The Toronto Raptors have many players who can contribute to a successful fantasy campaign this year. Who are they, and where should you target them?

The Toronto Raptors had a wealth of useful fantasy basketball contributors in the 2018-2019 season. Between Kawhi Leonard providing elite fantasy contributions in-between rest days, and Pascal Siakam providing amazing value in his breakout season, many fantasy championship teams last season rostered a Toronto Raptor.

Although they might be missing an elite fantasy player this season, the Toronto Raptors still have a host of players who can make a significant impact in your fantasy leagues. We will be looking at potential contributors for this season and whether you should draft them or look elsewhere for good value.  

Before we get into how the 2019-20 Raptors will help you win fantasy, this article will not focus specifically on Head-to-Head or Rotisserie league types or size. Both scoring settings are similar enough when it comes to targeting players who will meet or exceed expectations relative to their draft position.

In larger leagues with 14 or more teams, all players get a bump in value. Draft recommendations are for re-draft leagues.

Each player preview in this article will be followed up with a drafting recommendation.

Draft Aggressively: Feel free to reach for this high-upside player earlier than Yahoo’s/ESPN’s projected draft range.

Safe Pick: This player will contribute exactly what is expected of him relative to his draft stock, and has limited risk of being the weak link on your team.

Do Not Draft: This player will underperform expectations and will burn you for spending a pick unless he slips well out of his draft range.
