We're not even close to fantasy draft season, but Zion Williamson is already flying up our fake draft boards. Is it possible we're already planning to take him too early?

Meanwhile, RJ Barrett — once the presumed No. 1 pick in this draft — may be flying slightly under the radar as a fantasy prospect with all signs pointing to him landing in New York. 

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, Raphielle Johnson joins me to discuss his first wave of NBA Mock Drafts, and what we can expect in fantasy from a number of the top names. Also on this episode: the outlook for ready-made fantasy dynamo Jarrett Culver, and why De'Andre Hunter might be a better fantasy prospect than we realize. Plus, a point guard breakdown with Coby White and Darius Garland, and some obligatory chatter on the perpetually intriguing Bol Bol.
