2019 Fantasy Outlook
Seemingly in an attempt to build Fultz's confidence, Sixers' coach Brett Brown started the point guard for the first 15 games of the season, despite Fultz still dealing with the shoulder issues that plagued him throughout his rookie season. While he averaged a solid 3.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.1 steals in 24.4 minutes as a starter, he posted just 9.0 points per game on 41.2 percent from the field, 30.8 percent from distance and 57.6 percent from the charity stripe. Following those 15 starts, Brown had Fultz come off the bench for the next four games, where his workload was reduced to 15.3 minutes per contest. Those were the last games he played for the 76ers. He was eventually diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and dealt to the Magic, who were in a better position to take on the inherent risk that Fultz presents. Since then, it's essentially been radio silence on Fultz's recovery, and there has been quite literally no indication as to whether or not he will be ready for the start of the 2019-20 season. A true best-case scenario would involve Fultz returning to his pre-draft form and playing up to the level of an elite talent, but that seems unlikely at this point. Fantasy owners have justification to select the point guard with the final pick in a standard draft, hoping Fultz can at least play at a starting-caliber level. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
A stellar freshman season at Washington earned Fultz the No. 1 overall selection in the 2017 NBA Draft and immediately made him one of the more intriguing rookies to consider drafting for Fantasy leagues. However, the season didn't turn out like most had hoped and a handful of different issues kept Fultz off the floor for all but 14 games. Most notably was a sore right shoulder, which impacted his ability to shoot consistently and make plays for his teammates. Adding on to that, those issues also impacted Fultz's confidence and that mental hurdle itself was also a contributor in the youngster's extended stay on the sidelines. While it was essentially a lost season, there were at least a few things put on tape that Fultz will be able to build on, including a surprising 13-point, 10-rebound, 10-assist triple-double that he notched in the final game of the regular season. With an offseason to clear his mind and essentially start over, look for Fultz to become a regular contributor in the Sixers' rotation. He's reportedly rebuilt his jumper from scratch, which is always concerning for those considering taking a risk on him before seeing the final product. That said, the Sixers don't necessarily have a ton of quality depth in the backcourt, so Fultz seems likely to take over backup point guard duties right away if T.J. McConnell doesn't somehow hold him off. Look for Fultz to be a late-round flier in most Fantasy formats due to his overall upside, but there's definitely concerns about him staying on the court and having any sort of consistency while debuting a brand new shooting stroke.
Fultz played just one season at Washington, during which he finished sixth in the country in scoring with 23.2 points per game while shooting 47.6 percent from the floor and 41.3 percent from deep. He was a lone bright spot for team, as they won just nine games, and posted 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game in addition to his great scoring. One of the main reasons Fultz makes for an intriguing prospect is due to his size, boasting a 6-foot-9.75 wingspan as a 6-foot-4 point guard. Questions still remain about whether or not he can become a transcendent player, but when paired with the full potential of the 76ers, he should become a contributor from Day 1. In the past, the Sixers have stated that Ben Simmons will play point guard -- a plan that may or may not change with Fultz's selection, as he’s a capable off-ball player. Regardless, it seems like he could see a 30-plus minute workload during his rookie campaign and should make for an intriguing Fantasy option. As it stands, he should probably be worth a look in the mid rounds of most Fantasy leagues. Out of all the rookies, however, he may be one of the few worth reaching for considering his projected role, workload and usage.
