Notes 
 The biggest risk when drafting Kawhi Leonard is his load management. Without suffering any major injuries, Leonard suited up for just 57 games last year. When he plays, you're getting a player that'll churn out top-10 scoring performances almost every night as well as top-five value in steals. In addition, his 7.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game were good for 33rd and 36th in the league, respectively. He deserves to be picked in the first round, but make sure to have someone to plug in for his inevitable healthy scratches.
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.
