While Paul George missed the first 11 games of the season due to his shoulder injuries, he was able to rebound and post a top-30 fantasy season.
That's not quite what we've come to expect from George, who was routinely taken in the top-15 before word of his shoulder troubles got out, but considering how badly the issue could've turned out, it's not a bad result at all. George's steals plummeted to 1.3 per game after two straight campaigns of at least two thefts per contest, but some of that can also be explained by a decline of nearly eight minutes per game. The other big issue was George's points falling to 21.0, down from 28.0 with OKC last year. That might not be a huge issue, however, as George was already an elite fantasy player and had never scored more than 23.7 points per game prior to that season. We've seen that George can co-exist with a high-usage superstar before and he should be able to return to more normal levels going forward as long as his health permits. A strong postseason would help PG's fantasy stock, but it's not like he was primed to be falling far in next year's drafts.
