Porter, at 23-years-old last season, burst onto the scene by establishing himself as one of the league’s premier three-point threats. Out of all qualified candidates, Porter ranked fourth in three-point percentage (43.4) en route to 13.4 points per game. That percentage was behind only Joe Ingles (44.1), Allen Crabbe (44.4) and Kyle Korver (45.1). He’s also one of the NBA’s better wing defenders (1.5 steals) and commits just 0.6 turnovers while snagging a solid 6.4 rebounds per game. Over the summer, the Wizards rewarded Porter’s impressive play by matching the four-year, $106 million offer sheet by the Nets. While he will likely still remain either the third, or fourth, option within the Wizards offense (competing with John Wall, Bradley Beal and Markieff Morris), his overall skill as a player makes him tough to resist in Fantasy. Despite his place in the pecking order, Porter still has big-game upside. Notably, on Nov. 9 against the Celtics, he posted 34 points (14-19 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 14 rebounds, four assists, three steals and three blocks across 38 minutes while committing no turnovers. While he’s relatively low-volume, Porter certainly warrants an early-round selection in most formats.

  2. Otto Porter 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Porter held down a full-time role on the Wizards’ top unit for the first time in his three seasons in the league in 2015-16, starting 73 of 75 games at either forward spot. With the move to the starting five came enhanced minutes, but Porter didn’t exactly break out in the way some had expected coming out of training camp. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 11.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.3 three-pointers in 30.3 minutes per game while shooting 47.3 percent from the field and 75.4 percent from the charity stripe, numbers that made him a low-end asset in shallower fantasy formats. Though he has an intriguing pedigree as a former No. 3 overall pick, it’s clear that, in terms of usage on the offensive end, Porter is still no better than fourth in the Wizards’ pecking order behind John Wall, Bradley Beal and Marcin Gortat. As such, it’s tough to count on the 23-year-old to notice a dramatic spike in his production in Year 4 unless one of those aforementioned players succumbs to a long-term injury that would conceivably open up more shot attempts and minutes for Porter. There’s still value to be had from Porter in certain fantasy formats and in real life as a developing 3-and-D wing who is also comfortable in the lower block, but so long as he remains a complementary piece in the Wizards’ attack, Porter’s ceiling remains a bit limited.
  3. Otto Porter 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    For the first two seasons of his career, the Wizards have treated Porter with kid gloves. He has played behind veterans Trevor Ariza and Paul Pierce. While Washington added Jared Dudley in the offseason, 2015-16 may be the season for the former Georgetown Hoya to come into his own. The third pick of the 2013 draft showed some signs in the playoffs with 10.0 points and 8.0 rebounds over the 10-game stretch. Overall, his second season was a modest improvement over his very quiet rookie year. Porter provided 6.0 points, 0.5 three-pointers, 3.0 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.6 assists, and 0.4 blocks. The small forward hit 45 percent of his field goals and 73 percent of his freebies. He appeared in 74 games with 13 starts and averaged 19 minutes. Porter has a diverse game that shows range beyond the arc, and he could be a quality defender with principles he learned under John Thompson III. Porter also showed a nice development curve in his two years as a Hoya, so he could be in for a breakout season, particularly if he can crack the starting lineup.
  4. Otto Porter 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    The third-overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, Otto Porter Jr. had minimal impact during his rookie season. He was thought to be one of the draft's more NBA-ready prospects and was considered by many to be a relatively safe pick. However, after losing the first month of his rookie season to a hip injury, Porter never emerged as a consistent part of the Wizards' rotation, as he was stuck behind both Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster at small forward. Porter ultimately played in just 37 games, averaging 2.1 points, 1.5 rebounds, 0.3 assists. 0.2 steals, and 0.0 blocks in nine minutes per game. Following his poor rookie season, Porter did provide cause for optimism this summer, averaging 19.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.3 blocks in six games at the Las Vegas Summer League. Just as encouraging as his strong counting stats, Porter shot 48 percent from the field and 39 percent from three-point range, albeit while making just 68 percent of his free throws. The Wizards still have a crowd at small forward with Paul Pierce and Martell Webster, but the team will likely find a way to work Porter in if he shows that he's much improved from last season. Porter may have an excellent opportunity to prove his worth early on, as Webster could miss the beginning of the year after undergoing back surgery in the offseason.
  5. Otto Porter 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Everyone knew the Wizards were going to take the Georgetown star with the third pick this summer, but his fantasy impact is much more up in the air. Porter is lauded for moving well without the ball, passing well, and playing solid defense. With his backcourt mates taking most of the shot attempts, Porter should be a great long-term fit for the Wizards, but, he'll probably receive sixth-man type minutes early on. He'll need a season of experience to hone his three-point shooting.
