Notes 
 The "Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown can't co-exist" myth has finally been disproved. Boston parlayed a 51-win season and second-place Eastern Conference finish to the Celtics first trip to the NBA Finals since 2009-2010. Brown crested 60 games played for the first time in four years, while maintaining superb per-game averages of 23.6 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 3.5 assists. Brown saw a slight dip in his 3P accuracy (35.8%), but his career field goal mark of 47.3% is superb given his over 1200 attempts last season. Will the addition of Malcolm Brogdon hurt Brown's volume? Possibly, but not enough to push him out of the Top 20 fantasy players.
Mike Randle - BettingPros
I have my concerns about Zion Williamson, who carries a cumulative injury history. He has played only 85 games through his first three NBA seasons, yet signed a massive five-year contract extension. The last time we saw the 6-foot-6, 284 lb forward, he was posting 27 PPG and 7.2 RPG. However, with the development of Brandon Ingram, the addition of CJ McCollum, and his annual weight concerns, is that production we will never see again?
