Minnesota Timberwolves DFS Notes
Karl-Anthony Towns notched a 26-point, 11-rebound double-double in Sunday's 119-99 win over the Warriors. KAT uncharacteristically missed two of his freebies, finishing 3-of-5 at the stripe, but he was also 11-of-20 from the floor and added one assist, one 3-pointer, two swats and just one turnover in his 30 minutes of floor time. He's been on a monster run over the past six, posting ridiculous averages of 25.5 points, 10.2 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.5 triples, 1.2 steals and 1.7 swats per contest on 57.3% shooting, which has him ranked inside the top-5 in fantasy hoops.
New York Knicks DFS Notes
RJ Barrett notched an 18-point, 12-rebound double-double on Monday, to go with five assists, two triples and two steals through 39 minutes of floor time in a loss to the Hornets. Barrett has played really well over his past 10 games, posting averages of 23.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.3 triples, 0.9 steals and 2.4 turnovers per contest on 46.2% shooting from the field and 69% at the stripe on 5.8 FTA, which has been good enough for top-90 value if you’re punting FT. This was Barrett’s third double-double of the season, but unfortunately, he also matched his career-high with six turnovers in the loss.
