    I understand he is not going to be the focal point in Philly.
    It is unfortunate, because I think JRich is capable for more.
    But couldn’t he just slot into the same role RoCo had in Philly, and still be a valuable fantasy contributor?

    Thoughts anyone?

    No worries with JRich! I think he will fit into a perfect spot starting at the #2 spot and getting big minutes. Even though the Sixers have some major weapons I think he will still have very solid fantasy value. He’s not shy to chuck it for sure!
    Good luck!

    I’m terrified he goes back to what he was before … someone who does not assert himself unless the path is wide open.

    If he goes back to being a defensive guy, that’s our avenue to value. He’ll likely be underdrafted because of his new situation, so that’s a good thing, but don’t expect the offensive numbers anywhere near what he did in MIA.

    Yeah, I agree the offensive numbers will be no where near what he had this past seasons.
    Hopefully, he will be a solid 3&D guy and contribute in that fashion.

    Thanks guys.

    Don’t give up on him! I think he has matured a lot and will be a decent fantasy contributor. He has the raw talent and confidence to fit right in!
    Good luck!

    Josh was fine last season when he wasn’t forced to take over ball-handling responsibilities while Dragic was injured. Once that happened, the defensive stats dried up which, in turn, killed a lot of his value.

    In Philly, I’d expect him to go back to being the guy he was before: not a huge role on offense but will take a good amount of threes and bring the stocks. He’ll be more than fine.
