Dragic, at 30-years-old, had one of the best seasons of his career last season, bumping his points per game from 14.1 up to 20.3 while raising his effective field-goal percentage from 51.3 up to 52.7 percent. He also continued to provide decent value in both assists (5.8) and steals (1.2) per contest. His resurgence was due in large part to the Heat giving him more responsibility in running the offense, as he saw his usage rate jump from 21.9 to a team-leading 27.1 percent. Miami has made few roster adjustments heading into the 2017-18 campaign, with their biggest splash being the signing of Kelly Olynyk. As a result, Dragic will likely see a similar role next season and has a good chance of providing similar production across the board. While his assist numbers leave something to be desired, Dragic could likely be one of the better under-the-radar Fantasy producers at the point-guard slot next season in both year-long and daily formats.

  2. Goran Dragic 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Dragic’s 2015-16 season wouldn’t qualify as a disappointment, but his performance still left a little to be desired after he played spectacularly for the Heat upon coming over from the Suns in a deadline deal a year earlier. Since Dwyane Wade was able to stay relatively healthy during the season for one of the rare times in recent years, Dragic had to contend with sharing the play-making responsibilities, an adjustment he struggled with early on. To his credit, Dragic eventually found his footing as the season wore on, as he increased his per-game scoring in each month, highlighted by an April average of 17.4 points to go along with 4.9 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 0.8 steals in 31.8 minutes per game. It might be too ambitious to expect Dragic to maintain that April production for all of 2016-17, but with Wade departing for the Bulls this summer, the offense is now solely in the capable hands of the 30-year-old from Slovenia. While not an elite fantasy point guard, Dragic has been a steady asset over the last few years and should benefit from a spike in usage rate without Wade around to play the isolation game. In addition to providing quality outputs as a scorer, rebounder and assist man, Dragic has historically been one of the more efficient point guards from the field, holding down a 47.1 percent career mark. He’s therefore a candidate to provide sneaky value in the middle rounds of drafts.
  3. Goran Dragic 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    Dragic was traded to Miami at last year's trade deadline and elected to sign a five-year, $90 million contract in July to stay with the team and serve as the starting point guard for the foreseeable future. Dragic appeared in just 26 games for the Heat last season but made the most of his time, posting averages of 16.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.1 steals in nearly 35 minutes per game while shooting 50 percent from the field. Entering the 2015-16 season, Dragic will look to have a similar, if not greater, impact with more talent surrounding him, as by the time he joined the team last February, Chris Bosh had been ruled out for the season. Dragic is at his best when the ball is in his hands and he has command of the offense. The versatile guard has the ability to finish at the rim and hit an outside jumper on a fairly consistent basis while serving as a positive contributor across the box score. The addition of Bosh sets up for a lot of pick-and-roll or pick-and-pop opportunities between the two, which could mean Dragic is in for a year that rivals his breakout 2013-14 season.
  4. Goran Dragic 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Dragic is entering his seventh year in the NBA and is coming off a breakout campaign. Last season, he averaged 20.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, 5.9 assists, and 1.4 steals in 35 minutes per game. He shot an extremely efficient 51 percent from the field on 14.4 attempts to go along with a 41-percent mark on 3.9 attempts from three. Dragic also shot 76 percent from the free-throw line while taking 5.5 attempts per game. This season, Dragic will have a little more help in the backcourt, as the Suns added point guard Isaiah Thomas in free agency. Eric Bledsoe is also expected to return healthy, though Bledsoe could still leave as a restricted free agent. After averaging a career-high in points and field goal percentage last year, Dragic figures to remain the go-to-guy for the Suns' offensive attack in 2014-15. Dragic will contribute to fantasy teams with his scoring, threes, and steals, while adding a solid amount of assists from the point guard position. As he heads into the season as the main piece in the Suns' fast paced system, Dragic looks to be among the top fantasy options at point guard.
  5. Goran Dragic 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    The unenviable task of replacing future hall-of-famer Steve Nash fell to Goran Dragic, and Dragic rose to the occasion. His 14.7 points per game led the team in scoring, but he continued to get teammates involved, to the tune of 7.4 assists per game, while also contributing 3.1 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 34 minutes per game – all career-best numbers. He'll continue to be one of the primary offensive threats on a Suns team that promises to be among the league's worst. The arrival of Eric Bledsoe could theoretically cut into Dragic's role, but the Suns' current plan will put the two guards in the backcourt together, and to have Ish Smith and/or Kendall Marshall back up the point.
  6. Goran Dragic 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    Opportunity knocked for Dragic last season in Houston when Kyle Lowry was sidelined in March with a bacterial infection, and Dragic didn’t disappoint. He averaged 15.0 points and 7.4 assists in the starting point guard gig in March, and stepped up that production to an even greater extent in April, registering 18.9 points and 7.7 assists per game, while also posting his first career triple-double. As an unrestricted free agent this summer, Dragic signed a lucrative deal to be the starter for the Suns, the team he made his NBA debut with 2008. He has big shoes to fill with the departure of Steve Nash to the Lakers, but will have an intriguing cast of teammates to work with, including Marcin Gortat, Michael Beasley, and former Rockets teammate Luis Scola. It wouldn’t be completely surprising to see Dragic replicate his April averages on a nightly basis throughout the season, but his March statistics may be more representative of his true talent. Dragic shoots well for a point guard, making 46.2 percent of his attempts last season, though that number could plummet as he assumes more of the scoring burden. Dragic will also need to trim his turnovers to be a top-tier fantasy point guard, as he averaged 4.3 turnovers per 48 minutes last season.
  7. Goran Dragic 2011–12 Preseason Outlook
    Dragic is a true point guard who can also knock down the three. He even had a triple-double while filling in for an injured Kyle Lowry down the stretch last year. He's going to compete with Jonny Flynn to be Lowry's backup, but is the type of player who could immediately step in and average seven-plus assists were Lowry to get hurt.
  8. Goran Dragic 2010–11 Preseason Outlook
    Dragic showed flashes of his potential while coming off the bench for the Suns last season, including a 26-point outburst against the Spurs in the playoffs. He'll be in a reserve role once again, but look for Dragic to see additional playing time now that Leandro Barbosa has been traded to Toronto.
  9. Goran Dragic 2009–10 Preseason Outlook
    Dragic was brought in to be the eventual replacement for Steve Nash at point guard, but he didn't show much as a rookie to indicate he'd be ready for the job any time soon. With Nash signed to an extension the Suns seemed to reach the same conclusion, so the Slovakian will have a couple more seasons to learn the ropes and adjust to the North American game.
  10. Goran Dragic 2008–09 Preseason Outlook
    Dragic drew comparisons in the Euroleague to Tony Parker due to his penchant to attack the basket, but he's not close to reaching that level yet. This season he'll be relied on mainly to give Steve Nash a rest, provide some physical defense off the bench and put a lot of work in at practice improving his outside shot.
