Notes 
 Arguably, no player saw his fantasy stock rise more in the playoffs than Young, who led the Hawks to the Eastern Conference Finals and dazzled crowds along the way. He averaged 25.3 points, 9.4 dimes (career high) and 3.9 boards in 20-21, and while he did take a step back in the scoring department thanks to improved depth around him, he continued to nail triples and shoot well from the free-throw line. Young can make the leap to a top-12 player if he cleans up his turnovers and improves his FG%.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Every year we doubt CP3, and every year he delivers. Last season, Paul led the Suns to the NBA Finals behind a staggeringly strong regular season in which he averaged 16.4 points and posted a 4-1 assist-to-turnover margin. He's an elite shooter, defender, facilitator, and rebounder who doesn't hurt you in any category except blocks. There's no reason to expect a precipitous drop-off this season.
