Kyle Lowry posted a triple-double on Wednesday with 12 points (4-of-13 from the field), 11 rebounds and 12 assists in 37 minutes.
Lowry didn't shoot the ball well from the field and was 1-of-2 from the line but that can be overlooked since he posted double-digit boards and assists. Lowry is a top-40 player in 9-cat and 8-cat leagues over the course of the season. He has a top-50 floor with top-25 upside and should finish the season within that range.

Kyle Lowry (whiplash) had a 27-point, 11-assist double-double in a 137-126 win over the Wolves on Monday, but he also added seven rebounds, one steal, three blocks and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.
Lowry shot 9-for-16 from the field and 5-for-6 from the free throw line. So, it's safe to say that Lowry is healthy enough to trust like normal. For the season, he's put up third-round value at age 33.

Kyle Lowry will be available for Monday's game after dealing with a neck injury which was labeled as whiplash.
Lowry missed just one game after getting injured on Friday. Terence Davis may see a bit less playing time but will certainly figure into the Raptors' rotation. Lowry helps his owners in several categories including assists, points, and threes.

Kyle Lowry (neck) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Timberwolves.
If Lowry is forced to miss another game we should see another spot start for Terence Davis. He's been a worthwhile DFS play and is a speculative add in 12-team leagues for as long as Norman Powell is out.

Kyle Lowry (neck) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Nets.
Fred VanVleet and Terence Davis will see extended roles and become awesome DFS plays for tonight's slate.

Kyle Lowry (neck) is being listed as doubtful for Saturday's game versus the Nets.
With Lowry looking more likely to sit than play, Fred VanVleet and Terence Davis will both see extended roles and become viable DFS options.

Kyle Lowry (whiplash) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Nets.
Lowry suffered the injury against someone's leg while tripping on a drive to the basket. X-Rays came back negative and the questionable tag is encouraging that the injury is not serious. Terence Davis has been making a case for more playing time regardless with strong lines in three straight and might be thrown into the starting lineup for Saturday's game.

Kyle Lowry (neck) played 28 minutes and scored 16 points before leaving with a neck injury that is being called 'whiplash' in the third quarter.
Trainers were seen working on his shoulder and neck area before taking him to the locker room. He was deemed out for the rest of the game shortly thereafter. No update on his status has been provided, check back later in the weekend.

Kyle Lowry (whiplash) won't return to Friday's game vs. the Pacers.
Uh oh. Hopefully this isn't serious and can be treated with a couple days of rest. They seemed to be working on his neck/shoulder area after he left the game.

Kyle Lowry went HAM on the Pacers on Wednesday, popping off for 32 points on 12-of-21 shooting with eight rebounds, 10 dimes, three treys and two steals in 38 minutes.
Lowry was feeling it tonight and delivered across his key categories and then some. Lowry is a strong early-round value play ROS, or until he gets hurt.
January 31, 2020, 9:37 pmFred VanVleetPG, Toronto Raptors
Fred VanVleet came through with 16 points, eight rebounds, nine assists, two steals, two 3-pointers and a 7-of-11 shooting line on Friday night.
VanVleet filled the box score and put the cherry on top by only committing one turnover in 35 minutes. Though Nick Nurse keeps talking about playing the matchup game with his starting five, VanVleet and Norman Powell are producing so well in their current roles that it's hard to imagine a change. FVV should be good for at least middle-round value for the rest of the way. Tonight he offset a down game from Kyle Lowry, who had seven points, six assists, a steal and a three on 2-of-9 shooting in 31 minutes. Don't think too hard about that one, as the game was never really up for grabs.

Kyle Lowry put up 23 points, five rebounds, five assists and four steals in a game-high 37 minutes on Thursday.
Most importantly, the All-Star was efficient, making eight of his 16 shots. He's a strong point guard option for fantasy purposes, especially when the shot is falling at a high rate.

Kyle Lowry dropped 11 dimes in Tuesday's 130-114 win over the Hawks, adding 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting with two 3s, eight rebounds and one steal.
Lowry has been just inside the top-60 over the last week. He's a high-variance elite point guard, so the ups and downs will be there. All told, his biggest risk still remains his being an injury/sit risk late in the fantasy season.
January 26, 2020, 6:52 pmPascal SiakamPF, Toronto Raptors
Pascal Siakam scored 35 points on the road against the Spurs on Sunday, hitting 12-of-23 shots (5-of-11 3PTs, 6-of-9 FTs) with eight rebounds, three assists and one steal in 37 minutes.
We haven't seen a big explosive line from Siakam since his injury so it's good to know he looks ready to compete for second round value again. Kyle Lowry added 16 points, four rebounds and four assists, and Fred VanVleet had a solid line of 13 points, four rebounds, seven assists, four steals, one block and three treys in the win.
