RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Prior to the 2012-13 season, Sanders wasn't on many fantasy radars. During his sophomore campaign in 2011-12, Sanders played just 12 minutes per game to finish with averages of 3.6 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks. But once last season tipped off, it didn't take long for Sanders to establish himself as one of the hottest early-season waiver wire targets and a defensive fantasy beast. The 24-year-old capped his breakout campaign with averages of 9.8 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.8 blocks in 27 minutes per game. The Bucks rewarded Sanders for his big 2012-13 campaign by signing him to a four-year, $44-million deal this offseason, cementing him as one of the franchise's cornerstones for the next handful of years. Sanders' offensive skills are still raw and he needs to develop on that end of the court to be a truly elite fantasy option, but he was one of the top shot blockers in the league last season and figures to dominate that category again, making him a solid addition to any fantasy roster.

2012-13

Sanders appeared to be the odd man out in the Bucks� frontcourt, but the team used him as a starter during the preseason, so it seems the Bucks may have more in store for him than anticipated. Sanders will share the center duties with Dalembert and Przybilla, but there is an outside shot that he opens the year in the starting lineup to help monitor the minutes of his two veteran counterparts.

2011-12

Sanders’ rare athleticism at 6-11 helped him average over a block per game in his rookie season despite playing only 14 minutes per game. He should play a bit more in his second year, but he is still raw offensively and doesn’t provide much beyond blocks. However, if he makes some strides in his game and earns a bigger role, he could have some value for his swat totals alone.

2010-11

Sanders is an athletic, high-energy big man who can run the floor and might make an immediate impact as a shot-blocker, but 15 minutes per night seems like a best-case scenario, so it will be tough for him to produce much fantasy value as a rookie.
