Notes 
 After six straight seasons of scoring averages in the 20's, Lilliard finally cracked the 30-point average with exactly 30.0 on the season, good for third-highest in the league. At 30 years old, Lilliard is in his prime and should see similar success this year. He also averaged 8.0 assists per game in 2019-2020, 1.1 more than his previous career-high. Lilliard has entered superstar status and should provide top-10 returns in fantasy leagues this season.
