Man, you guys don’t even know. There’s been a mob outside my house every night for the past two weeks carrying tiki torches and screaming, “We want the Top 200 with stats!” Or at least I think that’s what they were saying. Anyways, big shout out to Rudy who waved his magic wand and created the beautiful looking spreadsheet below. It even sorts. Here is Rudy in his lab:

Before I continue, RCLs are up and running, so come one come all. See if you are truly the best of the best. Sign up HERE.

Just a few bullet points regarding the updated rankings.

  • I moved KAT from #4 to #2. The more I thought about it and the more I participated in drafts, that center eligibility, combined with the across-the-board stats he puts up puts him ahead of Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry. By the time your second round pick comes around, potentially eight centers are off the board.
  • I moved Isaiah Thomas way down. I wanted to punt him out of the Top 200, but I love him too much. Here’s the thing, while the headlines are saying he could be back in January, I have some serious doubts. Take a look at these quotes: “Thomas was advised by the Celtics to take three months off following the Eastern Conference finals to heal the hip, and the inactive recovery plan did not bear many improvements.” That’s not good. But wait, it gets even better. “Since adopting the Cavs’ plan – which includes a nutritional approach – Thomas has made gains both physically and mentally, sources said, as he has experienced positive results.” What?! That’s some good ass food they got in Cleveland. It’s not done, though. “Thomas’ rehab has gone so well the Cavs have had to urge him to be patient with his eventual return date…The team is also ruling out surgery as an option…However, they could explore a more radical treatment option such as a platelet-rich plasma injection into the hip as time goes on.” I don’t know about you but my BS antenna just bugged the F out. Of course, the risk/reward is worth it at some point in the draft. Unfortunately, I’ve been seeing him go as high as the third round. There is no way I’m spending that high-draft capital for a, in my opinion, huge risk.
  • With Alan Williams done for the year due to knee surgery, I replaced him with Alex Len.
  • Markieff Morris had sports hernia surgery and will most likely miss 15 games. I knocked him down from #81 to #163.

Alright, let me know if I missed anything. Here you guys go:

    Why is kyrie ranked so low? I have the 10th pick in a 16m 11cat league. Can’t justify jokic at 10 and it looks like it’ll be the likes of wall, lbj, dmc available. Kyrie seems like he could be fun to own, and is still elite for the pg position. Are we sure 10 is a reach for him?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Hamtime: I just don’t think he automatically replicates the stats from last year’s IT. In addition, I do think some of his stats in Cleveland were outliers. He averaged 25.2 ppg on 19.7 shots. I think 16 shots per game with a 21 ppg average seem more likely. The Celtics have a bunch of capable scorers, so I don’t think the volume will necessarily be there. I do think the efficiency and assists might be better, though. I just can’t put him ahead of Lillard or Wall. Can you?

    no love for Mirotic in top200??

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I’ve never been a Mirotic guy. Plus, how many minutes is he going to get? He may get a lot early in the season, but Markkanen is going to soak up most of them as the season progresses. With that said, I didn’t put him into the initial Top 200 because he wasn’t signed yet. In my most recent update, I did overlook him. So, he would probably make it into the Top 200. I’ll take a look and see where I’d slot him in. Thanks for the heads up

      • iStylei says:
        (link)

        @Son:

        You think Markkanen will play more? I think Mirotic will get at least 25mins, the bulls are so bad though who knows what will happen on any given night, Mirotic can also play SF

        Usage will only go up with Wade gone, he’s good for a steal and a block, couple 3’s and some rebounds to go with 15 points if he gets decent minutes? big upside and downside i think, Top50 player last 2 months of season..

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @iStylei: You may very well be right, especially since Paul Freaking Zipser is slated to start at small forward. I really have no motivation to put Mirotic into the Top 200, but you are right. He does probably deserve to be there. I’ll take a look and try and figure out a spot for him. As for Markkanen, I do think he will eventually soak up most of the minutes. What possible reason could the Bulls have for not giving him time?

    Hey Son! Where have you been my Fantasy god??? Lol kidding aside, there is an on-going trade now, my Dipo for Jrue. We both know that I have been lacking assists based on my draft last time. Any thoughts on this?

    Thanks as always!

            @Son:

            Hey Son this might be annoying already for consultations, but I have come up with another trade, and this is for Klay+Dipo for Green+Horford. The reason why I like this better than Dipo-Jrue is the benifit of getting Reb/Assists/Steals/Blocks that I will be able to get. Since I have tons of source in 3pts/pts. I think it would not hurt me that much losing them for other aspect of cat. What’s your view on this? Below is the list of my team, again lol.

            Jokic
            Turner
            Klay Thompson // Green
            Oladipo // Horford

    Son! What do you think of my Durant & CJ mcc
    For Curry & Draymond? It’s a 9 cat keeper and my other keeper is porz.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Wow. I gotta side with the KD/CJ side

  5. Mad Beach Bums says:
    (link)

    Damn ok. Haven’t pulled the trigger yet but almost. Any reasons? Steph and kd are close and dray is generally ranked a few spots higher than cj. It’s a massive loss in points & fg% but I get elite steals, great ast, 3’s. But the points is a quite a big hit.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      It’s a compelling trade no doubt. Always have to consider roster construction and such. With that said, in a vacuum, KD is the best player and I’m very bullish on CJ. With that said, you pretty much showed the pros/cons, which brings me to the second sentence. Roster construction.

  6. Waffles says:

    Hello son. Thinking about my leagues settings. Do you prefer h2h most cats or h2h each cat? Also, for a 10 teamer, Im wondering if a starting lineup of PG PG SG SG SF SF PF PF C C U U would be fun w adding more strategic importance of positional eligibility compared to alternative lineup configs. Do you have an opinion? Thx

  7. Emre says:
    (link)

    I just did my league’s draft. I select 14th in a 14 team. Boooo. League has the PG, G, SG, SF, PF, F C, UTIL, UTIL, UTIL, BN, BN, BN positions. Stats are FG%, FTM, Ft%, 3PTM, 3PT%, PTS REB AST ST BLK TO. Ta ta ta taaaa: (14) CP3, (15) Gobert, (42) Rubio, (43) BenSimmons (is it wrong believing him?), (70) DSJ (Also the same), (71) Dwight Howard (punt ft%”maneuver), (98)JJ Redick ,(99) Pau Gasol, (126) Bazemore, (127) Wade, (154) Smart, (155) Holmes, (182) Jaylen Broen. Can you evaluate my decision? Thx.

    • Son

      Son says:

      @Emre: Love the CP3/Gobert combo. I don’t think it’s wrong to believe in Simmons. There’s just a lot of unknown right now. Light on 3s.

      • Emre says:
        (link)

        @Son: Understood sir. I will try to land 3p with a few trades. Maybe Gasol can go.

    Hello Son, love what you’ve been doing so far dude!! Need a little advice from you on fixing up my team…

    Just finished up a 9 cat roto, 8 team league draft. Snagged the first pick which became more difficult the closer it got to draft time, however this is what I managed…

    Giannis (1), Dame (16), Myles Turner (17), Kevin Love (32), Conley (33), Schroder (48), Batum (49), Oladipo (64), Randle (65), Isaiah Thomas (80), Willy Hernangomez (81), Gary harris (96), Enes Kanter (97)

    Feeling like im light on bigs and will have a free spot with IT on the IR for a bit, anyone in particular you like as a FA pick up?? (thought about chriss, jamychal green, Dennis smith jr, bazemore or welcome to any other suggestions)

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Jay: You know my love for DSJ, but I think the potential of Chriss is too much to pass up

  9. SCCD says:
    (link)

    I’m on H2H standard 9cat dynasty league. We have 3 keepers. 2 of my keeper players are Steph and Harden. I’m torn between Draymond back and Embiid. I’m leaning towards Embiid but I’m not sure how his health will play along. I’ll be picking 9th on the draft maybe I could snatch Draymond on the draft (or not). Your thoughts?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Really depends on your risk tolerance and philosophy. Personally, I’d go with Embiid as the ceiling is League winning-seque. But, the injury concern is real. If you can’t handle that variance, go with Draymond. If not, YOLO

      • SCCD says:
        (link)

        @Son: Still not decided though with Dray or Embiid. lol. On another note, how would you build your team if you have Steph and Harden on your team?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @SCCD: Such a tough one. Comes down to risk tolerance. If you have a YOLO mindset, you go Embiid because if he plays 60 games, he could be a league winner. Dray has such a crazy floor though.

          Not sure I’d want taint the FT% by chasing the block specialists. Would probably want to accentuate the strengths you have and fill in with like Gorgui Dieng, James Johnson, Dewayne Dedmon, WCS, etc…

  10. Jake says:

      @Spencer: I would rather keep the chart without those categories. I like to keep things as clean and simple as possible. If that’s something that most of the community clamors for, though, I could include them for next year.

      • Spencer says:
        (link)

        @Son: I understand. Most people will not find any use for it. However, I do believe it to be crucial information. So if this can be the starting of the clamoring, that would be nice.

        For instance, Dwight Howard was 2x worse than Clint Capela in FT% last year due to FTA. Comparing their 53.3% to 53.1% would not tell you that.

          Son says:

    Hello,
    Lonzo’s pts are extremely high if you think of his % and the only 1 projected three. You have missed something there I believe. Either his % should be higher, or his pts or his 3s(doubled at least to even reach 15). 15 pts on 39% is too many.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @lis9: Yeah, you’re right. I had his FG% much higher initially, but I overcompensated on the downside to balance out my fandom.

  13. Dusty says:
    (link)

    Great work! One thing though, I think Tristan Thompson’s ft% got doubled when put in.
    Any good punt ft% players you’d particularly target in the middle or later rounds?

    I got a Draft later (12 hrs from time of posting). 20 teams 9 cats
    I got Westy, kemba, Aaron, Bogdanovic (rookie pick)as keepers. I will be drafting 18th and Im planning to take 2 Centers b2b.. Capela, chriss gortat, WCS Embiid (if he falls that low coz of injury). but checking the draft board Roco and Ariza “might” be available. If any of the 2 wing falls at the 18th should I make a play for them and take a C on the next rd? Worried about lacking Bigs esp having less usable big later at the draft. Im playing on ESPN so position eligibility might scarce.

    Value or Need? What do you think guys.

    So I got the 10th overall pick in an 18-teamer, 9-cat league. Who should I go for? Been thinking maybe Chris Paul, or Jokic then punt points altogether then build around %/AST/D-Stats/3s. Next pick should be at #27, if I went for CP3, I probably should partner him with a center that can provide high volume boards, decent FG with serviceable blocks. But the problem is that the Whitesides and the Goberts are already gone by this time. Hah. And I don’t wanna take DeAndre early!

    I might also take CJ McCollum next for the elite %, 3s and the ability to dish out dimes, though his lack of steals is such a bummer to be honest. Or should I go for Paul George instead if he were still available? His steals will still be there, but I’m not so sure about everything else with Russell and Melo as his teammates.

    Next is pick at #46. I’m thinking of nabbing either Vucevic or DeAndre here.

    BUT IF I DID GO FOR JOKIC… I’m thinking of getting Conley next at 27, and then prolly DeAndre? What do you think, buddy?

    • Son

      Son says:

        @Son:

        At age 32, CP3 makes me wanna think he shouldn’t be drafted inside the top 10. Hah Jokic on the other hand lacks blocks! But is younger and hasn’t reached full potential yet! I’m really torn. Jokic though is perfect for punting blocks.. Hmm OK I’m lost. Hah

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @Dante Green: Yeah, a legitimate concern. I just love the new situation for CP3. As for Jokic, I do think he can get to over a block per game.

          If it was easy, it wouldn’t be fun!

    What’s good SON? So I’m in a 10-team keeper league (you get to keep eight) with an old-school scoring system. That is, you can start 3 guards, 3 forwards, and 2 centers on any given matchup night and you score the three highest categories out of points, assists, rebounds, steals, and blocks. For example, if John Wall had a 22pt/8ast/3reb/4stl/0blk night, he would register 34 total points (i.e., points + assists + steals).

    That being said, here is my current roster that I need to cut down to eight:

    G – Victor Oladipo
    G – Zach LaVine*
    G – Ricky Rubio
    G – Seth Curry
    G – Josh Richardson
    G – Yogi Ferrell
    G/F – Kawhi Leonard
    G/F – Khris Middleton
    G/F – Jaylen Brown
    F – T.J. Warren
    F/C – Anthony Davis
    F/C – Andre Drummond
    F/C – Derrick Favors
    F/C – Nerlens Noel
    F/C – Dragan Bender

    The no-brainers are Davis, Leonard, Drummond, Oladipo, and Middleton. With the other three spots I’m thinking Favors, Noel, and LaVine.

    What do you think as far as keepers go?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I’d go Noel, Richardson, and Rubio

      • Slimcompoop says:
        (link)

        @Son: I have the #1 pick so will end up with either Lonzo Ball or Dennis Smith Jr. That’s why I was thinking keeping another big man in Favors over a guard. Speaking of drafting rookies, who would you take if you had the #1 overall pick of the litter?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @Slimcompoop: I get it. I like Favors, but there’s a lot of injury risk there. Plus, Rubio provides a lot in the valuable assist category. As much as I love DSJ, I’m going Ball. I love him a lot as well. I just think he’s a triple-dub threat every night

          • Slimcompoop says:
            (link)

            @Son: I was thinking the same thing as I’m a fan of Lonzo Ball having the reigns in L.A. However, when thinking about a keeper league, Ball kind of reminds me of Rajon Rondo whereas Smith Jr. could be a Damien Lillard type. Do you buy into those comparisons? Appreciate your feedback.

            • Son

              Son says:
              (link)

              @Slimcompoop: I think Ball shoots much better than Rondo. I love DSJ. He reminds me of Steve Francis

  19. Dave says:

    New to fantasy basketball….

    Entering an 8 team points league with no averages……espn so looking at their rankings (for others who will do it, not me).

    1) Big men like Drummond and DeAndre worth a ton here, right? We get points for double doubles and triple doubles too.
    2) Listening to podcasts, I’ve heard a consensus that big men are really good this year with SG coming later in the draft. Would it be viable to go with KAT 1st round and Jokic 2ns round? Or go small to start, say Greek Freak and (hopefully) LeBron to start then take the C in question 1) to round out roster?
    3) Who are some guys I should target more in points leagues and less in average driven leagues?

    I’ll probably have more questions soon:)

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Yes, the Drummonds and DJs of the world have elevated value. You can always find a SG. In that format, Lebron and Giannis are 1-2. Since every team will probably be stacked, you really need to differentiate yourself with category winners.

      • Dave says:
        (link)

        @Son:

        Thanks for the tip. 8 teamer makes it tough so I need to remember not to dig too deep. I think getting LeBron and Freak might be a stretch. Going by your rankings, you’d take Freak 1st, so regardless of where I pick, you’re suggesting I take him? He’s not ranked 1st at ESPN and they may just go by their rankings, meaning I get lucky,

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @Dave: I have the Freak #1, but that’s my personal bias. I think he and KAT are 1a/1b

  20. Ky says:
    (link)

    Yow! 12teams h2h, drafting 12th. Thinking of getting CP3 and Cousins or should i go for double bigs early by getting Cousins and Gobert. Which way should I go?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I like both paths. It’s like asking me which child I like more. Whichever way you go, it defines the rest of your draft

  21. bigken says:
    (link)

    Hey great sortable ranks! Intrigued by the CP3 love. I have #1 pick in my 10 team 8 cat H2H league (no TO). We keep 5 guys for $45 max, was planning on keeping Jokic $6, Kristaps ($9) Conley ($6) Middleton ($8) and Nurk ($5) and letting $14 Curry go to draft him #1 where his value resets to $12 and building up for long term.

    CP3 owner doesn’t have the room to keep him so I was expecting him to be the other option for #1 pick and wasn’t thrilled with him at 32 yo and having to share with Harden.

    Would you reconsider this approach? I traded $5 Parker and $5 A. Gordon for Conley, and a $5 Smart for Middleton (cap issues on both teams) so I’d look the fool for not keeping them.

    Thanks!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Unless the league can vote on moves and deduct points or something, who gives a shit. It’s your team so you do you. Often times, the most foolish decision is not acting when new information comes to light. Hunting for value is always a good thing, but not at the expense of getting better players. I’d keep Curry and grab CP3

      • Bigken says:
        (link)

        @Son:

        Thanks son!

        Who do you boot from that group factoring value, roster construct etc? FWIW guys go up $1 per year, $15 max.

  24. Richie says:

    Some of your rankings are head scratchers…

    You have Lonzo Ball in the top 50 but if he were to actually post your projections he would not be inside the top 100.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I don’t think projections and rankings always correlate. Projections are usually very conservative in nature, while rankings incorporate other variables, such as upside and where I’d draft a player.

  27. Mark says:
    (link)

    Mr. Son,

    I’m in a 12 team auction league, 15 players, $200 initial salary. I can get Kawhi at $75 for one year. That seems pretty high to me, but would appreciate your thoughts.

    I’m planning to keep Avery Bradley at $15, Marc Gasol $27, Elfrid Payton $9, Ricky Rubio $16, though if any of those look egregious please let me know. Thanks!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Yeah. That’s too high. I think Bradley and Rubio are a little high, more so Bradley

      • Mark says:
        (link)

        @Son: Thanks for the quick reply. Do you think Bradley regresses in rebounds, or is $15 just overpriced even if he repeats last year? I’m leaning towards keeping Rubio for the assists, though I have gone back and forth a bit.

        I also have the ability to keep Elfrid for 2 years at $14 per year, but I think that’s kind of risky…

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @Mark: He won’t dish out many dimes and the rebound number from last season may be an outlier.

          I’m with you on Rubio.

          Elfrid is risky but there’s a high ceiling. All depends on your risk tolerance

          • Mark says:

                    @Son: Ha, sounds good, thanks. In that case…I got offered Jrue ($11 for one year, $16 for 2) for Rubio ($16 for one year, $21 for 2). I think Rubio is just better for a year, even for $5 more, but it’s a bit tempting.

                    Also, if I can get one of these guys in a trade at these prices, would you keep any? Wall at 50, Beverly at 6, W. Hernangomez at 10, Millsap at 44, Barnes at 9. I think yes to Wall, no to the others, but Millsap and to a lesser extent Barnes not far off. Thanks again.

      I’m not a big punt category kind of guy. With that said, if you do it have to have a plan on really being dominant in the other categories to make up for the punt. Ask yourself where you are dominant and where you are weak? That will guide you on where to go. Some really good content will be coming out soon from some of our new writers on punting categories. Make sure to check those out

  30. Hoz says:
    (link)

    This might be a stupid question. But what do you type into the blank box so turnovers aren’t factored into the rankings? I play in an 8 cat so would be interesting to see the difference without the to’s. Thanks heaps!

    • Son

      Good question. I’m not sure you can do that the way the table is configured. I will try and find out.

      • Hoz says:
        (link)

        Awesome thanks! Would make the table great for those using punt strategies as you could just turn off points, or FG etc.

          Son says:
          (link)

          @Hoz: Now that I think about it, it doesn’t make a difference. The rankings were done by me for 9-cat. For 8-cat, I would have to manually rank them separately. When you sort by category, it just ranks them by that specific category.

    I was offered Blake Griffin at $44 next year in a $200 auction league (12 team). Without Paul his numbers could be career bests, but it’s steep especially given the injury risk. I’d be giving up guys I wasn’t planning to keep. What do you think? Thank you!

    we have a unique league where we play weekly H2H and 7 Cats (no %) only 3’s, pts, rebs, ass, blks, stls, To’s

      Doesn’t change that much. Mostly the same players, just tweaking the order a bit. You elevate LeBron and Gobert. Basically, look at the players with high/low percentages either from the field or charity stripe.

      Parker and Lavine due to injury. I have my doubts. Randolph could have been in, but I have concerns how many minutes he plays, especially later in the season. Could I have put him in? Sure, but I chose other players. As for Mirotic, I put the list together before he signed and did not include in the update. Was an oversight in my part.

    any rankings/advice for 10 cat leagues (OREB) h2h?

    thanks

    • Son

      Son says:

      @waffles: Yes. Will try and keep it updated, but not sure how often yet.

      As for OREB, really elevates Gobert and Whiteside, but makes Drummond and Howard more viable. KAT and Jokic get that much better.

    Points league with 8 keepers…I’m keeping Kawhi, Davis, Drummond, Middleton, Oladipo, Favors, and Noel. I have one more slot and have been debating between keeping Rubio or LaVine for a couple weeks. I have the #1 pick and will be taking Lonzo Ball.

    Rubio had a great 2nd half last year and seems to be in a better location with Utah. I know LaVine is out till mid-November and will be eased back into action, so that’s not that appealing, competing wise. However, the Bulls are TERRIBLE and a fully healthy LaVine (say January) is going to be their #1 option.

    It is a keeper league. Who would you pick between Rubio and LaVine going forward? Thanks for the feedback.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Slimcompoop: You make good points. I prefer Rubio, though. Keep in mind that I’ve never been a big Lavine guy and I’m always leery of guys coming off injury.

    I ended up getting 1st overall pick in 14 team 9-cat Roto, i’d love to hear your opinion on it.
    I really think i have a good chance placing top 2 bar any injuries to my team.
    1. Giannis
    2. Horford
    3. Millsap
    4. D’Angelo
    5′ Lonzo
    6. Pat Beverly

    16th DeMarcus Cousins

    Waivers yet to go through, not much there but thinking Jeremy lamb or Mudiay if by some miracle he snags the starting gig.

    • Son

      Son says:

      Who were planning on selecting at 9? KUUUUUUUUUUUUZZZZZZZma. Love it!

      I’d rather have Lamb than Mudiay

      • Fabio says:
        (link)

        @Son:
        Was high on AD or LeBrob by looking back glad I didn’t go LeBron. 2 people ended up punting FTs and if I went LB would of done the same. Yeah Lamb was also my first thought. Anyone I should try target in teams that may strengthen my squad?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @Fabio: AD would’ve been nice….or it could’ve been the worst! As for your question, can’t say because I don’t know who’s available

    Hey SON. I’m a long time fantasy baseball player (2003 and on) but never done fantasy basketball. A friend of mine has invited me to join a league this year though. Any suggestions on where to get a decent primer on basic fantasy basketball strategy? Thanks!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      You’re there already! We have tons of content on draft strategies, but it’s the community that makes it great. Ask away. Either myself or someone else will try and help you as much as we can.

      • TheRealAdamKing says:
        (link)

        @Son: sweet. Yeah I love razzball’s baseball page (Grey’s the man). You’ll definitely see me here a lot. Have some new stats and new names to get to know. First question: does FB tend to be ‘top heavy’? Like, how big an advantage is draft position on winning a league? I’m sure that depends on the league settings but in general is there a significant difference between 1-10? 1-15?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @TheRealAdamKing: Yes, Grey is the man! Basketball is top heavy, but you don’t need a top 10 pick to win. As you said, league settings definitely skews things one way or the other. There are many paths and strategies to bring victory, so don’t fret.

    16 team h2h 10 cat (OREB)

    PG- Chris Paul (pick #15)
    SG- Gary Harris (79) woo
    G- Allen Crabbe (143) he doesnt excite me but at this point I needed a G and saw you have him at #71. is the hope that he’ll bomb some 3’s with decent %s?
    G- Normal Powell (178)
    SF Aaron Gordon (50) is 50 high? I wanted him and he wouldn’t have lasted longer
    PF Myles Turner (18)
    F Derrick Favors (82) I think he can be a steal at 82
    F Taurean Prince (111)
    C Jusuf Nurkic (47) I’d like to go safer at pick 47 in a 16 teamer but I just like his game so much
    Util TJ Warren (114)

    Bench John Collins (146)
    Bench Alex Len (175)
    Bench Stanley Johnson (207)
    Bench Jonathon Simmons (210)

    what do you think? any weaknesses? thanks

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @waffles: I probably have to put Crabbe lower, since he may not get as many minutes as I initially hoped. With that said, he’s going to chuck 3s and the Nets play at such a fast pace.

      I’m with you on Nurk. Love his game. Just hope he stays healthy.

      I love Gordon as well.

      A balanced squad.

  46. Q says:

    hey guys

    just had my main draft and as always you have been a big help, so would love to see what you think .

    Picked at 8 , 12 team h2h, 9 cat

    PG – CP3
    SG – Garry Harris
    SF – Kawhi leonard
    PF- Milsap
    C – Capella (man those C’s thin out but when he was still there i HAD to take CP3 with my 2nd )

    G – Shroeder (Im high on him this year)
    F – Ariza
    Util – Dennis Smith Jr
    Util – Nerlens Noel
    Util – Taureen Prince

    Bench – Josh Richardson
    Bench – Dwayne Dedmon
    Bench – Chandler parsons (streamer spot )

    I’m happyish though don’t like where I’m at with assists. There’s a fair bit of boom or bust in the mid-late rounds which isnt normaly how I draft so it’s got me nervy!

    Would love to hear thoughts and any suggestions

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Q: You know I love CP3 so….I’m a little concerned with Kawhi, though. That injury is a little scary. Big men do thin out fast but I like how you got Dedmon and Noel later. I’ve gone the same path as well. Personally, I think mid-late rounds is when you should go upside. You play to win the game!

      • Q says:
        (link)

        @Son:

        ha makes me feel a little better man, cheers

        Anything you feel i should target via trade or wire? I feel a little low on assists and it’s freaking me out as my teams are usually strong there

        Kawhi I’m reading it’s precautionary (fingers friggen crossed!)

        • Son

    Hey,

    I’ve been following razzball basketball for a few yrs now with JB, so I look forward to reading your content this season! Quick question, I just finished my draft last night and picked up Batum in the mid rounds not realizing he is going to be out a few months…does his rank here in the mid 40s reflect the injury? Thanks for the time.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Vinh: Thanks Vinh! No, he should be much lower now

    Just completed my draft, 10 team, H2H, 9-cat. I had the 5th overall pick and I mostly utilized your rankings above.

    1 Antetokounmpo
    2 Chris Paul
    3 Myles Turner
    4 Paul Milsap
    5 Brook Lopez
    6 Jeff Teague (I passed up Nurkic here since I had 3 bigs already)
    7 Avery Bradley
    8 Gary Harris
    9 Marquese Chriss
    10 Jamaal Murray
    11 Rodney Hood
    12 Taurean Prince
    13 Josh Richardson

    What are your thoughts?

    Some notable free agents are Alex Len, TJ Warren, John Collins, Joe Ingles, Kelly Oubre, Moe Harkless, and Tristan Thompson. Thanks!

      Jeremy Lamb, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Justin Holiday, Hollis-Jefferson, Kris Dunn and Nicolus Batum (there is an IR spot on our roster) too that I am currently not utilizing.

    Razzup!
    First Thing: Love your engagement on the site!

    Second Thing:
    12 Team. 9 Cat H2H, 1 keeper. Pick #9, then snake:
    9) Harden
    21)
    28)
    What does your gut say about these next two picks?

    Third Thing: you may have covered this somewhere before, but I’m a little late to the party.. did JB and Slim get canned or something?

    Annndddd Go!

    Thanks in Advance

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @NYFantaC: Thanks!

      Well, who was kept? What platform are you using?

      As for JB and Slim, I believe real life issues arose. You’d have to ask them for particulars, though.

      • NYFantaC says:
        (link)

        @Son: thanks for the quick reply. My keeper is Harden. I got the 9th pick.. draft starts after the keeper round, so my next picks are 21 & 28. On ESPN.

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          No prob. Who did everyone else keep?

          • NYFantaC says:
            (link)

            @Son:
            The usual suspects,
            Curry
            Durant
            Westbrook
            KAt
            Jokic
            Kawhi
            Wall
            Gobert
            Cousins
            Lebron
            ..
            none of these guys would ever get to pick 21 anyway.. lol

            • Son

              Son says:
              (link)

              @NYFantaC: Got it. Wasn’t about those guys falling…more about which players wouldn’t be available. Anyways, looking at ESPN projections, you’re looking at one of the PGs: Kyrie, Lillard, Lowry….or one of the SGs: McCollum or Beal…or one of the SFs: George or Hayward. PFs: Kristaps, Myles, Millsap. Cs: Myles, Gasol.

              I’d take Myles there and scoop up the last PG in that tier….may probably be Conley if one of the above three are gone.

    Razzup Son!

    Quick question for FA pickups(12-team H2H standard 9 cat):

    available FAs -> Harkless, Winslow, Jamychal Green, Kuzma, Swanigan
    my worst players(according to your ranks) -> M.Williams, W.Chandler, Bazemore, D.Collison, Olynyk

    Would you swap out any of the players for the FAs? thanks in advance!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Upside FTW: I’d swap Kuzma for Bazemore, but I’m a Lakers homer. Also like Swanigan, Harkless, and Winslow. Worst case, you can always find a player like Bazemore.

    Hi Son,

    Ive been offered with KD and Millsap for my Giannis and Ibaka. 10 teams 9 Cat H2H. What do you think?

    Rest of the team:
    Steph
    Klay
    Myles
    Lowry
    THJ
    Chriss
    Gary Harris
    Monroe
    Brogdon
    Noel

    I’ll dispose multiple players in one team (Klay, Monroe and Murray)

    • Son

      Son says:

      It’s a fair trade for you. I like Millsap alot and KD is only two spots lower than G for me. With that said, I do have G at 1 for reasons

    No Seth Curry ??

          @SDub88: Not sure it will be up by tomorrow. I had someone scheduled to do it, but haven’t heard back. This is something I will work on for next year for sure. There are some sites that give auction values. Use that as a ballpark figure for players and allocate a plan accordingly. Keep positions in a tier. As the draft unfolds, you will see how much over/under you are and then can allocate resources accordingly. As always, heed the wisdom of Bruce Lee and be like water

    With apparent neck injury to Rodney Hood last night is it too early to move on from him to Donovan Mitchell, Justin Holliday, Lauri Markannen, Alex Len, Dejounte Murray or Jeremy Lamb? My other drop candidates are Jamaal Murray and Josh Richardson. My biggest positions of need are Pf/C and PG but I wouldn’t pass on a superior talented player at another position. Thanks for your help!

      Another possible issue I may have is that I have 3 Denver players on my roster, Murray, Harris and Milsap.

      PG: Paul, Teague, J.Murray
      SG: A.Bradley, Harris, Hood
      SF: Antetokounmpo, Prince, Richardson
      PF: Milsap, Chriss

    Hi Son,

    How do you think my team will fair on 10 Teams 9CAT H2H league.

    1) Giannis
    2) Steph
    3) Klay
    4) Lowry
    5) Myles Turner
    6) Serge Ibaka
    7) Chriss
    8) THJ
    9) Nerlens
    10) Monroe
    11) Gary Harris
    12) Jamal Murray
    13) Jeremy Lin

    Feels like I’m lacking rebs and blocks.

      @John: Yeah, backcourt is stacked, but frontcourt is your weakness.

  65. jimmy says:
    (link)

    Do your rankings for the top 8 change at all if you take injuries out of the equation? If you look at the #’s provided it seems as though Giannis’ numbers are “worse” (loses 3’s, FT, pts) than the other top 6-7 guys.

      @jimmy: Projections are conservative in nature. In addition, straight projections do not take into account variables such as positional depth, upside, personal preference, etc.

  66. J says:

    Hey Son,

    I’ll be drafting at the 11th spot in a standard 12 man, 9-cat H2H league and (as usual with late draft positions), struggling to decide on game plan for the first two rounds.

    Current ideas (assuming none of the top talent falls to 11) are CP3 & Gobert, Cousins & Lillard, or Jokic & any of the previously mentioned 4. Jokic & CP3/Wall would be nice, but I don’t expect that option to be available.

    Would love to hear your thoughts on a preferred start. Thanks!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Drafting from that spot is really interesting. There are so many paths you can take and you are going to get 2 really good players. The Wall/Gobert combo is a really good one. You know I love Jokic. For sure, I’d want at least one big though. The question comes to pairing him with another big or getting assists. Just a matter of what you feel comfortable with getting later in the draft. I’ve probably sided with the 2 bigs there more often than not, but I’ve gone the assist route as well.

      • J says:
        (link)

        @Son:

        Right on, thanks! You’d rather Wall/Gobert over CP3/Gobert?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @J: I like CP3/Gobert better, but I’m super high on CP3 this season. Viz would go Wall/Gobert for sure, and I have no problem with that. It’s probably the right way to go, but like I said, I’m super high on CP3 so….

    Hi Son,

    What’s your take on Robert Covington now that Sixers have Fultz, Simmons, Reddick and Embiid next season?

    Who wins in Klay + Monroe for Horford + RoCo?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @John: RoCo is going to be fine. The periphery stats will be there and he’s going to get a ton more open looks.

      Really tough to say without team/league context. In a vacuum, I prefer the Horford/RoCo side.

There are 5 guys that stand out to me who you have significantly higher than their ADP… Taurean Prince, Dewayne Dedmon, Josh Richardson, Jaylen Brown, and Thon Maker.

    Hi from Spain. Mostly thanks to your ranking i chose this in a 18players 9cat h2h league:

    1. (15) DeMarcus Cousins NO – PF,C
    2. (22) Myles Turner Ind – PF,C
    3. (51) Victor Oladipo Ind – PG,SG
    4. (58) Jeff Teague Min – PG

    8. (130) Dwyane Wade Cle – PG,SG

    10. (166) Alex Len Pho – PF,C
    11. (195) P.J. Tucker Hou – SG,SF

    I do like my team, and I guess you too, as I took many players you like, but I have a problem. I am thinking ahead and in week 21 (quarter finals) IND, PHO, DEN and DEN plays only 3 games, and in the same days. This way I’m having few players playing the other days. Do you consider this things in the draft? I guess I have to trade, don´t I?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I love the start with Cousins and Myles. I think you’re light on assists, though. As for the playoffs, I don’t think about that at the draft. Get there first and then deal with it. So much changes. Always look out for trades, but the waiver wire is where many leagues are won.

      • Pedro says:
        (link)

        @Son:

        Veeeery light, but those are the PGs i “found”… and I leaned more on the PFs (than on the SGs) at the end… Too many rebounds. I already offered rebounds for assits in my league, but not at any price, hehe. Thanks for your reply.

        Last year I had tooo many assits (With Harden, Schroeder, Frazier and Randle).

        Thanks for your quick reply.

        HI Son, thanks for answering. It was kind of assumed decision to not target the assists, in order to get stronger in other categories.

          @Jeff Aces: From a pure value perspective, possibly, but….you’re getting the best player in the deal. The 1st rd pick will likely be a lower pick. Booker is a nice player but he’s very one-dimensional. You know I love Ingram and he could develop into a superstar, but he’s not there yet and there’s a chance he doesn’t get there. You’re getting arguably a top 4 player.

      @waffles: Ha! That is the puzzle that you must figure out!!

      I moved Kawhi down, put in Kuzma, and made a couple ancillary moves. I think Monk went up. I forgot the others

  87. Bryce as Nice says:

    Hey, nice column. Thanks.

    I’m new and just drafted. 8 team points league where this is the scoring system:

    Points (PTS) 1
    Blocks (BLK) 1
    Steals (STL) 1
    Assists (AST) 1
    Rebounds (REB) 1
    Turnovers (TO) -1
    Field Goals Made (FGM) 1
    Free Throws Made (FTM) 1
    Double Doubles (DD) 10
    Triple Doubles (TD) 20
    Quadruple Doubles (QD) 30

    So I loaded up on PF and C. Maximum 4 C per team. Here’s my team:

    PG – Bledsoe
    SG – Hayward
    SF – Middelton
    PF – Jokic
    C – Towns
    G – Rubio
    F – Saric
    Util – D. Jordan, Gobert, Capela
    BE – Bradley, Favors
    IR – I. Thomas

    I will move Thomas to the IR once the season starts, leaving me with an open slot. Do you see a weakness anywhere? Did I mismanage the draft? With only 8 teams and small rosters, there are some really nice players available. Top 10 ranked are:

    Ilyasova, Dirk, Harris, Brogdon, Mirotic, T. Booker, Warren, both Morris’

    C available are Kanter, R. Lopez and Noel, all in there, but I already have 4. Thoughts?

    • Son

      Son says:

      I think you approached the draft correctly. I would’ve done the same thing loading up on those bigs. You good.

    Hey Son!,

    10 Team – H2H – Had the 10th pick

    Great work on this article. I wasn’t intentionally punting anything during my draft last night and from what I can tell, I ended up extremely balanced/average across all categories and not great or terrible in any categories.

    I’m noticeably thin at Center, having only got Dedmon after taking Whiteside in round 2. R. Lopez, Kaminsky, Olynyk available.

    Do you see a punt category here? I’m thinking maybe points? I ended up with three guys from Tad’s punt points list. I could shop DeRozan (already have an offer for Schroder)?

    Chris Paul
    Hassan Whiteside
    DeMar DeRozan
    Victor Olidipo
    A-ARon Gordon
    Trevor Ariza
    Robert Covington
    Brandon Ingram
    Dewayne Dedmon
    Reggie Jackson
    Tyreke Evans
    Justin Holiday

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @RICE: I’m not a big punt guy, but if there is one category I usually don’t put a high emphasis on, it’s points. I’m not a big DeRozan guy, so I’m good with Schroder for him. Lopez is a nice, solid C to have.

      • RICE says:
        (link)

        @Son: Thanks Son! If I bring in Schroder for DeRozen I can easily lose one of the later round guards for Lopez.

        Would you rather lose Jackson or Evans (I like holding the Holiday flyer)?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @RICE: Evans. Holiday is a very nice flyer.

      @Andrew: You should dominate big man stats! Impressive stable you acquired. Yeah, you punted assists so I wouldn’t trade for a PG.

    10 team H2H keeper… I kept only Draymond (costing me a 9th rounder lol)… I also just randomly drew the #1 Pick … Do I take KAT and never look back? (Giannis is only proj 1st rounder kept) … Or do I pair him w/ someone else? Thank you in advance!

      Son says:

      @Landisimo3: Wow. Nice! Man, really tough one. You can really go either way and I wouldn’t hate it. I’d probably teak Giannis, though.

      I like it. Very balanced. I’m worried about Willy, though.

  92. TheeHen4 says:

    Would you trade Gary Harris and Danilo Gallinari for CJ McCollum in a points league? I think I can pick up Taurean Prince from Waivers to replace Gallinari.

    • Son

      Son says:

      I love Harris this year, but I think I like the McCollum/Prince combo better

    10 team h2h 9 cat

    PG Kyle Lowry (pick 27)
    SG Victor Oladipo (47) didn’t think I’d be an Oladipo owner this year.. maybe if he gets off to a good start I’ll shop him since I got Bradley and Harris and like them a lot
    SF Aaron Gordon (54)
    PF Blake Griffin (34)
    C Karl Anthony Towns (7)
    U Rudy Gobert (14) in hindsight with M Turner available at 27, maybe would have taken Kyrie or Lillard here
    U Robert Covington (67)

    B Avery Bradley (74)
    B Dennis Smith Jr (87)
    B Gary Harris (94)
    B Marvin Williams (107)
    B TJ Warren (114)
    B Taurean Prince (127)
    B Dewayne Dedmon (134)

    Felt ok taking the health risk with Blake because its a shallow league… I think he’ll be a great source of out of position dimes

    Josh Richardson went undrafted… might like him better than my last 4 picks tbh…. not sure what this undisclosed injury is about

    was a tough call between Dedmon and Alex Len for last pick… Len went undrafted and I’m curious to see how many minutes he gets

    what do you think of this team? thanks

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @waffles: I like it. Blake is going to be awesome if he stays healthy. I like JRich a lot this year. I hear you on Dedmon vs Len. I think Dedmon gets the nod. Now, if Tyson gets traded from Phoenix, then….

      • waffles says:
        (link)

        @Son: It shows Taurean Prince being owned at 1.7% on ESPN right now. Kobe Bryant is at 11.1%…

    Hey, Son!

    What’s good, what’s good?

    So here it goes. I’m in a 20-men-league. Deeper than ocean, deeper than the sea. HAHA!

    I had the first pick so it was a bit hard on my end and reached players that was not supposed to be reached on that particular round.

    Greek Freak
    Lonzo Ball
    Nikola Vucevic – YEAH! I panicked. Managers we’re going all bigs on this round.
    George Hill – I’m not really sure about this pick but I have to
    Marcin Gortat
    Alex Len
    Ish Smith – TOO DEEP!
    De’Aaron Fox – I have no choice. I was about to pick rose on this round.
    Marcus Morris
    Michael Beasley – Dark horse for me
    Alec Burks – No one’s picking him and my brother already picked Smith jr.
    Cristiano Felicio – I have hopes! HAHA!

    So, do I make some moves now? And any player who I can target for trades? Also, who do you think is a weekly drop for my team.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Kris: Yeah, that’s rough. It’s tough to answer your questions because I have no context regarding your league and the other owners.

      • Kris says:
        (link)

        @Son:

        Well, our league is H2H points

        FG%, FT%, 3PTM, PTS, REB, AST, ST, BLK, TO

        Do I have the chance to at least make it to the playoffs. LOL!

    New to this, 10 team H2H. I used this top 200 list to draft my team, so thanks!

    PG – Chris Paul
    SG – V. Oladipo
    G – R. Rubio
    SF – D. Saric
    PF – Paul Milsap
    F – N. Vucevic
    C – KAT
    C – W. Hernangomez
    Util – A. Drummond
    Util – A. Bradley

    Bench – Taurean Prince, D. Dedmon, R. Hood, Dion Waiters

    Really good players are un-owned. Would you drop any of these guys for Thadeus Young, MKG, Teodosic, Jerian Grant, Jayson Tatum, Kuzma, Donovan Mitchell, or Jeremy Lamb?

    Nothing is better than this. Nothing!

      Ha! An amazing video. I’m not a big fan of Drummond due to his FT% and have some concerns with Willy. With that said, I do like your squad. 10-team league, so there will always be guys on the waiver wire. I’d keep an eye on Tatum, Kuzma, and DMitch. Wouldn’t drop anyone you have for them right now, though

  100. J says:
    (link)

    H2h 8 Cat 10 team (No Turnovers, with a weird twist this year of points being a tie breaker, so added emphasis on points)

    PG: Damian Lillard, Ricky Rubio, Markelle Fultz
    SG: Oladipo, Gary Harris, Reddick
    SF: Durant, Taurean Prince, Josh Richardson
    PF: Whiteside, Kevin Love,
    C: Vucevic, Gortat (dunno about these two guys, kind of panicked both slid pretty far).

    Yeah feeling most unsure about having Vuc and Gortat, concerned about the lack of blocks from them but maybe Whiteside will make up for some of that. But what do you think of the roster overall? Anyone you would let go and open up a roster spot for daily acquisitions when I’m behind in games played?

    Thanks man

    • Son

      Son says:

      Naw. I think Vuc will be fine. I’d be more worried about Gortat, though.

    Hey Son-

    12 Team Keeper 10-cat:
