Top 10 Fantasy Basketball Players, NOT in the Top 10

The top 10 players in Fantasy Basketball are pretty obvious. If anyone thinks Westbrook, Durant, Harden, Antetokounmpo, Leonard, James, Curry, Towns, Wall, or Davis are NOT the top 10 guys, they are crazy! After those easy picks, the next 10 guys differs based on who you ask. Here are my Numbers 11-20, in no particular order:

Jimmy Butler – New team and same old Butler. He should put up some massive numbers on a young team surrounded by talent. Scoring should be similar to last year, but all other categories should rise.

Kyrie Irving – This is his “Kobe” moment. If the trade holds, he will be the number one option on the new best team in the East.

Hassan Whiteside – Hassan has burst onto the NBA scene, and has proven to be one of the top big men in the game. If he stays healthy, he could force his way into the top 10.

DeMarcus Cousins – Boogie always knows how to fill up a stat sheet, including the Technical Foul’s category. Plan on him missing a few games because of his attitude.

Chris Paul – Paul is another year older, but still has plenty in the tank. I think his assist numbers will dip a little, but his steal and scoring should rise with Harden as his frontcourt running mate.

Damian Lillard – Dame D.O.L.L.A. as he is known in the rap game, is proving to be one of the elite point guards in the NBA year in and year out. He should continue to excel on a rising Portland team.

Paul George – Joining Westbrook in OKC means he will get plenty of passes his way, wide open looks, and he better be able to run the floor in this fast paced offense.

Kristaps Porzingis – The man in NY continues to take his game to new heights each year. He quickly fills up the stat sheet and is the number one option on the team.

Nikola Jokic – Denver’s big man has really improved his skills these past two seasons, and with Millsap joining him in the backcourt, he should face less double teams next year.

Bradley Beal – Beal became a consistent source of scoring last season, and most importantly, stayed healthy! He is a young talent on the rise, and if he can build off last year, could be a draft day steal in the early rounds.
