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.

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.

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.
