2019 Fantasy Outlook
After an underwhelming first season where he failed to make an All-Rookie team, Fox stepped up as a sophomore in 2018-19. He ranked fourth in total assists (590) and sixth in steals (133) while also averaging 17.3 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. The former fifth overall pick improved his efficiency as well, raising his true shooting percentage from 47.7% to 54.4%. Fox's development helped contribute to a 39-win season for Sacramento, and it was the first time the Kings have reached that many victories since 2005-06. He'll look to continue building on his second season, where he managed to accumulate three 30-point games, 17 games with at least 10 assists, and 19 performances with at least three steals. Already a top contributor in the assists and steals categories, Fox's room to grow is in his scoring. Primarily, increasing his free-throw percentage (72.7%) and finding a way to shoot more threes (1.1 makes per game at 37.1%). Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
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.
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.
