O.G. Anunoby totaled 10 points (4-12 FG, 2-6 3PT), three rebounds, and two assists in the Raptors’ 115-103 loss to the Nets.
Anunoby scored 10.0 points in the Raptors’ loss to the Nets, putting together another underwhelming performance. Since his impressive start to the season and his 26.0-point outburst against the Bulls on November 24th, Anunoby hasn’t consistently demonstrated the upside and level of production that makes him an impactful multi-categorical contributor. There may be more ups and downs concerning the composition and level of his production, but he should have some months with a few production tears this season. Although he is a must-roster fantasy asset in most season-long leagues, he may not be as easily deployed night in and night out. Be diligent in understanding the matchups and your production needs to ensure you maximize his contribution to your advantage. Anunoby may not be a viable option in daily formats given his inconsistency and inflated price point; however, his upside could produce some worthwhile contrarian value if you find that he is in a plus-matchup on the slate. He has a usage rate of 18.8 percent, a plus-minus of 3.3, and is averaging 32.0 minutes, 15.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.6 blocks per game while shooting 47.3 percent from the floor and 40.4 percent from beyond the arc.
