As we continue the SCFE 2015 Fantasy Basketball rankings, today we take on the forwards.
The forward rankings are the most fluid of all positions, since you have to go down forty spots to get to a player without dual position eligibility. This lends to many names being near the top on both the forwards list along with either the guards or centers rankings as well.
I also think the Forward positions have the deepest top tier of talent, with 10 of my top-16 overall being eligible at one of the forward spots.
Once again, these rankings are geared toward leagues that use some sort of PG/SG/G/SF/PF/F/C/C/UTIL/UTIL lineup with statistical categories including points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, turnovers, 3-pointers made, FG percentage and FT percentage with value based drafting in mind.
The positions are based off of the Fantasy Pros consensus.
Fantasy Basketball Rankings: Forwards
- Eight out of the top-25 forwards have the all important SG/SF designation, making their positional value skyrocket
- James Harden tops the list again, as his shooting percentages are extremely high for a guy who puts up all-around statistics like he does.
- Only two of out of the top-60 players, Danilo Gallinari, SF, and Julius Randle, PF, are eligible at just one position.
- I could definitely see myself being too low on Derrick Favors: he might be poised for a breakout year and vault himself into the top-8.
- There are quite a few forwards coming back from injury that give them wide projection status: Kevin Durant, Paul George, Kevin Love, Chris Bosh, Dwight Howard, Chandler Parsons and Serge Ibaka. Keep an eye on these guys in the pre-season to see how they are recovering.
