Notes 
 Last season's Most Improved Player going from league-winner to bust? I'm afraid so. Randle led the Knicks in scoring, rebounds, and assists last season while rocking a 28.5% usage rate. That usage and those gaudy stats that made him such a valuable fantasy player are sure to take a dip in 2021-22. After relying on the likes of Alec Burks, Elfrid Payton, and Reggie Bullock for heavy minutes as playmakers last season, New York added Kemba Walker and Evan Fournier for an instant backcourt upgrade. Mitchell Robinson appeared in just 31 games last season but is expected to be healthy to start the season. After a spectacular regular season in which he led the NBA in minutes, Randle appeared fatigued in the playoffs, shooting just 29.8% from the floor and 33.3% from deep. After inking him to a massive, four-year extension, the Knicks are likely to take it easy on their franchise cornerstone, resulting in a decline in production this season. He'll have a tough time living up to his lofty ADP.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
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.
