Dennis Smith Jr. has been a dynamo for the Knicks in terms of counting stats — 17.4 ppg, 6.0 apg, 1.8 spg, 0.6 bpg, 1.0 3s and just 2.4 TO’s! (in 5 games). Unfortunately he's also been a major liability in percentages (41.0 FG / 54.5 FT), reminding us that increased volume can be both a good and bad thing.

On this week's episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, Ryan Knaus joins me to talk about some of the most polarizing fantasy players out there, and big-name fantasy headaches, from DSJ to Russell Westbrook (triple-double machine and huge percentage liability), as well as Kawhi Leonard, who has sat out 10 times this season, for a total of 15 games.
