Fantasy Basketball: PG Kyle Lowry Having Another Productive Season
When fantasy basketball drafts were taking place this fall, not many owners had PG Trevor Lowry of the Toronto Raptors ranked very high. Most thought he would be nothing more than a bench option this year, but the journeyman has ended up having a very strong fantasy campaign.
Lowry is currently posting a career-high 15.7 points per game with the Raptors. He taking 12.1 shots per contest and his strong 42.2% field goal percentage has constantly kept him at the top of the scoring sheet. He has become a fantasy stud since taking over the one-spot in Toronto and he has matured into a very reliable scoring threat.
However, Lowry’s true fantasy value has come from his ability to fill the box score on a nightly basis. Most point guards tend to just add double-digit points with a handful of assists each game, but Lowry has done a little bit of everything for fantasy owners this season. He is adding 7.3 assists per game this year, while also adding a respectable four rebounds and 1.7 steals per game. He is even adding an impressive 2.2 three-pointers to his speculator stat line.
Lowry has become one of the most productive all-around point guards this fantasy season. He has turned out to become an amazing value pick and has quietly put up numbers like a top-10 one-gaurd. If you have the veteran on your roster, don’t expect him to slow down anytime soon.
