Singler scores 14 points with two threes | 04/01/2014 12:00 AM
NewsKyle Singler scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds and one block over 28 minutes on Monday against the Bucks.
ImpactSingler slowed down a bit a week or so ago but he's back to returning mid-round value over the past four games, averaging 13.3 points with 2.0 threes, 3.3 boards, 0.5 steals and 0.8 blocks while hitting 53 percent of his shots. Pick him up.
Kyle Singler scores 18 in 30 minutes | 03/26/2014 11:49 PM
NewsKyle Singler hit 7-of-11 shots and four 3-pointers for 18 points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's loss.
ImpactHe had scored a total of 20 points in his previous three games, so this one sort of came out of nowhere. It's possible he just went through a slump and is ready to get hot again, and he's also hit a 3-pointer in six straight games. As long as he's starting, he's still worth a look in most leagues.
Singler plays 28 minutes on a quiet night | 03/25/2014 1:40 AM
NewsKyle Singler increased his workload to 28 minutes in Monday's win over the Jazz, scoring five points on 2-of-5 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds and one block.
ImpactSingler is in a bit of a tumble but he's still managed to hold onto late-round value over the last two weeks, and over the last four games in which he's fallen to just 26.8 mpg he is still a 14-team value. Jonas Jerebko earned more minutes with a 22-point outing on Saturday but had just seven points and eight rebounds in 24 minutes tonight, so it's unclear if he will continue to take from Singler, who was humming along nicely before the timeshare was upon him.
Kyle Singler watches Jerebko show from bench | 03/23/2014 1:04 AM
NewsKyle Singler started on Saturday but played just 19 minutes to finish with six points and three rebounds on 2-of-7 shooting.
ImpactJonas Jerebko caught fire and finished with 22 points and five 3-pointers for one of the best games of his life and because he was so hot, Singler played his least amount of minutes since Jan. 22. He should bounce back, but it's possible the Pistons give Jerebko more minutes going forward, making this a dicey situation if you need Singler's minutes in a deep league.
Kyle Singler plays 46 minutes vs. Pacers | 03/15/2014 10:56 PM
NewsKyle Singler played 46 minutes and finished with 14 points, six rebounds and two 3-pointers in Saturday's overtime loss to the Pacers.
ImpactSingler's had a nice season and is always worth a look in fantasy, but is a low-end starting option. He had two points on Wednesday, and inconsistency should continue to be an issue with him.
Singler quiet in Wednesday's loss | 03/12/2014 11:24 PM
NewsKyle Singler scored just two points on 1-of-5 shooting with three rebounds and one steal over 28 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.
ImpactSingler has cooled off over the last two weeks but has still returned late round value in that span while sitting at a tidy mid-round return over the last 15 games. With a solid role intact owners should be holding in most cases.
Kyle Singler posts fat line in win over Kings | 03/11/2014 10:41 PM
NewsKyle Singler hit 4-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers on his way to 11 points, seven rebounds, three assists, five steals and a block in Tuesday's win.
ImpactSingler had scored seven or eight points in three of his previous four games, but did it all tonight. He didn't have a single steal in his previous three games, but racked up five of them tonight. He's not as hot as he once was, but is still worth a fantasy look as long as he's starting for the Pistons.
Singler puts up peripherals in low key effort | 03/03/2014 10:47 PM
NewsKyle Singler scored eight points on 3-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in Monday's win over the Knicks.
ImpactThe peripherals here get the job done for owners and it's a good, albeit understated bounce-back from Saturday's quiet effort. Keep rolling with him until further notice.
Kyle Singler's foul trouble costs him on Sat. | 03/01/2014 11:24 PM
NewsKyle Singler picked up two quick fouls against the Rockets during Saturday's 118-110 loss, scoring seven points with two boards, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.
ImpactHe has been a minutes machine for the Pistons and foul trouble kept him down tonight. Singler averaged an impressive 36.5 minutes per game in February to go with averages of 12.6 points, 3.9 boards, 1.2 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.9 triples. If he keeps that up, he'll be a mid-round player in standard formats.
Kyle Singler hits 7-of-8 shots in loss | 02/27/2014 1:33 AM
NewsKyle Singler hit 7-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes of Wednesday's loss to the Spurs.
ImpactThis was another nice outing for Singler against a tough Spurs defense, as he just won't go away. He's averaging 14.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 2.0 3-pointers on 59 percent shooting over his last five games, and has been playing well since February. He should be owned in most leagues due to his starting job and heavy minutes.
Kyle Singler scores 18, stays hot vs. GSW | 02/24/2014 10:26 PM
NewsKyle Singler scored 18 points with three boards, two assists, two blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers in 44 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.
ImpactHis field goal percentage continues to creep up throughout the season and this was his second 7-of-11 shooting in the past three games. Singler also has seven 3-pointers in that span and is becoming more involved in the offense. He's a bit of a low-upside player in standard leagues.
Kyle Singler scores seven in 34 minutes | 02/22/2014 11:05 PM
NewsKyle Singler made another start and played 34 minutes on Saturday, finishing with seven points, five rebounds, two assists, three steals and a 3-pointer on 3-of-8 shooting.
ImpactAs long as he's starting and getting more than 30 minutes a night, Singler will be worth hanging onto in most leagues. even if he's not scoring in bunches on most nights.
Kyle Singler hits big shot, drops 20 points | 02/22/2014 1:45 AM
NewsKyle Singler hit a dagger 3-pointer in the corner during Friday's 115-107 win over the Hawks, finishing with 20 points, two boards, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.
ImpactHe's been in double-figure scoring in nine of his previous 10, averaging 11.6 points, 4.0 boards, 1.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.8 triples. He's getting more looks from deep and it's pushed his value to late-round territory in standards. He's getting better and could continue to do so, which means he's worth a look in standard leagues.
Kyle Singler quiet in loss to Bobcats | 02/19/2014 9:30 PM
NewsKyle Singler made another start and played 29 minutes on Wednesday, but had just 10 points, one steal and two 3-pointers on 3-of-8 shooting.
ImpactSingler had been getting 40 minutes a night, but saw his minutes take a bit of a fall tonight. There's nothing wrong with 29 minutes though, and as long as he continues to start, he should be better than this on most nights.
Kyle Singler plays 40 minutes again for DET | 02/18/2014 11:33 PM
NewsKyle Singler made another start and played 40 minutes on his way to 13 points, two rebounds, three assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss.
ImpactHe's basically getting 40 minutes a night for the Pistons is showing no signs of slowing down. As long as he holds the starting SG job in Detroit, he should be owned in most fantasy leagues.
Kyle Singler plays 41 minutes in loss | 02/13/2014 12:28 AM
NewsKyle Singler played a whopping 41 minutes on Wednesday and hit 2-of-9 shots for 12 points, seven rebounds and one assist in a loss to Cleveland.
ImpactHe continues to start at shooting guard for the Pistons and with all the minutes he's getting, he deserves a look in most leagues. He's scored in double digits in five straight games and is averaging 11.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.8 3-pointers over that stretch. If he's still starting after the All-Star break, feel free to roll with him if you need an SG. He should shoot it better than this on most nights.
Kyle Singler still starting at shooting guard | 02/11/2014 6:16 AM
NewsKyle Singler made another start at shooting guard on Monday and finished with 10 points, six boards, two steals and two 3-pointers on 3-of-11 shooting.
ImpactHe's not exactly a must-own player, but if you're in a deeper league and he continues to hold down the job, he's probably going to be worth owning. He's averaging 9.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.8 3-pointers in 36 minutes over his last five games.
Kyle Singler starts at SG under coach Loyer | 02/10/2014 11:56 AM
NewsPistons interim head coach John Loyer will maintain a starting lineup of Brandon Jennings, Kyle Singler, Josh Smith, Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond.
Keith Langlois on Twitter
ImpactDetroit has a 7-7 record in recent weeks and they're coming off a two-game win streak under ousted coach Mo Cheeks, so it makes sense for Loyer to keep the ship steady as he takes the helm. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Rodney Stuckey are both candidates to overtake Singler at SG eventually, but it seems his starting job is safe until the All-Star break, at least.
Kyle Singler scores 10 in win over Denver | 02/08/2014 11:17 PM
NewsKyle Singler hit 4-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, three rebounds and one assist in another start on Saturday.
ImpactHe played a whopping 46 minutes in his third straight start, and while his numbers weren't great, the minutes were. Over his last three games he's averaging 12.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.3 3-pointers. As long as he's starting for the Pistons, he's worth a look in your fantasy league. He probably would have been better tonight, but Brandon Jennings, Andre Drummond and Josh Smith all went nuts for the Pistons.
Pistons' SG spot a 'game-to game situation' | 02/08/2014 10:03 AM
NewsPistons coach Mo Cheeks suggested that his decision who to start at shooting guard "could be a game-to-game situation."
ImpactThat doesn't bode well for Kyle Singler's outlook, though for now he's worth considering as a pickup thanks to averages of 16.3 points, 2.3 triples, 2.7 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.3 blocks in three starts. Those splits are almost certainly unsustainable, but Singler has enough upside to be owned while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is pinned to the bench.
Singler scores 16 points in blowout win | 02/08/2014 12:57 AM
NewsKyle Singler started at shooting guard for the second straight game and scored 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds, three steals and two blocks over 39 minutes in Friday's blowout win over the Nets.
ImpactSingler hit three triples for 11 points, one steal and one block in 32 minutes on Wednesday, and he has become a sneaky mid-round value over his last six games. Over that span he has averaged 32.5 minutes, 11.7 points, 1.8 threes, 4.5 boards, 1.5 steals, and 0.8 blocks. Since it looks like he has stepped into a starter's role there are plenty of reasons to add him, but owners should know his defensive stats are very high compared to career numbers. His role could also be threatened if Kentavious Caldwell-Pope can crawl out from underneath his rock.

Keith Langlois on Twitter
ImpactCoach Mo Cheeks has really soured on Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, which isn't a surprise since he wasn't expected to be a part of the rotation to start the year. Singler played well in his 32 minutes of action on Wednesday, but he's still not quite worthy of starting in most leagues with his low usage rate.
Kyle Singler scores 11 w/ three 3s in start | 02/05/2014 10:37 PM
NewsKyle Singler replaced struggling rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in the starting lineup on Wednesday and hit 3-of-5 shots (all 3-pointers) for 11 points, a steal and a block in 32 minutes.
ImpactIf Singler sticks in the starting five he might be worth an add by owners in need of 3-pointers, but it's hard to see him becoming an offensive force either way.

NewsKyle Singler will start at shooting guard against the Magic on Wednesday.
Keith Langlois on Twitter
ImpactKentavious Caldwell-Pope will move to the bench after playing just eight minutes on Monday night. KCP has been playing some sub-par ball lately and is still expected to come off the bench. As for Singler, he'll be making his second start of the season overall and his first start at shooting guard. He has a somewhat low usage rate and it's not going to get any better with the first unit. He's only an option in deeper leagues.
Kyle Singler gets hot after Stuckey's exit | 02/01/2014 10:58 PM
NewsKyle Singler hit 6-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers for 20 points, 10 rebounds, a steal and a block off the bench in Saturday's win.
ImpactHe benefitted by Rodney Stuckey leaving after just nine minutes due to dizziness, while the Sixers' defense is historically bad. Singler is worth keeping an eye on, but as long as Stuckey's condition isn't serious, probably isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Kyle Singler scores 16 points vs. Sixers | 01/10/2014 10:32 PM
NewsKyle Singler saw some extra playing time against the Sixers on Friday, playing 36 minutes for 16 points, eight boards, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.
ImpactCoach Mo Cheeks messed around with his rotation tonight and used a little more of Singler at both spots on the wing. He has been up and down for most of the season, but fantasy owners in deeper leagues can give him a look for some low-end production.

Kyle Singler dealing with eye issues | 11/27/2013 5:32 PM
NewsKyle Singler dealt with eye irritation issues on Monday and is good to go for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.
Keith Langlois on Twitter
ImpactHe played just three minutes on Monday due to the issue. Singler is running with the second unit and hasn't done much this season outside of his one start while Josh Smith was being punished for missing shootaround last Friday, averaging 6.2 points in his 13 games off the bench.
Kyle Singler scores 11 points vs. BK | 11/24/2013 5:58 PM
NewsKyle Singler came back to Earth on Sunday with 11 points, six boards, one block and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.
ImpactHe scored 22 points on Friday thanks to the team punishing Josh Smith, so today's dropoff is far from surprising. Singler doesn't have much upside and is only worth owning in extremely deep leagues.

NewsKyle Singler scored a season-high 22 points in a start at small forward on Friday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes.
ImpactHe was placed into the starting lineup with Josh Smith getting punished for missing practice. Singler maximized his chance tonight, but he's had his blips on the radar before. We'd need to see it again before suggesting picking him up in standard leagues.
Kyle Singler plays well in start for Smith | 10/22/2013 10:42 PM
NewsKyle Singler started at small forward Tuesday with Josh Smith resting, and had 14 points, four rebounds, a steal and three 3-pointers on 5-of-10 shooting.
ImpactIt sounds like the plan is for the Pistons to start Chauncey Billups at shooting guard, which will leave Singler coming off the bench. And while he'll have some decent games off the bench, he'll likely be too inconsistent to be relied upon in fantasy.

Vincent Goodwill on Twitter
ImpactCoach Maurice Cheeks said his starting shooting guard for opening night will be either Rodney Stuckey or Chauncey Billups, so this is a somewhat surprising move. This is more of an experiment, but getting Singler minutes at shooting guard could help him gain value in deeper formats.
Kyle Singler figures to get minutes with DET | 08/12/2013 11:40 AM
NewsPistons assistant general manager George David said Kyle Singler will still have a "significant role" with the Pistons this upcoming season.
Impact"I think he definitely will have a significant role," David said. "There's always a place for a guy who brings what Kyle Singler does. As far as his role with this specific team, that plays itself out as it does every year." The Pistons drafting a shooting guard in Kentavius Caldwell-Pope while adding Josh Smith and Chauncey Billups via free agency doesn't bode well for Singler. He won't be worth drafting in most leagues.

NewsKyle Singler has weight-training goals for the offseason.
ImpactSingler is expected to work on his game in all areas and there should be "improvements in all aspects," according to strength and conditioning coach Arnie Kander. Singler will also work on his stamina and conditioning before he enters his sophomore season.
Kyle Singler gets off for 18 points | 03/22/2013 11:18 PM
NewsKyle Singler had 18 points, eight rebounds and two 3-pointers in Friday's loss to the Heat.
ImpactOnce a week, Singler seems to gets in the flow of the offense and score in double figures. That's what happens when you're the starting small forward on a bad team and play 27-29 minutes every night. There's just no fantasy upside because Singler doesn't help in any other categories when he's not scoring.
Kyle Singler scores 17 in loss to Warriors | 03/14/2013 2:24 AM
NewsKyle Singler hit 8-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, four rebounds and an assist in a loss to the Warriors on Wednesday.
ImpactSingler had scored 5, 6 and 9 points in his previous three games, so despite the fact he's starting for the Pistons, he's far from a reliable fantasy option at this point.

Kyle Singler scores 14 points in 36 minutes | 02/09/2013 1:45 AM
NewsKyle Singler scored 14 points with seven rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes during Friday's surprising 119-109 win over the Spurs.
ImpactThe 119 points were a season-high for points in regulation for Detroit and they shot 51.7 percent from the field and 45.5 percent from downtown. Singler has been inconsistent since he was thrust into a bigger role with Tayshaun Prince out of town, so he's not quite in the discussion for standard leagues just yet.
Kyle Singler takes a hit on Monday | 02/05/2013 12:16 AM
NewsKyle Singler played just 25 minutes against the Knicks on Monday, scoring five points with two boards, one assist and one 3-pointer.
ImpactHe played 40 minutes on Sunday, but Jose Calderon making his debut shifted Brandon Knight (five points and two assists on 2-of-10 shooting in 28 minutes) and Rodney Stuckey (14 points, seven boards, four assists and three steals in 30 minutes) to get more minutes at shooting guard. Both Stuckey and Knight look to be better assets in standard leagues than Singler.
Kyle Singler plays 40 minutes in tough defeat | 02/03/2013 4:48 PM
NewsKyle Singler had 11 points and six rebounds vs. the Lakers on Sunday, while playing a team-high 40 minutes.
ImpactSingler shot just 4-of-12 but he made two 3-pointers and seems to have stumbled into heavy minutes at SF in the wake of Detroit's recent trade. Jonas Jerebko scored five points in 10 minutes but he's ill-equipped to defend the SF position, and Singler makes a nice low-end pickup in eight-and nine-cat leagues.
Singler scores 20 points against the Cavs | 02/02/2013 2:03 AM
NewsKyle Singler scored 20 points on 9-of-17 shooting (including a three) with eight rebounds, two steals, and three blocks in 37 minutes on Friday against the Cavs.
ImpactSingler put up good defensive numbers but was otherwise pedestrian in his first start at SF, but against a bad Cavs team he was able to get loose tonight. Jose Calderon's insertion into the lineup should help Singler in many ways, but it will necessarily take the ball out his hands and tonight's touches will probably be the exception and not the rule. Still, after a night like this he's worth a look.
Kyle Singler struggles in start at SF | 01/30/2013 11:48 PM
NewsKyle Singler started at small forward on Wednesday and had five points, four rebounds, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer on 2-of-6 shooting in 30 minutes.
ImpactNew position, more of the same lackluster production. Singler may stick as the starting small forward going forward, as the Pistons just don't have many options with Corey Maggette out of the rotation with hamstrings made of spaghetti, but we don't foresee a big boost to his value either way.
Kyle Singler could move to small forward | 01/30/2013 8:23 PM
NewsKyle Singler started at small forward on Wednesday, the day that Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye were tentatively traded to the Grizzlies, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him stay there.
ImpactSingler's value wouldn't change much, and he really wasn't worth owning as a starting SG. He'll be worth keeping an eye on either way, but the potential position change shouldn't have a big impact on him, unless he ends up coming off the bench at either position.
Kyle Singler's game falling off of late | 01/11/2013 10:49 AM
NewsKyle Singler has not been playing well recently, averaging just 6.9 points on 35 percent shooting over 19 games since November.
ImpactFurther, Singler is shooting just 25 percent from 3-point range. Singler continues to start, but he's played less than 20 minutes in consecutive games now. "It's an adjustment," Lawrence Frank said. He's really not an option in standard formats.
