Early Fantasy Top-12: How High Can Trae Climb?

Trae Young just completed a season ("just" is a word we use loosely here, since he last played about seven months ago) where he averaged 29.6 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 9.3 apg, 1.1 spg and 3.4 3s, all at the age of 21. 

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, we take a moment to ponder Young's ridiculous fantasy upside while taking a very early look at what could be the first round of fantasy drafts next season for me and Steve Alexander. 

Also discussed in detail: James Harden, Karl-Anthony Towns, Steph Curry, Jayson Tatum, Luka Doncic (naturally — Dr. A is involved), Kevin Durant and John Collins (naturally since I'm involved). 

We look at where these players should potentially go in fantasy leagues, and discuss a couple of the red flags when it comes to considering two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
