Ja Morant had a solid game on Tuesday with 20 points (7-for-20 FGs, 5-for-6 FTs), two rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.
Morant's fantasy stat set is lacking in peripheral stats, but he's averaging 18.5 points and 6.0 assists per game, which is impressive for a rookie point guard. He's had a similar path to Trae Young for a few years now, and Young started his rookie season on a rough note but kicked it into overdrive in the second half. It would be unwise to expect that from Morant, but steady improvement should get him into late-round value in 9-cat leagues and mid-round value in 8-cat leagues before long.
