RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Durant's shooting percentages all improved last season, and his 51 percent field-goal percentage and 91 free-throw percentage both marked career highs. His 42 three-point shooting percentage was his best rate since his sophomore season and easily marked his most efficient rate since he started attempting four-plus threes per game in 2009-10. Unfortunately, this jump in efficiency coincided with a dip in attempts, going from 5.2 hoists from long range in 2011-12 to 4.1 attempts per game last season. His attempts were down across the board last year, and not surprisingly, he dished out a career-high 4.6 assists per game, as he handled the ball a lot more with James Harden out of the picture. All this slight role change means is that Durant is as valuable as he's ever been in fantasy, and with the departure of Kevin Martin, the onus to carry the team for long stretches at a time will be even more enhanced in 2013-14.

2012-13

Durant won his third-straight scoring title last season, averaging 28 points per game while shooting a career-high 49.6 percent from the floor. He also had career highs in three-pointers per game (2.0), rebounds (8.0), assists (3.5), blocks (1.2). All of the Thunderís key rotation pieces remain intact, and they will undoubtedly be hungry to return to the NBA Finals behind Durant and Russell Westbrook. Whatís scary is that Durant is clearly still improving, and thereís no reason he canít put up even better numbers in 2012-13. He played in every game last season. Doing so for the second time in the last three years. Durant will surely be No. 1 on many draft boards this year, and itís hard to argue that heís not as valuable as any other player in fantasy due to his across-the-board contributions.

2011-12

Durant was the top-ranked fantasy player last season and should be the first player taken in almost all league formats this year because he contributes above-average stats in virtually every category. He was one of only two players to average over one block, three-pointer, and steal per game last season (Rudy Gay was the other). Durantís also a gamer; it takes a significant injury for Durant even to consider sitting out, and only four other players averaged more minutes last season. And for the second straight season, he led the league in scoring. But beyond his gaudy counting numbers, Durant is also efficient with the ball, shooting 46 percent from the floor and 88 percent from the line last season. Heíll be just 23 years old this year, meaning thereís still room for his game to grow. Itís legitimately possible that Durant could improve his rebound, assist, steal, block and three-point numbers over the next few seasons.

2010-11

Although some owners might be moving Durant up a notch in their draft lists because of LeBron's departure from the Cleve for a star-heavy situation in Miami, LeBron's situation doesn't really matter at all here: Durant was the better fantasy option last season, too. Of course, that's not to say it wasn't close Ė and, depending on league formats, there are probably instances where LeBron was more valuable Ė but given his performance in 2009-10 and that he's very likely still improving, Durant is now inescapably the number one player in fantasy basketball. Instead of looking at his obvious strengths (scoring, rebounding), it probably makes sense to address what might be Durant's only weakness: assists. Over his three years in the NBA, the Durantula has stayed pretty static here, recording 2.4, 2.8, and then 2.8 again per game. Will that number increase? Likely not by much. Thing is, it doesn't really need to improve for Durant to reign supreme in fantasy rankings Ė and that's because of his greatest strength. No, it's not scoring, but free-throw shooting. Last year, Durant not only shot 90 percent exactly (756-for-840) from the charity stripe, but he also led the league with 840 free-throw attempts on the season Ė or, just over 10 per game. Overall, between his ability to get to the line and his efficiency once there, Durant proved to be the best overall player in the free-throw shooting category, considerably outpacing players like Dirk Nowitzki and Chauncey Billups.

2009-10

Credit head coach Scott Brooks for realizing that the ĎDurantulaí was much better suited to small forward than shooting guard. The move allowed Durant to open his game up considerably and utilize every weapon in his offensive arsenal, vaulting him to an unprecedented level of production. During the 43-game stretch between his move to small forward and his ankle injury in late-February, Durant was flat out dominant, averaging 27.7 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.6 treys, 1.4 steals and 0.9 blocks on 49.3-percent shooting from the field and 43.8-percent shooting beyond the arc. The improvement in his shooting proficiency was astounding as his effective field-goal percentage on jumpers climbed from an anemic 39.7 percent in Ď07-Ď08 to a respectable 45.2 percent last season. Durant also showed marked improvement on the glass where he upped his defensive rebounding percentage from 9.9 percent to 15.1 percent. We are witnessing the makings of a superstar here.

2008-09

Durant entered the NBA with high expectations last season, and he fulfilled them by averaging more than 20 ppg on his way to the Rookie of the Year award. Durant struggled in the first half of the season as a volume scorer that shot only 40.2 percent from the field, but after the All-Star break he found his footing and averaged 21.9 points on 47.6-percent shooting from the field and 88.5 percent from the line. Durant is a long 6-10, with excellent range on his jumper and the ball-handling ability of a guard. He projects eventually to be an NBA small forward, but he played last season at shooting guard due to his lack of physical strength. Look for Durant to venture down low a bit more this season, which should help him maintain his good percentages while also adding to his rebound total (4.3 rpg). Durant is also a solid defensive contributor, averaging 1.9 combined steals/blocks as a rookie. Durant should be among the leading scorers in the league this year, and if adds a bit to his defensive contributions he could soon join the fantasy elite.

2007-08

Durant is this yearís prohibitive favorite to run away with the rookie scoring title and Rookie of the Year honors. He boasts the height and length of a power forward with the outside shooting touch and handle of a big guard. This year, his likeliest position is small forward, where he should be able to go over smaller defenders and around the bigger guys off the dribble. And heíll have plenty of opportunities to score on a Sonics team that lost Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis this summer. But scoring isnít the only entry on Durantís impressive resume. As a freshman at Texas last year, he was among the NCAA leaders in rebounding, and his quick hands produced 3.8 combined steals and blocks. The one area of concern is upper-body strength. Durant got a lot of attention for his inability to bench 185 lbs. at one of the pre-draft events. Expect him to get knocked down regularly, and to struggle at times on defense, until he fills out a bit and gets stronger.
