PROJECTED 2015 SEASON STATS
1. Marc Gasol, Mem CYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics5933.4.473.7680.07.23.61.941.01.31.914.6
2015 Projections7034.4.479.7890.07.63.71.951.01.51.914.5
2015 Outlook: After finishing the 2012-13 season ranked ninth on our Player Rater, Gasol struggled through the first half of the 2013-14 season with a knee injury before turning it on after the All-Star break. His season-end totals are slightly depressed after his slow start, but Gasol averaged 15.9 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.5 blocks over his last 30 games. He won't dominate any one particular category, but he's a great building block for any fantasy team due to his across the board productivity. He'll be a great value pick in the third or fourth round in fantasy leagues this season. --BM
2. Mike Conley, Mem PGYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics7333.5.450.8151.42.96.02.941.50.22.117.2
2015 Projections7734.0.446.8231.42.86.12.901.80.22.116.0
2015 Outlook: An underrated option in a deep crop of fantasy point guards, Conley posted career highs in points (17.2), field goal percentage (45.0) and 3-pointers (1.4) in 2013-14. His efforts were good enough to rank 37th on our Player Rater, despite the fact that his steal totals dropped from 2.2 per game to 1.5 per game last season. Conley can do a little bit of everything for fantasy owners, and he has top-20 potential if he can return to his dominant steal numbers. He's rarely injured, and is an extremely safe second-tier fantasy point guard. --BM
3. Zach Randolph, Mem PFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics7934.2.467.7420.010.12.51.090.70.32.317.4
2015 Projections7133.6.466.7420.010.22.21.000.70.32.216.4
2015 Outlook: Finishing fourth in the league in double-doubles with 47, Randolph turned in another fine season with 17.4 points and 10.1 rebounds per game for the Grizzlies. Since he doesn't block shots, and is only average from an efficiency perspective, Randolph's fantasy value is heavily tied to his scoring and rebounding. Memphis will continue to rely on his presence in the paint, but the 33-year-old remains a mid-round selection due to his defensive deficiencies in the fantasy game. --BM
4. Tony Allen, Mem SG, SFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics5523.2.494.6280.23.81.71.041.60.31.69.0
2015 Projections6125.0.475.6850.14.11.51.001.60.41.59.2
2015 Outlook: Allen has made a name for himself as one of the league's toughest wing defenders, which has made him a fixture in the Grizzlies rotation at shooting guard. Though he is an elite steals artist (1.6 per game), Allen's fantasy game still leaves a lot to be desired due to his deficiencies on the offensive end. He's never been much of a 3-point shooter, and he averaged just 9.0 points per game in 23.2 minutes last season. He may be useful as a steals specialist in deeper leagues, but he'll be in a timeshare with Courtney Lee and has limited upside. --BM
5. Courtney Lee, Mem SGYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics7925.0.480.8840.92.41.51.580.80.40.99.6
2015 Projections7825.4.469.8810.92.41.61.600.90.31.09.3
2015 Outlook: After a midseason trade sent him from Boston to Memphis, Lee started 47 of 49 games for the Grizzlies, posting a modest 11.0 points, 0.9 steals and 1.0 3-pointers in 30 minutes per game. Lee's fantasy outlook would be better if he wasn't stuck in a time-share with Tony Allen at shooting guard. He'll still be useful in deeper fantasy formats for his steals and 3-point shooting, but lacks upside in standard leagues. --BM
6. Vince Carter, Mem SG, SFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics8124.4.407.8211.83.52.61.960.80.41.311.9
2015 Projections7320.8.414.8171.53.12.11.910.70.41.110.2
2015 Outlook: Although he lacks the explosiveness that characterized his early career, Carter turned in a fine season in 2013-14 with 11.9 points, 0.8 steals and 2.1 3-pointers as a role player off the bench for the Mavericks. Entering his 17th season in the league, the 37-year-old can still shoot, and he may see decent playing time in Memphis with only Tayshaun Prince and Quincy Pondexter splitting minutes behind him on the depth chart. He's mostly just a 3-point shooting specialist at this stage in his career, but could still be useful in fantasy leagues as a late-round selection even at his advanced age. --BM
7. Jon Leuer, Mem PFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics4913.1.492.7870.53.20.40.740.40.30.66.2
2015 Projections00.0.000.0000.00.00.00.000.00.00.00.0
2015 Outlook: Leuer took advantage of a Marc Gasol injury to average 11.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 0.9 3-pointers in in 22.5 minutes during the month of December, but fell back into fantasy obscurity immediately following Gasol's return to action. Leuer won't see enough minutes to warrant consideration, but should be kept in mind if injuries hit the Grizzlies frontcourt. --BM
8. Kosta Koufos, Mem PF, CYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics8016.9.495.6450.05.20.50.580.40.90.86.4
2015 Projections7519.4.526.6120.06.00.50.630.51.10.87.2
2015 Outlook: Koufos saw just 16.9 minutes off the bench behind Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph in the Grizzlies' frontcourt, but did have some modest success as a starter with 8.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks in 22 starts while Gasol was injured. He'll continue to provide depth off the bench this season, and should only be considered in deeper leagues if injuries strike. --BM
9. Beno Udrih, Mem PGYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics4115.7.438.8330.51.42.82.470.60.11.14.9
2015 Projections6718.2.436.8060.41.73.62.770.60.11.36.1
2015 Outlook: Journeyman Udrih joins the Grizzles, where he'll earn rotational minutes with Nick Calathes off the bench behind Mike Conley. Udrih is a low upside player even if Conley gets injured, and will struggle to have value in even deeper leagues. --BM
10. Tayshaun Prince, Mem SFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics7625.6.407.5670.33.11.62.900.50.30.56.0
2015 Projections7625.2.418.6710.33.21.72.430.50.30.77.1
2015 Outlook: Prince is a 12-year veteran who can still play some tough perimeter defense, but has struggled on the offensive end in recent seasons. He managed just 6.0 points and 3.1 rebounds in 25.6 minutes per game as a starter last season. With Vince Carter joining the Grizzles over the summer, Prince won't have any fantasy value even in deeper formats. --BM
