Wiggins put up 40 points (15-26 FG, 2-4 3pt, 8-11 FT) along with four rebounds, two assists and two steals over 38 minutes in Wednesday's 112-99 win over the Nuggets.
Wiggins kept the ball rolling Wednesday as he posted 41 points against the Cavs on Tuesday and followed with another 40 against the Nuggets. The Wolves have definitely felt the loss of Zach LaVine (knee) but Wiggins has absorbed a lot of those minutes and is making the best of them with performances like these. Over the past five games, he's shot 55 percent from the field and 46 percent from beyond the arc, and he shows no sign of slowing down. He was aided by an inexplicably cold Nuggets squad that only shot 40 percent from the field, a far cry from the record-tying 3-point barrage they gave to the Warriors on Monday. Look out for Wiggins in the second half of the season. If you own him, you're thrilled, and he's as solid as they come as a DFS cash play.
Wiggins dropped in 41 points (16-29 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT) in addition to three rebounds, two assists and one steal across 41 minutes of action during Tuesday's 116-108 loss to the Cavaliers.
Wiggins was extremely aggressive on the offensive end, attempting 10 more shots than his closest teammate, and he was able to break the 40-point barrier for the third time this season. He has been on an absolute scoring binge since Zack LaVine (knee) went down for the season, averaging 29.7 points per game over the last six, and he should continue shouldering an even heavier load without one of the team's top scorers in the fold.
Wiggins recorded 27 points (10-19 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, four assists, two steals, and one block in 34 minutes during Sunday's 117-89 win over the Bulls.
Wiggins has now surpassed 20 points in 13 straight games while making at least 50 percent from the field in eight of those contests. Wiggins has simply been on fire lately, and he has also been contributing defensively, with nine steals in the last four tilts. It's still somewhat rare that the third-year forward puts together such a well-rounded effort, but he is nevertheless a valuable contributor across all fantasy formats.
Wiggins contributed 29 points (11-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, three steals and two assists across 37 minutes in Friday's 122-106 loss to the Pelicans.
Wiggins has been hot over his last three games, averaging 29 points per game over that span. With Zach LaVine done for the year after ACL surgery, the offense runs primarily through Wiggins and teammate Karl-Anthony Towns. Wiggins should continue to get around 20 shots up per game, which translates to a lot of opportunities to raise his season average of 22.4 points per game.
Wiggins played a complementary role to Karl-Anthony Towns, who exploded for a 27-point, 16-rebound double-double. Wiggins was actually the more aggressive of the two, putting up a team-high amount of shot attempts and hitting the 20-mark in that category for the second straight game. Although the third-year pro offers only modest production in the rebounds and assists categories, he's hit his stride in the scoring column, contributing at least 21 points in each of the last nine games.
