2018 Fantasy Outlook
Due to a partially torn left quadriceps tendon, Brogdon was limited to 48 games last season. Prior to the injury, which occured Feb. 1, he averaged 13.5 points (48.6 percent), 3.4 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.3 threes and nearly a steal across 31.0 minutes. It’s unclear if he'll start at shooting guard in 2018-19, but Brogdon’s ability to function as a combo guard -- and even a small forward in small-ball lineups -- should enable him to garner over 25 minutes per game for a third consecutive season. If he averages closer to 30 minutes, he has top-100 upside, and that’s without factoring in natural progression. Brogdon's average athleticism limits him, somewhat, as a point guard, but he's already a top-shelf three-point shooter (39.5% career) and is both a good decision-maker (1.5 TPG career) and defender, though it doesn't always translate into elite steals numbers.

Aiming to return for second round

Brogdon (foot) remains without a firm timetable, but the internal belief is that he'll be back for the Eastern Conference Semifinals, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports.
This assumes, of course, that the top-seeded Bucks make it out of Round 1, but they'll be heavily favored to advanced against whichever team they ultimately face. Prior to the injury, Brogdon was enjoying his best season as a pro, averaging 15.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists, and while he'll end up missing the final two months of the season, he had already met the statistical minimums to join the exclusive 50-40-90 club. Brogdon admitted that he'd been dealing with plantar fasciitis for several weeks prior to the tear, but he acknowledged that in the long-term, the absence may be to his benefit. "It would get sore and get irritated probably a few weeks before the injury happened and then it basically just tore, which is the best thing for it," Brogdon said. "It sort of heals and cures the plantar fasciitis." While that may be the most optimistic view, the Bucks haven't slowed down without Brogdon, and the third-year guard is confident that he'll be ready to contribute when fully healthy. "This [injury] is not even half as bad as that one," Brogdon said, referencing the quad injury that cost him 30 games last season. "The injury is minor; I'll come back and be full speed. The team is better this year, so they can hold it down while I'm gone. I just want to get back in time so when we play a tough opponent I can help in the playoffs."

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Brogdon – winner of the 2016-17 Rookie of the Year award – played a crucial role in the Bucks’ success last season. A 6-foot-5 combo guard out of Virginia, Brogdon flashed potential as a three-and-D threat with good court vision, posting 10.2 points, 4.2 assists, 2.8 boards and 1.1 steals across 26.4 minutes per game while drilling 40.4 percent of his looks from beyond the arc. While it was assumed Brogdon would likely play a non-Fantasy-relevant reserve role behind Matthew Dellavedova and Khris Middleton, he ended up usurping Dellavedova’s role as the starter for a solid chunk of the year, drawing 28 starts. Even when he wasn’t a starter, Brogdon’s ability to handle both guard slots resulted in him seeing at least 30 minutes a game on more than a few occasions – 21 to be exact (of which he started only 13). Heading into the 2017-18 season, Brogdon should see many of the same opportunities he saw last year considering the Bucks haven’t made any significant changes to their backcourt. Plus, with Jabari Parker out until at least February 2018, coach Jason Kidd may opt to slide Khris Middleton and Tony Snell up to small forward on numerous occasions, opening up the shooting guard slot for Brogdon to fill in. That, combined with assumed offseason development, makes Brogdon an intriguing mid-to-late round option in many Fantasy formats, as well as a constant DFS threat.
