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
Nikola Jokic regressed in every statistical category (points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals) last year from his 2018-2019 campaign but still finished top-30 across the board and with 13 triple-doubles (second-best in the league). The reason I have him ranked this high is because of his consistency over the last three seasons. He's averaging 19.5 rebounds, 10.4 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.7 steals over a three-year stretch. That type of production would warrant a top-five pick and there's no reason to expect him to slow down at just age 25.
