Serge Ibaka put up top-80 value in the regular fantasy season, with a big surge in his 3-pointers helping make up for a decline in blocks.
The Raptors really dialed back on Ibaka's distance shooting last season (he only hit 29.0% of his threes) but Ibaka cranked the volume back up this year, hitting 1.3 triples per game on 39.8% from the arc. The only other number to really change in his profile was a sharp drop from 1.4 to 0.8 blocks per game. Ibaka will be hitting free agency this offseason and while he hopes to remain in Toronto, the team may not want to commit to him to preserve their flexibility moving forward. Ibaka has a middle-round stat set but it's fair to question if another team could use him as optimally as the Raps. No matter what happens, we'd certainly trade those threes in for a return to form in the blocks category, as any further erosion in Ibaka's rim protection is the biggest threat to his fantasy appeal.
