Notes 
 I'm going to be targeting SGA in every league I play in this season. I think he could realistically finish as a top-25 fantasy asset in 2020-21. As a member of the Thunder in his second season, Gilgeous-Alexander exponentially improved upon his rookie season output with the Clippers. He averaged 19.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.1 steals, and just 1.9 turnovers in almost 35 minutes per game last season, doubling his points scored and rebounds from 2018-19 with the Clippers. Now with Chris Paul, Danilo Gallinari, and Dennis Schroder all on different teams, SGA becomes the focal point on offense for the Thunder. General Manager Sam Presti recently told ESPN's Royce Young, "we're really kind of clearing the way for him [Gilgeous-Alexander] to expand his game, to be on the ball full time." Of note, SGA's production last season was on a usage rate of 23.7%. That number went up to 31.1% with Paul, Gallinari, and Schroder off the floor. Sky's the limit for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander this season.
