Notes 
 A lockdown 3&D specialist whose offensive game is developing slowly. His true ceiling is capped, though, as the fourth option in the Suns' offense.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Russ is tough to rank. We think he'll be in LA, but how much will he play? Will he adjust his style of play? He's a better points' league option than category, and there's a chance he's out of the league by February.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Mikal Bridges has raised his scoring average in each of his four NBA seasons, ending with last year's 14.2 PPG. He is an elite defender, that brings 2.0 steals/blocks per game to a profile that makes him a Defensive Player of Year candidate each season. The durable 6-foot-6 small forward played all 82 games, while averaging a career-best 34.8 MPG. A career 83.1% FT shooter, Bridges has even more upside if he can return to his 42.5% 3P accuracy from 2020-2021.
Mike Randle - FTN
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Russell Westbrook has four seasons where he avearged a triple-double, yet finds himself ranked outside the Top 75 fantasy players. Why? He will turn 34-years-old, hit just 44% of his FGs and 29.8% of his 3P attempts. Westbrook is also just a 66.7% FT shooter, over 12 points below his career average. His role is still uncertain, and will LeBron James hyperfocused for that last championship, the tolerance for Westbrook's inefficient play will be less than ever.
