2013 Fantasy Basketball Rankings: The Top 150 - Part 2 (Nos. 76-150)

Lou Cappetta kicks off RotoBaller's 2013 fantasy basketball coverage with part 2 of RotoBaller's Top 150 fantasy basketball rankings. We will be here all season to help you win your league title!

Lou Cappetta - RotoBaller

Last week, we began our rankings of the 150 best fantasy basketball players. Part One offered the top 75. Here in Part Two, we will look at the latter 75 of the top 150. There are plenty of sleepers here that can be had late in drafts, and as most experts will tell you, this is where leagues are won and lost.  These rankings will help you navigate the later rounds of your upcoming fantasy basketball draft.


2013 Fantasy Basketball Rankings - The Top 150 Part Two

76. Bradley Beal SG, WAS - Lots of talent and lots of injuries, but will be given every chance to form a "big 2" with John Wall.

77. Jeremy Lin PG, HOU - Glowing reports and monster preseason could mean big season. More 3's, plenty of assists and steals. Won't reach, but would consider him mid-late round bargain.

78. Luol Deng SF, CHI - Solid player who offers help in multiple categories. Scoring takes a dip with Rose back in fold, but could find plenty of open looks from 3 when Rose drives to hoop.

79. Eric Gordan SG, NO - I hate drafting injury prone guys, but Gordon is a top 20 talent, and I think he ends up playing this year. Risk/reward type of guy here, but worth a shot in later rounds.

80. Steve Nash PG, LAL - He offers little in scoring and defensive stats, but gives great percentages and still can get dimse like crazy. Age and health will be constant concerns all year.

81.  Raymond Felton PG/SG, NYK - He can score and dish, and is capable of big games. Also capable of single handly killing you 3PT and FG percentages. Still, hard to find a better starting PG this late.

82. Kevin Martin SG, MIN - Not a fan at all. Offers empty scoring, some threes, and solid percenteges. Doesn't get to the line anymore, and will get you zero assists or defensive stats.

83. Enes Kanter C, UTA - Big upside, and will be given opportunity. Average block potential, but good mid-late round big man.

84. Gordon Heyward SG/SF, UTA - Not as high on him as most. Played well down the stretch last year, and will be given the chance to be the man on young Utah squad.

85. Greivis Vasquez PG/SG, SAC - Led NBA in total assists last year. Also committed a ton of turnovers. Will have to battle injuries, terrible team, and IT2 cutting into his playing time.

86. J.R. Smith SG/SF, NYK - When he's on, he's a top 20 player. When he's not, he'll destroy your percentages quicker than you can blink. Expect 3's, scoring, steals. Also expect some 1-17 nights. Knee injury and drug suspension limit his value as well.

87. JaVale McGee C, DEN - Huge upside with 30+ minutes a night. Will lead NBA blocks (finished sixth in only 18 min/game last year). More PT also means he'll probably murder your FT percentage. If he can't take next step this year, he never will.

88. Carlos Boozer PF/C, CHI - Seems like nobody likes him in fantasy, but guy is a lock for 15 points, 8 boards a night, with a solid FT percentage for a big man. Scoring should dip this year, and will offer no help in defensive stats.

89. Danny Green SG/SF, SAS - Really underrated. Can offer Kawhi Leonard type production much later in draft. Could end up being a Kyle Korver who plays D.

90. Andre Drummond PF/C, DET - He will be an absolute monster in rebounds and blocks, and will offer plus totals in points and steals. He also shot 37% from the foul line last year. That's not a typo.

91. Wilson Chandler SG/SF/PF, DEN - I love Wilson Chandler. and if not for constant injuries would rank him higher. He can score, rebound, play D, and hit three's. No Iggy or Gallo means he'll be number two guy. Big breakout season could be in works.

92. Anderson Varejao PF/C, CLE - Higher than I've seen anywhere else, but he's another guy I love. Don't think Bynum cuts into his production that much. Even if he does, 10/10 with a steal and block per game very likely. Serious injury risk limits value, but quality bigs are hard to come by this late.

93. Kenneth Faried PF/C, DEN - Offers everything Varejao does, with less injuries, but I think JaVale McGee project hurts his value.

94. Michael Kidd-GilchristSF, CHA - Still very young, and don't think this is year he puts it all together. Still, has a ton of upside and little competition for job. Offers nice rebound numbers and a steal/block a game from SF spot.

95. Jimmy Butler SG/SF, CHI - Not as high on him as most. Sure he'll start at SG for Bulls, but think there will be plenty of nights he ends up fifth option on offense.

96. Kevin Garnett PF/C, BKN - Minutes will be down, and won't play back/back. Can still get 14 & 7 with eyes closed. Won't have monster games, but won't put up any stinkers either. Solid late round production.

97. Andrew Bogut C, GSW - Not a scoring threat anymore, but if he's healthy, and it sounds like he finally is, will battle for league lead in block and boards. Don't forget his terrible free throw percentage, and that his next injury could happen at any time.

99. Victor Olidipo SG, ORL - Will play plenty for rebuilding Orlando squad. Will get better as season goes on. Expect him to see time at PG as well. Tons of upside, but plenty of unknowns.

100. Amir Johnson PF, TOR - Won't score, but will easily get 10+ boards a game with plenty of blocks, steals, and solid FT % for big man. If he can stay out of foul trouble and on the floor, could have a breakout season.

101. Andrea Bargnani PF, NYK - I'm buying in if he can stay healthy (big, big" if"). Steve Novak thrived for Knicks, and he's better all around player than Novak. Will start for Knicks and offer plenty of 3's from PF position. Think he ends up a poor man's Ryan Anderson.

102. Chris Kaman PF/C, LAL - Has always put up numbers when he's had playing time. Injury concerns are plenty, but could be a cheap double/double a night guy.

103. Joe Johnson SG/SF, BKN - will not score more than 14-15 PPG, but will offer good solid numbers in 3's and assists from a shallow SG position.

104. Jamal Crawford PG/SG, LAC - Top 100 player last year, but I think JJ Reddick cuts into his numbers a bit. Streaky player who can carry a team when hot, then disappear when he's not.

105. Brandon Knight PG/SG, MIL - Not a fan at all, but will be starting at the point for the Bucks with little competition for minutes. Not an exciting options, but a solid late addition as a second or third PG. You can do much worse this late in the draft.

106. Spencer Hawes C, PHI - He'll start the season as a double/double machine, with some blocks, and out of position 3's. He'll end it losing minutes to Nerlens Noel or on another squad. Don't mind a slight reach for good early season stats.

107. Isaiah Thomas PG, SAC - Another guy who has performed well with PT. Monster second half last year, but once again finds himself in position battle going into year. Don't trust the way the Kings handle him, so I'll probably pass on draft day.

108. Jameer Nelson PG, ORL - I think Olidipo cuts into some of his time at the point, but I think he'll be better than most people think. 14 points and 6 assists a game with solid three point numbers are possible.

109. Danny Granger SF, IND - Injury prone, aging chucker will not be on any of my teams. He'll offer some numbers if he stays on the court, but it's George and Hibbert's team now.

110. Harrison Barnes SF, GSW - Still developing player with tons of upside. Continuing to develop, and I think addition of Iggy cuts into his value drastically.

111. Deandre Jordan C, LAC - He's going to destroy your FT%, but I think he finally develops under Doc Rivers. His monster preseason could be a sign of things to come.

112. Ben McLemore SG, SAC - Good talent, but I'm avoiding anyone in that crowded Sacremento back court. Will have much more upside if Thornton is traded.

113. Randy Foye PG/SG, DEN - Foye always seems to hold some time of value because of his 3pt shooting. No Gallinari or Iguodala this year could open up a bigger role for Foye.

114. Robin Lopez C, POR - It looks like he'll start for Portland, and I think he'll benefit from playing alongside Lamarcus Aldridge. Solid big man this late.

115. Avery Bradley PG/SG, BOS - Not sure how much I like him, but he'll get you some steals and will have plenty of playing time, especially while Rondo is out.

116. Lance Stephenson SG, IND - The more I think about it, I should have put him ahead of Danny Granger. I think he'll play more and be more productive as there's no way Granger stays healthy.

117. Greg Steimsma C, NO - Need blocks late? Here's your guy. He'll fill Robin Lopez's role from last year, and could be among league leaders in swats.

118. Patrick Beverly PG, HOU - This is the guy who made Houston forget about Jeremy Lin last post season. Even if he doesn't start, he'll play a lot, and could end up taking Lin's starting role sooner rather than later.

119. Michael Carter-Williams PG, PHI - One of few rookies who will end up with starter minutes out of the gate. Expect a learning curve that willad to a ton of turnovers and terrible FG%.

120. J.J. Redick SG, LAC - Coaches love this guy, And he'll find minutes somehow. Most likely will find a similar niche with Clips that he did in Orlando. Great 3 numbers, some scoring, assists, and steal.

121. Cody Zeller PF/C, CHA - He has to play alongside Al Jefferson, so I think his value is limited. Also thinks he learns a thing or two from big Al and will produce nicely if he gets playing time.

122. Tyreke Evans SG/SF, NO - Not sure his game fits the NBA. Injury prone, and already hurt. Head case who will be coming off bench. WILL NOT TOUCH HIM.

123. Kelly Olynyk C, BOS - Celtics are rebuilding, and he'll get a chance. If anything grabbing a starting C this late could be a coup.

124. Reggie Jackson PG, OKC -  Will have a ton of value early with Westbrook out, and very little once he returns. Good Handcuff in case Westbrook injury lingers.

125. Maurice Harkless SF, ORL - Terrific multi-category performer down the stretch last year in limited minutes. Don't think he takes the next step mostly due to limited minutes.

126. Andrei Kirilenko SF/PF, BKN - Stop if you heard this before. Vet will offer solid numbers across the board, but deep team will limit value.

127. Arron Afflalo SG, ORL - Offers some scoring and three's but not much else. Never took next step many predicted. May lose playing time as season goes on to younger Magic players.

128. Martell Webster SG/SF, WAS - Love him! Great second half last year. Will get more minutes than expected with Otto Porter, Jr hurt.

129. Shawn Marion SF/PF, DAL - No way he's as good as last year, but could still be plenty productive this late.

130. Dion WaitersSG, CLE - I think he'll continue to develop as attention will be on Bynum and Irving more than him. Jarrett Jack will cut into his minutes, especially if he struggles early. Think breakout season is still a year away.

131. Manu GinobiliSG/SF, SAS - He's easily a top 50 player when healthy, but injuries are a constant concern. Minutes will be lower and probably won't see much action in back to backs in an effort to keep him on court.

132. Nick Young SG/SF, LAL - If Kobe plays, I'd drop him out of top 150. If he misses time, Young can be a cheap source of 3's, points, and free throw numbers.

133. Tiago Splitter C, SAS - I probably have him a bit low. Won't score much, but does offer a wide range of help in multiple categories for a center this late. Don't mind a slight reach for him if you need a big.

134. Corey Brewer SG/SF, MIN - He's better than Shabbazz, and Budinger is hurt so he gets to start. Has always performed well when given minutes. Elite leve steals production this late is a major plus.

135. Kyle Korver SG/SF, ATL - Great season last year after being named starter. Fourth in NBA in 3's last year, but also averaged almost a steal per game and fewer than a turnover per game. Rank much higher in 9-Cat leagues.

136. Tristan Thompson PF/C, CLE - How much PT he'll get will be a huge question. Crowded front court causes concerns, but Bynum injury history could mean he gets minutes. Tyson Chandler production if he gets minutes.

137. Jarret Jack PG/SG, CLE - Solid player for assists, steals, and threes this late, but think he'll lose some PT if Waiters develops.

138. Evan Turner SG/SF, PHI - Not big on him but he will be given every opportunity to be the man in Philly this year. Great rebounding numbers for a guard, but no jumper, and not the scorer many thought he'd be.

140. Gerald Wallace SF/PF, BOS - Think he'll bounce back with Boston a bit. He'll offer a little bit of everything, but his days of being an elite fantasy player are over. Always hurt as well.

141. Nene Hilario PF/C, WAS - No Emeka Okafor means he'll get plenty of playing time. Low end double/double possible, but age and injuries make him not the player he once was.

142. Iman Shumpert SG/SF, NYK - I think he'll have a huge year. Terrific down the stretch last year. Will be a great source of threes and steals.

143. J.J. Hickson PF/C, DEN - Will lose minutes now that he's in Denver behind McGale and Faried, but should still offer close to a double/double a night. Guy did average almost 13 boards a game last year.

144. Ramon Sessions PG/SG, CHA - Crowded backcourt, so could see a dip in minutes. When he plays, he's a great scorer and offers elite leve free throw numbers.

145. Marcus Thornton SG/SF, SAC - The guy can shoot the three and go off for 20 a night, but often finds himself hurt, in a battle for minutes, or in his coach's doghouse. Could end up one of the best late round values, or a complete bust.

146. Rodney Stuckey PG/SG, DET - Huge disappointment last year after many, including me, predicted a breakout. Much better as a sixth man, super crowded back court may actually help him. One of few non superstars who can get to the line 5+ times a game.

147. Robin Lopez C, POR - Probably will start in Portland, so that's a plus. Won't score, but could be a cheap source of boards and blocks.

148. Tony Allen SG/SF, MEM - He gets minutes, he'll get you plenty of steals, but little else.

149. Archie Goodwin SG, PHO - Not huge on rookies, but I like this guy. He's going to come off the bench, but he will get minutes. He'll probably go overlooked in most drafts, but keep an eye on him, especially if Dragic ends up dealt.

150. Chauncey Billups PG/SG, DET - I'm a Chauncey guy all the way, and will use my last pick in all my drafts taking a flier on him. I think he plays and they keep him healthy by rotating guys. When he does, still will give borderline elite free throw and three point numbers.

Good luck in your drafts. If I missed anyone, or you want to ask questions about anyone who made, or didn't make my list, feel free to comment or check out one of the RotoBaller.com chat rooms. Good Luck!
