Ulis, during his rookie campaign, arguably had one of the most dramatic pre to post All-Star break role changes of any player last season, jumping from 9.0 minutes to 32.0 minutes per game. That change was largely a function of coach Earl Watson shutting down starting point guard Eric Bledsoe, along with most of the veterans, in mid-March for the remainder of the season. Ulis had a notably heavy workload in April, during the last six games of the season, and responded with impressive play. Over that stretch, he posted 20.7 points, 6.8 assists and 3.8 rebounds across 37.9 minutes per game while shooting 48.5 percent from the field and 37.0 percent from three – making for a great DFS play. That said, he’s still projected to be a legitimate reserve next season behind Bledsoe, limiting his potential Fantasy impact severely. While Ulis has certainly demonstrated his skill as a player, drafting him in most Fantasy formats would be misguided, as he’s unlikely to be Fantasy relevant in year-long formats due to his status as a backup.

  2. Tyler Ulis 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    If Ulis’ slight 5-foot-10, 149-pound frame didn’t deter teams from drafting him, it’s likely that his purported hip issue that several doctors red flagged resulted in the point guard sliding out of the first round in June’s draft. The Suns apparently voiced no such concerns in selecting Ulis with the 34th overall pick, and the team’s decision already seems to have been validated. The former Kentucky standout dazzled during the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 14.5 points, 6.3 assists, 2.8 steals and 2.5 rebounds in six appearances while outplaying Suns first-round picks Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss. Efficiency was an issue for the diminutive point guard, but he looked like a difference maker on the defensive end, where he used his quick hands and foot speed to cause problems for opposing ball handlers. Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight represent the Suns’ top two options at point guard heading into the season, but Ulis may have put himself in the conversation for a low-minute role as a third-string option at the position. He could be one of the rare second-round picks who ends up being contributing player in the rotation as a rookie.
