2005-06 Player Rankings

By Arlo Vander

Is Joe Johnson a better fantasy option than Andre Miller? Should Jason Richardson be drafted ahead of Kirk Hinrich? How much value will Andrew Bogut have in his rookie season? To answer these questions and more , and to help you prepare for your draft, we asked three fantasy experts to share their cheat sheets with us.

To compile these composite rankings, each player was assigned a rank by all three experts; the lower this score compared with other players, the better. By combining these lists, we can see both individual preferences and the overall consensus among the rankers.

Average rank indicates the average of the scores assigned to a player by each person (for this calculation, players not appearing in an individual list were assigned a score of 35). Each ranker’s individual list can be seen in the three columns at the right.

Please note that this is a tool for draft preparation; it will not be updated throughout the season. Enjoy, and good luck in your drafts!
