Conform to the Norm

For the third consecutive game, Kyle Lowry draws a reasonably difficult individual matchup so Norman Powell will run a significant portion of the offense (as evident by his 24.3-percent usage rate last two games). He is averaging over 30 fantasy points per game during that span so he is worthy of a roster spot yet again. Here are my picks for Friday, January 27:
