This is the best time of the year. Baseball is going to get real soon, pigskins are being thrown around, it’s the eye of the WNBA season, and my rankings start flowing out. I also forgot that my kids go back to school soon. I love my kids and all, but they need to start getting edumacated again. You scoff at the WNBA mention? I admit, I was not a fan in the early days, but those ladies got skills. In addition, they play beautiful basketball and the offensive sets that they run are poetry.

Since August 1st happened to be on a Tuesday, I’ll release rankings every Tuesday from here on out. Can one be semi-OCD? That’s an oxymoron right? Maybe I’m just a moron. Anyways, I get a little particular about things, like it would’ve bothered me if I started this whole endeavor on Monday the 31st. I know. I know. I’ve got issues, but lucky for you, the subscription is free!

A big shout-out to Slim, who provided projections and his thoughts and opinions.

1) Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis has it all. Literally. 20 letters in his name, three nicknames that I know of, 211 centimeters of height, is eligible at four positions for fantasy, and contributes in every category. By the way, the three nicknames are Greek Freak, The Alphabet, and Magic Giannson. It’s only logical to conclude that his herum would make Wilt jealous. So, G played the fourth-most minutes in the league last year. As DFS guru Al Zeidenfeld says, “Minutes equal money.” He was Top 20 in field goals made, free throws made and attempted, total rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, turnovers, points, field goal percentage….Whew. I think you get the picture. What’s crazy is that he will be 23 years old in December and there is still room for improvement! Namely, his outside shot. Really, my only concern regarding G is if Greece requires bailout funds from the United States and use G as a bargaining chip in the negotiations.

2) Kevin Durant

Durant was one of five players last season to be in the 1/1/1 club. That’s average one three pointer, one steal, and one block per game. That leaves four Easter eggs for you to look out for. Or you could just go look it up. It’s all about what you want from this experience. Anyways, the Warriors played at the fourth-fastest pace last season. That’s not expected to change this year. The scary thing regarding the Warriors is that they could be better this year. Developing and acquiring that chemistry and cohesion from last season could take this team to the next level, if that’s even possible. It all comes down to injury and motivation for this team. I think they go for history, as they are aware that there is a limited window with this squad. If that’s the case, KD is going to be a monster.

3) Steph Curry

If you can’t remember what I just wrote for KD, then you either used to smoke too much weed or you just smoked too much weed. Either way, I salute you. If you just scrolled down here and bypassed the KD section, please scroll back up and read it. Thanks. The only thing Curry does not contribute is in blocks.

4) Karl-Anthony Towns

I thought about putting KAT number one overall. After much thought, I just couldn’t put him any higher, but I wouldn’t hate on anyone that decided to go that route. He’s going to be 22 years old in November and this will be his third year in the NBA. So sick. He has not missed a game in his young career so far and was second in total minutes played last season. Thibs doesn’t mess around with his rotations, so KAT should be among the leaders in minutes played once again. He attempted 3.4 three pointers a game last season and shot 83% from the line. He’s 7′ 0″ 244 pounds!!! Some may be worried about the Jimmy Butler acquisition. Not me. KAT is going to get his. I think Andrew Wiggins gets hurt the most by the Butler get. The crazy thing is there is room for improvement, especially on defense. Could he join the 1/1/1 club this year? Not out of the realm of possibility. That assist number could also increase. I still can’t believe this is only going to be his third season. The more I think about it, the more I want to move him up.

5) Kawhi Leonard

If you thought Leonard was the second member of the 1/1/1 club, you thought wrong. To be fair, it was the most logical guess and he was a member in 2015, but he fell short in blocks last season. Like Giannis, Kawhi contributes across the board. The only negative is that Popovich smartly navigates the regular season NBA schedule by resting his players when appropriate. Leonard played 74 and 72 regular season games the past two years. The acquisition of Rudy Gay may give some pause to some, but I wouldn’t be too concerned. Especially after I read this article by Mike O’Connor.

6) Anthony Davis

All you need to know is that there is Twitter account named Anthony Davis [email protected] and far too often this is sent out:

When healthy, AD is a beast, but that’s the conundrum. He’s played more than 70 games in a season just once in his five year career. In addition, his numbers did dip slightly playing with Demarcus Cousins. I wanted to put AD lower, but I just couldn’t. The upside is just too much.

7) Chris Paul

I initially had CP3 at number four. After much thought, I decided to move him down, but I’m still very bullish on him this year. The Rockets operated at the third-fastest pace last season. D’Antoni is still the coach and he had some experience with a guy named Steve Nash, who just happened to win back-to-back MVPs with him. Side rant. That second MVP was such BS, as Kobe should’ve won it that year. Anyways, there’s risk here for sure. CP3 is 31 years old, the minutes per game have decreased in each of the past three seasons, and the number of games missed has increased each of the past three years. There’s also some guy named James Harden on the Rockets who was an MVP candidate himself last season and had an insane usage rate. With that said, I have no doubt that CP3 steps right in and dominates the ball. He’s an alpha dog and that’s why the Rockets brought him in, not to be a spot-up three point shooter. The Rockets have said they will stagger their minutes, so Harden will still have opportunities to get his, but he’s a very good spot up shooter and will get so many good open looks in that role. This move rejuvenates Paul. Can’t predict injury, so I won’t go there but he knows his window is small. There really wasn’t a better situation that Paul could have gone to. The Spurs exposed the Rockets in the playoffs by staying with the long-range bombers and daring them to shoot the mid-range. Well, CP3 is one of the best mid-range shooters in the league. The space. The pace. The opportunities. An MVP, both in real life and fantasy, is a viable outcome.

8) Russell Westbrook

What an unbelievable FU Tour Westbrook had last season! He was a freaking Tazmanian Devil, wreaking havoc to everything in his path, even his own teammates to some degree. Paul George will suck away some usage and Patrick Patterson is a great signing to stretch the floor. I have a feeling that Russ will be more apt to dish it off a little more this season. This should also benefit Steven Adams, who was pretty much relegated to hair model last year. Last year, we got Hulk Russ. This year, we get Bruce Banner Russ, which is good for the Thunder but knocks him down a bit in fantasy.

.430 .830 2.0 28.0 9.1 10.3 1.7 0.3 4.6 34

 

9) James Harden

The usage is coming down for Harden due to the CP3 acquistion. As I mentioned above, CP3 is an alpha dog and he’s handling the rock the majority of time when he’s on the court. With that said, he’s still going to get opportunities, especially when CP3 is resting, and the pace/environment is a fantasy goldmine in Houston. Harden is going to be good, but it’s tough to think that he can approach or replicate last season. I still can’t put him out of the Top 10, though.

10) Nikola Jokic

This is a player that Slim and I are very far apart on. As you can see, I’m super high on Jokic. He is so freaking good and he’s only 22 years old. I’m expecting a massive jump in production, obviously, due to the fact that a) he’s really freaking good b) the Nuggets finally realized that he’s really freaking good c) the pace that the Nuggets play at (seventh-fastest last season). Last season, Jokic was Top 20 in field goal percentage and rebounds per game. He only played 28 minutes per game last year. He has a chance, albeit a slight one, to join the 1/1/1 club. He can shoot the 3, is an excellent passer, really good shooter from the field and the line, and has the ability to rack up steals and assists. He had a couple of games with either five steals or five blocks. He had 13 games with at least two steals and 12 games with at least two blocks. Will he be Rudy Gobert? No chance, but he also won’t be Greg Monroe-esque.

    Nice. I’ve been looking forward to your ranks, looking forward to the new season.
    Some interesting ranks for sure.
    I agree with Slim, I’m not super high on Jokic because of the defense, I like my Centers to get Blocks.
    Looking forward to the rest of your ranks.
    The only player I can remember for 1/1/1 was James Johnson.

      @Shahed: Thanks Shahed! Totally get where you and Slim are coming from regarding Jokic. Don’t hate on it. Talent, opportunity, and situation has me feeling breakout, though. Good stuff on James Johnson. You got the hardest one.

      • Shahed says:
        (link)

        @Son: Now that I’ve thought about it, obviously Draymond and Boogie got 1/1/1. I should have known that, I drafted them both last season. Still trying to figure out the last one.

      @Shahed: Truth be told I have Jokic at I think 23… I’ve got Cousins at 10, Wall/Gobert at 11/12 and hopefully those are my 2 guys at the turn. Buuuuuut, Turner and Goose at 13/14 I’d be happy with too. So many more shots are going to be available for those 2 and they are already solid 3s/stl/blk guys. They could both possibly get to 2/1/2.

      Sappers blocks came down, it isn’t him… Might be Marc Gasol, he shot a ton of 3s and is a decent steals big. I’ll have Richardson averaging that though.

  2. JPaul says:
    (link)

    ow my goodnesss!!! last season I got champ bcoz I got 3 of your top 10.. XD
    KAT – 1st round pick
    Greek freak – 3rd round pick
    Jokic – 9th round pick
    definitely I will still pick this 3 this coming season if I have a chance… but right now this is impossible…

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @JPaul: Goodness indeed!! That is an amazing core. Yeah, there’s no way you are getting all three this year

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @JPaul: I don’t think Jokic made it out of the 3rd round in any of my leagues last year. But yeah, no more KAT/Giannis on the same redraft team.

  3. Mad Beach Bums says:

    My favorite nickname at least what my dad and I and a few others call Giannis is Scrabble. Just like the way it flows and easy to say. Anyways pumped for these rankings and happy to have you on board leading the razzball basketball charge with slim!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Mad Beach Bums: Scrabble is a good one. Let’s see how many nicknames we can give him by the end of the season. We at 4 now…Thanks for the kind words. I’m pumped to be a part of it as well

    • Slim

      Slim says:

      @Mad Beach Bums: Eh, only worth 23 points… I think Marc Rzepczynski is called scrabble, and he’s worth quite a bit more at 40 points.

  4. Kostas says:
    (link)

    Are your rankings for h2h or roto ??Not that it matters that much for the top 10 but could be relevant for the next rankings(deandre,Drummond,etc)…Also I’m with you about Jokic,plus he is so damn entertaining to watch…I’ll take a flashy assist over a dunk ten times out of ten…

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Kostas: H2H. Jokic is so fun to watch. He really can do it all. I think Denver is going to be good and his usage rate is going to be very high. Couple that with the pace that they will play at…that’s why I’m feeling breakout.

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Kostas: I’ve got DeAndre mid 30s, after all the upsidey bigs. Drummond fell off but for a punt FT build he’s still top 50 with a bit of upside.

      • Kostas says:
        (link)

        @Slim: My concern for deandre is the minutes he plays without Teodosic because beverly is not a great distributor…deandre can’t post or create offense to save his life and he will miss the easy fg from cp3’s lobs…The defensive stats will most likely stay the same but even a slight dip in fg% drops his value a lot…How many PPG you predict for him??(12.7 last year)

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @Kostas: Those are some of my concerns as well. I have him in the 40s

  5. JG says:
    (link)

    Initially, I didn’t agree on the Jokic ranking but with some of the higher ranked players to end the season switched teams or got another star, can’t argue too much although I think Wall, Boogie, LBJ, Dame are all worthy of that spot compared to Jokic.

    The others:
    Butler- Goes to MIN with KAT
    IT-Hayward despite going into contract year
    PG- goes to OKC with Russ

    I think they all take a backseat to Jok

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @JG: Yeah, I wouldn’t hate on anyone putting some of the names you mentioned at 10. I’m just super bullish on Jokic. That’s the beautiful thing of doing your own rankings!!!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @JG: Butler might be a point forward on that team, he’s a solid bet for top 15ish value. LBJ stat lines are too lacking for top 10 these days, Lillard is fine but the lack of steals kind of kills his value. Wall and Boogie are all good inside the top 12. IT is basically Lillard light so that’s a pass. With what happened to Oladipo last year next to Russ I’m going to err on the side of caution. Still a 2nd rounder for George but it comes with plenty of risk.

      As for Jokic… I expect plumlee to get 16-18 min and I don’t expect them to play next to each other with all the PFs in town. A healthy Gary Harris should be the alpha dog in terms of scoring, esp from the perimeter. Sapper will play inside the paint and take away opportunities from Jokic, and Jokic was atrocious playing next to a big who likes to play in the paint. I feel really good about the stat line I gave Jokic. Oh and I count 38 games in which Jokic had 1 or fewer combined stl/blk.

      • Son

        Son says:
        (link)

        @Slim: I do like Harris a lot as well, but I think he’s going to get his on spot-ups and transition. The O will primarily run through Jokic. As for Sapper, I think he will be a great complement to Jokic because he can hit the mid-range J and is a very good passer. Your stat line is fair. It’s just that I’m very bullish. As for 1 or fewer combined stl/blk, 22 of those games were with under 25 minutes played, with 9 of those under 20. He did have 12 games with over 30 minutes played with 1 or fewer. With that said, I do think the potential is there in those categories.

      • JG says:
        (link)

        @Slim: agree with the statline on Jokic. I looked up LBJ’s statline for the regular season last year and outside of the FT% (yeah kinda biggie due to the volume), I don’t think it’s that far off to make an argument that Wall/Boogie/LBJ/Jokic/Dame can be interchangeable at 10-14. For the record, I’m no LBJ fan and would rather grab Wall/Boogie/Jokic over him.

        On the subjective side of it, also kinda factoring in this while Kyrie thing. I think LBJ goes out and show playoff version during the regular season…but then gets injured before the playoffs. 😉

          @JG: Ha! I hope he doesn’t. I need him fresh for when he comes to the Lakers.

  6. Crusty says:
    (link)

    Woot Woot. Nice top 10, Kawhi is my dude- and he’s only getting better each year! However with pick number 1 I might also choose ABC. It’s all about the middle- late rounds though. Otto Porter!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Crusty: Thanks Crusty! I love Kawhi. The silent assassin. Man, I’ve been all over the place with Otto. Spoiler: Slim hates him 😉

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Crusty: Yeah Porter is definitely not top 50, and there is no way I take him ahead of Gary Harris, Middleton, Dipo, Hayward, Aaron Gordon, Booker, DeRozan, Bradley, any starting PG… I’m not sure I take him ahead of Wiggins, Crabbe, JRich, KCP, hell I’d probably rather just snag Hardaway late than spend a top 75 pick on Porter.

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        @Slim: But Otto finished as a top 25 player last year (granted a lot of his value comes from turnovers), surely you can’t think hes not a top 50 guy at the worst. He contributes in every category to a certain degree, and a guy like him in an assist punt would vault up to second round value. Not to mention that when he slowed down late in the season, that was because of the Bogdanovic trade (a guy who is no longer there). To me, Otto is a safe, easy selection inside the top 50.

      • Lasandro says:
        (link)

        @Slim: I gotta agree with @Steve here, PARTICULARLY if you’re playing roto. This man never misses games, hits 2-3 3s efficiently, is an asset in stls and brds (as well as blks from a wing), and is still a kid. Your list of people you’d pick ahead of him is mostly one I can agree with, with the exception of AGord (I don’t see much changing for him this year), Wiggs, Crabbe… I’d have Otto on par with JRich, THJ and KCP. As awesome as JRich is when he’s firing on all cylinders (in the vain of GHarris), he kinda disappointed me last year with his consistency, and I’d rather go with the dude who churned out top 25 value in WAS last year.

    Fenris-77 says:
    (link)

    Why the hate? I don’t know about you, but my concern with Porter is that his shooting is unsustainable. To much of last season’s value is buoyed but that big .434 from deep. He doesn’t strike me as a career .430 shooter from three. I might still take him on front of some of the guys you mention, but I’m not drafting him high.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Fenris-77: Yeah, I agree the 3-point percentage will come down, but he could still shoot close to 40%. With Wall and Beal the main focus of defenses, Otto will still get plenty of open looks. He also takes care of the ball so the TO rate will be very low. The thing that intrigues me most about Porter, though, is that he is not strictly a spot-up shooter. He can facilitate on PnR and has the ability to take it to the rack. The defense is solid too. At 6′ 8,” there’s always potential for steals, blocks, and rebounds. Let’s also not forget that he’s still only 23 years old and has improved every single year.

      • Fenris-77

        Fenris-77 says:
        (link)

        @Son: Yeah, age is certainly a mitigating factor in his favor, for sure. I think you have to be predicting some gains elsewhere than his %s to offset that fairly inevitable regression there if you want to draft him where, just as an example, ESPN has him ranked, which is at 40. I think he holds steady on the boards, and probably points, and there I’m giving him the benefit of maintaining career numbers on the boards. Stl and Blk look steady too. So, really, I think the place you need to feel bullish if you’re ranking him in the 40-60 range is minutes played.

        If you’re projecting him for an extra couple of minutes per, and factoring in some normal age-related development gains, then maybe it makes sense. He could also see a small bump in usage, which was a pretty paltry 15.1% last year. Personally, I think he’s still closer to 60 rather than 40 in my rankings (40’s mad high anyway).

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @Fenris-77: I hear you. That’s why I’m having difficulty with Otto. I initially had him in the Top 50. Now I think he’s in the 70s. Slim slapped me around and knocked some sense into me. With that said, I keep wanting to push him higher.

  8. Jake says:

    Rotoworld has Marquese Chriss in their top 50 for next season. That’s a little rich for my blood. I’d imagine Slim would laugh pretty hard at that projection.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Jake: I’d imagine so as well. Even I have him outside and I love his upside and situation. With that said, the more I dig into Chriss, the more red flags pop up. Like from the mental side.

      • Jake says:
        (link)

        @Son: I guess I need to watch some more tape of him, but I guess we are assuming he is their starting center next season? He was playing 21 mins a game last season and wasnt rosterable in 12ers. So there is some upside with a 1/1/1 with 14 points and 7 rebounds. That is the pie in the sky stat line i think you’re hoping for. But to me, you dont use a top 50 pick on someone who might return that exact value. Why pay a premium on a prospect who hasn’t shown that value when you can use that top 50 pick on someone who has returned top 50 value before? I target the high risk high upside guys in rounds 8-12 but I know thats just my personal preference.

        • Son

          Son says:

          @Jake: I think he plays some center but so will Big Sauce. I’m with you Jake. I have him outside my 50 right now.

            @Son: The opportunity is there but he was the most disappointing player in all of summer league for me. Chriss looked incredibly out of shape and didn’t look like the freak athlete he’s supposed to be.

          • JG says:
            (link)

            @Son: He’s got foul issues too. Bender should be back, TJ Warren assuming he starts the season healthy and Josh Jackson assuming he doesn’t get traded get a couple of minutes at the 4. I don’t see how he plays more minutes than last season. Had him ranked right around 100 for the final month and maybe up to low to mid 90s during the final month. And that’s with the team shuting down Bledsoe too. Hopefully someone would grab him at 70 or lower in my league. I think that is his ceiling this year.

        @Slim: I’d want my first couple of picks to be safe as houses before I roll the dice at 50 on a guy like Chriss. Mostly I think I’d go in another direction there, honestly. At 75? Maybe I roll the dice there.

      • Jake says:
        (link)

        @Slim: My vote is Chriss is the biggest fantasy bust of this year. I can’t even make an argument for top 100. Give it two more years and I can see a top 75 pick.

      Chriss gained a lot of weight (fat and muscle combined) and lost speed and athleticism in the process. As a suns fan I watched his SL games, Bender outplayed him even

    For my 8th pick we stick to the plan: Towns and then Turner. C/C combo. Hah

      @Dante Green: That would be nice, but I don’t think Towns will be there at 8

        @Son:

        I hope he’s still there! I’ve been playing with about the same people for 4 years now and judging by how they drafted in the past the likelihood of someone else taking LeBron in the top 7 is greater than me landing Towns at 8. Hah But whatever happens having the 8th pick is as good as having the 5th or even the 4th! We will still get great value! But I’m really more excited about my 2nd rdr (#21), perfect range to snag Turner! Him, CJ McCollum and Kyrie are going to be my targets in the 2nd rd!! (14-team league)

          @Dante Green: It sounds like you are at one with your league, so I hope that KAT is there for you at 8. I’m with you on Myles. I’m very high on him as well

            @Son:

            Hah! Yea, let’s do this! Jump on in the Myles Turner bandwagon! Hah. I’ll be waiting for the continuation of your rankings buddy!

              @Dante Green: I’m on board! I’m working on the top 25 right now and am on Myles. Guess I better make it a good one! Thanks Dante!

    RAZZUP?!!!

    Fantasy season has officially begun!
    Its definitely KD, Greek for the top 2, then cant go wrong 3-8 with AD, KAT, curry, kawhi, harden, westy.
    cp3 ranking here is a tad aggressive with the age, injuries and the fact hes going to new team and playing with harden. i think cp3 is near the turn 10-14 range with lbj, dame, cousins and gobert.
    kd, greek, ad, curry, kat, harden, westy, kawhi as my top 8 in that order. with wall, cousins, cp3, lbj, gobert, dame in the 9-14 range in that order as well.
    jokic top 10 i wouldnt mind, but picking there means ur passing up on players 9-14 range that i just specified. for me, hes in the 15-20 range with draymond, kyrie, george, butler, lowry.

      @MAC: RAZZUP! The season is oh so close, yet oh so far. Too much rationality for me MAC! You make good points and I don’t hate on it. I realize I’m higher on CP3 and Jokic than most, but I’m often not a rational person. If I was, I wouldn’t have played in a poker tournament last night and come home at 4:30 am when the kids get up around 8 am. Man, I’m already feelling it. Seriously, though, I just like their talent and situation too much.

    Not sure if this is the place to ask league specific questions…but my question involves guys in your top 25 so what the hail? 12 team ESPN H2H can keep 3 every year (keeper cost is previous years ADP) which 3 would you keep? I will also most definitely be getting draft picks for the 2 guys I don’t keep..
    KD – 1st round
    Kawhi – 1st round
    Porzingod – 3rd round
    Jokic – 4th round
    Turner – 6th round

      Jokic, Myles, and PGod

    I’m just gagging to see where my now second fav player James Johnson gets ranked. This man was incredible last year. Completely changed his body and Spo essentially played him as a point forward in crunch time. Contributes in every bloody category and is durable. If you’re good in scoring, there’s no reason to pass on this guy in the mid rounds IMO. I’m all in on this dude.

      @Lasandro: Yeah, I have him low right now but probably have to move him up, especially if he does start at PF and gets more minutes. Didn’t fully realize how good he was after the break until I pulled up his numbers.
