Kyle O'Quinn scored 20 points on 9-of-11 shooting with seven rebounds and one block in Monday's loss to the Bulls.
O'Quinn has been great for the last two months and should be in all lineups. Victor Oladipo continued to play limited minutes (23) with 10 points, three rebounds, four assists, a steal and a three, and Dewayne Dedmon supplied some big-man stats with six points, nine boards and two blocks in 28 minutes.

Kyle O'Quinn played well in his 25 minutes of action on Friday during a 96-86 loss to the Wizards, scoring 13 points with nine boards, one assist and three blocks.

He shot 6-of-9 from the field, but just 1-of-4 from the line. O'Quinn has been solid since Nikola Vuecvic went down and he's hit double-figure scoring in each of those four. He's a solid option in fantasy leagues thanks to 17 blocks in his last five games.
Apr 11 - 10:16 PM

Kyle O'Quinn made 6-of-7 from the field for 14 points against the Wolves on Saturday with 13 boards, one assist, one steal and four blocks in 31 minutes.

Strangely enough, he had more makes from the field tonight than he did in his 5-of-20 from the field on Friday. Even before taking into account his recent offensive outburst, O'Quinn seemed to have already made his case as a must-own player for his boards and blocks. He shouldn't be on any wires until Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) is back.
Apr 5 - 9:55 PM

Kyle O'Quinn attempted a career-high 20 shots against the Bobcats on Friday, making five of them for 10 points with six boards, one assist, three steals and five blocks in 30 minutes.

He started at center with Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) out and may have turned in the highest usage rate of his career. O'Quinn has some solid per-minute averages thanks to some nice block totals, and is definitely worth a speculative add in all leagues for Saturday night vs. the Wolves and possibly beyond.
Apr 4 - 9:31 PM

Magic big man Kyle O'Quinn struggled in a scoreless performance on Sunday, missing his two shot attempts while grabbing three rebounds in 15 minutes.

O'Quinn's offense is a secondary concern for the Magic, and he's still been helping fantasy owners with 7.7 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.8 blocks per game in March. Dewayne Dedmon played well in 15 minutes off the bench tonight and it's worth keeping an eye on Orlando's frontcourt rotations, but O'Quinn should maintain his 20-25 minute role for the final eight games of the season.
Mar 30 - 8:34 PM

Kyle O'Quinn will start at PF for the Magic when they take on the Bobcats Friday.

This will be O'Quinn's 10th consecutive start at PF and while the results have been unspectacular, the 24-year-old can provide some fantasy value as a starter. O'Quinn is averaging 8.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.9 blocks in 22.5 minutes per game over his last 10 contests and should be looked at as a solid start with a low ceiling in medium-to-deep leagues.
Mar 28 - 10:50 AM

Kyle O'Quinn received his third start in a row on Wednesday with 10 points, eight boards, one assist and two blocks in 27 minutes.

It's not a line that will be the lede of your fantasy team's recap, but O'Quinn shot 5-of-8 from the field and has been very solid since Glen Davis has departed. He's a solid low-upside player in standard leagues and his 1.5 blocks per game over his previous 11 could be on the rise, as well.
Mar 12 - 9:55 PM

Kyle O'Quinn and Moe Harkless are starting against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

The pair will join Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo and Nikola Vucevic in the starting lineup against the Nuggets. Victor Oladipo is healthy, but going with a bigger lineup makes sense against the weak interior defense of the Nuggets. O'Quinn is a decent play for those seeking big-man stats. while Harkless could be a hit-or-miss guy.
Mar 12 - 5:28 PM

Kyle O'Quinn started for the second straight game in Monday's loss to the Bucks, scoring 10 points on 5-of-8 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist and two blocks over 20 minutes.

O'Quinn does some variation of this every night whether he's starting or coming off the bench and it all adds up to late-round value, meaning he should be owned in most if not all 12-team formats.
Mar 11 - 12:42 AM

Kyle O'Quinn will make his second straight start against the Bucks on Monday.

O'Quinn has been a late-round value for the past month despite his 20-25 minute workload on most nights and should be owned in most 12-team formats.
Mar 10 - 7:25 PM

Kyle O'Quinn started over Tobias Harris on Saturday, but played just 18 minutes and finished with nine points, five rebounds, a steal and a block.

It was a little odd that he started and his minutes didn't really change from what he has been playing off the bench. He's averaging 8.2 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 2.0 blocks over his last five games in just 17.8 minutes, so you know what you're going to get from O'Quinn whether he's starting or coming off the bench. We're guessing that his start was a one-time thing, so look for him to play around 20 minutes off the bench in the next one.
Mar 8 - 11:19 PM

Kyle O'Quinn will start alongside Nikola Vucevic on Saturday, as the Magic try to match up with the Spurs.

Beat writer John Denton reports that Tobias Harris will likely shift to the bench with Moe Harkless staying at SF. Keep in mind that Jameer Nelson (illness) is returning to action for Orlando, but Victor Oladipo (ankle) will once again be sidelined. O'Quinn is averaging 8.4 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.2 steals in just 18 minutes per game over his last five, and he should provide solid plug-and-play value as a temporary starter.
Mar 8 - 6:05 PM

Kyle O'Quinn hit just 4-of-13 shots for eight points, eight rebounds, a steal and three blocks in just 16 minutes on Wednesday.

He made the most of his time tonight, but his line would have been much more exciting had his shot been working. He's worth owning in deeper leagues given his strong play off the bench over the last few weeks.
Mar 5 - 9:53 PM

Kyle O'Quinn came off the bench for 14 points, a career-high 15 rebounds, two steals and a block on 6-of-10 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Heat.

O'Quinn has been seeing nice minutes off the bench and played one of his best games against the centerless Heat tonight. Not only were his 15 rebounds a career high, but this marks his first double-double of the season, and just the second time he's hit double figures in rebounding all year. If you had him in your lineup tonight, don't expect a repeat performance on Sunday, although anything is possible against the hapless Sixers.
Mar 1 - 10:26 PM

Kyle O'Quinn lasted just 14 minutes due to foul trouble (he had five of them), finishing with two points, four rebounds, one steal and four blocks on Wednesday.

The four blocks salvaged his night and owners can take comfort in the foul trouble being the reason for the low minutes. He's not a must-own player, but is serving a purpose in deeper leagues on most nights.
