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
We haven't seen much of Stephen Curry over the last few years, but at just 32 years old there's no reason to expect anything less than the superstar play we've grown accustomed to. Although his 2019-2020 season was ended after just five games, Curry still posted 27.3 points per game while shooting 43.7% from deep. With Klay Thompson already out for the season, expect the Warriors to draw up as many plays as they can to get Curry open in space.
