2018 Fantasy Outlook
Beverley was traded from the Rockets to the Clippers last offseason, but he wound up playing in just 11 games before undergoing surgery to repair a microfracture and meniscus injury to his right knee. Prior to the injury, Beverley was looking spry and had actually averaged 12.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.2 three-pointers, which would have put him into consideration as a draft selection in deeper leagues. He's now back to full strength and is heading into the final year of his current contract, so Beverley will have all the motivation necessary to make a strong return from injury. His status as a proven veteran, as well as his ability to both play lockdown defense and knock down three-pointers (40 percent from deep in two of last three seasons) consistently, should make him the favorite to open the season as the team's starting point guard. However, if he struggles at all or suffers any sort of setback, the Clippers could turn to rookie first-round pick Shai Gilgeous-Alexander or even Milos Teodosic to fill in. There may be a bit of a timeshare at the position, though Beverley could still push for starter's minutes if he excels early on. He'll be a bounce-back candidate that can be considered in the later rounds of deeper drafts, especially considering he's proven to be capable of contributing in a plethora of different categories when at full strength.

Finishes season strong
GLos Angeles Clippers
April 27, 2019
Beverley finished with 11 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 14 rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and one steal across 41 minutes during the Clippers' 129-110 loss to the Warriors in Game 6 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Friday.
The series naturally ended in disappointing fashion for the Clippers, but Beverley's play during the final three games was a revelation. The veteran played much bigger than his 6-foot-1 stature, double-doubling over each of the last three games against the Warriors while compiling an impressive 38 rebounds during that stretch. The strong finish was an extension of a late-season surge in production for Beverley, who scored in double digits in five of the final eight contests of the regular campaign. The 30-year-old now heads into unrestricted free agency with some impressive recent film, and his 2019-20 destination remains to be seen.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Beverley, who was traded to the Clippers in the deal that sent Chris Paul to the Rockets, will be joining a new team for the first time in what will be his sixth year in the NBA. Appropriately nicknamed “Mr. 94 Feet”, Beverley is primarily known as a hustle-hard three-and-D player rather than a traditional point guard, as evidenced by his abnormal averages of 9.5 points (38.2 percent from beyond the arc), 5.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.5 steals across 30.7 minutes per game last season. For that reason, it can be somewhat difficult to gauge Beverley’s Fantasy value since he’s somewhat of a jack-of-all-trades but master of none, which is rare from the point guard slot. At first glance, it seems like Beverley will be the starting point guard from day one, but Bill Oram of the OC Register reported that newly acquired Milos Teodosic, a 30-year-old Serbian point guard, agreed to his two-year deal with an understanding that he would be the starting point guard. That said, big questions still remain about Teodosic's defense, which could open up significant minutes for Beverley in certain matchups. Depending on how things shake out, there still remains a possibility that Beverley's assists could see a bump, though, considering he’ll no longer be sharing the rock with James Harden, who was one of the most ball-dominant guards in the NBA last season.
Houston kept its starting backcourt intact this offseason, signing Beverley to a four-year deal and extending his reign as the team’s premier perimeter defender. Beverley is a near-perfect complement to James Harden, perpetually putting out fires on one end and knocking down spot-up three-pointers on the other. While Beverley’s scoring average fell under 10 points per game for the first time in three years, he had his most efficient shooting season, converting 43.4 percent of his field goals and an even 40 percent of his three-pointers to go with 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.3 steals per game. Beverley’s value is more easily quantified in real basketball sense than in fantasy, however, and his rather pedestrian counting stats render him a fringe option in most shallower formats.
Beverley was limited to only 56 games (55 starts) last season, as a wrist injury kept him out for the final 12 games of the regular season, in addition to all of the playoffs. When he was on the court, Beverley was his usual self, an intense, hard-nosed defender tasked with guarding the opponent's best player. Offensively, Beverley was a difficult player to own, as he shot just 38 percent from the field while averaging 10.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 1.1 steals. He was a serviceable three-point threat, however, converting at a near-36 percent clip on 5.8 attempts per game. Heading into 2015-16, Beverley remains the incumbent starting point guard, but he'll face stiff competition in Ty Lawson, acquired from the Nuggets in the offseason. Lawson is undoubtedly the more effective offensive player, but Beverley is far superior defensively and holds the edge in terms of continuity. Still, it wouldn't be a shock if Lawson emerges as the starter at some point, though he ideally fits as a sparkplug off the bench, spelling Harden or Beverley as the primary ball-handler. As such, Beverley figures to see a slight reduction in minutes, and he could find himself in an even more specialized, defense-first role.
Beverley made drastic improvements in his second season in the league and with the Rockets. After stealing the starting point guard position from Jeremy Lin, Beverley saw a heavy increase in minutes from 17 per game during the 2012-13 season, to 31 during the 2013-14 season. With an increase in time on the court, he doubled his points per game averages from 5.6 per game two seasons ago, to 10.2 per game last season. To go along with the 10.2 points per game, Beverley also averaged 3.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.6 three-pointers made. He won't be heavily relied upon for scoring in the upcoming year, with James Harden, Dwight Howard, and Trevor Ariza in the fold, but Beverley will be counted on to provide the same tenacity on defense that he displayed last season, which landed him on the NBA All-Defensive Second Team. As long as he can stay healthy, considering he finished last season playing in only 56 games, he should put up similar numbers to last season, and will continue to be relied upon for his defensive game over his offensive output.
The backup to Jeremy Lin, Beverley played well enough down the stretch to see regular minutes in the playoffs (in part due to Lin's chest injury) and earn the trust of the Rockets coaches. Beverley's not much of a scorer, but he can knock down an open three and play perimeter defense. Expect 20 minutes per game and a regular role in the team's rotation.
