Player rankings

Fantasy is fantasy, but what do you think of this list and Chris Bosh's ranking at 8th? i.e. how the list translates to actual player values.

Chris Paul isn't even on the list?!?!?!

What's with the 23 game cut-off? Paul has 22 games through Dec 31st.

its a good position and it really does translate actual player values because all of those players are averaging above 20 ppg and getting double doubles constantly, as well as those players all have winning records currently

Umm... Bosh is about right, but I wouldn't take Nash over him. After that, it's kinda skewed. Al Horford? Joe Johnson? Zack Randolph? They're all very good players, but not franchise types, I would take an old, less productive KG over them any day just for the leadership he brings to a team.

And if you're building a team for future, Durant should be number 1 by far. The kid is going to have an amazing career in the NBA.

The ratings are obviously culled from another source.

fantasy has no relation with real value - it's just a pure measure of production who completely ignores defense, and loves chuckers and great players alike. Players who get injured more often are downgraded, and players on deep teams are at a disadvantage too, as they have to sacrifice a little to teammates.

For example, Granger was the 4th best rated player before this season, and in real life he's more like at the bottom end of the top 50.

So the Top 3 players are Lebron, Kobe, and Wade. The rest of the top ten include Dwight Howard, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Steve Nash, Dirk Notwitzki. I think fantasy has done a pretty god job. It bang on with the TOP 3. Face it, you just hate it because Bosh is ranked so high and Bargnani is only ranked #12 among centers.

Know what's really interesting? Compare actual salaries to this fantasy production list and you see some guys with lifetime achievement award type pay, some guys with potential-to-be-somebody pay. Easier said than done, but an effective GM will have to cast off guys just after the top of their plateau to a sucker team who just wants a big name. At the same time, you can't pay a guy big time based on potential.
