Notes 
 Fresh off a monster contract extension, Giannis Antetokounmpo appears prepped to lead the league in usage rate again, making his ceiling as a fantasy asset sky-high. The back-to-back MVP's ability to accumulate top-five numbers in points and rebounds puts him in a tier of his own. He's also displaying an upward trajectory having just set career-highs in both categories with 29.5 points and 13.6 rebounds per game. Although his efficiency and free throw percentage can hurt your team some weeks, he shouldn't make it past the fifth overall pick in your draft.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
Trae Young exploded onto the scene last year and finished fourth in scoring (29.6 points) and second in assists (9.3) per game. His 205 made three-pointers were sixth-most in the league and he did it at a 36.1% clip. If he's able to improve his shooting heading into his third year, there's no reason to expect him to finish outside the top-three in scoring.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
 The back-to-back reigning MVP will remain an elite fantasy force this season. Antetokounmpo has impressively raised both his average points and rebounds per game over every season of his seven-year career, even though he's seen his minutes on the court actually decline over the past three seasons. That might not be the case this year if the Bucks aren't able to coast as easily through their regular season schedule. He led the NBA with a hearty 37.5% usage rate and is a triple-double threat every time he steps on the court. His free-throw and three-point percentage still leave something to be desired, which keeps him outside of the consensus top-three
Aaron Larson - FantasyPros
The Atlanta Hawks spared no expense this offseason in putting an extremely formidable team around second-year All-Star PG Trae Young. By adding guys like Bogdan Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari, the Hawks are signaling to their young core that they are going all-in to surround them with the talent they need to succeed as early as this season. Last season, Young budded into a superstar right in front of our eyes, finishing fourth in scoring (29.6 ppg) and second in assists (9.3 apg), trailing only LeBron James in that category. While the scoring numbers could come down with a plethora of options to put the ball in the basket, it's not out of the realm of possibility that Young averages over 10 assists per game this season. He's also only missed a total of eight games in two seasons. In a world of "DNP-rest," Young is as safe as they come in the middle to later part of the first round in 2020-21.
