• Karl-Anthony Towns
    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Teammates have made note of the big changes Karl-Anthony Towns has made in becoming more of a leader, including being more vocal both on and off the court.

    “I’ll say for one, he’s definitely more confident,” said teammate Josh Okogie, “Last year, it was kind of like, especially the start of the season with Jimmy — it was him and Jimmy. And then when Jimmy left, I don’t want to say he wasn’t ready, but that confidence that I’ve seen now wasn’t there. Now, he’s more vocal.” Others discussed how Towns' embracing of leadership have made them stronger in late-game situations as well. It's been an impeccable start for Towns, whose play has help vaulted the Wolves to 2-0. He has a great chance of ending the season as the number one player in fantasy, especially if he continues to keep the Wolves in contention.
