Indiana Pacers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 23rd overall pick in 2018, Holiday served as the third point guard on Indiana's depth chart. Apart from his field-goal percentage, Holiday was solid overall, posting averages of 5.9 points (40.1 FG%, 33.9 3P%, 82.0 FT%), 1.7 assists, 1.3 rebounds, 0.9 threes, 0.4 steals and 0.3 blocks in 12.9 minutes across 50 appearances. With the Pacers essentially swapping out Darren Collison and Cory Joseph for Malcolm Brogdon and T.J. McConnell this summer, there's a chance Holiday begins 2019-20 as Brogdon's primary backup at point guard, though he'll have to beat McConnell out for the job. If that happens, an uptick in minutes combined with Holiday's aggressiveness offensively could mean a small breakout is on the horizon, especially with Victor Oladipo (knee) expected to remain sidelined until at least December. Still, the Pacers were the seventh-slowest team in the league last season in terms of pace. That's not expected to change, and it could limit possessions and make it difficult for Holiday to consistently fill up the stat sheet. Read Past Outlooks

Struggles with shot in 17 minutes

Holiday had nine points (3-12 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four assists in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 119-111 loss to the Timberwolves.
ANALYSIS
Holiday missed last Friday's preseason matchup due to an illness but was healthy enough to give it a go in this one. Holiday is a better perimeter shooter than fellow backup point guard T.J. McConnell, but the latter outplayed the former in this one, posting 10 points, eight dimes, three boards, two steals, and one block in 20 minutes. As such, it's worth keeping an eye on who wins the primary backup gig behind Malcolm Brogdon.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Holiday had rather pedestrian freshman and sophomore years at UCLA, but then burst onto the scene as a junior in 2017-18. He became a dominant scorer, having the ability to beat opposing defenders off the dribble or simply pull up and knock down shots from the perimeter. Holiday led the Bruins offensively with 20.3 points per game and hit a ridiculous 42.9 percent of his three-pointers, which marked a third straight year shooting over 40 percent from deep. However, he was also a distributor when needed and played solid defense, adding 5.8 assists and 1.3 steals to his final stat line in college. Following the breakout year, Holiday elected to leave early for the professional ranks and was selected by the Pacers with the 23rd overall pick in the first round. While he's got two family members with NBA experience -- brothers Jrue Holiday and Justin Holiday -- there's still some concerns surrounding Holiday's size, as he stands just 6-foot-1 and weighs in at 185 pounds. He'll certainly bulk up, but he could have trouble defending some of the bigger guards in the league. Either way, Holiday isn't likely in line for a huge role as a rookie. Darren Collison is locked in as a starter and Cory Joseph has earned the backup role with solid reserve play, while Tyreke Evans was brought in this offseason and can also handle the ball when needed. That means Holiday will likely just see spot minutes most nights and the 2018-19 campaign should generally be considered a developmental year. That said, both Collison and Joseph are on expiring deals, which makes Holiday a prime dynasty target.
