Player Outlook

If he could ever get 25 minutes per night on a consistent basis, James Johnson could be a Fantasy monster. He averaged 7.9 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.8 combined blocks and steals per game last season, and he did it in just 19.6 minutes per game. However, his offensive limitations make him best suited for a reserve role, which is likely the one he will fill for the Raptors yet again this season. He has value in category-based leagues, but probably shouldn't be targeted before the later rounds on Draft Day.
