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.

Evan Turner Headshot

Evan Turner will join Boston's coaching staff, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. 

A 10-year NBA veteran, Turner had two of his best seasons with the Celtics in 2014-16 and made lots of good relationships during his stay. Turner will focus on player development in Boston, Charania adds.

Gerald Green Headshot

Gerald Green has signed a one-year deal for the minimum with the Rockets.

It's a non-guaranteed deal for Green, so he will have to make the team during training camp. Green sat out the entire 2019-20 season with a broken foot but is out to prove that he still has something left in the tank at age 34.

Oshae Brissett Headshot

The Raptors have re-signed forward Oshae Brissett. 

Brissett gets a multi-year deal with a $300,000 guarantee, making him the favorite for Toronto's 15th and final roster spot. He will have to hold off Henry Ellenson, Yuta Watanabe and Alize Johnson to keep his spot on the roster.

Jalen Harris Headshot

Jalen Harris has signed a two-way contract with the Raptors. 

The 6'6" guard out of Nevada wasn't expected to be in Toronto's plans this season after the Raptors brought back Fred VanVleet. The 59th pick will look to develop his game in the G League for most of the year.

Glenn Robinson Headshot

Glenn Robinson III has agreed to a one-year, $2.0 million deal with the Kings, according to HoopsHype's Michael Scotto.

Numerous teams were interested in adding GR3 as wing depth, but he may have seen a bigger role in Sacramento now that Bogdan Bogdanovic is gone. As beat writer Jason Anderson wrote before the deal was done, "Robinson would come in with an opportunity to compete for the backup small forward spot." That's not enough to give him fantasy appeal unless you're in dire need of 3-pointers.

Nigel Williams-Goss Headshot

Jazz writer Tony Jones feels that Nigel Williams-Goss has "a pretty plausible path" to earning minutes at some point during the 2020-21 season.

Jones opines that Williams-Goss is "probably fourth" on the PG depth chart behind Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell and Joe Ingles, but he could earn some minutes if any of those veterans go down for an extended period of time. For now, fantasy GMs can safely ignore him.

Donte DiVincenzo Headshot

Donte DiVincenzo will "likely" take over the starting SG job vacated by Wes Matthews, according to beat writer Eric Nehm.

The Bucks planned to include DiVincenzo in a trade for Bogdan Bogdanovic, but with that deal scuttled they'll likely promote from within. Nehm writes that although DiVincenzo is favored to start, "If DiVincenzo can’t handle big wings defensively like his predecessor Matthews, [Torrey Craig] presents an interesting option for [coach] Mike Budenholzer." In 24 starts last year, DiVincenzo averaged 8.6 points, 1.0 threes, 5.5 boards, 2.9 assists and a value-anchoring 1.4 steals per game.

Juancho Hernangomez Headshot

Juancho Hernangomez is a "sure-fire starter" for Minnesota this season, according to Wolves writer Jon Krawczynski.

This isn't a surprise given the limitations of Minnesota's roster, but it's good to have it confirmed by a plugged-in beat writer. Rookie Jaden McDaniels should absorb the backup PF minutes, leaving Hernangomez with enough playing time to establish low-end fantasy value. In 14 starts last season, he averaged 12.9 points (45.3% FGs, 60.9% FTs), 2.1 threes, 7.3 boards, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steals in 29.4 minutes.

Isaiah Hartenstein Headshot

Isaiah Hartenstein's two-year deal with the Nuggets includes a player option in the second year.

Denver pulled Torrey Craig's qualifying offer in order to sign a "mobile big man" in the wake of Mason Plumlee's departure. They believe they've found their guy in Hartenstein. Mike Singer of the Denver Post reports that Hartenstein "is expected to battle with incoming rookie Zeke Nnaji for the backup center role." As long as Nikola Jokic is healthy, though, neither Hartenstein nor Nnaji will be worth rostering in 12-team leagues.

Gordon Hayward Headshot

The Hornets have officially acquired Gordon Hayward in a sign-and-trade with Boston.

To facilitate the deal, which pays Hayward $120 million over four years, the Celtics included future second-round picks in the 2023 and 2024 drafts. They'll get back "a conditional 2022 second-rounder, according to Shams Charania, in addition to a hefty trade exception. Hayward instantly becomes the No. 1 option for a Hornets team that desperately needs efficient scoring punch -- they ranked 27th in adjusted Offensive Rating last season. It's a clear upgrade for fantasy purposes that should drive Hayward's average draft position into the early-middle rounds.
