Notes 
 Nurkic is another example of a skilled passing big, and as such, his skillset is highly valued for fantasy hoops. Health is a clear concern, but if he can remain on the court, Nurkic has second-round upside given the lack of depth at center in Portland.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
No fantasy player was more frustrating than Boucher last season. He would post a monster game then be relegated to the bench, then repeat the cycle over and over again. The addition of Khem Birch complicated matters further, but heading into the new season, Boucher remains the higher-upside player. He'll likely cause some headaches, but his ceiling is too high to fade.
