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
Trae Young exploded onto the scene last year and finished fourth in scoring (29.6 points) and second in assists (9.3) per game. His 205 made three-pointers were sixth-most in the league and he did it at a 36.1% clip. If he's able to improve his shooting heading into his third year, there's no reason to expect him to finish outside the top-three in scoring.
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.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
The Atlanta Hawks spared no expense this offseason in putting an extremely formidable team around second-year All-Star PG Trae Young. By adding guys like Bogdan Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari, the Hawks are signaling to their young core that they are going all-in to surround them with the talent they need to succeed as early as this season. Last season, Young budded into a superstar right in front of our eyes, finishing fourth in scoring (29.6 ppg) and second in assists (9.3 apg), trailing only LeBron James in that category. While the scoring numbers could come down with a plethora of options to put the ball in the basket, it's not out of the realm of possibility that Young averages over 10 assists per game this season. He's also only missed a total of eight games in two seasons. In a world of "DNP-rest," Young is as safe as they come in the middle to later part of the first round in 2020-21.
