These are the top fifteen forwards to draft for your NBA fantasy league draft:
1 James, LeBron SF MIA A reliable, quality entity.
2 Durant, Kevin SF OKC His scoring might slightly dip while Wesbrook is out, but he is an elite player
3 Love, Kevin PF MIN If he stays healthy, the stat sheets are his (and yours) to conquer
4 Griffin, Blake PF LAC A dominant, ever-improving player on a dominant, ever-improving team.
5 Anthony, Carmelo SF NY He thrives in that fast-paced offense.
6 Aldridge, LaMarcus PF POR He’s a bit hurt right now, but should be fine for another 20-10 season.
7 Lee, David PF GS The power guy on a finesse team. Good big man numbers with a few dimes thrown in to boot.
8 Smith, Josh PF DET He was a little up and down last season, but should be dominant in the Pistons’ offense, filling out the entire stat sheet.
9 Gasol, Pau PF LAL Experts call last season’s down year a fluke. Looking for improvement with Dwight Howard being there to clash with his style.
10 Gay, Rudy SF TOR Seemed a bit better in Canada than he did in Memphis, and he should continue to shine bright.
11 Millsap, Paul PF ATL He is the starting PF in Atlanta. Now we see what he can do. 18 & 10 is a good starting point for expectations.
12 Davis, Anthony PF NO His stats were good considering the injuries he collected during his rookie season. Expect bigger and better from a healthy sophomore.
13 Duncan, Tim PF SA He is still good, and will put up good PF numbers, but he will be injured, he will get scheduled rest, and Spurs players just can’t be counted on to be in every game, every night due to coaching philosophies.
14 Nowitzki, Dirk PF DAL He’s older and coming off an injury season, with lesser stats, but nobody is ruling out a close-to-Dirk-type season as of now.
15 Bosh, Chris PF MIA He is the third scoring option in Miami. He has somepretty great games, but will severely disappear from the stat sheet on other nights. Still a quality second opton.
