Ben Simmons was named Rookie of the Year for the 2017-2018 season.
Simmons sat out last season with an injury, but the wait was well worth it for the Sixers. The team made the playoffs for the first time in six years thanks in large part to Ben Simmons' efforts on the court. He played in 81 games and averaged 15.8 points, 8.1 rebounds, 8.2 assists, 1.7 steals, 0.9 blocks and shot .545 percent from the floor. The only weakness in his game is a lack of an outside shot, but he was still able to deliver mid-round numbers for fantasy owners and the pairing of him and Joel Embiid will be a force to be reckoned with for years to come.
