As usual, here's our preferred Raptors pick for the week, just in case you want to have some rooting interest in your fantasy lineup:
Kyle Lowry ($9,100)
Since the All-Star Break, very few Raptors have been consistent enough to count on in your fantasy lineup. Thankfully, Lowry is such a stud night in and night out that you can always feel comfortable picking him up at any given time. He has averaged a whopping 50.3 fantasy points per game (FPPG) over his last four on the strength of 29.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 7.8 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.3 blocks, and 2.3 turnovers per contest. The last time he faced Portland on February 4th, he dropped 30 points, six boards, eight helpers, two steals, and two blocks, which was good enough for a meaty 50.2 fantasy points, despite the uncharacteristic seven turnovers. You know what to do.
Now, let's head on down to the comment section and construct ourselves some winning lineups!
