Derozan's two great games so far (out of 3 played) have been against the Nets and the Wolves. ;-7 I think we need to see him play against slightly better teams than that before getting too excited.

Depinding on who you;d have to drop of course...


the deal came through a little bit different but i like it still

gave up derozan and perry jones
got turner, james johnson, a first rounder for next years draft +/- pick 6-7-8, and a sec rnd pick for 2014 +/- pick 18

i'm not a turner fan but i will get more overall stats from him, i have a scoring team so won't miss derozan too much
but i also think derozan will be better this year and maybe crack the top 100
Very tough to get value from him but i think i did pretty well

Nice. I actually like James Johnson still quite a bit in H2H particularly. He can get a decent amount of steals and blocks in a game if needed.

Why is there so much hating on DeRozan in this thread? I regret not owning him in any league. He is clearly the go to guy with Lowry out, and he is still a good scorer even when Lowry is healthy.

The thing with Derozan is without a consistent 3 point shot, he probably needs to get to the line a bit more consistently. The improvement in his passing seems like a good sign. I am sort of wondering if Toronto saw something in his development that wasn't apparent to the rest of us.

I haven't been watching many raptor games but my guy is telling me to sell high on derozan. I get the feeling his numbers will be dropping once Lowry returns.

I haven't been watching either, but I agree. There's no way he can keep up this kind of production all season, especially with Lowry out. If you can sell high and get a proven fantasy contributor back in return, jump on it. Even if he has a nice improvement on his game this season you should still be able to capitalize, even if its just a small increase in value.
