Fantasy Basketball Rankings 2022-23 - Top 150 NBA Fantasy Ranks

Fantasy Basketball Rankings 2022-23 - Top 150 NBA Fantasy Ranks

This article is part of our Player Rankings series.

With the start of the NBA season less than a month away, it's time to officially turn the page toward toward the 2022-23 season – and the fantasy basketball preparation that comes with it.

Below are RotoWire's initial set of fantasy basketball projections for this season. While these rankings are engineered specifically for eight-category, roto leagues, they can serve as a general guide for most fantasy basketball formats.

In a shock to no one, Nikola Jokic leads the way as our No. 1 overall player. The two-time reigning MVP has been the top fantasy producer in each of the last two seasons, and he'll be the heavy favorite to go No. 1 in most drafts – regardless of format – again this fall. Jokic is followed by Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, Jayson Tatum and Joel Embiid.
