In season-long fantasy leagues, having a balanced team without distinguishable weaknesses is a must. However, we couldn't always get what we want and chances are, there is that one category that we couldn't get a hold on.

Not this good, though.
The Raptors currently sports a 13-3 record, the best in the Eastern Conference and third overall. A testament to their consistency, there really Read More
