Sometimes, it takes an expert to see something before everyone else. This is the case with the rookie season.During the last season in Orlando His game was elevated like it was in Golden State, on his way to the title.
With that in mind, we gathered our fantasy basketball experts — André Snellings, Eric Moody, Eric Karabell and Jim McCormick — to explain their boldest fantasy basketball predictions for 2022-23.
Rise of Sabonis
In category formats, finishes in the top-10.
He was traded to Kings shortly before the trade deadline.And He averaged 18.9 points, 12.3 boards, 5.8 assists, and shot 55.4% from the floor in his 15 games with Sacramento. Fantasy managers have a tendency to believe that Kings' talent lowers Sabonis' fantasy ceiling. However, this could be false. Sabonis can exceed his fantasy ceiling if he improves on his defensive stats. — Moody
The 2020 draft class offers top options
Three members of the 2020 NBA Draft Class will be among the top-20 fantasy points scorers this season.
This class is both high-stakes and deep.Haliburton and Haliburton were in my preseason top-25 And Preseason top-50 list, and others , , , And Already proving themselves as productive pros with upside. This is not counting guys like Oder The top five picks who were injured in the last season's most or all of it. — Snellings
Utah's new shot-blocking force
rookie C Block shots per game and in total will lead the NBA's leading player.
Yes, I did. Kessler played in almost as many blocks in the SEC as he did in field goals last season, and he scored in double digits. The Jazz are rebuilding and in a state of decline.He shouldn't cause any problems with playing time, even if he's not available by the deadline. Kessler may statistically resemble the Pacers. He is, however, it seems that very few people think about him in fantasy. — Karabell
Sexton stars with Jazz
Finishes higher on the Player Rater .
This one is bold due to the large ADP gap between them and the fact Mitchell placed eighth on the Player Rater last year among point guards, and eighth among those eligible for shooting guard. Sexton will take a lot of work for a Jazz team that is lottery bound. This makes him an ideal mid-round pick for any build. McCormick
