Past Fantasy Outlooks
A solid rookie year gave Johnson high expectations going into the 2016-17 campaign, but he ended up falling off a bit. While he played in a career-high 77 games, his minutes fell from 23.1 per game to just 17.8. That translated to averages of 4.4 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists, which kept him off the radar in the majority of Fantasy formats. The Pistons ended up losing one of their best offensive threats in Kentavious Caldwell-Pope during free agency, but traded for Avery Bradley and selected Luke Kennard in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft, so the shooting guard position should be a little crowded. However, coach Stan Van Gundy has already said he's going to get Johnson more minutes at small forward and could even potentially put him at power forward in small ball lineups, which makes sense given Johnson's 6-foot-7 frame. Marcus Morris was sent to the Celtics in the Bradley trade, which should open more playing time for Johnson. The Pistons could go with a starting lineup that features Johnson, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond in the frontcourt, although they could also go a bit bigger with Harris, Jon Leuer and Drummond. Either way, Johnson is going to get every opportunity to battle for a starting role, which should mean more minutes and better production in his third NBA season. While Johnson's value is certainly on the rise, he would also benefit with a better deep ball, as he shot just 29.2 percent from the three-point line last season.
Johnson's rookie campaign could best be described as uneven, as the 20-year-old used his combination of size and aggressiveness to torch the competition during the summer league, but wasn't able to consistently take advantage of those traits once the regular season began. The swingman most notably struggled to find much rhythm as a shooter, hitting just 37.5 percent of his attempts from the field. That lack of efficiency resulted in coach Stan Van Gundy handing heavy minutes to starting wings Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Marcus Morris in the first half of the season, but Johnson gradually earned a larger role as the team's sixth man when the calendar flipped to 2016. Over a 14-game stretch from Jan. 14 through Feb. 6, Johnson enjoyed his best run of the season, averaging 12.4 points on 45.7 percent shooting from the floor to go with 4.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 three-pointers across 26.9 minutes per game. However, that success would prove short lived, as Johnson ended up spraining his shoulder later in February and then reverted back to his poor shooting ways upon returning to action in March. In more consciously embracing his offensive strengths -- namely, using his 6-foot-7 frame to bully smaller wing defenders -- Johnson could tap further into his considerable upside in 2016-17, especially if he uses training camp as an opportunity to refine his jumper and ball handling. He'll likely open the season in a bench role, but with some expected skills growth, Johnson should at least benefit from an uptick in minutes.
Johnson was a controversial pick at No. 8 in this summer's draft, because the media was so self-obsessed with the intrigue surrounding Justise Winslow that they balked at the idea of drafting another small forward before Winslow, but any chatter of the Pistons making a mistake was quickly shut down by Johnson's spectacular showing at the Orlando Summer League. Through five games, he averaged 16.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.8 steals, and 1.0 block in 27 minutes per game while shooting 57 percent from the field and 41 percent from three. Those statistics are good, but they don't tell the whole story. Johnson was so good at summer league that he was considered by many in the media to be the best player at any of the three summer leagues, and coach Stan Van Gundy was impressed enough to suggest that Johnson will challenge for a starting spot at small forward or shooting guard against Marcus Morris and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the two players currently projected to start over Johnson. He has a chance to be a do-it-all player, and with the agressiveness and intelligence with which he plays both sides of the ball, Johnson's potential could be in the MVP range at some point in his career. Dynasty players should have him on their radar.
