2018 Fantasy Outlook
Gilgeous-Alexander played just one year of college ball at Kentucky, but showed plenty of upside as an all-around prospect and averaged 14.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.7 steals across 33.7 minutes. He's an underrated shooter after knocking down 48.5 percent of his field goal attempts and 40.4 percent of his three-pointers, while he's also got very good size for the point guard position. Gilgeous-Alexander stands 6-foot-6 and has a seven-foot wingspan, which should give him the ability to matchup with a handful of different positions on the defensive side of the ball. Considering the fact that he was selected with the 11th overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft, Gilgeous-Alexander will likely be expected to contribute right away, though he'll be stuck in a bit of a logjam at the point guard position. The Clippers dealt Austin Rivers to the Wizards this offseason, but still have the likes of Patrick Beverley and Milos Teodosic in the fold, as well as fellow first-round pick Jerome Robinson. For that reason, Gilgeous-Alexander may be stuck with minutes in the teens to open the season while being mentored by Beverley. The 20-year-old rookie has plenty of room to develop and does need to add some weight, so a bench role could be beneficial in the long run. Read Past Outlooks

GLos Angeles Clippers
October 18, 2018
Gilgeous-Alexander totaled 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 FT), four assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block across 28 minutes in the Clippers' 107-98 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
The rookie enjoyed a solid pro debut with a near-perfect showing from the field. Gilgeous-Alexander figures in for a solid second-unit role this season, which should afford the 20-year-old plenty of opportunity to reward fantasy owners who made an investment in the 11th overall pick.
