2018 Fantasy Outlook
When Ojeleye was drafted in the second round last June, he had G League written all over him. But then two important things happened. First, Gordon Hayward was lost to a season-ending injury. Then, Ojeleye quickly developed into a reliable three-and-D reserve, with an emphasis on the latter. It seemed like an odd transformation for the burly rookie, who averaged 19 points per game in his last season at SMU. But it led to Ojeleye averaging 16 minutes per game over 73 appearances as a rookie. If Ojeleye can improve upon his 32 percent shooting from behind the arc, he'll be an ideal reserve, though Hayward's return and a lack of attrition elsewhere on the roster could mean he'll struggle to match last season's workload on many nights.

Ojeleye finished with 17 points (7-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists and a steal over 38 minutes Tuesday against the Wizards.
Ojeleye picked up the start at forward with the Celtics resting their key rotation guys for the season finale. He finishes the regular season averaging 3.1 points and 1.5 rebounds over 55 contests and figures to be buried on the bench throughout the playoffs, barring a slew of injuries.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Selected 37th overall in the 2017 Draft, Ojeleye is staring up from the bottom of the Celtic depth chart, facing a long list of veterans. With wings Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward and fellow rookie Jason Tatum well ahead of Ojeleye, you can expect the 22-year old rookie to spend a lot of time shuttling back and forth between Boston and the team’s G-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws. But Boston’s three-for-one deal to bring in Kyrie Irving does free up some possible minutes for Ojeleye. The undersized yet severely muscular 6’6” rookie will see more time at small forward than shooting guard. His ability to create his own shot must intrigue Celtic management. The SMU product will need another quantity-for-quality Boston deal for any hope of seeing meaningful minutes, and even if that should occur, it’s doubtful the team would risk a possible Finals appearance by giving too many minutes to Ojeleye. Keep expectations low.
