2019 Fantasy Outlook
Carter's rookie campaign was cut short by injury, with the seventh overall pick appearing in just 44 games. He started each one, however, seeing 25.2 minutes per contest. While his season averages don't jump off the page, a deeper look reveals why he's considered a promising young center. Carter racked up seven double-doubles, three 20-point games, nine performances with double-digit boards, and seven outings with three or more blocks. He demonstrated his full skillset against the Nuggets in late October, dropping 25 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two threes and a combined six steals/blocks in 38 minutes. The Bulls will be looking for Carter to showcase those skills even more in 2019-20, as Robin Lopez has moved on to Milwaukee, making Carter the clear-cut option at center. It seems likely Carter will see 30-plus minutes per contest, and he averaged 13.5 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and a combined 2.6 blocks/steals when seeing minutes in the 30s last year. But fantasy owners should remain patient with Carter, as he'll be entering just his age 20 season in 2019-20. Read Past Outlooks

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Carter comes in at 6-foot-10 and 251 pounds with a nearly a 7-foot-5 wingspan, providing some size at center for the Bulls alongside Lauri Markkanen. Though Carter lacks elite athleticism, his versatility gives him plenty of upside. The rookie can finish in the pick-and-roll, catch-and-shoot threes, work in the post and make good passes. He was also an impressive rebounder at Duke, posting 13.5 boards per 40 minutes. Defensively, Carter's size should help him hold his own in the post, while his quick feet and long arms could help him make switches on the perimeter. He looked more than comfortable during five summer league tilts, averaging 14.6 points, 9.4 rebounds, 3.4 combined blocks/steals and 1.6 assists while shooting 55.1 percent from the field and going 3-of-7 from beyond the arc. Carter also contributed to the overall success of the team, ending up with a plus-31.8 net rating. It’s unclear if he'll be the team’s starting center from Day 1, but it would be surprising if he doesn't at least split time at the position with Robin Lopez.
