2021 Fantasy Outlook
Brooks is coming off his best season as a pro, highlighted by an impressive playoff run. During the regular season, he ranked 126th in fantasy on a per-game basis through averages of 17.2 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.2 steals. During the Grizzlies' postseason run -- for this exercise, including the final regular-season game against the Warriors and the two subsequent play-in games -- Brooks took on the toughest backcourt assignments while averaging 23.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.4 steals. While he shot poorly from three (29.0 percent), he doubled his free-throw rate and shot 47.4 percent from the field. Brooks' role should remain similar in 2021-22. He'll start at shooting guard and seeing roughly 30 minutes per game. Fantasy managers have reason to be optimistic about his development following the Grizzlies' playoff run, so drafting him inside the top 100 is defensible. Memphis isn't an especially potent offensive team, so they'll continue to look to Brooks to score 15-25 points regularly. The main steps for him moving forward are being a more consistent three-point shooter and drawing more fouls, as he did in the playoffs. His secondary playmaking has also improved, but the Grizzlies don't need that from him with Ja Morant, Eric Bledsoe and Kyle Anderson around. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Brooks was born Jan. 22, 1996 in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. He grew up in Canada but played a portion of his high school ball in Henderson, Nevada at Findlay Prep. Other Canadians, including Tristan Thompson, Cory Joseph and Anthony Bennett also played there. Coming out of high school, he was a four-star, top-80 recruit according to ESPN. Brooks majored in general social science in college at Oregon. Follow him on Twitter (@dillonbrooks24). Brooks was named 2016-17 Pac-12 Player of the Year. He also was named to the All-Pac-12 first team in back-to-back seasons, (2015-16 and 2016-17). He led Oregon to the 2017 NCAA Tournament Final Four before falling to North Carolina. The Canadian collected 2017 All-Pac-12 Tournament first team and 2017 NCAA Tournament All-Region team honors, as well. The forward led the Ducks in scoring, points per game (16.1) and field goals (5.9) per game in 2016-17. As a sophomore, Brooks led the Pac-12 in total field goals with 231 in the 2015-16 season. Brooks announced that he would enter the 2017 NBA Draft after his junior year and was selected 45th overall by the Rockets.

Returns in stride
FMemphis Grizzlies
November 25, 2021
Brooks finished with 20 points (6-16 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 6-8 FT), three assists, two rebounds and a block over 26 minutes during Wednesday's 126-113 loss to the Raptors.
ANALYSIS
To step back into the lineup for just the fifth time this season amid various injuries and fire 16 shots bodes well for Brooks' rest-of-season outlook. Granted, an uptick in efficiency will be needed to retain such usage, but the 25-year-old Oregon product averaged 20.7 points and 3.5 rebounds per 36 minutes last season. Brooks is worth monitoring in standard leagues.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Brooks continued his development in 2019-20 -- his third year in the league. He set career highs essentially across the board, averaging 16.2 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.0 threes in 28.9 minutes and appearing in every contest. As the Grizzlies continue the quick rebuild, Brooks should remain a key piece of the team, playing significant minutes on the wing. The most obvious next step in Brooks' development is scoring more efficiently from inside the arc. He shot just 43.8 percent on two-pointers last season, dragging his field-goal percentage down to 40.7 -- a weak mark for someone taking 14.6 shots per game. As it stands, Brooks will likely be a late-round flier selection in most fantasy leagues considering he ranked 165th last season in per-game, eight-category leagues.
After a promising rookie campaign, Brooks was hit hard by the injury bug this past season. He appeared in the first 11 contests of 2018-19 before suffering a sprained knee that kept him sidelined for over a month, and it took him only seven more games to sustain a season-ending toe injury. Moreover, Brooks earned just 18.3 minutes per matchup through those 18 appearances compared to 28.7 per tilt across 82 games in 2017-18. It remains to be seen if Brooks will win back a spot in the starting five, as he went from starting on an almost full-time basis, with 74 starts as a rookie, to coming off the bench in every bout as a sophomore. Whether or not Andre Iguodala is still on the roster by the time opening night rolls around or not, Kyle Anderson is fairly likely to hold onto his starting gig while Bruno Caboclo and newcomers Jae Crowder, Josh Jackson, De'Anthony Melton and Grayson Allen are also likely to compete with Brooks for minutes along the wing.
Brooks proved to be one of the most valuable second-round picks of the 2017 draft, appearing in all 82 games and averaging a solid 11.0 points on 44.0 percent shooting. The Oregon product also hauled in 3.1 rebounds and dished out 1.6 assists per contest, and he put a fitting cap on his rookie campaign with a 36-point outburst versus the Thunder in the season finale. Brooks also had 22- and 28-point tallies within his last six contests, providing a glimpse at his scoring upside. The offseason acquisition of Kyle Anderson as a restricted free agent from the Spurs presumably slides him into the starting small forward role that Brooks often occupied last season, but the latter now profiles as the Grizzlies’ top shooting guard. Brooks’ offensive proficiency should serve him particularly well at the two-guard spot alongside a presumably healthy Mike Conley, who should draw his fair share of defensive attention. Brooks therefore profiles as a potential valuable source of scoring across all formats, although his production across other categories could stand to see a boost.
