Notes 
 The position falls off quick, making Adebayo a great pick in Round 2. Would love to see an increase in blocks.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
He'll lose a bit in rebounds and blocks being alongside KAT, but he'll still be an elite option in the second round. Don't let the real-life narrative scare you away from him in fantasy.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Few centers can match the overall athleticism of Miami's Bam Adebayo. Still only 25 years old, Adebayo has averaged a doubld-double in two of his past three seasons. He saw a slight decrease in his assists and blocks per game, likely a result of November surgery to repair a torn UCL in his thumb. Adebayo's defensive versatility and nearly 75% efficiency at the foul line, make him an invaluable fantasy asset at the center position.
Mike Randle - FTN
Hard to rank the three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year lower than this, especially where he's produced 15PPG or more in three of his last four seasons. Gobert actually increased his rebounds per game to a career-best 14.7 this season, and he is one of the most durable big men in the league. Gobert has played at least 66 games in each of the past four seasons. There is the likelihood of a slight decrease in his production playing alongside fellow big man Karl-Anthony Towns, but his 2.1 blocks per game and 72% FG efficiency last year bodes well for any team.
