Notes 
 Had his offseason not been surrounded by drama and trade rumors, James Harden would be a top-three pick, but unfortunately, the Rockets' long-term plans are muddying the waters in projecting where Harden will play this year. His streak as a three-year scoring champion could easily be extended this year, especially with Russell Westbrook out of the picture. The risk of not playing this year is the only reason he isn't higher in these rankings.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
After six straight seasons of scoring averages in the 20's, Lilliard finally cracked the 30-point average with exactly 30.0 on the season, good for third-highest in the league. At 30 years old, Lilliard is in his prime and should see similar success this year. He also averaged 8.0 assists per game in 2019-2020, 1.1 more than his previous career-high. Lilliard has entered superstar status and should provide top-10 returns in fantasy leagues this season.
