Karl-Anthony Towns collected another double-double on Sunday with 15 points and 12 boards on 6-of-13 shooting to go with two 3-pointers and a steal.
He’s leading the league in double-doubles with 18 right now and he’s been efficient and consistent for owners. The blocks have gone down over his past two seasons and if you’re watching Wolves games you can see that Towns looks disinterested or just lazy on defense at times which is resulting in the lower swats. He lost DeAndre Jordan twice in crunch time and gave up easy layups and it’s surprising to see him still making these low effort plays on defense during his second year with Coach Thibodeau. That’s just the reality of it, on the fantasy side owners can sleep with ease as Towns is the no. 8 player in 9-cat leagues with some upside to crack the top-5.
