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
$Signed a two-year, $10.08 million contract with the Kings in July of 2017. Kings exercised $6.39 million team option for 2019-20 in October of 2018. Contract includes team option for 2020-21.

Fox finished with 17 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt), nine assists and one rebound across 17 minutes in the Kings' 136-131 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Fox was extremely efficient with his limited playing time, and he closed out an outstanding sophomore campaign by shooting 18-for-28 over his last two games. The 2017 fifth overall pick averaged 17.3 points (on 45.8 percent shooting, including 37.1 percent from three-point range), 7.3 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals across 31.4 minutes across 81 games this season. Looking ahead to the 2019-20 campaign, another leap forward could certainly be in the cards for Fox, who should see his scoring bump up another notch with at least a slight improvement in shooting.

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.
