After a short offseason, the 2020-21 NBA season is almost here, and that also means the return of fantasy basketball.
As you prepare for your fantasy basketball draft, The Duel has you covered every step of the way. Our top-100 fantasy basketball player rankings are a great place to start, but sometimes you're looking for something more specific.
With that in mind, here are the top 10 power forwards (based on Yahoo! position eligibility) for fantasy basketball drafts.
Fantasy Basketball Power Forward Rankings
10. Pascal Siakam, PF/C, Toronto Raptors
Pascal Siakam may have disappeared in the playoffs, but his regular season numbers are hard to ignore. Finally getting the keys to the offense, he averaged 22.9 points, 7.3 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 3.9 blocks per game. He also showed some expanded range, more than doubling his previous career-high by knocking down 2.2 3-pointers per game. Not much has changed that would indicate Siakam's role will decrease in the Toronto Raptors' offense this season.
9. Paul George, SF/PF, Los Angeles Clippers
8. Bam Adebayo, PF/C, Miami Heat
The 2019-20 season was a true breakout year for Bam Adebayo, who ranked eighth among all players in fantasy output. He proved to be a total stat-sheet stuffer, averaging a double-double (15.9 points and 10.2 boards) to go with 5.1 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.3 blocks in 33.6 minutes per game. The 23-year-old may not even be at his peak yet, meaning he offers some serious upside in fantasy basketball this season.
7. Jimmy Butler, SF/PF, Miami Heat
6. Joel Embiid, PF/C, Philadelphia 76ers
5. Kevin Durant, SF/PF, Brooklyn Nets
4. Jayson Tatum, SF/PF, Boston Celtics
3. Nikola Jokic, PF/C, Denver Nuggets
2. Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF/C, Milwaukee Bucks
The Milwaukee Bucks have gone all-in to surround Giannis Antetokounmpo with talent to try and persuade him to re-sign for the long-term. There's no doubting his ability to produce in every area (even improving to 1.4 made 3's per game last season), and the potential for chemistry issues with a new-look lineup after a shortened offseason is the only thing keeping him out of the top spot here.
1. Anthony Davis, PF/C, Los Angeles Lakers
