Evan Fournier led the Magic with 24 points during Wednesday's home loss, adding six rebounds, five assists and one steal in 41 minutes.
Fournier was tolerably efficient, hitting 9-of-22 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with a 3-of-8 mark from downtown. He did commit five turnovers, but this is basically what owners have come to expect -- solid scoring, 3-pointers and FT percentages, with limited supporting stats. Mar 29 - 10:44 PM

Evan Fournier scored 20 points with one rebound, one assist, two steals and two triples vs. the Raptors on Monday.

The Magic are all but out of the playoff hunt, but with Mario Hezonja playing more small-ball four, hopefully that means Fournier's workload is safe. The Magic play three more times this week and Fournier has scored 20+ points six times in March, so keep rolling him out there as long as he's healthy. He finished 7-of-12 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line in 30 minutes.
Mar 27 - 10:27 PM

Evan Fournier scored 25 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers against the Suns on Friday.

The Phoenix bump helps out another underwhelming performer here. While Fournier has only cleared the 15-point plateau once in his previous four, he does have solid March averages of 17.6 points, 2.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.7 treys in his previous games this month. He should be a mid-round guy going forward, assuming the Magic don't shut him down.
Mar 18 - 2:06 AM

Evan Fournier hit 8-of-18 from the floor, including four 3-pointers, to finish with 21 points in Monday's loss against the Kings.

Fournier is working on a string of six straight games with two or more 3-pointers, and he has at least one trey in 12 consecutive contests dating back to Feb. 11. The Frenchman has been tremendously effective in the month of March, averaging 18.3 points. As long as the Magic continue to battle and not go into tank mode, Fournier will see plenty of minutes and fantasy production.
Mar 14 - 1:20 AM

Evan Fournier scored 15 points on 4-of-10 shooting on Saturday vs. the Cavaliers.

While his minutes are safe going forward, Fournier is going to lose some touches with Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) back in the lineup -- Fournier's usage rate drops from 26.0 to 21.5 when Vooch is on the court. He finished 5-of-6 from the line and added two assists, one rebound, two steals and two triples in 32 minutes, but hopefully he can stay healthy with the Magic in tank mode.
Mar 11 - 10:05 PM

Evan Fournier made 7-of-17 shots to score 20 points on Wednesday, adding nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes of action.

Terrence Ross has given the Magic another high-volume wing scorer, but Fournier's role hasn't suffered as a result -- since the break he's actually averaging more points (17.2), 3-pointers (2.0) and FG attempts (14.3), while playing almost two minutes more per game. Inefficiency and paltry supporting stats have depressed his roto value, but he's a fine option if you need a scorer.
Mar 8 - 9:56 PM

Evan Fournier scored 25 points on Monday vs. the Knicks with three assists, two rebounds and four triples in 34 minutes.

The Knicks have been torched by SGs all season so Fournier took advantage of the great matchup, shooting 9-of-17 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line. Fournier has been up and down all season, but as long as he's healthy he should be a fun player to own down the stretch. He also gets a nice boost while Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) is out, as he gets a 4.3 usage rate bump with Vooch off the court.
Mar 6 - 10:38 PM

Evan Fournier got back on track offensively on Wednesday with a team-high 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting, but it wasn't enough vs. the visiting Knicks.

Fournier was slumping in his previous three games, so it was nice to see him heat up while playing alongside Terrence Ross tonight. Orlando has the second-worst record in the East, ahead of only the lowly Nets, and they have the third-worst record in the NBA. They're headed nowhere fast but that shouldn't impact Fournier's role at all, as the Magic have invested $68 million in him through the 2020-21 season.
Mar 1 - 10:15 PM

Evan Fournier made 2-of-10 from the field for seven points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes during a 105-86 win over the Hawks on Saturday.

His minutes are way up again with 35.5 per game over his last four. In that span, he averaged 15.0 points, 4.0 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 treys on 40.0 percent from the field. It'll be interesting to see how he and Terrence Ross co-exist, but Ross should absolutely have a higher usage than Serge Ibaka. While Fournier's scoring may take a minor hit, his fantasy value should be fine as long as he stays healthy.
Feb 25 - 10:12 PM

Evan Fournier scored 24 points with nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal, six turnovers and three 3-pointers against the 76ers on Thursday.

If the Magic do opt to stick with Elfrid Payton in the second unit, it should really help Fournier -- Payton probably won't stay on the bench for long. For what it's worth, he gets a hefty bump when he's not next to Payton and his assist percentage also goes up. Although, his net rating goes way down, so it's not a winning formula from a reality standpoint. Fournier looked like he was on his way to a monster night with 13 points in the first six minutes, but his fantasy owners will still take this. His value seems to be back to normal after dealing with a foot issue for a few weeks.
Feb 9 - 10:11 PM

Evan Fournier scored 21 points on 7-of-16 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Rockets.

The game was a blowout, but Fournier still logged 37 minutes and added three rebounds, three assists, one block and one triple. He also finished a perfect 6-of-6 from the line. He's still trying to find his rhythm since returning from his heel injury five games ago, averaging 14.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.2 triples on 37.3 percent shooting in that span. He has plenty of room to grow and gets a nice matchup on Thursday vs. Philly.
Feb 7 - 11:03 PM

Evan Fournier grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds against the Raptors on Friday to get to his first double-double of his career, adding 20 points, four assists and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He looked great and Fournier saying he wasn't feeling the effects of his foot injury earlier this week were for real. He was going off before his foot injury from a month ago, so he could go back to his early mid round value in standard leagues.
Feb 3 - 10:33 PM

Evan Fournier started and played 30 minutes during Wednesday's home loss, making 3-of-8 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs for 12 points, two 3-pointers, four assists and two steals.

It was Fournier's second game back from his foot injury, which he said responded well after his return on Monday. It looks like the injury is behind him, for good this time, and it shouldn't take long for him to once again emerge as the team's go-to scorer.
Feb 1 - 9:51 PM

Evan Fournier will start and C.J. Watson will move to the bench against the Pacers on Wednesday.

Fournier said his foot felt good after his return to the lineup on Monday, so this move to start him was expected. Fournier should be able to get more than his 23 minutes in that loss from Monday, which resulted in just nine points, one rebound and two assists. He should be put back into season-long lineups today, but DFS players may want to steer clear.
Feb 1 - 5:21 PM

Evan Fournier said he felt "pretty good" after the first five minutes or so in his return from an eight-game absence on Monday.

"In the second half, it was pretty good," Fournier said. "I thought I had my legs. I was feeling pretty well. The first five minutes was tough, though. When you don’t touch the ball [as you recover from an injury] and you don’t really get to run up and down the court, it’s tough. But after those five or six first minutes I thought it was pretty good." His conditioning still isn't quite where he'd like it to be, but that will come soon enough, as will his return to the starting five.
