The 2022-2023 Detroit Pistons are one of the harder teams to project. For one, their starting lineup is a mystery outside of Cade Cunningham. 

Secondly, they have a blend of veterans they will use that don’t make a whole lot of sense (see Marvin Bailey III). 

However, let’s piece together what this Pistons team could look like for the upcoming Fantasy Basketball season.

Cade Cunningham had a productive rookie season but will need to improve on his numbers across the board to warrant his hefty draft cost. With usage that resembles the elite fantasy players, Cunningham is primed to see a jump in production but will need to fill defensive holes in his game to truly make a rankings jump. If the Pistons can surround Cunningham with reliable shooting, expect to grab him in the third round. At one time an elite prospect, Killian Hayes moves into a bench role in his third season. While Hayes may make strides, he is not a fantasy factor at this time. However, keep tabs on Hayes throughout the season, as he may fall into a 10-point, 4-rebound, 4-assist role.

 


Jaden Ivey joins the Pistons creating a two-point-guard backcourt. Ivey will share facilitation duties and be essentially interchangeable at the point guard and shooting guard positions. Ivey is quite different than his backcourt partner, Cunningham. He is a dynamic athlete and a major threat in transition and in the half-court. Alec Burks backs up Ivey and will be another scorer and floor spacer for the Pistons. Saddiq Bey – With a few tweaks and improvements like better shot selection and field goal percentage, Bey becomes a top 75 player that you can count on to be in your lineup each night. Killian Hayes is a sleeper as well. He is in the final year of his contract, was projected to have some development issues, and put together an interesting 10-4-4 run at the end of last year. As your last pick, he is worth the gamble. Cade Cunningham – be careful chasing Cunningham in the top 3 rounds of your draft (unless it is a keeper league). While a statistical jump is likely in his sophomore year, he doesn’t have the defensive game to jump into the top 35 realm.
