Player Outlook

Gordon Hayward's 2014-15 season looks an awful lot like the one he put together the season before, except he ironed out all the flaws this time around. Despite playing two fewer minutes per game, Hayward increased his scoring to 19.3 per game, as he rebounded from a down shooting season to post a 44.5/36.4/81.2 shooting line. One downside to his season was a dip in his assist rate, from 5.2 to 4.1 per game, as the Jazz had him working off the ball just a little bit more; that's the tradeoff for the bump in efficiency. Still, add it all together and Hayward finished 31st in the league in Fantasy points per game, while missing just six total. Hayward is the undisputed No. 1 option in Utah on offense, and should have a similar season ahead of him, so look his way in the third round on Draft Day in all formats.
