KEY 2017-18 Fantasy Basketball - Seasonal Rankings

Use these rankings to decide who to draft and where to draft them. FA rankings are based on a players short term and long term value with upside and injury risk factored in. Use these with confidence during your draft and throughout the season.

AUCTION VALUES: These values are for leagues with a $200 auction budget. If you want a player, pay up for him. Numbers should be used as a guideline. Feel out the auction and look to nominate players you don’t want when major spending sprees are happening. Always pay up for the players you want. Before spending that extra dollar, look at depth charts to get starters.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Headshot

Antetokounmpo compiled 24 points (9-18 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-9 FT), six rebounds, six assists, and one block in 39 minutes during Thursday's 105-99 loss to Toronto.

Antetokounmpo came away with 24 points Thursday, rounding out what was really just a mediocre night for the superstar. The numbers were decent enough but he was unable to carry the team to victory and was once again outplayed by Kawhi Leonard who finished with a game-high 35 points for the Raptors. It has not been the best week for Antetokounmpo and the Bucks are now just one game away from being eliminated. He will need to shoulder a lot during Game 6 on Saturday if the Bucks are to overcome what will be a vicious Raptors home crowd and force a deciding Game 7.
7:44 am (EST)
Eric Bledsoe Headshot

Bledsoe totaled 20 points (6-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds, and two assists in 34 minutes during Thursday's 105-99 loss to Toronto.

Bledsoe rebounded from his disappointing effort in Game 4, finishing with 20 points in 34 minutes Thursday. Despite five players ending with double-digits, the Bucks were unable to produce the victory for their home fans and must now head North for what is a must-win game Saturday. Bledsoe has certainly not been at his best over the past few games but the coaching staff will be hoping for a vintage type performance once again as they attempt to force a series decider in Milwaukee on Monday.
7:36 am (EST)
Malcolm Brogdon Headshot

Brogdon tallied 18 points (8-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt), 11 rebounds, six assists, and one steal in 34 minutes during Thursday's 105-99 loss to Toronto.

Brogdon moved into the starting lineup Thursday, replacing Nikola Mirotic who has been struggling of late. Brogdon was arguably the best player for the Bucks, ending with 18 points and 11 rebounds in 34 minutes. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough as the Bucks lost their third straight game, now only one loss away from elimination. Game 6 will be in Toronto on Saturday and Brogdon will almost certainly remain in the starting lineup for that one.
7:31 am (EST)
Nikola Mirotic Headshot

Mirotic missed all four of his field-goal attempts, adding just two rebounds in nine minutes during Thursday's 105-99 loss to the Raptors.

Mirotic moved back to the bench Thursday, playing just nine minutes in the Game 5 loss. He has struggled mightily throughout this series and the trend continued here with arguably his worst performance of the season. Given his lack of production, there is a chance he falls out of the rotation completely. The Bucks need to turn things around after losing three straight games or risk what can only be described as a disappointing end to what has been a fantastic season.
7:27 am (EST)
Khris Middleton Headshot

Middleton finished with six points (2-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, and 10 assists in 36 minutes during Thursday's 105-99 loss to the Raptors.

Middleton couldn't get anything going on the offensive end Thursday, ending the game with just six points on 2-of-9 shooting. He did, however, manage to accumulate a double-double with 10 boards and 10 assists. This was a devastating loss for the Bucks who will now need to win on the road in Game 6 to force a deciding matchup. Both teams have a lot to play for and after getting out to what appeared to be a somewhat comfortable 2-0 lead, the Bucks will need to regroup if they hope to reach the NBA Finals.
7:20 am (EST)
Fred VanVleet Headshot

VanVleet amassed 21 points (7-13 FG, 7-9 3Py), one rebound, one assist, and one steal in 37 minutes during Thursday's 105-99 victory over Milwaukee.

VanVleet caught fire Thursday, dropping a career-best seven triples in the Game 5 victory over the Bucks. In fact, his entire points total was a culmination of his three-point prowess, factoring in heavily when looking at the end result. The Raptors will be hoping for a similar performance Saturday when they host the Bucks in what is now a potential series-ending game.
7:11 am (EST)
Pascal Siakam Headshot

Siakam totaled 14 points (5-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and one steal in 36 minutes during Thursday's 105-99 victory over the Bucks.

Siakam struggled from the field during Thursday's impressive road victory but was able to contribute across the board in a well-rounded performance. Siakam has been relatively inconsistent across most of the playoffs but tends to find ways to have value even when he is below par on the offensive end. The Raptors will now head for Game 6 where a victory would send them to their first ever NBA Finals.
7:06 am (EST)
Kawhi Leonard Headshot

Leonard finished with 35 points (11-25 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 8-9 FT), nine assists, seven rebounds, and two steals in 40 minutes during Thursday's 105-99 victory over the Bucks.

Leonard was clearly the best player on the floor Thursday, dropping a game-high 35 points in a pivotal Game 5 victory on the road. After appearing somewhat lethargic in his previous outing, Leonard was back to his best here with a number of big plays down the stretch. As well as his scoring output, Leonard also managed to hand out a career-high nine assists, outlining his overall value to this Raptors outfit. Game 6 will be in Toronto on Saturday and is almost certainly the most important game in franchise history. Leonard has endeared himself to the fans and a victory would ensure his legacy despite only one season north of the border.
7:00 am (EST)
Nikola Mirotic Headshot

Mirotic will come off the bench in Thursday's Game 5 against the Raptors.

After getting blown out in Game 4 the Bucks are taking Mirotic out of the starting lineup in favor of Malcolm Brogdon. Mirotic will figure to continue seeing minutes off the bench as the Bucks look to reclaim a lead in the series.
Yesterday 8:30 pm (EST)
Malcolm Brogdon Headshot

Brogdon will start at shooting guard in Thursday's Game 5 against Toronto, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Brogdon hasn't started since injuring his foot in March, but had been the teams starting shooting guard for the entire season up to that point. He'll replace Nikola Mirotic, who has started the first-four games of the series, as the Bucks look to reclaim the series lead.
