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.

Armoni Brooks Headshot

Armoni Brooks came off the bench and hit 6-of-9 3-pointers for 18 points, three rebounds, one assist and a block in 24 minutes on Monday. 

Brooks has hit 47 triples in his first 17 NBA games, passing Damian Lillard (43) for the most in NBA history in so few games. He had played at least 31 minutes in four of his previous five games but got pushed to the side by D.J. Augustin tonight. However, Brooks is the more exciting player and the Rockets have no choice but to play him big minutes as long as Kevin Porter Jr. is out with his ankle injury. Brooks should be rostered in most fantasy leagues right now.

Cameron Oliver Headshot

Cameron Oliver came off the bench and played 19 minutes, hitting 6-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal in Monday's loss to the Blazers. 

Oliver looked pretty good in his limited run and the Rockets lost Danuel House tonight. As long as Christian Wood is out, Oliver is going to have a role down the stretch for the short-handed Rockets. Give him a look.

Khyri Thomas Headshot

Khyri Thomas came off the bench and hit 6-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 18 points, four rebounds and five assists in 29 minutes of Monday's 140-129 loss to the Blazers. 

Thomas' career high in Detroit was 13 points, yet he's scored 16, 27 and 18 points in his three games with the Rockets this season. And after losing Danuel House tonight to an ankle injury, Thomas should be able to keep it going until the end of the season. He had 27 points, five rebounds, three assists, five steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers on Saturday and should be rostered everywhere for the rest of the week.

D.J. Augustin Headshot

D.J. Augustin started for the Rockets and hit 6-of-10 shots and four 3-pointers for 21 points, two rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes of Monday's loss to the Blazers. 

He's been alternating good games with bad ones and is seeing solid run with Kevin Porter Jr. out with a sprained left ankle. We'd rather see a young guy like Armoni Brooks get those minutes, but as long as DJA is starting for the Blazers he's worth a look in fantasy.

Kenyon Martin Headshot

KJ Martin hit 5-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 39 minutes of Monday's 140-129 loss to the Blazers. 

He played more minutes than any of his teammates and his 15 points came after he went for 27, 26 and 23 points in his previous three games. He's been stealing and hitting 3-pointers all month and has four steals in his last two games. He should be on every fantasy roster imaginable at this point, especially with Danuel House aggravating his ankle injury tonight and possibly ending his season.

Danuel House Headshot

Danuel House tweaked his tender right ankle on Monday night and played just 13 minutes, finishing with six points. 

The ankle injury has been lingering for a month and given that the Rockets have nothing to play for, his season might be over. And that just means more goodies for guys like Jae'Sean Tate, KJ Martin, D.J. Augustin, Khyri Thomas, Cameron Oliver and Armoni Brooks going forward.

Kelly Olynyk Headshot

Kelly Olynyk scored 17 points in the first half and finished with 21 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and a 3-pointer, and hit 10-of-10 free throws in Monday's tough 140-129 loss to the Blazers. 

Olynyk has had an incredible season for the Rockets and is one of the more underrated fantasy players around right now. He was in serious foul trouble for the second half and was quiet until the end, but he still put up a fun stat line in 29 minutes. Olynyk has been worth a sixth-round fantasy pick this season, despite being picked up off waivers in many leagues.

Stephen Curry Headshot

Stephen Curry hit 11-of-25 shots, three 3-pointers and 11-of-12 free throws for 36 points, four rebounds, six assists and two steals in Monday's 119-116 win over the Jazz. 

Curry has now scored at least 30 points in seven straight games and in 20 of his last 22 outings. He hit a huge 3-pointer with 13 seconds left that turned out to be the game-winner late and the Warriors are guaranteed at least a No. 10 seed in the West. They're going to try to get to No. 8 or 9, so hopefully, Curry and company keep playing every night. Draymond Green came through with a full stat line, Jordan Poole scored 20 with four triples and Kent Bazemore added 19 points in the win.

Kevon Looney Headshot

Kevon Looney hit 2-of-3 shots for five points, 13 rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes of Monday's 119-116 win over the Jazz. 

He's now secured double-digit rebounds in three straight games for the first time in his career and has helped the Warriors secure a postseason berth. Whether they're the No. 8, 9 or 10 seed remains to be seen, but they're at least guaranteed to play in the postseason. Looney doesn't do much besides rebound, making him a shaky fantasy play.

Jordan Clarkson Headshot

Jordan Clarkson hit 16-of-33 shots and 5-of-16 3-pointers for a season-high 41 points, seven rebounds and a steal in Monday's 119-116 loss to the Warriors.

Clarkson is the front-runner for Sixth Man of the Year and just missed his career high by a point tonight. He had two big and-1 three-point plays late and then hit a huge 3-pointer, giving the Jazz a brief lead after they trailed by as many as 18 points tonight. Clarkson has scored in double figures in every game since March 29 and has been flourishing with Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell both out for the Jazz. He'll look to keep it going against the Blazers on Wednesday night.
