Notes 
 Melton once again saw limited run, but he was ultra-efficient with his minutes, averaging 16.3 points, 5.5 boards, 4.5 dimes, 3.2 combined blocks/steals, and 3.0 triples per-36 minutes last season. It's unlikely he sees an uptick in minutes this season, as Memphis' backcourt is one of the most crowded in the NBA. You can roll the dice on him as a late-round flier, but you can't win your leagues on per-36 numbers.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Huerter only provides middling production in a few categories, and he's only above-average as a three-point shooter. With renewed competition for minutes this season from a (presumably) healthy De'Andre Hunter, Cam Reddish, and Bogdan Bogdanovic, Huerter profiles as more of a three-point streamer in deeper leagues. He doesn't need to be taken in standard, 12-man leagues.
