Notes 
 Trae Young exploded onto the scene last year and finished fourth in scoring (29.6 points) and second in assists (9.3) per game. His 205 made three-pointers were sixth-most in the league and he did it at a 36.1% clip. If he's able to improve his shooting heading into his third year, there's no reason to expect him to finish outside the top-three in scoring.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
Bradley Beal quietly finished the season with 30.5 points per game, second-highest in the league and a personal career-best. In addition to his step forward as a scorer, Beal logged a career-high 6.1 assists per game. With Russell Westbrook joining the team, it can certainly cut into Beal's production, but I expect Beal to lead the team in scoring as Westbrook plays second fiddle. At just 27-years-old Beal is still developing as a player and we can see him reach superstar status here in his ninth year as a pro.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
 The Atlanta Hawks spared no expense this offseason in putting an extremely formidable team around second-year All-Star PG Trae Young. By adding guys like Bogdan Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari, the Hawks are signaling to their young core that they are going all-in to surround them with the talent they need to succeed as early as this season. Last season, Young budded into a superstar right in front of our eyes, finishing fourth in scoring (29.6 ppg) and second in assists (9.3 apg), trailing only LeBron James in that category. While the scoring numbers could come down with a plethora of options to put the ball in the basket, it's not out of the realm of possibility that Young averages over 10 assists per game this season. He's also only missed a total of eight games in two seasons. In a world of "DNP-rest," Young is as safe as they come in the middle to later part of the first round in 2020-21.
Adam Koffler - FantasyPros
Beal has been a solid fantasy option for most of his eight-year professional career, but he erupted last season. He did the best he could to put a broken down Washington team on his back, scoring over 1,000 points more than any of his Wizard teammates. He trailed only James Harden in scoring average, racking 30.5 points per game. His role will likely diminish with the recent addition of usage hog Russell Westbrook, but Beal still figures to be a top fantasy option at guard.
