Description: The Timberwolves have acquired Thaddeus Young as part of a three-team trade with Cleveland and Philadelphia.
Insight: Minnesota did a good job to get Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Young for Kevin Love, who made it known that he was leaving in free agency anyway. Young was an underrated fantasy option last season, averaging 17.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.1 threes, 2.1 steals (third in the NBA) and 0.5 blocks per game. He'll start for the 'Wolves and should be the top offensive option as the team tries to replace Love's 26.1 points and 12.5 rebounds per game.
 
Hot3/22/2014 10:37:00 PM
Description: With 28 points Saturday at Chicago, Philadelphia forward Thaddeus Young had his sixth straight contest with at least 20 points.
Insight: The 76ers have something in common with fantasy owners: both don't care about wins and losses. Young has produced 21.5 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 3.8 apg, 2.7 spg and 1.7 3pg in 15 games since the team traded Spencer Hawes and Evan Turner at the trade deadline. Of course, the Sixers have compiled 24 straight losses.
 
3/15/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia forward Thad Young had another brilliant outing Saturday against Memphis (20 points, seven rebounds, six steals).
Insight: Of course, the result was the same as the Sixers lost for the 20th time in a row. The four three-pointers Young hit were his most since December 28th against Phoenix. It doesn't get any easier for the Sixers as their next game is Monday against the conference-leading Pacers.
 
Hot3/14/2014 9:50:00 PM
Description: Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young has averaged 20.6 ppg, 5.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.6 steals in 10 games since the trade deadline.
Insight: The 76ers traded Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen at the deadline, leaving Young as one of the only competent players left on the roster. He has taken advantage of the larger role. In 45 minutes Friday against the Pacers, Young had 25 points, 10 assists, six rebounds and three steals.
 
Hot3/2/2014 8:43:00 PM
Description: Over his last five games, 76ers forward Thaddeus Young has averaged 24.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 4.0 steals and 1.6 threes.
Insight: Young had 29 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three triples and two steals Sunday at Orlando. He ranks third in the NBA with 2.2 steals per game this season.
 
Hot2/24/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: The Sixers keep losing, but that hasn't stopped Thaddeus Young from putting up great numbers. He was brilliant again Monday in a loss to Milwaukee.
Insight: Young shot his way to 28 points in 34 minutes of court time. He also contributed seven assists, six steals and five rebounds. Young (17.5 ppg) is having his best season and needs to be starting in all formats.
 
2/21/2014 9:52:00 PM
Description: Sixers forward Thad Young had a night for the ages Friday against Dallas.
Insight: The Sixers still lost but at least this one was somewhat close (124-112). According to ESPN Stats and Information, Young is the first player to record at least 30 points, 13 rebounds, six assists and seven steals in a game since Hakeem Olajuwon did it in March of 1987. Young has another juicy matchup waiting for him Monday against the Bucks.
 
2/18/2014 10:09:00 PM
Description: The 76ers fell short again Tuesday against Cleveland. Don't point a finger at Thaddeus Young though. He finished with 15 points and nine rebounds.
Insight: Even with Philadelphia in complete disarray, Young continues to be a force in fantasy. Young and the struggling Sixers have a few days to regroup ahead of Friday's matchup with Dallas.
 
Hot1/31/2014 10:33:00 PM
Description: Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young closed out January with 29 points, eight rebounds, five steals and three triples Friday against Atlanta.
Insight: Young averaged 3.1 steals per game in January to go with 17.5 points and 5.5 rebounds.
 
Hot1/25/2014 10:35:00 PM
Description: Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young flirted with a triple-double Saturday against the Thunder.
Insight: Young had 13 points, 10 rebounds and eight steals in the loss. After averaging 25.6 points on .559 shooting from Dec. 20 to Jan. 6, Young has cooled off considerably with just 13.6 ppg on .379 shooting his last 10 games. However, he has kept his fantasy value high by picking up 3.4 thefts per game in his last eight contests.
 
Hot1/4/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young has averaged 25.8 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 3.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.2 threes over his last six games.
Insight: Young reportedly requested a trade in late December and his trade value is at an all-time high. The same goes for his fantasy value. Young is averaging a career-high 17.9 ppg as well as 7.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.7 steals. He's added 3-point range to his arsenal this season, hitting 41.2 percent of his 2.3 attempts per game after making 33.2 percent on 0.8 attempts his first six seasons.
 
Hot12/29/2013 10:24:00 AM
Description: Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young turned in a second consecutive 30 point/10 rebound outing Saturday in a loss at Phoenix.
Insight: Young made headlines about a week ago when it was reported he had requested a trade. Young later refuted the claim and has now scored 25 or more in each of his last three contests. Fantasy owners can't afford to sit Young while he's this hot. Make sure he's in your lineup Sunday against the Lakers.
 
12/19/2013 4:56:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia forward Thaddeus Young has requested a trade from the 76ers, according to SB Nation's libertyballers.com.
Insight: Young actually submitted a formal trade request weeks ago. "Thad is ready to leave Philly," a source close to Young said. "He isn't with the whole tanking thing." Young is averaging 33 minutes, 15.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game this season but his playing time may dip depending on where he lands.
 
12/7/2013 7:49:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia power forward Thaddeus Young is playing Saturday versus Denver. SOURCE: Tom Moore, Bucks County Courier Times
Insight: Young was a game-time call because of a sore glute muscle. He's averaging almost 16 ppg this season. Lavoy Allen would see most of the playing time at the four if Young were to get re-injured.
 
11/29/2013 7:00:00 PM
Description: Sixers forward Thaddeus Young will return to the starting lineup after coming off the bench on Wednesday. SOURCE: Tom Moore, Bucks County Courier Times
Insight: He was terrific Wednesday after missing three games for personal reasons (26 points on 9-of-15 shooting). He's averaging 32.1 mpg this season and should see at least that much playing time against the Pelicans on Friday night.
 
11/27/2013 9:19:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia forward Thaddeus Young played 28 minutes off the bench and had 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting with eight rebounds in his return to the lineup Wednesday at Orlando.
Insight: Young had missed the Sixers' previous three games while dealing with a personal issue, and coach Brett Brown opted to bring him off the bench. Young made 2-3 from 3-point range this season but has just seven makes on 18 attempts in 13 games.
 
11/27/2013 3:17:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia forward Thaddeus Young will return to the lineup on Wednesday but he may not start. SOURCE: Josh Robbins, Orlando Sentinel
Insight: Apparently head coach Brett Brown is leaning toward bringing him off the bench. Young had missed the Sixers' previous three games while dealing with a personal issue.
 
11/23/2013 6:56:00 PM
Description: Sixers forward Thaddeus Young won't participate in Saturday's game against Indiana. SOURCE: Keith Pompey, Philadelphia Inquirer
Insight: He's out for personal reasons. Daniel Orton will be getting the start at power forward. Philadelphia's next game isn't until Wednesday against Orlando.
 
11/22/2013 5:39:00 PM

Insight: Young is averaging 14.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game this season. Sixers coach Brett Brown said the team will give Young "time and space, and are here when he is ready to return."
 
11/22/2013 10:50:00 AM
Description: Sixers forward Thaddeus Young missed Wednesday's game for personal reasons and is questionable for Friday's game against Milwaukee.
Insight: Young is averaging 14.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game this season. Daniel Orton would likely start in his place. Orton had six points and six rebound as a starter on Wednesday.
