Arron Afflalo is available in trade talks as we approach the Feb. 23 deadline.
The Kings are in rebuild mode after moving on from DeMarcus Cousins, so it seems like a no-brainer for them to shop the veteran SG. Afflalo's contract for the 2017-18 season isn't guaranteed, so any team that has interest in acquiring him will likely view him as a one-season rental. To be clear, there's no reason to stash Afflalo in most formats. Feb 20 - 9:52 AM

Arron Afflalo is out for the remainder of the game on Wednesday with right glute/hamstring stiffness.

Matt Barnes started the second half for Afflalo. The team saying that Afflalo is only dealing with stiffness suggests the time off should help him get over this issue. It has also been called precautionary. Afflalo finished with four points and two assists in 16 minutes.
Feb 15 - 11:56 PM

Arron Afflalo scored two points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 36 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

That's pretty much Afflalo's fantasy skill set in a nutshell. He should get some minutes, but he just doesn't do much per minute. Most fantasy owners should be shooting for a higher upside.
Feb 5 - 2:55 AM

Arron Afflalo (illness) will play on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

Ben McLemore is the big loser here after he logged 35 minutes on Friday night. Afflalo has been underwhelming all season and is not a fantasy pickup, even with Garrett Temple (hamstring) out for weeks.
Feb 4 - 9:00 PM

Arron Afflalo (illness) is probable to play against the Warriors on Saturday night.

He was out for Friday night, which allowed Ben McLemore to start and score a season-high 18 points. Plus, we saw 18 minutes of Darren Collison next to Ty Lawson. McLemore could still get minutes, but he will be taking a hit upon Afflalo's return. While Afflalo could get some run, he's not exactly a stat-stuffer this season.
Feb 4 - 3:07 PM

Arron Afflalo (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Suns.

With Afflalo out, this may be Malachi Richardson's best chance for minutes so far this season. Ty Lawson, Darren Collison and Ben McLemore also get a slight bump here. Afflalo belongs on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 3 - 8:48 PM

Arron Afflalo (illness) is questionable to play against the Suns on Friday.

This is the latest game of the night with a 10:30 EST start, so DFS owners almost certainly won't know Afflalo's status before lineups lock. Afflalo would be looking at some serious minutes as the starting shooting guard, averaging 33.6 minutes per game over his last five. He doesn't have much value in standard leagues for lack of diversity on the stat sheet, and now being questionable makes him very risky for DFS. If he can't go, rookie Malachi Richardson would be thrust into his biggest role of his career while Ty Lawson, Darren Collison and Ben McLemore would play a little more.
Feb 3 - 4:04 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 15 points as a starter against the Pacers on Friday, adding one rebound, one turnover and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He was big time on Wednesday with 40 minutes and 14 points. We've obviously seen Dave Joerger pull the plug on Afflalo, but he's looked good on the court for five straight. The problem is it hasn't shown much on the stat sheet, averaging 9.8 points, 1.6 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.4 treys in that span. The lower upside makes him tough to grab unless you're streaming.
Jan 28 - 12:22 AM

Arron Afflalo hit a game-winning 3-pointer vs. the Cavaliers on Wednesday, finishing with 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting, four 3-pointers, three assists and two rebounds in 40 minutes.

The Kings had lost eight of their past 10 games, but they came in and stole an overtime win tonight. Afflalo's sky-high playing time is an encouraging sign, and he's bound to play a bigger role with Rudy Gay done for the season. He's never been a great per-minute fantasy option, however, and most owners can leave him on the wire.
Jan 25 - 10:33 PM

Arron Afflalo scored nine points with four assists, one block, one steal, one rebound and three 3-pointer in 35 minutes on Saturday against the Bulls.

Afflalo got the start at small forward tonight, but was a non-factor hitting just 3-of-9 shots. With Rudy Gay (Achilles) out for the season, Afflalo could continue to be a bigger part of the rotation for the Kings. However, he is a low-upside player and offers very little fantasy value, just like most of the other Kings' wing players.
Jan 21 - 11:51 PM

ESPN's Marc Stein reports Arron Afflalo and Ben McLemore have "as the most likely Kings to be dealt."

Stein adds that McLemore is "first and foremost" on the block, which was already reported to a lesser degree. The Kings are really in a tight spot because without Rudy Gay (Achilles) they're very unlikely to make the playoffs unless they unload future assets. Afflalo may actually be the starter with Gay out, but he has very little value right now.
Jan 20 - 3:06 PM

Arron Afflalo made a start against the Pacers on Wednesday with 11 points, one rebound, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He could be a bigger part of the rotation again with Rudy Gay (Achilles) likely out for the season. Although, Afflalo was a DNP-CD at times even when Gay missed games last month. His upside is really low anyway, so he's more of a deep-league pickup.
Jan 19 - 1:23 AM

Arron Afflalo will start and Garrett Temple will move to the bench on Wednesday against the Pacers.

It makes sense because the Kings need Temple to be the backup point guard. Temple's value is fine off the bench while Afflalo can stay on the wire.
Jan 18 - 10:30 PM

Arron Afflalo started the second half on Wednesday and finished with 15 points (5-of-8 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), three 3-pointers, one rebound and one assist in 31 minutes.

Afflalo is averaging 17.0 points on 68.4 percent shooting in his past two games, but you'll forgive us for being skeptical. The veteran came in scoring 7.7 points per game, his lowest mark since 2008-09 with the Pistons. He failed to provide 12-team value over the past two seasons, despite logging 32+ minutes per game, and there's no reason to expect his minutes to be that robust this year. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 5 - 2:16 AM

Arron Afflalo (right elbow) returned from a three-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets and scored a season-high 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two triples in 30 minutes.

Both Afflalo and Kosta Koufos played several seasons in Denver, so they got some revenge tonight and combined for 37 points on 16-of-20 shooting. Afflalo was averaging 7.2 points per game prior to Tuesday and he did this with Rudy Gay (hip) out, so fantasy owners can continue to ignore him.
