2023 Fantasy Outlook
Dosunmu has played a sizeable role for the Bulls in each of his first two seasons and yet has very little to show for it. He played 26.2 minutes per game during the 2022-23 season, averaging 8.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 0.8 steals, which was good enough for top-230 value in standard leagues. With Lonzo Ball already ruled out for the entire upcoming season due to an ongoing knee issue, Dosunmu should once again be an every-night part of the rotation. However, the Bulls brought in Jevon Carter during the offseason, while Coby White appears to have found his niche. Carter is slated to start on opening night, meaning Dosunmu's playing time could reflect that of a backup, as opposed to a starter. Given he has been unable to put up standard league value, even when afforded substantial playing time, his outlook is far from rosy. Read Past Outlooks

Good to go Friday
GChicago Bulls
April 19, 2024
Dosunmu (quad) is available for Friday's Play-In Game against the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
ANALYSIS
Despite missing the final four games of the regular season, Dosunmu played 41 minutes in Wednesday's Play-In victory over Atlanta, putting up 19 points, three assists, two blocks and a rebound. After playing 41 minutes Wednesday, the Bulls are not expected to limit the 24-year-old's minutes, especially in a win-or-go-home scenario.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
On a tear
GChicago Bulls
February 12, 2024
Dosunmu delivered a career-high 29 points in Monday's win over Atlanta, bringing his season-long averages to 13.2 points, 3.4 rebounds 3.2 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.8 blocks across 13 games as a starter.
ANALYSIS
Dosunmu has boomed for four games with at least 20 points over the past month. The 24-year-old has buried 41.0 percent of 157 catch-and-shoot threes thus far, which marks a huge leap from the 32.1 percent clip he posted on 194 three-point attempts last season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
Dosunmu - the No. 38 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft - compiled a better-than-expected rookie campaign. Benefitting the rookie was that Chicago dealt with a myriad of backcourt injuries, including Zach LaVine playing 67 games, Lonzo Ball playing 35 and Alex Caruso playing 41. Those absences allowed Dosunmu to step into an expanded role more often than anticipated. He started 40 of his 77 appearances and averaged 8.8 points, 3.3 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.2 combined steals-plus-blocks in 27.4 minutes. Dosunmu's efficiency also impressed. The rookie slashed 52/38/68, resulting in a 59.6 percent true-shooting percentage. He didn't create a ton of those opportunities on his own - 69 percent of his shots were assisted - but that's to be expected given the number of relatively high-usage players on the Bulls like Ball, LaVine, DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic. Free throw attempts were one of the primary points of concern for Dosunmu who shot just 1.3 freebies per 36 minutes. That wasn't for a lack of effort, however, as he took 41 percent of his shots at the rim - good for the 93rd percentile among players labeled as combo guards. Overall, he ranked 211th in per-game fantasy production. In theory, Dosunmu should improve on that rank, but his path to playing time is complicated when the Bulls are healthy. That said, Dosunmu has earned his way into the starting five to open the season, taking over as the team's starting point guard to open the season with Lonzo Ball set to miss a few months due to a knee injury. Dosunmu's expected fantasy value should jump as a result, though he's still a late-round flier, given that Caruso, Goran Dragic and Coby White are bound to see minutes as well.
Dosunmu was selected by the Bulls with the 38th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. The 6-foot-5, 200-pound guard was an electric scorer for the Illini throughout his two seasons. Dosunmu averaged 20.1 points while also adding 6.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game last year with Illinois. However, he doesn't project as an every-game player for the Bulls since the team is relatively deep at guard.
