2022 Fantasy Outlook
Davis emerged from relative obscurity as a sophomore at Wisconsin to earn consensus All-American First Team honors during the 2021-22 season on the back of 19.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals over 34.2 minutes per contest for a typically slow-paced team. The production earned him a 10th overall selection by the Wizards in the 2022 NBA Draft as a potential pairing with Bradley Beal for years to come. Davis may have an opportunity to find minutes on a Wizards club that doesn't appear ready to challenge in the East, but he didn't fare particularly well in his Summer League appearances. Over three tilts, Davis connected on just 29.6 percent of his shots and averaged 8.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists over 24.8 minutes. He struggled to create the separation needed to take advantage of his mid-range capabilities and hasn't developed a consistent enough shot from deep (33.3 percent in Summer League, 30.6 percent last year at Wisconsin) to be an asset in that respect yet. At best, the rookie figures to be a late-round flier in standard fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks
