Notes 
 Tatum's star is burning brighter than ever heading into the new season after his electric scoring outburst to close out the season. Though Boston exited in the first round, it wasn't for lack of trying on Tatum's part. He scored 122 points over Boston's final three playoff games, and from May 18 - May 28, he scored 50 points twice. Tatum is coming off his best season as a pro, averaging 26/7/4 with 2.9 triples, and we haven't seen his best basketball yet. He's well worth a first-round pick.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Davis was arguably last season's biggest bust thanks to career lows in points (21.8), rebounds (7.9), blocks (1.6), and FG% (49.1). AD appeared in a career-low 36 games thanks to lingering injuries, so his health almost certainly played a role in the lacking production. Even after the disappointing campaign, Davis finds himself as an early second-round guy, but it's unclear how much he can bring to the table after the Lakers brought in Russell Westbrook, an array of shooters. The good news is that Davis is likely to play more at center rather than power forward which should be a boon to his fantasy value.
