Notes 
 Ja Morant was terrific in his first-year campaign with the Grizzlies by winning the 2019 Rookie of the Year Award. He averaged 17.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.9 triples while shooting 47.7 percent from the floor across 31.0 minutes in 2019-20. The Grizzlies will rely on Morant to shoulder the offensive load and once again carry them to the playoffs. Morant will look build on his strong rookie campaign and is expected to go in the top-25 in upcoming fantasy drafts.
Brad Camara - FantasyPros
If you only look at Muray's entire stat line from 2019-20, it looks like he may have plateaued as an above average point guard who averages 18.5 points and almost five assists per game. But we must not forget what he was able to do in the Orlando Bubble postseason, when Murray showcased his true superstar ability night-in-and-night-out. In 19 playoff games, he averaged 26.5 points (50.5 FG%), 4.8 rebounds, 6.6 assists, and 3.3 3PM per game. Those averages resemble guys like Kyrie Irving and Devin Booker, who are bound to be top-15 fantasy assets in 2020-21. Murray may not be able to sustain such production for an entire season, but he certainly showed he's got the capability to put up some monster performances (two 50-point games in the 2019-20 playoffs). He could be a steal in the middle rounds of your fantasy draft.
