2019 Fantasy Outlook
Dunn took a step back statistically last season while being limited to 46 games due to knee and back injuries. His per-game averages plummeted nearly across the board, with assists and blocks being the lone exceptions, as he tallied 6.0 dimes and 0.5 blocks per game in both of the last two years. The lone encouraging developments were his improved free-throw and three-point shooting percentages, which rose from 73.7 to 79.7 percent and 32.1 to 35.4 percent, respectively, albeit on slightly less volume in both areas than the year before. It's clear that the Bulls aren't exactly sold on Dunn as the starting point guard of the future, as evidenced by the addition of Tomas Satoransky in free agency, the selection of Coby White in the mid-lottery portion of the draft, and the recurring trade rumors. Nevertheless, the 25-year-old point guard could still find himself in position to accumulate decent counting stats whether he's dealt or not, as Satoransky boasts the size and skill to play multiple positions and White isn't guaranteed to see a substantial load of minutes as a rookie. With that being said, the uncertainty surrounding Dunn's role going forward makes him a fairly risky pick across most fantasy leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Racks up six steals in loss

Dunn had eight points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six steals, five rebounds, and two assists in 29 minutes during Friday's 105-87 preseason loss to the Pacers.
Dunn had another nice game Friday, racking up an impressive six steals in the loss to the Pacers. He has been a nice surprise for the Bulls given how low his stocks were only two weeks ago. They may be looking to trade him and if that is the case, could run him out there to begin the season. He has the ability to rack up steals and assists when he is on the floor and so those looking for particular categories at the backend of drafts could do worse.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The fifth overall pick in 2016, Dunn finally got a chance to showcase his talents last season -- his first year in Chicago -- though a toe injury and a concussion resulting from a scary fall limited him to 52 games. The Providence product started 43 games, averaging 13.6 points, 6.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 2.0 steals in that role. Dunn already appears to be a lock as a solid passer and high-level defender, but questions still remain about his shooting ability. He shot only 28.8 percent from deep and 61.0 percent from the line during his rookie year, though managed to get those percentages up to 32.1 and 73.0, respectively. Another year of improvement could mean a breakout year, while a plateau season could begin to raise long-term concerns. Dunn’s Fantasy stock is largely dependent on how one feels about his potential as a shooter, though it’s hard to ignore his significant role within the Bulls’ gameplan, especially in points formats.
Dunn was selected by the Timberwolves with the fifth overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft, but largely struggled during his rookie season and was unable to work his way up the team's point guard depth chart. He ended up averaging just 17.1 minutes per game, which translated to 3.8 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steal. The 23-year-old point guard shot 37.7 percent from the field and a brutal 28.8 percent from the three-point line, giving him plenty of things to work on moving forward. The good news for Dunn is that he's heading into a much more manageable situation in regards to earning playing time. Dunn was traded to the Bulls along with Zach LaVine in exchange for superstar Jimmy Butler in the offseason. With Chicago, Dunn will get as many opportunities as possible to earn a role as the team's starting point guard. He'll have to fend off the likes of Jerian Grant and Cameron Payne, but his status as a recent early-round draft pick and the fact that he was one of the key returns in the Butler trade indicates the Bulls are hoping he's their point guard of the future. While Dunn certainly needs to improve his shot, the added opportunity in Chicago and potential for a starter's workload should give him plenty of chances to put together a career-year in just his second NBA season.
When Minnesota selected Dunn fifth overall in the 2016 NBA Draft, the intimation was that the team would have to move Ricky Rubio to clear the way at point guard. However, the Wolves appear intent on keeping both players for now, despite their overlapping skill sets as strong passers and defenders but relatively weak jump shooters. While Dunn projects as Minnesota’s point guard of the future, he’ll likely open the season as a combo guard coming off the bench behind Rubio and Zach LaVine. The 22-year-old is among the most NBA-ready prospects in the 2016 class and should be set for a significant role from Day 1 -- the question is just how significant it will be. The Timberwolves ranked dead last in made three-pointers last season, so the idea of pairing Dunn and Rubio on the court together doesn’t make much sense. The team isn’t exactly flush with depth at either guard spot, however, so Dunn’s length should allow him to defend up to three positions. The two-time Big East Player of the Year averaged 16.4 points, 6.2 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game as a senior at Providence and could turn into a strong all-category contributor at his peak. Ideally, he’ll improve from the stripe (career 69.3% in college) and beyond the arc (career 35.4%) as his career progresses. From a fantasy perspective, Dunn should be a highly sought-after commodity in dynasty formats, but the presence of Rubio relegates him to later-round status in most single-season leagues. However, if Rubio were to be traded or suffer an injury, Dunn’s value would rise significantly.
