Neil Rochlani joins Dan Besbris for an in-depth look at the slightly lacking fantasy values of the Brooklyn Nets, and the multiple ways free agency could impact the players still on contract.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored a game-high 20 points with seven assists, three treys and a steal in 24 minutes of action in Thursday's preseason game against the Lakers.
Dinwiddie is going to get a lot of run whether it comes off the bench or in a starting role as he looks to be ready for the regular season opener. Draft him as you normally would.

Spencer Dinwiddie accumulated 12 rebounds, seven assists, five points, one steal and one three across 22 minutes on Friday night.
This was an impressive rebounding effort from the 6' 6" guard who should continue to play a prominent role for the Nets either off the bench or in the starting lineup.

Spencer Dinwiddie’s trainer, Olin Simplis, confirmed to Ian Begley of SNY that the 26-year-old is working a lot on his offense this offseason.
Besides shooting 3-pointers, Dinwiddie is apparently trying to play through contact and improve his finishing at the rim. Entering his fourth season with the Nets and his sixth overall in the NBA after being selected in the second round of the 2014 draft by the Pistons, it’s good to see the charismatic guard working on expanding his game. He averaged 16.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game in 68 appearances for the Nets last season and it’s likely that his numbers remain the same even after the arrival of Kyrie Irving.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 18 points with four boards and one steal in Saturday's 112-108 loss to the Sixers.
Dinwiddie continues to play well off the bench along with his fellow guards Caris LeVert and D'Angelo Russell. The Nets let this one slip away and will now have to win in Philly to keep their season alive.

Spencer Dinwiddie played 26 solid minutes off the bench on Thursday, finishing with 15 points and four boards.
Dinwiddie forgot to pass the ball, but was otherwise solid as he usually is. Unfortunately the Nets' bench mob wasn't enough in this one as the Sixers found a way to close out Game 3. Dinwiddie and the bench will have to be special to give the Nets a chance.

Spencer Dinwiddie went for 19 points on 8-of-16 from the field with three 3-pointers and three assists in 23 minutes in Monday's 145-123 Game 2 loss to the Sixers.
Dinwiddie looked great tonight and was firing away confidently from deep. He and his backcourt mate off the bench, Caris LeVert (13 points in 20 minutes), will need to keep the energy up against the Sixers' shallower bench as the Nets return home with the series tied 1-1.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 18 points with three boards, one assist and two treys in Saturday's 111-102 win against the Sixers.
Dinwiddie and the Nets bench helped take and not give back the lead in this one. The Sixers have trouble with scoring guards and it was obvious in this one. Dinwiddie, Caris LeVert and D'Angelo Russell combined for 67 points in this one. If the Nets' bench can give them the lift they did in this one, they'll have a chance in this series.

Spencer Dinwiddie had eight points, five assists and two threes in 25 minutes to wrap up another good season on Wednesday.
Dinwiddie was no sure thing this season as his success last year came from extended minutes while D'Angelo Russell was out. So, it was a pleasant surprise that while his assists and steals dropped, his points and FG percentage rose, causing him to finish in the top-120 (8-cat) on a per-game basis. Dinwiddie is now signed long-term, so you can expect more of the same from him unless Russell leaves and he inherits a starting job once again.

Spencer Dinwiddie was again quiet in Saturday's game against the Bucks, netting 10 points, three rebounds, one assist, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Dinwiddie shot 3-for-7 in tonight's game but was also a -5 the whole night. D'Angelo's Russell's rise to being a star this year put a small dent to Dinwiddie's appeal since emerging last year as a key contributor to the Nets. As long as Russell is in the lineup, expect Dinwiddie's ceiling in fantasy to have a limit considering how they both need the ball in order to make a significant impact in the game.

Spencer Dinwiddie was quiet in Wednesday's 105-115 loss to the Raptors, mustering just 14 points on 6-of-16 shooting in 32 minutes off the bench.
Dinwiddie could not get a rhythm going on offense, missing all six shot attempts from downtown. He ended up chipping in four rebounds and five assists to round out his line for the night. The emergence of D'Angelo Russell this season has dampened some of the appeal Dinwiddie garnered from a strong 2017-18 campaign. As long as Russell is the Nets' main point guard and stays healthy, Dinwiddie's fantasy ceiling will be capped.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 22 points on 6-of-15 shooting while adding two rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers on Monday.
The scoring numbers are back for Dinwiddie and coach Atkinson trusted him to close out the game alongside D'Angelo Russell, but the playmaking opportunities have decreased which has led to a decrease in dimes.

Spencer Dinwiddie shot just 2-of-16 from the field on his way to 13 points in a loss to the Clippers on Sunday.
He shot 8-of-12 from the line and added four rebounds, three assists and one block to the box score. He has been playing well as of late, so he gets some slack for the bad performance. Expect him to bounce back with a better, more efficient performance next time out there.
