Notes 
 Harden's move from Houston to Brooklyn may have initially been viewed as a downgrade for fantasy purposes, but the Beard thrived in his new locale, averaging a near triple-double thanks to 8.5 boards and 10.9 dimes. Despite (likely) playing more games alongside Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant this season, Harden should still be viewed as an elite first-round talent who will play the majority of his minutes at point guard. He's got a stable floor because of his stellar shooting and steals, and his ceiling remains sky-high.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
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%.
