The Pacers exercised their team option for Myles Turner for the 2018-19 season. This was a mere formality, as Turner is developing into a superstar and the new face of the franchise in Indiana. Next summer, the Pacers will be eligible to sign Turner to an extension worth approximately $156.6 million over five years. He was already a fantasy force last season, but now with Paul George now in OKC, expect Turner to enter the upper echelon of fantasy stardom in 2017-18.

Myles Turner said he expects the Pacers to be in the playoffs next season. "A lot of people look at us as young team that’s going to rebuild, but we’re a young team that’s trying to compete," said Turner. "We’ve got a lot of guys who can come in and make an impact right away. I expect to make the playoffs this year." This is what he's supposed to say, but the reality is that it will be tough for Indiana to compete out East after losing Paul George this offseason. However, the departure of PG-13 should open up a ton of opportunity for Turner, so he should easily be able to flirt with top-20 value next season.

Myles Turner said that he wants to be an All-Star next season and expects the Pacers to make the playoffs. Amazingly, Turner, who is just 21 years old, is the longest tenured player on the Pacers. Despite having only two years of experience under his belt, Turner feels he is ready to take on a leadership role. "I want to start establishing myself as a leader in this league and on this team," he said. While the playoffs are a long shot for the Pacers, Turner will likely be a member of plenty of winning fantasy teams next season. He finished in the top-25 overall in standard leagues in 2016-17 and has a chance to return first-round value next year.

Myles Turner said he's ready to be the leader of the Pacers with Paul George expected to leave Indiana. "Without a doubt. I’ve had two years of experience and I know that’s not a whole lot, but with [what I’ve done] in that little sample size, I feel like I’m ready to take on more," Turner said. "I want to become a leader – why not start early?" Turner is coming off a top-25 finish in standard leagues with averages of 14.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.9 steals, 2.1 blocks and 0.5 3-pointers, so he should be a hot commodity in fantasy drafts as he enters his third year in the league. He shot 80.9 percent from the line last season and won't hurt you in any category, and he should be the No. 1 option on offense if the Pacers unload PG-13 before the season.

Myles Turner went 8-of-10 from the field and 4-of-6 from the stripe during Sunday's Game 4 loss to Cleveland, on his way to 20 points, nine boards, one steal and three turnovers in 33 minutes. Turner was incredibly efficient in this one, and he didn’t even miss a shot until mid-way through the third quarter, but ultimately, it was not enough for Indiana. He took a major jump during his sophomore season, compiling averages of 14.2 points, 7.2 boards, 1.3 dimes, 0.5 triples, 2.1 swats and 1.3 turnovers per contest on 50.3 percent shooting from the field and 80.7 percent from the charity stripe which was good enough for top-25 value on the year. He should just continue to get better during Year-3 and will make for a fine early-round selection on draft day.

Myles Turner scored 11 points with eight rebounds, one assist, four steals and one block in 32 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday. His perimeter defense was better than most of his teammates and coach Nate McMillan should probably try to figure out how he can get Turner more minutes. Turner was trending down on usage and rebounding rate after the break despite his minutes increasing to 32.4 per game, so he could get closer to 35 in his next one, especially with no back-to-backs.

Myles Turner blocked six shots during Wednesday's regular-season finale, adding 18 points, eight rebounds and a pair of assists in 33 minutes. The Pacers officially clinched a playoff spot on the final day of the season, as the Hawks obligingly rested most of their key guys. Tonight's blocks are a fitting reminder of Turner's potent fantasy contributions. He ranks fourth in blocks per game (2.1) while averaging 14.4 points (51.1 FGs, 80.6 FTs), 7.3 boards, 1.3 assists and 0.9 steals. He even chipped in 0.5 triples for good measure, emerging as an absolute steal for his draft-day owners.
