Notes 
 Bradley Beal quietly finished the season with 30.5 points per game, second-highest in the league and a personal career-best. In addition to his step forward as a scorer, Beal logged a career-high 6.1 assists per game. With Russell Westbrook joining the team, it can certainly cut into Beal's production, but I expect Beal to lead the team in scoring as Westbrook plays second fiddle. At just 27-years-old Beal is still developing as a player and we can see him reach superstar status here in his ninth year as a pro.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
Don't get me wrong, I think Irving is one of the most talented players in the NBA, but that doesn't necessarily mean I'd feel comfortable spending a second round pick on him this season. We're talking about a guy who has missed over 27% of regular season games throughout his 9-year career in a league where "DNP-rest" nights are becoming more and more prevalent for the league's top players. Now add Kevin Durant to the mix in Brooklyn, a player who will command 16-20 shots per game, and I just can't fathom spending up on Irving. I'd much rather take a chance on an ascending player like Fred VanVleet a whole two rounds later.
Adam Koffler - FantasyPros
 Beal has been a solid fantasy option for most of his eight-year professional career, but he erupted last season. He did the best he could to put a broken down Washington team on his back, scoring over 1,000 points more than any of his Wizard teammates. He trailed only James Harden in scoring average, racking 30.5 points per game. His role will likely diminish with the recent addition of usage hog Russell Westbrook, but Beal still figures to be a top fantasy option at guard.
