The price is trending upwards. However, averaging 16.4 points, 10.0 rebounds and 7.4 assists per game thus far, Simmons would be a must-pick even if he cost a lot more than this.

Essentially a point guard, Simmons posted a triple-double in his last game, his third ever NBA game, and is already something of a dominant NBA player. It is only an algorithmic anomaly that keeps his fantasy price this low this early. Take full advantage and pick him.

An offence built around him and Fultz is an offence I want to see. Fultz, Simmons, Embiid, Saric, Holmes and Covington, with the hope that one of the trio of Stauskas, Anderson and Luwawu-Cabarrot becomes the new Michael Finley or something, is about as good of a platform as any team can have without having drafted a LeBron or Durant type. Health permitting, of course. And Simmons’s health as well.
Player Plan: Three years of rookie scale salary remaining. Obviously things are off to a pretty slow start, but the commitment to him should remain.
