Jayson Tatum 2018-2019 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

The only guy on this Celtics team who will take more shots than Tatum is Irving right now. At some point the coach and the players on the team will just realized how good Tatum is and make him the 2nd or even first scoring options. For all the GMs that want to sell high now, i serious doubt how much you can get in return.

i am not sure that tatum will be the second option on Boston's offence when hayward is on top form again. And the golden state is a different case where all the value offensively is on the 3 superstars and green filling all the voids.

 

On Boston, after irving,hayward,tatum,horford there are morris,rozier,brown,smart who all have a part on boston's offence...We ll need more games to see how all of them stand.

I bought low in a dynasty last year because people thought when Hayward would be back, his numbers would be less impressive. There's enough for both guys to be good fantasy assets. That being said, Tatum is a superstar in the making, I'm not worried about his production in the slightest. He will be a top 50 player this year if he stays healthy with top 30 upside.

Not sure if this oughta go for the "bold prediction" thread but even with a crowded Celtic rotation, I can see this guy producing the kind of year to make him a 2nd round pick next year. It's only one game THIS season, but he's shown progress over and over again.

This man thread is oddly quiet. I just traded Prince for Tatum because I couldn’t deal with his TO and FG% anymore even though I know his upside.

 

thoughts on Tatum ROS?

Buy low candidate? His fg% is bad and stocks are not there. I know there's a lot mouths to feed in Boston but shouldn't this improve ros?

Tatum is great, but he is on a team that prides itself on defense (Boston is only team in NBA to hold opponents to less than 100ppg) and has too much talent surrounding him. Barring an injury, it's hard to see him emerge as an elite fantasy player. If you stuck him on the Kings or Suns he would be a beast.

Yea he def would go off on those teams but I think he can be productive on Celtics. Possibly Top 50. Hayward needs time to come back and they need Tatum scoring. I also think they know he’s the future and make efforts to get him the ball.

right up there with Otto Porter as the most disappointing player this season. And some people were even brave enough to draft him in round 3, I let him fall to me in round 5, thought I was getting a steal. SMH. Not only is he not contributing in steals or blocks, he is also killing my FG% every single week.

 

It's hard to stay positive because Kyrie is the clear alpha, well everyone expected that, but we still expected Tatum to get 3s steals blocks, he has been disappointing in all 3 categories. His only good cat is FT%, but he is not getting enough FTA to make a factor. Wasted pick

Wow just as I thought he was in a slump and making his way out.. he sank deeper.

Tatum cannot find his role in this offense right now. starting to think he might even be better off coming off the bench than starting and feel lost in the first five. He is also settling for so many isolations and pulling up for contested long 2s. Read somewhere before his childhood idol was Kobe, so he is trying to mimic his game

Yes I believe they said he was training with Kobe in the off season. Oh well can't sell low so guess gonna hold for now and hope he finds his way into the offense.

Going for that mamba mentality without the mamba skill lol. Kobe is a rare breed, very few people can take the kinds of shots he did successfully. Tatum just isn't there yet. He'd be so much better if he acted as more of a spot up shooter or cutter instead of isoing and taking contested long 2s all the time

do we still project him to get 1.x steals with a better FG% moving forward? i thought this is his year. was planning to get him and Trae Young for my Middleton and Jamal. been very disappointed with Jamal lately

Does anyone think he will improve going forward? trying to gauge his interest atm. Seems like a good buy low guy right now.

He should heat up, Tatum is one of Boston’s core guys and Kyrie’s sidekick. 

 

Some managers might be irritated though, so a good buy low. He’d be worth a bag of Doritos right now if his name wasn’t Jayson Tatum.

Over five weeks since the last comments here, looking at his box scores he still has these games of not much of anything interspersed with his better games. We've now had half a season to deduce his role and get a line on his output, is he pretty much what he is at this point you reckon? Chances of an uptick in numbers as the season progresses later on? Boston are a contending team, and he's very young so i'd like to think he'll be one of the blokes playing most of the time as the season progresses and the older ones take a small back seat. What are the considered opinions of others here?

Jayson Tatum is much too good of a player to have 1 post over 12 weeks.  The guy does everything the right way, is so smooth, and is just limited statistically by the offense he plays in and his refusal to force shots.

 

For example, Jayson Tatum has taken 20 shots or more TWICE in his NBA career.  For reference, that hack Ryan Anderson-clone, Kyle Kuzma, has exceeded 20 shots 3 times in the last 7 days.

 

Tatum has not even scratched the surface of what he is capable of, and is still 20 years old.  I feel like people are either down on him, think he's regressed, or not playing up to his expectations when he puts up his solid numbers in the flow of a game.  I think the stat hunting of guys like Harden and Westbrook are diminishing the appreciation of guys who are good players and play team basketball.
