    over-rated - Valanciunas
    underrated - Gay

    Don't hate me. Big Val is the future, I just don't think the future will be in all its glory this year. I truly believe Rudy Gay is going to be in beast mode this year....

    disclaimer - I believed Bargnani was going to break out for a really long time.....

    Good question.

    Over-Rated: Amir - love the guy but his value is at the peak of his career.......(hint hint - buy low, sell high)
    Under-Rated: Fields (he can't be that bad again.....can he?)

    I like your angle with this.

    Overrated: DeRozan - I like the kid's attitude and work-ethic, but he still hasn't shown to be a net positive to his team, yet is considered a "core" piece.

    Underrated: Augustin - Had a bad season last year, but I think having a legit backup PG who knows how to run an offense (and doesn't warrant more than 15-20 mpg) will pay huge dividends this year. I think we'll look bad at this signing at season's end and nod our collective heads at Ujiri.

    I back this post 100%.
    I truly thought each year would be the year for Bargs too, but with Rudy I don't feel like I'm just talking myself into it.

    Wow, tough question.

    Most Miscast - DD and Gay - should be 3rd and 4th options on a very good team, instead of 1st and 2nd
    Most Overrated - Jonas - agree with above poster - got the feeling that fans are expecting him to make a big leap this season, but I think he may take a bit longer - bring him along slowly, there's no rush here
    Most Underrated - Dwane Casey - I'm expecting to see more Year 1 Casey and less Year 2 Casey
    Most to Prove - Kyle Lowry and Landry Fields (tie)
    Most Underwhelming - Austin Daye - prepare to not be amazed

    I would say that the entire team is Underrated. There were a lot of expectations (well at least for me personally) going into last season and they failed badly. Last season has made me look at the team differently and reading posts from others I sense that a majority feel that the Raptors are a border line playoff team. That is possibly true but if everything breaks right (and it's possible) then the team could do very well.

    As for overrated... that would be JV. Not because he's bad or I think he's bad.. it's just because it feels like there is so much expectation for him to be great.. and that may not happen. There is still a debate (and a good one) of whether or not he should have been traded for Harden, and even with hindsight many have felt that it would have been a bad deal.

    If the team failed to meet expectations last year, wouldn't that mean they were overrated (instead of underrated)?

    Overrated last year, underrated this year? Our roster has a bit of a new look so maybe last year's expectations would suit this team better

    I think the fact that they were so highly overrated last year and disappointing makes them underrated this year.. Perhaps more people got a gut check last year and are looking at this year's squad as a lottery team so that they don't get their expectations up.. I know that I'm partially doing that.

    Underrated: Lowry. He got killed in the media last year despite putting up solid numbers. And... CONTRACT YEAR!

    Overrated: I don't think anyone on the team is overrated. No one on this team is hyped all that much. The only guy getting much attention is Valanciunas but, even there, I think most people are keeping expecations in check.
