Draft Utopia 2015 Fantasy Basketball Power Forward Rankings

Posted By: Lisa Donovan On 11/20/2014

  1. Anthony Davis: PF, New Orleans Pelicans Anthony Davis is getting double-doubles on a consistent basis. The top prospect in the class of 2011 and the 2012 NBA Draft is playing like a top 5 player in the league three year. Davis continues his monster season with the Pelicans with 25.2 points per game, 11.7 rebounds per game, 2.2 assists per game, 2.3 steals per game, and 4 blocks per game, while posting a field goal percentage of 70 percent. Davis is listening to his coach and communicating with his teammates. Davis is doing everything you want and then some showing flashes of Kevin Garnett during his glory days with the Timberwolves.

  2. Blake Griffin: PF, Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin may have the highest overall rating in the NBA Live video game series. Griffin will also probably end up snubbing Davis of a starting power forward spot in the 2015 NBA All Star Game. His 23.1 points per game are mediocre compared to what Davis is doing in New Orleans.

  3. LaMarcus Aldridge: PF, Portland Trail Blazers LaMarcus Aldridge is scoring nearly 22 points per game. Aldridge has 21.9 points per game in 2014-2015. His 8 rebounds are a game are also decent when you consider Portland is giving up the 8th fewest points in the entire NBA because Aldridge is playing next to center Robin Lopez.

  4. Dirk Nowitzki: PF, Dallas Mavericks Dirk Nowitzki has 19.6 points per game, 2.3 assists per game, and 5.4 rebounds per game. Dirk continues to deliver as the face of the franchise in Dallas. The Mavericks are first in the NBA in scoring and Nowitzki has the best all around game among power forwards in the game outside of Anthony Davis.

  5. Tim Duncan: PF, San Antonio Spurs Outside of Anthony Davis the one power forward in the NBA that gets double-doubles on a consistent basis is Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs. Duncan, the 5 time NBA Champion with the Spurs averages 14 points per game and 10.8 rebounds per game in 2014-2015. His 1.7 blocks per game is also impressive as Duncan continues to display offensive and defensive awareness as a scorer and a defensive player.

  6. Kevin Love: PF, Cleveland Cavaliers Kevin Love began the year with a bang. Love’s play declined after the team lost games when he threatened to leave. Love has 17.4 points per game and 10.3 rebounds per game. Love like Duncan and Davis is a safe bet when it comes to getting double-doubles.

  7. Greg Monroe: PF, Detroit Pistons Greg Monroe of the Detroit Pistons might be the most underrated power forward this season. The Pistons power forward is posting 15.6 points per game and 10.3 rebounds per game.

  8. Pau Gasol: PF, Chicago Bulls Pau Gasol won two NBA championships with the Los Angeles Lakers and now hopes to do the same with the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference. Gasol has 18.6 points per game and 10.6 rebounds per game. Gaol is dealing with injuries. While Love and Monroe may not have better numbers both guys are better options if you play in a dynasty league where the season never ends.

  9. Zach Randolph: PF, Memphis Grizzlies Zach Randolph compliments center Marc Gasol perfectly. Randolph has 16.5 points per game, 11.2 rebounds per game, 1.5 assists per game, and 1.1 steals per game. Randolph is off to an awesome start so far in 2014-2015.

  10. Paul Millsap: PF, Atlanta Hawks Paul Millsap made the 2014 NBA All Star Game after center Al Horford suffered an injury. Mills is averaging 16.8 points per game, 8.4 rebounds per game, 3 assists per game, 1.9 steals per game, and nearly 1 block per game. Millsap has the mental makeup of an elite power forward. Still he has not done enough to categorize himself as a top 5 power forward in an extremely competitive NBA League.

  11. Derrick Favors: PF, Utah Jazz Derrick Favors has delivered as as scorer and a rebounder after being the third overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. Coming out of Georgia Tech many scouts talked about how awesome his footwork was and that he could pass the ball by diversifying the offense like Nowitzki. Favors relies on his points per game and rebounds per game. In 2014-2015, Favors has 16.9 points per game, 8.3 rebounds per game, 1.7 assists per game, and 1.5 blocks per game. Favors will use his imposing size to cause mismatches when the Jazz do not have the ball.

  12. Serge Ibaka: PF, Oklahoma City Thunder Serge Ibaka is a beast when healthy. His 15.8 points per game and 7.5 rebounds per game are impressive in 2014-2015. Ibaka nearly has 2 blocks per game posting 1.9 blocks per game.

  13. Jared Sullinger: PF, Boston Celtics Jared Sullinger has 15.3 points per game and 8.8 rebounds per game in 2014-2015. Sullinger is beginning to play like that guy that carried the Ohio State Buckeyes to the Final 4 only to lose to Kansas.

  14. Markeiff Morris: PF, Phoenix Suns Markeiff Morris will perform at a high level just like his brother Marcus Morris.

  15. Carlos Boozer: PF, Los Angeles Lakers Carlos Boozer has only 12.9 points per game and 6 rebounds per game in 2014-2015. Usually Boozer has around 15 points per game and 7 to 8 rebounds per game. Age is finally taking its toll on Boozer. He can still play for another year or two, but at some point in 2016 or 2017 you have to turn things over to Julius Randle.

  16. Thaddeus Young: PF, Minnesota Timberwolves Thaddeus Young can be an effective scorer. He struggles to do everything else effectively. Minnesota has an art for developing power forwards through the NBA Draft. See Kevin Garnett and Kevin Love.

  17. Nene: PF, Washington Wizards Nene is one of the better bigs at power forward. His imposing size, athleticism, scoring, and rebounding make him a good late round pick up.

  18. Kenneth Fairied: PF, Denver Nuggets Kenneth Fairied is not a starter in my mind, but he has been solid enough to get the job done in Denver. So far in 2014-2015 he averages 11.6 points per game.

  19. Draymond Green: PF, Golden State Warriors Draymond Green is supposed to be a backup. He looks awesome filling in for power forward David Lee. Playing with Curry, Thompson, and Barnes will boost your overall game. Still, I feel like a team looking for a starting power forward needs to trade for Green at some point.

  20. Kevin Garnett: PF, Brooklyn Nets Kevin Garnett rounds out our top 20. His play declined once he left the Boston Celtics. Still, the rest of the power forwards average less than 10 points per game and Garnett is by far and away the best one left.
