2019 Fantasy Outlook
Grant Williams, the 22nd pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, has "Glue Guy" written all over him. No one questions Williams' team-first attitude. The concern is his size. At 6-foot-7, can Williams legitimately play power forward in the Association? His 7.5 rebounds per game during his last Vol season certainly look appealing to a Boston squad that's struggled on the boards. With the departure of both Al Horford and Aron Baynes, big-man minutes are certainly available, even with the addition of Enes Kanter. Boston did retain Daniel Theis, but he's had injury issues during both his prior Celtics seasons. Long-term, Boston would love for Williams to evolve into an effective inside presence, guarding bigs and cleaning the glass, while allowing the more dynamic Jayson Tatum or Gordon Hayward to work outside the key. Expecting that to occur during Williams' rookie season is probably asking too much, though. Expect Boston to bring their young Williams bigs (Grant and Robert) along slowly while they learn the subtleties of coach Brad Stevens' system. A slower approach would also grant Williams time to improve his catch-and-shoot three-pointer, something he showed potential with during college, draining 33 percent of his treys his final collegiate season. Playing time will be inconsistent for Williams, but the opportunity to shine does exist. Read Past Outlooks

Modest production in loss

February 12, 2020
Williams tallied seven points (1-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four rebounds in nine minutes during Tuesday's 116-105 loss to Houston.
ANALYSIS
Williams' playing time was back to just nine minutes Tuesday as the Celtics were able to field their go-to lineup for the first time in a while. Williams has the ability to defend multiple positions, which gives him added responsibilities whenever injury strikes. He is fantasy relevant in only deeper formats, although his dynasty value is quietly improving. On the positive, over the past dozen games he's made 10 of 18 three point attempts. That's in stark contrast to early in the year, when Williams couldn't buy a bucket from behind the arc.
