Orlando Magic acquire G Evan Fournier.
The Magic parted with Arron Afflalo to acquire Fournier and a second round pick in Thursday's 2014 NBA Draft and also gained $6 million of cap space in the process. The move seems a little strange on the surface as the Magic had reportedly received better offers for Afflalo, but there could also be another shoe or two to drop here as the team could have another trade or free agent target in mind. Fournier should serve as a solid bench option for the Magic, but he doesn't offer a ton fantasy value outside of deeper leagues. Jun 26 - 11:26 AM

Evan Fournier hit 7-of-16 shots and three 3-pointers for 23 points, three rebounds and two assists in Saturday's win over the Jazz.

Fournier has hit double figures in three of his last four games, and is averaging 15.6 points and 2.8 3-pointers over his last five games. If you need threes, he should be a solid option over the Nuggets' final two games.
Apr 13 - 12:47 AM

Evan Fournier scored 14 points off the bench against the Rockets on Wednesday with one board, one assist and three 3-pointers.

He didn't quite put up 26 points like he did on Sunday, but it's become clear he'll get plenty of chances to produce with the Nuggets running out of bodies. Ty Lawson (ankle) and Wilson Chandler (groin) are likely out for the year, which means Fournier could score in the teens while hitting two-plus triples the rest of the way.
Apr 10 - 12:23 AM

Evan Fournier scored 26 points off the bench on Sunday, making six 3-pointers with four rebounds and four assists, but the Nuggets lost in Houston after blowing a 13-point lead with fewer than four minutes remaining.

The second-year SG has alternated between single-digit and double-digit scoring over the past few weeks and he's not a stable fantasy option despite Wilson Chandler's continued absence. Of broader concern is the fact that his shooting percentage has plummeted from his rookie season's 49.3 percent to this season's 42.0 percent, making him difficult to recommend as a fantasy option in 2014-15.
Apr 6 - 10:11 PM

Evan Fournier played 20 minutes against the Grizzlies during a 92-100 loss on Friday, scoring six points with two boards and two turnovers.

Ty Lawson (ankle) went down with an injury late, so Fournier could be looking at some extra playing time. He's been a disappointment for much of his time while on the court, so he's a low-end speculative add until Lawson is ruled out, which might not even happen.
Apr 4 - 10:26 PM

Evan Fournier scored 15 points during Friday's ugly 133-102 loss to the Spurs with five boards, one assist and three fouls.

He didn't make any treys tonight, but continues to see plenty of run at small forward. The Nuggets really only have Fournier and Quincy Miller, who went 0-of-6 from the field tonight, as their small forward options. Fournier is worth a look for owners seeking 3-pointers, but is a bit too inconsistent to be used in standards.
Mar 29 - 4:54 AM

Evan Fournier started in place of Wilson Chandler (hip) on Wednesday and had 11 points and a 3-pointer on 5-of-9 shooting in 24 minutes.

Fournier could start again on Friday with Chandler iffy, but there's no guarantee that a start will result in big fantasy numbers.
Mar 20 - 1:42 AM

Coach Brian Shaw said either Evan Fournier or Darrell Arthur will start at small forward in Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Shaw said his decision will be based on how the Pistons start off the game. We're expecting them to go with Kyle Singler at small forward, Josh Smith at power forward and Greg Monroe at center. Therefore, Shaw could also go small with Fournier as his starter. The Frenchman is averaging 14.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 3-pointers per game in three starts so far this year.

Evan Fournier scored 14 points on 6-of-14 shooting (including two threes) with six rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes off the bench on Friday.

With Randy Foye possibly worn down after carrying so much load there could be an added role for Fournier in the coming days but there's not enough to go on for an add in most formats. If he can consistently play 30 minutes per game then he can float late-round value but anything less and his deficiencies in defensive stat categories hold him down.
Mar 15 - 1:59 AM

Evan Fournier played just 14 minutes off the bench against the Wolves on Monday, scoring five points with one assist and one 3-pointer.

The Nuggets continue to play Randy Foye way more minutes than he's used to, so it's going to be tough for Fournier to hold fantasy value while Foye and Ty Lawson are healthy. He can be cut in most formats.
Mar 4 - 1:13 AM

Evan Fournier played 32 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday with 16 points, seven boards, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

The Nuggets are starting to integrate him into the offense a little more and he's played 33.6 minutes per game over his last five. Fournier was able to rack up useful averages of 13.8 points, 4.8 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 steals in that span, but he did only shoot 39.6 percent from the field. If you're looking for treys, he's worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 2 - 12:52 AM

Evan Fournier played 44 minutes against the Nets on Thursday with eight points, three rebounds, five assists and four turnovers.

He started at small forward and was responsible for handling the ball for the Nuggets tonight. Of course, that's not exactly his forte because he's a little turnover prone and doesn't have great passing skills. Fournier should still be in line for solid minutes while Wilson Chandler (knee) is down, so he's worth a look in standard leagues.
Feb 28 - 1:30 AM

Evan Fournier is starting at small forward for the Nuggets on Thursday night.

He will start in place of the injured Wilson Chandler (knee) for tonight and likely for the foreseeable future. Chandler has never really been the type of player to return quickly from injuries, so Fournier is worth a look in standard formats.
Feb 27 - 8:58 PM

Evan Fournier hit just 2-of-13 shots and zero 3-pointers for nine points, two rebounds, three assists and two steals in Tuesday's loss.

He had 27 in his last game, but scored nine and seven points in his previous two games. He's going to get loose for some big lines and is getting over 30 minutes per game over his last five, but as his game log proves, he'll also have plenty of down nights to offset the big ones.
Feb 26 - 12:26 AM

Evan Fournier was hot on Sunday night vs. the Kings in a 109-95 loss, shooting 8-of-11 from the field for a career-high 27 points, four boards, five assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers.

Despite the score, Fournier only scored seven of his 27 in the fourth quarter tonight. He caught our attention back when Nate Robinson (knee) went down for his ability to hit treys and how Randy Foye hasn't been a minutes monster in his career. Perhaps the Nuggets play Foye a little less and Fournier can hold his value in standard leagues. He's worth a look for owners seeking treys.
