Notes 
 Even at age 35, LeBron James was still able to finish with 25.3 points per game, 12th-most in the NBA. Even crazier was that he was able to develop as a passer on his way to a career-high 10.2 assists per game, most in the NBA. His blocks and steals have been trending downward over the last few seasons and that should continue as he heads into his 18th season, but his physicality will still likely land him in the top-25 rebounders yet again. All of that makes the future Hall of Famer for a safe but somewhat boring pick.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
Bradley Beal quietly finished the season with 30.5 points per game, second-highest in the league and a personal career-best. In addition to his step forward as a scorer, Beal logged a career-high 6.1 assists per game. With Russell Westbrook joining the team, it can certainly cut into Beal's production, but I expect Beal to lead the team in scoring as Westbrook plays second fiddle. At just 27-years-old Beal is still developing as a player and we can see him reach superstar status here in his ninth year as a pro.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
 He's arguably the greatest player of all time, but should you want the King on your fantasy team this season? He's heading into his 18th NBA season, fresh off winning a title just two months ago. While he averaged double-digit assists per game for the first time in his career, his scoring numbers were down with Anthony Davis in town and he continues to shoot under 70 percent from the charity stripe. While he's a relatively safe bet to average somewhere between 23-25 points, 7-8 rebounds, and 8-10 assists per game, James is bound to sit out a handful of contests this season with the Lakers' sights on back-to-back championships. While he's a solid back-end first round pick, I'd rather have young rising stars such as Trae Young, Nikola Jokic, and Jayson Tatum this season ahead of LeBron James.
Adam Koffler - FantasyPros
Beal has been a solid fantasy option for most of his eight-year professional career, but he erupted last season. He did the best he could to put a broken down Washington team on his back, scoring over 1,000 points more than any of his Wizard teammates. He trailed only James Harden in scoring average, racking 30.5 points per game. His role will likely diminish with the recent addition of usage hog Russell Westbrook, but Beal still figures to be a top fantasy option at guard.
