Damian Lillard 2019-2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Didn't see a thread for Dame Dolla so I thought I'd create one. Seems to be the consensus 7th pick (and where I ended up drafting him). One of the most durable superstars and has not been the victim of the dreaded load management regime yet. What are we expecting from him this year? 27/7/5 with 1 stl and 45/90 shooting seems possible and is in line with what he's been doing over the past few years. Thoughts? Anybody take Dame over Embiid as they're usually in that 7th/8th range?

He's locked in at 7 for me over Embiid. Him and Jokic are close imo as well. I probably would go Jokic but i'd definitely heavily consider Dame at 6. He's just incredible.

Every year I hope I get 7-8 to nab Dame, always consistent and never ever misses games. I think we’ll see numbers like last year tbh

Think I am ranking him at 6 ahead of Jokic instead of reaching for a point guard in round two. Set your draft up to take someone who falls in round 3 or 4 like Lowry or Conley to match up with him. There's more value in his ft boost and pts than a lot of what Jokic does.

Got Conley in the 4th and D'Angelo in the 5th for a nice 3-guard lineup haha

Has anyone won their league with Dame? What did your team look like?

 

Im sure a lot of people have won with Lillard as the first pick because he plays during fantasy playoffs.

 

Had him 2 years ago, 13th pick out of 14 teams, finished 5th seed with a 102-74-4 record but went on to win it all. First 6 players I drafted were Lillard, DMC, Dragic, Horford, Nerlens (yikes), Aaron Gordon (flop). Was able to trade DMC for KAT literally a few days before DMC went down so that helped fix my bad draft. Maxed my stream spots during the playoffs and luckily edged my opponent. I remember Quinn Cook was amazing that year down the stretch.

Last season with a core of Dame, Horford, Siakam and BroLo.

Lost Dipo to injury

Lost OPJ and Roco to shutdown

Shoutout to Payton, Kanter, KCP, Jakarr, Harkless and Caboclo

Came super close last year in an 18 team, points league. Barely lost in championship and Dame was my anchor. Also had Aldridge, MitchRob, Sexton, Middleton.

Kinda learned, atleast from my league, that it's about getting guys that are gonna play, get minutes, and produce. That's Dame.

Who should we be pairing Dame with in the 2nd round?

In roto leagues you can pick a big man to complement him. Vucevic would be a nice pairing with him. In H2H maybe someone like Jrue or kemba? Or if you want to be strong in assists, pair with Trae. You could go with the wing route too and pair him with like butler or someone like that

1) Booker if you want another high end scorer capable of 26-28 ppg 

2) Kemba or Trae to lock down assists

3) To make up for a lack of steals from Dame, Butler gets you an elite steals guy and a reliable wing

4) A non-punt ft% big (don’t waste Dame’s ft value) - Vuc and Ayton both fit the bill

5) The Wild Card - Luka...could be the best of the bunch if he can get his ft% out of punt territory...likely punting FG% with Dame and Luka though

His reliability is refreshing

It really is. He's consistent and he doesn't sit games.

Even when he has an awful game... he puts up a monster line. Absolute savage. Mr. Reliable. Borderline top 5 guy if you value you consistency (as you should)
