Notes 
 The two-time MVP, reigning world champion, and Finals MVP is an easy first-round selection in fantasy drafts, but unless he can improve his awful FT shooting (sub-70% last two seasons), he's a mid-first-round type of guy. His elite scoring, rebounding, and assists are dragged down by his three-point shooting and struggles from the charity stripe. In a points league, Giannis is a no-brainer top-2 pick, but his value in categories leagues is a bit lower.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Tatum's star is burning brighter than ever heading into the new season after his electric scoring outburst to close out the season. Though Boston exited in the first round, it wasn't for lack of trying on Tatum's part. He scored 122 points over Boston's final three playoff games, and from May 18 - May 28, he scored 50 points twice. Tatum is coming off his best season as a pro, averaging 26/7/4 with 2.9 triples, and we haven't seen his best basketball yet. He's well worth a first-round pick.
