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 -
31) :MIN-NBA: F Donatas Motiejunas - Another Lithuanian big man drafted in 2011
32) :POR: G Will Barton -
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 -

  • Daddy: Goff or Wentz? Rams or Eagles? Or all of the above getting it right?

  • Daddy: Will the Cowboys take Elliot #4?
    April 27, 2016, 04:21:23 PM
  • Jonathan: I don't think anyone cares. Current state of this site. I would be shocked if Goff isn't a Ram. After 3 it appears wide open. I made a little mock for round 1, but its pretty unpredictable.
    April 27, 2016, 07:04:27 PM
  • Jonathan: [link]
    April 27, 2016, 07:04:48 PM
  • Jonathan: Seems like news comes out everyday that changes things, even just a little. For Instance, Tunsil getting sued came out today. Not sure if it makes any difference.
    April 27, 2016, 07:06:06 PM
  • Jonathan: Nkemdiche and Spence are two guys that will be tough for teams to pass on, as they are highly rated as football players.  They should both go in round 1.
    April 27, 2016, 07:13:45 PM
  • Tubbs: I predict Joey Bosa to be a bust.
    April 27, 2016, 10:41:46 PM
  • chrisetc21: Hopefully the Cowboys draft Bosa then
    April 28, 2016, 01:50:28 PM
  • Jonathan: If the chargers do take Ramsey, then I think it is EE, your #1 fantasy prospect.
    April 28, 2016, 07:07:29 PM
  • Jonathan: I guess we find out starting in 30 minutes.
    April 28, 2016, 08:35:12 PM
  • Jonathan: wow, they took bosa. Cowboys idiots if they take EE with Buckner/Ramsey still there
    April 28, 2016, 09:31:41 PM
  • Jonathan: should of traded back, took him too early.
    April 28, 2016, 09:40:49 PM
  • Jonathan: 5. Ramsey  and now 6. Tunsil 7. Buckner look solid.
    April 28, 2016, 09:49:52 PM
  • Jonathan: Stanley went 6 and of course Chip team takes oregon player. ha.
    April 28, 2016, 10:02:04 PM
  • Jonathan: Looks like Titans getting Tunsil.
    April 28, 2016, 10:03:19 PM
  • Jonathan: I guess nobody wants Tunsil.
    April 28, 2016, 10:06:33 PM
  • Jonathan: Tennessee Titans believe OT Jack Conklin has the potential to never tweet out a photo of himself wearing gasmask.
    April 28, 2016, 10:12:12 PM
  • Jonathan: Laremy Tunsil forgot to put on his formal gas mask when on stage to meet Roger Goodell, bad job by him.
    April 28, 2016, 10:53:05 PM
  • Tubbs: Ha.  Watch Tunsil become perennial all star.
    April 28, 2016, 11:14:56 PM
  • Tubbs: Or all pro.....
    April 28, 2016, 11:15:52 PM
  • Jonathan: Tunsil's gas mask helped him dodge Browns and Titans.
    April 28, 2016, 11:45:24 PM
  • Jonathan: Dee Gordon been hanging with Colabello! #cheaters
    April 29, 2016, 12:09:53 PM
  • Jwalk100: Another fraud
    April 29, 2016, 01:10:31 PM
  • chrisetc21: it's funny, I had Gordon in one league and I cut him because he was really terrible
    April 29, 2016, 03:23:09 PM
  • chrisetc21: shortly after someone else picked him up and all of a sudden he was hitting like an all-star
    April 29, 2016, 03:23:27 PM
  • chrisetc21: now I know why
    April 29, 2016, 03:23:53 PM

    April 30, 2016, 02:11:18 AM
  • Jonathan: Giles is getting roughed up every time he steps on mound. Ouch
    April 30, 2016, 02:26:26 AM
  • chrisetc21: He has no control
    April 30, 2016, 02:33:52 AM
  • Jonathan: Send him to minors, at least it won't cost them games.
    April 30, 2016, 03:07:05 AM
  • Jonathan: Connor Cook to da Raiders.
    April 30, 2016, 02:21:55 PM

    April 30, 2016, 09:50:08 PM

    April 30, 2016, 11:58:55 PM
