Final Preseason Fantasy Basketball Rankings

Brandon C. Williams Staff Writer October 16, 2017 11:15AM EST

We have seen the future of Fantasy Basketball, and he lives in Minnesota.

During my mid-summer rankings, I suggested that one could make a strong argument that Timberwolves PF/C Karl-Anthony Towns should be the first overall pick regardless of what style (points or Rotisserie) of format. Only in his third year, Towns has established himself as a 23-point, 12-rebound foundation that adds above-average field goal percentage and free throw percentage while adding value on defense by averaging more than a steal and a block per night. With the T’Wolves on the brink of a breakdown, it makes more sense to grab him if you have the first pick. KAT has MVP potential and has yet to completely tap his upside, so don’t let him slip past you.

How does the rest of the Top 150 look in a points format? Let your eyes start here and work their down beyond Towns.

  1. Karl-Anthony Towns, PF/C, Timberwolves
  2. Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF/PF (trust me, he’ll add another position), Bucks
  3. Anthony Davis, PF/C, Pelicans
