Stock Falling- Channing Frye

The Suns have been playing some solid basketball as of late but Channing Frye continues to struggle.

Analysis: Channing Frye is the 19th rated fantasy power forward this season but over the last month he is the 34th rated power forward. Frye is averaging just 6.8 points per game, 3.8 rebounds and is shooting 35% from the field in his last five games. Considering the Suns are deep at the four this is not the time to be struggling.

There are still a few positives. Frye is hitting 2.2 threes per game this year and he still managed to hit 2.0 threes per game in the month of February. Channing Frye is second behind Kevin Love among power forwards in threes made this season. Frye is also a top 20 fantasy power forward in steals, blocks and free throw percentage, all of which he is not struggling with at the moment. His minutes and numbers certainly need monitoring in the immediate future and here is why- Markieff Morris is averaging the same amount of minutes as Frye over the last month but Frye’s minutes have been falling over the last two weeks.

Channing Frye is available in 15-25% of fantasy leagues.

Under The Radar- Channing Frye

Channing Frye is not your typical fantasy big man but he is putting up numbers that merit roster consideration.

Analysis: Frye has averaged 14.8 PPG, 5.8 RPG and 3.2 3PM in his last five games. He’s shooting 47% from the field this season and shoots 81% from the stripe for his career. This year he’s averaging 0.8 BPG and 0.9 SPG in 27 minutes of floor time per night.

The former Arizona product has dual position eligibility(PF/C). He will hurt you a bit in blocks and rebounds but his three ball is elite at his position. He currently ranks 3rd among power forwards in three pointers made. Channing Frye is available in 40-50% of fantasy leagues.

Another interesting power forward is Glen Davis. He’s not a sexy fantasy power forward but he’s getting the job done. In his last five games his line looks like this- 7.2 RPG, 10.6 PPG, 48% FG, 0.8 BPG, 0.8 SPG. The biggest asset Davis has going for him is his floor time, he’s averaging 31 minutes per game this year which is a top fifteen mark for power forwards. He is available in 25-70% of fantasy leagues.
