2018 Fantasy Outlook
Young burst onto the college basketball scene as a freshman at Oklahoma, with his electric scoring ability and three-point range instantly drawing comparisons to NBA champion Steph Curry. Young would ultimately finish the season as Division 1's leading scorer (27.4 points per game) and assist man (8.7 per game), while hitting 118 three-pointers. He chipped in with 3.9 rebounds and 1.7 steals as well, while knocking down 36 percent of his deep balls. There are a few concerns with Young's transition to the NBA. He's only 6-foot-2 and doesn't have much length, so he could struggle to gain separation offensively, as well as keep some of the league's taller guards in check on the defensive side of the ball. There were also times when he disappeared against some of the better teams in the NCAA and his specific skill-set as a deep-ball threat poses potential issues with his efficiency. That said, Young is heading into an extremely advantageous situation after being drafted by the Hawks with the fifth overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. Atlanta traded last year's starting point guard, Dennis Schroder, to the Thunder this offseason, which should give Young an opportunity to jump into the starting unit right away. Jeremy Lin was added to the roster and could start if Young struggles during training camp or the preseason, but it's still Young's job to lose. As a result, the 19-year-old is slated for big minutes from the get go and is easily one of the more intriguing rookies from this year's class when looking at Fantasy potential. Lin should help take the pressure off Young at times and fellow youngsters Taurean Prince and John Collins are also on the rise, so the first-round pick should have some solid pieces alongside him to boost his assist numbers. Expectations will be high going into the season, though as mentioned previously, Fantasy owners will have to keep in mind his status as a rookie, as well as the potential for inefficiency issues going up against NBA talent.

ANALYSIS
The rookie's offense is starting to come a little more easily. Young's scored 20-plus in three of his last four games while averaging 20.0 points, 5.8 assists, 4.1 boards, 2.0 three-pointers and 1.0 steals over his last eight as the Oklahoma star grows more confident in his skills at the NBA level.
