Notes 
 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
That trade is looking better and better for Orlando. He's declining offensively and is the third option on Chicago.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 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.
Mike Randle - FTN
Nikola Vucevic saw a predictable drop in his points per game last season, sharing the scoring load with newly-acquired DeMar DeRozan. Vucevic posted a solid 17.6 PPG and 11.0 RPG, while contributing one block/one steal per game. This is his appropriate ranking, unless LaVine is traded. A solid and reliable fantasy center option.
