Our experts’ favorite players to roster this season

We’re already into Week 5 of the NBA season, and that’s plenty of time for certain players to endear themselves to fantasy managers with their outstanding performances and sheer on-court entertainment.

So who are our experts’ favorite players for their fantasy teams this season?

Here are André Snellings, Eric Moody, Eric Karabell, Jim McCormick and John Cregan to explain their choices.


Hart might not shoot as much as we’d like thanks to the team’s powerful backcourt, but it’s so valuable when a swingman is contributing so many rebounds and assists. Hart, who scores less than 9 PPG, might be a source of whining for some, but he has almost as many rebounds as points. Emphasize the positive! Also, I love the 4.4 APG in my leagues because again this isn’t a point guard. It’s a SG/SF! No SG or SF capable player averages more rebounds. Expect Hart to look a little more for his offensive play and soon take his score into double digits. — carabelle

Doncic is great for both category and points leagues. He has averaged 34.4 PPG, 8.8 RPG, 7.8 APG, 2.1 SPG, and 0.6 BPG this season. That’s 62.7 fantasy points per game. For a Mavericks team still trying to replace Jalen Brunson, Doncic has a 38.8% utilization rate. His personality also makes him fun to watch on and off the pitch. — Moody

My bold prediction before last season was that Anunoby would become an elite 3-and-D fantasy force. While he was great last season, in a fantasy context he wasn’t among the top stats of the year. This year has been a lot more fun speaking of its historic steal rate. After all, Anunoby leads the league in swipes, currently averaging 1.8 3-pointers, 2.7 steals and one block per game. Steals are often a scarce stat, but Anunoby collects them in bundles, which is downright fun. For comparison, no player has ever averaged 1.5 3-pointers, 2.5 steals and a block per game for a season in the history of the league – apart from the current pace that Anunoby is enjoying. — McCormick

It was a tossup between Tatum and Tyrese Haliburton, but I’m giving Tatum the tiebreak because he’s currently healthy (Haliburton is questionable with an ankle injury) and the main team I put him on is comfortably in first place. Those who read my stuff know that I hate having players on the roster that I can’t trust to produce consistently. Tatum is exactly the opposite of that. He’s in his sixth NBA season and he’s always there. He has never missed more than eight games in a season in his career. His scoring average has increased every season of his career, and at age 24 he’s just in the zone. On average almost 32 points, more than seven boards and almost four assists. Career-best 1.4 blocks, career-best 3.5 3PG, and nearly a full steal per game. He shoots 49.1% from the field and 86.6% from the line, both at high volume.

So… a high-volume, high-efficiency, ever-improving Iron Man player with no apparent weakness in his game? Yes. That’s a pretty fun guy on a fantasy basketball team. — Snellings

I always enjoy when a player comes full circle in Fantasyland. He has gone from being one of the most overrated blank players in fantasy to one of the most underrated volume and efficiency success stories of 2022-23. — Kregan
