Fantasy Basketball Forwards Rankings

LeBron James is dealing with a back injury and that is going to scare away a few fantasy basketball owners.  If you are willing to risk your first round pick on him, just pray he stays healthy and avoids any long term stretches in street clothes.


Don't forget about Jabari Parker (ADP - 90) and Julius Randle (124) - both suffered season ending injuries in their rookie seasons!  Feel free to grab them slightly above their ADP.
