jan 26 - 11:27 PM

Arron Afflalo scored five points with one rebound, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 30 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

His fantasy value is based primarily on scoring, so he'll have really tough lines when his shot isn't going down. Afflalo is outside of the top 100 in the past two weeks and he'll likely be around 125 going forward.
Jan 22 - 11:58 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 14 points and grabbed a pair of rebounds vs. Utah on Wednesday, making 6-of-11 shots including two 3-pointers.

It's worth noting that Afflalo has performed much better at home this season -- he's averaging 16.5 points on 51.7 percent shooting at MSG, but just 12.3 points on 42.2 percent shooting on the road. His wasn't too involved in the offense tonight but the bigger knock is that, predictably, he failed to record any rebounds, steals or blocks in 43 minutes.
Jan 20 - 11:50 PM

Arron Afflalo caught fire in the fourth quarter on Wednesday, finishing a loss in Brooklyn with 18 points on 8-of-16 shooting, two 3-pointers, three rebounds and two assists.

He didn't turn the ball over in 36 minutes, but also failed to record any defensive stats. Afflalo was coming off a 24-point game on Tuesday and requires a lot of patience to own, as he's been a boom-or-bust option all season long. Hopefully we'll get more of the former vs. the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Jan 13 - 11:40 PM

Arron Afflalo hit 9-of-18 shots and a 3-pointer for 24 points, three rebounds and one assist in Tuesday's win over the Celtics.

Afflalo had really struggled with his shot over his last three games (12-of-34), but got back on track tonight. It would be nice to see him play like this for a few games in a row, as he's struggled for consistency for most of the season.
Jan 12 - 11:57 PM

Arron Afflalo needed 16 shot attempts to score 11 points vs. the Bucks on Sunday, adding one rebound, three assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

The veteran SG missed all five of his 3-point attempts and this typifies the difficulty of owning him -- he needs to score to help your team. He began 2016 with a 38-point bang, but in his past three games Afflalo is averaging a mere 9.3 points on 35.3 percent shooting. Deploy him at your own risk.
Jan 10 - 10:15 PM

Arron Afflalo couldn't get his shot to drop on Friday, scoring just eight points on 3-of-8 shooting to go with four boards, four assists, two 3-pointers and one block.

Afflalo's minutes are safe, but because he doesn't do much defensively (0.3 steals and 0.1 blocks per game) he's nothing more than a late-round guy in standard leagues.
Jan 9 - 1:29 AM

Arron Afflalo scored only nine points on 4-of-10 shooting during Wednesday's road loss, adding two rebounds, one steal and two turnovers in 40 minutes.

Afflalo averaged 30.5 points in his previous two games, both against the Hawks, but he struggled against a Heat team that's allowing a mere 94.6 points per game. Opponents are also shooting 33.0 percent from beyond the arc vs. Miami, seventh-lowest in the league, so this was partially a matchup-based result.
Jan 6 - 10:15 PM

Arron Afflalo stayed hot on Tuesday, hitting 9-of-16 shots and 2-of-2 3-pointers for 23 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a steal in 37 minutes.

He played 29 minutes and scored 38 with seven 3-pointers on Sunday, and is officially hot. Maybe he'll keep it going, and it's no secret that he's one of the Knicks' best offensive weapons when his shot is falling.
Jan 5 - 11:44 PM

Arron Afflalo blew up for a season-high 38 points vs. the Hawks on Sunday, sinking 14-of-17 field goals (7-of-8 from deep) with two rebounds, two assists and one block in just 29 minutes.

The 3-pointers were also a season-high for Afflalo, who snapped out of a three-game funk during which he averaged 5.7 points on combined 8-of-28 shooting. The veteran needs to score effectively to produce fantasy value, as attested to by his season averages of 3.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.2 steals and 0.1 blocks. He's only worth a look if you're hard up for scoring.
Jan 3 - 9:53 PM

Arron Afflalo scored just four points during a 108-81 loss to the Bulls on Friday, adding one rebound and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

He was a ridiculous minus-34 in plus/minus tonight. His past three games have been awful and it's dropped him to 14th-round value in standard leagues. If there is a hot pickup like Bobby Portis, dropping Afflalo makes a lot of sense.
