NBA Draft Kit: Composite Top 50 Keeper Rankings

Michael Chua

Michael Chua is a basketball statistics expert from the Philippines. He has worked as a student manager for the University of Wisconsin Men's basketball team. He is also the basketball program consultant for his high school alma mater, Shanghai American School, in China.

Four of our RotoWire fantasy basketball experts (Andre' Snellings, Shannon McKeown, James Anderson, and Kyle McKeown) ranked their top 50 keepers for the 2013-2014 NBA season, and the composite average of these rankings are compiled below. They completed their rankings individually, without knowledge of each others' rankings.

The rankings below are based on the assumption of a 9-category head-to-head league. A player's rank is based on his average score given by the writers. In the case of ties (such as Chris Paul, Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis), players are secondarily ranked by the standard deviation of their scores (a lower SD indicating higher agreement between scorers).

Unranked players are assigned the following for each writer in calculating their average: 55 if unranked by one writer, 60 if unranked by two writers, and 65 if unranked by three writers. For example, Jrue Holiday was unranked by Andre', and so he would be assigned a 55 under Andre's rank; Chandler Parsons on the other hand would be assigned 60's under both Shannon's and James's ranks.
