Notes 
 Jaylen Brown signed a four-year contract extension with the Celtics and posted career highs across the board. He averaged 20.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.3 threes over 57 games. Celtics' PG Kemba Walker will be out until mid-January after receiving a stem cell injection in his left knee. When Kemba is off the court, Brown was second in usage rate (26.0%) only behind franchise player Jayson Tatum (30.1%) in 2019-20. Brown will once again have a prominent role in the Celtics offense and will produce night in and night out. The current ADP consensus for Brown is 59, but expect this number to rise as the NBA season draws closer.

JJJ is going to be out "a minute" according to Grizzlies executive vice president of basketball operations Zach Kleiman, but that shouldn't stop you from giving the rising star big man a look in your upcoming fantasy drafts. So long as your league has an IR roster spot, you can stash Jackson Jr. and have a valuable asset come the middle of the 2020-21 season. In 57 games a season ago, JJJ averaged 17.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.6 blocks, and 2.5 3PM in just under 29 minutes per game. The 3-pointers are an added bonus for a guy that is eligible at the center position, but the lack of rebounds is a bit of a concern. Additionally, Jackson Jr. has had trouble with staying on the court due to foul trouble in his first two NBA seasons. If he can stay out of foul trouble and play over 30 minutes per game, we could see JJJ increase his averages even more in his third-year in the league. Consider him a top-75 player this season, but realize he may not contribute for your squad right away as he recovers from offseason knee surgery.
