Quincy Acy started at power forward on Thursday against the Cavs and had six offensive rebounds during a win, adding eight points, four defensive rebounds, two assists, one block and two turnovers.
He's always been a guy with a high motor and no other stat tells that story like an offensive rebound. Acy made most of the starts at power forward in the preseason and he might stick in that role. However, he's really only an option in deeper leagues since he won't be receiving minutes higher than the mid-20s. Oct 31 - 12:49 AM

Quincy Acy, and not Amare Stoudemire, will start at power forward for the Knicks on Thursday.

It took exactly one game for Derek Fisher to change the Knicks starting lineup. Amare will serve as the backup center against the Cavs, while Acy is inserted into the starting lineup for his defense. Acy is one of those players who has more real-life value than actual fantasy value.

Quincy Acy (sore wrist) returned to action on Friday with eight points and 10 rebounds in 27 minutes off the Knicks' bench.

New York was playing without Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) and Travis Outlaw (Achilles), which opened up a few more minutes for Acy in the frontcourt. Knicks president Phil Jackson recently praised Acy as a "terrific rebounder," and said the team relies on him to be "tough, quick-footed and energetic on defense at both the [SF and PF] positions." Unfortunately, his real-world value won't amount to a hill of beans in fantasy leagues.

Quincy Acy did not play on Wednesday due to a sore right wrist.

He started the previous four games and coach Derek Fisher said before the game he wasn't starting because he wanted to experiment with Jason Smith. Acy is the favorite to start, but it doesn't necessarily mean he'll be posting value worth using in 14-team leagues.

Quincy Acy is expected to be the starting power forward on opening night.

Kudos to coach Derek Fisher if this holds up. Despite his big contract, Andrea Bargnani has essentially been dead weight, especially on defense. What's more he and Amare Stoudemire had horrible splits while they were on the floor together. Acy isn't going to blow you away with stats, but he could be a seven and seven guy with a block. He's only a late-round flier in deeper leagues.

Quincy Acy started again on Tuesday and had six points, two rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in a win over the Sixers.

The starting power forward job is up for grabs and Acy has had a good preseason. It would have to be a pretty deep league, and he'd have to win the starting job for the Knicks, if he's going to be worth drafting in fantasy. And it's important to keep in mind that Andrea Bargnani got another night off in this one.

Quincy Acy started again on Monday and scored four points on 2-of-5 shooting with five rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes.

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) did not play and based on comments from those that cover the team it seems the starting power forward position is up for grabs. Acy has rough edges but he developed a nice little outside game over the summer. His somewhat overrated defense is still a nice addition and he won't need touches to be happy next to Melo and Co. We're not saying he's the starter and even if he is there are extreme fantasy limitations, but it's something to watch.

Quincy Acy started for the Knicks on Saturday and had nine points, four rebounds, an assist and a steal on 4-of-9 shooting in 27 minutes.

We still expect J.R. Smith and Andrea Bargnani to be starters for the Knicks, but that may not be set in stone. Either way, it's too early to think about burning a draft pick on Acy.
Oct 11 - 10:02 PM

Quincy Acy's contract for the upcoming season will be fully guaranteed.

It'll be worth $915,243 and Acy should make the team. The Knicks have some issues at center and they probably shouldn't play Amare Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani next to each other anymore -- even though they may try. Acy was looking to play further from the basket last offseason, but he's shifted back to a low-block guy.

The Knicks will trade Wayne Ellington, Jeremy Tyler and a 2016 second-round pick to the Kings for Quincy Acy and Travis Outlaw.

The Kings had some issues at power forward and Acy would have likely been in the rotation, but he should get a chance to compete for minutes with the Knicks as well. The Raptors tried him at small forward last summer, but the Knicks will almost certainly use him as a power forward or even in the center spot in some smaller lineups. He's not going to be worth drafting in most fantasy formats while the Knicks are healthy.

The Kings have until Saturday to decide whether or not they will bring Quincy Acy back.

Acy has a team option for approximately $915,000 and the Kings are considering bringing back the 23-year-old forward to fill a bench role. Acy averaged 11.3 points and 6.7 rebounds in seven Summer League games, but his 2014-15 fantasy value would be limited if the Kings pick up his option as he'll be hard-pressed to find more playing than the 13.4 minutes that he averaged in 2013-14.

Kings coach Mike Malone wants to see F Quincy Acy attack the rim more often offensively.

Acy drained a pair of 3-pointers early in Friday's Summer League game and finished with a team-high 12 points in the first half before cooling off. "That’s a blessing and a curse – it’s great he hit those shots early, but when we’re playing with a small lineup we need Quincy to get inside," said Malone. "He’s been working hard on that part of his game." Acy will likely reprise the bench role he played with the Kings last season, giving him negligible fantasy appeal.

Quincy Acy will head to Las Vegas Summer League in July.

He was there last year while with the Raptors with the primary goal of working as a small forward, which went well. Acy shifted to more of a big-man role with the Kings and is likely to focus in that area with the Vegas team. He could be playing for a roster spot with the big club.

Quincy Acy (ankle) grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds in his return to action on Friday after missing the Kings' previous three games.

This sums up Acy's role for Sacramento, as he comes off the bench to provide physicality and rebounding, and there's not much to be gleaned for fantasy purposes.
Mar 29 - 9:49 AM

Quincy Acy (ankle) was available for Wednesday night's game against the Knicks.

Acy received a DNP-CD Wednesday, but was in uniform after missing two games with a sprained ankle. While it's always good news when a player returns to health, Acy is only averaged 1.3 points and 2.5 rebounds per game during the month of March so his fantasy value is extremely limited.
