Notes 
 You could make a case for Curry at No. 2 or No. 3 and I wouldn't argue. We've seen the ceiling and the floor from him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
I'm not worried about the arrival of Dejounte Murray. A few spots, sure, but no more than that. They'll be staggered enough to allow the spacing that Young needs. Look for him to get more involved off-ball, too.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 The 34-year old Curry started the season in blistering fashion before slowing later the in year. Curry averaged over 28 PPG during the first three months with over five rebounds and six assists per game. Despite a Finals MVP performance during Golden State's championship run, it's worth noting he posted career-lows in FG percentage (43.6%) and 3P percentage (38%). He doesn't post the overall numbers of the players listed above, and the full health of Klay Thompson certainly affects his upside. Curry is averaging 3.6 fewer points and 2.9 fewer 3PA with Thompson on the court.
Mike Randle - FTN
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.
