Schroder led the LeBron-less Lakers with 28 points on Wednesday night. He also played a pivotal role in the facilitation of the ball with a team-high nine assists. The need to fill the absence left by King James was immediate and the extra burden only accelerated Schroder's output. His 46.3 fantasy points (DraftKings) were his highest over his last ten games.
Dennis Schroder posted 17 points (6-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six assists, three rebounds and one block across 38 minutes on Tuesday.
Schroder's 38 minutes on Tuesday led his team during a mostly frustrating contest at Staples Center. He also managed to co-lead his team in assists on the evening with LeBron James as the two combined for the lion's share of production for Los Angeles. The guard has been mostly solid since returning for LA, averaging 17 points, 4.6 assists and three rebounds per game. Tuesday's outing netted him 31.3 fantasy points (DraftKings). The Lakers will return to action on the road against Sacramento on Wednesday.
Dennis Schroder bagged 12 points (3-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six assists, three rebounds and one steal across 25 minutes on Sunday against the Warriors.
Schroder had himself a hot and cold night as the Lakers handedly beat Golden State on Sunday. He didn't shoot the ball particularly well but collected a healthy assist total. Additionally, he reached the line seven times but produced four turnovers. All and all, Schroder was surprisingly average on a night where the Lakers were highly proficient. The point-guard managed to record 23.6 fantasy points on Sunday (FanDuel). The Lakers will host the Suns on Tuesday.
Dennis Schroder notched 22 points (6-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 9-9 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in a 102-93 win over Portland.
Schroder's recent stint on the injury report due to the health and safety protocols didn't seem to have any lingering effects as the point-guard strung together an impressive return on Friday. His 22 points trailed only LeBron James for Los Angeles. Ideally, managers expect higher assist and rebound totals out of the scrappy guard but considering this was his return to action, you'd be hard pressed to find a manager disappointed by Schroder's 30.3 fantasy points (DraftKings).
Lakers guard Dennis Schroder (health and safety protocols) is starting in Friday's matchup against the Trail Blazers.
Some of his teammates will join Schroder playing tonight, who were on the injury report earlier this week. Nonetheless, he will likely see more usage than usual with Anthony Davis still out.
