SuperCoach HQ Pre-Draft Rankings 2016/17

This year has been an extremely difficult one when ranking the very best players and who should be drafted with those all important first round picks.

Keep in mind that these rankings are based on the ESPN Head-to-Head scoring format, and that they are only guide. If you think you should take a player early than my rankings suggest, then go for it, follow your gut!

Russell Westbrook is most rankings #1 player and my rankings are no different. Nothing I have seen over pre-season has made me change my mind that, with Kevin Durant out of the picture, Westbrook will absolutely dominate the ball, and contribute heavily to almost every single fantasy category.

You might think I am crazy to have LeBron ranked at #9 and I quite possibly could be, but keep in mind that James is entering his 30’s and is coming off a deep playoff run. Just like last year, the Cavs won’t mind a whole lot if they drop early games and I think we won’t see the best of LeBron until closer to the All-Star break. Keep this in mind when drafting him.

You will notice that there are a large number of Centres around the 80 to 100 mark and the reason for this is because unless you are lucky enough to get one or maybe even two of Anthony Towns, Cousins, Whiteside, Horford or Jordan in the first 3 rounds, it is not worth spending early picks on them as drafting guards and forwards is much more important.

So have a look through my rankings and let me know whether you think I am right … or wrong. I hope that it helps you with your drafts between now and Wednesday.

As always if you have any questions please leave them at the bottom of this article, or why not join the conversation on Twitter or in our Facebook group!
