2021 Fantasy Outlook
Last year, Brogdon bounced back from a relatively lackluster debut season with the Pacers to average a career-high 21.2 points and 5.3 rebounds across 34.5 minutes per game -- all career highs. The 28-year-old shot 45.4 percent from the field, 38.8 percent from three and 86.4 percent from the free-throw line as he regained his shooting consistency after shooting just 32.6 percent from downtown a year prior. The Virginia product had his best overall season from a fantasy perspective, finishing 56th overall and 52nd on a per-game basis. The only regression that he experienced was in his assists numbers, which fell from a career-high 7.1 per game in 2019-20 to just 5.9 last season -- which was still higher than any of his years with Milwaukee. Indiana drafted Chris Duarte with the No. 13 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, but neither he, nor TJ McConnell, should hinder Brogdon's playing time. With a healthy Caris LeVert, Brogdon may relinquish some of the scoring burden, but he should still be an efficient scorer, as has been the case throughout his career. The pick-and-roll combo of Brogdon with Domantas Sabonis or Myles Turner is lethal on paper and should propel Brogdon to another top-60 fantasy finish. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Malcolm Moses Adams Brogdon was born in 1992 in Atlanta. He is the son of Dr. Jann Adams and Mitchell Brogdon. His mother is an associate dean at Morehouse College, and his father is a lawyer, mediator and TV show host. Brogdon has a Master's degree from the University of Virginia in public policy and an undergraduate degree in history. In 2016, Brogdon was awarded the 2016 Ernest H. Ern Distinguished Student Award by the Virginia Alumni Association. The award is given annually to a UVA student that demonstrates outstanding academic and leadership performance while preserving the tradition of the school. In 2018, Brogdon founded Hoops2O, a nonprofit that recruits players from across the NBA to raise funds and raise awareness for clean water initiatives in Africa. Fans can check out Brogdon on Instagram (@malcolmbrogdon). Malcolm Brogdon spent five years (2011-16) at the University of Virginia, playing in a combined total of 136 games for the Cavaliers. As a freshman, Brogdon got the opportunity to play meaningful minutes for a UVA team that boasted lots of depth. He played in 28 games, started once, and averaged 6.7 points and almost 3 rebounds per contest with the Hoos. After missing the 2012-13 season while recovering from surgery to repair a broken foot, Brogdon returned with a vengeance in 2013-14 and averaged 12.7 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, nearly doubling his averages from his previous season. Brogdon, who finished the season as the only ACC player to score in double figures in every league game, was named to the All-ACC First Team by the ACC Coaches and the All-ACC Second Team by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. In 2014-15, he averaged a career-high 14 points per game and started all 34 contests he played in, finding himself named to the 2014-15 All-American Second Team in by the Associated Press (AP), the U.S. Basketball Writers Association, the National Basketball Coaches Association and the USA Today All-American Second Team. As a senior, Brogdon became a superstar. He averaged a new career high 18.4 points and 4.1 rebounds per game for the Cavaliers -- and became the first Wahoo since Ralph Sampson to be named the ACC Player of the Year. That season, Brogdon was named to the All-American First Team by a number of news outlets, including the Associated Press, the National Association of Basketball Coaches, and the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.

Hamstring
October 27, 2021
Brogdon has been ruled out for the remainder of Wednesday's game against the Raptors due to a sore left hamstring.
ANALYSIS
Brogdon picked up the injury during the third quarter of Wednesday's game and is officially done for the night. Depending on the extent of the injury, T.J. McConnell and Brad Wanamaker could see increased run at point guard for the Pacers if Brogdon is forced to miss time moving forward.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
2017
After three successful seasons with Milwaukee, Brogdon joined Indiana and immediately took on a more voluminous role. In his first season with the team, he averaged 16.5 points, 7.1 assists and 4.9 boards -- all career highs. Playing a career-high 30.9 minutes per night, Brogdon's increased usage led to declines in his pristine shooting, as the former 50/40/90 wing finished the year with 43.8 shooting from the field and 32.6 percent from three. Victor Oladipo was out for most of the season, and the team dealt with injuries throughout the lineup, leading to Brogdon's increased usage as both a scoring option and a facilitator. Oladipo is likely to be back in the lineup when the new season tips off, Domantis Sabonis emerged as a legitimate All-Star and T.J. Warren cooked on offense to end the season. As a result, Brogdon could take a step back in the usage department, though a return to past shooting numbers could make up for that role decline with an increase in efficiency.
Brogdon is coming off an impressive third season, where he joined the elite 50/40/90 club. He posted career highs in points (15.6), rebounds (4.5), threes (1.6) and, unsurprisingly, true shooting percentage (61.4). While Brogdon is a relatively low-usage player, he's shown potential as top offensive option. In 64 appearances last season, he posted 12 games with at least 20 points and 13 games with more than four dimes. In joining the Pacers, Brogdon will need to showcase that ability more often, as Indiana will be without Victor Oladipo (knee) until around December. Whether Brogdon can transition into a bigger role is one question, but whether he can stay healthy is another. Through his first three seasons, Brogdon is averaging just 62.3 games played. We know that he'll be able to provide value as an efficient all-around shooter, but can he take on a bigger role and stay on the court?
Due to a partially torn left quadriceps tendon, Brogdon was limited to 48 games last season. Prior to the injury, which occured Feb. 1, he averaged 13.5 points (48.6 percent), 3.4 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.3 threes and nearly a steal across 31.0 minutes. It’s unclear if he'll start at shooting guard in 2018-19, but Brogdon’s ability to function as a combo guard -- and even a small forward in small-ball lineups -- should enable him to garner over 25 minutes per game for a third consecutive season. If he averages closer to 30 minutes, he has top-100 upside, and that’s without factoring in natural progression. Brogdon's average athleticism limits him, somewhat, as a point guard, but he's already a top-shelf three-point shooter (39.5% career) and is both a good decision-maker (1.5 TPG career) and defender, though it doesn't always translate into elite steals numbers.
Brogdon – winner of the 2016-17 Rookie of the Year award – played a crucial role in the Bucks’ success last season. A 6-foot-5 combo guard out of Virginia, Brogdon flashed potential as a three-and-D threat with good court vision, posting 10.2 points, 4.2 assists, 2.8 boards and 1.1 steals across 26.4 minutes per game while drilling 40.4 percent of his looks from beyond the arc. While it was assumed Brogdon would likely play a non-Fantasy-relevant reserve role behind Matthew Dellavedova and Khris Middleton, he ended up usurping Dellavedova’s role as the starter for a solid chunk of the year, drawing 28 starts. Even when he wasn’t a starter, Brogdon’s ability to handle both guard slots resulted in him seeing at least 30 minutes a game on more than a few occasions – 21 to be exact (of which he started only 13). Heading into the 2017-18 season, Brogdon should see many of the same opportunities he saw last year considering the Bucks haven’t made any significant changes to their backcourt. Plus, with Jabari Parker out until at least February 2018, coach Jason Kidd may opt to slide Khris Middleton and Tony Snell up to small forward on numerous occasions, opening up the shooting guard slot for Brogdon to fill in. That, combined with assumed offseason development, makes Brogdon an intriguing mid-to-late round option in many Fantasy formats, as well as a constant DFS threat.
