Notes 
 All Giannis Antetokounmpo did in 2012-2022 was average a career-high 29.9 PPG, with 11.6 RPG, and 5.8 APG, while shooting 55.3 percent from the field. Antetokounmpo even increased his free throw shooting for the third consecutive year to 72.2 percent. While his 29.8 percent 3P average puts him a spot below Jokic, his 2.5 combined blocks/steals per game futher solidifies his incredible nightly floor. Antetokounmpo led the league in fantasy points per game in both FanDuel and DraftKings scoring.
Mike Randle - BettingPros
Jayson Tatum finished with the fourth-most points and sixth-most fantasy points while tallying career-highs in points (27.9), rebounds (8.0), and assists (4.4). He is a solid free-throw shooter (85.3%) but saw his accuracy from deep dip (35.3%). Volume is Tatum's friend, as he attempts the most field goals of any players last season (1564). He is one of the safest picks fantasy, as his only competition for offensive production is Jaylen Brown. The addition of Malcolm Brodgon at point guard should improve his efficiency and possibly scoring average.
