F - MIN
Jake Layman contributed 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3PT), four boards, four assists, one block, and three turnovers in Sunday night's blowout loss to the Suns.
After two straight DNP-CDs and scoring a combined 12 points across his previous four games, Layman had a solid all-around effort tonight, despite the loss. His 30 minutes of playing time accounted for a season-high as well. Layman should still remain on the waiver wire, but fantasy managers in deeper leagues need to monitor him in case coach Chris Finch decides to ramp up his minutes.
Jake Layman contributed 16 points (6-9 FG, 2-5 3PT, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, one assist, and five steals in Saturday's loss to the Thunder.
Layman has now scored in double-figures in each of his last three games. In addition, his five steals accounted for a career-high. However, Layman is only worth picking up if the Wolves are ravaged with injuries, as he simply doesn't see enough action on the court.
Jake Layman totaled two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3PT, 0-0 FT), two rebounds, and one assist in 14 minutes in the Timberwolves’ 115-108 victory over the Bulls on Wednesday.
Layman continued to be “lame-man” (see what I did there), as his struggles continued against the Bulls this past Wednesday. After putting up his worse performance of the year against the Pelicans, he didn’t fare much better in this contest, taking a total of three shots and putting up minimal action on the boards. The chance of better days based on his earlier play this season is dwindling quickly; however, you never know what can happen. He is a definite fade in all formats, at this time.
Jake Layman totaled two points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-2 FT) in 14 minutes in the Timberwolves’ 139-134 victory over the Pelicans on Tuesday.
Layman put up his worse game of the year as he went zero percent from the floor and zero percent from beyond the arc; he also failed to contribute anything to the other statistical categories. Outside of his two made free-throws, he ultimately contributed nothing to the Timberwolves cause on a night in which almost every player was able to “eat.” Although he has been playing on limited minutes, Layman has failed to show any level of improved and sustained production. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look good for the former second-rounder out of Maryland, as he may find himself on the outside looking in if he isn’t able to get back to form. He has shown himself to be a productive player in the past; however, it would be best to fade him at this time, in all formats, until further notice.
Jake Layman totaled six points (2-7 FG, 1-2 3PT, 1-2 FT) and two rebounds in 15 minutes in the Timberwolves’ 111-91 loss to the Mavericks on Sunday.
Layman was still in search of his game this past Sunday against the Mavericks. He didn’t do much in the area of scoring and put up minimal stats in other performance categories, which led to an overall disappointing affair. Although there is potential for consistent value from Layman, it would be best to avoid him in all formats at this time.
