Notes 
 As long as he can remain healthy, Russell has plenty of appeal in the seventh round of fantasy drafts as a solid source of points, threes, and steals. Despite concerns over health and usage, Russell's ability as a facilitator and elite long-range shooter offer a solid floor.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Hield is going to face plenty of competition for minutes in Sacramento's crowded backcourt, but he's one of the league's preeminent three-point shooters who's able to contribute just enough in other categories to remain in the top-100.
