Patrick Williams totaled 20 points (7-9 FG, 4-5 3PT, 2-2 FT) and four rebounds in the Bulls’ 118-109 loss to the Nets.
Williams scored 20.0 points in the Bulls’ loss to the Nets, posting his best scoring and shooting performance this season as he shot 77.8 percent from the floor and 80.0 percent beyond the arc. Although his scoring has improved over the last three games, Williams is underperforming in all performance categories compared to last season. His production is too sporadic to warrant serious consideration in most season-long leagues at this point. However, one possible scenario, buoyed by last season’s trends, could see Williams put together a few months of production worthy of a fantasy roster. Yet even if that’s possible, his production might be too conservative to warrant consideration outside of deeper league formats. Williams seems to be on a positive production trend over these last three games, which could indicate one of his positive production streaks. If so, he might be worth considering as a last-ditch cheap player in the daily game. He has a usage rate of 15.3 percent, a plus-minus of 1.3 and is averaging 23.6 minutes, 7.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.8 blocks per game while shooting 37.6 percent from the floor and 35.2 percent from beyond the arc.
