2019 Fantasy Outlook
Snell joins Detroit after being traded from Milwaukee in the offseason. He averaged 6.0 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 17.6 minutes per contest in 2018-19, marking his fewest minutes since his rookie season. His role was reduced on a loaded Milwaukee team, but Snell will compete for a starting job in Detroit this season, playing with a less talented group. His three-point shooting (37.9 percent career) should be valuable to a Pistons team that lacked in that department a season ago. Snell doesn't offer much on the defensive end of the court, and he'll likely be a low-usage option on offense even if he sees his way to starter's minutes. Snell is highly unlikely to be fantasy relevant this season, even in deeper formats. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $46 million contract with the Bucks in July of 2017. Traded to the Pistons in June of 2019.
Returns Tuesday after early exit
FDetroit Pistons
November 13, 2019
Snell returned to Tuesday's 117-108 loss to the Heat after briefly departing to receive treatment for an unspecified injury, finishing the night with six points (2-7 FG, 2-6 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 24 minutes.
ANALYSIS
Snell may still appear on the Pistons' injury report ahead of the team's next game Friday in Charlotte, but his ability to return to action Tuesday quickly after departing suggests his health isn't much of a concern. The time spent in the locker room for treatment was still enough to keep him under 30 minutes for the first time since Nov. 1, ending a five-game streak of double-digit scoring in the process.

Snell saw his workload dip from 29.2 minutes to 27.4 minutes per game last season, which entailed a downturn in scoring, from 8.5 points to 6.9 points per game. That wasn't a result of poor three-point shooting, however, as he drilled 40.3 percent of his looks from distance. Considering the presence of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, as well as second-year wing Sterling Brown, it will remain difficult for Snell to see increased run. Fom a Fantasy perspective, Snell is essentially a points/threes specialist, and he doesn't provide either at great volume. As such, once again, Snell can mostly be avoided come draft day.
Snell became a legitimate starter for the first time in his four-year career last season, joining the Bucks’ starting five for all 80 games he participated in. While he didn’t post eye-popping numbers, he excelled in his role as a three-and-D wing and earned a four-year, $46 million contract with the Bucks over the summer. Not much of an inside scorer, Snell took 65.6 percent of his shots from beyond the arc, hitting them at a 40.6 percent. Though his role on the Bucks is significant, it doesn’t translate particularly well to counting stats, as Snell averaged just 8.5 points, 3.1 boards and 1.2 assists across his 29.2 minutes per game. Milwaukee has made few changes to their wing depth heading into the 2017-18 campaign, nearly ensuring Snell will see a similar workload. Considering he’s just 25-years-old, Snell should make some improvements to his game, though it would be surprising if he took a major leap. For that reason, Snell isn’t a particularly enticing Fantasy option and can likely be ignored in many formats, despite being a probable starter.
Snell took a step back in his third NBA season, averaging just 5.3 points and 3.1 rebounds per game and falling out of the rotation by season's end. The former first-round pick began the year as a starter, but his offensive struggles forced coach Fred Hoiberg to make a change, and Snell moved in and out of the starting lineup from December through February. Eventually, he was removed from the rotation altogether, racking up 16 DNP-CDs over the Bulls' final 22 games. While he's a versatile perimeter defender, Snell shot just 37.2 percent from the floor on the season. He knocked down a respectable 36.1 percent of his three-point attempts, but struggled in catch-and-shoot situations, hitting only 30.6 percent of his corner three-point looks, down more than 10 points from a season ago. Entering 2016-17, Snell could again have a difficult time carving out a regular role off the bench. Dwyane Wade will command a significant workload at shooting guard, while the addition of rookie Denzel Valentine presents another obstacle. Snell has also seemingly been passed up by Doug McDermott, so he's best left untouched in most fantasy formats.
Snell saw a slight increase in playing time in his second year in the league as he started 22 of the 72 games he played. He averaged 6.0 points, 2.4 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.4 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 1.0 three-pointer in 20 minutes per game. Snell improved his percentages across the board from his rookie season as he shot 43 percent from the field, 80 percent from the charity stripe, and 37 percent from behind the arc. He's a very good defender, and his ability to shoot from behind the arc makes him a valuable player to have out on the floor. The problem for Snell is that the Bulls already have Jimmy Butler, who has a similar skill set to Snell but excels in those areas much more than Snell does. There were calls last season for Snell to see increased playing time over veteran Kirk Hinrich, but former coach Tom Thibodeau stuck with his veteran on most nights. Butler will still eat up a lot of minutes, but Snell could see increased opportunities under new coach Fred Hoiberg.
Snell is entering his second season in the NBA after a quiet rookie year. The swingman averaged 4.5 points, 1.6 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 16 minutes per game while making 77 appearances last season. He struggled offensively, shooting just 38 percent from the field and 32 percent from behind the arc, both significant drop-offs from his final season at New Mexico. Snell looked much more confident in his second go-round at the Las Vegas Summer League, notching First-Team All-Summer League honors while averaging 20 points per game. The rangy Snell should see a spike in playing time with a year's worth of experience under his belt, just as Jimmy Butler did after one season under coach Tom Thibodeau. Unfortunately for Snell, one of the Bulls' bigger issues this season will be finding enough minutes to go around for their reserve players. With Mike Dunleavy and Butler returning, Snell will be hard-pressed to see a major jump in playing time, which will keep him from attaining any real fantasy value outside of deeper leagues.
