Notes 
 Atlanta loaded up in the offseason, and Collins unsurprisingly took a nosedive in nearly every category. Still, there was a long way to fall from last year's gaudy numbers, which ranked him 9th in per-game average. He fell just outside the top-50 in 20-21, but regardless of counting stats, he's got a sturdy floor thanks to elite shooting and low turnovers.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Morant is without a doubt one of the highest-upside young talents in the NBA, but is that upside worth an early fourth-round fantasy pick? Morant finished last season outside the top-100 in per-game value thanks to a decrease in his already-poor shooting and negligible increases in scoring, rebounds, and assists. There's a lot to love about a guy who averaged 19/7/4 a season ago, though he has some glaring weaknesses in defensive stats, turnovers, threes, and shooting percentages that make him a risky option in Year 3. Memphis has a backcourt loaded with talent in the likes of Dillon Brooks and De'Anthony Melton and talent across the roster at every position. While Morant will obviously have the ball in his hand more often than not, he's far from the only playmaker on the team. He'll need to clean up his turnovers and improve his efficiency this season if he hopes to live up to the fantasy hype that's been heaped upon him.
