Fantasy Basketball Player Rankings: Top 150 for the 2012-13 NBA Season

by on Aug.17, 2012, under Rankings

The Olympics are over, which means we won’t be seeing stuff like this again anytime soon (maybe ever):

 

Yep, that’s NBA champion LeBron James with a wicked bounce pass to Kevin Durant. Not only is that a sick play — it’s also a smooth transition into the point of this post, because that GIF shows the top two players in the land of fantasy basketball.

The NBA offseason is in a lull, but fantasy basketball owners should never be. But if you’ve allowed yourself to kick back and hop out of the stream of NBA news and moves for a bit, who can blame you? So for those who have to reacquaint themselves with the league, and for those who are already up to speed, I present to you an early iteration of the top 150 fantasy basketball players for the upcoming 2012-13 NBA season. (The rankings assume nine categories and a head-to-head format.)

Here’s a quick peek at the top 25 players: (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 4.5.12

Beast of the Night: LeBron James owned the Thunder with his 34 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists, four steals, one block and three three-pointers last night. He shot 50 percent (10-20) from the field and 85 percent (11-13) from the free-throw line, and had two turnovers. This followed his 41/6/4 line against the Sixers the previous night. Believe it or not, last night’s monster line helped James reclaim the No. 1 spot over Kevin Durant again.

Lines for Discussion:
Darren Collison: 7-8 FG (88%), 3-3 FT (100%), 17 Pts, 3 Reb, 11 Ast, 1 TO; this has been an underwhelming season for Collison, to say the least

Jordan Crawford: 11-22 FG (50%), 1-1 FT (100%), 5 threes, 28 Pts, 2 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 TO; he will be one of the most appealing players to consider in next year’s drafts

Andrea Bargnani: 8-15 FG (53%), 5-5 FT (100%), 3 threes, 24 Pts, 5 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 TO; in his last five games, Bargnani has averaged 25.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal, 0.4 blocks and 2.0 threes, while shooting 51 percent from the field and 94 percent from the free-throw line (continue reading…)

Paul Pierce, Kemba Walker

Beast of the Night: Paul Pierce blasted the Bobcats with 36 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, three steals, three blocks and a three-pointer last night. He shot 50 percent (10-20) from the field and 83 percent (15-18) from the free-throw line, and had four turnovers. Since March 2, Pierce has averaged 22.5 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.7 threes, while shooting 47 percent from the field and 87 percent from the charity stripe. Those are top 15 averages.

Lines for Discussion:
Jordan Crawford: 9-16 FG (56%), 1-1 FT (100%), 1 three, 20 Pts, 2 Reb, 5 Ast, 3 Stl, 1 TO; assuming that Wizards roster stays mostly the same next season (when he’ll be playing for a new contract), Crawford could be a solid pick around the fifth round of most drafts

Gerald Henderson: 9-14 FG (64%), 3-5 FT (60%), 21 Pts, 3 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl; his value remains limited by his lack of threes

Ryan Anderson: 9-15 FG (60%), 2-2 FT (100%), 8 threes, 28 Pts, 6 Reb, 1 TO; Anderson remains a top 10 fantasy stud for the season, which is already three-quarters over (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Kevin Durant posted 32 points, nine rebounds, five assists, two steals, a block and a three-pointer last night. He shot 56 percent (10-18) from the field and 100 percent (11-11) from the free-throw line, and turned the ball over four times. This was a nice bounce-back game after notching a mediocre 18/6/2 (along with six turnovers) the night before.

Lines for Discussion:
Kyrie Irving: 10-19 FG (53%) 6-7 FT (86%), 3 threes, 29 Pts, 9 Reb, 9 Ast, 3 Stl, 7 TO; he’s averaging top 30 numbers so far this season

Jordan Crawford: 7-13 FG (54%), 8-10 FT (80%), 1 three, 23 Pts, 4 Reb, 1 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 TO; he’ll be a solid source of points, threes and steals going forward, but his field-goal percentage will remain poor

Jarrett Jack: 6-9 FG (67%), 4-4 FT (100%), 1 three, 17 Pts, 10 Reb, 11 Ast; this was a pretty flawless line from Jack, who’s finally rounded back into form (continue reading…)

John Wall

Beast of the Night: John Wall finished with 26 points, four rebounds, 12 assists, three steals and a block last night. He shot 69 percent (11-16) from the floor and 100 percent (4-4) from the free-throw line, and had five turnovers. Maybe that new Wizards roster will do Wall some good.

Lines for Discussion:
Jordan Crawford: 6-16 FG (38%), 4-6 FT (67%), 1 three, 17 Pts, 1 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 TO; don’t be fooled by the mediocre line — the departure of Nick Young is great news for Crawford’s fantasy value going forward

Chris Kaman: 9-15 FG (60%), 2-4 FT (50%), 20 Pts, 7 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; Kaman is still with the Hornets, and Emeka Okafor’s return is still nowhere in sight, which means Kaman’s fantasy value should remain intact

Paul Millsap: 7-17 FG (41%), 2-3 FT (67%), 16 Pts, 11 Reb, 4 Ast, 8 Stl, 2 Blk, 2 TO; he’s currently on a three-game streak of double-doubles, his longest of the season (continue reading…)
