2018 Fantasy Outlook
Beasley’s workload varied significantly last year, playing just 583 total minutes -- not giving him consistent opportunities to demonstrate his skillset. He did see 20-plus minutes on five occasions, however, averaging 8.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists. He put in a second year of summer league this July, looking especially locked in defensively (seven steals in three games). Beasley also averaged 16.0 points, but shot a worse percentage than during 2017 summer league. Considering the Nuggets’ lack of depth, Beasley should have an opportunity in training camp to compete for a backup role. However, it seems highly unlikely he turns Fantasy relevant.

Scores team-high 25 points Tuesday

April 9, 2019
Beasley amassed 25 points (9-13 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two steals, one assist, and one block in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 118-108 loss to the Jazz.
ANALYSIS
Beasley ended Tuesday's loss with 25 points in 31 minutes, his highest scoring game in over two months. The starters were run off the court for the Nuggets meaning the second unit saw additional run. He has scored in double-digits just twice in his past nine games prior to Tuesday and so there is certainly an element of risk in streaming him in for the final day of the regular season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
After being selected with the 19th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Beasley found himself buried on the depth chart throughout his rookie campaign and played in just 22 games. He put together an average of just 3.8 points across 7.5 minutes, as he was out of the rotation for much of the season. Most of Beasley's time came in the formerly known D-League, where he averaged 18.9 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.1 steals in 16 games last season. That gave a glimpse of what the 20-year-old can do, though there's obviously a severe talent gap between the two leagues, so Beasley will have plenty of work to do to become a contributor at the next level. Beasley could see a few more minutes during his sophomore campaign, but the fact that Gary Harris and Will Barton still sit ahead of him on the shooting guard depth chart, likely means Beasley isn't going to play a huge role. That should keep him off the Fantasy radar in most formats.
Beasley earned a reputation as an explosive player on both ends of the court during his freshman season at Florida State, averaging 15.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game before deciding to turn pro. A foot injury limited his ability to work out for teams before the draft, but the Nuggets were comfortable grabbing him at No. 19 to add to the team's backcourt depth along with No. 7 overall pick Jamal Murray. The Nuggets are now among the league's deepest teams, particularly on the wing, so Beasley may have difficulty carving out more than a minor role off the bench as a rookie. Beasley profiles best as a shooting guard long term, but he projects to open the year behind Gary Harris, Will Barton and Murray on the depth chart and could be in line for some extensive time in the D-League.
