Notes 
 On a per-game basis, Embiid is nearly unrivaled at center, though health/rest concerns have always got to be in the back of fantasy managers' minds. Embiid has appeared in 51 games in back-to-back seasons, so you'll likely be without him for stretches of the season. He averaged career highs in points (28.5), steals (1.0), and shooting (51.3/37.7/85.9) on his way to runner-up for MVP behind Nikola Jokic. If Ben Simmons is moved, Embiid could see an increase in usage, so there's hope for an even more productive campaign. If you draft Embiid, it's a great idea to pair him with his backup Andre Drummond in a later round.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Anunoby posted career highs in points (15.9), rebounds (5.5), assists, (2.2), steals (1.5), and threes (2.4) while shooting 48/39/78 splits. He's taken major steps forward and developed a well-rounded and efficient game that's perfect for 9-cat fantasy leagues. Pascal Siakam will likely be out to start the season, boosting Anunoby's value even further. Expect top-40 numbers with a high ceiling, but as the preseason hype grows for Anunoby, don't expect to get him at a bargain on draft day.
