The NBA season is upon us and with that comes the fantasy basketball season.
Stars like Nikola Jokic and Giannis Antetokounmpo are sure to be at the top of anyone’s pecking order when formulating the perfect draft game plan.
However, you shouldn’t neglect Phoenix Suns in the early parts of your draft.
Devin Booker and Chris Paul bring their respective talents to the table to earn points, while Deandre Ayton could easily exceed expectations and become a stat-stuffer when it comes time for the game.
Five Suns was named to NBA.com’s Top 150 Fantasy Basketball Players for the upcoming season. Here they landed:
#15: Devin Booker
“Devin Booker, PHX, G: Despite the MVP hype, Booker’s 2021-22 campaign was actually only his third best from a fantasy perspective. Still, he’s young enough to continue to improve and could find more use as Chris Paul ages. “
Ranked above: Darius garland
Ranked below: LaMelo Ball
No. 28: Chris Paul
“Chris Paul, PHX, G: Paul has incredibly flipped the script for his health as he turns late 30s. He averaged 10.8 assists and 1.9 steals and was ranked 20th per game getting older, but still feels like a relatively safe option despite risk factors.”
Ranked above: Anthony Edwards
Ranked below: Pascal Siakam
No. 51: Deandre Ayton
“Deandre Ayton, PHO, C: The center comes alongside his 10.2 RPG with an efficient 63.4 FG% and 74.6 FT% to a career-high 17.2 PPG. It remains to be seen how much he can increase his production and usage, but he’s a high-floor option at the position in Fantasy.”
Placed above: Jordan Poole
Ranked below: OG Anunoby
No. 68: Mikal Bridges
“Mikal Bridges, PHO, Q: While he can’t be more than a fourth option as long as Chris Paul, Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton are around, Bridges continues to remain one of the top three-and-D options in the NBA.”
Placed above: Lonzo Ball
Ranked below: Jalen Green
No. 143: Cameron Johnson
“Cameron Johnson, PHO, Q: Johnson hit career highs in virtually every category in 2021-22, including 2.5 threes per game at a 42.5 percent clip.”
Ranked at the top: Kevin Hürter
Ranked below: Jonathan Kuminga
