Jamal Murray
PG/SG, 6’4, 207lbs, 20 years old, 1 year of experience

Fairly strong overall rookie campaign, including a breakout of sorts towards the end of the season, in which he showed a lot of scoring talent both on the drive and from the perimeter. Defensively, the results are not yet there, but the effort level is, and the signs are encouraging. For a man straddling two guard spots, knowing that he would rather try and be a scorer whichever position he end up at, he could not have picked a better place to go with Jokic on hand. Working to get open alongside him, cutting down on mistakes and improving his spot-up and pull-up shooting could make Murray a pretty fearsome two-way scoring guard.

Murray has started the season very slowly, shooting 15-59 over his first five games for a lowly 25.4% percentage from the floor and a mere 8.0ppg average. However, he broke out in the last game with a 26 point night, raising his overall scoring average to 11.0 points per game, alongside 3.3 assists and only 1.3 turnovers. And while it was only one game, Emmanuel Mudiay is not providing much competition at the point guard position, thus the starting spot will continue to belong to Murray, who is in the game to score.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 4th November 2017

Murray starts as the de facto point guard with the intention to score. Unfortunately, as best evidenced by 0-16 three-point shooting over a four game stretch, this is absolutely not what happened to begin the year. It has started to come around, however – over his last four games, Murray has had scoring nights of 20, 24 and 26 points. There was also a 2 throw in there, but accept that kind of night as a risk and view the overall package as a decent fantasy value pick with upside for me.
