Notes 
 Still somehow overlooked in real life and fantasy. Best to punt FT% if you're taking Giannis.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
The drama is done, which means another Easy Money year from the Easy Money Sniper. He is a year older, so injuries are the only real potential concern.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 All Giannis Antetokounmpo did in 2012-2022 was average a career-high 29.9 PPG, with 11.6 RPG, and 5.8 APG, while shooting 55.3 percent from the field. Antetokounmpo even increased his free throw shooting for the third consecutive year to 72.2 percent. While his 29.8 percent 3P average puts him a spot below Jokic, his 2.5 combined blocks/steals per game futher solidifies his incredible nightly floor. Antetokounmpo led the league in fantasy points per game in both FanDuel and DraftKings scoring.
Mike Randle - FTN
While only playing 87 games the past two season, Kevin Durant has still maintained incredible efficiency. His 29.9 PPG average ranks third-best in his 14-year career, with his 6.4 APG mark ranking tops during his NBA tenure. While the 33-year-old Durant is no longer a Top 5 fantasy option, shooting over 50 percent from the field with over 20 attempts equates to a Top 10 fantasy option in any season.
