Notes 
 Chris Paul's arrival in Phoenix should do wonders for Ayton's fantasy value this season. The former 2018 first overall pick played just 38 games a season ago, but averaged 18.2 points (54.6 FG%), 11.5 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks in 32.5 minutes per game. With CP3 running the offense, a healthy Ayton should have no problem averaging 20 and 10 this season, and could even improve his FG% with more high-percentage looks. Don't overlook Ayton in the 2nd round of drafts.
