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
Fresh off a monster contract extension, Giannis Antetokounmpo appears prepped to lead the league in usage rate again, making his ceiling as a fantasy asset sky-high. The back-to-back MVP's ability to accumulate top-five numbers in points and rebounds puts him in a tier of his own. He's also displaying an upward trajectory having just set career-highs in both categories with 29.5 points and 13.6 rebounds per game. Although his efficiency and free throw percentage can hurt your team some weeks, he shouldn't make it past the fifth overall pick in your draft.
Dave Kluge - 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
The back-to-back reigning MVP will remain an elite fantasy force this season. Antetokounmpo has impressively raised both his average points and rebounds per game over every season of his seven-year career, even though he's seen his minutes on the court actually decline over the past three seasons. That might not be the case this year if the Bucks aren't able to coast as easily through their regular season schedule. He led the NBA with a hearty 37.5% usage rate and is a triple-double threat every time he steps on the court. His free-throw and three-point percentage still leave something to be desired, which keeps him outside of the consensus top-three
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.
