How do you put up the number one overall fantasy line for the week? It didn’t hurt Chris Paul, to have a 41 point, 5 three, 4 rebound, 17 assist, 4 steals, and 61% and 100% with only 1 TO. Over his 4 games last week Paul totaled 50 assists and only 5 TOs. A 10:1 assist/TO ratio is unreal.

Kawhi Leonard put up the second best overall line in Week #23 by averaging 19.5 points, 1.5 threes, 5.8 boards, 2.8 assists, 3.5 steals, .75 blocks, and 62%, and 83% .75 TOs in 4 games last week. The crazy part is he did it in only 26.2 m/g which is insane.

Deron Williams for once is actually putting up first round value. In 32 minutes per game and over a 4 game stretch he averaged 19.5 points, 3 threes, 4.5 rebounds, 7.75 assists, .75 steals, zero blocks and 1.5 TOs all while shooting 54.7% from the floor and 88.9% from the line.


Russell Westbrook put up some massive counting stats in 3 games last week, but the 33% FG% on 27 attempts per game (yeah you read that right) and even the 74% FT% and 5 TOs per game were massive category drains. 29.7 points is good obviously, but not on 27 FGA and 13 FTA. The almost triple double average (29.7 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 10.3 assists) probably helped a decent amount of guys, but the 15th round rank isn’t fantastic for a guy who’d you like to always be a first rounder.

Stephen Curry didn’t have a big of a drop as Westbrook, but once again having your first rounder produce third round value during the playoffs isn’t ideal. Curry is kind of an odd point guard because despite gaudy assist numbers he’s not really a pass first PG and the 4.5 and .75 steals didn’t help out anyone. The good news was he still scored 22.5 points per game and hit 4 threes per.

Pau Gasol has made the list a few times and as I’ve mentioned it is a bit greedy. He’s already paid pretty big dividends and he did average 17.3 points and 10 boards, but the .3 blocks 66% FT% and 2.7 assists to 2.0 TOs isn’t so hot.
