Draft Utopia 2015 Fantasy Basketball Center Rankings

Posted By: Lisa Donovan On 11/20/2014

  1. DeMarcus Cousins: C, Sacramento Kings At 7 ft 270 lbs, Cousins is the best center in the NBA. He has 22.4 points per game, 11.1 rebounds per game, 1.6 assists per game, 1.2 steals per game, and 1.4 blocks per game in 2014-2015.

  2. Dwight Howard: C, Houston Rockets Dwight Howard can get double doubles at center as well. He has 18.8 points per game and 11.3 rebounds per game in 2014-2015. Dwight has 2.3 blocks per game which may explain why the Rockets have allowed the second fewest most points per game in the entire NBA.

  3. Chris Bosh: C, Miami Heat Chris Bosh has 19.9 points per game without LeBron. Bosh got off to a real hot start in 2014-2015, but he has cooled down. Bosh was a franchise player in Toronto and growing with the Heat the past few seasons has molded him into a top 3 center in the entire NBA.

  4. Marc Gasol: C, Memphis Grizzlies Marc Gasol, the younger brother of Pau Gasol is a pretty complete center. Gasol averages 17.6 points per game, 7.4 rebounds per game, 3.3 assists per game, 1.4 steals per game, and 1.5 blocks per game. Gasol is in a contract year and the Grizzlies came off a 119 to 93 win over the Houston Rockets on Monday. He is going to play like a top 5 center this season just to get the pay day.

  5. Al Horford: C, Atlanta Hawks Horford looks solid back in his first season from an injury. He has 13.7 points per game and 6.7 rebounds per game so far in 2014-2015.

  6. Roy Hibbert: C, Indiana Pacers Roy Hibbert is one of the most dominant big men in the NBA. In 2014-2015 he has had to step up with small forward Paul George injured. So far this season, Hibbert has 13.6 points per game, 8.1 rebounds per game, and 3.2 blocks per game. Just wait until George gets back and Hibbert will do more. Hibbert had to be triple teamed in some of the Pacers games during the 2014 NBA Playoffs.

  7. Brook Lopez: C, Brooklyn Nets Brook Lopez and his brother Robin are both top 10 centers now, but I would not call either one a top 5 center. Lopez was a top 5 center before his season ending injury in 2013-2014. So far Brook Lopez is averaging 15 points per game in 2014-2015.

  8. Robin Lopez: C, Portland Trail Blazers Robin Lopez has 11.8 points per game. Robin is also doing a better job on defense than Brook with 7.1 rebounds per game. Portland ranks eighth in the NBA in opponents points per game thanks to Robin Lopez and Aldridge.

  9. Jordan Hill: C, Los Angeles Lakers Jordan Hill is underrated. He averages 13.4 points per game and 9.6 rebounds per game in 2014-2015. He has incredible versatility and athleticism and is extremely underrated.

  10. Nikola Vucevic: C, Orlando Magic The 7 ft 260 lb Nikola Vucevic is making Magic by helping Orlando Magic fans forget about Dwight Howard. Vucevic has 18.8 points per game and 11.8 rebounds per game.

  11. Nikola Pekovic: C, Minnesota Timberwolves Nikola Pekovic weighs nearly 300 lbs. He scores an average of 11.9 points per game in the regular season for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

  12. Enes Kanter: C, Utah Jazz Enes Kanter, once a candidate to challenge Derrick Williams and Kyrie Irving to be the #1 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft averages around 12.6 points per game for the Utah Jazz.

  13. Jonas Valanciunas: C, Toronto Raptors Jonas Valanciunas averages 10.8 points per game for the Toronto Raptors. Valanciunas has perfected his offensive game which is rare for a center. He may not be an elite 20 point center, but this is a guy who can be a solid starter on both ends.

  14. Marcin Gortat: C, Washington Wizards Marcin Gortat has the size of a power forward at 6-11 240 lbs. Gortat averages 13.3 points per game, 9.1 rebounds per game, and 1.3 blocks per game. Gortat can generate enough points on offense to keep you in games. In terms of physical talent and mental awareness on defense, Gortat is one of the most mentally disciplined centers in the NBA.

  15. Kelly Olynyk: C, Boston Celtics Boston drafted Kelly Olynyk after takiing Jared Sullinger in 2012. Reloading by getting bigs up front to defend the basket by preventing lay ups and easy shots on the fast break is working out great so far. Olynyk and Sullinger will be a fun duo to watch. Will not be as intense as Kevin Garnett and Kendrick Perkins. This duo will win a playoff series at some point down the road.

  16. Andre Drummond: C, Detroit Pistons Andre Drummond was supposed to be the face of the Pistons in 2014-2015, after having one of his best seasons in 2013-2014 making the 2014 NBA All Star Game. Drummond will dominate at some point later in the year. The one thing with Drummond is that he is either too cold in terms of not living up to expectations or he just tears it up and drops 23 points and 9 rebounds on you.

  17. Joakim Noah: C, Chicago Bulls For many years Joakim Noah was one of the best centers in the game. Two years ago you could have made a case for Noah being a top 5 center in the NBA. Injuries have kept Noah from producing in 2014-2015. When Noah returns to full health, his stock will skyrocket because the Bulls have an outstanding squad along with an amazing supporting cast.

  18. DeAndre Jordan: C, Los Angeles Clippers DeAndre Jordan is an excellent defensive big man. He lacks the ability to produce on offense. Still a top 20 center in the NBA when you consider he gets more scoring chances when playing with Chris Paul or Blake Griffin.

  19. Nerlens Noel: C, Philadelphia 76ers The top overall recruit in the class of 2012 played one season at Kentucky before going to the NBA. Noel missed his rookie season with an injury and is a little bit behind schedule. Noel might be raw right now, but his value is due to skyrocket at some point.

  20. Andrew Bogut: C, Golden State Warriors The former #1 overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft wraps up our list. Bogut will improve his play throughout the season. The former Buck is on a cold streak right now. Yet at the same time the Warriors are one of the most resilient teams in the NBA. If Steph Curry or Klay Thompson enters a cold streak where they get into a funk by shooting icicles or air balls then Bogut will step up to compensate for this by getting the ball rolling at the right time.
