Analysis: Kuzma has totaled 23 points on 8-of-24 shooting in his last two games after averaging 18 points on 64.4 percent shooting in his previous four. The rookie out of Utah is in the Lakers starting lineup and playing heavy minutes so once his shot starts falling again he should be a solid fantasy option.

Kuzma has already cemented himself a place in the team's rotation and is a player to keep an eye on in the coming weeks and months.
