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
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
 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.
