2018 Fantasy Outlook
Simmons, who went undrafted out of Houston in 2012, wrapped up his first campaign outside of the Spurs’ organization last season. In joining Orlando, he saw his role expand from 17.8 minutes per game and eight starts to 29.4 minutes per game and 50 starts. As a result, he had a career year, averaging 13.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists while shooting a solid 46.5 percent from the field and making 1.0 three per tilt at 33.8 percent. Simmons was also able to put together 13 efforts of at least 20 points -- two of which were 30-point games. Improved playmaking ability was on display as well, with Simmons recording nine performances with between five and nine assists. Despite the breakout campaign, minutes may be harder to come by for Simmons this season. The Magic dealt with a myriad of injuries across all positions last season, allowing Simmons to see extra run. Still, Simmons’ versatility to play shooting guard, small forward and even some point guard should allow him to maintain a sixth-man role. That said, given his relatively low-volume role, he can probably be avoided in most standard Fantasy drafts. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, $20 million contract with the Magic in July of 2017. Traded to the 76ers in February of 2019.
Plays three minutes in Sunday's win
GPhiladelphia 76ers
February 10, 2019
Simmons had three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 FT), two assists, and one rebound in three minutes during Sunday's 143-120 win over the Lakers.
ANALYSIS
Simmons (abdomen) missed Friday's game against the Nuggets but made his 76ers debut in this one. However, the team boasts solid depth along the wing and Simmons isn't much of an outside shooter, so his fit with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons is questionable at best. As a result, the newly-acquired Simmons shouldn't be expected to log anywhere near as many minutes as he was averaging for the Magic.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Simmons, at 28-years-old, will be entering his third year in the NBA during the 2017-18 campaign. He spent the past two seasons with the Spurs, largely playing a reserve role to star wing Kawhi Leonard. Last year, he posted 6.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 17.8 minutes per game while shooting 42.0 percent from the field and 29.4 percent from long range. Simmons did draw eight starts, however, but posted a subpar 7.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists across 28.3 minutes per game while shooting 32.9 percent from the field. Despite joining a new team, he likely won’t see his role expand much considering the Magic have plenty of backcourt depth, including Evan Fournier, Arron Afflalo, Terrance Ross and Jonathan Issac. As a result, Simmons can likely be avoided in most Fantasy formats, as his past production mixed with his new situation don’t exactly look to have the makings of a breakout campaign.
