Notes 
  Rudy Gobert finished his seventh season in Utah with a career-high 13.5 rebounds per game, good for fourth in the league. He also had his sixth consecutive season with at least 2.0 blocks per game and finished last year with the sixth-most in the league. Those stats are pesky to accumulate in fantasy basketball leagues and Gobert offers a solid floor for both categories. In addition, he's coming off 15.1 points, the second-highest of his career and a solid total for someone typically labeled as a defender.
