Goals and Motivation

  • I wanted to prepare for this upcoming fantasy basketball season by making a list of the best players I want to draft.
  • To make this possible, I took some data from Yahoo Fantasy Basketball Player stats from the 15-16 and 16-17 seasons
  • I invented my own metric Effective Points

Effective Points

How effectively used are a player's avg game fantasy points? EFP = (games_played / 82) * fantasy_points

Results

*Data here is an average of the past two seasons File
