Caris LeVert
24-Year-Old GuardG
2018 Fantasy Outlook
After missing a chunk of his rookie season recovering from injury, the 2017-18 campaign marked LeVert's first year of playing a full schedule. While he missed a handful of contests here and there, LeVert still played in 71 games and became a prominent member of the regular rotation. The Nets brought in Allen Crabbe and DeMarre Carroll in trades prior to the season and despite the fact that those two ultimately held down the two starting spots on the wing ahead of LeVert, the second-year guard was still able to log 26.3 minutes per game after finishing with just 21.7 as a rookie. LeVert posted career highs across the board of 12.1 points, 4.2 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.2 steals. He still struggled a bit with his shot, however, and finished just 43.5 percent from the field and 34.7 percent from deep. He'll likely continue to work on honing in his shooting stroke, which could help improve his 1.2 three-pointers per contest. Looking ahead to the upcoming season, the Nets bring back a similar cast of players on the wing. Crabbe, Carroll and Joe Harris all return, though the Nets did part ways with Jeremy Lin. Considering LeVert's ability to play point guard, shooting guard and small forward, the plethora of bodies shouldn't impact his ability to see significant minutes once again and the Nets seem likely to focus on his development as one of the foundation pieces of the future. If LeVert stays healthy, he should be able to take yet another step forward in his development. However, with so many mouths to feed, he may struggle to make more than minor gains across the stat sheet, so Fantasy owners shouldn't expect a huge jump in production going into his third year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Drafted with the 20th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, LeVert ended up missing the first 20 games of the season while working his way back from a fractured foot that he suffered in college at Michigan. Once cleared in December, LeVert slowly earned more and more playing time and eventually took over as a starter, spending 26 of the 57 games he played in with the top unit. After playing roughly 25 minutes a night over the final month and half of the season, LeVert finished with a season average of 8.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists across 21.7 minutes. His three-point production improved as the year went on, but he only shot 32.1 percent from deep for the entire campaign, so that certainly needs some work in order to draw defenses out to the perimeter. He also shot just 72 percent from the free-throw line, which hurts his value in rotisserie leagues. Looking ahead to the upcoming season, the Nets brought in both Allen Crabbe and DeMarre Carroll in trades this offseason. That complicates LeVert's path to playing time and could knock him back into a reserve role. The upside on LeVert remains high and the Nets will likely try and get him as much playing time as possible to aid in that development, but the additions of Crabbe and Carroll, as well as D'Angelo Russell, will likely limit LeVert's ability to make a tangible leap as a sophomore.
The Nets made LeVert the No. 20 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, using the pick acquired from Indiana in the Thaddeus Young trade. While LeVert's talent is undeniable, he comes with significant health concerns after missing 35 games over the last two years due to recurring left foot injuries. That were enough to scare some teams away, but the Nets are reportedly confident that LeVert's foot issues are in the past, and he seems to be progressing toward availability for the start of the season. At 6-foot-7 with above-average athleticism and ball-handling ability, LeVert could play up to three positions next season, but shooting guard is probably his most natural fit. Brooklyn isn't exactly loaded at any backcourt position, though LeVert will have plenty of competition for minutes off the bench in the form of Sean Kilpatrick, veteran Randy Foye and fellow rookie Isaiah Whitehead. LeVert's versatility, as well as the Nets' first-round investment in him, could ultimately provide an advantage, but 2016-17 is likely to be more of a developmental year than anything else.
