Notes 
 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
Nikola Jokic regressed in every statistical category (points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals) last year from his 2018-2019 campaign but still finished top-30 across the board and with 13 triple-doubles (second-best in the league). The reason I have him ranked this high is because of his consistency over the last three seasons. He's averaging 19.5 rebounds, 10.4 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.7 steals over a three-year stretch. That type of production would warrant a top-five pick and there's no reason to expect him to slow down at just age 25.
Dave Kluge - 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.
