Quincy Acy played just 12 minutes off of the bench in Friday's loss to the Hornets, finishing with five points, four boards and one 3-pointer.

He has started 11 games this season, and just came off of a 15 point performance on Thursday so it was frustrating to see him fall back down to earth again. This kind of inconsistency will make him very tough to own in standard leagues, but owners looking for a cheap daily play should be on alert every time he starts.

Quincy Acy will come off the bench on Friday against the Hornets.

There were some conflicting reports earlier and now everything seems to be cleared up. Acy was fantastic on Thursday, but the Knicks will want the bigger body on Al Jefferson. Acy only has value in deep leagues.
Dec 5 - 5:57 PM

Quincy Acy played well in his 11th start of the season on Thursday with 15 points, six rebounds, three assists and one block in 31 minutes.

He created a lot of buzz in the preseason, but it didn't really carry over until now. Acy is probably a better fit in the rotation than Andrea Bargnani (calf), so it should be interesting to see how coach Derek Fisher plays it. Regardless, neither are very exciting fantasy options and Acy was very quiet in his previous five games. He can be left on the wire unless you're cutting something you're not going to miss.
Dec 4 - 11:01 PM

Quincy Acy shifted to the Knicks bench on Tuesday and was rarely heard from, scoring four points with two rebounds in just 10 minutes.

Acy has been one of the least fantasy-friendly starters in the NBA this season, so his benching is no cause for grieving. Even deep-league owners should be able to find players with more upside on the waiver wire.
Dec 2 - 10:43 PM

Quincy Acy is starting next to Jose Calderon, Iman Shumpert, Carmelo Anthony and Samuel Dalembert on Saturday.

This lineup was the favorite to be the opening night lineup, but coach Derek Fisher changed his mind and also Calderon went down. Acy is not an option in almost any fantasy league.
Nov 22 - 5:56 PM

Quincy Acy has been dealing with a sprained right wrist, and recently had cortisone shot to help relieve the pain.

Acy has been dealing with this injury since preseason, and it's been giving him trouble with catching passes. He committed three turnovers during Wednesday's game vs. the Timberwolves, all on fumbled passes, but also added nine points and eight rebounds. Acy has bounced in and out of the starting lineup with the Knicks, and is currently averaging 5.0 points and 5.9 rebounds on the year. In other words, he's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 21 - 9:41 AM

Quincy Acy played 32 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday with nine points, eight boards and three turnovers.

Garbage time was a factor here and Acy wouldn't usually get this much playing time even in a start. In his previous four starts, Acy only averaged 5.0 points, 6.3 boards and 0.3 blocks. He's only worth owning in deep leagues.
Nov 20 - 1:43 AM

Quincy Acy will start next to Shane Larkin, Iman Shumpert, Carmelo Anthony and Samuel Dalembert against the Wolves.

The Knicks are going with the big lineup tonight, but Acy is still not a fantasy option. He's only averaged 5.0 points, 6.3 boards and 0.3 blocks in his four previous starts.
Nov 19 - 6:43 PM

Quincy Acy will draw the start against Denver on Sunday, while Amare Stoudemire is expected to come off of the bench.

Acy isn't consistent enough to be considered in standard leagues, but he can provide enough points and rebounds to be relevant for owners in deeper leagues. However, as long as Stoudemire is active, he will likely get the bulk of the minutes at PF and is the obvious choice here.
Nov 16 - 11:43 AM

Quincy Acy will return to the Knicks' starting lineup on Wednesday, playing PF with Carmelo Anthony shifting to SF.

Tim Hardaway Jr. goes back to the bench as a consequence, where he'll battle J.R. Smith for reserve playing time behind Iman Shumpert and Melo. Acy is averaging just 5.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 21.5 minutes as a starter this season, ruling him out as a standard-league option.
Nov 12 - 5:53 PM

Quincy Acy returned from a wrist injury on Wednesday but played just 14 minutes and failed to score.

Jason Smith started over him and the move could be permanent. Put Smith on your radar, and forget about Acy for now.
Nov 5 - 11:59 PM

Quincy Acy (wrist) is available to play vs. the Pistons on Wednesday.

He was available on Tuesday but never left the bench, though coach Derek Fisher plans to deploy him against Detroit's big front line tonight. Acy will snag some rebounds and score a few garbage buckets around the rim, but even as a starter he's a marginal fantasy option.
Nov 5 - 6:42 PM

Quincy Acy (wrist) was reportedly available to play on Tuesday, but he never left the Knicks' bench.

Acy has been starting at PF for the Knicks and the team was likely just playing it safe tonight. Owners relying on his blue-collar production should double-check his status prior to Wednesday's road game in Detroit. If he can't suit up, Amare Stoudemire should earn another start at PF.
Nov 4 - 10:40 PM

Quincy Acy (wrist) is available to play on Tuesday, but he'll come off the bench behind Amare Stoudemire.

Stoudemire started one game to begin the season before shifting to a reserve role, so this may well be a temporary decision by coach Derek Fisher. Check back after the game to see how Acy fares with his sore wrist.
