2018 Fantasy Outlook
The sixth overall pick in the 2017 Draft out of Florida State, where he made the ACC All-Freshman Team, Isaac had his rookie campaign dampened by a lingering ankle injury. He struggled offensively during his 27 appearances, averaging just 5.4 points across 19.9 minutes while shooting 37.9 percent from the field. However, Isaac shot an encouraging 76.0 percent from the free throw line and was able to show off his defensive potential by averaging a combined 4.2 steals/blocks per 36 minutes. Heading into 2018-19, Isaac should see his role increase, likely starting alongside Aaron Gordon at forward. At the very least, Isaac is probably worth a late-round flier in Fantasy simply due to his upside as a defender and solid rebounding. How early he gets drafted is heavily dependent on Fantasy owners’ optimism about his scoring ability, both in volume and percentage, and overall workload. Read Past Outlooks

Plays 27 minutes Saturday
FOrlando Magic
October 21, 2018
Isaac tallied eight points (3-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, two steals, and one block in 27 minutes during Saturday's 116-115 loss to Philadelphia.
ANALYSIS
Isaac's statistical production continues to struggle as he delivered just eight points in Saturday's loss. The biggest takeaway from this outing was that he saw 27 minutes of playing time. This was likely due in part to the face that Jonathon Simmons (personal) was missing but nonetheless is a positive. Isaac was able to add a combined three defensive stats and this is where the bulk of his fantasy value lies. Owners who drafted him will need to be patient with the lanky sophomore and hopefully, could be rewarded sooner rather than later.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Isaac, at 6-foot-11, has impressive physical tools for a player capable of occupying both forward slots – a great asset to have next to Aaron Gordon, who’s a bit of a tweener himself. Isaac’s length and motor project to make him an impact defender at the NBA level, capable of succeeding in a switch-heavy defensive scheme. Last season, at Florida State, he posted 12.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 1.2 steals across 26.2 minutes per game while shooting 50.8 percent from the field and 34.8 percent from three on 89 attempts. Questions do remain about what kind of offensive impact he’ll make, however. Scouts noted that while he has the tools to be a great talent on that side of the ball, he lacks aggression and confidence. He has plenty of upside, but the concerns about his offensive game seemingly make it unlikely he’ll post eye-popping box scores. That said, his defensive potential and overall versatility should keep him on the floor for solid stretches of games, possibly garnering sixth-man type minutes at both forward spots.
