Pre-season 2019-20 Top 150 Fantasy Basketball Rankings
The NBA draft lottery provided plenty of surprises, both good and bad, depending on which team you support. The Pelicans were the clear winners, emerging with the number one pick despite coming in with only a six percent chance. The Grizzlies also moved up, landing themselves the second overall pick ahead of the Knicks and the Lakers. However, these were only the first few dominoes to fall in what promises to be an offseason that could shape the league for at least the next three seasons. It would appear as though certain players may choose to wait and see what happens elsewhere before deciding on their own future. The list of players that could be on the move is seemingly endless, making any fantasy basketball rankings tentative at best.
Basically, every team is yet to finalize their roster with a number of those teams likely to make major changes. The first-round in most fantasy drafts will look very similar with uncertainty surrounding just a few names such as Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, and Kawhi Leonard. Despite the seemingly imminent addition of Zion Williamson, Davis has reaffirmed his willingness to be traded, although his eventual landing spot is far from determined. Durant and Leonard are still a chance to remain with their respective teams and only time will tell as to what their future holds.
That being said, it is never really too early to start looking ahead at where players would be drafted if the fantasy basketball season was mere days away. A step up on your opponents is key to being prepared, heading into your fantasy basketball draft. All rankings need to be viewed as though each player will remain in their current situation. Of course, we know this will not be the case and so the rankings (per game) will be adjusted accordingly over the coming weeks.
