Notes 
 Heading into his fifth season, Anthony-Towns is coming off career-highs in points (26.5) and assists (4.4). Although he saw a slight drop in his rebounds (10.8) he still finished seventh overall. You're betting on his health being better after he's seen an increase in missed games over the last two seasons. Hopefully, the midseason addition of his friend D'Angelo Russell will help Anthony-Towns to play through some of those nagging injuries that sidelined him in 2019-2020.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
Chris Paul's arrival in Phoenix should do wonders for Ayton's fantasy value this season. The former 2018 first overall pick played just 38 games a season ago, but averaged 18.2 points (54.6 FG%), 11.5 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks in 32.5 minutes per game. With CP3 running the offense, a healthy Ayton should have no problem averaging 20 and 10 this season, and could even improve his FG% with more high-percentage looks. Don't overlook Ayton in the 2nd round of drafts.
Adam Koffler - FantasyPros
 Towns was on pace for a massive fantasy season last year before nagging injuries sidelined him for the majority of the winter and spring. He averaged career-highs in points per game (26.5), assists per game (4.4), and most impressively, three-pointers per game (3.3). He also adds enough blocks (1.2) and steals (.9) to be considered one of the best all-around contributors in the NBA, something that isn't easy to find at the center position.
Aaron Larson - FantasyPros
 
 While fantasy managers might remember Towns' 2019-20 season primarily for his missed games, he actually had a monster season. KAT averaged career highs in points (26.5), assists (4.4), and threes (3.3) while pulling down at least 10 boards for the fifth straight season. As long as he's healthy for the 2020-21 season, he should be an easy top-5 selection in both points and category leagues due to his tremendous stat-stuffing abilities.
