Trey Murphy III cans four threes against Lakers

Trey Murphy III scored 21 points (7-12 FG, 4-9 3PT, 3-3 FT) and secured five rebounds in New Orleans' win on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Murphy hit two massive threes that propelled the Pelicans to a win against LA. His 21 points were his most since Dec. 28. Murphy is at his best when he plays off of New Orleans' stars, but he's far from a lock for nailing four treys every night. His fantasy potential is capped at high-volume catch-and-shoot three-point attempts. The sophomore forward is averaging 12.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 5.4 3PA per game on 48/39/92.6 shooting splits.

Trey Murphy III nets an inefficient 10 Saturday

Trey Murphy III scored 10 points (4-11 FG, 1-5 3PT, 1-1 FT), snagged two rebounds, and blocked two shots in the Pelicans' loss to the Wizards.

Fantasy Impact

Murphy has fallen back to earth after a solid six-game stretch that included five games of at least 15 points on at least 50% shooting. Saturday marked the third straight game where Murphy shot 40% or less from the field. Murphy's January has been his second-worst career month in terms of his 3PT% at 31.3%. The guard shouldn't be viewed by fantasy managers as a player with great scoring upside despite his respectable 5.4 3PA per game.

Trey Murphy III scores 17 against Cavaliers

Trey Murphy III recorded an efficient 17 (7-14 FG, 3-6 3PT) points in 33 minutes in Monday's loss to the Cavs.

Fantasy Impact

After Monday's performance, Murphy has put together three solid performances of at least 15 points and 50% shooting. He certainly needed it after a week-long funk in which he cracked double figures on 50% shooting or better just twice (five games). Murphy remains a streaky fantasy play.

Trey Murphy III scores 15, steals three against Celtics

Trey Murphy III recorded 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-4 3PT), six rebounds, and three steals in Wednesday night's loss.

Fantasy Impact

Murphy's outing against Boston was his best and most efficient in nearly two weeks. His January scoring, rebounding, and assist averages, and his shooting splits are all season-lows for a month since the season began. In the wake of major team injuries, Murphy is being asked to take on considerably more ball-handling work -- and it's clearly not his strong suit.

Trey Murphy III drops 14 in win

Trey Murphy III recorded 14 points (5-13 FG, 2-8 3PT, 2-2 FT), an assist, and a block in 29 minutes on Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact

Outside of CJ McCollum and Jonas Valanciunas, Murphy is who the Pelicans need to step up with both Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson out. Murphy is a phenomenal young shooter with plenty of room to grow as a dribble-drive threat. While his efficiency may wane with the Pelican stars sidelined, expect Murphy to see a considerable increase in shooting volume.
