April 11, 2019, 1:27 pmMarvin Bagley III - F - Sacramento Kings
Marvin Bagley finished his rookie season with averages of 14.9 points, 7.6 rebounds, 0.5 steals, 1.0 blocks and 0.5 3-pointers on .504 from the field and .691 from the line in just over 25 minutes a night.
Bagley's season saw him bring a little more to the table defensively than initially expected, which was nice to see, but he'll still need to round out his game a bit more before he's reliant on workload to get the job done. The rookie did go top-100 for about a month around the season's end, and that's a nice range for him in the near future. He's a pretty polished scorer and can get to his spots fairly routinely, so it's just be about expanding his game and adding more tricks to the bag even though the current stuff generally works out. One concern is the fact that Bagley missed five games with a left knee sprain and 11 more with a left knee bone bruise, but considering his strong finish to the year we're not overly worried.

Marvin Bagley scored 19 points on 8-of-18 shooting (1-of-3 from deep, 2-of-4 from the line) with 14 rebounds and one block over 32 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Pelicans.
Bagley's shot selection and inability to pass right now is lurking beneath the radar and it will be interesting to see how the Kings channel that next season. He's going to put up big numbers as long as he's on the floor for the Kings' last game on Wednesday in Portland.

Marvin Bagley started for Willie Cauley-Stein (personal) and hit just 4-of-16 shots (5-of-9 FTs) for 13 points, 12 rebounds, two assists and one block over 30 minutes in Friday's blowout loss to the Jazz.
Bagley is going to get all he can eat, barring any knee issues, and he has the organizational backing to take any shot he pleases right now. He's not focusing on defense as much as you'd want given his age and shot selection on offense, but he's going to charge to the finish in fantasy leagues.

Marvin Bagley will get a spot-start on Friday vs. the Jazz.
It looks like the Kings will try to go small against Rudy Gobert and the Jazz with Willie Cauley-Stein out for personal reasons. You can use Bagley as you normally would.

Marvin Bagley returned from a one-game absence with 19 points, eight rebounds, one assist, one block and two threes in a loss to the Rockets on Tuesday.

Marvin Bagley has been removed from the official NBA injury report ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Rockets.
Bagley surprisingly missed the game against the Spurs on Sunday but he should be back tonight. With Harry Giles expected to sit, there should be plenty of minutes for the rookie who is finishing the year strong and needs to be owned in all formats.

Marvin Bagley (stomach illness) is out for Sunday's game against the Spurs.
With Bagley and Harry Giles (thigh) both out, we should see a heavy dose of Willie Cauley-Stein, Nemanja Bjelica and Harrison Barnes in this one. With the Spurs' love for playing big men, Kosta Koufos and/or Caleb Swanigan could also see a few minutes depending on the matchups.

Marvin Bagley (illness) is questionable vs. the Spurs on Sunday.
The Kings have officially been eliminated from the playoffs and they'll likely be cautious with Bagley heading into their last six games. If he can't suit up then expect Harrison Barnes, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Willie Cauley-Stein to all pick up some extra minutes.

Marvin Bagley had a big game in Saturday's loss to the Rockets, scoring 20 points (10-of-20 FG) to go with 12 rebounds and a block in 27 minutes of action.
Even if the playoffs seem bleaker by the day for the Kings, keep Bagley in your lineups since the Kings would be focusing more on player development now. Bagley has been finishing strong and expect him to go all out in every game.

Marvin Bagley went 4-of-12 from the field on Thursday night in a loss to the Pelicans, posting 10 points eight rebounds, a steal and two blocks in 28 minutes off the bench.
Bagley got a little bit of additional run with Nemanja Bjelica leaving after eight minutes (illness) but couldn't turn it into extra production. He remains someone to keep locked into lineups to end the year so don't sweat the mediocre game here.
