Notes 
 Fresh off signing a max extension, Butler will look to continue his strong play in Miami this season. He averaged 21/7/7 last season with 2.1 steals and just 2.1 turnovers. In two seasons with the Heat, he's averaged 6.8 boards and 6.5 dimes. While the assist numbers will likely take a hit with Kyle Lowry on the roster, Butler shouldn't fall off enough in that category to drop outside the second round of drafts. He's not a three-point shooter, but he'll provide strong contributions nearly everywhere else, including elite steal totals. Current ADP suggests Butler is being undervalued, and if you can land him around pick 20 or later, you've got yourself real value.
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%.
