2019 Fantasy Outlook
Knox joined the Knicks with relatively high expectations as the ninth overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. His upside as a scorer is obvious, given his athletic 6-foot-9 frame and nice shooting touch, but Knox struggled with efficiency as a rookie. He shot just 37.0 percent from the field on 12.2 attempts per game, 34.3 percent from deep on 4.9 attempts and 71.7 percent from the charity stripe on 3.0 attempts. While he racked up 11 games with at least 20 points, he also tallied 27 games in the single-digits. But it's important to consider how much of the offensive gameplan fell on him as a 19-year-old, as he led the Knicks in total minutes played (2,158) and total points (963). Heading into this season, Knox will have more help surrounding him, not to mention some presumed development over the summer. He figures to be the Knicks' starting small forward, so he should have no issues finding shots. Whether or not he can be efficient will be the ultimate determiner in his fantasy value.

Leads team in scoring

Knox totaled 25 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 9-12 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and a steal across 24 minutes in the Knicks' win over the Lakers in the Las Vegas Summer League on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Knox did a little bit of everything in the win, including lead his team in scoring. He's put together a strong string of games in the LVSL so far, averaging 18.5 points per game on 50 percent shooting in his last two contests. Knox will need to improve on last season's shooting percentage (37 percent) to score more than the 12.8 points per game he averaged as a rookie.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
In just one year of college ball at Kentucky, Knox immediately grabbed national attention for his ability to score the ball. In 37 starts, the forward posted an average of 15.8 points, while shooting 44.5 percent from the field and 34.1 percent from the three-point line. He demonstrated the ability to knock down shots from all levels of the court and that should translate well to the NBA game. Knox also has fantastic size and athleticism for the forward positions, which should allow him to get on the court right away and matchup with opposing players at the position without much issue. That potential for early playing time is further magnified by the fact that he's joining a Knicks team who will be without the services of superstar big man Kristaps Porzingis for at least the first few months of the season. That immediately suggests the Knicks won't be in playoff contention and could push the staff to give Knox big minutes out of the gate. While Knox is only 19 years old and will likely make plenty of mistakes early on, his potential to develop into an explosive scorer and a solid rebounder brings him into contention for dynasty leagues, as well as a riskier late-round guy in standard leagues for those betting on a quick transition. Still, with a lack of defensive statistics and the fact that he's almost guaranteed to struggle during stretches of the season considering his age, Fantasy owners will likely need to be patient with Knox.
