Notes 
 Prove-it year for Davis after being limited the last couple of years. Still a per-game beast but you don't know how many games you'll get from him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
A boring, high-volume center as long as he's in San Antonio. The bad part is that he's a likely trade candidate this season, which could tank his value depending on the landing spot.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 I struggle with ranking Anthony Davis because he has only played 76 regular season games over the past two years. Still only 29 years old, he barely missed averaging a double-double with 23.2 PPG and 9.9 RPG. Davis adds even more production on FanDuel or DraftKings DFS scoring, bringing 3.5 steals/blocks per contest. He averaged 35.3 minutes per game, his highest in five seasons. However, Davis did see a drop in free-throw efficiency (71.3%, lowest in his career) and 3P marksmanship (18.6%). When Davis is healthy, he produces like a Top 10 fantasy option every, single, night.
Mike Randle - FTN
Jakob Poeltl enters 2021-2022 in an interesting situation. The 26-year-old, 7-foot-1 center should see a big scoring boost on a Spurs team that appears to be rebuilding without Dejounte Murray. Poeltl's 13.5 PPG and 9.3 RPG should be his floor, unless San Antonio prefers to tank in the second half of the season. Still, there is a lot of upside to a young center that has raised his points, minutes, and rebounds per game in four straight seasons.
