Notes 
 The MCL sprain is the only reason he's this low. Well, also the fact that he's as likely as a shutdown candidate late in the season as anyone is.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
I actually don't mind the fit in Cleveland, but he'll naturally have some drop-off in production with Garland beside him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Lost in the disappointment of back-to-back 22 and 24 wins seasons, Oklahoma City's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is a budding NBA star. Playing almost 35 MPG, Gilgeous-Alexander averaged 24.5 PPG, 5.0 RPG, and 5.9 APG, while contributing over two blocks/steals per night. Battling an ankle injury all season, he only played in 56 games, but should be a leader on a Thunder team oozing with talent with a strong 2022 NBA Draft class.
Mike Randle - FTN
As of now, Donovan Mitchell is returing to the Jazz as Utah's clear leader. With Rudy Gobert now in Minnesota, Mitchell projects for similar usage and scoring load to Washington's Bradley Beal. Mitchell gets consistently high volume, attempting over 1300 shots in two of the past three seasons. His 25.9 PPG solidified his career-best 26.4 PPG in the 2020-2021 season. The 25-year-old shooting guard provides about 10 rebounds/assists per game, while tallying about 1.5 steals per contest. Mitchell could reach his fantasy ceiling in 2022-2023, on a Jazz team that appears to be in rebuilding mode.
