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
Luka Doncic led the league with triple-doubles (17) throughout his sophomore campaign and finished third in assists per game (8.8), sixth in scoring per game (28.8), and 17th in rebounds per game (9.4). At just 21 years old, it's crazy to think that Doncic can still improve those numbers heading into his third season. He should be a top-three pick in all formats and has a good chance to finish as the top fantasy producer this season.
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
Coming off an MVP-caliber season, Doncic should be ready to take the next step forward in his third season. He averaged 28.9 points, 9.4 boards, and 8.9 assists and earned All-NBA First-Team honors in the process. His shooting and turnovers ding his value slightly in category leagues, but there's legitimate argument for him to go No. 1 in points leagues this season.
