2006-07 Player Rankings

By Tim Shen

With the basketball season right around the corner, three Cafe veterans have offered their cheat sheets to help you prepare for your upcoming fantasy draft. The rankings were then compiled and averaged, with each player receiving a number according to their ranking. Guards and forwards not ranked by a specific expert received a score of 65 and unranked centers received a score of 35.

In addition to using this as a draft tool, don’t be afraid to send a comment or question to the rankers. We would love to hear your feedback.
