   2017 NBA Manifesto

Caris LeVert
SG/SF, 6’7, 203lbs, 22 years old, 1 year of experience

Good solid start to his career with efficient finishing, streaky yet projectable three-point shooting, a pretty good idea of what shots to take, and defensive activity. A long armed deflector/contester, LeVert needs some strength and experience, but could be a good ‘libero’ in future years.

Player Plan: Three years of rookie scale salary remaining. Very cheap - two cheap years in which to receive plenty of minutes, then make a decision on an extension.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 31st October 2017

As above with Dinwiddie, the Brooklyn guards will get theirs tonight (D’Angelo Russell and Devin Booker fans to also take note). LeVert, as a significant playmaking and ball handling presence on his team, should also benefit.

LeVert averages 11.0 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game on the season, and he’s doing so while shooting terribly. When more of the shots starts going in, his scoring output will spike, and he will become even better of value.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 25th October 2017

LeVert is shooting inefficiently from outside to start the year, but he is nevertheless getting the shots up, and they will start going in soon. Alongside his 12.3 points per game, he is also contributing 3.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 0.7 blocks per game from the wing, all of which stuff the stats from a fantasy point of view for a price below that of most other starters at his position.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 7th December 2017

After struggling to score as a starter, LeVert was moved to the bench, whereupon his play improved. His season averages of 10.6 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists indicate an across-the-board impact on the court, and from a fantasy point of view, his scoring inefficiency from all areas are ignored altogether, while his high turnover numbers are marginalised.

Over the last seven games, LeVert has averaged 26.8 fantasy points, an increase in his production that coincides with a move to becoming the reserve point guard. This move has increased his assist totals, which increases his overall production and thus his fantasy value. He is therefore worthy of your consideration as a mid-range pick.
