Carmelo Anthony scored 29 points during a 118-114 win over the Wolves on Friday, adding five rebounds, three assists, three steals and five 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
He snapped out of his slump, which included three games below 19 points on just a combined 32.0 percent from the field. Even with Kristaps Porzingis coming on, Anthony's shots haven't fallen off. He's also starting to hit more open threes with his season-high treys today, so he should be able to hold his third-round value on the season. Dec 3 - 12:42 AM

Carmelo Anthony hit 4-of-19 shots for 18 points, grabbed eight rebounds, blocked one shot, and had a steal in 34 minutes of Monday’s loss to the Thunder.

Despite a poor shooting night, Anthony managed to score 18 points and a lot of that had to do with his 10-of-11 from the free throw line. He remains a high-usage player for New York at 29.7 percent and has attempted at least 19 shots in five consecutive games. He relies mainly on his scoring for fantasy production, but has grabbed at least six rebounds in his last five contests.

Carmelo Anthony scored a season-high 35 points during a 113-110 overtime win over the Hornets on Monday, adding 14 rebounds, five assists, one block, two steals and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

Are the Knicks... good? They have three straight wins over 2015-16 playoff teams with tonight, the Blazers on Tuesday and the Hawks on Sunday. They're suddenly sixth in the Eastern Conference and are 8-7 on the year. As for Melo, he's getting hot as a jump shooter with 3.0 treys per game in his last five, averaging 24.8 points, 7.0 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.8 turnovers. He's figured out the new offense and looks like an early-round guy going forward.
Nov 26 - 12:42 AM

Carmelo Anthony scored 17 points with six rebounds, one block, one steal and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

The Knicks called a team meeting after their loss to the Wizards and have responded with two straight wins over the Hawks and Blazers. They have won four out of their last five games and are currently sitting in seventh place in the East with a 7-7 record. Melo only shot 7-of-22 from the field Tuesday, but his fantasy owners should cut him some slack after he tied his season-high in points (31) on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

Carmelo Anthony tied his season-high in points during Sunday's 104-94 win over the Hawks, tallying 31 points, seven boards, three assists, four 3-pointers, two steals and three turnovers in 38 minutes.

Melo went 12-of-22 from the field and knocked down all three of his freebies, giving him a solid 66.5 true shooting percentage to go with his 30.2 usage rate on the evening. His minutes and production have been steadily climbing throughout the season, and he should be a top-30 guy after the All-Star break pending health.
Nov 20 - 4:34 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 31 points on 10-of-21 shooting during Saturday's 118-107 loss to the Raptors, adding six boards, four assists, three 3-pointers and one turnover in 38 minutes.

The scoring was a season-high, as were the minutes and triples, and Toronto really couldn't do much to stop him. Melo's been a steady fifth-round talent on the year, but he's also only averaging 31.9 minutes a night. Head coach Jeff Hornacek has implied that he'll steadily increase his starters minutes as they get deeper into the season, so once Anthony is earning closer to 35 minutes a night, he could jump into the top-30 equation.
Nov 12 - 10:42 PM

Carmelo Anthony was ejected from Friday's game vs. the Boston with two technical fouls.

He was called for a loose ball foul and had some words for the officials after the fact. Anthony left the game with 12 points, two rebounds, one assist and one triple in 12 minutes. Lance Thomas will soak up most of Melo's minutes, but Kristaps Porzingis will get several more looks on offense.
Nov 11 - 8:30 PM

Coach Jeff Hornacek said he will not play his starters more than 35 minutes early in the season.

"Early in the season if you start playing these guys 35-38 minutes a game, by the time we get to March they are going to be worn out,’’ Hornacek said. This dampens the early-season fantasy value of Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis a bit, but hopefully keeps them fresh and productive for the long haul.
Nov 11 - 9:56 AM

Carmelo Anthony scored 22 points in a 110-96 win over the Nets on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

Coach Jeff Hornacek wisely staggered the minutes of Melo and Kristaps Porzingis. They only played together for seven minutes in the second half and they were actually roasted in that time with a minus-29.6 net rating. Plus, Melo lit it up with 14 points in the second half with most of those without KP next to him. Before tonight, that duo was averaging about 14 minutes per second half, so this was a big rotation tweak. Anthony should be fine regardless and it might be a positive for him.
Nov 10 - 1:12 AM

Carmelo Anthony knocked down 12-of-20 shots on his way to 28 points during Sunday's loss to Utah, adding nine boards, three assists and one turnover through 36 minutes of floor time.

Melo’s surgically repaired right knee has not been an issue at all this year, although his assists (2.8) are down from the previous season, while his turnovers (2.7) have gone up. Part of that has to do with Jeff Hornacek’s new system, but he’s also conceding some touches to Derrick Rose and Kristaps Porzingis. He might not be a top-30 guy again this season, but top-50 value is a reasonable expectation.
Nov 6 - 3:02 PM

Carmelo Anthony said he felt "everything's going to be alright" for the Knicks this year.

"I sat on the bench [in the 2nd half on Wednesday] and I realized that this is kind of a process and it's all new to everybody," Anthony said. The Knicks starters aren't having too bad of a time with a minus-6.4 net rating in their 54 minutes. However, they're at minus-19.8 in the 60 minutes Melo has been on the bench. Melo's fantasy value should be just fine as long as he's healthy.

Nov 3 - 4:45 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored a team-high 21 points during a 118-99 loss to the Rockets on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, one assist, one steal, five turnovers and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

The Knicks did go with more of a small-ball approach in this game, but that could have been due to Joakim Noah looking slow and the Rockets blowing the doors off them in the early going. Anthony is performing at about expectations this year, averaging 21.0 points, 5.0 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 treys in 33.0 minutes during his four games. He's only made 26.3 percent from three, so expect more scoring output from Melo beyond the arc.
Nov 2 - 11:09 PM

Carmelo Anthony hit 8-of-18 shots and two 3-pointers for a season-high 24 points, two rebounds and four steals in Tuesday's loss to the Pistons.

Melo scored 19 in the opener, 20 in Game 2 and then hit 24 tonight. The lack of rebounds and assists are a bit concerning, but he's healthy and is scoring for the 1-2 Knicks.
Nov 1 - 10:39 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 20 points against the Grizzlies on Saturday with six rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He's been getting a ton of open looks in this offense, but couldn't knock them down tonight. Anthony looks healthy and him going to the line 12 times tonight is a fantastic sign. He has a chance to bounce back after a couple down years, but he'll need to avoid the injury report.
Oct 29 - 11:21 PM

Carmelo Anthony had 19 points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal, four turnovers and five fouls in Tuesday's rough blowout loss to the Cavaliers.

LeBron James was a beast tonight and Anthony nearly fouled out trying to slow him down. He hit a 3-pointer and 8-of-18 shots, and while Anthony will be better than this on many nights, he's clearly does not belong in the same tier as LeBron.
