Fantasy Outlook vs. Suns: Kemba and Gortat Hot

Kemba Walker had an outstanding start to his sophomore campaign with the Cats, averaging 20.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.00 steals in two games last week. Walker shot well from both the field (45.2 percent) and free-throw line (91.7 percent) and was amazingly efficient with the ball, averaging just 1.0 turnover in 32.0 minutes played. With three games this week, look for an even great fantasy impact from Walker.

Marcin Gortat has stepped up to be a key building block for the Suns in the paint, averaging 13.3 points and 12.0 rebounds in Phoenix’s first three games. He’s coming off back-to-back double-doubles against Detroit and at Orlando and was one rebound shy of a third double-double in the Suns opener against Golden State. Even more impressive, 4.7 of those rebounds come on the offensive glass – a tough stat to fill in the fantasy world. Gortat also leads Phoenix in shooting percentage (.543) and blocked shots (4.00).
