2018 Fantasy Outlook
In his lone season at Arizona, Ayton was clearly one of the most dominant big men in the country, averaging a double-double of 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds. The 7-foot-1, 250-pounder added 1.9 blocks, consistently scaring off opposing players from attempting to get to the rim when he was in the game. Despite his size, Ayton has the athleticism and ability to run the floor in transition successfully, which should translate over well to a Suns team that played at the third-quickest pace in the NBA last season. He also has a solid jumper and showed he can knock down a three-pointer when necessary after posting a 34.3 percent clip from deep. All of those skills earned Ayton the No. 1 overall selection in the 2018 NBA Draft and he joins a Suns team that should give him every opportunity to excel right away. Concerns about his effort and motor do exist, but if Ayton does end up getting featured alongside superstar Devin Booker offensively, there's a chance he becomes a legitimate option for Fantasy owners to select in the middle rounds of most drafts. Ayton does occasionally rely on having strong facilitators that can set him up, so guys like Booker and potentially Brandon Knight could have a key part in making sure Ayton hits his upside, especially in pick-and-roll situations. While Ayton could struggle early on as a rookie transitioning to the NBA, he does have 20/10 potential on any given night if the Suns do feature him as expected. It's worth it to note that Ayton dominated summer league, averaging 14.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block. Read Past Outlooks

Magnificent in losing effort Monday
CPhoenix Suns
March 18, 2019
Ayton amassed 25 points (12-17 FG, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, three steals, and three blocks in 35 minutes during Monday's 116-101 loss to Chicago.
ANALYSIS
Ayton assumed the role of defensive stopper Monday, compiling a career-best six combined steals and blocks. He added another double-double and continues to put together quite a rookie resume. Ayton saw a slight increase in playing time with Richaun Holmes (quad) missing a second straight game. There has been no indication the Suns will shut any player down over the closing weeks and Ayton should continue to flirt with top-30 value moving forward.
