Bold predictions for the NBA season

Sometimes it takes an expert’s eye to see something before everyone else does, like the monster rookie season Franz Wagner had at Orlando last season, or Jordan Poole upping his game like he did at Golden State en route to the championship did.

With that in mind, we’ve gathered our fantasy basketball experts – André Snellings, Eric Moody, Eric Karabell and Jim McCormick – to share their wildest fantasy basketball predictions for 2022-23.


Rise of Sabonis

Domantas Sabonis finishes as a top 10 player in category formats.

Just before the end of last season, he was traded off by the Kings for Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield, and he was averaging 18.9 points, 12.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game while averaging 55.4 in 15 games with Sacramento % shot from the field. There is a perception among fantasy managers that the king’s talent reduces his imagination limit, but the opposite may be true. If he improves his defensive stats, Sabonis has a chance to actually exceed expectations. — Moody

Top options arise from the 2020 draft class

At least three members of the 2020 NBA draft class will finish in the top 20 fantasy points scored that season.

This class is both top heavy and deep, with LaMelo Ball and Haliburton in my preseason top 25, Anthony Edwards and Desmond Bane in my preseason top 50, and others like Tyrese Maxey, Devin Vassell, Cole Anthony, Jalen Smith, and Saddiq Bey already established himself as a productive professional with potential. And that’s not even counting guys like James Wiseman or Patrick Williams, top five picks who missed most/all of last season’s injuries. — Snellings

A new shot-blocking squad in Utah

Utah Jazz rookie C Walker Kessler will lead the NBA in blocked shots, both per game and overall.

Yes, I was there. Kessler had almost as many blocks in the SEC as field goals last season, and he was hitting double digits. The Jazz is tanking/rebuilding and Kelly Olynyk shouldn’t affect game time much if he’s even around past the close. Kessler may statistically look like the Pacers’ Myles Turner, but it seems few people think of him in the imagination. — carabelle

Sexton stars with the jazz

Collin Sexton scores higher than Donovan Mitchell on the Player Rater.

This one qualifies as brave given the sizeable ADP gap between those two and the fact that Mitchell ranked 11th in the player rater among point guards and eighth among shooting guard-qualified players last season. Sexton will require a tremendous workload for a lottery-tied Jazz team and is an ideal mid-round pick for any build, but especially for those investing heavily in the frontcourt in the early rounds. – McCormick
