Collin Sexton scored 19 (8-of-16 shooting) points in Cleveland's loss to the Heat on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer in 27 minutes.
We've come to expect these empty lines from Sexton, though the efficient scoring was at least a nice touch. He's strictly a points league option.

Collin Sexton scored 16 points on Thursday to follow up a season-high 20 points in Tuesday's contest.
Sexton added four rebounds and three assists in a reasonably nice outing. Sexton has late-round value with quite a bit of downside when the shooting percentage really tanks. He's a good scorer but he's really not a great player at this point and that's the reality.

Jordan Clarkson matched his season-high with 20 points (8-for-16 FGs, 3-for-5 FTs) and added four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer vs. the Sixers on Tuesday.
Clarkson has been providing late-round value in 23 minutes per game, but his free throw value will likely drop a bit and put him back in his familiar territory as a points streamer before too long. Collin Sexton fared well in this one as well, with 18 points, five boards, four assists and two steals in 33 minutes.

Cavs coach John Beilein wants Collin Sexton to understand how being used off the ball can be beneficial to him and by giving the sophomore more opportunities to score, as opposed to running the offense, the results have been encouraging.
Through nine games, Sexton is averaging 18.8 points on 44.3 percent shooting from the field and 42.2 percent from 3-point range, numbers that have gone up from last season. With rookie Darius Garland running the point, Sexton is providing an explosive scoring punch and developing into more of a combo guard. The lack of steals and the low assists contribute to him being a borderline top-150 asset for the year and he should be viewed as more of a scoring specialist right now.

Collin Sexton poured in 31 points on 10-of-16 shooting in a 108-87 win over the Knicks on Sunday.
He made five of his eight attempts from beyond the arc and added two rebounds and three assists. Sexton leads the Cavs in scoring with 18.8 points per game and has been a points and triples specialist thus far. He should be owned in all 12-plus team formats.

Collin Sexton shot 6-for-15 from the field and 7-for-7 from the line for 21 points with two boards, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Celtics on Tuesday.
Sexton blocked his first shot of the season, which tells you what you need to know about his value. He is currently outside of top-200 value, which makes him more of a points league asset.

Collin Sexton put up 21 points on 9-for-21 shooting Friday as well as three rebounds, two three-pointers, two assists and two steals.
Despite his first two steals of the season, it was a typically one-dimensional performance for Sexton. The fact it took him five games to record a steal highlights his inability to contribute anything other than inefficient scoring. It hasn't been a great start for Sexton, and if you drafted him as an upside flier late in drafts monitor your waivers closely for a potential replacement.

Collin Sexton got his shot to drop in Wednesday’s 117-11 win over the Bulls, finishing with 18 points (7-of-12 from the floor) to go with two rebounds, two assists, a 3-pointer and four turnovers in 28 minutes.
Sexton looked spry scoring the ball tonight and capped his performance off with a thunderous dunk over Wendell Carter Jr.. The good news with Sexton is that he looks like he’s made some strides in approving his efficiency from the floor, one of the two big drags against his fantasy game. The bad news is that he continues to provide little else outside the scoring department, and the shift over to shooting guard appears to have exacerbated that problem. He’s not a very desirable fantasy asset and it would take a real change to his play style to change that.

In a move that is considered a mere formality, the Cavs will exercise the third-year contract option on second-year man Collin Sexton.
The Cavs’ 2018 first-round pick will now make $4.99 million in the 2020-21 season. Aside from Sexton, the other rookie option the Cavs have to decide on is Ante Zizic’s, worth $3.8 million. It’s unclear what Cleveland’s plan is for Zizic at the current moment, as he is out with an injury and has a less clear role in the team’s rebuilding plan.

Collin Sexton scored 18 points (8-for-15 FGs) but added only two 3-pointers, three rebounds and one assist on Monday vs. the Bucks.
It's once again points and threes and little else for Sexton. He's yet to record a steal or a block this season, and he's not alone with it comes to disappointing Cavs guards tonight. Darius Garland had nine points, one rebound, two assists and one trey. Jordan Clarkson had 17 points, four assists and two triples. Matthew Dellavedova had five points, two boards, three dimes and a steal.

Collin Sexton had a solid performance on Saturday, providing the Cavs with 18 points on 6-of-14 shooting, along with five rebounds, three assists and two triples.
Sexton's potential leap this season will be pegged on his ability to strengthen his peripheral contributions outside of points and threes. We're still waiting. His backcourt partner, rookie Darius Garland, mustered 12 points, two 3s, one rebound, four assists and one steal in 29 minutes. Both guards are must-watch for managers in deep leagues looking for an extra boost in scoring, treys and some dimes.

Collin Sexton scored 16 points (5-of-15 shooting) with three threes (3-of-8) and two assists in a 94-85 loss to the Magic on Wednesday.
Sexton provided the points and threes that can be expected from him. Unfortunately, Sexton failed to produce much outside of that with only two rebounds, two assists and no defensive stats. Sexton is a late-round player with his value tied heavily to points and threes.

Collin Sexton shot 7-for-14 from the field for 20 points with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Celtics on Tuesday.
The Celtics were starting mostly backups and Sexton took advantage, but mostly in the points column. He hasn't shown an ability to fill up the stat sheet just yet outside of points and threes, so he can't be seen as anything more than a late-round pick in standard drafts this season.

Collin Sexton bounced back with 24 points, along with four rebounds, two assists, a steal and three treys in 26 minutes in Friday's 105-109 loss to the Pistons.
Sexton lead the team in scoring and was able to contribute some peripheral stats. Sexton has some competition for minutes with the Cavs' crowded backcourt but the Cavs will likely look to give Sexton all the minutes he can handle, to develop their second-year guard. If he can learn to consistently provide some peripheral stats, he may jump towards mid-round value.

Collin Sexton played 19 minutes on Monday, but provided just eight points, two 3-pointers and a rebound.
It's just a preseason game against a non-NBA opponent, but this is the worry with Sexton. With Garland around, the chances increase that Sexton doesn't provide much more than points and threes. It's probably most practical to think of him as having a 2-guard stat set right now.
