Ed Davis is still woefully underowned in fantasy leagues (37 percent of Yahoo leagues), despite playing well as a starter.
The former North Carolina Tar Heels good play continued with 18 points (9-13 FG) and eight rebounds in Sunday's win over the Lakers.
Landry Fields finally broke out of his slump with a double-double: 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-4 FT) and 10 points with four steals. Fields is owned in six percent of Yahoo leagues, and I wouldn't touch him unless he can string together several more good games.
Amir Johnson returned to the bench (why?!?) but posted a respectable line in 22 minutes: nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and a block. He's really cooled off in the last week, and getting benched in favor of Aaron Gray (five points and two boards in 16 minutes) doesn't help.
Alan Anderson continues to be a sneaky pickup: 14 points, eight assists, three steals, three 3-pointers and two rebounds. He's owned in just 15 percent of leagues, which seems low considering his last 10 games (13.9 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.7 assist, .9 steals and .2 blocks with 20 3-pointers made).
Terrence Ross played an empty 18 minutes: four points (2-7 FG) with a rebound and an assist. Leave him on the wire.
Jose Calderon led the Raptors with 22 points (9-15 FG, 3-3 FT), nine assists, two rebounds and a 3-pointer. Kyle Lowry played just 18 minutes for eight points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists and three steals.

Andrea Bargnani still doesn't have a timetable for his return from an elbow injury.
But Raptors beat writer Josh Lewenberg shared some good news for the Toronto Raptors and Bargnani owners: The Magician has been cleared for on-court work without contact.
Bargnani has been out of action since December 10. Even when he returns, he may not come back to a starting role. Dwane...
Currently on a four-game losing streak, the Toronto Raptors have suffered their share of painful defeats this season. With overtime losses to the Bulls and Sixers on Wednesday and Friday, the Raptors have fallen to just 1-4 in overtime and 2-5 in non-overtime games decided by five points or less. A poor record in close games — it’s a classic indicator of a bad team, and at...
Yesterday the Toronto Raptors beat the LA Lakers at the ACC. Normally this would be big news but in terms of the Raptors pulling off an upset. This win was nice and all, but honestly the story that came out of this game is more about how bad the Lakers are than the Raptors making progress.
Is this the ultimate karma kick in the head for LA? They load up on Dwight Howard and Steve...
If every sports star got to play for the team he idolized growing up, the Cowboys, Bulls or Yankees would be stacked.
The Toronto Raptors wouldn’t be too bad off, either.
While the Raptors are usually not the first pick of young basketball fans looking to make their name in the sport, the north-of-the-border NBA club was apparently the favorite of a youthful Kevin Durant. He liked...

The Toronto Raptors bother me, and they should bother you too. It is bothering me even more that as I type this critical piece about them they are beating the Lakers, which used to mean something. For the past eight years, the Raptors have had high draft picks. Every offseason they throw monopoly money at unproven...
TORONTO -- The Toronto Raptors shook off some disturbing trends with their 108-103 victory Sunday over the Los Angeles Lakers before a sellout crowd of 19,800 at Air Canada Centre. They ended a four-game losing streak for starters. They also snapped a 0-20 run in games in which they had allowed 100 or more points in regulation time. And it was their first win over the Lakers...

The Return of Mr. Anderson!
The Toronto Raptors are slowly becoming a fantasy basketball plethora. If you are not sure about the meaning of the word, I don’t blame you. You can either google it, or you could watch “The Three Amigos” and then just thank me later. Jose Calderon (13/1/4), Ed Davis (18/10/6/1/2), Amir Johnson (9/5/5/2stl), Terrence...

Ed Davis was dominant with 18 points and 10 rebounds in the Raptors' loss Friday night. Davis stuffed the stat sheet with six assists, a steal and two blocks.
The former North Carolina Tar Heel is owned in a ridiculously low 34 percent of Yahoo leagues. He's posted great numbers in his last five games: 14.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and .6 blocks.
