2018 Fantasy Outlook
Swanigan averaged just seven minutes per contest over the 27 games he played during his rookie season, which unsurprisingly led to minimal production (2.3 points and 2.0 rebounds). The 26th overall pick in 2017 then saw plenty of run in the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 26.3 minutes across seven games and hauling in an impressive 10.7 rebounds per contest. Swanigan should be primed for an uptick opportunity during the upcoming regular season as well, especially if Maurice Harkless spends the majority of his time at small forward. Such a development would likely leave Swanigan as Al-Farouq Aminu’s top backup at the four now that Ed Davis is in Brooklyn, presumably affording him double-digit minutes. Swanigan displayed some solid scoring skills in his college days at Purdue in addition to his strong work on the glass, so he could be sneaky late-ground grab if he shines in training camp and preseason.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Swanigan fell to the Trail Blazers late in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft, eventually being selected with the 26th overall pick after a standout two-year career at Purdue. The 6-foot-9 big man is well-known for his skills as an elite rebounder, but he's also a scorer and can stretch the floor, evidenced by his 44.7 percent clip from beyond the arc during his sophomore season at Purdue. The biggest beef with Swanigan's game is largely his lack of athleticism and speed, which could present a problem when trying to matchup with some of the quicker big men in the league. However, his impressive performance during the Las Vegas Summer League, which earned him First-Team All Summer League honors, provides some optimism for his transition. In eight games, Swanigan averaged 16.1 points, 10.6 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.4 steals across 30.8 minutes. Swaningan's role for the upcoming season has plenty of question marks though. The Trail Blazers have a slew of bodies at power forward, including Maurice Harkless, Al-Farouq Aminu, Ed Davis and Noah Vonleh. That complicates Swanigan's path to early playing time and could mean a relatively small role once the season opens. That will sort itself out during training camp, but it's safe to assume Swanigan won't be forced into a significant role right away.
