PROJECTED 2015 SEASON STATS

2014 Statistics------------------------
2015 Projections7331.4.512.6020.08.31.00.501.12.42.015.3
2015 Outlook: The Sixers made a long-term investment when they drafted Noel in 2013, and they stuck to their guns and didn't play him at all last season. Now it's time for the payoff, as Noel is 100 percent over his torn ACL and will get all of the minutes he can handle on the super-young Sixers roster. We know that the blocks, steals and rebounds will come right away for the 20-year-old. His true upside will depend on how well he settles in as a scorer. The long-term potential could be something like 20 PPG, 11 RPG, 1.5 SPG, 3.0 BPG. And considering how many minutes and touches are available for Noel, it's not inconceivable that he could do at least 17 PPG, 9 RPG and 2.5 BPG right out of the gate. --TC
2. Henry Sims, Phi CYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics4619.0.474.7440.05.21.11.270.60.40.97.6
2015 Projections7327.8.497.7570.07.51.61.230.90.61.312.1
2015 Outlook: Sims joined the long list of players who seemingly appeared out of nowhere in 76ers box scores last season. In 25 starts, he averaged 12.1 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 1.8 APG and 49.1 FG percentage. He didn't chip in much in the way of steals or blocks, but double-double threats always have value in fantasy. It's entirely possible he could start next to Nerlens Noel in the frontcourt and be a viable contributor this season. --TC
3. Tony Wroten*, Phi PG, SGYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics7224.5.427.6410.63.23.01.061.10.22.813.0
2015 Projections7027.1.424.6640.63.43.41.101.20.33.114.0
2015 Outlook: A successful fantasy baller's best friend is opportunity, and Wroten was proof of that as a rookie. His out-of-control style (2.8 TO/game) would have earned him a spot on most team's benches, but the Sixers were hell-bent on losing games, so they let him ball. The same franchise mindset is in place this season, so Wroten should get all the play he can handle. However, he is kind of a middling combo guard who does a little of everything but no one thing exceptionally well. He also is a poor free throw shooter (64.1 FT percentage), which carries a big impact, because he loves to take it to the rack and averaged 4.9 FTA after the break. Don't overvalue him this season. --TC

2015 Projections7018.5.460.5500.06.10.80.620.60.41.36.5
2015 Outlook: After rarely seeing the court in his rookie season, Robinson didn't fare much better as a sophomore with just 12.5 minutes off the bench for the Blazers. The fact that he averaged 4.8 points and 4.4 rebounds despite seeing only 12.5 minutes per game appears to bode well for his future fantasy prospects, but he still has a long way to go before we can trust him in fantasy leagues. Keep him on your radar as a potential pickup candidate for points and rebounds if injuries hit the Blazers' frontcourt. --BM
7. Isaiah Canaan*, Phi PGYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS

2015 Projections2211.5.000.0000.00.00.00.000.00.00.00.0
2015 Outlook: Canaan probably wouldn't be on the fantasy radar if it weren't for the Rockets' thin backcourt after Jeremy Lin's departure, but as it stands, he's the frontrunner for backup point guard minutes behind Patrick Beverly. He's someone to keep an eye on in deeper leagues in case Beverly struggles with injuries again this season. --BM
8. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute*, Phi SF, PFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics6415.7.451.6870.12.30.60.900.50.20.63.5
2015 Projections5918.4.444.6400.13.20.70.870.60.30.84.8
2015 Outlook: Mbah a Moute's best attribute is his unique name. In practical terms, he is a back-of-the-rotation player who doesn't offer any statistical upside. However, most of the 76ers roster also fits that description or is barely out of college. That means Mbah a Moute could have some brief stretches of relevance in deep leagues. --TC

2014 Statistics7722.6.460.7120.93.20.91.220.70.20.86.0
2015 Projections------------------------
2015 Outlook: Thompson has "sleeper" written all over him, because he's a relative unknown who has a great chance to start and shoot a lot of 3s. Thompson set a Georgetown record with a career 44.0 3-point percentage but went undrafted in 2012. Last season, as a rookie with the Sixers, Thompson led all rookies with a 40.1 3-point percentage. The 76ers remain extremely young, which means Thompson has an excellent chance to start at shooting guard or small forward and get off a lot of 3-point shots. Thompson might be a specialist (i.e., don't expect much other than 3s, points, a good FG percentage and some boards), but everyone needs those stats, too. --TC

14. Joel Embiid*, Phi CYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics------------------------
2015 Projections------------------------
2015 Outlook: The buzz surrounding Embiid rocketed up all season long until he underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot. The procedure is supposed to cost him four to six months, which means he could be healthy sometime between the start of the season and early 2015. The Sixers stashed Nerlens Noel all last season without playing him, but Embiid could debut this season. Unless you have a deep bench, he'll be a tough stash in redraft leagues, but a healthy Embiid will be a nightly double-double threat who will block a ton of shots as a rookie. He seemingly has unlimited long-term upside -- if he can get and stay healthy -- and will be a prime target in dynasty formats. --TC
