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
The No. 1 pick in this year's draft should slot in immediately as the Piston's top scorer and playmaker after an impressive season at Oklahoma State. In his only season with the Cowboys, Cunningham averaged 20.1 points, 6.2 boards, 3.5 dimes, 2.3 triples, and 1.6 steals on 43/40/84 shooting splits. He's got the skills to provide top-75 value immediately.
