June Player Rankings

By Arlo Vander

The NBA draft is over, and we’re already looking ahead to the 2005-06 fantasy season. Will Rashard Lewis be more valuable than Chris Bosh? Where does Yao Ming rank among the top centers? How much will MVP Steve Nash be worth? To answer these questions and more, we asked eight fantasy veterans for their input.

To compile these composite rankings, each player was again assigned a rank by all eight 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 60). Each ranker’s individual list can be seen in the eight 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!
