10 Former NBA Fantasy Stars We're Not Touching on Draft Day in 2012-2013

In fantasy basketball, the biggest mistake anyone (and everyone) makes is over-hyping certain players.  Men that fall into this category aren't necessarily bad players, but they aren't exactly people that qualify as the main foundations of a fantasy franchise.  In other cases, these players just have limited fantasy value.  As I've mentioned before, one's approach to drafting a fantasy team should be to have players who can contribute in multiple ways and not just light up one particular statistic.

That said, this year's fantasy draft season is going to have some one-time fantasy greats who may very well find themselves on the outside looking in.  Once great picks, their stock has now fallen to the point where drafting them could just be to fill a roster spot rather than to be a solid team member.

One name that I'm convinced will drop in stock this year is Pau Gasol, whose role with the new-look Los Angeles Lakers seems unclear now that Steve Nash and Dwight Howard are in the starting lineup with him.  Unless coach Mike Brown employs a run-and-gun style offense, the 7'0" Spaniard's production could drop.

Of course, Gasol isn't the only one-time fantasy stud who will probably lose stock come draft day.
