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.
Adam Koffler - FantasyPros
The eldest of the Ball brothers is one of the more intriguing fantasy point guards. Most of his contributions to fantasy rosters will come via rebounds, assists, and steals. He'll never be a great shooter, but he has improved his effective field goal percentage in each of his three seasons so far, finishing at a respectable 51.1% last season. He'll look to facilitate an offense that will feature last season's number one draft pick Zion Williamson and most improved player Brandon Ingram.
