Notes 
 Middleton is as steady and reliable as they come for fantasy managers, continually posting strong counting stats while shooting ultra-efficiently. In 2020-21, he dished a career-high 5.4 assists to go with 20.4 points and 6.0 boards while teasing a 50/40/90 shooting performance. His production isn't expected to change in 2021-22, and he can be drafted in the mid-to-late third round of drafts.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
After an electric sophomore season, Zion should be highly-touted heading into the new fantasy season. He's an elite scorer who contributes significantly in boards and FG%, though he hasn't shown a propensity for racking up defensive stats, and his three-point game is non-existent. One of the most valuable players in dynasty formats due to his immense upside, Zion's value in redraft formats will depend on his ability to imrpove on defense and three-point shooting. He falls outside the top-30 due to recently announced concerns about offseason foot surgery that could limit him in the early goings of the season.
