Andrew Wiggins, who was dealt from the T-Wolves to the Warriors in February, finds himself in a seemingly favorable spot moving forward, as far as his career is concerned.
Wiggins actually fared worse, at least from a fantasy perspective, during his month with the Warriors. Overall, he finished the year ranked 76th in 8-cat and 93rd in 9-cat but was outside the top-120 over his final nine games. The Warriors, who plan on starting Wiggins at small forward next year, should be at full strength next season with the return of stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. In addition, the team will presumably land a high lottery pick in the upcoming draft due to their lackluster record this season. If Wiggins is able to build some rapport with Curry, Thompson and Draymond Green during the rather short offseason, he will in for another high-floor, top-100 fantasy season in 2020-21. Fantasy owners should be accustomed to the ebb and flow that come with Wiggins' fantasy seasons, but throwing him into the mix with the rest of the Warriors is nonetheless intriguing.

According to The Athletic's Anthony Slater, the Warriors traded for Andrew Wiggins with the expectation that he would be the starting small forward in the 2020-21 season.
Wiggins could still be dealt if the Warriors have an opportunity to land a big name, but he clicks into their lineup as a forward better than D'Angelo Russell ever could as a guard. While his percentages were lackluster as always, Wiggins did make some progress as a 3-point shooter and distributor, leaving some hope that he could diversify his game enough to obtain standard league relevance on a healthy Warriors' roster. His scoring is bound to take a hit playing alongside Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson next year, and he will need to find other ways to contribute to earn major minutes in Golden State.

Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points on 9-of-20 shooting while adding nine rebounds, two dimes, a block and three 3-pointers on Thursday.
Wiggins looked solid on offense tonight and the shot profile is as fantasy friendly as it has ever been in his career. He's spotting up and drilling corner 3s and Stephen Curry and Draymond Green are sure to unlock some things for him on both ends of the floor.

Andrew Wiggins put up the first double-double of his Warriors career in Tuesday's 116-100 win over the Nuggets, finishing with 22 points, 10 assists, five rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot in 34 minutes of action.
As usual, Wiggins has been an average fantasy contributor during his time with the Warriors. He's getting more volume, shots, and opportunities, however, and that has led more opportunities to miss shots. Wiggins has actually averaged fewer PPG since joining the Warriors. If you have him on your roster and you're in the playoff hunt, you're stuck with him. It doesn't help Wiggins' stock that Stephen Curry's return is reportedly very imminent. Luckily, the minutes will be available the rest of the season for Wiggins.

Andrew Wiggins (back) returned from a one-game absence on Saturday but had a hard time finding his shooting rhythm, going 6-for-20 from the field for 17 points in 35 minutes.
Wiggins' 35 minutes indicate that his back is better. That said, his rough shooting night was somewhat mitigated by his seven rebounds, five assists, two blocks and three steals. He's been up and down since joining the Warriors, but overall Wiggins has managed to keep his peripheral contributions coming. He's a lock for mid-round value ROS.

Andrew Wiggins (back) has been cleared to play on Saturday night.
Wiggins was initially probable but fantasy GMs can now write his name in pen when setting lineups tonight. Look for Wiggins to take on plenty of the scoring burden for the undermanned Warriors.

Andrew Wiggins is probable (back) to take on the Suns on Saturday.
This is a new issue for Wiggins, who has looked like a nice fit on the Warriors as the number one offensive option. Things will transform when Stephen Curry does return, which should not be too much further away. Keep an eye out to see where things stand for Wiggins on Saturday. Everyone would do a little more for the Warriors if he was out of the lineup. Juan Toscano-Anderson is the best bet if you had to pick one player to target.

Andrew Wiggins scored 16 points (6-of-14 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) but did little else (one assist) in a 94-112 loss to the Kings on Tuesday.
Wiggins' Warriors six-game tenure has been a mixed bag to this point. Unfortunately, that may be the case for the rest of the season, as the Warriors will likely have inconsistent rosters with Stephen Curry (left hand fracture) and Draymond Green (right pelvic contusion) in and out of the lineup. Hold onto Wiggins and hope we see more of those early-season performances.

Andrew Wiggins (leg contusion) is not on Tuesday's injury report.
Apparently Wiggins is good to go after being listed as questionable earlier. The Warriors need him, so cross your fingers and hope the good outweighs the bad once again as Wiggins gears up for a high-usage end to the season.

Andrew Wiggins (leg contusion) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.
Wiggins was getting evaluated by the Warriors' medical staff on Monday. Juan Toscano-Anderson could keep his recent roll going if Wiggins is unavailable against the Kings.

Andrew Wiggins had an awful shooting performance as he went 3-of-16 from the field for eight points against the Pelicans on Sunday, but salvaged this line to a degree with 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal.
Wiggins has been surprisingly versatile with the Warriors thus far, and before tonight he had been shooting well as the number one offensive option. If Wiggins can continue to be a decent contributor in the steals and blocks department he will be a useful fantasy option in standard leagues. Once Stephen Curry takes the court Wiggins' offensive contributions are going to take a hit, and he will need to diversify his fantasy profile.

Andrew Wiggins recorded a team-high 22 points on 10-of-17 shooting with three rebounds, two 3s, one steal and two blocks in a loss to the Rockets on Thursday.
There's not much more to add regarding Wiggins and the Warriors' sad state. On a positive note, Wiggins has managed to keep the peripherals going since joining the Dubs, something he should be able to sustain ROS.

Andrew Wiggins had a pedestrian game in Monday's 101-113 loss to the Heat with 18 points on 6-of-14 shooting to go with two boards, four dimes and two triples.
Not much changes with Wiggins heading onto the Warriors as it's a similar situation as the one in Minnesota. There isn't much talent around him to work with, but if Stephen Curry returns, things might take a turn for the better.

Andrew Wiggins made a splash in his Warriors debut on Saturday, going 8-for-12 from the field and 5-of-9 from the line to finish with 24 points and a full line in 31 minutes.
Wiggins' poor shooting from the stripe was well worth the price of admission as he also was able to bring two rebounds, three assists, three treys, five steals and one block to the box. Overall, we can call his debut a "win," especially considering he did make an impact on the defensive end. After a strong start this season, Wiggins began to wane in recent weeks. The hope for his owners here is that the change in scenery will help give him a jolt and send him surging in the right direction. So far, so good.

Andrew Wiggins will make his Warriors debut against the Lakers on Saturday.
The offense will undoubtedly run through Wiggins who was already enjoying his best season to date before the trade so this should only boost his value even more.
