    Fun Facts for the season

    -The Suns are currently ranked 13th in the Western Conference but would be closer to the playoffs in the East as their current record would put them in ninth place and only four games back of the eighth seed

    -The Suns have done a much better job drafting in the lottery over the past two seasons (Deandre Ayton, Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson) after a very rough, two-year stretch in which they drafted Dragan Bender (2016 draft, 4th overall), Marquese Chriss (2016 draft, 8th overall), and Josh Jackson (2017 draft, 4th overall)

    -Devin Booker has had five different head coaches in his first five seasons with the Suns (Jeff Hornacek, Earl Watson, Jay Triano, Igor Kokoškov and Monty Williams)

    -Kelly Oubre was a big winner for fantasy GMs as he outperformed his eighth round ADP (according to Yahoo!) with a career year that has seen him produce 5th/4th round value so far this season (8/9-cat leagues)

    -Durability was the only factor that limited Deandre Ayton’s fantasy value in 2019-20 as he produced 3rd/2nd round per-game value but fell outside the top-160 in terms of total value as he missed 25 games due to suspension and 10 games due to injury

    -Since being given the permanent starting job for the last 19 games of the season in which he averaged 35 minutes per game, Mikal Bridges produced 4th/3rd round and is a name to watch heading into next season
