 These are some of the top players to watch in fantasy basketball this season:
 1.Jerian​ ​Grant,​ ​Chicago​ ​Bulls 
Grant​ ​is​ ​a​ ​starting​ ​NBA​ ​point​ ​guard​ ​averaging​ ​30.2​ ​minutes​ ​and​ ​nearly 
12​ ​shots​ ​per​ ​game.​ ​With​ ​the​ ​Bulls​ ​applying​ ​a​ ​faster​ ​pace,​ ​he increases 
opportunities​ ​in​ ​transition.​ ​Grant​ ​could​ ​be​ ​a​ ​source​ ​of​ ​assists​ ​and​ ​steals 
atop​ ​a​ ​thin​ ​backcourt. 
2.Dejounte​ ​Murray,​ ​San​ ​Antonio​ ​Spurs 
With​ ​the​ ​Spurs​ ​thin​ ​backcourt​ ​depth,​ ​Murray​ ​should​ ​earn​ ​steady​ ​minutes 
while​ ​supplying​ ​plus​ ​rates​ ​in​ ​steals,​ ​assists,​ ​and​ ​rebounds. 
3.Kelly​ ​Olynyk,​ ​Miami​ ​Heat 
Olynyk​ ​doesn’t​ ​stand​ ​out​ ​in​ ​any​ ​one​ ​statistic,​ ​but​ ​can​ ​provide​ ​very 
helpful​ ​rates​ ​among​ ​scarcer​ ​categories​ ​in​ ​fantasy.​ ​​ ​He also​ ​has​ ​a​ ​respectable 
defensive​ ​rating.  
4.Joe​ ​Ingles,​ ​Utah​ ​Jazz 
Ingles​ ​was​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​best​ ​three-point​ ​shooters​ ​in​ ​the​ ​league​ ​last​ ​year 
and​ ​that​ ​means​ ​more​ ​shots​ ​for​ ​him.​ ​Ingles​ ​is​ ​also​ ​good​ ​at​ ​running​ ​the 
floor and the​ Jazz ​offense​ ​has​ ​been​ ​quicker​ ​with​ ​Ricky​ ​Rubio​ ​heading​ ​the​ ​charge. 
Having​ ​Rubio​ ​running​ ​the​ ​show​ ​only​ ​helps​ ​Ingles’s​ ​cause.​ ​Averaging 
well​ ​over​ ​30​ ​minutes​, ​Ingles​ ​also​ ​helps​ ​in​ ​nearly​ ​every​ ​category 
except​ ​for​ ​blocks. 
5.Lauri​ ​Markkanen,​ ​Chicago​ ​Bulls 
With​ ​Nikola​ ​Mirotic​ ​hurt​ ​and​ ​Bobby​ ​Portis​ ​suspended,​ ​this​ ​unique​ ​stretch 
big​ ​has​ ​been​ ​gifted​ ​a​ ​ton​ ​of​ ​opportunity​ ​to​ ​produce​ ​for​ ​a​ ​young​ ​Bulls 
roster.​ ​Averaging​ ​well​ ​over​ ​30​ ​minutes,​ ​he has​ ​amazing​ ​rebounding​ ​and 
shooting​ ​rates.
