Make Your Own Fantasy Basketball Fortune By Following These Draft Pointers

By Thomas Monelle

Fantasy basketball has been growing in popularity over the past few years. There’s less luck involved than in fantasy football and its not nearly as long a season as fantasy baseball. For these reasons, fantasy basketball has become my favorite fantasy sport to play.

That’s not to say luck isn’t involved in fantasy basketball. There are always surprise injuries to big name stars and when some players get traded, their stock shoots way up or down. You can’t account for luck though so you better be prepared to have a great draft.

After 5 years of fantasy basketball I can safely say assists and blocks are the two hardest categories to come by. Very few players put up numbers in either stat exceptionally well, and only two (Dwayne Wade and Lebron James) can do both.

A quick note. If you happen to be lucky enough to have first pick and Lebron James is available, don’t think about it twice. He is your guy. If you have second pick, I would go Kevin Durant.

When it comes to assists, the players that do it better than the rest are Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Rajon Rondo and Steve Nash. If you can get any of these players on your team assists suddenly won’t be such a concern.

When it comes to blocks, some of the better options out there include Dwight Howard, Gerald Wallace and Marcus Camby. While Camby doesn’t score much, he does everything else well and there’s a reason he’s been a top 15 fantasy player for the past 5 years.

Rebounding is also very important, but you want to be careful not to get someone who will tank your free throw percentage. Big men who rebound a lot tend to be mediocre at the line (ahem..Dwight Howard). So if you can get someone like David Lee or Pau Gasol, you will be in good shape.

Finally, turnovers are a sneaky stat that can easily add up. Be wary of drafting someone like Steven Jackson or Brandon Jennings who score a lot, but give the ball up a ton.
