2018 Fantasy Outlook
After being selected to the First Team All-SEC during his freshman year at Kentucky, Fox was selected by the Kings with the fifth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. He proceeded to start 60 of his 73 appearances for the team, but failed to crack 30 minutes per night. The rookie struggled scoring the ball, averaging 11.6 points while shooting 41.2 percent from the field, 30.7 percent from deep and 72.3 percent from the line. Fox was also a subpar distributor and defender, posting 4.4 assists compared with 2.4 turnovers, and swiping only 1.0 steal per contest. It wasn't all underwhelming, however, as he still managed to flash the upside the Kings were hoping for. Fox posted five games with at least 20 points, four games with double-digit assists, and seven games with three-plus steals. Entering his age 21 season, Fox will likely be handed a similar, if not expanded, role. Read Past Outlooks

Achilles
July 5, 2018
Fox (Achilles) will not participate in Las Vegas Summer League, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
ANALYSIS
According to Cunningham, Fox would not participate even if healthy -- news that doesn't come as much of a surprise considering he started 60 of his 73 appearances as a rookie and is a key piece in the Kings' rebuild. Aside from summer league, more information on Fox's Achilles injury may emerge in the upcoming days, though there's been nothing to suggest it's serious. All signs are pointing to him being ready for training camp.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Fox, a 6-foot-3 point guard out of Kentucky, was drafted fifth overall by the Kings in the 2017 NBA Draft. Last season, in college, Fox posted 16.7 points and 4.6 assists per game – the latter of which led the SEC. Though he showed to be an inconsistent shooter, Fox’s upside as an explosive ball-handler and defender seemingly intrigued the Kings enough to warrant a selection. When Sacramento made the pick, it was assumed Fox would be immediately thrown into the fire as starting point guard for the rebuilding franchise. However, the Kings signed veteran point guard George Hill during free agency, who garnered a 30-plus minute workload last season. It’s unclear at the moment if coach Dave Joerger intends to play Hill at the shooting guard at times to free up Fox at the point, though that seems like legitimate scenario. As a result, Fox’s Fantasy value is a somewhat unclear heading into his rookie season, making him a risky pick due to not only his questionable workload, but also his undetermined adjustment to NBA basketball. He might be worth avoiding in many formats until coach Joerger shows his hand.
