Fantasy NBA Power Rankings: Power Forward Top 20

Fantasy Knuckleheads@_knuckleheadsCorrespondent IFebruary 27, 2010

As we close in on March, and fantasy playoffs, it’s a good time to evaluate the power rankings at each position in the NBA. We have now passed an active trade deadline that impacted a number of teams and players, as we have already seen in our Point Guard Power Rankings ,  Shooting Guard Power Rankings  and Small Forward Power Rankings . Now, let’s look at the power forwards.

As we’ve seen at other positions, there is some overlap in these rankings with other positions. In this group, there are some players that might be considered centers as well as some that would be considered more of a small forward, making the stats in the group fairly wide ranging. Generally, though, power forwards are asked to score, rebound and block shots. Most of these top 20 do that… a lot.

Here’s our Top 20 Power Forwards entering March:

1. Chris Bosh , Toronto – 24.5 ppg, 11.4 rpg, 2.3 apg, 1.1 bpg

Wild Card!

Antawn Jamison, Cleveland – he was having a solid season in Washington, but his role and scoring load could be inconsistent next to LeBron. Owners beware.
