Player Analysis

9/03 - Deron Williams

Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on you. Deron Williams has actually been fooling fantasy owners into drafting him for a few years now, and this year will likely be no different with his "fresh start" in Dallas. Williams is actually a good fit for a Carlisle offense, but Deron isn't the player he once was. Draft accordingly and don't reach for him under any circumstance. (DH)Deron Williams profile page

9/03 - Nikola Mirotic

Nikola is too slow to guard small forwards and not strong or enough to guard power forwards consistently. Even so, the defensive minded Tom Thibodeau couldn't help but get him in the lineup. He is that dynamic offensively. Even his offensive numbers were somewhat erratic, but keep in mind his inconsistent playing time and the terrible offense that the Bulls ran. Mirotic is the perfect candidate to break out under the offensive minded Fred Hoiberg, who is taking the reigns in Chicago. Don't let him fall in your draft. (DH)Nikola Mirotic profile page

9/03 - Anthony Davis

The only thing holding the Brow back this season is the propensity for injury. Let's be clear; Davis is arguably the top fantasy player if not for the fear of injury that might be lingering in some owners' heads. That being said, Davis has reportedly bulked up even more and should be better conditioned than ever before. In other words, we think he's going to be healthy this year. If you don't take him with the top pick, you might regret it. If you have him in a keeper league, then you are good to go. (DH)Anthony Davis profile page

9/03 - James Harden

James Harden is coming off the best season of his career, one which arguably could have landed him the MVP award. He did it all for the Rockets last year, handling the rock as much as anybody without the point guard designation. This year, that might change, as the Rockets have brought in Ty Lawson, one of the most underrated play makers in the league the last few years. Harden's usage rate and assist totals are certain to take a hit, but he will still be a dominant scorer and a top fantasy guard.James Harden profile page

9/03 - Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose could be a fantasy sleeper this year, now that he has gotten through his first "full" season and playoff run in a few years. Believe it or not, Rose played at an MVP level on 2 or more nights of rest last season, which could be a sign that his body simply wasn't ready for the workload of an NBA season last year. If last year was a bridge year, this upcoming season could be an explosive one. Don't forget that the Bulls are moving to a more high octane offense under Fred Hoiberg. (DH)Derrick Rose profile page

9/03 - Bobby Portis

The Chicago Bulls were able to snag Bobby Portis a lot later in the draft than he was expected to be taken. While he projects as solid big man, from a fantasy perspective it's going to be tough for Portis to crack the Bulls' rotation, which features Pau Gasol, Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson, and Nikola Mirotic. If Portis can show he belongs when he receives minutes, the Bulls might be able to forced to find a way to get him action, but don't count on it this year. (DH)Bobby Portis profile page

8/31 - Bobby Portis

8/12 - Justise Winslow

Winslow was a highly touted draft asset that fell into Miami's lap at No. 10, but the fact that he slid down the board may impact his production in Year 1. The Heat are very much contenders in the East and will be better served trying to make a push with veterans Luol Deng and Dwyane Wade on the perimeter than developing a rook. Still, in the event of an injury, Winslow has an NBA-ready body and big game experience.Justise Winslow profile page

8/12 - Frank Kaminsky

Every year there's a highly decorated NCAA product that finds his way into the NBA lottery. If Kaminsky is to fare any better than his predecessors, he'll need to prove that he's more than just a seven-footer with range and that he can stand alone as a serviceable 4/5 at this level. On top of that, the Hornets have an established core and playoff aspirations, so don't expect him to play big minutes out of the gates.Frank Kaminsky profile page

8/12 - Stanley Johnson

Johnson has an NBA-ready body and will get every opportunity to prove that he can be Detroit's small forward of the future, but don't expect him to fill the stat sheet right away. The Pistons need a perimeter threat, but there's no guarantee that Johnson will develop into that prolific NBA scorer.Stanley Johnson profile page
