2015 Outlook: The Sixers made a long-term investment when they drafted Noel in 2013, and they stuck to their guns and didn't play him at all last season. Now it's time for the payoff, as Noel is 100 percent over his torn ACL and will get all of the minutes he can handle on the super-young Sixers roster. We know that the blocks, steals and rebounds will come right away for the 20-year-old. His true upside will depend on how well he settles in as a scorer. The long-term potential could be something like 20 PPG, 11 RPG, 1.5 SPG, 3.0 BPG. And considering how many minutes and touches are available for Noel, it's not inconceivable that he could do at least 17 PPG, 9 RPG and 2.5 BPG right out of the gate. --TC

2015 Outlook: Sims joined the long list of players who seemingly appeared out of nowhere in 76ers box scores last season. In 25 starts, he averaged 12.1 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 1.8 APG and 49.1 FG percentage. He didn't chip in much in the way of steals or blocks, but double-double threats always have value in fantasy. It's entirely possible he could start next to Nerlens Noel in the frontcourt and be a viable contributor this season. --TC
3. Joel Embiid*, Phi CYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics------------------------
2015 Projections------------------------
2015 Outlook: The buzz surrounding Embiid rocketed up all season long until he underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot. The procedure is supposed to cost him four to six months, which means he could be healthy sometime between the start of the season and early 2015. The Sixers stashed Nerlens Noel all last season without playing him, but Embiid could debut this season. Unless you have a deep bench, he'll be a tough stash in redraft leagues, but a healthy Embiid will be a nightly double-double threat who will block a ton of shots as a rookie. He seemingly has unlimited long-term upside -- if he can get and stay healthy -- and will be a prime target in dynasty formats. --TC
