Notes 
 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
Jayson Tatum signed a signed a five-year contract extension worth up to $195 million with the Celtics this offseason. He had a breakout campaign in his third year in the league, averaging 23.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.9 blocks and 2.9 triples across 34.3 minutes over 66 games. Gordon Hayward signed with the Hornets, the former third overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft could have an expanded role. The 22-year-old made his first All-Star appearance last season and is expected to once again carry the Celtics' offense. Tatum is projected to be a mid-to-late first round pick in upcoming fantasy drafts, expect more of the same élite production in 2020-21.
