2014-15 Fantasy Basketball Outlook

Rondo got a late start to the season in 2013-14 after his recovery from knee surgery. Missing about a year of competitive basketball led to some rust in the point guard's game last season, and he never played on the second night of back-to-back sets. By the end of the season...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Rondo is well-established as one of the NBA's top point guards and a perennial leader in assists – he's averaged 11 or more in each of the last three seasons. But this year, his status is so uncertain – the only category where he'll lead the league is question marks. First off, he's recovering from a partially-torn ACL. He's expected to miss the first month of the season at minimum, so figure he's on the shelf for roughly 25-30 percent of the Celtics' 82 games. When he does return, he'll be leading a team that bears almost no resemblance to the one he left back in February. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry are gone, replaced by younger, much less talented teammates. Can Rondo continue to generate big assist numbers when he's passing to Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger instead of Pierce and KG? Will his new teammates create enough space for him to operate? Or will defenses be able to lay off and dare him to shoot? And what happens when he does return? Will Danny Ainge complete his rebuild by trading Rondo at the deadline?

2012-13

Rondo has increased his assist average in each of the last five seasons, topping out with an impressive 11.7 dimes per game last season. Why so many? Rondo passes, in part, because he can't shoot. Defenses don't have to defend him at the three-point line, but they do have to worry about him driving past. When they sag off, he has all the time in the world to find a teammate cutting to the basket or coming off a curl or screen--he's like a quarterback with an excellent offensive line. When he does have the opportunity to drive, though, he's a very good finisher and has improved his mid-range game significantly (just ask the Miami Heat--he lit up LeBron and company with his pull-up game.)

2011-12

When last we saw Rajon Rondo, he was trying to lead the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals, playing one-handed through the pain of a dislocated elbow. He actually played with a very different handicap for much of the season; he was badly affected by the C’s trade of Kendrick Perkins, and has admitted that his play suffered as a result. And that should be alarming to the rest of the league. Because even after an ineffective half-season, he finished the year with a career-best averages of 11.2 assists and 2.3 steals (which tied his 2009-10 average). Opposing teams’ defensive strategies may have contributed to Rondo’s big assist totals. He’s such a bad outside shooter, opposing defenders tend to sag off and prevent his drives, daring him to shoot from the outside. But that gives Rondo all day to find teammates like Ray Allen and Paul Pierce running off screens. Don’t be alarmed by Rondo’s ugly three-point percentage; he won’t take enough shots to impact team stats.

2010-11

Once upon a time, Rajon Rondo was considered the Celtics' big weakness. Today he might be their biggest strength. Rondo continued to develop into one of the league's top point guards last season, leading the league with a career-high 2.33 steals, posting new career bests in scoring (13.7 ppg), assists (9.8 apg), and shooting (50.8 FG%) with respectable totals in rebounding (4.4 rpg). If he had any kind of outside shot – just enough to keep defenses honest – he'd be near-unstoppable. Unfortunately, shooting anything other than a layup can be an adventure for Rondo. Defenses routinely sag off him to prevent dribble penetration – daring him to shoot – he made just 17 threes all season, and from the line he has never topped 65 percent shooting in a season. His poor shooting is the biggest reason he fell behind Derrick Rose, Chauncey Billups and Russell Westbrook on Team USA's depth chart for the World Championships, prompting Rondo to remove his name from consideration just before the final cut. That could become a motivator for him this season.

2009-10

Last season, Rajon Rondo emerged as one of the top young point guards in the game and an excellent floor leader for Boston’s lineup of superstars. He posted significant improvements across-the-board last season, setting new career highs in points (11.9 ppg), assists (8.2 apg), rebounds (5.2 rpg) and shooting (50.5% from the floor). Like Tony Parker, Rondo does most of his scoring from the paint, using his excellent handle to penetrate and his athleticism to finish; he also doesn’t take – or make – many threes. Unlike Parker, he’s a terrific defender, using his long arms to ball-hawk to the tune of two steals per game. And at a mere 23 years old – he won’t turn 24 until February 2010 – Rondo has plenty of room to improve. And yet, the Celtics spent a good portion of this offseason shopping Rondo. Team president Danny Ainge even bad-mouthed his point in the press, saying “He’s stubborn. He doesn’t always take direction well. He’s very bright and knows what he needs to do to be successful. But sometimes he doesn’t understand what the team needs to be successful.” Has Rondo fallen out of favor with Boston’s management? Probably not. But he’s one of the most tradable commodities on a team that could get old in a hurry. It seems fair to write off Ainge’s comments as “tough love” for a player that is still improving.

2008-09

With all the attention paid to Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, Rondo thrived last season. It takes all-star caliber teammates to hide Rondo’s gaping flaw – his jump shot. With so many gifted scorers on the team, Rondo never had to keep defenses honest with his shot. In fact Rondo averaged 49-percent shooting, getting tons of layups. With all-stars surrounding him, Rondo should average more than 5.1 apg. But Pierce and Allen can also handle the ball, and coach Doc Rivers limited the second-year pro to just 29.9 mpg. More playing time should come this year, but he’ll never have the ball in his hands as much as other points. Defensively, Rondo creates havoc on and off the ball, averaging a whopping 1.66 steals in just 26.7 minutes per game for his career. Expect that number to hover around 2.0 with increased playing time. Rondo’s also a good rebounder from the position. The Celtics aren’t asking him to do too much as a playmaker, but Rondo produces in a few categories and is a capable second point guard on a fantasy team.

2007-08

Rondo opens the season in charge of the most-talked about team in the NBA. The additions of Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to play alongside Paul Pierce give Rondo a chance to pad his assist numbers from his rookie season (3.8 apg). As a starter in 2006-07, Rondo averaged 5.8 assists per game – even though he was without Paul Pierce for a stretch and in a job-share arrangement with Delonte West. He’s an above-average defender (1.6 spg) and a very good playmaker, so there is some fantasy value here, but he’s a poor shooter from everywhere. That may not hurt the team because Allen can space the floor and scoring threats abound inside and out. Just don’t expect big point totals from Rondo.
