McDermott played 81 games for the Bulls last season and averaged 9.4 points, 2.4 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 0.2 steals and 1.4 three-pointers in 23 minutes per game. He shot 45.2 percent from the field, 42.5 percent from behind the arc and 85.7 percent from the charity stripe.
McDermott saw increased playing time over his rookie campaign and more than tripled his points per game average. McDermott still has a ways to go before he becomes a major fantasy asset, but he does provide value with his ability to contribute three-pointers and also make them at a high percentage.
Doug McDermott tallied 15 points (6-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and three assists over 37 minutes in Thursday's 103-100 victory over the Rockets.
McDermott benefited from a wealth of playing time once Derrick Rose (elbow) exited after only 12 minutes, and recorded his ninth double-digit scoring effort of March. The Creighton product had cooled off in recent games, having posted single-digit point totals in four of the previous five contests. If Rose is forced to miss any additional games during the season's final days, McDermott could certainly be a worthy addition in any fantasy format.
Doug McDermott was limited to one point (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and three rebounds over 20 minutes in Monday's 102-100 loss to the Hawks.
Following a string of three consecutive performances of 20-plus points, McDermott seems to have bottomed out. He's only reached double figures in two of his last six games since that time, with two one-point efforts mixed in. It appears the return to health of Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose can be attributed to McDermott's lack of explosive scoring, which has also corresponded with a downturn in minutes. He's probably a safe drop candidate in most formats, but should remain on your radar in DFS formats on nights where the Chicago Bulls are resting one or more of their regular starters.
Doug McDermott scored 25 points (8-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, and one assist over 29 minutes in Thursday's win over the Nets.
McDermott has gone over the 20-point threshold in the last three games, and seems to be infringing on Mike Dunleavy's role as the starting small forward. Though it seems coach Fred Hoiberg is content to deploy the second-year man in a reserve role, McDermott seems like a fair bet to flirt with 30 minutes most nights while he continues to shoot efficiently. He's knocked down 23-of-37 shots from the field (62.1%) and 12-of-19 (63.1%) from three-point range over that three-game stretch.
Doug McDermott could barely miss while scoring a team-high 29 points (9-11 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT) in Monday's 109-107 win against the Raptors.
McDermott came out and started the game 7-of-7 from the field with 24 of his 29 points in the field half. He didn't do much after, but it was still an incredible performance from the second year forward. McDermott has firmly supplanted himself as the Chicago Bulls ' irrational confidence guy off the bench, going off every couple of weeks. Unfortunately these games are few and far between and McDermott doesn't contribute much outside of scoring.
