2022 Fantasy Outlook
Dosunmu - the No. 38 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft - compiled a better-than-expected rookie campaign. Benefitting the rookie was that Chicago dealt with a myriad of backcourt injuries, including Zach LaVine playing 67 games, Lonzo Ball playing 35 and Alex Caruso playing 41. Those absences allowed Dosunmu to step into an expanded role more often than anticipated. He started 40 of his 77 appearances and averaged 8.8 points, 3.3 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.2 combined steals-plus-blocks in 27.4 minutes. Dosunmu's efficiency also impressed. The rookie slashed 52/38/68, resulting in a 59.6 percent true-shooting percentage. He didn't create a ton of those opportunities on his own - 69 percent of his shots were assisted - but that's to be expected given the number of relatively high-usage players on the Bulls like Ball, LaVine, DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic. Free throw attempts were one of the primary points of concern for Dosunmu who shot just 1.3 freebies per 36 minutes. That wasn't for a lack of effort, however, as he took 41 percent of his shots at the rim - good for the 93rd percentile among players labeled as combo guards. Overall, he ranked 211th in per-game fantasy production. In theory, Dosunmu should improve on that rank, but his path to playing time is complicated when the Bulls are healthy. That said, Dosunmu has earned his way into the starting five to open the season, taking over as the team's starting point guard to open the season with Lonzo Ball set to miss a few months due to a knee injury. Dosunmu's expected fantasy value should jump as a result, though he's still a late-round flier, given that Caruso, Goran Dragic and Coby White are bound to see minutes as well. Read Past Outlooks

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Dosunmu was selected by the Bulls with the 38th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. The 6-foot-5, 200-pound guard was an electric scorer for the Illini throughout his two seasons. Dosunmu averaged 20.1 points while also adding 6.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game last year with Illinois. However, he doesn't project as an every-game player for the Bulls since the team is relatively deep at guard.
