Montrezl Harrell took a small step back in 2019-20, finishing with top-100 value while averaging 18.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, 0.6 steals and 1.1 blocks while shooting a career-low 58.0% from the field in 27.8 mpg.
The minutes, points and rebounds were all career-highs, but Harrell slipped about two rounds in the fantasy rankings because of declines in field goal percentage, steals and blocks. Those are really the building blocks of his fantasy appeal, and while he's still a big boost to FG% (and managed a career-best but still-bad .658 from the line), Trez needs those defensive numbers to tick back up in order to maximize his potential. This was the first time in Harrell's career where his per-minute blocks declined substantially, so hopefully it's just a blip and he can get back to top-75 output.
