Fantasy Basketball Rankings 2022-23 - Top 150 NBA Fantasy Draft Ranks

This article is part of our Player Rankings series.

Opening Night in the NBA arrives this week, so it's officially crunch time for fantasy basketball players. Now is your final chance to prepare for 2022-23 fantasy basketball drafts. Read on to find RotoWire's fantasy basketball projections

The rankings below are engineered for eight-category, roto leagues, but they can operate as a general guide for most fantasy basketball formats.

Nikola Jokic is our No. 1 overall player in virtually any scoring format. The two-time reigning MVP has been the best fantasy producer over the past two seasons. He's the favorite to go No. 1 in most drafts – regardless of settings – again this fall. Jokic is followed by Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, Jayson Tatum and Joel Embiid.

Also, take a look at our fantasy basketball rookie rankings and fantasy basketball dynasty rankings.
