Draft Prep: Top 170 Composite Rankings
Draft Prep: Top 170 Composite Rankings

This article is part of our NBA Roundtable series.

Welcome to the first edition of the 2019-20 RotoWire NBA composite rankings. The regular season is just over two months away, and as we creep closer to draft season, our aim is to provide somewhat of a "consensus" opinion on the players most likely to be drafted in standard, 8-category roto leagues.

Of course, when taking personal preference into account, there are bound to be outliers, so along with an average of the four rankings, we've provided a median, which helps to standardize for players who may appear in only one or two sets of rankings.

Each of the four panelists – Nick Whalen (NW), Alex Barutha (AB), Shannon McKeown (SM) and James Anderson (JA) – submitted only their top 150 players. To account for differences in the players selected, and to prevent skewing the overall rankings, players who did not appear in an individual set of rankings were assigned a default value of 160.

Note: The column headers are sortable. The default rank on the left is based on the AVG (mean) rank of each player.

Rankings tailored to custom roster and scoring formats will be available in the coming weeks.
