PROJECTED 2016 SEASON STATS
1. Nerlens Noel, Phi C, PFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2015 Statistics7530.8.462.6090.08.11.70.881.81.91.99.9

2016 Outlook: After missing a season while recovering from ACL surgery, Noel played 75 games in his first NBA campaign. Throughout much of the 2014-15 season, he showcased his promise as a fantasy hustle-stat king by racking up plenty of blocks and steals. Things really clicked in March, when he averaged 14.3 PPG, 11.2 RPG, 2.1 BPG, 2.4 SPG and 50.0 FG%. That is some pretty tantalizing upside, though he will have to improve his midrange game in order to become consistent as a scorer this season. Teams that draft him also will have to deal with his subpar shooting at the stripe (60.9 FT%), but those hustle stats are going to make him a hot commodity in drafts.
2. Jahlil Okafor, Phi C, PFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS

2016 Projections7332.4.480.5220.07.70.90.450.51.02.013.1
2016 Outlook: The 76ers used their first-round pick on yet another big man, but at least this time their man is healthy and ready to roll as a rookie. With Joel Embiid out for the foreseeable future, the Sixers have a good frontcourt pairing with the defensively minded Nerlens Noel and the offensively minded Okafor, who has the size and moves to be an impact scorer immediately. His overall fantasy game could be lacking, though. He wasn't a prolific shot-blocker at Duke, and he was horrendous at the charity stripe (51.0 FT%), which could bring down roto teams, if he takes a lot of FTA. He'll be more enticing in points systems, but his scoring potential will make him one of the top couple of rookies off of all draft boards.
3. Robert Covington, Phi PF, SFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2015 Statistics7027.9.396.8202.44.51.50.821.40.41.813.5
2016 Projections7427.7.403.8242.54.31.70.951.40.41.813.6
2016 Outlook: The former undrafted free agent was a revelation last season, averaging 13.5 PPG, 2.4 3-PPG, 4.5 RPG and 1.4 SPG. Sure, his sub-40 FG% was a drag in roto leagues, but he took the edge off of that with 82.0 FT%. With the addition of Okafor to the frontcourt, Covington may play more small forward, which could decrease his boards but increase his 3s. Keep an eye on his role in the preseason; there is upside potential here.
