NBA Fantasy Postseason: Post-Draft Review

NBA Fantasy Postseason: Post-Draft Review

The start of the NBA postseason is just days away, kicking off on Saturday. While the final seeding won't be set until Friday, the RotoWire NBA staff convened Wednesday afternoon for the annual NBA Fantasy Postseason Draft.

The rules are simple: 

  • Eight players per team: two guards, two forwards, one forward/center, one UTIL, and two bench spots.
  • Scoring is cumulative and runs from the start of the first round through the end of the Finals
  • Six categories: Points (1.0), Rebounds (1.2), Assists (1.5), Steals (2.0), Blocks (2.0), Turnovers (-1.0)
  • Once a team is eliminated, those players can no longer accrue points. One roster addition is allowed throughout the entire playoffs.

This year, we had seven participants, each of whom entered the draft with their own unique strategy.

Here's how the draft played out:
