RANKPLAYER
#1
Luka Doncic (DAL, PG,SG) ADP: 1.6 AGE: 22.6
75 GP 0.478 FG% 0.742 FT% 3.0 3PM 28.3 PTS 8.2 REB 8.8 AST 1.0 STL 0.5 BLK 4.4 TO
Luka is approaching walking triple-double status, his shooting %s are no longer a problem, and his defensive numbers are becoming respectable. He's the #1 dynasty option across (almost) all formats.
#2
Nikola Jokic (DEN, PF,C) ADP: 1.8 AGE: 26.6
77 GP 0.565 FG% 0.868 FT% 1.3 3PM 27.8 PTS 11.0 REB 7.9 AST 1.3 STL 0.7 BLK 3.1 TO
The clear 1.01 pick in redraft leagues, and he's basically on par with Luka for who I'd take first in a dynasty start-up draft. In the games without Murray last season we saw Jokic be more aggressive in looking for his own shot, so keep an eye on his assist numbers to start the season.
#3
Karl-Anthony Towns (MIN, C) ADP: 4.6 AGE: 25.9
72 GP 0.486 FG% 0.855 FT% 2.4 3PM 24.8 PTS 10.6 REB 4.5 AST 0.8 STL 1.3 BLK 3.2 TO
KAT was dealing with a lot off the court last season, and while his blocks dried up in the last few months he still managed to finish as a top-10 player. Feel like he has somehow become underrated, and is very much somebody I'd be happy to take 3rd in a start-up dynasty draft.
#4
Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL, PF,C) ADP: 3.5 AGE: 26.8
74 GP 0.572 FG% 0.684 FT% 1.1 3PM 28.0 PTS 11.0 REB 5.9 AST 1.2 STL 1.2 BLK 3.4 TO
His FT% has almost dipped down to his FG%, which is a huge concern, but the rest of his game has gone to another level. He's the best player in fantasy basketball in punt FT% builds.
#5
3
Jayson Tatum (BOS, SF,PF) ADP: 6.5 AGE: 23.6
76 GP 0.467 FG% 0.864 FT% 3.0 3PM 27.1 PTS 7.4 REB 4.6 AST 1.2 STL 0.5 BLK 2.7 TO
Everything is pointing to Tatum upping his counting stats a notch this season (strong end to the season, Boston not signing a ball-dominant PG).
#6
Trae Young (ATL, PG) ADP: 7.5 AGE: 23.0
78 GP 0.441 FG% 0.889 FT% 2.4 3PM 24.7 PTS 3.8 REB 9.5 AST 0.8 STL 0.2 BLK 4.0 TO
Atlanta went through some teething problems at the beginning of last season as they adjusted to being a team with real playoff aspirations. After a strong playoff run, the team should well and truly be settled into playing with everything running through Trae.
#7
2
Joel Embiid (PHI, PF,C) ADP: 9.2 AGE: 27.5
65 GP 0.498 FG% 0.822 FT% 1.1 3PM 26.2 PTS 10.1 REB 2.7 AST 1.0 STL 1.3 BLK 3.0 TO
It looks like Philly's plan for Embiid moving forward is to continue giving him a quality backup so he doesn't have to play 32+ minutes a night (Howard last season, and Drummond this season), which I think is a great move. He's still a top-tier talent playing 30-31 minutes a night, the key is limiting the risk of injury.
#8
1
James Harden (BRO, PG,SG) ADP: 10.2 AGE: 32.1
75 GP 0.469 FG% 0.869 FT% 2.7 3PM 23.8 PTS 8.0 REB 10.5 AST 1.2 STL 0.8 BLK 3.9 TO
He may not be the 35 point scorer from his Houston days, but he's making up for it with his improved assist numbers and increased shooting efficiency from the field.
#9
2
Bam Adebayo (MIA, PF,C) ADP: 13.3 AGE: 24.2
76 GP 0.568 FG% 0.799 FT% 0.0 3PM 18.7 PTS 8.9 REB 4.1 AST 1.2 STL 1.0 BLK 2.6 TO
Bam has become an elite 6-category player. He won't hit 3s, and his FT% is still inconsistent (and still improving), but his output is perfect for almost all dynasty builds, and he'll be a top-5 center for years to come. I'm expecting a dip in assists this season with the addition of Lowry, but it's not enough to change my opinion of him in dynasty.
#10
Stephen Curry (GSW, PG,SG) ADP: 9.6 AGE: 33.5
73 GP 0.476 FG% 0.916 FT% 5.0 3PM 30.7 PTS 5.5 REB 5.8 AST 1.2 STL 0.1 BLK 3.4 TO
Steph is a hard one to rank in dynasty leagues. He's a top-5 player in re-draft leagues, and he has a game that'll age well, but he's already 33 and you have to think he's only got a few more seasons of elite play left in him.
#11
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (OKL, PG,SG) ADP: 20.2 AGE: 23.2
70 GP 0.510 FG% 0.815 FT% 2.0 3PM 24.0 PTS 4.9 REB 6.0 AST 0.8 STL 0.7 BLK 3.0 TO
Can OKC really afford to limit Shai's on-court play for another season and run the risk of frustrating him into asking for a trade?
#12
1
Bradley Beal (WAS, SG,SF) ADP: 15.8 AGE: 28.3
73 GP 0.467 FG% 0.878 FT% 2.6 3PM 32.0 PTS 4.7 REB 5.8 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 3.1 TO
Beal becomes option 1, 2, and 3 in Washington this season and we should expect a decent jump in his counting stats with Westbrook moved to LA. Talking heads are always going to throw Beal into trade talks because he's an easy target. Try and ignore it until you see somebody reputable like Woj talking about it.
#13
7
LaMelo Ball (CHA, PG,SG) ADP: 14.9 AGE: 20.1
73 GP 0.445 FG% 0.774 FT% 2.1 3PM 18.6 PTS 6.7 REB 7.0 AST 1.8 STL 0.5 BLK 3.2 TO
Has a fantasy-friendly game and is in the perfect low-pressure, fast-paced scenario in Charlotte. His role should increase even more next season.
#14
Zion Williamson (NOP, PF) ADP: 11.0 AGE: 21.2
72 GP 0.613 FG% 0.701 FT% 0.2 3PM 28.6 PTS 7.6 REB 4.3 AST 1.0 STL 0.7 BLK 2.8 TO
Showed signs of being a 6-cat player towards the end of last season and we should continue seeing Zion handle the ball more with Lonzo off the roster. We saw an increase in his FT% (64% to 69.8%), so signs are pointing to him becoming a 72-75% free-throw shooter at some point in his career.
#15
3
Anthony Davis (LAL, PF,C) ADP: 18.2 AGE: 28.6
69 GP 0.499 FG% 0.771 FT% 0.9 3PM 23.1 PTS 8.8 REB 2.0 AST 1.3 STL 2.0 BLK 2.0 TO
Davis has had a season to forget and finish outside of the top-30 in re-draft leagues. When healthy he's still an elite player, but with how stacked LA has become I'm worried we'll be seeing him managed through the season as it's championship or bust for the Lakers.
#16
Damian Lillard (POR, PG) ADP: 11.7 AGE: 31.2
76 GP 0.452 FG% 0.930 FT% 4.0 3PM 27.9 PTS 4.1 REB 7.3 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 2.9 TO
A top-10 guy in re-draft leagues and there's no reason why he can't do the same this season.
#17
1
Domantas Sabonis (IND, PF,C) ADP: 15.5 AGE: 25.4
72 GP 0.534 FG% 0.736 FT% 0.8 3PM 19.9 PTS 11.6 REB 6.4 AST 1.2 STL 0.5 BLK 3.3 TO
Just needs to work on his FT% to be a top-20 player in re-draft leagues. A great punt-blocks big man option.
#18
3
Zach LaVine (CHI, SG,SF) ADP: 22.1 AGE: 26.6
72 GP 0.491 FG% 0.843 FT% 3.3 3PM 26.0 PTS 4.6 REB 4.1 AST 0.8 STL 0.5 BLK 3.3 TO
The addition of Lonzo and DeRozan means a dip in usage for LaVine, but he's still Chicago's best player. Expect a small dip in production, but don't do anything crazy and trade him for the sake of making a trade.
#19
(NEW)
Cade Cunningham (DET, PG,SG) ADP: 30.3 AGE: 20.0
74 GP 0.426 FG% 0.841 FT% 1.9 3PM 16.4 PTS 4.8 REB 3.7 AST 1.2 STL 0.6 BLK 3.5 TO
Has the potential to be a good fantasy contributor in his rookie season and has an all-around fantasy game. Fits well playing alongside Hayes in Detroit.
#20
4
Paul George (LAC, SF,PF) ADP: 24.7 AGE: 31.4
74 GP 0.461 FG% 0.882 FT% 3.5 3PM 25.1 PTS 6.8 REB 5.4 AST 1.1 STL 0.4 BLK 3.4 TO
The Paul George value-metre runs like clockwork. It dips due to a poor/average playoff performance and kicks back up during the regular season. Expect his output to jump with Kawhi out for most of the regular season.
#21
Kevin Durant (BRO, SF,PF) ADP: 26.5 AGE: 33.0
68 GP 0.529 FG% 0.882 FT% 2.3 3PM 26.3 PTS 7.1 REB 5.0 AST 0.7 STL 1.3 BLK 3.4 TO
Had as good of a season that you could have hoped for after returning from a serious Achilles injuries, and should continue to out-perform his ADP as people correctly factor in his injury history when drafting him.
#22
5
Fred VanVleet (TOR, PG,SG) ADP: 25.1 AGE: 27.6
70 GP 0.402 FG% 0.892 FT% 3.4 3PM 20.2 PTS 4.0 REB 6.0 AST 1.6 STL 0.7 BLK 1.7 TO
No Lowry and Dragic's future in Toronto only being short-term points to VanVleet having a great fantasy season in Toronto. Be prepared for him to tank your FG%, but the traditional PG categories are all there.
#23
12
Michael Porter Jr. (DEN, SF,PF) ADP: 29.9 AGE: 23.2
67 GP 0.516 FG% 0.816 FT% 3.0 3PM 20.8 PTS 7.9 REB 1.2 AST 0.7 STL 0.9 BLK 1.4 TO
Seems to have matured a little this season and has taken the responsibility of being Denver's second-best player with Murray injured with both hands. If he can improve on his ability to set up teammates, then it'll open up his offensive game even more.
#24
5
Donovan Mitchell (UTA, PG,SG) ADP: 27.7 AGE: 25.1
72 GP 0.441 FG% 0.834 FT% 3.4 3PM 26.6 PTS 4.4 REB 5.5 AST 1.0 STL 0.3 BLK 2.8 TO
If you watch Mitchell play you'd expect him to be a consistent top-20 guy, and I think he does have the potential to get there one day, but he needs to either improve his FG% or up his steal rate to do it.
#25
2
Jaylen Brown (BOS, SG,SF) ADP: 24.0 AGE: 24.9
72 GP 0.483 FG% 0.768 FT% 2.9 3PM 24.9 PTS 5.9 REB 3.4 AST 1.2 STL 0.6 BLK 2.7 TO
His usage increased a little more than expected last season, and there's nothing to suggest that he can't continue it. Just needs to keep improving his FT%.
#26
1
Deandre Ayton (PHX, C) ADP: 27.5 AGE: 23.2
76 GP 0.617 FG% 0.772 FT% 0.2 3PM 15.6 PTS 10.9 REB 1.5 AST 0.6 STL 1.2 BLK 1.6 TO
We saw Ayton being used more on the offensive end during the playoffs, and people are starting to finally realize that he's not as bad on the defensive end as some will tell you. I can see him approaching top-30 value in redraft leagues real soon.
#27
10
Brandon Ingram (NOP, SF,PF) ADP: 30.3 AGE: 24.1
73 GP 0.464 FG% 0.869 FT% 2.3 3PM 23.9 PTS 4.9 REB 4.9 AST 0.7 STL 0.6 BLK 2.5 TO
Has proven that he's more than capable of continuing to stuff the stat sheet alongside a healthy Zion.
#28
6
Kyrie Irving (BRO, PG,SG) ADP: 30.4 AGE: 29.5
55 GP 0.492 FG% 0.903 FT% 2.7 3PM 23.8 PTS 3.9 REB 5.4 AST 1.3 STL 0.5 BLK 2.6 TO
Rosters always look better when Kyrie is on them, but it's hard to trust him to stay motivated enough to play basketball for an entire season.
#29
10
Devin Booker (PHX, SG,SF) ADP: 20.5 AGE: 24.9
76 GP 0.484 FG% 0.865 FT% 1.9 3PM 26.1 PTS 4.3 REB 4.4 AST 0.8 STL 0.2 BLK 3.2 TO
People forget how young Booker is. If you can ride out another season of top-50 level production he should be primed to to take the reigns once Chris Paul shows signs of aging.
#30
2
Jimmy Butler (MIA, SF,PF) ADP: 38.2 AGE: 32.0
72 GP 0.492 FG% 0.864 FT% 0.5 3PM 20.5 PTS 5.4 REB 4.3 AST 1.7 STL 0.3 BLK 2.0 TO
His usage will take a small dip with the addition of Lowry, but his fantasy output will still be up there with some of the best (top 25) heading into next season.
#31
9
Nikola Vucevic (CHI, C) ADP: 33.4 AGE: 30.9
76 GP 0.472 FG% 0.860 FT% 2.0 3PM 20.7 PTS 11.1 REB 2.9 AST 0.9 STL 0.8 BLK 1.8 TO
The Vucevic experiment backfired for Chicago last season in terms of making the playoffs, but with a full off-season under their belt, things should be running smoothly heading into the 21-22 season. Expect Nikola to continue putting up 20/10 numbers, even with the addition of DeMar and Lonzo.
#32
12
Jaren Jackson Jr. (MEM, PF,C) ADP: 38.7 AGE: 22.0
70 GP 0.468 FG% 0.811 FT% 2.0 3PM 17.8 PTS 6.9 REB 1.4 AST 1.1 STL 1.8 BLK 1.9 TO
His value is as low as I think it'll get. Target him in trades during the off-season if you can, because the talent to be a top-30 guy is there if he can ever put it together.
#33
3
Myles Turner (IND, PF,C) ADP: 39.2 AGE: 25.5
72 GP 0.478 FG% 0.759 FT% 1.5 3PM 12.4 PTS 6.4 REB 1.0 AST 0.9 STL 3.0 BLK 1.4 TO
He's not a strong rebounder, and playing next to Sabonis isn't going to help that, but what he does provide is elite shot-blocking, the ability to hit 3s, and not hurt you too much from the free-throw line.
#34
11
Rudy Gobert (UTA, C) ADP: 37.3 AGE: 29.3
76 GP 0.671 FG% 0.622 FT% 0.0 3PM 14.4 PTS 13.5 REB 1.3 AST 0.6 STL 2.7 BLK 1.7 TO
Sometimes players have the reputation of being such a good defender, that teams shoot less around them, and that's what's happening to Gobert. He's still an elite shot-blocker when given the chance to contest shots.
#35
7
Tyrese Haliburton (SAC, PG,SG) ADP: 50.0 AGE: 21.6
72 GP 0.472 FG% 0.884 FT% 2.5 3PM 15.8 PTS 3.2 REB 5.6 AST 1.4 STL 0.5 BLK 1.7 TO
Transitioned to the NBA as well as you could have hoped, and looks primed to improve again next season.
#36
2
De'Aaron Fox (SAC, PG) ADP: 25.9 AGE: 23.8
73 GP 0.475 FG% 0.722 FT% 1.8 3PM 26.0 PTS 3.5 REB 7.2 AST 1.5 STL 0.5 BLK 3.0 TO
Seems to be undervalued by a lot of people, but his FT% needs to improve this season after regressing last season.
#37
9
OG Anunoby (TOR, SF,PF) ADP: 43.8 AGE: 24.2
70 GP 0.473 FG% 0.789 FT% 2.7 3PM 17.2 PTS 5.6 REB 2.2 AST 1.5 STL 0.7 BLK 1.7 TO
Has the potential to be a top-50 staple as he continues to develop his game.
#38
1
Ja Morant (MEM, PG) ADP: 35.0 AGE: 22.1
73 GP 0.466 FG% 0.769 FT% 1.4 3PM 21.2 PTS 4.5 REB 7.9 AST 1.0 STL 0.3 BLK 3.3 TO
Had a big second-season regression. Has a lot of holes in his game to consider him a top fantasy option right now, but has the potential to be great in a few years. Expect the bounce-back to start this season.
#39
2
Anthony Edwards (MIN, SG,SF) ADP: 37.2 AGE: 20.1
77 GP 0.436 FG% 0.789 FT% 2.6 3PM 21.5 PTS 4.9 REB 3.5 AST 1.2 STL 0.5 BLK 2.4 TO
Ended the season on a tear averaging 27 points on 52.8% shooting from the field over his last 8 games, but we can't ignore the first 64 games. If he can up his FG% to something respectable like 45% then he'll make a big jump from his rookie season where he finished 114th based on per-game averages.
#40
4
Clint Capela (ATL, C) ADP: 44.9 AGE: 27.4
75 GP 0.586 FG% 0.582 FT% 0.0 3PM 14.9 PTS 14.9 REB 0.8 AST 0.7 STL 2.1 BLK 1.3 TO
Has quickly reminded all of us what he's capable of doing on the basketball court, and should be close to finishing the season as the league's top rebounder.
#41
15
Julius Randle (NYK, PF,C) ADP: 28.8 AGE: 26.8
77 GP 0.463 FG% 0.816 FT% 2.2 3PM 22.5 PTS 9.8 REB 4.8 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 3.3 TO
New York has made some solid additions to their roster in Walker and Fournier (I normally put a player's last name in Google to make sure I've spelled it correctly, but I'm not doing that in this instance), so I'm not expecting a repeat in production from last season, but it won't be too far off it.
#42
13
Richaun Holmes (SAC, PF,C) ADP: 63.2 AGE: 28.0
72 GP 0.637 FG% 0.785 FT% 0.0 3PM 15.0 PTS 8.8 REB 1.8 AST 0.6 STL 1.7 BLK 1.3 TO
Holmes continues being underrated in certain circles and he'll continue to out-perform his ADP for another season.
#43
14
Jusuf Nurkic (POR, C) ADP: 57.1 AGE: 27.1
70 GP 0.512 FG% 0.714 FT% 0.4 3PM 14.8 PTS 10.1 REB 3.0 AST 1.1 STL 1.5 BLK 2.6 TO
His value is as low as I think it'll get for a while. Try and target him in a trade before people remember how good he can be.
#44
(NEW)
Evan Mobley (CLE, C) ADP: 66.3 AGE: 20.3
73 GP 0.475 FG% 0.706 FT% 0.6 3PM 12.1 PTS 7.5 REB 1.9 AST 0.7 STL 1.7 BLK 2.0 TO
Is already a very fluid offensive player and is more than capable of anchoring a team on the defensive end. It'll be a little crowded at the PF spot in Cleveland while they work out what they're doing with Love and Nance, but he'll have a strong fantasy game from the get-go.
#45
12
Khris Middleton (MIL, SF,PF) ADP: 43.5 AGE: 30.1
75 GP 0.474 FG% 0.885 FT% 2.2 3PM 20.2 PTS 6.0 REB 5.4 AST 1.1 STL 0.1 BLK 2.6 TO
Continues to out-perform his ADP and continues to be underrated by mainstream fantasy players. Has a game that should age well.
#46
3
Kristaps Porzingis (DAL, PF,C) ADP: 55.4 AGE: 26.2
69 GP 0.451 FG% 0.856 FT% 2.4 3PM 21.0 PTS 9.3 REB 1.7 AST 0.5 STL 1.5 BLK 1.2 TO
His value is at an all-time low right now, but let's remember that he finished the season ranked 31st in per-game value. Dallas now has a new coach, so let's wait and see how Kidd uses him, because he's not playing as bad as he did during the playoffs again.
#47
16
Lonzo Ball (CHI, PG,SG) ADP: 53.2 AGE: 23.9
70 GP 0.420 FG% 0.777 FT% 3.0 3PM 14.7 PTS 4.9 REB 5.9 AST 1.5 STL 0.6 BLK 2.3 TO
The move to Chicago matches his skillset as somebody who can run the break, play defense, and not worry about looking for his own shot inside the 3-point line, but there's a lot of ball-handling in the starting roster with LaVine, DeRozan, and Vucevic all capable passers.
#48
4
Dejounte Murray (SAS, PG,SG) ADP: 45.1 AGE: 25.0
74 GP 0.455 FG% 0.799 FT% 0.9 3PM 16.4 PTS 7.4 REB 6.8 AST 1.6 STL 0.1 BLK 1.8 TO
A lot of usage has opened up with the departure of DeRozan, Mills, and Gay. Expect a bump in scoring and assists.
#49
10
Ben Simmons (PHI, PG) ADP: 40.3 AGE: 25.2
68 GP 0.554 FG% 0.612 FT% 0.1 3PM 14.3 PTS 7.2 REB 7.0 AST 1.6 STL 0.6 BLK 3.0 TO
His game hasn't changed since entering the league, and there's nothing to suggest that anything will change this season. At this stage, he is what he is, and that's a guy who can give you great out-of-position stats (FG%, REB) for a PG-eligible player. Best suited in points leagues and punt FT% builds.
#50
19
John Collins (ATL, PF,C) ADP: 39.4 AGE: 24.0
75 GP 0.575 FG% 0.834 FT% 1.3 3PM 17.4 PTS 7.3 REB 1.2 AST 0.5 STL 1.0 BLK 1.3 TO
Re-signing with the Hawks wasn't the best result for his short-term fantasy output, but he'll continue to put up top-50 numbers that are propped up because of his shooting efficiency from the field and the free-throw line. We know what he's capable of if he's more of a focus on the offensive end, but that won't happen unless he finds himself on another roster.
#51
2
Darius Garland (CLE, PG) ADP: 55.3 AGE: 21.7
70 GP 0.457 FG% 0.872 FT% 2.2 3PM 19.9 PTS 2.5 REB 6.4 AST 1.3 STL 0.1 BLK 3.1 TO
Improved his output across the board last season as he establishes himself as PG 1A in Cleveland.
#52
25
Derrick White (SAS, PG,SG) ADP: 77.9 AGE: 27.2
69 GP 0.440 FG% 0.843 FT% 2.6 3PM 19.1 PTS 3.4 REB 4.4 AST 1.0 STL 1.0 BLK 1.5 TO
I've been down on White in the past, but I think this is the season where we finally see him getting close to meeting the expectations people have for him and he should lead the team in scoring with the Spurs losing DeRozan, Gay, and Mills in the off-season.
#53
(NEW)
Jalen Green (HOU, SG) ADP: 62.0 AGE: 19.6
73 GP 0.435 FG% 0.789 FT% 2.4 3PM 17.4 PTS 3.6 REB 2.4 AST 1.2 STL 0.2 BLK 2.7 TO
A great athlete whose offensive game is well suited to the NBA. We saw what Kevin Porter Jr did with high usage in Houston, and Green is the better player.
#54
5
Collin Sexton (CLE, PG,SG) ADP: 61.7 AGE: 22.7
73 GP 0.474 FG% 0.820 FT% 1.6 3PM 23.9 PTS 3.2 REB 4.2 AST 1.1 STL 0.2 BLK 2.8 TO
At this point, we need to stop looking at Sexton as a PG. He's a score-first combo-guard, who still has the potential to improve his assist numbers. He continues to get underrated in fantasy drafts.
#55

Jalen Suggs (ORL, PG,SG) ADP: 74.3 AGE: 20.3
73 GP 0.441 FG% 0.753 FT% 1.4 3PM 15.3 PTS 4.3 REB 5.4 AST 1.4 STL 0.3 BLK 2.9 TO
A better scorer than his college stats suggest and is capable of racking up steals, but Orlando is deep at the PG/SG spot. In terms of talent, he's definitely a top-4 guy in the draft class.

Jrue Holiday (MIL, PG,SG) ADP: 61.8 AGE: 31.3
72 GP 0.500 FG% 0.781 FT% 1.9 3PM 17.5 PTS 4.5 REB 6.0 AST 1.6 STL 0.6 BLK 2.2 TO
He's back to playing at an elite level and has minimal competition at either of the guard spots in Milwaukee.
#57

LeBron James (LAL, PG,SG,SF) ADP: 53.7 AGE: 36.7
74 GP 0.514 FG% 0.702 FT% 2.2 3PM 24.3 PTS 7.4 REB 7.3 AST 1.1 STL 0.6 BLK 3.6 TO
Never doubt LeBron James, but he'll be 37 next season, and his focus should be on championships, and not the regular season.
#58
23
Robert Williams (BOS, C) ADP: 78.1 AGE: 23.9
68 GP 0.695 FG% 0.636 FT% 0.0 3PM 9.5 PTS 8.0 REB 2.1 AST 0.9 STL 2.0 BLK 1.2 TO
Every time you think Williams is about to step up his production, he doesn't. Will he ever average 25+ minutes a game? I'm a little hesitant to rank him too high, but if he's starting the season playing 25-27 minutes a night then expect a bump.
#59

CJ McCollum (POR, PG,SG) ADP: 70.0 AGE: 30.0
72 GP 0.457 FG% 0.822 FT% 3.5 3PM 22.7 PTS 3.8 REB 4.6 AST 0.9 STL 0.4 BLK 1.4 TO
In the past, he has been streaky in terms of output and FG%, but he was somewhat consistent last season when he was on the court.
#60
10
Gordon Hayward (CHA, SG,SF) ADP: 75.1 AGE: 31.5
68 GP 0.473 FG% 0.858 FT% 1.9 3PM 19.2 PTS 5.7 REB 4.0 AST 1.2 STL 0.3 BLK 2.1 TO
When he plays he's a top-40 player, you just need to cross all of your fingers that he stays on the court.
#61
33
Pascal Siakam (TOR, PF,C) ADP: 48.7 AGE: 27.5
59 GP 0.454 FG% 0.832 FT% 1.3 3PM 20.6 PTS 6.9 REB 4.3 AST 1.1 STL 0.7 BLK 2.2 TO
The Siakam experience is a shaky one, but he's solidified himself as one of Toronto's best players and a top-50 fantasy player. He'll miss time early, so it's a good time to target him in potential trades if you're looking for value.
#62
4
Tobias Harris (PHI, SF,PF) ADP: 57.4 AGE: 29.2
75 GP 0.510 FG% 0.878 FT% 1.3 3PM 19.4 PTS 6.8 REB 3.5 AST 0.9 STL 0.8 BLK 1.7 TO
Continues to be a roto-friendly player, and should be a staple in the top-60 for another season or two.
#63
31
Isaiah Stewart (DET, PF,C) ADP: 79.7 AGE: 20.4
75 GP 0.543 FG% 0.732 FT% 0.4 3PM 11.1 PTS 9.1 REB 1.3 AST 0.8 STL 1.6 BLK 1.4 TO
He's a good high-energy guy who gives you an impact on the defensive end, but he needs to develop his offensive game if he wants to find himself as a starter next season.
#64
Mikal Bridges (PHX, SG,SF) ADP: 47.9 AGE: 25.1
78 GP 0.538 FG% 0.829 FT% 1.9 3PM 13.5 PTS 4.3 REB 2.1 AST 1.1 STL 0.9 BLK 0.8 TO
I like what Mikal provides long-term as a 3&D specialist, and his offensive production has started trending in the right direction.
#65

Terry Rozier (CHA, PG,SG) ADP: 64.1 AGE: 27.5
75 GP 0.441 FG% 0.829 FT% 3.0 3PM 19.6 PTS 4.3 REB 4.1 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 1.9 TO
Proved a lot of people wrong last season and locked himself in as the 2-guard option to play alongside LaMelo. He might not be able to replicate last season's production, but he'll get close.
#66
28
Christian Wood (HOU, PF,C) ADP: 41.1 AGE: 26.0
70 GP 0.513 FG% 0.646 FT% 1.8 3PM 20.0 PTS 9.3 REB 1.6 AST 0.8 STL 1.1 BLK 1.9 TO
Houston taking Green at the draft is a pretty good indication that Wood's output will remain the same while in Houston. Don't expect his output to change much from last season.
#67
16
Jerami Grant (DET, SF,PF) ADP: 72.5 AGE: 27.5
74 GP 0.450 FG% 0.843 FT% 2.0 3PM 19.9 PTS 4.4 REB 2.7 AST 0.6 STL 1.1 BLK 1.9 TO
We saw teams game-planning for him a lot better after his hot start to last season, and with Cade joining the team it's hard to see him retaining last season's usage.
#68
9
Malcolm Brogdon (IND, PG,SG) ADP: 72.7 AGE: 28.8
71 GP 0.445 FG% 0.845 FT% 2.5 3PM 20.1 PTS 5.1 REB 5.8 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 2.1 TO
Seems to always start the season on a tear and then slowly fizzle out a little and end up finishing the season as a top-50 player. If he starts the season hot again look to trade him while his value is high.
#69

Jamal Murray (DEN, PG,SG) ADP: 58.6 AGE: 24.6
19 GP 0.466 FG% 0.874 FT% 2.1 3PM 16.8 PTS 3.2 REB 3.8 AST 1.0 STL 0.2 BLK 1.7 TO
Injuries suck.
#70

Jakob Poeltl (SAS, C) ADP: 77.5 AGE: 26.0
77 GP 0.603 FG% 0.583 FT% 0.0 3PM 9.9 PTS 9.4 REB 2.2 AST 0.8 STL 2.1 BLK 1.4 TO
There's nobody standing in the way of Poeltl playing 30 minutes a night in San Antonio, and his FT% improved to over 60% for the last 2 months of the season. If that's real, then his value shoots up dramatically.
#71
15
Jonathan Isaac (ORL, SF,PF) ADP: 61.9 AGE: 24.0
56 GP 0.451 FG% 0.766 FT% 0.9 3PM 10.3 PTS 5.4 REB 1.1 AST 1.3 STL 1.7 BLK 1.1 TO
Trading Gordon was a nod to Orlando's trust in Isaac locking down the PF spot this season, and he was putting up top-30 value in his break-out season, but you can't ignore how much time he has missed over the past 2 seasons. Expect a slow start to the season when he does return, but the potential is there.
#72
25
Kawhi Leonard (LAC, SG,SF) ADP: 53.3 AGE: 30.3
10 GP 0.474 FG% 0.834 FT% 1.4 3PM 17.8 PTS 4.7 REB 3.7 AST 1.2 STL 0.3 BLK 1.7 TO
He'll be out for most of the season recovering from an ACL injury. He's already prone to missing games, and that should continue to be the case for the next few seasons.
#73
3
Caris LeVert (IND, SG,SF) ADP: 68.7 AGE: 27.1
68 GP 0.440 FG% 0.814 FT% 1.8 3PM 19.6 PTS 4.5 REB 5.1 AST 1.4 STL 0.6 BLK 2.2 TO
Hard to know if his run towards the end of last season was real with Indiana missing so many key players, but he has the tools to be a good fantasy player even when the team is at full strength.
#74
16
Jarrett Allen (CLE, C) ADP: 66.6 AGE: 23.4
74 GP 0.611 FG% 0.695 FT% 0.1 3PM 13.6 PTS 10.6 REB 1.8 AST 0.5 STL 1.5 BLK 1.7 TO
The additions of Mobley and Markkanen cap his upside, but he's still capable of averaging low-scoring double-doubles with close to 1.5 blocks a game.
#75
10
PJ Washington (CHA, PF,C) ADP: 72.7 AGE: 23.1
74 GP 0.447 FG% 0.753 FT% 1.8 3PM 13.1 PTS 6.6 REB 2.5 AST 1.1 STL 1.2 BLK 2.0 TO
PJ has quietly become a member of the 1-1-1 club last season and he also improved his FT% from 64.7% to 74.5%. Continuing to improve his shooting %s will go a long way in improving his fantasy production.
#76
11
Kevin Porter Jr. (HOU, SG,SF) ADP: 82.9 AGE: 21.4
70 GP 0.437 FG% 0.752 FT% 2.1 3PM 17.9 PTS 4.2 REB 6.5 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 3.3 TO
The starting PG is his with Wall having played his last game in Houston. He'd be a better fantasy player if he can clean up his shooting %s.
#77
9
Mitchell Robinson (NYK, C) ADP: 84.4 AGE: 23.5
71 GP 0.641 FG% 0.553 FT% 0.0 3PM 8.8 PTS 8.2 REB 0.5 AST 1.1 STL 1.7 BLK 0.9 TO
Thibs has managed to teach Robinson not to bite on every blocked shot attempt, and it helped him stay on the court for a little longer by avoiding foul trouble. He'll still give you the big man stats you're looking for, just don't expect his huge block rate from his rookie season to return this season.
#78
9
RJ Barrett (NYK, SG,SF) ADP: 69.5 AGE: 21.3
75 GP 0.447 FG% 0.763 FT% 1.8 3PM 18.6 PTS 5.9 REB 3.1 AST 0.7 STL 0.3 BLK 2.0 TO
His shooting %s improved last season, but they're still below average. If he can up them a little more this season then he'll be on his way to being a good fantasy option. Seems like a slow burn that'll take a few seasons to reach his potential.
#79
7
Jonas Valanciunas (NOP, C) ADP: 74.7 AGE: 29.4
73 GP 0.574 FG% 0.776 FT% 0.3 3PM 15.1 PTS 10.8 REB 1.8 AST 0.5 STL 0.9 BLK 1.6 TO
The move to New Orleans takes touches away from him on the offensive end and rebounds away from him on the defensive end, but he'll still provide value for a few more seasons.
#80
5
Russell Westbrook (LAL, PG) ADP: 57.5 AGE: 32.9
76 GP 0.468 FG% 0.706 FT% 1.1 3PM 19.3 PTS 8.2 REB 7.9 AST 1.2 STL 0.3 BLK 3.9 TO
Expect a drop in counting stats across the board as he plays alongside LeBron and AD.
#81
4
Saddiq Bey (DET, SF) ADP: 95.4 AGE: 22.5
76 GP 0.422 FG% 0.855 FT% 3.1 3PM 15.8 PTS 5.6 REB 1.8 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 1.1 TO
He flirted with being top-100 value in the last 4 weeks of the season and should carry that form into next season as he becomes a key building block of the Pistons rebuild.
#82
8
Draymond Green (GSW, PF,C) ADP: 92.3 AGE: 31.6
72 GP 0.449 FG% 0.797 FT% 0.5 3PM 7.3 PTS 7.5 REB 7.9 AST 1.6 STL 0.8 BLK 3.1 TO
If Golden State are a playoff team this season then we'll get a motivated Draymond, and a motivated Draymond is capable of putting up top-50 numbers.
#83
12
Wendell Carter Jr. (ORL, C) ADP: 87.6 AGE: 22.5
67 GP 0.507 FG% 0.725 FT% 0.3 3PM 12.4 PTS 9.0 REB 2.1 AST 0.7 STL 0.9 BLK 1.5 TO
Gets a chance to revive his career in Orlando. He still has huge upside if he can ever meet his potential.
#84
22
De'Andre Hunter (ATL, SF,PF) ADP: 79.9 AGE: 23.8
70 GP 0.476 FG% 0.864 FT% 1.4 3PM 14.9 PTS 4.8 REB 1.9 AST 0.8 STL 0.5 BLK 1.3 TO
He looked great before getting hurt, but we're still running off a small sample size and Atlanta is still deep at the SG/SF spot. Hunter does look the best of the bunch, though.
#85
16
Chris Paul (PHX, PG) ADP: 70.4 AGE: 36.4
72 GP 0.486 FG% 0.922 FT% 1.5 3PM 15.9 PTS 4.4 REB 8.6 AST 1.3 STL 0.3 BLK 2.2 TO
If you have Paul in a dynasty format now's the time to try and move him, unless you're competing for the title.
#86
6
Robert Covington (POR, PF,C) ADP: 87.2 AGE: 30.8
76 GP 0.423 FG% 0.778 FT% 2.0 3PM 9.7 PTS 6.7 REB 1.7 AST 1.4 STL 1.0 BLK 0.9 TO
Name a more iconic duo than Robert Covington starting the season slow and then ending the season as a top-70 guy.
#87
4
Marcus Smart (BOS, PG,SG) ADP: 96.0 AGE: 27.6
70 GP 0.415 FG% 0.794 FT% 1.9 3PM 13.4 PTS 3.4 REB 5.8 AST 1.5 STL 0.5 BLK 1.9 TO
It seems like Smart has returned to his old punt-FG ways, but his steals, 3s, and assists make up for it.
#88
9
Chris Boucher (TOR, PF,C) ADP: 77.6 AGE: 28.7
72 GP 0.512 FG% 0.780 FT% 1.4 3PM 12.4 PTS 6.2 REB 1.0 AST 0.5 STL 1.7 BLK 0.7 TO
He's going to continue to see stretches of games where he puts up great numbers, followed by stretches of games where he plays 15 minutes or less. His playing time is very match-up specific, but he's still somebody you want on the end of your roster.
#89
16
D'Angelo Russell (MIN, PG,SG) ADP: 73.8 AGE: 25.6
70 GP 0.432 FG% 0.751 FT% 3.0 3PM 20.0 PTS 2.8 REB 6.1 AST 1.1 STL 0.4 BLK 2.8 TO
His fantasy game is starting to regress and other players are becoming better options. Still has value in the right build.
#90
14
Miles Bridges (CHA, SF,PF) ADP: 82.6 AGE: 23.5
77 GP 0.500 FG% 0.884 FT% 1.7 3PM 12.3 PTS 5.8 REB 2.1 AST 0.6 STL 0.8 BLK 1.6 TO
The perfect running mate for LaMelo - will he lock down a starting spot this season?
#91
(NEW)
Scottie Barnes (TOR, SF) ADP: 87.3 AGE: 20.2
74 GP 0.446 FG% 0.587 FT% 0.4 3PM 8.9 PTS 4.1 REB 2.9 AST 1.1 STL 0.4 BLK 1.8 TO
Barnes has all of the tools to be a great defender in the NBA, but he needs to clean up his FT%. The defensive numbers look great, but where does he fit with OG and Siakam? Keep a look at what Toronto does in free agency.
#92
9
Buddy Hield (SAC, SG,SF) ADP: 86.2 AGE: 28.8
76 GP 0.418 FG% 0.801 FT% 3.9 3PM 16.1 PTS 4.6 REB 3.5 AST 0.9 STL 0.4 BLK 1.8 TO
Finished last season putting up nice assists and steals numbers, but the addition of Mitchell puts a cap on that.
#93
5
James Wiseman (GSW, C) ADP: 94.0 AGE: 20.5
48 GP 0.515 FG% 0.636 FT% 0.3 3PM 11.8 PTS 5.9 REB 0.7 AST 0.3 STL 0.9 BLK 1.5 TO
His value is low enough to take a flyer on during the off-season if the asking price is small enough.
#94
(NEW)
Josh Giddey (OKL, PG,SG) ADP: 75.0 AGE: 19.0
68 GP 0.408 FG% 0.664 FT% 1.0 3PM 9.6 PTS 6.3 REB 4.0 AST 1.1 STL 0.5 BLK 2.8 TO
If he can clean up his shooting percentages he's a chance of becoming a really nice fantasy player. Should have ample opportunity in OKC to collect those counting stats.
#95
(NEW)
Alperen Sengun (HOU, C) ADP: 98.7 AGE: 19.2
70 GP 0.531 FG% 0.796 FT% 0.5 3PM 10.5 PTS 6.4 REB 1.2 AST 0.6 STL 0.9 BLK 1.9 TO
Landed in a good spot in the offense-first Rockets, and his defense won't be an issue as Houston isn't in win-now mode.
#96
34
Kyle Anderson (MEM, SF,PF) ADP: 107.4 AGE: 28.0
75 GP 0.473 FG% 0.778 FT% 1.4 3PM 12.0 PTS 5.5 REB 3.5 AST 1.2 STL 0.8 BLK 1.2 TO
Has an underrated fantasy profile that doesn't hurt you in any categories. Somebody to target in trades who won't extend the budget.
#97
65
Nickeil Alexander-Walker (NOP, SG,SF) ADP: 112.4 AGE: 23.1
71 GP 0.437 FG% 0.765 FT% 2.4 3PM 15.5 PTS 4.2 REB 3.0 AST 1.4 STL 0.7 BLK 2.0 TO
Still very raw, but it looks like he'll be the opening night starter in New Orleans so things are trending up.
#98
2
Keldon Johnson (SAS, SF,PF) ADP: 86.9 AGE: 22.0
74 GP 0.474 FG% 0.749 FT% 1.4 3PM 16.4 PTS 6.5 REB 2.2 AST 1.0 STL 0.4 BLK 1.2 TO
There's a huge scoring hole looking to be filled for San Antonio, and Keldon is one of the players capable of filling it. He doesn't quite do enough in the majority of the 9 default categories, but the minutes are there for him this season to show improvement.
#99
(NEW)
Jonathan Kuminga (GSW, SF,PF) ADP: 110.0 AGE: 19.0
69 GP 0.425 FG% 0.640 FT% 0.8 3PM 8.4 PTS 3.8 REB 1.1 AST 0.8 STL 0.6 BLK 1.5 TO
I love everything about his game except his shooting %s, which are bad (40% from the field, 62% from the line, and 25% from 3). In terms of fantasy he might not be the best producing Warriors rookie in the short-term, but I like him better long-term.
#100
7
Aleksej Pokusevski (OKL, SF) ADP: 87.6 AGE: 19.8
70 GP 0.433 FG% 0.766 FT% 2.0 3PM 13.1 PTS 5.7 REB 2.6 AST 0.5 STL 1.1 BLK 2.6 TO
One of the biggest wildcards in fantasy basketball heading into next season - he has shown flashes of being a good fantasy player, and the upside is huge, but he's still very raw.
#101
4
Mike Conley (UTA, PG) ADP: 100.4 AGE: 34.0
68 GP 0.445 FG% 0.858 FT% 2.7 3PM 16.0 PTS 3.3 REB 5.9 AST 1.3 STL 0.2 BLK 1.9 TO
At this stage, he is what he is (an aging PG who'll hover around the 60-80 range in re-draft leagues for a few more seasons).
#102
38
Spencer Dinwiddie (WAS, PG,SG) ADP: 84.8 AGE: 28.5
69 GP 0.429 FG% 0.797 FT% 2.0 3PM 17.4 PTS 3.9 REB 6.8 AST 0.8 STL 0.3 BLK 3.0 TO
Moving to Washington was the best-case scenario for his fantasy production. He'll be a nice source of points and assists, but he needs to up his steals to cement himself as a top 80-100 guy.
#103
19
Thomas Bryant (WAS, C) ADP: 118.0 AGE: 24.2
38 GP 0.647 FG% 0.664 FT% 0.8 3PM 12.9 PTS 5.5 REB 1.4 AST 0.4 STL 0.7 BLK 1.0 TO
Bryant and Gafford make for an interesting offense/defense one-two punch, but it limits both of their ability to play big minutes. Gafford gets a head start with Bryant missing time to start the season.
#104
15
Tyler Herro (MIA, PG) ADP: 112.9 AGE: 21.7
70 GP 0.443 FG% 0.817 FT% 1.9 3PM 14.7 PTS 4.8 REB 3.3 AST 0.6 STL 0.3 BLK 1.8 TO
Yes, Miami has added talent to their roster, but they're super thin on the bench, so Herro will be playing close to starter minutes anyway.
#105
27
Andrew Wiggins (GSW, SG,SF) ADP: 74.7 AGE: 26.6
52 GP 0.476 FG% 0.706 FT% 1.8 3PM 16.7 PTS 4.4 REB 2.2 AST 0.8 STL 0.9 BLK 1.6 TO
Is Wiggins starting to finally work into Golden States system? Not a whole lot of upside with Klay eventually returning and Golden State drafting 2 rookies in the lottery who also play his position.
#106

DeMar DeRozan (CHI, SF,PF) ADP: 81.9 AGE: 32.1
