Notes 
 We haven't seen Kevin Durant play in over a year and have yet to see how he'll fare with teammate Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn. It's very likely that Kevin Durant can return to form and average high-20's in the scoring department again, but the risk here should push him into the second round. In category-scoring leagues, he's a bit more valuable as his field goal and free throw percentage won't hurt you. We haven't seen him average over 6.8 rebounds per game since the 2016-2017 player so you're banking on him being a top scorer again when you draft him.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
Bradley Beal quietly finished the season with 30.5 points per game, second-highest in the league and a personal career-best. In addition to his step forward as a scorer, Beal logged a career-high 6.1 assists per game. With Russell Westbrook joining the team, it can certainly cut into Beal's production, but I expect Beal to lead the team in scoring as Westbrook plays second fiddle. At just 27-years-old Beal is still developing as a player and we can see him reach superstar status here in his ninth year as a pro.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
 Durant is one of the most challenging players to project this season. We haven't seen the 13-year veteran in an NBA game since he ruptured his Achilles tendon in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals. When he's on the floor he's been a model of consistency as one of the best pure scorers of his era, averaging 27 points per game for his career. It remains to be seen how he'll look returning from the serious injury and leading the new-look Nets alongside Kyrie Irving.
Aaron Larson - FantasyPros
Beal has been a solid fantasy option for most of his eight-year professional career, but he erupted last season. He did the best he could to put a broken down Washington team on his back, scoring over 1,000 points more than any of his Wizard teammates. He trailed only James Harden in scoring average, racking 30.5 points per game. His role will likely diminish with the recent addition of usage hog Russell Westbrook, but Beal still figures to be a top fantasy option at guard.
