Stock Rising- Trevor Ariza

Trevor Ariza’s minutes are on the rise in Washington and so are his numbers.

Analysis: Ariza has averaged over 30 minutes per game over the past five games and in that span Ariza is averaging 2.2 3PM, 1.8 SPG, 15.8 PPG and 4.4 RPG. He has always been a great asset in the three point and steal departments when he’s getting minutes but he does have his flaws. Ariza is shooting 41% from the field this year and is only shooting 42% from the field for his career. He does get banged up more than most but he is a disposable piece on any fantasy team.

Ariza does have shooting guard/small forward eligibility so you can fill him in where the need is greatest on your squad. As long as he’s getting around 30 minutes per game like he was with the Hornets the last two years then his steals and threes will be there for you. His 4.4 rebounds per game this season is a fine number for a fantasy shooting guard as well. He’s available in 60-80% of fantasy leagues and he is worth a look while his minutes remain on the high end.
