Notes 
 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.
Adam Koffler - FantasyPros
Porzingis had a strong showing in his first season with Dallas, averaging 20.4 points and a career-high 9.5 rebounds per game with his new team. He and MVP candidate Luka Doncic combine for one of the most productive fantasy duos in the NBA. Unfortunately, Porzingis has missed significant time with injuries every season of his career and will be out until at least January this season as he recovers from offseason surgery to repair a knee injury he suffered during the Mav's first playoff game in the bubble.
