Fantasy basketball rankings 2020: NBA sleepers, breakouts and busts from proven computer model

The 2019-20 NBA season ended just month with the LeBron James and Anthony Davis leading the Los Angeles Lakers to their 17th championship. Because of the coronavirus, the NBA offseason is already winding to a close, with the 2020-21 NBA season scheduled to begin on Dec. 22. Several moves could shake up the 2020 Fantasy basketball rankings.

The Warriors were poised to get Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson back from injury while also adding James Wiseman with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Unfortunately, Thompson suffered a torn Achilles in a pickup game this offseason, which necessitated a trade for Kelly Oubre Jr. Where does Oubre belong in the 2020-21 Fantasy basketball rankings, and who are some of the 2020 Fantasy basketball sleepers, breakouts and busts you need to be aware of? Before you draft, check out the Fantasy basketball rankings 2020-21 from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Top 2020 Fantasy basketball picks

One of the 2020 Fantasy basketball sleepers from McClure’s 2020-21 Fantasy basketball rankings: Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. He is going off at No. 73 overall, according to the latest Fantasy basketball ADP, but the model has him at No. 37 overall.

The Thunder have continued to pile up assets this offseason by trading away Chris Paul and Steven Adams, which leaves Gilgeous-Alexander as the centerpiece of the current roster. Gilgeous-Alexander averaged 19.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists last season and should be more dominant in 2020-21 with Paul gone.

Another surprise: Pelicans guard JJ Redick is among the biggest 2020-21 Fantasy basketball busts. He has a Fantasy basketball ADP of 109, but the model barely ranks him in the top 175. Redick is one of the top shooters in the NBA and still produced 15.3 points per game as a 35-year-old last season.

However, he saw his field goal attempts drop from 13.5 per game to 10.5 over the last two years and will be coming off the bench behind Eric Bledsoe at the two. He’s likely to play fourth or fifth fiddle offensively and he doesn’t have much upside as a rebounder, passer or defender to contribute in the other counting stats.

How to find proven 2020 Fantasy basketball rankings

The model has also made the call on where Russell Westbrook ranks after a tumultuous offseason and features a stunner in the top 10 that you need to see. You can only see the latest Fantasy basketball rankings 2020 here.
