2019 Fantasy Outlook
Isaac improved his per-game averages across every statistical category except steals as a sophomore in 2018-19. Perhaps more importantly, he established himself as a fixture in the starting lineup, showcasing his superb defensive acumen while improving offensively as well through 75 games and 64 starts. Having reportedly gained a whopping 25 pounds of muscle this summer, the young combo forward turns 22 in October and could see a sizable uptick in playing time for the second straight season, as he logged 26.6 minutes per game last year compared to 19.9 per night as a rookie. In order for Isaac to be a consistently positive factor for fantasy purposes, he'll likely need to provide more steady offensive production, which has been the big question mark for him since entering the league, and it reared its ugly head in the playoffs. Regardless, it's clear that the Magic have high hopes for Isaac and view him as a key cog going forward. As a result, those who take the plunge and decide to invest in him on draft day can at least take comfort in the fact that Orlando is very likely to continue allowing Isaac to play through mental mistakes and off nights offensively.

$Signed a two-year, $9.16 million contract with the Magic in July of 2017. Magic exercised $5.81 million team option for 2019-20 in September of 2018. Contract includes team option for 2020-21.
Up to 234 pounds
FOrlando Magic
August 12, 2019
Isaac has worked on developing his body over the summer and currently weighs 234 pounds, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Isaac, who recently spent five days working with Team USA in Nevada, noted that he's gained 25 pounds since the conclusion of the 2018-19 campaign. Despite the added weight, the Florida State product said he felt "the same, if not better" in terms of his quickness and conditioning. Whether he's able to maintain that weight over the course of an 82-game season remains to be seen, but it's nonetheless a positive development for a player who entered the league two years ago with plenty of questions about his thin frame.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
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.
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.
