RANKPLAYER
#1
1
Nikola Jokic (DEN, PF,C) ADP: 1.8 AGE: 26.8
77 GP 0.569 FG% 0.808 FT% 1.5 3PM 26.5 PTS 13.9 REB 6.5 AST 1.1 STL 1.0 BLK 3.5 TO
He finished 1st in 9-cat last season, should finish top-2 this season, and he's still only 26. He'll be the best big man in fantasy basketball for years to come.
#2
1
Luka Doncic (DAL, PG,SG) ADP: 1.6 AGE: 22.8
75 GP 0.448 FG% 0.718 FT% 2.4 3PM 25.0 PTS 8.1 REB 8.0 AST 1.2 STL 0.6 BLK 4.4 TO
His counting stats are elite, and his defensive numbers are starting to look respectable. The only thing in the way of Luka reaching top-10 status in re-draft leagues are his shooting %s, and he'll get there if he can get them up to the league average.
#3
Karl-Anthony Towns (MIN, C) ADP: 4.6 AGE: 26.1
72 GP 0.484 FG% 0.856 FT% 3.0 3PM 23.5 PTS 10.0 REB 3.1 AST 1.2 STL 1.0 BLK 3.5 TO
There's only a handful of center-eligible players who are capable of hitting 2-3 threes a game, but none can match his efficiency from both FG% and FT% at such a high volume.
#4
Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL, PF,C) ADP: 3.5 AGE: 27.0
74 GP 0.529 FG% 0.696 FT% 1.3 3PM 27.1 PTS 11.4 REB 5.9 AST 1.2 STL 1.5 BLK 3.1 TO
If you have Giannis on your roster you're most likely punting FT%, and for your team build, he's the #1 player in fantasy.
#5
Jayson Tatum (BOS, SF,PF) ADP: 6.5 AGE: 23.8
76 GP 0.425 FG% 0.801 FT% 2.8 3PM 23.8 PTS 8.3 REB 3.6 AST 0.9 STL 0.8 BLK 2.7 TO
It's a small sample size, but Tatum's shooting %s have dropped to start the season. He's a career 45% shooter from the field and 84% from the line, so they'll eventually start treading upwards.
#6
7
LaMelo Ball (CHA, PG,SG) ADP: 14.9 AGE: 20.3
73 GP 0.435 FG% 0.824 FT% 2.6 3PM 19.8 PTS 6.6 REB 7.3 AST 1.7 STL 0.5 BLK 3.0 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.
#7
1
Trae Young (ATL, PG) ADP: 7.5 AGE: 23.2
78 GP 0.437 FG% 0.890 FT% 2.1 3PM 23.7 PTS 3.8 REB 9.3 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.
#8
2
Stephen Curry (GSW, PG,SG) ADP: 9.6 AGE: 33.7
73 GP 0.452 FG% 0.927 FT% 5.0 3PM 28.1 PTS 5.6 REB 6.4 AST 1.4 STL 0.6 BLK 3.4 TO
Steph is a hard one to rank in dynasty leagues. He's a top-3 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.
#9
Bam Adebayo (MIA, PF,C) ADP: 13.3 AGE: 24.4
76 GP 0.501 FG% 0.822 FT% 0.0 3PM 18.5 PTS 11.4 REB 2.5 AST 1.3 STL 0.7 BLK 3.0 TO
We know Bam is capable of averaging 5 assists a game when the ball runs through him on the offensive end, but how much of his career he'll be asked to play that role?
#10
1
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (OKL, PG,SG) ADP: 20.2 AGE: 23.4
70 GP 0.467 FG% 0.815 FT% 2.8 3PM 22.8 PTS 5.0 REB 4.3 AST 0.8 STL 0.5 BLK 2.6 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?
#11
4
Joel Embiid (PHI, PF,C) ADP: 9.2 AGE: 27.7
65 GP 0.486 FG% 0.811 FT% 1.2 3PM 25.1 PTS 10.6 REB 3.8 AST 0.8 STL 1.4 BLK 3.3 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.
#12
3
Anthony Davis (LAL, PF,C) ADP: 18.2 AGE: 28.7
69 GP 0.491 FG% 0.769 FT% 0.4 3PM 22.9 PTS 10.5 REB 2.7 AST 1.0 STL 2.2 BLK 2.4 TO
Day-to-Davis has bounced back after a season to forget. He'll be a consistent contributor so long as he's on the court.
#13
5
James Harden (BRO, PG,SG) ADP: 10.2 AGE: 32.3
75 GP 0.454 FG% 0.873 FT% 3.2 3PM 21.6 PTS 8.0 REB 9.5 AST 1.1 STL 0.9 BLK 4.2 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.
#14
6
Paul George (LAC, SF,PF) ADP: 24.7 AGE: 31.6
74 GP 0.468 FG% 0.882 FT% 3.5 3PM 28.0 PTS 7.9 REB 5.6 AST 1.4 STL 0.5 BLK 3.9 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.
#15
28
Evan Mobley (CLE, PF,C) ADP: 66.3 AGE: 20.5
67 GP 0.507 FG% 0.789 FT% 0.6 3PM 14.6 PTS 7.5 REB 2.5 AST 1.0 STL 1.5 BLK 1.4 TO
Rookies rarely finish in the top-50 rankings during their rookie season, but Mobley is on track to do it. He'll be out for a few weeks with an elbow injury, but everything is pointing to Mobley being a future fantasy stud.
#16
5
Kevin Durant (BRO, SF,PF) ADP: 26.5 AGE: 33.2
68 GP 0.546 FG% 0.882 FT% 2.1 3PM 29.9 PTS 8.2 REB 5.0 AST 0.7 STL 0.9 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.
#17
7
Donovan Mitchell (UTA, PG,SG) ADP: 27.7 AGE: 25.2
72 GP 0.439 FG% 0.842 FT% 3.4 3PM 25.6 PTS 4.3 REB 5.1 AST 1.3 STL 0.2 BLK 3.0 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.
#18
Zach LaVine (CHI, SG,SF) ADP: 22.1 AGE: 26.7
72 GP 0.485 FG% 0.843 FT% 2.6 3PM 25.3 PTS 4.8 REB 4.2 AST 0.6 STL 0.5 BLK 3.0 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
6
Jaylen Brown (BOS, SG,SF) ADP: 24.0 AGE: 25.1
70 GP 0.484 FG% 0.768 FT% 2.9 3PM 25.8 PTS 6.1 REB 2.4 AST 1.2 STL 0.5 BLK 3.1 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%.
#20
9
Jimmy Butler (MIA, SF,PF) ADP: 38.2 AGE: 32.2
72 GP 0.501 FG% 0.860 FT% 0.5 3PM 23.1 PTS 6.4 REB 5.3 AST 1.9 STL 0.4 BLK 2.1 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.
#21
9
Bradley Beal (WAS, SG,SF) ADP: 15.8 AGE: 28.4
68 GP 0.446 FG% 0.888 FT% 2.1 3PM 25.7 PTS 5.5 REB 5.8 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 3.9 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.
#22
3
Cade Cunningham (DET, PG,SG) ADP: 30.3 AGE: 20.2
70 GP 0.427 FG% 0.840 FT% 1.8 3PM 15.5 PTS 4.5 REB 3.5 AST 1.2 STL 0.6 BLK 3.3 TO
He's starting the season slow, but he'll pick things up after he gets a few more games under his belt.
#23
1
Fred VanVleet (TOR, PG,SG) ADP: 25.1 AGE: 27.8
70 GP 0.416 FG% 0.842 FT% 3.3 3PM 20.1 PTS 4.0 REB 7.1 AST 1.6 STL 0.5 BLK 2.7 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.
#24
7
Domantas Sabonis (IND, PF,C) ADP: 15.5 AGE: 25.6
72 GP 0.518 FG% 0.722 FT% 0.8 3PM 18.4 PTS 11.0 REB 4.2 AST 1.4 STL 0.4 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.
#25
3
Devin Booker (PHX, SG,SF) ADP: 20.5 AGE: 25.1
76 GP 0.461 FG% 0.820 FT% 2.3 3PM 23.8 PTS 6.5 REB 5.2 AST 1.1 STL 0.3 BLK 3.1 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.
#26
11
Ja Morant (MEM, PG) ADP: 35.0 AGE: 22.3
73 GP 0.462 FG% 0.754 FT% 1.4 3PM 24.3 PTS 4.5 REB 7.4 AST 1.3 STL 0.3 BLK 3.3 TO
His numbers are up across the board, and if he can continue to average 1.5+ threes and over 1 steal a game then he's a good chance for a top-30 finish to the season.
#27
4
Jaren Jackson Jr. (MEM, PF,C) ADP: 38.7 AGE: 22.2
70 GP 0.444 FG% 0.828 FT% 2.0 3PM 15.5 PTS 6.9 REB 1.4 AST 0.9 STL 2.0 BLK 1.9 TO
Don't mind me, I'm just sitting here, patiently waiting for JJJ to turn into the top-40 player we were expecting him to be this season.
#28
4
Myles Turner (IND, PF,C) ADP: 39.2 AGE: 25.7
72 GP 0.489 FG% 0.747 FT% 2.1 3PM 13.9 PTS 8.2 REB 1.0 AST 0.7 STL 3.0 BLK 1.5 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.
#29
5
Tyrese Haliburton (SAC, PG,SG) ADP: 50.0 AGE: 21.8
72 GP 0.484 FG% 0.828 FT% 1.5 3PM 13.9 PTS 3.2 REB 5.3 AST 1.4 STL 0.9 BLK 1.6 TO
Transitioned to the NBA as well as you could have hoped, and should continue his upward trajectory to one day becoming a top-30 player.
#30
8
Anthony Edwards (MIN, SG,SF) ADP: 37.2 AGE: 20.3
77 GP 0.427 FG% 0.772 FT% 3.1 3PM 24.1 PTS 6.1 REB 3.3 AST 1.4 STL 0.6 BLK 2.8 TO
If he can up his FG% to something respectable, like 44%, then he'll be a top-40 player in re-draft leagues.
#31
17
Zion Williamson (NOP, PF) ADP: 11.0 AGE: 21.4
45 GP 0.603 FG% 0.700 FT% 0.2 3PM 23.3 PTS 6.2 REB 3.5 AST 0.8 STL 0.6 BLK 2.5 TO
His upside is huge (no, that wasn't a pun about his weight). but he has missed significant time every season since joining the NBA, and he's almost off his rookie contract without a healthy season in the books.
#32
16
Dejounte Murray (SAS, PG,SG) ADP: 45.1 AGE: 25.2
74 GP 0.444 FG% 0.776 FT% 1.2 3PM 18.5 PTS 7.7 REB 8.1 AST 1.8 STL 0.4 BLK 2.1 TO
Murray is the main beneficiary of the usage left from DeRozan, Mills, and Gay's departure, and his numbers are up across the board outside of his shooting %s, which is expected with more of the offense running through him.
#33
7
Deandre Ayton (PHX, C) ADP: 27.5 AGE: 23.4
76 GP 0.586 FG% 0.734 FT% 0.2 3PM 15.6 PTS 10.9 REB 1.5 AST 1.0 STL 1.0 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.
#34
17
Darius Garland (CLE, PG) ADP: 55.3 AGE: 21.9
70 GP 0.464 FG% 0.870 FT% 2.5 3PM 17.8 PTS 2.4 REB 7.2 AST 1.2 STL 0.1 BLK 3.5 TO
It looks like Cleveland has made their decision, and Garland is the future PG of the team.
#35
19
Damian Lillard (POR, PG) ADP: 11.7 AGE: 31.4
71 GP 0.427 FG% 0.886 FT% 2.8 3PM 22.6 PTS 4.1 REB 7.9 AST 0.7 STL 0.2 BLK 2.8 TO
Something is up with Lillard this season. He's looking to facilitate more and his FG% has taken a hit, which suggests he might be playing hurt.
#36
3
Rudy Gobert (UTA, C) ADP: 37.3 AGE: 29.4
76 GP 0.693 FG% 0.659 FT% 0.0 3PM 14.8 PTS 14.5 REB 1.0 AST 0.9 STL 2.2 BLK 2.3 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.
#37
10
Brandon Ingram (NOP, SF,PF) ADP: 30.3 AGE: 24.3
70 GP 0.460 FG% 0.739 FT% 2.5 3PM 24.5 PTS 6.4 REB 4.9 AST 0.4 STL 0.6 BLK 3.0 TO
Has proven that he's more than capable of continuing to stuff the stat sheet alongside a healthy Zion.
#38
53
Scottie Barnes (TOR, SF,PF) ADP: 87.3 AGE: 20.3
74 GP 0.504 FG% 0.747 FT% 0.2 3PM 16.2 PTS 7.4 REB 3.2 AST 1.1 STL 0.7 BLK 2.3 TO
Remember when everybody was worried that Toronto reached for Barnes in the draft? Well, right now it's looking like one of the best draft-day selections.
#39
3
OG Anunoby (TOR, SF,PF) ADP: 43.8 AGE: 24.4
70 GP 0.452 FG% 0.789 FT% 2.4 3PM 19.2 PTS 5.5 REB 3.1 AST 1.5 STL 0.6 BLK 1.7 TO
Has the potential to be a top-50 staple as he continues to develop his game.
#40
5
De'Aaron Fox (SAC, PG) ADP: 25.9 AGE: 24.0
73 GP 0.462 FG% 0.726 FT% 1.5 3PM 23.1 PTS 3.2 REB 6.2 AST 1.5 STL 0.6 BLK 3.6 TO
Seems to be undervalued by a lot of people, but his FT% needs to improve this season after regressing last season.
#41
1
Julius Randle (NYK, PF,C) ADP: 28.8 AGE: 27.0
77 GP 0.455 FG% 0.788 FT% 1.8 3PM 20.9 PTS 10.2 REB 5.8 AST 0.9 STL 0.9 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
3
Clint Capela (ATL, C) ADP: 44.9 AGE: 27.6
75 GP 0.551 FG% 0.581 FT% 0.0 3PM 13.4 PTS 12.1 REB 0.7 AST 0.7 STL 1.9 BLK 1.0 TO
The opportunity to get Capela for a good deal is closing as he works his way back to full health.
#43
2
Richaun Holmes (SAC, PF,C) ADP: 63.2 AGE: 28.1
72 GP 0.647 FG% 0.847 FT% 0.1 3PM 13.8 PTS 10.0 REB 1.3 AST 0.4 STL 1.2 BLK 1.8 TO
Holmes continues being underrated in certain circles and he'll continue to out-perform his ADP for another season.
#44
6
John Collins (ATL, PF,C) ADP: 39.4 AGE: 24.2
75 GP 0.572 FG% 0.839 FT% 1.4 3PM 16.9 PTS 8.3 REB 2.1 AST 0.7 STL 0.9 BLK 1.4 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.
#45
1
Lonzo Ball (CHI, PG,SG) ADP: 53.2 AGE: 24.1
70 GP 0.411 FG% 0.808 FT% 3.0 3PM 12.3 PTS 5.2 REB 4.6 AST 1.6 STL 0.8 BLK 2.4 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.
#46
16
Nikola Vucevic (CHI, C) ADP: 33.4 AGE: 31.1
69 GP 0.463 FG% 0.795 FT% 1.0 3PM 16.3 PTS 10.7 REB 3.4 AST 1.0 STL 0.9 BLK 1.6 TO
He's shooting at an all-time low from the field and the line, so he's leaving a lot of points on the table, but the rest of his game is where you'd expect it to be.
#47
3
Khris Middleton (MIL, SF,PF) ADP: 43.5 AGE: 30.3
70 GP 0.468 FG% 0.885 FT% 2.2 3PM 20.1 PTS 5.9 REB 5.4 AST 1.3 STL 0.1 BLK 2.8 TO
Continues to out-perform his ADP and continues to be underrated by mainstream fantasy players. Has a game that should age well.
#48
26
Jarrett Allen (CLE, C) ADP: 66.6 AGE: 23.6
74 GP 0.632 FG% 0.638 FT% 0.1 3PM 14.6 PTS 11.0 REB 1.9 AST 1.1 STL 1.0 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.
#49
41
Miles Bridges (CHA, SF,PF) ADP: 82.6 AGE: 23.7
77 GP 0.446 FG% 0.798 FT% 2.3 3PM 19.2 PTS 7.2 REB 3.0 AST 1.4 STL 0.8 BLK 1.8 TO
Has started the season on an absolute tear, but how much longer can he continue this level of play?
#50
1
Ben Simmons (PHI, PG) ADP: 40.3 AGE: 25.4
59 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. Your guess is as good as mine on whether he'll play this season.
#51
13
Mikal Bridges (PHX, SG,SF) ADP: 47.9 AGE: 25.3
78 GP 0.547 FG% 0.829 FT% 1.9 3PM 14.7 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.
#52
5
LeBron James (LAL, PG,SG,SF) ADP: 53.7 AGE: 36.9
62 GP 0.486 FG% 0.752 FT% 2.4 3PM 24.6 PTS 5.8 REB 7.0 AST 1.4 STL 0.8 BLK 3.9 TO
Never doubt LeBron James, but he'll be 37 in December, and his focus should be on championships, and not the regular season.
#53
3
Jrue Holiday (MIL, PG,SG) ADP: 61.8 AGE: 31.5
70 GP 0.484 FG% 0.782 FT% 1.8 3PM 16.5 PTS 4.2 REB 5.7 AST 1.5 STL 0.6 BLK 2.1 TO
He's back to playing at an elite level and has minimal competition at either of the guard spots in Milwaukee.
#54
7
Kyrie Irving (BRO, PG,SG) ADP: 30.4 AGE: 29.7
27 GP 0.492 FG% 0.904 FT% 2.7 3PM 23.0 PTS 3.7 REB 5.2 AST 1.2 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. I'm choosing to be optimistic and think he'll come back and play towards the end of the season, but I'm not expecting you to, as he's just as likely to retire. For the record, I'm choosing to rank him like he'll be out injured for the season.
#55
3
Robert Williams (BOS, C) ADP: 78.1 AGE: 24.1
68 GP 0.703 FG% 0.608 FT% 0.0 3PM 10.1 PTS 8.4 REB 1.3 AST 1.1 STL 1.8 BLK 1.2 TO
I'm a bit hesitant to rank guys with so much value tied to blocks as we tend to see a lot of fluctuation in that category from young players, but he's currently playing like a top-30 guy.
#56
38
Josh Giddey (OKL, PG,SG) ADP: 75.0 AGE: 19.2
70 GP 0.407 FG% 0.647 FT% 1.0 3PM 10.9 PTS 6.8 REB 6.4 AST 1.3 STL 0.6 BLK 2.7 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.
#57

Pascal Siakam (TOR, PF,C) ADP: 48.7 AGE: 27.7
59 GP 0.454 FG% 0.834 FT% 1.2 3PM 19.1 PTS 6.4 REB 3.8 AST 1.0 STL 1.0 BLK 2.1 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 in re-draft leagues.

Michael Porter Jr. (DEN, SF,PF) ADP: 29.9 AGE: 23.4
67 GP 0.469 FG% 0.766 FT% 2.1 3PM 16.6 PTS 6.4 REB 1.4 AST 1.1 STL 0.5 BLK 1.3 TO
His value is tied to how efficiently he shoots, and when his shot isn't falling, like it isn't this season, then his value tanks. He's not a 36% shooter from the field, so expect that to bounce back up once he returns from injury. The trade window is open if you're looking for a good deal.
#59

Wendell Carter Jr. (ORL, PF,C) ADP: 87.6 AGE: 22.6
67 GP 0.500 FG% 0.733 FT% 1.5 3PM 13.7 PTS 10.0 REB 2.3 AST 0.7 STL 0.8 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.

Jonas Valanciunas (NOP, C) ADP: 74.7 AGE: 29.6
73 GP 0.542 FG% 0.828 FT% 0.4 3PM 19.5 PTS 13.2 REB 2.2 AST 0.6 STL 0.9 BLK 2.3 TO
Now's a great time to try and flip Jonas if you can find somebody willing to give up a top 20-30 guy. His value will take a hit if/when Zion returns, but he's still more than capable of producing along side of him.
#61

Derrick White (SAS, PG,SG) ADP: 77.9 AGE: 27.4
69 GP 0.412 FG% 0.798 FT% 2.0 3PM 14.6 PTS 3.4 REB 5.5 AST 1.1 STL 1.1 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.
#62

Jerami Grant (DET, SF,PF) ADP: 72.5 AGE: 27.7
74 GP 0.428 FG% 0.803 FT% 1.8 3PM 17.8 PTS 4.9 REB 2.3 AST 0.9 STL 1.2 BLK 2.0 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.
#63
18
Kristaps Porzingis (DAL, PF,C) ADP: 55.4 AGE: 26.3
69 GP 0.443 FG% 0.814 FT% 1.7 3PM 17.4 PTS 7.6 REB 1.9 AST 0.9 STL 1.4 BLK 1.6 TO
Porzingis is always going to be the guy with an injury cloud hovering over him, so you're never going to get a fair return when trading him if you're looking at per-game value, but when he plays, he's putting up top-50 value.
#64
22
Jusuf Nurkic (POR, C) ADP: 57.1 AGE: 27.3
69 GP 0.545 FG% 0.674 FT% 0.2 3PM 12.4 PTS 10.9 REB 2.4 AST 1.3 STL 0.9 BLK 2.3 TO
Is Nurkic really just a guy capable of putting up top 60-70 value in 25-27 minutes a game?
#65
12
Jalen Green (HOU, SG) ADP: 62.0 AGE: 19.8
73 GP 0.413 FG% 0.789 FT% 2.2 3PM 16.2 PTS 3.6 REB 3.1 AST 0.7 STL 0.3 BLK 2.5 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 last, and Green is the better player. It's going to take time, and he's going to tank your FG% in the process, but the potential is there.
#66

CJ McCollum (POR, PG,SG) ADP: 70.0 AGE: 30.2
72 GP 0.443 FG% 0.822 FT% 3.5 3PM 22.8 PTS 3.8 REB 4.0 AST 1.1 STL 0.6 BLK 2.0 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.
#67
7
Gordon Hayward (CHA, SG,SF) ADP: 75.1 AGE: 31.7
68 GP 0.486 FG% 0.831 FT% 2.3 3PM 18.7 PTS 5.5 REB 3.4 AST 0.9 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.
#68

Tobias Harris (PHI, SF,PF) ADP: 57.4 AGE: 29.4
75 GP 0.528 FG% 0.878 FT% 1.3 3PM 19.4 PTS 8.2 REB 3.8 AST 0.6 STL 0.6 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.
#69
1
Malcolm Brogdon (IND, PG,SG) ADP: 72.7 AGE: 29.0
70 GP 0.445 FG% 0.868 FT% 1.8 3PM 19.7 PTS 5.1 REB 6.5 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.
#70
4
Christian Wood (HOU, PF,C) ADP: 41.1 AGE: 26.2
70 GP 0.474 FG% 0.609 FT% 1.8 3PM 18.7 PTS 10.4 REB 2.0 AST 0.8 STL 0.9 BLK 1.9 TO
Wood is Houston's best offensive weapon, but their goal isn't to win games, and shots will be taken away from him to develop Green and Porter Jr.
#71
6
Terry Rozier (CHA, PG,SG) ADP: 64.1 AGE: 27.7
75 GP 0.433 FG% 0.829 FT% 2.7 3PM 17.3 PTS 4.2 REB 3.4 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.
#72

Jamal Murray (DEN, PG,SG) ADP: 58.6 AGE: 24.8
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.

Jonathan Isaac (ORL, SF,PF) ADP: 61.9 AGE: 24.2
56 GP 0.451 FG% 0.767 FT% 0.8 3PM 9.6 PTS 5.1 REB 1.1 AST 1.2 STL 1.6 BLK 1.1 TO
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.
#74
2
Kawhi Leonard (LAC, SG,SF) ADP: 53.3 AGE: 30.4
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.
#75
2
Caris LeVert (IND, SG,SF) ADP: 68.7 AGE: 27.3
68 GP 0.440 FG% 0.795 FT% 1.7 3PM 18.7 PTS 4.3 REB 4.9 AST 1.2 STL 0.6 BLK 2.1 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.
#76
58
Cole Anthony (ORL, PG) ADP: 147.5 AGE: 21.6
72 GP 0.441 FG% 0.848 FT% 3.3 3PM 18.0 PTS 5.6 REB 4.8 AST 1.1 STL 0.4 BLK 2.6 TO
Anthony has started the season hot and looks like he belongs in the starting lineup. It's debatable whether he's a starter on a good team, but Orlando won't be good for a while, so that's not too important right now.
#77
58
Tyrese Maxey (PHI, PG,SG) ADP: 116.1 AGE: 21.1
72 GP 0.490 FG% 0.865 FT% 1.5 3PM 17.6 PTS 3.4 REB 5.0 AST 0.8 STL 0.5 BLK 1.6 TO
Has looked great to start the season filling in the Ben Simmons hole. What that role looks like if Simmons returns, or what the Simmons trade package looks like is up in the air, but either way, Maxey has proved that he belongs as a big minute rotation player.
#78
23
Jalen Suggs (ORL, PG,SG) ADP: 74.3 AGE: 20.5
73 GP 0.415 FG% 0.842 FT% 1.3 3PM 13.0 PTS 3.9 REB 4.5 AST 1.1 STL 0.3 BLK 3.0 TO
Orlando is deep at the PG spot, and while he's had a poor start to the season, it's not uncommon for PGs to take a while to adapt to running an NBA offense. He'll be better than this.
#79
27
DeMar DeRozan (CHI, SF,PF) ADP: 81.9 AGE: 32.3
76 GP 0.481 FG% 0.876 FT% 0.7 3PM 24.7 PTS 4.8 REB 3.4 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 2.0 TO
I was expecting DeRozan's value to take a hit moving to Chicago, but his scoring has gone up, and his assists haven't gone down as much as I was expecting.
#80
49
Franz Wagner (ORL, SG,SF) ADP: 174.0 AGE: 20.3
70 GP 0.453 FG% 0.714 FT% 2.0 3PM 13.2 PTS 3.8 REB 2.1 AST 1.1 STL 0.4 BLK 1.4 TO
Landed in a good spot in Orlando and started the season in the starting lineup. Should be playing starter minutes whether he continues to start or comes off the bench when Isaac returns from injury.
#81
3
RJ Barrett (NYK, SG,SF) ADP: 69.5 AGE: 21.5
75 GP 0.440 FG% 0.769 FT% 2.2 3PM 18.3 PTS 5.9 REB 3.1 AST 0.4 STL 0.3 BLK 2.2 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.
#82
12
Jakob Poeltl (SAS, C) ADP: 77.5 AGE: 26.1
77 GP 0.610 FG% 0.583 FT% 0.0 3PM 13.3 PTS 9.9 REB 2.3 AST 0.9 STL 1.7 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.
#83
21
Tyler Herro (MIA, PG) ADP: 112.9 AGE: 21.9
70 GP 0.450 FG% 0.814 FT% 2.5 3PM 18.7 PTS 4.8 REB 3.9 AST 0.4 STL 0.2 BLK 2.5 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.
#84
5
D'Angelo Russell (MIN, PG,SG) ADP: 73.8 AGE: 25.8
70 GP 0.423 FG% 0.777 FT% 2.3 3PM 16.7 PTS 2.8 REB 6.1 AST 1.0 STL 0.5 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.
#85
89
Devin Vassell (SAS, SG) ADP: 127.7 AGE: 21.3
75 GP 0.458 FG% 0.812 FT% 2.1 3PM 13.6 PTS 4.1 REB 1.8 AST 1.3 STL 0.7 BLK 0.9 TO
Has a touch of the Mikal Bridges about him as a defensive-minded 3-point shooter. If he's somehow still on your waiver wire, go and add him now.
#86
9
Mitchell Robinson (NYK, C) ADP: 84.4 AGE: 23.7
69 GP 0.711 FG% 0.553 FT% 0.0 3PM 8.8 PTS 8.2 REB 1.0 AST 0.7 STL 1.6 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.
#87
35
Jordan Poole (GSW, PG,SG) ADP: 126.3 AGE: 22.5
74 GP 0.437 FG% 0.853 FT% 3.0 3PM 17.2 PTS 2.5 REB 2.9 AST 1.1 STL 0.3 BLK 1.8 TO
Definitely isn't shy to shoot and has the confidence to stick around as a key rotation player for years to come.
#88
7
Alperen Sengun (HOU, C) ADP: 98.7 AGE: 19.4
70 GP 0.499 FG% 0.720 FT% 0.5 3PM 10.2 PTS 5.8 REB 2.2 AST 1.3 STL 0.5 BLK 2.3 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.
#89
7
Draymond Green (GSW, PF,C) ADP: 92.3 AGE: 31.8
72 GP 0.484 FG% 0.740 FT% 0.5 3PM 8.7 PTS 7.5 REB 7.6 AST 1.5 STL 0.7 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.
#90
2
Buddy Hield (SAC, SG,SF) ADP: 86.2 AGE: 29.0
76 GP 0.413 FG% 0.852 FT% 3.9 3PM 16.8 PTS 4.6 REB 1.8 AST 0.9 STL 0.4 BLK 2.0 TO
Finished last season putting up nice assists and steals numbers, but the addition of Mitchell puts a cap on that.
#91
37
Collin Sexton (CLE, PG,SG) ADP: 61.7 AGE: 22.9
62 GP 0.465 FG% 0.807 FT% 1.2 3PM 16.6 PTS 2.3 REB 2.2 AST 0.8 STL 0.2 BLK 2.0 TO
At this point, we need to stop looking at Sexton as a PG. He's a score-first combo-guard, who might be best suited in a 6th man role.
#92
29
Isaiah Stewart (DET, PF,C) ADP: 79.7 AGE: 20.5
75 GP 0.544 FG% 0.713 FT% 0.4 3PM 9.6 PTS 7.8 REB 1.1 AST 0.7 STL 1.3 BLK 1.2 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 staple on dynasty rosters.
#93
17
Kevin Porter Jr. (HOU, SG,SF) ADP: 82.9 AGE: 21.6
70 GP 0.405 FG% 0.714 FT% 2.0 3PM 14.7 PTS 3.5 REB 5.5 AST 1.2 STL 0.3 BLK 2.8 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.
#94
18
Harrison Barnes (SAC, SF,PF) ADP: 137.7 AGE: 29.5
72 GP 0.495 FG% 0.852 FT% 2.0 3PM 19.1 PTS 7.9 REB 2.9 AST 1.0 STL 0.2 BLK 1.9 TO
Is he going to continue shooting 50% from the field? Has good short-term value so long as his shot keeps on falling.
#95
10
Chris Paul (PHX, PG) ADP: 70.4 AGE: 36.6
72 GP 0.491 FG% 0.922 FT% 1.4 3PM 14.5 PTS 4.4 REB 10.2 AST 1.7 STL 0.4 BLK 2.3 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.
#96
16
Russell Westbrook (LAL, PG) ADP: 57.5 AGE: 33.1
76 GP 0.436 FG% 0.706 FT% 1.1 3PM 19.3 PTS 8.7 REB 8.5 AST 1.4 STL 0.3 BLK 3.9 TO
Expect a drop in counting stats across the board as he plays alongside LeBron and AD.
#97
35
Mo Bamba (ORL, C) ADP: 113.5 AGE: 23.6
68 GP 0.483 FG% 0.684 FT% 1.5 3PM 11.4 PTS 8.7 REB 1.6 AST 0.7 STL 1.9 BLK 1.9 TO
Orlando went against the trend and started the season with two centers in their starting lineup. It's not impacting on the wins column, but it's having a positive impact on Mo's fantasy production.
#98
11
Marcus Smart (BOS, PG,SG) ADP: 96.0 AGE: 27.8
70 GP 0.395 FG% 0.798 FT% 1.6 3PM 10.0 PTS 3.4 REB 5.0 AST 1.8 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.
#99
34
Matisse Thybulle (PHI, SG,SF) ADP: 104.5 AGE: 24.8
72 GP 0.449 FG% 0.571 FT% 0.9 3PM 6.0 PTS 2.2 REB 1.2 AST 2.1 STL 1.5 BLK 0.8 TO
A defensive stud who proved he has a 3-point shot in the Olympics. Will we see it in the NBA?
#100
3
Nickeil Alexander-Walker (NOP, SG,SF) ADP: 112.4 AGE: 23.3
71 GP 0.407 FG% 0.766 FT% 2.3 3PM 14.4 PTS 4.5 REB 2.5 AST 1.2 STL 0.5 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.
#101
3
Keldon Johnson (SAS, SF,PF) ADP: 86.9 AGE: 22.2
74 GP 0.467 FG% 0.749 FT% 1.0 3PM 16.1 PTS 6.5 REB 2.0 AST 1.1 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.
#102
21
Saddiq Bey (DET, SG,SF) ADP: 95.4 AGE: 22.7
76 GP 0.421 FG% 0.756 FT% 2.0 3PM 14.6 PTS 5.6 REB 2.8 AST 1.0 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. Consistency will be the only thing holding him back.
#103
92
Chris Duarte (IND, SG) ADP: 176.0 AGE: 24.5
71 GP 0.438 FG% 0.799 FT% 2.1 3PM 13.4 PTS 3.8 REB 2.3 AST 0.7 STL 0.1 BLK 2.0 TO
Will be one of the oldest players drafted and should see rotation minutes off the bench in Indiana.
#104
18
Robert Covington (POR, PF,C) ADP: 87.2 AGE: 31.0
74 GP 0.410 FG% 0.772 FT% 2.0 3PM 8.7 PTS 5.8 REB 1.0 AST 1.2 STL 0.8 BLK 0.8 TO
Name a more iconic duo than Robert Covington starting the season slow and then ending the season as a top-70 guy.
#105
4
Mike Conley (UTA, PG) ADP: 100.4 AGE: 34.2
68 GP 0.476 FG% 0.858 FT% 2.7 3PM 15.8 PTS 3.3 REB 5.7 AST 1.3 STL 0.3 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).
#106
4
Spencer Dinwiddie (WAS, PG,SG) ADP: 84.8 AGE: 28.7
69 GP 0.424 FG% 0.901 FT% 1.8 3PM 15.2 PTS 4.4 REB 5.5 AST 0.5 STL 0.2 BLK 2.0 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 s
