Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points on 7-of-18 shooting (no threes) with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block over 43 minutes in Friday's loss to the Thunder.
Wiggins' season-long value is the pits at a top 200-280 level (8/9 cat) and during his recent hot streak it hasn't changed much at all. The culprits are high volume 39.4 percent field goal shooting and 63.9 percent foul shooting over the past two weeks, and just 1.5 combined money counting stats (3PMs, STLs, BLKs) in that span. One can see how the total package will grow and get better, but he has extreme impediments to fantasy value in standard formats and it's time owners get acclimated to that. Dec 13 - 1:42 AM

Andrew Wiggins hit 9-of-16 shots for 23 points, a career-high 10 rebounds, four assists and two steals in Wednesday's win over the Blazers.

This was his first double-double and he's starting to roll after scoring 21 on Monday. He's averaging 14.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steals over his last five games. He's shooting just 40 percent during that stretch, and is a terrible free throw shooter (5-of-10 tonight), but we're guessing the "should I drop Wiggins" questions will stop after his last couple games.
Dec 11 - 12:23 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points on 8-of-19 shooting with six rebounds and four assists in Monday's 102-86 loss to the Warriors.

Wiggins did not hit a three or have a steal or block and that's a problem for him. He's ranked outside of the top-225 in 8-cat leagues and he's at the bottom of the top-300 in 9-cat formats. Clearly the talent is there and those valuations will quickly rise once he gets going, but how high they can go is directly related to the three categories he got a goose egg in tonight.
Dec 9 - 1:44 AM

Andrew Wiggins (illness) said he is feeling a lot better after requiring an IV before Sunday's game against Portland.

Wiggins was able to play 26 minutes during Monday's loss to the Clippers after gutting through 18 minutes on Sunday. "A lot better, thank you," said Wiggins after Monday's game. "If you step on the court, you have to be 100 percent," the rookie said. "I tried to fight through it. I was just tired." While Wiggins has been playing over 28 minutes per game this season, he's a borderline player in standard fantasy leagues at the moment and is better off left on benches until he is able to improve his averages of 11.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists, and 1.1 steals.
Dec 2 - 10:32 AM

Andrew Wiggins (illness) played in Monday's blowout loss to the Clippers, scoring 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting (6-of-9 FTs) with one rebound, two assists and one steal over 26 minutes.

Wiggins is returning less than top-200 value on the year despite playing a healthy 28.6 mpg. His shooting percentages are both terrible and improvable, and there are enough steals (1.1), blocks (0.4) and threes (0.7) to give a glimmer of hope for the future. Whether or not the juice is worth the squeeze is up to the individual owner, as he's going to have to move along the learning curve faster than he has been. Most of the Wolves' other fantasy assets got destroyed in the loss.
Dec 2 - 1:28 AM

Andrew Wiggins (illness) is in the starting lineup against the Clippers on Monday.

There was not much of a doubt and he should be good to go. Wiggins will likely get his plenty of shots and he's starting to turn the corner. His minutes might be in check a bit, but he should be in your lineup.
Dec 1 - 9:17 PM

Andrew Wiggins (illness) received IV fluids at halftime of Sunday's loss to the Blazers.

Wiggins has violently ill at halftime and probably shouldn't have even played, but he wanted to give it a go for his team. Wiggins played less than four minutes after the half with Flip Saunders opting to rest him for Monday's game against the Clippers, but it's not a lock he'll suit up with the illness. If he sits, Shabazz Muhammad, who is coming off a career-high 28-point performance, would be a very interesting play in daily leagues.
Dec 1 - 11:40 AM

Andrew Wiggins (illness) was nowhere near 100 percent vs. the Blazers on Sunday as he shot just 3-of-8 from the field for seven points in 18 minutes.

The decimated Wolves showed admirable fight in a tough road game, and Wiggins deserves credit for even suiting up tonight. Minnesota turns right around to play the Clippers in L.A. on Monday and Wiggins should be considered questionable -- even if he does suit up, it's hard for fantasy owners to trust the up-and-down rookie while he's still recovering from his illness.
Dec 1 - 12:05 AM

Andrew Wiggins (illness) is listed in the starting lineup and is expected to play on Sunday.

He doesn't look good in warmups and there is still an outside chance that he sits this one out. If he does play then it will be excellent news for owners as Wiggins has shown improvement over the past two weeks. Those of you who picked up Shabazz Muhammad should probably move on.
Nov 30 - 8:51 PM

Andrew Wiggins (illness) is now a game-time decision for Sunday's game.

He is reportedly receiving IVs before the game and it doesn't look good for him. If Wiggins can't go Shabazz Muhammad would take his spot in the lineup but would only be worth a look in deeper leagues or as a daily plug-and-play. Stay tuned.
Nov 30 - 7:34 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit 1-of-6 shots for three points with five rebounds and one steal over 30 minutes on Friday against the Lakers.

Wiggins checked Kobe and surely tonight was a learning experience, but it's going to be a rough go for him in fantasy leagues this season and he won't come close to his ADP.
Nov 29 - 4:25 AM

Andrew Wiggins made 4-of-14 from the field for 14 points against the Bucks on Wednesday with eight rebounds, four assists, two blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He did have a big-time swat on Jabari Parker and brought a lot of energy, but he did look like a rookie. Wiggins has made just 34.8 percent of his 13.8 attempts from the field over his last five, averaging 14.8 points, 4.6 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.0 treys. He'll need to improve his shoot to climb into the top 100.
Nov 27 - 2:32 AM

Andrew Wiggins had multiple career-highs with 29 points (9-of-22 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs), two 3-pointers, five rebounds, four steals and one block in 41 minutes on Saturday, as the Wolves fell at home to the Kings.

The pace of Wiggins' development as a rookie has accelerated thanks to the Wolves' voluminous injuries, and over the past six games he's he's attempting a solid 13.0 field goals and 4.8 free throws. He's shooting 50.0 percent from downtown this season but hasn't attempted many triples, and fantasy owners looking for a high-upside free agent should stash him now and see what happens.
Nov 22 - 11:28 PM

Andrew Wiggins made 5-of-14 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line for 14 points against the Spurs on Friday with three rebounds, one assist and two steals in 33 minutes.

It wasn't a great game, but at least his usage rate had a noticeable increase. Wiggins is shooting the ball at a respectable 44 percent from the field, but the lack of defensive stats and treys have kept his fantasy value down. He's still going to be worth owning in standard leagues because of the upside now that Kevin Martin (wrist) is out.
Nov 21 - 11:17 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored just five points with three rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 23 minutes on Saturday against the Mavericks.

He had a career-high 20 points on Friday and scored in double figures in each of his previous three, but Wiggins could only muster six shots from the field. He's been a more of a stash guy than a player to start in most leagues. Although, he is making 55.6 percent from 3-point range.
