2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 2017 second-round pick out of Oregon began his rookie season well out of the rotation, seeing the floor in just 11 of the first 37 games of the year. However, the Hawks eventually opted to get their youngster some run later in the season, which allowed Dorsey to become a regular member of the rotation over the final 45 contests. During that stretch, Dorsey averaged 8.5 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists across 20.2 minutes. He also knocked down 1.5 three-pointers at a 36.4 percent clip, showing off his range and ability to stretch the floor. Even more notable was Dorsey's final 10-game stretch where he averaged 14.4 points and 2.3 three-pointers with a 42.9 percent clip from three-point land across 26.4 minutes. Clearly Dorsey showed off some upside as a rookie, which would typically mean an uptick in his workload going into his second season. The Hawks shipped starting point guard, Dennis Schroder, to the Thunder, though then added Jeremy Lin in an offseason trade. In addition to Lin, Atlanta also drafted collegiate star Trae Young with the fifth overall pick, so he's expected to get big minutes right away at Dorsey's position. That designates Dorsey as the third point guard on the roster and makes it unlikely he sees much more court time than last year. Lin is a candidate to be dealt at the trade deadline and it wouldn't be surprising if Dorsey saw his role grow in the second half of the season once again. However, with so many bodies already expected to command significant minutes for much of the year, Dorsey isn't looking like an overly intriguing Fantasy contributor. Read Past Outlooks

Records team-high 18 points in preseason loss

Dorsey finished with 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 29 minutes during Friday's 120-110 preseason loss to Memphis.
ANALYSIS
Dorsey was given the opportunity to start with Taurean Prince (illness) on the sidelines. He made the most of his chance, leading the team with 18 points including four triples. As with many of the Hawks roster, his exact role remains unclear. Despite this performance, Dorsey is still a long way from having standard league relevance and warrants only deeper league attention.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The 41st overall pick in the 2017 draft, Dorsey signed a guaranteed deal with Atlanta in July. Even with a depleted roster, however, Dorsey will have to fight for minutes at the NBA level and could ultimately end up spending a decent amount of time in the D-League. The Oregon product scored in double-figures in both of his collegiate seasons, and he posted averages of 14.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game as a sophomore in 2016-17. While he's a bit undersized to play two-guard in the NBA, Dorsey is an excellent three-point shooter -- 42.3% 3PT on 5.3 3PA/game last season -- and that skill could become his calling card.
