2020 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

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).

College/International Summary

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.

Ice cold in Monday's win
FMemphis Grizzlies
January 19, 2021
Brooks registered three points (1-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and three assists across 22 minutes during Monday's 108-104 win over the Suns.
ANALYSIS
Shooting woes for Brooks hit a new low point as he went for a season low of three points while the team was still able to sneak out its fifth win in a row. The 24-year-old forward has never been a particularly dead-eyed shooter, but things have taken a turn for the worse so far this season as he's at 36.9 percent from the floor at 30.5 percent from downtown through 13 games. The 22 minutes for Brooks also marked a season low and that trend could continue if the shooting doesn't improve.

Past Season Summaries
2019

Brooks took on his biggest role to date during the 2019-20 season, setting career highs nearly across the board with the Grizzlies. He appeared (and started) in all 73 games during the shortened campaign, averaging 16.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 28.9 minutes. The 24-year-old ranked second on the team in points (1,181), second in steals (63), second in made free-throws (164) and first in made threes (147). On Nov. 6, Brooks posted his first of four 30-point outings. That contest, a 16-point win over Minnesota, the third-year wing totaled 31 points (9-16 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 8-8 FT), four rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes. Later, on Feb. 28, Brooks set a season high with 32 points (12-22 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT) against the Kings. The 6-foot-7 Oregon product set a season-high nine rebounds on two occasions -- the first being Nov. 4 against Houston and the second being Jan. 20 against New Orleans. The game against the Pelicans may have been his best overall performance of the campaign. In addition to his nine boards, Brooks contributed 31 points (12-25 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four assists and two steals with only one turnover in 35 minutes. During a 13-point win over the Spurs, Brooks set a season-high six assists. On defense, Brooks' season highs stood at three steals (twice) and two blocks (five times). Arguably his best overall performance of the campaign was Jan. 20 against the Pelicans. During the restart of the NBA season in the Orlando bubble, Brooks averaged 20.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists across eight seeding games. He finished the campaign with 16 straight double-digit scoring efforts.

2018

Brooks appeared in 18 games for the Memphis Grizzlies during his sophomore campaign. He played a reserve role, averaging 18.3 minutes per game off the bench. Brooks contributed 7.5 points per contest, hitting over 40 percent of his shots from the field. He displayed his long-range skills by shooting 37.5 percent from three-point range. The small forward also hit over 73 percent of his shots from the foul line. Brooks scored in double figures on five occasions. He posted a season-high 19 points against Boston on Dec. 29. Brooks also chipped in 1.7 rebounds per game during his time on the floor. He grabbed a season-best six boards against Phoenix on Oct. 27. That may have been his best all-around game of the season, as Brooks also added two assists and two steals in a 117-96 win over the Phoenix Suns.

2017

Following three seasons at Oregon, Brooks was selected with the 45th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. He proceeded to play in all 82 games for the Grizzlies, including 74 starts. Across 28.7 minutes per game, he averaged 11.0 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists. He also shot 44.0 percent from the field, made 1.1 threes per game at 35.6 percent and made 1.5 free throws per game at 74.7 percent. Arguably, Brooks' best performance of the season occurred during a 137-123 loss to the Thunder. He started, played 33 minutes and posted a career-high 36 points, seven rebounds, two steals and an assist. His other career highs stood at eight rebounds, eight assists, five threes, four steals and two blocks. Brooks racked up seven performances with at least 20 points, 23 with at least five rebounds, two with at least five assists, five with at least three steals and 13 with at least one block. Brooks also made at least three three-pointers on 13 occasions.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
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.
