For those who play in a dynasty or keeper fantasy basketball league, there’s never really an off-season and with the NBA Draft, Summer League and the bulk of Free Agency behind us, we know just about all we’ll know until training camps begin in September.
And so it’s probably time for you to decide which players to keep or to figure out the true value of your roster as you consider your trade options.
Whatever your format, this list should help you decide how to manage your roster heading into next season.
As always, a few house-keeping rules before we delve into the rankings;
1) Value is based on standard 9-category formats (pts, rebs, asts, 3ptm, stls, blks, FG%, FT%, TOs).
2) Age matters. In a keeper format would you rather 4 or 5 more years of CP3 or 10 more years of John Wall? Youth wins out nearly every time.
3) Position scarcity was hardly a factor. You’re keeping Damian Lillard over Victor Oladipo in every format even if there are six PGs ranked higher.
And finally a caveat…
4) These rankings are current as of late July 2015. A lot more will change before the season starts and you will need to adjust accordingly. I’ve tried to address any uncertainty in my comments.
OK, let’s get to the good stuff. Here are my 2015 Dynasty Rankings:
Luol Deng, Lou Williams, DeMarre Carroll, Robin Lopez, Trevor Ariza, Kobe Bryant, Justise Winslow, Mario Hezonja, Joe Johnson, Alec Burks.
