Notes 
 Rudy Gobert finished his seventh season in Utah with a career-high 13.5 rebounds per game, good for fourth in the league. He also had his sixth consecutive season with at least 2.0 blocks per game and finished last year with the sixth-most in the league. Those stats are pesky to accumulate in fantasy basketball leagues and Gobert offers a solid floor for both categories. In addition, he's coming off 15.1 points, the second-highest of his career and a solid total for someone typically labeled as a defender.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
After suffering a horrific leg injury in March of 2019, Nurkic didn't get back on the court until the summer of 2020 in the NBA bubble. When he did finally return he was better than ever, averaging 17.6 points and 10.3 rebounds per game in eight regular-season games. It wasn't much different in the playoffs, where he averaged a double-double in five games against the Lakers. He could be primed for a breakout season with the Blazers in the upcoming season.
