Notes 
 Trae Young tied Luka Doncic in scoring at 28.4 PPG, but how will the addition of Dejountae Murray affect Atlanta's fifth-year point guard? Young ranked third in the NBA with 9.7 APG, barely ahead of Murray himself. He shot free throws with over a 90% rate and averaged a career-best in 3P accuracy (38.2%). Young's 4.0 turnovers per game is concerning, as is his ceiling with Murray now residing in Atlanta's backcourt.
Mike Randle - BettingPros
Jimmy Butler is 32 years old, and has failed to reach 60 regular season games played since 2016-2017. However, when he plays he is a fantasy machine. Butler is a box scorer stuffer that has averaged over 38 FPPG in each of the past three seasons. He remains the clear top option on an NBA Championship-caliber Miami team. Few players in the Top 20 can match is 2.5 steals/blocks per game while carrying 30 PPG nightly upside.
