Chicago Bulls Fantasy Basketball Rankings & Projections for 2017/18


Let's not beat around the bush, the Chicago Bulls are a mess, but situations like these present an opportunity for somebody to step up and become the steal of the draft. Guessing who that will be on this roster will take some work and a lot of luck. Will rookie Lauri Markkanen start? Logic says yes, but there's nothing logical about this organization.

We look at the Chicago Bulls player movement, projections, and fantasy basketball rankings, including a focus on potentially key fantasy players, such as Kris Dunn, Justin Holiday, and Robin Lopez.

Key Fantasy Players

We've broken down player data for key Chicago Bulls fantasy basketball players including projections, projections per 36 minutes, last season's averages, and last season's averages when playing between 20-30 minutes as well as between 30-40 minutes.

Kris Dunn (PG/SG)

Chicago potentially has the weakest point guard rotation in the league, so if Kris can show signs of being half-decent he's a good chance at getting 28-30 minutes a night.

Justin Holiday (SG/SF)

Justin is worth looking at in deeper leagues because Chicago needs somebody to step-up, and it could very well be Justin (as seen by the 6 games he played last season with more than 30 minutes on the court). He's worth the last pick in your draft to see how the situation plays out.

Robin Lopez (C)

Lopez is a solid contributor who won't hurt your percentages. If Chicago starts as horribly as most expect then they don't have a reason to continue starting Robin, so if he starts the season strong it's worth trying to sell him while he still has value.
