Anthony Edwards
19-Year-Old GuardG
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Edwards has more question marks than the average top pick, but there's no doubt that he has the physical tools to become a star in the NBA. Edwards will presumably slide into the starting small forward spot in Minnesota, though there could be some positional overlap with Malik Beasley and D'Angelo Russell, especially with Ricky Rubio now at point guard. In 32 games at Georgia last year, Edwards averaged 19.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.6 blocks while shooting 40.2 percent from the field and 29.4 percent from three. From a fantasy perspective, he should contribute mostly in the points category and rack up some rebounds, as well. The concern will be his overall efficiency and other peripheral stats.

Personal Bio

Edwards was born on Aug. 5, 2001 in Atlanta, Georgia. He's worn the No. 5 jersey since high school to honor his mother and grandmother, who both died from cancer on the fifth day of separate months. As a result, Edwards was raised by his sister and brother. Edwards worked as an instructor at various youth camps during high school. Playing basketball at Holy Spirit Preparatory School, Edwards was rated a consensus five-star recruit and he earned McDonald's All-American and USA Today All-USA first team honors. While at Georgia in college, he intended to major in marketing. However, his freshman basketball campaign went so well that he opted to declare for the 2020 NBA Draft after being named SEC Freshman of the Year. Fans can follow Edwards on Twitter @theantman05.

College/International Summary

Edwards' first and only season at Georgia was wildly successful from an individual standpoint, as he remained on the Wooden Award watchlist all season long before eventually winning SEC Rookie of the Year honors, in addition to a second-team all-conference nod. He made an immediate impact as one of Georgia's highest-rated recruits in recent memory, and his role was so great that he led the entire conference in field-goal attempts (505). Edwards seemed to shine brightest when on the national stage, as he scored a season-high 37 points in a non-conference matchup Nov. 26 against Michigan State. It was one of three 30-point efforts in a season that saw Edwards average 19.1 PPG on 40.2 percent shooting. That mark was good enough to lead all freshmen in the nation, as well as earn him SEC Freshman of the Week honors on four separate occasions. While Edwards did not get to help Georgia steal a tournament bid via the SEC tournament due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he still entered the 2020 NBA Draft as one of the highest-rated prospects.

Hits career-high eight triples
GMinnesota Timberwolves
May 5, 2021
Edwards registered 42 points (17-22 FG, 8-9 3Pt, 0-1 FT), seven assists, six rebounds, one steal and one block in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 139-135 loss to the Grizzlies.
ANALYSIS
The 19-year-old contributed across the board Wednesday while matching his season high with 42 points on a season-high 17 made field goals. Edwards is making a strong case for Rookie of the Year, averaging 18.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.2 steals in 66 games. The rookie out of Georgia will look to keep it going Friday on the road against the Heat.
