Evan Fournier played 34 minutes in the starting lineup against the Wizards on Thursday, making 8-of-10 from the field for 21 points with four rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers.
He had a disappointing start to his season on Wednesday and bounced back nicely. Fournier should have a good month of production while Victor Oladipo (face) is out and will be worth starting in most formats. Oct 30 - 9:43 PM

Making a start at SG for the short-handed Magic, Evan Fournier finished Tuesday's road loss with 11 points on 3-of-11 shooting, two 3-pointers, three rebounds and four turnovers.

He added only two assists without any steals, but his 32 minutes are encouraging and he's a potential source of points and 3-pointers until Victor Oladipo (facial fracture) returns to action. Just don't cut anyone with reliable value to get him.
Oct 28 - 10:41 PM

Evan Fournier will start at SG vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday, contrary to a previous report.

Jacque Vaughn may experiment with different looks in Victor Oladipo's absence, but at least for now the job belongs to Fournier. He struggled a bit during the preseason, averaging 7.2 points on 36.6 percent shooting in Orlando's past five games, and he has a ways to go before emerging with reliable standard-league value.

The Magic have picked up Evan Fournier's $2.3 million option for the 2015-16 season.

Fournier is Orlando's most likely starting SG on opening night, and he should keep the job until Victor Oladipo (facial fracture) is ready to return in late November. Fournier shot just 36.6 percent this preseason but he's worth a look for owners in search of low-end scoring, 3-point shooting and steals.
Oct 26 - 3:40 PM

Evan Fournier played well off the bench against the Mavericks on Friday with 12 points, one rebound, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

He's on the fantasy radar as a deep-league pickup while Victor Oladipo (face) is on the mend. Fournier will handle the ball a lot and should be have some nice short-term value.
Oct 25 - 10:49 AM

Evan Fournier made 1-of-6 from the field against the 76ers on Saturday for two points, one rebound, one assist and two steals in 27 minutes.

It wasn't a great game for him after being rested on Wednesday. Fournier is going to come off the bench and spell Victor Oladipo (knee), but he'll have some ball-handling opportunities. Fantasy owners can give him a look late in 16-team drafts.
Oct 18 - 10:17 PM

Evan Fournier is getting rest on Wednesday and will not play.

He's fine and is just getting rest. Coach Jacque Vaughn has been impressed with Fournier and he's going to be a key cog in the second unit. He's worth a look in 16-team leagues.
Oct 15 - 7:52 PM

Evan Fournier has been impressing coach Jacque Vaughn as a point guard.

He was actually great as a point guard in his brief time in Denver. In fact, while Ty Lawson, Nate Robinson, Andre Miller, Randy Foye and/or Aaron Brooks were on the bench, Fournier posted a terrific 57.6 effective field goal percentage. If Victor Oladipo (knee) misses time, Fournier will certainly be worth using in standard leagues. Even if VO is out, the Frenchman could have low-end fantasy value.
Oct 13 - 12:37 PM

Evan Fournier started in place of injured Victor Oladipo (knee) and had 13 points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on 4-of-10 shooting in 26 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Heat.

The Magic want Fournier to handle the ball more this season and he could find himself playing the point at times. But with Oladipo eating up a big chunk of shooting guard minutes this season, Fournier will have a hard time getting more than 20 minutes per game. Which is not a good thing in terms of his fantasy value.
Oct 7 - 11:42 PM

Magic coach Jacque Vaughn has told Evan Fournier he wants him to handle the ball more.

"I'm very excited because I know I'm going to handle the ball," he says. "That's what I like to do. In Denver, I was more of a stationary shooter, and that's not what I do best. So I'm very happy." While the Nuggets dealt with injuries last season, Fournier got some extended run during the month of April and put up 13.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 2.3 three-pointers over 27 minutes of action. He's going to have to fight for reserve minutes in Orlando with Willie Green and Ben Gordon, but if he can carve out a role in the rotation, he'll be able to provide late-round value for owners in standard leagues.
Oct 5 - 2:23 PM

Evan Fournier said he's enjoying the chance to handle the basketball with the Magic.

Fournier has been playing with the ball in his hands during Orlando's training camp and added that he and Nikola Vucevic have been doing well in the pick-and-roll during training camp. The 21-year-old saw increased run with the Nuggets during the month of April last season and responded by averaging 13.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 2.3 three-pointers. While he'll have to battle for minutes in the Magic backcourt, Fournier is worth a late-round flier in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 2 - 10:51 AM

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.
