Moving through the positions to the 3, SF looks to be deep just like PGs.  You’ve got your elite studs, you mid-level multi-stat gods (looking at you Chandler Parsons and Kawhi Leonard), JB’s crazy sleepers that no one else seems to like (DeMar DeRozan and Gerald Henderson) then old guys that possibly could produce late (pray for Danny Granger‘s knees!).  It’s a nice mixed bag.

As mentioned before, all Razzball ranks are broken down by Yahoo position eligibility (view all top 200 here), so there won’t be direct positional crossover to other fantasy sites:

2013-2014 Fantasy SF Rankings

(updated Oct. 8)

POS RANK OVERALL RANK PLAYER, POS, TEAM NOTE
1 1 ↑ Kevin Durant, SF, OKC Westbrook injury has me caving to conventional wisdom, no way you can’t go KD 1
2 2 ↓ LeBron James, SF/PF, MIA Still think an elite season coming, but can’t question KD at 1 anymore.
3 3 James Harden, SG/SF, HOU Easy to forget he was traded less than a week before 12-13 season.
4 12 Paul George, SG/SF, IND Love George as a player, think he’s getting overhyped in fantasy.
5 19 Carmelo Anthony, SF/PF, NY Elite scoring, sure, think boards go down and a little injury prone.
6 20 Nicolas Batum, SG/SF, POR Wrist injury a concern (no surgery), falling numbers and %s in second half scary.  Played a lot of minutes in EuroBasket, has a bad back now.
7 25 Josh Smith, SF/PF, DET Has opportunity, very volatile in his value.
8 28 Ersan Ilyasova, SF/PF, MIL Easy to overlook he was coming off the bench before Skiles fired, huge 2nd half.
9 40 Rudy Gay, SF/PF, TOR Buying all things Raptors, solid multi-cat contributor.
10 41 Kawhi Leonard, SG/SF, SA Love him, love the multi-cat game, Yahoo at 24 seems extraordinarily high though.
11 45 Jeff Green, SF/PF, BOS Huge, huge upside with extraordinary breakout potential.
12 57 Tobias Harris, SF/PF, ORL My boyfriend from last year, flashed fantastic goodness in 2nd half.  Will start.
13 58 Chandler Parsons, SF/PF, HOU Fantastic 12-13, think he has another great, efficient season.
14 59 Paul Pierce, SF, BKN Name value and new locale may have someone reach, Yahoo at 87 too low.
15 64 Klay Thompson, SG/SF, GS I’ve seen him very overranked, ThrAGNOF!
16 68 DeMar DeRozan, SG/SF, TOR A big sleeper of mine, TOR a great line-up now, buying the offseason work on 3s.
17 69 Gerald Henderson, SG/SF, CHA Back-to-back sleepers, Henderson showed elite production in 2nd half.
18 70 Thaddues Young, SF/PF, PHI Someone has to score in Philly, right?  Solid 12-13 as well, but not in love.
19 74 Luol Deng, SF, CHI Trade/contract issues persist, but solid player and should be with Bulls all year.
20 76 Andre Iguodala, SG/SF, DEN Low floor/low ceiling, moves to another fast-paced team to duplicate 12-13 #s.
21 77 Jimmy Butler, SG/SF, CHI A little surprised I’m higher on him than most, will start, multi-cat goodness.
22 78 J.R. Smith, SG/SF, NYK Knee injury, suspension for smoking, but past those I’m fine with him here.
23 80 Gordon Hayward, SG/SF, UTA Minutes, steals, assists up as 12-13 went on, TOs down, Uta needs consistency.
24 82 Danny Green, SG/SF, SA Really underrated multi-cat season: 1.2 stl 0.7 blk 12-13 a little shocking.
25 84 Wilson Chandler, SG/SF, DEN Without Gallinari until probably February, Chandler a huge breakout candidate.
26 89 Wesley Matthews, SG/SF, POR Don’t see him playing 35 mins a night, even with rook McCollum to miss prolonged time.
27 96 Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF, CHA People overrate a 19-yr old rookie season and write him off, multi-cat breakout.
28 105 ↓ Tyreke Evans, SG/SF, NO Ankle dinged up after preseason injury, hate to draft him injured even with report he should make opening night.
29 109 Joe Johnson, SG/SF, BKN Someone will reach for name value, scoring/3s down with all the options.
30 112 Danny Granger, SF, IND Like Bynum, tough to rank and I won’t be reaching for him – 2-10 in preseason opener.
31 113 Maurice Harkless, SF, ORL Flashed multi-cat goodness with 1.2 stl/0.8 blk in only 25 minutes per game.
32 114 Andrei Kirilenko, SF/PF, BKN Never been a huge fan, but will still get minutes behind old former Celtics.
33 115 Harrison Barnes, SF, GS Potential has always been there, but becomes a 6th man with Iggy.
34 116 Arron Afflalo, SG/SF, ORL Empty scoring, but still produces despite status with Magic in turmoil.
35 117 Shawn Marion, SF/PF, DAL I don’t buy a repeat, but Marion was huge last year under-the-radar.
36 126 Kyle Korver, SG/SF, ATL Despite my reluctance to draft 3-point specialists, was solid in 12-13.
37 128 ↑ Corey Brewer, SG/SF, MIN (two weeks ago)I just think he’s better than Budinger or Shabazz, more multi-cat value than expected. (now) Budinger hurt, Brewer to start.  Me likey.
38 129 Manu Ginobili, SG/SF, SA Injuries and lower minutes of course still there, but can still produce.
39 130 Evan Turner, SG/SF, PHI I just thought he’d be better and the NBA and he’s not, not buying new opportunity.
40 132 ↑ Martell Webster, SG/SF, WAS Porter’s hip injury lagging deeper than thought, Webster in line to get minutes in his stead.  Wiz to ease Porter in when ready.
41 133 Anthony Bennett, SF/PF, CLE Frontcourt is loaded, but loaded with injury-prone guys.  Still won’t reach for #1 pick.  Showing conditioning problems recovering from off-season shoulder surgery.
42 134 Gerald Wallce, SF/PF, BOS Will get minutes early, he’s getting shopped, could lose value on deadline deal.
43 139 Metta World Peace, SF/PF, NY Should play despite not playing under this name.  Probably avoiding.
44 143 Nick Young, SG/SF, LAL Might be droppable after Kobe is back, but could have a strong start.
45 146 Iman Shumpert, SG/SF, NY Returned from ACL surgery last year, could be solid after healthy offseason.
46 156 Trevor Ariza, SG/SF, WAS Even with Porter lingering injury, don’t think it changes Ariza’s value all that much – boost went to Webster for me.
47 160 Matt Barnes, SF, LAC Really solid multi-cat 12-13, should be used similarly.
48 161 Tony Allen, SG/SF, MEM Gives you the minutes, not any upside.
49 164 Jared Dudley, SG/SF, LAC Still see Barnes playing more minutes, but a chance to start on a good team.
50 166 Vince Carter, SG/SF, DAL Unreal he’s still playing, unreal the scoring/3s last year, still some value.
51 168 Tayshaun Prince, SF/PF, MEM Starts, gets minutes, will give you a tiny bit of scoring.
52 169 Thabo Sefolosha, SG/SF, DET Steals specialist, not much else.  Could boost a tad of socring with no Westbrook for a while
53 170 ↓ Otto Porter, Jr., SF, WAS Might take a while until we see consistent PT, hip injury recovery and will get eased in when ready, but upside in 2nd half.
54 173 Carl Landry, SF/PF, SAC Revolving door at the 4 for the Kings, I think Landry is most consistent.
55 175 Mike Dunleavy, SG/SF, CHI Minutes will come as the backup to Deng and Butler.
56 178 Courtney Lee, SG/SF, BOS The steal a game gives him a little value in hodgepodge backcourt.
57 186 ↑ Caron Butler, SF, MIL Delfino injury opens the door for some spot scoring, but his lack of other stats keeps him low for me.
58 187 ↑ James Anderson, SG/SF, PHI Interesting that he might start, and that’s about it.  Sixers look awful.
59 189 Shane Battier, SG/SF, MIA When you’re going this deep, it’s gonna start getting ugly.
60 193 DeMarre Carroll, SF/PF, ATL I always thought he was underrated, will see decent minutes as reserve 2/3.
61 196 ↓ Carlos Delfino, SG/SF, MIL Probably missing the opener, doesn’t need his foot too healthy to camp behind the three point line.

    I’m in a 14 team h2h dynasty league, would u trade trey burke, lillard favors for calderon lebron? Btw it’s a 2 pg and 2 c league. I have rubio noah and kantar. So I think I could take the hit at pg and c. What ya think? FYI after this deal the rest of my team consists of rubio thadeous young klay tyreke evans noah kantar kevin martin. See any additional moves to make?

      @Ryan: Yeah I’d make that trade you get one of the best two players in the NBA and LeBron still has years ahead of him. Nothing really sticks out as moves to make, I’m not a big Klay Thompson fan, but don’t necessarily think you need to shop him.

    In a 16 team league I am looking at Luigi Datome at SF and Goodwin SG late picks

      @Mike: Lovvvvvvve Goodwin. I think having him in my top 200 http://basketball.razzball.com/official-razzball-2013-2014-fantasy-basketball-rankings at 185 is much higher than I’ve seen anywhere else. I buy Datome as a nice deep sleeper too, just so much uncertainty with how the new-look Pistons rotation will pan out – they’ve still got Singler (who I’m not a big fan of) to give some minutes to as well, but could see Datome providing value.

    No Caron Butler in the rankings must mean that he is going underlooked. Starter minutes in Milwaukee means that he will get his counting stats as long as he stays healthy.

      @George: Butler will make my adjustment. At the time of these rankings, Delfino was looking at more minutes then he had a setback with his foot a few days ago. I don’t buy the quote That Butler is the second option offensively from Larry Drew, but even with a lot of rock in his hands he doesn’t do much else but score. His health plus Delfino’s situation make a lot in flux there.

    Gilpie,

    Love your rankings but JR Smith ahead of Gordon Hayward?
    Dontcha think Hayward can break out some this season?

    I like your sova, & Jeff Green love but not so much your “he hate me” on Hey Hey Hayward.

    peace out,
    Scrap

      @Scrappy:

      gilpie my apologies – i see you are WAY higher on Hey Hey Hayward than ESPN.

        @Scrappy: Haha glad you know the he hate me reference. Still have the jersey! Yea I’m not the biggest Smith fan, but he is what he is and I have him I think a shade lower than most. But yea, definitely like Heyward a lot, I like what he did in the 2nd half and will be leaned on for constant offense. Way Hey high on Heyward!

    Gilp,

    I remember in the playoffs Shumpert looked super fast and JR Smith struggled. I was surprised the Knicks then promptly gave Smith a new contract.

    DO you think Shumpert can take minutes or do you think they committed to JR financially so they will give him the bulk of the minutes?

    BTW I like that you are willing to go against the grain on rankings. Anyone can tweak rankings here and there but you have the brass to move guys significantly up or down. I like it because you explain why as well.

    I am going to my eye on this site now.

    thanks,
    Scrap

      @Scrappy: Thanks man! Yeah I’m hoping to have an update to the rankings up late tonight or tomorrow with the Westbrook news and some other changes. I do think Shumpert improves and gets enough run to be fantasy worthy, but yea – Smith will need to be the #2 option and I think gets comparable offensive work. Thanks again for reading looking forward to havin ya!
