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
Fresh off signing a max extension, Butler will look to continue his strong play in Miami this season. He averaged 21/7/7 last season with 2.1 steals and just 2.1 turnovers. In two seasons with the Heat, he's averaged 6.8 boards and 6.5 dimes. While the assist numbers will likely take a hit with Kyle Lowry on the roster, Butler shouldn't fall off enough in that category to drop outside the second round of drafts. He's not a three-point shooter, but he'll provide strong contributions nearly everywhere else, including elite steal totals. Current ADP suggests Butler is being undervalued, and if you can land him around pick 20 or later, you've got yourself real value.
