Notes 
 Per-game output is incredible, as his two-man numbers with James Harden. Injuries are the only thing you may have to worry about, as well as him taking fewer threes.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
He's a player whose value is solely based on him having the ball in his hands. Well, there are two other players to share that ball with this year, which hurts his value.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 For most of the regular season, Joel Embiid was the clear betting favorite for MVP. The 28 year old Philadelphia center led the league in scoring at 30.6 PPG, while ranking fifth with 11.7 rebounds per game. Embiid averaged the most free-throw attempts per game (11.8), while shooting an impressive 81.4 percent from the foul line. Embiid brings 2.6 blocks/steals per game and ranked third in PER (Player Efficiency Rating) behind only Jokic and Antetokounmpo.
Mike Randle - FTN
Brandon Ingram is an elite professional scorer. Entering his seventh professional season, Ingram has averaged at least 22 PPG in three consectutive years. He reached a career high with 5.6 APG, while maintainting a solid 46.1% FG. Ingram took a step forward in the postseason, leading New Orleans with 27 PPG. That could be a precursor of things to come, even with the return of Zion Williamson.
