The Damn Lies Top 150, v. 1.0

The Damn Lies staff slaved over its Top 150 this year. Please don't make us do it again.

Jeff and Tom crunched a lot of damn lies and statistics to come up with their composite 2011-12 Fantasy Basketball Top 150. They realize they will have to redo the whole thing once the free agents sign. Don’t remind them.

Here’s how the sausage was made: Jeff and Tom each came up with their own Top 150 for a head-to-head league that plays with the standard nine categories (PTS, REB, AST, 3FG, STL, BLK, TO, FG%, FT%). Then the approximate average of the two lists combined to make the final Top 150. A second list for rotisserie formats was then built off of this. The rankings take into account injury risk, stat projections made for each player, and other intangibles. Many of the free agents who will sign starting Dec. 9 were projected using guesswork. The Damn Lies top 150, v. 2.0 will be here next week after the dust settles.
