Notes 
 The eldest of the Ball brothers is one of the more intriguing fantasy point guards. Most of his contributions to fantasy rosters will come via rebounds, assists, and steals. He'll never be a great shooter, but he has improved his effective field goal percentage in each of his three seasons so far, finishing at a respectable 51.1% last season. He'll look to facilitate an offense that will feature last season's number one draft pick Zion Williamson and most improved player Brandon Ingram.
