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
Rudy Gobert finished his seventh season in Utah with a career-high 13.5 rebounds per game, good for fourth in the league. He also had his sixth consecutive season with at least 2.0 blocks per game and finished last year with the sixth-most in the league. Those stats are pesky to accumulate in fantasy basketball leagues and Gobert offers a solid floor for both categories. In addition, he's coming off 15.1 points, the second-highest of his career and a solid total for someone typically labeled as a defender.
