2014 Outlook: Even if you never believed the hype that came with Turner being the No. 2 overall pick in 2010, that doesn't mean you shouldn't be paying close attention to the fourth-year pro this season. That's because the Sixers have gone from having a deep and often redundant roster to one of the thinnest in the league. In other words, the Sixers will have no choice but to lean heavily on Turner, who can pile up good numbers in scoring, rebounds and assists. He likely will sport an ugly FG percentage and shoddy FT percentage, but Turner should be a quality points-league option with plenty of upside in roto leagues.
2014 Outlook: You can debate the merits of letting a young point guard learn the ropes as a reserve before taking control of an offense, but that simply won't be the case for MCW. The 21-year-old rookie will jump right into all of the minutes he can handle this season. The downside of that is that the Sixers don't have a lot of obvious finishers for his passes and he is a horrible shooter (39.3 FG% for Syracuse last season). He will have every opportunity to step up and make a push for rookie of the year, but the odds appear stacked against him really pulling through as a fantasy stud in Year 1. Expect a very poor FG%, shaky scoring and lots of turnovers.
2014 Outlook: The Sixers are so young now, they may be asking the 32-year-old J-Rich for his AARP card. If he can get back from his knee surgery, he could still chuck up some 3s to help out deep-league rosters. However, there were late-summer reports that he might not be fully recovered until the 2013-14 season is over. At this stage of his career, there's no reason to draft Richardson.
