Fantasy Basketball 2012 - Reviewing C Rankings

Taking a look back at how we ranked the Centers coming into this shortened season, we CLEARLY under estimated DeMarcus Cousins' ability.  Ranked 20th in the preseason, mostly because of character issues and playing for a bad team, Cousins dominated the league this year, only taking a back seat to Superman himself, Dwight Howard.
