I'm just glad I have Lillard on my dynasty team.

This draft looks top heavy so far. Davis and Lillard are obvious future all stars while Beal and Drummond can certainly get there. Mo Harkless has also been very impressive. It's too early to tell which guys will emerge as solid role players.

The solid role players is the key comment here and I agree with it. I think guys that are meant to be superstars or at least close to it will show some promise in their rookie season no matter what. Are there other people in the class that can be productive role players? Sure, but I don't think they can get much better. Some of it just might be the might not get the opportunity. Derrick Williams and Michael Beasley kind of come to mind off the top of my head. They have had some productive seasons from a real life and fantasy perspective now, but I don't think they can ever be more than a third or fourth option on a team and scoring is a dime a dozen unfortunately.

I'd probably give a guy like Waiters the best chance to become great out of the group who I think looks to be struggling or not living up to their potential. I haven't seen much of MKG in person but given that team I'm shocked he hasn't been able to do more.
