2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bridges is coming off a healthy and productive rookie season where he appeared in all 82 games for the Suns while also making 56 starts. He ended with averages of 8.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.6 steals across 29.5 minutes per game. He shot 33.5 percent from behind the arc on 3.8 attempts per game and 43 percent from the floor overall. Entering his second NBA season, Bridges is looking at what will likely be a role off the bench for Phoenix, as star shooting guard Devin Booker and Kelly Oubre are expected to be locked in as starters on the wing to open the campaign. Beyond that, it doesn't appear Bridges will be facing much competition for playing time, especially with fellow wing Josh Jackson being traded to Memphis this offseason, so Bridges should still see plenty of minutes as a key reserve for the rebuilding Suns. Additionally, Booker has played 54 and 64 games in each of the last two seasons respectively due to injury, and Bridges would likely see a significant boost in usage whenever the star guard is unable to play.

Reaches new career high in scoring
FPhoenix Suns
January 18, 2020
Bridges contributed 26 points (10-13 FG, 6-8 3Pt), three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 40 minutes during Saturday's 123-119 win over the Celtics.
ANALYSIS
Bridges finished with career highs in scoring and three-pointers while amassing at least two steals and two blocks for the third time in the last 20 games. The 40 minutes were also Bridges' most of the season, and offers hope that the second-year swingman may continue to receive steady playing time even once Kelly Oubre (concussion) returns. Bridges has been a force defensively all season and has seemingly recovered from his frigid start to the campaign from distance. Dating back to Thanksgiving Day, Bridges has connected on 42 percent of his 2.0 three-point attempts per game.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Bridges is coming off a three-year collegiate career at Villanova, where he won two National Championships and earned First-team All-Big East and Big East Tournament MVP honors as a junior. He averaged 17.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks across 32.1 minutes in his final campaign, showing off his two-way potential at the next level. Bridges was also a great spot up shooter and knocked down 51.4 percent of his field goal attempts and 43.5 percent of his three-pointers. While that typically would mean big minutes on a rebuilding team like the Suns, Bridges still could struggle to find playing time early on with guys like Devin Booker, T.J. Warren and Josh Jackson all present in the wing rotation. Bridges appears to be the better shooter between himself and Jackson, but Jackson had an impressive final stretch of his rookie campaign last year and appears in line for a slight uptick in his role. As a result, Bridges could have trouble reaching or surpassing the 20-minute mark most nights, which should keep him off the radar in most Fantasy formats.
