Josh Giddey

19-Year-Old GuardG
2021 Fantasy Outlook
For an 18-year-old in need of seasoning at the NBA level, Giddey is in an excellent spot to develop. But for the immediate future, Giddey may have difficulty gaining relevance in most fantasy leagues. He comes over from Australia with a diverse stat profile - 10.8 points, 7.4 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.1 steals in the NBL last season - but he'll have to contend for touches with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Lu Dort and a host of other young players the Thunder are looking to develop. We didn't get a great look at Giddey in Summer League, as he rolled his ankle early in his first game and played just six total minutes. As a poor shooter (29.3% 3PT; 69.1% FT) with a thin frame, Giddey doesn't project to have a major off-ball impact. He'll likely be eased into action early on, with his best chance for fantasy relevance coming later in the season if the Thunder deal some key players or embrace a full-on tank, as was the case over the second half of 2020-21.

$Signed a two-year, $12.28 million contract with the Thunder in August of 2021. Contract includes $6.59 million team option for 2023-24.
Scores 19 with four steals

October 24, 2021
Giddey finished Sunday's loss to the 76ers with 19 points (8-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and four steals.
ANALYSIS
After two lackluster showings to begin his NBA career, Giddey had easily his best game yet, putting up a well-rounded stat line in 34 minutes of action. Like most rookies, Giddey's production will be difficult to predict night-to-night, but the good news for fantasy managers is that the No. 6 pick in 2021 has already locked down a starting spot on a team willing to give its young players an extra-long leash.
