Michael Porter Jr. averaged 7.5 points, 0.8 3s, .4.1 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.4 blocks on .495 shooting in 48 games for 263/249 value in 8/9-cat leagues.
Porter Jr. had some huge games and amazing highlight reel stretches which had fantasy owners clamoring to scoop him on the waiver wire several times this season. The game tape shows a rookie who is extremely raw, but has an uncanny knack for making plays on both ends of the floor. It's way too hard to trust MPJ given his injury history (hip injury in college and back surgery last year), but he'll be a juicy "sleeper" pick next year for all of the reasons above. For now, it's too hard to peg his actual value with all the moving parts the Nuggets have.
