2019 Fantasy Outlook
Clarke transferred to Gonzaga last season after two years with San Jose State, and he won the WCC Rookie of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year behind versatile play on both ends of the court. Over his last two collegiate seasons, Clarke put up 17.1 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists on 64.0 percent shooting from the field. On top of the near double-double he averaged on offense, Clarke also posted a healthy 4.1 combined blocks/steals. He was a standout in the NCAA tournament, leading the Bulldogs on a deep run. The No. 21 overall pick in 2019 should be the primary backup at one of the frontcourt positions behind Jonas Valanciunas and Jaren Jackson, where he'll likely find a rotational role with minutes in the 20s. His rebounding, shooting and defensive numbers should provide him a high floor as a rookie on an up-and-coming Memphis team. Read Past Outlooks
