2020 Fantasy Outlook
After three successful seasons with Milwaukee, Brogdon joined Indiana and immediately took on a more voluminous role. In his first season with the team, he averaged 16.5 points, 7.1 assists and 4.9 boards -- all career highs. Playing a career-high 30.9 minutes per night, Brogdon's increased usage led to declines in his pristine shooting, as the former 50/40/90 wing finished the year with 43.8 shooting from the field and 32.6 percent from three. Victor Oladipo was out for most of the season, and the team dealt with injuries throughout the lineup, leading to Brogdon's increased usage as both a scoring option and a facilitator. Oladipo is likely to be back in the lineup when the new season tips off, Domantis Sabonis emerged as a legitimate All-Star and T.J. Warren cooked on offense to end the season. As a result, Brogdon could take a step back in the usage department, though a return to past shooting numbers could make up for that role decline with an increase in efficiency. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

Malcolm Brogdon spent five years (2011-16) at the University of Virginia, playing in a combined total of 136 games for the Cavaliers. As a freshman, Brogdon got the opportunity to play meaningful minutes for a UVA team that boasted lots of depth. He played in 28 games, started once, and averaged 6.7 points and almost 3 rebounds per contest with the Hoos. After missing the 2012-13 season while recovering from surgery to repair a broken foot, Brogdon returned with a vengeance in 2013-14 and averaged 12.7 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, nearly doubling his averages from his previous season. Brogdon, who finished the season as the only ACC player to score in double figures in every league game, was named to the All-ACC First Team by the ACC Coaches and the All-ACC Second Team by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. In 2014-15, he averaged a career-high 14 points per game and started all 34 contests he played in, finding himself named to the 2014-15 All-American Second Team in by the Associated Press (AP), the U.S. Basketball Writers Association, the National Basketball Coaches Association and the USA Today All-American Second Team. As a senior, Brogdon became a superstar. He averaged a new career high 18.4 points and 4.1 rebounds per game for the Cavaliers -- and became the first Wahoo since Ralph Sampson to be named the ACC Player of the Year. That season, Brogdon was named to the All-American First Team by a number of news outlets, including the Associated Press, the National Association of Basketball Coaches, and the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.

Past Season Summaries
2019

In his first season with the Pacers, Brogdon appeared in 54 regular season games and posted career-highs in per-game scoring (16.5 PPG), rebounds (4.9 RPG) and assists (7.1 APG). Brogdon hit 43.8 percent of his field goals, including 32.6 percent of his three-pointers. He remained one of the league's top free throw shooters, drilling 89.2 percent of his 3.4 attempts per game. In his first game as a Pacer on Oct. 23 versus Detroit, Brogdon posted a 22-point, 11-assist double-double. Three nights later, he went for 30 points, 10 assists and two rebounds against the Cavaliers. Over the first 20 games of the season, Brogdon averaged 19.1 points and 7.5 assists per contest. Against Boston on Dec. 11, Brogdon made and attempted a career-high 15 free throws. In an Aug. 22 playoff game against Miami, Brogdon set new career-highs in both points (34) and assists (14), while also adding seven rebounds. During the Pacers' four-game series against the Heat, Brogdon averaged 21.5 points, 10.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.0 steal. At season's end, Brogdon finished 18th in total assists (381), 11th in assists per game (7.1), and seventh in free throw percentage (89.3).

2018

Brogdon excelled in his third year with the Milwaukee Bucks, improving his statistical production in most categories. Brogdon averaged a career-high 15.6 points per contest in 64 games, all starts, during the 2018-19 season. He shot almost 51 percent from the floor, including 43 percent from three-point range, both career highs. The Virginia product was exceptional from the foul line, too, leading the NBA in free-throw percentage at 92.8 percent. Brogdon scored a season-high 25 points in an overtime win at Sacramento on Feb. 27. He also averaged 4.5 rebounds per tilt, though failed to record a double-double during the regular season. Brogdon managed 3.2 assists per game, which was fifth on the squad. However, Brogdon missed the final month of the regular season, a span of 18 games, due to a right foot plantar fascia tear. The injury also forced Brogdon to miss all but one game of the Bucks' first two playoff series. Brogdon was healthy for the Eastern Conference Finals, though, posting perhaps his best game of the season in a Game 5 loss to the Toronto Raptors. Brogdon tallied 18 points, 11 rebounds and six assists in the 105-99 defeat. Brogdon's Bucks would lose in six games to the Raptors. Assuming the Bucks extend Brogdon a qualifying offer, the guard enters the off-season as a restricted free agent.

2017

Coming off a Rookie of the Year performance, Malcolm Brogdon continued to improve in his age-25 season. He averaged 13 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 29.9 minutes in 48 games played. He also shot 48.5 percent from the field and 38.5 percent on three-point attempts. He started the season off strong with double-digit scoring performances in his first five games and in 11 of his first 13. During that 13-game span, the 6-foot-5 guard averaged 14.8 points and four assists on 48.6 percent shooting. He recorded his only double-double of the season during that span with a season-high 10 assists. Brogdon finished the year with 37 double-digit scoring games, including a career-high 32 points on Jan. 22. Unfortunately, the Virginia product lost over two months of the season due to a torn quad. Brogdon returned near the end of the season and averaged 8.7 points on 43.6 percent shooting across seven postseason appearances.

2016

Following four seasons at Virginia, Brogdon was selected with the 36th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. He proceeded to win Rookie of the Year with the Bucks, averaging 10.2 points, 4.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals as the Bucks won 42 games. Brogdon also shot 45.7 percent from the field, 40.4 percent from three on 2.6 attempts and 86.5 percent from the charity stripe. He set single-game career highs of 22 points, 12 assists, 10 rebounds, four steals and one block. Brogdon also started 28 games, averaging 12.5 points, 4.7 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals across 30.6 minutes in those contests. Plus, he accumulated two double-doubles and one triple-double. One of his best overall performances of the season occurred during a 25-point win over the Suns on Feb. 4. Brogdon came off the bench, played 26 minutes and posted 13 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight assists (one turnover), five rebounds, three steals and one block. Brogdon's best stretch of the season occurred Mar. 18 through Mar. 29. Across the seven games, he averaged 13.7 points on 10.3 shots, plus 5.9 assists (1.1 turnovers), 3.7 rebounds and 1.0 steal in 31.3 minutes. The Bucks made the playoffs but lost to the Raptors across six games during the Eastern Conference First Round. During the series, Brogdon averaged 9.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 30.5 minutes per game.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
Brogdon is coming off an impressive third season, where he joined the elite 50/40/90 club. He posted career highs in points (15.6), rebounds (4.5), threes (1.6) and, unsurprisingly, true shooting percentage (61.4). While Brogdon is a relatively low-usage player, he's shown potential as top offensive option. In 64 appearances last season, he posted 12 games with at least 20 points and 13 games with more than four dimes. In joining the Pacers, Brogdon will need to showcase that ability more often, as Indiana will be without Victor Oladipo (knee) until around December. Whether Brogdon can transition into a bigger role is one question, but whether he can stay healthy is another. Through his first three seasons, Brogdon is averaging just 62.3 games played. We know that he'll be able to provide value as an efficient all-around shooter, but can he take on a bigger role and stay on the court?
Due to a partially torn left quadriceps tendon, Brogdon was limited to 48 games last season. Prior to the injury, which occured Feb. 1, he averaged 13.5 points (48.6 percent), 3.4 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.3 threes and nearly a steal across 31.0 minutes. It’s unclear if he'll start at shooting guard in 2018-19, but Brogdon’s ability to function as a combo guard -- and even a small forward in small-ball lineups -- should enable him to garner over 25 minutes per game for a third consecutive season. If he averages closer to 30 minutes, he has top-100 upside, and that’s without factoring in natural progression. Brogdon's average athleticism limits him, somewhat, as a point guard, but he's already a top-shelf three-point shooter (39.5% career) and is both a good decision-maker (1.5 TPG career) and defender, though it doesn't always translate into elite steals numbers.
Brogdon – winner of the 2016-17 Rookie of the Year award – played a crucial role in the Bucks’ success last season. A 6-foot-5 combo guard out of Virginia, Brogdon flashed potential as a three-and-D threat with good court vision, posting 10.2 points, 4.2 assists, 2.8 boards and 1.1 steals across 26.4 minutes per game while drilling 40.4 percent of his looks from beyond the arc. While it was assumed Brogdon would likely play a non-Fantasy-relevant reserve role behind Matthew Dellavedova and Khris Middleton, he ended up usurping Dellavedova’s role as the starter for a solid chunk of the year, drawing 28 starts. Even when he wasn’t a starter, Brogdon’s ability to handle both guard slots resulted in him seeing at least 30 minutes a game on more than a few occasions – 21 to be exact (of which he started only 13). Heading into the 2017-18 season, Brogdon should see many of the same opportunities he saw last year considering the Bucks haven’t made any significant changes to their backcourt. Plus, with Jabari Parker out until at least February 2018, coach Jason Kidd may opt to slide Khris Middleton and Tony Snell up to small forward on numerous occasions, opening up the shooting guard slot for Brogdon to fill in. That, combined with assumed offseason development, makes Brogdon an intriguing mid-to-late round option in many Fantasy formats, as well as a constant DFS threat.
