Notes 
 Melton once again saw limited run, but he was ultra-efficient with his minutes, averaging 16.3 points, 5.5 boards, 4.5 dimes, 3.2 combined blocks/steals, and 3.0 triples per-36 minutes last season. It's unlikely he sees an uptick in minutes this season, as Memphis' backcourt is one of the most crowded in the NBA. You can roll the dice on him as a late-round flier, but you can't win your leagues on per-36 numbers.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
After a miserable season in New Orleans, Bledsoe is back with the team that drafted him, and he should be in line for minutes in the mid-20's to low-30's. He'll likely slot in as the team's starting SG or play some PG for the second unit. Regardless, it's tough to trust him given his poor shooting and loss of his role as a primary facilitator.
