Notes 
 After winning Rookie of the Year honors behind strong all-around stats, the sky's the limit for Ball in Year 2. In 32 starts, he averaged 17.9 points, 5.8 boards, 6.1 dimes, 2.1 triples, and 1.6 steals across 31 minutes per contest. He proved himself as a shooter and playmaker, and a step forward in any category would boost his value significantly. He could push for second-round value in his first full year as the starting PG.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Fournier should be a primary scoring option for the Knicks right away, and his steady shooting and ability to knock down threes make him a top-90 selection. His current ADP suggests that he's flying under the radar, and you can likely draft him well below his ceiling.
