Downtown’s Fantasy Basketball Top 100 Redraft Rankings 2014/15

For fantasy hoops junkies October is more than just the NBA preseason – it’s Fantasy Draft Season!

We spend our time pouring over training camp updates, trying to make sense of preseason box scores and religiously figuring out our draft strategies. We ask ourselves how we can get a leg up on our opponents with some sleeper gems, or by knowing who to avoid when draft day comes around.

But no-one can do it alone. Like the Beatles sang back in 1965, we all need some “Help!” or at least a sense-check of our thought process. Enter Downtown’s Top 100 redraft rankings for 2014/15.

These rankings are based on standard 9-category, 12 team, head-to-head formats and should be adjusted based on your own league’s settings or format.

There are several players who would be ranked quite differently in rotisserie formats where you cannot really punt any categories — players such as Andre Drummond, Dwight Howard, Rajon Rondo — so please be mindful of that when using these.

But without further delay, let’s get to the fun stuff.

The Rankings

#4 LeBron James

#16 Kyle Lowry

#28 Paul Millsap and #21 Al Horford

#32 Derrick Rose

#49 Klay Thompson

#56 Gordon Hayward

#70 Nerlens Noel

#78 Andrew Wiggins

#88 Joe Johnson

#94 Jose Calderon

Just missed: Darren Collison, Eric Gordon, Enes Kanter, Alec Burks, Danilo Gallinari.

As I tell you regularly, a lot can, and will change between now and the start of the regular season, so keep monitoring preseason rotations and stats on a per-36 minute or pro-rated basis to help you project what your target players may deliver when the action tips off on October 28.

Until then, may your drafts be fruitful and your sleepers productive.

When you’re introduced to the NBA as a 6 year old in 1984, staying up late to watch Bird, Magic and Dr. J, it’s pretty hard not to fall in love with the game. I became consumed with the Association, and as my own game was developing, I tried to emulate as much as I could at an early age and learn how to play “the right way”. I have memories as a teenager of being glued to Saturday Basketball on TV and spending every spare cent I had on basketball cards and replica jerseys and so began my obsession with NBA knowledge and stats. I played my first season of Fantasy Hoops in 2002, as my serious playing days were slowing down. I now play in 5 or 6 leagues every year. To say I’m obsessed with Fantasy Hoops would be an understatement. To say I love nothing more than sharing my opinion on a player’s value would be entirely accurate, and I guess, the reason why I’m here. Follow me on twitter: @tomhersz @downtownball
