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
We're kind of just putting him here right now as we wait to see how serious the knee injury is. 8-12 weeks is a long time.
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
Robert Williams aka "Time Lord" is a great fantasy asset...when he's healthy. Last season was the healthiest of his career, reaching 61 games and averaging 10 PPG, 9.8 RPG, and 2.2 BPG. Williams also approached 30 MPG (29.6) and was a game-changer on the offensive boards, averaging 3.9 per contest. A healthy Williams should be listed ahead of Ayton and Vucevic, but can he be trusted over a full season? Prior to last year, Williams played just 113 games in his first three professional year.
