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
The biggest risk when drafting Kawhi Leonard is his load management. Without suffering any major injuries, Leonard suited up for just 57 games last year. When he plays, you're getting a player that'll churn out top-10 scoring performances almost every night as well as top-five value in steals. In addition, his 7.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game were good for 33rd and 36th in the league, respectively. He deserves to be picked in the first round, but make sure to have someone to plug in for his inevitable healthy scratches.
