RANKPLAYERAGETEAMPOSCOMMENTS
#1 Zion Williamson 19NOPPFWe're starting to see flashes of what he's capable of, and those flashes are of a top fantasy prospect. It'll take time, but the potential is there.
#2 Ja Morant 20MEMPGHas started the season better than people were predicting, and he's already doing a good job leading Memphis' offense. My only concern is with how ferocious he attacks the rim, given his slender frame. Somebody to target in dynasty formats if you can get your hands on him.
#3 Brandon Clarke 23MEMPFHe's putting up top 100 value in under 22 minutes a game, and you have to assume that his role will increase as the season goes on.
#4 RJ Barrett 19NYKSGSuitable for only a few punt builds given his horrible shooting percentages, but if you happen to be punting both FG% and FT%, you should be able to get him on the cheap.
#5 PJ Washington 21CHAPFHe'll get better as the season goes on, and his development will continue to be a focal point for Charlotte. The Hornets struggle to sign free agents, so it's hard to see him being replaced in the starting line-up any time soon.
#6 Jarrett Culver 21MINSFHas shown flashes of being a productive player, but those flashes aren't enough to make up for his putrid shooting percentages. Somebody to stash in dynasty leagues.
#7 Darius Garland 20CLESGHe hasn't had a great start to his career, but he's the kind of player who needs a few years in an NBA system to show us what he's capable of doing. Somebody to stash in dynasty leagues, and somebody to monitor in re-draft leagues.
#8 Coby White 20CHIPGCoby White's season so far has been the definition of a rollercoaster ride, but it's one you want to be taking in a dynasty build so long as you can cover his FG%.
#9 9 Eric Paschall 23GSWPFIt's debatable how much playing time he'll get next season when everybody is healthy, but the only thing you can do now is enjoy the ride, and hope for the best.
#10 1 De'Andre Hunter 22ATLSFHunter looks like he'll be one of those better-in-real-life-than-fantasy players. He's projected to be an elite defender but failed to tally more than 0.6 SPG in 32.5 MPG during his last season in college, and he's only averaging 0.6 steals in just under 32 minutes so far this season in Atlanta.
#11 1 Rui Hachimura 22WASSFHe's still a little raw, but he'll be given every chance to produce this season in an attempt to accelerate his progress.
#12 10 Cam Reddish 20ATLSFHis FG% has improved (ever so slightly) as the season progresses, but it'll need to be above 40% before we can consider him a fantasy option.
#13 2 Kevin Porter Jr 20CLESFHis minutes are up, and he's looking like the best rookie on Cleveland's roster.
#14 2 Kendrick Nunn 24MIASGStarted the season on a tear, but Miami are deep at the guard spot, and when his shot isn't falling, he doesn't provide much else.
#15 2 Matisse Thybulle 23PHISFHas a great defensive game (3.5 STL, 2.3 BLK in his last season in college), but his offensive game is limited. I'm worried about non-lottery rookies drafted on teams with finals aspirations, but he has the potential to be a defensive specialist rotation player in a few seasons.
#16 2 Terence Davis 23TORSGWorth stashing in dynasty formats as he has shown that he's more than capable of being an NBA rotation player.
#17 2 Tyler Herro 20MIASGHe can make it rain when he gets hot, but he needs to builds on other aspects of his game to be standard-league relevant.
#18 2 Sekou Doumbouya 19DETPFStill raw, but he's a great athlete who thrives in the open court and has the tools to become a good 3&D player. Detroit doesn't have a great track record in developing players, but that just means there's less youth ahead of him if he can crack the rotation. He should continue to get minutes with Blake out.
#19 2 Goga Bitadze 20INDCIt's always hard for rookies to find minutes on playoff teams when they're stacked in their primary position. The talent is there, but the playing time isn't.
#20 1 Nickeil Alexander-Walker 21NOPSFSeems like the perfect replacement for Jrue Holiday if New Orleans choose to trade him. His upside is capped in the short term given how deep New Orleans is on the wing, but he's somebody to target in dynasty leagues and should become a good player within a few seasons.
#21 Jaxson Hayes 20NOPCStill very raw and rebounding isn't one of his strengths. Should get minutes towards the end of the season of New Orleans fall out of the playoff race.
#22 8 Nicolo Melli 29NOPPF 
#23 Nassir Little 20PORSFWas highly touted coming out of high school, but had a less than memorable year in college. He's somebody to keep an eye on, but he fills an obvious need for Portland, so they'll likely be grooming him this season for a bigger role in the future.
#24 Dylan Windler 23CLESFHe can score and has a crafty offensive game, I'm just worried if he'll be able to stay on the court due to his defensive game. Luckily he's on a team that doesn't seem focused on winning, so he has time to work it out, and should be given every opportunity to be a rotation player this season.
#25 Jordan Poole 20GSWSG 
#26 Bruno Fernando 21ATLCHis value in both the short and long term just took a huge hit with the addition of Capela. Better options are available.
#27 Cameron Johnson 24PHOSFOne of the best shooters in this draft class, but he's not a great athlete, and isn't a great defender. Doesn't seem to have a game that translates well to fantasy.
#28 8 Ky Bowman 22GSWPG 
#29 1 Grant Williams 21BOSPFWilliams is a high IQ player who can rebound like a champ. At 6'7 he's a little undersized at PF, but he fills an immediate need for the Celtics. Keep an eye to see how he's integrated into the rotation.
#30 1 Daniel Gafford 21CHICA good rim-rummer who can protect the rim, but he has no offensive game outside of the paint. Somebody to keep an eye on this season.
#31 Carsen Edwards 22BOSPGA gunner off the bench who'll see minutes on nights when his shot is falling. Not great defensively, but Boston has been able to make it work in the past with undersized guards who know how to score.
#32 Admiral Schofield 23WASSGA versatile defender with a strong work ethic. Could get minutes towards the end of the season, so he's somebody to keep an eye on.
#33 Chuma Okeke 21ORLPFCan be a modern-day stretch 4, but Orlando is already quite deep at PF, so is opportunity will be limited in the short-term.
#34 Keldon Johnson 20SASSFHe's behind quite a few players on the depth chart in San Antonio, so his opportunity is limited in the short-term, but he has the potential to be a good 2-way player.
#35 Bol Bol 20DENCHis game translates really well to fantasy if he ever pans out. We'll have to wait and see if his body is up to playing a heavy NBA schedule, and could potentially become a good player off the bench.
#36 Romeo Langford 20BOSSGNeeds the ball to be productive, but I'm not sure how well his game translates to fantasy. Seems like his ceiling is being a low-end rotation player.
#37 Ty Jerome 22PHOPGA smart, mature player, but he'll struggle to stop NBA point guards on the defensive end.
#38 Ignas Brazdeikis 21NYKPFWill need to ride out a few seasons until New York's bevy of PFs get moved on, but he's somebody to keep an eye on to see how he plays in the limited minutes he'll eventually receive this season.
