Marc Gasol was unable to return to early-round form in 2019-20, settling in with top-120/110 value (8/9-cat) as a secondary contributor while also battling injuries.
Gasol missed 27 games between two hamstring injuries, but even when he was playing he was not a primary concern on offense. There was some thought that he'd absorb a good chunk of Kawhi Leonard's vacated usage, but he actually did even less as a scorer in his new distributor role. His passing and selflessness are vital ingredients to Toronto's attack, but Gasol isn't enough of an offensive hub for his brilliant play to turn into fantasy stats. He averaged a career-low with 7.6 points per game, though the rest of his complementary numbers were strong: 6.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.9 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers. Big Spain took just 6.6 shots per contest and it's going to be hard for him to climb too far into the top-100 unless that changes going forward. A fully healthy Gasol likely improves on this ranking, but without the scoring his upside is capped.
