Damian Lillard amidst best season of his career
Corey Robinson analyzes Damian Lillard's career year, as the Blazers PG is providing top-10 fantasy value for his managers.
- Trail Blazers star guard Damian Lillard added another individual achievement to his resume at All-Star Saturday night, winning the three point contest for the first time in three attempts. And after appearing in just 29 games last season due to injury, Dame is in the midst of the best year of his NBA career. He entered the All-Star break averaging 31.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 0.8 steals, and 4.2 three pointers in 36.2 minutes, shooting 46.7% from the field and 91.6% from the foul line. Each of those numbers is an improvement on his production from the 2021, 2022 campaign, and Lillard is providing top 10 per game value in nine cap formats. While he has missed some time due to injury, the seven time All-Star is far healthier than he was at any point in the last two seasons after undergoing core muscle surgery in January 2022.
