Bradley Beal

28-Year-Old GuardG
Washington Wizards
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Beal had one of the best seasons in his career during the 2020-21 season, as he averaged 31.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.2 steals. The 28-year-old played in his third All-Star game and finished second for the league's scoring title, only behind Stephen Curry (32.0). The guard set a career-high 60 points last season and managed to record five double-doubles. Beal made career-high marks of 48.5 percent from the field and 88.9 percent from the charity stripe. For the 2021-22 season, the Wizards brought in a defensive-minded coach in Wes Unseld Jr., so Beal's number of steals could see a rise. The former third overall pick's role will likely increase this upcoming season, as ball-dominant guard Russell Westbrook is no longer with the Wizards. Washington brought in some key players that could fit in well alongside Beal and could help boost his assists. Beal should also possess the ball more than last year, which could bump up his points per game. With a better team built around Beal, don't be surprised if the guard is taken somewhere in the mid-to-late first round. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Bradley Emmanuel Beal was born in 1993 in St. Louis. He is the son of Bobby and Besta Beal and has four brothers, all of whom played college football. Both of Beal's parents played sports at Kentucky State. Hip hop legend Nelly used to walk Beal to school. In praising Beal's success, Nelly said "He's a testament to good upbringing, strong parents, determination and work." The "Real Deal" attended and played basketball at Chaminade College Preparatory School in St. Louis. He was named the 2011 Gatorade National High School Player of the Year after his senior season in which he averaged 32.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.7 steals. Beal was also named a 2011 McDonald's and Jordan Brand All-American. The shooting guard was also a two-time Gatorade Player of the Year in Missouri (2010 and 2011) and won gold medals as a member of the U16 and U17 Team USA squads. As a pro, Beal participated in the 2013 and 2014 White House Easter Egg Roll as part of the Eggtivity Zone, joining other professional athletes and President Barack Obama in promoting health and wellness. Fans can learn more about the All-Star on Twitter (@RealDealBeal23) and Instagram (@bradbeal3). Beal was named both a first-team All-SEC and SEC All-Freshman in the 2011-12 season, the first University of Florida men's basketball player to accomplish that feat. The St. Louis, Missouri native led the Gators in rebounds (6.7), minutes (34.2) and steals (1.4) while ranking second on the team in points (14.8). Beal propelled the Gators to the 2012 SEC Tournament, where they ultimately fell to Louisville. He was named to the All-SEC Tournament team. Beal also helped lead Florida to the Elite Eight in the 2011 NCAA Tournament. Beal registered a double-double (14 points and 11 rebounds) in the opening game over Virginia. He entered the 2012 NBA Draft after his freshman year and was selected third overall by the Wizards.

December 1, 2021
Beal ended with 19 points (8-20 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six rebounds, nine assists and one steal across 38 minutes during Wednesday's victory over the Timberwolves.
ANALYSIS
After six consecutive 20-point games, Beal has now failed to hit the 20-point mark in two straight contests. However, the three-time all-star made plays for his teammates by nearly notching a double-double while tying his season high in assists. Beal is now averaging a solid 21.2 points, 6.2 assists and 4.4 rebounds in his last five games.

Beal had the best season of his career in 2019-20, but to the surprise of many, he wasn't voted an All-Star. The guard averaged 30.5 points, 6.1 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 3.0 threes and 1.2 steals in 36.0 minutes. He also shot a quality 45.5 percent from the field and 84.2 percent from the free-throw line. Beal added two 50-point games to his resume as well -- plus eight double-doubles. It was the second consecutive campaign that Beal finished top-15 in fantasy on a per-game basis (eight-category leagues). His role could see a slight reduction in 2020-21, however, as Russell Westbrook is his new backcourt mate. Westbrook is ball-dominant -- more so than John Wall -- so we will likely see Beal off-ball as much as ever. The result could be fewer assists, though Beal might still be able to launch off a similar amount of shots. It will be an adjustment for him, but we shouldn't be surprised if he still returns late-first to early-second round value given his talent.
Beal is coming off his second straight All-Star appearance, and he led the NBA in total minutes (3,028) during the 2018-19 season. While looking at his per-game numbers for the year shows improvement, much of the progress occurred after John Wall was lost for the year due to injury. Wall played his last game on Dec. 26, and Beal took over as the Wizards' primary ballhandler after that point. From Dec. 28 onward, Beal averaged 27.2 points, 6.0 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 1.8 steals. Had he posted those numbers across the entire campaign, Beal would have been one of only two players to average at least 25 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 1.5 steals last year -- the other being James Harden. With Washington not bringing in any other high-usage players during the offseason and Wall out for all of 2019-20, it seems reasonable to expect Beal to continue working within the expanded role he took on last season. Assuming that's the case, Beal profiles as a late-first or early-second round draft pick in most fantasy formats.
Beal put together the first complete season of his career in 2017-18, playing in all 82 games after seeing action in less than 65 contests in three of five prior campaigns. His scoring (22.6 PPG) remained relatively the same to his 2016-17 offensive breakout and he shot slightly worse numbers from both the field (46 percent) and from deep (37.5 percent), though he did hoist up an additional shot attempt per game (18.1 FGA). His biggest improvements came as a playmaker and on the boards, where he posted career-highs of 4.4 rebounds and 4.5 assists, up from 3.1 and 3.5, respectively, a year prior. That was likely a result of Beal's backcourt mate, John Wall, missing 41 games due to injury. Beal was forced to take on more ball-handling responsibility, which likely contributed to his career-high 2.6 turnovers per game as well. Still, Beal proved he could run the show when needed and ultimately garnered his first career All-Star selection. Looking forward to the upcoming campaign, the Wizards essentially return the same contributors and supporting cast from a season ago other than the switch at center from Marcin Gortat to Dwight Howard. Wall should be back to full strength from the get go, which could result in lessened assist totals. That said, with another All-Star in the lineup to absorb defenders, Beal should get more open looks and could up his efficiency as a shooter after a slight down year. Don't expect Beal's scoring totals to take a hit, though, and his ability to do a little bit of everything should make him a top-tier shooting guard option on draft day.
Beal continued his steady improvement in a big way during the 2016-17 campaign, crossing the 20 points per game threshold. While not an All-Star, he played like one, posting 23.1 points, 3.5 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals across 34.9 minutes per game. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard also shot 48.2 percent from the field and made 2.9 threes per contest at a 40.4 percent clip. He’s managed to improve his effective field-goal percentage each year he’s been in the league as well, though it will seemingly be hard to top his efficiency from last season – that obviously shouldn’t be considered a knock, however, on his Fantasy value. There are no shortages of big games when deploying Beal in Fantasy, either, as he recorded 13 games with 30-plus points and 20 games with five-plus assists. While he only recorded one double-double on the year, those are rare from the shooting guard slot. Overall, at just 24-years-old, Beal has still yet to enter his prime, making for a promising Fantasy pickup. He has top-5 shooting guard upside in Fantasy and potential to land in the top-25 of all Fantasy players during the 2017-18 campaign.
With a career average of 16.0 points per game and an excellent 39.7 percent conversion rate from three-point land, Beal has firmly established himself as the unquestioned second banana in Washington behind three-time All-Star John Wall. Unfortunately, injuries have dogged him in all four seasons of his career, with the former No. 3 overall pick missing no fewer than nine games in each campaign. The Wizards evidently feel Beal’s immense talents outweigh his lack of reliability on the health front, as they re-signed the shooting guard to a five-year, $127 million contract in July. The pressure is now on the 23-year-old to prove he can stay on the court and improve his rapport with Wall, which could be a lot to ask considering the Wizards acknowledged the possibility of monitoring Beal’s playing time closely over the rest of his career in order for him to avoid developing another stress fracture to his right leg. It’s believed that any restrictions wouldn’t prevent Beal from logging 30-to-35 minutes per game, so that shouldn’t influence his outlook in a significant way heading into 2016-17 after he was able to average a career-high 17.4 points on a career-best 44.9 percent shooting from the field in 31.1 minutes per game a year earlier. That said, Beal’s durability concerns make him a riskier selection than most of the players who will be drafted near him in fantasy leagues, so owners will have to decide for themselves if the juice is worth the squeeze.
The only thing that separates Beal from reaching the top echelon of NBA shooting guards is his inability to stay healthy. In 2014-15, the fourth-year guard was limited to 63 games because of wrist, leg, and ankle injuries. He has not played in more than 73 games in any of his three seasons. It may be that the 6-5 guard is still growing into his body and will better learn his limits as he gets older. Hopefully, he can stay healthy in the new season to show off that beautiful three-point stroke. For the second consecutive season, Beal hit better than 40 percent of his three-pointers for 1.7 three-pointers per game. He averaged 15.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 33 minutes. His conversion rates were 43 percent on field goals and 78 percent on free throws. Beal bumped up his production in the playoffs with 23.4 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4.6 assists as the Wizards advanced to the conference semifinals before losing to Atlanta in six games. With John Wall, Beal forms one of the best young backcourts in the league, and he could join his teammate at the All-Star Game if he can stay healthy.
After celebrating his 21st birthday during the offseason, Bradley Beal is entering his third year in the NBA. He started 119 of the 129 regular-season games he played during his first two seasons and is locked in as the Wizards' shooting guard of both the present and future. Known for his shooting above all else, the former Florida Gator has made 40 percent of his three-point attempts through his first two seasons but hasn't been nearly as effective inside the arc. In 73 games last season, he averaged 17.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steal, and 0.2 blocks in 35 minutes per game. He shot a modest 42 percent from the field, despite connecting on 40 percent of his three-point field goals, of which he made 1.9 per game. He also attempted 2.6 free throws per game, converting at a 79-percent clip. Beal posted similar per-36 production in 11 playoff games but saw his averages jump across board, as he logged an impressive 42 minutes per contest. The Wizards' second unit often ran through Beal during the playoffs, and we can expect more of the same during the upcoming season. Already an established shooter and underrated defender, Beal is still young enough that there's hope he can make strides when it comes to ball-handling and creating his own shot. If that happens, he'll likely threaten the 20-ppg threshold, and could be one of the breakout stars of the 2014-15 season.
With John Wall sidelined until January with a knee injury last season, Beal was immediately vaulted into a starting role and endured the sort of struggles one might expect from a 19-year-old rookie. Though he averaged a respectable 12.1 points and 2.5 assists per game through the first two months of the season, Beal shot a wretched 35 percent from the field and 27 percent from three. It wasn't until the return of Wall that Beal truly thrived, as he rose his scoring to 15.5 points per game after December while showing dramatically improved efficiency (46 percent from the field, 48 percent from three). Beal's ascension was ultimately halted by a litany of injuries, with a stress injury in his right fibula ending his season in April after just 56 games. Beal was cleared for full contact in August and appears to be fully healthy for training camp, giving the Wizards a potent one-two punch in the backcourt for years to come with Wall agreeing to a five-year extension in the offseason. With a healthy Beal no longer tasked with creating his own offense, as he was forced to early last season, he should be able to minimize his turnovers and build on the progress he showed after Wall returned last season. A solid rebounder for his size, Beal has the potential to provide elite production once he reaches his peak.
The Wizards drafted Beal, a University of Florida product, with the third overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, hoping that his game would coalesce with backcourt mate John Wall, who has been saddled with selfish gunners like Nick Young and Jordan Crawford as his running mates through his first two seasons. Beal is praised for his impressive range from deep and high basketball IQ, and should provide an immediate upgrade at shooting guard. Despite being a bit undersized for an NBA two-guard, the 6-foot-3 Beal managed to pull down 6.7 boards a game and block nearly a shot per game for the Gators last season. Rebounding might not come that easy for Beal in the NBA, but he’ll still provide value elsewhere, as evidenced by his 1.4 steals per game. For what it’s worth, Beal netted 17.0 points per game and 4.8 rebounds per game in five summer league contests, although an ugly 1.8:2.2 assist-to-turnover ratio can’t be tolerated once the regular season begins. Beal might not set the world on fire coming out the gate, but his gifts as a shooter, and his underrated athleticism, should allow him to emerge as a viable fantasy contributor at some point during his rookie season.
