Notes 
 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.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Holmes parlayed his career 2020-21 season into a four-year extension, and there's no reason to believe he can't post similar numbers in 21-22. The big man provides fantasy managers with solid scoring and rebounding, elite FG% and blocks, and few turnovers. Taking him as a top-30 guy wouldn't be a reach, and Holmes' ADP is far below this value. He should be a great value on draft day.
