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)

21) :HOU-NBA: F Terrence Jones -

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

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 -

  • Scalious: He'll be fun to watch in what limited innings we see him id think
    May 27, 2016, 06:11:37 PM
  • Jonathan: De Leon should be primed to have a significant role this year. He has only pitched 5 innings this year, so far.
    May 27, 2016, 06:51:10 PM
  • Jonathan: They built him up to almost 120 last year.
    May 27, 2016, 06:53:34 PM
  • indiansnation: Hey scal and johnathan
    May 27, 2016, 06:53:44 PM
  • Jonathan: Send me Robles
    May 27, 2016, 07:03:52 PM
  • Scalious: Ha. I remember giving him a MLB contract
    May 27, 2016, 07:05:30 PM
  • Scalious: Mostly as a defensive move to keep him out of JPs hands
    May 27, 2016, 07:05:57 PM
  • Jonathan: Yeah, his value would be sky high if he had control and in minors. Not so much on a MLB deal.
    May 27, 2016, 07:10:46 PM
  • Jonathan: I tend to leave no money for latter on in year. I am in same boat this year. That is why I recently bid up a bunch of guys scoring points over waiting for j2 guys. I know teams have way too much cap for me to stand a chance lol
    May 27, 2016, 07:16:58 PM
  • cjbeckel: Jonathan, you sold me damaged goods, Cain couldn't even last two innings
    May 27, 2016, 11:30:13 PM
  • Jonathan: Coors field buddy. I told you that. Dont feel bad, I inherited Rockies to start with. No pitchers.
    May 27, 2016, 11:32:17 PM
  • Jonathan: I also inherited that farm way before it was good  :doh:
    May 27, 2016, 11:32:58 PM
  • Jonathan: Cain pulled his hammy.
    May 27, 2016, 11:33:51 PM
  • Jonathan: JP when you get a chance, Anthony Bass never got removed from my team.
    May 27, 2016, 11:42:36 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I'll take care of it now
    Yesterday at 12:14:26 AM
  • cjbeckel: The Rox pitching staff...that is a tough place to start from
    Yesterday at 12:55:55 AM
  • Scalious: Espically in a league where TOR arms are king
    Yesterday at 12:57:15 AM
  • Scalious: Those huge negatives for pitchers giving up HRs can be killer in week to week
    Yesterday at 12:58:25 AM
  • Jonathan: The best hope is that they get traded to better place. Like Pomeranz
    Yesterday at 01:08:12 AM
  • cjbeckel: Really the only kind of pitcher that can make it in Denver is a guy like Ubaldo Jimenez
    Yesterday at 01:12:25 AM
  • cjbeckel: He had great movement on his pitches, especially down in the strike zone.  It was really hard to hit homers on that guy
    Yesterday at 01:15:29 AM
  • Jonathan: Rams have worst abbreviation in pro sports. I though it was a college. LARM
    Yesterday at 09:06:37 AM
  • Jonathan: Pretty sure LA would of been fine. Last I checked, there is only one team there.
    Yesterday at 09:07:41 AM
  • themarksman13: Why not just LAR?
    Yesterday at 03:54:37 PM
  • cjbeckel: Four of the top five SP in ML scoring will be free agents this offseason (Kershaw, Arrieta, Sale and Strasburg)!!
    Yesterday at 03:59:47 PM
  • cjbeckel: Hey Scals are you the owner of Boston and looking for a GM or is it an open team?
    Yesterday at 08:48:19 PM
  • Scalious: If someone wants to buy it. They can!
    Yesterday at 09:24:22 PM
  • Scalious: Obivously not built to win this year. But stocked up the farm and tons of future cap to work with..
    Yesterday at 09:26:55 PM
  • cjbeckel: What is the payment status for :BOS: ?
    Yesterday at 10:46:24 PM
  • Scalious: Its Currently paid for this year at least
    Yesterday at 10:48:56 PM
  • cjbeckel: I could pay 2017 and onward for :BOS: if there is a good GM out there...
    Yesterday at 11:16:29 PM
  • cjbeckel: Is there a good GM out there??
    Yesterday at 11:16:50 PM
  • Scalious: lol.. I thought you were inplying you knew someone
    Yesterday at 11:21:28 PM
  • Scalious: I hired a guy..but he made 1-2 apperances so far
    Yesterday at 11:22:21 PM
  • Jonathan: He wanted Dansby, but wasn't willing to include any top prospects.  :P
    Yesterday at 11:26:20 PM
  • Jonathan: I want your best guy, buy so and so can't be in deal. Funny stuff.
    Yesterday at 11:27:04 PM
  • cjbeckel: Jonathan gave a similar response regarding Jimmie in the new Payment Tracker Thread.  Well let’s give him a chance.  I’m open to helping out if we need to have an owner for that team moving forward.  In the meantime, it looks like we have a full 30 team league then!
    Yesterday at 11:28:40 PM
  • cjbeckel: You cant deny that Dansby is a stud
    Yesterday at 11:30:27 PM
  • Jonathan: Yeah, but looking deeper.... he hasn't been on site since the 17th
    Yesterday at 11:30:48 PM
  • cjbeckel: Well, that was only 11 days ago, let's see what happens
    Yesterday at 11:35:23 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I would put the :COL: owner in the same boat. I've never looked for a replacement because CJ foots the bill. But he is/has always been a ghost.
    Today at 12:27:02 AM
  • Jpsprague10: I typically start monitering activity around this time so we have an idea of how much may need recruited for.
    Today at 12:32:02 AM
  • cjbeckel: Yes, Mike showed great promise and did a good job on cleaning up the roster.  I have been hopeful that he would return, but he has not logged in since Feb.  He put the ROX in a great position to move forward.  If he does not return this year I will consider him MIA, and do the work of rebuilding the ROX myself because :SEA: is far more marketable.
    Today at 12:37:35 AM
  • cjbeckel: Not everyone is as great as Calvin in :TEX:
    Today at 12:38:28 AM
  • cjbeckel: I personally really liked Mike, I hope he returns this year.  When here he is a very good member of ML
    Today at 12:43:39 AM
  • cjbeckel: Is Nick still the person we need to send payment to every year or has that changed?
    Today at 12:57:19 AM
  • Jonathan: Dodgers Chase Utley playing the villain role like a boss in New York.
    Today at 06:03:21 AM
  • Jonathan: Astros have 1-6 record in Dallas Keuchel’s last 7 starts. 2015 Cy Young winner has 0-5 (7.56) ERA allowing .333 BA in this stretch
    Today at 06:03:59 AM
