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
For most of the regular season, Joel Embiid was the clear betting favorite for MVP. The 28 year old Philadelphia center led the league in scoring at 30.6 PPG, while ranking fifth with 11.7 rebounds per game. Embiid averaged the most free-throw attempts per game (11.8), while shooting an impressive 81.4 percent from the foul line. Embiid brings 2.6 blocks/steals per game and ranked third in PER (Player Efficiency Rating) behind only Jokic and Antetokounmpo.
