2018 Fantasy Outlook
After barely playing as an undrafted rookie out of Wichita State in 2016-17, VanVleet became a significant contributor for the Raptors in his second year, helping lead one of the better benches in the entire NBA. Operating as Kyle Lowry's backup at point guard, VanVleet posted averages of 8.6 points, 3.2 assists and 2.4 rebounds across 20.0 minutes. He also upped his efficiency as a shooter and finished 42.6 percent from the field, 41.4 percent from the three-point line and 83.2 percent from the charity stripe. Whenever Lowry or DeMar DeRozan were off the floor, VanVleet provided a reliable option as both a facilitator and a scorer, which landed him in the discussion for the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award. VanVleet wound up placing third behind Lou Williams and Eric Gordon, but it was a still a testament to how valuable he was to a team that finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference. After earning a two-year, $18.1 million extension this offseason, VanVleet returns in what should be a similar role in the backcourt. The Raptors traded away DeRozan and brought in the likes of Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green, but it shouldn't impact VanVleet's role much. Look for him to operate as the No. 2 option at point guard behind Lowry, as well as the first guy off the bench most nights. That should limit his utility to a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Scores 14 off bench in win over Cavs
GToronto Raptors
October 18, 2018
VanVleet scored 14 points (6-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding five assists and two rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's win over the Cavaliers.
ANALYSIS
With Delon Wright (thigh) sidelined, VanVleet has backup point guard duties to himself and responded with solid numbers in the Raptors' Opening Night win. Wright remains questionable heading into Friday's tilt against the Celtics, and as long as he's in street clothes, VanVleet should benefit.
