2019 Fantasy Outlook
Simons' rookie season in 2018-19 season was pretty uneventful, as he was buried on the bench behind star guards Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum in addition to Evan Turner, who commonly operated as the team's backup point guard. He did, however, get extended minutes in the final game of the regular season when Portland rested most of its key players and gave Simons a starting nod. In that game, Simons put on an incredible performance, recording 37 points, six rebounds and nine assists in 48 minutes. He shot 7-of-11 from behind the arc and 13-of-21 from the field overall in that time. Now, with Turner being dealt to Atlanta this offseason and Simons having a year of NBA experience under his belt, the Trail Blazers appear to believe Simons is ready for a consistent role in the team's rotation. That role will likely still be fairly limited, as star point guard Damian Lillard rarely misses games and has consistently played over 35 minutes per game over the course of his career. But with Portland seemingly all-in on Simons as their primary backup to Lillard, the second-year player could carry some value in deeper leagues. Read Past Outlooks

November 21, 2019
Simons (ankle) went through morning shootaround ahead of Thursday's game against the Bucks, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
With Damian Lillard (back) out, Portland needs all the backcourt help they can get. In Simons' first start of the season Tuesday, he posted 13 points on 13 shots, four assists and three rebounds in 36 minutes.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Simons was nabbed by the Trail Blazers with the 24th overall pick this past June, with the 19-year-old making the leap directly from Florida’s IMG Academy to the pro game. Simons looked impressive in Las Vegas Summer League play, averaging 11.0 points (on 43.0 percent shooting), 3.2 rebounds and 1.0 steal across 20.0 minutes over six games. Simons projects as capable of playing both guard spots at the NBA level and boasts a 6-foot-9 wingspan, but there doesn't appear to be much opportunity for him in the Trail Blazers’ backcourt this coming season. Consequently, a year of seasoning at the G-League level likely awaits, although a combination of accelerated development and injuries at the NBA level could potentially see him make his NBA regular-season debut at some point in the coming season.
