2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bacon appeared in just 43 games for Charlotte last season, averaging 17.7 minutes per tilt while he split time with the Hornets' G League affiliate, the Greensboro Swarm. The Florida State product provided excellent shooting in limited action, producing career highs in field goal percentage (47.5) and three-point percentage (43.7). He closed the season on a high note with solid play as a starter over the final 12 games. In those games, he averaged 12.6 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.8 threes on 46.8 percent shooting from the field and 42.9 percent shooting from three. With Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb gone, Bacon could be in line for production and minutes similar to his end-of-season averages, which would make him a fantasy-relevant pickup in 2019-20 in deeper formats. He will compete for playing time with Malik Monk, Terry Rozier, Nicolas Batum and Devonte' Graham, but the rotation on this rebuilding Hornets team does not yet have clarity. Read Past Outlooks

Scores 21 points in Monday's win
FGreensboro Swarm   G League (Hornets)
October 14, 2019
Bacon finished with 21 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five assists, and three rebounds in 27 minutes during Monday's 120-99 win over the Grizzlies.
ANALYSIS
Bacon had almost as many turnovers (four) as dimes. However, he was superb overall, providing efficient scoring while helping relieve Terry Rozier of some of the burden to set others up as a playmaker. Bacon will still have to contend with veteran Nicolas Batum (Achilles), among others, for minutes and touches. Nevertheless, the much younger Bacon seems to be in the process of earning a sizable role heading into the regular season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Bacon is a 6-foot-7, 22-year-old from Florida State who averaged 26.5 points per game with the Greensboro Swarm last season (Hornets G League affiliate). When given the opportunity, Bacon has the ability to score, illustrated with an 18-point outing against the Spurs last season. He also has good court vision and can feed the ball to seemingly anyone at any given time, while showing off a soft touch inside the arc. He'll likely have a bench spot with the Hornets this season considering Bacon did receive 13.5 minutes with the Hornets over 53 games last year, so the team isn't afraid to use him as long as he keeps developing.
The Oak Hill Academy product had quite the career at Florida State, as he averaged 16.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.0 steal in his two collegiate seasons. While he slipped to the second-round, Bacon is an excellent scorer, and he'll work to carve out a minor bench role as a rookie. With Nic Batum, Jeremy Lamb and Malik Monk ahead of him, however, Bacon's rookie season will likely be a developmental year, first and foremost.
