Andrew Wiggins hit 10-of-19 shots and a 3-pointer for 25 points, six rebounds and an assist in 36 minutes of Thursday's 124-110 loss to the Raptors.
He's trending up again after scoring 29 points on Saturday and 25 tonight. He really hit a cold spell for a couple weeks after a hot start, but was right back on track tonight. Hopefully his shot continues to fall going forward, as his value is directly tied to his ability to score. Dec 8 - 9:40 PM

Andrew Wiggins picked up a season-high three steals in a win over the Hornets on Saturday, adding 29 points, one rebound, four assists and two 3-pointers.

Yeah, the points are nice, but how about those steals? Before tonight, Wiggins managed just nine steals in his 692 minutes this season. He still hasn't blocked a shot since Nov. 19, but we'll take the steals. Hopefully he can add a little more across-the-board value to boost him in standard leagues.
Dec 3 - 10:43 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit just 6-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, two rebounds and four assists before fouling out of Monday's loss to the Jazz.

Oh how the mighty have fallen, or at least, fallen into a slump. He was crushing early, scoring between 20 and 47 points in nine of his first 11 games, but has only topped 16 points once in his last six games. He has actually played a little better over his last three, but is stil a little wobbly after hitting just 9-of-48 shots over a three-game stretch just before Thanksgiving. His lack of peripheral stats makes him really dependent on scoring, which can make nights like his past few very frustrating for owners. His next matchup comes against the Knicks, who are among the top eight as far as fantasy points per game allowed to small forwards, so he's got that going for him. Wiggins will get hot again, but with Zach LaVine coming on and Karl-Anthony Towns getting more comfortable, the sell-high window on Wiggins may be shut for good.
Nov 29 - 12:37 AM

Andrew Wiggins made 7-of-18 from the field for 25 points with five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

Nothing cures a slump like a trip to Phoenix. Wiggins had a 32-point game against them in his last outing back in March. In his previous three games this year, he managed to make just 9-of-48 (18.8 percent), so he needed a decent game. He's still posting decent numbers on his jumper this year, but his 52.4 percent at the rim needs some work. His fantasy owners desperately need him to add more than just scoring.
Nov 26 - 2:02 AM

Andrew Wiggins made 9-of-10 free throws on Wednesday but he was just 2-of-19 from the field, finishing with 13 points, one steal and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

Wiggins is the only player since the 1983-84 season to make no more than two shots on at least 19 attempts without a single rebound or assist. His offensive struggles were fluky, but the lack of supporting stats is a trend -- he came in averaging just 4.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.5 blocks in a whopping 36.3 minutes per game. His owners just have to hope he starts chipping in more across the board.
Nov 24 - 1:28 AM

Andrew Wiggins, who was one of the hottest players in the league, has struggled over his last two and hit just 5-of-18 shots for 14 points and four rebounds in 39 minutes.

He's hit just 7-of-29 shots over his last two games and is 0-for-8 from downtown over that stretch. He was absolutely crushing before those two games and this looks like nothing more than a slump. Look for him to break out of it on Wednesday against the Pelicans.
Nov 22 - 12:10 AM

Andrew Wiggins hit just 2-of-11 shots to tie his season low with seven points, four rebounds, one assist and one block in 32 minutes of Saturday's loss to Memphis.

Wiggins had been on fire for most of the season and had scored between 22 and 47 points in each of his previous six games. The last time he scored seven, on Nov. 5, he bounced back with 36, 29, 22, 47, 29 and 35 points in his next six games. The Grizzlies are playing incredible defense right now and Wiggins will look to bounce back against the Celtics on Monday night.
Nov 19 - 11:29 PM

Andrew Wiggins stayed red hot on Thursday and hit 14-of-20 shots and three 3-pointers for 35 points, a season-high 10 rebounds, four assists and a steal in 38 minutes.

He also hit 4-of-4 free throws and committed just three turnovers. He's on a ridiculous roll right now and is averaging 32.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.4 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.2 3-pointers on 52 percent shooting over his last five. If he was more effective at stealing the ball he'd be an elite fantasy player, but he's pretty close to it as is.
Nov 17 - 11:09 PM

Andrew Wiggins got off to a slow start on Tuesday but had a solid fourth quarter and finished with 29 points, two rebounds, three assists, two blocks, three 3-pointers and four turnovers in 42 minutes.

He hit just 10-of-24 shots, but has now scored at least 22 points in five straight games, including 47 on Sunday against the Lakers, and 36 earlier this month against Brooklyn. He's only scored in single digits one time this season and is having a breakout year. If he starts contributing in other areas, he could be turning into an elite fantasy player right before our eyes.
Nov 15 - 10:56 PM

Andrew Wiggins exploded for a new career-high in scoring on Sunday with 47 points on 14-of-21 FGs and 17-of-22 FTs, adding two 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists and one block in 41 minutes.

Wiggins was unstoppable from the tip and he had carte blanche offensively with Zach LaVine (knee) unavailable tonight. He came in shooting a ludicrous 57.7 percent from downtown and has taken his offensive games to new heights this year -- the only thing preventing him from elite value is a lack of rebounds (4.1), assists (2.1) and defensive stats (0.5 steals, 0.4 blocks). That said, he's already a reliable mid-round option whose ceiling is unknown -- as coach Tom Thibodeau said after the game, "[Wiggins] is just scratching the surface."
Nov 13 - 9:55 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 29 points against the Magic on Wednesday with four rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers.

He's found his long-range shot this month. In his five November games, Wiggins averaged 22.8 points, 4.2 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.4 steals and 2.2 treys on 46.1 percent from the field. It would be nice for Wiggins to add some defensive stats, but the 3-pointers are a step in the right direction.
Nov 9 - 11:43 PM

Andrew Wiggins went off for 36 points, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and six 3-pointers vs. the Nets on Tuesday.

He finished with career-highs in points and triples. Wiggins was 13-of-29 from the field and turned the ball over four times, but this was a huge relief to see after he posted a seven-point dud in his last outing. He's now averaging 23.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 2.0 triples, but he won't live up to his ADP unless he can bring up his steals (0.3) and blocks (0.5).
Nov 8 - 10:53 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 25 points with three rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

The lack of non-scoring stats is a pain in the neck for Wiggins' fantasy owners. In his previous three, he averaged 23.7 points, 3.7 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.7 blocks, 0.3 steals and 1.3 treys on 52.3 percent from the field. So far the addition of Tom Thibodeau hasn't helped him there, but maybe that changes down the line. He should still be among the elite for scoring, though.
Nov 4 - 12:13 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 29 points against the Kings on Saturday with one rebound, no assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

He was getting a ton of shots late and didn't come through after a playing extremely well up until the last couple minutes Wiggins also missed a clutch free throw with 1:07 left. We all know the scoring will be there, but Wiggins has to add other stats to become a fantasy stud.
Oct 30 - 1:32 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored a game-high 25 points against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

He was 7-of-14 from the field and 10-of-14 from the line. Wiggins only attempted one shot from beyond the arc, which is just a shade below his preseason average of 1.3 per game. There was talk of Wiggins working in more treys to his game, but it doesn't look to be in the cards. Still, he should be scoring a ton and hopefully he can add some defensive stats.
