Fantasy BASKETBALL Season Position Ranking

Let’s talk basketball. I’ll admit that I am a relative newcomer to the sport, but I don’t feel bad bragging that I won both leagues I’ve been in. I encourage those of you who havent played to start this year. Consider it 10 more minutes a day you can waste at work.

The key to winning is simple. Update, every single day. If you rotate your guys and pay even the smallest amount of attention to injuries and roster changes and statistics, you will make the playoffs. And if you draft/trade/pick-up intelligently, you will win your league. Anyway, I find it fun, and invite you all to join at least one league. Hell, organize them among yourselves. Give me something to do when football is finally over.

I have listed below my top 25ish picks from each position. My draft strategy is a little off and requires a hell of a lot of predicting. Rather than drafting from one big board, or by position..

I find it more helpful to draft by stat category. It is important to get a few great all around players first, then go for an assist man, or a block/rebound specialist. Before your draft, think of which 2 categories you dont care about at all. You arent going to win every spot every week, but you can go 7-3 or 8-2 every week. I personally dont care at all about free throw percentage and TOs. They are my throw away categories for me. I like to focus on people who get assists and people who get rebounds. Because with those categories comes blocks, FG%, steals, points, and 3PM.

You’ll quickly round out your own strategy, but make sure you stay tuned for basketball tips from your favorite fantasy sports site. My personal MVP for fantasy basketball is hands down the center. I like to load up and guarantee that I win Shooting percentage, blocks, point and rebounds every week. Also, I’ve got a few repeats on the list. Its always fantastic to have a player who is listed at 2 or more positions. So keep an eye out for them.

Good thing about basketball, the draft is really all the research you have to do. And hell, you dont even have to do that. Just pay attention each week til the end of the season and you are guaranteed top three. Hang around at godhateslosers for all the inspiration you need.

  1. Andrew, be honest: We both know I beat you in the championship matchup of last year’s fantasy basketball league.

    • Yeah, you did. My bad. I get my constant fantasy sports winning confused sometimes. I got first in baseball. Second in basketball. Still won my other league though.
      Apologies all around. Especially to Jordan. I’ll take the crown this year buddy.
