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
Luka Doncic led the league with triple-doubles (17) throughout his sophomore campaign and finished third in assists per game (8.8), sixth in scoring per game (28.8), and 17th in rebounds per game (9.4). At just 21 years old, it's crazy to think that Doncic can still improve those numbers heading into his third season. He should be a top-three pick in all formats and has a good chance to finish as the top fantasy producer this season.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
  Coming off an MVP-caliber season, Doncic should be ready to take the next step forward in his third season. He averaged 28.9 points, 9.4 boards, and 8.9 assists and earned All-NBA First-Team honors in the process. His shooting and turnovers ding his value slightly in category leagues, but there's legitimate argument for him to go No. 1 in points leagues this season.
