2019 Fantasy Outlook
The eighth overall pick in the 2018 draft, Sexton drew his first start on the 11th game of the 2018-19 campaign and never looked back. He played in all 82 games, leading the Cavaliers in total points (1,371) while shooting an impressive 40.2 percent from three and 83.9 percent from the charity stripe. Though Sexton showed off his scoring ability, racking up 27 performances with at least 20 points, he was a poor passer for a point guard. He dished five or more assists on only 12 occasions and averaged 2.3 turnovers to his 3.0 assists per game. Defense wasn't Sexton's strong suit, either, as he recorded just 44 steals on the year. Based on his first season, Sexton projects to be a score-first guard, though his 6-foot-2, 190-pound frame isn't made for a shift to shooting guard. Early indications are that Sexton and 6-foot-2, 174-pound rookie Darius Garland will share the backcourt together, so the two may divvy up ballhandling responsibilities. Ultimately, until Sexton develops as a passer and defender, his fantasy value is relatively minimal given his limited contributions outside of scoring. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Collin Darnell Sexton was born in 1999 in Marietta, Georgia to Darnell and Gia Sexton. He attended Hillgrove High School in Powder Springs, Georgia for his first two years before moving on to Pebblebrook High School in Mableton, Georgia. As a junior, Sexton averaged 28.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 2.1 steals. In his senior season, he posted 32.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.7 steals per game. As a result, Sexton was named 2017 First-Team All-State and Class 7A Player of the Year. He would also earn McDonald's All-American, Jordan Brand Classic, and Nike Hoop Summit invitations. Sexton also won MVP while representing the USA at the 2016 FIBA U-17 World Championships in Spain after averaging 17 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.2 assists.

College/International Summary

The highlight of Sexton's early college career was one of the strangest games in recent memory. Due to ejections, eliminations due to fouls, and injuries, Alabama had to play for 10 minutes against Minnesota with just three players. Sexton took over with a career-high 40 points and nearly helped the undermanned Crimson Tide to an early-season win. It was a hint of the type of scoring potential the 6-foot-3 guard possessed. Two weeks later, he would put 30 points on Arizona. Sexton caught fire at the end of the season. He scored at least 21 points in five straight games. He helped Alabama beat Texas A&M and Auburn in the SEC Tournament with a combined 58 points before being held to 21 points by Kentucky. Alabama was invited to the NCAA Tournament and beat Virginia Tech in the first round behind 25 points and six assists from Sexton. He averaged 19.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists before declaring for the 2018 NBA Draft, where he was chosen by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the eighth overall pick.

Sexton finished with 26 points (12-16 FG, 2-2 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal in 36 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Bulls.
ANALYSIS
While he may not have taken a single three-point attempt, Sexton came out hot in this one, scoring a game-high 26 points on an impressive 75 percent shooting. Over the last two months, Sexton has played at a top-60 level, producing per-game stats of 23.8 points, 3.9 assists, 2.3 triples and 1.0 steals, while shooting 49.0 percent from the field, and 86.4 percent from the line in that span prior to this gem. Both Darius Garland (groin) and Kevin Porter (concussion) have been sidelined over the last few games, giving Sexton some extra on-court opportunity, seeing his usage rate jump from 26.7 on the season to 32.0 over his previous three outings.

Past Season Summaries
2019

Sexton appeared in all 65 games for the Cavaliers during the coronavirus-shortened 2019-20 regular season. He set per-game career highs in points (20.8), rebounds (3.1) and steals (1.0) while also averaging 3.0 assists. He set career marks in field-goal percentage (47.2) and free-throw percentage (84.6) while also hitting 38.0 percent of his threes. Sexton set single-game career highs in points (41), threes (six) and steals (three). His other season highs stood at nine assists, seven rebounds and two blocks. In the NBA ranks, he was 13th in total minutes (2,143), fourth in two-point field goal attempts (831) and 18th in points (1,349). Sexton arguably had his best all-around performance of the season Mar. 2 during a game against the Jazz. In 39 minutes, he accumulated 32 points (11-17 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 6-8 FT), five rebounds, three assists and three steals. It was one of his five games with at least 30 points, one of his eight games with at least four made threes, one of his 13 games with at least five rebounds and one of his 35 contests with at least three assists. Sexton also grabbed at least one steal in 42 contests and blocked at least one shot in six games.

2018

Sexton made his NBA debut in 2018 and quickly established himself as the starting point guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers. By the end of the 2018-2019 season, he started 72 of the Cavs' 82 games. And Sexton proved durable, having played in all of Cleveland's 82 matches. On Nov. 24, he registered a career-high 29 points against the Houston Rockets, leading his squad to a 117-108 upset. A few weeks later, on Dec. 8, the rookie duplicated that feat with another 29-point performance to power the Cavs to a 116-101 victory over the Wizards. For the season, Sexton averaged 16.7 points per game and scored 1,371 total points. Late in the season, he went on a scoring run and became the first rookie since Tim Duncan to break the 23-point barrier in seven-straight games. On Mar. 8, he sank his 76th three pointer of the year, breaking Kyrie Irving's Cavs rookie record for made treys. Sexton went on to finish the season with 119 made threes. In addition to scoring, he led his team with 243 assists and 2,605 minutes played. Sexton's Cavaliers ended the season at 19-63 and did not qualify for the playoffs. Sexton was later named to the 2018-19 All-Rookie Second Team.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
In just one year of college ball, Sexton was able to generate national attention with his play at Alabama. He started 32-of-33 games despite being a freshman and wound up with averages of 19.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 0.9 steals across 29.9 minutes. He wasn't the most efficient player when considering his position and shot just 44.7 percent from the field, 33.6 percent from beyond the arc and 77.8 percent from the free-throw line. Still, his athleticism, aggressiveness and passion, as well as his impressive ability to create for himself as a scorer, won over the Cavaliers and ultimately earned him a selection with the eighth overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. His situation with Cleveland should be a positive when considering his Fantasy value. George Hill and Jordan Clarkson currently present some potential roadblocks to playing time, but with superstar LeBron James leaving in free agency, it wouldn't be surprising if the team turned their attention to Sexton and his development. While it may take some to get accustomed to the NBA level and gain the trust with his teammates, look for Sexton to become a relevant Fantasy option as the season progresses. There are some concerns with his size (6-foot-2) and his ability to act as a facilitator rather than just a scorer, but again, the Cavaliers could throw him in the fire early considering his upside. While efficiency issues and turnovers could hurt his value at times, look for Sexton to be an intriguing dynasty draft pick and also a potential high-risk, high-reward type of player in later rounds of other standard drafts.
