Notes 
 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.
