Terry Rozier
PG, 6’2, 190lbs, 23 years old, 2 years of experience

Supposedly kept in favour of Serge Ibaka, Rozier then faced a short leash for a year and struggled badly offensively. His physical profile and effort should make him, and already are starting to make him, into a very good point guard defender. But the offence has a lot of work to be done, both in terms of his individual scoring ability (the only shot he hits at an average level is the inefficient mid-range jump shot) and for others (where he struggles to make plays out of the pick-and-roll). With a crowded guard depth chart ahead of him that is potentially about to get more crowded, Rozier may be worth trading - if he is kept, his value will only diminish further if he is not played, and if he does not improve upon his level of play. His potential is hereby noted, though.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale remaining. Barring a trade, not about to climb up the guard rotation any time soon, so worth pursuing a trade for value unless the rotation opens up in front of him.

Celtics GM Danny Ainge has long revered Rozier, and it is starting to pay off. Playing both alongside and behind superstar acquisition Kyrie Irving, Rozier has averaged 12.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.7 steals per game, all the while costing a very low fantasy price. Get in there while it stays low.

There is still a chance that Kyrie Irving, who was expected to miss only one game, will not play tonight. He is listed as “questionable”, which in NBA parlance means a 50/50 chance of playing. However, regardless of whether he does or not, Rozier is my pick for point guard. Even though he is so small that he can only defend/play the point guard spot, and despite Irving and Marcus Smart ostensibly being ahead of him at that position in the rotation, Rozier these days does too much on the court to be ignored. Smart’s ability to defend other positions sees the pair often see the court, and while Rozier is neither a reliable half-court point guard nor a consistent outside shooter, his defensive pressure, transition game, slashing abilities and extremely good rebounding for his position necessitate that he gets court time. Rozier averages 24.8 minutes per game even when he is supposedly the third best point guard on the depth chart. He plays, and plays well, regardless of Kyrie’s injury status. And if Kyrie does not player, even better.

Despite his facial damage, Kyrie Irving will only miss one game before returning, or so it seems. Yet this does mean a one game starting stint at point guard for one of this two. [There is an outside shot of the spot going to deep bench player Shane Larkin, though it seems unlikely.] When Jayson Tatum stayed in the locker room at half time of a recent game, Smart started the second half in his place, which suggests he has the inside track on the spot. Nevertheless, whoever starts, both stand to benefit from Irving’s absence. Both are productive enough anyway – Smart is averaging 9.5 points, 5.5 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game (fantasy players can ignore his 29% shooting and ambitious shot selection), while Rozier has already featured a couple of times on this list on account of his 9.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.3 steals per game averages. Plainly, with similar output for half the price, Rozier is the better value of the two, hence why we have mentioned him before and not Smart. But tonight, due to Irving’s injury, it might be a good idea to pick both.

In the absences of Marcus Morris (before), Gordon Hayward (always) and Al Horford (now), Boston has gone even smaller, opting to play its best remaining players even when they are far smaller than those they are replacing. This benefits the tiny Rozier, who is now one of the better players; breaking out this season, averaging 9.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game, while never turning the ball over (0.6 turnovers per game). Rozier’s minutes played are down slightly from the start of the season, but only slightly; he still averages 24.2 minutes per game, and always contributes something for a low price.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
