2014-15

From the heights of Linsanity with the Knicks to backing up Patrick Beverley in Houston, the fall of Jeremy Lin was noticeable last season. That's not to say Lin had a bad season in his final go-around with the Rockets, it's just that from the unsustainable hype in New York, things had fallen off somewhat. Lin still managed to average 12.5 points, 2.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks, and 1.2 three-pointers in 29 minutes per game through 71 games off the bench last season. He shot 45 percent from the field on 9.3 attempts and 82 percent from the line on 3.7 attempts. Lin turned into more of a three-point shooter last season, with 35 percent of his total field goal attempts coming from downtown, where he hit a career-high 36 percent of those shots. Now in Los Angeles, on the final year of his three-year, $25 million deal, Lin should have chances to be a part of the starting backcourt with Kobe Bryant and be in a great position to improve on last season's numbers. With the only competition being a facsimile of Steve Nash, Lin should look to contribute 30-32 minutes a night and could benefit while playing next to a legend in Bryant. Fantasy owners would be wise to keep an eye on Lin during drafts this season.

2013-14

Lin didn't really live up to the hype in his first season as a Rocket – but then, how could he? He overcame some minor injuries and started all 82 games at point guard, but he finished the year with somewhat pedestrian averages of 13.4 points, 6.1 assists and 3.0 rebounds. The biggest complaints about Lin's game are his outside shooting and his defense, and both were problems in Houston, as he converted under 34 percent of his threes and really struggled to defend quicker guards. But all hope is not lost. The arrival of Dwight Howard could really benefit Lin this season; Howard's presence in the paint should negate some of Lin's defensive problems, and on the offensive end, the pair should make a very imposing pick-and-roll combination. Will we see the heights of Lin-sanity again? Probably not. But Lin could be primed for a bounce-back season this year, and should be regarded as a post-hype sleeper.

2012-13

Perhaps you've heard of him? Had a pretty nice run with the Knicks earlier this year, wound up on the cover of Sports Illustrated twice and on Time Magazine's most influential list. But the Knicks weren't as enchanted with Lin as everyone else--even before they let him walk to Houston, general manager Glen Grunwald was working to bring in help at Lin's position. That may have been a matter of fit. At this point in his career, Lin is more scorer than floor general, better at creating for himself than setting up teammates. That should serve him well in Houston, a painfully young team in the midst of a rebuilding effort, and it won't be terribly surprising if Lin is able to average 17-20 points per game the way he did at the height of Lin-sanity. Lin has a fair share of flaws in his game. He isn't much of a jump shooter, and he turns the ball over a lot. He'll have to adjust to the fact that defenses know he's coming now. With Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic leaving Houston, Lin will be the undisputed starter and leader on the Rockets. If the magical ride he took us all on last season was at all grounded in reality, Lin should be a solid fantasy contributor as long as he’s healthy this season.

2011-12

The 6-2, 180-pound point guard was claimed off waivers in December from the Warriors. With Lowry, Dragic and Flynn ahead of him, he's a long shot ot have a significant role.

2010-11

This year’s Summer League star wasn’t John Wall or DeMarcus Cousins, but rather an undrafted point guard from Harvard, of all places. Don’t expect much production, however, as limited athleticism and a large learning curve from the Ivy League to the NBA will prevent Golden State’s fan favorite from being fantasy-worthy.
