Key Fantasy Contributors

We've broken down player data for key Indiana Pacers 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.

Myles Turner (PF/C)

All signs point to this being Turner's team, it just comes down to how well he handles being the number one option on offense. He has a super friendly fantasy game, he just needs to work on increasing his rebounding.

Victor Oladipo (PG/SG)

People got burnt by Oladipo last season, but don't let that fool you into letting him slide too far in your draft. Expect his scoring and assists to go up compared to last season now that he's not playing alongside the most ball-dominant guard in the league (Westbrook).

Thaddeus Young (SF/PF)

There are concerns that Thad may be traded at some point this season, but so long as he's playing 30 minutes a game you can count on his numbers being pretty similar to last season.
