Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Scores 24 efficient points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards recorded 24 points (7-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-8 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 40 minutes during Friday's overtime loss to the Celtics.

The 19-year-old has now scored 20-plus points in seven out of his last eight games. Before Friday's game, Edwards was only shooting 39.7 percent from the field, but he's been much better as of late, shooting 48.8 percent over his last eight games. The rookie should continue providing high-end points along with solid rebounds, steals and three-pointers the rest of the way, though his field-goal percentage may be sporadic.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Scores 27 points on 21 shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards scored 27 points (11-21 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT) to go along with five rebounds, three assists and one steal across 34 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.

Edwards showed little hesitation in taking shots, topping 20 attempts from the field for the fourth time in his last seven games. He bounced back from a poor shooting night Monday against the Kings, though he did struggle from the free-throw line. Though he began the season slowly in terms of peripheral stat production, Edwards has at least one steal in each of his last 20 games. Across that span of time, he's averaged 23.8 points, 2.6 threes, 5.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.6 steals per contest.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Endures poor shooting night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards went for 19 points (5-15 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 6-7 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and two steals over 38 minutes in Monday's 116-106 victory over the Kings.

Edwards saw a streak of five straight 20-point outings come to an end, but he at least managed to extend his streak of consecutive games with a steal to 19. The No. 1 overall pick has enjoyed a nice rookie season from a counting-stats standpoint, though his efficiency -- while improving -- has been a major issue. He'll likely be locked into a starting role on the wing for the rest of the season, but he could settle in as more of No. 3 option on offense behind Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell (knee), who returned from a 26-game absence Tuesday.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Another 20-plus point outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards registered 27 points (10-23 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal in 41 minutes during Saturday's loss to the 76ers.

The 19-year-old has now scored 20-plus points in five straight games -- a span in which he's averaged 24.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.0 three-pointers and 1.8 steals while shooting 49.5 percent from the field. Before Saturday's game, Edwards was shooting just 39.4 percent from the field, so his recent efficiency is a welcomed sight for fantasy managers. The rookie should continue playing anywhere between 30-40 minutes a game the rest of the way for the last-placed Timberwolves.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Goes for 22 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards delivered 22 points (9-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, three rebounds, two blocks and a steal across 31 minutes in Friday's loss against the Grizzlies.

Edwards filled the stat sheet admirably in Friday's loss and also ended as one of two Minnesota players that recorded more than 20 points. The rookie has looked impressive of late and has scored 20 or more points in four straight games while extending his double-digit scoring streak to 17 appearances, all of them as a starter.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Surpasses 20-point mark once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards finished with 24 points (9-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three assists, three steals, three blocks and two rebounds across 36 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Knicks.

Edwards has scored at least 23 points in three straight games and continues to be a reliable scoring threat for the Timberwolves, netting at least 20 points in nine of his 12 contests following the All-Star break. The rookie is quickly settling in as Minnesota's second-best scoring option despite Malik Beasley's return to the lineup following a recent 12-game suspension, though Edwards' role might decrease when D'Angelo Russell (knee) returns to action, which could happen as early as this weekend.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards had 23 points (9-22 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 10 rebounds and three steals in Monday's loss to the Nets.

The rookie doesn't always shoot the ball efficiently, but he continues to pile up points despite Malik Beasley's return to the starting lineup. Edwards has attempted at least 20 field goals in three of his last four games, and he's topped 20 points eight times since the All-Star break. His 0-of-7 night from downtown snapped a streak of 16 consecutive games with at least one three-pointer.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Drops 27 in loss to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards had 27 points (11-22 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal in Saturday's loss to the Rockets.

Following a 4-of-17 shooting performance Friday night, Edwards bounced back with another high-usage, 20-plus-point outing. The rookie has cranked up his scoring over the last month, and it was encouraging that he still managed 22 field goal attempts, despite Malik Beasley returning from a suspension and playing 30 minutes.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Scores 29 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards collected 29 points (9-22 FG, 3-12 3Pt, 8-9 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one steal in a 128-108 loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday.

Edwards started the second half of the season on fire, averaging 30.6 points in his first five games following the All-Star break. He then scored a total of 27 points in his next two games before getting back on track Wednesday. With LaMelo Ball (wrist) expected to miss at least four weeks, Edwards could make a run at Rookie of the Year honors.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Goes 6-of-16 from field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards had 16 points (6-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three assists and two rebounds in Monday's loss to the Thunder.

After going for 42 points Thursday and posting his first NBA double-double Friday night against the Suns, Edwards came back down to earth with a solid but unspectacular performance in the 112-103 loss. Efficiency will likely remain an issue for Edwards the rest of the way, but his improvement as a scorer has been one of the most fun fantasy storylines of last few weeks. It remains to be seen how his role will be impacted when D'Angelo Russell (knee) and Malik Beasley (suspension) are reintroduced to the rotation, however.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Posts first double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards finished with 11 points (4-18 FG, 3-8 3Pt), 10 boards, six assists, one block and one steal in 36 minutes of a 113-101 loss to Phoenix on Friday.

Edwards had a rough shooting night but still managed to scrape together enough points to record his first career double-double, thanks in part to a new personal-best 10 boards. The rookie had been on a scoring tear until this slight falter due to an off night. He'll return to action against the Thunder on Monday.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Posts career-high 42 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards produced 42 points (15-31 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 8-13 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and two steals across 38 minutes in Thursday's 123-119 win over the Suns.

Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns made up a two-man wrecking ball in a surprise win over the Suns. LaMelo Ball's coronation as Rookie of the Year is far from a foregone conclusion because Edwards has carried this team during D'Angelo Russell and Malik Beasley's absence. Even when these players return, Edwards will continue to provide highlight reel-worthy content for the remainder of the season.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Stays hot Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards scored 29 points (11-22 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT) with four rebounds, one steal and one assist across 38 minutes in Tuesday's 137-121 loss to the Lakers.

One game after scoring a career-high 34 points against Portland, Edwards posted the second-biggest offensive performance of his career in this one. This was the rookie's seventh game of 20-plus points in his last eight contests. Over that stretch, he's averaged 24.5 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.9 three-pointers and 1.8 steals.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Scores career-high 34 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards produced 34 points (12-24 FG, 6-14 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 37 minutes in Sunday's 114-112 win over the Trail Blazers.

Although Edwards left the game briefly after a collision with Enes Kanter, he returned to the game and scored 13 points in the fourth quarter. He put an exclamation point on his performance with a high-flying dunk that added to his lengthy highlight reel. Many speculate that LaMelo Ball has a stranglehold on ROY honors, and while that's probably true, Edwards has been on a nice run over the last few weeks.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Surpasses 20-point mark once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards delivered 21 points (8-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and a steal across 29 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Trail Blazers.

Edwards endured his fair share of growing pains earlier this year but is undoubtedly trending in the right direction, as he has scored 20 or more points in five of his last six games. He is averaging 22.2 points in that span, but his shooting accuracy certainly needs some work since he's making just 39.4 percent of his field-goal attempts -- and 28 percent of his treys -- in that stretch.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Puts up team-high 24 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards recorded a team-high 24 points (8-22 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go with five rebounds, three steals and one assist across 35 minutes Sunday in the Timberwolves' 118-99 loss to the Suns.

With Karl-Anthony Towns surprisingly passive (24.9 percent usage rate), Edwards stepped in to lead the Wolves in shot attempts. The results weren't great from a team standpoint, but Edwards' fantasy managers won't complain, so long as they're content with some rough shooting nights. Edwards has now hit the 20-point mark in three straight games, and he should continue to provide plenty of offense for at least the next three weeks with D'Angelo Russell (knee) sidelined and Anthony Edwards two games into a 12-game suspension.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Continues to struggle with shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards had 21 points (9-22 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, two blocks and a steal across 32 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Wizards.

Edwards has had to experience the growing pains of being a highly touted rookie for a rebuilding franchise, but there's no question he seems to be up to the challenge. The Georgia product recorded at least 20 points in back-to-back games for just the second time this season and has scored in double digits in three of his last four outings. He is averaging 16.0 points per game since moving to the starting lineup on a permanent basis 17 games ago.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Rough shooting night once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards delivered 21 points (7-20 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, six assists and two steals across 37 minutes during Wednesday's overtime loss against the Bulls.

Edwards surpassed the 20-point mark after putting up four straight performances in which he was unable to score more than 12 points as a starter, but shooting woes continue to plague the 2020 draft's No. 1 pick. The Georgia product has scored at least 20 points eight times already, but he's been shooting the ball poorly of late, making just 19 of his 73 field-goal attempts over his past five games -- a brutal 26 percent. On the bright side, he's been chipping in with rebounds, assists and some defensive stats while shooting free throws effectively, and the Wolves project to continue giving him plenty of opportunity to get into a better rhythm from the field.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Struggles with shot again in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards compiled 12 points (3-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists and three rebounds across 32 minutes in Sunday's 103-99 loss to the Knicks.

Edwards has hit a 'rookie wall' in recent days with three sub-par stat lines. Some growing pains are to be expected for young players who are more accustomed to a shorter season, and Edwards will still be given every opportunity to excel in what's quickly becoming yet another rebuilding year for the Timberwolves.

Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Struggles massively from field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards collected seven points (3-14 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot in Friday's loss to Toronto.

Since scoring a career-high 28 points against the Lakers on Tuesday, Edwards has combined to scored only 15 points on 6-of-29 shooting over his subsequent two contests. Such are the ups and downs of a rookie wingman, even one who was nabbed with the first overall pick in the draft. Edwards is averaging 14.6 points per game in his debut campaign, though his 38.4 field-goal conversion rate leaves plenty of room for improvement.
