Notes 
 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
He's another year older, and we know that Jimmy Buckets really appears during the playoffs. You have to worry about how many games he plays.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 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.
Mike Randle - FTN
Jimmy Butler is 32 years old, and has failed to reach 60 regular season games played since 2016-2017. However, when he plays he is a fantasy machine. Butler is a box scorer stuffer that has averaged over 38 FPPG in each of the past three seasons. He remains the clear top option on an NBA Championship-caliber Miami team. Few players in the Top 20 can match is 2.5 steals/blocks per game while carrying 30 PPG nightly upside.
