Notes 
 The clear 1.1 in redraft. Checks every single box and gives you the durability you need in an era of resting.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Washington should see an uptick in value as the go-to power forward for the Hornets. Decent three-point shooter for a stretch-four.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 There is no NBA fantasy player better than Nikola Jokic. He averaged over 27 PPG with 13.8 RPG and just a tad under eight assists per game. All this while shooting 58.3 percent from the field while attempting the eighth-most shots (1311) of any other player. He is a career 83 percent free throw shooter while only commiting an average of 2.8 fouls per game. The return of Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray should provide even more space for Jokic to operate on offense. At just 27 years old, Jokic is the King of NBA Fantasy basketball.
Mike Randle - FTN
P.J. Washington has been a solid contributor during his three NBA seasons, showing offensive versatility as a 6-foot-7 power forward. His career average of 11.3 PPG is supported by a 37.5 percent efficiency mark from 3P range on 4.4 attempts per contest. Washington provides 5.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and a combined 2.0 steals/blocks per game. Depending on the looming suspension for Miles Bridges, Washington to see a huge opportunity bump in 2022-2023.
