2023 Fantasy Outlook
After missing the entirety of his rookie season due to a foot injury, Holmgren comes into the 2023-24 season with hype. While it is a very small sample size, Holmgren's numbers at the recent Summer League did very little to dampen the spirits of prospective managers. Across four games, he averaged 16.5 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 3.5 blocks. His percentages were serviceable, coming in at 48.9 percent from the field and 73.1 percent from the line. Obviously, the block numbers are an immediate takeaway, something his fantasy game is likely to be reliant on. He has the ability to stretch the floor, but as we saw in Las Vegas, he only connected on 0.3 three-pointers per game. He should open the regular season as the Thunder's starting center, providing him with an opportunity to be a fantasy-relevant player right out of the gate. The Thunder are a team on the rise, meaning he could very well be the third or even fourth option on offense at times. Coming off a foot injury could steer some managers in another direction. His upside on the defensive end should be enough to keep him afloat, even if his offensive game takes a while to come along. Walker Kessler finished as a fifth-round asset last season, blocking 2.3 shots per game. His offensive game is certainly a work in progress, averaging just 9.2 points. It's reasonably safe to assume Holmgren will average double-digit points, while potentially blocking more than two shots per game. Based on this very loose logic, managers should be looking to target him anywhere around pick 60. Read Past Outlooks

His father helped him develop his game growing up. Chet started attending Minnehaha Academy - a private school in Minneapolis - in sixth grade, when he stood 6-foot-2. He played alongside NBA player Jalen Suggs from then through high school. The school won its second straight Class 2A state championship while Holmgren was a freshman. However, Holmgren's breakout year was as a sophomore, when he averaged 18.6 points and 11.0 rebounds and also secured another state title. He also played AAU ball for Grassroots Sizzle and won tournament MVP at the Under Amour Association. As a junior, Holmgren averaged 14.3 points per game. As a senior, he averaged 21.0 points and 12.3 boards and won the Class 3A state title. Holmgren was also named Gatorade National Player of the Year among various other awards. According to ESPN, Holmgren was the No. 1 player in the 2021 class. The big recruit decided to play college ball at Gonzaga. During his college debut for the Bulldogs, Holmgren posted 14 points, 13 boards, seven blocks and six assists, becoming the first college player in a quarter-century to record at least 10 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and five blocks in a debut. Starting 31 of 32 appearances, Holmgren averaged 14.1 points, 9.9 rebounds, 3.7 blocks and 1.9 assists over 26.9 minutes per contest.

Flirts with double-double in finale
COklahoma City Thunder
April 15, 2024
Holmgren closed with 13 points (6-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds and one block in 12 minutes during Sunday's 135-86 victory over the Mavericks.
ANALYSIS
Holmgren's result was astounding considering his 12 minutes of usage in the blowout win. The Thunder's standout center sat early with the rest of the starters, but he had one of the best stat lines on the roster while logging the second-lowest minute total.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
Holmgren, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, will miss the entire 2022-23 season due to a Lisfranc injury to his right foot. Obviously, he shouldn't be drafted in year-long leagues. However, managers in dynasty/keeper formats should still view Holmgren as a high-end prospect with arguably the highest fantasy ceiling of any player in the 2022 NBA Draft class.
