NBA Rookie Rankings

The following is a list of the top 100 NBA rookies for the 2012-13 season.  This list is not limited to 2012 draftees, but it includes top draftees from past years who have not played a game in the NBA.  The focus of this ranking is on their fantasy impact, so their ability to crack a lineup or feed off of quality players is considered.

1) :NOR: F Anthony Davis - Should be an elite defender in the NBA with his tremendous rebounding and blocking potential. Probably will take a few years to be groomed into being a high scoring big man.
2) :CHA: F Michael Kidd-Gilchrist -
3) :WAS-NBA: G Bradley Beal - Some question his ability to be a legit scorer since he wasn't a good shooter at Florida. He'll have to improve his shooting if he is going to succeed at the next level.
4) :SAC: F Thomas Robinson - Will live on the boards and get 8+ rebounds per game.
5) :GS: F Harrison Barnes -
6) :DET-NBA: C Andre Drummond - going to be a top 5 guy, top 10 at worst, but we have some serious reservations about him being able to assert his will at the next level.  There is a real learning curve for him to adjust.
7) :NOR: G Austin Rivers - Great scoring potential. Barring in injuries, he could be a legit 20+ PPG guy in a few years
8) :TOR-NBA: C Jonas Valančiūnas - Lithuanian product, drafted 5th overall in 2011 is still a rookie… Great rebounding and blocking potential.
9) :PHX: G Kendall Marshall - Has the potential to be a great assist guy in the NBA. Will have to be behind Dragic in Phoenix first though.
10) :HOU-NBA: G Jeremy Lamb -
11) :PHI-NBA: F Moe Harkless - a work in progress, but should be shooting up the prospect list because of his raw talent.  It may take 2-3 seasons to groom him, but he has some serious talent.
12) :POR: G Damian Lillard -
13) :BOS-NBA: F Jared Sullinger - Back injuries could derail his career before too long. But if he can find a way to stay healthy and overcome the back issues, should be a steal for Boston.
14) :TOR-NBA: G Terrence Ross -
15) :CLE-NBA: G Dion Waiters -
16) :OKC: F Perry Jones III - has the potential to be a perennial all-star and is undervalued in my book.  He has the reputation of not working hard enough, but I think is because he makes it look easy and with his supporting cast has not had to put up monster numbers.
17) :MIL-NBA: F John Henson -
18) :MIA-NBA: F Arnett Moultrie -
19) :POR: C Meyers Leonard - Plenty of raw talent and size here (7-1)
20) :DAL-NBA: C Tyler Zeller -
21) :HOU-NBA: F Terrence Jones -
22) :HOU-NBA: F Royce White -
23) :ORL: F Andrew Nicholson - Highest drafted player not born in USA (Canada) in 2012
24) :CHI-NBA: G Marquis Teague -
25) :ATL-NBA: G John Jenkins -

27) :DEN-NBA: F Quincy Miller -
28) :GS: F Draymond Green -
29) :MIL-NBA: G Doron Lamb -
30) :MEM: G Tony Wroten -

33) :CHA: F Jeffery Taylor - Sweden product has some potential and plenty of opportunity in Charlotte
34) :BOS-NBA: C Fab Melo - Brazilian born Melo lands in Beantown where he can learn from greats and hopefully fill their shoes years to come
35) :CLE-NBA: G Jared Cunningham - Cleveland is putting together a team deep in young talent
36) :DEN-NBA: G Evan Fournier - Frenchmen Fournier has some work to do
37) :WAS-NBA: G Tomas Satoransky - Spanish ball experience could give this Czech an edge with plethora of guards in D.C.
38) :CLE-NBA: F Kevin Jones -
39) :MIN-NBA: G William Buford - Undrafted, but considered top 40 prospect
40) :DET-NBA: F Khris Middleton -

    Today at 09:42:00 AM
  • PigsRule: A very exclusive club
    Today at 09:42:17 AM
  • cheesesteak: Fowler to Cards = CarGo trade to Toronto
    Today at 10:38:23 AM
  • Daddy: Haha, I've been known to discover a few in my time snugerud.
    Today at 11:17:42 AM
  • Daddy: More so to close them than exploit them. FNHL is pretty tight, they have learned over the years how to minimize or close them.
    Today at 11:19:54 AM
  • Daddy: Other leagues I've been in, now off-site or dead were learning on the fly. Rules were not so tightly written.
    Today at 11:22:13 AM
  • Daddy: Still there's Slackjack, The Patriots, then I'm on the list somewhere top 25 :)
    Today at 11:25:53 AM
  • Jonathan: Everyone, who is competitive tries to find ways to win. My comment had nothing to do with that though. I said Slack was one of the best at accessing talent in drafting and young talent. There is no loophole in that. Look at Colorado.
    Today at 11:35:25 AM
  • Jonathan: If slack still ran that team, they would be top 3 without a doubt. How is a Victor Rask hit still counting against the cap? LOL
    Today at 11:37:52 AM
  • Jonathan: I meant assessing not accessing.
    Today at 11:45:07 AM
  • Daddy: Agreed he knew his stuff
    Today at 11:50:19 AM
  • Jonathan: Derek Carr's MVP campaign gets kicked in nuts by Chiefs defense. Carr played like a poor man's Brock Osweiler.
    Today at 12:21:36 PM
  • snugerud: I have been known to exploit some loopholes in my.   Speaking of that.  I might be open to paying a team to take Dubnyk short term to protect him until after the expansion draft.  I would definitely pay a fee for this.
    Today at 12:44:58 PM
  • snugerud: ha ha ,, is that against the spirit of the expansion draft?
    Today at 12:45:23 PM
  • Jonathan: no, Jack already made it known his Flames would be doing same thing....... then he sold them.
    Today at 12:47:02 PM
  • Eric: Morning fellas
    Today at 12:49:25 PM
  • snugerud: i dont know if he had much to worry about with the flames goalies....
    Today at 12:50:23 PM
  • snugerud: bigger fish to fry
    Today at 12:50:31 PM
  • PigsRule: The loopholes are there to be used within reason. The moment someone goes out of their way to stick us with aton of eztra work the hammer drops. Simple.
    Today at 12:55:25 PM
  • PigsRule: If someone paid me to manually process
    Today at 12:56:01 PM
  • PigsRule: I wouldnt care how many time someone wanted to buyout and resign a fantasy player. But dont do it to show up someone else then cry to a site admin
    Today at 12:57:01 PM
  • PigsRule: Pretty sure FNHL is an adults only type league ... more fun for all that way
    Today at 12:57:33 PM
  • PigsRule: Snug. You can protect your player within reason. But if a team stashes your assets and they get a wasted out spec for their effort that would be vetoed.
    Today at 12:58:50 PM
  • PigsRule: Or Devan can be traded for a ton of good stuff and everyones happy
    Today at 12:59:34 PM
  • PigsRule: Several teams are in same boat. Van Edm Phi and a few others would offer up some goods in exchange for a starter
    Today at 01:00:29 PM
  • PigsRule: Crow. Lets talk needs. DaL and Fla
    Today at 01:01:15 PM
  • PigsRule: I know you dont want to stand pat with those Stars
    Today at 01:01:44 PM
  • halo99: Agree with PR. You can always work out a deal with Vegas for him to take somebody else other than Dubnyk
    Today at 01:04:17 PM
  • halo99: nhl teams do that all the time with expansion drafts
    Today at 01:04:28 PM
