Fantasy Basketball: Top 100 Players of the 2017-2018 Season


Preseason is officially under way as we are just short of 2 weeks until the official tip-off to the NBA season. Many fascinating story lines and changing landscapes in the NBA, fantasy basketball is going to be a fun ride.

In case you missed my full coverage of fantasy basketball:

Intro to Fantasy: Beginners 101

Fantasy Basketball Tips & Strategies

Fantasy Basketball Breakouts

Fantasy Basketball Busts & Sleepers

This lists consists of how I feel on a fantasy perspective. I have broken it down to tiers, to best further measure each players positional value:

Tier I: Elite of the Elite

Tier IA: Not Far Behind

Tier II: High-End Starters

Tier III: Productive Stars

Tier IV: Above-Average Starters

Tier V: Steady Veterans and Young Unknowns

Tier VI: Late-Round Fliers

Please note, I base my rankings on 9-category leagues, and I factor in injuries (Isaiah Thomas isn't on this list), opportunities, roles, upside, and also proven history. This is not to say Russell Westbrook is a better player than LeBron James, nor do I believe Nikola Jokic is a better player than Chris Paul, etc.

*League Settings: Yahoo! Head-to-Head 9-categories: Points, Rebounds, Assists, Steals, Blocks, 3-Pointers, FG%, FT%, and Turnovers.
