Andrew Wiggins scored 27 points on 11-of-21 shooting in Friday's win over the Mavericks.
It would be tough to find a hotter player in the NBA right now. Wiggins added seven rebounds, three assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer, and he's now scored 25+ points in seven straight games. Wiggins is averaging a ridiculous 32.8 points on 56.3 percent shooting with 4.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five outings, so he's quickly developing into a complete player in both real life and in fantasy. He just turned 22 years old on Thursday. Feb 25 - 12:04 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 40 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and two treys in Wednesday's 112-99 win over the Nuggets.

He's on some kind of heater right now. Wiggins was shooting 55 percent from the field and 46 percent from deep in his previous five games, and this performance comes on the heels of a 41-point outing on Tuesday vs. the Cavs. He shot 15-of-26 from the field and 8-of-11 from the line tonight, and he joined Kevin Love as just the second player in Wolves' history to score 40 points in back-to-back to games. This has been the best stretch of his career and he looks poised to have a monster run after the break. Wiggins also put Nikola Jokic on a poster tonight, so check that out in the link below.
Feb 15 - 11:37 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit 16-of-29 shots and four 3-pointers for 41 points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal in 41 minutes of Tuesday's 116-108 loss to the Cavaliers.

This was Wiggins' third 40-point game of the season and he scored 20 points in the third quarter alone. When his shot was off tonight he was firing bricks, but he's on fire right now, averaging 31 points on 55 percent shooting over his last five.
Feb 14 - 10:34 PM

The Wolves defeated the Bulls on Sunday, led by Andrew Wiggins' 27 points (10-of-19 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one turnover.

In the five games since Zach LaVine went down, Wiggins is averaging 20.0 shots per game, which is up from his season average of 18.2 FG attempts. The Wolves shot just 6-of-24 from deep tonight and Wiggins' improved range will be more crucial than ever, so we'll be watching for a possible uptick in his 3-point totals. Supporting stats have always been the issue for him, so any increase would be huge for his roto value.
Feb 12 - 6:26 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 31 points with five rebounds, six assists, one block, two steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Raptors on Wednesday.

As expected, Wiggins has seen a nice increase in usage since the Zach LaVine (knee) injury. In those three, Wiggins averaged 27.0 points, 3.7 boards, 3.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.3 treys in 37.2 minutes. Those non-scoring stats are probably not sustainable, but coach Tom Thibodeau did say Wiggins "has to do more." He's clearly trending up.
Feb 9 - 1:34 AM

Andrew Wiggins hit 11-of-23 shots and two 3-pointers for 27 points, four rebounds and two steals in Monday's 105-103 loss to the Heat.

The Wolves mounted an impressive second-half comeback, but Wiggins missed two shots in the final nine seconds that could have changed the outcome of this game. Wiggins is going to be leaned on more heavily with Zach LaVine's (knee) season ending early, and Wiggins looked great tonight, despite a lack of peripheral stats.
Feb 6 - 11:06 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points in Saturday's 107-99 loss to the Grizzlies.

Wiggins shot 9-of-22 from the field and 4-of-7 from the line, adding five assists, two rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple in 37 minutes. He dished out five assists for just the fifth time this season, so he should get a slight bump in that category with Zach LaVine (knee) out for the season -- Wiggins gets an 8.4 usage rate bump with LaVine off the floor.
Feb 5 - 12:31 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points with three rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 40 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

Zach LaVine did deal with a knee contusion tonight, but we still don't know if he'll miss time going forward. If he does, that could mean big usage for Wiggins. With LaVine on the bench, Wiggins gets an 8.4 usage rate bump while he is also more efficient. He'll be an interesting DFS play in a bad matchup against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Feb 4 - 12:21 AM

Andrew Wiggins came up clutch once again with 27 points in Monday's overtime win over the Magic, shooting 10-of-21 from the field with five assists, three rebounds, one block, two steals and one triple in 41 minutes.

With 10 seconds remaining on the clock, Wiggins drained a mid-range jumper to send the game to overtime. He also had arguably one of the dunks of the season which you can check out in the link below. Wiggins hit a game-winning jumper over the Suns a few games ago and the Wolves have won five out of their last six games, so his confidence is probably at an all-time high. He will get a matchup with the Cavaliers on Wednesday, the team that traded him away for Kevin Love.
Jan 30 - 11:09 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit 7-of-17 shots for 21 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer on Thursday against the Pacers.

Wiggins has now scored over 20 points in four consecutive games and has been contributing in other categories aside from scoring, which is part of his growth as a player. He should continue to roll on Saturday, as he faces the Nets who rank 28th in defense efficiency and are giving up the most fantasy points per game to small forwards. He scored 36 points in their last meeting.
Jan 26 - 10:47 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 31 points and hit the game-winning shot in a 112-111 victory over the Suns on Tuesday.

He hit a fadeaway mid-range jumper in P.J. Tucker's face with just a second left on the clock (link below), and he finished 11-of-22 from the field with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples in 39 minutes. After the game, Wiggins said he got to his spot on the game-winner and was confident that it was going in. Wiggins is trending up again with 24+ points in three straight games, and his assists are also up with 3+ dimes in five straight. If last season is any indication, Wiggins should only improve as the season progresses.
Jan 25 - 12:23 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 27 points with four rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer in Thursday's 104-101 win against the Clippers.

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.
