Collin Sexton was a points machine in the Cavs' win over the Wizards on Friday with a team-high 25 points (8-of-17 FGs, 7-of-10 FTs), two rebounds, two assists and two treys.
Sexton's lack of assists and steals on a regular basis has been the biggest roadblock on his path to fantasy relevance. He's more of a points contributor and not much else on most nights. But at 25 points tonight, he's still an end-of-bench guy in standard leagues.

Collin Sexton played 20 minutes Friday in the Rising Stars game in Chicago, putting up 21 points, five rebounds and three assists.
Sexton was not pleased about being left off the original roster for Team USA. He got an opportunity due to Tyler Herro's injury and had a good showing Friday evening. He has been very consistent thus far, holding top-125 value on the season and ranks in the top-75 over the past two months. Keep running him out there.

Collin Sexton led the Cavs in scoring on Wednesday, netting 23 points on 9-of-18 shooting, while adding three rebounds and two assists.
Sexton has always been able to score the ball, and if he can consistently add other components to his game, he'll rise up the rankings quickly. Kevin Porter Jr. also chipped in 13 points in 31 minutes off the bench, while tacking on four rebounds and three assists. Both are promising young talents for those in dynasty leagues.

Collin Sexton stayed hot despite a 134-139 overtime loss to the Knicks on Monday as he posted 29 points (11-of-22 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.
Sexton has been on fire lately. And while his percentage will have to come down at some point, he appears to be turning the corner. He's put up second-round value over the last two weeks, and his days outside the top-150 certainly seem to been at an end. Kevin Porter continued his scoring success with 12 points (4-of-8 FGs, 2-of-6 FTs) in 24 minutes, but he still isn't a must-add in 12-team leagues.

Collin Sexton was active on Saturday, recording a game-high 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting with two rebounds, four assists, three steals and three triples in 33 minutes.
Sexton is normally a dry, vanilla guard, who only is good for some points and a sprinkling of assists. His impressive two-way performance tonight shows he's got room to improve in so many other areas. He's just inside the top-140 on the season but could be a post-ASB breakout candidate if he keeps this up.

Collin Sexton matched Kevin Love's 23 points on Thursday, adding four rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes.
Sexton has played much better of late now that the shot is falling with some effectiveness. Over the last two weeks, he is the #58 player in 9-category formats on the back of 48.6% from the floor and 96.6% from the charity stripe. He may fall back over the coming weeks, but he's done enough to be a reasonable volume fantasy asset.

Darius Garland (rest) is being listed as out for Tuesday's matchup with the Pelicans.
With Garland sitting out on the second half of a back-to-back there will be more minutes to go around for Collin Sexton, Dante Exum, Matthew Dellavedova, and Kevin Porter Jr. (questionable). Sexton will likely slide over to PG, while Porter would be a very interesting streamer if he hadn't only returned from a multi-week absence on Monday.

Collin Sexton posted an empty scoring line on Monday with 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting to go with three rebounds and five assists.
Sexton cooled off from deep and went back to his usual scoring lines with nothing else. He tallied zero defensive stats and zero triples to go with zero boards. Another empty scoring night like what we were used to from earlier this season.

Collin Sexton scored 29 points on 10-of-15 shooting to go with four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two triples in Thursday's 112-124 loss to the Wizards.
Sexton has been on a roll lately and tonight marks his fourth consecutive game with at least one 3-pointer made. Over the last two weeks, he's averaging 22.8 points, 3.8 boards, 3.0 assists, 0.5 steals and 2.7 3s on .456 shooting. It's unlikely this sticks, but he's been hot from deep and is adding more to his fantasy game than points as of late.

Collin Sexton shot 10-of-17 from the field and 4-of-6 from deep on his way to scoring 26 points with seven rebounds and two assists in a 118-116 loss to the Bulls on Saturday.
Sexton has been on a hot streak the past two weeks, shooting .474 from the field and scoring 23.1 points per game. He doesn't add much outside of points and threes and will be capped at late-round value until that changes.

Collin Sexton dropped 28 points in Friday's road loss, going 11-of-25 from the field while adding four rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers.
Sexton's now scored in double digits in 13 straight, with 20 or more in nine of those. Unfortunately, his lack of just about every other fantasy stat makes him a late-round option that's only suited for teams in need of scoring punch.

Darius Garland dished out a career-high 10 assists in a loss to the Clippers on Tuesday, adding 14 points on 5-of-16 shooting, two treys and one steal in 28 minutes.
This game was over early, but while Garland didn't shoot well, his rising assist totals continue to be very encouraging. He's worth picking up everywhere for the assists and threes, while his points, steals and percentages haven't been bad lately either. Backcourt mate Collin Sexton had 25 points with four 3-pointers and two steals but just one rebound and one assist in this loss.

Collin Sexton scored 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting to go with three rebounds, four assists and a steal on Monday.
Sexton continues to play like the Andrew Wiggins of old and the fact that his four assists are impressive will tell you a lot about his season.

Collin Sexton scored a team-high 25 points on Saturday, shooting 9-of-18 from the field and 4-of-7 from deep in a 111-103 win over the Nuggets.
Sexton added three rebounds, one assist and no defensive stats. He is a solid source of points but that is about it.
January 9, 2020, 9:49 pmCollin SextonPG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Collin Sexton scored 19 points on 9-of-19 shooting to go with six boards, one assist, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer in Thursday's win over the Pistons.
It was a rare night for Sexton, who got at least a triple-one for the first time this entire season. He's still a consistent scoring threat, but the numbers outside of points just aren't there.
