Notes 
 Vuc was one of the biggest fantasy surprises of last season, ending the year with first-round value thanks to some bonkers center stats. The big man posted a career-high 23.4 points while grabbing 11.7 boards, dishing 3.8 assists and hitting 2.5 triples. He's an elite rebounder, shooter, and three-point specialist who rarely turns the ball over. He might take a step back in scoring thanks to the Bulls' addition of DeMar DeRozan, but Vuc is a safe pick in the second round due to his strong production in non-scoring categories.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
After an embarrassing performance in Philly's second-round loss and tumultous offseason, Simmons' stock is in the toilet. Still, it's tough to entirely fade a PG who racks up rebounds, assists, and steals in droves. Simmons' knocks are the same as they ever were, and his value takes a hit thanks to poor FT% and the complete absence of a long-range game. It's tough to pin down his value until we find out if and where he's playing. Simmons has begun his holdout, and even if you want to take a huge gamble on him, I wouldn't make that selection inside the top-125.
