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.

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.

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.

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.
Nov 8 - 4:30 AM

Arron Afflalo said the Nuggets' starting unit needs to step up their play after Wednesday's loss to the Kings.

"Obviously that starting unit, that I'm a part of, needs to definitely pick it up," Afflalo said after the game. "Talent-wise we're fine, but it's been proven year-in and year-out that talent isn't the end-all, be-all. You have to have some cohesiveness, you have to have game plans that work with the group that's on the floor and hopefully we can get that all together." Afflalo played just 22 minutes and hit 1-of-4 shots for two points in the loss, so his fantasy owners may want to keep him out of their lineups until he can string together a few solid performances.

Arron Afflalo started, but played just 22 minutes and hit 1-of-4 shots for two points on Wednesday.

We're not sure what Brian Shaw is doing, but the Nuggets are a mess. Afflalo had scored at least 14 points in each of his previous three games, so this was a fluke. But after this disaster, Afflalo is not a must-start player until he proves that this was a one-game disappearing act.
Nov 6 - 1:39 AM

Arron Afflalo played 40 minutes in the starting lineup against the Pistons on Wednesday with 15 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He's getting a ton of run at shooting guard and has clearly the preferred option over Randy Foye. Afflalo will likely be scoring in the teens with multiple treys along the way, so he should be in just about all lineups right now.
Oct 30 - 1:55 AM

Arron Afflalo made 5-of-8 from the field for 11 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

His days of being the primary scoring option are behind him, so that should cost him some fantasy value. Afflalo is more of a late-round target for owners looking to bolster their treys.
Oct 17 - 12:42 AM

Arron Afflalo said he's ready for a leadership role with the Denver Nuggets and would like to be a team captain.

Afflalo was careful not to overstep his bounds when asked about his desire to be the captain his new team. "It's the ability to be vocal at the right time. Understanding your players. How to be vocal with each and every individual on your team and uplifting them," Afflalo said. "That's the main thing for a leader is [to be] somebody that they want to follow and can be uplifted by." The 28-year-old is coming off a career season in Orlando and should see enough run to warrant a middle-to-late round fantasy selection in standard leagues.
Oct 2 - 12:30 PM

Arron Afflalo thinks the Nuggets can be title contenders in 2014-15.

"I'm happy to be back in Denver, I got some very familiar teammates," Afflalo said. "I believe this is a championship team under the right mindset and coaching." Affalo begins his second stint in Denver coming off a 2013-14 season with Orlando during which he averaged career highs in points (18.2), rebounds (3.6), and assists (3.4), while adding 1.8 three-pointers per game. Afflalo will likely be underrated heading into 2014-15 fantasy drafts and will see plenty of run in Denver that should help him outproduce his draft spot.

Denver Nuggets trade for SF Arron Afflalo.

The Nuggets have traded Evan Fournier and a second round pick to the Orlando Magic in return for Afflalo, who will begin his second stint with Denver. Afflalo averaged 18.2 points, 1.8 three-pointers, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in his second season with the Magic and will continue to be a valuable source of 3-pointers for his fantasy owners in Denver. Fournier is a solid bench player, but the move seems like a bit of a head scratcher for Orlando as the main benefit of the trade comes in the form of $6 million of salary cap relief.
