RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

McDermott followed up a quiet rookie season in which he appeared in only 36 games with a strong sophomore campaign. The former Creighton star logged 81 appearances, averaging 9.4 points and 2.4 rebounds per game while shooting 45.2 percent from the field. One of the most prolific shooters in college basketball in recent years, McDermott struggled from beyond the arc as a rookie (31.7%) but rebounded to shoot 42.5 percent from beyond the arc on 3.2 attempts per game last season. That's the kind of marksmanship the Bulls expected when they selected McDermott with the 11th overall pick in the 2014 draft. At this point in his development, McDermott is more of a three-point specialist than anything else, and there's where most of his fantasy value will come. He doesn't do enough as a rebounder or playmaker to bring considerable value, but McDermott's proficiency from deep, on what should be an increased volume this season, makes him worth a late-round consideration.

2015-16

The Bulls traded up in last year's draft to grab McDermott as they desperately needed to add some shooting to their roster. However, McDermott's rookie season was largely marred by a knee injury that limited him to only 36 games. He finished the season averaging 3.0 points, 1.2 rebounds, 0.2 assists, 0.1 steals, and 0.4 three-pointers in nine minutes per game. Although he is known for his three-point shooting, McDermott hit only 32 percent from behind the arc. The Bulls roster is largely unchanged from last season, but McDermott might be able to carve out a larger role this season if he can stay healthy. New coach Fred Hoiberg is expected to run a faster offense than coach Tom Thibodeau did last season, and he might implement some smaller lineups, possibly creating more opportunities for McDermott. His game is similar to that of fellow shooting guard/small forward Mike Dunleavy who just re-signed with the team for three years, so McDermott is going to have to make some significant strides on both ends of the court to get more playing time.

2014-15

One look at what Chicago gave up to get McDermott in this summer's draft speaks volumes about what the organization thinks of the former Naismith Award winner. Chicago gave up two 2014 first-round picks in addition to a 2015 second-rounder. McDermott spent four years at Creighton polishing his impressive offensive repertoire and now looks to translate his scoring prowess to the pros. In his senior season, he averaged 26.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.2 steals, and 0.1 blocks in 34 minutes per game. A frequent victim of double-teams and defensive focus, McDermott was still able to put together his most productive college season. The pick appears to make complete sense for the Bulls, who have lacked a scoring punch without Derrick Rose on the court. McDermott's value largely stems from his ability to shoot the rock. In his four years at Creighton, he shot 46 percent from deep. The Bulls, perhaps more than any other team in the NBA, could use another deep threat. Chicago ranked dead last in team scoring last season and 23rd in three-point percentage. As much as McDermott may struggle defensively, Thibodeau can't ignore the team's offensive impotence for another season. There should be enough stoppers to mask the rookie's weaknesses and allow him to contribute some major minutes for this Bulls team. Fantasy owners should practice patience in attempting to gauge exactly what kind of value McDermott provides, especially as a rookie. If he can continue to shoot it like he did in college, it could pay big dividends, particularly in head-to-head leagues that value three-point shooting.
