Fantasy Basketball Playoffs: Carmelo Anthony Saves Best For Last
In Melo’s last four games last week, the former Syracuse standout averaged a video game-like 41.74 points. He completely dominated games and easily had the biggest impact in this round of the fantasy playoffs.
Anthony turned in an unthinkable fantasy basketball stat line last week. He scored 167 total points, which would be enough for fantasy owners, but that wasn’t all he finished the week with.
He also added 33 rebounds, knocked down 14 three-pointers, added six assists, and blocked three shots.
Shockingly, with the amount that Anthony had the ball in his hands, the superstar only turned the ball over six times in four games. Anthony fired up 110 shots last the week, so the fact that he didn’t reach double-digit turnovers was just gravy for fantasy owners.
The performance is even more amazing considering that SF LeBron James missed two games this week and was only able to suit up for one of the Heat’s games. Not many people would have predicted Anthony to score 140 more points than King James in this round of the fantasy playoffs, but he actually did.
Anthony guaranteed his owners a trip to the fantasy finals and the superstar has certainly saved his best for last.
