Toronto Raptors G Fred VanVleet scored a career-high 54 points in Tuesday’s 123-108 win over the Orlando Magic. VanVleet set a record for most points scored in a game by an undrafted free agent, breaking the previous mark set by Hall of Famer Moses Malone (53 points). VanVleet was basically unconscious from downtown, going 11-14 from beyond the arc and 17-23 from the floor in the win.

VanVleet did a pretty good job breaking the DFS slate on DraftKings at $7,400. He dropped close to 78 fantasy points at around 16.4 percent ownership in the $15 main GPP on DraftKings. FVV’s previous season high in points was 35, which was good for around 55 DKFP. VanVleet had around the same ownership in the $25 Double-Up cash game — 13.2 percent owned.
