Arron Afflalo started on Monday and hit just 1-of-6 shots for three points, one rebound and one assist.
He has scored eight or fewer points in six of his last seven games and simply isn't getting it done. The Kings would likely have a few more wins if they could find a reliable shooting guard, but that's been an issue for them ever since Ben McLemore arrived on the scene. McLemore didn't even play tonight, while Omri Casspi, Garrett Temple and Matt Barnes were also highly ineffective. Nov 28 - 11:28 PM

Arron Afflalo and Kosta Koufos will start again on Monday vs. the Wizards.

Coach Dave Joerger may shuffle his lineups quite often, but the only three players that should always be penciled into the first unit are Darren Collison, Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins. Afflalo and Koufos are deep-league fantasy assets at best.

Arron Afflalo said it doesn't matter to him if he starts or comes off the bench.

"You can’t fault a coach for trying to win and trying to find guys that work together," Afflalo said. "But for me personally, I take pride in being a versatile basketball player, so sometimes coaches can see the benefit of me coming off the bench, and sometimes I’m a necessary stability piece in the starting lineup. It just depends." His role is going to fluctuate from game to game, and his season averages of 8.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.7 treys aren't helping fantasy owners. Leave him on the wire.

Arron Afflalo started vs. the Nets and finished with four points, four rebounds and no other stats to his credit in 21 minutes.

The Kings swapped two starting positions tonight, including Afflalo over Ty Lawson, but this only has fantasy relevance in deep leagues and DFS. Afflalo has only been a net-positive fantasy player in free throw shooting this year (93.9 percent on 2.1 attempts), which about sums up his lack of value.
Nov 27 - 9:16 PM

The Kings are starting Arron Afflalo and Kosta Koufos on Sunday, in place of Ty Lawson and Matt Barnes.

It was another last-second announcement from the Kings, as coach Dave Joerger seems to be playing the matchup game on a nightly basis. Despite their reinstated starting jobs, Afflalo and Koufos don't have fantasy appeal in typical leagues.
Nov 27 - 6:11 PM

Arron Afflalo started the second half on Friday, finishing with four points, two rebounds and five assists in 16 minutes.

It was a surprise to see the Kings go small guards against James Harden, which may speak volumes about how far Afflalo has fallen. He didn't have much value in the starting lineup anyway.
Nov 26 - 2:26 AM

Arron Afflalo started the third quarter over Ty Lawson against the Rockets on Friday.

The Kings gave up 68 points at half, including 38 points in the first half. It probably wasn't the best idea to go small against James Harden, but you live and learn.
Nov 25 - 11:58 PM

Arron Afflalo got the start against the Thunder on Wednesday with eight points, one rebound, four assists and no turnovers in 30 minutes.

He may be getting his minutes back with at least 30 in three of his last six games. Still, Afflalo just isn't getting enough shots and doesn't really add anything else to the stat sheet outside of low double-digit scoring. He's barely inside of the top 200 for standard leagues with most of his games action coming without Darren Collison. Most owners should be able to do better.
Nov 24 - 1:44 AM

Ty Lawson, Arron Afflalo, Rudy Gay, Matt Barnes and DeMarcus Cousins will start against the Thunder on Wednesday.

Afflalo is replacing Darren Collison for this starting lineup. Afflalo has not been very good in his time with the Kings and doesn't have much fantasy value.
Nov 23 - 10:27 PM

Arron Afflalo came off the bench on Sunday for 14 points (5-of-7 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in just 20 minutes of action.

Afflalo appeared to tweak his left leg in the first half, but he shook it off and continued to play so we're leaving him off the injury report. He wasn't providing standard-league value as a starter so his benching isn't really a negative -- if anything, it could result in improved offensive stats due to a higher usage rate with the second unit.
Nov 21 - 12:52 AM

Arron Afflalo hit 5-of-6 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, two rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's win over the Pelicans.

He's finally heating up, hitting 10-of-14 shots over his last two games and knocking down three 3-pointers. He's not doing much else, so he's still not a guy you want to target in standard leagues, unless you're simply desperate for 3-pointers.
Nov 9 - 1:49 AM

Arron Afflalo hit just 1-of-6 shots and zero 3-pointers to finish with three points in 18 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Magic.

Our last blurb on Afflalo, posted earlier on Thursday, talked about Afflalo's goal of stepping up his offense. Back to the drawing board, AA. Ben McLemore had 11 points, four boards, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer off the bench, and could be on the verge of stealing Afflalo's starting job.
Nov 3 - 9:44 PM

Arron Afflalo said he has to step it up on the offensive end.

He's only averaged 9.4 points in his 31.7 minutes per game in his five games. Afflalo will have a tough time turning in big nights playing next to last year's usage rate leader, DeMarcus Cousins, and also with Rudy Gay sitting at a 27.7 usage rate. There just isn't enough upside to use him in most leagues.
Nov 3 - 2:45 PM

Arron Afflalo hit 7-of-17 shots and a 3-pointer for a season-high 18 points, three rebounds and a steal in 41 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Heat.

Afflao has hit just five 3-pointers in five games thus far, which is a bit disappointing given his starting role. Additionally, he won't do much besides score occasionally and drain 3-pointers, so he's not a must-own fantasy player.
Nov 1 - 11:25 PM

Arron Afflalo started again on Monday and hit all three of his shots and three free throws for nine points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal.

The nine points were a season high, which should tell you everything you need to know about Afflalo right now. Unless you're desperate for threes in a deep league, and he didn't even hit one tonight, he belongs on waivers.
