Fantasy NBA Review: Top Overachievers and Busts by Position

Our goal with this analysis is to not only tell you who the best players will be, but also tell you who the most underrated and overrated players are. This season Nikola Jokic was the number one center averaging 44.3 FPs per game. He has met high expectations. Based on average draft position, he was expected to be one of the two best players at his position. Draft based expectations were not as high for Cory Joseph the #155 ranked guard based on ADP. He was the #51 guard based on total fantasy points making him the biggest overachiever. On the other hand, a lot was expected from the #41 drafted forward, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, but he was just the #79 forward based on total fantasy production making him the biggest disappointment among players who played a significant number of games. The table below shows the Top 5 Fantasy Players by Position, the Top 5 Overachievers and the Biggest Busts
