Notes 
 Don't get me wrong, I think Irving is one of the most talented players in the NBA, but that doesn't necessarily mean I'd feel comfortable spending a second round pick on him this season. We're talking about a guy who has missed over 27% of regular season games throughout his 9-year career in a league where "DNP-rest" nights are becoming more and more prevalent for the league's top players. Now add Kevin Durant to the mix in Brooklyn, a player who will command 16-20 shots per game, and I just can't fathom spending up on Irving. I'd much rather take a chance on an ascending player like Fred VanVleet a whole two rounds later.
Adam Koffler - FantasyPros
Jaylen Brown signed a four-year contract extension with the Celtics and posted career highs across the board. He averaged 20.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.3 threes over 57 games. Celtics' PG Kemba Walker will be out until mid-January after receiving a stem cell injection in his left knee. When Kemba is off the court, Brown was second in usage rate (26.0%) only behind franchise player Jayson Tatum (30.1%) in 2019-20. Brown will once again have a prominent role in the Celtics offense and will produce night in and night out. The current ADP consensus for Brown is 59, but expect this number to rise as the NBA season draws closer.
