Notes 
  Fox's usage sky-rocketed in 2019-20, and oddly enough, his field goal percentage also jumped up to 48.0 percent from 45.8 percent in 2018-19. Fresh off a new five-year, $163M max extension and with Bogdan Bogdanovic now in Atlanta, this backcourt is all his and he could take an even bigger leap in 2020-21. If he can keep his field goal percentage up and his turnovers down (3.1 last season), we could be looking at one of the top fantasy point guards in the NBA this season. 23 points, eight assists, and two steals per game doesn't feel too far-fetched of a proposition for the franchise point guard. Don't let Fox slip through your hands in the third round.
