2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Cristiano Felicio in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a four-year, $32 million contract with the Bulls in July of 2017.
College/International Summary

Before making his way to the NBA, Feliciano spent six seasons in his native Brazil. As a 17-year-old, he joined Minas Tenis Clube as part of the Novo Basquete Brasil. Following the 2012 season, he moved to Sacramento to attend the CCSE Prep Academy. He had hoped to gain eligibility to attend University of Oregon in 2013-14, but was deemed ineligible. He returned to Brazil and played two seasons with Flamengo in the Brazilian National League. The team won the FIBO Americas League and the FIBA International Cup in 2014. Feliciano also represented Brazil in FIBA competition starting in 2010. In the 2011 FIBA U19 World Championship, the 6-10 forward averaged 9.5 points and 7.1 rebounds. He made himself available for the 2014 draft.

Doubles-doubles off bench
CWindy City Bulls   G League (Bulls)
January 23, 2020
Felicio finished with 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Bulls' 117-110 win over the Timberwolves.
ANALYSIS
With both Wendell Carter (ankle) and Daniel Gafford (thumb) sidelined, Felicio has cracked the rotation in six consecutive games and seems to be gradually gaining the trust of coach Jim Boylen. Felicio has logged double-digit minutes in four straight contests and even started in the second half Wednesday, replacing Luke Kornet. It wouldn't be surprising if Felicio drew the start over Kornet on Friday against the Kings, though expect a fairly equitable timeshare to remain in place between the two in any case.

Past Season Summaries
2015

A native of Brazil, Felicio earned a contract with the Bulls after he showed well in the 2015 NBA Summer League. The 23-year-old went on to appear in 31 games as a rookie, averaging 3.4 points and 3.3 rebounds over 10.4 minutes a night. Though his role was limited, Felicio showed real promise, shooting 55.6 percent from the field and sparkling in a four-game stint in the G League with averages of 14.3 points and 5.5 rebounds despite playing modest minutes there, too. Felicio turned in his first NBA game with double-digit rebounds Mar. 17 when he collected 10 against Brooklyn, but his finest performances came near the end of the season, when Felicio got some extra run. He scored 16 points along with five rebounds Apr. 9 against Cleveland, then dropped 16 again with six boards two days later against New Orleans before finishing the season with a nine-rebound game against the Sixers.

2016

After impressing in the NBA Summer League for the second consecutive year, Felicio got into 66 games for the Bulls in 2016-17 -- more than twice as many as his rookie year. His minutes ticked up noticeably to 15.8 per night, and he improved his production accordingly, averaging 4.8 points and 4.7 rebounds. After shooting impressively as a rookie, he actually increased his efficiency a couple ticks as a sophomore, making 57.9 percent of his shots. Felicio posted the first three double-doubles of his NBA career, including a career-high 12 boards alongside 12 points, two assists and a steal Dec. 30 against Indiana. The towering Brazilian's season high in scoring was 13 points to accompany five rebounds and a block against the Knicks on Jan. 12. He also made his NBA postseason debut, appearing in all six games of the Bulls' first-round loss to the Celtics and gathering 11 rebounds in Game 3 of that series.

2017

Felicio spent time in both the NBA and the G League in his third season in the Bulls' organization. With Chicago, the Brazilian appeared in 55 games, making 16 starts and averaging 17.8 minutes per contest. He set new career highs with 5.6 points and 1.0 assists per game. Felicio also averaged 4.2 rebounds per game in his reserve role. The 25-year-old had his highest-scoring game at the NBA level on Mar. 19, when he dropped 17 points against the Knicks on 8-of-10 shooting from the field. Felicio grabbed a season-high 16 rebounds in a win over Orlando on Mar. 30. He had 10 or more rebounds on four occasions and totaled three double-doubles for the year. In his time with the G League's Windy City Bulls, Felicio looked the part of a future star. Across eight games, he averaged 17.4 points and 11.0 rebounds in 34.8 minutes per night. Felicio was also an imposing defensive presence in the G League, averaging 2.6 blocks and 1.5 steals per game.

2018

Felicio played his fourth season with Chicago in 2018-19, once again serving as a reserve option. He played in 60 games, all off the bench, averaging 12.4 minutes of playing time per night. The 27-year-old didn't shoot often, with only 3.0 field goal attempts per game, though he shot an effective 53.1 percent from the field. As one might expect from a player that stands 6-foot-10, Felicio did most of his work inside. Just four of his 179 field-goal attempts came from 3-point range. Overall, the Brazilian big man averaged 4.0 points and 3.6 rebounds per game. He averaged a double-double on on a per-36 minute basis, with 11.6 points and 10.5 rebounds. Felicio did not have any standard double-doubles on the season, though he came close with 10 points and eight rebounds Mar. 18 versus the Suns. His highest-scoring effort of the season occurred two days later, when Felicio produced 15 points in a win over Washington. He grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds in a loss to Sacramento on Mar. 17.

2015
Felicio spent last season bouncing between the NBA and the G-League. While he was impressive with the Windy City Bulls (17.4 PPG, 11.0 RPG, 2.6 BLK, 1.5 STL), that failed to translate to the parent club. He saw 17.8 minutes per game across 55 games -- the bulk of his time coming after the All-Star break -- and averaged 5.6 points and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 59.1 percent from the field. Felicio’s role is expected to shrink this year given the addition of Wendell Carter Jr. to the mix, plus the continued presence of Robin Lopez and Bobby Portis. As a result, Felicio can be ignored in the vast majority of Fantasy formats.
Felicio played in a career-high 66 games during the 2016-17 campaign, but was still stuck as a reserve center and averaged just 15.8 minutes per game. That translated to 4.8 points and 4.7 rebounds, while shooting 57.9 percent from the floor. The big man also had a brutal effort from the free-throw line, connecting on just 64.5 percent of his attempts from the charity stripe. While he surely needs improvement across the board, Felicio is still young and the Bulls felt comfortable committing to him with a four-year $32 million contract extension in the offseason. While Robin Lopez is still in line to start at center, the fact that the Bulls are in rebuild mode following the trade of Jimmy Butler could mean they dole out more minutes to Felicio at the center position. Look for his playing time to climb a bit, though that will likely come with only minor games across the box score.
Felicio appeared in only five of the Bulls' first 50 games, but moved into a minor rotational role after the All-Star break. It's difficult to take anything away from Felicio's per-game averages -- 3.4 points and 3.3 rebounds in 10.3 minutes -- but he posted 11.8 points and 11.4 rebounds per 36 minutes, offering a glimpse of his long-term potential. The Brazilian big man is still a ways away from reaching that potential, of course, but he'll step into a much larger role this season following the summer departures of Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol. The Bulls brought in Robin Lopez to start at center, but Felicio could slot in as Lopez's top backup and may also see minutes at power forward in certain lineups. Felicio is a strong screen-setter with good touch around the rim, but he's unlikely to hold a large enough role offensively to generate significant fantasy value.
Felicio comes over from Brazil and provides the Bulls with another big body off the bench as he is 6-10, 275 pounds. He played in six games during the Las Vegas Summer League and averaged 3.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 0.3 assists, 0.2 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 13 minutes per game. Although Felicio shot an excellent 56 percent from the field, he only shot 40 percent from the free-throw line. Felicio may have potential, but it is going to be very hard for him to see much playing time behind Joakim Noah, Pau Gasol, Taj Gibson, Nikola Mirotic, and fellow rookie Bobby Portis.
