Notes 
 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.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Fresh off signing a max extension, Butler will look to continue his strong play in Miami this season. He averaged 21/7/7 last season with 2.1 steals and just 2.1 turnovers. In two seasons with the Heat, he's averaged 6.8 boards and 6.5 dimes. While the assist numbers will likely take a hit with Kyle Lowry on the roster, Butler shouldn't fall off enough in that category to drop outside the second round of drafts. He's not a three-point shooter, but he'll provide strong contributions nearly everywhere else, including elite steal totals. Current ADP suggests Butler is being undervalued, and if you can land him around pick 20 or later, you've got yourself real value.
