Luka Doncic received MVP consideration and top-25 8/9-cat standing by stuffing the stat sheet on a nightly basis.
The 21-year-old Doncic took the league by storm right out of the gate and continued to post gaudy numbers throughout the season all while battling wrist, thumb and ankle injuries. The league leader in triple-doubles, with 14, dropped 28.7 points a night, to go along with 9.3 rebounds and 8.7 assists. In addition to the ridiculous combination of PTS/REB/AST, Doncic is also near the top of the league in turnovers with 4.2 per game, dropping his 9-cat ranking to 24 in comparison to his 8-cat ranking of 12. The high turnover rate is not shocking for such a young player with a usage rate as high as Luka’s (35.4, 2nd in the NBA) but future owners will surely hope to see those numbers decrease. His percentages (46% FG, 75% FT) slightly dropped his overall value but the scoring volume is a worthy consolation for owners. After a mid-second round ADP this season, expect Luka to be a first-round pick next year as he is on the cusp of becoming an elite fantasy option.
