DeRozan amassed 22 points (10-16 FG), six rebounds and seven assists in a 107-84 win over the New York Knicks on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

DeRozan has scored at least 22 points in eight-straight games, despite the fact that this was his second-lowest total of the month. What's most encouraging about DeRozan's 2017 is the fact that he's assisting more recently, as he's averaging six assists across his last five games. If he can continue to do that out of the shooting guard position, DeRozan will remain a top-notch option with his elite scoring and free-throw shooting.

DeRozan posted 25 points (11-18-FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, six assists and two steals across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 125-116 win over the Pelicans.

EDGE Analysis

Although the Raptors were pushed around quite a bit by the Pelicans frontcourt, it made little difference as DeRozan and the Pelicans shot 59 percent from the floor, with DeRozan leading the way. He followed up his 27-point performance against the Rockers with another great showing Wednesday. Thee tandem of Kyle Lowry and DeRozan are the focal points of the Raptors offensive attack and are one of the most powerful backcourt duos in the game. DeRozan's stat line won't always be this balanced as he's primarily a scoring threat but nevertheless, he's an everyday starter in all formats.

DeRozan scored 27 points (7-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 13-16 FT) while adding six rebounds, five assists and a steal in 34 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Rockets.

EDGE Analysis

He's failed to score at least 24 points only twice in 13 games to kick off the season, and his current 24.8 PPG has largely been fueled by a career-high 9.7 free-throw attempts per game and an 83.3 percent success rate. DeRozan's also attempted a career-high 2.8 three-pointers per game, but as yet he hasn't yet found his shot from the outside, making only 27.8 percent of those attempts from beyond the arc.

DeRozan scored 33 points (10-23 FG, 2-6 3PT, 11-13 FT) to go with two rebounds, eight assists and one steal across 36 minutes in Thursday's 122-118 win over New Orleans.

EDGE Analysis

Eclipsing the 30 point mark for the third time in his first 11 games, DeRozan has become the focal point of the Toronto offense in the early going. With Kyle Lowry off to a slow start, the shooting guard has picked up the slack, averaging 24.7 points after Thursday's contest. DeRozan will look to continue his strong start against Boston on Sunday.

DeRozan scored 24 points (9-18 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding four rebounds and four assists in 36 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Bulls.

EDGE Analysis

He's scored at least 24 points in eight of his last nine games, and DeRozan continues to tease adding some three-point range to his skill set, going 5-for-14 (35.7 percent) from long distance over the last three games. If he does become a consistent threat from beyond the arc in addition to his mid-range prowess and ability to get to the free-throw line, the 28-year-old may well be able to top last season's career high of 27.3 points per game.

DeRozan scored 26 points (8-21 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 10-12 FT) while adding four rebounds and three assists in 37 minutes during Sunday's 107-96 loss to the Wizards.

EDGE Analysis

Neither backcourt was at full strength, as John Wall (shoulder) was out for the Wizards and Kyle Lowry got ejected early in the second quarter, but DeRozan came up short in a duel with Bradley Beal. The 28-year-old shooting guard has now scored at least 24 points in seven of nine games to begin the season.

DeRozan scored 37 points (10-20 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 14-14 FT) while adding six rebounds and two assists in 38 minutes during Friday's 109-100 win over the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

He came out firing after the break, scoring 17 points in the third quarter to give the Raptors a lead they'd carry to the final whistle. The three-pointers were especially encouraging, as DeRozan had gone just 0-for-3 from long distance in his previous four games combined, and if the 28-year-old can finally become a consistent threat from beyond the arc it would be a huge boost to his already strong fantasy value.

DeRozan scored 25 points (10-20 FG, 5-7 FT) while adding four assists and three rebounds in 37 minutes during Monday's 99-85 win over the Trail Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

After a sluggish 11-point opener, DeRozan has quickly gotten back into form, scoring at least 24 points in five straight games while shooting a robust 50.5 percent (46-for-91) from the floor. Look for him to keep rolling Wednesday as the Raptors' western road trip takes them to Denver.

DeRozan scored 24 points (9-21 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-9 FT) while adding five rebounds, five assists and three steals in 37 minutes during Friday's 101-92 win over the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

Playing in his franchise-record 600th game as a Raptor, DeRozan led the charge on a second-half comeback, scoring at least 24 points for the fourth straight game. He also recorded multiple steals for the fourth time in five games to begin the season, and while that defensive prowess will likely fade, his 2.8 steals per game so far has been a nice surprise.

DeRozan posted 24 points (9-18 FG, 6-7 FT), six assists, three rebounds and six steals across 38 minutes in Wednesday's 117-112 loss to the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

DeRozan's scoring total represented a team high on the night, while his stalwart defense resulted in a game-high number of thefts as well. The sharpshooting two-guard also hit a pair of free throws that gave Toronto a 112-107 lead with 2:13 remaining, although it ultimately wasn't enough for the Raptors to snap their now 13-game losing streak at Golden State. After a lackluster opener in which he only scored 11 points, DeRozan has bounced back by tallying no less than Wednesday's 24 over the subsequent three contests while also boosting his assist totals in each one of those games.
