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 - FTN
When he plays, he dominates. Yet, LeBron James has only played more than 56 games once in the past four seasons. He still posted 30.3 PPG, his highest average since 2005-2006, along with 8.2 RPG, 6.2 APG, and almost 2.5 blocks/steals per contest. James also needed to carry the Lakers, recording his highest minutes per game average (37.2) since 2016-2017. It's hard to see him reaching 60 games, which certainly hurts your weekly fantasy upside. But when he's on the court, it's an likely Top 5 nighly stat line.
