NBA Fantasy Basketball: Offensive Powerhouses to Target

A player’s offensive ability reigns supreme in fantasy basketball rankings. While not the only categories measured in fantasy basketball rankings, they are the most exciting and part of the elite primary fantasy repertoire. Your favorite player is most likely an elite offensive player, and considering basketball is measured in points at the end of the day, these players are the engines that drive your fantasy team to victory and consistently will be the focus of your fantasy NBA draft.

Who are the best offensive weapons in fantasy basketball? Which players are the hidden gems? We will cover that and more below!

What?! Your fantasy basketball league wasn’t hosted 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.

The measure of Offensive Production

 To rate our players’ elite offensive prowess, I combined the player’s projected points, threes, and assists (per game)  represented in Table 1. Secondly, I combined points and threes to measure the elite scorers in the leagues, represented by Table 2. Each table displays the top 50 and their 2023-2024 average draft position (ADP).

Damian Lillard is king, but for how long? When it comes to offense, Damian Lillard is king, for now. Luka barely trails. If Lillard is traded, expect his offensive output to remain elite but fall from the top few spots. Steph Curry would jump to number two.

The Elite are elite. Starting from the top with Damian Lillard (42.86), only five other players are within five total points. Starting from Khris Middelton, there are 26 players within five. (total 27.1).

Value is available. Towards the end of the top 50, certain players maintain a high level of offensive production and are available later in the draft: Jordan Clarkson, Klay Thompson, Kyle Kuzma, Anfernee Simons, Tyrese Maxey, and Jerami Grant.

Damian Lillard and Steph Curry are the ultimate scoring weapons. Damian Lillard is king in scoring, although he barely beats out Steph Curry. Lillard and Curry benefit from an enormous amount of three-pointers made and will continue to lead the threes category for the 2023-2024 season.

The emergence of Jordan Poole. Poole is on a new team with keys to the kingdom. Poole is playing with a pure point guard and will have a license to shoot, and shoot, he will. Expect a big jump in his scoring average from last year and many points and threes.

Professional Scorers. This table highlights powerful scoring prowess that can be found outside of the elite players. Players like Jordan Clarkson, Michael Porter Jr., Jalen Green, Kyle Kuzma, Anfernee Simons, Jerami Grant, Tyrese Maxey, Klay Thompson, and Jordan Poole have become valuable scoring additions. Their role in the NBA is to score as many points as possible.
