Worst Rookies in Dynasty Leagues

When playing fantasy basketball for money in a dynasty league it’s vitally important to identify which rookies will make immediate impacts, which are going to be busts, and which will take a year or two to develop. It can be incredibly difficult to separate the project players from the busts and often it can make or break your dynasty team. So with an eye towards the future let’s take a look at the draft picks you should stay away from in your fantasy basketball for money dynasty league.

Meyers Leonard in Portland wasn’t the worst pick of the draft but unfortunately you shouldn’t count on him to develop into anything more than a backup. Big men are hard to come by and there may come a day when he becomes something worth owning in fantasy basketball for money dynasty leagues but for now he’s best left undrafted.

Detroit may have gotten great value on Andre Drummond from a potential standpoint but the question remains as to whether he’ll be able cut in the fast paced high pressure world of the NBA. His mental attitude and work ethic could hold him back and that’s, and unlike the Pistons, most people playing fantasy basketball for money won’t be willing to take that kind of risk in a dynasty league.

Next year Marquis Teague will be expected to partially replace some of Derrick Rose’s production but the long term picture for Teague is muddy. When Rose inevitably comes back from his ACL tear Teague may struggle to find his place in this offense. He could potentially be a great player coming off the bench but bench players are rarely worth the roster spot in fantasy basketball for money leagues.

Then again if Rose suffers any kind of setback at all Teague could be a rookie of the year candidate. As always when playing fantasy basketball for money in a dynasty league, it’s best to err on the side of caution.
