• Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said that Spencer Dinwiddie will start at point guard moving forward.

    Jeremy Lin (ankle) is considered day-to-day and it will be Dinwiddie stepping up to the plate. He has some momentum going into his new role, dropping 18 points, two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Mavericks on Sunday. Owners will want to see him do it at least one more time before adding him.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Spencer Dinwiddie averaged 20.6 points, 1.9 3s, 3.5 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.3 blocks in 64 games for 93/155 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    Dinwiddie brought the volume again and benefited from extra playing time with injuries either to Kyrie Irving or Caris Levert. The Nets had trouble finding any consistency from their starting guards in terms of health and we've seen this movie before, Dinwiddie to the rescue. He was far from efficient but you can't find 20 & 7 late in your drafts so he provided a big boost for owners this year. Next year will be a tougher sell for Dinwiddie. He also tested positive for COVID this past week, which means his status for playing during the resumption of the year is in question.

  • Jarrett Allen
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    Jarrett Allen averaged 10.6 points, 9.5 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.3 blocks in 64 games for 114/95 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    Allen showed a lot of promise in his rookie year only to have the wet blanket of the DeAndre Jordan signing to ruin things in fantasy land. With Jordan opting to sit out the resumption of the season, we'll see a lot more Allen at center which is a good thing for everyone.

  • Rodions Kurucs
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    Nets forward Rodions Kurucs saw averages of 4.2 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.6 threes and 0.4 steals per game on .448 shooting from the field to finish just inside the top-400 in 8/9-cat per-game value.

    Kurucs' season was, for the most part, largely unmemorable, highlighted by a 19-point career-high game. He provided the Nets with depth at the forward position but in just 12.8 minutes pr game, Kurucs was unable to properly make an impact in the box scores. With Kevin Durant expected to be ready to play in 2020-21, don't expect on Kurucs to be able to build too much on what he's managed to put up in his humble pro resume.

  • DeAndre Jordan
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    DeAndre Jordan averaged 8.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.9 blocks on .666 shooting for 130/124 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    Jordan signing with the Nets was an immediate nail in the coffin for Jarret Allen to have any chance at increasing his workload and it resulted in two mediocre fantasy seasons. The double-digit rebounds are nice, but outside of that, Jordan provided little else as the field goal percentage wasn't as good as it seemed because he only averaged 8.3 points a night. He'll sit out the resumption which is going to be a theme for older players in non-contending teams.

  • Caris LeVert
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert finished the year averaging 17.7 points, 1.8 3s, 4.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.2 blocks for 132/182 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    LeVert had injury troubles as well this year (a common theme for the Nets) but he was able to cap off his season with a strong run as one of their primary playmakers. The counting stats are there, but the efficiency wasn't, but that's usually the case with players returning from injury. It's hard to see him keeping up the development as long as Kyrie Irving and Spencer Dinwiddie handle the ball, but with the resumption throwing things off the rails, we might see some big LeVert games this summer.

  • Wilson Chandler
    F, Brooklyn Nets

    Wilson Chandler finished the season averaging 5.9 points, 1.1 3s, 4.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.3 blocks on .404 shooting over 35 games for 282/287 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    Chandler struggled all year to stay healthy and has opted out of the season resumption. He didn't have any value this season and the extra time off should do a lot of good for him as he's shown the ability to produce when the circumstances are right.

  • Chris Chiozza
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Chris Chiozza averaged 4.0 points, 0.9 3s, 1.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.7 steals in 21 games for 306/307 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    Chiozza was looked over during the draft due to his size, but he has all the intangibles needed to run the point. He's accurate from deep (.435 career 3-point shooter) and has the court vision and passing ability to keep the boat afloat while he's in. If Spencer Dinwiddie and Kyrie Irving don't return to action, Chiozza should see a nice uptick in his assist numbers, but the signing of Tyler Johnson makes that future a bit murky.

  • Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot averaged 6.3 points, 1.0 3s, 2.3 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.2 blocks on .406 shooting over the course of 39 games for 337/331 per-game rankings in 8/9-cat leagues.

    TLC is always on the radar for 3-point streaming when someone is hurt, but he really struggled to get any consistency this year. After four years in the league, it's really hard to envision TLC becoming a starting caliber player without some drastic improvements somewhere as his 3-point shot was just an average .358 this season.

  • Dzanan Musa
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Buried in the Nets depth chart, Dzanan Musa posted 4.2 PPG, 2.0 RPG and 0.4 3PG over 35 games played for 417/435 value in 8/9-cat per-game value in 2019-20.

    Musa saw his 2019-20 become a yo-yo session between the Brooklyn Nets and their G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets. At just 11.5 minutes per game, Musa was unable to make any significant strides in what could have been a breakthrough season. With Caris LeVert eventually finding a path to healthy minutes and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot pushing Musa for minutes, Musa failed to warrant any consideration even in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Tyler Johnson played 31 games for the Suns, averaging 5.7 points, 0.8 3s, 1.7 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 0.4 assists which was good for 369 in value in 9-cat leagues.

    Johnson couldn't stay healthy and when he was on the floor, he was bad. The shot disappeared as he shot .380 from the field and the contract he signed was an absolute steal for him. Spencer Dinwiddie's status to play during the resumption is up in the air due to him being positive for COVID which means Johnson might get more burn than we anticipated.
