RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Young put up solid numbers in his mini-breakout 2012-13 campaign. He put up averages of 14.8 points (53 percent from the field, 57 percent from the line), 7.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.7 blocks in 35 minutes per game. Those numbers marked career bests throughout the stats board. With the Sixers in rebuilding mode, under newly hired head coach Brett Brown, and with a completely new system, Young will undoubtedly get ample opportunity to shine on both ends of the court, even when rookie Nerlens Noel returns to action. His uncanny ability to get steals at the power forward position will give fantasy owners a competitive advantage in many formats. Young could start the season more slowly than expected due to having to get accustomed to rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams at the helm, as well as adjusting to a new system. However, once the core of the Sixers team gets better adjusted to playing together, he will remain consistent in his strengths that lie in the intangibles he provides – solid field goal percentage, rebounds, steals and the occasional block.

2012-13

Young was once again a key reserve for the Sixers in 2011-12, coming off the bench in all but one game. Despite his role on the second unit, Young was fourth on the team in minutes played (28) and third in scoring (12.8). He was one of eight players in coach Doug Collins’ rotation that averaged at least 25 minutes a night. That kind of socialist playing time distribution tends to suppress everyone’s statistics, so Young enters the 2012-13 season low on pre-draft ranking lists. What could change for Young this season? With Andrew Bynum acquired via a trade from the Lakers, Spencer Hawes will shift down and start at power forward. Kwame Brown was also signed in the offseason to play center. Young was used almost exclusively as an undersized power forward last season. The extra size the Sixers added this offseason will still allow him to get some time as a backup power forward, but if he’s going to come close to averaging 28 mpg again, Young will have to find a way to push for minutes in the small forward rotation. That will be difficult with Evan Turner and Dorell Wright ahead of him on the depth chart there and Nick Young and Jason Richardson using most of the shooting guard minutes, stopping Turner and Wright from shifting down a position too regularly. We’re not counting Young out yet, but he’s a strong candidate to be a fantasy bust if he remains on the Sixers all season.

2011-12

Young was one of the Sixers' key reserves during the 2010-11 season, and despite being used off the bench in all but one game, he averaged the fourth most minutes played (26) on the team. Sixers coach Doug Collins asked Young to capitalize on his athleticism and slashing ability last season, resulting in a huge drop in his three-point attempts -- he only took 22 three-point shots in 2010-11 after attempting over 300 in his previous two years combined. His newfound commitment to attacking the rim led to Young posting a career-high 54.1 field-goal percentage for the season. He finished the season with averages 12.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.1 steals and just 1.2 turnovers while playing in all 82 games. While Young’s drop in three-point attempts takes away from a once promising component of his fantasy game, the improvements he has shown in his efficiency largely offset that. Young will enter the 2011-12 season with a similar role and should put up similar production to his previous campaign’s.

2010-11

With the exception of playing 2.5 fewer minutes per game last season than the one before, Young's 2009-10 was almost identical to his 2008-09 by fantasy standards. Young's main benefit is that (a) he's a power forward who hits threes (0.7 per game last year) and (b) he's decent enough across the board. Philly traded out Samuel Dalembert for Spencer Hawes this offseason, but Young is still likely to get 30-plus minutes and has some upside as a later-round pick.

2009-10

Young is a 6-8, 220 pound combo forward with excellent athleticism and good scoring ability from both inside and out. With Elton Brand healthy again Young is likely to spend a bit more time at the three this year. Young saw a big increase in minutes as a sophomore, and responded by almost doubling his scoring output (15.3 ppg) on good shooting from the field (49.5% FG). Young’s rebounding was a bit below expectation for a power forward (5.0 rpg), but with his length and athleticism he should improve on that front over time. If Young wants to move to the next level, though, he needs to start utilizing his long-distance shooting more. He has nice mechanics, a good stroke and he hits the trey at a reasonable clip (34.1% from long range). But he needs to get his 2.2 attempts/game up into the 4.5 range which would yield around 1.5 treys/game. He has that upside in the fast-paced Philadelphia offense, and if he takes advantage of it, he could develop in the Danny Granger mold into a viable fantasy impact player.

Young wasn’t one of the most hyped rookies of last season, but he acquitted himself well when given the opportunity. Playing primarily at power forward, Young shot just under 54 percent from the field and averaged 8.2 points and 4.2 boards in 74 games (22 starts). This year, Elton Brand will take over at the four spot, which will move Young back to his natural position at small forward – and where he could very well win a starting job.

The 76ers selected Young 12th overall in the 2007 NBA Draft and have high expectations for the 18-year old. He is a great athlete that will need time to develop, but he has the talent to make it happen. He averaged 14.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists as a freshman at Georgia Tech but will likely need a year or two before becoming a full time player. Young will start the season behind Andre Iguodala and Rodney Carney.
