I’m not sure why there’s not a 23rd floor on this elevator but I know very few players are rising to the top of fantasy drafts like the featured Paul George.
George’s stats have been rising each year and this should be the All-Star season where George goes from Roto friendly to Roto superstar in Fantasy leagues. His scoring has gone from 8 to 12 to 17 while rebounds and steals have gone up almost by 2 each season. He finished last season with an average of 17/8/5/2/1 with 2 3 pointers and ESPN has him duplicating those numbers this season but with 4 more points in the scoring department.
Those apples are good enough to make him a late 1st round pick and behind only LeBron, Durant and Kevin Love at the forward position. If your league has a SF position then only KD & LeBron are ahead of him which means George is now ahead of players like Melo, Gay and Josh Smith.
