2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Rankings: Power Forwards 1-20 | PFs 21-40

  1. Dirk Nowitzki, Mavericks
    Nowitzki is not the three-point threat he once was and will probably see less rebounds this season with Brendan Haywood and Tyson Chandler around for an entire year. Still, Dirk is the best power forward option and worthy of a mid-first round pick.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 24.5 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.0 spg, 1.0 bpg, 70 3PTM, 48.5 FG%, 90.0 FT%

  2. Chris Bosh, Heat
    Bosh is clearly the third option of the Big 3. But when defenses are collapsing on Wade and LeBron as they drive to the basket, isn't that going to leave Bosh open for jumper after jumper? Still, his numbers will not be as high as they were when he was the alpha dog in Toronto.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 21.0 ppg, 11.0 rpg, 2.5 apg, .75 spg, 1.0 bpg, 10 3PTM, 52.5 FG%, 81.0 FT%

  3. Pau Gasol, Lakers
    Gasol is still a highly rated fantasy pick and is coming off a career-high year in rebounds. Andrew Bynum's health will directly effect Gasol's productivity. If Bynum cannot stay healthy, Pau's worth increases. If you go guard early in the first round, I would be okay with taking Gasol in the second round.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 18.5 ppg, 10.0 rpg, 3.5 apg, .50 spg, 1.75 bpg, 0 3PTM, 54.5 FG%, 77.5 FT%

  4. Amare Stoudemire, Knicks
    Amare reunites with Mike D'Antoni and his up-tempo style in the Big Apple. I cannot help but wonder how not playing alongside Steve Nash might have a negative effect on his numbers. Then again, he is the top option in New York but that could easily change if the Knicks swing a deal for ‘Melo.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 23.5 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 1.5 apg, .75 spg, 1.0 bpg, 5 3PTM, 54.0 FG%, 78.5 FT%

  5. Josh Smith, Hawks
    Smith is coming off a terrific all-around season in which he was productive in all non-shooting related categories. Since the Hawks have pretty much the same make-up as last season, expect similar numbers that could even go up a little bit if Smith can continue to mature as a player.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 16.0 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 3.5 apg, 1.50 spg, 2.00 bpg, 5 3PTM, 49.0 FG%, 63.5 FT%



  6. Kevin Love, Timberwolves
    Love averaged 14 and 11 last season despite only starting 22 times and playing about 28 minutes per game. That is the Timberwolves for you I guess... With Al Jefferson gone, Love should be a staple in the starting line-up for a Minnesota team that does not have a proven go-to scorer. His blocks and field goal percentage are low for a power forward but he makes up for it with his three-pointers.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 17.0 ppg, 12.5 rpg, 3.0 apg, .75 spg, .5 bpg, 45 3PTM, 46.5 FG%, 80.0 FT%

  7. Blake Griffin, Clippers
    You have to believe that after being forced to sit out last season due to injury, Griffin is chomping at the bit to get on the floor. He has an incredible motor and should be an immediate double-double player. Griffin was a poor free throw shooter in college to be prepared for him to hold your team back in that category.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 17.0 ppg, 10.5 rpg, 2.0 apg, 1.0 spg, 1.0 bpg, 0 3PTM, 52.5 FG%, 68.0 FT%

  8. Al Jefferson, Jazz
    Big Al gets a fresh start after Utah stole his services from the Timberwolves. He will certainly benefit from playing with one of the best point guards in the NBA but will still lose some minutes to Paul Millsap. He is a safer, more proven commodity than Griffin or Love, but I really prefer the up-side of the two guys ranked ahead of him.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 19.0 ppg, 10.0 rpg, 2.0 apg, .75 spg, 1.5 bpg, 0 3PTM, 50.5 FG%, 72.0 FT%

  9. David West, Hornets
    If 17-foot jump shots were a fantasy category, West's stock would be through the roof. He is an effective scorer and shooter but his lack of big-time rebounding numbers hurt his value. Chris Paul's happiness could also have a direct effect on West's production.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 20.0 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 2.5 apg, .75 spg, .75 bpg, 10 3PTM, 50.0 FG%, 85.5 FT%

  10. Zach Randolph, Grizzlies
    Last season I wrote that I was "avoiding Randolph like he had swine flu." Then he went out and was the ideal citizen in Memphis averaging almost 21 and 12 in 81 games. Missed the boat on that one... Seeing that Randolph is in a contract year, you would have to imagine he would be on his best behavior making him a valuable, though still dangerous, fantasy commodity.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 20.0 ppg, 11.0 rpg, 1.5 apg, 1.0 spg, .5 bpg, 20 3PTM, 47.5 FG%, 79.0 FT%



  11. Carlos Boozer, Bulls
    He is likely to miss at least the first month of the season due to a hand injury which obviously hurts his stock. Boozer finally gives the Bulls an inside scorer to run alongside Derrick Rose and the high-energy Joakim Noah. It may take him a while to get up to full speed, but he should be putting up his typical numbers once 2011 comes.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 21.0 ppg, 9.5 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.0 spg, .5 bpg, 0 3PTM, 53.0 FG%, 73.0 FT%

  12. Troy Murphy, Nets
    With Derrick Favors waiting in the wings, Murphy is a one-year rental for the Nets and could actually be traded again before the season ends. He has averaged a double-double the past two seasons while also hitting more than 100 triples. His rebounding numbers could be down a little bit, but he will still put up solid, under-appreciated numbers.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 15.0 ppg, 9.5 rpg, 2.0 apg, .75 spg, .5 bpg, 0 3PTM, 46.5 FG%, 81.5 FT%

  13. Antawn Jamison, Cavaliers
    The Cavs become Jamison and Mo Williams' team. Jamison will be counted on to lead this team and should see more looks with LeBron gone. I am a little concerned because J.J. Hickson seems poised to cut into his minutes since they won't play together on the floor often. I still think Jamison could be dealt before the season ends which would likely hurt his fantasy value.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 18.0 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 2.0 apg, 1.00 spg, .5 bpg, 95 3PTM, 46.0 FG%, 74.0 FT%

  14. LeMarcus Aldridge, Blazers
    Injury issues for Greg Oden and Joel Przybilla means more opportunity for Aldridge. If Oden and/or Przybilla are at full strength, Aldridge's minutes will take a little hit. He will never be a big rebounder or shot blocker, but knows how to score the basketball.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 18.0 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 2.0 apg, 1.00 spg, .5 bpg, 10 3PTM, 50.0 FG%, 77.5 FT%

  15. Andray Blatche, Wizards
    Washington's fire sale last season opened up a big opportunity for Blatche who made the most of it. He averaged almost 21 points and 8 boards once he became a mainstay in the starting line-up. Having a play-making point guard like John Wall should benefit Blatche who should easily post career nuimbers.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 17.5 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 1.5 apg, 1.0 spg, 1.0 bpg, 5 3PTM, 46.5 FG%, 72.0 FT%





  16. Kevin Garnett, Celtics
    There are a lot of miles on Garnett's wheels and his durability has been questionable the past two seasons as he has missed 38 games. His numbers are on a steady decline and once Kendrick Perkins get healthy, the C's will have a good amount of depth up-front when you add Shaq, Jermaine O'Neal, and Glen Davis to the equation.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 14.0 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 2.5 apg, .75 spg, 1.0 bpg, 5 3PTM, 51.5 FG%, 83.0 FT%

  17. Jeff Green, Thunder
    His all-around numbers are a great value this low, but Green is just not a normal rebounding power forward. With Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook continuing to blossom into superstars, Green may be the odd man out but will still be a solid mid-round value.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 15.5 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 1.5 apg, 1.25 spg, 1.0 bpg, 110 3PTM, 46.0 FG%, 77.0 FT%

  18. Lamar Odom, Lakers
    The more Andrew Bynum is wearing a suit on the bench, the high Odom's value will be. His versatility is an asset but his unselfishness makes him a middle of the pack power forward. I am also a little cautious of his durability since he played so many games last season and then spent the summer helping Team USA win gold at the World Championships.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 11.5 ppg, 9.0 rpg, 3.5 apg, .75 spg, .75 bpg, 50 3PTM, 48.0 FG%, 67.5 FT%

  19. Anthony Randolph, Knicks
    Randolph was a sexy pick last season but a pretty big disappointment since he only played in 33 games. His potential is through the roof especially now that he is in Mike D'Antoni's system. He is still a bench guy who will be behind Amare and Danilo Gallinari, but could finally be poised for a breakout year if given the playing time.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 14.0 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 2.0 apg, 1.0 spg, 2.0 bpg, 10 3PTM, 45.5 FG%, 78.0 FT%

  20. Al Harrington, Nuggets
    He won't need to score as much as he did in New York, but Harrington will still get his in new surroundings. With Kenyon Martin banged up, Harrington will see starter minutes to begin the year. If ‘Melo gets dealt, it will makes Harrington more valuable.

    Projected 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Stats: 14.5 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 1.5 apg, .75 spg, .5 bpg, 105 3PTM, 45.0 FG%, 76.5 FT%
