Evan Fournier drained 10-of-20 shots including three 3-pointers to finish Wednesday's game with a team-high 28 points, five assists, two rebounds and only one turnover in 42 minutes.
Tobias Harris (ankle) was out again tonight which shifted more opportunities to Fournier, who made the most of the situation with his highest-scoring game since Nov. 18. He drained a key 3-pointer to tie the game at 96-96 after blowing a big fourth-quarter lead, but the Magic couldn't answer a Kawhi Leonard jumper with less than a second on the clock. It's a tough way to head into the All-Star break. Feb 10 - 11:18 PM

Evan Fournier returned to the starting lineup on Sunday with Tobias Harris (ankle) sidelined and went off for 21 points, five boards, three 3-pointers, two steals, one assist and three turnovers in 43 minutes.

If Harris is forced to miss any more time with the ankle injury, Fournier should continue to get some heavy run for Orlando, and he could easily flirt with mid-round value in the process. Mario Hezonja didn't do much with the increased opportunity today, missing all five of his shots through 14 minutes of action, so Fournier is obviously the primary beneficiary sans Tobias.
Feb 7 - 4:58 PM

Evan Fournier will start in place of Tobias Harris (ankle) on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

Harris is day-to-day with a sore left ankle, so this will be a temporary move for the Magic. Harris is averaging 32.9 minutes per game this season, so Fournier should see a heavy dose of playing time which makes him a solid play in fantasy leagues this afternoon. Mario Hezonja and Aaron Gordon get a slight boost as well.
Feb 7 - 11:25 AM

Evan Fournier scored 16 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

Coach Scott Skiles got pretty funky with rotations and put Fournier out there without a point guard at times. He was losing some minutes to Mario Hezonja, but he managed to get some run with some of the other starters tonight. He's still a low-end hold and the Magic losing so much doesn't help him.
Feb 5 - 9:28 PM

Evan Fournier played 19 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday with seven points, one rebound, two assists and one 3-pointer.

It's pretty clear Mario Hezonja is taking minutes away from Fournier. The Frenchman failed to crack 20 minutes in three of his last four games with a 24-point gem as the exception. Fournier was playing well a couple weeks ago, but his owners might want to start looking at other options in shallower formats.
Feb 3 - 11:36 PM

Evan Fournier played just 18 minutes against the Spurs on Monday with five points, one rebound and one 3-pointer.

Elfrid Payton wasn't benched and Mario Hezonja took some of Fournier's minutes. Fournier has been pretty solid in his move to the bench before this dud, averaging 15.6 points, 2.2 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.6 treys in those five. Stick with him for now.
Feb 2 - 12:35 AM

Evan Fournier fared well in 23 minutes off the bench Sunday, posting 24 points on 6-of-8 FGs and 8-of-11 FTs, with four 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and two steals.

In his first four games off the bench, Fournier averaged 13.5 points and 2.3 triples, but he added just 2.0 boards, 3.0 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.3 blocks. His steals should tick upward but a dearth of supporting stats is tough to swallow in most formats -- it's all but inevitable that his value will dissipate if he's stuck in a low-minute reserve role.
Jan 31 - 10:02 PM

Evan Fournier scored eight points with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover in 18 minuets against the Celtics.

Marcus Smart had him in a torture chamber for a few spots in this game. Fournier has been a sore spot in the rotation since behind bumped to the bench, but it hasn't affected his output too much. It still feels like his value will head south, but he's had decent numbers in fantasy up until tonight.
Jan 29 - 10:31 PM

Evan Fournier came off the bench and hit 5-of-11 shots and four 3-pointers for 15 points, one rebound and two assists.

We liked him a lot more as a starter, but he was good tonight. He's been playing well off the bench, averaging 15.3 points, 3.0 assists and 3.0 3-pointers in 31 minutes over his last three games.
Jan 26 - 11:44 PM

Evan Fournier scored 16 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

He was the first man off the bench tonight and he closed this game out over Aaron Gordon. Fournier's move to the bench looks like it's not going to hurt him, so he can remain owned in standard leagues.
Jan 25 - 11:16 PM

Orlando general manager Rob Hennigan said that he really values Evan Fournier.

"We really value Evan," Hennigan said. "We’ve said that all along, and I’ll say about Evan what we said about Tobias [Harris], which is it’s our intention that he’ll be here for many years to come. We really, really like him and think he’s a great piece to continue to grow with our team." Fournier will be a restricted free agent this summer, but all signs point to him returning to the Magic next season. The swingman has season averages of 13.7 points, 2.9 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.9 3-pointers on 43.1 percent shooting.
Jan 23 - 10:18 AM

Evan Fournier came off the bench for the first time this season against the Hornets on Friday, scoring 15 points with two rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

He started out red hot in the first half with 13 points, but he was bad in the second half -- lots of mistakes and weak defense. Fournier still is in line for minutes around 30, so he might be able to hold his value in standard leagues. Expect him to trend down, though.
Jan 22 - 10:00 PM

Evan Fournier will come off the bench against the Hornets on Friday.

This is going to be very odd for Fournier coming off the bench for the first time all season. Fournier has played 1,308 minutes this season and only 144 of them have been with both Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton both on the bench. Considering he's not a play maker, the move to the bench could hurt him. His owners should see what happens tonight before making a hasty cut.
Jan 22 - 5:29 PM

Evan Fournier shot just 3-of-14 from the field during Wednesday's disastrous home loss to Philly, scoring nine points with two 3-pointers, three boards and five steals in 37 minutes.

He appeared to roll his ankle on the first play of the game but it didn't cost him any time, so we're leaving him off the injury report. Cold shooting has taken a big toll on Fournier -- he's been a liability in 12-team leagues in January while averaging 10.5 points on 42.1 percent shooting, with minimal supporting stats. At least the steals were nice tonight.
Jan 20 - 10:26 PM

Evan Fournier scored 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting (3-of-3 from the line) on Thursday, to go with three boards, three assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

Fournier struggled with foul trouble during the first-half of the game, playing just five minutes and attempting only one shot. However, he caught fire during the second-half and draining seven of his 10 attempts, and finishing the game with a true shooting percentage of 85.2. Fournier was ice cold to begin the month of January, but he's gotten things back on track and has averaged 15.0 points, 3.3 assists, 2.0 three-pointers and 1.0 steal on 62.1 percent shooting over his past three outings.
