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. Read Past Outlooks

Resurfaces in rotation
GIndiana Pacers
April 2, 2019
Holiday played 25 minutes off the bench and finished with 10 points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five assists, one rebound and one block Monday in the Pacers' 111-102 win over the Pistons.
Holiday had been excluded from the rotation in the Pacers' previous three games, but he stepped in as the team's third guard with Darren Collison (groin) and Wesley Matthews (hamstring) sitting out. Indiana has already ruled both Collison and Matthews out for their second straight game Wednesday in Detroit, so Holiday should again benefit from an expanded opportunity behind Cory Joseph and Tyreke Evans.
