Notes 
 FVV averaged averaged 19.6 points, 6.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 1.7 steals, and 3.3 triples across 52 games in yet another strong season in 20-21. Kyle Lowry has taken his talents to South Beach, which could lead to an increase in scoring and facilitating opportunities for the Wichita State product and a potential top-15 season. He's a liability in FG%, but otherwise, VanVleet is capable of providing huge numbers across the board.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
After winning Rookie of the Year honors behind strong all-around stats, the sky's the limit for Ball in Year 2. In 32 starts, he averaged 17.9 points, 5.8 boards, 6.1 dimes, 2.1 triples, and 1.6 steals across 31 minutes per contest. He proved himself as a shooter and playmaker, and a step forward in any category would boost his value significantly. He could push for second-round value in his first full year as the starting PG.
