LeBron James's Fantasy Scouting Report

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest pre-season projection, you can expect LeBron James will be an elite fantasy starter. His 3894 projected fantasy points puts him at #2 behind Giannis Antetokounmpo and ahead of Anthony Davis. He has averaged 50.6 fantasy points in his past 55 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 52.6 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#1) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 74%, he is the #38 most highly owned forward. LeBron James is expected to improve on last season's #8 fantasy position rank.
