Notes 
 Sabonis made huge strides in his fourth NBA season and saw big gains in nearly every statistical category. He averaged a solid double-double with 18.5 points and 12.4 rebounds per game. His 50 double-doubles on the season trailed only Giannis Antetokounmpo (56) and Hassaan Whiteside (51). That kind of consistency can help carry a fantasy roster through the long grind that is the NBA season.
Aaron Larson - FantasyPros
After averaging 17.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 6.6 assists, and 1.9 steals in 36 minutes per game, VanVleet was in the running for Most Improved Player of the Year in 2019-20. With Kawhi Leonard in Los Angeles, FVV was called upon to take on a much larger role on the offense and didn't disappoint. He's quickly become one of the cornerstones of a very well-coached Raptors team, so much so that Toronto decided to reward him with a four-year, $85M contract this offseason. With Kyle Lowry turning 35 mid-way through the upcoming season, there's a whole lot of room for VanVleet to continue to grow. The only knock on his game could be his relatively low field goal percentage (41.3 percent), but that's bound to happen when you're attempting almost seven 3-pointers per game. There's no reason FVV can't be a top-30 fantasy asset in 2020-21.
