Notes 
 We can't deny James, but the injuries seem to be catching up to him. Elite numbers still.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
KPJ quietly came on late last season and helps with points, threes, and assists. With Jabari and Green - as well as Eason - Porter will have to be efficient each night.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 When he plays, he dominates. Yet, LeBron James has only played more than 56 games once in the past four seasons. He still posted 30.3 PPG, his highest average since 2005-2006, along with 8.2 RPG, 6.2 APG, and almost 2.5 blocks/steals per contest. James also needed to carry the Lakers, recording his highest minutes per game average (37.2) since 2016-2017. It's hard to see him reaching 60 games, which certainly hurts your weekly fantasy upside. But when he's on the court, it's an likely Top 5 nighly stat line.
Mike Randle - FTN
Kevin Porter Jr. had an overall strong year, despite some contentious moments with the coach staff. He maintained his 16 PPG average from the prior season, but played almost triple (61) the amount of games. Porter showed great improvement from deep, reaching 37.5% efficiency on 413 attempts. He crested a steal per game, while raising his RPG for the third consectutive year. On a Houston teamt that is ascending, Porter is a dynamic fantasy option with huge upside.
