Notes 
 Per-game output is incredible, as his two-man numbers with James Harden. Injuries are the only thing you may have to worry about, as well as him taking fewer threes.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Wiggins showed out last year, but we aren't drafting last year's production. He remains a frustrating player to roster in fantasy.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 For most of the regular season, Joel Embiid was the clear betting favorite for MVP. The 28 year old Philadelphia center led the league in scoring at 30.6 PPG, while ranking fifth with 11.7 rebounds per game. Embiid averaged the most free-throw attempts per game (11.8), while shooting an impressive 81.4 percent from the foul line. Embiid brings 2.6 blocks/steals per game and ranked third in PER (Player Efficiency Rating) behind only Jokic and Antetokounmpo.
Mike Randle - FTN
Andrew Wiggins was a catalyst for the Golden State Warriors championship, averaging 18.8 PPG, 8.8 RPG, and an eye-opening 3.0 steals/blocks per game against Boston. The key to his fantasy value is determining if that is the beginning of a more productive regular season, or just a finals anomaly. Wiggins appears to have a capped fantasy ceiling while playing alongside Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. However, his career-best 39.3% 3P efficiency gives hope the best is yet to come for the 27-year-old champion.
