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
I'm going to be targeting SGA in every league I play in this season. I think he could realistically finish as a top-25 fantasy asset in 2020-21. As a member of the Thunder in his second season, Gilgeous-Alexander exponentially improved upon his rookie season output with the Clippers. He averaged 19.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.1 steals, and just 1.9 turnovers in almost 35 minutes per game last season, doubling his points scored and rebounds from 2018-19 with the Clippers. Now with Chris Paul, Danilo Gallinari, and Dennis Schroder all on different teams, SGA becomes the focal point on offense for the Thunder. General Manager Sam Presti recently told ESPN's Royce Young, "we're really kind of clearing the way for him [Gilgeous-Alexander] to expand his game, to be on the ball full time." Of note, SGA's production last season was on a usage rate of 23.7%. That number went up to 31.1% with Paul, Gallinari, and Schroder off the floor. Sky's the limit for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander this season.
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.
