Notes 
 If you're looking for points and threes late in your draft, Poole is a great target. He should be in for an even larger offensive role this season.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
The Australian wonder averaged 10.8 points, 7.4 boards, and 7.4 dimes in the NBL a season ago, and while there is a lot to love about a 6'8 PG, Giddey is very raw coming into the NBA. He's a poor shooter and sub-par defender which makes him a more valuable play in points leagues, but if he can improve his efficiency, he could become a solid contributor in 9-cat formats. Giddey's services are best suited for dynasty leagues or deep redraft leagues at this time, but he has the upside to be relevant in 12-team leagues as a rookie.
