RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

San Antonio brought in LaMarcus Aldridge on a max deal last summer to help take the torch from the teamís trio of aging stars (Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili), but it was Leonard who stole the show and emerged as the Spursí alpha dog. Leonard saw his scoring average jump from 16.5 points to 21.2 points per game and shot the ball with efficiency that rivaled Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, hitting 50.6 percent of his attempts from the field, 44.3 percent of his attempts from three-point range and 87.4 percent of his tries from the charity stripe. Those numbers alone would make Leonard a pillar for any franchise, but his game-changing impact on the defensive end made him one of the leagueís best all-around talents. He averaged 6.8 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.0 blocks en route to claiming a second straight Defensive Player of the Year award, and for the first time in his career, a spot on the All-NBA First Team. Though he maintains a low profile off the court, Leonard has clearly arrived as a top-10 player in the NBA and should challenge for an MVP award again in 2016-17. The Spurs will have another fellow star to integrate into their system this season with Pau Gasol joining the ranks to replace the retired Duncan, but Gasolís willingness to share the rock may only enhance Leonardís stat lines. The 25-year-oldís dedication to developing his game has been evident throughout his career, as heís shown improvement as a scorer in all five seasons in the league and has turned outside shooting -- one of his weaknesses coming out of San Diego State in 2010 -- into a major strength. Only coach Gregg Popovichís tendency to rest his stars periodically over the course of the season dings Leonardís value, but the small forward is still capable of producing enough in 65 or 70 games to delight his fantasy owners.

2015-16

Leonard played in 64 games last season, hampered by a hand injury that kept him out for 10 games, along with eye problems and an ankle injury that also sidelined him. He has never played more than 66 games in a season throughout his four-year NBA career. Although nagging injuries have been a problem for Leonard, he has improved his production each season he has been in the league. Last season, he averaged 16.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.8 blocks, and 2.3 steals in 32 minutes per game. Leonard produces these numbers at a consistently efficient clip, boasting career shooting averages of 50 percent from the field, 37 percent from three, and 80 percent from the free-throw line. Being the only player on the Spurs' roster that averaged more than 30 minutes per game last season, the Defensive Player of the Year has solidified himself as the face of the future for San Antonio. His greatest value comes in nine-category leagues that factor in turnovers and percentages. Leonard's efficient play makes him an elite fantasy player despite the fact that he only has one elite categrory for fantasy production, steals. LaMarcus Aldridge will likely become the focal point of a Spurs offense that doesn't really enourage a focal point, and that could lead to everyone on the Spurs seeing fewer shots this season. The team is also so deep that they could opt to rest their players even more than usualy this season. On the rosier side of maybes, there's also a possibility that Leonard takes another step in his development on offense and has even more plays run for him this season to create a true tandem attack with Aldridge.

2014-15

Kawhi Leonard, the freshly anointed Finals MVP, is entering his fourth season in the NBA. He averaged 12.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.7 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 1.1 three-pointers in 29 minutes per game through 66 games last season. Leonard shot 52 percent from the field on 9.8 attempts and 80 percent from the line on 1.9 attempts. As Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker age, coach Gregg Popovich will begin to hand the reigns of the team over to Leonard, and Popovich has stated he will begin running offensive plays for the soft-spoken star. Leonard set career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, and field goal percentage last season, but the real story of Leonard's season is how he played after returning from a fractured hand. In 25 games after the All-Star break, Leonard went into hyperdrive, averaging 14.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.2 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers, including shooting a remarkable 53 percent from the field and 86 percent from the line. During that time frame, Leonard was a top-10 fantasy talent in nine-category leagues. Leonard's value depends a lot on your league format, as his ability to help in all nine categories suits rotisserie leagues more than head-to-head or points formats. Regardless of your format, Leonard is an emerging superstar, and even with Pop's minute restrictions, Leonard was able to turn in a diverse, fantasy-friendly stat line. If he can avoid the injuries that have limited him the past two seasons, he has the potential to be a top-10 fantasy stud.

2013-14

Like George, Leonard's hype heading into the season stems largely from his breakout performance in the postseason. Coach Gregg Popovich entrusted Leonard with 37 minutes per game in the playoffs, and Leonard responded by averaging 13.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.8 steals and 1.1 three-pointers per game, while shooting 55 percent from the field and 39 percent from downtown. These are fine numbers, but we know Popovich won't give him that many minutes in the regular season, as he likes to keep his guys rested and spread out minutes when the games don't mean as much. What Leonard brings to the table in rebounding, steals and field-goal percentage, he takes away in his complete lack of assists and his modest scoring numbers. There's a good chance he takes a big step forward this season in the counting stats, but his less than ideal playing time and deficiencies in certain categories make him a clear tier below the top guys at the position.

2012-13

In Leonard, the Spurs got exactly what they thought they were getting with the 15th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft--a starting small forward with a good motor and the ability to guard multiple positions. He might be a better real life player than a fantasy player, because the Spursí depth means that Leonard likely wonít see typical starters minutes. However, in the 24 games he started at forward last season, Leonard averaged a solid 9.4 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game, while shooting 52 percent from the field, 40 percent from three and 81 percent from the line. Assuming he sees slightly more than the 25.7 minutes per game he averaged as a starting forward last season, and assuming he takes a leap in his second year, there is a lot of potential here. One possible area for regression is Leonardís three-point shooting. He was never a 30 percent three-point shooter in college, so his 37.6 percent mark for the 2011-12 season was quite an improvement.

2011-12

Leonard averaged a double-double to go along with 1.4 steals per game last season for San Diego St. He will provide the Spurs with some much needed youth, but he will open as the backup behind Richard Jefferson. He could provide fantasy value based on his defensive skills and his ability to rebound, but donít expect a lot from him offensively.
