Insight: McDaniels told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Wednesday that it would "mean a lot" to start for the 76ers.

Description: The Sports Network's projections have rookie K.J. McDaniels as the 76ers second leading scorer in 2014-2015.
Insight: McDaniels was quite the scorer at Clemson, averaging 17.1 PPG while also chipping in 7.1 RPG, 2.8 BPG and 1.1 SPG. The rookie has already showcased his blocking ability through the preseason. Coach Brett Brown is a defensive coach, so he will likely start McDaniels for defense, which will allow him to contribute in other areas in fantasy.
