Punting Category Rankings: Fantasy Basketball Top 100

Welcome fellow RotoBallers. For those of you still drafting your fantasy basketball teams, Trevor Crippen and Kent Shen have quite a treat for you today! Below you'll find their top 100 overall fantasy basketball rankings for punting categories - a new and unique format for draft rankings that we have never released in previous years.

These rankings are adjusted to account for strategies where one of the following categories will be punted: field goal percentage, rebounds, blocks, points, assists, free throw percentage, steals and three-pointers made. Please note they aren't intended to be used to determine where you should draft these players! You should use a standard set of ranks for that. These are just intended to show how each player's value is affected in a given punt. In case you missed it, you can find our 2018-2019 Punting Guide, which is an awesome and in-depth multi-part series breaking down the strategies for punting each specific category and also providing analysis on specific players to target based on the category being punted. You can also find our other tiered rankings and analysis columns for roto formats, head-to-head 9 category formats, and tiered rankings analysis:
