Notes 
 Over the last five seasons, the big man has averaged 14.6 points, 12.7 boards, and 2.4 blocks while shooting 66.4% from the field. He won't give you any threes and lacks in FT% and assists, but he more than makes up for those deficiencies with league-leading shooting efficiency and rebounding, elite blocks, and limited turnovers. He's one of the safest picks in all of fantasy hoops thanks to his year-in consistency from the center position.
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.
