DeMar DeRozan scored 20 points with three rebounds, five assists, one block, three steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.
The 3-pointers are back with five attempts and several of them coming on a high degree of difficulty. DeRozan had missed his previous 11 attempts from deep over his last four, but he still managed to make at least 44 percent from the field in all of those. He's also been dropping dimes like a clumsy toll booth attendant with 5.7 per game in his previous January games. He's not just a scorer anymore. Jan 21 - 12:31 AM

DeMar DeRozan went 8-of-18 from the field and 8-of-9 from the stripe on his way to 24 points, five dimes, one rebound, two steals and three turnovers in 35 minutes in Monday's loss to the 76ers.

DeRozan is hitting career-highs in triples (1.2), dimes (5.0), and FG% (48.2) this season, to go with averages of 25.4 points, 4.2 boards and 1.1 steals per game, which translates to top-30 value in 9-cat leagues. Toronto currently sits just four games out of the No. 1 spot out East, and it looks like they’ll be battling Boston and Cleveland for seeding, so we wouldn't expect DeRozan to get hit with random rest days down the stretch.

The Raptors mounted a furious comeback attempt on Saturday, ultimately falling 127-125 despite DeMar DeRozan's game-high 42 points on 17-of-31 FGs and 8-of-10 FTs.

DeRozan was phenomenal but Toronto's defense was the issue, as they gave up 81 points in the first half and trailed by as many as 27 points tonight. He added five rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 38 minutes, with a huge usage rate in the absence of Kyle Lowry (tailbone). As a footnote, DeRozan's big game tonight also pushed him past Vince Carter as the Raptors' all-time leader in games with 30+ points (92 games). He's surging as a top-20 value over the past month.
Jan 13 - 11:11 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 25 points on 10-of-29 shooting in a 90-89 loss to the Heat on Tuesday, adding six assists, four rebounds and one block in 35 minutes.

DeRozan was one of the hottest players in the NBA coming into tonight's game with 35.5 points over his last four outings and he has a 39.2 usage rate with Kyle Lowry (back) off the floor, but Josh Richardson's defense slowed him down. He narrowly missed a full-court heave with 0.3 seconds left on the clock, but he had an altercation with Goran Dragic after the game and may have thrown a punch (link below). If you own him, just make sure he's not suspended for Thursday's game vs. the Cavaliers before deploying him.
Jan 9 - 10:15 PM

DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors to a 114-113 overtime win against the Nets on Monday, scoring 35 points on 14-of-30 shooting with six assists, three rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple in 42 minutes.

He was just named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week and you'd be hard-pressed to find a hotter player since the new year. Derozan is averaging 35.5 points over his last four games, shooting a blistering 52.7 percent from the field in that span. Kyle Lowry hurt himself late in the game and had to be carried off by two teammates, so DeRozan may be asked to do even more going forward -- his usage rate climbs from 27.9 to 39.2 when Lowry is off the floor.
Jan 8 - 11:00 PM

DeMar DeRozan finished with 20 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 29 minutes in Friday's 129-110 win at Milwaukee.

D-Ro was contributing in multiple areas while going 7-of-12 from the field, finishing with a stellar plus-34 rating before departing. He was rested most of the fourth quarter with the game well in hand. He'll see two more full days to rest over the weekend before the team takes to the court again on Monday in a very favorable fantasy matchup against the defensively-challenged Nets.
Jan 5 - 10:55 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 35 points with three rebounds, six assists, three steals and five 3-pointers during a 124-115 win over the Bulls on Wednesday.

The 2018 version of DeRozan has been awesome with this one and a 52-point explosion on Monday. He's lived at the line over his last two games with 23 makes on 23 attempts while he's seen an upward trend since early December. Of course, the big headline is DeRozan making 25 treys over his last eight games, including 10 in his last two to start 2018. It's hard to buy this 3-point output, but DeRozan's work in the offseason could help him get to over 1.0 per game going forward.
Jan 3 - 11:36 PM

DeMar DeRozan set a Raptors franchise record with 52 points on Monday, making 17-of-29 field goals and 13-of-13 free throws in an overtime win vs. the visiting Bucks.

DeRozan added eight assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 43 minutes, but those contributions were overshadowed by the offensive fireworks. He dropped 21 points in the first quarter alone, including three 3-pointers, and finished 5-of-9 beyond the arc on the night. The perimeter shooting is a big story for his fantasy value -- he's a combined 20-of-38 over the past seven games, which is the most he's ever attempted or made in a seven-game stretch. He's settling into top-40 value and will go higher if this 3-point barrage proves to be sustainable. It's a Happy New Year indeed for DeRozan's fantasy owners.
Jan 1 - 10:27 PM

DeMar DeRozan hit 10-of-18 shots and 2-of-4 3-pointers for 25 points, five assists and two blocks in Friday's easy win over the Hawks.

DeRozan hit 13 3-pointers during a three-game span before Christmas, but had missed his last five attempts in his last two games. He got back on track tonight and if the 3-pointer becomes a nightly occurrence, his fantasy value is going to get a nice boost. Tonight was also his first game without a steal in his last five.

DeMar DeRozan made 4-of-16 from the field for 15 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and two turnovers in 36 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

The story heading into Christmas was how he made 13 treys in his previous three games before the holiday, but now he's ice cold with this dud and an eight-point Tuesday while going 0-of-5 from deep. What happened besides those threes? He was also just 2-of-12 on midrange in his back-to-back set and he only made three shots at the rim in these two losses. DeRozan isn't going to be a two-trey guy, but his assists are up and there's little reason to worry here.

DeMar DeRozan hit just 3-of-16 shots for eight points, three rebounds, five assists, two steals and zero 3-pointers in 35 minutes of Tuesday's 98-93 loss to the Mavericks.

This was just his second single-digit scoring night of the season and he finally cooled off from downtown, missing both his attempts after hitting 13-of-20 from deep over his previous three games. He'll look to get back on track against the Thunder on Wednesday.

DeMar DeRozan scored 29 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 35minutes during a 102-86 win over the 76ers on Saturday.

He's on fire from deep with 10 triples in his last two games -- he scored a career-high 45 on Thursday. DeRozan was working really hard on his 3-pointers over the summer, so this recent uptick isn't totally a shock. The Raptors are playing extremely well with their 23-8 record and they're technically in the No. 2 spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
Sat, Dec 23, 2017 09:17:00 PM

DeMar DeRozan hit 13-of-21 shots, 6-of-9 3-pointers and 13-of-15 free throws on his way to a career-high 45 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 39 minutes.

Wow. The six 3-pointers were also a career high and one of the big knocks on DeRozan is his lack of a 3-point shot. And after going 1-of-18 from downtown over his previous 11 games, he's now hit 9-of-13 in his last two. In addition to the career night, DeRozan also became just the second Raptor to have 10 40-point games, joining the legendary Vince Carter. His 3-point shot is bound to fail him at some point soon, but you have to think his confidence in it has never been higher, either.

DeMar DeRozan went 6-of-17 from the field and 9-of-12 from the stripe on his way to 21 points, five assists, one rebound, two blocks and two turnovers in 34 minutes.

DeRozan set the tone for Toronto on offense, and he was very aggressive attacking the rack and creating opportunities for his teammates on drive-and-kicks. He’s been a steady top-40 guy on the year while hitting career-highs in assists (5.0) and steals (1.3), and he's showing no signs of slowing down.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 06:36:00 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 31 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

Don't look now, but the Raptors are rolling with their +8.2 net rating crushing Boston's +4.7 for the best in the Eastern Conference on the year -- it's +11.3 over the last 15, too. The Raptors, Rockets and Warriors are all top eight for both offensive and defensive rating this season, and the Raptors have won eight of their last nine. DeRozan is also really heating up again with back-to-back 30-plus scoring games for the first time this season, but of course he did go against the Suns and Nets.
