Kyle Korver scored a season-high 30 points with three rebounds, two blocks and seven 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.
He got hot in the third quarter with his 12 helping the Cavs put this game out of reach with those 36 team points in 13 minutes -- he also had 28 points in his first 22 minutes. Korver's role is unclear right now as he'll have to compete for shots/minutes with Rodney Hood, George Hill and Jordan Clarkson. Korver was productive with 14 points on Wednesday, but he's still not really most fantasy owners should add. If you started him in DFS or as a stream tonight, pat yourself on the back.

Date:

Kyle Korver had 12 points, three rebounds, one assist and one block in 23 minutes on Sunday, hitting 4-of-9 field goals with three 3-pointers.

Dwyane Wade (personal) was out again today, which opened things up for Korver -- he hadn't scored double-digit points or played 23+ minutes since Jan. 8. In his current role, the 36-year-old is nothing but a deep-league 3-point specialist.
Jan 28 - 10:26 PM

Kyle Korver scored 19 points and hit five 3-pointers with five assists and two rebounds in 23 minutes on Monday vs. the Wolves.

He played 16 of his 23 minutes in the second half due to the lopsided score and also notched 16 of his 19 points. Korver was hitting 2.4 treys per game prior to Monday, but his minutes are trending down and he's just a one-trick pony in fantasy these days.
Jan 8 - 11:49 PM

Kyle Korver was limited to just three points across 20 minutes with three turnovers and three personal fouls in 20 minutes Saturday in Orlando.

Korver was just 1-of-4 from the field, and he is now averaging just 6.5 points per game over his past six outings, nearly two buckets shy of his seasonal numbers. That's because he has hit just 13-of-39 (33.3 percent) from the floor during the span. He is about as streaky as they get, and right now his fantasy appeal is at its nadir. Hopefully a hot streak is right around the corner for his nervous owners.
Jan 6 - 10:15 PM

Kyle Korver hit five 3-pointers to score 15 points vs. Boston on Wednesday, adding three rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes off the bench.

Korver's efforts weren't nearly enough, as the Cavs fell 102-88, but he satisfied any fantasy owners using him as a 3-point specialist. That's the sum total of his appeal, though, and in his previous four games he was averaging just 5.3 points on 29.2% shooting.
Jan 4 - 1:11 AM

Kyle Korver finished scoreless in 18 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 104-101 loss in Utah.

He misfired on all five of his 3-pointer attempts and was only able to provide fantasy owners with one assist and one rebound. Korver is in the midst of a big-time shooting slump, hitting just 32.2 percent (10-of-31) from the field over his past five games, averaging 5.8 PPG during the span. Unfortunately, he looks to be getting worse, not better. But it's happened before, and he'll scorch the nets for five or six triples soon to snap right back out of it.

Kyle Korver shot 1-of-7 from the field on Tuesday, including 0-of-4 from deep, finishing with two points, two rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes.

Korver had scored double-digit points in five consecutive games before tonight, which was his longest such streak with the Cavs. It was just an off-night for the perimeter specialist, but the matchup makes it hard to fathom -- the Bucks' 3-point defense has been awful this season, with opponents shooting a league-high 39.7% from deep against them. Expect Korver to find the range vs. Chicago on Thursday.
Tue, Dec 19, 2017 11:49:00 PM

Kyle Korver finished with 12 points, two rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes in Saturday's home win against the Jazz.

Korver hit 5-of-9 from the floor, including 2-of-3 from behind the 3-point stripe while posting a rather impressive plus-15 rating. It was the second consecutive game he has posted three more two-point baskets than three-point makes. Normally his game is coming off the bench and popping triples, but he has shown a little versatility over the past couple of games. He has a season-high four-game streak with 10 or more points, averaging 13.5 PPG during the stretch.
Sat, Dec 16, 2017 11:12:00 PM

Kyle Korver hit 6-of-11 shots and all of his makes were 3-pointers on his way to 19 points, one rebound and one assist in 23 minutes of Tuesday's win over his former team, the Hawks.

It wasn't a season high, but it was the most points he's scored since way back on Nov. 13. Korver's actually coming on right now, scoring at least 13 points in three of his last four games, but outside of the 3-pointers, he's not doing much of anything else. But if you need threes, he's worth a look right now.
Tue, Dec 12, 2017 10:32:00 PM

Kyle Korver hit 4-of-8 from behind the arc in Saturday's game against the 76ers, finishing with 13 points across 28 minutes.

Korver was second on the team with a plus-18 rating, giving the team a big boost off the bench with three of the team's five starters combining for 15 points. The team needed some offensive punch with Kevin Love on the shelf, so Korver, Dwyane Wade and Jeff Green stepped up.
Sat, Dec 9, 2017 11:19:00 PM

Kyle Korver posted nine points with three rebounds, two assists and a steal across 28 minutes in Friday's overtime win.

Korver and Dwyane Wade helped fill the void in the second half with Iman Shumpert battling a sore left knee. Unfortunately Korver was struggling with his shot, hitting just 2-of-5 from behind the arc. He is just 10-of-27 from behind the arc over his past three games.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 11:00:00 PM

Kyle Korver scored 21 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and five 3-pointers in 29 minutes vs. the Knicks on Monday.

He caught fire late and helped the Cavs overcome a 15-point deficit entering the fourth quarter, scoring 17 of his 21 points in the final frame. Korver has only played 21.4 minutes per game over his last five, but he qualifies as a solid 3-point specialist with 13.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.0 triples in that span.
Mon, Nov 13, 2017 10:17:00 PM

Kyle Korver finished with 13 points and three rebounds across 20 minutes in Saturday's 111-104 win at Dallas.

Korver was doing his usual thing, hitting 3-of-6 from behind the arc. He is averaging 2.6 3-pointers per game after his past 10 outings after failing to knock down a triple Oct. 21 in a game against Orlando. That blowout loss seems to have served as a wake-up for the long-distance specialist, and he hasn't had many poor shooting nights since.
Sat, Nov 11, 2017 11:13:00 PM

Kyle Korver got hot late during Sunday's loss to the Hawks, scoring 19 of his 23 points through the fourth quarter of action to go with five 3-pointers, five boards and a block.

Korver hit all five of his triples during the final frame of the game, posting a ridiculous 105.6 effective shooting percentage to go with a 31.1 usage rate through the fourth quarter. He's been playing well in Cleveland this season with averages of 10.9 points, 2.6 triples and just 0.8 turnovers per contest on 53.4 percent shooting, so he's certainly worth owning in 9-cat leagues as a deep league, 3-point specialist.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 06:37:00 PM

Kyle Korver scored eight points with one steal and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

He has to be close to starting, right? Sure, he's not a good defender at all, but he really can't be that much worse than what the Cavs are getting from their first-unit perimeter defense. Korver is worth a look in deeper leagues, especially if you need threes.
