Notes 
 Anthony Davis is coming off his worst season as a rebounder since his 2012-2013 rookie campaign. His field goal percentage was also the second-worst of his career at just 50.3 percent. This seems like an opportunity to buy-low on a player that can easily finish as the top fantasy producer this season. Even in a "down year" Davis logged 26.1 points (10th in the league) and 9.3 rebounds (18th in the league). I expect the Lakers big man to develop further after his first full season with LeBron James and increase his scoring and rebounding.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
Heading into his fifth season, Anthony-Towns is coming off career-highs in points (26.5) and assists (4.4). Although he saw a slight drop in his rebounds (10.8) he still finished seventh overall. You're betting on his health being better after he's seen an increase in missed games over the last two seasons. Hopefully, the midseason addition of his friend D'Angelo Russell will help Anthony-Towns to play through some of those nagging injuries that sidelined him in 2019-2020.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
  Towns was on pace for a massive fantasy season last year before nagging injuries sidelined him for the majority of the winter and spring. He averaged career-highs in points per game (26.5), assists per game (4.4), and most impressively, three-pointers per game (3.3). He also adds enough blocks (1.2) and steals (.9) to be considered one of the best all-around contributors in the NBA, something that isn't easy to find at the center position.
Aaron Larson - FantasyPros
  While fantasy managers might remember Towns' 2019-20 season primarily for his missed games, he actually had a monster season. KAT averaged career highs in points (26.5), assists (4.4), and threes (3.3) while pulling down at least 10 boards for the fifth straight season. As long as he's healthy for the 2020-21 season, he should be an easy top-5 selection in both points and category leagues due to his tremendous stat-stuffing abilities.
