Karl-Anthony Towns's Fantasy Scouting Report

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest pre-season projection, you can expect Karl-Anthony Towns will be an elite fantasy starter. His 3204 projected fantasy points puts him at #2 behind Nikola Jokic and ahead of Joel Embiid. He has averaged 42.9 fantasy points in his past 77 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 39.1 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#3) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite center. He is projected to live up to these high expectations. Last season he was also the #2 ranked center.
