Notes 
 Fresh off a monster contract extension, Giannis Antetokounmpo appears prepped to lead the league in usage rate again, making his ceiling as a fantasy asset sky-high. The back-to-back MVP's ability to accumulate top-five numbers in points and rebounds puts him in a tier of his own. He's also displaying an upward trajectory having just set career-highs in both categories with 29.5 points and 13.6 rebounds per game. Although his efficiency and free throw percentage can hurt your team some weeks, he shouldn't make it past the fifth overall pick in your draft.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
After six straight seasons of scoring averages in the 20's, Lilliard finally cracked the 30-point average with exactly 30.0 on the season, good for third-highest in the league. At 30 years old, Lilliard is in his prime and should see similar success this year. He also averaged 8.0 assists per game in 2019-2020, 1.1 more than his previous career-high. Lilliard has entered superstar status and should provide top-10 returns in fantasy leagues this season.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
 The back-to-back reigning MVP will remain an elite fantasy force this season. Antetokounmpo has impressively raised both his average points and rebounds per game over every season of his seven-year career, even though he's seen his minutes on the court actually decline over the past three seasons. That might not be the case this year if the Bucks aren't able to coast as easily through their regular season schedule. He led the NBA with a hearty 37.5% usage rate and is a triple-double threat every time he steps on the court. His free-throw and three-point percentage still leave something to be desired, which keeps him outside of the consensus top-three
