Notes 
 Beal finished with a career-high 31.3 points per game in 20-21, narrowly missing his second-straight scoring title while being edged out by Steph Curry. He understandably took a step back in the assists department with Russell Westbrook on the team, but Beal still ended the year with a 31/4/4 line that included 2.2 triples and 1.2 steals to go with elite shooting. Those numbers were good for a top-12 finish in per-game average, and with Westbrook gone, expect an uptick in assists and potentially a new career high in scoring. Beal is a first-round guy, though he's often being drafted in the early second round, making him a clear value selection.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Every year we doubt CP3, and every year he delivers. Last season, Paul led the Suns to the NBA Finals behind a staggeringly strong regular season in which he averaged 16.4 points and posted a 4-1 assist-to-turnover margin. He's an elite shooter, defender, facilitator, and rebounder who doesn't hurt you in any category except blocks. There's no reason to expect a precipitous drop-off this season.
