Adrian Benjamins and Neil Rochlani break down the ten games from Wednesday night. Karl-Anthony Towns headline a busy fantasy night. Many other strong performances include: George, Westbrook, Leonard, Curry, Davis and James. Expect Bazemore to…

Karl-Anthony Towns dropped 31 points on Monday against the Warriors with 11 boards, four assists and a block but ultimately fell short in the 108-116 loss.
Towns is as solid as they get in the fantasy space. He's a bit boring to own and has a bit of the Tim Duncan vibe. That said the boy can hoop, and he will continue to deliver tasty lines all season long. It doesn't hurt that he hasn't missed a game in his career. He's a top-10 per game asset and a lock for top-5 total season value given his track record.

Karl-Anthony Towns was able to chip in 19 points, 10 rebounds, a steal, a block and two triples on Saturday night but shot 6-for-16 in the process.
KAT had a few tough bounces tonight, including a late three that was in and out that essentially sealed the result. He's going to cruise to first-round value and will post lines even gaudier than this on most nights.
December 6, 2018, 12:13 amKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns destroyed the Hornets with 35 points, 10 rebounds and six blocks as the Wolves easily won on Wednesday.
It was his second career game with 30-plus points, 10-plus rebounds and five-plus blocks. The only other players who have more than one since he entered the NBA are Kevin Durant (two) and Anthony Davis (eight). KAT should easily bring top-10 value, especially now that Jimmy Butler is off the team.

Karl-Anthony Towns double-doubled on Monday against the Rockets with 24 points, 11 boards, three assists, three steals, a block and a triple.
Big KAT was aggressive tonight and it paid off despite only hitting 10-of-24 shots. He's a perennial top-8 8-cat fantasy option and has yet to miss a game in his career. Enjoy the ride.
November 26, 2018, 9:25 pmKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns had a pedestrian game by his standards on Monday against the Cavs with 21 points, two triples, nine boards, a steal and an assist.
Towns has taken a slight step back after the Jimmy Butler trade but that shouldn't be too concerning as it takes a while for new teams to get used to playing with each other. Towns' blocks have fallen off over the last two weeks. He'll finish as a top-8 overall value and a top-3 total value as he's yet to miss a game in his career.
November 24, 2018, 10:46 pmKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns was beastly in Saturday's 111-96 win over the visiting Bulls, going 13-of-25 from the floor and 8-of-10 from the charity stripe for 35 points, 22 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes of action.
The Bulls predictably had no match for Towns, who was able to feast in this cupcake matchup. The Jimmy Butler trade has strapped a rocket to his fantasy value and we should see KAT in contention for fantasy's top spot by the time the year is done.
November 23, 2018, 2:42 pmKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns had 21 points to lead all starters and added nine boards on Friday.
Towns chugs along as a strong early-round asset. Even in a quiet game, there isn't much to complain about here. Given the dearth of options at the center position, enjoy his reliability and stability.
November 22, 2018, 12:49 amKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns scored 22 points with seven rebounds on 7-of-14 shooting in a loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.
He had what is probably going to be dunk of the year on Paul Millsap late in the fourth quarter. He is top-15 value right now and should only consistently improve since Jimmy Butler got traded. Expect KAT to remain at the top of his game all season long now that Butler is gone.
November 18, 2018, 7:27 pmKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns finished Sunday's 87-100 loss with 15 points, 20 rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer.
Marc Gasol typically shuts down his matchup but Towns turned in a solid game tonight. He even went 6-of-10 from the field, so while we'd like to see him command more shots on offense we can't knock the solid shooting night. KAT is on his way to top-5 value.
November 14, 2018, 11:59 pmKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns led the way in Wednesday's 107-100 win over the Pelicans, scoring 25 points with 16 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two threes.
KAT hit 9-of-17 from the field and might be able to crank up the heat now that Jimmy Butler isn't breathing down his neck. We'll see if he's got some extra fire in his belly in the aftermath of the trade. Towns is a lock for first-round fantasy value but he could definitely get himself in the mix for that top overall spot in the coming weeks. The signature moment of this game was Towns rejecting Anthony Davis at the rim and Andrew Wiggins finishing with a jam of his own on the other end. You couldn't ask for a better, or more poetic, start to the post-Butler era.
November 12, 2018, 10:52 pmKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns led the Timberwolves to victory on Monday against the Nets 120-113 by scoring 25 points with 21 boards, three assists, two blocks, two triples and a steal while adding 10 turnovers.
This was the first time in Wolves franchise history that a player logged a triple-double with turnovers. Despite the turnovers, Towns delivered as he hit 9-of-11 shots and 5-of-6 from the line.
November 10, 2018, 1:29 pmKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tom Thibodeau realized that the Wolves couldn't win amidst the dysfunction caused by Jimmy Butler and decided that the Wolves wouldn't play another game with him after Friday's loss to the Kings.
Shams Charania reported that Butler almost sat out last night as the deal took shape. It's a headache that's finally gone for the Wolves, and we're hoping that this can relieve a ton of pressure for Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. The Wolves added some quality players but neither Robert Covington nor Dario Saric is a true go-to scorer, so that burden now falls on Minnesota's incumbent youngsters. They should be seeing more shots headed their way.

Karl-Anthony Towns played Alpha for the Wolves on Friday as he posted 39 points, 19 boards, one assist, two triples and a blocked shot.
Unfortunately, the pack lost and had to bow down to the Kings. After a slow start, KAT has finally entered the top-12 value range in 9-cat and is making his way up the rankings. His numbers should pop once Jimmy Butler, who dropped 13-8-8 in this one, is finally traded away, so now is the time to offer up that "KATnip" before his price heads into the stratosphere.
November 6, 2018, 1:14 amKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns scored 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting with 12 rebounds, two assists, a 3-pointer, three steals and four blocks on Monday.
KAT dropped another gem of a line and is crushing it lately. He was one of the many early-round players who stumbled out the gate but is now in the top-15 in 9-cat leagues and should continue to trend upwards.
