22-Year-Old CenterC
Washington Wizards
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Wagner saw a lot of the bench as a rookie, averaging just 4.8 points and 2.0 rebounds in 10.4 minutes per contest for the Lakers. He played behind JaVale McGee to start the season and eventually fell behind Ivica Zubac, as the latter put his talents on display for some solid stretches of basketball. Wagner was traded to the Wizards in a salary dump to clear cap space for Anthony Davis, and his value should increase with Washington. Thomas Bryant is entrenched as Washington's starter, but Wagner will compete with Ian Mahinmi to be the top backup at center, and he should garner some minutes at power forward as well. Wagner was a strong scorer, rebounder and three-point shooter while at Michigan, and aside from poor shooting (41.5 field goal percentage, 28.6 three-point percentage) as a rookie, he averaged 16.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.8 threes per 36 minutes. Those numbers are solid, but he'll still have to earn his minutes given Bryant's presumed role and the fact that Washington drafted forward Rui Hachimura ninth overall and brought in another floor-stretching big in Davis Bertans.

Scores 13 off bench
CWashington Wizards
October 23, 2019
Wagner provided 13 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds in 16 minutes during Wednesday's loss to Dallas.
ANALYSIS
The second-year center impressed with his shooting, though he provided little other value and added five turnovers and six fouls in 16 chaotic minutes off the bench. Clearly a skilled offensive player, Wagner has the opportunity to cultivate a sizable role in Washington due to the Wizard's lack of frontcourt depth.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Voted to the All-Big Ten Second Team as a junior at Michigan last year, Wagner was selected by the Lakers with the 25th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft after averaging 14.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and hitting 1.6 threes per game at 39.4 percent. Though he shot just 28.0 percent from distance during summer league, he was still able to score (12.5 PPG), rebound (8.0 RPG) and play defense at a solid clip (a combined 3.7 steals/blocks per tilt). At 6-foot-11, 245 pounds, Wagner will probably be see time at both power forward and center for the Lakers. It’s unlikely he'll start at center for the team, but considering the only other two centers on the roster are JaVale McGee (less than 10 minutes per game last season) and Ivica Zubac (more G-League minutes than NBA minutes last season), Wagner should be in line for significant run. From a Fantasy perspective, he'll probably be the most valuable in leagues that account for three-pointers made.
