Notes 
 Per-game, he's a top-10 player. But we all know the risks of rostering Irving. If not, make him proud and do your own research.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
The move to Atlanta hurts Murray more than Young, but it's still a fine third-round landing spot for him with his steals and assists.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Another difficult player to rank. When Kyrie Irving plays, he's a superstar. Irving ranked 14th in FPPG (44.8), averaging 27.4 PPG with 4.4 RPG and 5.8 APG. The problem is Irving has played a total of just 103 games over the past three seasons. His efficiency is unquestioned, reaching 40% or better in five of the last six seasons. If you get 55-plus games out of Irving, you have a huge discount on a Top 20 fantasy producer. But that's the hardest projection entering the 2022-2023 season.
Mike Randle - FTN
Dejounte Murray enjoyed a breakout season last year, hitting career per-game averages in points, rebounds, assists, and steals. He is also incredibly durable averaging at least 66 games played in each of the past four seasons. If Murray had stayed with San Antonio, he would have ranked as an automatic Top 10 fantasy selection. The 25-year-old versatile guard was traded to Atlanta for a package that included multiple first-round picks. Despite having to share the scoring load with Trae Young, I project a huge season for the efficient and stat-stuffing Murray.
