Our Fantasy Basketball Power Forwards (PF) Rankings for the 2014-15 Season – Top 55

A look at the top 55 fantasy basketball power forwards (PF) for the 2014-2015 season. Jared Kwart shares his fantasy power forward (PF) rankings for the top 55 at the position, heading into 2015 fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Basketball Rankings 2014-15: PG | SG | SF | PF | C

Miss our Point Guard, Shooting Guard, Power Forward or Small Forward Rankings for 2015? We’ve gone over the point guard, shooting guard and small forward positions for the upcoming season already, which you can read more about here in case you missed it: Point Guard Rankings | Shooting Guard Rankings | Small Forward Rankings | Center Rankings

Power forward is a fairly deep position in the fantasy basketball world. Though one man stands alone on the top (hint – he has an epic unibrow), there is plenty of help in the top 12.

The real drop-off happens after Tier 5, so make sure you grab one or two guys in the top 19 to anchor yourself at this position. Guys up to Tier 7 will be relevant in standard 10 and 12 team leagues, but Tiers 8 through 10 are going to be of interest to those with larger groups of managers, deep benches or dynasty/keeper formats.

Owners in 10 and 12 team leagues should get to know the entire list, though. Injuries happen each and every year – and so do breakout seasons for players that aren’t on our radars heading into drafts.

Important note as you read through these rankings: Keep in mind that these fantasy basketball power forward guard rankings are being shared through the lens of a standard rotisserie league, including turnovers as a category. If you’re in a league that doesn’t require you to start someone at the defined “power forward” position (i.e. you have all “utility” spots or non-denominational “forward” slots) you’ll want to alter your strategy and rankings appropriately.

Tier 1 – It’s all about the brow, bro

  • Anthony Davis, Nor PF, C (The Unibrow stands alone. Legitimate shot to be the number 1 overall fantasy player. Helps you everywhere and is a joy to watch/own.)

Tier 2 – The next best things

  • Serge Ibaka, OKC PF (Love his consistency and help in a super scarce category with blocks.)
  • Kevin Love, Cle PF (I talked about how I thought he was being overvalued in early drafts. Since then, things have started coming back down to earth a little bit. I’ve seen him go in the 10-15 range in some drafts overall. Still love his skills and what he brings to the table in fantasy.)
  • LaMarcus Aldridge, Por PF (Great player and provides a ton at the PF position. I don’t usually find myself owning him, but he’s fantastic.)
  • Blake Griffin, LAC PF (Like Aldridge, I don’t own him in many leagues. You have to love his FG% prowess and the way he has increased his FT% over last season. If he can continue to show growth in his game, look out – he’ll have top 10 overall upside.)

Tier 3 – A trio of reliable veterans

  • Dirk Nowitzki, Dal PF (Big 2013-14 for Dirk. Not a sexy option, but he gets the job done. Great percentages, about 20 points a game, and 3s. Sign me up, if the price is right.)
  • Paul Millsap, Atl PF (Fantastic all-around game. Love getting steals, blocks and a bit of everything else from the PF position.)

  • Pau Gasol, Chi PF (This may be a bit of an aggressive ranking to some. However, I am very high on him this season. Love the system he’s going to and the role he will play. He won’t return to a top 10 overall ranking like he was at one point, but for me he’s a top 10 option at PF this year. Lock it in.)

Tier 4 – A couple breakout candidates and a couple reliable big men

  • Derrick Favors, Uta PF (Big year for Favors. Many expected him to have a beastly 2013-14. Now is the time for him to do just that. May be able to get him at a very slight discount because of that. If you can – pounce.)
  • Kenneth Faried, Den PF (The Manimal is poised for a big year. Fantastic FG% which can help you significantly in roto formats and also provides nice numbers in rebounds, steals and blocks. A steady player that is usually high on a lot of lists – so don’t overpay unless you love him.)
  • David Lee, GS PF (His stock has fallen but his numbers haven’t changed too much. A great source of FG%, FT%, points and rebounds.)
  • Tim Duncan, SA PF (Proved many people wrong last year by putting up a top 30 overall season. He will likely regress a little bit this year as he gets closer to 40 years of age. That being said, he’s efficient and a 15/7/3/1/1 with a 50% FG% and 74% FT% are within reach.)

Tier 5 – Where things start to get interesting

  • Jared Sullinger, Bos PF (I mentioned him in my bold predictions, and I’ve got him ranked 14th overall in this article to back it up. He will have a massive season for the Celtics.)
  • Ryan Anderson, Nor PF (Great option for 3s at the PF spot. Don’t underrate his value.)
  • Terrence Jones, Hou PF
  • Markieff Morris, Pho PF
  • Tobias Harris, Orl PF (Appears to be back in good shape and ready to make good on what should have been in 2013-14. Buy him at a discount if you can. Has potential to be a top 15 option at power forward.)
  • Zach Randolph, Mem PF

Tier 6 – Should be steady for 10 points, 7 rebounds and a block for the most part

  • Greg Monroe, Det PF (Coming at a nice discount this year. Flaws in his game at the free throw line and turnovers – but gets steals, points and boards. Not a bad option if you miss out on the top 5 tiers.)
  • Taj Gibson, Chi PF (Underrated source of blocks.)
  • Josh McRoberts, Mia PF (I like him to have a quietly productive season. A dozen points, 7 boards, 3 assists and a steal/block are within reach. He also shoots 3s.)
  • John Henson, Mil PF (If he can find 25+ minutes a game – he’ll have a lot of value.)
  • Amir Johnson, Tor PF (Worried he’ll miss 15+ games due to injury, but will get you 12 points, 8 rebounds and a block when in the lineup with good percentages.)
  • Jordan Hill, LAL PF (I’m not as high on him as many are… but if he does play 30 minutes, he’ll be fine for similar to what Amir brings.)
  • Nene, Wsh PF (Injuries, injuries, injuries. Ideally a bench player for you.)

Tier 7 – A pretty significant dropoff from Tier 6, but still of value in deeper leagues

  • Carlos Boozer, LAL PF (Nothing flashy, but should get ample run and will be decent for points and rebounds.)
  • Brandan Wright, Dal PF (Lots of love for him as a deep sleeper. Elite FG% and blocks when he gets time on the floor. If he can find his way into 30 minutes a game – he has top 15 potential at the position. Unlikely given the role Dallas likes him in, but you never know.)
  • Andrea Bargnani, NY PF (Prone to the turnover, but has looked pretty good in the preseason and will get plenty of court time. A cheap source of points, rebounds and 3s late in your draft.)
  • Mirza Teletovic, Bkn PF (Could be a great source of 3s if he gets 20-25 minutes.)
  • Ersan Ilyasova, Mil PF

Tier 8 – Rookies, post-hype sleepers and bench depth

  • Julius Randle, LAL PF (Don’t think he’ll have much value in 2014. Good keeper target, though.)
  • Channing Frye, Orl PF
  • Miles Plumlee, Pho PF (Appears he’s going to be “the guy” in Phoenix down the middle. Should average close to a double double but with about a block, but not much else. Has potential to produce top 25 value if he gets the minutes.)
  • Patrick Patterson, Tor PF (Great off the bench for the Raptors. In daily leagues, he’s a nice player. He’ll have some that wow you and some that are duds. Overall, he should get 10 points and 6 boards a game.)
  • Anthony Bennett, Min PF (Nice late round, deep sleeper here. Should have the spotlight off him in Minnesota one year after being the #1 overall pick. Played really well in his last preseason game on Oct 10 with 13 points, 8 rebounds in 25 minutes. Could be a sign of things to come.)
  • Aaron Gordon, Orl PF (Should get playing time for Orlando and is a nice young player. Very raw, though.)
  • Tiago Splitter, SA PF
  • Tristan Thompson, Cle PF

Tier 9 – Sexy options they are not, but I’m willing to bet they’ll have some value

  • Mason Plumlee, Bkn PF (After watching him a few times during the regular season and again for 7 games in the playoffs – I have to say I love Plumlee’s game. He’s an absolute beast. He can finish around the basket, rebound and defend very well. The question is if he’ll ever be a 30 minute a game guy. He wasn’t last year, and may only get low 20s this year. His time will come, though. Keep a close eye on him in deeper leagues. We should be looking at a double double threat nightly once he approaches 25-30 minutes a night.)
  • Brandon Bass, Bos PF
  • Jon Leuer, Mem PF (Was really solid last year in relief of Marc Gasol. Has a nice, versatile game. Can shoot the 3, rebound and score.)
  • Boris Diaw, SA PF
  • Amar’e Stoudemire, NY PF
  • J.J. Hickson, Den PF
  • Luis Scola, Ind PF (If David West or Roy Hibbert miss time, Scola will be a hot pickup.)
  • Kyle O’Quinn, Orl PF

Tier 10 – The best of the rest

  • Anthony Tolliver, Pho PF (May end up playing a Channing Frye-like role for Phoenix. A late round source of points and 3s with a handful of rebounds. Don’t sleep too much on him in deep leagues.)
  • Kevin Garnett, Bkn PF
  • Marcus Morris, Pho PF
  • Ed Davis, LAL PF (Should get some run in Los Angeles. Keep an eye if Hill or Randle don’t pan out.)
  • Glen Davis, LAC PF
  • Jason Smith, NY PF
  • Pero Antic, ATL PF (He’s close to last on this list, but that’s because I was quite impressed with what I saw last year. He’ll need injuries to get playing time, but if he gets opportunities he will have some value. Can pass and shoot the 3. A nice weapon on the deep end for Atlanta.)
  • Drew Gooden, Wsh PF
