Small Forward Rankings and Tiers for 2019-20 Fantasy Basketball

The small forward position is almost certainly going to be the hardest position to fill across many drafts. When looking at my player rankings, there is not one small forward in the top-10. My highest-ranked in that position is Kawhi Leonard and based on mock drafts, he could even fall outside the top-20. It doesn’t get a lot better from there with only three inside the top-25, and six inside the top-50. Depending on your league, there are a number of power-forwards who could be eligible across both positions. Despite this, it is something you might want to cater for early in your draft. Many of the latter options in my small forward rankings will struggle to provide value outside of one or two primary categories.

Tiers can be important when preparing for your draft, often providing you with a plan B, something that is often required. Fantasy Basketball managers are certainly beginning draft preparations earlier each season. The content is improving and becoming more readily available, meaning the quality of leagues is typically increasing. My small forward rankings, as part of the Fantrax fantasy basketball draft guide, should have you ready to roll come October.
