In this week’s Starting Five segment of the episode, Andy and Dalton run down the five biggest storylines of the fantasy season, which include:

1) Who is most worthy of the No.1 overall pick, Anthony Davis or Steph Curry? (2:25)

2) Are there major changes to the fantasy values of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George with the Clippers? (4:30)

3) How the hell will this James Harden-Russell Westbrook thing work? (6:35)

4) What do we make of Joel Embiid’s media day comments? (8:10)

5) Fantasy forecasting for Zion Williamson! (10:15)

Speaking of media day, some big fantasy names had a lot to share. Andy and Dalton break down some of those comments, including Ben Simmons saying he wants to be Defensive Player of the Year and Hassan Whiteside wanting to lead the league in blocks and rebounds this season (11:10)

Ricky O'Donnell of SB Nation calls in to dive more into one of the big questions of the offseason: will Zion Williamson be great right away. They also chat about the rest of the 2019 rookie class and what to expect out of Andy's hometown Chicago Bulls (17:20).

Andy & Dalton wrap up the show with their first version of In Case You Missed It. ICYMI this week: Kawhi got booed at a Rams game over the weekend. Being a Clipper is tough in a Laker town (32:00).
