2019 Fantasy Outlook
While McRae spent a limited amount of time with the Wizards last season on a two-way contract, he had a monster year with their G League affiliate Capital City Go-Go. In 31 G League appearances last year, McRae averaged 30.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.6 steals per game, which made him the top scorer in the league during the regular season. That scoring display combined with some solid appearances for the Wizards got McRae a one-year contract with Washington this offseason. The Wizards are fairly light on shooting guard depth this season, so McRae should have a real shot at being All-Star Bradley Beal's immediate backup. However, with Beal playing 82 games in back-to-back seasons while averaging over 36 minutes per game in each, McRae's time off the bench will likely be limited, putting a hard cap on his fantasy value for as long as Beal is healthy.

March 4, 2020
McRae contributed 15 points (5-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), three assists and two rebounds in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 loss to the Thunder.
ANALYSIS
McRae made an immediate impact in his first game with the Pistons, stepping up amid the absences of Bruce Brown (knee), Luke Kennard (knee) and Derrick Rose (ankle). While Brown could be on the verge of returning in the very near future, Kennard is expected to miss at least another week and Rose may be out for at least two weeks. As a result, McRae may be relied upon fairly heavily for at least the next handful of matchups.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2014
After spending his entire rookie season in the D-League, McRae got his first taste of NBA action last season, appearing in 22 games for the Suns and Cavaliers. The vast majority of McRae's minutes came in garbage time, but with the Cavs resting a number of regulars on the final night of the regular season, he erupted for 36 points, seven assists and four rebounds in a loss to Detroit. Despite the result, it was a statement game for McRae, who spent much of the year tearing up the D-League to the tune of 23.3 points, 5.3 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game. Cleveland chose to pick up McRae's team option for 2016-17, and while he may remain in the franchise's near-term plans, the 25-year-old will again struggle to find consistent minutes off the bench this season.
Jordan Mcrae is entering his rookie season in the NBA, having been drafted with the 58th pick this past June. In his final season at Tennessee, McRae averaged 18.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.7 steals, 1.0 blocks, and 2.1 three-pointers made in 32 minutes per game through 37 games. He shot 44 percent from the field on 13.8 attempts per game, 79 percent from the free-throw line on 5.7 attempts per game, and 35 percent from three-point territory on 6.1 attempts per game. McRae is 6-6 with a very long 7-0 wingspan but weighs only 180 pounds. He played four years of college ball and has shown the intelligence and maturity expected from prospects who remained in college, but that also makes him a few years older and makes his deficiencies in weight and strength harder to overlook. McRae is a two-way player, capable of scoring in the lane and from the perimeter, and able to block shots and defend multiple positions. He's especially skilled at drawing fouls to get to the free-throw line, averaging 9.3 free-throw attempts per game in the Las Vegas Summer League, where he earned All-Summer League second team honors. Despite his abilities and a strong summer league performance, McRae will not play with the Sixers this season. He will play in Australia to get more professional experience before the Sixers take a further look at him next offseason.
