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

Role may be affected by Garland

June 20, 2019
Sexton's role may be impacted by the Cavaliers selecting Darius Garland with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2019 Draft.
ANALYSIS
With Garland slipping to five, it seems the Cavaliers' front office wasn't going to let him pass by, despite having a positional conflict with Sexton. Sexton averaged 16.7 points on 14.7 shots across 31.8 minutes per game during the 2018-19 campaign, and he notably averaged 21.9 points through the last 20 games of year. It's unclear if he and Garland will play side-by-side or fight for minutes at point guard.

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.
