Luka Doncic
19-Year-Old GuardG
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Doncic entered the 2018 NBA Draft as one of the more hyped international players in recent memory. He picked up EuroLeague MVP honors in his fourth season with Real Madrid and finished the year with averages of 16.0 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.1 steals across 33 games. He also hit 1.7 three-pointers per contest at a 32.9 percent clip. Doncic's production earned him a selection with the third overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft and he now heads to Dallas as another building block for the future. It seems likely that Doncic is thrust into big minutes right away and even though there may be some growing pains in terms of his fit alongside promising second-year guard Dennis Smith, his extended range at 6-foot-8 and versatility to make in impact at three different positions are all positives for his future Fantasy outlook. Doncic's numbers likely won't be overly gaudy in Year 1, but he'll enter the season as the best all-around Fantasy rookie, and he projects as a much more efficient scorer than the other guards in his draft class. Look for the rookie to be a coveted selection in dynasty leagues and he'll also be an intriguing late-round selection in standard drafts for those hoping Doncic makes a seamless transition to the NBA.

Doncic is expected to start at forward this season, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
MacMahon reported earlier that Dirk Nowitzki "will likely come off the bench", per coach Rick Carlisle. To fill that gap, Carlisle is expected to insert Doncic. It's unlikely Doncic will be limited to power forward, however, as his ballhandling and passing ability should allow him to play guard as well.
