2013 Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire: Channing Frye

There aren’t many big men in fantasy basketball that have the ability to knock down jump shots and grab a steady dose of rebounds. Most bigs either do one thing or the other.

Channing Frye of the Phoenix Suns is one of these multidimensional star that can add both scoring and boards to his stat sheet, though. Over the last six games, for instance, Frye has averaged an impressive 17.5 points per game. He has also added 5.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.3 steals, and one block per contest.

However, Frye does something that most big men don’t do. He can knock down shots from behind the arc.

Frye has averaged around one (0.9) three-pointer per game throughout his entire seven-year career, but he has been making it rain threes this year. The center-eligible player has dropped 3.3 three-pointers per game over the last six contests, and the veteran is contributing like a shooting guard.

Frye will start to slow down as the season moves forward, as he always does, but he will still be a decent bench option for the rest of the year. He will add a handful of rebounds to go along with a couple three-pointers each game, and he will do it all while hitting double-digit points.

Frye is only owned in 28% of ESPN leagues and he should be grabbed immediately by anyone looking for a versatile big man.
