Kyle Anderson 2020-2021 Outlook


Recommended Posts

He's going undrafted mostly. Currently owned in 7% of leagues only. He's been underwhelming since moving to Memphis. 

 

However, he's had a sneakily good preseason. 12.3ppg 6.3rpg 1.8bpg 2.0treys in less than 22 minutes a game. 

 

Could this be the year he returns to Top 75 value again? He's definitely worth a flyer towards the latter part of drafts.

Pick up of the year (2020)

The Andersons got tickets to the game?

He struggled with shoulder injuries and then had surgery, which basically wiped out his past 2 seasons and affected his play.  Now he looks even better than before because he's added a 3 point shot.

  • tonycpsu changed the title to Kyle Anderson 2020-2021 Outlook

dropped Toppin for Kyle when the line became 13/10/1 w 2 blocks which i don't believe Obi gets near more than a few times all year. KA was strong in preseason as well, double digit scoring and averaged two 3pm in limited mins to go with his usual contributions. Wasn't his lack of shooting ability the only real knock on his game besides athleticism? I'm all in babyyyy

Leading the team w 18 mins, a +13 on the court. He takes 3s now? About to get taken off every wire


We've all seen this before, when he started and played well for a few weeks in the last 2 seasons too before fading. Career averages will tell you that. Was a great Pop project but never got the consistent minutes once joining Memphis. If you have someone worse to drop then go for it, but don't be surprised if you'll be looking for a replacement again in 1-2 weeks.

Looking at his splits from last season, he averaged 6.5/4/3 first month or so, but those numbers were all higher in the bubble. 

In 2018-19, he averaged 7/7/3 in November compared to season averages of 8/6/3

Point being he hasn't posted numbers like this in a while, and the idea that he's always hotter out of the gates is overblown. He certainly was never shooting triples until now, and that's a game-changer for his real life value if it sticks

He's been playing like the 3rd best player of Memphis since the start of the preseason and definitely worth more than 7% rostered on Yahoo

 

But I think, at the end of the day, he's looked at as more of a temporary solution than long-term since JJJ and Winslow have yet to return to the lineup.  Curious to hear everyone's thoughts on if this production can be sustained with a full, healthy roster.

The only thing that seems like an outlier for him over the first 2 games are the rebounding numbers.  He's playing the 4, BClarke has barely played first 2 games, and there's really nobody else crashing the boards.  The handful of stocks, assists and occasional big scoring game we've seen before from Slomo.

Check out his preseason numbers. This is a bounce back year for SloMo

 

Bounce back from what? This might be his 4th or 5th breakout, "dark horse", "fantasy sleeper" year though...... playing against BKN BOS LA*2 in the next 4 of 5 games. We'll see how he does. Game has finished and he's still available in all my leagues.

Bounce back from the past 2 disappointung fantasy seasons? Normally, you bounce back after failing to live up to expectations, which Kyle Anderson has failed to do the past 2 years. 

 

If you've been watching MEM games even in the preseason, KA has been more assertive offensively compared to the past 2 seasons.
