2014-15 Fantasy Basketball: Top 150 9-Cat Rankings
With only a couple days left until the 2014-15 NBA season kicks off, it’s always nice to gander at the latest up-to-date rankings before you head into your fantasy basketball drafts. Hence, the reason TheFantasyFix is dropping Top-150 9-cat rankings for our readers at this time as factors like depth chart changes, injuries, minute allotments, preseason play, etc. have all been accounted for. Before we get into the festivities, first let me explain how you should go about using these rankings.
These rankings reflect where I believe said players will finish at the end of the year, so make sure you’re not using this column as a “draft guide” so to speak. While some of the players very well may be selected in spots very close in proximity to where they are listed in the column, each draft is unique in and of itself so it’s important to be flexible in the midst of drafting. Secondly, these rankings don’t account for potential punting strategies, so don’t freak out when you see Dwight Howard ranked past 100. He’s a great example of a player who gains considerable value when punting FT%, but after coming in as the 156th-best 9-cat player in 2013, you won’t be as confused when you see his rank. Lastly, the rankings are geared towards ROTO formats and all ADP/position eligibility data listed is from Yahoo.
Without further ado, here are the Top-150 9-cat rankings. Drop a line in the comments box to let me know your thoughts concerning these rankings if you’d like!
