Notes 
 Ball took a leap forward as a shooter last season, nailing a career-best 3.1 triples per game to go with his well-rounded averages. Ball is an effective rebounder and facilitator capable of posting triple-doubles any time he takes the floor. As long as he can maintain his elite long-range shooting with Chicago, he's got a chance for top-50 numbers.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
DeRozan's scoring and facilitating are sure to regress with Chicago, but he can still be a 20/4/4 guy, which is just fine for fantasy managers. DeRozan doesn't have a three-point game to speak of, but he does enough elsewhere to warrant top-70 consideration.
