Notes 
 He's immediately the No. 1 option for the Magic and the frontrunner for Rookie of the Year. There are a lot of mouths to feed in Orlando, but he's the head of the table.
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
  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.
