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
I'm going to be targeting SGA in every league I play in this season. I think he could realistically finish as a top-25 fantasy asset in 2020-21. As a member of the Thunder in his second season, Gilgeous-Alexander exponentially improved upon his rookie season output with the Clippers. He averaged 19.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.1 steals, and just 1.9 turnovers in almost 35 minutes per game last season, doubling his points scored and rebounds from 2018-19 with the Clippers. Now with Chris Paul, Danilo Gallinari, and Dennis Schroder all on different teams, SGA becomes the focal point on offense for the Thunder. General Manager Sam Presti recently told ESPN's Royce Young, "we're really kind of clearing the way for him [Gilgeous-Alexander] to expand his game, to be on the ball full time." Of note, SGA's production last season was on a usage rate of 23.7%. That number went up to 31.1% with Paul, Gallinari, and Schroder off the floor. Sky's the limit for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander this season.
Adam Koffler - 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.
