2018-19 Fantasy Hoops Tiers

by Tommy Beer
Updated On: October 8, 2018, 3:46 pm ET

After rolling out my Top-150 overall rankings last week, below I break down each position into tiers.

It is important to note that these rankings are based on a nine-category roto format (points, assists, rebounds, steals, blocks, 3-pointers, field goal percentage, free throw percentage and turnovers). In some cases, the rankings have been adjusted slightly to account for preseason performance, training-camp injuries, and depth chart movement. Position eligibility is based on Yahoo!’s fantasy settings. As a result, many players qualify at multiple positions.

For the most comprehensive draft content available anywhere, including 300+ player profiles, schedule grids, position (PG, SG, SF, PF, C) tiers, mock drafts, injury reports, etc., consider investing in Rotoworld’s 2018 NBA Draft Guide.
