Collin Sexton posted 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting in 30 minutes vs. Portland on Wednesday, with one rebound and one assist.
Sexton has now scored double-digit points in 38 games this season, tied for second-most among all rookies. Deandre Ayton has also done it 38 times, while Luka Doncic has done it 39 times. Sexton's lack of fantasy appeal is evident with tonight's line, though, and he's not worth owning outside of very deep leagues. Jan 17 - 12:52 AM

Collin Sexton hit 7-of-14 shots, a 3-pointer and 2-of-4 free throws for 17 points, three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 33 minutes of Sunday's 101-95 win over the Lakers.

Sexton's nice line helped the Cavaliers snap a 12-game losing streak and the rookie only had one turnover on the night. That makes eight straight double-digit scoring nights for Sexton, who is averaging 14.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.2 3-pointers on 41 percent shooting over his last five. If he was dropped in your league, he's worth a look, but the Cavaliers only play three games this week.
Jan 14 - 12:05 AM

Collin Sexton made 2-of-12 from the field for 13 points with three rebounds, four assists, two turnovers and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He did make all eight from the line to get him to an impressive 87.9 FT% on the season, but his brutal shooting from the floor pulls him down to 41.5 FG% on the year. Plus, his efficiency continues to trend downward with just a 33.3 FG% this month, and he's not really doing anything else besides score. Maybe it'll click one day, but it's hard to see how he becomes a strong fantasy asset given all the holes in his game. You can probably do better.
Jan 9 - 10:53 PM

Collin Sexton made 3-of-13 from the field for 13 points, one rebound, three assists, one steal, four turnovers and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

No birthday narrative here with Sexton turning 20 today, and not having a true backup with Matthew Dellavedova (foot) out didn't help either. Sexton has not sniffed nine-cat value for over a month now, and he needs basically just a two-ish category player with his 14.7 points per game and 87 FT%. Maybe he can figure it out, but he isn't worth starting with so many holes in his fantasy game.
Jan 4 - 9:51 PM

Collin Sexton made 6-of-15 from the field for 18 points in Atlanta on Saturday, adding three rebounds, six assists and four fouls in 28 minutes.

It was a hometown game with his grandparents there, but Sexton missed clutch free throws and committed a bad foul down the stretch. He still has yet to put it all together and again he didn't have any defensive stats, but at least he had no turnovers. Perhaps he'll turn it on later this year, but Sexton still has some work to do.

Collin Sexton shot 3-of-16 from the field during a lopsided loss on Sunday, finishing with six points, three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 33 minutes.

Sexton was on the upswing in November with 45.0% shooting, but he's fallen to 42.9% in December and has been brutal in the past two weeks. He's adding a mere 2.3 assists, 0.9 triples and 0.6 steals from the point guard position, with 2.4 turnovers, and is far more appealing in points leagues than category-based leagues.
Sun, Dec 23, 2018 08:58:00 PM

Collin Sexton made 6-of-17 from the field for 17 points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover before fouling out against the Raptors on Friday.

He's stuck in a slump again and has made just 35.7% from the field over is last five outings. This is hardly a surprise because Sexton is still shooting way too many mid-range shots and his early success on those seemed unsustainable. He's really going to have to add more steals to his stat lines, but he's still an OK hold as the Cavs look to tank it up.
Fri, Dec 21, 2018 09:34:00 PM

Collin Sexton was held to five points on 2-of-11 shooting with three boards and one assist in 24 minutes vs. the Bucks on Friday.

He scored in double-digits in 18 straight games since becoming the full-time starter, but that streak was snapped tonight and he failed to score at all in the first half. Sexton has mediocre supporting stats with 3.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.9 triples prior to Friday, so his scoring has been keeping his value afloat.
Fri, Dec 14, 2018 11:21:00 PM

Collin Sexton tied his season-high of 29 points (13-of-23 FGs), adding three rebounds, six assists, two steals, and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

The 40 minutes and six dimes are both new season-highs for Sexton, who also matched his season-high in threes and steals. The rookie continues to thrive, scoring 20+ in three straight games. The return of Matthew Dellavedova should have minimal impact on Sexton's development.
Sat, Dec 8, 2018 10:44:00 PM

Collin Sexton finished Friday's game with 23 points, two assists and one rebound, making 9-of-16 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws in a lopsided home loss.

Sexton has scored at least 20 points in seven games this season, trailing Luka Doncic's rookie-leading 11 games with 20+ points. He came in shooting a fantastic 46.2% from deep and suggested recently that he "just [has] to shoot more of them," so that's something to keep an eye on -- he missed his two attempts tonight. Cleveland jettisoned George Hill in a trade on Friday and brought back Matthew Dellavedova, who shouldn't be a threat to Sexton, so his arrow continues to point straight up.
Fri, Dec 7, 2018 10:11:00 PM

Collin Sexton hinted that he'll start attempting more 3-pointers after knocking down three on Wednesday.

"I’m comfortable shooting it," Sexton said. "Shooting at a pretty good percentage. Just have to shoot more of them." The Cavs currently rank last in 3-point attempts, but Larry Drew is encouraging his team to shoot more. Sexton has been doing a nice job in the scoring department this season, but he's not bringing much else to the box score, so consistently adding a 3-point shot can only help his value.
Thu, Dec 6, 2018 01:44:00 PM

Collin Sexton held his own vs. the Warriors on Wednesday with 21 points, three assists, three 3-pointers, two rebounds and one steal.

The rookie made 7-of-14 shots and was 4-of-5 from the line, with a perfect 3-of-3 mark from downtown. He's a combined 5-of-8 on triples over the past five game, after shooting 48.1% from distance in November, so hopefully his attempts will trend up -- he hasn't taken more than three in a game all season. The No. 8 draft pick is an optimistic outlier in an increasingly hopeless season for the Cavs.
Wed, Dec 5, 2018 10:02:00 PM

Collin Sexton held his starting job against the Raptors in a 106-95 loss on Saturday, scoring 10 points with two rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 26 minutes.

The good news is that the Cavs are committed to him, but Sexton does have some competition for touches with both George Hill and Alec Burks getting in the mix. Sexton continues to be just a one-category guy for the counting stats, so he really needs to add some steals and dimes to his scoring lines.
Sat, Dec 1, 2018 10:44:00 PM

Collin Sexton will continue to start, even with George Hill (shoulder) set to return.

The Cavs might start Hill, but it would be alongside Sexton because they want him to develop off-ball, too. Hill's return shouldn't impact Sexton much, if at all.
Sat, Dec 1, 2018 06:32:00 PM

Collin Sexton made 9-of-20 from the field for 21 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal, two turnovers and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday during a 100-83 loss.

His usage continues to soar with around 20 shots over his last four games. Sexton is taking way too many midrange shots, but he's been making them to keep him at 45% from the field overall. He still really needs to up his steals and his dimes are among the lowest for starting point guards, so his fantasy ceiling isn't all that high. He should be owned in all leagues, of course.
