Shai Gilgeous-Alexander ($6,700) has quickly become one the best young players in the NBA. Prior to the season, many people thought the Oklahoma City Thunder would be a tanking team after they traded away Paul George and Russell Westbrook. Instead, OKC appears to be playoff bound, led by SGA and Chris Paul ($6,900).

Monday was a history-making performance for the Thunders’ young star. He put up a clean 20-20-10 line, becoming the first player in league history under 21 to put up these numbers. The stat line was good for 66.5 DKFP, so fantasy players were also rewarded if they took a chance on second-year player. Loaded with draft picks, the future is bright in Oklahoma City.
