Notes 
 Fresh off signing a max extension, Butler will look to continue his strong play in Miami this season. He averaged 21/7/7 last season with 2.1 steals and just 2.1 turnovers. In two seasons with the Heat, he's averaged 6.8 boards and 6.5 dimes. While the assist numbers will likely take a hit with Kyle Lowry on the roster, Butler shouldn't fall off enough in that category to drop outside the second round of drafts. He's not a three-point shooter, but he'll provide strong contributions nearly everywhere else, including elite steal totals. Current ADP suggests Butler is being undervalued, and if you can land him around pick 20 or later, you've got yourself real value.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Every year we doubt CP3, and every year he delivers. Last season, Paul led the Suns to the NBA Finals behind a staggeringly strong regular season in which he averaged 16.4 points and posted a 4-1 assist-to-turnover margin. He's an elite shooter, defender, facilitator, and rebounder who doesn't hurt you in any category except blocks. There's no reason to expect a precipitous drop-off this season.
