Fantasy Basketball 2010-2011 Team Preview: Toronto Raptors (9/13/10)

The Raptors lost their fantasy star when Chris Bosh joined James and Wade in Miami, but they still have a few guys who could be interesting fantasy options.  Jarrett Jack and Jose Calderone will platoon at PG, but I think Jack should see more minutes as the starter.  Shooting guard will be a battle between DeMar DeRozan and Leandro Barbosa, which will probably end up as a useless fantasy platoon situation.  Linas Kleiza has a good chance of securing big minutes at SF this season and is a deep fantasy sleeper, especially if you need threes.  Amir Johnson should get first shot at filling the void left by Bosh.   Andrea Bargnani is the best fantasy option on the Raptors, but he’s more of a scorer than rebounder, so make sure he fits what you are trying to accomplish with you fantasy team.
