2018 Fantasy Outlook
After playing just 55 games as a rookie, Siakam saw his role grow in his second season in Toronto. He averaged a career-high 20.7 minutes, while adding 7.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 81 games. He finished with a 50.8 percent clip from the field and while he attempted to extend his range (29 attempts), the experiment didn't exactly go well and he shot just 22.0 percent from three-point land. Still, Siakam provided plenty of energy and has a ton of athleticism, so the Raptors could try and tap into that more during the upcoming season. The third-year big man does appear to have an opportunity for more playing time following the organization's big offseason. DeMar DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl were traded to the Spurs in exchange for superstar Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green. Poeltl's departure, specifically, should afford Siakam more frontcourt minutes considering the Raptors didn't bring any bigs back in the deal. While Siakam will need to continue to develop his shot and become a much more productive three-point shooter, the added workload could boost his numbers elsewhere across the stat sheet and he'll have every chance to take the next step forward in his development. However, his Fantasy expectations shouldn't be too high and he'll still likely be avoidable in all but the deepest of leagues. Read Past Outlooks

April 17, 2019
Siakam totaled 19 points (8-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds and an assist across 37 minutes in the Raptors' win over the Magic on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Siakam was at it once again, proving to be a key piece of the Raptors' starting lineup and posting a double-double in Tuesday's win. He's a strong candidate for Most Improved Player with his breakout regular season, and it seems he's carried that newfound production into the playoffs.

Toronto's Pascal Siakam was arguably the biggest breakout fantasy player this season.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Siakam was drafted out New Mexico State with the 27th pick of the 2017 NBA Draft and saw plenty of opportunities to contribute during his rookie campaign. The 23-year-old end up starting 38 of the 55 games he played in, but struggled mightily to make much of an impact and averaged just 4.2 points and 3.4 rebounds across 15.6 minutes. Due to his struggles, the Raptors ended up scaling down his playing time as the season wore down and after the Raptors added both P.J. Tucker and Serge Ibaka at the trade deadline, Siakam was essentially a non-factor in the team's regular rotation. Other than Tucker, the Raptors have nearly the exact same roster from a season ago, as they re-signed both Kyle Lowry and Ibaka. That means Siakam is going to be stuck in a reserve role yet again, so it's unlikely he'll see improvement on his rookie year numbers unless an injury occurs higher up on the depth chart. Look for Siakam to battle both Lucas Nogueira and Jakob Poeltl for minutes off the bench in the frontcourt.
Siakam, a 6-foot-10 power forward out of New Mexico State, was the Raptors' second first-round selection of the 2016 NBA Draft, settling in as the No. 27 overall selection. Siakam turned in impressive averages of 20.4 points (on 53.6% shooting from the field), 11.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game last season, though as a small-school product, the big man's numbers carry the stigma of mostly coming against low-level competition. His draft stock didn't really begin to take off until he shined during the measurements portion of the NBA Combine. Siakam checked in with a huge 7-foot-3.25 wingspan, and that coupled with the non-stop hustle he displayed in workouts and games would seemingly make him a good candidate to eventually serve as a rotational big man at the next level. While Siakam's physical advantages worked for him against shorter players in college, he could have trouble exerting his will in the NBA, particularly on the offensive end. With Jared Sullinger and Patrick Patterson in the fold to handle the bulk of the minutes at power forward, Siakam won't be asked to see regular time as a rookie. However, since neither of those veterans are under contract beyond 2016-17, Siakam could have a clear path to a rotation spot as soon as next season, but his ceiling is fairly limited as a player more reliant on effort than raw talent.
