Fantasy Basketball: Tyson Chandler is Dominating the Fantasy Glass

Over the past several seasons, New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler has become an amazing rebounder for fantasy basketball owners.

Chandler has become an extremely consistent fantasy center and has thrived since heading to NYC. He may have posted a rather meager 11.1 points over his last ten games, but his true fantasy value has come from his ridiculous 14.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks during this stretch. These are outstanding stats for any fantasy center.

Chandler has missed some time recently with an illness, but with 75% of the country getting sick it was only a matter of time until a couple NBA stars joined the party. Regardless, he is already back in the lineup, so fantasy owners need not worry anymore.

The center also rarely turns the ball over. He is only averaging 1.3 turnovers per game this season, and not turning the ball over is an incredibly undervalued fantasy stat to keep tabs on.

Chandler is shooting a miserable 68.1 percent from the charity stripe. However, most big men shoot miserably from the line anyway, and Chandler certainly is not the worst in the game from the line. He is shooting a rather respectable 67.3 percent from the floor, and Chandler may be the first fantasy player ever to record a better field goal percentage than free throw percentage.

Regardless of Chandler’s obvious woes from the charity stripe, he is still an elite fantasy basketball center. He scores double-digit points and has the ability to grab 20 rebounds in any given game.

Chandler will continue to post amazing numbers game after game, and will be a starting option in every fantasy format moving forward.
