2015-16 Fantasy Basketball Outlook

The man known as the "Manimal" is arguably the biggest star for the Nuggets, and they'll need him to be special if they are to be successful in 2015-16. As an undersized power forward, Faried is one of the most ferocious rebounders in the league, and he's simply a fun player...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

Faried played in 80-of-82 games for the second straight season in 2013-14, while averaging a career-high 13.7 points on 54 percent shooting, 8.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.9 blocks in 27 minutes per game for the Nuggets. What makes Faried intriguing for the 2014-15 season is the fact that, after the All-Star break last season, he averaged 18.8 points on 55 percent shooting, 10.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 31 mpg. With the expected additions of a healthy Danilo Gallinari returning from a torn ACL and J.J. Hickson (knee) and JaVale McGee (leg) returning from injury, the Nuggets frontcourt is going to be littered with varied options for coach Brian Shaw. Faried should be surrounded by playoff caliber talent and flourish as a reliable rebounder and opportune scorer for fantasy owners this season. While his role as the starting power forward seemed constantly in question last season, the fact that Faried staked his claim to the job last season - and was named the starting power forward for the US national team for the FIBA World Cup - should guarantee him a healthy and consistent role this season.

2013-14

Faried finished his strong sophomore season with averages of 11.5 points (55 percent from the field, 61 percent from the line), 9.2 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks in 28 minutes per game. His numbers improved across the board from his rookie season, and as a rising centerpiece in the Nuggets frontcourt, Faried could build off his strong 2012-13 campaign with another solid season. He has the potential to become a double-double threat every night, making him a viable fantasy option. In addition to that, Faried's ability to grab steals from the power forward position can give owners a competitive advantage. Faried averaged just 28 minutes per game last season under coach George Karl. Now under a new coach and system, if he breaks the 30-minute mark on a consistent basis, Faried could be up for a breakout season. His willingness to get dirty on the boards, as well as making exciting hustle plays on the offensive end, makes him a fan favorite. He will head into his third season at 23 years of age, with much more room for improvement in his bright future.

2012-13

Faried surprised basketball watchers in 2011-12 when he ended up starting 39 of the 46 games he played. He wasnít getting off the bench much early in the season, but coach George Karl was won over by Fariedís energy and work on the boards. He averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 22.6 minutes per game, numbers that bumped up to 11.7/8.4/1.14 in 25.2 minutes per game after the All-Star break. Faried still has some work left to polish and extend his offensive game, and itís not out of the question that he picks up a few more shots per game. The Nuggets revamped in the offseason, adding Andre Iguodala, while getting rid of Aaron Afflalo and Al Harrington. There should be some extra shots available for Faried, who should line up as Denverís starting power forward to start the season.

2011-12

He's a monster on the boards. It's likely he'll develop into a solid power forward down the road, but the club has a lot of size up front so it's going to be tough for Faried to crack the rotation.
