2012-13 Fantasy Basketball: 5 Rookies You Want on Your Team

In fantasy basketball, any small advantage that can be gained over the competition could make the difference between a playoff berth or playing in the dreaded consolation bracket. 

One surefire way to outsmart the competition is to identify the rookies that are set for a big debut season.

This season's rookie class is loaded with great players, but it's important not to overlook proven veterans for a rookie with potential. 

For those reasons, evaluating and picking rookies is a tricky but important process.

It's also crucial to analyze the entire situation prior to counting on a rookie to perform like a fantasy veteran. 

Remember to ask yourself certain questions.

Will he start? Does his game fit into the offensive system that he is playing in? How does his head coach feel about playing rookies in big situations?

If you ponder such questions and manage to land a player or two on this list, you will be well on your way to claiming a championship.
