Wiggins has been an increasingly utilized part of the Timberwolves offense over each of the past three seasons. He increased his field-goal attempts per game from 13.9 his rookie season, to 16.0 his sophomore season, and finally 19.1 last season. Over that stretch, he’s also managed to increase his effective field-goal percentage – a good sign for his development. Overall last season, Wiggins posted 23.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.0 steal across 37.2 minutes per game. He also shot 45.2 percent from the field and knocked down 1.3 threes per game at a 35.6 percent clip. The addition of Jimmy Butler and Jeff Teague to the Wolves may result in Wiggins seeing fewer touches than usual, however. Butler, a wing, averages 23.9 point per game himself. And, while Butler has shown improved ability as a ball-handler and passer, asking him to share the floor with Wiggins will likely result in someone getting the short end of the stick. With Butler undoubtedly the better player, Wiggins will probably end up deferring some of his touches to his new teammate(s). Wiggins certainly has potential to have a great Fantasy season, with a strong possibility to improve his efficiency, though his stock may be plateauing for the first time in his career.

  2. Andrew Wiggins 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    On the heels of a strong rookie campaign, Wiggins entered his sophomore season facing even loftier expectations. While he may have been overshadowed by Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns, Wiggins showed improvement, raising his scoring average by nearly four points per game and shooting a hair under 46 percent from the field. As was the case during his rookie year, Wiggins was more volatile from beyond the arc, closing the season shooting just 30 percent from three-point range on 2.3 attempts per game. However, he was much better over the second half of the season, converting at a 41.3 percent clip after the All-Star break, compared to just 24.4 percent before. Still, considering his physical gifts and high-profile status, Wiggins has yet to play to ascend to the level most expected when he entered the league as the No. 1 overall pick in 2014. Consistency has seemingly been Wiggins’ primary issue. While he recorded 10 30-point games last season, he had 33 games of fewer than 20 points, somewhat of a concerning number from a fantasy perspective for a player who doesn’t put up gaudy assist or rebounding numbers. That said, Wiggins is still very much an unfinished product, and he could hit a new phase in his development as Tom Thibodeau takes over for Sam Mitchell as head coach. Wiggins would be a very profitable middle-round fantasy player if he replicates his 2015-16 season, but if he makes the leap many around the league have been waiting for, he could return third or fourth-round value.
  3. Andrew Wiggins 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    Wiggins was the first-overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft but was dealt from Cleveland to Minnesota in the Kevin Love trade last summer. All he did after was average 16.9 points, 2.1 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 0.6 blocks per game en route to Rookie of the Year honors. Expected to be more of a defensive contributor than offensive in his first campaign, Wiggins benefited from a robust 36 minutes played in his rookie season, allowing him to be an excellent source of scoring for fantasy owners. His percentages still leave a bit to be desired (43 percent from the field, 31 percent from three-point-range, and 75 percent from the free-throw line), but those are still solid considering Wiggins is only 20 years old. Now firmly locked in as the Timberwolves' franchise player, Wiggins has tremendous upside due to his role, athletic ability, and improving supporting cast. It's also worth noting that Wiggins was phenomenal after the All-Star break, averaging 20.0 points in his final 29 games. If he can continue his development, particularly by improving his three-point shooting (0.5 three-pointers per game in 2014-15), Wiggins boasts perhaps the most upside of any young player in the NBA this season.
  4. Andrew Wiggins 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Andrew Wiggins came to Minnesota as part of the trade that sent Kevin Love to Cleveland. One of the most hyped prospects in recent memory, Wiggins will get to grow with the Timberwolves who hope that he is the next superstar wing. The Canadian-born forward spent one year at Kansas, where he averaged 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds. Wiggins showed off incredible athleticism and a nose for the ball in college. He could be an excellent offensive rebounder for his position. While he hit just 34 percent of his three-pointers, he has fluid form and should improve from long range as he matures. Other than his currently inconsistent perimeter shot, Wiggins also lacks ball-handling skills, and he tends to drift in games (highlighted by his four-point effort as Kansas lost to Stanford in the NCAA tournament). He scored at least 20 points four times last season, including 41 points in a loss to West Virginia on March 8. Wiggins' point production may be spotty as a rookie, but he will get plenty of playing time and should be matched up defensively against the opponent's top scorer. The rookie may not be able to live up to the hype bestowed upon him, but he should be a quality player who could grow into a superstar.
