The Home of Fantasy Sports Analysis


The NBA season is now less than two months away and mock drafts have already begun. Points leagues are a great way to introduce yourself to fantasy basketball, typically requiring less lead-in work. My points league rankings are just what you need to put you ahead of the pack, especially if your league has an early draft. These rankings are based on the NBA points scoring system only and look at players total value. Your league may have different settings which would, of course, impact individual players values.

What?! You didn’t host last year’s fantasy basketball league on Fantrax? Inconceivable!! Check out all the features of Fantrax Fantasy Basketball Commissioner and we’re pretty sure you’ll come around to our way of thinking.

    Why is Bojan ranked lower than Bogdan Bogdanovic?

  4. Anwar Yussuf says

    You ranked Paul George at 12 who is coming off of multiple surgeries and no one knows if he will be as good as last season and Kawhi Leonard at 13 who will be rested a lot because of his previous injuries. So, I’m not sure why you ranked Stephen Curry at 21? I know they are going to rest him a lot, but isn’t 21 too low?

  5. Alex says

    Why is drummond third? I have him but im having trouble defending this list to my friends. Also how is ben simmons above lillard?

    1. Adam King says

      I am updating the rankings as we speak. Drummond is probably going to slide a little, but is still a first-round player. Last season he averaged 3.5 combined steals and blocks which is valuable in this format. He was the 7th ranked player last season, 3rd after the break.
      Simmons and Lillard were very similar in their rankings last season and I can see Simmons taking a bit of a step up this season.

  6. BigFudgeMinnesota says

    Hello, what is the scoring system used to do this ranking ?
    I don’t understand what you mean by “nba scoring system”
    is it like espn default setting ?
    thanks for the good work dude !

    1. Adam King says

      Two years ago the NBA launched an official fantasy scoring system.

      Points = 1
      Rebounds = 1.2
      Assists = 1.5
      Steals = 3
      Blocks = 3
      Turnovers = -1

      Does that help?

      1. BigFudgeMinnesota says

        yes thank you !
