NBA Fantasy Basketball 2015-2016 | Top 50 Center (C) Rankings

A look at the top 50 fantasy basketball centers (C) for the 2015-2016 NBA season.

Moxyball experts put their fantasy basketball minds together to share their thoughts on the top 50 centers to consider for rotisserie NBA leagues in 2015-16.

This year, Zach and I are going to compile our individual ranks and consolidate to bring you a consensus look at the top options at each position.

Today’s feature focuses on the center position.

This is where you really want to focus on adding depth for the field goal percentage and rebounds categories, as well as an added focus on blocks. As mentioned in the power forward column, make sure you leave the draft with at least 2 guys that block 1.5 shots per game on average, or more. This is a lot easier to tackle at the center position considering the role they tend to play on their respective teams.

From a strategy perspective, it’s very important to make sure you leave your auction or snake draft with at least 2 solid options at the C position. You’ll often have players who are also eligible at PF when it comes to C, too. Don’t overlook or undervalue this component of your fantasy team.

It’s easy to only look at rebounds and points, i.e. focusing only on double-double threats. However, taking a very close look to see if the guy(s) you’re eyeing contribute in blocks (min 1.0, ideally closer to 1.5) – and then the percentages. Not often will you find many players at the C position that hurt you at FG%, but the key thing here that differentiates the good from the elite is the FT%.

Marc Gasol, for example, is a great fantasy center because he helps in all kinds of categories. His percentages are excellent, he scores, rebounds, blocks and even gets a handful of assists each game.

Important note as you read through these rankings:

Keep in mind that these rankings are being shared through the lens of a standard rotisserie league, including turnovers as a category.
