Player Outlook

Greg Monroe's career peak so far came three years ago, when he averaged 16.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists and seemed to be emerging as the kind of big man you want to run an offense through. However, the future in Detroit ever since has been Andre Drummond, and it seemed like the last two seasons for Monroe were just spent playing out the string waiting for free agency, though he still produced enough to be a very valuable Fantasy option. Monroe hit free agency and quickly signed with the up-and-coming Bucks -- a young, defensive-oriented team that desperately needed an offensive centerpiece. Guess what Monroe's role will be. He should see a big increase in usage and the Bucks' combination of athletes better suited for off-ball work should create a beautiful blend with his talents. Monroe won't give you the kind of block totals you want from your center, but he'll do a little bit of everything else, and should be a consistent double-double threat, so target him after the first few rounds go by on Draft Day.
