Notes 
 It's been a rough couple of years for Towns, who has appeared in just 85 games over the last two seasons. Despite injuries and family tragedy, KAT still averaged at least 24/10/4 with one at least two triples and one steal in that span. As long as he's healthy, the big man is a strong contender for a top-5 finish given his ability to score, rebound, shoot efficiently, and fire from beyond the arc. He's got the unique skill set of a stretch five which is so valuable in the early rounds of drafts.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
The two-time MVP, reigning world champion, and Finals MVP is an easy first-round selection in fantasy drafts, but unless he can improve his awful FT shooting (sub-70% last two seasons), he's a mid-first-round type of guy. His elite scoring, rebounding, and assists are dragged down by his three-point shooting and struggles from the charity stripe. In a points league, Giannis is a no-brainer top-2 pick, but his value in categories leagues is a bit lower.
