Notes 
 Nikola Jokic regressed in every statistical category (points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals) last year from his 2018-2019 campaign but still finished top-30 across the board and with 13 triple-doubles (second-best in the league). The reason I have him ranked this high is because of his consistency over the last three seasons. He's averaging 19.5 rebounds, 10.4 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.7 steals over a three-year stretch. That type of production would warrant a top-five pick and there's no reason to expect him to slow down at just age 25.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
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.
