Andrew Wiggins poured in 41 points on 13-of-26 shooting in Sunday's 110-109 loss against the Lakers.
Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns each went over for 40 points, becoming the first duo in franchise history to score that many in a single game. He continues to roll up solid scoring totals, but he won't take that next step for fantasy value until he starts to contribute better across other categories. Wiggins is just 22 years old and he has plenty of time to improve, and he will. Apr 10 - 12:13 AM

Date:

Andrew Wiggins scored a game-high 36 points vs. Portland on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

Wiggins' athleticism and shot-making abilities were on full display tonight, as he made 14-of-27 field goals and 7-of-9 free throws. His overall roto value has been limited this year due to mediocre averages of 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.4 blocks, with 2.3 turnovers, but it's important to remember that he's just 22 years old. The best is yet to come.
Apr 7 - 1:32 AM

Andrew Wiggins finished with 24 points, four rebounds, three steals and two assists in 30 minutes Tuesday at Golden State.

After a subpar effort in Indiana on March 28, Wiggins has bounced back with 28.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 steal per game over his four outings. The points have not been the problem for Wiggins, but fantasy owners want to see more production in the other categories. Until then he is a solid head-to-head fantasy option, but he has much less value in rotisserie formats.
Apr 5 - 2:04 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 29 points (11-of-24 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with three boards and three triples vs. the Blazers on Monday.

While the points and 3-pointers were nice, it's lines like these that have been holding Wiggins back as a fantasy asset. Despite scoring 23.3 points per game this season, he's only returning 10th-round value in standard leagues due to averages of 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.3 triples on 45.4 percent shooting. He's much better in real life than in fantasy, but the 22-year-old still has plenty of room to grow.
Apr 3 - 9:53 PM

Andrew Wiggins' 32 points weren't enough in a 123-117 loss to the Kings on Saturday.

This was his 12th game of the season with 30+ points. He finished 13-of-20 from the field with three rebounds, three assists, one block and four triples, but hit just 2-of-6 from the line -- he's a career 76.0 percent shooter from there. With five games on the schedule, Wiggins is an elite option in the last full week of the regular season.
Apr 1 - 11:20 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit 9-of-20 shots and a 3-pointer for 27 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 40 minutes of Thursday's win over the Lakers.

Wiggins has had a big season and typically does some of his best work against the Lakers, although a lack of peripheral stats does offset his ability to score. He dropped 36 against the Lakers on Friday and the two teams meet again on April 9. If the Wolves are still playing their studs, Wiggins should be a solid DFS play that night.
Mar 30 - 10:56 PM

Andrew Wiggins' 36 points weren't enough in a 130-117 overtime loss to the Lakers on Friday.

He did all he could, shooting 14-of-28 from the field with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 44 minutes. This was his 11th game of the season with 30+ points, and if his owners can sneak by next week with three games, they get to look forward to the Wolves having five games from Apr. 3 to Apr. 9.
Mar 25 - 1:49 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 26 points in 39 minutes vs. the Heat on Friday.

He got off to a hot start with 13 points in the first quarter and finished 10-of-23 from the field with three rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple. Wiggins has come down to earth after averaging 28.8 points per game in February, as he's now averaging 19.2 points through eight games in March. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the Wolves play three games in each of the next two weeks after Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans. The Wolves do have five games from Apr. 3 to Apr. 9, though.
Mar 17 - 11:09 PM

Andrew Wiggins was held to 11 points on 3-of-11 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Bucks.

The minutes (37) were there tonight, but this was one of his worst lines since the turn of the new year. He added four rebounds, one assist and one steal, hitting 5-of-6 free throws. He's been a top-40 player in standard leagues over the last month with 26.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.2 3-pointers, so his fantasy owners should cut him some slack. The Wolves play four times next week.
Mar 11 - 11:21 PM

Andrew Wiggins made 6-of-24 from the field for 17 points with four rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 44 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

Kawhi Leonard is good. Really good. In fact, it made absolutely no sense for the Wolves to just keep going at him over and over and over again with Wiggins. If you ever want to act like you're playing nice to send your worst enemy to the most miserable place on earth, send them to the Kawhian Islands. We hear it's terrible this time of year.
Mar 5 - 12:31 AM

Andrew Wiggins finished with 27 points, four rebounds and four steals over 35 minutes in Monday's 102-88 road victory against the Kings.

Wiggins has now scored 25 or more points in nine consecutive games, longest active streak in the NBA. It is also the third-longest streak in the league this season. He also owns the longest active streak with 20 or more points, hitting the mark in 18 straight outings. He is much more than just a scorer, however, as he is working on a streak of 10 in a row with at least one steal, averaging 2.1 thefts per outings during the impressive run. Wiggins also has a 10-game streak with at least one 3-pointer. In other words, he can do it all.
Feb 28 - 12:58 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 30 points in 37 minutes vs. the Rockets on Saturday.

Wiggins finished 11-of-22 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line with two rebounds, two assists, three steals, one triple and six turnovers in the loss -- the Wolves finished with a season-high 25 turnovers that led to 38 points for Houston. He's now scored 20+ points in 17 straight games, the longest streak in franchise history. He's a safe bet to keep the streak going against the Kings on Monday.
Feb 26 - 12:35 AM

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.
