Wiggins has struggled this month, so watching him have a big night was refreshing. His lack of peripheral stats can be frustrating for fantasy owners, but on nights like tonight, his scoring makes up for it. He did grab a crucial rebound late in the game, which put him on the free throw line where he was able close the game out. Minnesota will face off against the Nuggets on Sunday, a team that Wiggins has scored 25 points against in each game this season. Jan 20 - 1:52 AM

Andrew Wiggins helped the Wolves earn their second win streak of the season on Wednesday, scoring 28 points (11-of-20 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) with two 3-pointers, four boards, two assists and one block.

Wiggins' lack of supporting stats draws a lot of attention for fantasy purposes, so it was nice to see him scoring efficiently while chipping in elsewhere. The Wolves are fourth in the league in total rebound rate, at 51.8, and they crushed the Rockets on the glass tonight with a 49-32 advantage, helping to seal the win. They can establish a season-best three-game streak by defeating the visiting Thunder on Friday.
Jan 12 - 12:10 AM

Andrew Wiggins made 6-of-19 from the field for 16 points against the Jazz on Saturday, adding five rebounds, four assists, one block, five turnovers and one 3-pointer.

After a 41-point gem on Friday, Wiggins came back to earth in a bad matchup. He's actually been really good in back-to-back sets before this game, making 51.9 percent from the field for 26.3 points per game in his previous six games with no rest. He gets a better matchup against the Mavs on Monday.
Jan 7 - 11:28 PM

Andrew Wiggins' 41 points weren't enough as the Wolves fell to the Wizards 112-105 on Friday night.

This was the second 40-point game of his career, as Wiggins dropped a career-high 47 points against the Lakers back on Nov. 13. He finished 16-of-30 from the field and 8-of-10 from the line, adding two assists, one rebound, two steals and one triple in 39 minutes. We already knew that Wiggins was an elite scorer, but we're still waiting on the rest of his game to develop.
Jan 6 - 10:25 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit just 2-of-15 shots for eight points, five rebounds, three assists and a steal in Tuesday's 93-91 loss to the Sixers.

Wiggins went through a slump earlier in the season but had scored at least 21 points in each of his last five games. He just didn't have his shot working tonight and if he would have, the Wolves probably would have won this game. They trailed by 26 at one point, but came back to nearly force overtime, which was ruined by a miracle shot by Robert Covington with 0.2 seconds remaining.
Jan 3 - 9:42 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 31 points with five rebounds, six assists and one steal in 39 minutes in Friday's win over the Bucks.

This was his fourth game of the season with 30+ points. Wiggins hit 10-of-18 from the field and 11-of-13 from the line, but missed all three of his triples. The biggest knock on Wiggins in fantasy circles is his lack of peripheral stats, so it's not a surprise that this was just his fourth career game with 5+ rebounds and 6+ assists.

Andrew Wiggins finished Sunday's road loss with 23 points (10-of-20 FGs, 3-of-8 FTs), three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 36 minutes.

High scoring lines with limited supporting stats are nothing new for Wiggins this season. He's scoring 21.7 points with 1.3 threes, but is averaging fewer rebounds (4.3) than Tyler Johnson, fewer assists (2.3) than Frank Kaminsky, fewer steals (0.6) than Andrew Bogut, and fewer blocks (0.4) than Kyle Korver. He's significantly better in points leagues, compared to roto.

Andrew Wiggins went 6-of-19 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line during Friday's loss to the Kings, on his way to 15 points, one assist, one block and two turnovers in 40 minutes.

While Wiggins has been attempting a career-high 17.8 shots a night this season, his efficiency hasn’t been great (43.7 percent from the field), and as per usual he’s not contributing much outside of scoring with just 1.3 triples, 4.2 boards, 2.3 dimes, 0.6 steals, 0.4 blocks and 2.4 turnovers per game. Unfortunately, that has him churning out just 13th round value in 9-cat leagues, although when you ignore the turnovers in the 8-cat format, he’s been a 10th round player.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 11:58:00 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 26 points on 11-of-20 shooting in 39 minutes on Monday vs. the Suns.

For the third time this season, Wiggins, Zach LaVine and Karl-Anthony Towns all scored 20+ points. Wiggins added three steals for the second straight game and added four rebounds, two assists and one triple with a few turnovers. He will likely see a lot of Thabo Sefolosha on Wednesday vs. the Hawks, but not many players can slow Wiggins down when he's on a roll.
Mon, Dec 19, 2016 11:50:00 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two triples in Tuesday's win over the Bulls.

Wiggins' upside in standard leagues has always been capped by a lack of peripheral stats, and this was just his second game of the season with a full nine-cat line. He's only 21 years old, so that will improve with time. He's still one of the best young scorers in the league and he finished 8-of-17 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line in the win. He's now scored 23+ points in four out of his last six games and gets a great matchup with the Rockets on Saturday.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 11:15:00 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit 8-of-14 shots for 25 points, five rebounds and two assists in 40 minutes on Sunday against the Warriors.

After a rocky end of November and beginning of December, Wiggins has shown some resurgence lately, scoring 25 or more points in three of his last five games. He doesn’t offer many peripheral stats, but is averaging 22.1 points and 1.4 threes per game, both of which are career-highs.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 10:58:00 PM

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.
Thu, Dec 8, 2016 09:40:00 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.
Sat, Dec 3, 2016 10:43:00 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.
Tue, Nov 29, 2016 12:37:00 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.
