Sacramento Kings
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Bagley has failed to live up to expectations that come with being the No. 2 overall pick, as he was in 2018. Staying on the court has been the primary issue for the forward, as he's appeared in just 118 games across his first three seasons. Last season was Bagley's worst from a per-game fantasy perspective, where he ranked 230th, and a per-minute perspective, where he ranked 289th. In 25.9 minutes, he averaged 14.1 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.0 assists. On a positive note, he showed off an improved three-point shot, going 37-of-108 for a career-high 34.3 percent. The 2021-22 season is huge for Bagley, as it's his final season before entering restricted free agency. There's a good chance he starts at power forward unless coach Luke Walton decides to surprisingly start all three of De'Aaron Fox, Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield, which would probably result in Harrison Barnes sliding up to power forward. Ultimately, Bagley needs to make strides as an efficient shooter to start becoming an impactful player. Adding some playmaking ability and defensive stats would be a plus as well, but in the modern pace-and-space era, Bagley being able to convert open threes would go a long way. It would be understandable for fantasy managers in standard leagues to take a gamble on Bagley hoping for some long-awaited payoff in a contract year. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Marvin Bagley III was born in 1999 in Tempe, Arizona. He is the son of Marvin Bagley Jr. and Tracy Bagley and has two brothers. His father played college football at North Carolina A&T and went on to play professionally in the Arena Football League. Bagley's grandfather, Joe Caldwell, played six seasons in the NBA from 1964-70 and five seasons in the American Basketball Association from 1970-75. Caldwell is one of 20 players to make an All-Star team in both the NBA and ABA, and he won a gold medal as a member of Team USA at the 1964 Summer Olympics in Japan. Bagley III played high school ball first at Corona del Sol in Tempe as a freshman, then at Hillcrest Prep Academy in Phoenix as a sophomore. At Hillcrest, Bagley was teammates with fellow NBA big man Deandre Ayton. He transferred again, this time to Sierra Canyon School in Chatsworth, California, which cost him a year of eligibility. Bagley averaged 24.9 points and 10.1 rebounds per game during his 2016-17 season at Sierra Canyon. Bagley won the 2017 Gatorade California Player of the Year and John R. Wooden CIF Southern Section Player of the Year awards while maintaining a 3.4 grade-point average. Bagley loves to write and record music. While living in Los Angeles, he volunteered at Hoops with Heart, a non-profit benefiting underprivileged youth. Fans can follow him on Twitter (@MB3FIVE) and Instagram (mb3five). After reclassifying from the 2018 class to the high school 2017 class, Marvin Bagley landed at Duke University as the consensus top recruit in the country. Bagley averaged 21.0 points, 11.1 rebounds, 0.9 blocks and 0.7 three-pointers per game while shooting 61.4 percent from the field in his lone season (2017-18) at Duke. The season was filled with notable performances such as a 32-point, 21-rebound outburst against Florida State, just the eighth 30-20 game in Duke history. In an ACC Tournament matchup with Notre Dame, Bagley posted 33 points, the third most by a freshman in the tournament history. He also recorded 17 rebounds, one short of tying Ralph Sampson's freshman tournament mark. Bagley's freshman campaign came to an end with an NCAA Tournament Elite Eight loss to the Kansas Jayhawks. His season culminated in consensus first-team All-American honors, first-team All-ACC honors, as well as both the ACC Rookie of the Year and ACC Player of the Year awards. At the end of his freshman season, Bagley declared himself eligible for the 2018 NBA Draft and was chosen by the Sacramento Kings with the second overall pick.

Just misses double-double
FSacramento Kings
January 19, 2022
Bagley closed with 17 points (7-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds and one block over 25 minutes during Wednesday's 133-131 loss to the Pistons.
ANALYSIS
Bagley moved back into the starting lineup Wednesday after missing the Kings' previous contest with a shoulder injury. The fourth-year forward continued his recent string of solid production, as he has collected at least nine boards in each of his past four games while averaging 16.8 points over that span. After being buried on the Sacramento's bench early in the season, Bagley has emerged as an important piece in the team's frontcourt, raising his season averages to 9.4 points and 7.3 rebounds per contest.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Bagley endured thumb and foot injuries that cost him the better part of his second NBA season. The 2018 first-round pick (second overall) has rightfully earned an injury-prone tag as a result since he's suited up in just 75 games over two seasons in the Association. Considering he hasn't played in a game since Jan. 20, Bagley should enter the 2020-21 season at full health, walking into a starting gig at power forward immediately. If that's the case, he could push for 30 minutes per game, a sizable uptick from the 25.7 he averaged last year. The 21-year-old has evident upside if that comes to fruition. Through 13 games last year, he posted 14.2 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest while hitting 46.7 percent of his field goals, and an increase in playing time would be a blessing for his fantasy upside.
Prior to February, Bagley dealt with injury issues and was eased into a role, seeing just 23.5 minutes per game across 37 appearances. Things opened up for the rookie once February hit, however. Across the final three months of the season, the Duke product averaged 17.8 points on 14.0 shots, 9.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 27.7 minutes. He kept up the great production during his four starts, averaging 20.0 points, 11.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists. At the age of 19, Bagley has already demonstrated upside as one of the league's better offensive rebounders, ranking 17th in offensive rebound percentage (10.4). Heading into his second season, Bagley's role as the Kings' starting power forward seems cemented, and it would be surprising if he saw much fewer than 30 minutes per contest. While his three-pointer (30-for-96, 31.3%) and free-throw shooting (181-for-262, 69.1%) need some work, he was able to shoot an impressive 50.4 percent from the field overall. As is the case with many promising second-year players, he'll likely have an aggressive ADP come draft season, and fantasy owners may have to take on some risk if they want land Bagley for certain.
Bagley spent last season at Duke as a freshman, where he won ACC Player of the year by averaging 21.0 points and 11.1 rebounds per game. He also shot 61.4 percent from the field and 39.7 percent from deep, though took only 1.8 threes per contest. That resume was strong enough for the Kings to draft Bagley No. 2 overall during the 2018 Draft. He appeared in four summer league tilts with the team, but was underwhelming, posting averages of 10.3 points on 33.3 percent shooting, 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks across 26.1 minutes. Still, Bagley, who is 6-foot-11 and 234 pounds, is expected to start at power forward to begin the season and should see significant run in the frontcourt, and maybe even some at small forward. He should be a nightly double-double threat, though it’s not clear if he'll be a dynamic enough of a scorer during Year 1 to make big impact at the NBA level. All things considered, Bagley’s pedigree and projected usage alone is probably enough to be worth a late-round flyer at the very least in most standard formats.
