NBA FANTASY CHEAT SHEET YOU COULD CONSIDER... AS BASIS.




So I spent my weekend prepping up for fantasy drafts.


Inasmuch as I want to just get a random cheat sheet and then copy or print it, I believe the cheat sheets are made by fantasy GMs. Why would a GM broadcast his strategy to the world? Inasmuch as the article is for the noobs and the dudes that just want to go on their laptop and draft with direction, this is also for their opponents whom they are trying to deceive.


I want to deceive people.


With that said, I also want to help.


Also, this is the data I got from the POINTS league I did a season ago.


Sure, you’re going to say “why so-and-so is ranked lower than this other so-and-so” but I factored in the fantasy league regular season as well as the injuries, rest days, buyouts, signings, and tankings leading to the fantasy league playoffs.


So for the 2021-22 NBA fantasy season, these are the names that topped last season.


You probably need to consider these players to either make a case or outright disregard especially if you think about player movements, depth chart, and contract status.

Now you can agree or disagree with the names and how they are ranked on this list.


I purposely included the names that seem odd... but could have repercussions to the team he's now in and the team he left. Ricky Rubio for instance left Minnesota for Cleveland after becoming the team's sub starter with D'Angelo Russell struggling due to injury. With his departure, does this mean D-Lo is going to be the team's undisputed top PG, or is there a new playmaker that is going to unseat him?


And what about the entry of Rubio in the Cleveland fold? Kevin Love played his best years with Rubio as his top playmaker. Does this mean, Collin Sexton or Darius Garland are on their way out?


And then, there are many other questions in need of answers.


If your team has little to no representation on the list... does that mean that one of its players is due to break out?


And then, if your favorite team has three or four players on this list, does this mean the stats are going to be restricted?


If there’s one thing cheat sheets are, it’s a way to access your fantasy league’s situation. A normal fantasy season has 20 to 21 weeks of the regular season and three to four weeks of playoff action. Before going to the draft, the fantasy GM must have already determine if he’s going to select the best player in terms of popularity or the best player in terms of fantasy situation.
