Notes 
 What more can you say about a big who can score, rebound, and assist at a high level while shooting efficiently, providing quality defense, and posing as a triple-double threat? Adebayo is all of these things, and despite the absence of a three-point game, he should be locked and loaded as a second-round draft pick with first-round upside.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Coming off a highly-productive postseason, Ayton will be a prized early-round center in fantasy drafts Expect another double-double average with low turnovers, high FG%, and decent defensive stats. Ayton should have some extra incentive in a contract year as he looks for his first big pay day.
