Zion Williamson

Year Two Breakouts: Where Is Zion's Ceiling?

The fantasy potential for Zion Williamson is undeniable. In his final 15 games before the season shut down in March, last year’s No. 1 overall pick put up 25.1 ppg, 6.4 rpg and 2.3 apg, shooting 58.0 percent from the field.

The problem is that the downside to Zion’s fantasy value is right there in front of us, as that same stretch saw him put up just 0.9 spg, 0.5 bpg and 0.1 3s.

Therein lies the conundrum with Williamson when it comes to fantasy, and on the latest episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, Steve Alexander joins me to discuss what to expect from last year's No. 1 overall pick in year two.

We also look at other potential second-year breakout players, ranging from Ja Morant to Cam Reddish to Coby White to PJ Washington.
