At this point in the season it seems like every other fantasy squad is dry-heaving for points, and usually at the forward position. The urgency makes Kawhi Leonard your go to fantasy pickup of the week. We might not be saying the same next week, but he’s your best bet right now. The San Antonio Spurs rookie has posted some head-turning numbers in the last few games, first off the bench, and now tonight as a starter. He probably won’t get you 30, but he’ll definitely get you 20, and in deep leagues 20 is solid gold, baby. Also, he’s going to get his minutes. Gregg Popovich is gushing over his effort, reminiscent of a young Paul Millsap years ago, who has seen steady minutes ever since getting Jerry Sloan’s effort endorsement. With that said, there’s a good chance Leonard will be a factor the rest of the season. So give Drew “I once grew a soul patch on the back of my head” Gooden the boot, and snag Kawhi Leonard ASAP.
