Ben Simmons‘ seven turnovers couldn’t prevent him from notching a 14-6-10 line with a steal and a block in Saturday’s defeat.
Simmons will have turnover problems all year long but the good has outweighed the bad thus far. He didn’t visit the free throw line and was a solid 7-of-13 from the field tonight, so it counts as a win for 8-cat owners. Simmons is the frontrunner for Rookie of the Year and should continue to post middle-round numbers for fantasy purposes. It’ll be trial by fire with Philly scrapping for a playoff spot this season but Simmons and the Sixers will be better for it in the long run.
