2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Pelicans took no chances during the 2019 NBA Draft, selecting Williamson with the No. 1 overall pick. Williamson enters the league as one of the most-hyped prospects in recent memory -- possibly going as far back as LeBron James in 2003. The Duke one-and-done averaged 22.6 points on an absurd 68.0 percent shooting, 8.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.8 blocks in 33 collegiate games. Williamson will be the focal point of the Pelicans' mini-rebuild in the aftermath of trading Anthony Davis to the Lakers. Williamson is a virtual lock to start from Day 1, though what his true position is at the NBA level remains somewhat of a mystery. At 285 pounds, Williamson has the bulk to play center, but his 6-foot-7 frame suggests he's more of a forward. Complicating things further, Williamson's jumpshot is a clear work in progress, and the Pelicans may have to work to put four floor-spacers around him at all times. What we do know is that he has the potential to be one of the best athletes we've ever seen on the hardwood, and there should be no shortage of gravity-defying dunks, blocks and rebounds. From a fantasy perspective, counting on the rookie to have a high floor as a rebounder, defender and efficient inside scorer seems safe. The other things -- volume scoring, passing, three-point shooting, free-throw percentage -- are cloudy. Read Past Outlooks

Continues preseason dominance

October 14, 2019
Williamson posted 22 points (8-11 FG, 6-8 FT, 0-1 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two steals and one assist in 31 minutes Sunday in the Pelicans' 123-114 preseason win over the Spurs.
ANALYSIS
Williamson's blend of strength and touch down low made him an unstoppable force during his lone season of college, and he's thus far faced little resistance in the paint from professional competition. Through three exhibition games, Williamson has averaged 23.3 points in 27.3 minutes while converting 71.4 percent of his shot attempts.
