2018 Fantasy Outlook
Joining a Pacers team that lost both Paul George and Darren Collison, Bogdanovic was able to earn a spot in the top unit right away with his new organization, starting all 80 games he played in. The 29-year-old didn't provide much ancillary production with averages of just 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists. However, he gave the team a spark offensively on a night-to-night basis and had the ability to spread the floor with a consistent three-point stroke. In 30.8 minutes per game, Bogdanovic finished with a career-high 14.3 points, while hitting 1.9 three-pointers at a 40.2 percent clip. In the offseason, the Pacers extended fairly sizable contracts to both Doug McDermott and Tyreke Evans, both of whom have the ability to play small forward and could cut into Bogdanovic's workload. At this point, Bogdanovic's starting role appears to be safe, though that could change at any point in the season if he falls into a lull. Look for Bogdanovic to remain relevant in deeper leagues due to his spectacular percentages and ability to rack up points and three-pointers. That said, Fantasy owners still may want to temper expectations a bit due to the team's offseason signings. Read Past Outlooks

Leads way with 23 points in loss
FIndiana Pacers
April 17, 2019
Bogdanovic accounted for 23 points (9-21 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, four steals and three assists in 35 minutes during Wednesday's loss to Boston.
Bogdanovic had an excellent all-around game, increasing his production in every category from a lousy Game 1 performance. The veteran forward nearly won the game for the Pacers with two three pointers within the final two minutes but ultimately came up short. Bogdanovic' been the most impactful Pacer for the first two games and single-handedly made their offense on several occasions. He'll continue to garner a large workload, but will need teammates to step up in order to prevent another fourth-quarter collapse from happening in Game 3 on Friday.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Bogdanovic began the 2016-17 campaign as a member of the Nets, though was dealt to the Wizards at the trade deadline to bolster the team’s bench for the postseason. A 6-foot-8 forward, Bogdanovic’s main draw is his marksmanship, as he drilled 1.8 threes per game at a 36.7 percent clip last season en route to 13.7 points. Though he doesn’t provide much by way of supplementary statistics, posting just 3.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game last year, the 28-year-old’s ability to heat up quickly keeps him Fantasy relevant in a variety of formats. For example, he collected 16 games with at least 20 points and 22 games with at least five rebounds last season. That, of course, comes with poor performances too, making him especially risky for use in DFS. He’ll be joining a new team, the Pacers, for the 2017-18 campaign. While it’s unclear if he’ll be in the starting lineup from day one, the Pacers have subpar depth at the forward slot, making it realistic to expect he’ll garner at least a similar workload to the 25.7 minutes per game he saw last year.
In his second NBA season, Bogdanovic emerged as a reliable source of scoring on the wing, finishing with averages of 11.2 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game in 79 contests. Bogdanovic's numbers were inconsistent to begin the year, but he came into his own after the All-Star break, highlighted by a month of March in which he moved into the starting lineup and averaged 16.9 points and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 49.7 percent from the floor and nearly 41 percent from three-point land. A December injury to Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is what initially opened the door for Bogdanovic, but even with Hollis-Jefferson expected back at full strength this season, Bogdanovic projects to remain in the starting lineup at the other wing spot. Brooklyn brought in Jeremy Lin and Randy Foye as free agents, but Lin will play more at the point guard spot, while the 33-year-old Foye is a backup at this point in his career. Competition for playing time will come primarily in the form of journeyman Sean Kilpatrick and rookie Caris LeVert. As a result, Bogdanovic will have a strong chance to replicate his 2015-16 production.
As a 26-year-old rookie last season, Bogdanovic appeared in 78 contests, averaging 9.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.2 three-pointers in 24 minutes per game. Bagdanovic is known as a shooter, hitting 45 percent from the field, 36 percent from deep, and 82 percent from the free-throw line. Despite his ability to shoot well, Bogdanovic does little else that shows up in the box score. He's in line to start at shooting guard this season, but that may not make him worth rostering in standard leagues. Through 28 starts last season, Bogdanovic averaged 9.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.0 three-pointer, and 0.5 steals in 30 minutes per game. He was given plenty of minutes, but the fact that his value is so directly tied to his efficiency shooting the ball makes him a liability from game to game in fantasy. If he's not hitting his shots, Bogdanovic is going to struggle to provide good fantasy value. Wayne Ellington was signed to a one-year deal in the offseason, and coach Lionel Hollins already worked with Ellington in Memphis, so there's a possibility that familiarity could lead to Bogdanovic getting benched in favor of Hollins going with Ellington. It's a battle worth watching in camp.
The 31st overall pick in the 2011 draft, Bogdanovic has played professionally overseas since 2004. He signed a three-year, $10 million deal with the Nets in July and expects to be a part of the rotation. Just how the 6-8 Croatian fits in remains to be seen, but he'll likely see time at both small forward and shooting guard. He likely won't provide much in terms of rebounds or assists, but he's a career 36-percent three-point shooter who brings a much-needed perimeter presence. Heading into the season, he figures to slot in as the Nets' fourth shooting guard behind Joe Johnson, Alan Anderson, and Jarrett Jack. He'll battle Anderson, who has a similar style of play, for time at both wing spots.
