Notes 
 The 24 games Zion played as a rookie can easily get lost in the shuffle between New Orleans holding him out so long into the season and the chaotic spring and summer that ended in the Orlando bubble. In those 24 games, however, he was outstanding. He averaged 22.5 points and 6.3 rebounds a game, often in limited minutes. He logged a player efficiency rating (PER) of 24.1, landing him right between Nikola Jokic (24.9) and Trae Young (23.9). He should see a full allotment of minutes this season and is poised for a breakout season with the Pelicans.
Aaron Larson - FantasyPros
After averaging 17.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 6.6 assists, and 1.9 steals in 36 minutes per game, VanVleet was in the running for Most Improved Player of the Year in 2019-20. With Kawhi Leonard in Los Angeles, FVV was called upon to take on a much larger role on the offense and didn't disappoint. He's quickly become one of the cornerstones of a very well-coached Raptors team, so much so that Toronto decided to reward him with a four-year, $85M contract this offseason. With Kyle Lowry turning 35 mid-way through the upcoming season, there's a whole lot of room for VanVleet to continue to grow. The only knock on his game could be his relatively low field goal percentage (41.3 percent), but that's bound to happen when you're attempting almost seven 3-pointers per game. There's no reason FVV can't be a top-30 fantasy asset in 2020-21.
