The first rule of fantasy basketball is that on-court success doesn't always translate into fantasy success.
Often, some of the big names, who are great NBA players, don't put up all of the stats across the board required to be great fantasy players. Or, sometimes the problem is that the player, who has been good in the past, has been affected by a transaction that looks to negatively influence their statistical output.
The big-name status or past performances of such players can have a tendency to mislead fantasy owners and analysts into believing that they are more valuable than they, in fact, are.
The result of this is that many players become drastically overrated (with regard to ESPN and Yahoo rankings), causing people to reach for them on draft day.
By avoiding these 10 busts, and by paying careful attention to detail, such a draft-day disaster may be prevented, helping you to take the first step toward a fantasy championship.
