Fantasy Basketball: Stephen Curry Living Up To Hype
Curry is currently posting an absolutely amazing stat line. He is averaging 23.1 points per game to go along with an amazing 9.4 assists, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.9 steals per game. He is taking 18.2 field goal attempts per game, which is staggering from someone occupying the point guard position. He is also shooting 44 % from the field and 88.9 % from the charity stripe as well. He is producing like one of the best players in all of fantasy.
There has been a lot of attention lately on Curry’s increasing turnover total and three-point percentage, though. Curry has averaged 5.9 turnovers over the last eight contests and fantasy owners have had a difficult time looking at his numbers on the far right of the box score.
The former Davidson standout has also had a much tougher time hitting triples recently as well. He is dropping an impressive 3.1 triples per game, but he is attempting 8.1 shots from behind the arc per contest. He is shooting a miserable 38.9 % from the perimeter, which is well below his 45.3 % from last season.
Regardless of his minor struggles, Curry is still one superstar that has actually lived up to his hype this fantasy season. He has put together All-Star numbers night after night, and more importantly, has been able to stay healthy. There have been plenty of early round picks from this year’s draft that have gone down for the count lately and Curry is one star that has been able to produce on a nightly basis.
